Had No Trouble to Secure The Required
Guarantee of $1,000
FINE THING FOR 01 CITY
Marion is the smallest town in
the South to have Redpath's Circuit
The progressive spirit of the
citizens of Marion asserted itself
last week when more than
fifty persons pledged themselves
to 'be responsible for tickets
amounting to $1,000 as a
to secure the great Redpath
Chautauqua next summer.
Several months ago Supt.
Snyder, manager of the local
Luceum course, took up the mutter
with the Redpath Bureau of
Chicago. Due to the size of
the town and its location, it
was a hard matter to get the bureau
interested enough to send
its representatives here to inves
tigate. But the Bureau took the
stand that a town that could support
a Lyceum course as large as
ours, could and would support a
Chautauqua. Acting upon this
belief, two men of the bureau,
Mr. Pasley .ind Mr. Wilson were
sent here last Wednesday afternoon.
Nothing further than a consultation-
was attempted until
Thursday afternoon. Then in
twenty-tour hours the required
number of guarantors were secured.
The Chautauqua has been called
the People's University. It is
correctly named for it brings the
best preachers, orators, entertainers,
and musicians that can
be had, and it gives a week's
wholesome treat that leaves no
bad taste in the mouth. Such
lecturers as Gov. Folk and Adam
Bede, such music as Knight's
famous band and such entertainers
as Lamant are on the program.
More extended notice will be
given later. The time is about
the last of June or the first of
There will be twenty programs
and the tickets for the
whole week are two dollars
or all over fourteen years of age.
For those under that age, one
They do all the advertising,
bring their own tent and crew
and between 125 and 150 persons
are on the program. They put
advertising matter in every
home in the county and in all

Seldom has there been more
genuine sorrow felt in Marion
than that experienced in the
death of Mildred Haynes, the
g irl wife of Trice Bennett.

that her fight with the grim
monster was an unequal one and
her friends and family and devoted
husband had hoped against
doubts and fears. Altho attended
by the best medical skill,
trained nurse and a loving mother,
and husband, she gradnally
sank under the ravages of the
dread tuberculosis, until the
end came in the early hours last
Saturday morning 'at her home
The remains were brought

Church, assisted by Rfiv. Gor-

She was married June 10 1908,
