What a predicament the republican party is in. Their speakers told the people last fall that the tariff did not increase the price of any article on which it is put. The old tariff of 3 and 3 cents on sugars above No. 16 reduced to one-half cent. F. P. Glazier, of Chelsea, has bought 50 barrels of granulated sugar for April that he will retail 22 pounds for $1. The reduction of the tariff on sugar takes effect April 1, 1891. "Who pays the tariff on sugar, the importer or the customer?' ' They also told us that if the tariff was taken off of wheat Canada would run their wheat in Michigan and we would notget over 50 cents a bushel. What grudge does the republican county convention owe the farmers that they wanted to annex Canada? J. H. Wade entertainedhis son-inlaw, Ed. Raftey, of Minneapolis, last week. Rev. A. B. Storms, of Detroit, visited his parents here, this week. The grange at C. M. Bowen's last Friday was well attended. They will hold the next meeting at E. H. Keyes', Friday, March 6. About forty attended the P. of I. meeting, last Thursday evening. It was decided to have a P. of I. box social at T. Fletcher's, Wednesday evening, Feb. 25th. Everybody invited. The lyceum last Saturday evening was very entertaining. The question, "Resolved, that it would benefit both Canada and the United States to annex Canada," was decided in the affirmative. The criticism in poetry by Miss Alletta Storms was very good. George and Anna Steinbach rendered some fine instrumental music.
