The Marion Branch of tho Central
Home Telephone Company is having
trouble of its own now-a-days. Tho
notice of an increase of fifty per
cent, on residence rates and twenty-five
percent on business rates has
not met a very hearty response by
patrons who received it, but on tho
contrary has found very determined
opposition. Patrons generally do
nt feel that business or monetary
conditions justify an advance in their
expenses at this time and are luath
to pay it. Many arc discontinuing
the use of telephones, although inconvenient
to do so and we are informed
that over one hundred phones
have been ordered out. Nest week
we hope to give an authentic report
and list of patrons who discontiued
At a meeting of the School
Board last Friday evening, all the
teachers who taught in the Marion
Graded Schools last yeor were re-elected
for the ensuing year by unanimous
vote of the Trustees. The
board also voted to extend the length-of
the school year from eight to nine
months. The school year will be do-vided
into two terms: A fall term
of four months beginning this year
on Sept., 7th and end ending Dec,
24th ; and a spring term of five months
beginning Jan., 4th and ending May
21st. The Trustees are certainly to
be commended for their endeavors
to keep the Marion Schools up to the
standard of the best schools in the
State. By closing the first terms
work the Chrismtas Holidaythe break
that has hitherto occurred at this
time will be avoided and this will no
doubt be a decided benefit both to

What the paper has attained is
known to all and useless to enumerate,
good or bad, it must stand on
its record, and that as it were is nn
open book. That your county paper
has acquired the largest subscription
and has the best paying class of sub
scribers of any county weekly paper
in the commonwealth should be a mat
tor of pride to each citizen of Crittenden
county, and each and every
one who can read should push it
along. It is your paper. You
havo the use of its columns free for
all churche, lodge, o'liriujlj,
cemetery camp meeting, and tho
Sunday School work. Does any other
paper in the United States do as
much? We say no.

The Marion Milling Co., should
receive the patronage of the people
of Marion on all its products. The
capital invested in it is home capital
and our own public spirited citizens
have built it, and arc operating it,
and they arc entitled to the fall
measure of success with which they
arc meeting and to the patronrgo of
every one here who uses, flour meal
or ship stuff. The mill can be enlarged
until its as big as 'I'ilsbures
or Washlums" if necessary so you
need have no fear of over-crowding
the capacity. They patroniie the
farmers and buy what they have to
sell thus paying large sums of money
hero all the year round, thus helping
every business enterprise in the city.
Will you trrudninirlv withhold votir
