Marion has been blessed for nearly two years with a flourishing Young Men’s Christian Association. But, the Association has labored under difficulties, having had no home of its own, and no sufficient facilities for the accomplishment of the work its members are anxious to perform.
And so it is proposed to erect a building 50x110 feet in size and they are hoping that the desired $10,000 needed will be pledged without delay. Any one feeling disposed to help this good cause need not wait to be called on, but can find a subscription list at this office.
The Ladies of the Christian church have secured the services of Prof. Joseph Heine, celebrated blind violinist, who with his wife, an accomplished pianist, and daughter, will give entertainments at the Opera House next Monday and Tuesday nights.

Coble & Moulton would call attention to a special bargain in a stock ranch just north of the city. The southern limits of this farm are just one mile north of the city of Marion. There are 720 acres of land in this tract; $3,000 worth of improvements; 130 acres under fence in pasture; 250 acres under plow; 3 living springs of water on the place. This is one of the most desirable stock farms in this part of the State.
