Careful inquiry with reference to the

frost on Sunday and Monday nights enables

us to report the following concerning

the injury done in Ann Arbor and vicinity

: A farmer of North Mold says that in a

ride several miles after the frost he found

but two or three pieces of corn badly hurt.

In some parts of Northfield, though, corn,

buckwheat, etc., seem to be considerably


More injury, however, was

done In Superior, but here as In other

places the frosts carried ruin in streaks,

some fields being badly injured and others

not far away unhurf.

Jas. Sage, of Lodi, says a dividing line

of the frosts' ravages appeared to be west

f his place. From that point to Freedom

much damage was done, but on the gravel

road In the opposite direction little injury

was effected. He has two pieces of corn

three-quarters of a mile apart—the west

was badly hurt while that on the east was

not injured at all. Jacob Hick?, of Lodi,

says his corn is not damaged. J. A. Van-

Cleve, who had several acres of tomatoes

half a mile south of Ypsilanti, lost $2,000

by the frosts' injuries. On Mr. Foster's

farm south of here, and" near Ypsilanti,

nothing was damaged. In Webster not

much injury was done. In general, the

frosts seem to have done much injury In

some sections In others none, the crops on

low lands suffering most.


A few weeks since we published a letter

giving Colorado from one writer's point

of view. Below we insert a communication

from a former resident here consider,

ing Colorado from a somewhat different

standpoint. The letter will doubtless

prove very interesting:

EDITOR COURIER : In a late number of

the CoUKiER I read an extract from a letter

written by Emory Townsend, in Colorado.

He says: "there are thousands

and thousands of acres of nothing but sage

brush and sand. Step outside of any town,

aud that is all that meets your view except

mountain scenery which is very line."

l'ity he could not have taken some of that

back to Michigan with him, as I have no

doubt he is there ere this. I would wager

a box of cigars that he did not sign Ann

Arbor after his name on any hotel register

in Colorado, simply E. Townsend, Mich.

He thought that was near enough to locate

his residence when lie was so far from

from home. But had he gone out among

the sage brush and sand he would have

seen a very small Insignificant looking

grass, he would also have seen thousands

and thousands of horses, cattle, and sheep,

fat and sleek from eating this self-same

grass.on which, alone, they live and thrive

the entire year making the millionaires lie

speaks ot in Cbeyenne, and in many other

towns throughout the State. In other

places he could have seen luxuriant meadows

where sage brush never grew. In

other places he could have seen where the

sage bush had been cleared off waving

grain, the like of which cannot be grown

in Michigan, in quality or quantity per

acre. He says : " there is not a spear of

clover, they cannot raise ii." If he will

come to Gunnison I will show him clover,

timothy and blue grass equal to any

grown in Michigan, and growing on the

ground where the Ute Indians had their

race course less than five years ago. I will

show him in a town just four years old and

where the ritle pits are not yet obliterated

made less than four years since to protect

what few inhabitants there were here at

that time from the Indians, churches

equal in number, capacity and finishto

what Ann Arbor had in 1854 or when it

was about twenty years old. I will show

him three school houses that are far ahead

of any that Ann Arbor had until the Union

School house was built, that are equal

to any Ann Arbor has to-day except

in size I will show bin a hotel equal,

if not superior, to any hotel in Michigan.

I will show him gas, and water works put

in at an expense of two hundred and fifty

ihousmd dollars, of a capacity for a city

of twenty-flva thousand inhabitants,

As to the women being as dark as Indians,

he must have confined his attentions,

while here, to the Mexican females


As to shade trees, we may not have any

equal to the hard maple with which Anil

Arbor is beautified, but they are not far

behind. Cottonwood is not the only tree

we have here, 'tis not the only tree they

have in Denver. They have magnificent

churches also. The oilier towns he

speaks ot I am not familiar with, so I do

not know what they have in the way of

churches or shade trees. But people who

come to Colorado to look for work in the

shade are extremely liable to be disappointed,

while there is plenty of room here

for men of energy and determination. A

friend of mine, a carpenter, came to Denver

in the spring of 1879 he could not get

work at his trade so he went to driving

team at one dollar per day, and at the same

time he was paying $7.00 per week for

board, not very encouraging you will say,

but it was better than nothing or loafing.

