"Observer," in the Ypsilanti Sentinel, ín speaking of William Wagner, 8aI know of no business man who has been longer in business in Ann Arbor than Wm. Wagner.

By strict attention to business and fair dealing witbl hia fellow men, he has grown wealthy. He can look back upon nis business career with pleasure and pride. He (has been a model business man. He spent hia time during the day ín his store and his evenings with his family) at home. ne always knew where to find Wm. Wagner.

To the young men of Ana Arbor his successful career will prove one thing beyond a doubt, and that is, that Labor and Pluck are the invincible heroes who conquer success The glorious galaxy of successiul business men and illustrious authors have all been hard workers."
