Amongst the various devices to make a penny on the 4th, we noticed a wheel of fortune, "fis a pity that any of our citizens should engago in such a scheme to rob the visitors who came to town to help celebrate. About every other house-keeper in the village is on the look-out for a hired girl. The article sterns to be in good demand and the supply limited. Sanilac Jeffersonian. If they could only be turned out by machinery what a blessing it would be.

The exhllerating and brutalizing effects of apple jack was beautifully illustrated ou our streets last Monday afternoon by two worthies from the neighboring township of Lynn. If the parties themselves -were made to bear the consequence of their own folly, there would not be much reason to lind fault, but when poor dumb brutes are lashed and driven through our streets at a furious gait, endanger ing the lives of our citizens, it is time Justice was after the miscreants. The Rawson Reapers and Mowers, handled by F. S. Poole are the lightest and strongest machine in the market. The mower is the easiest managed machine in the trade, and the one best adapted to all conditions of grass and land. In the improved reaper for the season of 1882, is presented 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 grcatent care is exercised in the manufacture of these machines and we are confident that they are just what the American Farm ts want, and without which they cannot afford to work their land.

F0URTH0F JULY. 3, OOO People lu Town Grand Success. liervbody Departs well pleased with the rroececliifa. , Never, has Brockway Centre been visited by such a crowd of people as were hero on Tuesday last to witness the celebration of the 100th anniver sary of our country's freedom. The day before the skies were loaded with clouds and it hardly seemed possible that wo could escape one of the all day rains that have become so common in '82. The morning broke clear and bright, and at an early hour tho coru mittea were hard at work decorating: Thero were abundant indications aS an early hour of what the attendance would be, and it more than met the expectation of any one. From nine o'clock until twelve, long lines of farmers vehicles were cou tantly in sight on all roads leading to Rrockway Centre. The day was opened by a salute of 88 guns. The procession was hoaded by the band, and the music rendered by them through the day done a great deal to enliven and they have the thanks of the committee for the able manner in which they conducted their selections. Next came the call tl'umpians, which, taking them alto gether, were good. The company of platform dancers took the prize. The repieentation of the two Indians were well gotten up, and we will say this much, had they the required number they would certainly have carried off the cake. The sports of the day passed of? sat isfactory and the following are the prizes awarded: OAME3. Standing jump, first, Henry Russell; second, W. W. Johnson.

On motion of T. llenson three rousing cheers rent the air for the committee of arrangements who worked so faith fully and manfully in order to make it enjoyable for those present; for th merchants and others who contributed so liberally toward the celebration and also lor the prosperity of Brock way Centre. Ever) thing passed off pleasantly and satisfactory and in ye-irs to come it will be remembered as an enjoyable event of the past. Best Lawns for 10 cents per yard at C. E. ItosweH's.

Tho object of the meeting was to trans fer money from the contingent fund to the road fund. Moved bv Sim coe Lutes supported by II. Pcarco that there bo four hundred dollars appropriated out of the contingent fund to build a brirtgo across Mill creek between Seo 15 and 22, which was carried. No money to be paid until paid bridge is completed. A good deal of excitement was created at the meeting. Our village had a big time on the 4th. 3fany thousand from the country and neighboring villages came in to share in the fun, throng ing our streets from morning till night. The various amusements furnished by those having manage rient gave vent to tho gushing pat riotism of both old and young, while ample provision was 'made to satisfy the wants of any kind of stomach. There was some tall grumbling done by a few thirsty fouls, in conse quence of tho bars of the hotels be ing ordered closed by tho Good Templars, although 'tis said a little tli? pr vitm tff o'lrod mit. "Uewaro of the widders." Sam Wellcr. Messrs Hayes and Walker, two amorous widdowcrs from near Sharp's comers appeared beforo Spuire Dutlio last Monday to have a little dnheimy settled between them in regard to a fair widdow of that neighborhood. It seems J he aitec tions of both, by some unaccounta ble trick of Cupid flowed out in the same channel and centered upon the widow's heart. Mr Hayes being the younger and an exhorter to boot, and probably a little smoother ton gned, got the advantage of hs rival and captured the citadel, and was no doubt, basking in the sunshine of requited affection, which rather rtirrod up the green-eyed monster in tho breast of his less fortunate rival. Be that as it may, on one of his visits to the widow's premises Hayes caught the koii of Mr Walker taking the nutts off hi buggy wheels. This with some other ly depredations committed round the widow's house and outhouse looked very much as if Walker was having his revenge in that line. $15 healed the breach.
