THURSDAY MORNING. JAN. 30.
In The Stegar Building, Renovated
And Beautified, is Now
THE "PRIDE OF MARION."
The Crittenden Atheneum has
made many improvements to the
interior of their club room, in
"y bf new linoleum on the floor
of the pool and billiard room, new
drugget on ladies' cloak room
which has been arranged at the
head of the stairs, and has cloak
hooks and nice mirrored wash-stand
and other accessories.
New? cushions and coer have
been put on the pool tabic which
adds much to its efficiency. All
together the club rooms are a
nice place for the young folks
and their chaperones to nu'et,
but should not be allowed ever
to interfere with other duties or
obligations. The young men who
suggested the bazaar the profits
of which enabled them to make
all these nice improvements are
to be commended. Our people
should continue to encourage the
attendance at the club rooms, for
while manv towns have saloons,
gambling dens, blind tigers and
places worse if possible,
than those named, to entice the
young men, Marion has a l elned
and in fact an elegant and home
:i"iv club where a boy may go
with his sister, sweet heart or
mother and be sure of no contaminating
influences. Harm of
course can be made of any thing
or place. Even that institution,
the Christian home where only
loye and virtue should reign, is
sotrelimes turned into a hell on
earth as we see reported almost
daily in our exchanges.

Of Hopkins County Unanimously-Agreed
to Stand Pat for Eight
FOR THEIR 1912 CROP
MADISONVILLE, Ky. Jan. 28
Four hundred of
Hopkins county at the court
house agreed this afternoon unanimously
to stand pat for eight
cents average for the 1912 crop
and took a stand for a cutout
this vcar if the tobacco buyers
do not pay tKe price demanded.
A l esolution was passed
that the Stemming-District
Tobacco Association and
the Farmers Union, the organizations
operating in the tobacco
belt, come to an agreement on
price and delivery and not compete
with each other. The resolution
stated that such action
would ui doubt . Jly aid the farmers
in securing a fair price for
their product and the
at the meeting pledged themselves
to sign up with one or the
other of the two organizations in
event such an agreement was
signed by the two farmers' organizations.
A committee composi d of Bradley
Wilson, W. L. Harris and
Robert Quirey, as appointed
to solicit to sign the
pledge of the Stemming District
association and to hold these until
the two organizations had
united on some sort of protection
on orice and delivery in event of
which those signing the pledges
will become members of the association.
An organization was
formed to canvass the county for
pledges of this nature and a
prominent made the'
prediction that a large majority
of would sign it. Fif
ty "dumpers" signed it at the-meeting.
A number of strong talks were
made and it was the consensus
of opinion that every
should hold out for eight cents
and those present voted unanimously
in favor of a resolution
to this effect, virtually binding,
themselves not to sell for less.
