The festivities of the bieimial session of the ) Michigan Turubizerk opened m this city (rather ■ prematurely) on Sunday, and continued during ' Mouday and Tuesday, in accordance with the advertised prograinme, closing Wednesday forenoon. ïhe weather waa very unfavorable for the exercis6s at the park, and the closing bal had to be held in Turner Hall instead of on the grounds. Visiting societies were present from Adrián, Detroit Grand Eapids, East Saginaw, Saginaw City, Jackson, &c, though not in as large numbers as was anticipated. The concert or operetta on Monday evening, by the Lyra Society, of East Saginaw, was a success, and the ball on Tuasday evening would have been but for the crowd. The address of Dr. Georg, at the park, was well spoken of. The prizes were awarded as follows : To Societies, first second and third in order named - Grand Eapids, Adrián, and Socialer of Detroit. To individuáis in order named - the contestants numbering 15 : Albert Frank, Detroit ; Henry Brusky, Detroit ; Geo. Kuebler, Ann Arbor : Frank Gruesel, Detroit; Charles Dorheiiu, Ann Arbor ; Albert Arey, Ann Arbor. Four prizes were awarded to the Zceglinges (Turner pupils) as followa : Ernest Kieugle Otto Feolkel, Theodore Hauser, and Eichard Krakow, in the order named. The participating Germans and their friends claim to have hai a good time, but a better impression would have been left upon this community had the Sunday demonstrations been omitía,} Thia county is entitled to send three cliildren to the State Public School at Coldwater. There are no children of suitable age iu the poor bouse, and it is therefore in order for any Su pervisor of any town or wards to forward auy child or children coming within the provisions of the statute, until the vacancies are filled. Over four and under sixteen years is the limitatiou as to age, the other conditions being that they "are suitable in condition of body and mind to receive instruction, who are neglected and dependent, especially those who are now maintained iu the county poor-houses, those who have been abandoned by their parents, or are orphans, or whose parents have been convicted of crime," preference to be given to " dependeut and indigent orphaus or half orphans of deceased soldiers and sailors of this State."
