BOYS OF THE OLIVE DRAB AND THE JACKIES IN BLUE.
Capt. John. A. ACKLEY of San Diego, California was at home recently on a furlough called on account of the death of his father James ACKLEY of Hematite. Capt. John is quite youthful in appearance but is very soldierly looking figure and must have made good in the service and is quite likely to be retained for some time to come and rather expects to be sent overseas before the army finally comes home.
Clyde BOHNE of the 116th Engineers and of the 35th Division is at home from overseas service. Clyde has two golden services stripes and wears the insignia showing service in the Meuse-Argonne offensive. Clyde says he heard the bullets sing and saw some of the fighting that was very real. He comes home thoroughly imbued with the idea that the Americans are the folks that the war was won in the Meuse-Argonne offensive.
~FORMER JEFFERSON CO. BOY ARRIVES HOME~
William A. BECKER, son of Hermann BECKER, born and raised near Sulphur Springs, arrived at Union Station last week after ten months overseas. He was med with a hearty welcome by his two brothers and two sisters, Otto and Guss BECKER and Mrs. Chas SACKBERGER and Mrs. Edmund LUTHER and their families. BECKER belonged to the 366 Inf., and sailed for France in June. Took part in three battles and was wounded in his left foot. His wound is almost healed and he is looking fine. He weighs 209 pounds. He was on his way to Ft Worth, Texas (Camp Bowie) to get his honorable discharge and expects to be home after May 9th with his parents and the rest of his relatives who now reside in Texas. He will manage his father’s ranch and get used to home life again and will be called the hero brother in the BECKER family.
Private Errol M. STONE, Co. M 51st Regiment 6th Division writing from Buxerolles, France under date of April 11.
We have been very busy the past week. Monday we held a maneuver to determine the championship of the First Army. A maneuver is just a game of war. Our battalion (the third) won it having previously won in the regiment division and Army props. So we now hold the highest honors that a battalion can win in the F. E. F. Then Wednesday we made a fifty mile trip to Desumes, France, for a Division Review before General PERSHING. It was a wonderful sight to see the whole division together on one field. We wore our steel helmets, and they had been painted blue in order to distinguish us from the rest of the Division. After the review the general made an address and complimented us on our part in the war. He called for the battalion with the blue hats to come close to the stand where they could hear him. We made the trip in auto trucks and camped out in the mud and rain all night and got up at 4 a.m. to get ready for inspection. General PERSHING told us that our battalion was the best in thee A. E. F.
Our advance guard left for Germany this morning and we will follow them on the 16th of April. I don’t know what town we are going to but we are to relieve the 32nd division. How long we will be up there I do not know, but I hope it will not be long.
Pierre L. CLERC of Hillsboro left here June 28th 1918 and was sent to Camp Pike Ark. From Camp Pike he was transferred to Camp Merritt, New Jersey, Aug., 18. From Camp Merritt he sailed to France Aug. 24, arriving in Liverpool England about Sept 8th. He arrived in France shortly after and before September closed, he was in the Rainbow Division and in the Meuse-Argonne fight from that time until the armistice was signed. Pierre didn’t get a cent of pay from the time he left the United States until he returned. Pierre was scratched up by shrapnel, burned with gas, but never went to the hospital on that account. H returned to the United States March 30th and got home April 26th. He is the first Hillsboro boy who saw arterial service in the battle lines to return home. Pierre is glad to be home and swears he will never leave it again.

The races were a splendid feature of the picnic.

Mr. NESSEL presented each winner with a cash prize. Mr. NESSEL did splendid work at our school this term and showed much interest in the school and our community.

