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. ..-
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
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.

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
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.

"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
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
