The Marion County Common School Graduating Exercises will be held at Marion in the Auditorium Wednesday evening June 9, at 8 p.m. To meet the expense of the Auditorium an admission of 20 cents will be charged to all except graduates.
The Aulne folks who put on “High Life at Saratoga” at the Auditorium yesterday evening made one large hit. We regret that it is impossible to give extended account of the performance. There was a splendid audience, the admissions amounting to $106 which will nearly all go to the Good Road fund.

The new bridge south of town—“dead man’s bridge”—has been finished and will be open to traffic in ten days or two weeks.
