Mrs. J. Gage and family, from near Lansing, are visiting friends in this vicinity. Some of our farmers have their oats out yet on account of , the wet weather. Mr. Wra. Smith, of Lansing' a farmer resident of this township, was a visiter here last week. It would seem from the present ontlook that rye will be sown this fall to a greater extent than usual. It affords pasture as well asa erop of grain. P'armers are busily engaged in fitting their wheat ground for the coming season; the late rains having put most of the ground in a workable condition. Married at the residence of the bride's parents in Pittsfield, August 2oth Miss Lydia Feigel, of this township, to Mr. E. Dieterle of Ann Arbor. Rev. Max. Hein, of Ann Arbor, officiated. Some of the granaries in this vicinity are infested with a species of barn weevil which is very destructive to the wheat stored therein. Grains of wheat which seem good to the casual observer, on examination, prove to be nothing but shells.
