Due to the increased cost of paper which has been raised from 20 to 40 per cent, newspapers all over the state, in cluding the metropolitan dailies and coun try weeklies, are raising their subscription rates. Many publishers find that they must either do this or go out of business. In southwestern Michigan publishers of weeklies have formed an association, each member agreeing to raise the sub scription from $1 to $1 50 a year. Others have followed their.example and those in touch with the situation say that within a short time every publisher will be forced to raise his subscription rate at least 50 cents a year. THE LADIES ARE PLEASED The success which has attended the purchase, installation and dedication of the pipe organ just placed in the Congre gational church, is very pleasing indeed to the ladies and all others interested. When the question of purchasing one was brought up by the ladies at a meeting of the Social Circle held in the park last summer, it was hardly thought possible that it could be done, but they voted to make the trial, pledged to raise $1,500 and immediately set to work to accom plish it, having already raised io. clean cash over $400 above the amount pledged on dedication day. The first payment on the organ will be made this week of 1610. The total amount raised on dedication dawas $1,229 76, enough cash being paid in to help out trie first payment., all of which as it falls due will be used for the purpose of paying for the organ and the necessary expenses of installing it.

There has been a funny counterfeit I scare out in southern California, esp- cialiy In Los Angeles and San Mono. ! All at once a laiRe nuiuher of silver ' dollars dated 1878 made their appear ance In business circles. They seemed to spring out of the ground. .It. was not long until nearly every body had some of the money. Then some one started the. story that all the money was counterfeit. Uecauso th money was all new-looking.' as if It were just out of a machine, a great scare resulted and people refused long er to accept the dollars. The police got busy and an appeal was made to the secret service. Several specimens of the alleged counterfeit were sent to Chif Wilkl, who at once pronounced them genuine as good as Uncle Sam ever turned out In his life. It was discovered, that many of these dollars had been lying In the suhtreasury at San Francisco for years without be ing put Into circulation. The sub treasurer died some time ago and a new man was appointed. In this way some of the money got into circula tion. KITCHENETTE IS THE LATEST. Up-to-Date City Apartments Must Be so Supplied. "There is a great unsatisfied demand at present for apartments and rooms with kitchenettes," said a woman real estate agent who caters to tenants in ih theater and hotel district. ntertaining Congressman Gerrit J Diek ema of the 5th Congressional district over Sunday. It was a great pleasure to meet him and his services in the work of the. Congregational church during "the day was highly appreciated. Mr Diekema added many friends to his already large list in this city and vi cinity and his address on topics pertaining to church enterprise and the uplifting power which church work and the reli gious side of life gave to a community was very inspiring. It was an evidence that our Congressman is not only strong in the political realm, but also in a realm of thought leading to the higher and purer life. The people made no mistake in call ing Mr. Diekema to a seat in the council of the nation. , Before leaving for his home at Holland Mr. Diekema referred to the warm re ception he had received from our citizens, the pleasure it had given him to come and the unmistakable signs ofthe thrift and enterprise of the Silk City. His visit here will be long remembered. FAVOR POSTAL SAVINGS BANKS President Roosevelt will send a strong recommendation to Congress in favor of the establishment of postal savings banks. Postmaster General Meyer is strongly in favor of the establishment of such banks as a branch of the postal service, and a number of Senators endorse the plan. The president is expected to urge Con gress to take this action, not alone on the merits of the proposition itself, but in con nection with the financial situation. Those who advocate the establishment of these banks believe they will bring vast sums of currency from its hiding places and restore it to circulation, and that the es tablishment of such a Government sys tem of banking will restore confidence which has been shaken in many financial institutions and which led to the recent withdrawal from circulation large sums of monev. In accordance with the plan of Post master General Meyer the postal savings banks would be conducted uider the supervision of the Federal postal service and the masses would be encouraged to deposit their savings with the Government. In return for these deposits the Govern ment would pay depositors 2 per cent in terest and the money deposited with the Government would be reloaned to national banks, savings and trust companies for about 2 12 per cer.t.
