Publishers Observer:—Yours of the oth inst. received and if in reply I can write anything of interest to your readers about the far Northwest I will be glad to do so. First I suppose you wish to knowof the country. Eastern Washington I know nothing of except what I saw as we came through on the cars, and that was principally sage brush and sand, but of course, as usual, the railroad runs through the worst part of the country and the most of the Same old story. Henry Cash, of country is fine for wheat and grazing Brooklyn, was holding a revolver, the thing went off and put a hole through Cash's hand. The Michigan Egg Co., Chelsea, has so far pickled nearly 100,000 dozen of eggs, while Steger & Buman have several vats filled, and will probably put in 30,000 dozen.—Standard. A runaway horse took to the sidewalk at Ann Arbor last week and succeeded in demolishing a show case and considerable merchandise set out in front of stores. A slugging match, of real Sullivan- Kilrain style, was ODe of the features of the university field day exercises at Ann Arbor last Week. This may be good exercise for some of the students but it don't help the fair name of the TJ. ofM. The university faculty would not modify their verdict against the five sophomore abductors, and they must bid good bye to Michigan university for at least one year. This is doubtless a severe punishment but may have a wholesome effect in future. Mayor Nathan Alverd got mad, ordered Ms paper stopped and paid Ms account, §7.25. Now please, some other fellow get mad.—Hillsdale Leader. . The Press has one subscriber—Old Procrastination—who is away back. We don't want him to get stopping mad, but just paying mad.—Adrian Press. Ditto here Chelsea Standard: The MicMgan Central people have an '"elephant" on their hands in this place in the shape of a sink hole, which is situated near Chas. Grant's house. Tho two main tracks have been built for years and are all O. K., but the new side trade continually sinks. So far, hundreds of loads of gravel have been dumped there, the only result being the raising of Grant's land some ten feet iu one spot. Work will bo continued on it tm- til bottom is reach, A dog-show chap wl;o was last week in Teeumseh, making arrangements for an exhibition of trained canines, is in grief and a couple of dogs short. It ap- j)ears that the canines, who will hereafter do no more funny business, took a little stroll out around, and finally struck the Peter R. Adams farm where finding a flock of sheep, they decided to sample the mutton. While thus engaged they got in the way of a couple of stray bullets and death claimed them for his'n.—Press. Courier: There were a large number of people at the M. C. station Sunday to see the new •■flyer," the train that makes the distance between New York city and Chicago in 23 hours. The train is a beauty, and has every coin- fort that can be thought of in connection with traveling. The buffet car has a library, barber shop and smoking Obituary. purposes. After passing through the Cascades and getting onto the Pacific slope you strike a generally level country, except around the sound and the banks of the Columbia, mostly covered with timber but broken by an occasional prairie. As a general rule the prairies are not good for anything excepting pasture, being very gravelly and drying out badly during our dry summers. The timber and bottom lands are of the best, and where anyone has "sand" and backbone enough to go ahead and clear it up he can have a garden of Eden of Ms 'own. You will find old settlers all through the country, some of them having been here forty years or more. As a rule they will not have more than a few acres cleared but they can make a better living off from ten acres here than they can from 160 in Michigan. They raise wheat, oats, hops and all kinds of small fruits. Corn does not do well on account of our cool evenings. The climate during the summer is grand, nearly every day being bright and clear and it is a rare thing to have the thermometor register above 90 degrees. About 6 o'clock a cool breeze sets in from the ocean and an overcoat is needed neai'ly every evening. Not much rain during the summer but very heavy dews. The winters are not so pleasant; plenty bf rain, and last winter a considerable snow. It was far different from the year before, for when I reached here in Feb., 1889, flowers were in bloom in the dooryards. Centralia is a beautifully situated town on the main line ofthe Northern Pacific K. R., 50 miles from Tacoma and 90 from Portland. It has grown from a town of 1,200 inhabitants to one of 3,500 during the fifteen months I have been here. We are assured of one new railroad tMs summer (to Gray's Harbor) and we may get more, as there are three or four surveying i parties here now. but who, and what they are working for no oneknowsonly themselves. We have eight saw mills, three shingle mills, two brick yards, planing mill, sash and door factory, bottling works now building, four churches and three