There is a story running around the city about one of our merchants living upon Lawrence ptreet, shooting flsh out of bis water hydrant for brenkfast.

The Register is evidently not in favor of women's rights or even in justice to the fair sex, in its enumeration of summer schools last week, the prosperoua a nd excellent shorthand summer school of Miss R. K. McCaughna was entirely gnored. But the lady prospers jutt the saine. The man who says that the free delivery system is satisfactory mistakes tbe public sentiment. It takes a long time for the public to make n radical change from old cu8toms. In the course of a few years the feellng wlll alter probably, and tlie free deüvery system gradually grow in popularity. But as the Courier told lts readers some months ago, when the subject was first being agitated, the peoPe would be glad to clmnge buck to the old system agnin. Th members of Welch Post, No. 137, G.

We regret to learn of the deatli of Morna, the iufant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. ft. Chamberlain, at their liome 2718 Plcasant Ave., on Tuesday, July lOth. The inany frtends of Mr. and Mrs. Chamhcrlain in this city will tender theiu their sincere sympathy. Thu Sioux FalU Daily Prcas of July 2d contains a full report of the inaugural address of Prof. McLouth in taking the Presiden t'g chai r of the Brooking Agricultural College of Dakota, located at that place, and In au editorial articlethe paper complimeuts Dr. McLouth highly. The booming street just now is that part of E. Ann street known to fame as "Lover's Lane." New houses are springing up there llke magie, and when the fences come to be taken down along the street, and one or two other iuiprovenients made, it will be one of the hnndsomest residence places in town. There are some trees on N. Ingalls st., near the corner of E. Ann st., the limbs of whicn knock the hits oñ of tall men, and the umbrellas and par.isols of short women, while the nodJi of the boards together with the old nails sticking up tn tlie sidewalk trip up their feet So there's bother over hed and uniler foot both. The Rome, Watertown & Ogdcnsburg Railroad senda us a book of "Routes and Hatea for Summer Tours," which is full of interest just at present.

Butterüeld, General Passenger Agent, Oswego, N. Y. The Ypsllanti Drlving Park management is not quite as courteous as is the Detroit Club management, which sends to the editors of the state a ticket of admistlon which is a work of art to look upon even if one does not care to use it. Here the Ann Arbor papers hare been advertising free gratis, the Ypsilanti "hoss trot' which comes off next week, in severa] issues, and yet no "comp." is sent around, which is not very compliraentary. One of the most attractive events of the past week, was one that occurred on Washington st. during the past week, and which created considerable merriment for a large crowd that quickly collected on the scène. It was nothing more or less than one of our prominent and out-spoken prohibitionists retiirning a case of empty beer bottles to Fred. Rettich's. To add to the charm of the occasion lic was driving the rig of another prominent prohibitionist. With a smile on his face Indicating intense delight, and a cigar in his hand (which looked something like bribery) W. W. Tldd, foreman of the Courier bindery, approached ye scribe Monday morning, and we knew by the peculiar expression of bis tace that it wasn't a boy. But then Tidd says girls are ever so much nicer than boys any way, and contentment in this world is happiness. Last Saturday night the important event occurred. There is a dangerous practice growing up among some of the younger bicyclists, of running their wlieels upon the sidewalks. This practice is severely condemned in the bylaws of all clubs of wheelmen as tending to bring the pastime into dlsrepute. In onr city. with its flne grave'ed st reets, there is little excuse for using the walks, and those who persist in lodoing will tiinl an ordinance that makes it a misdemeanor. So boys, don't do it. Keep in the streets where there is no danger to llfe or limb. The South Lyon Picket just about hits the nail on the head : "The successful towns have been made successful by the property owners pulling together Public improvement Is an investment that pnyg. Don't waste your time over dirty neighborhood quarrels, and hold back your aid from some good object for splte, but work for some good, and you will find yourself benerited. Get at it. Wake up. Kustle. There Is no time to be lost, and every little helps. Toot your horn and toot it loud." A young man giving bis name as Uoward, was arrested here Saturday for forging a check for $35.50 on the house of J. El lis A: Co. of Toledo, which he claimed to represent as agent. Mr. F. S Cole, of tuis city, being in Manchester Saturday, struck up a chance acquaintance with "Howard" and together with a merchant of that place identified hlra at the bank so thai he could draw the motu-v. He then rode to Ann Arbor with Cole and put up at the Franklin house uuder a stlll different name. The telegraph soon told tlie story of the forgery, and the arrest immediately followed. Howard claims that this is his maiden offence, Dut refuses to disclose his identity. Mrs. Mary E. Clark, relict of the late Rev. C. G. Clark one of the pioneer Presbyterian ministers of this county and state, who bas resided In this city for many years, is about breaking up her home, and will visit eastern friends and relatives for some time, after which she will reside with lier daughter, Mrs. Jas. B. Lee, in Brighton. Mrs. Clark is a remarkable lady, though having reached the grand old age of 81 is yet active and strong. She is proud of being a descendant of Jonathan Edwards, and the cnergies of the closing years ot her Ufe are being devoted to the Presbyterian cause, of which she is a devout advocate. Her presence will be greatly missed from tlie circles in which she moves n this city. In going about the city a few nights 8nce ye local noted various electric lights that ought to be elevated. In some localities, notably at the intersection of S. Ingalls, HUI and Tappan sta., the light is of little value now, while if it was placed on top of a 60 foot pole it would light a large arca. The lights at the corners of the campus cnuld be made to do as much again service by rauing tliem so that they would shine over the tops of the trees. And these are only a few that ought to be rained. Except in the business part of the city the lights are generally too Iow, and In many places If the wires suspending thelamps were brought up tuut, they would be far better. This isa subject the people, the council and the electrlo light company are all interested in, and deeply 80. B. Liizell, superintendent of agencies Is in the city Ibis week looking aftcr tlie interests of the Michigan Mutual Benefit Absociatiou, of Hillsdale, and has made some changes in the local board, which will hereafter be constltuted as lollows: l'rfulilt'tit- W.

The company has gone throuh the struggle of the laat two years, paid up all lts old lomes and to-day stands a solid and lirin company, one of the very best in the state, having paid to its beneficiarles over $160,000. Mr. N. G. Butts, who now takes the field for work, will be pleased to give Information to any one withlngto protect their family, which it is the duty of all to do.
