From 43 acres Messrs. Waterman & Kon. roe of Pittslield, had 8G0 bushels of wheat, an average of 20 bushels to the acre. They disposed of 300 bushels at$1.10.

The Ypsilantian says the Couiueh is mistaken in its statement regarding the condition of the eastern Michigan agricultural and mechanica! association. That paper States that it has never been unsuccessful ilnancially. If that is so, we were misinformed last fall, that's all. But we still think the county ought to be anlted in the fair business. We thought of speaking about this last spring, but it slipped our mind, and so we refer to it now as better late than never : "A great many people are at a loss in destroying the destructive wornis found on currant bushes and cabbage. The surest remedy, and at the same time not injurious to human beings, is white hellebore which kills them without fail." The clouds were very tantalizing last Monday. They forined in deep phalanx, the thunders roared, and it looked for all the world likc a heavy storm, but only ¦ few drops descended. All about us went the rain, but the parched earth was not moistened to any extent here. A little sprinkle, ust enough to scare the colored folks in their celebration, was all that was given us Evart II. Scott, of this city, has charge of the territory embraced in the southeastern portion of the state, as a commissioner to make a collection and exhibit of the fruit producís of Michigan at the coming meeting of the American pomological society, at Uoston. Collections received at the commissioner's expense prior to Sept. 14th. At east five specimens of every variety should be given. Wille the proper official who has the matter of cutting weeds in charge is about t, he better take a walk along Detroit st., and North street, and a few other streets and view the harvest of biirdocks ready for the sickle. Burdock burs are about the neanest things imaginable. There ought to be sufllcient pride about every citizen to ceep his own premises clear of weeds, but here isn't. The editor of the Saline übserver is vrong in his inferences. The local of the 'i hibr did not get left on that excursión o Port lluron, but he had to wait three ong, weary, dreary, miserable hours in )etroit, for those who were left, which tidn't effect his naturally sweet temper, ai ugar and cream effects strawberries. Beides he can sympathize witu those who ïow rejoice. Tli Xiyla City Heraldía tha only state paper that ,!,¦ ,„,( hahlt.ialiy ,teH i,J ,SS un The ibove inay not be a delibérate falsehood, luit it s a fulsehood just the same.

