Sometime Saturday night the dental offices of Dr. W.R. Coburn, in the Case block, and Drs. L.E. West and J.G. Forney, with offices in the Dean block, were entered and robbed of about all the gold on hand used for fillings. Nothing else in the offices was disturbed.
During the past few days of cold weather S.B. Winchester put up 900 tons of ice, hardly enough to supply the demand for next summer, but enough to make ice the old time price most of the season. There may be a few days of real winter left, but it doesn’t look like it now.
The necktie party at the skating rink last Friday night was well attended and because of the prize given for the largest necktie, some of them were about as large as Darius Green’s flying machine. The prize was given to Willard Noce, not for the largest, quite, but because it was the largest creation really looking like a necktie.
Mr. C.H. Wareham of Wichita, who several years ago was pastor of the Marion Baptist church, was here calling on old friends Tuesday and Wednesday. He came up purposely to see his old friend W.W. Loveless, who is critically ill.
