Eliza Steadman was born in Ireland.
February 28, 1843. When 15 years old
she came to Michigan, settling in
(Jreenwood township. She was mar
ried to John Hicks May 14, 18C5. Unto
this union there were born three chil
dren, John, Jennie and one dying in
infancy. The subject of this notice
had been sick a long time, but her ill
ness was borne with great patience
and fortitude. She died Tuesday, Feb.
27, 1900, lacking one day of being 58
years old. The interment was made in
Elmwood cemetery, the mother being
laid beside the son, John, who had pre
ceded her to the better land by only a
few days. The funeral was conducted
by Itev. J. A. Howe. The family have
the heartfelt sympathy of all in this,
their double bereavement.
A Card of Thanks.
I take this method of thanking my
good neighbors and friends, the F. St
A. M. brethren and the church, for
their untiring kindness and helpful aid
and sympathy during the recent sick
ness and death of my beloved wife and
dear son, John. I assure these one
and all that their help was greatly and
truly appreciated in the time of deep
and multiplied sorrow.
Gas and Guessing.
It may, or it may not be true; there
fore believe or do not believe, just as it
suits you. We give it just as we got
it, with the advice that none of our
readers tell it to any one as true with
out further investigation. The story
is to the effect that some time ago a
Sanilac Centre man was in Yale, at
which time he told an Expositor re
porter that a certain party had told
him, which certain party had been told
by another certain party that a great
railroad scheme was sprouting and
that Sanilac Centre, Yale, Peck, and
other points were in it dead sure. It
is the talk, says this knowing one, that
the Pere Marquette will abandon a
part of its line between Pad Axe and
Palms, and instead will run a new line
south to Sanilac Centre and Peck, con
necting for Port Huron and Saginaw
at Yale. Now, we ask, what is there
certain about this scheme t In the
first place, the talk is an absoluto cer
tainty and can be relied on as talk.
In the second place: tho plan con
summated would give the P. M. Com
pany solid control of the Thumb, shut
ting out forever all schemes for oppo
sition lines. With such a plan, it is
quite true, the cost of operating the
separate line would not be materially
Increased over the present plan of con
necting at Palms, and it would be an
immense advantage for all Saginaw
passenger and freight traffic. Further,
this deponent sayeth not.

It has been reported throughout the
village that the firm of C. Andreae &
