-CARVES WITH JACK KNIFE
"Carves with a Jack Knife" is the caption of an article appearing in the Detroit Free Press Sunday, telling about the genius of Mrs. Nettie HARRIS as a wood carver. The article reads as follows:
Minitures of Deer Show Woman's Unique Genius
Ever since she was a little girl, Mrs. Nettie HARRIS, of Grayling, has carved things. in the old days, when she lived on a farm, the fence posts and rails showed evidence of her work. Today, nothing makes her happier than to be busy with a pocket knife on a block of soft wood, shaping it and making it live.
Last summer, she saw a wild deer in the woods near Grayling. Carefully she observed its manner; the alert ears, the long slender legs, the white tail, the questioning eyes. Then she went home and carved a deer out of white pine, wood which once grew in thick forests about Grayling.
Mrs. HARRIS works without models. First she outlines the work on the woodblock with a pencil, then carves patiently with the picket-knife. Every little detail is fashioned from memory. The finished work is not smoothed, but the final artistic knife-cuts are left, to show that the work is done entirely by hand.
The collection of deer now includes does and fawns and bucks in various poses. Some of them stand all alert, as if disturbed by a hunter, others are grazing or licking saltblocks, while still others are pictured on the run, as if escaping from danger.
She has tried carving other wild animals also, but she says she likes carving deer best. She likes their graceful poses, their beautiful proportions, their wild appearance. She carves because she likes to do so, and as the little figures come to life, each knife-stroke betrays genius-untrained but genuine. (21 Dec 1933)

Had Long Been A Well-Known Resident of Crawford County.
Monday came the news of the passing away of an old and well known resident of Crawford county, Peter AEBLI. Death occured at the State hospital in Traverse City Monday forenoon at 11:00 o'clock. Mr. AEBLI with failing health, his mind and memory weakened and at his request entered the State hospital for treatment in August a year ago. Before that time he had suffered attacks of paralysis while making his home with his daughter, mrs. Henry BORCHERS.
Peter AEBLI was born in Galrious, Switzerland, November 7, 1849, and died at Traverse City, October 25, 1920 having almost reached his 71st birthday. Mr. AEBLI remained in his home country, Switzerland, during his boyhood, and when he came to America settled in Cincinnati. Afterwards he went to Jackson, Mich., where he made his home for about a year, and then came to Crawford county in 1881. He was united in marriage to Miss Amelia HOESLI and to them eight children were born. Mrs. AEBLI passed away about 22 years ago.
On coming to this country he took up a farm in Sigsbee township and farmed until the year 1895, when with his family he moved into the county seat, Grayling. Here he took up his old trade as printer, being employed on the Avalanche by Dr. O. PALMER, who was then the publisher. He followed this work until the spring of 1913, when his health began to fail him and he then made his home with a daughter. For a number of years he served on the board of Superintendents of the Poor. He was a thoroughly respected citizen and a friend of all who knew him.
The remains of the old gentleman were brought to Grayling Tuesday and taken to the home of his son-in-law, John J. NIEDERER, and the funeral services were held this afternoon at the Michelson Memorial church at 2 o'clock Rev. C. E. DOTY officiating. Interment was at Elmwood cemetery.

