A l oud do Lac tooth. From the fond do Lac Commonwealth. A Man named Holland living out on the gobs farm was attacked with a severe Toothache the other evening and he thought his head would split open. Ile would sit Down for a moment holding his face in one of his hands and groan. Then he would jump up and Pace the floor and kick at something that happened to lie in his course and then sit Down and groan some it was a bad Case. Everybody in the House was Tho Many a sufferings and lamentations. He tried holding Alum and Salt in his month and binding horse Raddish leaves on the outside of his jaw but they did no Good. Finally somebody came across a copy of or chases receipt Book and therein was a Balm for every ill. In two minutes a receipt was selected and a courier dispatched with it to a drug stare in the City to have it a put he returned in due time and a dose of the compound which contained among other ingredients Liberal quantities of Ether and chloroform was administered. Presently the Toothache was relieved and the patient Felt himself gradually being overpowered by sleep. The suspicion All at once crossed his mind that he had been poisoned Aud that this which he now Felt coming on was but the precursor of that Long last sleep which knows no waking except on the other Side of Jordan in the Sweet Fields of Eden. He became greatly alarmed Aud appealed to those present in a frenzy of desperation to save him from his impending Fate. A doctor was immediately sent for and while the messenger was gone the alarm was communicated to Tho neighbors. One of the men seized a pail and rushed out into the pasture where he woke up a cow milked about a quart and hurried Back to the House. This the dying Man drank and had just finished when another neighbor came in and said that there was nothing so sure a antidote for All kinds of Poison raw eggs. Seven or eight raw eggs were Given the suffering Man and he had just intimated that it Wasny to possible for him to 8%vallow another when two More neighbors arrived simultaneously one bearing a can of lard and the other a Tea Saucer full of Coffee. The land with the lard said that they must help her get some of it Down him right away a there Wasny to a moment to lose and the one with the Coffee set about preparing a cup of that beverage for the dying Man which she said must be Strong enough to hold up a Iron wedge. The unfortunate Man had got Down about three fourths of a Tea cupful of lard when the Coffee was ready and he unbuttoned his Waistcoat and swallowed it. There seemed to be just room enough left for it. Another neighbor came in and insisted that what the patient needed was an emetic to throw the Poison out of the stomach. He said the quicker they did something of that kind the better it would be for him and that it was dangerous to delay the matter a moment longer. They had prepared a quart bowl of Strong Salt Aud water and were urging Holland to drink some of it when the doctor arrived. He examined the contests of the bottle carefully tasted it Aud then said a this All right a very Good remedy for Toothache and neuralgia give the patient a rest for a time from his a and ainu to it Poison a gurgled the Man who was so full of new milk raw eggs lard Coffee and Salt water that he could scarcely articulate a a ainu to it Poison doctor a a a Well no not exactly and yet a quart or two of it might kill a Many or it might not it would depend a Good Deal on his Constitution. A Man of your Constitution could easily get away with a churn full of death of a centenarian.

