Harry Rogers will give a free picture show at the Auditorium on Saturday afternoon of this week at 2:30. This show is for the special benefit of the children and is given as a present to them. Older people, however, are cordially invited to attend. It will be a good show.
The local coal situation continues serious and everyone who can do so should lay in a supply of wood. A mass meeting was held here the other day to consider the situation, and a committee with I.E.

The Rock Island has confiscated at least two cars of coal consigned to Marion.
Dr. G.J. Goodsheller has bought a Ford Sedan, and has had it equipped with an electric starter. This is the first Sedan to be owned here. He bought it from the Stout Motor Co. who is bringing in a car load.
