Samson, the well known druggist, to Mr. James Gifford, recently of Detroit, now an owner of an extensive ranch in southern Idaho. Many guests from Detroit and Chicago were present, and the wedding passed off very pleasantly. The young couple have the best wishes of scores of friends for their future welfare and happiness. Lightning made sad havoc, Tuesday, at the residence of Edward Gorton, a íarmer living near Ypsilanti. He, with a number of other men, had taken refuge in the barn during the storm, and when the lightning struck the building they were all prostrated, but none seriously shocked, excepting Mr. Gorton, who it was feared, for some hours, would not survive the injuries, but we understand he is out of danger now. The barn with all its store of a season's grain, hay, etc., was totally consumed. Mr. Edgar Comstock's horse, which was in the building, was killed, and his buggy burned. Taken all together it makes a serious loss to all parties concerned.
