The Reformation was the work of the pres- ent week. The word analysis class have com- pleted their work and will begin the study of composition next week. The B literature class is now read- ing Emerson's essay on "The Uses of Great Men." Ella Hasbgor.ek, of What might have proven a disas- trous conflagration was happily averted last Sunday morning by the timely arrival of the clerks in John- son, Hill Co.'s .store. Mr. Bankert, the tailor, roused them from their .slumbers with the -startling informa- tion that the grocery store of that firm, which is the kirgest wooden structure in the citv, was filled with smoke. An JCclcUtional Locals. of '90, visited the school one day this week. Mr. Luchr has organized a class in mathematical geography. Ernest and Herman Wippcrman spent a few days at the state capital this week. The class in physics had an exami- nation upon the subject of light on Wednesda3'. A large number of brown stains on the floor of the high school room Tues- day morning gave proof that the to- bacco chewer had been present at the schcol meeting Monday evening and had put in some very effectual work. The rules and regulations adopted by the school board forbid pupils bring-y ing- tobacco on the grounds. But sucli rule will look rather ridiculous when the parents of these pupils come to the annual school meeting- and expecto- rate tobacco juice all over the floor. It seems too bad that there are people who have so little sense of the fitness of things. We believe that some have so thoroughly become a slave to the habit that they would spit tobacco juice all over the alabaster pavements of heaven, should they ever get there. CEN RALI The usual literary exercises were held in the High school Friday after- noon. The L. L. A. held a heated discus- sion last Friday evening on the ques- tion, Resolved, That the soldier had done more for this country than the statesman. The class in pedagogy have finished that study and will take up the study of English history. The general history class have com- pleted the study of medieval history. Joint Number of The ENTERPRISE is in receipt of the Joint Debate number of The -tEgis for 1895. It gives in full the last joint debate upon the question of a consoli- dated central banking institution vs. the present national banking system, with an introduction by Professor David Kinley, of the University of Illinois. These joint debate numbers "of rank among "the most valuable contributions to the litera- ture upon the subject under discus- sions. These debates are the result of a year's thorough investigation and examination of the most reliable authorities upon the question at issue. They contain the gist of all that is best and most authentic. The present number contains in addition to the valuable material contained in the arguments of the different de- baters a very valuable bibliography of the works bearing on the question. The number oetore us is ot greater than usual interest locally from the fact that Mr. Theodore W. Brazeau was one of the debaters. A copy of the joint debate number can be secured by sending 25 cents to The sEtfis, Madison, Wis. City Nomineea. The following nominations for the various city offices have been made by nomination papers, and in most in- stances the papers have been filed with the city clerk: For Johnson. For W. Natwick and F. P. Daly. For J. Cooper. For H. Carey, W. E. Gardner, C. L. Duncan, Jas. Dolan and John Kollenda. For ward, J. W. Cochran; second ward, L. M. Nash; third ward, John Schnabel. For ward, no nomi- nation has yet been made; second ward, F. H. Jackson N. H. Robinson and A. H. Walworth; third ward, S. Preston and Clark Lyon. investigation revealed the fact that a hole had been burned through the double lloor, at a point just in front of the stove, where a wooden spittoon filled with sawdust was usually placed, and that the coals and burning-embers therefrom had fallen down cellar onto the cement lloor, within two feet of a barrel of alcohol. The fire was speed- ily extinguished with but slight dam- age. It is the supposition, and a natural one, too, that someone threw a lighted cigar stub into the wooden spittoon just previous to closing up Satur- day evening-, and that the same had smouldered until discovered by the clerks. Had the fire been left to itself a few moments long-er, the probabili- ties are thai the whole building- would have been a mass of flames, and no one would have been able to say where or how it started. "Ward. Caucuses. Public spirited citizens should not fail to attend the caucuses to be held this evening, that proper nominations for cit3' officers may be made. In this city, nominations have nearly all been made by securing the necessary signatures to nomination papers, and the probabilities are that no city convention will be held. In Grand Rapids, however, is still an open question as to whom the nomi- nees will be, and therefore diligence is essentially important. Ward cau- cuses will be held as follows, for the purpose of nominating candidates for supervisor and aldermen in each ward and electing three delegates to attend the city convention to be held on Mon- day, March 25th: First the residence of Ed- ward Mahoney. Second the city hall. Third the vacant store 11 din_g_owned byB. Silber, next door to the post office. Fourth the residence of John Plenke. The hours of assembling is o'clock in each instance. In Cupid's Yoke. A quiet wedding took place at the residence of N. H. Potter in the town of Grand Rapids, on Wednesday, March 20th, at o'clock p. m., when Miss Nettie Potter and Mr. Thomas Chr3'stal were united in the bonds of matrimcmyT The groom is an ener- getic and prosperous young man well known in this vicinit3r, while the bride is one of our most estimable young ladies. Only immediate relatives were present, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Reynolds of the M. E. church. A .sumptuous wedding supper was served after the ceremony when the guests departed, wishing the bride and groom all the joy ami happiness possible in their new life. They were the recipients of a number of useful and beautiful presents. Their future home will be in the town of Saratoga. Lenten Services. 1M. E. Church. Rev. J. R. Reynolds, pastor.

Doud departed "Wednesday morning for her home at Winona, Minnesota, after a two weeks' pleas- ant visit with the family of Mr. Alex Muir. She was joined a couple of last week by her husband. and Mrs. W. H. G-ay and little daughter took their departure for Milan, Mich., last Monday evening, where they will hereafter reside- Mr. Gay disposed of his omnibus line to the proprietors of the Central House before his departure. Gu3' Lynch, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Lynch, had the misfor- tune, last week, of falling from the hay loft and spraining his arm and being generally quite badly shaken up. The accident confined the fellow to the house for several days. disastrous runaway occurred on our streets The team of a German farmer residing in one of our neighboring towns, became frightened and run pell-mell up French street.

Let the agitation of an independent system go steadil3' on, as that is the only safeguard to the peo- ple's rights. An interesting lawsuit was tried before Justice Getts during the past week. Chas. L. Duncan began suit agains Louis Lemai for damages sus- tained in a runaway accident last fall- Duncan was riding in a light buggy when he was suddenly run into by Lemai's team at full speed. Mr. Dun- can's shoulder blade was broken and he sustained other personal injuries, while the buggj1 in which he was rid- ing was nearly demolished. Action was brought for both personal damages and injury to property, it being claimed by the plaintiff that Lemai was guilty of carelessness in not prop- erly hitching- his horses before they commenced to run. The decision of the Justice was in favor of the plain- tiff who secured judgment for 341.00. McCamley came down from one of, Daly Sampson's camps on the Port Edwards road the first of the, week. He reports that Daly son put in feet of logs for the John Edwards Manufacturing Co. this winter, and that all of the latter's timber has been put in slick and clean, so that this season's sawing will wind up the lumbering business as far as that company is concerned. In this work one hundred sixty men were employed, divided into three camps. The larger part of the logs were put in by Breiinan'scamp, the other two be- ing chiefs interested in going over olcl slashings and gathering in scattering timber. The Edwards Co. has already begun operations toward opening up their lands for .settlement by farmers, and surveyors are at work laying out roads vritli end In iWSPAPfc.RI
