- Mrs. H. Lucas, who has been visiting here for the past few days, the guest of her son, Henry Vanderwerp, went to McBain this morning to visit her daughter for a short time.

- Henry Johnson was arrested this morning by Patrolman Carson on a charge of begging. He was given a hearing before Judge Umlor, who assessed him a fine of $5 and costs of $2 or seven days in jail.

- A. V. Friedrich, John R. Santo and Joseph Sleder left here today for Bay City as delegates from this county to the Democratic state convention. They expect to return to this place Friday night.

- Little Miss Fredericka White of 519 Fifth Street, although only seven years old, has achieved an honor of which she may justly feel proud. Last December the Woman's Home Companion offered prizes for the best verse entitled, "My Christmas Wish". Fredericka composed three verses and sent them and yesterday, a box containing a beautiful doll dressed dainty garments, was left at the door by the postman.
- Interest in fruit growing in this locality is steadily increasing and several hundred acres have been added to the orchard acreage in this vicinity this spring.
