PAGE FIVE LOCAL MENTION A BUNDLE OF GOOD CHEER If I have altered more or less In my great task of happiness; If I nave moved among my race And shown no glorious morning face; Jf beams irom happv human eyes Have moved me not; if morning skies, Books, and my food, and summer rain Knocked on my sullen heart m vain Lord, Thy most pointed pleasure take And stab my spirit broad awake; O, Lord, if too obdurate, Choose Thou, before that spirit die, A piercing pain, a killing sin, And to my dead heart run them in!

One of the heaviest hail storms that has occurred here for several years was that of Sunday afternoon. For about half an hour hail stones pep pered the earth in great rapidity, and soon had the ground practically cov ered. An unusual thing about it wits that the hail came with torrents of rain, which continued at intervals throughout the. afternoon and night. But by far the hardest rainfall oc curred Sunday night, filling the streets to the curbs, and washing badly wher ever there was anything in the wny that could be washed. This heavy downpour opened up holes and crev ices in the street, where the surface was not water-tight, making somo repairs necessary before the annual coat of oil is put onr Seed Potatoes Early Triumphs Early Rose Early Ohio Burbanks A new car in this week direct from Minnesota and they are fine.

Klein Grocer fa THOMAS HARVEY HAILE PASSES HIS 97TH YEAR Yesterday, March 15, was the ninety-seventh anniversary of the birth day of Hon. Thomas Harvey Hailc, which was passed at the home ot his daughter, Mrs. Edward Byington, in Farmington. He is the oldest native born citizen of St. Francois county, and possesses in a most remarkable degree all of his faculties of mind, sight and hearing, and enjoys unus ual health for one of his advanced age. A fall some years ago crippled him in his hips, and for this reason he is confined to his rooms, but he takes a keen interest in current events, pol- tics, the European war and its rela tions to this country, and the affairs of his friends and neighbors. He likes to have his friends call and en joys talking with them on all topics. Mr. Haile was born near Big Kiver Mills, once the only milling point for the pioneers of this and Ste. Gene vieve counties, on March 15, 1820. His father, Thomas Haile, was a na tive of South Carolina, and came to Missouri at a very early date, before it was a State. Thomas Harvey Haile spent the years preceding his major ity on his father s farm. In 1849 he crossed the plains with a party to California, and after about a year's experience there returned home by the ocean and isthmus route. In the Carribean sea the vessel on which he embarked was wrecked on a rocky is land, and for 36 days the passengers and crew were marooned there be fore they were rescued. He again spent a year on the Pacific slope, but 18o2 returned and located perma nently in St. Francois county. He was always active and interested in whatever concerned his county, and was elected to represent it in the General Assembly of the State in 1844. He also served the county as Assessor and in other public positions. In 1855 he married Miss Annie E. Tate, who died some years ago. He has four children living: Mrs. J. F. Flowers, Mrs. Edward Byington, Wm. T. and Oscar L. Haile. Congressman W. L. Hensley and L. H. Williams returned yesterday from a visit to the Miami mineral fields, where they spent ten days look ing over their holdings. They are much elflled over what they taw, and think far more than ever of their val uable possessions there. Sheriff Adams returned Monday from Boonville, where he took Wm. Robinson, who had been sentenced to two years in the Reform School. Rob inson was first sentenced, then pa roled, but soon after having been giv- en his liberty, he went right back to his former failing of forging checks this is the cause ot his trip to the Reform School. , ult. . , E. W. Fitz. a brother of Mrs. Geo. Morris of Farminirton and son of Mr T. P. Fitz of Arcadia, who is located at Searcy, Ark., as representative of the Western Tie & Lumber Co., in some changes that have been made in the Pongburn State Bank of Arkan sas, has been made President of that institution. He will continue to rep repent the Tie and Lumber company, as well as give his attention as presi dent to the bank. Mr. Fitz is only 22 years of age, but is a successful young business man of whom his fam ily have much reason to be proud. BROWN BETHENIA Frank Brown of R. F. D.

MORI AM In memory of J. J. Edwards, who departed from this life March 17. 1916. Just one year ago today Oupr precious father passed away. Oh, how hard it was to give him up, Yet we all must drink from the bitter cup; But our Savipr thought it best To take dear papa home to rest. Where sickness, sorrow or death never come, We shall meet him one by one, In that besutiful City of God, If we the righteous path have trod; Junst across on the other shore We shall meet to part no more. By daughters, Mrs. Richards and Mrs. Benedict. "ACROSS THE BAR" At Wednesday morning, March 14, 1917, dawned in the eastern sky, the sweet, beautiful spirit of little Annie D., aged fourteen, youngest daughter of Rev. and Mrs. J. M. Bailey, passed out of the frail tenement that held her to earthly home and friends, and was borne, by unseen hands of the Love that fills God's universe, across the bar into the life elysian. The long suffering and pain to what purpose our finite intelligence finds no re sponse disappeared as the silken cord was loosed. What beatific vis ions greeted the freed soul in its up ward flight, ouly the faith which is "the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen," may give us a fleeting glimpse. Though this assurance is comforting, the pain of separation persists in piercing our hearts, sorrow lays its heavy hands upon us and we cry out in our gnet till time mercifully dispels the over shadowing cloud and lifts our hearts to renewed hope and faith in Him whose loving plea is, "Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and 1 will give you rest. ouch consolation as human sympa thy and words can impart are given without measure to the grief-stricken fnther and mother, sisters and broth er, whose lives are burdened with this sorrow. With little Annie 1)., we are assured by the Son's revelation of a Father's infinite love, all is well. And therein lies the largest meed of com fort, consolation and hope voushsafed to stricken hearis in their moments of greatest trial und keenest anguish. T. D. F.
