Ainong otlier reports of thieves' work this last week is that of one who entered a lady's sleeping room through a secondstory window one nignt the latter part of last week. The thief 's presence awakened the sleeper, who, on finding some one in the room screamed and frightened tlie Intruder away before he had taken anytliing. It is tliought he was after money tlie young lady was understood to have brought from home for her brother, who graduates from one of the departme'.its tomorrow. A fair house listened to the last musical treat of the season on Monday evening. The Amphion surpassed their former eflbrts, and every appearance was greeted witu enthusiasm. Misses Wood and Caruthers, Mr. Luderer and the Beethoven Quintette Club did their part well. The program was in every way excellent, and was well rece ved. It is to be hoped that the Amphion Club will continue to tnprove as it has for the past year. It already ranks high among amateur orgatizations, and we understand that two similar clubs, by reison of the fame achieved by the Ann Arbor club, have recently been established elsewhere. lts presence has lent a peculiar ehann to many concerts during the past year, and all who have heard its chorus work will trust that it may be even more prominent next season.
