Mrs. Charlotte Taylor received $710 from England Thursday as heir at law of a deceased brother. Rev. Mr. Fleming, of Detroit, preached to the union meeting last Sunday night at the M. E. church. Some pieces of corn and late potatoes are now growing and will improve much more than was expected before the late rains. The work on the school house is being pushed on and is expected to be ready to begin school about the first Monday in October. Harvesting beans had begun, but has been stopped by the late rains.
