" Now is the time of all times to sub scribe for The Times and keep abreast of the times. This is to be one cf the greatest campaign years, and you cannot afford to do without thfs papei in the midst of the battle that is just now beginning. J. F. Miller is again able to be at his table in Gierse's tailoring shop, af ter a severe nine-weeks' tussle with typhoid fever, which has left him in a somewhat depleted condition.

Mr. .and Mrs. Marbury, accompanied by Helen Graves, motored to Cape Girardeau last Saturday to attend the Methodist Conference. This was their first extended trip in their automo bile, and it didn't prove all smooth going. On their return home Sunday they experienced three punctures and had to invest in a new tire.

OPERATION FOR BRAIN TUMOR Little Anna D., youngest daughter of Rev. J. M. Bailey, was operated on last Saturday at the Children's Hos pital in St. I.ouis, connected with the Barnes Hospital, for what the X-ray experts had diagnosed as a tumor on the brain, and believed to be the cause of he partial paralysis. The apcration, however, disclosed the fact that there was no tumor there. The operators removed a small foreign particle of some sort, which is to be scientifically ' examined, but it is said was not the cause of the paral ysis, so it cannot be said whether the severe operation "Hi benefit her in anv way or not. . Little Anna D. was under the op erator's hands about live hours, and during the operation blood from her father was transfused into her veins to sustain life. She has since had a number of convulsions, resulting from the swelling of the head, but these are diminishing, and Mr. liai ley in a letter written Wednesday -ays he is feeling more hopeful for her than at any time since the ope ration, and that the physicians en courage him in the hope that she will recover.

LITERARY SOCIETY PROGRAM POSTPONEf The Farmington Literary Societ' program which was to have been giv en to-night (Friday) has been post noned unti) next Friday evening, Oc tober 13th. This was rendered neces sary by the need of more time foi preparation for some of the numbers together with the absence of several participants upon that night, and al so because the excelsior Society of Flat River holds its meetings upon the second and fourth Fridays of each month, beginning next Friday night At that time the following program excepting unavoidable changes, will be given: Music by the Schubert Student Or chestra. Address of Welcome President Ak ers. Musical Selections Megaphone Mel ody Boys. Old Fashioned Spelling Match, the sides being "chosen up" by T. B. Chandler and Prof. Geo. Raines. Vocal Solo Miss Anna Craig. Tid-Bits of Teutonic Tom-foolery the Duzenbiff Twins. Euphonium Solo Master Leslie Ev ans. Selection High School Chorus. Piano Duet Misses Martha Raines and Nola Spradling. The program for the next meeting of the Society will be read aloud from the platform Friday night, and this custom will be followed through out the year. In addition, the pro gram will be published in the local papers each alternate week. It is ex pected that those whose names are placed upon any program will re spond without other notification, though the President will call up all of those he can reach, and notify them of their appointment upon the pro gram. If "your name's written there" and for some-reason you cannot serve, it will be much appreciated if you will notify the President or the pro gram director by post-card or phone at the earliest possible moment, so something else can be substituted. One of the important purposes of the work of the Society is the devel opment of talent and providing an opportunity for those who are study ing along any musical or literary line to be heard in public. This means that when you arc placed upon the program it is not expected that your performance will rival that of some famous celebrity but it means that you have an opportunity for the legiti mate employment of your art, what ever it is, before a sympathetic au dience, and thus gain something from it yourself. Whether you are a de bater, a reader, a singer, an instru mentalist or what not, show your loy alty to and willingness to support n worthy municipal enterprise, by ren dering and doing your part. The So ciety does not ask money from its members nor from the public. It asks service only and a kind of ser vice that is broadening and worth while for you, as well as enjoyable nnd uplifting to those before whom you appear. CONTINUED TO REGULAR TERM Jude Peter II. Huck convened Circuit Court last Monday, five cases being set down for hearing for that day. The petition for the dissolution of the Doe Run Lead Company Was continued to November 13, the first day of the regular November term of eourt, pending a demurrer, the attor neys having been slow in filing their briefs, thus not giving Judge Huek time to consider them. The other cases also went over to the Novem ber term by agreement. HELP YOURSELF BY , HELPING OTHERS. The reading room of the Public Library should be kept open six nights out of each week. The funds in the Library Treasury at present are not sulticient to hire sonic one Jo serve at the Library ill the evening. Several public-spirited citizens have generously volunteered their services toward 1. celling the reading room open since tire Library was inaugurat ed. More volunteers are needed. By taking charge of the reading room for an evening, you will not only .crvo tin- peoptt who desire to read clean literature, but you will find at the Library a wonderful opportunity for developing in voursclf the habit of systematic reading.

Beginning Monday morning, November the 6th, we will discontinue the old fashioned, hap-hazard method of making deliveries. On that day we will run FOUR DELIVERIES DAILY to all parts of Farmington. The first will leave our store at EIGHT o'clock in the morning. The second will leave at TEN o'clock. The third will leave at TWO o'clock in the afternoon. The fourth and last for the day will leave at FOUR o'clock p. m. There will be an extra delivery on Saturdays leaving the store at 5:30 p. m. This cuts out all of the uncertainty, delays, waiting, disarranged plans and inconvenience you have hitherto endured because of unsystematic delivery, and enables you to KNOW TO A DOT when you'll get your order. It is one more link in the chain of SERVICE to eostum ers for which this great store is becoming famous. Trains and street cars, mail delivery, performances of every kind in fact every human service nearly is planned nowadays "on schedule time." The guess work is done away with. And every systematic delivery of merchandise is coming into use. It saves time and trouble for you, it saves money for us. EVERY PENNY THAT WE SAVE BY CUTTING DELIVERY COST IS TURNED COUNTY SCHOOL NOTES. Mrs. Jessie Huff, teacher of the Valley Forge school, reports no tar dies for the lirst month. Mrs. Hul'f believe- that it is just as necessary for pupils to be punctual in rural communities as in the towns. Who dares to s4y that she is wrong? The Del.assus school under the di rection of Miss Anna E. Overall is getting the alternation system well grounded. The State Superintendent requires that the alternation system be used this year before the County Superintendent is authorized to gram eighth grade certificates of graduation. This is as it should vbc. Certainly, the rural teacher is badly enough handicapped without the additional strain Of maintaining eight separate and distinct grades. No intelligent student of the alternation system can fail to be iis ardent and enthusiastic supporter. Virgil 1 O'BtUUUM, the popular young school-master at lllldebright. lias been able by virtue of the good team-work of his pupils to add much to the attractiveness of his school grounds He and his pupils are now planning Im transform the appearanre of their school-room by the addition of suitable pictures, the display ot drawings and written work, and by decorations suggestive of the season. It is Imped that his patrons will visit him frequently and give him the en couragement which he deserves. Miss Ethel Walsh, teacher of the Walnut' Grove school, reports that some substantial improvement! are soon to be made on her building. She arid lur pupils aro preparing an enter tainment to be given for the purpose of getting some lamps ami other need ed material for their school as a first step in making it a social center. Most of her practice is done before work hours, she and many of her pupiN often reaching the school build ing ;.- early as seven o'clock. This is .rcitir plan than to detain pupils after -rhool. especially when the pupils la,ye any distance to travel in getting to their homes. Supt. Joseph King, of Ste. Gene vieve comity, passed through Kann ington on last Tuesday. Supt King is a hustler and as usual had some ex cellent irleas that are new. are prac tical, and arc original.
