THE BANNER MAN MAKES A THIRTY MINUTES VISIT At th KlchartUofl Kllk Mill Located, In or City. lUautlful Silks Heiiijr Made Keaily fur Market A Talk W ith theIyer What Is Going (hi About l's. RTF II HIT Y minutes is not a very long time in which to v i s i t an institu tion of theNfizo and importance of tho Richardson Silk Company, but there are. other days coming when perhaps more of interest can bo seen. Having heard in a general way of the increased popularity of Richardson's Fast Colors in embroidery silks, and that great changes had taken place in tho general lines of these goods the Banner made an unofficial visit to tho busy mills of the Richardson Silk Co. to see the goods and have explain ed the reasons for tho outlay of money for costly machinery to make embroid ery silks. It was explained to the Banner's entire satisfaction, that the demand for embroidery silks has attained higher altitudes tho past year than ever be fore in the history of the country. People, who never before were inter ested in doing embroidery work, are now its most devoted followers, while those who have attained high positions on account of their artistic ability in this lino of work have never been so overwhelmed with commissions as now. There is a class in this city now, who under the guidance of an experienced teacher, are converting linens and silk into center pieces, doylies, table scarfs, luncheon cloths, photograph frames, and tho thousand and one other things which are used alike for service and ornament. But the Banner digresses. Wo were visiting the place where the prin cipal part of fancy work is made, name ly the silks. First in order was a trip to the dye house," presided 'over by Mr. Crlpjven, who although asked tho same seeming ly foolish questions daily, always wears the same pleasant expression as he in forms you that it is something besides play, to dye three hundred shades of sewing silks, and nearly a correspond ing number in wash embroidery in twist, filo, giecian and rope, every shade of which must be absolute per fection in order to pass muster, and besides, must stand the test of washing which appears printed on tags on every skein of silk sent out. The test of a fast color is in rinsing it in tepid water using ivory soap. Every shade before being sent out, is tested so that by no possibility can there be any mistake. Some of the bhadings will stand the boiling test as was shown the Banner by Mr. Cripjxn, although this is not considered necessary, as any lady who valued her embroidery work, would hardly subject it to such indignity. Our half hour being nearly gono, wo only took a cursory glanco at tho room where the embroidery silks aro being labeled and prepared for market. 'Twas a beautiful sight, tho groaning tables covered with the beautiful color ed, shining silks, and were tho Banner man an artist he would like to repro duce, if that were possiblo, one of those tables covered with silks, on canvas. "How do the ladies who are not ex perts know what colors to use in mak ing tho different flowers':"' was the question asked, as the Banner turned to leave the fascinating display. He was told that the compauy had made ample provisions for just this emergen cy, by supplying its customers with a beautiful book, which has a beautiful name "A Bunch of Violets" which gives colored plates of different flowers and minute instructions for working all kinds of flowers. Then for those who want to see all of the shadings they have a complete color card which they send to anyone, with a book of instruc tions, for the actual cost of tho same, 12 cents. Tho Banner procured one of these and would advise its friends who are interested in embroidery work, to do the same. An exchange is fair in its criticism when it says that some people aro so anxious to avoid paying the home mer chant a legitimate margin that they believe any fairy talo told them by slick tongued frauds who aro entire strangers to them. Ninety-nine out of a hundred of these ''soft snaps" offered by these fellows aro swindles. The best plan is to patronize 30111 homo merchants. They i'lp the taxes and are citizens aflOng us. They aro responsible for the foods they sell, and can be found at anjj time should any thing bo wrong or tho goods not as represented. BELDING PUBLIC SCHOOLS. Tho Teachers' Association held at Ionia, Saturday, was largely attended. Tho many teachers present honored tho Belding Public Schools so much as to elect their superintendent, 'Mr. J. . VanWInkle, president of tho asso ciation for tho coming year. Miss Mablo Spencer, one of our senior pupils, was absent a few days this week. Sickness was the cause. Arthur Feck resumed his place in tho tenth grade, Wednesday, having recovered from a severe attack ot bronchitis. Wo aro very sorry to lose our school mate, Otie Kohn. Her health has obliged her to leave school. She en tered the ninth grade here, September '94, and was a faithful student all last year. Teachers and pupils extend their sympathy. Another accident occurred in the chemical laboratory last Thursday af ternoon, when, owing to the improper mixing of some chemicals, a little sul phuric acid entered Mr. Harry Camp bell's eye. Doctor Finkham would not allow him to study Friday, and Monday morning Mr. Campbfll could not see plainly out of that eye. Doctor Fink ham thinks, however, that his eye will bo all ritf ht in a short time. Miss Allen has kept her tenth grade pupils busy this week writing letters; invitations, friendship, news and bus iness letters all have received their share of attention. Two welcome additions to our school fixtures uppoared Wednesday. Thev were a mirror and a comb. If now a curling iron should by any chance ar rive, the non-resident girls could ride to school in a 6torm with great exulta tion; knowing that its disastrous effect on their artificial curls could be easily remedied. Sickness is sadly interfering with our school work. Three teachers, the Misses Stone, Everett and House were absent tho first of the week on its ac count. There is a girl in the eighth grade arithmetic who uses this expression: "I thought and I thought but I couldn't think." Miss Lulu Brown of Ionia and Mor ris Doylo of this place visited the high school, Friday afternoon. Claude Conner returned Monday, having been absent on account of sick ness. Carl Hoppough and Blanche Louse were absent Tuesday. Pretty bad storm wasn't it Carl. The Boston Rivals, November 15th, was well attended, as it certainly de served to be. A great many people of this city pronounced it the best con cert ever appearing here. Though every one was very delightful, Miss Vora Burpee, the elocutionist, was most appreciated. Her manner was perfectly natural, lacking all tho af fectation which comes from tho Delsarto system. Season tickets for the remaining attractions of this course may now be purchased for only eightv cents. Della Luscomue. Editor. Luella Wehster, Clayton Clemens. Emma Whitney, Reporters.

Attacked with epilepsy, ho was obliged to plve up his busi ness. Tho attacks came upon him most in opportunely. Ono time falling from a carri age, at another down stairs, and often in the itrett. Onco ho fell down a shaft In the mill, his Injuries nearly proving fatal. Mr. Gallahcr writes from Milwaukee, Feb. 16, '85. "There are none more miserable than epi leptics. For 20 years I suffered with epilep tic fits, having as high as five in one nlpht. I tried any number of physicians, paying to one alone, a fee of t"00.00 and have done little for years hut search for something to help me. and have taken all the leading remedies, but received no benefit.

Have had but two flu since I began taking it. I am better now in every way than I have been in 20 years."
