The goods advertised for sale under execution have been replened and will be cleared in circuit court in April. Ada Rausenberger is building a 34x46 foot underground barn and contractor O. D. Moore says he will be ready for raising in a few days. Wednesday, March 22,' was caucus day for the Democrats and would be-ofrlce-seekers were unusually numerous. By an oversight the township committee was all selected frora the south-east end of the town and instead of holding caucus at Whitniore Lake as heretofore it was held this spring at Emery. Let this not occur again. The whole township of Northfield is congratulating tnemselves on the wisdom displayed at Monroe by the Democratie convention in selecting for Circuit Judge that tried,staunch and brilliant man, Martin J. Cavanaugh. Everybody, including our school children honor Mr. Cavanaugh for his honesty,integrity and capacity,and he will be an ornament in the judical position for which he bas been nominated and beyond doubt will be elected. The Democrats, of Northfield, held their caucus at Emery, March 22, when the following were placed in nomination: Supervisor, Theo. F. Prochnow; clerk, Frank O'Brien; treasurer, John P. Smith; highway commissioner, Ade C Baldin; iustice of the peace, Michael Kennedy; member board of review 2 years, Henry Miller; school inspector, Geo. Burd; constables, David Mair, Fred Zeebe, John Earle and Wm. Bauer. The township committee, Jesse Steffee, of Emery and Frank Taylor and Philip Duffy, of Whit more Lake. This will insure the hold ing of the caucus at Whitmore Lake instead of Emery. This is considered a strong ticket and we will venture that Mr. Prochnow who heads the ticket will be if elected the youngest supervisor on the board being 24 years old, but Northfield has implicit confidence in his sound judgement and have no fears for the interests of our town while in his hands. For Clerk, Fank O'Brein is eminently qualified for the position and will till it satisfactorly for his constituency. For Treasurer, John P. Smith, is the right man in the right place and will fiil the position with honor, and in fact every man on the ticket was selected for each office for his adaptibility for it. The Republicans expect to put up a strong ticket and make a strong fight but the names in this list are sure winners.
