In reply to inquiries, Attorney-General Taggart states that clersrymen and ministers need not pay 25 cents to county clerks when filing certificates of marriage. One full and explioit affidavit, and license, for which the clerk receives 50 cents, will euffice for both contracting parties. These documenta may be made out by any authorized person, but county clerks should be very careful to learn the authority of auch deputies and to issue licenses only to those who have full knowledge of facts to be set forth in the affidavit. The foüowing, from the Adrián Times, should be re eehoed until the custom is abolished: The publication of cards of thanks by the surviving relatives of people deceased, is, we are glad to state, rapidly going out of fashion. How or where the noxious custom originated, nobody knows, but certaic it is, it cannot too quickly give up the ghost. People would be worse than heathens if they were not always grateful for kindness, but the publication of formal thanks is a piece of lip service and foolishneas whioh ought not to be obtruded on the public gaze. Matters in the Sorg defalcation have now assumed such a condition that the city will undoubtedly recover every dollar.

Joseph Murray, of the First ward, died at the residence of his parents, Sunday, of consumption, nsrH 17 years, 7 months and 28 days. Deceased was employed in the press-room of The Register, up to within a few months before his death, Dut on account of failing health was compelled to give up his situation. He was a honest and industrious young man, and eaves many friends who mourn his death, and none feel his loss more than his late issociates in this office. The funeral was held in St. Thomas' church, Wednesday morning, which was attended by a large lumber of relatives and friends. Rev. Fr. i'ierle preached the sermón. There is no better index to the permanent growth of a city than are the cheap cottages, the hoiru s of the laboring men, which are springing up as by magie on all of Lansing's beautiful streets. Permanent rosperity is sure to follow successful manufacturing institutions, and Ann-Arbor has many such. Within the past few days nany visitors from other parts of the state ïave been in the city, and their favorable and even enthusiastic comments on the city's growth have been more than flatterng. There is no earthly reason why the oom should not continue, as it is not one .lased on fallacious reasons or on fictitious robable future improvement?, but the slow and steady growth bom of true increase in values and permanent prosperity.
