A special meeting of tho city council was held at the council rooms Wednes day morning with all tho members present except Aid. Jersey, who is ab sent from the city. Hy special invita tion Messrs. M. M. and A. N. Holding were present. Tho matter of tho pur-1 huso of the tract of land along the river for a public park, for tho consid- ration of which the meeting had been called was taken up, and tho first ac tion was the rescinding of a certain resolution adopted at the meeting of Sept. loth, in which a committee was. named. A committee was appointed of the aldermen to select a new com mittee, and after a short consultation, they reported tho following names: Mayor Francisco, L. L. Holmes, II. J. Leonard, T. F. Ireland, Ilomaine Rob inson, E. H. Spencer, M. J. Uemorest. These proved satisfactory to all and the action was ratified unanimously. This being disposed of, some discussion was had regarding the improving and beautifying ot the park. The Messrs. Belding expressed a hope that it miijht be done as fast as possible and M. M. Belding again made tho offer, as heretofore stated when tho project first camo up, that he would personally give $100 for every $100 raised and ex pended upon it, either from the public funds of the city, or raised by private subscription ot citizens. Mr. A. N. Belding not to be outdone said that he would donate as much toward it as the three directors of the Citizens Light Co. combined, they having the benefit of the city lighting contract, and being upposed to be very much interested in tho city's prosperity. They therefore have the opportunity of making Mr. Belding come down pretty handsome if they choose. A meeting of the members of the committee abovo chosen was held Wednesday afternoon to consider the part which falls to them to perform. Some rather objected to giving a bond if the money was to bo divided and scattered about, but this was very hap pily arranged by Mr. Geo. W. Ellis of Philadelphia agreeing to tako the en tire sum, giving his note, endorsed by the Belding Bros., and paying five per cent, interest. This will give $.500 a year interest as long as the principal remains intact. This should bo more than siiHicient to pay the taxeB upon the factory to be built by tho Beldlngs but if other factories can bo obtained upon terms that seem to them advan tageous of course they will draw upon the principal, if necessary, as that is what it is for. And if there is a bal ance remaining on hand at tho end of ten years, it is to bo converted into the city treasury. Thus all tho preliminary steps to tho completion of this deal which means so much concerning tho future of our city have been taken and undoubt edly before this paper is in' tho hands of the reader the papers have been ex ecuted and tho thing consummated. As the Bannkk has said before wo be lieve that in this the city has taken a big stride forward and the future pros perity and growth never seemed to as sured as it docs at this minute. We haye always had confidence in it. but by this our confidence is renewed and strengthened. We otTer you tho toast: Belding, the Brightest, Best and Busi est little city on earth. The Belding Indians is tho name adopted by the high school football team. They pl.iyed Lowell last Satur day and beat them by a pcore of 17 to 0. Touchdowns were scored by Angell 1, Chapman 2.

Smith THIS AND THAT. Nhh From Here Mini There C'oiuleimetl For Our Iteadern. Greenville pastors will take a religi ous census to enable them to work moro thoroughly and systematically. Tho Ladles' Literary Exchango club will meet with Mrs. Louis C. Mil lard Thursday, Oct. 18th, at 2::i0 o'clock. Miss Pauline Westcottof Grand Rap ids an ordained deaconess is a guest at I)r, Morris's and assisting in the reviv al meetings. The Fere Marquette new, short lino road to Stanton will probably bo con structed after potatoes on tho right of way are harvested. Helen A. Newman continues her millinery display through the re mainder of the week. She has a lino stock of trimmed hats to select from, for both young and old. Rev. Wm. Judd, pastor of the Green ville Circuit, travels 2S miles every Sunday and preaches three times a day. Pretty hard work for tho salary he receives, in fact pretty hard work anyway. All members of Knights of Pythias should attend the meeting of Tuesday evening, Oct. lf, as business of import ance will come up relatUe to amend ing the constitution also relative to a new lodge room.

Then tho editor of the pa per took a vacation for three days. Court Stewart Xo. 57 I. O. F., will give a farewell social in the hall Satur day evening, Oct. 13, for Mrs. Shaft, who wtll soon leave the city. Members are requested to bring fried cakes, cako and sandwiches. Members of Court Watchful and their wives invited. A lady came all the way from Lake view the other day and brought her little boy to be photographed at King's studio. Such is the superiority of Mr. King's work that people come long dis tances to have work done by him. That is what he promised when he opened his studio here and it has proved true. Tho county fair was financially and otherwise a success. Tho management is to be congratulated. All the premi ums will be paid and all other obliga tions met faithfully, Friday republi can day beat the record for Fridays. It was a grand day for the republicans and a grand day for the fair. So there seems to bo no reason why wo should not all join hands, circle to the left and be happy. The republicans of the coun ty put their shoulders to the wheel aud made a heroic elTort to help the fair out. and themselves, all together the two in one. How wtll they succeeded Is a matter of record. It has gone Into history and needs no argument. It was a gorgeous, glittering, magnificent suc cess. The fair was tine, satisfactory to everybody, and surpassed only by tho republican parade and tho republican speeches. Ionia Sentinel. The way of the transgressor is hard. Onco again is the old truth exempli fied. It is but a few months ago, that Rev. C. F. Smith of Cannon township, and Miss Ola Terry one of tho young ladies of his llock, left honor, families and friends behind them and lied to dis tant parts. But evidently they could not get away from their consciences, for a few weeks ago she returned in a near ly insane condition and continues In that state according to reliable infor mation to tho Bannkk notwithstand ing reports that she had recovered. And the man too has not escaped the pangs of guilty conscience according to this from the Grand Rapids Herald of Tuesday. It says: "The following let ter was received by The Herald yester day morning, which speaks for Itself There was no date on the letter of either timo or place and from the post mark was mailed somewhere between New York and Chicago. To all that I have deeply wronged by act or inllu ence, with feelings of rcmorso I crave pardon for my sins. To my wife and children, to the ono whose young life I have blighted, whoso parents' hearts I have caused tho deepest anguish, to the Christian public whose causo I have re proached to all whom I have Injured by my Inexcusable sin, 1 humbly crave mere and forgiveness, and will do my utmost to redeem tho past and as far as possible make all wrongs right. Sin cerely, C. F. Smith. " THIS WEEKS BARGAINS!
