H. Land of Detroit, who Is 1 ported by Dr. J. A. Robinson, of Í snn, the president of the aspocialion. Dr. Land has a righteous cause, and in the ] end he will ttlumph if not now. , The court house is now insured for ' $55,000, in twelve different companies, and rated at$l instead of $1.50 as hereto c fore, a saving to the uouuty Mr. Units te'ls lis, of $270 for the three years.

' There is a barber shop in the 5th ward t of this city which is a regular gymnasium, dental and tonsorial parlor combined.

The Doctor will have things IHted up In good stylo, and the excellent taste of liix most excellent assistant. Dr. Phillips, will be brought into requisition in fíxing it up.

Mr. Keech for years I has went to considerable trouble and expense to secure for the journalists here mll and complete returns from the entire county on the nights of election, thus I enabling them to complete their tables l at an early date. This he did at tho recent local option election, according to j custom, besides rendering courtesies at j other times and in other ways. It is not s surprising to learn that such a man is . succeseful in his undertakings. And one ( can imagine that when the writer of thls item was iiil'ormed the other day that the Ann Arbor office was ainong the best managed in this state, and even in the union ; that fewer complaints carne from i here about the service; and that more ) contidenee was reposed in the management than in any other place in the state; I one can imagine, we repeat, that the in' formation feil upon welcome ears. "May i he live long and prosper," is the wish of all Ann Arbor qulll drlvers for Mr. 1 Keech. '
