School Trustees Elected.
Saturday, Aug. 1 was the day for
the election of school trustees in nil
the school districts of the county, in
accordance with the new school law,
which was published in a recent is
sue of the Courier.
Fulton county has 29 school dis
tricts and in all of these but 27
elections were held.
The trustees elected from the vari
ous sub-districts of each educational
division will be convened at the time
and place designated by the County
Superintendent and organize by
electing a chairman and secretary.
The chairmen of the various division
boards constitute the county board,
of which the County Superintendent
is chairman. The meetings will be
held some time this month.
Following are the trustees elected
and their district:

The trustees for the districts that
did not hold elections will be ap
pointed by the division board.
Miss Dora Smith, County Superin
tendent, informs us that enough
trustees were elected in each sub-
district to organize. She. is very
much pleased at the result of the
new plan as far as it has been tried.
Heretofore the voters in some of the
districts held no elections, but in
twenty of the twenty-seven districts
of the county, elections were held on
above date and much interest was
manifested. This is as it should be.

Thieves Make Failure.
Unknown parties made an attempt
to steal C L. Walker's launch, the
"Ruth," Sunday night. After drift
ing down the river three miles and
finding they could not operate the
engine, the would-be-thieves paddled
to the Missouri shore, and abandon
ed the project. They took with
them a rug from the boat and pos
sibly a few other small articles.
Hollis Kirk, who looks after the
launch, did not miss her until Mon
day morning. The doors had been
unlocked with duplicate keys and
the engine properly coupled up with
the exception of the spark circuit.

hearted over the destruction of his
machine. After flying 200 miles
over Switzerland, going as high as

While his machine, 423 feet long,
was on the ground, it was overturn

engine and it was burned up.
The government has decided to
pay the $125,000 bonus he lost by
not getting back home with the ma
chine and the Count will build anoth

A Peculiar Problem.
R T. Tyler, president of the Hick
man Bank, was led to remark Fri
day, on account of a shortage of
small change, that one of the pe
culiar problems of a small bank is
the continual drain on subsidiary
coin. It is ncticable that hundreds
of people enter a bank daily and get
change for bills, while practically
none ever bring in small denomina
tions and ask for larger ones.
One unacquainted with the bank
ing business would naturally think
the small coins would come back to
the bank in the way of deposits
but such is not the case. On the
other hand, the bank usually orders
about $2,000 a month in silver to
meet the demand for change, and'
this thing keeps up year in and year
cut. The government is always able
to fill these orders but the problem
is how does it find its way back to
the treasury department?

Referring to the results following
local newspaper advertising an ex

A newspaper has 5,000 readers
for each 1,000 subscribers. A mer
chant who puts out 1,000 hand bills
gets 300 or 400 more people to
read them, if the boy who is trusted
to distribute them does not chuck
them under the side walk. The
hand bills cos.t as much as a half
column advertisement in the home
paper. All the women and girls
and half the men and boys read the
advertisement. Result t h e mer
chant who uses the newspaper has
3,000 more readers to each 1,000
There is no estimating the amount
of business that advertising does not
bring to a merchant, but each dollar
invested in advertising brings to the.
investor somewhere from $20 to $10O
worth, of business.
J. M. Tankersley, ot Dorena, one
of Missouri's prosperous farmers,
dropped in the Courier sanctum' Mon
day, and engaged another year's
happiness. Mr. lankersley has al
ways farmed and says he would do
nothing else but he reminds us that
the newspaper men too often assert
that a farmer is the most independ
ent man on earth and that he has
nothing much to do but enjoy life.
In explaining the other side" of the
farmer's lite, he says we overlook
the fact that when winter cotaes and
the blizzard's on the wing, the farm
er has something else to do besides
toasting his feet in the oven and read
ing the Hickman Courier. That
there are other things to disturb him
besides the call to a banquet of mince:
pies and other luxuries.
The industrious farmer begins
work before the sun thinks of putt
ing up. With his soul shrouded in
gloom he proceeds to build a fire and
soften his boots with a sledge ham
mer. He then takes a lantern and
shovels his way to the barn and feeds
the hogs. It is then time to feed the
newly arrived calf which seems to
delight in butting a pail of milk over
the tiller of the soil until he only
needs to be stamped to pass for a
p ack a ge of oleomargarine. He
crawls through the wire fence and
digs the hay out of the snow, feeds
the cow, cleans the stable, gathers
the frozen chicks, chases a stray pig
worth about 25 cents four miles and
does not catch it, doctors a sick:
horse, freezes his fingers and gets:
kicked by a one-eyed mule, and
when the gloaming comes and quaint
ness broods over all the earth he has
a single half hour to meditate and;
wonder how he will pay his taxes.
After allj "man is of few days nnd
full of trouble" even the farmer.
Perhaps you have noticed that
when a woman says- "there's no use
talking" she keeps right on talking-,,
just the same.
