~ Children Want Homes ~
There is a seven year old, brown eyed, energetic youngster who is most anxious for a home. He is bubbling over with pep and ought to be in a home where there is plenty of yard, so that he may romp to his heart’s content and be good and glad to sleep when night comes.
Then there is an eight year old boy who is the quiet peaceable type, who just wants a home where he will be loved and in return he will adore some kind foster parents.
That isn’t all, because there is also a thirteen year old Irish lad who has a smile that is contagious. He looks Irish and is proud of it. He doesn’t want to be petted and “fussed over: but he likes to have people “notice him” and “pleasant”. Some family with a grown son who has made good, will be the place for this lad. He is anxious to be as “good as the other fellow.”
Oh, yes, there are some girls too, and there are groups such as a brother and sister, two brothers, three little sisters, and sometimes even tiny babies.
If you have raised a family and now that they are all grown wish there was a youngster in the house again, quit wishing. Or if you are thinking of a child whom you had but a short time and then lost, don’t you think it would be good for both you and some homeless child to meet. Or perhaps even there have never been children in your home. What an opportunity to make some unfortunate child happy.
The Board of Children’s Guardians 37 Municipal Courts Building St. Louis, Mo., will be very glad to meet you. If you will write to us one of the Board’s visitors will call on you at your home. In some cases the Board will pay a sum sufficient to offset the expenses wants real homes for these children where they will be treated with love and affection and as members of the family.

The third annual exhibit of the work of the rural, schools closed Saturday afternoon, after a three day session. The weather being perfect, and the roads in remarkably fine condition, a fine attendance viewed the display running up into nearly a thousand each day. The displays, of writing, examination papers, sewing, carpentry, useful fancy articles in wood and in textiles, was most excellent. There were numerous handmade garments, tatting, crocheting, drawing, painting, baking (biscuits and cake), besides collections of native woods, grains, seeds, etc., and as a whole is pronounced superior to the exhibits of former years. There is genuine improvement in beauty and usefulness.
The programs each evening and afternoon in the court house were greeted with packed audiences, of visitors and town people. Supt. R. B. WILSON and wife are to be commended for this splendid exhibit in all its phases, for it is invaluable to bring the county youth and the school system as an investment before the public.

~ News Comment and Editorial ~
The word “Mendacious” that has such a prominent part in an “open letter” appearing in last week’s De Soto Republican, was copied, so we are informed from a personal letter written by Dr. AUERSWALD to R. W. McMULLIN. Bill thought it was a great word, and when he had looked up the meaning, he thought he knew how to use it. Result, it makes Dr. AUERSWALD sore, and he says its Bill’s favorite word. Well Bill got it from the Dr. and he ought not to “holler” when he gets a dose of his own medicine. We intend to look that word up some time and see what it does mean, because it sure made the Dr. mad.
Some of the DeSoto papers seem to think that a personal attack is being made on Dr. AUERSWALD. No one has attacked his personal character concerning any matter
not connected with House Bill 582. If
you were fighting a submarine it would be mighty poor time to try to find out
who sent the submarine. The first thing to do is to sink the submarine, or get
out of its way, and after that had been accomplished, it would then be well to
look to see who sent it and to hold them responsible. Just now we are looking
after Submarines No. 582 and 430, and when we get these into dry dock or sunk,
we may further investigate to ascertain just when, where and how the idea
originated and who is responsible.
The school exhibit closed Saturday gave the public a comprehensive insight on the work of our country schools. Much practical work was on exhibition and the children are being taught these days to work not only with the brain but with the hands. Educators have at least learned that the great majority of the boys and girls in the schools will in
life fulfill industrial positions, carry
on the farms and attend to the homes and rule the world. These, therefore need
practical training and if among the students there may genius, an embryo
statesman, poet or artist, if that student has [inkblot] him the seeds of a
successful career, his practical training will only aid him to reach the goal
of his desire.
It was a great exhibit and
Dr. P. F. TROBRIDGE, professor of Agricultural chemistry in the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, gives the following formula for dry-curing 1000 pounds of
pork: Fine clean salt, 40 pounds; white or brown sugar, 10
pounds; white or black pepper, 4 pounds; red pepper, 1/2 pound; mix thoroughly.
Each piece of meat should be rubbed with fine clean salt and allowed to stand
in a pile from to 24 hours so that the bloody serum can drain out.
Rub each piece of meat thoroughly with the dry curing mixture. Be especially careful that the cure reaches the muscles around the ends of the bones of the hams and shoulders. Pile the meat carefully, with the skins down, in a cool, airy place. Avoid damp musty cellars. The pile must not be more than three feet deep. Repeat the
application in 3 days. The third application may be made in 5 or 6 days after the second. In general allow the meat to cure a day and a half for each pound. After this treatment it should be thoroughly cured.
Wash the meat with warm water and remove any extra curing mixture. Wipe it dry and hang for smoking. Smoking may be done with hickory oak apple or any wood except that of the pine family. Twenty-five wedges will give a good mild smoke. The meat should be carefully wrapped or sacked to keep out skippers.

The writer has been with him on many hunts and his keen eye could locate the runs and the probable haunts of deer with unfailing certitude. Uncle Bill was the sort of man who stood by his friends and was ready at any and all times to make any sacrifice to help them. He was a Christian in every sense of the world and tried to do even and exact justice to all men.
We have enjoyed his hospitality and have camped with him in the forests, been with him on the river in the night time gigging. Have fished with him, hunted squirrels with him and always found him to be a man who never exacted or expected more from others than he was willing to give. He was a Mason, and believed in the tenets of that order and was faithful to them. He sleeps on the plains of
