Mrs. A. R. Camp feil Saturday, breaMng her hip in two placéis. Many from here took in the races at Ypsilanti. Mi', and Mrs. Napier, of Buffalo, N. Y. , who have been visiting Mrs. Napier's brother, John H. Cowan, have retnrned to their home. Fimiell Bros. were the first to weigh on the new village scale weighing six steers whose average weigh t was 1140 pounds. Mrs. Clara Mowerson pleasantly entertained the Ladies' Aid Society on Thursday. A special meeting of the school board will be called to consider new text books. Mrs. Ed. Coleman will wait on her many friends at Johnson's restaurant. There will be a social at Eugene Bartlett's tonight. The farmers living on the direct line of rural delivery object strennously to f ree delivery, as it means discontiuuing of the postoöice here. By such a ohange they will be denied the advantage of postoffice ordters, etc. unless they chance to meet the mail carrier, who 110 doubt will be endowed with all the powers of a fourth-class postoftice. Our genial postmaster, Robert Shankland, has filled that capacity ever since it was organized here and by his pleasant andaccommodating marmer has won the repect of everybody. Mr. Sankland's promptness in attendiiig to all matters of mail places his work above reproach.
