Every letter leaving Adrián, saysthe Hudson Gazette, contains in large lettess the legend: "I carne from Adrián, the most beautiful city in the west. Surrounded by the richest farm lands in the United States. Adrián has the best churches, the best schools, the best colleges, the best fire department and best water works, tne best railroad facilities of any city of her size in the country. Watch her. She is booming." The legend might have read better if it had said "any city of her size excepting Ann Arbor,'' but perhaps Adrián thinks Ann Arbor a larger city. There is perhaps nothing more suggestive of the fact that winter is rapidly approaching than the overflowing bins of the various coal dealers. They are all well prepared for the most exacting demands of those who use coal -and who does not, nowadays? Of the several dealers in the city there is none better prepared for the season of blizzards and other pleasant winter visitors than Mr. D. Hiscock, whose yards are so full that there is scarcely room left for the maneuvering of his teams; and he is in daily expectation of the arrival of an additional supply of some hundreds of tors. Much the same might be said of Mr. E. B. Hall and the other dealers. Notwithstanciing the vast quantities in stock, however, priees this winter will probably rule as high as last year, or possibly higher.
