Marion County Old Settlers’ Association will hold its second annual picnic at Central Park, Marion, Kansas, September 11th, 1913. That finished orator, Hon. John Madden, a Marion County boy, has promised to be with us and will be able to tell us some interesting things about his boyhood days on Doyle Creek in the sixties, besides other things of interest. We expect other prominent speakers to be present, perhaps ex-Gov. Crawford, Frank Doster and others.
GOT HIM SPOTTED
Quite a little thieving has been going on in town recently, and the fellow who is doing it is going to have all the trouble he wants mighty soon if he doesn’t quit it. Folks have got him spotted. The people who asked the Record to publish this notice mean just what they say.
Owners of threshing engines will please take notice that hereafter engines passing over paved streets in Marion must run on 2x12 inch planks.
Charles Kleinhammer, City Commissioner.
