Hardin College has already reg
istered 150 girls for the coming
year against 78 at this time last
year. Hardin is growing. Extra
houses are going to be needed to
bouse the students.
John C. Higdon of St. Louis
seems to be the booze candidate for
the U. S. Senate against Wllfley
and Polk. Higdon says,"prohibltion
must wait." We predict Higdon
will wait awhile, too, before he
gets into the Senate.
Claude Williams of Laddonia
would shoot a Hun In the lines if
he gets a chance. An U-Boat sunk
his transport and he lost all he had
and was in cold water four hours
and narrowly escaped with his life.
Shoot, of course he would.
That dangerous undercrosslng of
the Chicago & Alton Railroad just
east of Mexico is to be eliminated
at last, thanks to some. bard work
done by the present members of
the County Court. The State and
County and the Mexico Eight Mile
Road District will aid In expense.
The Student Nurse Training
Schools, established by the Govern
ment at various places, make good
opening for girls just out of high
school. It is an opportunity to
chopse a gainful occupation and at
the same time aid In patriotic work.
Frank Welnand xalBed the big
gest crop of wheat we have heard
of In all this country round about.
His threshing was 2,700 bushels.
If he were .in Kalserlaad or any
other man who might raise a crop
like that vs wonder how much of
it he would be allowed to pocket
the cash for.
"SURE SOME HAM."

this clipped from the Liberty Trib
une, which indicates the ability of
E. B. Street, formerly of McMillan,
as a farmer:
Prof. E.B.Street, our new, super
intendent of schools, makes a good
harvest band as well as an excel
lent instructor, for after going up
to Lawson and helping his friend,
Jewell Sexton, save hjs crops, Mr
Sexton sent bJm a' fine H-lb old
bam. That'a sure soma present.
The Supreme Court has upheld
the Constitutionality of the Au
drain County Hospital Election.
There never was any doubt of the
legality of the law here, but a St..
Louis bonding firm ralHed the ques
tion, and they have been shown
we should think, to their satisfac
tion. Ben C. Elliott, the architect,
will ' complete the plans for the
building soon and the work, It is
thought, will bo started In the erec
tion of the building In early fall.
Frank Buffum, one of Pike's
many politicians, thinks Wllfley
will carry his county with a whoop;
carry Ralls, likewise.
The state or county even "the
nation that confines its criminal
evildoers within prison walls is
Itself guilty of criminal practice.
Convict labor.rightly applied, would
In tho next generation give the
United States tlje greatest system
of public highways the world has
ever known. Put convicts to work
on roads. They can expiate their
offense and be of some service to
their country. Missouri, to some ex
tent, has set the pace in road build
ing by convicts and other states
are doing the same. Hoad condi
tions thruout the country will be
Improved. The Message has advo
cated this plan for years.

OE has never before sought an office and is making
his campaign for Collector on a One Term Plat
form. He was born in Audrain and his life is an open
book before the citizens of this county. He is well
qualified and is capable of filling the position he seeks.
Mr. Voter, he will make you a good Collector.
YOUR SUPPORT WILL BE APPRECIATED
FOR SENATOR WILFLEY.
While I have not been asked, I
wish to add my testimony to the
many good things said and written
about Xenophen P. Wllfley.
It occurs to me that Audrain
will miss an opportunity of several
generations should She fall to pile
up a large majority for Mr. Wllfley.
He Is In the prime of manhood,
brilliant, capable, honest and clean,
of good parentage and not as ob
scure as some of his friends would
have him. 1 knew his father, a
stalwart, manly citizen, devoted to
his family and well beloved by all
who knew him. ' His mother, a
queenly woman, left a widow early
In life, her ambition was centered
In her boys, and, while she had four
bright manly fellows, two of the
tour at least huve made themselves
of national repute. Mrs. Wilfley's
two brothers, when the civil war
came, adopted the cause of the con
federacy and, not made of buBh-

Subject t the Act run of the Democratic Party
at the Primary Election, August 6th
As 1 1 r
whacker material went south and
fought until the war was over. One
came out a colonel and the other a
major. When peace was declared
both settled In the State of Arkan
sas, becoming eminent jurists, and
had much to do with reconstructing
the laws of that state. General
Plndall, Xenophen P. Wilfley's
grandfather, was the best type of
manhood that a country like this
could adopt for Its own. His. cous
in, Governor Plndall of Arkansas,
and - his brother, Leb., who made
himself unpopular by cleaning out
the grafters at the court of China.
This much and more could be said
as to his progenitors and relations.
Now, as to-that "letter", it is
something to harp on, many of the
best citizens of Audrain County en
tertained the same views at that
time, in fact, Mr. Wilson was elect
ed because he kept us out of war;
and the mothers of America were
happy to add their approval.
TRUST COMPANY $
It reminds(me of an incident in
General Lee's life, when the Coun
try was threatened with disruption.
Lee was for the Union and Compro
mise. The entire command of Fed
eral 'forces was tendered him, he
hesitated, awaiting the action of
bis Native State, and when Virgin
la seceded his heart went out with
the old dominion, and who dare
say Lee was ever disloyal to the
lost cause. While Xenophen Wll
fley was for peace with honor, as
was two-thirds of America at the
time, when we broke with Germany,
his heart and soul was with Mr.
Wilson to win the war.
I count it a great privilege to
lend my support -to a man with
such qualities ffnd especially to one
born and reared In our county.
Why look for something better
when we have the best at our door.
