John Heinzmann, of Whitmore Lake, yesterday finished delivering his roots to the Ann Arbor Chicory Co. On a fraction of a quarter of an acre he raised a little over three tons.


The Ann Arbor Chicory company will on Monday receive roots in Chelsea. C. A. Pryor will be at the Michigan Central depot to weigh the roots and issue orders. Hon. James S. Gorman's crop will fill a car.

The Ann Arbor Courier stretches forth benedictory hands, rolls up its eyes like a duck in a shower, and blesses the reunion of Judson and Moran. It says the lion and the lamb have lain down together, neither beside the other. "Our democratic friends," says the Courier, "will find little comfort in the settlement. " Oh, yes they will. Bill and Selby are now in the condition of a couple of snakes after a fight. The reptiles seized each other by the tail and began swallowing. Each finally swallowed the other and both disappeared.—Adrian Press.


A Deering rotary engine of about 25 horse-power has been received at the mechanical laboratory of the University of Michigan for experimental purposes. The machine will be subjected to a series of tests extending over about two months time, during which it will be run with different pressures of steam and different loads. The exact amount of steam required to operate it under the different conditions will bc found by measurement. The object of the tests is to determine the exact horse-power of the engine, the conditions under which it can be most successfully run and whether it can be made a commercial success.


Says the Adrian Press : Before the Congregational Business Men's class of Ann Arbor, Sunday of last week, personally appeared Prof. Brewster in an effort to prove that "fidelity to christian principles is consistent with the successful practice of the law." His plea for the lawyer was almost pathetic, and it must be conceded that considering the desperate character of his client, it was as eloquent a piece of pettifogging as we have noticed in print in a long time. It. shows what a sublime advocate the professor would be, with the facts as well as the argument on his side.—Adrian Press.

From Monday's Daily Argus.


A fireman's ball will be given in Saline Friday evening, Nov. 3. Such is fame. The cut of Dr. Angell, president of the University of Michigan, is doing service with a number of country papers as the cut of Oom Paul. The doctor is enjoying a good laugh at the joke.


William Wanzeck, the well-known barber, is back again at his old place with Julius Trojanowski in the U. of M. barber shop. Mr. Wanzeck will be glad to see his old friends. His smile is as bright as ever.


Mr. Cleveland, of Mt. Clemens, aged 76 years, who had a cataract removed by Dr. R. S. Copeland at the Homeopathic hospital, returned home this morning very happy. He was able to read a magazine without difficulty.


Friday evening, Nov. 3, the Daughters of Rebekah, in Martha Washington costume, will serve supper in I. O. O. F. hall. Supper from 6 to 8 o'clock, dancing from 8 to 10 o'clock. A cordial invitation is extended to all.


A gentleman said to the Argus : "Do you know that cross country walks are now becoming quite the thing? My wife and I took a long walk yesterday afternoon, and three miles from the city we met a number of young people. This was the style years ago, but tight shoes and tight lacing changed it. I attribute the change in fashion to the more sensible footwear."


At the convention of Michigan health officers held in Grand Rapids last week, Dr. Collins H. Johnson, of that city, brother-in-law of Hon. Nathan Sutton, of Northfield, read an able paper on "Typhoid Fever." In this connection it will be well to stat that not one case originating in Ann Arbor has been reported during the past year. This speaks pretty well for Ann Arbor water.


We would state on authority of the school board that "Railroad Jack's" remarks at the Emerson school were made without approval, consent, or even knowledge of the board, superintendent or principal. It is not the policy of our school management to allow such people that form of publicity, and is an example of "Jack's" nerve in evading authority and imposing his presence upon teachers to whom he was a stranger. - Owosso American. Railroad Jack has worked Washtenaw county in the past.
