Ol KJG IIC'JOjo CLEAN UP The Lansing State Journal recently carried a news item which will be of interest to ttanncr-News readers be cause of the fact that it tells of the efficiency of a former Belding man, George Stout, for many years fore man in the red mill. The article is as follows: "Three inspections of places serv ing food were made this morning and three orders issued for cleanups. Un less the places are put in 'a clean and sanitary condition' before re-inspection after 10 days, prosecutions will be inaugurated by the state food and dairy department. "This is a summary of themorn ing's work of Inspectors Geo.. Stout and Geo. Johnson of the state food and dairy department "The first three places to be visited in the city and subsequently receiving the order to clean up were the Hotel Downey, Little Hudson Cafe and Hans Machus bakery and restaurant. In spections are being continued this af ternoon. ."'The restaurants in Lansing arein bad condition if the places we wer in th s morning are taken as an indi cation,' said Inspector George Stout. 'The places ranged from one of the leading hoteU tc one of the smaller lunch rooms. Conditions were bad, very bad. If sickness is to be pre vented and food made safe, there must bo a clean up.' .., ' 'Cleanliness, to the inspectors ot the state department leaves no shade of its full meaning in doubt. Except in a few points, the three places visit ed this morning were clean to the first glance. 'But microbes dont pick the 'easily-clean places as their hiding places,' said Mr. Stcut. 'They get in the wide, dirt-filled cracks in the floors and tables, in the jagged holes left by the knife on the meat blocks, back of the ranges and under the sinks and in the corners.' "These were the places he went af. ter in his' inspections. Dirt was caked deep in the inaccessible places. Running a pencil along the crack ot a mopboard or in the corners under sinks, great layers of dirt and grease were forced out. 'Bad, bad,' the in spectors would murmur and make notes on official looking pads." " The Kids Had a Good Time. A. Simmons took his carrier boys to Grand Rapids Tuesday morn ing at about 5 o'clock for the Press boys' annual outing at Reed's lake. Eleven ' of the boys went along with Mr. Simmons and the trip was made with Alfred Moore's big truck which made it so the boys were not cramped for room in riding and they had a good time going down, at the lake while they were there and a good time on the way home. v Miller & Harris i Embalming and Funeral Directing B.

A force of men were engaged and let us say busily engaged Saturday evening transferring the stock of H. Patterson from the old location in the Holmes building on West Main street where it has been for so many years, to the new and more commodious quarters next to the Celrite grocery store. It seemed to hear the truck shooting back and forth loaded down with Pat's big stock that Main street had been converted into a part of the loop district in Chicago and the way the helpers wrestled merchandise around added further to strengthening conclusions along that line. So after a busy week of sales and moving, Pat and his genial store force are in the new location ready to wait on you. SMYRNA t Mr. end Mrs. A. L.
