He had a se . v.ere fall while thus/engaged and was ; uncon» clous and since then has suSered terrible pains in £he back. Claude H» Woltoni formerly of JLeroy, Calhoun county, now a resident of Grand Rapjds, has begun a f25,000 suit in the Wayne circuit court against J. C. Day, state manager ef the Equitable Life Assurance society, for libel. Wei ton alleges*that he used to be agent for the/Equitable at I^eroy, and that in re loving him from the position Day used language harsh enough to injure Wtjl ton to the amount be claims. During all the talk of old soldiers be ing deprived of their pension, we hear of but one in this vicinity who has been suspended: Rumor says that one man who was getting a pension applied for an. increase and was ordered to report to tbe Jackson county board for exami nation, and when that board made it: report tbe pension was stopped. TUit> is the story us told by a member of the U. A. R post. The examining board was republican and the pensioner a democrat, we believe. Battle Creek Journal: Our well known pioneer Milton Barney, was a witness in the first contested la'w suit in Calhoun county. The suit tried at Marshall in 1834, the parties to it being Nathaniel Barney, father of Milton, and Mr. Cuykendall, au inn keeper at Marshall. The latter brought tbe suit against the former for payment lor the use of a stage wagon, which Mil ton, then a boy of fifteen years, drove between Battle Creek and Marshall on bis father's stage conl ract. The attor neys in the case were Franeta W. Shear man, of Marshall, afterward State Sup; erinteudent of Public Instruction, who appeared for Cuvkendaji, aud Ezra Convis, of this city, then just arrived from the east, and subsequeuily the first speaker of the House at Represent tatives, Isaac E. Crary, the justice be iore whom the case was tried, was af terward the first member of congres; from Michigan, and bis office was crowded with people interested in the result. Mr. Barney, who was the prin cipal witness for hia father, remembers well an effort ol Mr. Shearman to COQ• fuse him and thus break up bis testi mony, and the vigorous way in which - Mr. Convis. who wasWsbrother-iBi law, Qame to the reseuelaa the severe, l»a guage in which b'e>ewstej| tfee* pppos ing\sijOJr.pfi|'8 assault^, tiia surprise tbat the "Jan.

An old caid player gives the following answer: "The game is flayed the same as seven up, excepting that you bid for the trump and have to make what you bid in or der to count. When properly. played the player failing to make what is bid goes back that number of points. One hiug that makes tbe game interesting is that the player, failing to make what bids, Bweetens the pot an amount equal the ante. Accordingly with five in the game at a quarter flat, the pot sometimes runs np to four or five dol lars before a game is finished.*' And this is the game, tfie ladies are getting so excifed Over.' ' •: A case will soon be decided in Detroit', which will be of interest to .the county treasurers and the people generally throughout the state. Charles K. Back us took a land contract to the Wayne countv treasurer's office last Friday for the purpose of securing a certificate that the state had no lien on, and that the taxes had been paid for the preced ing five years—such a certiflcate be'ng requited • before the register Of deeds could record the contract acder the new tax law. Tbe certificate was pre pared, but the county treasurer refused to give it up unless Mr Backus surren der oil 40 cents. Mr. Backus would give nothing on the ground that tbe treasur er was paid a salary for his services and had rfo right to exact anything for the service lie had perform id, and as tbe refusal to give him tbe certificate without charge was persisted in, be brought suit WednerHlapr to compel the treasur urer to accede'to his demand. The St. Joe drain matter was settled by Judge Ipgersoll in the probate court. Thursday. A number of residents of Clarendon and Humer petitioned the county drain commissioner for two drains one ten rods long a-jd the other one hundred rods Jong. The commissioner went on and surveyed a drain about 310 rods in length, connecting the two asked for, and making one continu ous drain , Beingjunable to Joblain the rijrbt of way he petitioned the judge of probate ta appoint a commission tocod- dtuun the land. The .bearing was held yesterday and Judge Ingersoll dented the petition, f»r the reason that the' drain laid oui by the drain com mission ur was not in .accordance with the one the petitioners. Quite a hllle eipeuau was incurred aud theques tion WMV arises as to who will pay the bill. If the commissioner' had went ac cording 19 I he petition those who signed it would be fur the expenses, but as be weapon and laid out aboat250 rods of ditch- that'nQ"one asked for they cannot, it .would see'ru, be laaade. to pay for ;th.e commiasionprs mistake.. The Courts may be called upon to settle the matter. " - t Motle« R«t*tlv» to Oowt. Tha ordinance relative to pasturing dbws in tbe street will be strictly en forced.
