He bopea by a change of climate to build up aconstitution soinewhat kaplred by too close attention to btisinese, and too much confinetneut in-doors. Everybody in Aun Arbor, almost without exception, wil wisti liim tlie best of succeas. On the outlook of the wool market the Michigan Farmer remarks: "So f ir as the (i.-isiLTii markets are concenicd there is little new or interesting to note. In fact, stocks there are in bad eliape, and manufacturera are not takinr more tlian enough to meet ordiimry v;int.s. For For what they do tako formor prices are paid, and some of the commercial press argue f rom this that wool does not show any dlsposltlon to deprédate In price. but the fact is botli dealers and niatuifacturers are waiting for the new clip to appear, am! until it beins to go forward, in sufücient quantities to test valué?, western markets will set priet-8. Already it is stated that maonfaoturen are not able to pay above present prices for w ooi because the goods will not warrant it."
