S. H. Dodge, uf Ypsilanti, related a queer happening to a Times reporter the other day. He said: "Yesterday a lady carne into ruy store arid offered to sell a very fine solid guld watoh. The watoh was set %vith diamonds and gamets and probably oost a cuuple of hudred dolĂ­ais. On the case was a finely engraved monogram and on the cap was a full name corresponding to the monogram. The lady, who is well known to be au honest wornan, said tbat some five years ago her sons were playing near the railroad track at the Peninsular paper mili and one of thera fonnd the watch. She advertised for the owner of the time piece bot although nnmerous persons who had lost watches applied toher, none conld teil the name on the wacch or the monogram. It is probable that sorue pickpoeket robbed a man on a train and thinking he was snspected of the crime threw it out of the car window so that it wonld not be found on his person."
