Venison and Sneaky Saloons

News tidbits from the November, 27 Ypsilanti Commercial.

A drunk staggering around in the street tipped off police that no fewer than three saloons were secretly open on Sunday. The four saloonkeepers were arrested: George Letter, Anson Wright, and misters Smith and Fulton.

A 150-pound deer carcass shipped down from the U.P. was among the venison hung up in P. Grant Voght and Edward Rogers' butcher shop at 127 Michigan Avenue. Hunter and Ypsilanti funeral director Jay Moore brought them down and apparently sold them to the shop. Strange to think of shooting a deer and hauling it over to, say, Kroger's today...
