Three stores were entered by burglars on Friday night of last week—the Loveless-Seneker store, the Ehrlich-Schmersey grocery and the store where the old Loveless stock is being sold out. Nothing was gotten at the last-named place and only a few dollars at the other two. The thieves were evidently after money alone.
Isaac Good is the owner of a new Studebaker Six and C.W. Thompson owner of a new Hudson Six.
The second new city engine has arrived and is being installed this week. It is just like the one already in use except that it is of smaller size. The Marion plant will be one of the finest small-city plants in Kansas.
Henry Sallee and family are the owners of a new 8-passenger Hupmobile. He and Chas. Locklin drove it home from Kansas City.
