And now the cranberry growers ot' Michigan are to organize a society for mutual protection and benefit. Such a society ouglit to be quite tart. Prettygood "Olive olí" can be made out of peanuU.- Detroit Suuduy News. Can be? That's jood. Perhaps the greatest share of "olive oil" in tlie U. 8. to-day isn'l made out of peauuts. Tlie Chotiarng Argua shows euterprise and vim by changing to a semi-weekl}-. The paper is improved in appearance and a credit to the place. May its new step Kany of tlie cosy housea ia tliis village are being decorated and made beautlful with ferns and variegated leavea. Diflerent from house plaats. Don't have to set up with 'eui nigbts.- Cedar Spring Clipper. This is supposed to be original witli the Brighton Citizeu man, who is inarried, of course: "A writer has discovered that persons in captivity live a very short time. This may be a rule, but we know of some married men who have attained a rcmarkable age." Henry Ward Beecher closed the recent free trade convention at Chicago by declarinjj for no tariff at all, and asserting that protection was the "jugglery of the devil." Well, thore are many people in knows more about the "ju(rflery of the devil " than he ever confessed. Capt. E. P. Allen, of Ypsilanti has been reliered by President Clevelaud's new appointee, Mark W. Stevens, of Flint. To supersede such a man a9 Capt. Allen with such a man as the new appointee, is not in the interest of civil service to say the least This office is one that eau be usefully abused in the hands of thoe sinclined so to do. The papers of the state arecommenting upon a divorc case in the Pontiac circuit in whicu the coraplainant is a husband of 19 and the defendant a woman of 17. It is certainly veiy sad that a couple should scar their lives so early. But calf love and baby tnarriages often result in such a manner. You know Owen Meredith says " 'Tis better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved." Perhaps thi6 young wife can give a few points on that subject By Iooking over some of the puffsgiven the new Detroit Tribune, we have noticed in one or two instances vicious kicks administered to the old Post. Such things are not in good taste, to say the least. The Post was a good paper. lts political editor may have erred occasionally in judgment, as we think he did, but that did not detract from the merits oí the paper particularly. Those who kick the old Post weuken their recommend for the new Tribune by so doing. We like the Tribune. It is neat and tasty, newsy and spicy, with a brusque way that is quite popular in journalism at present, but yet we are not prepared to say harsh things of its predecessor. What a roseate view of everything it does glve a man to get martied, doesn't it? Just listen to this from the Vermontville Echo, whose editor is now eujoying his honeymoon: "We earnestly believe that an era of great commercial prosperity is close at hand. Business Interest all over the country appear to be receiving fresh Ímpetus. Trade in all its branches ia brisk and a general good feeiing prevails. Citles, towns and villages show unmistakable evidence of prosperity. The price of farm produce is steadily advancing while the prlce of neitrly all merchandise is on tbe decline. Goods are now sold in large quantities and at the lowest living rates and everybody is happy.11 The following closing paragraph from the Sunday News, upon the Pall Mali Gazette's vile sensation and Editor Stead's recent conviction, is respectfully referred to those who have teen trying to tuake a bif rovr over Ann Arbor's alleged immorality: "Not one atom of good has oonie to London, to England, or to the world, of the publlcation which brouglit Stead into notice. If London was vile before, it is only all the viler for the notoriety and and familiarlty of ita aboininations. Tue grade of hunianlty wbich is guilty of such things cannot be converted even by exposure; the uncontaminated are all the better for their ignorance and innocence, for even the knowledge of the depths of human depravity is pollution." A subscribur to the Cocuibb suggests that if Cyrus W. Field has so uiuch money to squander on monuments, it would be agraceful thing for him toerect a shafl on the ruins of the Andre monument to the tnemory of WilliamB, Puldig and Van Wert, the patrióte wbo :aptured Andre and who could not b leduccd by Britith gold
