Sunday Sheriff Dwyer received a telegram from Doxter to look out for a gang of tramps who had broken into a store there. So he went to the M. C. R. R. yards and kept a look-out for tliem. jJuring the night, evidently, this same gang broke into the tailor shop of Gustare Herman on "Washington st., and stole about $100 worth of clothes. These they took to a freight car at the M. C. yards and had them already bundled preparatory to jump upon the first freight train tliat should come along. Sheriff Dwyer, accompanied by Deputies Dwyer and Scliotr., and Patrollman Murray surrounded the car and took them into custody, together with their plunder. After it was found out tliat Mr. Herman's store had been robbed he went and identitied hit goods. The prisoners were taken before Ju8tice liutts and will have their examination to-day. They give their ñames as mos. ivejiey, mos. MacKin, Geo. Chapman and John Knowlton, and their occupation as "travelers.11 They will be bound over to the circuit court without doubt. One of tlie smilinr, good-natured people of Ann 'Arbor is Deputy Sheriff Michael Brenner. But he has been frowning lately. The newspaper men are to blame - as usual. Mike's name is pialo Michael, with no other appendage. But the newspapers seem deterrained tliat he shall be rechristened. The Argus trotted hira out as "Michael J." on tlie principie no doubt that somevvhere in their name all Germana must have a Jacob. The Kegister, dispislng to copy nfter another brought him out as Mir.hael P., thinking, probably, that Michael, belng au Irish name, Patrick folio wed as a matter of course. Then the Democrat, not to be out-done, placed the title of "Michael K." upon his broad shoulders, endeavorlng to compliment liltn with the surname of the conomen of that great Hungarlau Louis Kossouth. The Washtenaw Post, never behind hand in deeds of philanthropy, graced the happy official with "Mlobael K.," supposing, and with good reason, that so good an Italian artlst as Mik e is should also be a "Rembrandt." Brenner stood the flrst insult fairly well. The second one he gave a sickly smile over, and supposed the man who wrote that " thought he was smart." The thlrd time he was quite hot, and vowed to get even with his traducers in some way, even if he had to apply to Judge Kinne for an injunction. But when the last one came out, that was too mucli. He took unto liimself a large cune, made of hickorj', and with ugly nobs along its sides; there is a dangerous look in bis eye, and if be should meet with some one of his mis-namers, we should very mucli fear for their life insurance. It shall be our earnest endeavor to cali the gentleman plain "Michael."