Soon he had an offer of $2.00 per day and

board which he accepted, and for the last

three years lie has had plenty of work at

wages that would make an Ann Arbor

mechanic think of starting a National

Bank soon or taking a trip to Europe.

Now do not take it that lam saying anything

against Ann Arbor, or Michigan, it

was my home for eighteen years, it is where

I tjot my education what little I have.

Ann Arbor is a beautiful and thriving city.

Washtenaw county is a rich and prosperous

county, and Michigan is a gre:it State

of beautiful towns and splendid farms

ivith fine farm buildings. There is hardly

any part of this great country but lias some

advantages over some other part.

He says men look for work and find it

not. It was only yesterday that I saw a

ranchman (farmers you would call them,)

looking for three men to work at haying,

he could not find one. In one of our feunnison

dailies only last week I saw an advertisement

for experienced men to run

mowing machines. In the Denver News

of the 28th an advertisement for one thousand

five hundred men to work on the

Railroad at $2.25 per day and board at

$5.00 per week, also for sheep herders,

ranch hands, cooks and blacksmiths, looks

as though a few men could find work here.

If all the people in Michigan who are

troubled with asthma would come to Colorado,

nine out often of them would.find

entire relief at some altitude, so long as

they stayed there, and people troubled

with weak lungs, or consumption in the

earlier stages, will find in our ratified air,

and pine and spruce laden breezes, entire

relief so long as they stay, and in many

cases a permanent cure.



We are in receipt of the following in

reply to a letter appearing in these columns

some issues since. Its appearance

has been unavoidably delayed several

weeks :

MB. EDITOR : I have been reading with

interest an article on the subject of money,

published in your paper, and, not agreeing

with the writer on the more prominent

points lie presents, I have concluded

to give you my views on the subject. The

money question is one of the most important

subjects ot the day. It aifects every

interest of society, the industrial, agricultural,

professional, and commercial; therefore

that money that fills its office in the

cheapest, safest, easiest, and most correct

manner, is the best. The firstquestion to

be settled is, what is money ? Money performs

two offices. It is a measure of value,

and a medium of exchange. It is an invention

to meet tlie demands of trade, just

as the plow is an invention growing out

of the necessities of agriculture. The

Phoeneciaus invented coin, about 1200

years before Christ. Previous to that all

value of money as a medium of exchange,

was ascertained by weight; hence the term

shekel, so often used in the Scriptures,

means to weigh.

The commercial interests of the nations,

as they advanced in civilization, led to the

adoption of checks of deposit, and bills of

exchange. "Fiat money" was introduced

by the Lombards in the eleventh century.

Hence we see that money has existed

in some form from the earliest dawn

of civilization. It has differed as much in

its denominations, as a standard of value,

as the nations have differed that used them.

And to-day there are no two nations that

have the same standard; hence it cannot

be assumed with any degree of correctness,

that the cost of mining and the expense

of coining, are the means of determining

the value of the coin; at least,

there is nothing in the laws of Congress,

or was not four years ago, on the subject

of coinage, that indicates any such basis;

but the value of gold and silver in markets

of the commercial nations is taken to

regulate the value of coins, in this and in

other nations. The whole subject comes

under the dominion of law ; while the material

out of which it is made has nothing

to do witli its ofiice as a measure of value,

or medium of exchange. Uncoined chunks

of gold and silver have no more power as

money, than so many pieces of iron or

coal, until they are coined and their value

established by law. Thus we see why

412)4 grains of silver will pay a debt of

one dollar any where in the United States

of America, when 420 grains will not. It

is the " fiat" of the law that makes all

money ; and that power of the law is limited

by the boundaries of the nation that

makes it. Our gold and silver coins are

not money among any of the Eistern nations;

but it will sell for what bullion is

worth in the market, just as wheat or any

other product does.

