In the circular sent out to the brew era arid distillers of otberstates, Arth ur E "Gordon, secretary of the Mlcni gan Brewers Association ald: If we can have the services of your travel ing men who are familiar with Mlchl gan conditions during the two weeks Immediately preceedlng theelection on April 3rd they will be of real value. Our plan Is to use them for organiza tlon work In various counties after they have been thoroughly Instructed In our methods." The people of Mich Igan nave come to well know what It means to Instruct men In Brewery A sociatlon methods. It means to buv and to bribe and to increase liquor traffic domination through any cort of denperate means. The Michigan state Brewerg Association Is doing Its work tcalthly and quietly at the present time but it should not bo forgotten that an organization that promises to Vliistruci men In its methods,' and then. to end them out to work In be half of Valoons will not be silent or Inactlre so long as Its peculiar tactics and unworthy schemes give promise of any sort of vicious socompltshmcnt, Leave your laundry at Mack's.

It will be recalled that attention: was recently directed to the fact that the Goebel Brewing company of De troit Js an institution largely owned by English stockholders. Dividends and 'profits for one year to the amoun of $00,000 were sent from Michigan to London to the foreign stockholders of the Detroit brewery. At a meeting held in LuAloi'i the English capitalists returned . $lo,000 of that money to Michigan to assist the brewery lnpro vidfnir "favorable conditions" for the Increase of its business. The presid ing otlicer at the meeting of the Lon don stockholders of the Goebel Brew ing Company boasted. of the fact that the opponents of brewery domination In Michigan were not likely to do much harm to our company because our amalgmation Is of such a charac ter that It can easily contend with their opposition."

Hall Monday, Feb. 12, was quite largely attended and many Important matters were discussed. Several knotty problems came before the meeting aud were thoroughly threshed out. The members however, were entirely of one mind on several particular sub jects, aud the conclusion was reached that among the Important objects of the Association should be the regula tion of credits. Every one recognized the haphazard way in which credit is extended. Many who ready deserve credit being turned dowu, and others who are un deserving, receive credit, and a couse queut loss results to the merchant who has become the victim through this extension of credit. It is believed that a system can be perfected whereby every , worthy per son can. receive the credit which he Justly deserves, and .that the risk from the uuworthy ones can be almost eutirely eliminated - Committees will be appointed who will confer with those wish log credit or those who have received credit aud where' misunderstandings are liable to arise or nave arisen, ana everyone who gets credit In town will have an opportunity to bring his case before the Association where both sides of the case can be thoroughly, discussed to our mutual advantage. It is also the desire of tho Associa tion to work -In harmony with the armers and they are requested when visiting the stores, to talk over the association matters with the mer chants, and the merchants will be only too glad to receive suggestions from any one who has the welfare of the community at heart. A copy of the By-laws will be pub lished so that every one can see more specifically the objects to be attained. HOW COLD AFFECTS THE KIDNEYS Avoid taking cold if your kidneys are sensitive.
