What will you do with this challenge? Come loadod and there will be same fun." N"ow, . isn't that pretty funny advice to advise a crowd to get "loaded" and come to a prohibition meeting. Resides, who is froinor te, fürnish the rnonty for thom to get "loaded" with? It turns out that Jijs Grace De! Golia, of Eaton Rapids. who turned the heads of the young society men of Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor last winter while visiüng in this city. was secretlj married .Tune 25 at "Windsor, Ont., to Jerome Hannan. a son of a farmer 1' four miles west of "Wayne.

Dexter is undergoing quite an exciteme'nt beeause of the presence of a faitii cure doctor in its midst. He is a tall young man about 30 years of age ar.d comes from Detroit. It is said that his I flrst case, Mrs. Wm. Weston, vas svccessful. She was apparently ilying from heart trouble, and the story runs that he came into the room unknowji to her and In flve minutes she commenoed to feel better and breathed regularly.

"Why don't the Times give an open I air concert two or three times a week?" i has been asked so often that we feel called upon to explain that musicians have to be paid for their work and that the Times cannot afford to hire a band to g-ive a free concert as often as lovers of music would like to attend one. Our merchants and business men do not feel either that such a venture would be especially condueive to their interest, and so we see no way to ace desiring music any assistanee . recommend them to take the o: and attend the grand open ai. at Belle Isle, which is given every Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock. A State st. business man had occasion to send a packago by express one day last week and was èxacted, of course, by the agent to put on the one-cent revsnue stamp on the receipt. To get oven, he actually stood there and made that busy agent write hiin a receipt for that one cent. Everybody is hoping that the express ctfinpanies will have to pay their share of the internal revenue tax, but it should be borne in mind that the local agent is in no wise responsible for the company's method= and that if he failed to do as he was mstrueted his employers would no doubt promptly discharge him. The way for the business man to get even with the express companies is to use his inuuence-at the i wn crugh the monopolies. Another fine row in the Pingree political family has arh-en out of the r rel between Bill Judson and Pure Food Commissioner Grcsvenor. Judson had given Grosvenor a written statement that when Spalding secured enough votes to enable the Washtetlaw delegation to nominate he would hand over the Wedemeyer delegation. But Billv wouldn't do it; said he had ..ever made , , a Pr-mise and indued Thomas Clark, of Monroe, wbo had secured his Place on the delegation through G'osyenor's indorsement, to flunfc. Besides this Billy had the nerve to demand that Grosvenor swing more Monroe votes to Wedemeyer to please the governor. As e didn t, Judson says there will be a vacancy in the pure food coir.misisonership, and Grosvenor intimated that When Boss Judson asks for the prisen wardenship he will take such a fall as nasn,t been seen since his Satanic majBSty's celebrated ñmr, n,t r o„j:„
