From Over the County. s The Marceline Journal is eighteen years old and still improving. v Several Marceline people were id Texas last week looking at land. The Browning Leader-Record en tered its twenty-first year last week and is in a healthy and prosperous condition. ' D. C. Bartlett, of southwest of Lin- neua, has a 100-acre field of corn that he claims will yield 100 bushels per acre. Next! Dr. Thomas McClary haa. been se cured to lecture in Linneus ou the nieht of November 4 on the "Ameri can Home." St. Catherine has a new M. E church that cost $1500. It will be dedicated by Presiding Elder Burris the second Sunday in this month. Ajax Fleming, editor of the Bray mer Comet and the "original Roose velt man," has been appointed United States consul at Stanbridge, Quebec, Canada. The Brookfield Argus was 22 years old lust week. It has grown and prospered every year of its life and is one of the best country newspapers in the state. Dr. W. Roy Adams, of Laredo, and Miss Edna Fetty were united in marriage last Wednesday at the home of the bride's parents, Judge and Mrs. Fetty, in Linneus. H. H. Mathews has sold his farm two miles south of Brookfield, known 11 ii . Til! as trie rtoweii iarm, 10 an Illinois man for $16,000, which is nearly $67 per ncrt Mr. Mathewj has two or three more good Linn county farms. A farmer brought to the Leader- Record office in Browning some ears of corn , that measured from' ten-to fourteen inches, in length and seven to ten inches in circumference. He claims his field will average ninety bushels to the acre. The Bulletin has planned well to secure pie material ior ine winter months by starting a pumpkin con test. To the one bringing the largest pumpkin to that office on or before Oct. 14 the Bulletin will be sent two years free. Here is a good chance for the farmers of this county to help out a deserving editor and get a good newspaper two years without any cash expenditure. , No. 14, the fast through Wabash tram to St. Louis, crashed into the middle of the west-bound passenger train to Omaha, at Bedford, while running twenty-five or thirty miles an hour at two o'clock Saturday mor- ning.and the third chair car and the east-bound engine were derailed. The occupants of the chair car, which was well filled, escaped death or at least serious injury miraculously. xne - ii mi coach was turned on its side by the force of the collision and the passen gers went over witn it. .sji in me coach were badly shaken up, but that appears to be the extent of the injur ies sustained. - t; rA : merchant ' who had a store in two small towns tried an experiment. He put a bargain counter in each store containing the same articles at the same prices. In the newspaper of one village he advertised his special sale counters. In the paper of the other he did not. Tn one month in the village where he did not adver tise he sold $984 worth of goods. In the store where he did advertise he sold the same goods amounting to $1724. In commenting on the result of the experiment the merchant says: People who got the paper with the advertisement 'would pass by one store and drive for miles to the other one for what they could have gotten at the same price at my store at their door, bat they did not know it was there." .

The fourth annual meeting of the Laclede Mutual Fire and Lightning insurance company will be held at Secretary May bee's office in Laclede next Saturday, October 14. This is an important meeting: and ail the policy holders are urged to be in at tendance.' 'Teddy" Straub, wanted for con ducting a gambling house in Mead- ville, but who escaped when he heard warrant was out for him, was ar rested at Breckenridge Monday .night. While an officer was returning with him Tuesday he jumped out the car wind w while the train was in motion and made good his escape. He will probably not bother Meadville any more. On the train from Kansas City Wednesday evening we met J. A. Elliott, a former citizen and for many years a veil known mercnant in clede. Mr. Elliott is now general land agent for the Burlington railroad in Missouri, Iowa and Illinois. He is now engaged in locating some new towns alo; g the Burlington's' new line south from Jacksonville to Southern Illinois. His family have just moved from Troy to their new home at Bellflower. One of the neatest, cleanest and best business houses in Laclede is The Leading Grocery, of which C. B. Welsh is proprietor. This store is always kept well ' stocked with the best and purest groceries, both fancy and staple, and flour that cannot be excelled. Special attention is paid to the country trade ' and its produce business is very large and. still grow- mg. its large and increasing dusi- ness has been built up by the excel lence of its goods and the courteous treatment always accorded to all its customers. Dr. Henry Shook, an old and high ly respected citizen, died at his home in Bucklin on Fri luy ui' last week at the age of 87 years and 10 months. He had been a resident of Bucklin 30 years and in active practice of medi cine over 60 years. He served two terms as coroner of this county, and was a , member of the Linn county pension .examining board for four years. He was well known and a highly respected citizen and stood high in his profession. . The funeral was held last Sunday, conducted by the Masonic fraternity. The city council tightened the lid on Chillicothe Monday night, when it adopted an ordinance restricting the signing of saloon petitions or remon strances to resident real estate owners and proprietors of mercantile estab lishments, and requiring each saloon keeper to file a bond for $1,000 signed by five or more responsible citizens, binding him to remain closed Sunday and observe all other ordinances af fecting saloons. Mueh.tnmbie has been experienced by the mayor and, police in enforcing the Sunday closing law. Chillicothe's saloons are not under the jurisdiction of the state au thorities. The first arrest for violat ing the Sunday law was made Wed nesday. OCTOBER 7. 