The question of the site for the new high school building is still being discussed. The proposition before the Board of Education last spring was to place the building between the Quisenberry and Duncan properties facing Lincoln.

Walter Siebert phoned to the bank Thursday morning that he guessed it was a legal holiday and wouldn’t be down. There was a reason—girl.
The ladies of the Federated churches held a fine bazaar in the Masonic Hall yesterday, with many beautiful articles for sale. It looked like they had enough homemade candy to supply the town. One of the attractions was a Room of Antiquity in which was displayed the heirlooms of many people, some dating back to 1800 or earlier. And the crowning event was the six o’clock chicken-pie dinner.
Santa Claus, a Christmas tree, a fine fireplace with hung stockings and all the things to supply them all are shown in the Christmas decorations at the Racket store, which is one of the pretty window displays representing the holiday season.
The upstanding thing done by the Chamber of Commerce recently is the building of the bridge over the drainage canal south of Marion. Messrs. Richardson and Case as the committee were tireless in seeing the work through. They were ably assisted by many who can not be named here. Special attention is called to the farmers south who generously contributed work with their teams to see the scheme through.
