hier, 8, won of Mr. and Mrs. Melvin
Harmer is held under observation
at his home here while the office
of the state chemist determines if
a small kitten which scratched
and bit him Saturday died of hy
drophobia. The boy was attempting to
catch the kitten Saturday when
it scratched his face and bit his
finger. The kitten died suddenly
Saturday night. The boy's finger,
which had at first not exhibited
alarming symptoms, swelled to ab
normal size, and a physician was
called. Disapearance of the swell
ing and symptoms of stomach
trouble led to the belief that hy
drophobia was the cause of the
cat's death and may have been
transmitted to the boy.
The head of the dead kitten was
rent to the state department Mon
day and the physician in charge
of the case is awaiting reply from
the state toxicologists.

A GLADSOME GATHERING
As guests of Mrs. Edward An
dreao and Mrs. J. E. Staley, a
number of ladies from Yale were
invited to Cedarwood to spend all
day Friday for the pleasure of
Sue Evans.
The ladies of one auto arrayed
themselvies in old-fashioned, lu
dicrous attire, the driver in her
husbands sport clothes, and they
surely made the hit of the season
as they drove through the country,
surprising the natives into undue
courtesy and' gallantry by their
grand appearance, and convulsing
the residents of Cedarwood, their
hostesses and other guests with
gales of laughter and apprecia
tion. Of course they had their pic
tures taken. Ask to sec one.
The day was one long pleasure.
Two big, wonderful meals filled
them to repletion, but halted not
the overflowing spirits.
Bathing and other sports occu
pied the afternoon and finally all
arrived home again, tired, but
still happy.
HACK UP YOUR ROOST
A city exchange remarks that
some towns spend more time in
sounding their slogans than they
do in clearing their streets. It is
quite true to the detriment of he
towns. Glowing slogans cause
the stranger to expect something
out of the ordinary, ai 1 when he
learns his mistake his interest
ceases to exist. Fine words on
the wings of the wind travel a
long way but a clean street leaves
a more lasting impression.
Mayor Jacobs suggests that
Yale business men and household
ers start a clean-up movement and
make their premises neat and at
tractive. Don't delay this work
for the summer will soon be over.
Get busy right away.

GRAPES AND POULTRY
Algonac, July 20 A new agri
cultural development in Clay
township is forecast as the result
of the transfer of considerable
acreage near here to several De
troit purchasers who will engage
in the cultivation of grapes and
the raising of poultry.
The soil here is excellent for
the growing of vines, an experi
mental vineyard of 150 vines
planted six years ago by Mayor
Karl A. Haulter having produced
two and one half tons of market
able grapes in 1921. Impressed by
the success of this experiment
the new arrivals are with one ex
ception planning to plant vines
which are scheduled to bear in
two years time. Niagara and
Concords will be planted at first.
The one man who will not en
gage in the cultivation of grapes
is establishing a large market
poultry farm which will bo stock
ed next week with 3,500 birds.
No breeding operations will be
conducted at the farm, the owner
making a specialty of raising
broilers for market from incubat
or chicks.

PUT OFF 'TIL NEXT APRIL
The proposed amendment to
the state constitution that would
require all children of school age
to attend public schools, popular
ly known as the anti-parochial
school amendment, will not go on
the ballot in Michigan this year,
it was announced by James Ham
ilton, of Detroit, one of the spon
sors of .the proposed amendment.
As the time limit for filing con
stitutional amendments has ex
pired, Mr. Hamilton stated that
petitions bearing between 110,000
to 112,000 signatures would not
be filed at Imsing. He added,
however, that "campaign of ed
ucation" will be conducted thru
the winter months and the amend
ment brought before the voters
next April.
"It has been felt that a cam
paign of education through the
four winter months will conduce
largely to the success of the a
mendment next spring," Mr. Ham
ilton declared. He added that no
effort to obtain additional signa
tures to the initiatory petitions
had been made during the past
two months.
While the petitions already cir
culated have considerably more
than 105,800 signatures necessary
to qualify the proposal for a place
on the ballot, Mr. Hamilton said,
a much larger number will be for
warded to provide against the pos
sible rejection of any great per
centage of them, '
