Well Trained Horses.
The training of the sorrel team of
the fire department showed itself in
an accident that occurred to them
shortly after dinner to-day. On turning the corner at Washington and
Congress streets, one of the horses
slipped on a wet spot on the pavement, falling down at the same time
throwing the other horse. Instead of
becoming wildly excited, as most
horses would, the horses npon regaining their feet, just drew themselves
away from the wheels and stood until
they were unhitched. No damage was
done except to the wagon pole which
was broken.—Ypsilanti Daily Press.
His Pure Food Views.
Dr. V. C. "Vaughan, of the medical
department of tbe U. of M., was called
to Washington, D. C , Friday, to give
his views on the Pure Food bill now
before Congress. He advocates the
appointment of a commission of five
experts to pass upon the standards for
pure food and Chairman Hepburn 'has
asked tbe doctor to prepare an amendment to the bill to be considered by
the committee. This is only another
one of the many cases where a half
dozen new offices are created with big*
salaries added thus increasing general
taxation to that amount.
Someone sent to the Detroit papers
an article to the effect that Ypsilanti
is likely to lose the Hay & Todd Underwear factory, but the Ypsilanti people seem to deny this. The report was
that Ann Arbor would be benefitted by
the change but the knitting machines
will be removed to Detroit owing to
the scarcity of help, otherwise the factory at Ypsilanti will not be change.

The Ann Arbor Times says that the
village taxes of Chelsea have heretofore been higher than the Ann Arbor
taxes but this year it will be reduced
quarter per cent, the high taxes are
the result of Glazier rule.

Earth the Best Fortification..
Military engineers are practically
unanimous in acknowledging that'for
fortification no material is better than
$orth. In places where clay is not ob-
tSioaWe, as on the sea-shore, sand Is
collected into bags, and these are used
to build, up defences. In such a fortification the shots from the enemy's
guns sink without doing damage,
while shells explode harmlessly.
The Yellow Fever Germ
has recently been discovered. It bears
a close resemblance to the malaria
germ. To free the system from disease germs, the most effective remedy
is Dr. King's New Life Pills. Guaranteed to cure all diseases due to malaria
