Jefferson County Record


June 26, 1919






Geo. REISSING was in town Tuesday and reports that his son Louis is home again from overseas. This leaves Fred REISSING on the other side but he hopes to have him home again soon.


Emil DINSE arrived at home last week. Emil saw service “Over There” and got over in time to participate in the Meuse Argonne drive. Emil is no doubt glad to be home and his friends are delighted.


Frank HENRY and Roy HENRY who saw service in the A. E. F. were in Hillsboro yesterday after a visit to their brother, Charles, who lives near Morse Mill. Frank was with the signal troop of the 88th Division and Roy was with the Rainbow (42) Division. He was wounded on July, 1918 and has been spending his time since then in getting in shape to return to his civilian duties. Roy lives in Chicago and Frank near Potosi, Washington County.


Bernhard FRIEDMAN, of Antonia was in town Monday with his son Fred. Fred was one of the younger boys who , . .e to Hillsboro in November and then was discharged here. Mr. FRIEDMAN had with him the picture of his son, Bern S., who is in the U. S. hospital at Fort Sheridan, Ill. He was very seriously wounded on Nov., 10th 1918 at the crossing of the Meuse. Quite recently he has under gone an operation and two pieces of shrapnel removed from his body and at last accounts he was progressing favorably. Just today the 89th Infantry crossed the Meuse on the 10th after the Armistice was signed and was to become effective Nov. 11th at 11 o’clock a.m. is a . . . ng that we can hardly understand.



Will all service men, (or their relatives) please send at once to the undersigned their biographical and service records which have not yet been turned in. Several communities have not responded. The blanks for this data were distributed in your school district by a local agent, either pastor, priest, teacher, clerk of school board, or some wide awake man or woman delegated by the county collector of such blanks, and the time limit is about due. These records are not what Mr. Crow of the DeSoto republican is working on. His is a private enterprise, and a valuable history of Jefferson County boys.

The service blanks called for in this notice are required by Adj. General CLARK of Jefferson City, who is collecting data to preserve for a state history on Missouri in the World War. It is simply another piece of war work, and entails no monetary obligation to anyone and while the data could be collected from records already extant, yet a saving of clerk hire for Uncle Sam is another patriotic service. A collector in charge for such service has been appointed in each county.

Mrs. J. H. REPPY, Hillsboro, MO (for Jefferson County) (County papers, please copy).

On the evening of Saturday June 14 at Herculaneum Labor Union held an open meeting in observance of Flag Day: Rev. J. C. MONTGOMERY of the Herculaneum Methodist Church addressed the meeting in behalf of the League of Nations. His address was delivered in a calm, convincing manner, and it was evident that sentiment in the audience of two hundred persons and practically unanimous in favoring the ratification of the covenant.

The union at Herculaneum deserves credit for the meeting. It was thru their patriotism that it was held. This union has always been back of every patriotic movement, and has performed valuable service to the community and to the government.

The manager of the Fairland theatre also postponed his show that the audience might have the opportunity to hear the address.

On Monday evening, June 16, a reception was given the returned soldiers, sailors and marines at the Methodist Church in Festus. There were about three hundred persons present.

The charivari that the Maxville people gave Frank HABERBERGER was a great success. Frank showed that his heart was in the right place and everybody went home well satisfied. The instigators of the charivari are carefully saving all of the old wash boilers and tin cans for the next happy man. You know who we mean John and Mary!


Now before we forget it, will the Barnhart correspondent please enlighten the Maxville fair ones, who the real “Fair One”, is and end the misery of all the other fair ones. They all say “no more dancing” until Dan’s foot is all O.K.


“Uncle Joe” and his wife motored to St. Louis Sunday to visit relatives.

The party given at Miss Fred WEDDE’S residence Saturday eve was a decided success. The house was packed and an overflow dance was given on the lawn.


Miss Martha WUNDERLUND might well be termed the town’s photographer by reason of her love for the camera. What amuses her most is to snap a growling countenance as seen on the faces of some confirmed beyond redemption, bachelors.


