Schools Are: Out. Commencements in this city for this year were ended last Thursday evening when the Holy Rosary School Commencement was held at the opera house. The program was a long one and interesting from first to last. The school has been under the supervision of good noble christian women who are thorough in their work as teachers. This makes Holy Rosary School one of ," which any community would be proud. The school Is fast becoming - one of the most prominent in Northeast Missouri. ..- Balzer. George Balzer was born in Ger- many. Aug. 24, 1842 and died in Quincy. III., May 28. '1914. aged 71 years. 9 months and 4 days. When a small boy he came to the United States with his parents and spent most of his early life in Quincy. He ; served four years in the Federal; armv during the war of the sixties. ! Hp was a brave and fearless soldier. I Most of his life was spent in and i near this city where he was dearly loved by all our people He leaves I a bereaved widow, four daughters and a large circle of friends to mourn his departure. The remaius were brought to this city on Burlington No. 3 Satur day and conveyed to St. Jude cemetery where they "were laid to rest with Ihe ritualistic ceremony of the Odd Fellows of which he was a faithful and honored mem ber. Dr. McNair made some very appropriate remarks. George Bal zer was one of God's most noble men. He was kind and considerate a friend to all mankind. When ever memorial day came you would always find George Balzer leading in the movement to decorate the graves of those who had gone be fore. A good man has gone home. Rural Carriers. There was a meeting of the Rural Carriers of Monroe, Marion, Ralls and 'Shelby Counties held in this city Saturday. The Northeast Missouri Rural Carriers Association was organized. This is an organi zation of importance not only to the carriers but to the patrons, ns the carriers will meet and discuss conditions, good and bad, and each will profit by the experience of oth ers. The carriers out of this city and so far as we know, in the four counties, are giving their patrons the best of service. But, sad to relate there are patrons who do not fully appreciate the work of the faithful carriers. There are many ways in which each of us could make life more pleasant for them Think the matter over, imagine yourself in the position of the car rier and then treat them as you would desire others to treat you. Wanted at Fredericktown. City Marshal T. B. Hayden re ceived a wire Saturday from Thom as B. Sharp, the Sheriff of Madison County, to arrest Clarence Umfleet. Umflett was placed under arrest and asked permission to go into the back room of the Baldwins plumb ing shop where he has been work ing. The permission was granted and Umfleet went through the shop, out of the door and started to run. The officers gave chase and were joined by other citizens, but Umfieet continued until near E. L. Ander son's residence where he was cap tured by Ambrose Nolen. The Sheriff arrived Sunday night and started home with his prisoner Monday rnornitig. Umfleet is want ed in Fredericktown on the charge of burning a hotel. Speed to be Limited. The speed of automobiles and motorcycles is to be limited in Pal myra to ten miles an hour. An ordinance to that effect was passed some time ago and signs have been prepared, which will be put up this week, giving due notice to owners of machines. The Cfficers should see to it that the ordinance is strict ly enforced. There is evidently too much fast ond reckless, driving iu this city. - Palmyra Spectator.

All day Saturday people could be seen going to the cemeteries with beautiful flowers to leave on the graves of departed friends Memo rial day was not formally observed but the people feel that the memo ry of those who have crossed to the other shore should be observed. Get Certificates. The twelve young people who finished the' four year course at the Monroe City public schools all re ceived state certificates which are good for two years. All the gradu-. ates are splendid young people and those who secure their services as teachers are to be congratulated. Well Received The Cowboy and the Thief which was recently put on in this city by local talent under the auspices of the Knights of Columbus was pre sented at Hunnewell Tuesday eve ning to a large, and appreciative audience. The show and the dance which followed were greatly en joyed. Sea Disaster. Not since the sinking of the Ti tanic has there been such a great loss of life as in the sinking of the Empress of Ireland, a big passenger ship from Liverpool, in the St. Law rence river early Friday morning. A Norwegian Collier rammed the big steamer and she sunk within 15 minutes carrying bown almost one thousand persons. The captain of the Empress says the collier officers are to blame for the accident Murphy. Lyona, the infant daughter of Mr and Mrs. Frank Murphy died Satur day, bhort tunerai services were held at the home in this city and rhe remains were taken to Shelbina for interment. A little flower came to bloom on earth and make brighter the lives of the fond parents, but in a 6hort time its mis sion on earth was finished and the spirit returned to the God who gave it.

A Puzzle That Puzzles Here's a puzzle that puzzles everybody: Take the number of your living brothers, double that amount, add it to 3. multiply by 5. add it to the number of your living sisters, multiply by 10, add the number of deaths of brothers and subtract 150 from the result- The right figure will be the number of deaths of brothers, the middle fig ure will be the number of living sisters and the left figure will show the number of living brothers. Try it and see. ' Who cin supply an ex planation? Ex. Very Swift Calculation. The leading negroes of a Georgia town started a bank and invited persons of their race to become customers. One day a darkey, with shoes run down at heels, a gallus over one shoulder, and a cotton shirt, showed up at the bank. "See here," he said, "I want mah ten dollars " "Who is yuh?" asked the cashier. "My name's Jim Johnson, an' I wants dat ten dollars." "You ain't got no money in his here bank," said the cashier, after lookii.'g over the books. "Ye--!. I has." insisted the visitor "I put ten dollars in here six months ntin " "Why, man. yuh shure is foolish. De intrust done et dat up long er go." Ex. "Neither Does He Spin." ; We've often wondered just what is the purpose in life of the young man who sits in the stairways and loafs in different places in the city day after day and week after week. With no visible means of support, he sits idly and watches other men perform their different duties in life while he eats the bread which his hand did not earn, and accepts the hospitality of the home which had no part in making. Are they devoid of even a s n ill spark of Ambition. Are they willing to go thru life without some effort to ceae existing as a worthless lroaj? Tliere's nath'ng so disgust ing in our estimation as a big hulk of a young man who refuse to work when he is no doubt more able to do so than those upon whom he is depending on for sup port. Every town or city is blessed (?) with a few of this class of men and some plan should be devised to awaken them to a just sense of what should be their duties and re sponsibilities iu life Milan Stand ard. . They were making up a purse the other day for a fellow who had been sick and had run against all kinds of hard luck., One of the boys spoke to Jasper Tightwad about helping. ''We ought to do some thing for him." thoughtfully said Jasper, "for it. looks as though the doctors can't help him. Let us In !il a SDecial rtraver meet in i for him." Selected. .'
