W. railway for tbe Lake Superior region. Judge Uawes was obliged to avljourn court at this place in order to partici pate in tbe above excursion. Pleasure before business seems to be bis motto. We suppose tbe reason that young gentle man (?) unhitched his horses from tbe wagon and refused to escort a young lady home after taking ber to a picnic and paying her bis undi Tided attention, was because tbe horses were tired and the chilliness of tbe air indicated a frost I Wouldn't it be well for bim to go alone next time? It haa cost this county about five hundred dollars as expenses for two day's court at which there was no Judge to preside, because that functionary preferred being one of tbe party of Legislative bummers who went to the Up per Teninsula last Tuesday, than attending to tbe duties of bis office, for which he draws the comfortable salary of one thousand five hun dred dollars from the public treasury.

Daring the dance Leonard but in doing so received a cut on the arm. I Barratt was disarmed and Dustin Bailed into him and gave bim so severe a thrashing that probably no complaint will be made for tbe cutting. m According to previous notice, the Firemen's picnic took place at Four Mile Lake last Fri day. As the weather was all that could be de sired, a large number participated in tbe fes tivities of the occasion, which were very much enlivened by tbe presence of Ford's Cornet Band. The Narrow Gauge made several trips to tbe groundr, the " cars" being loaced to their utmost capacity with pleasure-seekers, who went for a good time, and if appearances re any criterion, they must have found what they sought. We cannot forbear to mention ! an incident of a personal nature t When the train arrived at tte depot, as many as could crowded noon Burdick's dray and rode np town. Just as they reached Mam street and were turning the corner by the Dyckman House, one of the ladies lost her foot-hold and was thrown some distance on tbe ground, amid roara of laughter from the by-standers. Fortunately she escaped injury, and aeemed to enjoy it as much as anyone. The day's sports terminated with a dance at Town nail in the evening, which was well at tended and a very pleasant affair. Our Gobleville correspondent says : In the death of Mrs. S. A. Unison, wife of Dr. A. E. Bubson, our village has met with a serious loss. Young and gifted, she possessed the power of doing great good and this was faithfully used Tbe funeral serviced were held at the new church, for tbe erection of which none had done more than tbe deceased. Loving hands, eager to show their respect, trimmed the church with evergreens and adorned it with tlowere. Her life had been for Christ, her death was that of a christian. We mourn her only as absent from us. not as lost to us." A new and admirable plan has been devised, whereby people of an economical turn of mind can have all the credit and social distinction of having spent a summer at Newport, Saratoga, or some other expensive and fashionable summer-resort, at a moderate coat. They go down into Indiana or Michigan and take cheap board at a farm bouse ; then for to each secure the insertion of two such items as the following in an Eastern society paper: "The Hon. J. Washington Swizzleback. one of Chicago's prominent citizens, bid infernally beautiful wife, and bis three lovely and accomplished daughters, Misses Nettie, Uettie, and Pettie Swizzleback, occupy a palatial suite of apart ments at tbe Grand Union Hotel. Col. Swiz zleback returns to Chicago immediately to at tend to bid immense business operations." " Among the ladies most admired at the Grand Union hop last night were the exquisitely -handsome and witty wife and daughters of Gen. J, W. Swizzleback, a millionaire resident of Chi cago. Their dresses, models of beauty and taste, were as follows : (Twenty lines of mil linery here.) It is rumored that Miss Pettie Swizzleback, an imperial brunette, will next year espouse a wealthy Russian count, one of tbe lions of tbe social season." Then they get 100 copies of tbe papers, mark the items, ad dress them to their friends in Chicago, and stamp tbe wrappers and express them to Sara toga, there to be dumped in tbe Post Office. The effect is simply immense, and when tbe Swizzlebacks return from Goshen or Paw Paw, baviDg Judiciously crammed out of a 50-cent Saratoga guide-book, they inspiie tbe most awful envy in the gentle breasts of their friends and acquaintances. Chicago Tribune. NEE EE U EO(.lES. From Our Own Correspondent. An ice cream festival was held at the Masonic hall last evening, proceeds, which amounted to fifty dollars, are to apply on Elder Chick's sal ary. A. Hurlbuthaa just returned from Buffalo, N. Y., where he has been shipping sheep and hogs. He reports business fair. flowing is hindered by tbe drouth. . Tbe roads are too dry and dusty for camp meeting goers. Tbe subject most discussed at preaent in the grange and elsewhere is a system to introduce a similiarity of school books through tbe town. If tbe plan is adopted, teachers, as well aa peo ple, will have reason to be thankful. Teachers now find a new set of books in every school they take, and many of them binder the pro gress of the pupils by their own ignorance of the, series. I think there is a fair chance for the sifting of teachers, as people are inquiring who have succeeded in giving satisfaction. It Is to be devoutly hoped that some of the per sons who do nothing but hunt situations with fat salaries will find tbe places filled with ener getic, competent, worthy individuals. It is time for the people to awake in regard to school interests ; it is time teachera were sifted and the drones thrown into some other vocation ; it is time tbe children should begin to appreci ate the value of school and not spend term after term on the same lessons ; and it is fully time we ceased to change teachers every term. In fact our district school system is greatly in need of decisive measures to make tbem more renumerative for tbe time and money expend ed. Will not some one who is interested take np this subject and make some suggestion! for the general good? We clip the following from an exchange: " From his perch is an open window, last Sun day, a cynical bachelor counted ninety-nine la dles who passed the house on their way to church. Of the ninety-and-nine, all but nine wore new gowns and turned their heads to look at what the wretched and illiterate man terms tbe " bang and tbe flow " of their drapery as they went tripping along.

