Gov. Rich has Issued the following
To the People of the State of Michigan:
In accordance with a custom honored In
Its obnHvaiice, I hereby designate Thurs
day, November 26th, as a day of thanks
giving. Upon that day let all secular business be
laid aside, and the day be devoted to exer
cise and recreation suitable to the occasion.
Religious and political differences of opinion
should be forgotten, and as citizens of a
common country, alike interested in up
holding its honor and malntalnlcg Its laws,
let us assemble in our houses of worship
and in grateful recognition of the manifold
blessings Providence has showered upon
us, reverently thank God for the peace and
prosperity which have fallen to our lot.
The poor and unfortunate should not be
forgotten, and acts of kindness done to
those who do not share in the abundance
which has blessed us as a people, will prove
that It is Indeed more blessed to give than
to receive, and make more joyous the reun
Ion about the family hearthstones.

There seems to be' some discrepancy be'
tweea the number of votes cast in the fourth

but it is explained by the fact that a num

Charity Masked Ball.
Cold weather is hard on the poor and as
this winter Is fast bringing its burden of
rain and snow storms, those who sit by
glowing hearths and sleep in comfortable
beds 6hould consider the needs of their less
fortunate brethren, not requiring of them
an Immaculate record before assistance Is
That this thought is not forgotten is
evinced by the fact that leading ladies of
Owosso society have planned a masked ball
for Wednesday night at the armory, music
to be furnished by Wesener's orchestra.
The dancing tickets will be $1.00 each 'or
gentlemen and 25 cents for ladies, all parties
to be Identified before admission to the audi
torlum. Gallery tickets Including refresh'
ments will be 25 cents each.
Every endeavor will be made to make
this ball first-class In every particular and
those who purchase tickets may be assured
that the proceeds of the ball will be used to
assist the deserving poor of the city.

prettily decorated with evergreens, bunting
and portieres, while the chairs and stands
were so disposed as to give the church as
homelike an appearance as possible. A
miscellaneous program and substantial re

being that the weather prevented so many
of the leaguers from being present.

SALUTED BY THE ENEMY.
A Queer Hit of Courtesy From th Con
federates at Chattanooga.
As soon us communication had been
opened with our bnse of supplies, General
Grant manifested an eagerness to acquaint
himself minutely with tho position of tho
enemy, with a view to taking tho offen
sive. One morning he started toward our
right with several staff officers, to make a
personal examination of that portion of
the lino. When ho came In sight of Chat
tanooga crock, which separated our pickets
from those of tho enemy, ho directed those
who had accompanied him to halt and re
main out of sight whilo he advanced alono,
which ho supposed ho could do without at
tracting much attention.
The pickets were within hailing distance
of ono another on opposite banks of tho
creek. They had established a temporary
truce on their own responsibility, and the
men of each army wcro allowed to got wa
ter from tho same stream without being
fired upon by those on the other sldo. A
sentinel of our picket guard recognized
General Grunt as he approached, and gave
tho customary cry, "Turn out tho guard
commanding general I" The enemy on
tho opposlto side of the creek evidently
heard the wonls, and one of his sentinels
cried out, "lurn out the guard General
Grant 1" Tho Confederate guurd took up
the joke and promptly formed, facing our
line, and presented arms. The general
returned tho saluto by lifting his hat, the
guard was then dismissed, and he con
tinued his ride toward our left. We knew
that wo wcro engaged in a oivil war, but
such civility largely exceeded our expecta
tions. -"Campaigning With Grant," by

