A new telephone wire has been put up between this place and Ann Arbor this weck. The same wire will connect this place with Mooreville and Milan, the work to progress as soon as the poles arrive. This second wire has become necessary because of the increase of business, and there has been so much "talking" from Clinton, Tecumseh and Adrián- all of which had to pass over one wire- that Saline would often have to wait almost hours before she could get the use of the wire.
