Edward Wesley Fouts. Passaic and community was rudely shocked when it became known that the subject of this sketch had passed over into the Great Beyond at his home in Passaic on last Friday even ing at 6 o'clock. . It Tvasa shock to everyone because it was not thought until a very shert time before his death that there was any immediate danger. In Ed Fouts was a citizen that everyone held in the highest re spect and esteem, and his life, meas ured by a strict standard of duty toward his family and all his fellow mortals, was an exemplary life. He will be sorely missed by everyone. He was about 44 years old, being born in Morgan county, Ohio, Feb ruary 1st, 1870. In the fall of 1891 he came to Bates county and two years later was married to Kittie Shealey. He has since resided in Bates county. Eight children were born to the union, seven of whom with their mother survive him. He was buried at Mt. Olivet church yard in the presence of a large num ber of his friends who were there to pay their last tribute to his mortal re mains. The sermon was preached by the Rev. Reed of Liberty, from 23rd Psalm, 4th verse.

United Druff Company 13 'East Side iSquare Phone 15 Butler, Missouri Mobilizing the Missouri Mule The mobilization of the Missouri mule has been ordered and is now under way. This was expected. The black, bay, brown, gray, iron-gray and even the celebrated "blue mules1' of Missouri are as much a part of any general mobilization as is the general staff, the chief of that staff, the commissary department or the sanitary division of anybody's army. Of course, the European situation has caused an advance in the price of mules just as it made more valuable arsenals, dry docks, transports, good generals and war material. There fore the mobilization of the Missouri mule at eastern and southern sear ports. He must take his chances of capture at sea like any other contra band of war, having achieved that distinction because of his activities in recent conflicts. A motor truck loqks very satisfac tory in the moving pictures of mili tary maneuvers and is a marvel of military efficiency over military high ways. However, it appears that the chariot of Mars is not to be propelled by gasoline. The Missouri mule re mains the motor unit par excellence when that chariot strikes cross coun try. He is a motor that can gather the raw miiterial of his profiling power off the country as he goes. Unworried by lack of supply depots, lack of roads and lack of mechani cians, he responds to the . lash of the "blacksnake" whip and gets through somehow where gasoline meekly sub mits to circumstances. No wonder the Missouri mule is mobilizing and his price has Republic. Costly Lesson Because he refused to turn to the right and permit the passage of an automobile which had overtaken him and blocked the auto for a mile, de spite the requests, of the driver of the car to let him by, Roy Harrison, residing near Fulton, was arrested and fined, fine and costs amounting to $29.50. Harrison seemed to think it quite a joke to hold the road against the car, but he knows more about the rules of the road now, although the lesson was costly. The provision of the road law applying in this case fol lows: "When any such person operating a motor vehicle shall overtaek any such horse, animal or other vehicle, shall, as soon as practicable, turn aside to the right so as to allow free passage on the left hand side. " The penalty for the violation of this law js a fine of not less than $25 nor more than $100 for the first offense, and for a second violation a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $500, imprisonment in the county jail or for not less Hill Times. than 60 days.

Morrison Bros., lost a nice brood sow Sunday morning.- Corn Grows High in Boone Columbia, Mo., Aug. 10. Farmers all over Boone county have' been go ing through their "cornfields lately and picking out the tallest stalks to bring to Columbia for exhibit. Sev eral specimens more than 15 feet high have been brought in, usually with the apology that even taller ones could have been found if the farmer had only had time to look for them.

Nelson, assistant secretary of the State Board of Agriculture, re cently brought from there a stalk measuring 15 feet 1 J inch.
