BELDING . BANNER-NEWS IONIA COUNTY'S BEST NEWSPAPER THIRTY-THIRD YEAR, NO. 20 BELDING, MICHIGAN, WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON, OCTOBER 5, 1921 FIVE CENTS THE COPY. MERCHANTS 10 OFFER BIG VALUES SAIURDAY OCT. 15 DAY ON WHICH SPLENDID JAC QUET CAR CHANGES HANDS WILL HE BARGAIN EVENT The merchants of ths city are cer tainly going to come across in fine shape in offering genuine big bar gains to the people of this city and territory for miles around on Satur day, October 15, in one of the biggest real bargain opportunities ever pre sented to the people. This day happens to fall on the same day that the splendid Jacquet automobile is going to be given away and while many people will be in town for the purpose of seeing who is the fortunate one in getting the automobile, the bargains which are being offered by the business men of this city will be fully as attractive a proposition as the giving away of the Jacquet and from a money sav ing viewpoint, wil be far greater, for in these times when conditions are as we fin ! them and with winter uny a few jumps ahead, it will pay any and everyone to study well the chances offered by our hustling mer chants to save money and it is up to the people living near enough to purchase the goods to do so, as there has not been a chance offered in any around in a lonir time which Start Damage Suit An aftermath of the collision be tween an automobile driven by Jas. Henderson of Mt. Pleasant and Er nest C. Moore, of Lansing, in the road near the Arthur Werner farm west of the city several weeks ago, turned up last week when Henderson brought suit against Moore and his bondsman, H. R. Unger, to collect for damans which he claims resulted to h m throuirh the attachment ac tion which Mo?re instituted at the time of th collision and which was later on thought best to drop be cause of the fact that the attachment had been made on the wrong grounds Herderscn claims that in loss of ma chine, and other items he has been damaged to the extent of $53.f0 and through his attorny, Fred L. Warner has brought the suit befor Justice Reed. C harles Rarden, of Greenville is representing Moore and Unger and the case will be dee'ded by the local insti'-e as soon asRardeh presents bis briff in the case which will be seme time this week.
