A man who claimed to be a "Duffy" had his buuip of lillia- oonsiderably milt-d by the imblbing of too much poor whiskey, and wasvery anxious to show lus pugilistic skill, yesterday in front of the Register office. After considerable high tumbling, and skillful dancing, In the course of which many new and original st ]s wcre introduced, thisunruly menilier of the illustrious Duffy family was taken in hand by the pólice. Mr. Wm. F. Clark, who has been for the past ten years editor of the Huron County News, Port Austin, Mich., proposes to wrlte and compile a history of the great fires of Michigan, giving special prominence to the late; fires. This volume will contain a brief history of the earlier settlemente of these counties and an account of the lires of 1871 as well as of the late fires. Such a book will be nteresting to all sympathizers with the sufferers and will meet with a ready sale. The Ypsilantian has not recovered from its disapx)intment over the selection of Compuny A, as one of thesix compantevto ITO to Yorktowii. nv ntthr over the nonappointment of C'ompany F. The editor of the above oigan has manifested all the symptoma of the ehills of disappolntment, passed through the feverof jealousy and s just entering upon the convalescent stage of blackguardisni, as is shown by his reïii.u ks concerning Capt. Manly in the last issue of his paper. ¦ - The ladies of the Episcopal church are making great preparations for their art loan exhlbltion. It bids fair to be a success in every way. The opening day is Thursday of next week, closing the following Tuesday. The exhibition proper will be in the newly-finished chapel, and refreshmente will be served In the rectory. On Saturday evening Prof. Tyler and many distinguished clergymen from this and other states are expected to be present. The entertainment is something new and every one should attend. Captain Manly has challenged company F of Ypsilanti to meet company A of Ann Arlxir in a pnmpetitive drill nny time bctween Oct. 2d and 12tli, "or any time after the return of company A from Yorktown, at Orchard Lake, Whitmore Lake or any other convenient place, with forty men, rank and file; the committee of judges to consist of offleers of the regular nrmy whose decisión shall be final and no grumbling." The editor of the Ypsllantian now must either bring out his trained pets for exhibition, or "chew the cud of sweet and bitter fancy'' in silence. The Southeastern Michigan keepers' Association met in the agrlcullural society's room in the basement of the oourt house on Wednesday morninsr, October 5th, at 9 o'clock. Several questions of importance were discussed, but as the memben wished to attend the fair in the afternoon the meeting was adjourned. The regular annual meeting will be held in the same place at 10 o'clock a. m., on the 15th of December next, at which time new officers will be chosen. Five delegates were chosen ¦o represent this society at the meeting of the state association In Battle Creek on the 8th of Decembnr '81. Four Ann Arbor girls and one from Ypsilanti are visiting at Farwell, and the drove of feminine lovcliness has been too much tor the editor. He is "mashed." Irrevocably, clean gone "mashed."- Evening News. 'Twas our girl that did it. The only way an Ann Arbor girl cati make a "iniish" is by stepping upon the thing mashed. Their feet are as good ns land rollers for crushing.- Ypsilantian. The editor of the Ypsilantian has evidently been " mashed" by an Ann Arbor girl, and got left. That, we think, will explain the severity of hls attacks on Ann Arborites and the general sourness of his disposition. The following testimonial to the Rev. Woi. George, now stationed at Dexter. taken from the Dundee Reporter, will doubtless be read with interest by the people of our neighboriiig village: "By the appointment of the Detroit conference which has been in session at Port Huron for the last week, Rey. Wm. George will have charge of the church at Dexter the cnsulng yeiir. During his reRldence here of two years as pastor of the M. E. church he has given the best satisfaction both in and out of the church, and his labors have niet with success. He cardes with hiin to his new field the best wishes of a host of friends. Dexter will receive in Rev. George an earnest Cliristiuu worker who will curry out the work." The balloon ascensión on Wednesday was no huinbug. Professor Hogan, the aeronaut, said that he was from Jackson, Mich., and that he was proud of it, a fact for which we are thankful, for if he should ever happen to part company with liis soaring carriage, his body would not furnish us even a cadáver, so we would have no use for it at all. About twelve o'clock, owing to the extreme scareity :imong Ann Arborites of those loquacious members of the human family termcd blowhards, it was found nccessary to form an attachment to the gas pipes at the corner of Huron nd Fifth streets in order toflll the balloon. 'his done Prof. Hogan with an escort of bout two hundred representatives of the outhful aristocracy of the streets proceedd to Ihe fair grounds. 8oon af ter Teaching ie centre of the grounds, balloon, professor and all was sentón their heavenly mision. As he soared away ammig the clouds we wondered that, f he should besuddenly irecipltated to the earth, to whose charge is premature death would be placed, ¦hether to that of the agricultural assocition of of the man who promised to meet lim in heaven as he was leaning terra ram. Weie we to make an ascensión wc would ratuer have Elijah's ballon tlian that f Professor Hogan. No Intoxicating liquorscan be botighton lili; fair grounda this year. Tlie rcsult of this decisión oftlie fair commlttco, however, is similar to tliat of llu: ttwlutlon adoptad !y tlie rcjrcnts in regatd to dancing In university hall, witli onc slight dlfference, the students buikl a paviUon for dancing in tlie rear of tlie hall whilo a beer stuud i erected in front of the entrance to llii' groaBdjL Yíe thhtk, however, thatthe attempt to keep liqnorai far as possible froin the fair grounds is a step in the right directíon, mul the temperance people of Aun Albor sliould encourage this move by seeing that the attendance is not lessened by the ref usal of beer loving people to attfiid a telnperaitoe fair. The following jurors have been drawn lor the Octeber tenn of Circuit Coart : B.njamiii G. Lov joy, Manchester; James Kelley, Northlield; Hadley H. Webb, Pittsfield; Silus Pratt, Salein; James B.

The editor of the Ypsilaatian is fearfully and wonderfully made, al least, he gets his Ideas concernliig Ann Aiboï asauclutluus and Institutions fearfully and wonderfully mixed. If there is a single student umoiif; the meinbers of the Hose Co., we have yet to learn his name. They are young men but not students. Here is what he says about our boys: "The Ann Arbor Hose Co. issued a challenge to the Ypsilanti fire department for a race for $50, to take place at the county fair in Ann Arbor. The challenge was acccptcd, provided the Ann Arbor steani lire engine should compete with the Cornwell fire engine of this city, durillo the fair of the eastern Michigan agricultural society for $100, both of the contests to be governed by the Michigan state fireman's association rules. The Ann Arbor company has just been in active training for the tournament at Coldwater, and is composed, not of practical firemen, but of athletes trom the university, and their ssuing 11 cliallcnge to a company who never set tlicni-chcs up as tournament competitors, was the mcrest, sheerest 'bunkum.' Not to be outdone, the challenge WaS aCCepted O" ' nbovO terms, ot' MIMM knowing that the Ann Arbor steamer could not Compete with our steain Are engine. It apiears like a competition on the score of 'buiikum' and the thlng is equal all aroi'.nd. and seems like a rratuious advcitNcincnt on both lair?."
