LOT OF NICE TILE, ALL SIZES, FOR SALE Saline Artificial Stone Co. The Attractiveness of a Retail Store Depends largely on the lighting installation. ELECTRIC LIGHT is the perfect illuminant for store lighting worth its cost in advertising value only. Let us figure with you, Washtenaw Light & Power Co. Ypsilanti, Michigan "Pittsburgh Perfect" Fences The Best Because ^1. Staysfare Electrically Welpled to tho strands formipg a perfect union ftnd an amalgamation wjtb the strands not found in any other tepee. 2. All stay wires are made as heavy as intermediate line wires. A fence, like a chain, is only as strong as the lightest material in it. Think this over carefully. 3. No wraps to get loose, to hold moisture and cause rust. 4. No projections to injure stock or tear wool from sheep. 5 Stronger at the joints than any other fence. Welded together with electricity. -6. Guaranteed that the wire is not injured at the joints. 7. Guaranteed adjustable to uneven ground* 8. Guaranteed that stays will not separate from joints. 9. Guaranteed all right in every particular. 10. Made by the most modern process and on the latest improved machinery, 11. Most of the weak points in other fences are on account of the way he stays are fastened. Our stavs are amalgaraatdd with the strands by means of electricity and the strength of the feuce increased a hundredfold over the strength of a fence where the stays ar<>->wrapped or clamped on the strands. You may pay more money for other fences but you cannot get as good a r fence as "Pittsburgh Perfect." F. D. Ford, Agent ■SB EIGHB0RH00D NEWS « Happenings of Interest Gathered for the "Benefit of Oar Headers. Touch of Human Interest. Just two little boys. They were talking of life and death, but it was a one act play which was of human interest in which pathos and humor mixed. Little Frank Malleaux had a birthday this week. Now Frank has been very ill and his feet wandered a long way down into the valley, but he is getting well now. For this birthday various things were sent the boy, but his chum, little John Breaky, came in person and asked to see Frank. So the well boy went into the room of the sick boy, the first playmate the latter had seen for many weeks. "Hello," said the well boy. "Hello," said the sick boy. And then they looked at each other for a time, till John made his presentation speech. "I have brought you a present of a top, Frank, and I hope you will soon be well enough to spin it on the sidewalk. I have been aw.ful worried about you, Frank, and every day i expected to hear you was dead. The top cost five cents." The rather gloomy allusion to his previous state of health couldn't dim the joy of Frank in the new five cent top and the boys had a happy few minutes planning their spring campaign of play to begin as soon as the sick boy is well enough.—Ann Arbor News-Argus. Only An Incident. A show company, a girljia f rat pin— this combination created much excitement for a short time. Last Saturday evening when the curtain at the Whitney theater went down after the last act of the "College Widow," the company disbanded, a part going to New York to join another company. In the company was a little girl who wore the frat pin of a prominent college man—was engaged to him, no doubt. At the end of the performance all the old costumes were packed in trunks to be shipped to a theatrical costumer. Upon arriving at the hotel the maiden discovered that the precious frat pin was missing. With tears in here eyes and terror in her heart she started for the theater. AU the trunks had to be opened and searched, but no pin was found. The theater was searched but no pin greeted the eager eyes. Yet weeping, the girl returned to the hotel where she encountered a student wearing a pin of the same frat, who was awaiting her return. A few minutes later they started out for a supper and as she put on her coat the quick eye of the student detected the well known Greek letter pin, shining underneath the lapel. The pin was safely fastened where she had placed it before going to the theater.—Ann Arbor Times. Chief of Police Apfel received a letter from a former Ann Arbor man, now in Cleveland, Ohio, stating that Louis Betz, who was supposed to have been drowned seventeen years ago, had been seen by him in Cleveland. The report in the letter will be investigated by Betz's relatives.—Ann Arbor Times. The grist mill, saw mill, and cider null at River Raisin station, owned by Mrs. Charles Dresselhouse, were struck by lightning one night last week and burned to the ground. A bridge close by also took fire, but this was extinguished before much damage was done.—Chelsea Standard Herald. The American Express Company feels too poor to continue paying a drayman to take packages to and from tbe trains and has taken the ofiice away from Fred Steinkohl and given it to Mr. Hamm, the Lake Shore station agent. Who wants to go trapesing to the depot to do express business? But the monopoly has its way. —Manchester Enterprise. Was Puzzled. A great calico sale is on in Milan. A traveling salesman'/Svhose wares took him to our dry goods stores the other day, was puzzled when he saw the amount of calico that was being bought. He came to The Leader office to inquire if this was a calico town, adding to his query, "it is one of the most progressive and thrifty looking places of its size I have found on the map." "No, sir," said the editor. "No better dressed women can be found in Michigan than you will see upon the stpeets gf Milan. But w§'ll let you 'into a secret,' The Pythian Sisters are going tp gjve a calico dance at their hall on the evening of March 27, and all the ladies are expected to wear calico dresses, and the men, instead of donning their dress suits, must wear overalls—and we presume something more."—Milan Leader. Parents Held Responsible. New York has adopted very stringent rules for the preservation of the health of school children, one of the latest developments being the rule that parents who do not keep their children in good health shall be prosecuted. This seems a little autocratic at first glance, but those who have studied the subject will readily understand that it is only common justice, as many parents are utterly indifferent as to the health of their children, exposing them unnecessarily, clothing them inadequately and not providing good food for them, even when their means allow.
