years in this work I feel that I can be

everything about it is of the best, both in
materials and workmanship. Results
can be produced which will be a lasting
pleasure to all who are in any way con

photo for this cut was taken by
pason tones proper, in the Melodia, ti e
Stopped Diapason and Spitz Flute we
have the Flute tones; in the Viola and
AEoline we have the String and in the
Oboe the Reed. The Pedal Bourdon is
classed as a Flute tone. This organ is
capable in the hands of a master of a
great variety of combinations and is as
large as any church of this present or
prospective size will ever require.
"The case is dark mahogany with full
gold decorated front pipes and will be the
most beautiful front in the state.
"The pastor is certainly to be congrat
ulated for the wisdom shown in selecting
this particular action, as it is perfect in
every way and less likely to get out cf
order than any other action njw in use.
The committee has shown its good judg
ment, not only in its choice as to tonal ef
fects and architectural beautv, but in
purchasing from a firm whose business
methods, integrity and guarantee can be
accepted at their face value, which is not
always the case with some vho,presume
to build organs. As a matter of fact, a
great many churches with which the
writer has had business relations have
found this out after it was too late. As
a purely business proposition, no church
today can ifford to be wi-hout an organ
It adds to the solemnity cf the usual ser
vices, and. as this is an of music,
many lovers of the art iuc drawn to
where they can gratify the.r U:.us in this
particular. In any place where traveling
men have to pass their Sabbaths they
will invariably choose the place of wor
ship where they can hear the best music.
Churches are realizing this more fully the
past few years than ever before, and for
tunately, most any church today can have
financial aid to the extent of at least one
half the price of an organ by applying to
Andrew Carnegie, as I have had ample
opportunity to know, having erected otite
a number of organs in churches where
the people have availed themselves cf
gifts from this source. The Lyon & Healy

The Belding Foot Ball team have ad

players but something has always hap
pened to prevent their coming until last
Saturday when their husky bunch dropped
into our city prepared to carry off the
scalps of the local team but had reckoned
without their host as the local team which
had haci only a little practice, put up such
a stiff game that when the time was
called on the second half neither side had
succeeded in scoring a point. The local
team was considerably strengthened by
Vann Wilder of Ionia who came to help
our boys out. A fairly good crowd wit

Holy Trinity Mission is soon to lue a
home of its own, the ground having leen
broken for same the latter part c4 last
week. Smith Stanton has the job ex
cavation and will also build the foundation
on which the structure is to be placed.
The new structure will be 65x30 feet
and will serve the capacity of a church
house. There will be two rooms 9x15 in
front and a large room in the rearand a
chancel room added to the building proper
or in other words the body of the ohurch
The new building will not be dedicated
as a church but will be used by the society
for services and various church entertain
ments until such time as they are Ie, to
build and consecrate a church.
A rule of the church prohibits any thing
of a secular nature being held in the
church when in has once been consecrated
to God and the society being a little small
at the present time deems it expedient to
build a church house for the present time
and await the growth of the society to a
time when it will be able to errect a build
ing that can be consecrated and kept only
for services of the church. An eight foot
Basement, five foot in the ground and
three above, will make a handy arrange
ment for suppers and other functions of
the church. The wik of construction will
be pushed as rapidly as possible and the
members of the society are recieving much
encouragement from outside sources in a
financial way that gives them much hope
in the outcome. The Eureka M. E. Church
building recently purchased, has been
dismantled and brought to this city in good
condition and will go into the construction,