Farmerettes are not alone among ladies, we now have with us dairyettes and who bring their produce to the depot personally for shipment.

Messrs RUSSELL and HENSLEY of the Sandy district were here Monday on business. Both report excellent wheat prospects and roads that need mending.


The “next to nature” enthusiasts Doblers announce their interest in a plat of land facing the river. Soon as alterations are complete, we lose them as citizens.


Our “town farmer” while cutting wheat Friday perused the Record while thus engaged; his little son helping in the operation of the binder. There is a reason what do you say Charlie!


Sea sickness is becoming quite a fad among autoists. The roads hereabouts lend that peculiar movement to autos, causing the malady. Dr. Jules BARON’S only prescription is better roads and thereby removing the contributing cause.


A dried biscuit of uncertain age is nailed to a hitching post, the culinary effort of Frank HITCHCOCK during his days of cook stove engineer. The heavy rains have failed to soften it, and sighs are heaved as F. H. passed it on his narrow escape from death, by having partaken of such culinary effort.


Our corn hoeing pose comes to the front, with the following, having in mind no doubt his experience at Chateau Thierry.


The was made us more profane,

Which gives my soul a gentle pain

In olden times we used to swear,

When sick or burdened down with care

And on the door jam broke a nose,

We’d spring some red hot parts of speech

Which made the weary welking screech

But when no wide occasion called

For language that would scorch & scald

Our speech was soothing and refined,

The output of a placid mind.

But now we cuss the whole day long

And no one seems to think it wrong

The stories in our public print,

Are full with words of lurid tints;

An e’en the pastors shock the pews,

The sort of adjectives they use.

Profanity was always coarse,

But now it’s losing all its force,

When it spring in constant flow,

It lacks the pep of long ago.

In war it may have been alright,

This damning everything in sight;

For we were racked with dread & doubt

And cuss words seemed to help us out.

But now that peace is come again

Let’s be polite and Godly men.

And quit this foolish stupid stunt

Of pushing swear words to the front.


The NESSELHAUPS are seen in the vicinity quite often having domiciled themselves at Kimmswick after the sale of their farm. Walter makes comment on the fact that “it is not always the fastest talking farmer who gets there” and we agree with him.


Ben WINKING of Lone Star Heights is suffering from the pains of the first cousin to a boil, a carbuncle. Eating his meals from a mantle is not much to his liking.


Messrs Adolph HEMME, RAEBEL and SCHMIDT and sons, of the Moss Hollow section were business visitors the past week.


Several new members to the ladies Domestic Art Club is the announcement of its secretary. Active campaigning in the Art of preserves and kindred usefulness is the slogan for this reason’s canning campaign.


A sign just above a display of hammers reads; Knockers, attention: For light knockers, this size is suitable, for medium knockers here is your size and for chronic knockers, tie this rope and weight to yourself then jump into the river, one half mile east of here (continued)





Blackberries are getting ripe and promise a full crop.


Motor trucks in increasing numbers are constantly seen on our highways.


We would be glad to publish such a record or so much of it as would be of interest.

Festus Entertains the Christians Endeavor Convention for the Sixth District on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of this week.


The persistent and incessant rain is making trouble and loss for the farmers damaging wheat considerably. The corn crop is not all planted yet and many have despaired of planting at all this season.

The woolsack is the big red bag without back or arms on which the lord chancellor sits when presiding over the deliberations of the house of lords. Its origin is curious. An act was passed in Elizabeth’s reign prohibiting the exportation of wool and to keep this source of national wealth In their lordships’ minds the kindergarten notion of making them sit on wool bag was tried. Nowadays when a new chancellor is appointed he is said to be appointed to the woolsack and to sit on the woolsack.

Do you remember the public announcements made by Director General MCADOO when the railroads were first taking over, about the elimination of the big salaries paid railroad presidents and general officials in order to increase the pay of more numerous wage earners of the lines? The expected has happened. Senator POMERENE points out that 72 men on the personal staff of the Director General of Railroads receive salaries of from $10,000 to $50,000 a year, the average pay of the 72 men being $19,418 per year. Political railroading has been a real success in the matter of providing fat jobs for needy and deserving friends of the administration.


