The Ann Arbor correspondeuce of the Ypsilauti Sentlnel, last week, contained the following: Tho other evening In conversatjon with James Clark, the reteran nlghtwatelnmui, I uvas veiy mueh astonished to lc.-u-n iliat on the seventeenth day of last mouth, Mr. Clark had patrolled the streetB Jusi 1T yeare tliat rarj day, amd in all these yeara had MLver bèe nolï duty one single night. Thla record is unpreecdented. Our cltlzena Bhould present this faithful offieer wlth a haJidsome present for meritofious service guarding life, limb aaid property. How inany accidenta he has avoided, how inany couflagatious he has not averted, how many Imríílaries he has prevented. What a book he could write if he were to tell tales out of 6Chool and expose what he has seen and heard under the mantle of darkness, of the society of this Athefiian city. j a While in the University city we have our gladiators and our games and field days, we are also producing young Ciceros. Only the other day a young stusent of the U. of M. by the name of Gormley scored the highest point in oratory, capturing the plume from eontestants from other universities. Aa other young man has broken a record in the field of science-the science of law - George O. Grane, of Fenton, Mich. In the most thorough and rigid examination of candidates for admission to the bar in the history of the Supreme Court of Michigan at Lansing. This young man, a junior law in the U. of M., on the llth inst broke all former records by making tlie unparalleled score of 99! A battle of fcrains! I congratúlate my young friend on nis victory and heartily ïive him three cheers. But there was no crowd of thousands of spectators present to cheer and applaud. Now, young reader, in which would you rather eicelin the arts and sciences, or in the field of games and sports? Stop and think.
