Ernest Leroy OGLE of Crystal City is enjoying his home once more. He has been Uncle Sam’s boy; 1918 and 1919 and traveled from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast. He was one of the contingent who left Aug. 8. He took double camp training was duly loaded upon the transport for overseas duty, where they waited twenty four hours for shipping orders, but Nov. 11 will never be forgotten, so they did not sail, but were awarded the overseas stripe. He arrived home in time for his mother’s birthday with his honorable discharge. He also tells how nicely the Red Cross treated the soldier boys on Christmas and at all times.


Ben LLOYD of St. Louis a former Hillsboro boy spent Sunday here calling on friends. Ben and his brother Bob were in battle together when Bob was shot and carried off the field by Ben who was slightly gassed. Bob remains disabled, but Ben arrived May, 14 and went to work May 19.


George HEILAND arrived from overseas duty Tuesday looking fine. He didn’t mind the war – but didn’t like the big pond.



George CRULL aged sixty-five years, died at his home at Dittmer, May 24, and was buried Tuesday May 27, 1919. Rev. S. P. GOEBEL, pastor of the High Ridge church, a lifelong friend, conducted the funeral. Mr. CRULL had spent his entire span of life on his home farm which had been the home of his father Dr. Amandus CRULL, before him.

Mr. CRULL was one of the best citizens Big River produced and stood high in his esteem of the whole country side. He was always lined up with the township’s best interests and his loss is felt by all who knew and loved this good upright, and kindly hearted man.

He leaves surviving him, his wife, seven sons and three daughters. With the mother in the Dittmer home are, Miss Lula, Edward and Elmer. Olga, Mrs. HANBEY, lives in Oklahoma; and Carrie, Mrs. Charles BUXTON lives in Cedar Hill. The others are; Lee, in Cedar Hill, Amandus, in St. Louis, Albert in Franklin County and Erastus in France.

Coonie” KREIGBAUM, aged 65, was struck across the forehead with a club by Clark MANESS, Wednesday evening, and seriously injured. KRIEGBAUM was still unconscious Friday morning and little hope is entertained for his recovery.

The trouble occurred at the KRIEGBAUM home in the south end of town, and according to witnesses, the old man was seated at the supper table when struck. MANESS was arrested by Marshall LANHAM and Deputy Sheriff KULSEY and is being held pending the outcome of KRIEGBAUM’s injuries. (DeSoto Press)

MILLER and ex-corporal Gus RAUSENDORK, both of whom had seen service in France were present and added considerably to the enjoyment of the evening.

A delicious supper was served, games were played and everybody wore a smile.

Ex-corporal WERNER had been in the Aviation Corps, stationed in London England for about nine months.

The guests over Sunday were: Judge J. P. MILLER and family; Mr. and Mrs. John WERNER; Mr. & Mrs. EDWIN MILLER, Mr. and Mrs. David McKEE and son Howard; Mr. Louis SCHULTZ and family, Misses – Katheryn MILLER, Alma WERNER, Estella and Caroline BOEMLER, Leona MILLER; Messrs.

George left Sunday eve for his old position in the post office in St. Louis which was open for him. Only good wishes from his many friends go with him. George is a nephew of whom Uncle Sam may be very proud. “One present”.



We hereby call a county convention of the League to Enforce Peace to meet at Hillsboro at 10:00 a.m. on Monday June 9th, to which every man and woman in Jefferson County who is interested in doing away with all war and in the promotion of national and international peace is most urgently requested to attend. Speakers of prominence will be present and address the convention.

Was your boy in the last bloody war? If not, your neighbor’s was. Did your boy give up his life for this sacred cause? If not, your neighbor’s did. Is your boy now compelled to go thru life blind, or with one leg or one arm? If not, your neighbor’s is. Shall we endure all this death; all this suffering; all this bloodshed; all the mother heartaches, and then not do our part to see that such a condition shall never again face the world? Shall we not now, with the help and influence of these boys and these sad sorrowing parents whose boys are not here to lend their help, but whose influence from their graves in the soil of France should be to us thrice sacred and pressing, insist upon the enforcement of a covenant that will for all time prevent bloodshed sorrow and suffering thru which we have passed, and while the bloodshed may have escaped, the sorrow and suffering is still with us and will never pass during the present generation.

