SALINE, - - - - MICH Clinton will soon be lighted by an electric current, her citizens having last Saturday voted to bond the town S8000 for that purpose. A. O. Miller, with his dramatic company, will present the play, "Mike White," followed by the laughable farce, "The Merry Cobbler," at Manchester to-night. At the annual school meeting held in Ann Arbor it was voted to bond the town §6000 for the purpose of huilding additions to the ward school buildings which are now crowded too full for convenience. The Ann Arbor Argus came near being but a mess of ashes and ruins a few days since. The prompt action of the employees and quick respons e of the fire company being entitled lo all credit of its present existence. A couple of sawlogs on a passing freight train, so timed ittheother day, ;is to roll off exactly at Grosvenor station, staving a hole in the depot and showing a number of people how narrowly they had escaped death.—Adrian Press. The ladies of Grass Lake were out in round numbers at school meeting Monday evening and were recognized with much courtesy by the moderator. So great was their joy over the event that they wrote and have published a card of thanks. Coffins 'ire now made of paper. Dead beats who have all their lives swindled editors out of their paper can now keep right on after death and swindle undertakers out of their paper through eternity.—Hillsdale Standard. A sad spectacle at Tecumseh, on hand reunion day, was that of Prof. W. H. Hogan—himself the last of a family of aeronauts—mourning and refusing to be comforted because the wind hlew so hard that he could not risk his neck in an ascension.—Adrian Press. Charles Bice met with a very serious and pwuful accident over at the farm Tuesday. He slid off the hay mow in the barn and came down onto a broom handle, which penetrated in the abdominal regioKS about six inches. Dr. Pyle went oyer and attended the wound, after which he was brought home here at the hotel. At present he is getting along very nicely.—Milan Leader. A young chap at Manchester named John HaskleyStarted out a few nights since for a deal of his own. Packing his clothes he goes to the barn of one neighbor, gets a horse, to another and secures a harness and tQ the third where he finds a buggy and off he goes, only to be captured early next day by deputy sheriff Wade who found the full rig driver and all near Chelsea. N. P. Husted, a well known fruit grower of Lowell, Mich., is in the city. He brought with him a branch of a peach tree loaded with over half a bushel of large peaches of the Early Michigan variety. They have caught the eye of the peach growers in this city. They are a little earlier than the Early Crawford, ripen evenly, are good keepers and taste delicious. A more exuded, nqti.ee of this peach will bo given in our next issue.—Argus. Two severe accidents happened yesterday. Jay Harvey, a lad of some lo years, was run ever by the train on which he was "catching a ride," near the Gilbert crossing, and both legs so severely injured that they had to be amputated, one near the ankle, aud one above the knee. A boy named Beadle who works at the box factory injured his right hand so badly iu some of the machinery that two fingers had to be taken off.—Ypsilanti.Commercial. Caucus. The democrats of Saline will meet in caucus at the opera house Saturday afternoon, Sept. 17th, at 2 p. m.., to elect delegates tp t]\e CQVinty gonveii- tion ca,lled at Am Apbop, Sept. 21st. School Notes Sunday Trains on the Toledo, Ann Arbor & North Michigan Ry. The 1., A. A. & N. M. Ry. are now running two Sunday traius each way between Toledo and Owosso. This service is put on for the purpose of accommodating its patrons who desire to visit friends at various points On the line and cannot do so during the week. It will also enable people living at small stations to attend church at the larger ones or to spend the day at Whi.tmore or Zuke Lakes and return same day. Special low rates are made to the Lakes and to all other stations. P.ne fare for the round trip. 49,. ' \y." H: ^BRffSOT, Q- P- A- May "V. Hubd, Editor. To Oue Readers:—Last week the members of the Saline High School decided to continue this year the publication of a School Column in the Observes. The editor of said paper having kindly given his consent and space in his paper, providing we fill it with something. The editor of this School Column will endeavor to publish items concerning the doings of the teachers and pupils, which may be of interest to the readers of the Observer. It is hoped the few items of this week will be