—Frank Robbin of Adrian was
committed to jail Tuesday, charged
with assault with a dangerous Wea

the possession of a horse owned by
Mr. Robbin which Mr. Henning had
been using on his farm this spring
and summer. Mr. R. called for his
horse and was leading it away when
he was assaulted by Mr. H., and it
was while Robbin was defending
himself against the assault of Hen
ning, that it is charged that he fired
his revolver. Mr. Robin bears a good
reputation as a peaceable, law abid
ing citizen is a young man with a
wife and one child. When asked by
the sheriff if he was an intemperate
man, he answered that he did not use
liquor at all. Mr. Robbin was not
represented by counsel and made no
defense at the examination, and as
the offense is one not bailable by a
justice, he was committed until such
time as Judge Brown should fix and
accept bail/ Wilson and Crandall

Already there is somfe complaint of a

these shallow wells, however, is that
after a time they are likely to go dry.
Nobles county never raised a better
crop than this year. Wheat, oats,
barley and flax are not simply good
bat, as a rule, very good and corn,
though rather backward, will make a
good crop if the fall be favorable.
Crops seem to be more sure than when
the country was lirst settled and
doubtless one reason is that by this
time we understand better liow to
"farm it" than we did then. The first
settlers in a new country come expect
ing to follow just the same dourse in
farming which they followed at their
old homes but very soon they find that
chang'ed conditions call for new meth
ods. One cause for much of the fail
ure and disappointment among new
settlers is this ignorance of the many
methods required by the difference in
soil and climate.

If this be true, very many of us are

that they nave but little time to give

would pay, however, to do a little
more in this direction than we do. A
