We present a huge supplenieut givinsf the entire proOeedlngl and gK!eclies of tlie famous Michigan Club Binquct at Detroit Mo:iday evening, with portraits of the fanums men there presentí After you have read this just hand it to your nelrlibor and let hhn read it. And tlie lover of stntistic& will flnd tbem to his heirt's content in the Recorder's Report, also given in mipleinent form. There is no doubt but that Detroit- or Pontiae, vvhich?- Street slioul-1 !u bridged wheie it Ofoaiei the M.C. R. R. tracks. But the bridge should be composed of ron. Then, too, tlie bridge should be maintaint-d by the R. R. Uo. The closing up of State street will euable the company to do away with the services of a watchmin. at say $500 peryöprj and the pmpoKd bridge does away witli aimthi-r watohnian. at the same ligure, making $1,000 per year sa ved by the M. C. Co. The keeping up of this bridge would uot amount to an average of a tenth of l,000 per year for the nexl -'." year.,providing it can be BatUfaotorlly built. Botfa ol these improveinents are of much more consequence to the M. C. rond itself tlan to the city, bowever. ia the closing up of State and Page streets, and giving the land to the M. C. Co., the city makes quite asaciiice. If it gives to the coinpany the sum of ?ö,00 besides, as asked for, it ought to have further jiledges trom the road thaii those given in Mr. Hawk's letter pnbüshnrl last week. The reiuimbertng of the lst ward lias been completed, by Aid. Henderson. A banjo club with Mr. J. B. Huil, the Baptist oliuroh organist, as leader has been fornied. Mesurs.

Mrs. M. H. Tuttle will remove her millinery store to the Keek block, in the store forraerly occupied by O. O. Sorg. Marcli lutli. Manj of our citizens may not be awarc that au entire train of cars loaded witli express mutter passes this depot every day, Koinjr east and west. A sinle trip from Kutlaln to (Jhicago costs the express company the snug little siun of $700. In the case of L. J. Leisemer against Conrad Schaetler, for back subscription to the Washtenaw Post, before Justice FnuiuiM, the jury was out only about two minutes, before returning a verdict in the complaiuant'a favor with costs. Jt the following is true it is worth a good deal to know t, and it doesn't cost mm li tu try it at any rate: "Stove-pipes cao be clean ed by patUng a piece of zinc In the ooali of a bot Bra The vapor producid earriM off the soot by chemical decomposition." It has been i .neut wonder to people why tliere sliould be such a sudden rise In the price of hops, and great deprestion in the tobáceo inarket, as therc is no counectlon between the two products. The niystery s unravelled at last. Will Stim50ii qult chewing a few days since. ttw. muer anu ilcnry A.

Prosecuting Attornpy Norris Hppears for the peoplc, and J. F. Lawrence for tlic dcfendaut. Peter Woodruff bas presentad to the county Pioneer Society, a fiïeof the Washteuaw Whig, from 184S1O 1855. It waspubIhbed by J. O. Balcta A Co. in 1848, still later by S. S. Shoff, tben by SbollA M - Criicken, and finally by S. B. McCracken. These papers are a valiiable acldition to the library of the Pioneer Society. Mr. Woodiuff has given about 1 ,000 papers in all to the society. If tlnre are any ordiuary and plain girls they may thank their stars, nothing ever happens to thein, out tlie "beautit'ul and accompüshod young lady" la daily being murdereil, eloped with, or soniet li t iiii else as terrible. Young man, if you woukl avoid sorrow and trouble iind some plaiu girl. and teil her plainly that you delire her to adopt your name and toituue, if you hare any. The paper of Mrs. Almira Chamberlain, read at the recent Farmers' Instltute, beid under the auspices of the Webster Club fo be found upou the lirst page contain8 niany good, sound ideas, ut is a ii unusually able article, and we do not wonder Chat the Instltute was considered very suecessful, for the ideas, and practical suggestions brought before it in papers and by "talks," were far above the average. Lloyd, the architect of Detroit, is in the city to-day, looking over the recent purnhase made for the Hobart Guild and conferring with members of St. Andrew's society, witb reference to making plans tor the new Guild Hall to be erected In thls city. Bishop Harris bas nearly the entire amount ralsed and paid in. It is proposed to commenee the erection of the building as soon as possible this spring. There is a law upon the statute books requiring eacb and every minister of the gospel and justice of the peace to make return to tlie county clerk of each and every marriage solpinnized by them. And the penalty attached is a fine of $50 for refusal or negtect so to do. This record is an important one, and should be a perfect one, but there are a few ministers who have not made their returns, and consequently the record is incomplete. In the Itecorder's Aunual Heport, given our readers in supplement form, there are two important tables not given In the report last year. The flrst is the S'.iintnary table, giving the receipts, exi enditures and balances for or against eacli fund. The next is the table giving the expenditures of the poor fund by wards and months, as shown by tlie monthly reports of the city marshal to tho council. The total expenditure for tlie poor during 1885 was f2,783 97, of this amount, $1,073.41 was expended in tle 4th ward, followed by the 3d ward witb $001 07, and the 5th ward with $588.73, while the 6th ward only had ;5.95 expended In aid of its poor. Ou the second page of this paper wll be found an article taken from the Adrián Record, in reference to the congressional aspirante from this district. What is ¦aid, of course, is mere conjecture, as it is too early In the day to set the b.ill rolling. While our genial friend Joe. T. Jacobs would make a good eonjrressman, and would not be tbc sort of a man who, should lic be elected, would turn tiis bark on tltose who helped him up, yet he is not in the fiild. It is safe to predict that if the republicana of Washtenaw county preeent any candidate for congress, it will be the one most entitled to it, Capt. Edward P. Allen, of Ypsilanti, a man who would not only stand a ood chance ot being elected but who richly deserves an clection. Quiet reigns la the postofflee corridors. The effect of stationing Officer Henderson there has been excellent. Business uien, ladics, students, in fact everyone baring any business to transact at the postofflee now can do so without being run aainst by a lot of boys playing Ug, or some other game. After the rowdy boys were given to understand that they must behave themselves they suddenly found other places to loaf. Jiow that tUis sensible inovc bas been wade, it is hoped that the police couimittee will not change back again to the old way. Another point to be gained by this move is, that ai ofBcer stationed here has a view of all of Main and a portion of Huron 8t., and if nis help is needed, he can alvmys be found.
