The expenses and pnuuiuiiH nf the P.iultry and Pet Stock Association having exceeded the reoeipts, steps are being taken to form a stock company, the same as in Detroit, uuder the belief that an exhibition in the future will pay, besides making up the deficiency. ÍP you enter the store of Wines & Worden, there you will find Mr. Wm. Fiacher, who has held a clerksliip with this firm for thirteen consecutivo years. Although this firm has a corps of competent and tnutlemaoly clerka, there are many ladien who desire to be waited on by Mr. Fischer only, for they always fiad hiin the same, and he has obtained confidence of the "darling dears." Good clerks and proprietora always malee a business popular. Tuk will of the late A. K. Clark, of Salioe, was filed for probate, and Monday last, the day appointed for proving it, when certain of the legatees, Mrs. Mtlo M. Rouse and Mrs. Brainard Mason, both of Saline, not approving of its provisions, appeared, by attorney, as contestant, and Albert M. t Mark and Arthur S. Clark, also of Saline, and the remaining legatees, appeared as proponenta.

He must be a good clerk, thoroughly honest and competent, to maintain his position for so many years ; in fact, both parties must bc ■ genial spirits, and their being associated together for so long a period speaks volumes in favor of both parties. Mr. Binder is quite popular among our Germán peoplo, and necessarily attracts and holds considerable dI' their trade. The mnual session of the Grand Kncampinent, I. O. O. F., of the State of Michigan, will be held in this city, commencing in the eunrt house on Wednesday, February Uth. The nuinber of delegates will be ubout 150. On Thursday, the Itth, Ingersoll Encanipuient of uniformed patriarchs, No. 12, of Detroit, will visit the enrampment. and immediately after dinner will parade the streets. Their uniforms are similar to the Knight's Templar, only a little more gaudy ; and as ihey took the pr.ze (we believe) at the Centennial as being the bost drilled and equipped cncampuient in the Union on their grand parade there, we can expect to see a fine body of meu and fine evolutions. An invitation has been extended to Company A to ecort tbem, which has been accepted. Ski ii Gilland, a stout two-fisted, ableboilied man, was arrested for refusing to support his sick wife and several small ehüdren. He was compclled to give bail to provide for their support or go to Ionia for ninety days. Hochose the formeralternative, N'elson Sutherland, for whom he had worked, going his security. While his fainily were starving, Gilland had moncy wit h which to purchase fine $10 boots, and attend dances with awoman other than his wife. We understand he says that when the ninety days are up, not one dollar more will he provide for his family. If such are his sentiments, a coat of tar and feathers and a fence rail-ride would be none too good for him. His wife, who was a fine looking and amiablc girl when he marricd her, has mffered more than she will teil, wlule living witb this fellow. Mr. Shoemaker, president of the State Pioneer Society, sends us the following : ''The annual meeting of the State Pioneer Society will be held at Lansing in Repre sentative Hall, commeocing Wednesday, Feb. 4th, at two P.

Time will also be set apart for five minute speeches, reminiscences, etc. Reduced rates have been secured at all the leading hotels in Lansing. Arrangements have been made with the principal railroads leading to Lansing, to sell tickets to Lansing and return for two cents per mile each way. There has been considerable difficulty of late in the ranks of the Ann Arbor City Band that dates back to the last election of officers. The election was on regular night for election as provided by the constitution of the organization. In order to allow all members to be present the president did not cali the meeting to order until 9:30, when 18 of the 22 members were present. Mr. Simonds received 12 and Mr. Otto 6 votes for instructor, and the former was declared duly elected ; and frora this really dates the trouble as the Otto faction did not propose to submit. Of tbose not present not all were Otto men. The statement bas been made that the Bubscriptions were secured with the understanding that Company A were to have charge of the instrumento, but the subscription paper upon which the subscriptions were received does not bear out this assertion ; furthermore the band have themselves paid $117 towards the instrunients and are therefore entitled to a voice in tbe matter. Henee the attempt to force the members of the band who prefer Mr. Simonds as leader and who do not t-o desire, to turn over their instrument to Company A wiil bear a little investigating. The question should be settled with respect to the rights of all concerned. The regular organization bas been kept up frojp the outset and now they have legally incurporated themselves so that any question as to rights in the premises can be legally adj usted.
