The annual convention of the
Christian Church ot Missouri will
be held In Fulton next year. Rev.
T. E. Winter, pastor of tho church
presented an Invitation from Ful
Santa Fe Trail
The committee of women from
the Daughters of the American
Revolution appointed to mark his
toric spots along the Santa Fe
Trail in Missouri preparatory to
the placing of permanent markers
by the state, completed their work
and returned to Kansas City Sat
urday afternoon. The committer
was composed of Mrs, John Van
Brunt, Mrs. James H. Austin, Mrs.
Mark S. Salisbury and Miss Eliza
beth Gentry. Mr. Van Brunt and
Miss Mary' Gentry Accoftnpanled
them. They motored as far cast
as Old Franklin, where the Santa
Fe Trail began.
In all thirty-four stakes were
set at points whero permanent
stone markers are to be placed.
The state has provided $3500 for
the pormanent markers and the
money win uu avauauic uuring
the coming year. Chief among the
historic places marked by the com
mittee were: Courthouse Square
at Independence, Watts Mill, near
Dallas; New Santa Fe, Cave Spr
ing, Tnbo Spring, the slto of Fort
Orleans, Kayscr Spring, Wavcrly
Villago, Arrow Rock, thrco old
achoolhouscs, Malta Bend and Old
Franklin. Markers, were placed
In practically all of the towns.
At Independence tho women of
the town have organized to obtain
a fund of $1,000, to make tho mark
er there more pretentious than
tho state will provide. A similar
movement was started by the
committees at Marshall, Lexington
and Boonvillc.

1092 and the first of the mbafti
will have served in that capacity
ten years and one month. Pre
viously to that he had worked
for the old company for several
years and his promotion comes as
a well deserved reward for faith
ful service.
Whito the many friends ot Mr.

Kim on his promotion they regret
very much that tho change makes
necessary their moving from Sla
