Howell is bound to secure the extensión of the Toledo & Ann Arbor H. K. At a ecent meeting its citizens pledjied thcmelves to raise another $20,000, which Gov.

R. from South Lyon to that place, consequently a new road bed would have tobe built. We hope our Uowell friends will be successful. Howell is just the sort of a town it is an honor to be connected with by rail, telephoue, blood or in any othcr munner. It is a fact worthy of note, that there Is a great absence of that pest of the neat housewife and of the baldheaded man, the house rly. And accordlng to all precedents, this is a sure precursor of the cholera. When the houselly is plenty cholera never rages, it is said, but when that inscct8 fails to make its nppearance, and purify the air by absorbing its impuritif, then the dread destroyer stalks forth forth boldly with the scythe of death, and mows down broad swaths of human beings. The absence of the fly in its usual great nunibcre at this season can be accounted for by the extreme length and severity of last winter, which almost annihilated the insect. If the cholera will hold oft' for a few weeks, the llies will be thick enough to eat it up without any trouble. All that is needed is a little procrastination on the part of the cholera.
