"-Belding, Mich. May 29. 1908
Hon. Mayor and Common Council,
Gentlemen: At a meeting of the
board of water comissioners. Thursday.
May 28th, it was decided, after careful
consideration, that we would ask for an
appropriation of S4100.00 for water
works maintenance, tapping and exten
sions for the year ending April 30, 1909
Uur estimate exclusive or tne expenses
for tapping and probable extensions, none
of which we l ave under contemplation,
approximates very closely to $3175 00
and we consider the additional amount
making the round figures 84100 00 with
in bounds of reasonableness and safety as
a provision for the free taps and extensions
which will doubtless be called for to some
extent before the season closes.
Yours Truly, F. W. Howard
Moved by Aid. Crawford, seconded by
Aid. Hull that the appropriation asked for
by the Water Board be granted, which

Satisfying and Economical for the
Summer Cottage.
For tho summer cottage straw can
dle and lamp shades will be found sat
isfactory and economical. They shed
a charming Unlit through the woven
strands of swevt grass, of which they
are made, and they are both Inexpen
Flve and long-lived. The grass used
In weaving them Is tho same seen In
the Canadian baskets, which possess
such a delicate and delicious odor.
The pieces of grass are woven round
and round the shade, which Is shaped
either with a circular base or one In
hexagonal form. From there the shade
slopes gradually, and It has a narrow
upstanding finish at the top. The
seams are made by weaving In a
coarser grass, and at the top and bofe
torn edge a thicker kind, and one of a
darker shade of green gives a pretty
and substantial rim.
There Is no striking color in these
shades, the graces blending pale yel
low and light green tones In such a
way that the general effect Is neither
the one nor the other color. For this
reason sweet grass shades can be used
in any dining-room. Their freshness
makes them particularly attractive for
summer use. They are offered in sev
eral sizes ranging from the small can
dle shade to the larger ones Intended
to covet an electric light. .
When soiled or dusty all they require
is a careful wiping off with a damp
cloth.
Pin Cushions, Pen Wipers.
A new method has been found
where white velvet may be tinted in
the lightest and most delicate of pas
tel colors, and this new material la
used to make charming little pin cush
ions and pen wipers. Magnificent
sofa cushions for light and perishable
drawing-rooms, too, are made of the
material, and if darker shades are
used, the velvet makes a charming
cover for the sofa cushions in the li
brary. Of course, it must bo borne in
mind that the material cannot be
washed; therefore, the careful house
keeper will seo that it is not placed
In a iosltion where it is exposed to
dirt and dust. As the art of tinting
the material becomes better under
stood the velvet may be used for pur
poses not yet thought of, and it re
mains for the clover woman to decide
how the novelty may be employed to
her advnntago. ... . '