" Does Mr. Hall consider his bonds,

mortgages, or notes of no more value to

him than tbe cost of the paper on which

they are written, cr printed ? Does he

consider the bonds of the United States of

America worth no more thai: the cost of

the material, aud the expense of printing?

I quote his language: "Such, too, is

the true measure by which all commercial

values are determined, including 'fiat

money' which has not and never will have

any greater value, than the material on

which the denominations are printed.'

But after all his illogical and unsound theories,

'for the edification of your readers'

he virtually concedes his error, on the

pointof intrinsic value, by saying: "When

coin is not desired, in exchange for bullion,

certificates convenient for currency should

be substituted therefor," which, according

to his statement in regard to 'fiat

money.'can never have more value than

the "material on which the denominations

are printed." He says that the basis,

which he has laid down for "establish'

ing the value of coin, is the principle by

which nil commercial values are established."

Xow I want to ask Mr. Hall " how we

farmers can possibly

accumulate any

wealth, if our products must be sold in

the market only for the exact cost ot raising

and marketing them." Here, too, he

is in error. The price of what is produced

for the markets of the world is regulated

on the principle of supply and demand.

When the market Is overstocked,

prices will be low, aud when there is not

enough to meet the demand, prices will

be high. These facts are well established

by every producer's experience, as Mr.

Hall admits, in regard to the purchasing

power of money.

O my! how everything baa changed

feince I was sweet sixteen,

When all the girls wore homespun frocks

And aprons nice mil clean;

With bonnets made of braided straw,

Tied olose beneath the chin,

And shawls laid neatly o'erthe neck

And fastened with a pin.

But now-a-days the ladies wear

Such high three-storied hats,

With feathers running all around

To cover up C e flats,

Then frocks that fall so very low

And trail a yard behind.

They 'remade thegiddy for to catch,

Yet sometimes catch the blind.

And then to think that some young girls

Will almost faint away

If they arelefttosit alone

In wagon or In sleigh:

And as for getting pa his meals,

Or helping ma to bake,

Ob'. that would spoil their lily hands

From baking "aDgelcake."

When snow would fall I was so pleased.

And how n v heart did nutter,

As each beau took his sweetheart ont

Sleigh-riding in his cutter;

But when the storm was bleak and cold

The girls and beans together

Would meet and hare a good straw rid^

In spite of wind and weather.

But now, Indeed, it grieves memnch

That I am forced to mention,

However kind a young man's heart,

Or honest his Intention,

He dare not ask a girl to ride

But such a war is waged 1

That if he sees her more than twice,

Why! they must be engaged.

Land sakes! what are we coming to ?

Is what I want te know.

How do the girls expect to have

A sensible young beau ?

Whene'er they get a nice youug man

They cut too great a dash,

And then thegrand result soon comes

A universal crash!


A Tale of the Rocky Mountains.


Half way from Leadville to the plains—

half way, and by a new trail running into

the southwest and down along the canyon

of the Platte; half way only, and my horse

worn, my food gone, and night close at

hand. .Night in February—death, cold!

I wrapped my blanket yet closer about

my shoulders, and urged my steed forward

through the gloaming.

"Curse my luck!" I muttered.


for Black Dan's threat I would have gone

by the stage in comfort. And yet, to have

to brave his gang would have been certain

destruction. I'll warrant they've ambushed

the night coach, intending to catoh me

But I've slipped them this time, and Uncle

Sam has the proof that he wants at

last. Three days more, my rascals, and

you'll jump these mountains or wear handcuffs,

if I reach Pueblo alive."

I shook Charley's reins to hasten his

speed, and whistled cheerily to Don, my

St. Bernard.

"We must reach Johnston's ranch on tne

Platte, old friends, or sleep out, and it's too

cold for that," I muttered.

I was returning from a search for certain

desperadoes wanted in the courtsat Pueblo.

