The High School have been very successful in the disposal of tickets for the Peet Brothers' entertainment at the Opera House Monday, Feb 9, already a good house is assured, which only goes to show that the people of Belding are eager, both to patronize a company of real merit and to assist the students in their earnest struggle to pay the balance of the debt on the piano, which has been almost entirely paid for by their diligent efforts. Tals company appears tomorrow evening in Greenville where they played last season to a crowded house and today enough tickets have been sold to fill the S. R. O. point for to morrow nights entertainment there. These calls for numerous return dates should prove to the satisfation of everybody that this a company of musical merit, it is seldom equalled and a cause deserving the liberal patronage of all. Tickets on sale by High school students and a few good reserved seats are left which may be procured at Hotel Belding, In speaking of the Gridley Club banquet the Portland Observer re marks: Nothing which could have been done for the comfort and pleas ure of Beldlng's guests on this occa sion was left undone, and no money was spared to make the event just what was promised in advance the most successful meeting in the club's history. Belding certainly did herself proud on that occasion and if she could hear the compliments which have been heaped upon her she would have considered herself amply repaid for all the trouble and expense she had been to in entertaining such a gathering. Belding republicans made the brill iant past of the Gridley republican club look like thirty cents, Friday evening. They had as their guests nearly 800 republicans of this county and cared for them all without confu sion. The hall was beautifully decor ated asjwere the tables, and the ban quet surpassed anything of the kind ever attempted in the county. Through it all those who have been most actlye in promoting its success were becomingly modest and a Strang er would have believed the affair was just an ordinary one for the silk city. Portland Review. Call For Temperance Convention. Ionia, Mich., Jan. 23, 1803. Recognizing the liquor saloon as a continual menace to the home, the church and the state, we do hereby issue a call for the good citizens of Ionia county to meet at the Baptist church of Ionia, at 10:30 standard time, March 10. 1903, to organize the county along Anti-Saloon League lines. The purpose of this organization may be stated as follows: 1. To look after better law enforce ment in the county. 2. To provide for regular and sys tematic temperance work in the countv. 3. To influence the nomination and election of men who will enforce the law. 4. To secure the petition of one- third of the voters of the county to the Supervisors asking them to sub mit the question, "Shall the manu facture and the liquor traffic be pro hibited in the county of Ionia." While temperance men sleep, sa loons riot. We must awake aud or ganize and build sentiment and be all at it and always at it till we win. Strong speakers will be present to address both morning and afternoon sessions. It is earnestly desired that all friends of temperance, irrespec tlye of party or denomination, throughout the county, consider them selves delegates to this convention. It is expected that every minister in Ionia county will sec that a strong delegation ol solid men and women are appointed to attend this conven tlon. Ministers are ex-ofllclo mem iers ot tne convention, ah are ex pected to be there. Let temperance business men understand that funer als, fires and Anti-Saloon conventions must be attended, wnatever may come, even if their stores have to be closed, for a day in order to do it. The ladies will furnish a warm dinner at the church. This call Is leing signed by hun dreds of prominent voters in the county. If you are in favor of the call for the convention, write Dr. W. (. Hubbard, Supt. of the Mich. Anti- Saloon League, Lansing, Mich, and your name will be added to the call Myntrrloua ClrcumatAoc. One was pale and sallow and the other fresh and rosy.
