The Dexter News has a bright idea, as follows: "It is suggested that slates be hung in the vestibules of Dexter churches, whereon the young ladies may register when they enter the church. This will save time and no end of anxiety on the part of many young men of the town who now experience difficulty in locating their charmers on Sunday evenings." Chas. Schoen, of Dexter township, lost a valuable two-year-old colt very mysteriously last week. It was running in the field with otherhorses, some distance from the house. On Friday, Mr. Schoen was counting his horses from a distance, and there was one short. He went to the field and found the colt lying dead beside the fence, evidences pointing to its having been so several days. Not a mark of any kind could be found on its body, but the theory is that it was struck by lightning during a storm early in the week. - -Dexter News. The village of Manchester and Warren E.
