Still the ruthless despoiler of Arm Arbor flower gardens is unshot, and briskly plies his vocation, singing: 'Tve íesamlnes, mlips and hairbeHa o blue, Wild roses and egleaUDesgUstening wlth duw. The Ann Arbor Courier exclaims with devout fervor: "The legislature has adjourned. Hurrah for the legislature'" Let the organ also peal and the choir strike up the hymn: " Bellevlng, we rejolce To see the curse removed " The Saline zoology class is engaged in rnounting frog skeletons, and young Misses who would faint at the sight of unwashed dishes, hold the legs of the amphib with perfect composure while the favorite co-ed zoo skins him. The forthcoming humorous university paper, we are informed by the Argus, will exclude "grinds" and "personal cuts." There'll be no tying tin kettles to the tails of dogs whose owners are known! Here is where the humor comes in. "The bachelors are preparing to go to the World's fair in the near future and have invited the 'old maids' to accompany them," says the Ludington Democrat, to which the lady editor of the Ann Arbor Democraladds: "Ann Arbor Bachelors are made of different stuff." A brutal Webster, Washtenaw county man, said to possess unerring weather instincts, prophesies five more full-grown cyclones before the end of '93. Ordinarily we .would not encourage bloodshed ; but it wouldn't be wicked for some philanthropist to rise up and skin that prophet's nose. A Lansing dispatch announces the appointment of Milo D. Campbell, of Coldwater, and Albert L. Stevens, of Detroit, as members of the Railroad Crossing board. The common crossing board is usually composed of two pieces, nailed together like this: "X," and lettered "Look out for the cars!" The senior medical class of the University recently visited Pontiac asylum in a body. Visitors and visited gazed upon each other with mutual pity. And who in the light of progress, "looking backward," a hundred years henee, shall say whether at Pontiac or the University existed the wildest dementia? A young woman well dressed, a stranger and evidently a professional fainter, feil on the grass in front of a comfortable Ann Arbor residence, last week. Doctors were summoned, she was cared for, and next day provided with transportation to Jackson. Later reports of this fairy show that she faints on the slightest provocation.
