Wagon, roads are rough at present. Bluebirds and robins reported here last week. Country people are getting ready for spring work. A flock of wild geese was seen coming north to-day. Last week three muskrats were seen in a pond near the junction. Wheat and grass in central Pittsfield looks well considering the freezing weather. Died, of consumption, Tuesday, 24th of February, 1891, at the residence of Jacob Aray, in Pittsfield, Silas Thornton, in the 2oth year of his age. The funeral services were held in Ypsilanti and the remains were interred in the family lot in Highland cemetery. Death is no respecter of person.
