One of them held a lan tern, another held the cat, and the third jammed a pistol Into tha cat's ear and fired shooting the man in the hand who held the cat, and the man with the 1h ntei n wa& wounded in the arm. The cat left when it saw how matters stood and that ill-feeling was being engen dered. They had been married exticily 10 ! months, and one day, when she found J it necessary to sign a paper, site wioto her maiden name in fall. "What I" he ejaculated. Oh! how foolish," eho said, "I forgot that I was mairitd." And then he jammed his handi down into his pockets and won dered if that was a reflection on his character or what, and finally conclud ed it was what. A small cyclone of the blizzard style came down upon our village last Tuesday morning nbout 0 o'cloc'c, do ing considerably damage to the furnl tiue, crockery and woman in a house on Woodward avenue. The storm spei.t its force in one spot, and the way it swored and roared was terrible in the extreme. What raised the wind (or the Devil) was, "Johnnie come marching home" with too much ton zine under his waist-coat. A young son of Anthony Welsh was left to mmd the drug store of F. C. ft;ker j-esterday for a few minutes, and, thinking it a good time to replen- I .h his pocket with cash, slipped be hind the counter and took from the drawer a " bill. He waited until j 1 red came back and then going over to W. II. Palmer's asked him to change it saying a man at the post office sent him over. Mr Palmer sus pecting there was something wrong wen' over to the post-olhce to 6ce who the iiian was, but could not find any one. On looking around he found the ownor as above stated. Sir Knight A. R. McLenagan, the Record Keeper of Pontiac Tent, is the editor of the Daily Bee, a spicy little sheet which he shoots at the Pon tiacers every evening. A Bee printer in a Maccabee Dive ought to make things hum.- Port Huron Bee Hive. His Knightship was once a resident of our villace, and was Record Keeper of Red Ribbon Club and other things. He made a very efficient "keeper," but how he pot transmogrified into the bee family i3 a mystery yet to be explained. Perhaps the business end that does the stinging has been extracted and Mac made qeeen bee, accounts for it. That Hive will hum and swarm too. The Rawson Reapers and Mowers, handled by F S. Poole are the lightest and strongest machine in tko market. The mower is the easiest managed machine in the trade, and the one best adapied to all conditions ot grass and land. In the improved reaper for the .season of 1SS2. is prosented a model machine tried in all its paits and found wanting in none. Lightest draft and stronge as it is possible to make it in all parts subjected to severe or steady strain. The greatest caro is exercised in the manufacture of these machines and we are confident that they are just what the American Farmers want, and without which ihy .innot aff rd to work their bm l.

Everyone per formed their part well and those pres ent were more than pleased with the exercises of the evening. Rev. Dr. Flower, of Marine City, delivered an eloquent and masterly address on "The Origin und Progress of Masonry," from the time of Adam until the present, including Abraham and Moses, Hiram King of Tyre, Solomon King of Israel, King David, St John the Baptist, St John the Evanvelist, and down to Geo Washhigton the father of our country aud our my it red President James A. Garfield who were all eminent patrons of Masonry as well as the best men the country ever knew. The vocal and Instrumental music rendered by the Brockway choir, C. W. Stratton, lead er, was splendid. Their selections were rendered with taste and skill and entitled them to the applause they re ceived. This choir have always stood high, and they certainly on this occa sion added another leaf to their wreath The proceeds of the evening were Srtl. j A focial time was had Tuesday even ing at which 815 whs realized.
