The excursión was given by the united Sunday Schools of he city and was a grand success. The berry business as shown by the )ooks of the American Express Company kis been quite a business this year. Com, mencing with June 27, when one bushei . was shipped, op to the present d.ite, ' hete were 2,006 bushels of berries handled at the Ann Arbor office, going argoly to Detroit, though some went to ' Toledo and East Hugiuaw. The largest [iiautity shipped in any one day was I79J4 bushels on July Iltli. Mr. Ames ' ays the figures vary but little from last ] ¦ear's shipnients. . And now we've got a snakc story. Last Prlday niglit a lady was passing a house on Second street, near Ann street, when ' 0 her horror shc espied ¦ nionstrous i lack snake coiled Bp under a window. 1 With a cry full of fear she cal led to a ady who was sitting by the window in he eecond story directly above the repj ,ile. The lady looked down and grew ale a9 she suw the horrid thing lylng In ' he grass. But her presence o( mind lidn't desert her, and as there was a man ( n the house she appealed to hlm for asI istance. He responded, and with a club approaclied tlie "varmint." Stealing . oftly up he hit t a powerful blow, and he biiake jumped up about two feet at 1 i in, and as the blow was repeated some of the polsonous Huid from the enraed ] reptile's mouui struck tlie man on the i ace, and wasquickly wiped away. ' ng the club he had, another, much ' vier, was procurcd, and a ylscious blow truck, at which his gnakeship sprang iuo the air farther than ever, and gave a , oud hiss and rattle. A fbot or two disant another snake was noticed, and the ] mm explained that where one gnake was 1 O be found another wa3 always near at . land; they went in pairs. Just ut tliis , )oint a bright light secmed to shine in i he eye of tlie lady of the house, a smile carne to her lieretofore pallid face, and she went in-doors, from whence peal 1 iuon peal of laughter was soon heard. 1'Ik' other lady joincd her anü the laugher increased. Tlie poot man, left so mddenly alone with both the snakes, Hdn't see anytlung to laugh at, hikI started in to kill the poiaonous reptiles or ( mow the reason why. Just as he was about to strike another ktlllnff blow he ' stepped upon soniething "snakey" and a Itream of water siurted out a few 'eet ahend of him. He looked down at lis feet, examined more closoly the ene ny lic was lighting, sudilenly dropped lis club iind departed. Ho didu't come lome tliat night, nor the two days followng, but on the third day thereafter a trayman catne after his trunk and property - he had chauged boarding houses. This is a true story. No rlghts reserved. It Ann Arbor people ciinnot nflbrd t boom the city, it will have to go un boom cd. Tlic infant cliikl of Mr. Beek, of tb 2d ward, whose mothcr was buried re centlj-, dicd öuuday. It takes about lifteen minutes toget cup full of water at the drinking foun tain. A largor strcnin sliould bc tunici on. Tlic new depot of tho T., A. A. & N M. U. H., Mr. Wales tells u.=, will bc commenccd very soon, and tliere will be a grand transformaron scene in tbat sec tion of the city. Jolin Schnelder, Jr., bas tried three monthg to run the Union Hotel withou a bar, and has found it impossible to makt it pay. He will open tbe bar again. Tomatoes in Detroit are quoted at 70i3 90c per bushel. Here in Ann Arbor tlit consunipr has to pay 5 cents per lb., or about $3.00 per bushel. But tben, our tomatoes are classic, you know. That's extra. We re8pectfully commend the report o Dr. Breakey, our Health ofücer, to tlic Council, and ask our readers to peruc the same. It will be found in the Couuci proeecding3, and is au abb and sensible document. Walter Booth, son of Nelson Bootb ol this city, has slgned as catcher of Ibe Petoskey base ball club, and is dolng good service for tbat Indian named organization.

It was rumored in the city yesterday that Richard McDonald, of Northfleld, upon returning home from Whitmore Lake witb bis family Sunday, found bis liouse, barn and farm buildings burned to the ground. But as near s we can learn a passing engine set lire to some grass on the Toledo road about l'í inile.-i south of the Lake Sunday, and burncei to witbin a few rods of the buildings of Patiick McDonald, and but for the quick work of a fiw neighbors would have bnrned said buildings down.