-OBITUARY.
Michael S. HARTWICK, whose death was noticed last week, was born in Oakland County, Michigan, January, 22d 1841, and died at Jackson, April 5, 1909, having almost reached the alloted three score and ten years.
His boyhood was spent in Ingham County, near Mason, Mich., where he was married to Miss Jennie A. O'BEAR, and to them was born two sons, J. W. HARTWICK and E. E. HARTWICK, now of Jackson, Mich., and one daughter, Nellie, now Mrs. W. J. PRATT, of Addison, Mich., all of whom survive him.
His wife died in this village in 1886, but he retained his home here until 1900, when he removed to Jackson, to be near his children, then at Mason and Jackson. In 1871, Mr. HARTWICK came on an exploring trip north from Bay City, following the proposed line of the Jackson, Lansing and Saginaw R. R., now the M. C. line, which was ironed as far as Standish. After a careful consideration of the future promise of this section, he selected the present sight of Grayling for his future home, and came there with a load of lumber in advance of the civil engineers for the R. R., to make a place of shelter for them, and here, just across the present track, between the power-house and barn of the Salling, Hanson Co., with the aid of two companions, he built the first house here, from logs, the first of which lay as it fell from the stump, and which house was the first hotel, for here he cared for R. R. crews and passengers who came after the iron reached here. He had been before after his wife and two infant boys who came in a covered wagon. It was also the first store and Post Office, of which he cared for both. Since then he has built three hotels here, which have since been destroyed by fire, and built the first school house, a small one about where the R. R. roundhouse now stands.
He was chairman of the first board of supervisors of this county, and we believe had been supervisor previous to that time, while, this county was attached to Kalkaska. He has filled all of the more important offices of the township, and was ever considered among our most progressive and influental citizens, always holding close personal acquaintance with nearly every family in the county, to many of whom his generous heart and open hand had responded quickly in their times of need.
When the history of Crawford county shall be fully written, the name of Michael S. HARTWICK will be prominent in its opening chapters.
The final service was held at the M. E. Church, conducted by the Pastor Rev. V. J. HUFTON, assisted by Rev. J. Humphrey FLEMING, of the Presbyterian church, who preached the funeral sermon. A wreath of flowers covered the casket, and many of our citizens looked for the last time on the face of their friend, ere he was borne to his final resting place, by the side of his wife in Elmwood Cemetery. "He Rests in Peace." (15 Apr 1909)

- ROUTIER-BAUMAN Wedding Last Evening.
Wedding Bells chimed again at the Danish-Lutheran Church, Wednesday evening, when Helen Louise, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry A. BAUMAN, became the bride of Mr. Ralph Emerson ROUTIER of Detroit. The very atmosphere of informality, which prevailed in all the appointments, being altogether delightful and making the marriage a most memoriable one.
The pretty little ediface was beautifully adorned with Southern smylax. In front of the altar were four tall baskets which burst into bloom with large white chrysanthemums and pink roses. These formed an aisle and made a pretty settling for the wedding party.
While the guests were being seated, beautiful melodies were played on the harp by Miss Arna Hartwell JONES of Bay City.
At eight o'clock Mrs. Oscar W. HANSON took her place at the piano and began playing Mendellsohn's wedding march. At the same time, Rev. William H. SKENTELBURY of Portland, Mich., followed by the groom and the best man. Mr. Clifford J. HINKLEY of detroit took their places at the altar. Then from the back of the church came the ushers, Mr. Fritz HENKEL and Mr. Glen ROUTIER, brother of the groom of Detroit, Mr. T. W. HANSON and Mr. Holger HANSON. Then followed the ribbon stretchers, Virginia HANSON, Mary Esther SCHUMANN, Ella HANSON and Margrethe HANSON, looking like four rosebuds as they took their places at each of the four baskets. Following these came Junior HANSON looking like a little prince in his black velvet suit and carrying a basket of roses in which snuggled the wedding ring. Next came the bridesmaids, Miss Grace BAUMAN, Miss Lucille HANSON and Miss Hilda JAKCSON of Flint, making a most attractive group in their blue mull frocks, smart brown lace and velvet toques and carrying shepherd's crooks tied in pink tulle and ribbon. Miss Margrethe BAUMAN attended her sister as maid of honor and as she followed she looked charming in shell pink crepe and satin with large picture hat of toupe satin and carrying a large bouquet of pink roses. Then came the bride leaning on the arm of her father. She was most lovely in her gown of white net over satin, of Lucille fashion with train and trimmed with princess lace. She wore a lace coronation, which held her tulle veil in place. She was met at the altar by the groom where the Rev. SKENTELBURY performed a most impressive ceremony, and these two young people entered into holy wed lock. During the ceremony, Miss JONES played very softly upon the harp.
At the reception which followed at Danebod hall, there was again a note of simplicity in the decorations - a bower of Southern smylax estending out about three feet from the side of the wall was the principal decoration, together with large baskets of pink and white chrysanthemums. In the receiving line were Mr. and Mrs. BAUMAN parents of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. James HARWICK parents of the groom and the wedding party. During the reception delicious punch was served.

