CLAIR COUNTY, MICHIGAN, THURSDAY, September 14, 1922 $2.00 Per Year in Advance Yale Will Have Big Fair and Night Carnival SEPTEMBER 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th ARE THE DATES SET FOR THE BIG EVENT.--MANY BIG ATTRACTIONS COMING It is twelve years since there has been a fair in St. Clair county and twenty-four since Yale had one of her own. It has seemed a pity that one of the very best counties in the state should be without a show, and the Exposi tor has tried a number of times in the past year or two to get one started, but there was a wet blan ket thrown on the proposition every time it was mentioned. This year there is an open week in September, and Messrs. Oliver and Powers, who are in the busi ness of arranging for fairs and carnivals throughout the state, have been in Yale during the past few days and have nearly com pleted plans for the biggest four days of entertainment every pull ed 6ff in these parts. The dates for Yale's Fair and Night Carnival have been set for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Sept. 27, 28, 29 and 30. Some of the very best free at tractions obtainable have been secured, among them being the "Michigan Wild Wife," which was featured at the State Fair; Zeno & Zeno, aerial artists; Barnum Wire Act; Dog and Pony Show; Balloon Ascension, and others which will be listed next week. There will be horse races, auto races and motorcycle races base ball games, dairy cattle show, live stock show, dog and poultry show, tractor and auto show and mer chants exhibit. On Saturday, the last day of the fair, a Chevrolet 4-90 tour ing car will be given away. This feature will be taken in with the popular lady contest Prizes will be given to the three most popu lar ladies, each ticket sold on the auto entitling contestants to 25 votes and the holder of the lucky number at the close of the con test can drive away the car. A fine display of fireworks will be shown; there will be a merry-go-round, Ferris wheel, whip and other rides to amuse the kiddies. Here is our chance to get in the game and try and make this big fair a success. THINKING Half of us don't begin to think before we're thirty-five. We think we think. When we get to forty we're still fools but some of us know it. We have a right to ex pect twenty-three years of life. At forty-five we may expect to live twenty years, at fifty we can look forward to sixteen years and at fifty-five, thirteen years and the bell will ring if it don't ring before. Fancy a fellow having thirteen years to live taking time fault finding. He sleeps half the time. That cuts him down to six and a half years. Chop out holi days, Sundays, time for three a day and he's just got time to start what he hopes to finish. Come to think of it, some of us had better quit picking on the other fellow and get busy.

J. H. Moore, City Clerk GOOD ROADS GROWTH The good roads movement of the present might be compared with the development of the rail roads in this country during the nineteenth century. No less mar velous than the rapid spread of the steel rails to practically every county in every state is the broadening scope of hard sur faced roads in this generation doing for the pleasure and com mercial benefit of the people in remotest settlements what the iron roadway did in the pioneer days. Good roads have come to stay, not only that but new roads are needed in sections yet handicap ped by lack of them, and educa tion must go on until every point may be reached in comfort and at small expense of time and money, and farmers and other producers secure the outlet for their goods which tends to expand trade, change loss to profit, and develop rich sections inconveniently plac ed.

JOHN BRIGHT 1 Ci1: Trer.urer BIG FIRE VISITS AVOCA Fire of an unknown origin de stroyed almost the entire business section of Avoca at 4:45 a. m. Wednesday morning. Five stores and a hotel occupy ing one side of the main street were reduced to smoking ruins with a probable loss of about $20,000. The business places burned are William Thomas, cream station, Sherman Moore, soft drink parlor, Elmer Grant, general store; G.W. Jones, drug store; A. B. McDon ald, barber shop; Dan Englegau. hotel. The Jones drug store was the only one even partly covered by insurance The building occupied by the telephone company next to the burned area as badly scorched by the flames, many wires were burned and communication was cut off with the outside world for some time. Occupants of the three dwelling houses next beyond the telephone company moved all their house hold goods into the street as there was apparently nothing to stop the onward march of the blaze. Federal employes also removed valuable papers, mail matter and other property from the postoffice beyond the dwelling houses. The entire population of Avoca fought the fire with the limited means at their disposal and worked feverishly to assist their neighbors to get their possessions out of danger. No evidence has been discover ed as to the possible cause of the conflagration which had every thing its own way in the closely built row of frame structures. AMERICA By F. A. Perry America is an IDEAL, a GOAL, a STANDARD. America was an ideal when the Pilgrim Fathers landed on these shores. America was an ideal when the Constitution of the United States was drafted and adopted by the Fathers of our country. America was an ideal when Abraham Lincoln saved the na tion from dissolution. America is an ideal today, though often threatened and de famed by its enemies. And every day finds a fuller and better realization of the American ideal. What then is the great Ameri can Ideal ? It is: The promotion of the common good; Obedience to the established laws. Belief in the sovereign will of the majority. Insistance upon a square deal and a fair fight. Active participation of every citizen in politics. Dignity of honest toil and full reward for labor performed. The liberal education of every child. The opportunity to succeed for every one who will try. DISTRICT GAME WARDEN Henry C. Radike of China town ship, for a number of years an ef ficient Deputy Game Warden has received a well deserved promo tion in his recent appointment as District Game and Fish Warden of the district composed of St. Clair, Huron, Tuscola, Sanilac, Lapeer and Macomb counties. The appointment w:n made by John Baird, State Commissioner of Conservation. Mr. Radike will have nine Deputy Game and Fish Wardens under his direction and control.

