When disease gets into the kidneys
it is just a scertain to take a person
off as leprosy, unless it ischecked be

knew the danger that lurked in dis

would be as careful of them as they

protect and take care of them. Kid

kidney diseases because it removes

HOLDS NEW RECORD
Heads Mills Of The Country In
Production Of Corn Meal
Sikeston, Mo., June 14. The Scott
County Milling Company, operating
here one of the largest flour mills of
the State, has established a record
during the last year. In 1917 the
Scott County Milling Company ex
ported more com products, which in
cluded grits, cream and pearl meal,
than any other mill in the United
States. About 200,000 barrels of all
classes of all products were shipped
during that time.
It has been generally believed that
the corn products would not ship to
foreign countries and be sweet when
it arrived, but the Scott County Mill
ing Company has proven that such
is not the case. The amount of mois
ture in the, products was reduced
from 13 per cent, as formerly, to 10
per cent and every one of their pro
ducts arrived in foreign countries in
the very choicest condition.
With the increased use of corn and
its products it is believed that this
year's output of the mill will largely
exceed that of the previous year.

some shocking wheat, while others

MUST GO TO WAR
George Crites To. Be One Of
Next Draft Call-Sheriff
George E. Crites, who has been
employed on a farm near Oak Ridge
during the last six months, will be
one of the men to leave on the next
draft call which, in the opinion of the
members of the local board at Jack
son, will be made during the early
part of July. Tin's was stated yes
yesterday evening by Sheriff Hutson,
who found that the young man had
failed to register last year, although
according to all records available, he
was of the draft age at that time.
Following up a "tip" given him
some time ago, Sheriff Hutson went
to Oak Ridge and other towns of the
county, where Crites had attended
the public schools. These records as
well as the one kept by teh Knights
and Ladies of Security, of which
Crites is a member, showed that he
was only 29 years old.
When confronted with these rec
ords by Sheriff Hutson, Crites insist
ed that he was 33 years old. He said
he had not registered because his
mother had told him at the time that
he was too old. He said his mother
gave his age as 32
Crites is a widower, his wife hav
ing died about four years ago. He
was registered by the sheriff and im
mediately classified, being placed at
the top of the list of those men who
will leave on the first call in July

DIES NEAR JACKSON
Funeral of John W. Smith This
Afternoon Was III Several
John W. Smith, one of the best
known farmers of the county, died at
his home on the Jackson road, two
miles east of Jackson, yesterday
morning following an illness of sev
eral months due to an attack of
dropsy. The funeral will be held
this afternoon. The remains will be

His wife preceded him in death sev
eral years ago as did his daughter,
Mrs. Charles Wolter, his only child.
Three brothers survive. They were

PUXICO YOUTH IS
HELD AS DESERTER
Shot Toe Off While Hnnting
Had Left Camp Without
Stoddard County officials yesterday
communicated with United States
Commissioner F. A. Kage as to what
steps to take against Dernie
Looney, a young man cf Fuxico, who
is held in the Stoddard County .iail
at Bloomfield on a charge of being a
deserter from the army. The com
missioner advised them to turn fie
soldier over to the commanding of
ficer at Jefferson Barracks, St. Louis
According to the information from
the county officials at Bloomiold,
Looney was drafted ,last February
and put in the field artillery. During
the early part of Jane he came home,
claiming to have a furlough. While
hunting shortly after his return home
he shot a toe off his right foot.
The youth asserted the shooting
Avas accidental, but his aversion
against army life evidenced by his
second return without leave, caused
an investigation of the shooting, and
the county officials assert the shoot
ing was not accidental.
The young soldier is held in the
county jail and will be delivered to
the military authorities at Jefferson
Barracks for courtmartial.
FARMERS URGED TO
War Conditions Will Make Mass
Shipments Necessary In
Washington, June 1". Farmers
are urged by the United States De
partment of Agriculture to place or
ders at once for fertilizer needed for
fall wheat. It is very important, ac
cording to W. W. Jlein, assistant to
Secretary of Agriculture in charge
of the licensing of fertilizer concerns
under the Food Control Act, that
dealers and manufacturers know far
mers' needs as soon as possible, so
that orders can be combined and car
space used to the best advantage.
Transportation difficulties require
that freight cars be loaded to their
rated capacity. Delay in ordering, it
is said, may result in a repetition of
last spring's experience when many
farmers failed to receive their mixed
fertilizer and acid phosphate until
after planting time.
Of the 1746 American aviators in
France a large square of this num-
Der are ready to go into th,e air
against the enemy, but only 126 have
been provided with equipment. There
is an equal ncmber of observers and
o8,"67 enlisted men to act as mecha
nicians and airdrome men are at work
completing the flying fields to be used
bythe American forces.
That the training of aviators has
progressed with far greater speed
than has the production of aircraft
is evidenced by the fact that there
are in this country today 3467 trained
aviators and 4T)22 observers and non
flying officers awaiting orders to pro
ceed to France.
