The Soldier Boys Picnic at Hillsboro Sept. 1st was discussed with enthusiasm by several veterans of the recent war. Several have promised to write to Hillsboro seeking details and next week or before, several will be is the harness boosting the enterprise.


Sacks coming to Barnhart are (chock full) of Records. There’s a reason.


 A dancing pavilion 75 x 100 feet is another feature of achievement by local enthusiasts in the endeavor to keep the boys and girls at home. This feature along with a grove where picnics and public meetings may be held will do much toward locating the Farm Agent Bureau here.


Horton HOYT of near Glen Park has been ill the past week, but despite this fact that each Friday Uncle Sam’s mail local community with free plans and specifications for the local dancing pavilion.


Ben WINKING of Lone Star Heights smilingly visited Barnhart Saturday. We assume the smile to be a 45 to 55 bushel per acre one, since wheat has been threshed and 20 acres yield 960 bushels.


 The ladies Auxiliary to the Republican Club will shortly announce a meeting to which all ladies of voting age will be invited. One stumbling block in including some ladies to vote, will no doubt be, the fact of telling their ages. No objections will be in line, if their ages for the next 10 or 15 years is 21.


A “dry” cabaret has been the theme of much speculation the past few evenings, by devotees of string band music. “Shorty” MEYER of Glen Park and John STEEL of Strawberry Ridge are no mean musicians of ability.


 A truck load of promising Brummels and damsels of Festus were visitors Saturday eve. The truck bore the name of our previous presiding judge, perhaps on an inspection tour of those (good!) roads the bond issue never built.


 Dan LONGEHENNING, a favorite son of the Glaize Creek section came breathlessly panting into the local tonsorial parlor, hatless, coatless in a wild endeavor to get a “haircut on the face.” We later learned the excitement was caused by the fact that his sprained ankle is again OK for dancing and Antonia’s dance Saturday eve was his goal, ‘tis said a fair one from Maxville also attended.


 We have been non-plussed for some days as to the owner of a Ford truck painted black, said to be the fastest one operating between Maxville and a certain point on Mississippi Ave., in St. Louis. We finally agreed its owner is Joe ZENTNER of Maxville. Mention is made of wedding bells being polished.


 J. H. HOGAN Tie and Lumber Co., announces a hard wood lumber yard has been established at Barnhart. Indications point to a revival of building operations by farmers generally.


The assistant lady correspondent covered the weekly meeting of the Ladies Domestic Art Society Thursday and among other things reports the individual address made also the plans for the canning and preserving season. Space does not permit reporting the many and beautiful gowns worn by those attending.


 Francis BARNHART (a veteran of over there) is enthusiastic over the proposed Soldier Boys picnic at Hillsboro Sept. 1st. With such as Francis heart and soul for it we know it’s an established goal.


 Mr. DOBLER has arrived to spend several weeks with the DOBLER family on Barnhart Heights. Another “close to nature enthusiast.”


 Bachelors Hollow was well represented Saturday eve by the following 100 percent of its population, Messrs.’, Theo, Fred and Wm. WEBER; Bert and Wm. EMERSON and Florence KOCH. We might also christen the “Hollow” as Watchful Waiting Hollow or Bachelors and Democrats Hollow exclusively.


 Mildred MOSS is breaking into the farmerette column. We observe the daily occurrences indicating an early return to the time honored custom.


 “Shorty” DOMBACH asserts that he too is entitled to mention, by reason of his latest achievement in mastering the jazzing jingle step, recently introduced by that King of Dangers, Earl MURPHY.


Moss HOLLOW is not to be held in contempt, by some believing it’s asleep. Our representative citizen such as Henry SCHMIDT and son, Adolph HEMME and others are enthusiasts of the A-1 order.


Roscoe YOUNG has entered the lime light, taking from Willard BECKER the title of the most popular BRUMMEL. The nifty Ford does accomplish wonders.


