Arnold Saph
"Losing His Memory - Arnold Saph was superintendent of the poor in this city for 29 years. Two years ago he retired and was succeeded by Nelson Roberts. Since that time Mr. Saph has been gradually losing his memory. He is unable to call by name or even recognize the men with whom he was associated for so many years. He has even forgot that he was once poor master and one day recently while standing in front of the court house he stopped a citizen and said: 'Can you tell me what building that is.' When told he expressed surprise and said that it must have been built recently. He cannot recall the fact that he occupied an office in the building for a dozen years or more. The old gentleman can be seen on the street ever day apparently in good health. His age is 88 years."

George H. Solis & Emma Grace Rooney
"The happy wedding of Miss Emma Grace Rooney and Mr. George H. Solis on Tuesday evening, 20th inst., chronicles the settlement in life of two of St. Clair's most popular young people, a matter in which they are most heartedly congratulated, especially so, as the arrangements do not take them away from St. Clair society. The young people are well known to the residents of our city, the bride being the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Rooney, and groom a rising young business man of the firm of Solis & Carpenter, and eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. George H. Solis. The ceremony occurred at the Congregational church, which was profusely decorated with ferns and flowers, and was crowded to the doors. The Rev. Watson B. Millard officiated. The bride was beautifully attired, wearing a pure white grosgrain silk princess gown, en train, and cream and white muslin de-soir over dress. Attended upon her was the maid of honor, Miss Celene Clare Trim of Ypsilanti, dressed in cream China silk, en train, with lace and ribbon trimmings; also four bridesmaids, Misses Frances Holbert, Pamelis Whiting, Blanche Morrill, and Elizabeth Rooney, attired in pink silk mull Josephine ___resses. The groomsman was Mr. S. A. ___Jasmund, and the ushers were Messrs, C. H. Jerome, Alva Bently, John P. Whiting, and Renben Moore. Mr. Francis Bacon presided at the organ, and played some excellent selections during the ceremony, the marches being the wedding march from Lohengrin and Mendelssohn's Wedding March. The bride received a large number of handsome and useful presents, fitting tokens of the high esteem in which they are held. Following the ceremony was a reception at the residence of Mr. T. J. Rooney, and an old time Virginia reel by the bridal party, after which the happy couple left for the east. On their return they will make their home with Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Mcqueen on Front St. for the present. Among those from out of town who attended the ceremony were Mr. and Mrs. Grant Carpenter, Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Hamlin, and Miss Florence Stewart, Chicago; Mrs. Porter Stewart, Miss Nellie Stewart and Mr. F. H. Jerome, Saginaw; Mr. Alva Bentley, Mr. EcEwen, Mrs. McConnell and Mr. and Mrs. M. H. von Jasmund, Detroit; Mrs. Jane Kinney, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Boice, Miss F. Boice and Miss Ella Plant, Port Huron. The Republican will therefore be fully sustained in extending the best wishes of St. Clair residents for the happiness and continued prosperity of the newly married couple."
