Á number of the merchants of the city wish to spend an atternoon at the Washtenaw fair next week. Tbey have asked that a canvass be made so tliat the clotiing of the stores be made general. In view of the somewhat unpleasant reception of the chairman of tbe committee last year, there is some hesitancy about the matter. To get a full expression of sentiment a meeting may be called and a committee appointed to canvass the matter. Albert Blaesg, oí. Lodi, was in the city today. He reports that Fred Schmid, who rents his farm and who was recently injnred by a buil, is improving and the prospecw are that be will recover.
