Every Saturday : A Detroit éjefetmán, a man wtirmly endeared to a Iferge feangregation, recently refused to empíoy a i)Uartetchoir in his churcli, on the grounds that their unsic wonld be of a too worldly character.

Grand Traverse Herald : In the season of 1880 scveral acres in the farm of Mrs. ('. Gardrier were planted to potatoes. In the fall, owing to bad weather coming 011 before potato digjjing was got around to, the erop was only partially dog. This spring the ground was plowed up and BOWIl to oats. With the oats tliere came up 1 'volunti;er" corp of potatoes, with the JTfOwíujJ Of which the oats did not niateiiallv interfere. After tlie Oats Werè harvested thfe po. tatoes were dug and 100 bushels have heen sold as the ultímate result. The oats have not yet been all threslied hut the erop bas been of the very best as to qUflHty ainl qóantity, What are eommonly known in (rand Travel se U "volnntecr pot.ilocs," tncaniiifi those firoduced lrom potatoes which have remained in tbc ground over winter, are frequently met with, hut In this case the yicld and the doublé harvest írom the same land was soniewhat reinaik able. Tuscola Pioneer: It is found to have been a grand mistake not to have retained here fordistribution theentire car-load of goodg, wheat and other supplies sent Ui this place by the good people of Ann Arbor for tlie relict ot Miraren by the late forest Bres. The demands on the conuniltee tor aid are much greater than they have the aliilitv té meet. New families and claimants for aid. w bo had not been reported at tirst, are coming In at most every day, and we are just bcginningto realize tlie magnitude of the work 011 our hands. We have been short of wheat for seeding, and our committee have been obligcd to buy from the elevator to meel the pressing vants of the luffererg. Anl there is a greal ni'ed nmv of luniber. nails, stove, etc. etc.. U cold weather is at hand. We trust, in the name of siillenng humanitj-, that tbc benevolent public will not fcel that the work of relief is well nigh done. These families will have to be aidcd, more or less, for uiany inonlhs