~WILSON IN 1916~

Was President WILSON right in 1916 when he said:­

“It is not merely because of passing and transient circumstances that WASHING said we must keep from entangling alliances. It was because he saw that no country had yet set its face in the same direction which America had set her face. We cannot form alliances with those who are not going our way; in our might and majesty and in the confidence and definiteness of our purpose we need not and show not form alliances with any nation in the world.

“We are not asked to depart from these ancient landmarks of safety which we have followed to national prosperity and practice for a century and a quarter and to summersault, to radically reverse our national and international policies.

“I believe the American people want to hear from the boys who have been associated with the Europeans now seeking our permanent alliance. Personally, I want to know what they think of those Europeans, whether they want to assume any further obligations among them. Their service over there makes them more familiar with European life than we possibly could be over there.

“If as claimed by the friends of the league, it will enforce peace abroad without too great a cost at home we should all be for it.

“But instead of a ban on war many of our statesmen think the League of Nations will be a breeder of war, to which we are committed in advance not by an American Congress, but by an European and Asiatic executive counsel. Are there sufficient advantages otherwise in this League of Nations to compensate us for the probable loss of our sovereignty by membership in such a league?”



The adoption of a number of new regulations relating to hunting and fishing in this state by the recent Legislature has caused a great deal of confusion. George GASCHE, County Clerk has been the target for hundreds of questions, all concerning the changes in the law.

In the first place the State license has been reduced from $5 to $2.50. The payment of such fee entitles anyone to hunt and fish anywhere in Missouri. The new law further provides that those who do not hunt may secure a license to fish only anywhere in this state, for $1. The tax for fishing privileges is new this year.

County licenses will still be issued upon payment of $1, which entitles the owner thereof to the right to hunt and fish in the county in which the applicant resides and also all surrounding counties. No license is required of anyone fishing in his and her own county.

Women and minors are not required to have a fishing license. They may fish anywhere in the State. However, women and children must take out a license, county or State, to hunt.

Other important changes are as follows: Doves must not be killed at any time. The open season was formerly between August 15 to November 10, but the season will be closed forever unless the season will be closed forever unless the next legislature changes the present law. The season for killing wild turkey has been shortened one month. The new law extends this privilege from December 1 to 31. Fur Bearing animals may be killed between November 1 and January 31. Other game the same as last year. The new law went into effect on May 21.




(Author of “Renewal of Life”)

Someday your child will ask where he came from or where the new baby came from. In properly answering this natural question the mother has a chance to impress forever upon the young mind a clean and wholesome knowledge of one of the most important facts of nature.

Let the mother strive for two things to start the child with a beautiful and reverent feeling concerning the origin of life; to give this knowledge before the child can learn it in a harmful way outside the home.

It is well to anticipate the direct question by getting ready before the child is old enough to ask it. How to do this? Begin, perhaps with the seeds. Show the seed-pods of any plant. The seeds are the children of the plant. The plant gives them protection and feeds them with its juices. They are part of the plant. The plant is the mother of the seeds. When the seeds are ripe the pod opens and the seeds leave their mother to live their own separate lives.

Dwell upon the care the mother plant takes of her little seed-children of the beautiful flower petals she wraps about the tiny pod. Speak often and reverently of motherhood. Make the little boy as well as the little girl understand and love the mother.


~Lessons From Nature~

In the springtime show birds’ nests if possible. If not, show pictures and talk about the building and how both parents engage in it. Then show or tell about the eggs. Explain how the eggs grew inside the mother bird. They are part of her just as the seeds are a part of the plant. When the eggs are ready the bird lays them in the pretty nest and sits on them to keep them warm. The father bird sings to her and feeds her. Both birds love the baby birds and as soon as they hatch out, father bird and mother bird feed them and care for them and teach them to fly. A hen sitting on her eggs can be asked to teach the lesson. The egg grew in the hen. How wonderful it is that a little egg can change into a beautiful bird or a cunning little chicken! As the child grows older lead him to notice that the seed grows into a plant just like the parent, that the egg becomes a bird like the parent. Tell the child how important it is for children to come from good parents. Speak of parents and children when talking of plants and birds; this will cause the child unconsciously to connect the ideas gained about plants and birds with human life.  When a chance comes to show the child young kittens or puppies or rabbits, or the young of any animal tell him quite frankly whether he asks or not, that of course the young ones come from the mother, that before they were born they were a part of her. Make it all seem natural to the child.


