Thomas Jensen, of Jackson, was here on business Monday. Chelsea has had no property destroyed by fire the past year. J. L. Gilbert is now taking the assessment for this township. Rev. J. L. Hudson, of Detroit, made a flying cali here on Wednesday. The high school entertainment will be given at the town hall on Friday night. Ed Williams returned from Reese, preferring not to accept the situation offered him there. The cold, wet weather retards vegetation generally, hut wheat and grass are coming along rapidly. Friday, the 28th inst., has been named for Arbor Day and should be observed by the planting of trees generally. Some twenty of the Masonic fraternity from here expect to attend the funeral of Frank Wight in Detroit next Sunday. Quite a number of the Chelsea hive of the L. O. T. M. attended a pleasant meeting with their Dexter friends on Wednesday. Charles W. Gregg turnecl the Chelsea House over to Mrs. Gillam and son on Tuesday and returned with his family to Jackson, from whence he carne, on Tuesday night. Several lots of unwashed wool have been bought here at from 15 to 18 cents per pound. That would indicate that washed wool is likely to bring about 20c per pound this season. The market has been dull and declining the past week. Wheat now brings 65c for red or white, oats, 3SC; rye 52C; beans, $1.75; potatoes, 70c; clover seed, $6.50; dressed pork, $8; eggs, 15c; butter, 23c. Wheat moves quite freely now and will for the next two months regardless of the price. There is no hope of anything much better than present prices and many farmers are compelled to sell some now to get it out of the way and others need the money.
