The Franklin House in this city has a new proprietor, or ratlier proprietors, being run by F. E. and L. M. Kellogg, recently of Dearborn, Mich. The Dearborn Advance give the new hotel proprietors the following send off: "Supervisor Kellogg and family left Dearborn Thursday morning for Ann Arbor, where they will take possession of the hotel known as the Franklin House. Mr. Kellogg and family came to Dearborn from Detroit in 1880, and settled on the farm now known as the Kellogg farm. Having made this their permanent dweiling place for 14 yea s, it was with sad hearts they left the old home, around which clustered so many experiences of joy and sadness, and the many friends they have in this locality. Mr. Kellogg was a hearty entertainer, and his house was always open to the entertainment of his neighbors and friends, and many are the happy and delightful gatherings that have assembled at his hearth and been welcomed to his well-filled table. Wednesday afternoon a large number of friends assembled at the home of the departing family to shake hands and say good bye. Al hough they tried to make the pai'ting a. matter of good cheer, it was a flat failure; and to suppress their heart-fielt sorrow they tried tó turn the occasion into loud laughter and merry jests. In fact, everyone had either to laugh or give way to their fellings. Mr. Kellog's experience in the hotel business many years ago will be of practical use to him now, and we join with others in wishing him success.