The cut-throats had hidden in the mining

camps about Leadville, and my search

had been a long one. F : nding them at

last, however, and the proof of their crime

with them, I was about to return and

make arrangements for their arrest, when

by some unknown means they learned whe

I was, and I fled. Fled, pursued by th

wrath of the worst man between the Gunnison

and Denver—Black Dan. Had he

found me my life would not have been

worth a toss of a card. I must reach the

settlements quickly and return with a

force in order to capture my game, and

that without delay.

In the gloaming of the morning I had

begun my perilous horseback journey; in

the gloaming of the evening I was continuing

it. No soul had met me along the

wagon trail, and I believed that I had

tricked my enemies.

The blackness of the canyon crept up,

the narrow trail ran down, and among

great masses of boulders, across patches ol

snow, and again along the bare earth, I

followed with watchful eye the indistinc

path until, just at the verge of the las.

steep descent that should carry me into tin

river gulch I halted a moment to rest my

weary horse.

"Only a little further, Charley," said I,

dismounting and patting his droopinjr

head ; "a couple of miles more and we'll

strikesupper and a bed. You've done well,

old boy, saved me—

A sudden fierce growl from my dog, ashe

sprang toward the shadow of the pines

behind me, a single lance of light, a ring

ing report, and without a moan I threw

my hands quivering into the air, whirled

heavily away from my horse and fell.

Black Dan had found me.

* * * * * * *

Slowly, and with great pain, consciousness

returned—consciousness, for my brair

was still alive, but not personally, for ol

my body I knew nothing.

What had happened ?

Laboriously my mind traveled througr

the midst of death that still surrounded ii

Slowly one idea followed another until a;

last came the knowledge that I sought. 1

had been waylaid and shot.

Yes, I remember now. Remembered thf,

cry of my dog, the ring of a rifle, the shee'

of flame, the blow of the ball, and thennothingness.

I had been shot and was dead.

And yet not dead, for pain revived, ant?

dead men feel no pain. I was shot but no;

dead. And so came at last the conscious

ness of matter. I still lived.

I sought to rise, but could not, for I waf

Where was I ? What was the trouble J

Nearer and still nearer came the truth a:

I groaned in spirit and struggled to gaii.

nearer, until with a mighty effort, throwing

off all lethargy, I made one desperate at

tempt to rise; but the damp weight ol

newly-turned earth pressed upon my heart

the clinging bands of newly dug ear 1 ,

bound me, and with a wiM cry «*f horror

and despair I recognized my situation— I

was buried alive.

I did not faint at first—life was too dera

—but lay simply deadened, crushed by the

blow, the loose mould admitting air foi

my respiration, my poor stunned brain

rolling these words up and down: "Buried

alive! Buried alive!" until from sheei

madness and loss ot desire knowledge fled

s, second time.

iuid then it was the tongue of my dog

that awakened me. Don dug me out and

lapped e back to life again.

As the dull gray of the winter's morning

ddwncd, with groans I dragged my stiffen

cd 1; \bs from my narrow bed, and crept

treublingly down the trail toward thi

river, the blood oozing from a hole in my

head, my eyes wild and fierce, my hear!


nxy life half none.

As I thought, Black Dan must have followed

and ambushed me, then, supposing

me slain, he had the grace to bury me. It owing to his haste or carelessness that

my dog had been able to paw the loose dirt

from my grave, and save me.

If I could reach Johnston's ranch I

might live; if not, I had been saved but to

die a second time, for a fierce storm was

brewing along the mountain tops above

my head. My horse was gone, my rifle,

pistol, knife, gone ; only the dog remained,

and faithful to the last, followed as I slowly

and painfully trod the descending trai 1

>u the direction of the river.

Suddenly amid a wild roar of wind and

oreaking of trees and whirl of freezing

snow, the storm burst, and in its fu*y

swept me from my feet, and rolled nte,

crying and shouting, far down the canyon

side, until a great boulder caught and held


Then it raged on.