Pbescott asd H. P. Macfablis. From Our Own Reporter. Tbe Annual Meeting of the Almena, Bloom ingdale, Pine (J rove and Waverly S. 8. Associa tion, was made tbe occasion for a general pic nic of Sabbath Schools, and gala-day for farm ers and citizens connected with the work m this section. It came off at Pine Grove, August 1C, and was tbe largest gathering of people ever held in north-east Van Buren. The day was propitious, a warm early morning sun hav ing exhaled the rain of tbe previous day, and earth and sky yied with happy hearts to render the occasion pleasurable. When your reporter arrived, " the pale air was streaked with" ban ners of various hue, mottoes appropriate to the occasion, and about tbe neat little depot fully one thousand " early birds" had congre gated, listening to enlivening strains of maaic from the Coble Brass Band, and welcoming new delegations as tbey arrived. Goble bad tnrned out "her beauty and chivalry" uatil her streets were almost deserted ; from that beau tiful rival on tbe weBt Bloomiugdale, had come tbe largest single delegation of the day ; Almena and Waverly Union were there, full of enthusiasm for the Master's cause; and far away Glendale, with gay banners, and a large turn out, added much to the lovely and joyous scene presented. On the western bound tram came tbe Alamo Brass Band, and a host known as tbe Alamo Union Sabbath School, and short ly after Kendall put in her appearance. From this time until twelve o'clock team after team arrived, until there bad gathered in Pine Grove over 100 vehicles of various kinds but mostly lumber wagons and some 3,500 men, women and children. Capt. II. Niles was in his element that day and bore tbe honors of Marshal meekly and well. Tbe procession was organized at 10 o'clock, anxl in bis charge, and assistants from the various schools, marched to the beautiful grove west of tbe village. Kev. R. S. Dean, President of th Association, called the meet ing to order, and after music by Alamo Brans Band, and Glee Club, prayer was offered by Kev. Mr. Daniels. President read a letter from Rev. F. W. Bush, of Alamo, who was adver Used to address the meeting, regretting his in ability to be present, and introduced Rev. Geo. Donaldson. Bear Lake Mills, who, in a twenty minutes' impromptu bpeecb, fully sustained his reputation of being one of tbe readiest and most eloquent talkers in this section. His re marks were general, had mental pabulum for both old and younz. and were listened to at tentively throughout. Then came adjourn ment for dinner and social intercourse for tbe adults, and dinner and fun for tbe little folks. ''Swinging round the circle," after a feast of good things, your reporter was proud of the distinction of living in Van Buren county. It has been his fortune to meet many similar gatherings .in older and wealthier common wealths, but he baa never met a better dressed, better behaved and more intelligent gathering of old, middle-aged, young and little folks, than thronged Pine Grove on this occasion. The hour band pointed to nearly two o'clock when the President called the vast throng from "refreshment to labor." It was tbe annual meeting and officers for tbe ensuing year were to be elected. The following are the happy xnon : President, Kev. B. D. Prescott, Goble ; Vice Presidents, Mr. Erkenbeck, Almena, M. Lane, Bloomingdale, O. S. Brown, Pine Grove, and O. W. Bush, Waverly; Secretary, Geo. W. Myers, Goble. Rev. R. S. Dean, Dr. A. E. Bnlson and E. M. Eaton, Com. on Programmes for ensuing year. Tbe balance of the afternoon session was given up to speech-making. The Tbe'President introduced one of the advertised speakers C. G. Townsend, of Bloomingdale. The gentleman's tbeme was temperance, and as it is of widespread importance, my notes are copious. Tbe gentleman had no prejudices to gratify, he came there in response to invitation in the hope that a temperance talk would do aome good. He bad felt the terrible conse quences of liquor-drinking, and was prepared to speak from bitter experience. It bad come to be ascertained that sober men made better citizens, better husbands, better sweethearts, and tbe temperance war which is now being waged is but an outburst of the great heart of tbe people in favor of tbe rights of sober men, aawall as tbe unfortunate victim of appetite. There are many phases Qf the question he would like to discuss, but time would not per mit. The first thought is the glaring inequality of the temperance public before tbe law. The atrange anomaly is presented of a great people, eminent for virtue and intelligence, legislating in favor of tbe baser elements of citizenship. A crime against God and humanity is clothed with tbe dignity of legal protection, and from this vantage ground an int erect engaged in making drunkards, in increasing the burdens of taxation, in blighting hearts and homes, can bid defiance to anv adequate punishment. We have the anomaly of a law that legalizes a criminal-making business, and in tbe same act fixes tbe penalty tbe criminal thus made must expiate. No where on our statute-book is there justice or mercy for tbe poor, broken-hearted slave of appetite. Men may tempt