It is the purpose to make the occasion a notable event in the history of Fairmount, aiAl to that end elaborate preparations are being made for the entertainment of the hosts of Kiwan-ians from all over eastern Indiana who are expected to join with the local Kiwaii'ians in the celebration. Just what the program will be has not as yet been fully determined, but the "doin's" will start at G:30 with a par-ode the like of which, according to promises, has never before been seen in Fairmount, or hereabouts. Marion promises to come en masse, while Mui'cie sends word that "they'll all be here."

AND MRS. -DICKEY xrrkrMrrk cicrv VC a DC ! Well Known Couple Living West of j Fairmount to Celebrate Golden Wedding Next Tuesday On Oct. 11, 1871, occurred the marriage of Benj. F. Dickey and Miss Cecilia Tingley, at Harrisburg, Fayette county, Indiana. They" located on the farm now their preseiA home, known as "Maplehurst. one mile south and nearly five miles west of Fairmount. One son, Oscar Dickey, r.nd Mrs. Dickey's sister, Miss Susan Tii'gley, are other members of the household. The husband is now past 80 years of age, almost totally blind, somewhat feeble, but able to get about with the aid of a cane. He is owner of three excellent farms in Grant county and one near Summit-ville. Oil next Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 11, a general invitation is extended to relatives, neighbors and ac-quaintatAres to call between 1 and 5 p. m. An orchestra of Marion musi-ciaife will furnish music for the occasion. No presents desired. LEAK IN WATER MAIN , CAUSES MUCH TROUBLE. A bad leak in one of the city water mains on Main street was discovered Sunday morning in front of the Mas onic building on Main street, the water flooding a portion of the street. When workmen undertook to locate the leak it proved a hard one to find, J requiring a large amount of excava- on before located. Even then the 5 water poured in such volumes from the break that it was necessary to , shut down the pumps at the water works station for an hour Monday afternoon, until the break could be : : ; ' ; ; i all probability a number of Logan-sport Kiwaniais will join in the festivities. Arrangements for an elaborate banquet to be served in Telbax hall are being perfected, and the program of the evening will be givei in the hall. It will be a "ladies night," also, and it is expected that a large number of ladies will accompany the visiting delegations. Just what to expect the committee on arrangements and the committee oif entertainment decline to say, further than "you may expect most anything." The Fairmount Kiwanis club is the "baby" of the Kiwanis world, Fair-mount having the distinction at this time of being the smallest town ii the country to have successfully organized a Kiwanis club, and the "infant" promises to make a lusty noise on next Wednesday lJight. I. W. W. CIRCULARS ARE DISTRIBUTED HERE. If oife is to judge from circulars picked up on the streets of Fairmount during the past few days an emissary of the I. W. W. is working here. A four page circular addressed to the "Colored Workers of America," inviting them to join the ranks of the I. W. W. and setting forth at considerable length why they should align themselves with this "outlawed" organization, has been distributed here. In what numbers these have been circulated, or by whom, is not known, but some of them have been picked up and it is presumed that they have had a careful and perhaps ''judicious distriutioiJ. The circular closes with an invitation for those interested to write to the "general secretary" whose address is given as 1001 West Madison street, Chicago. WAR MOTHERS PLAN FOR ARMISTICE DAY The War Mothers met in regular session MorAlay night, War Mother Ttfrs. Ed Hollingsworth presiding. The meeting was held at the home of Mrs. Maria (S.cott, corner of Vine and First streets, and the regular routine program was carried out. A committee was appointed by the chair to confer with the Veterans of Foreigrf Wars to make arrangements for Armistice Day as follows: Mrs. Maria Scott, Mrs. Nellie Buck, Mrs. Rachel Lyons and Mrs. Belle McEvoy. Mrs. A. S. Roberts was voted into the society as an honorary member. During the social hour which followed the evening's program, luncheon was served by the hostess. The next meeting will be . with Mrs. Burgan on Fourth and Cottonwood streets. Mr. and Mrs. Claude Carey and children, James and Mary Helen, and Mr. and Mrs. James S.

Smith of Exeter, Mo., and daughter, Airs. Lou FraiJ-tham of Springfield, Mo., who have been visiting relatives in Fairmount and vicinity for the past week, a family gathering was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Glen Rhoads, on SurAiay, each family bringing well-filled baskets.