The Strange Affliction of
He Stopped Growing-Limbs Became Useless and
He was Unable to Walk-IIis Cure Brought
About in a Singular Manner.
From the Observer,
Hearing that a child scar Iron Station,
Lincoln County, had been greatly benefited
by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People, a representative of the Observer
went thither to see and ascertain the extent
of the benefit the child had received.
Riding out on December 5, 1895, to a little
country cottaga in the pine woods, a mile
distant from Iron Station, the reporter saw
a bright-faced, young woman, a pure anglo
laxon type with light hair and blue eyes,
itanding in the doorway with two plump,
rosy-cheeked children half hiding Dehind
her dress. Mentioning that he was looking
for a family of Robinsons, the woman
teemed at first a little suspicious.
" You're a stranger in my eye," she said.
"I am trying to find a child named Wil
bur Robinson, who was greatly benefited by
Dr. Williams Pink Pills for Pale People."
The young mother smiled and a pleased
look came into her eyes as shesaid "come in,"
and added, "I guess that's the one," pointing
to the younger of the two little boys.
It was an humble home, the family being
composed of that sturdy farming class that
F;oes to make up one of the strongest and
ruest types of North Carolina's good people.
The husband, Robert O. Robinson, runs the
farm of 200 acres, but was oif to the mill at
The mother, Carrie L. Robinson, told a
remarkable story of the cure of her little
boy from the eflects of la grippe. Her aged,
white-haired mother, Mrs. Sarah A. Randy,
tat near and emphasized every word
of the daughter. The little boy, Wilbur,
who owed his recovery to Dr. Williams'
effective remedy, played about the house
and yard, and was into every conceivable
kind of mischief. It really seemed that he
must have taken too many of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills so great was the energy with
which he prosecuted his pranks. Three
times his mother had to stop her conversa
tion and rush out to rescue the reporter's
bicycle, which was leaning ngninst the honso
outside, and with which Wilbur was be
coming almost too familiar.
This is the story the mother told :
"Wilbur was born August 8, 1893. He
was a stout, healthy boy till he was nearly
five months old. Between Christmas and
New Year's he took tho grippe. A physician
at Iron Station attended him, and he was
supposed to have recovered. But the after
effects of the malady lingered with disas
trous results. In March, 1894, his parents
noticed that he could not stand upon his
feet, although before his taking the grippe
he could do so easily. He could not bear
the weight of his body on his feet ; his legs
were not growing any nor the muscle in
them developing. He was not treated, how
ever, till in the fall, about the last of Octo
ber. When Mr. Robi nson took his cotton to
Lincolnton, the county seat, he also carried
his baby along, and a Lincolnton physician
described for nim. recommending a lotion
or rubbing his limbs. This helped the
child only temporarily. Twice afterward
this physician was consulted. He told the
parents that the child might some dav be
able to walk and again he might not. They
would just have to let him "grow along,"
as the mother expressed it, and see what
developed. At this period the child's legs
appeared to be shrunken. As his mother
says they were " as soft as cotton." Here
was a boy fourteen months old, who not only
could not walk, but could not bear his weight
on his feet.
Ia some way they do not know how a
amphlet found its way to the Robinson
amily. Old Mrs. Bandy fished it out of a
bureau drawer. It had the picture of two
dogs peeping over a fence on one cover, and
on the other a herd of cows drinking in a
cool stream near a bridge. Both on the
fence and on the bridge, on the respective

Pills for Pale People." "
"When I read that those pills would build
up the bone. I felt that they were the things
for Wilbur," said his mother.
"Old Mrs. Bandy sat up nearly all of one
night reading this pamphlet, with all the
testimonials it contained. A few days after
they sent to one of the two village stores
and got two boxes of the pills. This was
about the last of November, 1894. Before
he had finished taking the first box, the
little fellow was able to bear his weight on
his feet, and before the second box was all
gone, he could hold a chair before him and
push it across the floor.
"We began by giving him a third of a pill
at a time, afterward increasing the dose to
a half, so they held out a long time," said
his mother. "We commenced the second
box in January, this year. We had to send
to Lincolnton, eight miles away, to get the
next boxes. After taking the third box, in
March, the child began to go a few steps at
a time, but he didn't walk by himself till
in September. The fourth box, or part of it,
was administered in August."
The testimony of the mother was that the
child's appetite and, indeed, his whole ays
tem was helped by the use of the pills.
Mrs. Bandy, who had been looking over
a sort of diary she keeps, at this point In the
conversation, read this entry: "Sept. the 25th.
Wilbur begins to walk alone by himself."
"After he once learned to walk," said his
mother, "we could hardly keep him in sight
of the house, and he was cured by four boxes,
lacking ten pills. Mother says, and always
has said, the Lord directed somebody to
send us that pamphlet of Dr. Williams."
"You really believe the child's cure is
due to Dr. Williams' Pills? " was asked. .
"I am really convinced the pills cured
him," the mother answered. "I haven't
the slightest doubt about it."
And the boy's grandmother chimed in:
"I'm just as sure of it as I am of living.
I'll take an oath on the Bible that that 13
what did it."
The neighbors in all tho section around
the little village of Iron Station know and
talk about the remarkable cure of this baby,
who might have been a cripple for life, had
he not, even at the ope or two years, one
month and seventeen days, been enabled to
walk for the first time by the use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.
This story may seem to the reader like a
fabrication, but is told as the child's mother
told it to the reporter. In order to show
their appreciation, Mrs. Robinson furnished
the following testimonial and signed it. (She
says she is willing at any time to make
sworn affidavit to her statements):
Iron Station, Lincoln Co., N. C,
Pecember 5, 1895.
My infant son, Wilbur Lee, rendered nn
able to learn to walk, by the effects of the
