- 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.

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.

- 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.

- Advice on deportment. A gentleman should always precede a lady upstairs and follow her downstairs.
