Owing tp accidents to both of the otors traffic on the Ypsi-Ann was Sspended for Tuesday and WednesjaV Some one has bescribed tight hoes as "the things which niake vourfeet feel so good when you Jlon't have them on." So we find hv experience that the Motor road .' great inconvenience when it ' ij run, - Ypsilanti Commercial. Densmore Craraer, the Ann Arbor attorney, of whom more mean things have been said than commonly fall tothe lot of man, has, like the troden worm, turned at last. He has be-uin suit against Wm. Burke for $-ooo damages for slander. He was defendant's attorney and alleges that the latter called him a thief and a robber on account of his bill for legal services. - Ypsilanti Sentinel. A centleman asked us a few days acó what we thought a good lesson for the man who comes to town in the morning or even in the evening, ties his horse on the street in the cold or storm, and leaves it there until the "wee sma' hours" while ihe enjoys himself eating and drinking by a warm fire. Our remedy would be this, and we would like to seeittried: The next time that disgrace to manhood came to town, tie him to the post for ten or fifteen hours and put his team in, where it can spend its time eating. If this does not cure him, doublé the dose, and repeat it as often as you catch him at his old trick until he is reformed.- Dexter News. An Indiana farmer gives this method of humanely dehorning calves: " As soon as the buds of the horns appear on the calf, or can be found, I take an ordinary stick of white potash, such as is sold by any druggist for a slight sum of money, and after moistening the horn bud with a drop of water or saliva, rub the exposed horn with the end of the stick of potash. I use the stick of potash because it is but the size of a lead pencil and it is very convenient to take hold of, and after being used it can be slipped into a bottle, where it must be kept closely corked until one wishes to use it again. It takes but a slight application to kill the young horn, and the calf does not mind it atall." If this method works all right, those who wish their cattle dehorned should adopt it. It will be far esier and certainly more humane. - Michigan Farmer. An alcohol signal vvhich promises to work a revolution in the railroad signáis of the world, is located on the Michigan Central railroad, one mile east of Ypsilanti. It excels all signáis and safety devices ever offered to the railroads of this or any other country. It is symmetrical in outline, and pleasing in appearance, being in this respect alsoagreat improvement over the signáis now in use. It stands six feet from the track and is eleven feet high, bringing the gradúate on a line with the engineer's headinside the cab. The signal is soconnected with the track thatit is absolutely impossible for an engine or train to pass over the track connection without filling the gradúate with the liquid. The gradúate is twenty-six inches long and six inches wide, and as the liquid, pure alcohol, with which it is filled is colored red, it can be seen forra long distance in each direction. The signal is manufactured by the Ypsilanti Signal Company.