The Council at Plymouth Church Adrian tuesday evening adopted recommendations that each party in the prevailing difference prepare and submit to the Mutual Council a basis of reconciliation and Union. Or. Eddy Rev. Moses Smith and Bro. E. a reporter in Church. And How m prom in a Young Nan a ruined by turning preacher. From the Detroit evening news among the audience which snooze in one of our City churches last sunday was one of those notorious bohemians of the press. The Prince of Wales would not have attracted More attention than he did when sliding along up the aisle he slipped into a seat with much shyness if it were a secret political caucus to which he had been refused admittance. Even the Deacon who passed the Money trap Down his Way Learned what his vocation was although he never saw him before for when the hat came to him he Tore a slip of paper from his notebook and wrote thereon a for president James g. Blaine a and innocently dropped it in among the Shin plasters. The Sermon finally lulled him to sleep. He stayed until the main portion of the audience had filed out and then one of the deacons seeing his bowed head and sad look and hearing his sighs he afterwards discovered that they were snores came to him Aud touched his Arm. Said he a my Young Friend How do you feel a the reporter rubbed his eyes stared wildly about him and said a i feel like the d 1 what time it a the Deacon chided him for his uncouth Ness of speech Aud while the conversation was going on quite a crowd who knew the reporter gathered around him and began to inquire what had brought him into so strange a place. There was something about the very air of the Church Aud the hardness of the seats which brought Back the memory of by Goue Days Aud so powerfully did the memory of the past crowd in upon his mind that before he knew it he had commenced to Tell them his past Liis death of Hom Ransom Sard Mer. History Al his life and character. From the Kalamazoo Telegraph. June 9. Intelligence was received Here this morning of the Sadden death from pneumonia and congestion of the lungs of or. Ransom Gardner which occurred this Friday morning. It Only a week ago to Day that mrs. Gardner was summoned by a Telegram and left Here to attend the illness of her husband. On sunday week he was Here at Home in Good health and in unusually Good spirits Over the virtual completion of his Railroad Enterprise in Indiana. His sudden death has been unexpected Aud a severe Shock to his relatives and friends. Or. Gardner was born at it. Ann new York about 1811. He moved to Elbridge in the same state when a Young Man and soon after came to Jonesville Mich., about 1837. He took up land there was senior partner in the leading store and built two Mills at or near the place. His first connection with Railroad matters in which he was chiefly known in this Community was in a contract for the station House at Jonesville he next took a contract for grading on the Michigan Southern or Northern Indiana which was pushing on toward Chicago. This was followed with contracts of track laying he did a Large part of the latter for the m. S. Or n. I., from Jonesville to the tory in explanation of his unlocked for 1 end of the route and a Large amount presence in the House of worship. Said he a my hearers strange it May seem the miserable Unco bed sinner before you was once a Captain in the Ark of safety Aud stood in a rack of torture pointing to the pulpit Aud pounded gospel out of a old Bible and preached to sleep an audience in a Little White Church in Ransom county of Hillsdale state of Michigan . Ransom has More churches and less religion than any other town in the state. It was there that the miserable sinner before you was raised. It was there that he was enticed into the ministry by a most singular event Aud through the ministry that to wan reduced to his present forlorn unwashed condition which renders him unfit for aught else than to help fill up the ranks of prowling Bohemia ism. A the event which thus changed the current dammed it it were of his life was follows the Church which his parents belonged to Aud reposed in was the most penurious body of worshippers that lightning Ever failed to strike. Every sunday when the hat was passed you could hear the Click of knives pennies were being split in two and the groan of the goddess of Liberty on the pennies the people gave them a Farewell Pinch. They were too stingy to hire a minister but every week they had the Deacon read a Sermon out of the new Yolk Independent through his nose. One Day the Deacon caught cold in his nasal Organ and read. I had been away to school and was considered a Prince in learning Well a Model of piety. I was called upon to read the Hermon. I hesitated at first for it was an awful responsibility and besides i had agreed to command a squad of Melon Patch foragers that afternoon. At length that memorable Aud i May say cussed occasion came Aud with it a Large audience to hear the Young hopeful read. At precisely 10 30 of clock i walked into Church with my paper Tuider my Arm and chewing a Box of Browne a troches to fit my vocal organs for their solemn service. In the rear of me walked my juvenile brother aged eight years Aud celebrated one of the most mischievous youths out of the House of correction. After All the audience had become seated and commenced to Chew their Caraway seed the Deacon gave out the hymn and after singing announced that i would