A pleasant note from Peter D. Martin who now lives at Coronado, Cal., renewing his subscription to the Ypsilantian for another year, suggests that he will not be allowed to compete in the Calla contest, but he is mistaken. The challenge was to the world, and his calla is admitted with a certified height of 6 feet. He says that callas bloom in that far away state all winter. He says also that the past winter has been the pleasantest he has spent there, there having been no frosts, and only 1/2 ton coal necessary to keep them warm. He slyly hints that these good times have come under Cleveland's administration, but doesn't say he's converted to his way of thinking. --Item from the April 25, 1895 Ypsilantian newspaper.
