The farmer's picnic at Whitiuore Lake last Satuid-iy was a perfect success in every way. The day was one of the most beautiful the season has ofiered, just about hiiinid enough for picnic purposes. The crowds commenced arrlving at the Lake quite early in the inorningand kept it up until afternoon, good judsres placing the numbers present at 10,000 people.

Peters, of öcio, and Rev. Samuel H. Adams of Ann Arbor. Il was rumored about the crowd that two boys had been drownel over on the west side of the Lake duriiiK the afternoon but the rumor was proved to be unfoiinded, and nolhiiijr of an iinpleasant nature occum-d to mar the ;eneral festivities.