The state military board baring ehraged tlieir deeWon aotoewbat, and allowed the six coinp.uiies atteadlng the Yorktown celebration $1,000 cacli for their expenses, Uompany A has decided to enter the ranks and compete for the honor of attendlng. We are pleaseilto note this chance, and have faith in the ability of our boys to succeed in the competitivo drill. It would be an honor to our city to be representad by a military company at the Yorktown centcnninl, and Company A would also be an honor to the occasion and their home. And now Mr. Potato Bug has met hls match. A littlu brown bug ïnuch Ichm the slze tlian tinpoUitopest hasappcared, wlilcli settllngon the potato bug sueks the lifc out of him.- Berrleu Bpnugl Kra. We certainly rely upon the word of the "'¦-' "-" '¦ ¦ iniilit liis assertion in this intanoe. A professor of bugoloy told about this little brown j-bug. :i long time ago, but we havent seen any diminution of the quanthy of potato bus In this seetion. They are as plenty and as fierce as ever, and no enemy works their destruction exeept paris green. Something new in tlie line of out s thus told about by tbe Clinton New: '¦ 't; ware shown, a few daya slnee, a handi'ul of i new variety of oats, raised by Van Giesou brothen. Qeo. Van Gieson sent for tbe seed to the agricultura] department, at WMhingtM, threc years ugo, anti from tbe few quarti of seed thus obtelned, he will have over a hiindretl bushels tliisyear. The oats are rory largo, and t is clalmed tbat tlitv will yield at least teil bushels more to the acre Hkui the varieties generally raised here." If this item is true, it is extreraely important to farmers, and gardeners, and will do away witli the tleadly poisons now made use of: "Acounty farmer writes tliat lic has found carbonate of lime tp be as good as paris green or london purple m desiioying potato beetles. A few pounds dusted from a dredging box is enough for an acre of potatoes. The.more widely this is known tbebetter, for tbere bas been no sucb ter ror atltlctl to fann life of late years as tbe introduction of deadly arsenical poisons loto use." The Big Uapitls Current is unklnd cnoiigh to doubt tbe true story, about the manner in wliich onc of the Courieu's compositora ruihed to the belfry to sound the alarm at the time of tbe recent tire near tbisolllee. Howcao yon, sir? The compositor, tliestairs. tbc oaalngg, the bair, the bell-clapper, all, all yet remain as eloquent witnesses to the trutbfulness of our assertion, while G. Washington, bis batchet and tbe cherry tree, have long since perished. It beats all how people will jump at fiction and reject the trutli ! Wliat a Hkd commentary on the degeneracy of the age! Tbere will be a teachers' institute for Wasbtenaw county, held at Manchester, commeiidusr on Momluv. the 15th inst.. and closing the Fritlay following. Tbc local committee will consist of Prof. J. V. Roblnson, of Manchester, who can furnish any desired information. These intitutts are becoming very popular witli teachers and of great practical benefit. The new school luw makel ieveral things requisite in avarding certiticates to teachers hereafter, and these topics will be especiully dwelt opon at tbis institute. All teachers or the county who can, sbould make it a p int to attend. A valuable borse was taken from tbe stable of Nelson Sutherland, in tbe 3d ward, last Monday nigbt. After a fruitless seareb of two or three days, Chaunccy Orcutt found it in a pasture, a short distance this side of Dexter. It seems that Orcutt had a horse in tbis pasture and upon going to look after U welfare, found Sutherland's liorse there also. It is surraised that some tired tramp who didn't want to walk to Dexter - to cali upon the Leader man - "borrowed" the horse. Such work is far from funny. It is of the same species tbat took Kodwell's borse and buggy off a few nigbts ago while he was at the tent meeting. The millincry firm of Gidlcy & Whceler have been haviiig linancial tronblcsfor the past week or ten days, and one Albert W. Stevens, agent tor Marshall, Field & Co., of Chicago, experienced considerable difficulty in wrrlng a wrlt of attachment apon their stock of goods, to satisfy a debt of $180 or thereabouts. Arreste and counter arrests, big words and enormous threats have been hnrled about in a surprisingly swift and inartistic nianncr, but up to the present time nobody hus Uien permanently disabled thereby. Several snits have been Ingtitated by diflerent parties, but it is probable the breeze willquietdownshortly and the whole altair beamicably settled. The gentleman spoken of in the following item, taken f rom the I.ake City Journal' is one of Ann Arbor's oíd youngsters. Ye local distinctly remembers the time wlu.ii Warren Jackson handled tlie bircli in the grammar school room, and how he used to "interview" "Don" two or three times a week, quite warmly. Those were lialcyon days - for us boys who didn't get "interviewed :" "Ourold time friend, 'Don.' MeIntyre of Cadillac, who bas just returned fnmi a two years residence in Tucson, Arizonia territory, gave us a genuine hearty shake of the right duke' on Friday last. Mack hus lost considerable of the 'bay window' he used to so proudly sport. Qoeaa he's been to work excavating the 'pay dirt.' " ??- - If that isn't cheek. Under the head of " Ypsilanti telephone exchange" the Ypsilanti Commercial publishes a list of subsoribers, containing the names of at least thirty-eight Ann Arbor people; all, in fact, who are telephone subscribers here. It is sald that a toad, seeing a fly a foot or two distant, will run out his tongue with lightning-like rapidity and lapitup; but we hadn't any idea that one city could gohble up po readily the inhabitants of a neighboring city. If Ypsilanti cnn do this on the completion of a telephone wire merely, what In creation would she do if the street car line betwecn the cities werc complete? In that event vre are afraid that the " terrible architectural monstrosities" on our OMnptM wouldn't effect the gagglng propensitles of her throat in the least, hul all would go down in a single gulp. Perhaps in this is a solution to the Commercial's puzzle: "What shallwido to build up OOf town ? " Go in for a narrovv-gaue, dnniiny. sticet railway between the Uvo cities and unlte them in bonds of steel. Who knows but some day these two cities may yet sing, as sweet-hearts have often sung beforc: Come tak e my hand. glve your to me, ad rultliful wo wlll try to be, Aml theu we'M uil rejolw, rejolre, And tlieu woll uil rcjoi..' !

Happening in a neighbor's eorn-field a few evenings since, we picked a of ears, and in the top of n'eny every ear would be fouml a great green worm, about an inch or an inch and onehalf long. and all aronnd it the corn would be eatenaway. In some ears only hlatraoki would be lefi, bnt tliere would be no hole at opening visible through which he conld have made his exit. He is an UBWekome stranger In these parts. A jolly lot of Rood natured people wore rejoicing in our city last Friday night over the completion of the Toledo & Grand Trunk railroad to South Lyon. Last Friday mornlng the last spike was driven on the road connecting the two places, nnd in the evening, at abont 9 o'elock, some 200 excursionists arrived in our city from South LyOB, aecompanied by the South Lyon bami, uiaking the first trip over the road. But few of our people knew of their eoniIng, consequently the receptiou was cntirely impromptu. The city band was hastily got together, Frank Hangsterfer shot off some tire works, and thmi catered to the wants of the crowd in a very aooeptablfl manner. We are told thatthe iron is being laid to Wixom as rapidly as possible, and that it is hoped it will be possible to complete the track to Pontiac before winter. The Washington dispatches of Aug. 2d, hu the following little story to teil aboat comets : Cornet "C," or Schaeberle's cornet, bas not yet become visible to the naked eye. The weather bas been so bad reeently that but few observations have been observatory says that he can descry a'v' distinct tuil. He thinks the new cornet will be a very nteresting body, as it rises in the north. lts rlght assension is also increasing, a niotion which keeps the cornet near the horizon, where it is difflcultto see it. Prof. Eastman thinks it will be visible to the naked eye in about 10 days. By tbat time it will be seen in the north-west in the evening. No observations have yet btn made here of Encke's cornet.

The greatest blessing on eaitb, wben carried to extremes, becomes a curse. So with too mueh OOnfldence and frecdom of the actions of our children. It has a atrong tendency to send them to the bad.
