The pastor of the Ypsilanti Con;regational church, will soon write lis sermons in the study of a 3,000 )arsonage. "The Woman's political club" las been started at Ypsilanti. Now he gods forefend! They had the jroomstick already. , Milt Davenport now lords it over Moorvellains, as "P. M., which is iostmaster." Neat, new boxes have )een placed in the office. August 22, will be poet's day at the World's Fair. The day is under stood to be set apart in honor of E. ?. Johnstone, of Ann Arbor. # What the poor dogs of Chelsea, are going to live on, through the vinter, is a pathetic question. The sheep are pretty nearly all used up. "The new gas-holder at the gas works, is about coinpleted" says the Argus. Now if they could get somehing that would hold the gas colector. It is time that a halt were called on loading children down with great names. George Washington, of Ypsilanti, colored, died last week n a lonely house, unwept, unatended and without any known relative. Chelsea creditors look in vain for he familiar faces of quite a number of their debtors. The debtors have ïot left town; but, disguised in 'smugmugged" faces, they are there yet, seeking new credits, under new names. "Yesterday, having by a singular stroke of fortune sufficient of cash to )ay the postage, thepublisher of the Sentinel mailed statements of subscription accounts" etc. Thus the Yysilanti Sentinel. Rurglary in the city the same week. It's turning out just about as we iredicted- the women are growing very obstreperous, since becoming voters. Mrs. August Schneider, of Ann Arbor, has had her husband sent to the house of correction for 90 days, and has also begun a suit or divorce; and all in the world the man did to provoke these outrages, was to soak her awhile in scalding water. Newkirk, do you see what you've done? 1 At Rridgewater last week Mrs r Jacob Luckhardt looked hard at the 1 empty pork barrel which she sup1 posed was full, in the cellar. Some hog had hoisted the cellar gate and "swiped" every ounce of swine meat. Hark luck for Mrs. Luckhardt! The latent incandescence, hanging around the university, even during vacation, recently ignited the coal in the bunkers, containing 3,000 tons, and only the prompt application of water and salt prevented the hottest time the university has had since the recent homceopathic unpleasantness. A fakir at Milan defied the license and damned the local government; whereupon the marshal yanked him off his wagon and jerked him before a justice, who fined him $6 including costs, these together with the license which he then paid, amounting to $n. "The Lord loveth the cheerful giver." Justice Bennett, of Ann Arbor, performed his first marriage ceremoiv the other day, and blushed as b i asan indigo bag, as he put the pu:r under bonds to keep the peace and fulfill the commandment given to our first parents. After they were gone, he wondered a little while whether he did just right in not kissing the bride, but he soon forgot about it, in the affectionate contemplation of the two round dollors, received as fees. The Ann Arbor Argus says: "A crowd of Azalia hoodlums rotten egged a young woman from Dundee and drove her out of the hamlet." Now, we can clearly see trouble ahead, growing out of this affair. Azalia has been referred to as "a hamlet" by the Argus, and in the war that will come of it, the young woman with her fragrant wr.ongs will have time to change her perfume before she is thought of. - - Hon. H. Wirt Newkirk, of Washtenaw, is by the ears, with the Saline Übserver, over the Woman Suffrage law, and explains in the Dexter News, why the educational qualification was tacked to the bill. He affirms that it would not have passed without it. His statement however, that the women told him they "would submit to almost anything, to make a start towards woman suffrage," has the appearance of a breach of confidence. A dirty, pusilanimous little tenyear-old George Washington, with his hatchet, has hacked a number of shade trees in Ann Arbor so badly that some of them will probably die. The boy was seen at his work, but escaped. To this journal it has always seemed a pity that the tree-hacking narrative of the father of his country was not suppressed. His pernicious example has cost the lives of untold thousands of beautiful trees.