Fierce and relentless the wind tore

through the forest, pitiless and cold the

snow fell, and except I had dragged my

broken and bruised body into a cravesse

of the ledge, I had died where I laid.

Then even blacker than eyer fell the storm,

and raged unceaseingly through all the

slow hours of the day, until night came a

second time to cast its pall on the scene.

And as tho darkness crept up from the east

my dog, who all the day had laid at my

feat, deserted mo, speeding away through

the shadow and snow. I was alone-

And so, faint, wounded, cold, despartng,

as the moments grew lifo flickered,and

when at last midnight broke my lamp went

out. Aagain I lay unconscious.

All night the gale continued, and not

until tho dawn of the second day did it

erase, when the newly-fallen snow lay

deep and white over all.

Within tho deep crevesse of the rock,

thelteted from the cold white death, and

vi t beneath it, I lay motionless Above me

the storm had spread a shroud so thick

that no ray of light penetrated to my tomb.

Half frozen, in a dreamless, painless sleep,

among the pines or tho tread of the wild

boasts of the forest overhead mattered

uaiight to me. Wheu my eyes opened thov

beheld nothing, when my hands were out-

*tretchcd tli^y touched only the stone and

the snow, whSfr my tongue cried out no

sars listened. Again I was entombed, and

tuis timo by an enemy more relentless than

Black Dan even, by bands more stern and

pitiless than his. Fate and the storms of

tne mountain combined against me. 1 was

buried a second time, but uow with death

Ibr a companion.

I knew that I could not escape, and the

very thought quieted me.

There was no struggle, no moaning, no

agony; only a dull recklessness and want

of cars forlife that betokened the depth

of my despair. I was dying. Slowly the

moments passed. My thoughts were few

and simple—thoughts of fire and flood,

thoughts of home and friends and comfort,

thoughts of things warm and bright, but

eveu these were fading and my mind was

wearily wrapping itself in the cloak of.

annihilation, and my body was sinking toward

inanition wh«n a bit of snow fell upon

lny upturned face.

Had it been fire it could not have aroused

me more quickly.

Tho next instant more fell, and still

more, and then light begauto gleam, and I

heard the hurrying scrape of feet mingled

with low whining.

Don had returned and was digging me


The revulsion of feeling was terrific. A

moment before I had laid passive in a

tomb, looking for death, now I fought and

tort at the loosening snow like a madman,

mad with the thought of life.

Nearer and nearer came the rescuing

feet, deeper grew the pile of snow beneath

me, brighter the light above. The whining

was mingled with growls now. Don

had friends to aid him. The harrier was

but three feet thick—two—one, it was

gone, and even as I breathed the air of

heaven and my heart leaped within me

and my lips uttered a glad cry, a dozen

pairs of great hollow eyes burned into

mine, a dozen gaunt forms crouehed before

me gnashing their gleaming fangs. I had

been rescued by a pack of mountain wolves.

For a single instant I srftveyed my enemies—I,

weak, wounded and unarmed;

they strong, hungry and ferocious, a dozen

to one—and then with a jjell I sprang into

their midst.

It was the act of a madjaan, but I was

mad. Deaih should tear me limb from

limb now, and with brave hands I clutched

at the first grey monstar before me, and

grasped his shaggy throat as with hands

of steel seeking to throttle him.

Then the entire pack with demoniacal

howls hurled themselves upon me.

The struggle was short. I felt the hot

breath of the brutes in my face, their red

mouths yawned upon me; their strong

:Iawstore my bnck-skin shirt; their teeth

snapped, when suddenly a great big white

something was hurled from the bank of

mow above into the rnidste of the melee.

A. half dozen dark forms followed. Wild

4iouts, mingled with pistol shots and

ieavy Wows, broke upon my ears, the red

)lood of my assailants dyed the spotless

snow ; their hideous eyes faded before me,

md falling backward, I felt myself caught

>y strong arms, and the well-known voice

of old Johnston cried, "Saved, thank God!"

Aye saved! and this time for life. My

rusty dog had found the ranch and arousng

the men by his strange actions; they
