mum 55TH YEAR. OREGON, MISSOURI, FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 1919. NUMBER 7. CORNING POSOFFICE ROBBED. Corning Postoffice Safe Mown and Stamps and Other Valu ables Taken. On Sunday night last, June 8, the pottofficc at Corning was entered by one or more persons, the safe blown And several hundred dollars In postage atnmps and war savings certificates taken. The thieves secured entrance through the transom In the rear of the main store room of the Schooler Bros, general store, In which Is located the postofflec, A. L. Schooler being the postmaster. On entering they scat tered the contents of several sacks of lour over the floor, this being done no doubt to frustrate tha trailing by blood houndii. and also to muffle the .-sound from the dynumltc charge used in blowing the postofflec sufe, the door and bottom of which wcic blown out. The private safe of the firm, located on the second floor of the building was not touched. From tho postoffice safe every xtainp was taken together with a lib erty bond nnd nbout $250 In war sav ings certificates. The bond und war savings certificates were tho private jiropcrly of the Schoolers. Thcic was ulso sonic cash taken. No one It seems heard the explosion, nnd hence the time of the roblicry unknown. Mr. Schooler wns in rulr fnx at tho time of the robbery, ami early Monday morning the clerk, II A. Peters, came to the store to open up for business and to distribute tho night mall. On opening the door he discovered the flour all over tho floor of the Postoffice nart nnd tho store mom, und that tho back transom was open, and the reur loor was nlso loos ened, from which no doubt the thieves made the r exit. There was iuite a stoim during tho night nnd this condition mitigated In favor of the thieves, both In doing tneir woik ami also 10 get away. Wo understand there Is no clew whatever us to tho thieves. Later: loiter Information as to the robbery comes to us, The postoffice safe wus blown with nitroglycerine. The government loss will reach 3159.18 in stamps, $28.G4 In money order funds, $2.38 postoffice funds, 20 war savings stamps and 100 thrift stamps, Bird Law Upheld. First blood In the controversy be tween wild cluck hunters of several states nnd the United States govern ment was taken by tho government Wednesday, of last week, when Judge Jacob Trlcbcr of the United States District Court for Arkansas, rendered the first opinion upholding the consti tutionality of the migrator)' bird trea ty act. lho nrst federal migratory bird law was passed by congress In 1913. On May 25. 1914. Judge Tricber. ren dering a decision in the case of tho United States ncnlnst Shauvcr. do dared the law unconstitutional. Hie case was appealed by the government to the supreme court. un August lu, 1010, n migratory blnl treaty between tho United States nml Canada wus signed, lho initia tory ulnl treaty net was nassrd by congress on July 3, 1918, to put Into effect the stipulations of the treaty. vvnen ris now law wns passed tne Attorney-General of the United States withdrew tho appeal In the Shauvcr case. Thus the Supreme Court has never passed on the constitutionality of the first law. Early this spring several parties from Kansas City were Indicted bv u icucrai grand jury at St. Joseph, .no., ior aucged violation or tne mi gratory bird treaty act. When tho enso was argued before Judge Van Vulkcnhurgh u demurrer wus f led bv the defense, stating that tho treaty wus unconstitutional because it vio- lated thn sovereign rights of ndlvldii ni states. A short time later Frank W. Allittcr, attorney general of the State of Missouri, and a party of friends were Indicted on tlie same defense. Owing to the unusually heavy dock rt in the spring terms of court Judgi on Vnlkenbuig has not yet rendered u decision on the bird law in any of the cases. As there ha. been no In dicatfon of Judge Van Vnlkcnburgh opinions on this law. the nubile I general and the duck hunters in par, tlculur arc anxiously nwnlting his de, clslon, which is expected to be made this month after his return from tho Juplin term of court.

