Don’t forget the “Loyalty Day” exercises tomorrow, Friday, afternoon at 3 o’clock. The procession will form at the stone arch bridge and march to west Main street and back, and if the day is favorable, the brief exercises will be held on the street at the Postoffice corner. Let the occasion be an expression, in unmistakable terms, of the patriotism and loyalty of the people of Marion and surrounding country.

A mail sack of government garden seeds has been received by the Record for distribution. Each package contains peas, beets, lettuce, muskmelon and radish.

If you shouldn’t get your package, you’ll know your request came too late. On Tuesday, they will go to town folks, if there are any left.