 Edw. ST JOHN of Sulphur does believe a certain --- place the ideal spot at which to take luncheon. As Ed explains it there’s “chicken to eat” and “chicken to gaze upon.”


We observe Jake GROTECKE has ceased gardening operations to take up a more remunerative pastime of newspaper vending in St. Louis. No tears were shed and no brass band was on hand to “music” him on his way.


 Glen Park is fast coming to the front according to its progressive citizens. Aunt Molly FUSSEE holds the record as a champion berry picker and third place as a chicken raiser.


Wm. SCHMIDT Jr., of the famous Glaize Creek wheat section can be well termed a “farmer of the new school,” by reason of many new labor and time saving devices installed on his farm.

The meeting Saturday eve of the Farmers Union was one of chaos, adjourning at 12:30 a.m. with a little accomplished at adjournment as at the beginning of the meeting. It proved a tiresome burden to those present, endeavoring to untangle the (one man) rule caused by one member, perhaps two, who endeavor to play the role of judge, jury and prosecuting attorney.


Farmers are commencing to take advantage of marketing their wheat by motor truck, also stock. In this manner the seller any accompany the truck to and from marketing place eliminating freight delays and spending only a minimum time in accomplishing sales.


We had with us the past week, a representative of the large dairy feed distributor arranging to finance the distributing of dairy foods on a live and let live basis. ‘Tis said local profiteering is the main cause of installation.


 We are soon to have established a dry goods store to be operated by a lady for ladies. Notions and kindred articles men never dreamed of handling will be installed.


 Mrs. George W. GASCHE had sufficiently recovered last Saturday to attend the Sunday School picnic. She was assisted to an automobile by her two stalwart sons and wisely viewed the picnic from her seat in the machine.




 After a lingering illness, Mrs. Wm. SWALBERT died and was buried at the Catholic Cemetery Monday morning at 10 o’clock. It was a large funeral, as she had many relatives and friends. We extend our utmost sympathy to the bereaved family.


Miss Kate and Louisa ZENTNER were on a visit to see their brother “Uncle Joe” alias “the Mayor.”


 Quite a number of friends visited SIEDLERS Sunday. It was almost a family reunion. As usual all had a glorious time. We don’t know if they got the argument about the “Potato lettuce,” fixed up, but we hope so.


Dr. SEIVING’S residence is almost as good as new again and we also see his new neighbor Louis J. ROESCH making preparations to beautify his home and when they all get thru remodeling, this town will be worth coming to see.


Clarence GANGLOFF who has been away from Jefferson County for quite awhile was here to visit some of his friends. He tells us that he just recovered from the scarlet fever. Clarence has many friends and all were glad to see him.


 Mr. Jacob GANFLOFF Sr., is on the sick list, as we have seen him at Dr. SEIVING’S the other evening.


Rev. C. H. SCHLEFERS pastor of the Catholic Church, will celebrate his silver jubilee next Sunday. He is priest twenty-five years. We wish him all the good luck in the world and hope he will live long enough to celebrate his golden jubilee. It is now twenty-five years that the URSLINE Sisters have had charge of the Catholic School, so it will be a double jubilee.


 The “Columbia Six” was seen going thru this town Sunday. It sure is a classy boat, saying nothing about the nifty young man that owns it.


 Three of our most popular young ladies decided that they would take advantage of Wm. FREDERTIZI’S swimming pool and were enjoying themselves immensely when to their horror they discovered a “Peeping Tom.”


We’re not going to say a word about the ball game this week. Our motto still stands good. “Let every dog wag his own tale.”


 Dear friends, don’t forget we want to meet you all at BOEMLER’s next Saturday night, July 26, 1919.

Miss Leona ECKLE, who has been taking a stenographic course at Brown’s Business College in St. Louis has completed the required course, received her diploma and is home again. The young folks of course are delighted as Miss ECKLE is bright, vivacious and is a delightful addition to the Hillsboro young folks society.





 Edward J. STENGLEIN was in town Tuesday with a new Chevrolet, which he had just purchased from NAES Bros. Mr. STENGLEIN says he can keep it in the road but wants to get all the information possible before turning his instructor loose.


