Should the court fix bond it is thought that it will be an unusually heavy ore. CliftoiJ disappeared some time ago following an examination of his books as trustee by the state board of accounts. He is charged, specifically, with a shortage of $1,500 in the dog tax fund, but it is said his total short-' age will amount to about $10,000. H A I.I.01V E EN PROG U A M BY ACADEMY SOCIETY.

Everythiig is "all set" for the election of a clerk and treasurer andofour. members of the town board tomorrow, and while this is true, no one appears able to state definitely just how "things are set." Some one will be elected that is certain, and it is also further certain that John R. Little will be elected to succeed himself as clerk and treasurer. This because Mr. Little has no opposition, the Democrats leaving that place on their ticket vacant. There may be a few Democratic voters who may write in the name of liome other person for this place, a Kacant place beir.'g left on the ticket for that purpose. But there will be mighty few of them, if any at all. Little's election is assured, as committee chairmei say. While the campaign has been a quiet one, nevertheless there has been a large amount of hard, but quiet-work done by the candidates for place on the town board, interest being centered in which party shall control the ' navmg Deen nearu. lhe only argu- ment heard has been such as pertain- ed to the personal fitness of the individual candidates, with no word against the other fellow. Notwithstanding this, however, there is a largo amount of interest in the outcome of the election, and be the outcome of the election, cause of tnis it is predicted that a heavy vote will be polled The worn- .... ...;n , : ; i. i..4.:.,.i 'r"'":a "V" "K . weeks having, been largely attended by thorn. There have been but two really big meetings, the first having been held by the Democrats in Telbax hall, and this was followed on Monday night of last week by a meeting by () ' Republicans, at which Judge f Muncie, presid tne Delaware- Grant Superior court, and Judge J. Frank Charles, circuit court, with others were the speakers. The meeting was well attended, many of the ladies being present, aiAl, as was the feature at the Democratic meeting, eats were served. With the women taking active part in politics and hav-iig an equal voice with the men, many of the political gatherings appear desitined to take on a social aspect as well as the political phase. The polls will open at 6 o'cock in the momintr and close at 6 in the ev- enintr. There are two votine daces in the towi of Fairmount, that for the south precinct being in the office of O. R. Scott, on West Washington street, next door to The News office, and that for the north precinct being in the rear room of the town hall at the confer of West Washington and Mill streets. The election officials for the two precincts will be as follows: Republican Members South Precinct Inspector Orville Wells, Clerk Lee Roberts. Assistant clerk Maude Briles.