him, he may be ruined in health and reputation, but there is no remedy in the law for bis woes. If he lies to assuage a thirst the legalized tempter has created, the law regards him as a perjured scoundrel, and visits punishment upon him. Again, tee law nowhere provides equality with tbe liquor-seller for a class that feel directly the crushing power of the traffic Woman stands guard at the threshold of our homes with no power but moral suasion over the great destroyer of her peace. The despoiler of tbe holy fabric wbich she rears is entrenched behind the law, is a law-maker, and her voice is dumb. Husband, father, brother, son, may go down to drunkard's graves, and there is nothing but a pecuniary remedy in the law for her, A great state discriminates between citizen-, Jeopardiz es tbe great interests of society by claas legis lation, and puts a monied value on tbe desola tion, death and riot its statute books encour ages and fosters. And Michigan is not excep tional. All over the land public sentiment seems to have crystallized into laws that pre aent humanity sbackeled at the feet of the rum. fiend, and aa a result prison and pauper houses are growing, crime is on the Increase, and men are finking into unhallowed graves, women are dying broken-hearted, and children are wan, ragged and atarving. Tbe situation demands remedy. Humanity must triumph or else tbe world'a best hopes must trail in tbe dust. So long as tbe liquor-traffic exists no one is safe. It contains the possibility of a drunkard'a woe upon every bearthbtone In the land. It adds nothing to the world's prosperity; it is a con stant menace to the peace and perpetuity of society. AH classes of society, every trade, profession and avocation are ahadowed by it. Christian duty waa considered, and tbe speaker said thatbe temperance cause must become a part of tbe christian's life. He was liatened to atteutively, and made some points that alaa, are too true. Kev. B. D. Prescott said that the evils of in temperance (could not be overestimated, and that it was the duty of christians everywhere to stand up for tbe right. II. P. Macfarlin, of Waverly, a man who bad been through tbe mill, gave a stirring five min utes' temperance speech, after which music cloed tbe exercises of the day, and after an hour of fun and frolic far the children, and a genuine visit on the part of adults, the crowd commenced to disperse. At six o'clock Pine Grove had assumed her wontvd quiet, and she lay shimmering in a sinking August sun, none tbe worse for the baptism of humanity wbich abe bad welcomed that day. Tbe rupture of the blood vessel of Mrs. Mary A., wife of Capt. B. H. Dyckman, resulted in ber death yesterday morning, at four o'clock. Certainly all that medical skill could do was done to save the life of one who was only known to be loved and respected, but it w as willed otherwise. As a mother, wife, neighbor and friend she bad qualities but few possessed, and tbe village at largo will mourn her untimely departure, ner f unerai services w.ll be held at the Methodidt Church at two o'clock to-morrow afternoon, Kev.

Dr. Reynolds will resume bis lectures in this State during the coming autumn. The red ribboners are taking a fresh bold. Over 1,000 Lansing ladies petition for tbe enforcement of tbe Sunday law relative to closing saloon?, The red-ribbon club at Cambria Mills, Hills dale county, had 130 members before it was a week old. Tbe Battle Creek red ribbon club is gaining in membership so rapidly that a larger ball must be obtained. This is certainly encourag ing news. The Red-ribbon movement though silent and undemonstrative, is not without salutary influ ence. Another saloon has closed its doors, and scarcely a case of ' drunk" is ever seen on our streets. Cheboygan Free Press Eleven years ago four young men in this city' all promising young business men, formed a club for tbe purpose of passing their evenings in convivality. Tbey had their hot suppers, with champagne and brandy accompaniments, nightly, and as tbo years passed their drinking habita increased so fast that tbe usual evening spree was very often extended into weeks of debancbery. Since tbe organization of tbe club two of the members have committed suicide hi tb s city by cutting their own throats, one died of delirum tremens in Chicago, and the remain ing one of the quartette put on the red ribbon about tbree weeks ago. Day City Tribune. The young ladies of Manistee are going to choose their company hereafter and will refuse to associate with young men who throw away their money for stuff to make them brutes or fools, who " put an enemy into their mouths to steal away their brains," who are ready to sacrifice their reputation, their health and their prospects of future usefulness, happiness and success to gratify an abnormal and depraved appetite. Tbe girls have pledged themselves as follows : " We, tbe undersigned, desiring to diffuse a pure temperance sentiment, and so hasten tbe abolition of the liquor traffic, do hereby agree, by the help of God, to abstain from tbe nse of all - intoxicating beverages and from voluntary association with young gentle men who use them," Nota 3ena!
