CLAIR COUNTY, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, May 18, 1922. $2.00 Per Year In Advance CANNING FACTORY TO RUN THIS YEAR Plenty of Acreage Secured for Season's Pack, and Prospects Look Very Bright The public meeting at the Audi torium last Friday evening was not as well attended as hoped for, but nevertheless considerable en thusiasm was" shown. Mr. Fred J. Strong, receiver for the Michigan . Canned Food Co., was present and explained to those interested in the growing of peas that if enough acreage could be secured for this season the Yale factory would operate this year. A large acreage was taken and Saturday seed was given out and planted. And since that time many more farmers have since expressed their willingness to put in a crop of peas, in fact more acreage is in sight than can be taken care of. It is now an assured fact that the Yale plant of the Michigan Canned Food Co. will be a busy place again during the season, giving employment to a large number of people. Mr. Strong is a man well post ed in the canning business, having had considerable experience in this line. He owns two canning factories in Wisconsin which are success ful, and says that under compe tent management there isn't a question of doubt but that the Yde plant will pay out. Here'a hoping.

Why The Editor Left Town Somebody sent the editor of the Poketown Gazette a few bot tles of home brew, relates the Dallas Mirror. The same day he received for publication a wed ding announcement and a public sale notice. Here are the results: William Smith and Miss Mary Anderson were disposed of at public auction at my farm 1 mile east of town. She wore a beau tiful cluster of roses on her breast and two white calves, be fore a background of farm imple ments too numerous to mention in the presence of about CO guests including 2 milch cows, G mules and 1 bobsled. Reverend Jackson tied the nuptial knot with 200 feet of hay rope, and the bridal couple left on one good JoKn Deere gang plow for an extended trip with terms to suit the pur chasers. They will be at home to their friends with one baby bug gy and a few kitchen utensils after 10 months from date of sale to responsible parties and some 50 chickens." The business man who makcj the biggest success is the one who advertises all the time. MOTHER AND DAUGHTER GATHERING FRIDAY EVE. Nearly two hundred mothers and daughters met at the Metho dist Episcopal church on Friday evening, May 12th at G:30, and repaired to the dining room where all were seated at tables decor ated with runners of yellow crepe paper and adorned with bouquets of yellow tulips , and white lilacs. The walls of the room were tastefully decorated with the same colors. After the "invocation by Mrs. F. D. Mumby all were quickly and efficiently waited upon by a corps of young men to a banquet in three courses, while an orchestra provided excellent music. Mr. Drayton, Willard Gough and Ar chie Ludington sang "That Won derful Mother of Mine." Mrs. R.E. Andreae opened the after-dinner program with a happy little wel coming speech, honoring mothers by quoting that as "God could not be everywhere, therefore He made Mothers." She introduced the principal speaker, Mrs. R.G. Bur well, from Port Huron, who gave an address on the subject 'Mother Love and Daughter Worth." There was splendid truth in the many good things that Mrs. Burwcll said, and man' thoughts left for both mother and daugh ter which should help to strength en the love of the one and the worth of the other. Frances Andreae sang two numbers, "Sing ! Sing ! Birds on the Wing," and "The Little Brown Owl", so pleasingly that she was persuaded to give an encore. Doris Parks recited the quaint little poem, "I dreamed that I was Mother dear, and Mother dear was I." Mrs. A. T. Greenman spoke in intelligently and charmingly on the subject of "Daughter." A selected piano solo by Nila Holden was much appreciated. This was followed by a reading from Mrs. C. T. Peacock, who gave Edgar Guest's "She othered Five," and also responded with another of Guest's poems. The last number of the eve ning's entertainment was given by Neva Ostrander, who sang (a) "Sunshine Song," and (b) "The Mother Rose," with Mrs. Staley accompanist.

They sing joyously of "milk" at the picnic and sun shine and rain ."in the depths of the caves." They go ghost hunt ing and candles, and then there is that terrible (comic) initiation. The music is by that practical hand, Dr. W. Rhys-Herbert, who has so often pleased you in the past with his attractive melodies.

This is my first ven ture into the ranks of newspaper publishers, so I've got to make it a successful one. So many Lexington folks have got the habit of bringing in the news items that they run across that the news almost seems to come in by itself. The merchants of the town realize the value of advertising in their home paper, and so I don't have to go ad hunt ing. I've worked at the trade for about five yeais now, so I'm able to take care of that part of the work getting the paper out and giving job work the attention it needs. There's a rather nice print shop here to work in, and Lex ington seems like a fine town. The lake looks mighty good, too, though I haven't been in it yet. I like this place, and I'm trying to make the place like me. Come in and get better ac quainted. I may be too busy to talk to you, but I'm never so busy I can't listen to you. I want to know folks so they won't have to "Mr." me, I'm more used to being called Jack Spencer The above item is taken from the Lexington News, and Jack has many young friends in Yale, all of whom will be glad to know that he is making a good start in his chosen profession.