~Teach Mother Love.~

Dwell upon the love and care the mother everywhere bestows upon her children. Include father-love wherever it is expressed in the lower animals.

When at last the great question comes, the child will probably answer it himself: “Mamma, did I come from you? “Yes, darling, you were once a part of mother. How mother loves her little son (daughter)!”

Each mother will think of a way to tell the story according to circumstances. Only remember two things. Tell the story properly before anybody gets ahead of you and poisons the child’s mind. And tell it in a way to make the child reverence and love parenthood.


~Some Velocities.~

When the temperature is 32 degrees sound travels 1,000 feet a second and one additional foot a second for each additional degree of temperature. Electricity over a wire where there is no resistance travels 192,924 miles a second.

St. Louis June 24, 1919

Jefferson Co., Record:-

Dear Sir:

The Building Trades Council of St. Louis and Kansas City representing 20,000 men engaged in hazardous occupations assisted by other organizations are circulating petitions to refer the compensation law passed by the last legislature. This law was passed over the protest of laboring men engaged in hazardous occupations and we appeal to the voters of your county through your good paper, for their help and ask that they sign the petitions when presented to them.

I will not ask for space to explain the unjust provisions of this bill but ask that the voters sign the petitions and we will explain this bill before the general election.

In the Post-Dispatch of Friday May 2nd, 1919, there appeared an editorial under the headlines, “Tricking the Workmen”. In this editorial we find this language in speaking of the bill:

“The joker which nullifies or impairs a good law has frequently bobbed up the history of lobby legislative in Missouri legislation. It is a favorite device of the unscrupulous agents of special interests and the peanut politicians who serve them. Never has there been a baser trick than this which nullifies all the hard work that has been done to accomplish a good act of progressive legislation and bitterly disappoints the wage earners of the state.

Of course the trick is foolish and futile. Its discovery is a signal for another bitter fight, the conclusion of which will be the worse for the special employers and the insurance companies, whose greasy handed agents did the work.”

I hope the voters of your country will help us save ourselves from this unfair law by signing the petitions.

Sincerely yours,

Maurice J. CASSIDY, Sec’y Building Trades Council, St. Louis, MO.

~Fjord and Farewell.~

The word “fjord” comes from the old Norse, survives in the modern words “firth” and “frith” is connected with the English “fare,” meaning to travel, and used in the word “farewell,” and meant most probably in the first instance says the author of “Norwegian Pictures,” water safe for navigation on account of its sheltered position.

Celebration of the REPPY family in honor of the venerable Samuel A. REPPY who passed his eighty second birthday May 24, took place at the home of his eldest son, John H. REPPY.

A man’s voice can be made as loud as the cannon’s roar; it can be heard two or twenty miles. The ticking of a watch can be amplified until it sounds like the breakers on an ocean cliff.

“It’s no trick at all to magnify sound 4,000,000 or 5,000,000 times or indefinitely” say Tom LABMERT, a wireless telephone engineer. “All that is needful is to connect a number of vacuum valves in multiple with a wireless receiving set and the thing is done. At the first receiving contact a voice will be normal. Cut in one vacuum valve and it is raised seven times; thereafter it squares itself seven times seven is forty-nine for the next vacuum valve, and forty-nine times forty-nine for the next and so on.

“I mean volume of sound, not power of transmission,” explains LAMBERT “In a test recently a phonograph was connected with an amplifier at midnight and we were lifting it up gradually to supply all San Francisco with song and amusement, when the police urged us the desist.

