Several fields of corn in the vicinity of Grass Lake have been cut, due to its rapid maturity on accouLt of the dry hot weather. Stockholders of the new bank at Ann Arbor, known as the State Security bank, met last week and elected a hoard of directors and other officers. A. L. Noble was selected as its president. The mail facilities of Grass Lake west are poor. The Day express takes a mail west at ten o'clock solar time, and not until seven in the evening does another mail go in that direction. It is to be hoped that Postmaster Cooper will he able to induce the postal authorities to attach a postal car to the 11 a. m. express.—Grass Lake News. Brothel* you are indeed to be pitied, but what have you to say of us poor mortalsat Saline who only have a west mail once in twenty-four hours, that*being at ten o'clock each forenoon. "Pnere is time enough between mail 'trains for half the continent to be sickened and die with cholera before we would get the news. A few days ago Frankie Swindc and Irving Jacobs captured a mamma quail, nest, eggs and all, and brought their captive and the spoils home, where they tried to persuade the quail to finish her job of hatching the eggs; this she refused point blank to do, and in the face of all their threats she never quailed. This left the boys in a dilemma. But just leave Young America alone for getting out of a scrape. Frank was the owner of abantam hen that had long been yearning for maternal responsibilities; here was her opportunity; the eggs were placed uuder her and she just got right down to business, and in three days came oft' the nest triumphant, mothering as line a lot of cute little quails as you over sa«r.—"Milan Leader. It was quite au amusing sight last Tuesday to see three Ann Arbor young ladies who had started for South Lyon. They hired a horse and buggy and got safely Into the country a number of miles when the young lady driving was precipitated to the ground by the horse starting up from off a walk. She retained her presence of mind and held on to the reins and the horse stopped. When to guard against further accident one of the ladies led the horse, the other walked on the other side with the whip in her hand, while the third proudly sat in the buggy holding the ribbons. At last as the horse appeared to have repented of his rash act and became very quiet,the ladies re-entered the carriage and reached their destination without further excitement. Theii" return trip was without inoident.—Ann Arbor Democrat How to Make a Live Town. The following recipe for making a live town is taken from an exchange, which speaks advisedly: "Grit, push, snap, vim, energy, churches, schools, academies, morality, enterprise, harmony, cordiality, cheap property, advertising, heahlty location, talking about it, help to improve it, patronize.its merchants, Taith exhibited by good works, honest competition In business, help all public enterprises, elect, good men to office, speak well of its public-spirited cilixens, and be one them yourself.

Shop on Ann Arbor street, Council Proceedings Chance in Great iveries. It is a^^^^^Bct that some of the very giJ^^^Hr human achievements have b^HPy chance. Many among the most important discoveries in the history of mankind have been made by men who were not seeking the great truth they found. Science is the result not only of study, but of precious accidents; and this is as true of the deeds told of in history. It is an interesting study in itself,—the influence which happy blunders and unintended happenings have had upon civilization. In exploration, accident has played its important part as in invention. Some of the most valuable explorations have been made by men who had no more idea of being explorers than they had of inventing a railroad to the moon; and it is a striking fact that the first inland exploration of America, and the two most wonderful journeys iu it,were not only accidents, but the crowning misfortunes and disappointments of the men who have hoped for very different things. Exploration,intended or involuntary, has achieved not only great results to civilization, but in the doing has scored some of the highest feats of human heroism. America in particular, perhaps, has been the field of great aud remarkable journeys; but the two men who made the most astounding journeys in America—and probably in all history—are still almost unheard of among us. -They are heroes whose names are as Greek to the vast majority of Americans, albeit they are men in whom Americans particularly should take deep and admiring interest. They were Alvar Nunez Cabeza de "Vaca, the first American traveler; and Andres Docampo, the man who walked farther than any one.—C. F. Lummis, in June St. Nicholas.

Effectual instruction in patriotism through the public schools is now a subject receiving the earnest consideration of educators throughout the country. All agree that some specific plan should be adopted for education in citizenship. Some of the most eminent educators believe that while all patriotic acniversaries are fittingly observed, this plan should also include a daily ceremony of exercises about the national flag. Others as eminent fear that the daily ceremony would become at last a meaningless farm, and that the observance of the great occasions alone will better serve the purpose. Dr. W. T. Harris, United States Commissioner of Education is of the opinion that the broadest and truest patriotism must be stimulated by making the best use of special opportunities. In -.t recent interview, while the National Public School Celebration of Columbus Day was under discussion, he said:— '•I heartily indorse the idea of this celebration by the schools because I think all legitimate occasions should he used to impress on the minds of children their connection with the the history of the world. Patriotism seems to me to be an individual's feeling of substantial interest in the welfare of his nation. a We do not want any patriotism which gets in the way of the broader and more Christian sentiment of brotherly love toward all mankind. But patriotism is a more Christian sentiment than love of home, lovo of one's town, or country, or one's section. Very much of the so-called instruction in patriotism in the schools is apt to degenerate into self-glorification, or sectionalism. Our Fourth of July celebrations have too often cultivated a narrow patriotism. But this Columbian celebration is a far broader opportunity for stimulating the hotter kind of patriotism. . I am not in favor of daily exercises in the school which look toward the cultivation of patriotism by some ceremonial, because I think that a daily is apt to heccm-s unconscious habit, and a mere empty form. A yearly celebration is far more impressive than a daily celebration, and the national celebration of the fo.tt'." "Hundredth anniversary must lie still more so.

Early yesterday morning a very distingue-looking lady came down Sixteenth street, walking very fast, sa*s the Denver Sun. Upon her head six- wore a large, ■pink, funnel-shaped sun- bonnet. Her dress was so well made and fashionable that everyone had lo take two or three looks to decide whether or not she *.s-as from the country or whether she "was a city belle in disguise. She held her head down so that no one could see her face. A young man stood in ■ the doorway of the People's Bank building, and when she passed said: "Go it, bonnets!" in a tone which he didn't intend for her to hear. But she did. and in spite of herself she looked up for a second. To his consternation he itecognized her as one of the society girls way up in the social scale. She re cognized him at same time, and. covered with confusion, she darted i ato the doorway and pulled off the ob noxious headgear. "Don't you dare to IbII anyone! Call a carriage for me an-i send me home." "What on earth ?" "Papa made me," she said, nearly crying.
