Only a chunk of the cornice feil off. It is not expected the structure will fall for a year or two yet. And not then unless the iron in the building gives way. For several monlhs now men have been at work bracinguptheweak points and the amount of iron used is simply cnormous for a building of its size. It has been a fat job for laborintr men. Ypsilanti Sentinel: Skating accidents have been common this year. The Monroe Democrat says: "Joe Willet went skating the other da}'. That is what's the matter with his cye.

An important preparation for a happy New Year is the adjustment of accountsj A man in debt caunot well be happy, if he be conscientious, without some cffort to meet his obligations. A man should be just before he is generous; he has no right to give away the money that belongs to another. The person whose labor we have used has a right to his pay, and that New Year's cannot be well happy which is enjoyed at another's expense. Accounts should at least be adjusted, and as i'ar as possible all accounts liquidated, that as few obligations as possible may be carried into another 3'ear, and debtor and creditor alike will have a happier New Year. Careless negleet and disregard of this duly is utlerly inconsistent eilher with a true enjoyment or a proper observance of this festival. - Montgomery (111.) Democrat.
