Whil wc are sorry to part with our genia friend Steers, we are glad to be able t ■id a heany greeting to the new management.

We exten to hiin the right hand of fellowship. The Iludson Gazette tells this stor on Lawyer Seth Bean, of Adrián: 8et is a persistent inquisitor when he ha a, wituess on the stand, but sometime the witness gets back at him with tart retort. He had a bright old Iris lady on the stand once, wüere the vai ue of a piece of land, which the wit ness owned, was invoived. She ha testified that she had raised beans on the land. '.'JDo you mean to say," in quired Mr. Beau sharply, '"that yoi can raise beans 011 that saiid patch oí' yoursf" ''Yes, 'n whiter Beaus 'a you!" retorted the old lady, while the court and jury roared. Tred Tag and fainily, of Clinton, were up betimes Sunday moruiug of last week. The stove pipe was not properly jointed; intact iu one place it was not joii'ted at all, and the smoke, when it passed one joint, had to look around the room and guess wliere the next was, before going iurther. But wheu the soot caught lire and began to burn out, it got the family up early, and although it was Sunday the burning chimney was attended to ahead of family prayers. There are no loóse joints in the pipe novv. - Adrián Press. We understand that the ïag lauiily omitted family prayers altogether that morning. The disjointed pipe and the familiarity of that smoke produced such a state of mind as to make sacrilige of family devotions. A very pieasant affair took place at the house of Byron Kandie, of Clinton, Wednesday. It was the celebration of the 9üth birthday of his farther, familliarly known as Uncle Roswell liandle, with a number of the old residente of Clinton and vieinity. Mr. Kandie was boni in Connëcticiit in 1804, and he remembers distinctly the incidents attending the departure of his father to iiglit the Biïtish at Sackett's Harbor in the war of 1812. In 1850 he carne to Michigan and haslived at Bridgevvater and Clinton ever since. Several years ago his wife died and since that time he has lived in Clinton with his son. Four generations of the family are at present living under tbe same roof, Uncle Roswell, his son Byron, a 1 daughter and a great grandson. The old gentlemen is hale and hearty for one of his years and enjoyed the celebration as much as any one present.
