munity. Henry Giessing, Jr., left this week

not be necessary for anyone to go

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

her than at any time since the ope

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
Music by the Schubert Student Or
chestra. Address of Welcome President Ak
ers. Musical Selections Megaphone Mel

Old Fashioned Spelling Match, the
sides being "chosen up" by T. B.

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.
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

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

An Important Change of
Interest to You!
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

human service nearly is planned nowadays

This is as it should vbc. Certainly,

and distinct grades. No intelligent

William Hicks died of senility at
the County Infirmary here at 7:30
A. M.. Monday, October 2, 1916, at
the age of 78 years. Mr. Hicks was
born in North Carolina and came to
this state when a small boy with his
grand parents, John and Holly Jor
don, his mother and his three, broth
ers, Joseph, James and b'arrell Hicks.
They settled on a farm of 800 acres on
I Castor River in St. Francois county.
' In his young days he dealt in mules,
j later he went into the drug business
at Liberty ville, and then at Patton,
Bollinger Comity, Mo. In 1892 he
opened up an undertaking business
at Patton but because of bis generous
spirit he lost money in this through
bad collections. He retired about
I960 and went to Marble Hill to re
gain his lost health. I It was found
that he had made heavy investments
ill oil stock that never netted any re
turns. He lived a few vears with a
! nephew. John Hicks, of ilonnc Terre,
i but after this nephew was killed in a
mine accident, lie was removed to the
County Infirmary, where he has been
j almost if not entirely helpless for
! three years. Mr. Hicks became a
' member of the Christian church at
I Lihertyville at an early age and lived
a consistent christian life. He was
a member of the Masonic Lodge. He
j was never married and leaves to
, mourn his death, a brother and many
distant relatives and a host of friends.
Although having no family of his own
he was always very fond of children,
and was familiarity known as "Uncle
Hill." His remains were interred at
Hicks Chapel within a short distance
of where he spent his boyhood days.
May he rest in peace. K.
