A few days alooe an engineer on tho Toledo & Aan Arbor railroad laved tlulite of a little child on the track, by limb ing out on ihr fow. atelier and telzing him.

We notic.e that a drciulit of fbur weeks' Uuration is repurted lnun (ha soutlitrn counties of this stote, ¦Mkiaff the farmers feel very down spirited. Kven in the snuih ern portion of this county, particuhirly in Freedom and Manchester, but little rain has fallen. None of the tields in this vicinity, or that of Dexter.Ypsilanü or ChalMS, are reportad a.s suffering to anyserious ¦¦ tent tor want of rain. But there will be a cry before long if we dou't liave sorae rain. And now comes the Herald, of Livingston county, X. V., and asseveratestlmt the address ilelivercd by jmsident Cornwell, of Vpsilanti, at the recent meeting nf tiremen at kalainazoo, was a plagarisni from an address delivered by the president of the New York as-ociation at a recent meeting. The Herald shouldn't be too fast. Perhaps the New York man purloine.l the siicccb from our president. The Chicago ínter Ocean of May Tth, has the following very complimentary notice of'Otie" Haven, fonnerly of this city : " The rapid growth of the Evanston high school, under the superintendence of Professor O. E. Haven, has compelled the school board to reut Jennings Hall, tlie laigMt lmll nthetown, for school piirpiies. About five hundred dollars will bc expended in fitting it up for its new use." There is quite a general complaint aniong farmers that corn planted íroni last year's set)d has failed to come up, and sevenü tlelds that we know of has been replanted with seed grown in '79. The farmers attribute the failure to the extreme dampness of last fall, and freezing up before becoming thoroughly driedout, which destroyed the germ. The corn looks nice and bright, but will not not gemínate. tfevn. Brlaazer A Witmer have one of tho fincst animal tr;ips we ever saw, which tlu y are introducin-,' to the people of tais section.

There is to be an oíd íolks' social at the fifth ward church, this, Friday evening, under the auspices and for the benefit oí the Sunday school connected with that church. Very many have agreed to appear in costume, and it is to be hoped that both gentlemen and ladies will resurreet some oíd or quimil costume of their ancestors, don the same and hie themselves to the clnircli this evening. Ye oíd folks songs will be suug, and ye olden times rcvived. By stayiiiff away you will miss a rich treat. Don't forget your mite eitlier, for that will lie wanted, too. :... AUft e. Wlmot and Miss Luie Nicholit- daughter ot froi. u a.. nifoM, of the high school- have for sometime been pursuing art studies at Cooper InstituU-, in New York city. At the close of the term Uure prizes wem dMritmtPd for the hr-i workniansliip, and ml of acompatiag clMI OtHt tktm two Aun Arborladies eaoli oap tured a prize. Thisis a high compliment to thein, and denotet time wal] spent in thatr studies. After a reception giveit the winners of the prizes in New York city, the young ladies wQl return to their homes in thUnty. Wouldn't it look well to rive them a reception when they arrive home? Memorial ilay will be appropriately observed at Chelsea, exercises beinr held at Oak Grove cemetery. The procession Uto form at the Congregationnl ohureli at four o'clock p. in., when they will march to the above cemetery. The exerclses will con.iist of prayer, the reading of the roll of honor, au oration by the Hon. Chas. Rynd, of Adrián, and a recitatiun, "Cover them over with beautiful flowers," music by the Chelsea cornet band being interspersed. The processie ui will then reform atid iroceed to decórate the graves of the soldier d-d, ('ontiibutions of flowers and evergreens are desired. They may be brouhgt to the church or to the cemetery, where the committee will take charge of them. TJie coinmUtee of the comnion counpU wkM was eiiiiMjui-n-il to enter into a contract lor the building ot' tw luidles over the Huron, one on Pontiac street and the other on Wall tieet, liave just lot the contract toa Toledo lirm. The tiist mentioned bridge is to be of iron, and to cost $5,608. The lower bridge to be of iron and wood, and to cost $1,51"). In addition to this tincity is to huild the pier and abutnient-, which will uuke the two cost in the borhood trf $9,000. ThU seems a expcnsivc, hut l the contractors are watched pretty well, and made to do their laboras . they sliould, the city will noi be botbered ; about her bridges again in many years. The best s most always the cheapest. We team that Prof. J. B Davishas been liired to ráperintend the construction of the bridget, Tke l'ontiac street bridge will be 180 feet long. Ilaving notiivd tunor liulky liorsos rccoiitly upon the sirci-ts, we give d.llowlng remedy, whlch is taken frum :in cld issue of the New York Observer, aud may be of valué. A wiïter iu that paper says: Some years ago I was delaycd in returaiag home by i break in the raibroad, requlriag a détour f sonie twenty miles. In order to niukc tliis I liirivl i buggy and drivi-r. Hut the lunst provcd a most agjfravatiug balker. He balked when there was no reason or occasion for it. While we were at ¦ certain point, striving in vain to get the beast going, either by the argument of persuasión or blows, an Adam' express wagon came along. The driverjumped from liis seat, took the wlii] and just gently (not striking with it at all) touched the animal under the belly, back of and near the fore leg, and immediately the horsc went on its way. We tried it repeatedly afterward.and alwayswith success. Laat Mondny erenlog whüe Jacob Qroashans, a well-to-do Germán farmer of LodI, was retarnlng to his home from tliis city, on a load of lamber, a radden jolt of the wagon tlirew liim from his seat, and falüng in front of the forward wheels the HM nniwuwl to.. lita titíL ;Mi;.ti,,f njH lies fi-om which he died wirliin a half an hour. Tli is was near the residenoe of Steplien Mills. Mr. F. E. Mills being attnoted by the driverless team, which was attempting to run, stopped them and after hitching them to a ]ost, proceeded back on the road to ascertain the trouble. He fond Mr. (irosslians. who was conscious, but unable to stir, and carrying him to the house, sent for a physician. But he lived a short time only. The doctors say his neck was broken. The deceased was a sober, industrioua man, never indulging in beverages of any kind, and was greatly respected by all of his neighbors. He hau been in poor health for some time and it is thought by some he feil from the wagon in a faintiDg spel). His wife is sister of John Keek, Of lliis city, and thcy have three sous. Mr. (trosshans was born in Wurtemburg, (crmany. in lH2:i, and oaflM to tliis country in Is:,;;. '
