The Advance endman visited Adrian on Tuesday of this week, and was agreeably surprised to find there a very pretty and thriving little city. It has many substantial and modern business blocks, and busy business establishments. One thing that struck the writer as quite remarkable is that the town is without a lawyer, and as the citizens allege, consequently without law suits. In case of disputes between the denizens of that Utopia the matter referred to some well known business man for arbitration. Matters that cannot be so settled are taken direct into the district court.

One of the most genial men that the writer met at Adrian was Col. Slade, the genial and affable landlord of the city's leading caravansary. The Colonel is one of the pioneers of Adrian, and is a whole-souled gentleman whom it is a pleasure to meet. His hotel is very popular among traveling men.

The writer was shown through the extensive mercantile establishment of Mr. Becker, and was greatly surprised at the size of the store and the completeness of the stock. Mr. Becker's establishment is a vivid object lesson in what can be done by judicious and persistent advertising.

The farmers near Adrian are many of them engaged in stock feeding on an extensive scale. Ed Cooper one of the leading farmers, is feeding $30,000 worth of stock, and many others are each feeding several hundred head.