Every man and woman in Jefferson County, who wants to see an end to war and bloodshed, should consider it their duty as well as their great privilege to meet at this convention, hear the addresses and have the opportunity to express their views and hear the views of others. Monday, June 9th, morning and afternoon sessions.

A.S. ENNIS, Chairman,

C.J. MATHIAS, Dir. Of Speakers,

J. SUTTON, Director of Publicity.



Fred PRATT was born on the 30th day of September 1887, died at the age of 33 years 8 months and 12 days on May 12, 1919. This leaves to mourn his death a mother, four children and five brothers and a host of other relatives and friends. (poem illegible, and not transcribed).



Since the appearance of the many empty dinner pails, we herewith write the story in prose as heard from one of the sufferers a devout “Watchful Waiting” enthusiast.

“As I sit here idle, dreaming

Of the good times of G. O. P. gone,

With not a dollar in my pocket.

And the winter will be coming on.

The thing that breaks me up the most

And makes me feel so small;

Is the sight of thot empty dinner pail,

A hanging on the wall.

“I’ve carried that old dinner pail,

For fifteen years or more,

It never saw me idle or destitute before

With the public works all running

And the best of wages paid,

A prosperous gang of fellows,

Was the dinner pail brigade,

But you see we were not satisfied,

And thot we’d like a change,

So we voted Watchful Waiting,

And this, made the exchange.

From full dinner pails and good times,

And this is what they said.

”We’ll lower the cost of living,

And give you cheaper bread.”

Ye we voted Watchful Waiting,

And the change it came you bet.

And all the public works shut down,

And left us in a sweat.

So now gentle reader, we got the change alright,

And don’t you forget it,

To get work is a fright,”


John NACE of Imperial was in the vicinity recently. John has been appointed deputy constable, evidently searching for some suspicious characters Sherlock HOLMS fashion. We referred John to the railroad water tank at Sulphur where” knights of the road” are said to congregate, awaiting side door pullmans.

The renowned “Jolly Old Maids,” Club headquarters are rapidly undergoing extensive alterations. A get together ball will be a feature of the opening. It is presumed that old bachelors as well as old maids of this vicinity, if any, will be extended a cordial invitation to attend.

Aug KOEBBE and Son George were visitors recently. The elder KOEBBE seems in better health than ever before, since his recent departure from the old methods of livelihood.

Earl MURPHY, Cornelius and Arthur BRUHN of near Pevely were in Barnhart and Imperial on business recently. Earl, of Bean BRUMMEL fame, again states he captured the first prize as the most graceful dancer, at the dance near Pevely. Cornelius and Arthur are said to be pupils of Earl.

Ben WINKING of Lone Star Heights was a business visitor recently, enthusiastic about his potato crop. The new variety potato, revived for seed this spring, is already yielding its quota of good sized tubers.

A movement is on foot and petitions circulated for a rural route out of Barnhart. It is thot out new Congressman M. E. RHODES can wield a big stick over Czar BURLESON, Postmaster General big enough to impress his Highness of necessity.

Several farms have changed hands recently, the buyers from the city generally. Bad roads have proved a handicap in the sale of many farms.

A.V. BENSON of St. Louis, a prospective new-comer was here the past week looking over sites for the erection of a public garage and service station.

Edna BULIS of Sulphur and William BECKER appeared betrothed. William wears a smile as large as the full moon, as Edna accompanies him on trips.

Ben REICHMAN along with Henry HELIGTAG of the Glaize Creek district are frequent visitors. Both are prospective members of the Republican Club.

G. O. JURY motored to St. Louis Friday in his “bankers pride” machine. Nothing like gasoline to get you there and back quick is the comment.


