Look out for a good time coming, Frank Hangstcrfer havingconscnted togive one of his popular socials for the benefit of the Ann Arbor city band, at the opera house, on Wednesday evening, March ] 6tb.

In speaking of a dictionary we referred to the one upon our table, Webster's. Since then we havo " looked it up" in Worcester, and find it given. It must be tbat Noah forgot it. There seems to be no other explanation. Don't see as the legislature proposes to do anything to rid the people of the unjust and onerous kerosene oil law. The Courier is not the only paper in the state that believes it to be an outrage upon our people, taxing them unnec ssarily. If the lawcan't be changed there should be some provisión for a more thorough and systetnatic enforcement of its provisión. ¦ The Chelsoa Herald has this to say respectinif our band boys who went up to that place reeently and gave an entertainment : "The Ann Arbor band gave a concert at Tuttle's hall last Saturday evening, to a fair house.

Last Fridty night the Daily News boys had the misfortune tn " pi " their form in front of thi office, just previous to going to press. Yesterday the Wanhtenaw Post met with the sanie minfortune.

We have received acommunication without signature, claiming that lbo Cuurier did injustice to Justicc Clark in thearticle publi-hed last week respecting the sentencing of the boy Code. As there is nothing in the comtuuuieation sheddingfarlher ligljt on ihe subject, we decline entering into eontrjversy. While entertaining the highest respect and esteem for Justice Clark, we think it is possible for hiin to err in judg ment sometimes, the same as other mortals, and believe the aentencing of this boy a case in point, that's all. The rain which came down last sabbath and the night preceding made things somewhat damp on the streets. The ('rozen soil of course would not permit the earth to take up the said dainpness, and so every little hollow was filled to overflowing wiili water. The nouthern end of the busincs-s portion of Main i-treet, oppoite WtitbrechtV, Baumgartner's, etc, filled up, and the water run into the celia. The steain engine was brought out and used to good advantage in puuiping the water from the cellar, and slight damage was done.

The Chicago ínter Ocoan has tliis very complimentary paragraph rcspecting our university : "the univer-ity of Michigan is now passing through the most prosperous year in its history. There are now in actual attendance at lectures and recitations given in the niany colleges of literature, law, und medicine, which make up theuniversity, 1,517 students, nearly 100 more than wcre here at a corresponding time last ycar. This is the largest nuniber of students yet reported by an educational institution in the United States. Accordingly the authoritiea of Michigan university claim that in point of numbers it is the greatest collegein the land." The Fowlerville Review of Feb. 21st, contain? the following notice of the death ol'Mrs. Dr. Mead of that place.

We hope our people will notcondemn all thestudeots for the ungentlemanly conduct of the few who gatber in the galleries to insult actors and audiencc. Nor are the student alone. In that vast conglomera tion known as the " gallery gods" may be found a decided mixture of all ages and colors - but undoubtedly all birds of the same plumage - from the bootblack of cight and ten upwards, all seeming to bave one common end in view, that of making th bideous. We don' t mean by this to condenin all who find feats in the gallery, orily those need wear the coat who choose. It won't be lu ïnd to fit all. The entertainment last Monday night at the opera house, given by the Charlotte Thoinp.-on troupe, under the auspices of Uompany A., was au excellent one, and tho oinpany was grected with a full house. While the play tself may uot rank with Shakespearc's and a few other of the .stand ird dramatists, - it was very good - fully :qual to the average. The actors were svery one good ; not a poor one among them. In fat-t, taken as a whole, thecompany surpasses any that has appeared hcre [his wiuter, which we have Hu, and the -ounds of applause with which various cenes were greeted must have boon ying to them as it wan oomplimentary - ven tbe " gallery gods" being brought to iush - bichjfact speaks louder than any raise we can offer. Here is another DcideDt, briefly told by he Cedar Springs Clipper, which ia in itelf a convincing sermón in favor of those erriMe professional school", lor it was hrough one of thein that the good work was accomplished. And thin instancc is tily one of uiany : " Mrs. Jacob Van indt of Spencer township, about six years go lost her eyesight. A few months ago he went to Ann Arbor for treatment. Afier remaining there four weeks she regained the use of one eye and returned lome. Now juat for one moment think of he surprise as well as joy when themother of her children gazed upon grown up daughters. The sight of one eye was somebing worth living for. There is suni-hine n that faroily circle every day now." ?? One of the eventsof the season will be the concert at university hall to-uight, givenbv Herr Auiiust Wilhelnij, Cnnstantin Sternberg and Miss Letitia Louise Fritch, three great stars in the musical firmament, eacli being master in his or her special department. Everybody who reads knows more about Wilhelmj than our pen can teil in so brief a epace, while the Russian, Sternberg has created a furore wherever he has ap peared. Mis Fritch has been well recaived in the eastern and western cities, and the papers speak of her in tcrms of the greatest praise. Even her rivals say cood tilinga of her aceomiilUhuients, Miss Emina Thursby utattng that the has " a charming voice of excellent culture," and Li.sït : " a magnificent voice aud perfect method," wltile the St. Louis Herald says that to all of these she " adda a pretty face and a sweet disposition." Such a rare corabination, at such a resnonable admission fee is something unusual, and the student's lecture association ought to be encouraged for MOariag it. Night trains will run each way on ihe M. C. to accommodate those 111 Vpsilanti, Dexter orJChelsea, or along tbc line, who niay desire to attend. The entertainment given by the Northfield dramatic association,, at the opera house last Saturdsy night, was quite wel rendered for amateurs, and would have been niuch better rendered, had it not been for the couduct of tbe " gallery goda,1 who wcre out in full force that night. I is difficult for oíd playera to go forwarc ili anv degrce of success, when they are continually insulted by their audietice lluw uiucli more su must it be for ama teurs, but little accustomed to the stage ' It is quite astouialiintí that they continuec to the end au wi-ll a.s they did. These row dies who congrégate in the galleries to dis turb other people, deserve to be severely rebuked in some manner. They even wen so l'ir Saturday night as to pelt ladies anc gentlemen with peanuts, paper wads, etc. thus not only insulting the playera bu every lady and gentleman in the audience r But to return from the galierics to the stage ' The acting of Messrs. Purtell and Fenne was meritorious, fully equal to amateurs i t general, as was that of Katie Downs, also , and the support compared quite favorabl to that given by Liwrence Barrett or an; of the dramatic starsas they appear befor Ann Arbor audiences. These great star are always supported by actors who fora) such a gulf betwecn them and the leadin i parts, that the entire play isspoiled by tb . contrast.