“In the stadium at Golden Gate Park the ticking of a watch was made audible all over the grandstand while an athletic meet was in progress. Capt. Robert W. A. BREWER an experimenter moved off 2,000 feet and spoke quietly to his dog and the dog couldn’t be held.

“A wireless station which I am not permitted to name recently received a telephone message from Europe, and through its amplifier startled duck hunter in the marshes eight miles away.

For practical purposes the vacuum valve has its uses as in warships where the wireless telephone speaks its message through a horn to several officers instead of using ear pieces. It can be availed of to address audiences.

Every airplane possessed by Uncle Sam and all United States warships are equipped with wireless telephone apparatus. These sets on warships are efficient at least twenty miles.



Search your homes thoroughly for all stray library books that have not been returned. The library records show a large number charged up to readers and not returned. Have them ready and they will be called for Monday evening between 4 and 5. While you are at it look for church hymn books also that you want returned.

Quite a number have taken out library books this week. Readers who want library books may procure them by calling Wednesday and Saturday evenings between 4 and 5 o’clock. Adults can get books to read at 10 cents per month. Children under 7th grade 5 cents. Better still join the Library association and have a vote at the annual meeting.


Our school is not yet contracted for though there are several applications.


Judge J. P. MILLER, wife and daughter, Christine and Albert MILLER, made a business trip to St. Louis by auto Tuesday. Judge MILLER was a chauffeur, so it can be safely stated that the trip was made without more than the usual incident to such a trip.


~Real Bonanza Kings~

The “bonanza kings’ were James S. FLOOD, A. S. O’BRIEN, John W. MACKAY and James C. FAIR, four men of Irish parentage who acquired vast fortunes from the gold and silver mines on the Pacific coast. They had various imitators and successors who shared the name, but these four men were the “only original” bonanza kings.



Seckman is one of the proudest burgs in Rock Township as it hasn’t a democrat in it, progressing wonderfully as ever, except on Friday’s since an information pump has been established. All subscribers of the Record leave their important occupation, whatsoever it may change to be and rush to the pump after the news of “Peeping Tom.” This pump is equipped with 85 handles, the most of which are owned by enthusiastic workers. Miss Hazel HEMLEIN president of the organization has the distinction of breaking the first handle; Martin BLANK, vice president and Wm. PAUL, secretary having theirs bent dangerously near the breaking point. People you have hold of the right pump, but possess the wrong numbers. One more guess is all that Peeping Tom under the existing circumstances can reasonably allow.


Nic ROESCH our busy merchant is one of the busiest men in the U. S. A. not including President WILSON – who is out of it, bringing lager and eatables to the harvesting men and supplying their demands is no easy task.


Fred ROLF was seen by “Peeping Tom” out in the grain field leaving his government mule riding the platform. Now, Fred you ought to give the mule a vacation; leave him get on the seat and operate that complicated machine while you show him how fast a Deering can travel.


Herman MOTTERT, Sr., was also working his two government mules in a binder the past week, but unlike Fred’s they went to such a terrific speed, that Herman Jr., was heard “raising cain” while gathering wheat bundles in surrounding outfields. Some step, not?


The Seckman correspondent has never broached the old maid subject for the simple reason there aren’t any, and it can be proven by the fact that in Bachelor Button Hollow, otherwise known as Prairie Hollow, there are three bachelors and three widowers. It stands to reason that were there any old maids they would eventually have had pity on the blighted hollow and shown their hearts. Hunters look snappy or we will have to recall our words.


Twin Four of the North West corner of Oakridge Ave., and Lemi Blvd., were endeavoring to gather a crowd for a dance and motor to the Swiss Hall near Benton Park in St. Louis. Through some unknown circumstances their plans were frustrated. Please accept our sympathy.


As we hear Henry HOOKEY Jr., of Dry Fork Delta has for sale: HOOKEY’S Shropshire Big Boned Capons. This flock consists of the best blood lines known to the breed. Pairs and trios no kin. Any age or any size. Rexall is at the head of the flock. He is a King Joe capon and a grandson of the 1910 World’s grand champion Spotted Giant Rexall. Write him your wants. Everything immune and satisfactory breeding guaranteed. We hope this adv. will reach HOOKEY’s admirers.


