O:mson went to Detroit Monday, and put one of his patent smoke consurners on one of the boilers of the steamer "City of Alpena," of the Detroit & Cleveland Steim Navlgatlon Co's line. Itis altogether probable that all the boats of this line, four in number, togetlier with a lurge number of steam barges controlled by thll Co., will soon liave this invaluablc invention. When it comes into general use, the great clouds of smoke on the waters will be a thing of the past, ainl tlie ooal bilis reditced in prlce. Leiand Stanford, the millionuirc California Senator, spent $G0,000 In perfecting npparatus for the instan taneous pUotographing of horses going at a high rate of speed.

During the coming Tri-State Fair at Toledo, September Cth to llth, the Stanford process will bc trled daily, duriDg the races, the borses beinj; pliotographed at the inomeut the wire is reached. This will probably break up the eo-called "dead hentg," for if one norse is the f ruction of a foot ahead of another at the wire, the instantaueous procesa will show it. J. 15. Moslier, Wm. Bird, Thos. Clureiicy and Burt Moore were excavating a dltch on the farm of Abraham Mubee, in tlie townshlp f Augusta last Friday, when they caine upon several bones of a uiastodon, olie foro lt'g, one bind leg, tour ribs, the ander jaw bone, foor late tceth iiid two front teel h, together with several pteoetofhe back bone, and two hout each 4% feet loog.

At a meeting of the Catholic diocesan synod at Sandwich, Ont,, last Thursday, ltev. Fr. Fierle of this city, was appolnted one af the diocesan examiners for the current year. J. T. Jacobs has a liabit of chipping in just wheu help is needed, and over at Adrián last Thursdny lie was true to his reputation. He aeconded Capt. Allen just when the secoad was needed.

Amhrose Kearney, of tuia city, mouros the loss of a gold watch, which was taken frora under hls pillow at the Morton House, Urand Rapids last Wednesday, where he was stopping, being in attend anee upon the democratie state convention. The democratie congressional convention mects in Adrián to-day, and many of our prominent democrats have gone over to work for Kegent Whltman, who will be on hand to accept if it falls to him, which does not look probable at this writing. Dr. BII39, who was one of the physlciatis attending President Garfleld. was seriously if not fatnlly injured at Cleveland, Ohio, recently. He came there to perform a surglCRl operation, and after accomplishlng t, juniped into a carriage awaiting him, and the team being higli spirited threw hiia out with resulta as nbove stated. Dr. Bliss is an uncle of Mrs. E. W. Childs, of tliis city. Probably one of the largest crowds tlmtever assembled in this county gathered at Whitmore Lake last Siiturday, upon the occasion of the furmcr's picnic. It was a monstrous crush, notwlthstanding the threatening aspect of the weather in the morning that kept the more timid at home. If all had come that intended to, there would hardly have been sufflcient room in the township to have accomodated them. The rain came after dinner and spoiled the exercises, and Uispersed the crowd to a great extent. But neverthe-less those who did go had a right good time. Saturday forenoon a disgraceful scene occiirred on our stieets, the cause being aa irate colored woman, the wife of Jos. Schermerhoni, endeavorina; to cbastise her husband for nlleged violation of the marital vows. Sue kept up the warfarc vvith whip and tongue for 3ome minutes, until Sheriff Walsh appeared on the scène and marched Joe off to the county boarding house. Af ter lier husband was taken care of she cnrae back to the grand stand- John Freernan's dray- and made a speech, telling how she had been abiwed by liim after buying him a wagon and team and setting him up in business ; how he staid out nights, etc, and at last she siüd she would nevcr hare anything more to do with him, and went away vowing vengeance on the woman who liad lead her spouse astray, lf she could ever lay hands on her. Public sympathy seemed about equally divided between the two. At an adjourned meeting of the regents Monday evening all were present except liegent Shearer who is out west in search of better healtli. Miss LoisStoddard and Miss Mary Guller were appointed as nursea in the unlversity hospital, at $150 per year each. Prof. T. J. Wrampelmeier tendored nis reslgnation as asst. professor of organic chemi9try, to take eflect Oct. lst, which was acccpted regretfully. 111 liealth caused the actlon. Letters of acceptance were received from Miss Mary H. Cullings as Asst. Demonstrator of Anatomy, and from Walter Miller as instructor in Greek. The title of Judge Cooley's position was changed to "Professor of American History and Constitutional Law. and Dean of Political Science." Levi T. Griffln, of Detroit, was choscn as Fletclier Professor of Law in place of Chas. A. Kent resigned. This professorship has long been a stumbling block in the regent's way.

The managers o 11 er #3,000 cash In premiums, and are making evory effort to haee thls oue of the best fair the society has ever giren.

In the line art department probably no place in the state could make a better showing than Ann Arbor, if she only sets out to do it. In vegetables, the season m;iy have boen auch that the erop may be a little short In quantity, but the "flats" hnvübouis have had a grand year, will bc broiijfht in profusión by gardeners and farmers. In cereals the products are such as to make a very line showing. Ilovf tho big pumpkin and the mammoth squash will come out is a questlon the tall corn stalk may be a failure, but tliat which is of value to the people will not be lacking. With a fair on each iide of us, extra efforts will be made for the county fair thls eeason. üne of the drawing cards of the exhibitiou will be a bona flde balloon ascensión, on the afternoons of Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
