Louis has just come to ' light. $25,000 'wasioissiiig from the -St. Louis Post Office and so far the mystery has not been cleared. Post master Akins had a mysterious robbery In 1907 while connected with, the St. Louis sub-treasury which has never been explained. D P. Dver. Jr.. was tried for the theft but was acquitted. However Mr. Dyer lost his job and the gov ernment reimbursed Mr. Akins for the loss. (61.000) No reasonable person ever thought for a moment that Dyer was in anyway responsi ble for the theft but the prosecu tion was only to shield the real thief, who might be higher up. just like some other prosecutions which have occurred in recent years. It looks very much as if this Akins has a thief in his cam? and the sooner he gets out the better (or the government. ers deserve great credit 'lot the cool judgement, displayed-. inhanauog tl)e situ'rftion4'' Miss" Polirfd - had training foora . on- the ..-third :ilpor, hptfid MfisRsft 'to ther-firfe tws con siderabb s'lioc.Ued. ,he profuse are dying on the. reservations of in her nraise of 4ier-cln6S,.all .of the country according -'to- figures practically extinct. .

It was granted. Miss Ella Gentry though badly shocked acted with rare coolness and presence of mind uhirh nrnhahlv had much to do with preventing a general panic. During the excitement a number of school books were thrown out ot the windows and damaged by the rain which was .ailing in torrents. Postmaster Megow n attended the Missouri Postmasters Convention at St. Louis last week. Mr. Megown ivmnrts the best meeting in the history of the association. He saw the president while in St. Louis, be sides several other notables and a tumoral good time. The Missouri o Postmasters will meet in annual (-.(invention next year at Kansas City. J.J. Rogers returned Saturday i from a visit with his family at St. Paul and the lake resorts. He was accompanied here by .Mrs. Anna B. Paul, of St. Paul, who is a sister of Mrs. E. A.

F are earn estly requested to be present at the regular meeting Thursday evening Work m the initiatory de gree, . Joe Ryan has resigned hi3 posi tion in the freight department at the Burlington depot in this city. Clif Chipman takes Mr. Ryan's place. The u,nrltmpn nt the deeD well in this city who have been fishing for tools that were lost 655 feet be low the surface, concluded Monday to pull out ajid start a well at an other place a few feet east of the original hole. As soon as the heavy machinery can be moved in place j the drilling will be resumed in earn est. Mr. Wilson, the contractor has certainly met with pleny of bad luck on this job but hopes now to finish up the work in a reasonable time, at least before the cold weath er sets in. A farmer says: "If you bore a quarter-inch hole into the heart of a fruit tree, or any kind of a tree that is infected with insects, and fill the hole full of dry sulphur, pl'ig up the hole, it will cure blight make the tree strong and healthy and in no way injure it. This is a valuable boon to fruit growers, as the sulphur goes through all parts of the tree, being absorbed from the heart, and makes a good, healthy color." - Ex. ' . . which have been received at the reservation here" "A strange pan of this record is that the greatest number of deaths are occurring in the Southwest, including California, while in the states of the Central West, where Indians reside in large numbers, the decrease has been much less, and in some tribes there has been an actual increase during the past half dozen years. Why the death rate, should be hkher in the mild weather zones where an equable temperature pre vails the year round, -'and where Indians may spend most of their time out of doors than in colder climates which have a constantly varying temperature experts have been unable to determine. Los An geles Herald, Missouri, with only one-third of a crop, produced more apples this year than any other state west of the Mississippi River. There are twenty million apple trees m Mis- j souri and 'plenty of room for a bil lion or so more, These figures are almost as attractive as tne, outs prepared by the orchard laud agents of the arid Northwest. I he only difference is this; The Missouri fig ures are genuine ;inl the apples are not hand painted. They are the kind you eat. Record. Guv F.