agreeable to. all. Miss Mattie Schaffer. class of '92,was a chapel visitor one morning last week. The Caesar class consists of one member this year. Hope he will master Caesar. The senior class has lost another member, Miss May L. Cody having entered the high school at Ann Arbor Monday. What was the trouble with the Geometry class • Monday. The professor says it was "Monday Morning" but the class think it was the proposition. Of course it was. Miss Linnie Fosdick, class of :92, and Miss Miniue Davidson attended chap'el exercises last Friday morning. Miss Kate Burkhart is entertaining her cousin, Miss LucyBuhler. The Misses Myra Forbes and Milvina Schroen entered the high school Monday. Mr. Will Collum gave the high school a call Tuesday. The members of the Chemistry class are learning the art of dishwashing. For beginners they are doing nicely. The Banner room for September is the First Primary. The largest class in the high school is the Physiology class consisting of twenty-three members. Miss Schlee's reading class are posting themselves in current history by reading a very popular newspaper, The Week's Current. Again the familiar sound of the school bell is heard calling us to our rooms of study. Miss Anna Fellows, Miss Purnell DaPuy and Dorance Kanousc have commenced courses in the high school this year. It is quite evident the freshmen thought "First come, first served," when they took possession of the seats in the rear of the room. The next thing is to keep them. The room which shows the most change since vacation is the chemical 1 iboratory. The tables have been painted, and each supplied with a very line set of reagent'bottles; much valuable working apparatus has been added, and the room arranged to accomodate a cliiss of fifteen. The Greatest Natural Bridge. You all know of the Natural Bridge in Virginia; and perhaps have heard how the first and greatest President of the United States, in the athletic vigor of his youth, climbed up and carved his name high on its cliff. A very beautiful and picturesque spot it is, too; but many of them would not begiu to make one of the Natural Bridge of which I am going to tell you—one in the western edge of the Tonto Basin, Arizona, in the same general region as Montezuma's Well and Castle; but it is even less known. The Natural Bridge of Pine Creek, Arizona, is to the world's natural bridges what the Grand Canon of tho Colorado is to the world's chasms—the greatest, the grandest, the most bewildering. It is truly entitled to rank with the great na'tural wonders of the earth—as the Natural Bridge in Virginia, is not. Mo photograph ca'i give more than a hint of its majesty; no combination of photographs more than hint?.—St. Nicholas. NEW YORK SUITED HIM- Sow an Old Man with, a Bottle filled a Hollow Spot. It was on a Fifth avenue car coming down town, says the N. Y. Herald, a little old man with a grey goatee, which was notched and haggled as if rats had been frisking with it, got on at the Grand Central, and soon after the car emerged from the tunnel he said to the man on his left: "I'spose thar hain't no law in this town agin a feller feelin1 thirsty?" "Oh! no! no!" was the reply. "New York has very broad and liberal ideas on all matters." "That's good. Any law agin a feller carryin' a hottle around in his pocket?" "Never heard of any. Ji you have a botsle in your pocket you need not fear being disturbed." "That's good! That's the way I like to find a town!" exclaimed the old man with a good deal of feeling. "Would it be agin the law to take a nip here on the car?" "Not at all, sir. If I wanted to take a nip I should do it." "You would, eh? Wouldn't make any difference whether it was cold tea or whisky?" "Not a bit. We are very liberal here." "This is whisky," continued the old man as he felt "for the bottle in his coat tail pocket. "I brung it along in case of goneness. I feel a holler spot since I left the depot, and I kinder guess I'd better fill it up." "Certainly, certainly." "I'll kinder scrooch behind you, if you don't mind. Them wimmin' is lookin' at me, and may be I hadn't orter be too bold-faced about it." • jerooch away, and take your time f'joutit." The old man scrooched and gurgled, and then gurgled and scrooched and when ho slewed around on his seat again it was to grin and remark: "The holler has been filled, and I'll he gosh durned if I don't feel like a new man. Powerful glad 1 am I met you. I was kinder skeery about things till you told me they was all right." "I told you we had very broad ideas on such matters." "So you did, and I'm obleeged. If