The three Marion bank statements published in the Record last week showed that there are nearly a quarter of a million of dollars on deposit in these institutions. What does all this mean? It means that money is getting more plentiful. It means that the big crops of last year and the big prices this year are beginning to tell. It means returning prosperity.

Nothing adds more to the appearance of a town, or gives strangers a better impression of it than attractive homes. And Marion is constantly adding new charms for strangers in this important particular.
