A Washington dispatch of recent date says: Secretary Wilson of the department of agriculture proposes to make a determined elTort to devel op silk culture in the United States if congress gives him the $10, 000 he has asked for experimental work. Sec retary Wilson intends to begin his tests in several states, including Michigan and other states surround ing the great lakes. Silk is culti vated in Canada and the climate of Michigan is the same. Experiments will also be made in the South. Said he: "When congress authorizes a start 1 shall be ready to furn ish material for experiments in silk culture. The work is nearly all done in the spring, and if my plans carry, by next spring every member of congress will have fifty mullierry trees to give to his constituents."' The Banner has interviewed parties connected with the silk manufactur ing business in Belding to get their views upon the subject of raising silk here as proposed by secretarj' Wilson and finds they consider it rather ques tionable. It is not really an untried experiment by any means as it has been done for several years in some parts of the country in a small way. There seems to be only one thing standing in the way and that is that in preparing it for the use of the manufacturers a certain amount of hand labor is required and the ques tion is can we successfully compete with the Chinese cheap lalor. The cost of bringing it here helps to offset this in part, but will it be sutllcient to make it what Americans would con sider a remunerative business There is not much doubt but what it can be done all right if it can be made to pay, COINC TO CET MARRIED? If So Post Yoursflf So You fun An mwct Til ewe Question. "Not one out of a do.enof the ap plicants for marriage licenses come prepared to answer the questions pre scribed by law regarding their famil history," said County Clerk Lawless, after a half hotu's seige with a mar riageable couple who were endeavor ing to qualify for a liscense. The questions are: '"Your full name?" "White, black, mulatto or Indian?" "Age at last birthday?" "Your residence?" "Your birthpluee?" "Your occupation?" "Your father's name?" "Your mother's name?" "Number of times previously married?" These questions all have to be an swered for both bride and groom be fore the license can Ik issued, and the agony the bashful groom sometimes has to go through before he can recall, for instance, his mother-in-law's maiden name, is sometimes distress ing in the extreme. Another feature the applicant is in variably unprepared for, applies to a bride under 1 years In this case the law requires that the written consent of one parent or of the gaurdian shall be liled with the county clerk "prior to the issuance of a license for the marriage of a female under 18 years of age." Blanks for this purpose are furnished by the clerk and must be used The law also says: "This con sent cannot authorize the issue of a license for the marriage of any male or female under the legal marriage able age (male 18, female 10)." County clerks have no right to issue such licenses under any circumstan ces. Ionia Sentinel. Abounding Dmrovery.

He preached the funeral sermon of a man not long since and stated that the deceased had "joined the great majority." Later in his sermon he remarked that "many arc called but few are chosen," and now the bereaved widow will not recog nize the preacher. The Michigan Tradesman of last week issued an eighteenth anniver sary number of double the usual size and tilled with "good stuff." Editor Stowe has worked his way from the iKittom but has today one of the best and most influential trade papers in the United States. The Banner con gratulates him upon the success he has achieved and wishes him continu ed prosperity. One of the winter Industries of the Upper Peninsula is the cutting and shipping of Christmas trees. Charles Freckelton, of Iron Mountain, who is engaged in the business has just es tablished his camp near Floodwood. He will cut 50,000 trees this winter, all to lie shipped to Chicago. The trees are sold from the cars to the wholesale dealers. Christmas trees are cut from three to thirty feet in length, and thejr are all of spruce or balsam. This j-ear the crop will lie double that of former years. Those people who watch the skies after midnight on November 14 and 15 may be rewarded by the spectacle of a meteoric shower. Some astrono mers believe that the stream of me teors called the Leonids has a period of ."$4 years instead of 3.'J. These me teors were observed in IKVA so numer ous and bright that the southern ne groes thought the day of judgment had come. Again in 187 they were seen numerous and bright, especially by European observers. Now if the .'14-year period is the correct one, they are due this year in November, and this is somewhat the more probably, as they failed to appear last year. Those interested will do well to watch for them on the nights of the 14th and 15th. The Muir Tribune says: "Belding cannot be depended upon for a good big republican majority every elec tion unless the Republicans of that section are given proper recognition. There's more truth than poetry in that warning. Belding is the banner republican locality in the county, but if Belding republicans have not here tofore fared as well as they might at Republican county conventions they have been largely to blame them selves. Let them get together, pre sent a solid front In convention, and the Tribune believes they will have no reason to complain of results." We don't think the Tribune editor has a good memory. We ' have no recollection of any time the republi cans of Belding failed to stick to gether and to stand solid by any local candidate, but we have a distinct recollection of having been turned down.

"What's in a name?" Everything. Don't lets discuss the "servant girl'' question; but call it the inconvenient lack of assistant house-keepers, the merited appellation of their respon sible position. Our high aspiring lib erty loving people were so shocked at the servile condition of the negro slaves In the South that they arose and rebelled and amid warfare and bloodshed abolished this disgrace from off the fair face of free America, and yet have they adopted and do not hesitate to apply, that hated servile name of servant to the help that is oftimes as indispensible in the home, as in the oillce, mill or shop. No grander institution exists than the well kept properly disciplined home, no work more noble, of more lasting influence upon the character and dis position of future generations than the environment of a pure conscien tiously managed home life. This is the work that effects the everlasting man, and the right minded mistress of the home will le more particular in the selection of help in work that af fects the bank account of the busi ness man, for "what will it profit a man to gain the whole world and loose his own soul.'' The girl who takes a position in a store is called a saleslady, not a shop servant. Suppose the occupants of the various positions offered to women workers nowadays should be dubbed some ridiculous name with the same tenacity that "servant girl" is pasted on the one who comes into our homes to share the cares and duties of our home life. I am inclined to believe there would be a shortage in the bean mill of "dirt grabbers," in the school room of "urchin spankers," etc. The American girl who earns her living by any honest occupation is respected and called by her full Christian name. If you respect the girl who assists in the home, don't ignore her name and dub her Jones, Smith or Brown as the case may be, and don't call her your "servant girl." A free born Ameri can won't le called a servant. That's w,.Vl In a name.. K. II. Ellis. Two Happy Wedding. He v. J. J. Staley officiated at two weddings last evening, the first oc curring at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Green and the contracting par ties Vicing their daughter Miss Olah Green and Mr. Austin Hull. The ceremony tt ok place at 7:.'K) o'clock a number of relatives'and friends being present. The groom's sister, Miss Erma Hull, and Mr. Arthur Boss acted as bridesmaid and liest man respec tively. About a half an hour later the entire party proceeded to the residence of Mrs. Malissa Hull, where the ceremony was performed uniting in matrimonial bonds Miss Hull and Mr. Boss, the newly married couple standing up with them. After the usual hearty congratulations had been tendered the happy couples, all sat down to a line supper which had been prepared. All the parties are well known in the social circles of the city ; and will continue to reside here. The Bannkh most heartily tenders Its best wishes. The Youth's Companion in l!M)j.