I were to home I'd have had to go down behind the tannery to do that. Broad ideas! You bet you hev! I like 'em. They jest fit me. If thar's anythin' nicer'n sittin' on a hoss car and fillin' up holler spots without feel- in' sneaky about it I'd like to know what it is! I'd offer you a nip but I accidentally spit in the bottle while I was gurglin', and you may be one of the pertickler kind. It's all right, though—see you agin before I go home and treat to anything you want." Things TJseful to Know. Bathing the chest in cold water and rubbing it vigorously every morning will help develop and strengthen it. If a carpet has grown dingy and soiled take a pail half full of hot water, put in a tablespoonful of ammonia, give the carpet a good scrubbing with a new scrub-brush and it will be greatly improved. A very good tonic for the skin is made of two ounces of Cologne water, camphor tincture one ounce, benzoin tincture one-half ounce. A few drops of this mixture may he put into the wash-bowl when bathing the face. For the earache.get 5 cents' worth oi dried arnica flowers and put them into small bags; take a pint of whisky and keep it heated on the stove; dip the bags of arnica flowers into the hot whisky and lay iheni over the ear. As soon as tho. steai& slops coming from oue bag change it for another hot one. —Good Housekeeping. Princess YoussoupoH has an oriental pearl which is unique for the beauty of its color. In lb'20 this pearl was sold by Georgians of Calais to Philip IV. of Spain for 30,000 ducats. Today it is valued at £45.0J0. The Trade in Old Shoes. THE STORE 1892 a:o-ca_ 3©3 What It Means-What It Contains For Fortunate Purchasers IT MEANS—We must sell one-half more Cloaks this fall than last. IT MEANS—We must sell twice as many Cloaks as the rest of county put together. IT MEANS—That were all the Cloak Stock of the county combined they would fall far short of onr Magnificent Stock in Variety, Quality, Quantity and Prices. IT MEANS—PErCES that will sell this enormous aggregations of Cloaks. Prices that will pack our Cloak Department from Monday morning until Saturday night the balance of the season. Can this "be done? Will Prices do it? Can this Enormous. Stock be sold in one season is what everyone is asking We say it can. It must bo sold. Prices will do it. MACK & SCHMID Baby, baby, baby, as quick as a wink, before they think, is the way we take them at Waterman's Photo gallevv. He Won Her. From the N. Y. Press. "She has promised to marry you, has she? Did she accept you right off?" "O no. IJiad to propose to her four times." "Four times! Gracious, but you wevt pet-serving! What did she say the first time?"' "She said if there wasn't another man in the world but me, she wouldn't marry me." "That was pretty strong. What did sshe say the second time?"' "She said she liked mo pretty well but she could not think of marrying me, for she might see somebody else that she would like better." "Humph! And the third time?'' "The third time she asked me if I Wanted to tease the life out of her." "Ha! ha! ha! And tho fourth time?"' "Oh, the fourth time she said if I insisted upon it she supposed she would have to say yes." There is a large aud growing demand in New York for second-hand shoes. All along 7th avenue there are dealers who make a specialty of old shoes. The men usually have stalls in cellars. Their wares embrace shoes of all sorts, from the baby's tiny slipper to the big. stiff brogans of the laborer. "We get our shoes," said one of them recently, "from all sorts of places. I Usually make a couple of trips a week myself to a lot of stylish flats in the upper part of the city. I collect all the old shoes I am able to buy. What do I give? Oh, very little, of course; I -usually pay 40 cents or so for a pair of $5 shoes, but they must be in good shape to win such a price, for, you know, we do not get much more than twice that sum when we retail them again over the counter." "Who sells shoes *to you?" "You would be surprised if you saw the fine, swell fellows that have to put up their shoes occasionally to help keep up appearances. We take the shoes, black them up, repair them and then offer them for sale." "Who buys them?" "All classes. Yes, we have nice, prosperous people who wear secondhand shoes and think- nothing of it. Then there is a class of you ng fellows in New York who have expensive tastes and small capital. They come to us, pick out a good-looking patent leather shoe, pay 75 cents o-r so for it and go away rejoicing. They go home, put them on and, then, who cau tell the difference?"—JVr.