The firm feel well pleafJ with the volume of trade coming o them. Patronize your home merchant. PRIMARIES HELD TUESDAY BRINGS OUT LIGHT VOTE Tuesday, September 12, 1922, was designated as primary day throughout the state, but the fact didn't seem to sink into the minds of the majority of the voters in this locality that primary was practically the election, for only about a fifty per cent vote was out in this locality. Yale had 395 out of a possible 500; Brockway 101 out of 400; Lynn 53 out of over 300 and Greenwood 100 out of 300. This vote, if the limit had been reached could easily have changed the complexion of the winning bunch. People who stay away from the polls when good men are placed in nomina tion and take absolutely no part in elections should be deprived of their franchises. From ' present returns Groes beck is nominated for, governor on the Republican ticket. In the Senatorial race, Towns end seems to be a winner by a substantial margin. Louis Cramton the sage from Lapeer, sponsered in this section by Ikey Rosenthal and Herb Hen nessy, seems to have run away from his opponent, James Mc Caren, of Port Huron. Louie can certainly be given credit for having a smooth running mach ine, as not one of the bearings was heard to squeak. He carried every county in his district. A hot fight was staged for the office of sheriff, and from the lat est returns Sherriff Harrison W. Maines is a winner by about 800. Herb King gave him a run for his money though, "Joe" Vincent won easily for re-nomination as county clerk. For treasurer Robert Anderson defeated the old Kenockee "chief" Jefferson G. Brown. There were three candidates in the race for register of deeds, and David Monteith, the present incumbent won out. Robert M. Soutar was nominat ed prosecuting attorney, defeat ing Fitzgibbons and Carrigan. Another hotly contested race was for the nomination of drain commissioner and Wm. Wurzel, of Greenwood is the winner over Larry O'Neill, the present holder of this responsible office. The final count in the city looks like this: Governor Fletcher, 138; Groesbeck, 177; Joslin, 41; Cummins, 8. Lieutenant Governor Read, 286. Representative in Congress Cramton, 243; McCaren, 135. United States Senator Townsend, 186; Baker, 78; Em ery, 19; Kelley, 74. State Senator, 11th District Moore, 216; Smith, 121. Representative, State Legis. Lee, 257.

In Sanilac county Miss Ida Mc Leod was nominated for register of deeds, and Robert J. West, pres ent prosecuting attorney, was re nominated over Hugh C. Morris, Marlette atorney, by a big ma jority, In Huron county Mrs. Lulu Mc Auley, of Bad Axe, was defeated for the nomination of sheriff by Peter Burns. Rev. Caleb Rutledgo was easi ly nominated for sheriff in Ma comb county, and Lynn M. John ston is defeated in the race for prosecutor by Mathews (wet can didate) by a large majority. LYCEUM COURSE FOR 1922-23 Higher Class and Higher Cost The Music Study Club will again sponsor a very attractive course consisting of three genu ine Redpath entertainments. The members of this club are intent upon giving the people of Yale and surrounding country the op portunity of enjoying the best talent that can be procured and are proud to announce: Brooks Fletcher, America's dramatic or ator, for their first number Oct ober 6; followed by the Grosjean Marimba Company, a quintet of players and singers and the Zcd- eler Symphonic Quintet. Such talent brought within our reach is a boon to our little city. This course costs much more than the course last year but the ladies realize Yale people want the best and are pleased to make the price of the season ticket the same, feeling sure that every one will avail themselves of this advan tage and privilege. Decide at once how many sear son tickets you need o when the ladies call you will be ready to buy. People living outride may procure their tickets at Eilber & Barth's store. ENTER INSANITY PLEA Sandusky, Sept. 8 James P. Mugant Sanilac county banker, will probably enter a plea of temporary insanity in answer to criminal suits against him, his attorney indicated in an appear ance before circuit court here on Thursday afternoon. The attorney, Fred A. Farr, of Sandusky, asked and secured from the court a postponement until Sept. 15., for the purpose of pre paring and filing a petition for sanity examination. Whether the plea of insanity is intended to re fer to the time the alleged crimi nal acts were committed or mere ly as a basis for asking trial de lay is not known. The charges on which Mugan will be arraigned are three. In the first the Western Electric com pany charges that he uttered a worthies check for $3,800. In a second and third Mrs. Annie O' Connor, of Detroit, claims that he forged two papers, a discharge of mortgage and assignment of mort gage involving a large sum. David I. Fitzgibbons, of Port Huron, is chief counsel for Mu gan. Attorney Farr acted for Fitzgibbons in the appearance Thursday. WORTH TALKING ABOUT Radicals of all sorts, who are today over-running America, seem to think that they have a cause worth while, so they speak print and scatter broadcast their mes sages of revolution. They work and give freely of time and mon ey to promote class consciousness and to stir up industrial strife. Why then, are the rest of us so quiet ? Why not talk America awhile ? Is it not worth talking about ? Our glorious history our righteous laws our educa tional opportunities our un bounded charities our increasing wealth our happy homes. What, with unnumbered blessings and privileges within reach of all, have we not something worth talking about ? F. A. Perry.
