Holland Union Benevolent Home to Be
Opensd Next Week.
If the number of charitable homes in
the city are to serve as an indication
Grand Rapids is one of the most char,
itabie cities in the world. There are
homes for the agod, homes for the
orphans, homes tor children, homes
and Hospitals, homes for fallen women
and a home for the old soldier.
ixt week a new home will be
opened at the corner of College avenue
and E$t Bridge street, which, while
not as imposing as some of the other
homes of the city, will do a grand work
no doubt, as it is to be conducted by a
clan of people most humane and kind
to the poor ana aged. It is (be Hol
land Churches home, which is now be
ing fitted up in a cozy manner for a
home for the aged of their denomina
tion. Tne house 5s roomy enough to ac
commodate twelve persons, andis be
ing fitted with new furniture through,
out. Plain but substantial carpets
cover the floors, tasty paper adorns the
walls and a few appropriate
picture are bang in the tni'n rooms.
The home is located at the northwest
corner of College avenue and Bridge
street, in a house formerly occupied by
Sergeant Webb of the police force. It
stands far tack front tee street, with
fine old oak trees covering the spacious
lawn. Back nf the hone is a large
barn, which will be moved up to tne
house and addd to it when the pres
ent home nefds to be enlarged. C. A.
Vsrtder Veere ami wife are in charge
of the home and will be in charge
when it is opeoed. The doors will be
thrown cpen to tbe public the latter
part of ntt veck.
The plan of havmr such a home was
first proposed by th Rev. A. Kncxr.1,
who communicated hi desire to mem.
ber of his own church and then to
weiubersof other churches. The result
was the formation ot the Hollaed
L'uion Benevolent a&ociauon about
t ne year ago. Tne efheers are: Presi
dent, the RiT. A. Krickaard; treasurer,
J. A. S. Verdier; as taut treasurer. J.

Sued the City on a Patent.
Nathan D. Ross!of Peru, Ind., began
suit in the United! States circuit court
m equity jTef terday against the city of
CI rand Rapids. Roes claims that the
contrivances used in tripping the en
gine house doors in this city are an
infringement of si patent procured by
Robert Bragg, but assigned in 1SS5 to
I. C. Walker. In September last these
patents were assigned by Walker to
Ross. He therefore brings suit to have
tho city enjoined: from using the con
trivances now in use or to pay a
roraltr for the use of them. This is
the suit which has been threatened for
more than a year.
