THREE Mother's Picture for Gen. Pershing LACLEDE, Mo., Sept. 11. (United Press.) "Johnny Pershing is coming home and Linn county is a beehive, Knighted and titled by European crowned heads; honored and glorified by President Wilson and congress and praised and feted by the nation, Gen er al Pershing will be welcomed back to his birthplace. The date is not definite. General Pershing responded to Mayor B. Edmund B. Allen's ca blegram, "Laclede, your old home, your boyhood friends and Linn Coun ty is calling you," replied "I have heard the call. Will be there soon after my arrival in the United States." And then Laclede went to work, preparing the home-coming. When "Johnny" comes home to Laclede it will be a simple affair. There'll be no Seasar's victorious return to Rome. "He is going to be just plain 'John ny?' and that is just what he will want to be," Mayor Allen said, giv ing the keynote of the celebration. "Lord knows he has been 'generaled' enough by this time, and 'Johnny' is going to sound powerfully good to him." So Laclede is planning; singing, shouting, handshaking and music and much oratory followed by a fried chicken dinner "on the ground" when Johnny's in town. The Pershing family will reunite after the celebration. James Persh ing, a brother or Chicago; their two sisters, Miss Mae Pershing and Mrs. Bessie Butler of Lincoln, Neb., will meet again, in the old Pershing home here. "Aunt" Susan Hewett, who baked apple pies for the general when he was a barefoot boy, will be a guest. "Aunt" Louisa Warren, who officiat ed at the birth of Pershing and first bathed and clothed him, will be another guest of honor. George F. Davis, aged resident of Quincy, 111., will be another honored guest. Davis gave Pershing's father his first job in Laclede that, of section boss. Prof. Smith of Chillicothe, Mo., the living member of the committee giv ing examinations when Pershing won his appointment o West Point, also will be a guest. Nejarly a score of boyhood chums will attend. Secretary of War Baker and gov ernors of Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, Il linois, Oklahoma and Arkansas have been invited. Gold swords from the world pow ers, crosses of war and other costly gifts of recognition will be mere gew gaws and trinkets in the life of Persh ing on home-coming day. He will re ceive a photograph and a revolver. The photograph faded and worn and fifty years old was a picture of Tershing's mother. It was found re cently in an old album belonging to J. H. Hamilton of Lacede. Jordon Parks, a negro, will make a second presentation overshadowing W1- TRADE VICTORY FRUI GREENVILLE GRAND VIEW Farmers of this neighborhood are very busy cutting tobacco.

THE CIRCUS IS COMING lu John Robinson's and Its Largest and But in This WhoU Wide World. tha Although old John Robinson, the original founder of the show bearing his name and conceded daddy of all circus kings, has long since joined the big parade in the "Great Be yond," the wonderful amusement in stitution that he created still lives and thrives and will exhibit in Johnson City on Friday, Sept. 19. An event always of extraordinary interest to big folks and little folks alike is the traditional street parade, and this the management of the big circus promises will be given in all the brilliant splendor and tinseled glory of these fascinated features that have so endeared the street dis play to the public fancy and affec tion. The big elephants (the John Rob inson show claims to have the biggest herd with any circus this season) are assured beforehand of a generous shore of the kiddies' roasted peanuts. The attractively carved wagons, the allegorical floats and golden chariots, the richly plumed and caparisoned horses and ponies, the grotesqueries of the clowns, the inspiring music of many bands, the other musical con trivances and the shrill staccato of the steam calliope, the roaring of the caged wild animals all these and more besides will be seen in the in spiring forenoon street procession. "Were you very sick with the flu Rastus?" "Sick? Sick? Man, ah was so sick mos' every night ah look in dat er casulty, list for mah name!"

In view of the fact that the pres ent valuation is a very radical change from the rediculously low figures at which they have been previously as sessed, the Board would recommend that for the present year at least the taxes be assessed at 50 of the val uations placed upon the property by the Board and the tax rate then so regulated as to bring the requisite amount of revenue. At the time of assessing the property for 1920 we should recommend another thorough examination of all properties and careful valuation of the same and the assessment then be made at its full and actual cash value with . reduced rate to correspond. It is very evident that a very small percent of the personal property of the citizens is reported. Just , how this is ever to be arrived at and each and every one assesed according to what he actually should be is a dif ficult problem to solve. We believe, however, that a printed list of all items usually found in a home should be used and each room inventoried and the property valued according to the same standard in all homes the Assessor visiting each home and satisfying himself, as to the probable value of the contents of the home and getting direct answers to ques tions relative to Jewelry, personal possessions and outstanding loans. Your Board gave due notice in the papers that they would be in session on August the 19th for hearing any complaints or corrections that might be made. Quite a number appeared but after being shown the assess ments of other property in the same neighborhood seemed to be satisfied, with a few exceptions. In the mat ter of these exceptions the Board as a body met on Monday, September I 1st, visited all the property in ques tion, comparing the valuation with surrounding property and adjusted same to the best of their ability and in a manner which we think will be satisfactory to all concerned.

Two men and a boy were killed last night in turbulent riots growing out of the po lice strike. There were numerous in juries of a minor nature to members of mobs, police officers and state guardsmen. The most serious disturbances were in the vicinity of Scollay Square and South Boston. Cavalrymen charged the crowds and a machine gun was uused, one man being killed and sev eral wounded by its fire. At a lata hour the mob was still uncontrolled. Property damage was slight com pared to that inflicted by the wild rampage Tuesday night. One of the most serious elements in the complicated outlook was the possibility of sympathetic strikes by labor unions which have declared their support of the policemen's union. Like the Patrolmen's organization, most of these unions are affiliated with the American Federation of La bor. The state branch of the feder ation, at its annual convention in Greenfield yesterday, instructed all Boston unions to vote tonight on the question of action to back up the po licemen. Scollay Square was threatened all day yesterday and well into the night. The crowd early became riotous and cavalrymen were sent to disperse it. The mob surged in and out of the square. Shots were fired and an un identified man was killed. A woman was wounded in the arm, a middle aged volunteer policeman was so badly beaten up that he was remov ed to a hospital and three cavalrymen were hit over the heads by bottles and other missies and also were given hos pital treatment. After infantry rein forcements 'arrived the square was iinally cleared. ADMINISTRATOR'S NOTICE Having qualified as administrator of the estate of Dr. W. H.

The Super Circus of the Universe When Can I Get An Essex? That is the Inquiry Men Now Make Con cerning the Light Weight, Quality Car No industry has equaled the automobile for its surprises. And judged by the wey people everywhere have taken to it, no car has equaled the Essex in the quickness with which it has gained its leadership. Some Say Advertising Did It. There is a measure of truth to that. Rut the advertising was not of the usual type. The Essex received the kind of advertising that is always effective. No product has been advertised as it has been that has not become a favorite. Its dvertising has been the voluntary praise of tens of thou sands who recognize Essex qualities. The Essex is so well advertised because it fills the want so many people have long entertained. Everything you hear about the Essex is what motorists think of it. At first only impressions such as came from a store room view and a short ride were given. But those views were all to the advantage of the Essex. Now thousands of owners know from daily service just how good a car the Essex is. So the Matter of Delivery Is All That is about the only question buyers now ask. Call and let us show you the Essex.
