Mr. Crane had been inspecting the company's extensive interests in the Lead Belt for several days, and there appears to be no doubt but that the report he will carryback with him will be most favorable, as that com pany's property in this county is in most competent hands.

Great Crowd to Bid :t:: 143 MejOff for CarUonment Perhaps two thousand visitors were in farmimrton Tuesday, beina . rtiw, tives and friends of the 143 men who, entrained at DeLassus that afternoon to go into training at Camp Dodge, Iowa. People were here from all part of St Francois, as well as adjacent counties, to bid the boys good-bye and to Wish them God-speed., The departure of large contingents from here has come to be considered as a matter of course, in which senti ment is usually kept well in the back ground. While the heart may be heavy with sorrow when saying the final good-bye before separating, the eye is usually bright and the face is smiling, in remembrance of tha ad monition to send the boys "away, with a smile." The people generally' are now in the mood to make any sacri fice that may be necessary in order to "draw and quarter?' the miserable Hun. -. Thero was no special program pre pared for the leave-taking of the boys, who are going to fight our bat tles. No such program was desired. It was an occasion of undemonstra tive and heartfelt, leavetaking of the boys who were going to fight for the rolief of tho world from a beastly and tyrannical autocracy, which can only be put down by the might of arms. The Desloge Band was on hand and added considerable enjoyment to the leavetaking by tho rendition of pa triotic airs. ' The ladies of Farmington were again on hand with a bountiful din ner for all soldier boys, which was attain spread in the halls of tho court house. This splendid feed perhaps did more than anyting else could possibly have done to prepare the bovs for their departure in good spir its, and to cause them to feel more de termined than ever to fight to the last breath, if need be, for the good friends and noighbors whom they were leav ing behind. About 2 o'clock automobiles began moving toward DeLassus, carrying a part of the great crowd there for a last embrace, word and hand-clasp, as the special that carried them away was scheduled to reach that point at 2:30. But it was a long wait there, as the special did not arrive until Ste. Genevieve Host to Drummers The annual convention of the trav eling men of Southeast Missouri was held in Ste. Genevieve last Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and was an oc casion which will be most pleasantly remembered by the hundreds of vis itors who enjoyed the whole, or a part of those pleasurable three days in that quaint and hospitable old town. -Not only was there a large attend ance of traveling men, but there were hundreds of other visitors from all the surrounding counties there cither to participate in or to enjoy the festivi ties. The splendid citizens of that hos pitable old town appear to be at their best when they have visitors in their homes. At least hundreds who were there last week were so impressed, as they were . never put more thor oughly at their ease ana made to en iov themselves more perfectly. Prac- ticaliy every homo in ste. Genevieve was thrown open to the visitors, and while it is considered to be a rather staid old town, there are many Splen did and beautiful homes there. There is no question but that the traveling men, as well as the many other visitors who attended the meet ing there last week will long remem ber, with much pleasure, their enjoy able meeting in Ste. Genevieve. OldFiddlers Contest An Old Fiddlers" Contest will be given at the Monarch Theatre, in this city, on Juno 14th -Flag Day for the benefit of the Red Cross. A prize of $10 will be awarded to the best old-time fiddler, while a second prize of $5.00 will also be given to the one ranking second in the "contest. A number of old-time "artists" are ex pected to takapart in this' contest, which will doubtless bo exceedingly interesting. ... " ' . In connection With the fiddlers'. ton test, there will also be rendered on the stage an old-fashioned quadrille, consisting of four ladies, and four gentlemen, which should add much interest and merriment to the occa sion. In connection with this, one of the fiddlers will deliver the calls in the old fashioned rhymetie style. The pld-fashioned fiddling, 'calling and dancing will be calculated to make many hearts glad, especially those of the older folks, bringing back to them vivid recollections -of youthful days. The - couple making the best showing in the quadrille will-; ce awarded $2. . ' v.:-' ' All old-tima fiddlers of this or ad joining counties are invited .t get down "their fiddle and their bow," and come and Join in this contest Whether or not you win a prize, yon will certainly enjoy .the occasion V on your own account! as well as furnish ing splendid amusement for others.

