The meeting of the demócrata Monday evening, addressed by Hon. Win. P. Wells, was not considored a perfect success every way. Rev. Dr. Ramsny s announced for a lecture at the Central M E. Church, Detroit, Tuesdny evening next, on "Cromwell,'1 the proceeds to go to Asbury ChapeT. Congressman elect E. P. Allen, of Ypailhnti, will speak before tlie Unity Club next Monday evening upon the "Reminiscences of the War." Everybody invited. Too much politics last Monday night, so itwa8 impossible to get a quoroin together at the council meeting. It is understooii th.-it another attempt will bc made Thursday evening.

The newspaper scribes of tliis city are lndebted to Thos. J. Keech, manager of the telephone exchange, and the very accommodating employés thereof, for so full a report of the election news as they re enabled to give this week. The gatliering of the vote of this entire county, EO fully in one evening, and the publicaClon of the same the day following is a triumph of modern improvements and inventions that the public can hardly iully appreciate. But the newspaper men do. The series of letters from Germany which we are publishing are written for the Courieb by a graduate of the university who is carryinjj on his studies in Berlin. Our correspondent while in college was known for his thorough and diligent work and these letters further evince liis careful and intelligentlyformed views of the Oerman capital. They will prove of interest because one can get a correct idea of a forcign penple only by a residence among them, but not by a hasty trip across the country as too many travelers go. A young "kid" nanied Xordrok, who has been repeatedly cautioned about liis carele8sne88 around the cars on the T. & A. A. R. R. tracks, had an experience Monday that wil! probably lust him some time. He attempted to jump on the front of the yard engine while the sanie was In motion, and losing his balance feil directly bctween the front wheels. He had sense enough to lay still and before the ash box of the engine reached him the englneer had stopped the engine. The youngster crawled out and run like a whitehead, and will probably not attempt the thing again very soon.

Mills, who has livcd here a lull half-ceiitury, and been ideutiüed with that churcli from its beginning, has helped iinmeasurably in building it up, and is certainly richly deserving of Ui Is slight token of the esteem of its congregation. He is now 82 years of aee, but vigorous and active as many men in their fifties. He lett Satuiday last for his new home in Manhattan, Kansas where he will iive with a daughter. It is perhaps needless to say that he regrcttcd to leare his old home lor a new one. The last tlirec days in October werc beautiful ones. Iu ict we hare had a beautiful fall.

Not returuing tliat night his relatives becarue alarined, organized 9earch parties and have been looking for him eversince, but without avail. As Mr. Stark was subject to sinking spells of soiue sort, It is íeared he niay be drowned, and the river is now belng dragged. He is a brotlier-in-liiw of' Gottlob Luick, of the lst ward. David Heniiing s i wealthy man. He was a resident of Arin Arbor for inany vi-.-ir-, and laid the foundation for his wealth in this city.

No man has ever had a better opportunity to do something haudsome for his old home tlian is now presented to him, and that spot of earth could be made beautiful and grand. The lecture of Gen. Lew Walluce last Friday evenlng, before the StudenU' Lecture Association, was listened to with markcd attention. The General not onc of the most pleasing voiees, but still ranks higher in that respect titan the niajority of big guns thatcomehere to speak to us. llis lecture was fllled with knowledge concerniug "Turkoy and the Turks" that was new to hls audicnce, and he drew a picture of that nation far different from the iinpression prevailing among the people of the United States; showing them in a far better light than has ever dawned upon the visión of Americans in general lie does not bolieve that tlc "end of the Turkish empire is near at hand, for the reason that the great nat ion of Europe can not agree as to its división. Tlie rain carne down in torrente, almost equal to the famous waterfall of Lodoro last Weilnesday evening, notwithstanding which theie was a good sized audience at the opera house to hear Gov.Alger, Capt Allen and Mrs. Hazlett, and no one went away disappointed. Mrs. Hazlett was especially brilliant, and her quick and witty replies to the young men who went down to the meeting to "break her up," as they clainied, sent thein away feeling asliamcd of theinselves for ever attempting anything so ungcntlemanly. They cauglit a Tartar every tune they opened thclr mouths. But few speakers possess the power and eloqnence to hold au audience until after 11 o'clock p. m., yet Mrs. Hazlett did that, and the audience was as enthuslasat tlie end as at the beginning. Last Saturday morning the telephone broogbt the news to thls ofllce that a woman and child had fallen froui the high trcstle bridge of the Toledo & Ana Arbor R. R., over the Huron river, into the water below, and was probably drowned. Dr. Darling, who was at this office when the news cauie, hastened to the scène, and by prompt action restored hutli the woman and babe, who proved to be the wlfe and cliild of V. S.üabrelski, a young gentleman clerking in BsCh & Abel's store. Mrs. Gabrelski evidently dld the deed with the intention of "endtag her troubles," as slie said, and DO doubt now exista but slie was suffeiinf; from mental aberration. Slie was married something over a year ago, and evidently quite happily married. There has been no domestic unhappiness to cause such feelings on her part, but since the birth of her babe she has suffered gome of the troubles women friquently have, and the babe is very lretful and restiv. The case is a very sad one, and the family all have the sympathy of the coinmunity in their afflictions and trial?.
