Sept. 25, Under Lead of Modern Woodman and Public Spirited Citizens Tuesday, Sept. 25 is marked for a big day in Greenwood. The Modern Woodman, under the lead of Linden Camp No. 1450, are planning to make themselves known on that day. It will be a high carnival time. Woodmen, their wives, children, sweethearts and friends living with them are to enjoy the pleasures that will be provided for the occasions. Feasts of good things for the inner man and intellectual treats in the way of addresses, music, etc., will also be on hand to be served hot as needed. Outdoor amusements of every conceivable sort will be on tap to freshen the appetite and stir the blood. In short the best picnic time ever held in Greenwood is to be eclipsed on Sept. 25. The work of preparation has been distributed among Woodmen and others - for the whole town is to be strictly in it - so that details will be carefully looked after. There is already considerable rivalry springing up between the different committees to see which will do the best toward making the entire picnic a success not alone for the Woodmen, but for those who shall come to the town on that day. Following are the committees, to whom suggestions may be freely given: Committee on arrangements - C. H. Clute, F. M. Carter, P. M. Stevens, G. W. Bishop, Harry Hogue, Henry Johnson, H. H. Hartson Finance Committee - Harry Hogue, Fred Oelig, Herbert White Committee on grounds - Andy Anderson, Wm. Goodwin, Henry Schwarze, Hiram Shields Program committee—P. E.