Farewell to: about 6:00, but most of those hun dreds who had stone there remained until the boys were entrained and tho special; had disappeared in the q:s tance. . , ' .." . TEMPORARY ORGANIZATION Just-before dinner was served, or ganization was perfected in the Cir cuit Court room by tha selection of Walter Elmer Bennick as captain of the contingent, which was divided in to . eighteen squads, of eight each, with a leader for each squad. The Times last week published a complete list of the 143 boys going, and do not think' It important to 'wprint tie complete roll of names. . The following were -the leaders W the "various squads: Wm. ' Homey Dempsey, Milton Guy Cunningham, Jack Kahn, Edward Harrison An tone 'flerzog, George Henry Thomp son, John Philip Head, Edward Brad ley, Clyde Harry Chandler, John Mel born. Ross McHenry. Charles Michael Parker Kelly, Cecil Ulysses Hughes, John Coffel. Marvin Roberts. Charles Frederick Ward, Jernel McMillen, Lewis Jasper Thurman and George Edward Hughes. There was but one who failed to appear, and also- failed to send any information as to his whereabouts. That was Charles K. Schnidler, who was therefore listed as a deserter. There being several more boys sum moned on this call than were needed, the following were released on de ferred call for farm work. Chesley Yeargin, William Edgar Meyers, Monta Theodore, Horn. William Amil Parker, Alfred Joseph Carrow, Ed ward Oliver Rouggly, Lawrence Mill ar Walter Richardson. Charles Alex ander Hornj Wm. Burl Ragsdahs, Geo. Ellis Straughan. The .members of the Local Board wish to extend heartfelt thanks to the ladies who so cheerfully and pa triotically served the splendid dinner to tho departing boys, but also exr tend sincere thanks to the mine own ers who permitted employees to play in tho band, for which they allowed them full time. It is such voluntary patriotism that will go a long ways toward winning the war. ' Times News Service Will Be Improved Owing to the -unprecedented number of new iscriber that are now being added to The Times' list, throughout St. Francois county in particular, The Times management will periect pians just as soon as possible to enlarge its news service at different points now not properly represented. Vnr thn Dresent. however, it re quires all extra time to get the new ....hcriWa whirh are nourine in by fho hundreds. DroDerly placed and credited on our lists. When the pres ent most successful contest ends, The Times management proposes to se cure a live and competent correspond ent in each town in the county, as we already have a large list in every town in the county. For instance, in Flat River The Times has perhaps more subscribers than it has on its Farmington list. Therefore, we pro pose to give to Times readers the best possible service. Bright Prospects S.E.Mo.Mining Co. The Southeast Missourf Mining Co., operating at Pitcher, Okla., which stock is principally owned by stock holders at Fredercktown and Farming ton, have now gotten down to "pay dirt" in shaft No. 1. In fact the first shaft is already down 30 feet in a wonderfully rich bed of lead and zinc, which in quality as well as quantity appears to be second to none in that entire district. This company has already started putting down shaft No. 2 on the same vein of mineral- ' This company expects soon to let the contract for the construction of one of the most modern mills in that entire district, O. C. Whitcner, a Fredericktown capitalist, is president of this company, which has the capital to carry on the development work as rapidly as may be desired. ' Two Editors Are Cited for Contempt I. L.

PAUL MITCHELL, Flat Rl ver 1,871,150 MISS MINA RAE WILLIAMS, Bonne Terre 1,123,730 They're coming down tho stretch! Candidates in The Times' big auto mobile prize contest have reached the turn, manuevered themselves in to position for the final go, and from no until the finish will be battling for supremacy under whip and spur. With a grand total of 2,441,970 votes to her credit, Mrs. T. B. (Bart) Welch, of this city, is back again in the lead, having exchanged places with Steph en Bedford Burks as handily as did ho usurp the coveted first place from Mrs. Welch a short time ago, thereby resuming command for first honors and attendant award, although Steph en Burks, erstwhile leader, is so close behind that a couple of 5-ycar sub scriptions (only $15) represents the difference. Just a pace behind, and so close on the heels of the first two leaders that a mere handful of subscriptions would bridge the gap between them, comes Mrs. Paul Mitchell, 6T Flat River. Mrs. Mitchell is making a thorough and systematic convass among her friends throughout the Lead Belt, and, as a result of her endeavors, you can expect to hear from this section be fore tho end hoves in sight. Watch and seet ,' Miss Mina Rae Williams, of Bonne Terra, continues to- hold fourth place in the race, and, though considerably Denind today s leaders, yet when one takes Into consideration the fact that it only takes twenty-two S-year sub scriptions ($165 in business) to make a million votes, it can readily be seen that she is not to be counted out of the race by any means. - Those higher up had better look well to their laurels, for who knows but that, as a result of a little enthusias tic effort on the part of her self and friends, a sensation might be sprung and a new leader develop from these quarters. Ahoy'Miss Williams! Actual Test Now Ahead Now for a whirlwind finish. Now for sensations and surprises. Pres ent leaders must increase their vote totals mightily if they wish to "finish in the money." As can be seen by glancing at the vote totals above, air four of the leading contenders are entirely too close to be safe, so de velopments are bound to happen. It is in you to win if you will. This is the final test! These arc the days that test your resourcefulness; here is where your courage upholds you and makes you fight, or the lack of it takes the stiffness out of your knees and leaves you trailing in the dust an "also - ran." ' Sometimes, too, your supreme courage urges you on even when you tire, but that is the gamcst fight of all ' Tis the coward who quits to misfor tune, y Tis the knave who changes each day, Tis the fool who wins half the battle, Then throws all his chances away. The time to succeed is when others Discouraged, show traces of tire; The- battle is fought on the home- 'stretch, ' -' And won twix .the flag and the - wire! i , Votes will pile up rapidly during the next eight days; that is, while the "second period" ; schedule is ' in ef fect. The liveliest, part of the com petition is now at hand, and, while 11 candidates are ou exactly the same footing, at the same time those who want to and WILL are afforded the opportunity' of the contest to forge- ahead and corral the winning votes.
