Jackson county has been shipping ber poor to this city, for tJse purpose of avoiding the expense of their care, but as they are sent on, the expense to onr citizens is minute compared with that just being incurred in the trial of a case now in progresa in the oircuit court, which justly belongs to Jackson county. It is the case of Whalen vs. The Michigan Central for damages in cured in the city of Jackson in the wreek of the Michigan Central train during the World's fair. It is a long winded case and it has been estimated by competent judges will cost this counj ty $2,000. The only thing which permits the case to bebroughtin this county, is the fact that the Central runs through the county. The case properly belongs to Jackson county where it should have been brought. Prejudice was originally nothing more than a judgment formed beforehand, the character of such jadgments beiug best iudicated by the present meaning of the word. The división of time into months and weeks is so old that its origin cannot possibly be ascertained.
