The Marion Cemetery Association
is pushing the work undertaken by
it, in the way of collecting money
from lot owners and also the sale of
lots. It wishes to keep before the
public this sale of twenty lots at
13 each and this fund to be used in
purchasing the cemetery from J. B.
Kevil and making it public property.
Only a few days of the option
remain and this sum must be raised
in this time. The regular price of
$20 will be put on lots after this
We appreciate the hearty response
we are meeting iu our call upon the
lot owners for the $3 for work this
year. We have employed John
Brantley, at $25 per month, to do
this work. He is taking the lots iu
rotation as pay comes in and will
care for only those paying the $3.
Then the walks and drives are to be
cleaned of the grass. Some may
wonder what work there is that will
keep a man employed tor seven
months. et, if they will only stop
and consider the condition of the
cemetery they will soon dc convinced
there is a great deal to be done aud
that it will keep a man busy all the
season to do this.
There are something near 200
lots. still unsold and wo feel
that this purchase price of $300 for
this must be met. We still ask help
of those who have no lots there to
buy during the next fifteen days.
After this purchase is made then the
money realized from salo of lots will
be turned mto the cemetery funds,
and used to keep the place in order.
There is no graft in this nnd no one
need fear that his money will be misappropriated.
Do not stand back
and criticize, but come and help us
out in this work.

Treas, H, A. Haynes Pays off Last Old
School Bond of $2,000.00
H. A. Haynes, the treasurer for
Marion Graded School district, has
paid off the last $2,000. bond of the
old issue which was sold to build the
main building. This is indeed a
fine showing for the board aud leaves
the district free of the debt except
the new bonds of $5,000. which
were sold two years ago to build the
auditorium and new chapel.
When the high character of the
school maintained hcrejis 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
