A sadness came over the home of Holger C. SCHMIDT and family last Friday, when the Angel of death came and claimed their beloved and youngest child, Genevieve Ellen, age almost five years.
She was a pretty brown-eyed little girl and her sweet and loving disposition not only endeared her to every member of the household, but to all who knew her. she had not been in very good health for two or three weeks past, but had been up and taken her place with the family every day. The mother altho worried about her thot that now that Spring was here, she would be able to be out-of-doors more and would soon become stronger. But the child became very restless during Thursday night and passed away at seven o'clock Friday morning without a struggle in the mother's arms.

-SENATOR ALGER IS DEAD.
At 8 o'clock last Thursday morning the wire transmitted the above sentence to all parts of our country and around the world.
Our state and nation mourns the passing of a man, who had made himself great in peace and war, in private and in public life, and was respected and honored in his home city, and in our state, where he was best known, as have been but few of those who have gone before.
His death, though long anticipated from the heart trouble, from which he has suffered for several years, was sudden, for the preceeding day, and that morning, he had seemed unusually well. He had attended as usual on the session of the Senate Wednesday, and among his last official acts was the obtaining of pensions by private bills for veterans, who had no better friend.
No braver soldier, no purer man, no man with broader practical charity, no man whose daily private or public life would bear more close inspection could be found, and the historian of the future who writes the history of his life will have but one grand eulogy.
In the many battles he had won undying fame, but his grandes achievement was in the forlorn hope at Boonville, where by his intrepid daring, he saved Sheridan and his troops, though himself severely wounded. It was then he nobly won his star. As Secretary of War, and as Senator, as Governor of our State, as Commander in Chief of the G. A. R., as a business man and a citizen, he has never been found wanting.
The funeral at the Washington residence was attended by the President and Cabinet officers, by many foreign diplomats, Senators and Congressmen and was conducted in a manner devoid of ostentation. A grand eulogy and prayer by Dr. Wallace Radcliffe and prayer by Rev. Edward Everett hale, and the body was taken to a special train, escorted by four troops of Cavalry, the bands marching in silence.
The train reached Detroit about 10 o'clock Sunday morning, accompained by the family and the committees from the Senate and House of Representatives, and the body was escorted to the City Hall where it lay in state until 5 o'clock, when it was removed to their Fort street residence, where the funeral services were conducted Monday at 2 o'clock and the final obsequies observed at the family vault in Elmwood Cemetery.

- 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)

-H. A. BAUMAN DIES IN DETROIT
WAS HIGHLY ESTEEMED GRAYLING CITIZEN
Funeral Here Friday Afternoon From Residence
Henry 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)
