Guns were at onoe brought into play and bruin became a living tar get. Unmindful of this, the bear sauntered along the road for some distance, while : repeated shots were . fired. Finally the bear walked off the road and disappeared in the bush, wearing a "smile that won't come . off.". , The boys are wondering why. But then of course it was "the fault of the gun.

' SUBSCRIBE FOR THE SENTINEL, ONLY Cl60 LOCKJAW MAT EX PREVENTED." Care Should Be Exercised la Use of Fireworks, July 4th. More deaths from lockjaw result! from the celebration of the Fourth j of July than from any other cause. Not only in Michigan, but through out the country, the number of deaths from lockjaw in the month of July is greater than in any other month of the year. That this increase in the number of fatalities can be prevented, is conceded, and that It should be prevented is the responsibility of the general public. The records of death for the last three years in the. United States show that fatalities from tetanus, popularly known as "lockjaw," in variably follows in case of wounds from explosions of blank cartridges, toy pistols, giant firecrackers, can non firecrackers, torpedo-canes and pin wheels. The common use of these articles, by children as well as adults, in the celebration of In dependence Day, readily explains the unusual death rate from tetanus in the month of July. In the ktate of Michigan, the use of blank cart ridges, by, children, is not alone a great risk,but a criminal risk, being a direct violation of the law. In 1883, the legislature passed a law to prevent the sale and use of such articles to such young children as follows: Sec. 1. Thai no person shall sell, give, or furnish to any cbild under the age of thirteen years any cart ridge of any form or material.or any pistol, gun or other mechanical con trivance, specially arrange or desig nated for the explosion of the same. Sec. 2. Any person violating any of the provisions of the foregoing section, shall be deemed guilty or misdemeanor, and upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine of not less than ten dollars, nor more than fifty dollars, and costs of prosecution, or imprisonment in the county jail not less than ten days nor nor more than ninety days, or both such fine, and im prisonment, in the dlscrectlon of the court. . - Sec. 3. It shall be unlawful for any person under the age of thirteen years, to have in possession, or use any of the articles named in section one of this act!. It is believed that if , people generally know of this law. and also know.the real danger resulting from the use of certain fireworks, they will exercise the care and descretlon necessary to protect their children and themselves from becoming vic tims of improper use of explosives. During the month of July in Michigan three years ago there were twenty-seven deaths from tetanus, resulting from wounds received from handling fireworks, and in the United States, the number of deaths from the same cause was 415. In 1904, in Michigan, the number of deaths from the same cause, in July, was 5, in the United States, 105. In 1905. the number of deaths in Michigan from the same cause was 7; in the United States 104. It is at .once seen that the number of deaths both in our own state and throughout the country, in 1903, greatly exceeded the number of deaths occurring either in 1904 or 1905. After the fatalities were re corded in 1903, the great crusade against the use of improper fireworks on the Fo urtb of July began; and the de crease in the two following years In the number of deaths Is due chief ly to the aroused public sentiment against such use, and the passing of ordinances in many ,' localities against such use.

South Shore'a New Time Table Contains Mass of Information. ' - An (novation has been introduced by Mart Adson, general passenger agent of the Dulutb, South Shore & Atlantic, in anew folder of the com pany just issued, says the Dulutb News-Tribune. The somewhat jeal ous policy hitherto adopted by the roads in mating their own lines "the only thing," has been dropped and a vast amount of information regarding other lines and tributary routes which the traveler may neCd is included. To thousands of tour ists and travelers this will come as a welcome relief from the "one and only line system" used in the past by the various roads. . . For instance the folder gives all the connecting routes both east and west and the time made and the sleeping and dining car accommoda tions and different train service be tween Dulutb and the Twin Cities on all the lines. Monday the company started its new service ' between Dulutb. and Boston by way -of Montreal. Not less than $70,000 has been expended in making this train the most up-to-date in the world as the sleepers and diners have been equipped regard less of cost, and a traveler can board the train at Dulutb and re main in the same coach until Mont real or Boston is reached. The Bos ton sleeper is attached to the train at Sault Ste. Marie. Eeaolntlon of Condolence. Hall of L'Anse Lodge.No. U4,A O. U.