The Ladies Domestic Art Club met Thursday with an abundance of business left over from last meeting to be transacted. Several new faces have appeared as members, indicating wide awake enthusiasm in the club officers.

Some pitiful sights are enacted daily by reason of so many empty dinner pails. We believe matters will adjoin themselves about 1920 and possibly ever afterwards.

An auto driven by an apparent joker passed thru Saturday going north with a huge sign reading thusly: We lowered the cost of living and made them jobs, signed W. W. WILSON, President U.S.A. Several forced idlers sadly remarked, the sign struck home as to jobs was not as to the high end of living.

Several ladies of this vicinity have already started a Ladies Voting League and will probably affiliate with the Republican Club for -- politics and -- for the study of political -?- one is not alone in its field of endeavor. The men are also breaking into “klatches” notably Dr. Jules HARON, who is strong for all good things including coffee. The men go the ladies one better as their “klatches” take place each noon, while the ladies meet once a week. The coffee Doc makes is strong enough to float a brick.

The Farmers Union have established a disturbing station in St. Louis in the endeavor to create a system of “From Farmer to Consumer” of all kinds of Farm products. The project is being watched with interest by all communities.

Chas BOMBACH journeyed to the county seat recently on business. Chas wore a broad smile when he announced that he at last learned the identity of Barnhart’s correspondent. Guess again. Chas.

(transcriber note: the above last few lines of Barnhart news are from the continuation found on a following news page).

(transcriber note: part of the continued news from following page has been transcribed above; additional continuation is below).



We miss you in the springtime,

When the flowers are in bloom,

When the birds sing in that perfect rhyme,

And all nature’s out of gloom.

But our hearts are sad and weary

Since you have left us here.

The time to us seems dreary,

For it’s been one long lone year.

We miss you in the summertime

When the sun’s most radiant beams

Are reflected in all nature,

The meadows and bright streams;

Tis then our hearts are yearning

For our loved one passed away,

The lesson we are learning,

Is that you’ll be gone away.

We miss you in the autumn

When the leaves fall from the trees,

When the harvest time is over

And the frost is in the breeze.

When all nature is preparing,

Preparing for the sleep,

Which, for it now is nearing,

‘Tis then we sadly week.

We miss you in the winter-time

When the cold and wint’ry blast

Takes up the place of summer-time

And holds it good and fast;

Our hearts go out to you in love

What o’er the season be;

This love will reach to Heaven above,

Even through eternity.

While we miss you every day,

Every hour, all the time;

At times we feel you’re not away,

Such feelings so sublime.

Your angel thoughts do come to us,

We feel those thoughts of love

Descending to our lovely home

From the realm of God above.

 We miss you, yes, we miss you

Much more than tongue can tell,

In all the hours our whole life through

Our love will with you dwell.

When here our lives are ended,

We’ll meet you once again;

Then will our souls be blended.

Forever, yes ----- Amen.

The above is in remembrance of Mrs. Rebecca HEMME EVANS, who departed this life Friday morning, May 31st, 1918.   The family.


 (All Over Jefferson, ~Continued)


 The Maxville Special made an excursion into the county seat yesterday bringing passengers who came to transact probate business. Names, they were, Mr. and Mrs. C. J. SIEDLER, John MAYE and mother, Mrs. Elizabeth MAYE; Mrs. Pauline SCHNURBUS, and Mr. and Mrs. SCHMIDT. Louie ROESCH was also one of the party and paid the Record the usual call. He remarked that it was a year to a day, May 28, since he was here to go away with sixty other boys who went away into service.

Atty, Jos. G. WILLIAMS of St. Louis was here in Circuit Court last week, and remarked he couldn’t get along without the Record; “So keep on sending it.”

Mrs. Isom WILLIAMS an old lady up in the seventies broke her arm Monday and her son Len, of St. Louis arrived on Wednesday. A year or two ago she broke the other one, she lives near Morse Mill.

