The Lansing Kepublican says tbat Ann Arbor people wouldn't know how to live if they should ever mend their ways and put down decent sidewalks. Admitting the truth of the assertion, we can -ay that Ann Arbor has a " powerful heap " of compaoy in this respect. A visit (o Lansing not long ago was only the more convincing on this point. Chas. Tuomey, aged 15 yeara, son of Wm. R. Tuomey, of Scio, was found drowned in Honey Creek, near the residenoe of his father, on Thursday of last week. Just how the accident occurred is not known.

The Ovld Register say: "The Washtenaw board of supervisors wlll stand a tle, and be controlled by a greenboclter." You're a llttle "¦off," Mr. Register.

The board is composed of 25 members, elfiven of wliom are republicana, twelve demócrata, and two greenbackers. With a pretty fair show for a republican leaning on the last two. Some rascal, or rascáis, for whom the prison bars would be a good thing, piled a lot of shavings on the front stoop of Dr. P. W. O'Toole's house, in the 6th ward, last Tuesday night, satura ted them with kerosene and set them on fire. This occurred at about iuidnight. Some students who happened to be passing saw the blaze and raised an alarm before any particular harm was done. The statement is made that between $5,000 and $6,000 are to be expended in repairing the opera house this season. Among the improvements spoken of are, a new tin roof, the walls newly frescoed, the present seats replaced with opera chairs, bozes constructed on the sides of the stage, a steam heating apparatus and probably eleotric light. All of which are needed, and if done will make it a plea?ant auditorum for entertainments. A little article in another column recites the cold weather of 1816. We don't have to go as far back as that year for cold weather in summer time. The writer remembers perfectly well that in the year 1857 there was a frost every month in the year- at least here in Michigan. On the morning of the 4th of July corn and 11 eender garden crops were cut down, and cc formed on water one eighth of an inch n thickness. There were scveral frosts in he month previous, and May was cold and lackward. In August there was also a rost, but still the farmers raised enough to take the people through without any amine fears. Vesterday morning a young lad named Bucholz, about ten years of age, died very saddenly at tbe home of bis parents in the 4th ward, near the observatory. It seems that he retired in perfect healih, evidently, the night previous, and that he got up in tbe morning, but went and laid down again. His folka supposed that he was sleeping ; but, as he did not get up, they attempted to rouse him and found that life was nearly extinct. A physician was im mediately sent fot, but the boy was dead before he reached the house. The Michigan Farmer publishes a note from Prof. A. J. Cook, of the agricultural college, in reply to a letter from Adrián respeeting some new pests which have appeared on the English ivy. He calis thein the " ivy cocus or bark or scale lice. Tbey are very destructive, and can best be removed by washing the leaves with strong soap suds. A tablespoonful of kerosene to the gallon of soap suds will improve the liquid. These lice are very serious pests, and should be attended to at once. If one washing doesn't kill them off, it should be repeated in three or four weeks." The choral unión and university musical society are to give a grand rehearsal at university hall, on Tuesday evening, April 26th. This will be the last appearance of the university orchestra. There will be a varied program, consisting of violin solos, ohoruses from the creation, orchestral selections. semi chorases, quartets, quintets, trio for violin and piano, etc, etc. Ma-ter Philip Epsteiri, of Detroit, will assist. It is proposed to make this rehearsal the best of the course, and it is to be hoped there will be a good sized audience to listen to it. This entertainment is given as a testimonial to Miss Louise Huggins, whose many friends desire to offer a fitting recognilion of her talents and services. The admission will be only ten cents. "Our own Correspondent" (ir; a hom) who rehashes the " Ann Arbor Notes" for the Ypsilanti Sentinel, instead of endeavoring to piek flaws with the local items of the Cor uier, could spend his time to much better advantage in attending to his own business. For instance, in the very same column in which he grows exceedingly smart over a wrong figure or two in a little notice recently appearing in the Courier, we find an old citizen here referred to as "Dea. Loven Mills." There's no 8uch person in the city. If said " correspondent" wan familiar with Ann Arbor, it is hardly possible that he would havo publiübed this item : Theflnest frame house, ora part of It, Tected here stlll stands u lts orlglual site du Hm on street opposlte the nostofflce and is occupled by J. Iiuus Ureen, Orocer. The building referred to isn't eiceedingly fine, nor is there such a man known here mo "J. I ui 11 - Oreen." In stlll atiuther item he speaks of a new store about to be erected by the Keek furniture company. Said company is not erecting or contemp lating the erection of a store. The tudents inay be familiar with "University Bill," referred to by the same writer. These are small things, to be sure, but they are all errors, and come with ill grace from the pen of one who picks up trivial typographical errors in others. Piek the mote out of thine own eye, brother.
