FATHER OF CHARLES
B. WARREN DIES HERE
(Continued from Page One)
birth the family moved to Fenton-
ville and then to Flint, in 1851. He
was graduated from the Flint high
school in 1860, and in the fall of that
year he entered the literary depart-
ment of the University of Michigan.
He entered a camp of instruction soon
after the firing of Fort Sumter, and in
1862 he acted in the Company K, 23rd
Michigan Infantry. While at Bow-
ling Green, Ky., a commission reached
him for second lieutenant of Company
C, 27th Michigan Infantry. He at once
returned to this state to join his regi-
ment and then encamped at Ypsilanti.
Soon after the regiment left for Ken-
tucky, he was detailed to act as aid-
de-camp of a commander of a bri-
gade. He continued to serve in this
capacity until the close of the Vicks-
burg campaign, when illness compelled
him to retire. In the following Octo-
ber his resignation was accepted on
account of physical disabilities.
After regaining his health Robert
Warren entered the Law School of
the University of Michigan and grad-
uated in '66. He was a member of the
Zeta Psi. Folowing his graduation
he immediately entered the practice of
law in Flint. But a year later he en-
tered newspaper work, and since that
time he has continued active ik the
field of journalism. He purchased the
*Bay City Journal in 16, and two
years later made it a daily paper, the
first to be published in that city.
Since then he has been editor and
publisher of papers in Saginaw, Law-
rence, Decatur, Albion, Charlotte and
Ann Arbor. The Ann Arbor Times
was the last publication in which he
He was married December 21, 1865,
to Miss Carrie W. Beecher, of Flint.
Three children were born to them, one
of whom, William Bates, died at the
age of 13 in 1884.
SUFFERING SUFFS SET UP SWELL'
SPREAD. HUBBY FOOTS THE BILL
When Charles E. Hughes was in
Chicago this week, among the many
people who waited to see him were two
women members of the Progressive
party. They had a certain number of
questions upon which they wished Mr.
Hughes to declare himself more de
finitely than he had previously done.
All morning these two women waited
in hotel"lobbies, buttonholeing poli-
ticians until their conference with Mr.
Hughes about noon time.
Having successfully accomplished
their undertaking, the women decided
that they would stop being modern
women for a while and be parasite wo-
men. So they went to an expensive
restaurant and ordered on expensive
luncheon, far more expensive than
either could have afforded by herself
and they charged the luncheon to the
husband of one of the women. When
she presented the bill to her husband
that night, his only comment was that
he didn't object to an occasional par-
asitic spree, but thank goodness, she
wasnt that way all the time.

INDUSTRY AND TRADE ACTIVE
WITH BUT MEDIUM CROP YIELD
Industry and trade are active as
evidenced by the increase in building,
the great volume of sales in stocks,
greater activity in bonds, a heavy in-
crease in railroad earnings, and the
improvement of the foreign trade situ-
ation. The moderate crop yields with
the prospective European demands
have already caused a higher price
for cereals and cotton.
The reports from various sections
indicate the prospect of moderate
yields in crops. The Northwest has
been badly burt by rust and high
temperature. Estimates vary as to
the damage done, some indicating the
smallest crop in sixteen years. The
Canadian damage is estimated to he
considerably lighter. The winter
wheat harvest compares favorably
with last year's. Corn has been in-
jured in Missouri and Kansas by the
hot weather but in Nebraska and Okla-
homa prospects are much better.
Iowa promises the best results in the
middle west. Tobacco crops are gen-
erally good the country over. The
cotton crop begins to look better al-
though west of the Mississippi the
lack of rain has reduced the early
