The grove is a good place to hold picnics and a gcod class of people gathered at this one and a happy lot they were too. Attorney Griffin, of Toledo, presiding over the speaking exercises, and excellent speeches replete wltb witty or homerous stories were made by M. J. Cavanaugb, W. W. Weedemeyer, Rev. Fr. Kennedy and Rw. L. P. Goidrick. Rev. Mr. Goldnck dwelt especially upon good fellowship. The colored men's jubilee qnartet sang a nnmber of songs wbich pleased the neople. There was dancing aud gettar a looting and caore than all there was che dinner, the big hearty wholesome dinner, where 50 cents worth of food was sold tor 25 cents. The main part of picnic is the visiting, and they were a congenial set of people visitiug ytsterday. Evetybody had a good time aid fiat is what picnics are for. Miss Francis Oaspary sang so sweetly that she was vocifaronsiy recalled. The receipts of the picnic were $300. The only ttnng that was at all disappomtiDg about the picnic was the rather small number of Anu Arbor people present, the Northfield chnrch having given up its Whitmore Lake picnic for the benefit of the new St. Thomas church. However those Ann Arborites who were present had snch roval good time that tb ey will attend next year.
