The annual picnic for 1912 was
to have been held Aug. 15, but a
big rain prevented. Last Thursday
was then set for the occasion. The
day was fine with the single excep
tion that it was a little too warm.
That however did not keep the peo
ple from attending the ever popular
picnic given by Warren Camp, M.
W. A. The Monroe City Band fur
nished the music and received
many words of praise as they al
ways do, as they furnish the kind
of music that pleases.
Congressman James T. Lloyd and
Morris Anderson, the Consul of the
Hannibal M. W. A. Camp were the
speakers of the day. Both are en
tertaining instructive speakers and
had a message for all present. Quite
a number of prizes were given in
contests of various kinds. The an
nual picnic at Warren grows more
popular as the years go by.
Quite a delegation from Monroe
and vicinity was present and all
greatly enjoyed the occasion and
will look forward for the 1913 edi
tion of the great Warren picnic.

From New York World.
William Wingerter committed
suicide last Saturday night about
11 o'clock by drinking carbolic acid.
The deed was committed at the res
idence of Alvin Buckles, near the
Primitive Baptist church, where
Wingerter's divorced - wife is living,
she being a sister of Buckles. Dr.
Chapman arrived soon afterward,
but could not save the dying man.
Wingerter had been divorced for
some time and it is thought that
brooding over family troubles set
him to drinking heavily and caused
him to take his life. ,
Deceased was a son of Jerome
Wingerter, of this city, and has al
ways been known as a hardworking
young man of peaceable nature.
His father, Jerome Wingerter,
has been a respected citizen of the
community for several years and
has the sympathy of the communi
ty in his bereavment. The funeral
services were held Monday after
noon, conducted by Rev. B. H.
Cleaver, and interment took place
the same afternoon at Monroe.

The Monroe County meeting of
the Christian church opened Tues
day evening 7:45. There was a good
attendance of the local membership
and several delegates and visitors
and speakers from other churches
in and out of the counties. The
opening address was delivered by
Rev. J. K. Reid of Palmyra. His
subject was "The Triumphant
Church." It was a splendid address,
simple but optimistic and served as
a very suitable opening to the con
convention. There are in the coun
ty some 19 churches and nearly as
many Bible Schools. Many of these
churches have no pastors and are
therefore not very strong. The
stronger ones support pastors, full,
fourth and half time as they are
able Reports of growth or decrease
will be made during the convention .
