Burton Farmers' Club On the 7th Inst. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Stan lake, of Middlebury, were "at home" to the Burton Farmers' Club. The roll call showed the absence of all the gentlemen who were appointed to speak upon the general topic of the day for that side of the house, and it was therefore de cided to defer Its discussion until the next meeting, when the delinquents will be ex pected to lead in the discussion, as previous ly arranged. Mrs. C. R. Woodin read a paper upon the subject, "Are the people of today happier than they were fifty years ago?" She be lieves that with all of the advantages of the present, people really enjoy themselves no better now than they did fifty years ago. The old saying Is true, "the more we have the more we want." It is also true that the more our neighbors have the more we want. Those who have much want more and those who have little find it hard to enjoy that little, and be behind tho times In the matter of dress, living and entertainments, while in the earlier days there was less care and responsibility than now. She spoke of the tendency of the people of today to go in debt for the purpose of keeping up with the times, and then spending the rest of their lives paying interest and borrowing trouble about the principal. Mrs. Randall thought the old-times were the happier. She gave her experience in making her first rag carpet and said she had never enjoyed any other carpet so well as she did that. Representa tive Sbepard in speaking of his boyhood life said a Webster's spelling book and one other volume, constituted bis library; that once when bis father took a load of grain to Pon tiac to market, be brought back for him a history and a geography, and the pleasure he derived from them was greater than words could tell. Pontlac was Owosso's nearest market then and at Pontlac was its nearest postofflce. Mrs. Rose said that one great source of happiness In the lives of our early settlers consisted in the thought that they were building up homes for themselves for their declining years, and for their chil dren who would occupy them after they were gone. The best plan for farm home lawns was discussed quite extensively. L. S Bowles would have the lawn extend on three sides of the house forty or forty-five feet, with a gradual descent to the highway. There should be trees outside this space, but neith er trees nor shrubs within, nothing to ob struct the view. The lawn mower should be in frequent uee, ana n mere were no water works available, there should be a shower once In two or three weeks to keep up the verdure of the smoothly shaven grass. The noKree Idea met with a deal of op position. In fact, all who expressed them selves after. the first speaker were strongly In favor of having a few trees near the house, and many of the ladies would have Howers as well as trees. Mrs. Bowles had noticed that her husband always on a hot day took his rest under the shade of a tree Mr. Randall was asked the best method to train children, by precept, example, or the rod? He said precept and example should be in accord, and that kindness and love should be the controllng power; that if parents would govern themselves there would be very little, If any, use for the rod. Mrs Myrtle Merrill gave a recitation en titled, "The Amen Corner." The club adjourned to meet at the resi dence of L. 8. Bowles the first Thursday in November. S. G. Literary Entertainment.

Edward and Fred Sweeney plead guilty in Justice McCaughna's court, Wednesday, to assaulting Charles Rickllng. All the par ties had attended the party at Arbelter hall, where the trouble began. Rickllng did not desire to engage in any disturbance and kept away from the brothers as much as possible. When he left for home the Swee- neya followed him, attacking and pounding him In a terrible manner and arousing the entire neighborhood In the vicinity of Stew art and Shiawassee street corners by their profane and Indecent language. Justice McCaughna looked Into the case carefully and then very properly fined the Sweeneys 825 each and 86 costs. Tine Times desires to commend Justice McCaughna for his ac tion. A few such fines will put an end to a (treat deal of rowdyism.
