-balloons are of two types, light- and

are faster, but are more sensitive to

divided into two classes, highs and lows.
We were caught in a low. The earlier

ihey lieaded northwest again and were

At 3:30 Sunday the sand supply began

Von Hoffman's balloon was made of
varnished cotton. It has a gas capacity

Have you tried to buy any stone

A Columbia housewife who wanted
to preserve eggs for the winter vis

She couldn't find any. All stores hail
sold out. As a last resort she ask
ed the delivery ma if from her gro
cery if he knew where she could gat
some. The delivery man looked at
her in surprise.
"What?" he askcL "Are you
making it, too?"
"Making what?" asked the house
wife. "Why, home brew," replied the
man. "That is the reason you can't
get any stone jars. They are aU
lieing used for home brew. But I
didn't thiuk you were doing it like
the rest."
The liousewife explained that she
desired the jars to put up eggs.

Investigation of Reported At

Would Do Little Damage
Corn Here, Says E. A.
Logan of Crops Bureau.
"Clear skies, a temperature in the low
thirties and a probable frost is the pre
diction for tomorrow morning, said
Grorce Itecder of the United" States
Weather Bureau. x
"From 85 per cent I o 90 per cent of
the corn is matured so that a light frost
tonight will not damage it much." said
E. A. Logan of the Crops Estimate Bu
reau. "However, a great deal of(damagr
would be done to the corn in the eastern
section of Missouri. Tlie season for corn
nlantinz betan late in that part of the
slate because of excessive rainfall in the
spring. Mudi of the coin was not plant
ed until June 15 which makes the time
for maturity come in the next ten days.
Mr. Logan said, "frost on the mature
corn would probably be beneficial since
it will take the sappiness out of the stalk
and retard further growth.
'Cotton picking in Southern Missouri
has just begun, he continued, and a
frost tonight or in the next week or ten
ilas would mean a great loss to the cot
ton producers.
When asied about ihe sudden change
in temperature, Mr. Ilcedcr said: "The

day evening swept down from the north

A sword of French make, of former
French ownership, and dated 1561, baa
been unearthed by C B. Cox, 807 Range
tine road. Rust has eaten its way
through the scabbard so modi as to make
dim, almost undecipherable, the follow
ing inscription:
"Afre Ttmple it St. rVtfeane Stflem.
ire. 1561."
The "Te" in Temple and the last "l"
in the data are doubtful because rust baa
partly covered them. There la a poa
sihilitT of the "I" being " in.hch
case the date would be 1566. Traaslaled,
ike insRintlon read": '"Moaaieaf TTeav
pie of St, Etienne, September, 1561.'
Accepting the deciphering aa correct.
tW-word "Ttiaak'W isr the xtuarof
the inarrwlVnsado-tbe aword. Tbenthe
sword waa manafactured in St. Etienne,
a French dry of 15O080. which ha long
since been engagod in the asanofacture of
war material.
But how did tha sworor -reach Amer
ica? Who left It on what ia now a
town lot on Rangeline road, but what
was once a battle ground for while men
and Indiana? Perhaps a valiant French
man with LaSalle'i first explorer who
came op the Mississippi River left it
there after drenching the field with the
blood of his assailant. Some hearty
pioneer with Meriwether Lewi and
William Clark nay have found this aword
his trusty friend. Who know but that
the red-skin regarded It owner aa a
veritable terror?
There i Is a possibility that the first
owner of ihe old (word waa a knight. If
ihe date engraved on it is 1566. the
name on it probably refers to the first
owner and St. tlieane means we oi
lier of St Etienne. Thi order wa form
ed in 1562 by the grand-duke Game 1
of Medivts, in memory of his victory over
tho French at Marciano, 1554.
Hence, the man who left thi sword
in Columbia nay have been of knightly
narentaie or lineages Who know but
tint he waa one of the Knight of St.
Etienne who distinguished themsdres
several limes in battle with the infidels?
Or. if this same man waa not renowned
for his valor ia European battles, per
haps he lived up to his knightly ancestry
by defeating the barbarous savages.
The Order of St. Etienne-was iastJ-
luted in 1561. Hence, the first owner of
the sword found by Mr. Cos could not
lave been a knight of, thi order unless
the date on the aword is 1566 Instead
of 1561.
