Joy and others We happen to know whereof wespeak when we say tbat there is no truth whatner iu au itetn appearing n one of last week's papers, clipped froni the Ann Arborcorrespondenceofthe Saline Observer. The item referred to spoke of Forepaugh's leaving with aChronicle editor one liundred tickets to be distributed among the University professors, &c. Meanwhile, the übserver's correspondent ire,s wonld do -en hereafter to observe inore cautlon before giring circulation to an untruthful item of this sort. St. John's day, nest Tuesday evening, at the Episcopal churcli, the Ann Arbor Commandery of Koights Templar will hold public services, beginning at 7:30 o'clock, Kev. Thomas W. McLean, of psilanti, conducting the sanie. Sir Knights will lie here from Ypsilanti, Chelsea, Dexter, South Lyon and Milan. Following tlie exercises at the cliurch, the Kuights banquet at the Cook. It is expccted that about fifty memhers of the Commandery will be in attendance, in addition to some others. To tlie services, which are said to be very fine, the public are cordially invited. H. J. Brown goes into Detroit to-day to meet with the committee on legislation of the State Pharmaceutical Association. The Association will doubtless urge upon the Legislature the establishment of a State Hoard of Phaimacy for the examination of persons desiring to practice pharmacy in the State. Similar boards have been established in other States. A renewal of certificates from tho State board, should such be eslablished In Michigan as conteinplated, will probably be required eyery year. The move is 8 good one. The second annual meeting of the State Association will be held in Detroit September 9, 10 and 11. We have been iuterested for some time in a collection of pictures owned by Mis. C. M. Stone, of tliis place, now on exhibition at Randall'a gallery. Familiar faces recall pleasant recollections of the hours spent in foreign galleries containing tlie origináis of these, and we find ourselves dropping in again and again for another look at some face which has especially attracted us. A faithful copy is not plways an easy thing to be purchased, even inEurope- as any one who hastraveled and has learned to discrimínale UeiUeeU Wliat io sood anil wKt o only a piece of soulles3 canvass can teatify. As the subject of Art in all its various branches is receiving considerable attention in our city, we are always glad to see and note anything especially vvorthj' of attention. We ma3r, perhaps, in another article, notice some of these rare faces which have particularly iuterested us. While i Mr. Davis's office rccently the secretary of tbe county pioneer society, we noticed a specimen of apple tree wood, two inches In thickness and nearly two feet in width, cut froin the body of an apple tree, which witli a number of others lias an interesting history. Perbaps it is sufflciently explained in the following which we found attaclied to the specimen: " March 1, 1S84. Presented by Henry D. Platt, of Pittsfield. The tree was planted by Oliver W. Whitmore in 1826, on what is known as the Whitmore farm. The apple was known as the Detroit apple, and was regarded as an excellent variety. The tree has not borne fruit for a number of years. A number of Rliode Island Greenings planted at the same time are yet iu bearing. The Detroit was n fall apple. The trees blossomed every spring but did not produce fruit. This was the first orchard in the county.7' The president of the High School alumni association wishes us to make it very distinctlj' understood tliat all are very cordially invited to attend the lkerary part of the exercises at the Baptist church, next Friday evening, at eight o'clock. The subjet of Dr. Jones's address before the association at that time will be Jlalbheit : - the scholars' halfness; and we are perfectly confldent that wliat he will have to say will not be excelled dming the commencement season. We will be much mistaken if the house is not filled to overflowing. The treasurer, Mr. L. D. Taylor, of the First National Bank, wishes as mauy as can possibly do so would immediately inform him, in person or by postal if tliey expect to be present at the banquet: this will enable the executive committee to provide for any number of covers that may be reqnlred. Tickets admitting to the banquet can be procured of the treasurer or at the entrunce, for which a slight charge of fifty cents will be made as usual.
