Hunting for Bail

"George Crum, from Ypsilanti, who had defrauded the Ann Arbor grocers out of provision to feed the hungry fair-goers, was allowed to hunt for bail. In order to make a systematic search he and his family left Ypsilanti last Friday, and they are now probably grubbing for a pot of gold about the roots of the twining woodbine.--[Ypsilanti] Commercial.
