- Last Thursday evening while out for a pleasure trip. Dr. G.W. Fralick's auto lost one of its wheels and broke the shaft just as he was coming down quite a steep hill in front of George A.

- An ice cream social was held at the Gunton schoolhouse Friday evening, proceeds going toward the recently installed organ. A great number were present and did full justice to the refreshments. Several selections were skillfully rendered by Miss Daisy Huellmantel, who also played several good old-fashioned songs.
- Four unidentified men were burned to a crisp last night when the Paquain ice house at Petoskey burned. It is believed the men were tramps and that the fire started from a bonfire by which they cooked their supper on the beach. The loss will reach $10,000.
- The program given at the YWCA home last Tuesday evening proved a very interesting one and was listened to by a large gathering of the members. Of particular interest was the paper on "Birds of the Grand Traverse Region" by Miss Clara Bates who has made birds a study. The YWCA home is now ready to receive girls who want to live there.

- J. Bruce Ismay told the British court of inquiry yesterday that it had been planned to drive the Titanic at full speed during a few favorable hours of its maiden voyage. Further, he believed Capt. Smith fully justified in going at full speed through the ice region so long as weather conditions made it possible to see ice ahead.
- Advice on deportment. A gentleman should always precede a lady upstairs and follow her downstairs.
- Medical advice of a century ago. Malt liquors are very good for the aged. A moderate amount of alcohol acts as a tonic and supplies needed energy for digestion.
