— UNCLE SAM will hold an examination for Railway Mail Clerks in Traverse City throughout the United States on May 15. Many ambitious young men with only a very ordinary school education, can readily pass this exam. The government wants young men over 18 and with common sense, to take the examination for railway mail clerks and carriers. Railways mail clerks make $800 a year to start and increases to $1200. Contact the Evening Record for more information.
— RAILWAY TRAFFIC was delayed for two hours in Mancelona yesterday afternoon when an overloaded car of cord wood jumped the track in front of the depot, scattering the wood in all directions. Luckily, no one was injured. A broken bolster caused by the extra load, kept the trucks from curbing as the car was switched into a siding, thus throwing it from the track. Section men, aided by the train crews, succeeded in replacing the car after part of it was unloaded.

— THE MAJORITY of dogs in the Village of Mancelona seem to have an antipathy to the railroad trains and showed their enmity in every which way they can think of. This afternoon, Archie Luock’s canine got into an argument with a passenger train and tried to fight back, with the result that the dog took a trip some 60 feet through the air. Beyond being badly astonished, it escaped uninjured.
