The Masons of Ann Arbor can just ly be proud of their Temple, it is worth a trip there to see it." The Ypsilantian has this to say of our future fellow-cltizen: "Charley Whitman is removing his household goods to Ann Arbor this week. There are no church deaconshipa made vacant by Charley's departure, we belleve, but the removal of himself and family will cause vacancies in social and literary circles here that may not soon be filled, as they filled them. One of Charley's young friends recently remarked, that f the cry of 'Red Blood' should ere long be borne on the niglit windt from the northwest, it must not be taken as the forerunner or follower of some dreadful deed. It would result from the fact that Charley Whitman was playIng progressive euchre at Ann Arbor, was ahcad in the game, and was nmkiiig his pathetlc plea for the ringing of the bell." These marriage licenses do not alwayg prevent hasty weddings as the law intended, as an instance in this county provea. A j-oung man from the western part of the county carne to town a short lime since, procured a license to niarry a cerlain young lady, and polltely requested the clerk who made out the papers to keep the information to himself, which he did. Armed with the necessary papers he by some secret means informed hls sweetlieart of the fact. Then she told her lolks that glie wlshed to visit an unele in a ïifighborlng city and starled off ostensibly for her uncle's. But bless your heart she never went there. Hlie weut far enough to meet her lover, however, who was walting with his best horse and carrlage, and all rigged up In his soft rlotlies, and they proceeded to this city where a minister was found to make them man and wife. The young man was very happy; Ihe old man swore and ravcl, but all to no pui pose; the mother-in-law forgave; and the sweet young bride cried just enough to look liandsomer and sweeter than ever. And thus the intent of the law was successfully evaded.
