The forty-second annual convention of ths Grant County W. C. T. U. in session in Marion last week, closed Thursday evening after having adopted strong resolutions against the use of tobacco in any form by those who have young people in charge, especially school teachers.

Mrs. Lida Outland, newly elected county president, spoke on the subject, "Do our present political plat forms represent W. C. T. U. principles?" The speaker asserted that they do not as all mention of temperance was dropped from the political plat form at the last campaign. . Mrs. Outland recommended the edu cation and agitation of the W. C. T. U. principles of temperance, prohibition, single standard of morals and other reforms for which the W. C. T. U. stands. She urged that the women study and think that they may be informed so that when the time comes that the women will have a repre sentation in the great legislative bodies of the land, they will be ready for the responsibility. LEISURE WOMAN VIOLENTLY INSANE. Mrs. Emma Springer, a well known woman of the Leisure neighborhood, and who has been living, there for some time, was taken to Indianapolis a few days ago but on account of irregularities in the papers connected with her case, was not admitted to the Central Hospital for the Insane there. While in a restaurant there eating a lunch before being brought back home, she became violent, and des troyed several dollars worth of prop erty in the place before she could be restrained. She became violent again Tuesday at Leisure, and threatened several persons before she was sub dued and placed under guard in her home. Police from Elwood were called and took her to Elwood, where a lunacy inquest was held. The woman was found to be insane and was taken to the Madison county jail at Anderson to be held there until a place is obtained for her in the asylum. HARD TIMES SOCIAL BY THE REBEKAHS.

November 22 (Annual Dinner) ( Continued on Paje Four) KIWANIANS HOSTS TO THE LADIES Special Program of Entertainment Arranged For Wednesday Night Oswald Ryan Speaker Now, Listen! That's the order from local Kiwan-is headquarters. Which, interpreted, means that the first ladies night of the new club will be held on next Wednesday niprht, and every member of the club is expected to be there, accompanied by his wife, or, if he has no wife, some other fellow's sister. Plans for the meeting were completed Saturday when final arrangements were made with the Ladies Aid society of the M. E. church to serve the dinner, which will be served in the basement of the M. E. church. The dinner will be served promptly at 6:30 o'clock, and following this a special program will be carried, with the Hon. Oswald D. Ryan, of Anderson as the speaker of the evening. Mr. Oswald will speak on "Americanism" and his reputation as a public speaker insures that he will have a message and that that message will be well worth while. Another feature of the program will be the chautau-gua girls from the Redpath circuit, who are attending Taylor university this year. In addition there will be "some" talks by local talkers, and Fairmount has some talkers who are worth hearing. PURE BRED STOCK SALES NEXT MONTH W. O.

At a meeting of the board of directors held Thursday evening it was decided to start the excavations and to push the work ort the building as rap idly as the weather conditions will permit, it being the purpose to get it inclosed and under cover before sev ere weather starts in. The building, one story and basement, will be 50x36 feet in dimensions, with cement blocks as the principal material used, although pressed brick will be utilised for the front. The manager's office will occupy the front portion, with the switchboard and operators department, next with a work room will be located in the rear. The entire basement will be given over to storage purposes. Tha new building will cost, it is thought between $4,500 and $5,000. The company will install early next ... .... . spring an entirely new switcnnoara, which will represent the outlay of about $8,000. The new system will be what is known as central energy and within a few months after the change is made, subscribers will not need to "ring" central, as at present.
