Yesceüus, run up bilis at each of the saloons, and on Sunday morning he borrowed Frank Acker's gun and went out into the cold, cold world, leavhig his hotel and other bilis unprovided for and forgot to come back. At this date he is still a wanderer on the face of the earth - Milán Leader. A jolly party gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. j. Fauerbacher, in IxKli, November 10 to wltaess the mnrriage of Mrs. F's sister, Miss Carrle J!. Schaibb, to Mr. Henry B. Allin;uii, oi Ann Arbor. Long before the Iiour in which tli cmatrimonial knot was to have been tied a large number of relatives and fricnds had gathered and when the appointed time arrived the house was well filled. Following the eereniony a bounteous supper awaited them, of which they all partook freely. At about this time a sudden quletua took possession of the party, caused by sweet stralns of music f rom In front of the house, which upon investigatlon proved to be the Ann Arbor Banjo Club in full array. The boys had ehosen tiiis manner of expressing their gratltuile the l'ot of th ir f iend's future Iiappiness. Several pleasant hours were sppnt in a social way, after. which they repaired to their several homes.- Saline Observer. We notice by the local paper of Walkerville, Ont., sent out this week, that one of South Lyon's big "tater" raisers, with probably more hayseed oni his collar than he usually exhibits, crossed over the river into Her Majesty's reahn at Windsor, the other day, with a sample potato under his arm so large that the custom officer halted the S. L'. T. E., thinking he was pertetrating a fraud on Her Majesty by smuggling over a mucical instrument or an artlele of American {urniture, and demanded in.spection. Our agrienlturist consentí-I nn 1 smiled audib'.y wheo his nibs got a glimpae of the contents and disappeared with the remark, "Take your d d potato out of here." The potatb welghed th-ei pounds and a hal; and th? owner was taking It over to show his Canadian friends what a South Lyon "tater" was like. There was no duty exacted.- South Lyon Excelsior. The reporter was at ehurch last Sunday. By that we do not mean to indícate that he never goes to ehurch, for he does, as often as half a dozen times a year, at least. However he has been doing better of late and gare promise of doublé discountlng that record. But a little episode accurred last Sunday whieh may dampen his zoal and inteHere with hls hop"s of glory. While the preacher was elonnPntly portraylng the noble memorj lals a generous spirit could leave be h'nd them when they quitted this enrtkly tabernacle, our reporter, knowiiv that he did not have any memorial with him just then, took a little diversión in the laiid of dreams. But some one of the Jriendly wasps, at present finding a home in that sanetuary, evidently thought he ought to pay for his lodging and so undertook the duty of him who was called the parish beadle in former times. So sauntering along on his self-eonstituted mission, he found the reportorial angel pleasantly nodding assent to everything the pastor siid. Now noddinfii ie not a bad thing of itself, for we are,' told as a pie.ce of classical iuforniation, that even Júpiter nods, but ■we are not told whether he was listenIng or trying to listen to the pastor at that time. So this friendly wasp aforesaid, seeing this movement of the head e-idently took it as a personal insult and a defiance and went for tho individual aforesaid and gave him one, a terrible hot one it was too, in thp sido of the neck. One was enougb. That settled the business, and Fred threw up the sponge and almost his breakfast too. He sought ths open air with alacrity and also.with several other things. Whether he thought that was a premondtlon of sheol, or a peculiar way of empbasizing church doctrine and disiplino, deponent sayeth not. We hope our friend will oxcuse thö uncalled for assault of that wandering Knight-errant, no doubt the trustees and sexton wil] soe to it tliat nedther he nor others shaü again be so molested, for such avenging spirits shail be proraptly read out of the chureli.-
