Attorney Sawyer, of Aim Arbor, isn't often to be caught, which makes the few occasions of "gettin' his corneupens" a reason for more riierriment thau niight otherwise occur. Aud Deputy-Sheriff Peterson is also too shrewd often to be caught. But botli have looked in vain for redress in a case of recent occurreuce. Just before leaving for a vacation on Cavanaugh Lake, düring the recent G. A. 11. encampment, Mr. Sawyer placed in the deputy's hands for service au execution ruiming against souie rural swain, to satisfy a judguient. The efficiënt offlcer levied upon a field of wheat just harvested, but neglected to remove it, supposing it would be safe until he should return from Detroit, whither he went to enjoy the big blowout. He came back, but his wheat was gone- so completelygone, that lie cannot identify the straw, even. It is needless to say more. A braided straw hat, a hickory shirt, a wampus and alpair of over-alls may cover a man who knows a thing or two, even if he does wear cow-hide boots or- none at all.- Ypsilanti Sentinel. To the above a further statement may be added. When Deputy-sheriff Peterson returned to the wheat and rye, he found the parties engaged in threshing it and carting it off. He bommanded them to desist but they persisted in carting it away. The next move in the case was a complaint flled before Justice Pond, against Ileniy, Frank and Ezra Forshee, Elias and George Boberts, of Salem, the parties interested and the threshers, on the charge that they did "knowingly and wilfully resist, obstruct, and oppose said Meivin C. Peterson, who was then and there an offcer, to-wit, a deputy-sheriff, in and for the county of Washtenaw, in serving and attempting to serve a process issued by lawful authority, that is to say an execution issued by the circuit court for the county of "Washtenaw, aforesaid, bearing date the 28th day of July, A. D. 1891, in a cause in said circuit eourt pending, wherein one David Forshee was plaintiff and one Henry Forshee was defendant, which execution was directed 'to the sheriff of Washtenaw county, greeting.' " The five men were arrested Tuesday by Deputies Peterson and Buck and broug-ht to this city, spending the night in jail. They were brought before Justice Pond Wednesday morning, their case adjourued to Sept. 2-5, and they were released on their own bond for $500. This is a very unusual case and the outcome of it will be watched with interest.
