CHELSEA. From the Herald. Harvest help s not very plenty, farmers paylng as high as $3 per day ia a few uistances. About 300,000 pnunds of wool has been bought and delivered at this place so far this season. Corn in th!s vicinity is looking much better than in other parta of the county. Wherever a nice Held is seen the weeds have beun kept down. DEXTER. From the Leader. Fred Girbach, whose illness has been reported heretofore, died July 5th, at the age of 50 years. He carne to this country, from Germany, at the age of 19, and has resided in Ann Arbor and Chelsea ever since. The funeral was held at the Baptist Church, and was numerously attended. We notice that farmers are buying a good many hay tedders this year. "These machines have never been in general use around here, but the heavy erop of hay this year, and unsettled weather makes it imperative that haying should be urged as much as possible; and in securing a large erop of hay, a tedder is almost as necessary as a horse rake. MANCHESTER. From the Enterprise. We don't see why our high school cannot become a diploma school, so graduates can enter the University without further examination. We are sure that the grade is high enough and the school work sufflciently thorough. The successful efforts for admittance to the university, this summer by two of our graduates, gives evidence that good honest work is done in our schools. SALINE. From the Observer, Farm help and harvest hands are a scarce commodity hereaway. And all notwithstanding the improved labor-saving machinery. Some of the Pittsfield farmers can already show new potatoes large enough to eat. Potatoes like eyerything else this season are late, but will be plenty and cheap in spite of the bugs. YPSILANTI. From the Ypsilant!an. Parsons Bros. have purchased the buggy body and seat business of E. A. Bovee, with its good will, and will push the business with their accustomed vigor. Bovee will work in their employ. From the Sentinel. Cady is finishing up the interior of hls new block, and the clatter of hammers, and rasping of saws, break the solitude of' our sanctum, but we are consoled with the thought that it will be quiet enough, when the work is tinishedand "business" gets in there. If it copies the rest of the toivu it will be. From the Commercial. The officers of the Washtenaw Medical society for the ensuing year are: President Dr. Breakey of Ann Arbor; vice president, Dr. Chamberlain; secretary, Dr. Darlinu; of Ann Arbor: treasurer, Dr. ├╝akley of Ypsilanti; censors, Drs. Post, Batwell and Warner of Ypsilanti and Dr. Breakey of Ann Arbor. The new Congregational church stands on the south-east corner of Adama and Emmet streets, facing Adams Street. It is of the Gothic style. The leulure room is in the front of the church and when necessary can be thrown into the auditorium, from which it is separated by folding doors with a pillar in the center. It is 16x22 feet. To the left, as you enter is the main vestibule fifteen feet square, outslde measure. This forms the first story of the tower, which as yet is not built. The main part of the church is 45x48 feet, the floor gradually sloping to the front, with a center and two side aisles, carpeted. The seats are square at the end, giving it a unique appearance. lts seating capacity is about 425, and it is lighted by a single reflector of twenty burners. From the floor to the center of the ceiling is twenty-six feet. The room is tastfully but notextravagantly flnished ofl' with plain wooden trimmings. It is remarkably well lighted with tigured glass, and a round window above on each side and one in the rear. Back of the pulpit is a enrved recess extending out from the main building for the oigan and choir with eighteen feet tront. To the left of the speaker is the Sunday-school library room, and to his right the pastor's study, each 8x10 feet.
