CIVIC TALK—OUR CARNIVAL
Last night the Civic Committee,
went down around the court house:
yard to see if the trees were growing i
all right. The trees in the court house j
yard are an arnament to our town and
Wnile there we stumbled right on j
the biggest and best carnival that
ever come this way. It was a whop-
per. The merry-go-round was there,
strung full of electric light bulbs, and
when it went 'round and 'round, it I
looked like the heavens were shedding
its stars. The merry-go-round was
full of tubs, zebras and children. Even
one of the animals that was being
rode was the "Old Red Rooster." That
is the way to treat him; ride him to
death, ride him out of town.
While we were going 'round and
'round, looking at the merry-go-
round, we saw another round cage and
paid a quarter to climb a pair of stairs
and looked down on the inside and
saw two men spinning like a top from
the bottom to the top on bycicles. The
performance was well worth going
miles and miles to see. While there
we saw a man walk right up and
piunk down a quarter to climb the
golden stairs, and this same lazy
hound told the Civic Committee that
he had. no time, or money, to spend
in cutting down the old dead trees
that disgraced his back yard.
THE CIVIC COMMITTEE.
Y'esterday afternoon at the .home of
Mrs. C. C. McClure, the Missionary
Society of the Presbyterian church
held one of its most interesting meet-
ings of the year. There was a large
attendance of members and friends.
The program in the hands of Mrs.
Castle, the able president of the so-
ciety, was both instructive and enter-
taining. The subject for the after-
noon study was "The Child at School,
from the standpoint of the child of
The various features of the subject
were brought out in short, interesting
talks by several to whom topics had
been assigned. Added to these were
vocal and instrumental selections, and
a reading, making the program quite
At its close, the hostesses, Mrs. Mc-
Clure and Mrs. Hudgens, served dainty

Ex-Mayor L. C. Oliver made a sup-
plemental report of police court busi-
ness to Mayor Lindsay this morning,
enclosing $20, to cover the fines in two
cases which it was charged his first
report did not show accounted for.
One was the case of an Indian, for be-
ing drunk last 4th of July, paid by
Clyde Bogle; and the other covered a
check given by Ed Thomas, paid for
another Indian—but not for Marion
Purcell, whose case Mr. Oliver still
maintains he knows nothing about.
He asks a thorough investigation of
| the books and accounts to the end that
if he owes the city anything he may
i know it and stands ready to pay, and
if the city owes him anything he ex-
pects to be reimbursed.
