The weather of the past week has been a decided mixture, but old zero has managed to keep in sight of the top of the mercury most of the time, if not quite able to bring it down. We have had sunshine, snow fqualls, clouds and breezes. It has not thawed much since Monday. We understand that the greenbackers have api ointed a conimittee to raise the necessary fund.s to start a newspaper here af their peculiar faith. That's right. We re getting lonosome here iiow for the want 3f company in the newspaper line. It's an jnormous bonanza for somebody. On Saturday evening, February 19th, it tlie residence of Dr. Frieze, Prof. Tylcr will read a paper for the benefit of the laBh' library. Subject: "A Wbig Satirist sf tlie American Kevolution." There will lo be be good music. All are invited. Lecture will commence at eight o'clock. Mrs. Francés Monroe, of Ilowell, the lady who, our readers wlll remember was juite severely injured by a runaway accident in the lower town last summer, died it her home last Monday morning, the ]4th inst. , aged 03 years. Caneer was the iramediate cause of her death, butjt i thought that the accident malerially hasteoed it. The fire departniont was called out last fuesday forenoon, by an alarm from the ¦iixth ward, and promptly responded. Before they arrived upon the ground, how aver, the 6re, which was in the house of Mrs. V. B. Jolly on North l'niversiry av enuc, and occasioned by a defective flue, was extinguished. There was but little damage done. ?- The next in the oourse before the students' lecture as-ociation will be Laura Dainty, this, Fiiday evening, asaistei by the Ann Arbor choral union. Miss Dainty is a rare reader, and neverfailsto entertain an audience. Her readinits, interspersed with music by the choral union, will make an entertainment well worthy of patronage. This is in couplet witl) the Bernhard Listeuiunn eoBPUUT. The postoffice ffieials reporr quite a general observunce of St. Valeotine's day by the young people, while ihnse who sell this ppeciesof missive i-ay that nvre el gunt ones were purehased this year ihan ever before. The cotuic ones have bad their day, and the peoplo are once more adopting the pleasant custom of makine the day one of interchange of tokens of love and affection. Thi-r a grand step in the right direction. And still the tellow who stole (hat chair out of the circuit court room, right in the temple of justice, remains at large. An officer told us last week that he was known and would be sciemifically scalped ia a few days, one link in the long chain of evidence connecting him with the chair, and the cuair with the room, was wanting, and it was thought ()r cutt that, and he could weid it again. At least this is a chair-italile statement of the case. A special train carried two car loads of excursionista down to Toledo last Sabbaih, to see the raging Mautnee, and last Tuesday another excursión train took down about two or three coaches of curiosity seekers. Tuesday the water had fallen considerably, but those who went Suoday report one of the greatest sights they ever saw. But none of them seem to have powers of description sufficient to describe the terrible destruction effected by the eloments. Here is a simple reniedy for diphthcria going the rounds of the press, which will not cost you anything to try, and may, powibly, save a great deal of pain and doctor's bilis: " Ooions are an unfailing cure for diphtheria. They must be placed in a bandage in a raw state, and then beuten into a pulp, and the cloth containing thcm, juice and all, bound around the throat and well up over the ears.

We akail expect to see the innovation generally adopted, as there is no patent on it, it is said. Resides being a capital thing for invalid ladies and lazy men, it will also be a nice thing for the boys who go off on a " lark " nights. Theycan stand and pull tbe bell cord by the hour, and thus serenade the clerk wbo sleeps in the store. Company A's bazar closed last Wednesday evening, having been eminently suc Oeaafbl and securing beyond peradventure the necessary fuüds for the Washington trip. The lucky individuals in the drawing of prrzes were : The bedroom set valued at $75, J. G. Oall ; silver tea set, $C5, Mrs. O. M. Martin ; silver water service, $50, Beethoven Gesangverein ; lady's gold watch, $50, Miss Emana Schairer; Seth Thomas clook, $40, Mrs. Morris Gregg. Besides thee there were numerous other elegant prizes distributed to owners of the lucky numbers. The boys feel very niuch elated over the success of their enternrise, and thankful to the citizens for tbeir patronage. The receipts were over $700. About the middle of last December we received from Frankfort, Beozie County, wbat purported to be the tuarriage notice of ono of our fornier Ann Arbor boy?, Dr. A. A. tlallock, and at the bottom of the page a litlle note politely requesting us to jublish, the whole belij rigned "A. A. Hallock, M. D." Of course we compiied with the request. Last Monday Dr. Hallock stepped into our office and wished to see the notice sent us, pronouncing the thing a forgery, at least if he was married it was unknown to him, and he certainly shnuld have been posted on the subject. The fellow who sent u- the notice forgrd the doctors name, and bas laid huns if liable to severe punihment for his peculiarly funny transaction, for the doctor has the note and pjoposes to find out the author A person who would stoop to such uieanness ought to be kicked to dt-ath by u Rcky Miuntan mule.

