Hinchey, field representative of the Southeast Missouri State Teachers' College, I visited the Oak Hill com munity last Monday evening, where a meeting of the patrons of this school district was held at the school build ing. Mr. Hinchey and I explained to the people the proposition of the Teachers' College which if adopted by the district would result in the Oak Hill school being made the model demonstration rural school of St. Francois county. The proposition in brief of the Teachers' College is as follows: 1. The College offers to spend dol lar for dollar with the district in im proving the school property and in adding to the school equipment, the amount .contributed by the College not to exceed a minimum of perhaps $200, the exact amount to be agreed upon by the Board of Directors and the College. 2. The College offers to send its ru ral expert and supervisor to the dem onstration school once each month for the purpose of advising with the teacher and supervising the lnstruc tion. 3. The College makes available to the school district the free use of its traveling library. In my opinion the most attractive feature by far of the plan of the Col lege is the otter to personally super vise the work of instruction. After the proposition had been thoroughly explained by Mr. Hinchey and by my self it was unanimously adopted by the district. The next order or busi ness was the organization of the Oak Hill Community Club which was done by the election of Maurice Highley, president, Mrs. E. J. Harrington, vice president, and Mrs. Frank Dunn, secretary-treasurer. President iiign lev tbereunon anrjointed a rjroeram committee of which Charles Hopkins is chairman. The program committee will meet this afternoon for the pur pose of preparing a program for the next community meeting which will be held at the school building at an early date. I shall attend the meet' ing of the program committee this af ternoon and also the first program of the new community club ror the pur pose of offering such help and assist' ance as I can. This letter will give you an idea as to what was done at the meeting last Monday evening and also as to the plan of the Teachers College and from it you may write a story of the meet ing. Of course, I could have written the story but for both local papers to publish idential reports of happenings tends to devitalize them. I believe I have incorporated all necessary de tails in this letter, and that from it you can glean a nice little news item which will be appreciated by the peo ple of the Oak Hill school district. Very truly yours, J. Clyde Akers. SIX DRILLS TO BORE MINE LA MOTTE LAND CUPPLES CORD TIRE, 30 x 3 1-2. .$11.75 ALSO TUBE VULCANIZING DONE. B. A. WINES (Crowded out last week.) Wm.

Baker, I have been supplied with quite a number of Souvenir Pro grams of the Missouri Centennial held in Sedalial ast year. This publication contains more than ona hundred pages, has much histor ical information concerning our na tive state, as well as some reproduc tions of painting found in the new State Capitol Ihis souvenir will be valuable for the rural school library, the high school library, and the home. It is my purpose to distribute these among the people of St Francois county who are interested. Since I have no appropriation for paying the postage on them, however, l snail have to ask each party writing for a copy to send four cents in stamps to cover postage on same. Every St. Francois county home really ought to have a copy of this Souvenir, and I shall be glad to dis tribute them as long as my supply last. J.

Rea, DeLassus Four diamond drills have already arrived at Mine La Motte and two more are due to arrive at the property this week. These six drills, according to their owners, the St. Joseph Lead Co., will thoroughly drill out the his toric lead property and definitely de termine whether or not it contains the valuable lead deposits in which so many people have implicit faith. Mr. Adami, general manager of the St. Joseph Lead Co., is said to be lieve that there are large ore bodies as yet unknown and he promises to keep the drills boring until the whole property is thoroughly prospected. The ore being found, the St. Joe Com pany will ibuy and mine the property. The fact that Mr. Adami is conceded to be one of the most competent lead authorities in the entire lead belt, lends encouragement locally to the hope that Mine La Motte may yet be come a great lead producer. It is estimated that a million dol lars has been spent drilling Mine La Motte since the advent of the drill. The records over a long stretch of years, however, are cither lost or so poorly kept as to be almost worthless. That condition makes the work of the St. Joe people almost like going into an unprospected field. Most of the knowledge of Mine La Motte at the present time is of the very shallow de posits and no serious efforts have been made recently to mine the deeper de posits. ' While the lead mining industry seems to be more promising in Mad ison county, St. Francois county is al .so apparently starting on an era of expansion. The St. Louis Smelting & Refining Co. (the National) has started the development of the Pirn tract midway between Elvins and Loughboro. Con tracts have been let for the sinking of shaft, for the building of a switch, and for the erection of 60 to 75 hous es. . . . The National started in the Lead Belt in 1899 on the tract on which its plant is now located. Six years ago it bought the Pim tract of 600 acres, paying $250 per acre for it, and this is the first move toward new develop ment outside the parent property. This new development is the far thest removed from any other mine in the territory, being over three Pffnfers HOTEL ssAiiMT iiauia EUROPEAN PLAN Extends Courteous Hospitality and Service Room with Bath $2.50 up without $2.00 up This Building its Fourth Home has been Thoroughly Modernized MB VERBLL L.
