one or two instances banks reported
that the quota had not been subscribed,
but It Is confidently expected that
they will go over by tonight. A number
of large corporation subscriptions
to be turned In today will also help
swell the quota for the county.
Chairmen of the committees and
the committees themselves are much
elated today ocer the prospect of the
county going over, but are leaving no
stone unturned to garner in the belated
subscriptions and swell the total
to as large proportions as possible.
?ome members of the committee
were optimistic enough to predict at
this time, a few hours before the
closing of the allotted season, that
the county would go over to the extent
of securing the additional 3350,000
which was asked for by W. A.
MacCorkle, state Liberty loan chairman.
The Quota allotted to trie couuij u>
$2,405,100 and should the additional
$350.00Q?be secured this would swell
the county's quota to $2,575,100. and
would place Marion county among
the first counties in the state in the
amount subscribed per capita to the
Fourth Liberty loan.
Hutchinson Coal Co. In.
The Hutchinson Coal company corporation
has subscribed through Marion
county banks the sum of $50,000.
This is in addition to the subscriptions

which will aggregate a
large sum.

Mr. Crigler after being gassed
and having recovered sufficiently
to return to the ranks, was injured
while at rifle practice and was confined
to the hospital for several
weeks and later was sent to a base
hospital at Boston. While in Kansas
City Mr. Crigler had the misfortune
to fall, again hurting his injured 1
and but for that reason would have
perhaps been on the seas on his re-,
turn voyage to France. Mr. Crigler

County Chairman Henry S. Lively,
Sergeant Carl Johnston and Mrs.

Ashcraft. of Farmington. chnvassed
the Harter Hill section yesterday and j
took subscriptions from every man I
approached. The sum thus secured

and E. B. Carskadon. Frank Coogle,
Fred Mclntire. Clark Miller and J. M.
Jacobs, scoured the Hickman Run
section and raised the sum of $2,000.

This morning City Health Physician
Crls stated that he could ses little
chance in the- influenza situation locally.
He does not believe the number of
new cases is on the increase.
Dr. L. N. Yost, county health officer
was of the opinion today that the "flu''
epidemic in Marion county had not improved.
He stated the-other day that
conditions were Improving, but as a
matter of fact the disease has been
making such inroads in the mining
towns that ail indications of a favrable

the latest developments. In practically
air of the mines large numbers of miners
are ill with the disease. At Four
States a large number of miners are on
th sick list.
Dr. L. N. Yost Is now required to
make a daily report to the state health
department at Charleston of the number
of influenza cases existing in Marion

from each physician daily.
A plan is also being worked ont