-H. A. BAUMAN DIES IN DETROIT
WAS HIGHLY ESTEEMED GRAYLING CITIZEN
Funeral Here Friday Afternoon From Residence
Menry A. BAUMAN, one of Grayling's best known and most highly esteemed citizens, passed away at the home of his daughter Mrs. Helen ROUTIER, 818 Edison avenue, Detroit, at 10:30 o'clock Monday forenoon. He had been in poor health for the past year. With him during his last days were his wife and daughters Mrs. ROUTIER and Mrs. Walter H. WOODSON and her husband of Salisbury, N. C., and Esbern HANSON, Grayling.
Mr. BAUMAN was 72 years of age. He was born in Germany and, with his parents, while still a small child, came to America and located in Muskegon, Mich., where Henry grew to young manhood. He was united in Marriage on June 17, 1892 to Miss Mathilda HANSON, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rasmus HANSON. To them three daughters were born, all of whom survive - Margrethe, who makes her home in Grayling with her parents; Mrs. Helen ROUTIER, Detroit, and Mrs. Grace WOODSON, Salisbury, N. C.
After marriage Mr. BAUMAN took up his residence in Grayling and soon associated himself with Salling Hanson Co., manufacturers of lumber. He spent much of his time supervising the lumber camps of the Company, of which, in the early days there were many, and the woods operations. Besides these duties he found time to take an active part in community affairs. He served in community affairs. He served as president of the village; township supervisor and other township offices, and for 25 years was treasurer of Grayling school district. These and many other civic responsibilities he assumed and carried out with honor, much to his personnal credit and the utmost confidence of the people of the community. Mr. BAUMAN's integrity and faithfulness to his responsibilities were never questioned. He was a 32nd degree Mason, a Knight Templar and a member of the Lutheran Church of Muskegon. At the time of his death he was a vice president of the Eastern Michigan Tourist association. He was a devoted reader and was well informed on affairs of the day.
He had a happy faculty of making and keeping friends. Wherever he might be, in his home town or away from home; on a train or hotel lobby or wherever he met folk, his interesting personality immediately won for him attention and warm friendships. Without doubt he was better and more favorably known outside of his home city than any other citizen we have. Wherever one might travel, someone was almost sure to ask about Henry BAUMAN. He liked people and people liked him. In his passing Grayling has lost a most desirable influential citizen.
Funeral services will be held from the family home on Peninsular avenue at 2:00 o'clock Friday afternoon. Interment will be at Elmwood cemetery. The business places will be closed from 2 to 3 p.m. during the time of the funeral. (30 Mar 1933)

Dec. 22, 1918.

Dear brother and family:
Just a few lines to let you know that I have a pretty d--n good chance to get home alive now. But I seen the time when I would not give two cents for my skin, but they never even got a hole in my old pelt. I was darn lucky; if you ever read the papers you will know.
I will tell you where I was on the front. The last one I was on was the Verdun front. Was on the Argonne sector from october 1st until the 28th of the month. You might call it war but I call it h--l.
Say, by the way I ran across James W. OLSON from Grayling; he was in our company for a while, but was taken sick and went to the hospital and I never heard of him again. Don't know what became of him. I guess he is home by now.
Say, I guess I am stuck this time we all thought because we came over first that we would be first to go home to the land of plenty, but they put us as part of the Occupation army in Germany. So here we are feeling fine in a burg by the name of Andernach on the Rhine River, and doing guard duty and sleeping on feather beds in a hotel. And we are treated fine by the German people.
I guess I wil lbe home in about three months. How does that sound, good or bad news to you? I tell you it sounds good to me. Write soon.
Well, so long. Wish you all good luck. Please excuse the writing and paper, I did not have all night to write.
Your brother
Carl E. WARD,

