The Opening of Schools.
Teacher and school officer, should
get everything in readiness for school at
(east week before schools opens. Clean
bouse, cut weeds, see that good water
may be had, burn trash, iniice premises
unitary and avoid malaria and other
diseases due to uncleanly surroundings.
The teacher should becotneacquatnted
in the district before the opening day of
school and have the classification if
school well in hand. Get ready, Don't
waste first week of school getting ready.
See that blackboards, library and other
Mipplies are ready for use. A good
start means a good school.
Parents should get eTerything in
readiness to start every child on the first
day. Few children are bright enough
to lose several weeks at opening and then
keep up with the work. Much of the
dislike of school is due to getting poor
start. As a rule those who start late
nan least afford to miss a day. Self
interest should prompt parents to make
some sacrifice to give prompt parents to
make some sacrifice to give the children
the most favorable opportunities. For
those who have not such interest the law
comet in to compel attendance.
The compulsory attendance law should
be strictly complied with. I f the law is a
necessary one every good citizen should
sec that it is enforced. If it is unneces
sary it should be repealed. All children
Itetvreen between 8 and 14 years must
attfjutj sonic school for half term. No
ono can be excused for half term until
he has already atteuded. The compul
sory law increased the enrollment aud
attendance last year. All districts have '
had time now to prepare for it and it is
cerpected that a better showing will be
made this year.
The law competes school boards to
publish a synopsis of "Attendance Law"
tn the newspapers or to post notices,
if boards do not promptly attend to it
editors should cull attention of board to
the law. The State Superintendent of
Public Schools distributed 75.OOO such
notices to the County Commissioners
' tid Superintendents Inut Spring to be
used now. A failure to publish or post
Motfce does not excuse any parent for
M ou-compliance with the law.
There are several mutters of minor
V-uportaitce. that call for careful attention.
It text books are changed at all do it at
opening of school. Good judgment
will decide to make no changes now.
Wait until after meetiug of ntxt legis
lature. The State Superintendent's
3.ipply of School Lws ami State Courses
of Study is exhausted. Forty thousand
capics of each hive been distributed in
rtst three years. It is well to leave a
Svision, of tlwje until after nest Legis
lature and to. the new State Superin-k.-iutent

Morgan County Republican.
The readers of this paper and the
public at large will notice by the
heading that a change has been made
so far as the Morgan County Demo
crat is concerned. The plant was
this week sold to V. W. Kinloch,
formerly of the Christian County Re
publican. As the new proprietor is
a Republican he takes charge of the
Democrat and at once transforms it
into the Morgan County Republican.
He has purchased the plant, good
will and the business with a view of
running a Republican paper tn ac
cord with his political faith, while
the general tone will be for the build
ing up of every interest calculated to
push Versailles and Morgan county
directly to the front.
The retiring owner has labored
hard to place this paper and its busi
ness on a basis worthy of patronage,
and the new owner steps in with no
strings tied to him, and is not hamp
ered in any sense. The Republican,
as it is hereafter to be known, '3 on a
good business footing and it remains!
for Mr. Kinloch to give it still greater
prestige as a factor in the future of
our city and county.
He comes well recommended, is a
man of superior judgment and above
all a practical newspaper man. He
has a good family who will become
citizens of Versailles while he will
concentrate his entire business inter
I wish to thank the people for the
many courtesies and favors shown me,

department of the Republican for the
present, white Mr. Kinloch will get
out and make the acquaintance of
the people and look after the busi
ness interests with which he is to be
identified. This purchase was not
forced nor has the sale been rail
roaded through in order to meet anv
private end other than a plain busi
ness proposition, hence all concerned
are fully satisfied. With a hope that
the new owner and proprietor will
attain the highest xn on the ladder
of. jwosperity, I step down and out

come to preach the doctrine of Re
publicanism as we believe it, to chal
lenge the wrong, and to uphold the
right as we see it. We come to Ver
sailles after mature deliberation, be
lieving that there is a field in this
county for another Republican paper.
We have been led to locate here be
cause we believe there is a greater
future for Versailles than for any
other town in the state of Missouri.
Far and wide throughout the state we
have heard people speak of the future
of this town.
The writer has been in the news

We have always conducted a clean
honorable business, and we desire to
say that we shall so deport ourselves
here. We have nothing but the kind
liest feelings for those who differ
from us politically, but we believe in
the party of Abraham Lincoln, James
CJ. Blaine and Theodore Roosevelt,
and will earnestly endeavor to pro
mulgate those doctrines in such man
ner as will give least offence to right
thinking men of all parties.
With our wife and four daughters
we expect to become residents of
your town and community.
Very sincerely yours,
W. W. Kinloch.
To Oar Subscribers.
In our purchase of the Democrat
we contracted to fill out all unexpir
ed subscriptions, so if you are paid
in advance you will receive the Re
publican to the end of time paid for,
when we hope you will like it so well
you can't do without it. To those
who arc in arrears, and desire to quit,
all we ask of you is to pay up and
quit square. All unpaid subscrip
tions are due and payable to the Re
publican. Call and see us, when in
town, and get acquainted, whether
you stay with us or not.
Change of Date.
Beginning with next week we shall
issue the Republican on Thursday.
1'hursday has been our day of publi
cation for over twenty years, and has
become a fixed habit, so hereafter,
when nothing happens to prevent, the
Republican will be mailed on Thurs
day of each week. This will neces
sitate a move on the part of adver
tisers and correspondents to catch on.

MEN PAST SIXTY IN DANGER
More than half of mankind over sixty
years of age suffer from kidney and
bladder disorders, usually enlargement
of prostate glands. This is both painful
and dangerous, and Foley's Kidney Cure
should be taken at the first sign of dan
ger, as it corrects irregularities and has
cured many old men of this disease.
Mr. Rodney Burnett, Rock port, Mo.,
writes: "I suffered with enlared prostate
gland and kidney trouble for years and
after taking two bottlesof Foley's Kidney
Cure I feel better than for twenty years,
although I am now 91 years old." D. C.