The fine-t Italian instmment.s are ued by tbe rneuibers of this organization. All the olos, whtther instíumental or vocal, will be ac compaiiied by the entire club. This couibination has at it di-posal such a number of effeciive selections as to offer the greatest vatiety in its programmes without adding the customary vocalist. Our musio loving people will certainly never regret the price of adtuission to hear this company. The University Palladium for '81 is a book which will meet with a warm reception by the students in particular and the public in general. It is fully equal, if not superior to any of its predecessors in point of merit, and has been prepared with great care and accuracy. The editors with one exception, have been hard working, conscientious labarers, and they have their reward in the shape of a work of true excellence. The secret societies, the independents, and all other organizations of the various departments are given their usual prominenee ; the list of students is as accurate as possible to obtain ; while the miscellany and department of " phun " is rich. The illustrations are meritorious and full of' brilliant point?, many of which the general public willbe enabled toappreciate who are not familiar with university and student lore. The book is a gem of typographic art also, the mechanical work upon it, both in composition and press work, far &urpa8sing any of the pasteditions. Don't fail to secure one before the edition is exbausted, a only a limited number bas been s-ued. He who delays purchasinK one will be fortúnate if he don't find him i Ann Arbor bas general] been noted fc í the gentlemanly conduct of its mala popularon, and altuo-t entire freedom from that ¦ most despicable of human loafers, the one ; who follows up respectable women on the , streets, eveuings. But of late gome of that breed of reptile have made their appear. anoe, and one or two nstance wherein someof theladiesof our city who happéned to be i assiog home from an eveniijg's en. tertainuieut or visit have been followed, has been brought to our notioe. There waa one in:tanoe where four big, burly fellows followed a young girl not over 16 years old ; 3 and anotUer where one of our business women going from her place of business to liso oth_r ladio who have hapiwmd 10 l:e )ut in tliu evcning have been doggi d by )ne or more of these contemptible species. 3ome of these fellows will get more than :hey bargained for one of these fir nights. We know of one or two ladies who 8ay they propose to walk the streets of this city in the evening without being insulted by some brain'ess puppy, and that if they are in jnyway intrrfered wi'h, ihcf ilw who doe it will ni-vcr.h iv an nfpl r imiiy to w mmi suiridJp G ""I f'' '' in Th irofi par '1 ' ¦ ca r i th hl , ni me n wha h v -a.

Vran Blaricurn t ok the life of nis wif'o, and then killt d himself, is n t an ex c pti m to this rule. Sime of Mr. Van Blaricuin's relative-, who are respectable, hard working people while not in any way ezcusing the deed or actions of the deoeased, say tbat there were circumstances not given to the public, which would account in a great ineasure for the course pursued by him, and that the reports given to the public respecting his life, and the circum stuncea of his death were highly colored to hii prejudice. They also affirm that bis marriae was not in opposition to the wishes of her family , and also that as far as respectability goes, tln;re are as niany honorable upriglit people upon one side of the house as upon theother. Newspapermen are apt to use these occasions to draw moral lessons, and impresa upon the people tbe mre result of evil cbing. But in every case it must be remembered that there are friends who suffer trom these arrows, and a great chance of needlessly afflicting innocent people. If the truth could all be told respecting this case, the poor wrctch who took the life of his wife and of himself, might have some reason for the dissolute life he lead for years previous, and the sympathy of the people notbe all upon one M'li!.