It is said that Senator James REED and Ex-Senator Alfred J. BEVERIDGE will make speeches next Monday in St. Louis on the League of Nations. Both are able to eloquent and those who really want information on the subject would do well to hear them.


John L. BECHLER says he threshed 670 bushels of wheat machine measure and shipped it within an hour and thirty minutes from the time the last bushel came out of the machine. John only got $2.185 for his wheat while Jos. J. HOCKEN got $2.21. John thinks that having a short ear load is responsible for the difference in price.


Mrs. John VINYARD of Pevely writes that no service blanks have been presented in that school district. She says in her letter: “We had three sons in Uncle Sam’s service and will be glad to have blanks so that their records may be properly placed in Missouri’s honor roll of those who served.” Any one desiring a blank for this purpose can secure it by writing to Mrs. J. H. REPPY, Hillsboro, Mo., who has charge of the work for the Adjutant General’s office.


 John L. BECHLER and James JACO of Meramec were in town Tuesday. John has rented his farm to Mr. JACOB’S and is going to sell his stock and farm machinery, as well as seen in an advertisement elsewhere in our columns. Mr. BECHLER purchased his home in Hillsboro some time since and expect to move to town as soon as his tenant can take charge of the farm.


Mrs. Jerome POLITTE, died at her home near Blackwell last Saturday and was buried at the Mason Cemetery near Blackwell on Tuesday. Mrs. POLITTE was about 51 years of age and leaves her husband and ten children surviving her.


 Green HEARST while taking Mr. and Mrs. J. W. ECKLE out to the Syl WILLIAMS farm espied a large fat juicy groundhog. In the interest of science, Green proposed to catch Mr. Groundhog and keep him so that the matter of which really is groundhog day could be accurately determined and future argument done away with. The groundhog was not captured, although Green easily outran it. The failure to catch the hog is another story. Ask Green or Mr. ECKLE if you are really curious about it.



No community is immune from tornadoes. Protect your farm property and livestock by a good tornado and windstorm policy, don’t wait until too late. You might be next. Write or phone for rates to JAMES N. HALL, Agent

Quite a number of correspondents were crowded out this week on account of lack of space. Sorry boys and girls it can’t be helped.


 Peeping Tom got here too late for this week’s issue. We note of late that some of the correspondence sent in has somewhat of a personal tinge that does not appeal to the editor. We want good live stuff, but the Record the integrity of good citizens, so if we cut out items you know why.

It now appears that the final decision as to the Shantung province in China was left to President WILSON. Three of our envoys protected against turning it over to Japan but Woodrow was “It,” and Japan got Shantung with its 36,000,000 people and now what are you going to do about it. Woodrow says so, therefore it must be so. You must sign as she is writ because Woodrow says so and no one else knows what is right.

 The friends of Mrs. Henrietta PARKINSON gave her a pleasant surprise last Saturday the occasion being the anniversary of her birth. Mrs. PARKINSON was of course delighted and the evening was pleasantly passed. Dainty refreshments were served.


W. J. WHITE of Kimmswick was a Hillsboro visitor Monday.

 ~Hillsboro Items.~


Theo HURTGEN and family spent Saturday and Sunday in St. Louis.


 Jos. J. HOEKEN didn’t lose any time getting his wheat crop to market. He threshed 947 bushels machine measure and finished at 4:10 in the afternoon and at 6:20 the same afternoon it was in the car at Victoria and duly sealed in by the agent. This is the best record so far.


Mrs. R. A. MARSDEN has been suffering from a threatened attack of appendicitis but is improved. Miss Jeannette ZISKI of Horine has been with her for some days and is enjoying herself among her Hillsboro friends.


Some “good Samaritan,” gave Edgar MARSDEN’S dog a feed with broken glass mixed therein. The poor dog suffered untold agony and had to be killed to end its misery. This no doubt will be welcome news to the person who administered the glass. The good old fashioned hell of the bible is altogether too kindly a place for this sort of Christian character. Even a dog is entitled to a humane sort of death, where death is deserved or it is necessary.