read a Sermon out of the new York Independent. He winked at me which was the signal to proceed. I swallowed my last troche Aud walked proudly out before Tho audience. I had read the Sermon so frequently that i knew the first part of it by heart. I announced the text in a bold Man perhaps a half of the Chicago a Rock Island track. The latter Road was then now the chief Western connection of a the or. Gardner owned i Coo acres on the c. Amp r. I. West of Chicago and platted a Village there. The chief business of the place has been in the hands of r. Gardner so co., till within a year or. Gardner having lately withdrawn from the firm. Or. Also built the old station House of these two railroads a building first erected temporarily by or. Gardner but used by the companies for 20 years till replaced by their present imposing Structure. His next work was to build the Detroit amp Toledo Branch of the Southern during the construction of which he removed to Detroit for a time. He also built the Jackson and Adrian Branch we believe. His moans were largely invested in the Southern Stock it reported at a time when it was quoted somewhere in the neighbourhood of 30 cents. It proved fortunate that his construction contracts brought him Stock at so Low rates for it afterwards appreciated two or three Hundred per or. Gardner was induced to take the Road from White Pigeon to three Rivers in hand when it was apparently a hopeless investment and a dead weight on Tho Michigan Southern. It had at that time but something of a Road bed and to this extent it was capital. Or. Urdu Era a plan was to extend the Road to Kalamazoo and tap Tho Rich county that centres Ile had his mind on the mining and Lixe Stock interest and his sagacity in securing their patronage has been sufficiently Well indicated by the Grain Aud pork Trade of the Lake Shore station Here. Capt. A. Wells a former Friend who had just come out of the army was associated with or. G., in extending the Branch Road to Kalamazoo and has retained the partnership since that time. The completion of a Lake Shore connection to Kalamazoo brought the advantages of the Blue and red lines which were at once added to our previous facilities competitors for Kalamazoo freights. The credit of this belongs to Ransom Gardner. He also conceived the idea of advancing the line to grand rapids and the project was at once pushed through. The name of the firm that built the Road was Gross Warner amp co., but or. Gardner was president of the Coroner and then i glanced Over toward Pany that looked out for the wherewith that sinful brother of mine much for putting the Road in shape. The to say a now pay attention to you Road was built to Kalamazoo a con brother a Reading. A but i noticed that Section to the Michigan Southern but a wicked smile played Over his feat the Bonds for ironing the Road to grand ures. I had no time to consider the a rapids were guaranteed by or. Jas. F. National Quot the Rev. E. W. Childs officiated assisted by Rev. Or. Cole of the methodist Church. Or. Childs Sermon was from 2d corinthians 4th chapter 16th and 17th verses. The pall bearers were George c. Munro w. J. Baxter Jonathan b. Graham l. D. Green Alfred Hopkins John. Lewis Harley j. Olds John Hendryx. It was the largest and most impressive funeral which has Ever taken place in Jonesville All classes of people taking a deep interest in the last rites to one who was so Well known and so greatly esteemed. Persons were present also from Many other places. We give below the names of nearly All who went from this place w. Pattison and family Henry Gilbert j. And r. Burns Chaa. L. Cobb Thomas 8. Cobb w. A. Wood a. C. Wortley r. S. Babcock d. B. Merrill or. And mrs. Mccourtie mrs. 8. H. Ransom w. J. Bishopp Henry Bishopp Lucien Bishopp. I. D. Bixby de. Bixby or. A. B. Cornell or. And mrs.

Those who went from Kalamazoo to Jonesville speak in Terras of High Praise of Tbs efforts by superintendent Amsdon of the Lake Shore so Michigan Southern railway for the Comfort of the party. He went with them and gave his personal attention to details. Conductor m. V. Church also gratefully remembered for his affability and the admirable manner in which the train was run. The train left Jonesville on its return at about six of clock Aud arrived Here at nine in the evening. The scenes on the Railroad which or. Gardner had recently completed testified the love and regard his Mea had for him. While the funeral train was passing Over the Road last Friday every station was crowded with people and employs and even along Tho track people came out to see the train and if possible Oatch one look at the face which was so familiar to them and to pay the tribute of a tear to one whom they All loved. Indeed at Wabash the cortege was detained an hour that the late or. Gardner a a friends might have an Opportunity of one More look Aud to show the sorrow they Felt at his death and the sympathy with the fam by. Or. Gardner was one of the kind of men who win the personal regard and affection of those associated with him. Cause of it but darted a look of re j proach at him unfolded the paper Ami commenced. A my hearers a said i boldly and then i glanced for the first time Down at my paper Audi of horrors had it been a Boa Constrictor i have Felt so painfully surprised wily that snicker from the wicked Young brother ? Why do the j deacons and the listeners stare angrily at Tho paper reason enough Why i again i looked