He leaves a wife and three sous, the lattcr all arrived at ma u's estáte. Another little incident carne to light the other day as showing the value of a certain receipt in Dr. Chase's Recipe Book. A lady in this city recently received a letter from a fnend in Scotland who enulosed a very valuable recipe for a washing fluid which was beiiifi solil in that country. At the same time she was admonished to keep it secret. But the lady being familiar with the Recipe book, recognized It at once and was rather amused that it should be sent back to Ann Arbor with so niuch secrecy. Col. John L. Burlelgh in Cherubini, the Bohemian, was greeted with i good audience last night. The operu house lias been seldom so well-fllled with our best people, even to the trallerie. It was quite noticeable that for the iirst time, .iluiost, in the history of the opera house, Ihere was respectful silence In the gallertes, and not a disrespectful word, whietle, or uncouth noise was uttered dnrinj; the entire evening, a compliment seldom paid to an actor in tbis city. The actiDg was a Burprise to most of the listenera, being far better tliau was anticipated. The play was a tame one, and only good artists, for the support was excellent, could relieve it of teiliousness. But all was attention, and the general verdict that Col. Burlelgh had struck his forte and has a grand future before him. Should the Colonel return and give the people some of the standard playp, he would doubtless be giveu a hatidsome reception. The man who told us about it agreed by all the almanacs ever published that he wouldn't inention the incident for the world, but he did just the same. The joke is on a prominent member of the prohibition party residing in the 5th ward, of this city. Accustomed to early rising, of couree, last Friday morniug he awoke, spoke to his wife, and both agreed that it was time to arise andcommence the day's work. It was almost light enough Uien to eet along without a lamp, but not quite. So they got up built the fires, dressed the children, and comraenced getting breakfast. Pater familia thought it singular that it was so long getting daylight, and for the firsttiine looked at hts clock. Au expression of horror stole over hls face as he did so. The hour hand poinled at 2, and the other hand at about 3 ! Could hc believe his eyes? There must be some raietakel He looked out tloors and saw the moon shining brightly but no sigm of daylight brvaking. A council. was held ; the breakfast was taken off the stove; the fires allowed to die out ; the children undressed and put back to bed; and the parents, after kicking themBelves vigorously forseveral minutes, retired, after first solemnly pledging each to the other never to lisp a word to a human being about it. Just as if it was possible to keep such a pledge !
