McCIintic. The Republic of last Sunday con tained the following regarding one 1 of Monroe City's popular ladies. ' The article was written by Mrs. ' James B. Gnatt: Among the beautiful young ma- ' tnms f the Legislature is the wife! of Senator McCIintic. She and the ', Senator are both young and hand i some They make their home dur- j ing the session at the Madison Ho-1 tel and a merry good time they ! biive. enjoying everything that comes their wuy. Yet I would not. ! lor the world, luve you think that Mrs McCIintic is frivolous or m-tkes pleasure her object in lift-.

With all this diversity of of talent, she has a hobby the United Daughters of the Confederacy. To her Confederate fathers she gives a loyalty and love which none who look into her intelligent brown eyes can qnestion. bhe is proud of their achievements and the sacrifices they made for their homes, doing bravely and valiantly the right as they saw it. For them she works, giving of her time and talents free ly, gloryiyinu in the fact that she has the opportunity of honoring their memory She believes in building monuments, high and lofty to them, in supporting homes for the aged and unfortunate among them, in educating their orphan children: in fact there is no honor too great for the men who followed Lee and Stonewall Jackson in the es timation of Mrs McCIintic She is president of the U D .

It is need less to say this is one of the most thriving of the Missouri divisions. andwben Monroe City chapter whs hostess to the state convention, Mrs. McCIintic was the leading spirit, and with her able co-workers made the occasion a brilliant sue cess. Her father and her husband's father were both soldiers of the Confederacy and their achievements in that cause appeal to her more than anything else. She is eligible to many other patriotic organize tions' but like the "old-time relig ion," the U. D.
