Yesterdny was a Mg one witli the Maceahees of Waslitenaw eounry. Saline was in jrala attire in honor oí the Mc eelebrafcion whicli was hi'Ul there. The Arbor Tent drill team left on the 7:45 oar yesterday, aceompa-j nied by as many more Knights and Ladies as could crowd jnto the car. The next car, at 8:45, was also well fllled with members, who, -went over to see the fun and to have a share in it. The drill team of the L. O. T. M. went by way of Pittsfield via the Ann Axbor road on the 7:20 train. The plans were to have the parade start on its line of march at 10 o'clock, but were delayed owing to the inability of the lodges from Manchester to reach Saline until nearly 11 o'clock. The drill teams of both the ladies' and gentlemen's lodges have reac'ned such a degree of military perfection that an easy victory in the prize drills which are oVie of the features of the Öay is predicted. The drill team of Arbor Tent is composed of the following men: W. H. Krapf, captain, W. A. Wenger, banner bearer, Arthur Perkins, George Richards, Fred East, Ernest Jliast, J. T. Shaw, Wm. Wiegand, Adam 'Neff, Harl'ow Gross, George Lutz, August Darrow, Emil. Hoppe, Alvin St. Clair, Jas. B. Saunders, jr., and Chas. -Swarthout, with M. H. Mills as substitute and Fred Bross 'as property man. Saline, July 31.- (Special.)- Thls is a sala day for the village, the town being full to overflowing with ruornbers of the various county tents and hives of the Maceabees and their friends. The l'acilities for entertaining a crówd are taxed to their utmost, but the ci'tiz- y are responding nobly and their reputation for hospitality will be further e nhaneed by the welcorne extended to ■their visitors today. The parade tuis morning was a large one and was viewed by a large coneourse who loudly applauded the varions bodies as they moved past. Manchester tent seemed to be the favorite of the crovd and proved to be that of the judges as they earried off the palm for being the best appearing tent in the line of march. At the business meeting of the County assoeiation ft was decided to hold the next meeting at Ann Arbor and a mid-winter meeting at Clielsea.
