NEW AUDITORIUM FOR WELSH.
Four Thousand Dollars Already Raised
--Site to be Selected Monday
That Welsh is to have a new audi.
torium is now practically an assured
Sfact, as sufficient funds have already
been raised to warrant the commense
ment of the work, and the visible re
sources are not yet exhausted.
The 'movement for a building of this
kind has been in the minds of a few
people for some time, but no deftiite
action had been taken in regard to the
matter, until a few days ago, when
Messrs. L E. Robinson and W. B.
Gabbert started the circulation of. a
subscription list, with the result that
they have secured the promise of near
ly, $4,000.00, and it is confidently ex
Spected that this amount will eventually
be considerably increased.
The need of an auditorium is one
that has long been recognized, and
should,, and in fact, is receiving the
most hearty support from the citizens
and business firms of the city.. The
willingness with which contributions
are being made to this fund, is an
assurance of the success of the enter
It is the hope of the promoters of C
this movement, to secure sufficient
funds to build an auditorium that t
will not only be of present service, t
but that will be an honor to the town
in future years.
A meeting of the subscribers to this
fund was held at the school house
last evening, at which ofhcers and v
committees were selected and a site
for the building was discussed, a full k
report of which will be given in next
week's issue of the Journal. Steps a
were also taken at this meeting that a
will insure the prompt execution of
the work in hand.
Although a goodly fund has been ii
raised, the subscription list is still ,
open, and anyone so desiring, may o
contribute toward this nmost com- s

HURRAH FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY!
sed Celebrate the Fourth,. Advertise Our
Town and Keep Our Money at Home.
The hot weather of the past few
di' days is a most favorable reminder
that summer-time is drawing on apace
dy and that the Great National Holiday I
se is but a few short weeks away. This
r- brings up the important question as
to whether Welsh shall celebrate the
lis Fourth of July in a fitting manner,
ew and thereby show ourselves to be
ite alive and progressive, or whether we
be shall neglect to do so and give out
en the impression tha- we are a dead one.
B. The celebration held here last year
a proved beyond a shadow of a doubt,
at that Welsh can put up as good a
r- celebration as any of the towns in
X this section of the state. It further
y demonstrated that to do so is a pay
ing proposition, not only in the civic
)e pride that it engenders, but from a
id financial standpoint.
1e It is a well recognized fact that the
is American people will spend their
ie money on this day, and if we do not
's give them a chance to spend it here,
,n in the way that they want to do, they
r- will go elsewhere tol spend it. By a
well arranged. celebration,. the busi
ness stagnation and depression that.
it always follows the Fourth in a town,
It that does not arrange for a celebra
,' tion, can be converted into a period
n of business energy and enthusiasmt
If we are willing to pay out money
,s to advertise our town and exploit oar
e goods, this furnishes the best possible
d way in the world to do so. By this
means we will not only be enabled to
1l keep our own people at home, but it
will be the means of drawing thou.
sanus of outside people into Welsh,
who will naturally spend money here
if with our merchants and tradespeople.
But even with this idea in view, it
is not possible to measure all the be
I nesicent results of a live celebration
v on a town, in dollars and cents.
Such a celebration adds to the prest
ige of a town, something that money
cannot measure, and yet, something
that is of real vital value to it.
Gentlemen of Welsh, this is your
opportunity to help boost your town
and your business. It is your op
portunity to help make Welsh a big
ger, better and busier town than it
otherwise could be. Let us all pull
together for a grand Fourth of July
celebration; the best that we have ev
