   Grand Traverse Herald (Newspaper) - February 6, 1902, Traverse City, Michigan                                TRAVERSE HEKALD. JANUARY 23, 1 9O2 State corn shredder got in -work in Ypsilanti Friday, Insley having his hand and arm rjPHjfhtfnlly mangled. Greek H. D. McDonald, of Boston, a traveling man slipped and fell on the ioo and was assisted to a haoft at once by a patrolman and a newspaper reporter. He said his leg was fractured, but he refused to have a doctor. At the hotel it was evident that the break was a bad one and the policeman was about to insist upon a surgeon when the man calmly broke the leg entirely off and laid the ru- mains on a chair. It was made of wood. Little 13 year old Bella Kauffman is one of the most remarkable child pi- anists that Detroit has over known. Although she has been studying but four years, her rendition of selections from such composers as Mozart, Gocl- dard and Mendelssohn would do cred- it to the graduates of mnny conserva- tories. Two years ago she gave -her first public recital in Schwankovsky music hall and played a long and difficult program entirely from mem- ory, at that time being unable to reach the pedals. Last year she played frho Mendelssohn G minor concerto with full orchestra accompaniment, at a concert given by Albert Hodman. This young girl is an earnest worker with her books ns well as her music ami is predicted for her. It is a fact not generally understood that salt will destroy a cement walk in less time than anything else Jcnown. The salt cats into the ooment and destroys the original surface, leaving it and uneven. Resi- dents sprinkle salt on it in the winter to thaw the ice. lu the spring they find the surface eaten away and blame the men who put down the walk. Fine sand will answer the purpose as well and leave the walk unimpaired. Merchants who have been in the hab- it of keeping eight or ten barrels of salt in front of their stores on the ce- ment walk, upon investigating the walk have discovered that the salt has tendency to sot'ton the tle Greek Day Journal A now bank will be established at Kalkaska, which will be known a the Kalkaska County State Savings Bank. The necessary capital has al- ready been pledged, a location se- cured, and some time during the com- ing month the new concern will bo ready for business. The stock was "readily subscribed for by citi- zens of the county and twice that sum could have been secured had it been needed. State Senator A, E. Palmer is one of the principal stockholders. A little four year old was visiting with her parents at a home where they owned a cow. When it. came milking time, knowing that she was not used to seeing farm work, they asked her to go and see the cattle. She was delighted with the shoep and pigs, but when she saw the man milk she rushed into the house and almost breathless with excitement exclaimed, "Mamma, ho gets the milk out of the cow's Jour- nal. Annual reports received by the state insurance oommisioner indicate that the Farmers'Mutual companies suffer- ed unduly, along with the stock com- panies last year. A majority of the losses sustained by the farmers' niu- tuiug were due to lightning, which played unusual havoc in Michgan last summer. IUQ new fangled parlor match was an important factor also, some companies showing that fully 15 per cent of the losses were duo to this cause. The playful habit the heads of these matches have of jumping into inflammable material tended to a marked degree to an increase in dis- bursements. The largest young man in Michigan is probablv Elmer Kellar of Sturgis. He weighs 400 pounds, is as nimble as a.oat and very strong, and can'run, hop, ship, and jump, box hats, and hold his own generally with any ordi- nary athlete. He is temperate in 1mb- and has a host of friends. The Oarrom-Aroharena company of the largest game board manufacturers in the world, has sus- pended work to increase the capacity of the plant. The main factory build- ing will be enlarged by an addition, 40 by CO feet, and two stories high. A now steam power plant in a separate building will also be installed. This concern, which started about five years ago with a capacity of thirty boards a day and employing loss than a dosen men, now has a capacity of boards per day and gives em- ployment to 250 persons. The com pany occupies buildings that cover an entire block. Within the season just closed nearly two hundred thousand parlor game boards of various kinds -were manufactured and shipped to ev- ery state in the Union and many for- eign countries. The seventh day adventisfes N have adopted a .missionary scheme. Every adrentist who is a farmer will the coming year set aside a "mission- ary" acre; that is, one acre for every member of his family, and more acres if so disposed, but every one at least one acre, the produce or grain raised upon it to bo sold for foreign mis- sions. It is claimed that every ad- ventist in this country will do this. Last year many adopted this plan, and declare that the produce raised upon these acres amounted to twice that raised upon the other acres in the same lot. They look upon this as something miraculous, hence the gen- eral agreement to adopt th'o plan for raising missionary funds. The venerable Judge Josiah Turner, who was on the bench a half century ago, and is one of the most beloved citizens in Michigan, is constrained to call attention to the fact that Mich- igan has never elected a native of the state either governor or United States senator. "Michigan was admitted in- to the union in 66 years ago, ho says, "and children born in the state would years ago have reached the ago required by law for filling those posi- tions, but none of them have toon so honored. In every instance natives of some other state have been chosen to act in the Capacity of governor or represent the state in the United States While the physics class in the South Lyons high school was "-experimenting alcohol and boiling wator the al- cohol exploded, severely burn- ing one of the students. The first use of aluminum wire for railroad purposes in Michigan is to be made today on a section of the Hawks- Angus interurbau between Jack on and Michigan Center when the cars com- mence running on his lino between Ann Arbor and Jackson. A stretch of four miles has been equipped with al- uminum feed wires. Aluminum wires are used" out of the Allegan electric light plant, but this will the first adaptation to railroad purposes in Michigan. A five months old baby, Teddy Roosevelt Oallender, has the distinc- tion of putting a court of justice out of business in Bay Oifcy. The wee bit of humanity is a grauclsoj of Jusfcce Gallender, and while its mother went to do a. little shopping, she left the little one in its grandfather's arms. Justice Oallender looked proudly as he held the baby, and divided his at- tention between it and the expostula- tions of the contesting attorneys. Ev- erything ran along smoothly until one of the lawyers, growing animated as he warmed up in his debate, beat a loud.tatoo.with his fist upon the desk as if to drive home and clinch the ar- gument he Avas advancing. This was too much for the baby. It bleched forth a plaintive appeal for mamma, ,and declined to be comforted by Grandpa Oallender, BO it finally bo- came necessary to adjourn court until the mother returned and huahcd the little one to quiet. A Reed City man named Henry J. Graf has just perfected an invention which bids fair, when placed before the .public, to rival wireless tele- graphy. It is a small and very simple machine for the manufacturing from water gas suitable for heating and il- luminating purposes. It is claimed by the inventor that one thousaud feot of gas can be made for leu cents. Rev. G. R Collins, pnstor of the Lansing African M. E. church, says that the colored population in that city .is gradually decreasing. He. has completed a census and find the total 300, whereas a few yens ago when ho came there, the colored folks number- ed 600. of the constitutionality of tho law. A monster petition of over 200 names for the establishment of a lodge of Elks nfc Manila 1ms been received by Grand Secretary Geo. A. Reynolds of the B. P. O. E., who lives at Sngi- uaw. It is one of tho largest petitions ever received, and the list is com- posed of prominent ineu, principally officials of tho army, navy and cus- toms .department of Uncle Sam. Not until after a decision of the United States suprouiu court that the Philip- pine Islands are a territory of this country was it possi bio under tho laws of the order of the Elks to grant a dis- pensation for a lodge at Manila, for the Elks'law specifically states that- only whito runic citizens of the Unit- ed States of America can become members of tho fraternity. Tho grand secretary has also received an applica- tion for a lodge at Hilo, Hawaiin tor- ritory.
