Ann Arbor, after the recent editorial convention, presented the appearance of Egypt, after a locust scourge. ft is not the stringhalt that has touclied up the gait of the Chelsea Standaí'd's editor. He steps high, because of a son, new born ami a "regular screamer." # Congresman Gorman has recovered from his recent se.vere illness and returned to Washington. Mr. Gorman scored well tq begin with, but grip got the best of him. A Washtenaw coloree! woman las week procured a marriage license for herself and "intended." The latter was basting the grip by the stove, and unable to skirmish fo the license. The price of gas in the city o Vpsilanti has been cut down from #2.00 to $1.60. The gas compani really had to do something to com pete with the editors and members of the common council. A Dundee man lias just got to the workhouse for failure to support his wife. The Reporter prints an account of it, as a warning to another fellow down there, whose family are dependent on the sweet charity of the neighbors. ■:: # # # L. Rhode, of Ann Arbor, had a road horse killed by the lightning of a fallen wire and sued the Postal Telegraph company therefor. He recovered $70 and the blood of the horse ceases to cry from the ground for revenge. The Washtenaw Times boasts that Ypsilanti dress stays and underwear have carried the name of Ypsilanti to the farthest part of the continent. People also have fled to the farthest part of the continent to get on the leeward side of her mineral water, beside which there is nothing rotten in Denmark. ■X it # i While the Vpsilanti Congregational Sunday school was in session recently, and the brilliantly illuminated íiereafter of the unrighteous was under discussion, fire broke out from an overheated flue and consumed one or two hundred dollars worth of property. We have searched deeply for.the moral of this incident, and have also given it up. # # The Michigan Law Journal, a new University publication, is about to appear. The list of contributors eenbraces about every known law celebrity - from the justices of the state - and the United States Supreme Courts - and the Supreme Court of Japan down to the every day pleading lawyer. With such a deck load of brains the Journal should be well ballasted in the hold. W. W. Bliss, of Ann Arbor, had often read and heard of such things, but la! - of course, it wouldn't happen with him. So when the fire in his furnace was low, he replenished it with kerosene, since which evënt he presents the odd spectacle of appearance without eyelashes, mustache or hair. There are men, we trow, who will read this item and laugh at poor Bliss, and yet by the same trick will be as bald as a hazelnut before next Saturday night.
