As re porters were rigidly excluded, we don't know wLat was said or done, but there was an awful racket."

He was given a rigid examination in open court which, according to the Kalama zoo 7W';v;, "he passed in an exception ally brilliant manner" nnd for which "he was highly complimented" by both the court and tho committee. We congratulate our friend J ohn on his success. Mrs. R. F. Stearns and family started on Monday last for Aberdeen, Dak., where Frank is located, and where they intend to make their future home. They leave behind them many warm friends whose wishes for their future happiness will bo ardent and sincere.

The nines were commanded by Capt. R. F. Warner and Capt. Stapleton. The score was thirty-five to sixteen in favor of Capt. Warner and his sluggers. Marion Rowland, umpire. The most remarkable feature about the game was the peculiar banners displayed by Claude Long and John Wood. Wo notice by the Phoenix (N. Y.) Hsyivter, that our old friend, Rev. G. P. Linderman, was married on the ICtn inst.. to Miss Carrie Huntley, of Phunix. The happy pair left on the first train for the elder's home at Lake view, Pa. The Northerner extends congratulations and joins with numerous Paw Paw friends of Mr. L.. in wishing the newly wedded couple a long, happy and pros perous married life. Hon. F. C. Annable of Almena, is in very poor health. It is extremely doubtful if he ever recovers. Mr. Chauncey Abbott of the same township is also in a precarious con dition. Roth of the abovo named gentlemen are well advanced in years, both are old pioneers of this county and have won by their long and honorable lives an emiablo reputation among their fellow citizens. Their taking away will le like the removal of ancient landmarks. Mr. Zimri Warner has commenced an ac tion of tresiwss on the case against the board of trustees of the village of Iawrence. The declaration is not yet filed but we presume he expects to recover damages against the vil lage for money he might have received by dealing out poor whiskey to his neighbors, had the loard not refused to approve his bond. Mr. L. A. Tabor is his attorney. If wo do not very much mistake tho temper of the board, Mr. Zimri will get all the law ho cares for before the trouble is ended. Mr. and Mrs. O. R. Smith of this town ship, desire to return their sincere and heart felt thanks to all those who so kindly assisted them in procuring a horse in place of tho one recently lost by them. Their kindness will long bo gratefully remembered. They desire especially to thank Messrs John Spackeenand Reuben Qua for their kindness in the matter. May we all be ready to lend a helping hand under similar circumstances. That they and all others who so generously contributed may bo ever blessed in stock and store is the sincere wish of the recipients of their liberality. A project is on foot that is expected to de velop into a new roller mill in'tbis village. Mr. Uichard Rarden of CWo, Allegan Co.. is visiting I'ncle Tommy Galligan. It is Mr. R's fir.t visit to Paw ,Puw for thirty years. II. J. Rrown Iq. of South Haven, is can vassing this vicinity for "Ridpath's Cyclo pedia of Universal History." Seohis"ad." in this paper. Sheri:T Galligan of Kalamazoo, was in town the forepart of this week. He and Sheriff Todd went on a fishing excursion together. Some malicious party reports that their principal conversation was as fol lows : "Says tho sheriff of Kalamazoo County to the sheriff of Van Huron County, It's a long time between drinks'." We don't believe it. The following is a list of delegates elected at tho republican caucus held in this village last Saturday, to attend tho county conven tion at Lawrence. Josiah Andrews, Samuel Holmes, O. E. Gilman, C. F. Covert, A. C. Martin, K. W. Noyes, A. R. Wildey, R. F. Warner, W. 51. Thayer. George Tuttle, O. N. Hilton, Archibald Rilbo. If other townships send as fair a lot of representive men, the convention will be an able one. Tho following is the way tho common council of the village of Lawrence put itself on record in tho matter of approving Zimri Warner's whiskey bond : " Resolved That tho Lawrenco Villago Council adopt and put on record this declaration, to-wit: That wo have approved the bond of Zimri II. Warner under protest, and solely in obedi ence to a peremptory order of the supreme court contained in a writ of mandamus is sued against us, in which, in our belief, a llagrant injustice has been done this village, it being well known to this board that said bond is wholly insufficient and invalid, and tho supreme court having been notified to that etl'ect." The following letter received by Mr. C. O. Scoville, proprietor of tho Peninsular House nt Lake Cora, was written by Mr. Jas. T. V. Hill of tho Indianapolis Sodiiul. It shows in what high estimation Hon. J. S. Hinton. who will deliver tho address at Lake Cora on Emancipation Day Monday August 2d is held by the people who know him. "I see that tho Hon. J. S. Hinton. a friend of mine has Wen invited to address you on tho 2d of August. On behalf of the people of Indiana, I urn moved to ?ay that wo take great pride in such tokens of appreciation coming from a sister state. Ho will, no doubt, make you a good speech, as ho is a man of talent and recognizee! ability." l!t'iinlon. A pleasant time is anticipated nt the re union of Co. "C" :'.d Mich. Cav. and Co. "G" PJth Micb.Inft, at Four Mile Lake on Thurs day and Friday of this week. We have pre pared a muster-roll of Co. C", containing tho names of 187 persons who were members of that organization and the roll is still in complete. One of tho desirablo objects to be accomplished at the meeting will be a com pletion of this roll nnd obtaining as nearly as possible, tho address of all turviving members, to that we may keep track of all j our old comrades. Let no member of either I of the th3 above companies remain away, if it is possible for him to be there. Come out I boys, and bring your wives and babies. If you have none, borrow some for the occa sion. AH who can should brirg tents. Let this our first reunion, bo one long to be re membered.
