New Tampa Paper

The first issue of the Tampa Star made its appearance last week, and the Record acknowledges the receipt of a copy. Tampa is a hustling little town and if the business men will support a paper loyally, it ought to thrive. The first issue of the Star is exceedingly creditable.

Karl Ehrlich has bought the old mill property, just southwest of the Marion Record building and west of the Cottage Hotel and will erect an elevator, install up-to-date machinery and equipment for handling grain on a large scale. This is splendid news. Marion has long needed just that sort of thing, and Mr. Ehrlich is a man who is able to make it a success.

The Marion band will give an open-air concert in front of McMillan’s restaurant at a quarter to eight o’clock next Tuesday evening. Everyone invited to come out and hear it.

An exchange of parasols was made at Epworth League a week ago Sunday and Miss Daisy Manual would like to find the one she lost.

BOYS! BOYS! BOYS! On Saturday, May 11, from 10 to 12 o’clock, every boy from 6 to 12 years old that will call at our store will be given a Japanese kite free. Don’t forget the date.
