Meetings are also held every Saturday evening at Delhi, Foster'g and Lodi, the speakers in nearly all cases being members of the club here, or froin the Temperance Union of the University. A.n important meeting of the Reform Club of this city was held one evening, last week. The committees for the ensuing six months were announced and confirmed ; the dues were reduced from 25 cents to 10 cents per month, and a special committee of three was appointed to see what arrangement can be made, if any, toward the erection of a suitable building lor the use of the club. The rent of the rooms now occupied by tke club amounts to $816 per year, and it is believed a great saving could be made if the club owned a building of its own. A report will be made in two weeks, and it is quite possible some arrangement will then be made and the proper parties set to work. Battle Creek Journal. Hon. E. B.
