Court convened Monday morning and the Goodale divorce case was postponed until tlie first of August. It is estiuiated for Michigan that the apple crop will be 55 per cent, and peaches 60 per cent. This is probably a liberal estímate. _#_ The new firm of Fall and Hendricks have been taking: au inyoice this week and ate now ready to start out. They open. up to-niorrow. Jir. Kelsey, the old man injured last week by being struck by au engine at the railroad crossing, was able to be up and dressed the other day.

It knocked him down and cured him of a headache he had had for some time. A novel scheme; walk up and take a shock. The first $50. for wood-chuck scalps having been exhausted another $50. has been approprlated by Ann Arbor Township. There is a kind of a lull in the trade now owing to the boys being engaged in the harvest field but this will brighten it up. This morning at 3 o'clock the house of Cari Schulz, a carpenter living on Spring street, was discovered in flames. The building, part of which was new, burned soquickly that but little was saved, and the insurance on it was only $1,000. It was the work of an incendiary. Sorae burglars went into the house Prof. Pettee is building, Tuesday Qlght, nel after breaking open some tooi chests 'hey gathered together about $80. worth f carpenters' tools. But before takine tliem away they were fnghtened oft', 'eaving behind them their own tools. Where, oh where are the excursions to Detroit, or Lansing, or Put-in-Bay this year? Every year, hitherto some church orïanization or Co. A. have gotten up cheap excursions out of town and given e people a chance to get away with ¦W families for a holidiiy. Are there t0 be none this season? A L(ige of Knigh'ts of Pythias was in'!"uted Monday night by C. A. Hack, T'oe chancellor commaiuler of the order, ajMfiveotherofficersfrom Detroit. Their offleers are as follows : Past chancellor nunander, J. Wm. Hangsterfer; chancw'or commander, Dr. V. C."Vaughan; 'C chancellor, Dr. G. A. Hendricks; 'relate, William Merithewj master-ofrnis. J.

VVhen the members of the Ann Arbor bicycle club ride down there they are at once snrrounded by a curious throng. Manchester bas machines, Saline lias a strong club of good riders; whynot Ypsi? Perhaps they are waiting for the "trycycle." In speaking of a sewing machine case of Mary Tubbs vs Grincll Bros. whlch was tried in Dexter last week the Leader affhmsthat: "A. J. Sawyer represen ted the plaiutiff, and Capt. Allen and D. Cramer, the defendants, and oh! such a reckless waste of wind, Dexter never before witnessed." However Sawyer got $22 damages for his cliënt in return for bis wind. Not so bad a waste of wind after all. The dapper racket is let loose all over town these days by the idle small boy. No boy nowaduys is happy if lie cannot be driving some one wild with the senseless and monotonous clatter of the bones or sticks. If they would put the time ¦ sumed in the practice of this accomplishment into practicing telegraphy they would soon be able to take the placs of some of the strikers at a salary. "A hint to the wise," etc. Sophie Lyons was taken before Judge Cooley Wednesday morning and after argument by Prosecuting Attorney Whitinan and Mr. Cowles, her attorney the bail was fixed at $1,500. It was thought that as she already had been in duress since February 1882 the original amount, which before she was unablo to obtain, was suffleient. Two Detroit parties, William Dinncn and George Wood are her sureties, so the county will be relieved of her keeping until the trial, which Mr. Whitman proposes to push as soon as possible. A bold bad housebreaker was all but captured at the T. A. A. & G. T. depot Tuesday evening. It seems he had been plying his trade at Pinckney and had cut his hands quite severely. By some means the railroad men recognized him wheu he carne down on the train and wlien it arrived here Sheriff Wallace was at once telephoned for, the train being delayed in the meantime under pretense of a hot box. Soon the sheriff came tearing up in his buggy jumped out, rushed into the car and looked around for Mr. Thief, but without seeing him. The train men had forgotten to watch him, and he havlng smelled a mousc, had evacuated. He had gone - "Over tho nelghbors fence Aud he iiint been seeu thero slnce." Michigan is not a good state - to emigrate froni, but it is a capital one to live in. The older sottlers who have had experience in new countries usually advise the boj's to stick to the surety here, rather than to take the chances in Dakota. One of the oíd úneles gives bis nephew these points: "Young man, Michigan is one of the best States in this great and glorious Union, and if you are comfortably fixed here, you will have to hunt a good while before flnding a good excuse for pulling up stakes. Listen to your kind oíd únele and be sensible. Stay right here, in the old Wolverine State, marry a Michigan girl, invest your earnings In Michigan property, and if any body tells you of a fairer clime than this, where wealth is gained with little or no labor, toss him a salute froni the hem of your ear, play him a tune from your nose, a la flute, and bid him begone before you pin him to a tree with a pitchfork. There, now, sonny, run down to the depot and meet the boys on their way back from Dakota."
