The weather will be nioeJy wanned up just about that timo and the cool breezes from the lakc will bo refreshing and welcome. It will bc a grand opportunity to see the bcautiful soenery of lake and river St. Clair, and to visit the thriving city of Port Huron. Only $1.25 for tho round trip. Trains loave this city at 7:15 a. m., sharp, and Goddes at 7:30. The Democrat said in a recent issue that to Aldorman Bcsimcr bolonged the credit of pushini: successfully through the resurreotion of the oourt hou?o woll. That is a mistake on tho part of our coatctuporary. Whüe we do not desire to eraso any of tho lustro or obscure a single ray of fame which juntly belongs to the senior 2d ward aldcrman, in justioo to two others we shall bave to correct it. üur council reports show that Aldcrman Ferdon presented the petition, and Aid. Hutzol, of the 2d ward, imshed it with all tho vigor ho oould commaud. To these two mon btlongs all the famo and all the glory of the wcll resurrection business. The route ehosen by Company A for their excursión on the 4th of August next, is an excellent one. It givos a ride of four hours upon the boautiful waters of Detroit river and Lake St. Clair, and also threo or four hours' timo for a picnic on one of the finost located park in tho world- Belle Isle. lt avoids the monotony of an extended rido upon the water and gives thosc attending, plenty of time to visit either Dotroit or Canada if they desiro to do so. A more beautiful place for picnic purposes than the island doos not exist, and there is no doubt but those patronizing tho boys will bc amply repaid for the outlay. Tickets for the round trip are placed at $1. Childrcn half price. Train leaves this city at 7: M a. m. Go, and be happy one day. Oa Tuesday cveniog of nest weck Mr. C. D. Hildebraad's expot-ition of the cryptogram of prison lii'o will bo givun iu tin1 tent. In conncction with this we dcsirc to sny that Mr. H. should bc givcn a fuli house, as he is in need of tho funds. A good name once lost is a diffioult thing to restore ; and tub geuUemau's past carcor, though reformatiou hun evidently been i-incere and effectual, still geerts u bar to his linding employment.for thu support of uimself and bis family. It has long been a boast of Amoricans that no matter what a uiau's past life has been, if sueh an one sues fit to reform and by his aetions provo the sincerity of his purpose, thero would be no difficulty in building himself up, as others do. So far in Mr. H'b eourse this has proven to be a false boast, Now, we are not one who believes that it is either in good taste or oonducivo to good moráis, to have a man como baforo an audience and teil all of tho mean, miserable things he has ever done, which has too often been the case with tempéranos ltcturors. As we undorstand it, this gentleman in his lecture aud illustration of prison life, shows tho pouple what suoh a life i, giving dotails of the abuses aud tortures intiiott-d upon prisoners in general, and not what might be lermed a personal reminiscenco. Admission has becn reduced to tho nominal prico of ten cents, and our people will be placing a dime where it wil! do mueh good by giving it for this purpone. One by one the boys and girls of farmer years- many of them husbands and wives now - return to visit friends and reuall once again the scones of by-gone days. But often the visit is fraught with disappointment. . But few of the uld familiar faces are here. In vain they seareh for the genial, happy, young countenancesthey were wont to see of oíd. A groat change has been wrought by time in their seemingly short absonco. One is in the west in business ; another a rising lawyer in a nciKhburiiif; city or state ; whilo still another is a dipnified "Prof." This young girl friend is nurriod and redding "away in the east by tho neu;" and anothor in the golden state, "by tho sea in the west;" oecasionally une hu made a failure in life, and still another, though so youug in yoacg, hun trod the road to ruin ; while that kind, swuet-.ib oísitioned one, whose society was so pleasing, has gono to the long, ctcru'il rest. WIlii a toar, perhaps, for the dear departed ones, a sigh for the missing faetvs o sweet to meuiory, a hurried (jood by tu tho friends who may be left, and they aro away to their homes again, to battle iu lifu's oonflict, where fato may have placed them, sadder, perhaps, for the knowledge of the advaiiciug years which has been (brodd ujton their mind by the trip to tho old homo. This is a scène enacted ncarly every day in our midst by those who were the boys and girls of Ann Arbor in the years that are past. To visit the old home and reoall the old times and goenos is pleasant, but sad, for. tho fermer actors are nearly all vanished and new faces groet one at every turn Tliey aro thus reminded how fa -t the world moves on. .
