COMMIHEE IS ARRANGIM
URGED TR I
When a bunch of men who really2
mean business get together there is
usually something doing, and there
was something doing?and done?
at last Friday night's meeting ot the
Williamsburg Business Association.
Some of the members were a bit
tardy getting to the meeting, and
for a time it looked like an adjourn
mtnt for lack of a quorum, but sev?
eral of the faithful finally appeared
and saved the day. or rather the
meeting, and the organization there?
upon got down to business.
The principal topic ot the discuss?
ion was the proposed public market
place. The committee previously
appointed to devise ways and means,
etc.. made a good report, but the
resultant discussion soon made it ap?
parent that the project would have
to be marked out more in detail be?
fore definite action could ba taken
so the matter was continued ove;
The next question of real import
ance that came up was that of a gen
eral auction sale to be held in Wil
liamsburg at frequent intervals to
the benefit of farmers and other
having live stock, farm produce, c
anything else, for sale. The ide
had been suggested at a previei
meeting by Mr. P, W. Warner, an
it met with instant approval, tl
plan has been tried in various placi
ia the west and found successii
For instance, in the little town
Lebanon, South Dakota, there sui
?ales nave been conducted this yea

the three sales aggregated $5,405 C
The Business Association thin

was appointed to arrange for a
conduct a similar sale in Willian
burg at some early date in the d

of the sale will be about as folio

GAZETTE PIANO CONTEST
WILL CLOSE SATURDAY
THE LADY WHO WINS WILL PROB
ABLY SECURE THE VOTES BE?
TWEEN NOW AND CLOSING
Only a short time remains in which
the voting contest for this grand
piano bas to run, tnd then the grand
rush to put in the final vote will be
cn. The last week has been one
filled with excitement for the leaders
in the contest, and a house to house
canvass has been under way. In?
quiries from every source hav<
reached the Gazette office, and th<
fair candidates have put real en erg \
into their last efforts to gain thi
lead, which will win the handsom<
upright piano for them.
The fight for first honors is beini
waged between Miss Margaret Jone:
Miss Theresa Parsley and Miss Vii
ginia Johnson. Neither is losing tn
time in getting votes. Some of tb
leaders are showing a tendency t
hold back their votes until the la
minute in tbe hope of throwing tl*
others off their guard. Just wh
the last count will show is a que st ic
nobody can answer, but it is safe
venture that the winner will ha'
something near the 400,000 mark.
The contest has been interestii
from the start, and Miss There
Parsley, who took the lead, made
run-away race of it for t time. S
was soon overhauled by Mitti Mi
garet Jones, who is now in the le
and it still climbing.
A little hustling on the part
either of the leading candidates v
land her in first place. The otb
still have a chance, a few long te
subscriptions will put them well
Mai*! with the leaders. It it still ai
