Would feed grain to eattle at niglit Let young horses have a field in which to run iu winter. AU kinds of stoelt, ineluding theep, need plenty of water. II. W.

But later reporU continu the fact that it was uot a campdgn rage, but a realit.y. Au nutJine of his business eareer, and of the cau?C3 wliich led to the faihire is taken f rom the Detroit Bree Press of the 4th inst. The Eer. W M. Ferry, Senator Ferry's father, wastheürst settler of Grand Haven. He moved there in 1834, wlieu the Senatorwas alad f 7 years of age, founded the town, aeeumuiated wealth, raised his large iamily of ehUdren aad is buried hcre. Ferry & Sons and Ferry Brothers have always been among the leading business men of the town,andupto sixyearsago there was hardly a raiiroad, ehurc'i, "bank or niiirine entcrprlso of any Importases In that city In wliich thcy werc not intrn-sred una tlie leading spirits. 'Ferry & Son ran the tirst private bank in Grand Haven, aria Edvvard F. Ferry was tor yearS the President of the First National Bank. About eight years ayo Kilward P. invested heavily in Utah mines, which, in couneeticn with the ehrinkage in valué oí' real estáte, and then unprofitable lumberingandother business, eaused him to beeome heavily involved, and overwork and anxiety also eaused ill hf-alth, whieh kept him idle lor a period of about two years. Sinee then, althongh retaiuing an interest in the tirm of Ferry Bros., he has given nearly all hi.3 nersonol atteütion to his mining 1ntereet in Utah. The Senator, of whoni Grand Haven as a i! f has always been proud, hap, In addition to his duties as a United State3 Senator, supervised the business of Ferry Bros. in Grand Haven, Montatue and Chicago, and has alsobeeu President of the Michigan Barge Company and interest ed iu othcr business. He bas "had the reputatlon of being an ablc business man. During the past two years both brothers have invested heavilv in tlicir mining enterprises at Park City, Utah.
