Kight in the face of one of its great dailies the school board of Detroit has appointed a university graduate as principal of the Detroit high school vice L. C. Hul), another university graduate, resigneil to take a $4,000 professorship in theLawrenceville Acadcmy in New Jersey. Prof. Fred. L. Bliss graduated with the class of '77, and while in college was a live student and made many friends.

II: was also superintendent of schools at La Porte, Ind., for a time. Dr. J. O. Wood, of the Homeopathie department, while passing through Howell Monday, on tlie train, was surprised to have a summons served upon hlm at the instance of one Mrs. Josepli Lameraux, of Cohoctah, iu that county, who came here last winter and had a very delicate surgical operation successfully performed. After going to the hospital it seems that one of the bottles of hot water - usually placed around patients to revive them after an exhausting operation - in some marnier came in too close contact witli the litnbs of the patiënt and burned her somewhat. Just liow that was done does not appear, but it was certainly nothing that Dr. Wood is respoiiaible for. The lady was very grateful when see left here, but some way seems to have changed her mimi, and bas now sued the Doctor for $10,000 damages. When it is known that the operation certuinly saveil her lift', that it was one that has been seldoni performed; that the Doctor expended much valuable time upon her case in order that it miglit be successful, the sult for damages appeari to say the least, to be surprising and singular.
