The Hiret train, that left here at 10 o'clock ai. m., on the M. C. R. R., had sixteen coaches packed so full that there was xo standing room ei'ther inside oi outside. The next trato liad eight coaches all well filled. It was probably the largest excursión that ever left Aon ArbOT. Everybody went who could.

"Primee Mielvael," the man who hieaded the "Plyimg Roll," in Detroit, and called himself Cbrlst, is to be triod iiii tliijs circuit conrt on a change of venaie, on a ciïarge practically o rape, the trial to eomme.nee June 14. Thie trial will probably„draw a crowd as all siwh trials do. This crime is ome that stands on the calendar of viee next to murder. ín many instantes it is fully as great a crime as murder, and deserving of as great a pu.m'Khiment. It is singular liow people can be imduced to follow aftcr these fosan pretenders. Here is a recipe that can be tried at a very liitfcle expense, and if ir proves to be a good tliiing it is wortli a great deal to the majority of families: "Amybody can freeze his own toe cream foi five minutes, and for an expemditure oí two or three cent?. If the preparatiom desired to be frozen is placed im a tin bucket or other reeeptacle, it can be readily congealed by putting it in a pail containing n weak d'iliition oí sulplwric acid and water. Imito thfe throw a handfiU of commom Glauber salte, and the resultimg cold is so great tliat a bottle of wine iraimersed in the mixture, wili be frozen solí! in a few minutes, and ice cream or ices may be quickly tind easily prepared." Tlie Daily Times lias thia item, aa3 thie anly tbi.ng to be regretted te that -tbere are myt more girls who have big brotiiiers to resent that sort of in-1 sults: "About 8 o'clock on Saturí day eveniing a young man received a practical lesson wUich it Ís to be lioped he wifll remember. Some young ladies were -wadking on S. Pourtb ave, Ann Arbor, wliien a young man totally uTuacquaintexl wilthi them followed amd addressed tíiem and proposed ao compaaiying tliem. As luck would hiaTe itt, the big brother oí one of the young ladtes was close at hand. He had observed what was ípoing on and sfeppinig up to the young man, he gave him a terrible drubbing, so severe that the recipiënt ot it fled to a friend's room for fear of receiving a second addltion of the well merited punishmejit. This should act as a' wa.rniing to tliose who insult young ladies on the etreet." Two geinerations have come and gone sioice the boys in blue marclied home from the war ended at Appomattox, and many of tlvem have since joimed tlileh1 comrades killed in battlo, as the yearly decianated ranks of those who march to the soldier's graves and 'decórate tlnem with floAVers, glve painful evidence. Every year some comrades are taken from the ramks, and some new mounds added to the ones decorated. Every year the flower-strewers are less; every year the demand for flowers greater. Wdi'en the day comes, as come it will, that there are 110 more comrades left to do thds work of gratitude, may the lovers of the principies represented in the grand old stars and striipes, wliicli they saved, perpetúate the beautifui custom, as long as its folds shall float over a free country occupied by free men.
