Genuine oration fitch Sales Copy Pap of Saline's First et Reviewed Here Publication pf March 29, 1873, Contains Interesting- items of Local Affairs. We were treated to a most pleasant surprise the otner oay, when George Burkhart loaned The Observer for inspection a copy of the first issue of the first newspaper to be printed in Saline, published Saturday, March 29, 1873, D. B. Sherwood, Editor and Proprietor. The paper carried eight regufar columns to the page and was approximately 26 inches in length. It is headed in a very dignified maii""*er with the name Saline Review, tlie* two words being separated by a picture of the seal of Michigan'. j Directly beneath the seal the editor ' proudly exhibited his policy, "Independent in Politics, and Everything Else." In an important position on i the page, the first news column on the left, the editor proceeds to lay 1 out his policy under the heading} i "Announcement," and fires at * the • ' poor Salinites of the day full change ; in the opening phrase, "When Soph- pcles and Euripides wrote tragedy," and after a long and flowery prologue devulges the soi-inn secret that, The Saline Review will be independent in pohtics and "everything wrestling with his first moustache, is going to name it after two celebrated baseball teams, because there are nine on a side," Another side- splitter reads like this, "Alas, I am no more." ejaculated Phoebe Jean, the other evening, after the marriage ceremony had been performed. Despite its differences in make-up, style of writing, cuts and headlines in comparison with the modern newspaper, we sometimes wonder when we stop to think of -how the printers of early days spent hours of labor picking each small piece of type from the cases and placing it in line. Then when we look over a fine specimen, such as this. Saline Review. of 1873, we are forced to hold himin our highest esteem through the evidence of his artistry, breadth of hnbwledge and desire to benefit mankind shown in its pages.

Sample enabled the bridgewater Savings* Bank" to "reopen, its doors tc the public, .and -gives Waschtehaw county a i'00% r ecOrd in the number of banking institutions which reopened after adverse *e"conomie ;condi- tions had forced them to close their doors. The other two were the local Savings Bank and the Ypsilanti Savings Bank. Declaring that the people of Bridgewater and vicinity have illustrated what the real meaning of the word trust is, Judge Sample complimented officers and directors of the bank on the faith and determination which had made possible the reopen ing of the institution. He congratulated Roscce O. Bonisteel, who represented the bank, Sid. A. Erwin, assistant state attorney general, representing the state banking department, Theodore A. Stimpson, temporary receiver, and Rudolph E. Reichert, state banking commissioner, on the cooperation they showed in making the-act possible. That the people of the community and its vicinity iad faith in the bank is evident from the percentage of de-. positors who signed the agreement which, reopened the bank. Of the depositors, 98.34% signed the agreement, Mr. Stimpson testified. The agreement was similar to the one used here by the Saline Savings Bank. The stockholders raised tha sum of 525,000 to reopen the bank. Mr. Stimpson has consented to ie- main With the bank as cashier until the first of July, and possibly may be persuaded to remain longer.