May 1919 will go out as one of the wettest in many years, hardly a day passing without a shower, and many more of continuous raining during constructive days together. The slow down pour was all that prevented a flood along Big River. Dry Creek got out on the low ground. Yesterday, May 28, was the first day of sunshine since May 18th.


Mrs. F. M. McKEE died at her home in Hematite last week after failing health for many months. The internment was in Hematite though she had been a member of the Victoria Baptist Church for many years. Mrs. McKEE was born a KING and was the widow REIBOLD when Mr. McKEE married her. Her husband and a daughter Mrs. Frank BONNER in St. Louis survive her.


Mrs. Cary L. BURKHART of St. Louis and Barnhart, visited Hillsboro last Thursday in the interest of organizing a branch of the League to Enforce Peace.  Mrs. BURKHART’s appointment came before American got into the war and altho she made several (unreadable lines) – ing the war that was little interest was manifest until after the peace was effected.

Now there should be smooth sailing. Her son Francis, who in a veteran of Chateau THIERRY was with her.



Just a few lines of explanation why you haven’t heard from us regularly every week. We have been too busy attending to war work, welcoming our brave soldier boys home, and also keeping in line with the Bolsheviki.

We are glad to say that more of our soldier boys are back home again, even our friend “Rastus BECKER”, and he has had some awful experiences but it hasn’t affected his good looks any.

Our little burg is improving rapidly. We have so far, four young married couples right in the town, saying nothing about those in the vicinity of Maxville.

Louis ROESCH brought one of Henry KOHR’S places and Dr. SIEVING bought the other and they are going to improve them wonderfully, so anybody that thinks Maxville is asleep is mistaken.

We are not in the rear when it comes to accidents either. Yesterday being Sunday, and as a rule an unlucky day around here, an accident occurred on the Bender Hill. A machine upset with six grown people and one child in it. No one seemed to be seriously hurt except the baby who was almost crushed. Joe ZENTNER and son happened along just at the time of the accident, so were called upon to make a record-breaking trip to Dr. SEIVING who advised them to take the baby to the hospital.

Last Friday Mr. and Mrs. WUERTZ took a trip to their farm in Antonia. The team got frightened and ran away throwing Mrs. WUERTZ out and injuring her seriously. Her son Nubert and family were here to see her Sunday. We wish her a speedy recovery.

Eloping seems to be the favorite pastime around here. Our jolly friend Otto FREDERITZI whom one and all loved is the happiest man in this town, as after a stormy courtship he and his dearly beloved Blanche appeared on the scene Saturday evening as man and wife, to the surprise of all his relatives and friends. We wish them a long and happy life and may all their troubles be little ones. They will make their home for the present at Mr. C. J. SIEDLER’S. A few relatives surprised them Sunday afternoon and while the bride and groom entertained them in the parlor, Hazel SIEDLER and her cousin Viola WEBER of St. Louis decorated the dining room beautifully in red, white and blue, in honor of the groom who returned from the army a short time ago. To make the affair a grand success Mrs. C. J. SIEDLER served one of her famous suppers to which they all did justice in the usual way.

There will be a dance given by the Maxville Base Ball Club at Kassebaum’s grove hall Decoration Day, May 30, 1919, and they invite all their friends to help them make it a success. From the looks of things they will be the champion ball players of Jefferson County, as they have beaten every team they have played so far. Good luck to you boys, keep it up; you’re doing fine.

Saturday night will be a big night at ZENTNER’s Hall, the M. G. A. are giving their first dance and say, you Kimmswick and Seckman friends, don’t forget us, as you know you owe us a visit. Au revoire, hope to see you all Friday and Saturday night, May 30th and 31st, 1919.

Says Lloyd George to Clemenceau:

“This is the biggest joke I know,

He thot that He could run this show,

He thinks He ran it, too, by Joe!

Well, let Him think, we’ve got the dough –

His vanity was flattered so!

Ha! ha! he!he! heigh! heigh! heigh! ho! ho!”

Says Lloyd George to Clemenceau.

