The farmers in this vicinity have their oats and barley all sowed and are plowing for corn. J. A. Campbell is having good luck breaking young colts. He broke two for J. W. Nanry recently. E. Mattison, jr., entertpined a few óf his friends last Friday night at his home one-half mile southwest of Dixboro. The cold nights we have been having lately are bad for the spring crops that are planted. There was a good turnout at the Ladies' Aid Society, held at Mrs. Ransom Townsend's last Friday. Dr. Lemen, of Ypsilanti, formerly of this village, was here Sunday attending to the sick. Adelbert Curtis, of Salem, son of Edward Curtis of Ann Arbor, is very sick and not expected to live. Henry Hanby is very sick. He is quite oíd and the doctor thinks there is not much hope of his getting well.
