Thb late Judge Emmons, of Detroit, ob jected so strongly to having his beautiful premises at Ecorse disturbed by the Canada Southern that he succeeded in compelling the authorities of that road to swerve f rom an air line, and lócate their track on the lands of the Lake Shore. The reverse curve thus made necessary has always been an eye-sore and source of annoyance to the company. A short time ago they opened negotiations witb the present owners of the property, secured the land desired, built a new line, and have now commeneed running trains over it. Judge Dyckman, of Kalamazoo County, sold one thousand bushels of apples from four acres of orchard. Even at ten cents per bushei - which is the average price ot good apples - the erop paid about as well as most wheat crops do. The salt production tor Michigan, as reported by the State Salt Inspector, for the month of September, was 299,579 barrels. The total amount for inspection for the year to October 1 was 2,150,537 barrels, against 1,612,300 barrels for the corresponding period of 1879. The esttmated product for this year will reach 2,600,000 barrels, the largest in the history of salt manufacture in the State. A large number of new blocks are being erected this season. On the night of the llth as the Chicago & West Michigan train was puiling out of Whitehall and about to enter a long tunnel, the eneineer discovered a man lying across the track, face down. As the train was going at a fair rate of speed, and about forty minutes late, and down grade, it was impossible tostop in time to prevent his being run over, although the engine was reversed, and the usual cautionary signáis failed to even disturb him. When picked up, his name was ascertained to be Andrew Gunderson. It is supposed that, in a drunken stupor, he wandered into the dark tunnel, and in lying down to sleep, thus met his fate. A collision on the Menominee Range Branch occurred the other day, in which two entines and several carswere badly smashed. Fortunately no lives were lost. Both engineers and flremen jumped and saved their lives. It appears that the westward-bound ore train was ahead of time and running at full speed, when a wild train carne around a curve, and so close that e. collision was unavoidable. The wife of James Pierce, of Stephenson, Menominee County, took poison herself and at the same time administered a dose to her child, aged one and a half years. The child died, but at latest accounts it was thought the woman would recover. At Grand Rapids the other morniug wliile Martin Adriaonse was shifting a belt while the machinery waa in motion, t the Walverin Furniture Company's works, hls right leg was pulled out of his body and thrown twenty feet, and his mangled body dropped to the floor. Deceased was thirty-eight years old, and leaves a wife and two childreu. Elmeu Slough, fii-eman on the Fliut & Pere Marquette Railroad, was hunting near Sagiuaw the other day, and in climbing over a log his gun slipped from hls grasp. He caught the weapon by the muzzle, and was it toward him, when the trigger caught, discharging the piece, sending the charge through his head, killing him instantly. John Dundas feil from the roof of the Everett House at Lansing the other morning and sustaiued fí.tal injuries.
