ARLINGTON, Kan. (AP) _ The small Reno County town of Arlington is throwing a 125th birthday celebration this weekend.

The town of 1,500 people will gather Saturday to remember the town's history. Arlington was founded in 1887, a decade after the Arlington mill was built along the Ninnescah River.

The celebration will include a retelling of the town's history by re-enactors. And it will recount the construction of Kansas 61, which linked Arlington to Hutchinson.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/QJCX9w ) plans include a parade, an 1887 variety show and birthday cake and ice cream at the community center.
