In iMayfield Township five brothers by the name of Drost have lived for some years. They have always borne ja bad name and were a terror to the whole surrounding country. For some time highway robberies have occured in the vicinity, and the num ber was constantly increasing. Only 'a fevr weeks ago three took place in one night in Traverse City.

Several days ago business matters i-alled an A Ita representative to the residence in question and necessitated' si h-ngthy interview with the genial gentleman whose home it is. The reporter held risen to go when his eye chanced to catch a dull, yellow gleam from a. glass-covered case close at hand.

Some llrjskin Jatiec. 'By the ay," said the old-timer to the reporter, looking up from his morning paper, "I gee you have sent officers out to Fort Yum; to arrest an Indian there for killing one of hia companions. That reminds me of a case that happened here way back in the sixties. In those days the white people didn't care much about how the Indians acted, and we let them tight their own battles. One day a party of Coahuilas came in with one of their number named Coche (he was 2'at like a pig, and that was the way he got his name). They took him to the court house and wanted him tried and punished for killing another Indian. But as no white man had seen or knew any thing ahont the matter, tlw officer refused to take charge of Mr, Coche, and told the Indians that they would have to settle the affair the best they could. "Well, they took Coche down to Squaw Flat, near Warm 'creek, and had a big pow-wow over him. He Avas found guilty of murder and sen tenced to be hanged. The sentenc...

A MEMORY LESSON. Some or the Beauties cf a Scientific MoJers Sys tem. Luke Sharp in Detroit Free Tros. I was sitting in my room in the Free Press building the other day, working hard, with my feet on the desk, when the doorway darkened and I looked up. There stood, with a Land on each of the door posts, a most disreputable looking specimen of a man. I sized him up instantly as a drunkard and made up my mind that he wanted to work me for 'Ju cents. In this I was wrong, as it shows how a person should be slow in com ing to an opinion about an unknown fellow-creature. lie wanted only ten cents.

Gerald Oakley, quickened his steps for a trilling fancy; he wished to take tickets for a theatre and to secure the best places he could. Delphine Marston hastened her pace for the sake of reaching" a fashionable West End house of business at the earliest possible moment, hoping to receive the money due fur a beautful piece of art embroidery she had done to order. It had been raining, and pools of water, which were half mud, stood in the street.
