Mr. Smith was en route to Mexico, . where he is being sent to look oyer ' some mining properties located there. He expects to be absent for ..some time. Through an oversight in compiling the results of the township elections, an error crept into our columns . which we take this time to cor rect. The total number of votes which were given Frank W. Foote, in both precincts, should have read 148 instead of 102. As will be noted from last week's issue, there will be no changes in tbe personnel of tbe Baraga county board of supervisors. Those who will comprise the board are Olof W. Been, Arvon; Fred W. Schwalm, Baraga; John Elf man, Covington; Frank W. Foote, L'Anse, and Sam uel T. McKercher, of Spurr. A valuable horse belonging to S. D. Murphy was quite badly injured Sunday afternoon by being struck by the train. Tbe animal had strayed onto tbe track and in an attempt to cross a culvert had become entan gled between the ties. Before the horse could extricate itself the train struck it; but fortunately was not killed. ' It is understood that the manage ment of tbe High School basket ball team has made a reply to tbe broad challenge of the Crystal Falls team which appeared in these columns last week. It appears that the L'Anse team has endeavored on sev eral occasions to get a game with tbe Crystal Falls team, but have been unable to do so. Now the oppor tunity has agaia presented itself to the boys and it has been taken up. Now it is up to the hematite city team to" show the color of their goods. Instead of saying "Skldoo" the person who wishes to keep his slang pure and op-to-date advises his an noyer to "go roll "your hoop. " Dol lars are not referred to any more in polite society as "cartwheels" or "disks," but are called "iron men." That old favorite, "cut it out," every one will be glad to learn has beea succeeded by "go can it," and in stead of "imbibing too freely," you must "lick up tbe wealthy water." Thie will be a relief, but there is still the English language for those who prefer it. After July 1st ordinary stamps nay be used in place of a special de livery stamp and people will not be compelled to visit a postoffice tn order , to have letters or packages sent by special delivery. In addition v to the 8 tamps required to transmit any letter or package or matter through the mails, there must be at tached to the envelope or covering ten cents' worth of ordinary stamps of any denomination,' with tbe words "Special Delivery" or their equiva lent, written or printed on tbe en velope or covering under such regu lations as the postmaster general may prescribe. Mail that provided will he handled, transmitted and de livered exactly as though it bore the ;fpilation special delivery stamp. 1 TRAWS .TIED up ran hois. One of the Biggest Snow Storms of the Season Visits Tils Section the C Fore r&rt of the Week. One of the worst storms ex peri enced by tbe railroads in year oc curred the fore part of the week. Beginning on Sunday, there whs a slight flurry which gradully increa ed until Tuesday, when It reached Its height, and for three days tied up all traffic along the South Short railroad lines from Houghton lo Nestoria. Coming at this late day, the rail roads were unable to cope with s the situation to a great extent, the pleasant weather or the previous week having induced them to re- movejthe plows from the engines,and otherwise prepare for tbe approach ing spring's work. From Monday evening until Tuea- day evening not a single train passed through this section of the road, and the only one to reach Houghton during that tinw was one which bad left there' twelve bourn before and after remaining at Ke weenaw Bay the greater part of the time was finally enabled to return to the copper country. Tbe train which left tbe copper country at 10:20 Monday evening met its troubles in attempting to make L'Anse hill. Several efforts were made to reach Summit, but each , time they were competed to return to this station, due to the fact that so much, snow bad been heaped upon the track that it was impossible to keep up fires or steam. Finally all further trials were aban doned and the train was tied up at this village, where it remained un til tbe track could be cleared. Tbe St. Paul train; after coming as far as Nestoria returned to Cham pion, thence to Chicago, while the Northwestern or rather tbe South Shore with Northwestern connec tions remained at Nestoria and did not arrive here until Wednesday morning. All other trains ran on about the same schedule, being from five to eight hours late. Normal conditions were again re sumed Thursday morning, the storm having abated and the tracks cleared aloog tbe, storas swept district. rrominent Lumberman Dies. James B.

Chicago, Wednes day afternoon of heart trouble. Mr. Goodman bad 'resided in Marinette during the past six years, and the remains were brought to that city for burial. . Sugar Beet Industry. Work will be started shortly by tbe Menominee Riyer Sugar Com pany upon the shipment of seed to farmers in various portions of the country, who. are to raise sugar beet for them during tbe coming season, says tbe Menominee County Journal. In spite of tbe fact that last year was a banner year in the raising of beets in this section, the present year has it beaten in tbe , amount of acreage secured by tbe factory. Tbe fleldmen have been at work ever since tbe close of the factory last fall and tbey have secured an acre age which Is larger than it has been in any single year since the start of tbe factory. , ' The territory of the Menominee factory runs as far south as Sheboy gan and as far north as Lake Super ior, and next fall beets will be com ing in from' farmers in this section. The mechanics are now repairing and cleaning up the big plant pre paratory to the big run next season. Draft Eorses for Sale. I have several draft and farm horses for sale at moderate prices.' M.

When tbe work is completed it is expected that the service will be of tbe best. A communication was received the fore part of the week by tber L'Anse Board of Education from Supt. W J. Morrison, stating that be does not desire to stay another year. This announcement comes as a surprise to tbe majority of the citizens, for it was generally supposed that Mr. Morrison would remain in L'Anse permanently. . Wednesday morning, the case of Crebassa vs. Cbarette, which was tried in justice court Saturday last, was brought to a close, and resulted in both parties retaining the re spective horses which they bad some time ago taken in trade, and also each sharing in the settlement of the costs incurred by the suit. Tbe Woman's Home Missionary Society met at the home of Mrs. John Campbell, Thursday afternoon. Interesting papers were read by Mesdames Campbell, Jackman and Aldnch. At the close of the meet ing delicious refreshments were served, and an enjoyable social hour spent.". . Some people think it a mystery that notwithstanding good advice their boys grow up to be wild and reckless young men. If these boys were taught from infancy that borne was the proper place for them after dark, rather than prowling around thettreets, annoying well and sick people alike, much of this mystery might be explained, and young men with better moral . character and more intelligent minds would be the result. No parents need expect pure morals in a boy that loafs around tbe streets at night, even if he does go to Sunday school.
