These plans have not yet been received but' are expected in a few days, and the the estimates will be completed, and bids for contractors received.

The mystery of th? assault on Mrs. William Lemons, wife of a well-known farmer living near Gas City, is still unsolved, the whereabouts of her alleged assailants or their identity being unknown, despite the fact that a continuous search has been made ever since the assault was made last week. Although they worked on the case all day Sunday it is understood that Monday morning Sheriff Fowler nor his deputies had any new clues promising definite results. It is believed that the two negroes are either in hiding1 in the woods someplace near the scene of their alleged crime, or have succeeded in getting entirely out of the country. Five hundred persons living in the vicinity of the home of Mrs. William Lemons, of near Gas City, who was brutally assaulted by two negroes last Tuesday afternoon during the absence of her husband, some armed '.with shotguns, ropes, and clubs of ! every description, scoured the vicinity late Friday evening in search for the assailants. James Browne, a boy, reported he had seen two negroes answering the description of the men, in the weeds, near the river bank, only a short distance from the Lemons home. The word spread like wild-fire. Workmen left the factories; farmers left their fields; men left their offices and, in a few minutes, a crowd of several hundred infuriated citizens had gathered. The search proved in vain, however, and no further trace of the men was discovered. Not until an hour after it had formed, did the posse disperse. There was intense excitement all over the county. Sheriff Fowler, Chief of Police Phillips, of Marion, and the police of Gas City, went to the scene, but there was no trouble. $50.00 Reward. For the capture and deliver to Al bert Fowler, Sheriff of Grant County, Indiana, or for information leading to the arrest and delivery of the follow ing: Two dark skinned negroes who com mitted the crime of assault, robbery and rape in this county.

This is a hardship on the worker and may have turned the scales in his favor making him a winner instead of a loser. - The News is offering workers a Ford Sedan Car, a Vietrola, an Electric Washing Machine, a Seller's Kitchen Cabinet, and cash commissions, for those who compete to the end of the race and do not win onj of the GRAND PRIZES and have won a SPECIAL CASH PRIZE, will be eiven 10 per cent on everv dollar's ! worth of business they turn in during the contest. We do not guarantee that you will win the Ford Sedan Car or one of the other prizes, but we DO guarantee that you will win SOMETHING, either a PRIZE or a CASH COMMISSION. This is what we said, this is what we meant, and this is what we will live up to. We know you are tired of hearing us say it but friends DO IT NOW subscribe THIS week. Of course your subscription will be appreciated NEXT WEEK, but it will assist SO MUCH MORE if paid NOW. So if you would really help, make tout payment when it will count MOST for the worker, in the way of votes, nd that time is NOW. Last Cash Prize The last CASH PRIZE will be .-ned Tuesday (tomorrow). It will be another $10.00 and will go to the best worker for this week. The standing shows that it is still, as we said last week, anybody's race, and for that reason not one of the leaders can afford to let down one iota in his efforts, while those who - hold fourth, fifth, or seventh or ninth place Kava it in their power to move to any point. ,It means just work and " that never-say-die spirit. : - ... m . an international disarmament society based on the lines of the Anti-baioon League.