Says Clemenceau to Tokio:

“My laughter seems to grow and grow,

Until my tears begin to flow;

I call this treaty really beau,

The Fourteen Points have come to woe,

He doesn’t yet suspect it, though –

Ha! ha! he! he! heigh! heigh! heigh! ho! ho!”

Says Clemenceau to Tokio:

Says Tokie to Sannino:

“With satisfaction I’m aglow,

My gains stand neatly in a row,

And of them I shall ne’er let go;

We gained Our Points by laying low,

We put one over on Him, Bo’ -

Ha! ha! he! he! heigh! heigh! heigh! ho! ho!”

Says Tokio to Sonnino:

Says Sonnino to Georgio:

“The time has come for me to crow,

I’ve got Fiume now in tow,

And doubtless too, the Trentino,

So I can say Adiggio,

Which means in English, Let’s go slow!

Ha! ha! he! he! heigh! heigh! heigh! ho! ho!”

Says Sonnino to Georgio.



Combined license for hunting and fishing.

Non-resident - - - - - - - - - - - fee $10.00

State  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - fee     2.50

County - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - fee    1.00

Note: The county license permits the holder to hunt and fish in his own and adjoining counties.

The state license allows hunting and fishing anywhere in the state; and persons holding a county license may exchange name for a state license and have a credit for the $1:00 paid for the county license.

The hunting licenses now in the hands of the county clerks for the year 1919 are made by the set the combined hunting and fishing license for the year 1919 and the clerks will so consider them; new forms will be issued for the year 1920:

~Fishing License Only~

Resident state license - - - - - fee $1.00

Nonresident license - - - - - - fee  3.00

The Act provides that any alien must take out a non-resident license before he can hunt or fish in this state; no special license will be issued this year for this, but the County Clerks will upon the application of any alien issue to him the regular non-resident fishing license. Aliens must apply to State Game & Fish Commission for combined license.



Hello! Count us in. We expect to come often. Our gossip is as good as anybody’s.

We are sure having a lot of rain now days, for it is raining almost every day but we don’t care as we are all running a dairy and this is excellent weather for the pastures. As soon as we get some sunshine and drier weather we can show the people that we can get ahead of any one in planting corn.

Herman BARKE, one of our neighbor boys who departed from us last summer for military service has now returned as full of enthusiasm as the law allows him to be. He is now a made man and we sure hope that this young man will be with us for at least a half century or more, for it takes such bright and enterprising men as he to set things going, judging from the past.

Henry SWEHLA is now working for STRAHER Brothers sawmill which is at Frank BOLLEFER’S place.

Herman DANNIMANN one of our esteemed neighbors has recently purchased a young team of horses. He is now fixed better for farming than ever before.

Our ball team has put it over the Kimmswick team last Sunday and we think this shows what a splendid team Four Ridge has. But it is no wonder for the boys were seen practicing the last four months late of evening but this will bring good results from now on.

Edward NESSEL has built recently a new granary and last Saturday he gave a dance in it which provided a success.

Anton WURTZ is now in St. Louis and was down on a visit Sunday but had gone back again to keep up his work in the hat factory. As hot weather can now be expected almost any day we know that you will all need a straw hat so all you have to do in case you want one is to send him a telegram and he will insure your prompt and immediate service.

Christ KEUNE Jr., has come back to Dry Fork to stay for the summer, but this fall he intends to go back to the city again to work for the government which he did during the European war.

Frank WUERTZ is now very busy picking strawberries and has an enormous crop.

Kenneth HILLIS is now moving his furniture out here on his farm from St. Louis, and a good farmer we hope he will be, for he has good capital to begin with.

William DOLL is getting ready to run a dairy which we hope he will have greatest success with, for one thing good in a neighborhood always helps another.

Henry NANSEL our esteemed neighbor who resides near House Springs is doing some good farming now days for he has about twenty acres of corn planted already.

Christ SAEGER, one of our most efficient school teachers who has gone to France to get the best of the Huns is still over there but an early return is hoped for. We hope also to find him a better man physically then politically than before.
