He has a brother who Is practicing medicine at Belleville, who also worked his way through the Detroit Medical college. Mr. Kellogg came here a few weeks since and opened up law offices in the Newcomb block on Main street. .

Mr. and Mrs. Kellogg have the good wishes of their many friends here and throughout the state.


The Inman will case, which has been before the circuit court at Monroe, came to a very speedy close, the judge taking the case out of the hands of the jury. The estate amounted to about $2,000 and the will provided that the residue, after paying the expense of Miss Inman's last sickness and her funeral, and several bequests of $1 each, should be used to erect a monument. John W. Blakeslee was appointed administrator of the estate. The will was probated in the regular manner, but the few relatives were not satisfied with her bequests of $1 to each of them and contested. After the arguments the judge took the case from the jury, ruling that as these relatives did not show that she was not mentally competent or that undue influence had been brought to bear upon her there was no reason why the will should not stand, and the was dismissed, with the heirs no better off for their trouble.

Many prominent people here and in this vicinity were summoned as witnesses and about 25 people went from here to Monroe Monday morning, thus entailing a very considerable expense, most of which will be paid out of the estate. Attorney Seth C. Randall, of Ann Arbor represented the administrator.
