Ypsilanti Club Disbands

The Ypsilanti Club is a thing of the past.  They held a meeting last night and concluded to sell off their property consisting of furnishings fro rooms which they occupied and which consists of some very nice furniture and will be sold at a sacrafice.  The club occupied room in the Pounstone building over the Rushville Laundry and as soon as their effects are sold off, and the rooms vacated, they will be occupied by the laundry which  has been crowded fro room for some time.  (Rushville Republican, March 26, 1904)
