Manson Will Celebrate

Commercial Club Meets and Decided to Celebrate the Fourth.

Mansion will celebrate the Fourth of July. The Commercial club of that city held a meeting Wednesday night and decided that the city should do itself proud. Committees will be appointed and preparations started at once. The Manson Democrat says regarding the celebration:

“It will take over $500 to do the thing up right, but there is not the least doubt that such an amount can be raised very quickly if the right start is made. One of the best speakers in the nation will be hired, one of the best concert bands will be engaged, two of the best amateur baseball teams in the state will play and several good free attractions will be engaged. It will be a celebration worth coming fifty mies (sic – should be miles) to see and enjoy and will be the means of re-establishing Manson as the amusement center of this section on the Fourth of July.”
