A youug man named Frankenstein, wbo is known as the "Converted Jew", and who on Thursday evening of last week gave a very interesting aocount of his conversión at the prayer meeting in the Methodist chucrh, Ypsilanti, hired a horse at Yost's livery stable in that city, Friday afternoon, to drive to this city, stating that he would be back by 8 o'clock in the evening. He failed to retni-D and Mr. Yost received a note from him Saturday morning saying that he had been suddenly taken ill and was at the nuiversity hospital and if tbe horse was wauted to oouae after it. Mr. Yost started for Aun Arbor at once aud found his horse awaitiug him, but no trace of Frankenstein,. The youug man was at his boarding house fur breakfast iu his U3ual state of health and as the hospital was closed it didn't seem probable that he had graced it with his presenne tbe night before. Mr. Yost returned borne with his horse a very angry man and. with a warm determination that if Mr. Frankenstein can be got at he will try if the law will not üave a better effect in bringing him ! into the path of honesty than bis conversión from Judaism has. Frankenstein was arrrested at Grass Lake Tnesday and was brought to Ann Arbor by Deputy Sheriff Frank Staffan, of Chelsea. He was put in jail and will have bis hearing today. In addition to taking Mr. Yosf's horse, he defraucled John Wood, oí Ypsilanti town, of a pair of glasse?. He had thetn reset in gold frames at a cost of 9.25 at W. S. Oarpeuter's jewelry store. After leaving Ann Arbor he went to Dester and Grass Lake (where he was caught), rising the same táctica he had rith Mr. Yoat.