others soon to be built, live hotels, one of them one of the finest in western Washington, two banks, two weekly j>apers aud one daily paper, an opera house, two school houses, one four rooms and one of six; also the Baptist Seminary for western Washington and British Columbia, which is h. fine building standing on a sightly eminence overlooking the town. There are also plenty of saloons and a great deal of gambling but the people as a rule are quiet and peaceable and a person that comes west expecting to see every man he meets with a six-' shooter and a. bowie knife in his belt Mrs. Sarah Aulls HotchMn was born in Wheeler, Steuben Co., N. Y., June 3,1814 and died May 21,1890. She was married to A. H. Hotchkin Sep, 17, 1833. They came to MicMgan in 1839 and settled in the town of Lodi, Washtenaw Co., where they lived about 20 years. In 1860 they removed to York where they lived about the same length of time. Then they removed.to Saline where they remained until her death. She was the daughter of Thomas Aulls, esq., of Wheeler, N. Y., and was the youngest of a family of seven children. She lived to be the oldest in years of the family and was the last to die. In early life she made a profession of re- ligeon connecting with the Congregational church of Prattsburg, soon changing her relation to the Presbyterian church of Wheeler, coming to MicMgan she connected with the Lodi church, afterwards with Saline Presbyterian church with wMch she remained until her death. She was the mother of five cMldren, four of whom, two sonsand two daughters,survive her. One son died at the age of- ten years. ' She has suffered from heart and lung disease for many, years and has for some years been quite feeble. During the past winter she steadily failed until a little over three weeks ago when she was taken sick in bed with what proved to be her last illness. Through it all she has shown exemplary fortitude and resignation, always thinking of others before herself and seeming willing and ready for the Master's call. Com.

If taken in sufficient time to thoroughly eradicate such poison, it tever fails. 38 room, the parlor and sleeping cars are will be happily disappointed. Char marvels of excellence, tho dining ear has all the appointments of a first class st,.eet raiiway and electric lights. The hotel: the conductor wears kid gloves, and the train employees are all in fine blue uniforms. It only costs §2.50 extra to go from Ann Arbor to Chicago on tMs train, and the mileage tickets are not recognized, but a first-class ticket must be shown before anyone is allowed j ters have been granted for water works, surrounding country is "very good for farming and there are inexaustable coal fields near, as well as a large supply of Fir and Ceder for timber .and shingles. As for chances in the west, I will say there are a lot of them, hut what is to board the traveling palace. It quite j nmiea most is men with capital who anmhilates space between the eastern wm come here aiid invest in manufac- and western metropolises. Two emigrant wagons drove up in front of the Ralph C. Whiting farm last Sunday at noon, A family consisting of father, mother and three children, the oldest being a lad of 15 years of age, four horses, turned them loose to graze, then proceeded to tight a fire and make their toilets and prepare a picnic dinner. They volunteered the information that just five weeks ago they crossed the Missouri river, having driven all the way from Nebraska, losing* a valuable horse on the way which they had to replace and much rainy weather to contend with. They inquired for Charles Marriatfs family, or Pittsfield, claiming he was tMs man's brother and said nineteen years ago they lived in Ypsilanti, proving their assertions by inquiring about various personages. It was a novel sight, carrying one back in imagination fifty ■years.—Democrat. turiug enterprises. For such as those there is a good opening and sure profits. One tiling that seems strange to an eastern man is so many real estate offices, there being fully a dozen in town. There have been fortunes made tlighted, unhitched the j in a lew months on real estate and there aro just as good chances now as ever. To sum .the whole thing up I think there are better chances in the west than in an older country, but people who come out here expecting to find money growing on hushes will he apt to soon take a "tie pass" for home, but anyone whoiswillingto rustle.come ahead, there is lots of room for you. I will send you some of our home papers which you mil find filled up principally with real estateadvertisements. TMs must be a great country for printers, their pockets must fill-up in the same ratio. The Observer is a welcome visitor every Week and all of us Saline boys anxiously await its coming. There is quite a colony of us here now. We were all invited out to dinner a few days ago and on counting up there ware nine of us, all formerly from Saline. ■—■ I will bring tMs rambling letter to a Notice of Attachment.
