Mr. Scott Burgett, the clever banker and his wife were united in marriage twenty-seven years ago and Monday morning, when the preacher Rev. W. S. Calhoun, of Tuscola, who united the happy couple was in the city, Mr. Burgett took him into the Root Bros. Store and presented him this best hat that he could buy, telling him that he did a good job the knot never having slipped a particle. The present was very thankfully received and the Tuscola pastor returned home with a bran new "tito" on his head.
