Sheep she?.ring began in earnest last Monday and will continue all this month. Emery Fletcher and wife, of Jackson, spent Saturday and Sunday with friends here. The rain of the first of this week was much needed and did great good to all growing crops. Some one has dammed the outlet to Cavanaugh lake and raised the water some two feefc. Wheat has headed out and there appear in many pieces considerable amounts of rye and smut. The exercises of memorial day passed off well and the address of R. E. Frazer was excellent. Frank Broderick, of Jackson, spent several days with his mother here the first of this week. Ralph Thatcher and Fred Schumaker, of Ann Arbor, spent last Saturday and Sunday with relatives here. The second Demorest medal contest was held at the town hall last Friday night and was a success. All the speakers did well and the male quartette rendered some excellent music.
