STKG FOR cfl;jvtfjno:i Baraga, County Hires of Lady Macca bees Making Every Effort to et Required Membership. Since the recent visit of Great Lieutenant Commander Mrs. Anna Hoi the, of Muskegon, some few weeks ago, a renewed interest and re-awakening has taken place in the ranks of the . Lady Maccabees throughout Baraga county. Tbe cause for this revival of en thusiasm is due to tbe fact that if Baraga county is able to secure the required number of members it will be entitled o hold a county conven tion, and thus give the county a representation in the state conven tion to be held in Detroit in 1908. Io order to gain the required num ber, which is given as two hundred members. District Deputy Mrs. Carrie Eeough, of Marquette, re turned Monday to L'Aose for the purpose of continuing the class work and organizing a hive in Pequaming. In order that such convention may be held i.n the county, it ill new necessary to have the required me bership oy March 1st, 1908, and if such can be procured the convention will take plaee in L'Anse during March month, tbe bonor being con ferred upon Meadow Broak Hive, a it holds the oldest charter in the county. In many instances several villages will combine, as in the instance of Keweenaw Bay. The members se cured at that place will join the Baraga lodge, while those in Skanee and other surrounding places will unite with L'Anse or Pequaming, if the latter is successfully launched. Tbe outlook at present is very en couraging to those who have tbe work in charge, and the manner in which the meetings of the esrab- lished hivesare being attende'd is very gratijying to the head officers of tbe order. Smokers of good tnste may have their desires satisfied at the cigar stand at Town Hall. Nov 23. A Welcome Resolution. At a recent meeting of the council of tbe village of L'Aose, a resolution was passed to the effect that the electric lights would be operated for the next few months until one o'clock in tbe morning and that the service would be resumed again at five o'clock a. m. and continue until day light. This action on the part of t he council is an appreciative one from the subscribers point of view, as tbe use of tbe lights io tbe early hours of the day are not only a necessity but a great convenience.

Two proposals for the regulation of tbe liquor traffic were among the twenty-six propositions that 'were submitted Wednesday to the consti tutional convention. F. J.

The sale of liquor is prohibited in townships and in villages .of less than 500 peo- nip and it Ik nrnhihltPil n. wll At Ann Arbor.
