When the road was h'rst talked abont many of the people laughed at the idea, bnt Mr. Glover and Mr. Hemphill were uot to be daunted. While the people of Ann Arbor were talking they acted. They sccured the franchises, bonded the road and built it. Mr. Glover has been heard to say that the completion of the road was the one thing he was the most proud of -having done for Ypsilanti. And everyone who is conversant with Ypsilanti affairs knows that Mr. Glover has done much for the upbuilding of that city. The city officials of Ypslianti and the village officials of Saline are to be given a jnnket over the road and a fine time will undoubtedly be enjoyed on tnis occasion.
