He failed to return home for dinner or supper and did not show up at night. Investigations started Wednesday evening, failed to get any trace of the lad Wednesday. According, to reports, the boy has shown a strong dislike for school, from which he has repeatedly absented himself without the knowledge, or consent, of his parents. The school attendance officers some time ago placed the boy on virtual probation, and they may again take charge of the case should the boy be found to be wilfully absenting himself from school. It is not believed harm has befallen the boy, and he is expected to show up within a short time, either here or & the home of relatives at Marion. ed With Some "Rough Necks Black and Gold Lads Put Up J A fine spirit was shown both by Fairmount and Marion. anl whilp QUAKER "FIGHTING FIVE ! ment of the Methodist church where Clean, Clever and Game Fight With Fairmount wanted to win Fair. the Breaks Against Them at Critic- mount fans and players alike were al Point. glad to admit defeat in a game won " j by their opponents in a fair, sports- The sign was reversed at the high man like manner, by clean playing, school gym.
