Evening subject, ' The secret and the criterion of a successful lile." Anthony McReynolds, who lived in Ann Arbor about four years ago, died at his home In Cleveland, Ohio, last Saturday morning. He was born in the north of Ireland in 1804, was educated for the ministry and preached for several years in the Presbyterian faith. Lter on in lire he united with the Unitarian church. He left a will bequeathing all of his property- gome $10,000 it is estimated- to a Mrs Richmond, at whore house he was residing at the time of hu death. A singular circumstance is the fact that on Saturday morning two of his Ann Arbor friends each received a letter from hiin bidding them good-bye, and stating he would he cold in death when they received his letter. His death resulted from natural causes, however. It is with much regret that we have to chronicle the death of Mrs. Edward E. Appleton, formerly Miss Ellen Sill, of Dexter. She died at her home in Detroit, on Friday, the 16th, of typhoid pneumonia, after only a wnek's ïllnees, aged 41 i years. Her remains were brought to the home of her brother, George S. Sill, in I Dexter, Saturday, and services were held Monday from the M. E. church, Rev. J. i C. Wortley, of Wayne, preaching the 1 funeral discourse. Mrs. Appleton's death i vas a shock to the people of Dexter, ' unong whom she was born and grew to i womanhood, and who held her ia the 1 highest esteem. She leaves a husband to i mourn the loss of a faithful and i :lonate wife, and one child, to miss the ' :ender care of a kind and loving mother. '
