Monroe City is not behind any
other town when it comes to seek
ing the postoffice. Wednesday one
or more petitions were being circu
lated asking for position. Dr. Me
gown's term does not expire for
more tban two years. Therefore it
is entirely too soon to change.

Give Them Your Support.
The latest returns from the elec
tion held throughout the country
yesterday indicate that Governor
Woodrow Wilson Bnd Governor
Marshall have been elected presi
dent and vice-president of the'
United Slates by an overwhelm
ing majority. The people have
spoken in unmistakable terms and
the country for four years from
March 4 will be controlled by '
the democratic party. Present in-!
dications are that the next house of
representatives will be overwhelm- J
ingly democratic. It becomes the;
duty of every good and patriotic !
citizen to bow to the will of the
majority of the people expressed at
the ballot box and to give to Pres
ident Wilson and Vice-President
Marshall their hearty support in
their every effort to conduct the
affairs of the nation according to
the platform and policies on which
the people entrusted them with
the highest offices within their gift
While thousands of the voters of
the country were not in sympathy
and accord with the platform on
which the democrats were success
ful at the polls, the people have
spoken in unmistakable terms and
under our form of government
the voice of the majority is supreme
and from the fourth of next March
Wilson and Marshall will have the
support of the people of the entire
nation. Hold up their hands in
every way possible, give them an
opportunity to formulate into laws
the platform upon which they were
elected. Time alone will tell
whether or not a change in the ad
ministrative policy of the govern
ment will work for the betterment
of the people along commercial,
manufacturing and business lines.
Give them your hearty support and
hold them and the party they rep
resent responsible for the result.
The above from the Hannibal
Courier-Post has the true ring.
The Democratic party will do noth
ing to injure legitimate big business
but it will do something to prevent
big business, the trusts and monop
olies from encroaching on the rights
of the masses. Democracy stands
for equal rights to all and special
privileges to none. Such policies
cannot do anything that will be
injurious to the country. If every
body will do their part the people
will be prosperous instead of the
big interests being prosperous at
the expense of the people. Let us
all pull together and the era of
greatest prosperity to all the peo
ple will be with us.
On Nov. 6th, the hand of the Lord
picked from the flock of the faithful,
the wife of Perry T. Hays and took
her to his home above.
Her maiden name was Jessie V.
Sandifer, was born in Monroe Coun
ty, Mo., July 10. 1891, and at the
time of her decease was 21 years, 3
months and 26 days of age. She
leaves to mourn her loss, a husband,
infant daughter, two sisters, one
brother and father, her mother hav
ing preceded her to the Great Be
yond some few years ago.
Deceased was a devout member
of he Catholic church, a fond moth
er and loving wife and was loved
by all with whom she came in con
tact. The remains were laid to rest
in the beautiful Holy Rosary cem
etery in Monroe City awaiting the
Chamois skins 5c to $1 00.

Monroe Hotel Sold.
There is much mystery regarding
the sale of the Monroe Hotel block.
,. , , . . Jt .
Ihe property has been bought by
St. Louis parties and $2,500 has t
been paid on it. The balance of ,
the $15,000. the purchase price, is
to be paid Jan. 1st, when the pa- j
pers will be passed. D. K. Yowell !
made the trade. There are all kinds

tirely for mercantile business. The! bv.terian General Assembly's Com-
hotel will be continued. It is given i
out that the change will benefit our
city Still we are in the dark.
There are all kinds of rumors. All
we have to do is to wait patiently
and we will find out in due season.
Want to Be Postmaster.
Feeling that I am worthy and
well qualified, duly and truly pre
pared to serve the patrons of the
Monroe City postoffice as post
master, I take this method of in
forming you of my desire to be
postmaster. In an- interview given
out Judge Rucker, the Congressman
from this district, says that these
appointments will not be taken up
until such time as there may be a
vacancy. It is further given out
that all postmasters may serve un
til their commissions expire. In
view of this'arid the fact that the
term of Dr. Megown does not expire
until Jan. 1915, 1 do not feel that it
is necessary to boTe the people with
a petition now and again when
there is to be a vacancy. You
know of the service to the party of
all applicants and something of
their fitness and claims for the
place. Weigh all carefully, and
then if at the right time to sign
petitions, you think I am entitled
to recognition I will be pleased to
have you sign my petition.

How to Get a Good Obituary.
If you have frequent fainting
spells, accompanied by chills,
cramps, corns, bunions, chilblains,
epilepsy and jaundice, it is a sign
that you are not well, but liable to
die any minute. Pay your sub
scription in advance and thus
make yourself solid for a good
obituary notice. Mountain Echo.
J. L. Lyon who is at a Quincy

as his many friends have desired.
At last reports he was gradually
improving, but slowly.

D. K. Yowell certainly has no
kick on the real estate business he
is doing. Besides closing a deal on
the Monroe Hotel block, notice of
which is elsewhere in this paper he
made these trades.

Mr. Yowell then also sold his
own farm of 440 acres near Paris,
known as the Burgess farm.

For several weeks prior to the
memorable date of November 5.
1912. the inside cover page of the
magazine section of the Sunday pa

which he undertook to convince the
people that the salvation of this
country depended upon the re-election
of Taft that unless Taft was
reelected the country would be

Surprise for Mother.
A certain mother' given to mys
ticism and impressive theories re
garding her highly natural children
one evening was entertaing visitors.
Suddenly came the sound of little
feet pattering to the head of the
stairs. The mother raised her hand
j in solemn warning.
"Listen," she said, softly. "The
children are going tu deliver their
goodnight message. It always gives
me a feeling of reverence to hear
them they are so much nearer the
Creator than we are. and they
speak so wonderfully, sometimes.
Hush! One of them is speaking
