Judge Joslyn told a new story, Monay. He said that at one time there ved in Ypsilanti a man by the name f Record, who had eleven children and hese children he had giveu numerical ames, One Record, Two Record, Three lecord and so on to Eleven Record. This brings to ruind the fact that when the fire bell rang last Satrday night, a little four year ld girl living in the first ward lisened intently to the ringing of the bell or a moment and then brightening up aid: " didn't ring the Oneth ward." Uut Judge Joslyn's story about names s not the only one current here. A amily formerly resided in this city amed Colby which had four children whose names were Rose, Branch, Vine nd Leaf. The first named was a daughter and the other sons. # The falling leaves make the matter f our shade tree one of importance to ur readeis. GilbertBliss told the AitGUS Monday, that he and his neighbors ïad been digging around their shade rees looseningupthe eartn and waterng the trees well, till the ground beame tlioroughly saturated. He said hat this caused the drying up of ihe eaves to cease and thought it was the iroper remedy to be appiled. Mr. Peters, who works at the Centra' Vlills, set out sixteen rnaple trees. Some time after he planted them he ïoticed that they were infested with borers, that the leaves were drying up up and beginiiing to f all. He got some paint. well saturated with turpentine and painted the trees, froai two feet above the ground to above where the )orers were at work. 'The borers stopped work and the trees were saved. Uapt. Manly during his speech at the pole raising last Friday evening made use of an illustration which is too good ïot to be repeated. He said that while fitting up his house on Broadway, he went into Haller's furniture store where he found a large mirror which attraqted his attention. He inquired he price and found it was more than ie feit like paying. He wanted the mirror and inquired why it cost so much. Mr. Halier told him that if it wasn't tor the tariff on glass, he could sell him the mirror for $12 less. He couldn't afford the mirror and the tariff ost Mr. Halier a sale. W. Stearns, in his speech at Milan in ouching on the wool question, spoke of he woolen goods the farmers used. The farmers he said were forty-eight per cent of the men of this country. In other words about half the people were farmers. The farmers then used half the woolen goods made in this country and half the woolen goods shipped in. They paid the enhanced price fiom the tariff. This country did not produce near the amount of wool needed to make wooleu clothing for this country and the farmers paid back to the man. ufacturerd, every cent they received f rom the tariff, granting for a moment that it benefited them a cent.