Morris, editor of the nt. Joseph (inzctte, u number or the order, und one of Missouri s most brilliant orators, who on Invitation of the onler runic and delivered one of the most Impressive addresses ever listened to by this or any other order In our county, ins memo being I r.i ternlty," nnd for fully an hour he held tno huge nnd seemingly deeply inter ested nuillence in rapturous ilellulit with his wonderful rythmeticul flow of the purest English nml fiisrinntlng rounded period. 1 he onler wns helped ins com nir. and not one Hint nvarii ni that was not helped morally nnd mentally. It wns one of those efforts that uplifts those who ale oi lunate to hour. The mcmlicrs of the two brunches of the onler assembled nt the lodgo loom ul 2 p, m., where the floral of ferings were prepared, nnd where they listened lo u piiino solo by .Mrs. lieu, I., (ic V In. N. G. of the Rebekahs, um "Ameiicu" wns sung by tho members, lifter which Act ing .Noble drand lien, I;. Gelvin turned the order over to .Marshal Itulcv. who foimed tho pro cession and it imicerded to the Pres byterian chuich, where lho exercises were held. Mrs. Albottii Green-Murnhy render ed n nlano solo, nnd Robert Montirom cry orreled the invocation, isuuie Grand Gelviu then Inlioduccd Mr, Morris. The address by Mr. Morris took the rorm ot u discussion ot tne lunun mental principles upon which the nnl ein fraternal society Is organized. Hi declared tnat tneru was mure need o such oritumzutions tislav than eve before In the history of the country liecuuso of tho Intense competition unione men nnd the disposition appar ent to look uftcr oneself und lei tho devil take the hindmost. At tho same tlmo ho believed that It was wiso for a mun to hold membership in but ono or two fraternal societies, devoting what time und eneigy could bo spared to such work to the performance of une's duty to theso societies, rather than to spread one's rapacity fur fra ternal service over such u wide terri tory that It became us thin us butter on "bouidlng house" bread. For this reason he did not believe any mun should become, in his fraternal rela tions, merely u "Jlner, " who unites Willi every society In the town nnd does the work or none. Mr. Morris discussed, nt some length, the value of personal service In our l rain mil worx, declaring tiiut the real benefits coming therefrom would more Hum repay for any ex penditure ur tunc or money we put Into it. "lho hubii in many commu nities." sold the speaker. "Is to con tribute a few dollars mutually tochur- Ity and let it go at that. Under this system tho contilbutor gets but little or no benefit himself from Ills dona tions to charity. The real rewards come firm giving ourselves as well as our dollars to tho service of tho poor und unrurtunuto about us," "Much of the difficulty urislng from our fraternal service," declared the speaker, "comes from the fact that wo aro impractic.il. vio want to uc goou and pure and helpful, but in order ti do so. wu imuirino that wo must sep arate ourselves frum the world und whllo still living in it. refubo to be come a part of It. If thu dullars wo L-ivu under this system accomplish little It Is our luuit, since wo uo not go alung witli tho dollar to tec thut it is piopeny expended, ileal iraiernai work consists us much in taking discouraged, despondent brother by tho hand und encouraging mm over tno rough sputs In life's pathway, us In paying uur dues to tho lodge, or our unnuui usscssmcni tor cuariiy pur poses." During tho courso of Ids remarks Mr Muirls lefcrred to his woik overseas, declaring that tho members of tho A E. I-', were ull members of a great fraternal society, tho Insignia of which wus the uniform of Undo Sam. He spoke very feelingly of tho private soldier, declaring that whenever ono of tho douUibova was sick all tho oth ers hail a personal Interest in him und was teudy ut tho drop ot tho hat to render any lieipiui service witmntncir power. If ono of them had a dollar it lie limped to every man In the com pany who needed It. Ho commended the private soldiers for their unselfish ness, their democracy, their morality and their loyalty to tho government they served. Ho also described sever al incidents coming under his personal observation at anny camps and Hos pitals, illustrating the splendid fra ternal feeling existing in the army, The closing thought ot tno auurcss was the Idea that the standing of the lodge in the community depends en tlrelv unon tho character ot its mem bership. "You are a good Methodist or Baptist, a good Mason or Odd Fel low," declared the speaker, "when you in first a rood man." Tha procession waa again formed and with Mr. Morris their guest ot, , honor, proceeded to the beautiful, ycc silent city of Maple Grove, where tha graves of the dead of the onler wcro strewn with the silent and fragrant tokens of lovo and remembrance. The members then returned to tho lodge room where they listened to u hilef, but touching uddress by Mr. Morris, and tho Rebekahs served light refreshments, nftcr which came an nd- uumment. Frank Morgan, representing the or- Icr, met Mr. Morris at Forest City, i llli his car and brought him to tho itv. where he wns carefully lookcit nftcr by n detail from tho lodge; and on adjournment Mr. Morgan returned im In good onler lu rorcst City, here he took the evening Burlington train No. 42 for home. The Sentinel wishes to assuro his lenr good wife that wc took the very best cure possible of him, und hope ho retuined home in as good repair im when ho left. The order was simply Icllghtpil with his coming among us. IK-slh of Charles Schatz. Charles Henry Schntz was born De cember 9, 186:1, ut Brunswick, Mo, und was the son of George F.