Henry FISHER has a reputation of having the most neatly curved corn rows looking like the Verdun entanglement and requiring a plow composed of four ball and socket joints to slip through the meshes. Walter ought to have been personally directed when demonstrating his ability.


Anton KOHLER was seen frantically gesticulating by signals to his draft steeds who were dragging the binder over his golden wheat field. One never hears Anton relate the gospel to his subjects.


Fred FLAMM recently returned from Arizona has appropriated the champion “dear” hunting belt of Short Bend, Ave. No doubts are entertained Fred of your being out championed as Adolph LUDWIG’S belt still holds wonderfully at Stony Point.


It is wondered why some people are interested in the jingling of change. Usually those who possess change know how to jingle it without instructions.


A deafening noise was heard issuing forth from “Honey Hollow” which shows that crops there must be immense as KASSEL and KASSEL are progressive farmers and gardeners.


Emil DIERKS who resides along the public highway is becoming quite an expert in telling whether couples passing in machines are married or not, and this is how he knows. If the chauffeur and the lady both sit in the front seat, they are not married and if the chauffeur sits himself in the front seat and the lady occupies the back seat they are married. How can you tell, by experience, Emil?


A curious scene was witnessed by passerby’s in Jake HAEFNERS hay field. Jake carried his hay home and dried it on the wash lines, the field being covered with 3 feet of water and it was entirely too wet to suit Jake’s economic ideas.


Jake PREISTER who is planting corn near Wicks got stuck in the slough near there, trying to measure the sand and while trying his level best to get out, pulled out trees 10 feet in diameter by hitching his wagon to them. It takes Jake’s spry team to show them a stunt.


Martin REITER is seen walking around looking very forlorn and it seems as if he is looking for a lost article. Maybe it is his crop of hair the fire has ruined. Don’t worry Martin you aren’t the only one.


Fred WALTER’S mechanic was busy repairing Nic ROESCH’S cistern while Emil was busy with his father’s touring car hauling water with 43 milk cans that in 3 hours and 32 seconds he had the cisterns filled so full that a stream of water 4 feet deep and 9 feet wide was gushing forth which provided ruination to his mother’s beautiful garden. We always knew that you were a hustler, Emil.  Peeping Tom.





The Only U. S. Government Securities You Can Now Buy First Hand Are War Savings Stamps.

The fastest growing society in the United States today is one that is gaining members daftly in every state in the Union, and one in which the will of the country is to be served as is the individual members of each subordinate branch.

Fellowship in the society is confined to no one class. Its millions of ever increasing members are taken from all walks of life. No one can be a member and keep the pledge he takes without receiving lasting benefits and aiding the United States of America to maintain the proud place it has attained –the peer of any nation that has ever existed.

When the Treasury Department of the United States began attempting to solve the financial problems that beset the country as it was entering the world war, the United States was a debtor nation. It owed vast sums to Europe. Those at the head of the administration did not want to impose a burdensome direct taxation on the people, and the Liberty Loan and the War Savings Stamp plans were conceived.

How successful they have been in history. The nation has emerged from the stigma of being a debtor nation and now is the greatest creditor nation on earth. There is more money in the banks today, despite the more than $20,000,000,000 that has been raised by popular loans and used to win the war, than there was before the war began.

But the Liberty Loans have ceased. Now those at the head of the nation’s finances are seeking to clinch the lessons learned, and are urging the permanent establishment of War Savings Societies. Not that the country has the same urgent need for funds that it did while the war was in progress, though the need is still urgent enough but mainly because it has been found that the people have responded so generously to the calls for aid and have learned for themselves lessons of thrift that could be learned in no other way.

It is a service the Treasury Department is now doing for the people in accepting their savings in small amounts, and giving the small investor the safest place in the world in which to keep that which he has earned. The purchaser of a single $5 War Savings Stamp has just the same security for his money as has the holder of a $10.00 Liberty Bond – the entire resources of the entire United States. Can you beat it?
