Menominee Democrat. -. Some years ago Mrs. Mary Cummings, of Hancock, came, into possession of eighty acres of land in the suburds of what is how Superior City. She after wards died leaving as her only heiis her daughter Miss Ida Cummings and Mrs. James Ryan, of Detroit, who were never iuformcd of their right to the land. Last Tuesday a sleek looking fellow from Dulnth called upon Miss Cummings and tried to induce her to sign a deed for $50.00, representing that the property was not much account, that he bought it in for taxos etc He would probibly have succeeded but for t!ie interference of Judgo Dooling, who took some pains to look the matter up and found the property to be worth about $8,000. Dr. W. C. Gates, of Rockland, was called to Trout Creek, a station on the D., S. S. & A. railroad in this county Tuesday, to examine a patient and found a bad state of affairs, there be ing no less than five cases of maglinaat diphtheria and np quarantine measures had been taken. A short time ago a patient died thero with the disease unci the remains were tent to a lower Michigan town, the physician having the case in charge stating that the death was caused from tonsilitis. The place where some of the patients cro confined is an eating house and as every person una rrce access to mo premises it is not known how far the disease has spread.

Vexed Question Settled, A dtoisicn handed down in the.su preme court at Lansing yesterday morning finally settles the question of what are taxable oosta upon the sale of delinquent tax lands. The opinion was delivered in the cue of 1 the Auditor General vs. Sarah McLaughlin,, and affirms the judgement of the court be low. Defendant owned 57 parcels of land in the county of Wayne and neglected to pay the taxes for 1887. They were returned. On Dec. 23 of that year he tendered to the county treasurer the fall amount with interest charges except $1 on each parcel which the treasurer de manded for expenses of advertising and ';' The amount was rofased. Seven weeks laUr the auditor-general filed the petition for the sale of delinquent tax 1 tnds in Wayne county, making the de fendant a party alleging the lands were delinquent. The lands wrre so returned previous , 1o July 1, 1888. Decree was entered for defendant below and complainant appealed. The demand of the auditor-general was based upon Sec. 12, act 103, laws of 1889, contending the $1 should be added after July 1 in each year hnd thus becomes a charge upon the land The court holds that the language of the section. will not admit of this con struction, that the preparation of the petition is not on expense of sale. It is prepared by salaried officers and clerks in the employ of tho state and no additional expense is necessarilyincnried in . preparation. "Besides" savs the court, "the legislature, if they had in tended to include such a charge, could readily have found npt words in which to convey such intention. No costs or expenses in chancery proceedings aro incurred until after tho rendition of the decree. All the expenses before that are termed costs of the suit and are taxed as such." Tho court presumes the legislature used this language in the set with rei'erenco to its definite and well understood meaning. "In the ab senco of express language ve cannot hold that the legislature intended to im pose o unjust and unnecessary a bur den apon taxpaying citizens." Nothing in excess of 1 per cent n month, and 4 per cent as a collection fee can be added to any taxes voluntarily paid either to the township, county, or state treasurer except the expense after it accrues nnJer Bection 52 of the legislative act. The court tub's: "The expenses of a" vortueciont and sale cannot accrue until after decree." , Now For Michigan Sugar. Prof. Kedzie of tho agricultural col lege has just returned from Grand Is land, Neb., whither he went in the in terest of the experimental bureau to in- j vosfigate the manufacture of beet sugar. He brought a samplo of the granul ited sugar made from beets which is equal in appearance and quality to the finer grades of granulated sugars, and which was on sale in the groceries there at 13 pounds for $1. ' The professor says that a very large plant is being operated there. The yield per acre is about 15 tons of boo s and these yield 240 pounds ier ton. There is no reason, if they can be raised in Micligan for about $50 por acre at a profit, why this Btato should not only nir.nufuctnro it own sugar, but be a great source of supply for the rest of thestjto-.
