Capac has more attractions for Duane. Tlio Columbus Canard. The wide-spread interest which has crop ped out recently relative to the late Christo pher Columbus deserves more than a passing notice. There is a pievailing opinion among well informed people that this noted navigator discovered Xorth America in 1402, and some even think it was he who landed on Ply mouth Rock. All these people claim him as the discoverer or this glorious country. Thev havt recently been celebrating the four hundredth centennial of that event, and of late some excellent people want to claim first mortgage on him on account of his religion. It does not transpire, however. that the immortal Christopher had any more religion of any kind than he needed for his own use, a1id that, he was not a character worthy of special imitation save as a navi gator. Misinformed school children, when asked who discovered America, will repeat the rhyme, "In fourteen hundred and ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Now the fact is, that there is no proof that Columbus ever set foot on North American soil. In the year 1492 he dis covered the Island of Sn Salvador, and by so doing discovered a small portion of the western he nisphere. He landed on this Island Oct. 2 1st, 1402. after which he sailed around and discovered some of the other West India Islands, Including Cuba. On March 15th, 1403. he returned to Spain and In September of the same year ho sailed again and this tune he discovered theCarlb bee Islands and Jamaca, but there was trouble at home and so ho returned in 1400 where he had a deal of trouble In proving to old King Ferdinand that lie had done a good thing. In 140S he made another ex pedition, sailing farther south and landed at Trinidad, from whence ho discovered the Orinoco river and South America. He was compelled to return however by Jealousies at home and was rewarded by being loaded with chains ami cast into prison. He how ever cleared himself up with the old mutton head of a monarch, and linally sailed again on May 9th, 1502, but the voyage was dis' astrous and he returned in 1504, only to die of heart failure in Valladolid and in poverty juay 20ih, 1500. This disposes of the Columbus canard, for he never set foot upon North American soil, and neither did his illustrious country man Americus Vespuclus. He voyaged In 1400, and after stopping at Trinidad, he sailed along the coast of South America ami discovered some small islands In the Gulf of Mexico. He succeeded however In getting his name attached to both continents, whereas In fact ho never saw but one of them. The Cabots discovered Newfoundland in 1407 on England's account and after them came other discoverers, but 500 years before Columbus was lorn, North America was discovered by Norsemen, and peopled by those sturdy ocean bandits all along down the New England coast as far south as Martha's Vineyard. There Is standing to day an old stone tower at Newport, Rhode Island, supposed to have been built by them, but that is all or nearly all that they left to posterity and the natives. Everything else lias been swept away and forgotten In the canturies which elapsed before the puritans landed at Plymouth Rock in 1620. Previous to this, however, an English colony had been established in Virginia In 1607. Now this sums up the whole history of the discovery of America according to best authorities and will bo a surprise I know to a great many people but I have been worrying about this matter long enough and pro-lose to set the rising generation right about facta In the case and get It otlfrom my mind. Of course everybody can obtain this Information for themselves, but everybody don't try to. They take Tom, Dick or Harry's statement that on October 21st, 1402 Columbus discovered North America when in fact he did nothing of the kind on that date or any other and then they proceed to celebrate the anniversary of an occurrence that never transpired. Now I hope that school children will cut this out and paste it In their geographies for constant reference, and further, that grown people who have had Christopher Columbus standing on Plymouth Rock, In their minds, will take him down, dust him off and throw him away, for he never was there.

London Daily Free Press: "The Mehan Lady Quartet, of Detroit, on this occasion made their first bow before a London audience, and although a great deal was looked for, expectation was mote than met, for one could scarcely wish to hear anything more exquisite than the blending of their voices, ei'ch of their concerted numbers being given with a purity ot tone and a delicacy of shading which captivated their hearers and brought them round after round of au-plause." At the Congregational church, Wednesday evening, Dec. 7th. The Mehan Quartet will sing at the Congregational church, Dec. 7. The Detroit Tribune says, "They are one of the finest quartets in this part of the country."

S. D. Emory, representing Harrison Swan & Co., of Hoston, Mass., has done quite a large business in Owosso for the past few weeks without making much noise about it. It will be remembered that last year Mr. Emory purchased poultry for a few weeks in Owosso, creating quite a flurry among the local dealers by the price he paid. This year he returned to Owosso determined to give the farmers the best poultry market they ever had and to show them that there was big money In this branch of farming If they would give It proper care and a rttle more attention. This Mr. Emory thinks they intend to do as he will give them a good market here every year. Up to date he has purchased 30,000 pounds of chickens and turkeys, paying for the same about 84,000. Employment has been given to an average of twenty women, to whom 8500 has been paid for picking. Most of the poultry is shipped by express, the charges on which have reached 8400. The feathers are all carefully saved. The quills are sent to Warren Featherbone Co., of Three Oaks, and the feathers to New York selling at from 15 to 35 cents per pound. Mr. Emory estimates that he will have about two tons of feathers at the end of the season. The farmers for twenty miles around Owosso are here dally with large loads of poultry, realizing six cents a pound live weight for chickens and ten to twelve for turkeys. Owosso Is the best poultry market In Cen tral Michigan.