1905. Some Evening Reveries. In the very beginning it was decid ed by the highest authority that it was not good for man to be alone, and we don't wonder at it when we look about us and see -how much some men expect of their wives. We read somewhere recently that "of all creatures in the world, a man is the most helpless alone. A chicken two hours out of the shell can take better care of itself than a man can." Of course a woman wrote that, and the next conclusion is that that woman has washed her husband's neck and eara,ever since she has had him and has made him just the helpless creat ure that he is. The question is often asked. "Is marriage a failure?" We say "No," if you don't expect too much of it; but don't run the risk of trying to re form a man after marriage. In all probability you will be disappointed if you do. If your husband used to bacco when you married him, the Bi ble forbids curtain lectures afterward, for it says, "He that is filthy, let him be filthy still." There is a bright side to everything, if you will only look till you find it.N If your husband smokes, be thankful be doesn't chew; if he smokes and chews both, be thankful he doesn't drink; if he does all three, be thankful he won't live long. There are very few children indeed that. ever get over their early training. In my native town there stands, in front of the school building, a large oak tree. When this tree was quite small, a boy climbed to the top of it, and, swinging off, by his weight pull ed it over to the ground. It still shows the effect of that bending. How many people eo through lite . wun their characters all bent and warped for the want of proper early training. Being gentle and tender in her nature, woman comes in close contact with children, wielding an influence that no one else possibly could. Had it not been for the wise, consecrated Christian mother, this country might never have had a character so noble as that of George Washington. Of how many mothers might it be said as a great man once said of his moth er: "All that I am, or ever hope to be, I owe to my mother." , Home should be made the most in teresting and loved spot on earth, not merely four square walls of wood and brick; it should be the fountain of civ ilization; the very word should touch every fiber of the soul and strike ev ery chord of the human heart with its angelic fingers; a place where thought is centralized on the higher and bet ter things of life, bringing forth in the highways and byways an influ ence that will be felt by all with whom it comes in contact. It should be a place where the heart is; a place where our feet may leave but not our hearts, a place where angels unfold their wings, the place we love best, because it is the place where mother is. Men can build the house and wall it in, a resistance against storms and elements, but the man with all his genius and artisan science cannot make the home; that ever has and ever will be the task of woman. It is she alone that can bring to .it warmth and beauty; here she reigns supreme. Let our homes be places of love, joy and brightest sunshine, places of enduring love that outlasts the wed ding day, and which produces a life of one long, unbroken honeymoon, the molding place of character, a place where the child breathes an at mosphere perfumed by the choicest flowers of heaven, where it finds the greatest earthly security in mother's loving, fostering care. $1.00. A YEAR LACLEDE SCHOOLS DOING GOOD WORK. A Commercial Department to be Added the Hijht School Work. te The first month of school ended last week. Although it was the first, it is conceded to have been the best month of school we have ever had in Laclede. The total enrollment for the month was 224, with an average daily attendance of 209. Under nor mal conditions, the school year so propitiously begun will certainly be a most successful one. For the purpose of accommodating many pupils who desire to take a commercial course, Prof. Sipple has arranged to have a class in bookkeep ing. This will be a course worth the consideration of some who have not yet been enrolled in our school. In this course attention will be given to commercial arithmetic, business En glish and penmanship. Prof. Sipple is a graduate of the commercial de partment of the Gem City Business College, of Quincy, 111., which is suf ficient evidence of his qualification in that work. The class will be organized Mon day morning, October 9. If any non residents wish to take a commercial course, it will pay them to confer with Prof. Sipple at their earliest opportu nity. Thirteen non-resident pupils have taken up work in our High School thus far this year. Of course, there is room for others. School Report. Report of Sunny Point school for month beginning Sept. 4, 1905, and ending Sept. 29, 1905: Enrollment, male, 10, female 6; total, 16; total number of days attendance by all pu pils for the month, 294; average daily attendance, 14 7-10; number attend ing eyery day, 10; number of cases of tardiness, 2; truancy, 0; corporal pun ishment, 0; number of volumes in li brary, 29. Those attending every day were Chester, Minnie, Oscar, Petie and Herman Billings, Via, Essie and Amanda Glenn, Emmons Peer and Thornie Lamme. Those whose deportment was 100 throughout the month were Via, Es sie and Amanda Glenn, Thornie Lamme, Bloyce Deininger, Oscar, Petie and Herman Billings, Roy Luy ster and Glenn Stoneburner. The pupils have taken up the school work in a manner that certain ly is insoirine. There seems to be a lack of interest on the part of the pa trons, sinpe none of them come in to visit us, but I hope they will try to find time to visit our school in the near future and thus encourage tHeir children as well as teacher. Though the enrollment is very small, yet what is lacking in number is made up in interest. The school is badly in need of a globe, dictionary, chart and wall maps, which are not only necessary but essential in the highest sense of the word, for the proper maintenance of a school. Visitors for the month were Misses Aletha "Wright, Edith and Lena Het rick, Messrs. John Peer and William Fife. A very cordial 'invitation is extended to friends " and patrons to visit us and inspect our work. - Oar motto is, "Not how much,' bat how well." Very; truly yours, A. J. Clevengke, Teacher. Preaching at the Baptist church Sunday morning and evening at the usual hoars. BasLaess meeting Sat urday afternoon ? Kind words are like jewels in the heart, never to be forgotten, but per haps to cheer by their memory a long, sad life, while words of cruelty are like darts in the bosom, wounding scars that will be borne to the grave by their victims.
