Editob Aeous : The Bed Ribbons of this place held a meeting at Union School Hall last eveuing, which proved to be the most enthusiastic of auy yet held here since the organization of the club. The hall was fllled to overflowing : both entrauoes were thrown open and crowded full, many going home uuable to obtain even standing room. The meeting was addressed by a number of the Ann Arbor " boys," who were here about flfty strong. Most of thom " knew how it was themselves," and although none claimed to be public speakers yet I doubt ïf eloquence could have produced the marked effect upon the audience that the aimple recitals of their own sad experiences, which seeuied to come frora the heart, prcduced. Some of the Ypsilauti boys were present and spoke. Mr. Thompson, of Ypsilanti, favored us with a very appropnate song. for which he was loudly cheered. At the conclusión a large number ot our citizens, some of whom were hard drinkers, put on the red ribbon. A vote of thauka was tueii tendered to the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti boys for their presence with us, and for their eartiest work in behalf of the cause of temperance. The meeting was dismissed with the benediction, and the auilitmce went home delighted with the evening's work. Saline, April 23, 1877. R. Trunks !
