Appeal from justice court. Farmer' Institute. Tho Farmers Institute at South Haven last week was a decided sncecss. We should be pleased to give a fall report of the pro ceedings, but the limited space at our com mand will not permit It. We condense tho following figures relative to the far famed "fruit belt," oonftistir.3 cf Van Pzrtn, Alle gxn and Perrien cousUcs, from aa tbb and exhaustive report made by Hon. C. J. lion-' roe Parrels of apples shipped,- 416,688; bushels of applta evaporated, made into cider, jelly, etc., 2rf,800 value of apple crop, f 8.r3,li04.2O. Paskets of peaches shipped ltH'J7?,; value of crop, gGlSr&ft?. Bas kets of peara shipped, 44,730? value of crop, $20,1 28..W. Paskets of grapes shipped, 208,174; value of crop, f:2)43.). Bankets of plunis, quinces and cherries shipped, 3,031) value of crop, f2,C48.2.r. Doshels of berries of various kinds shipped, 111,204; value of crop, f 222,408. Value of market garden products shipped, $137,893. Grand total, Sl,)01,JX).07. This does not include the vast quantity of fruit consumed in the three counties, whether freh or otherwise. The total value of the wheat crop of the same counties, which has been considered their principal production, was $131,416.83 lesit than the value of the apple crop alone. The total acreage of the three counties is 1,284 G.15; acres in orchards, vineyards and market gardens, 63,000 or about one-twentieth of the entire area. There is still room for a vast expansion of the fruit business and still a market at Chicago and other western cities) for all the fruit that can bo raised by our fruit growers. The statement is an astonish' log one, but is likely to be under rather than in excess of the entire production. Mr. Monroe is entitled to much credit for tho showing made, which has cost him a good deal of labor and time and some money but, like all that he undertakes, it was done well. ObMerver'n Observations. It only costs you fifty dollars now laaboot a ten cent partridge We have filled our new ice house with ice fourteen inches thick. Miss Effio Galligan has just returned from a three weeks' visit at Kalamazoo. Miss Minnio Orr, a beautiful Preedsvillo belle, was out this way on a visit last week. Richard Underwood and wife have been down to Jackson on a visit to their daughter. Milan Hudson got a pension of fifty dollars a month the other day, through Galligan'e agency. Lawrence has a Pass for supervisor. We have known Backers and bullheads to be elected to that office; of the three, give us a Pass. Dr. Francis Sidney Peed has bought a house and lot of Frank Adams at Lawton, which he will occupy as soon as Prof. Hinck ley vacates it. Pangor has a jeweler by the- name of Clock. He has some small clocks that her sells for a dollar each, and others that he wouldn't part with at any price. Geo. Lucas sold ns a ten pound pickerel the other day. George has been picking several of these fellows out of a particular spot, but where that spot is, we say not. Tho Kalamazoo Weekly I'degraph gave us a very good puff last week, for which it has our thanks. The Telegraph has a large patronage in this county, which it richly deserves. A man dressrrr was in town the other day, lokiivtisn place to locate. There are wiirjrrv3 '"rvjaiiors, ana we see valil eaoir Mary E. Jones, the walkist, celebrated her 60th anniversary on the 24th Inst. Let it be distinctly understood that she would not give her little twelve dollars per month for all the men in the country. There is talk that Tink Hills will pull the riabons over Hendryx gr. g. 2:27)j, Jim Lane b. g. 2:29)i, Pelle J. b. m. 2:29i, and Lady Hendryx br. m. 2:30, all Daunt less colts; a quartette that it will take consid erable speed to knock out. Geo. Underwood (Richard's son) who came home from Missouri last summer minus one foot, by reason of a railroad accident, recent ly got a thousand dollars out of the company, has taken a wife and is happy. Chas. K. Galligan bought of S. N. Hurlbut of Detroit, the young stallion Caster Wilkes, by Young Wilkes 2:28,14; dam, Detroit Girl, by General Caster. He bids fair for a good one and will bear watching. They say Miss Fate, a handsome Decatur lady, has got Potts. The following remedy is highly recommended : lake as much red precipitate as will lay on a ten cent piece, mix with dough and make into a pill. If not relieved, repeat the dose. No charges. The Advance speaks of a pine tree that was recently cut near Pangor that turned oat sixteen logs twelvo feet long, two fourteen feet lonz. two eight feet long and one eight een feet long, in all 254 feet in length. Now Lyme, wasn t that rather a long-legged tree 7 A Kentucky soldier wrote to our agent that his regiment, the 41st Ky., had never been mustered out of service and asking if he couldn't get his pay while so serving Uncle Sam. Ho was informed that, as he hadn't reported for duty for twenty-three years, it would 1)0 presumed that he was absent with out leave and not entitled to pay. At one of our lyceums not long since, during a discussion of the question of pen sioning all Union soldiers, a young disciple of Cicero said: " Now it seems to me that all talk of such a law is foolishness here in Michigan. If Chas. E. Galligan and his pen sion agency live a few years longer, every ex-soldier in the state will get a pension anyway.' we ininn so too. A certain township officer applied through Galligan's agency for a pension by reason of sunstroke. After examination, his case was rejected. An appeal was taken by tho agent to the secretary of tho interior and the de cision reversed. New declarations were filed. new evidence introduced, new disabilities set up and all that could be done was dono. A new examination resulted in the allowance of hia claim on the c round of fits. The commissioner fixed the agent s jee at sso-- wnrth at least $75. Tho tensioner does some terrible kicking and says $10 is enough . ... s m j t i- and tnat tuo agent is a irauu um k,t1uS him fits. Perhaps there is some fraud there, but where does it lie? Galligan never lets a claimant ao without a pension. If he can t cet one any other way, like the old doctor, ue tnrows nis pauenia invu ms. on fits 1 A Card. We desire to express oar heartfelt thanka to the many friend who ao kindly assisted ns in our sad bereavement, particularly to the choir for the beautiful singing, to the ladies for their floral offerings and to inosa who so faithfully watched over and cared for our loved one during her long sickness. We can only say Ood bless each and ail. May we meet in a land where pain ana Bicanem, sin and sorrow never come. Geo. Kixa and Famim. Card ef Thanks. To those kind neighbors who were ao un remitting in their attention, also to the principal, teachers and popila of our school, and all others who ao kindly assisted at the funeral of oar darling Attie, we return our roost sincere thanks.
