$15 onoh and this fund to be used in
purchasing the comctcry from .1. It.
Kovil and making it public property.
Only n few days of the option

Wo approoiato the hearty response
wo are meeting in our call upon the
lot owners for tho $.1 for work this

this work. Ho is taking tho lots in
rotation as pay oonios in and will
aire for only those paying the $11.
Then the walks and drivos aro to be
cleaned of the gros. Some may
wonder what work there is that will
keep a man omployod tor seven
months. ot, if they will only stop
and oonsidor the condition of the
oeinotory thoy will soon oc conviuccd
thore is a great doal to bo done and
that it will keep a man busy all the
season to do this.
Thore arc something near 200
lots still unsold and we fed
that this price of $!100 for
this must be met. We still ask help
of those who have no lots thero to
buy during the noxt fifteen days.
After this purchase is made then tho
money realized from salo of lots will
be turned into tho cemetery funds,
and iicd to keep the place in order.'
Thero is no graft in this und no oue
need fear that his money will bo misappropriated.
Do not stand back
ami criticize, but come .md help .us
out in this work.

Treas. H. A. Haynes Pays off Last Old
School Bond of $2,000,00
II. A. Haynes, tho treasurer for
Marion Graded School district, has
paid off the last 2,000. bond of tho
old issue which was sold to build tho
mam building. This is indeed a
fine showing for the board and leaves
the district free of the debt except
tho new bonds of $5,000. which
were sold two years ago to build tho
auditorium and new chapel.
When the high character of tho
school maintained hcrcjis considered,
coupled with the fact that the building
is now heated by a new steam
radiator system and has new opera
chairs in the auditorium, is really
remarkable that the sinking fund
has been sufficient to retire the old
bonds so quickly. Great, credit is
due the school board and each citizen
of the district should "hold up their
hand" in all matters touching this
the greatest of Marion's enterprises.
The blessings of a good school will
decend to generations unborn as
well as to the boys and girls of