- Great Lakes, Sept. 12, 1918.
Dear Harold:
I received your letter and was glad to hear from you.
Suppose you have your books in hand most of the time, and doing your best at school.
We have been transferred out of detention to a training camp, called Perry. Have it all together different here. We have twelve hours liberty every Saturday and Sunday. Our hours are from twelve o'clock noon till midnight, so that gives us quite a playtime.
We came here on August 20th, that night we slept in the armory, that held eight hundred men. The next morning we ate breakfast in a mess hall, that held over one thousand men. After chow we marched to a barber shop, where we got a regulation hair cut. Then there were ten men drawn for the mess hall and I was one of the lucky jackies (here we are all called jackies) to feed the rest of the company. We then raked the good eats, but that lasts only for a week then ten others go on duty. We were given hammocks to sleep in and moved into the barracks by ourselves.
The first night, my shipmate and I nearly broke our sides laughing at the fellows to hear them roll out of their hammocks and drop on the deck eight feet below. We would just get to sleep, when some big Jack would hit the deck again and then everybody would roar. The hammocks are pulled up as tight as you can pull them so you can see it is very easy to roll out.
Our Co. Commander showed us how to roll our blankets and mattresses up inside the hammocks and tie them with the lash ropes so we can use them for life savers. They are water-proof and if well wrapped will hold a man up for seventy hours in the water.
We are taking lessons in tying knots. A good knot is an important thing on board a boat.
Thurday morning we got up at 3:30 and washed our hammocks. Saturday morning we have inspection. All our clothes have to be rolled and tied neatly. Then we lay our sea bags 15 inches apart on the deck, and our clothes on the bags. The officers come in and we stand "attention" behind our clothes and give the right hand salute and hold our hats in hand. No matter how clean your clothes are if one piece is out of line, they will put you on detail work. Our company has never been put on detail work yet. So you see I'm improving.
Saturday my shipmate and I went to Waukegan. We are forty miles up the lake from Chicago and have special trains called "Jackie Specials." Waukegan is a very patriotic place in fact all the people here are. The Y.M.C.A. serves meals free and they took us around in autos and showed us a good time. We had some good home made cake and good coffee with cream and sugar. I told the lady it was just the kind my sister makes. Hoping you write again. I will close.
Charles OWEN. (26 Sep 1918)

PASSED AWAY
HAD BEEN RESIDENT OF CRAWFORD COUNTY 45 YEARS.

Saturday, during the night, George F. OWENS, pioneer resident and estimable citizen of Crawford county, passed away at his home, after a lingering illness, due indirectly to the infirmities of old age, he having almost reached his 75 mark. For several months he has been too feeble to leave his home. He was given every comfort during his illness and last week when his condition became serious his children who reside away were called here and were with their father when he passed away.
The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at Danebod hall, and was conducted by Grayling F. & A. M., of which the deceased was a member. Rev. J. Herman BAUGHN of the Michelson Memorial church delivered an impressive sermon, and the remains were laid to rst in Elmwood cemetery.
George Frank OWEN was born in Atlas, Genesee county, Michigan, April 3rd 1848, and came to Crawford county 45 years ago, locating in Lovells, where he purchased considerable land and engaged in farming. He took an active interest in civic affairs of the county and especially of Lovells township, and served as sheriff of Crawford county for two terms, between the years 1900 and 1904.
He was married at the age of 28 years to Ella DONAHUE to whom were born eight children, five of whom survive. Several years ago Mr. OWEN retired from his labors and came to Grayling to reside. He was a very fine old gentleman and always bore a sterling character, and was held in deep affection by the members of his family.
Besides his wife, three sons and two daughters survive, Ray, Glenn and Charles of Detroit, Mrs. L. WERNER of Bay City and Mrs. Holger SCHMIDT of this city.
