Both stores are doing a thriving business. An extensive tie . trade is carried on, the merchants tak ing care of that business. The school house is amply large, and modernly equipped, heated and ventilated by the Smith system, which speaks well for the good judgment and intelligence of the people; also free textbooks are furnished all pupils. It is a good omen, to see the boys and girls so highly valued. But this advanced school spirit is very manifest wherever you go, a good augury for the future of our nation. Next, the town of Avon attracted our attention, and was reached in the afternoon of the 28th ult., partly by rail and partly by foot, the foot part being responsible for such an early arrival. Avon is a real country vil lage, and is also in the Saline valley, near the head waters of that limpid stream. The industrial activities of Avon consist of a general store and postoffice, school house and a black smith shop, the latter institution be ing a necessary asset of any well reg ulated community. Mr. C. A. Bovd. the busy and accommodating merchant and postmaster, certainly is doing a lucrative business as he supplies a vast territory which is occupied by thrifty and prosperous farmers, who are liberal purchasers. The school is being taught by Rev. Coffer, a teach er of experience and erudition. Mr. Howard Price lives in the suburbs of the village and is somewhat engaged in the chicken and mule business. He is familiarly addressed by his neigh bors as the preacher. We did not learn whether he received this sou briquet on account of his extreme piety or his super-extreme loquacity, but he is co-called, nevertheless. Completing our work at Avon, where we were so comfortably and pleasantly entertained in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Mertclle, after a few hours' tramping, found ourselves at cotrman, the metropolis of the Saline Valley section. This is certainly a real live town, for here is heard the honk of the Ford which is the syno nymn of modernism, and all things else partake of the game, homelike (Farmington) surroundings. The business enterprises of Coffman con sist of two modern department stores, a bank, an excellent blacksmith and repair shop, and an ex-saloon. The Coffman Mercantile Co. is a spacious store and is full from cellar to gar ret with the' choicest needs of its ex tensive patronage. Mr. Benj. C. Gra ham, manager of this popular store, sees that nothing is left undone that would contribute to the benefits of not without hone. How serious a defection in the Dem ocratic ranks over prohibition legisla tion will affect the proposed organiza tion of the House is causing Demo crats some concern. About a dozen "wet" Northern Democrats have split with the Southern "dry" leaders, and yesterday they showed their independ ence by defeating a judiciary bill greatly desired by Southern Demo crats. Both sides are threatening re taliation in the way of committee as signments if the Democrats organize thet next House. Democratic leaders hope, however, to effect a truce be fore a vote on the speakership comes. 102 Members Retire. One hundred and two members of Congress closed their legislative ca reers on March 4th, when the sixty fourth session ended by constitutional limitation, ut mis numDer lb are Senators. They are: Bryan of Florida; Catron, New Mexico; Chilton, West Virginia; CJapp, Minnesota; Clark, Wyoming; Dupont, Delaware; Johnson, Maine; Kerne, Indiana; Lea, Tennessee; Lippitt, Rhode Island; Martine, New Jersey; O'Gorman, New York; Oliver, Penn sylvania; Sutherland, Utah; and Works of California. The number who retired to private life is unusually large in both House and Senate. Among the more pic turesque of these figures in the House are: Sparkman of Florida, who has serv ed 22 years successively; Representa tive Bennett of New York, who en joys the unique distinction of having been in and out of Congress three times; Representative Murrav of Ok lahoma, familiarly known as "Alfalfa Bill", and Representative of Texas. Representative McCorkle of South Carolina enjoys the distinction of serving one of the shortest terms on record. He was a member for onlv eight days. Representative Rucker of Georgia served eight weeks. Both filled vacancies caused. by dea'.h. MISSOURI HOUSE VOTES TO INDORSE PRESIDENT lwo nights with a carnival com pany at Flat River, Mo., were enough to disillusion 16-year-old Dorothy am gleton as to the romance of stage life. Dorothy was at home today with her mother, Mrs. Mary Singleton, 5175 Von Versen avenue, washing dishes and tearfully reiterating the promise to confine her artiBtic career to the canvas. Dorothy was a regular attendant at the performances of the Park Opera company before it migrated to Kan sas City. The inspiration gathered from the shows met opportunity in an advertisement in a St. Louis morn ing newspaper, which solicited girls between 16 and 25 for carnival work. Dorothy called on the theatrical agent at a Market street hotel. He snipped her to Flat River. The disil lusion set in when Dorothy set her eyes on the girls of the troupe. They were nothing like the chorus girls she had admired at the Park. Then, the position the manager gave her was not romantic. It was to induce bashful young men of Flat Kiver to venture on the dance floor, a privilege bartered at a "nickel a throw". The girl confided her predic ament to two traveling salesmen, and they advised her to return to mother. After the performance Friday night Dorothy counted her money and found she had just enough for a ticket to Festus. At Festus she met a nice sta tion master, who placed her in the home of a woman friend for the night and telegraphed to Dorothy's mother: "Mamma, can I come home? Ans wer quick. "DOROTHY." Dorothy was brought home last night by her mother. St. Louis Star. RANK FOOLISHNESS Yod occasionally see it stated that colds do not result from cold weather. That is rank foolishness.