at the paper to see if after All it was not some wild dream and then i beheld the title. It was a the Days the floor was i not accommodating enough to open 1 and let me Down through nor did Chain lightning strike that miserable i sinful brother who at the last moment before Church had changed the papers and put a copy of the Days doings in place of that pious Sheet the new York Independent. A at length i staggered to my seat. I heard the Deacon groan i went past him and for the first time in years a Squire Brown was awake in Church. A awful hush brooded Over Tho audience. Why did not some Mother sympathise with me and Pinch her baby Arni cause it to Squall and break the painful silence at last it became too painful to be borne. Then i staggered to my feet again grasped a testament opened it Hap Hazard found a text and began to preach. No one can Tell what i said. But i managed to bring in a few stereotyped cant phrases quite frequently and at length i had the pleasure of seeing the audience drop off to sleep. A i concluded my Sermon. The Deacon pressed my hand gratefully i passed out and i Felt too Happy Over my Success to kick my brother until we arrived Home. The result was that Joy with the Hope of patting the Road where he could control its management in the interest of the Central. The trains to grand rapids did run from the Central depot Here or a some reflections have been cast on or. Gardner by or. Joy for ultimately giving the grand rapids Extension into the hands of the Southern. We were informed about four years ago by a gentleman whose knowledge and Jud ment in the matter we consider unbiased that there was nothing in the transaction in any Way unfavourable to or. Gardner a character. The Kalamazoo Allegan amp grand rapids Road was sold in open Market to the party making the Best offer. Or. Gardner was engaged for a Little time in building the Michigan Lake Shore Road and even undertook the Cincinnati Wabash amp Michigan Road which has been built from Goshen ind., to Anderson. Or. Gardner and his partner capt Wells finished this Road during these Adverse circumstances a feat that Speaks for their perseverance and Good management. Or. Gardner married miss Olivia a. Smith sister of or. B. F. Smith of Kalamazer at Jonesville where she was engaged in teaching. Their Home was most of the time in Jonesville except a Short time in Detroit and three Rivers till they removed Here in 1876, when he was building the a Gardner Road to this place. Besides the other investments of which we have spoken or. Gardner owns extensive tracts of wild lands. Himself and capt. Wells Are sole owners of the c. W. A m. Road. He was also heavily interested in the R. Gardner Woolen Mills at Jonesville that failed last year. The latter difficulty was due to a Detroit failure in which the Jonesville company had i become interested without Ransom recent Law decision. Or. A. Tausig of the Law depot of the University has handed the following having a local Well a general importance the United states supreme court has recently decided in the Case of Gangle Appellant . Northwestern Mutual life insurance company the following important Point Viz 1. That persons dealing with an agent Are entitled to the same Protection if dealing with the principal to Tho extent that the agent arts within the scope of his authority. 2. That where a party to an negotiable instrument entrusts it to another for use such with Blanks not filled up such instrument go delivered carries on his face an implied authority to Complete the same by filling up the Blanks but the authority implied from the existence of the Blanks would not authorize the person entrusted with the instrument to vary or altar the material terms of the instrument by erasing what written or printed part of the same by filling the Blanks with stipulations repugnant to what was plainly and clearly expressed in the instrument before it was delivered. 3. That when one entrusted with negotiable securities for use by the parties to it May if it contains Blanks fill the the same but if he materially change words which Are printed or written the note by such change would be rendered valid. 4. That where a person takes a note with such Marks upon its face he must be presumed to have knowledge of what imported. 5. That actual notice in such a Case not required even in suits founded upon negotiable securities where the evidence of its infirmity consists of matters apparent on its face nor there any different or stricter Rule applicable in cases like appear ing that the printed words though erased so to inoperative were still entirely legible even to the casual readers Aud the words a current funds inserted before the erased word a drafts were plainly repugnant to the erased words a drafts to the order of which followed them in the same connection. 6. That constructive notice in such cases held sufficient upon the grounds that when a party about to perform an act which he has reason to believe May effect the rights of third persons a inquiry to the facts a moral duty and Diligence an act of Justice. Whatever puts a party upon inquiry in such a Case sufficient notice in equity where the Means of knowledge Are at hand and if the party under such circumstances omits to in 3airy, and proceeds to do the act he Oes so at his peril he then chargeable with All the facts which by a personal inquiry he might have i rom Chicago Legal Ngab of May 27th, 1876, Page 281.
