. arried in the Dar.
4out twenty yars -ago there
liveil in Central Michigan a curions
old behedict fttid DddVoth. At
the age of fifty he married a girl of
1tht, nfd when the burden of sixty
fybis bore him down his wife was
on half his pge, Dodsworth was
noted f. r his peculiarities, but the eli*
max came wIen he found himself on
his dying bod. IIe was worth about
$30,000, arid he hadn't a blood re
lativ I.iving so far as b knew., le
walifed to Jdavo his prope,rty to his
wife, As the pair' Jid lived very hap.
pily,,but yet lie cou14 nA leave it
without disllaying 3ome of his pecu
liarities in the piovfisioiis ot the will.
8oire old men di6blay a mcan spirit
when makiAng their wills, and draft
in a provision cutting the w.fe -off
with a shilling-if she mor,ies pgain.
The old man wasn't of that stamp.
His young wife was good looking,
vivacious and fond if society and, it
was folly to suppose she woau rourij
for her "late departed" any great
length of timO. Thefore Mr. Dods,
worth turned lcel on the usual cus
tom and said In his *Il:
"In case my wife Celia does not
take unto herelf another husband
vithin thirteen inonths from date
of my burial, all bequests otherwise
made in this will are to revert to the
816e' i-1011fig6n, to be vsed for
building and furnishing a home for
Whether Celia was pleased or"il
Olensed at this provision 4Oeponelt
saith not, but the old man had not
been' under the sod more than six
months when the widow was said to
be looking out for another man. . If
it was siingklar for the dying Duds
worth to urge his wile to marry
again, it was still more singular that
he should desire thne ceremony to be
pei fo0rwmed under the following cir
"And it is made incumbent on
said Celia Dodswvorth, that in taking
a new husband, theo marriage cere
manny shall be performed in the big
barn on my farm, on the I- roa~d.
It alhall take place at 10 o'clock in
the evening, on the main floor, wvith
out lights of any description, with all
doors shut, and a free invitation shall
be textended to all. The clergyman
shall stand in the stables, and the
bride and groom on the gain floor,
and the p)rincipnl parties to the cere
mnoney shall be dressed in black
A wILLING wIDoW.
Thle widow announced her inten
tion to faithfully obey in spirit and
letter; the, will was probated, and
the twelfth~ month had scarcely pass
ed before'she issued an invitation for
rhe& ITitih to attend a wedding at the
barn. Just who the groom was to
hbe-no -eno could possibly assert, as
the widowv bad been keeping comn
pan1y with a widower', a bachelor and
two young men, and as far as any
outsider could judge, sheo loved one
r.s well as the other. Being good
looking an~d talented, and haiga
for tune behind her, it w as not st range
that she should have a numnber of
enitors. She seemed to enter into
the spirit of the affair with great zest,
agi adso did the milnister'; and to fur
ther mistify the people in attendlance,
the bride entered the barn alone at
one door, the groom alone at another,
and' no otie knew that the minister
had arrived until his voice was heard
in the stables.
BOUND IN THlE DARK.
There were at least 200 people
p)resent, and each one understood that
even the striking of a match would
break the will. Many jokes were
passed and considerable confusion
existed. But at length the minister
announced that all was ready. The
ceremony was gone through with,
and at its conichisioni, the affair hav
ing been. a "profound success, a rush
was made for the bride; she was
kissed by a hundred meni and then
carried home, a distance of a d6ile
and a half, in a big arm chair.
WHO IS THa HUSBAND?
.Now comes the mystery. When
the lady was set down at her own
door the widower, the batchelor and
the two young men each claimed to
eb haer true and lawful husband.
No of the crowd could say whno
w4etuocy man, the-minister was
art sea, apd thne bride hierself seemed
to hJave doubts. The widower was
- .*. 4
the man of her oboice, but In the
confustribe cotod haTd[%q lu
tied asiae, aind i did hrM that
an attompt was made to choke him
and get him ot of the barn. The
batchWlr v*w&4 *a abe bodipran
ished to marry him, as also did both
young men, and each one was sure
that be bow the Wid9o'is plump isp
and was legally mrried to her. The
four men bad ii gt, but that didn't

to the'widow Dodsworth that night
in t lie big barn. An other of the
parties live in Clinton county, and
he has time and again asserted
that he is the woman's true and law

bachelor is dead, but were lie alive

The different editions of THE SUN during
the next. year will be the same as during the
year that has passed. The daily edition will
on weak days be a sheet of four pages, and on
Sundays a sheet. ot eight pages, or 56 broad
columns; while the weekly edition will be a
sheet of eight pages of the same dimensions
and character that are already familiar to our
The Sun will continue to be the strenuous
advocate of reform and retrenchment., and of
the substitution of statesmanship, wisdom,
and integrity for hollow pretence, imbecility,
and fraud in the admIinstrartion of public af.,
fairs. It will contend for the government of
the people by the people and for the people,
as opposed to government by frauds in the
ballot box and in the counting of votes, en,
forced by military violence. It will endeavor
to supply its readers--a body now not far
from a million of souls-withi the most care-.
ful, complete, and t.rust.worty accounts of cur.
rent events, and will employ for this purpose
a numerous and carefully selected staff of re
port.ers andI correspondents. Its reports from
WVashington, especially, will be full, accurate,
and fearless: andl it will donhbtless continue to
deserve and enjoy the hatred of those who
thrive by plunderling the Treasury or by
usurping what the lawv does not give them,
while it. will endeavor to me)rit the confidence
of the public by tefendinig the righmts of the
people against, the encroachments~of unjusti.
The price of the daily Sun will be 55 cents
a tmonth or $6 560 a year, post. paid, or with
the Bunday edition $7 70 a year.
The Sunday edition alone, eight pages,
$1 20 a year, post paid.
The Weekly Sun, eight pages of 56 broad
columns will be furnished during 1877 at the
rate of $1 a year, post paid
The benefit of this large reduction from the
previous rate for T1he WVeekly can be enjoyed
by inidividual subscribers without the neces
sit,y of making up clubs. At the same time,
if any of our friends choose to aid in extend
ing our circulat ion, we shall be grateful to
them, and every such person who sends us ten
or more subscribers from one place will be
ent itled to one copy of the paper for himself
without charge. At one dollar a year, post
age paid, the expenses of paper and printing
are barely repaid; and, considering the size
of the sheet and the quality of its contents,
we are confident the people will consider The
Weekly Sun thc cheapest newspaper publish..

very best. Address,
