Evcry paper we piek up has a programiue for the closing exercises of their school, and in most every address is a roference to the powerful influence the graduates are to exert upon the country in general and the world at large.

The St. Joscph Herald says that most of the small fruit raisers are using the "snide" box whioh contains 55 cubic inches, and receive as much per case for borries as those who nliip in the "full quarts" cuntaining 66 cubic inches. If the buyers would positively ref'use to buy these "anide" boxes and let the dealers and rabera have the fruit on their hands they would be doing a just deed, and serving dishoncst men a clever trick.

D. to woar after hig name. Therc was also present President Hayes, Chicf Justice Waite, Hishops Bedell, and Jagger, Hons. Stanley Mathews and Columbus Dclano, all gradaates. It was a "high oíd timo" for Kenyon. The very excellent commencemcnt of the Ann Arbor high school last Friday more than uonfinncd the prevailing opinión that our high school has no equal in this state, for the thorough training and ripe scholarship of' its graduates. One marked feature of the occasion was the capital manner in which the young ladics delivered thcir well writtcn essay?.

Grovoa, of Northfield, the grass geed in which it was suspicionod tlic eggs or larva of the army worm might possibly have been, informa us that he has had the sced ruioroscopicaily invostigated by Profs.

The torrent of rain which descended last Friday, bctwecn one and two o'clock, camo just in timo to be present at the closing of the high school commencement exeroises at the Presbyterian church. There was a Kathering of' skirts, and raising of umbrcllas - by those who had tbeui - and a gcueral endeavor to dodge the drops which preversely wouldn't be dodged, that made thinga lively for a time. The rain ceased after a little, however, taking pity on the hungry multitude which had boon detaincd in hour beyond dinner time. In the president's address at tho roiumoncciucnt exeroises of Albion college, two of Ann Arbor'a formcr "boys" are thus reI'erred to : "In many way a markod improvement has been going on during the year, aoiong othcr thiugs in regard to tbc museum. Prof. Dolos Fall, on his South American trip laat suuimer obtained at the Uland pf Para and on the Amazon over 130 birds, 15 mamnialn, bcsidea fine oollcction ¦ l' íiim'cLs, birds' nests, sea .shells, coráis, prehistorie relies and native implemento md costumes, lie. A. B. Covert, of Ann Arbor, a firnt-class taxidermist, is now enagod in mounting the sjweimens. The museum fa soon to bo cnlarged to makt; room for tho increasing number of specimens." Thoro waa no disappointmcnt last Friday ovening in the concert of the Beethoven Gesang vorcin, at Ilill's opera house. It was fully up to expeotation and a little in advanco, if anything. The homo musiciana on the progranitne proved themselvcs uioHt excellent amateurs, while of the Detroit orchestra and the Graul brothers it ia unneoessary to spoak, aa they have an established reputation. Af'ter the ooncert several hours wero pleasantly spont at the rooms of tho society over Ludwig Wala's store on Main .strect, in n. reception and dance. It is to be hoped his cociety will see fit to again favor the publio with a conoert. Last Tuesday night a couple of wags thought to play a practical joke on Chief Johnson, so they stufied some extra olothes they had with straw to represent a man, which they deposited in a reclining position on the sidewalk, and then got a small boy to go for the chief of pólice, telling him there was a drunken man to arrest. He carne ingood faith, and twigging tho "ood" took off tho clothos, which were pretty good ones, and made the boy divulge the names of the jokers, who were marchcd up before a .1 Wedncsday and had to pay $5.34 for thoir little joke besides losing their clothes. The boys will probably learn that the stern hand of justice is nota jokist. ir irrm
