The excursiou of Vigilant firo comj'any last Sunday to Toledo, was not as well patronized as they had hoped for - only about three or four cars bcing filled- owing, no doubt, to tho unpleasant state of the atmospherc.

He forraerly filk'dtho ohair of Natural History in Vassar College very successfully and performed soine very efficiënt work upon tho Gcologieal survey of Ohio. In his experienoc as a practicing physician he has been moro than usually succusHful, and bis private character froui boyhotxl u lia always bcon hcyond reproach. Tho only thing that's all right in Ann Arbor, according to the Ypsilanti Sentinel, is tho flteain hcating apparatus in the L-uurt, which was put in by an Ypsilanti man. Now when tho stroct railroad is made between this place and Ypsilanti, and the telcphono line orcoted, we hope that our peoplo will all go down to that city and view thoso marvels of architectural boauty and graeo standing upon the normal grounds, and then basten with rapid strides to the high school, or acadomy, and standing in front of the same drink in with soul inspiring awe, the architectural elogancc of the many jags and corners of that structurCj after which - but we forbear. That would bc enough, probably.

Prof. Olney delivcrcd thc address, giving a brief history of the building. In a futuro issue we propose to give a eomplote description of' thc structure. Theru was deposited in thc corner stone the following articlcs: Bible, article3 of faith, nanies of mombers of the. church, and church manual, minutes of Baptist conference, 1880, addross to Baptists of Ann Arbor, Michigan Horald, Ann Arbok Couiiier, Register and Argus, constitution and namos of officers of Ann Arbor red ribbon club, Detroit Post and Tribune and Frce Press of that day.

Already I have my appointments. I sh&ll bc obligod to visit Tennossce, Kentucky and Pennsylvania, and be present at four conferences in Texaa. The most time that I can hope to spend in what I may cali my hoiuo will bo three or four months. But wherever I shall go I ahall ofteu think of you. I havo lived hcro as long as I have over lived anywhere. But I feel now as if I must say ' Oood night to Syracuse, and good morning to San Francisco.

Joe, looking up in uttcr astonishmont at the speech and its fcarful import, asks : "What's tho matter with you, Susan?" "What's the matter with mo? Therc is this the matter with me, Joscph II - , I want you to understand that tho unit rule has been broken, and that we aro all to vote as wo ploase, and that the tyrant man Hball no longerdominoer ovor the womon because hc claims to be of the stronger sex. And furthermore, Joc, wc might as woll li ave an understanding now. Hercafter if any firos aro built in tliis house in the iiiiirning, you will build thom. Do you hear, Joo? Tho unit rule is broken." Joo beard, and went down lown to hear tho last ballot.