Wheat crops in and about Hillsboro are averaging from 12 to 15 bushels per acre, so far as reported and crops are being marketed in many cases direct from machine.


 Joachim Lodge No. 164 A. F. & A. M. held a special communication Saturday night. J. W. BITTICK of Morse Mill received the degree of M. M. and James WILSON of the same place, received the E. A. degree.


F. J. ADAMS was in town last week. Joe invited the editor to visit him in the city and assured us that a real hat was coming to us and we could get it any time we called. Our judgment on the amount of Spencer’s plurality was better than Joe’s.


 Mill Ollie STONE is home again and will spend the heated term in Hillsboro where balmy breezes blow at night and where the mosquito cometh not to pester or to arouse the sleeper. Few Hillsboro folks realize how much they are blest in this respect, until they stay somewhere else a few nights.


 Miss Katie MILLER, spent last week with the home folks. Sunday she accompanied Judge MILLER and other members of the family to High Ridge for a brief visit to friends there, returning to the city from High Ridge.

[Ad] Delicate Mechanism. Despite its scope Swift and Company is a business of infinite details, requiring infinite attention. Experienced men must know livestock buying with a knowledge of weight, price, the amount and quality of meat the live animals will yield. Each manufacturing operation must be done with expert skill and scientific precision. A highly perishable product must be handled with speed and care to avoid loss. Chemists, engineers, accountants and other specialists are required to take care of our intricate problems. Alert wisdom and judgment must be used in getting stocks of goods into the open channels of demand through our four hundred branch houses. Branch houses organizations must show activity and energy to sell at the market in the face of acute competition from other large packers, and hundreds of small ones. All these requirements of intelligence, loyalty, devotion to the task, are met in the personnel of Swift & Company. Yet the profit is only a fraction of a cent per pound with costs at minimum. How can the workings of this delicate human mechanism be improved upon? Do you believe that Government direction would add to our efficiency or improve the service rendered the producer and consumer?

[Ad] For Tractor Lubrication. Heavy Polarine Oil Stanolind Tractor Oil Extra Heavy Polarine Oil. Stanolind Tractor Oil has been found, through severe and thorough tests, to be the best lubricant for more than one-half of the tractors made. This oil is one of great durability. It stands the high temperature developed in a tractor engine without change in body. It has the correct body to thoroughly lubricate the remotest frictional surfaces, eliminating scored cylinders and undue wear. Where mechanical conditions or design make it desirable to sue a slightly heavier, or slightly lighter, oil than Stanolind Tractor Oil, Extra Heavy Polarine Oil or Heavy Polarine Oil is recommended. Any Standard Oil representative well be glad to show you the chart of Tractor lubrication, prepared by our Engineering Staff. It indicates specifically which of these three oils the Standard Oil Engineers have found will give the best results in your particular tractor. We have just published a 100-page book “Tractors and Tractor Lubrication,: prepared by our engineering staff, which you will find a valuable reference book and we believe it will save you many days of tractor idleness with the resultant money loss.

[Ad] Peoples Bank of DeSoto. G. A. AUERSWALD, Ernest S. COXWELL, R. B. JONES, Henry LEPP, Geo. MAHN, D. L. ROUGGLY, J. F. WALTHER are the directors of the People’s Bank of DeSoto. The strength of a financial institution depends primarily upon the character of men chosen by the stockholders to direct its affairs. Next in importance in estimating strength is the amount of the institution’s capital, surplus and profit, every dollar of which is for the protection of its clients. In the case of the People’s bank of DeSoto, this amounts to the large sum of One Hundred Thousand Dollars. The combination of the above board of directors and of over One Hundred thousand Dollars capital, surplus and profits, enables this company to maintain a reputation for solidity and for careful conservative management which it has enjoyed ever since its organization in 1885.