Mrs. Ella WILLIAMS BITTICK died at her home in Morse Mill Friday night May 2nd at 12 p.m. Mrs. BITTICK was the wife of J. W. BITTICK, the owner of the Morse Mills and a daughter of the late W. R. WILLIAMS. Her death was sudden and was a shock to the whole community. Mrs. BITTICK at an early age was converted and became a member of the Baptist Church at Bethlehem and has remained a consistent member ever since. She was born in Dec., 1879 and was married to Mr. BITTICK when she was about 20 years of age. There were born of the marriage three children, one only living, a daughter Vernie who is five years old. She leaves besides her husband and daughter to mourn her untimely demise, two sisters and five brothers, all of whom are well known in the county. The funeral services were at the Bethlehem Church Monday, Rev. Geo. STEEL of Hillsboro conducting the funeral services. Mrs. BITTICK was a woman of kindly mind and heart and had a host of friends throughout the county and she will be sadly missed in the community and in the county. Her husband is one of Jefferson County’s patriotic business men and he and she did what they could for the Country in it hour of need. She sleeps well in the home cemetery, “under the sod and the dew, waiting the Judgment day,” and the sympathy of the county goes out to her loved and bereaved, husband, child family and friends.

Peace is not yet. No doubt it will come some day and then we may have an executive head to start the machinery of our government at work again.
Reports so far received show that Jefferson County has so far subscribed about $250,000 to the Liberty Loan. Joachim Township, as usual leads the County. The Woman’s organization has sold almost if not quite $100,000 of the amount. The war is almost over. The boys have done their work and its up to us to do ours. Everybody get busy and buy a few bonds and over we go. Yeo ho, yeo ho. All together and over before Saturday.
The Home Bureau will have an important meeting here Saturday. The Bureau has done excellent work and has had not time to show the results accomplished. The ladies in closest touch with the work favor the continuance of the bureau, and while they realize that all homes do not need its services, they feel that in those homes so favorably situated that they have nothing to learn from its work, that the men and women in these homes ought to be its strongest supporters. We are to a certain extent our brothers and sisters keepers and anything designed to promote the public welfare ought to meet with the hearty approval of all good citizens.
Geo. C. TAYLOR of Crystal City, Edmund KERRUISH, F. J. SEWALD and Mayor S. C. REVIS of Festus were Hillsboro visitors Monday. They were here to interview the County Court on the expediency of doing something to finish up the Festus and Hillsboro road. They pointed out to the Court, that the former County Court had agreed that $15,000 of the “Bond” money to which Joachim Township was entitled should be spent on this road. They also pointed out to the Court that not one penny had been spent on the road in Joachim Township, So far as the records show. They also showed the Court that prior to the bond ?? it has been well graded and in dry weather was a very fine road. That Central Township funds had been used to make the road and that it had been completed by Central Township beyond its lines. They also pointed out that there were no bridges or culverts to make and that all that was necessary to make a splendid road the entire distance was to metal the roadway already prepared for a distance of not more than three miles. We have not felt like saying anything about this road, because we felt that any urgency on our part would be constructed as selfish and from a Hillsboro viewpoint. We feel now that when men like Geo. C. TAYLOR, Ed KERRUISH, F. J. SEWALD and May REVIS of Festus, recognize the worth and merit of the road, that we ought to do what we can to secure its final completion. The Court is handicapped for funds but we feel will and ought to do all it can for this road.

~ LIBERTY LOAN DEMONSTRATION AT DE SOTO
Married by Casualty. Two Small Boys Seriously Injured by Bomb~
The Tank SHANNON was at DeSoto last Sunday. The DeSoto Band made music for the assembled thousands who came to see one of the features that enabled our boys to win the war. The tank was a formidable piece of architecture consisting of a steel front and some ugly looking guns that fronted everywhere at the same time. Bombs were provided which were fired somewhat after the order of a giant sky rocket. The bombs shot up 500 to 600 feet and were expected to explode. One of the bombs thus shot owing to a defective load fell to the earth before exploding. Two small boys WELLS and PAUL, half brothers, saw the shell fall and rushed to secure it. The WELLS boy got hold of it and had one hand blown off completely and received several severe wounds in the body and legs. The PAUL boy was also seriously injured. It was necessary to amputate the left arm at the WELLS boy on account of shattered bones and town flesh the separation being near the elbow joint. Reports were circulated that both boys were dead, but the latest account received by us indicates that both will recover.
