He struck on hia head crushing it in and died after two hours of unconsciousness. -al tne last moment Ypsilanti decided to have a 4th of July celebration. There was a procession at noon, various kinds of races, an oration by C. K.Whitman, a dance in the evening and the usual display. The largest crowd of the day, unless it was for the fireworks at night, was at about 7 o'clock, when a couple of boys jumped from the topof Congress street bridge into the river. - The feat was accomplished three times, and there was something quite thrilling about it. The Ypsilanti City Band furnished excellent music all day. Ypsilaxti, July 7. Editor Archjs- Dear Sir : In your last issue I noticed you were advising our enterprising Mayor to invest his salary in Ann Arbor real estáte. This I consider unfair, for you have the Grand Tfunk Eailway assured, while we who are tryiug to work up a shoe factory here have had a committee working for a week to get the loan of that dollar. Don't take all from us.