The House today adopted without a dissenting vote, a resolution introduced by Rep resentative Lee oi jasper countv urg ing the Missouri Delegation in Con gress to support the President in the international crisis. The resolution was: "Be it resolved, that the House of, Kcpresentatives or the Forty-ninth General Assembly does hereby indorse the able, patriotic and courageous ac tion of President Woodrow Wilson in the controversy between this srovem- ment and the Imperial government of well appointed and shares in a great degree the large patronage of that rich section. But of major import ance, not only to Coffman, but to the vast and fertile section surrounding it, is the banking institution there. That institution, with the genial and affable cashier, Mr. Richard Adams, Jr., is the most popular and cherished place in the little city. Mr. Adams knows the banking business well and is in his right atmosphere when be hind the counter. Mr. Bauer, the popular smith, is as busy as the real, or supposed, bee in a tar bucket. The saloon ex's real well and the devout will and wish of the best citizenry of that prosperous little city is that it will soon make its exit to a more con genial clime, Night finding us still distant from the Hub, Farmington, we were taken in charge by our erstwhile county man and friend, Mr. Ed Turley. Mr. Turley is the proud possessor of one of the best farms in Southeast Mis souri, known as the Col. Joseph Coff man farntj an old Virginia gentleman of the highest type. The residence (but mansion then) now is a large brick structure beautifully situated in a large black walnut grove, iust out side limits. This has been the scene or many important gatherings, as Mr Coffman was a man of exeat imnor. tance and influence and historically a prince of entertainers. This was a favorite resort of Thos. H. Benton and men of like affairs. Here many im portant State and National questions nave oeen discussed and initiated. Near here our popular townsman and popular family grocer of Coffman first saw the light of day, and here today you will find the finest herd of Poland Herefords in Southeast Missouri, to say nothing of the fine Duroc Jersey hogs, also here. The Hereford herd consists of all ages and sexes, the three old males tipping the scale beam at near the two-thousand pound notch. There are many other interesting things at this historic Slace, but we are of the opinion that r. Coffman did not have Mr. Turley and hie excellent wife bested when it comes to entertaining. In conclusion, our thanks are ex tended to Mr. C. A. Boyd of Avon, and the Coffman Mercantile Co, the Bank of Coffman, Mr. Bauer, the pop ular smith, for the liberal patronage given The Farmington Times Pub lishing Co., through The Times' rep resentative, and last but not least, to "Be it resolved, that in this hour of national peril we believe it to be the duty of every citizen and csuoeially every officer of our national govern ment to stand by the President, the constitution and the flag and we there fore urge the Congress of the United States and particularly the Missouri delegation in Congress to uphold and support the hands of the President in this momentous hour, and to grant to him whatever power and freedom he may ask tor the defense of our com mon country and the rights of Ameri can citizens throughout the world and tor the maintenance of the honor and dignity of the United States of Amer ica. Be it resolved, that the chief clerk of this House is herebv instructed to transmit a certified copy hereof to the President of the United States and to the presiding officer of each house ot our national Congress."

Since the submarine became an ac cepted weapon of warfare proposals jui equipping large vessels with min or craft which could be dropped into the sea and chase the submarines have been suggested by inventors and en thusiasts, but none of these sugges tions have ever been carried out or even seriously planned by the Navy Department. The type of submarine chaser al luded to by Senator Stone is in the same category as the one-man subma rines which have been proposed by Henry Ford and other nersnns at least as far as the United States Na vy is concerned.

It should be the slogan of every rural consumer never to send away for goods that be can Just as well buy at borne. Every time you send a dol lar to a mall order bouse that dollar, as far as you and your community are concerned. Is practically out of circu lation.

Good on Unsecured Promises. When you have nothing to give in exchange, to whom do you go for ac commodation? until some uncertain time when you can pay? Do you not always find your home merchant ready and willing to let bis goods go on promises, not guaranteed notes, but verbal promises, trusting to your honesty and good luck In meeting the obligation later? How many farms have been paid for by your merchants advancing both the goods necessary to keep life in the body and cash to meet that dreaded Interest on the mortgage? Under the same conditions would the farmer trust tbe merchant for mouths and months with tbe produce of bis farm, or would he ask for cash or its equivalent upon delivery of tbe goods? Nat a Robber or Cheat. We know that the average consumer does not feel that his Iocs I merchant is a robber or a cheat: but. like all hu mankind, tbe catalogues and prices of mall order bouses appeal to him, and be forwards bis order and cash with out considering the injustice he Is do ing himself, bis merchant and his home town.
