And we feel ure that there is no peraon in the county who would take more delighl Iu chowing his friends through the great art rauoium the Dexter Leader. The Hamburg correspondent of the South Lyon Excelsior gets off this : "The largest squash story is told by one of our citizena. He says he planted one squash seed, a iiumber of yeara ago, and in the f Vi 1 1 tlrew three loads (full wagon box) from the vine. The next spring while plowing with an ox team and spui of horses, he thought he could plow right througb the old atunip, but wimt was his surprise to see them brought to a stand -till. This is equal to oak clcarlngs. Next!" In the case of the Ann Arbor and Lodi Plank Road Co. va. Gotleib Baur, of Lodi, some of the county papen state that the case was dlscontinued and the costs, $16 97, pald by the defendant. Snch however, Is not a fact. Mr. Baur was ch'trged with driving farther on the roafl than for whlch he paid toll. He had ahundant proof however to show that he drove only one tnile and puid the regular fee, one cent. At the trial before the circuit court last week, and af ter the particulars of the case had been explainud to jury, the plaintiffs withdrew the suit and pald the costs themselvcs, thus practically exonerating Mr. Baur.- Saliiip Observer. This snako story is from the Howell Uepublican : " While some of the hands were at work on the new railroad extensión two miles north of this place, on Mouday latt, in cutting off the top root ut an old oak grub whlch w:is hollow, they discovered that the hollw in the root hd been selected by the stiakes of that vicinity as a eonvenioitt )lic ror winter quurtera. They dialnilged atraight huridred of them, and Mr. Arthiir Huntinsrton, who is regponsible for the itc+y, thinks a few more xrhaps niight Inive been found if it had heen neccKsary in order to make a good story. But as one hundred wu Ihought to be enoujfll they did uot look for moro. They were of all sizes (rom four toten inches in length, and what is still more strHnge is the met that several varieties were represented in the crowd." The latest swindling dodge is worked as followg : A man claiming to represent a Chicago provisión houae circuíales a pnper among the farmers, asking tlitir opinión a to tlie probable crops this se;i8On, enrefully notingtheanswers. Attlieconclualon he asks the farmer to Rign it just to givethe report the appeaTaiice of beiug correct, and in nlne cases out of ten a good hcalthy note turus up In the hands ot au Innocent purcliaser, which wlll hnvc to be paid. - Rrurhton Citizen Allow us toremark right here, that a man who buys trom a stranger a note of thi kind iiiml.' by a neiíhbor without 'tlrut asceitaining Hs genuinenefis, ought to be made a party to the fraud. TheRe notes are bouzht by i mu becausd in cashin)í tht'in tliev itet a big sliave, aDd in 99 cases out of 100 tliey inust know tliat there ts something crooked about It. ANOTOEK EXTENSIÓN.

Mr. Ashlt y was here last week and a meeting of our must prominent citizens was held at the bunk to aee what could be done. Mr. Ashley say thecuuipany do not want uiuch of fcsouth Lyon, only that we give them tlie right-of-way, possibly a little more. Ñow, can we aft'ord to let this chance slip through our hands, when the road can be obtalneU by so little exertion? No ! most cmphatically, no ' and when Mr. Ashley comes agalu. let us give him a rousing meeting, appoint a committee of responsible men to sollcit aid, and go at the work wllh a will. If our villasju becomes a place of any sle we must have manufactorles and, to obtain them, some Induceraents must beoffered and what better indneement eau be offered thau ki"' railroad fncilities.
