The Milan Leader states that O. W. Sangree found a large hens egg which on being broken, another perfect egg was found inside. Good reliable correspondents are wanted by the Argus in every part of Washtenaw county not now represented. If yon have a good item of news send it in, but please be prompt as thereby its value is increased. Charles O. Hoyt, A. B. , assistant in psychology and pedagogy, of the State Normal college, will deliver the address before the graduating class of Mooreville high school June 13, 1899. Everybody invited. - Milan Leader. Miss Josephine Hoag, sister of E. G. Hoag, of Chelsea, was married Thursday evening at 8 o'clock at the home of her parents, No. 876 Wapash ave., Detroit, to Louis Ebert. Miss Nina Crowell, of Chelsea, was one of the bridesmaids. Capt. L. L. Negus, of Chelsea, is a hustler. In two weeks time he built a 16x30 foot, two story frame house of five rooms with a cellar six foot underneath, for Hon. A. J. Sawyer, on the latters farm in York. He completed the work ready for the plasterers. Through the efforts of J. E. Durand, of Jackson, $1,800 has been subscribed by the farmers of Lyndon to erect and put in operation a cheese factory in that town. The factory will be located at Boyce's Corners and will cost complete $1,600, thus leaving $200 to work on. The building committee to look after the erection of the factory is composed of Orson Beeman, John Clark and A. J. Boyce. - Chelsea Herald.

John Pilbeam, of Milan township, was a caller at the Reporter office a few days ago, and exhibited a small bag of gold coins which he plowed up on his farm last fall. The coins were sovereigns and half-sovereigns, each denomination of same date, the former being 1831, and latter 1817 The mystery is how they came to be upon the farm. He purchased the land many years ago, when a wilderness clear ed it; has plowed the and several times, the first time about 10 years ago and while plowing last fall discovered one or two pieces, and upon digging in the location found many - the number he does not tell - some of which were several feet from where he first were found, supposed to have been moved about by the plowing the various years. The value of the sovereigns is $4.86 each and of the halfs $2.43. - Dundee Reporter. These coins are the probable result of a murder or robbery of an English traveler in the early time?.
