The editor of this paper would ,
be the last man on earth to
knowingly say a word to hurt
the feelings of any of its sub
scribers or citizens, especially
at a time when the dark winged
messenger of death has brought
sorrows to tbe home, but from
the best of motives we desire to
call our readers to tbe custom
of publishing "cards of thanks,"
It'ts a custom that has outgrown
its purpose, it it ever had one.
W.ben sickness and death comes
to y'qur home it is only natural
that your friends and neighbors
stfbuld do what they could do
ro irs&ist you. They would be
beatbens if they did not. They
know from the expression of
your face that you are thank:
ful and deeply appreciate all
they do, and it is not necessary
to rush into print and tell the
world that your neighbors were
kind when you were in trouble.
Tbe reading public are becom
ing tired of the old stereotyped
"card of thanks." You can ex
press to your friends, by a look
or word, yout thankfulness in a
more impressive manner than
you can in a column of cold
type. Times Democrat.
One branch ot study is neg
lected too much in the Missouri
public schools, declares the Ful.
ton Telegraph. It wisely says:
"It is wise to teach ourjchildren
that the soil of Missouri is as
good as they will find anywhere,
that the climate is as good as
any wanderers ever finds, that
the people of Missouri are as
good as people from any region
of the world; that the schools
and churches, the towns and
villages, tbe trees and flowers,
are better than they can be
found anywhere else."
The Rayville Enterprise was

Two of our young banties ot

a holy fright to see them strut
and crow. Cold drinks and
chewing gum were served
throughout the dav. Tbe boys
toted a bottle of milk in each
hand which signifies that tbe
boys were away from mamma."
