Jefferson County Record


August 7, 1919



The compulsory attendance school was passed by the last Legislature provides that every child between the ages of seven and fourteen shall attend school regularly for the entire term, and between the ages of fourteen and sixteen they must attend unless actually, regularly and lawfully employed for at least six hours each day in some use. . . employment or service. As a means . . . enforcement this law provides for a County Attendance Officer being selected by the County Superintendent of Schools, placed under a bond of $1000 and being paid a salary not to exceed $4.00 per day for each day actually engaged in the discharge of his duties and his actual expenses incurred. This attendance officer is appointed for the entire County and has authority to arrest and place in school, children who are not in attendance. He may bring action against the parent or guardian in any court of competent jurisdiction. The following children are exempt: those mentally or physically incapacitated or those who have completed the common school course.

Beginning September 1st, the teachers of Jefferson County will be required to make a weekly report of those pupils who are not attending school and give reasons why they are not attending. These reports are to be filed with the County Superintendent who in turn will turn them over to the County Attendance. The attendance will then proceed to place the children in school. The law requires the clerk of the district to furnish the teacher with a copy of the enumeration list which will inform the teacher of the number of names of the children in the district. Blank reports will be printed and sent to the teachers for the purpose of notifying the Attendance Officer.

Superintendent WILSON has filed with the County Court his appointment of W. H. POWER of County Truant Officer. The Court has not acted on the matter we understand for the reason that the law has not yet gone into effect.


St. Louis – Reports reaching the Salvation Army Headquarters here this week tell of operations in the rural communities of the state of numbers of fake Salvationists who are apparently collecting money by posing as Salvationists.

Lieut-Colonel John D. SHARP, in charge of this district stated today that the Salvation Army had no agents who are authorized to collect money in Missouri and that all collections being made by men and women who are well known in their community.

“We have only two agents on the road in this state,” said Col. SHARP, “and these are campaigners who are securing local committees to do the work of collecting. All collections are being made by prominent citizens in each community and are being sent to us thru local banks, in order to protect the people of the state against imposition.”

“In the past hundreds of dollars have been taken from towns yearly by fake collectors who used our name and uniform to make their collections and we are instituting the new system to guard against this. In a majority of instances the fake collectors use all of this money for their own selves.”

“Of course there is nothing to prevent any recognized organization from making collections for a worthy purpose, but we are asking the people and the authorities to be on the watch for unscrupulous persons who are masquerading under the guise of Salvation Army officers to line their own pockets.”

Cow barn orator being scare for sometime, “now cometh a lady of the house,” oratory emitting from the lips of our smiling Freda WEDDE stating thusly:

“Don’t think of the good you could do

“If you had just a million or two;

“Rather think of the good

“You could do if you would,

“With a smile and a kind word or two.”


Several jokers of a humorous turn of mind, evidently sought to shame certain streets in the western part of St. Louis in odd manners. For instance Swan Ave. was designated by a metal outline of a swan nailed to the customary street sign post. We dislike to state how Kentucky Ave. was designated and leave that to the reader.  It is stated by a local “has been’ politician that the confirmed habit of smiling is so general among some politicians that they even appear good natured at home.  A good joke leaked itself into print thusly; a certain teacher, while teaching a class in grammar asked, “What tense am I speaking in when I say “I am beautiful?’ A small girl replied, “The past tense sir.” There is more or less curiosity in the average human and in this instance, they will turn this paper upside down in order to satisfy it.

Rossie YOUNG sighs deeply when mention is made of Dolores HATMAN’S removal to St. Louis. Rossie considers employment in St. Louis to help overcome an aching heart.

 The dance Saturday eve must have been an informal one, since Dan LONGCHENNIG was non-committal, as he was being prepared for a Brummel eve, by the tonsorial artist.

Claude AUBUCHON of Glen Park believes he could lovingly walk ten times the distance after 11 p.m. Wednesdays and Sundays, for the object of his heart, if it was necessary. “What a dear,” she remarks.

In a recent interview with a representative citizen of Glen Park, we learned of a group of three. While two make the cannon balls, the other shoots them. This is a daily occurrence at Barnhart, Sundays and one week day excepted.

Four Ridge was well represented here the past week, numerous farmers renting safe deposit vaults, a recent addition to the facilities of our local bank.

Farmers generally are becoming alarmed at that bugaboo in the reduction of the price of wheat. With a wheat crop far behind expectations, high priced seed, labor and utensils likewise, the end is not yet.

Mrs. L. G. OHLMAN spent the weekend in St. Louis.

 Alfred RAEBEL, a promising son of the Glaize Creek section turns a deaf ear to the numerous appeals for his attendance at social functions. As Albert is a bachelor, certain ladies are the cause.

We observed Fred BUCHTING of Antonia practicing the art of fisherman, near here recently. If Fred operates that fancy fishing reel as well as he drives that two ton Palmer, a tub could not possibly hold the fish caught.

Had Martha WUNDERLUND and her camera been on hand Friday morning an interesting snapshot could have been taken, prima-facia evidence of the interest manifested in our Record, scores perusing it in the shade of the post-office.

Walter RACHEL of Mosquito Lane departed for St. Louis Saturday, the mother much worried at his continued absence. We suggest a reason, since Dame RUMOR reports his betrothal to a recent fair resident, now residing in St. Louis.

War eagles have no place along the quiet trail of the giant sycamores, in the Glen Park section, notably near Papa BLAKE’S Turtle doves coo as softly as of yore, both large, a hammock of immense strength being necessary for Bill BURNS and his bride.

The bridge fills on the road leading to Glen Park completed, a long felt want has been filled. Residents rejoicing generally at the improvements.

Farmers thru-out the district complain bitterly at losses sustained, by reason of binder twine not insect treated. As one expresses his displeasure, “The twine must have been the kind manufactured by convicts, in competition with free labor.”

Several cow barn orators announce the fact that high priced dairy feeds have knocked out the scrub dairy stock.

The time honored stark paid a visit to our tonsorial artist, Mr. KRAFT’S residence Saturday eve, mother and child doing splendid.

Mesdames F. W. RAEBEL, Wm. F. MEYER and Jules BARON, members of the Domestic Art Society, were busily engaged cleaning up club headquarters Thursday. A lecture of importance to members only, will be the program at next meeting.

Several local “has been” enthusiasts of the Watchful Waiting Clan, are just lukewarm in their praises, and by the time snow flies, it will be ice cold against all previous utterances in their favor.

It has always appeared strange and mystifying to the average laymen, that the proper place to commence reducing the high cost of living is the producer. Of course the farmer is the largest producer, and not generally as wily as his city cousin, they commence on him. As one wholesaler remarked, “farmers have had their inning, now let us have ours.”

John PLACK our prominent dairyman bachelor wears a smile these warm days, indicating a keen interest in feminine affairs. It is possible a lady could be the cause?

Referendum petitions were signed eagerly by local supporters for the referendum vote to repeal the war-time prohibitions act. In several instances appendixes were affixed to care for the many signatures.

George HEARST Jr., has ceased his employment at Ten Brook, giving as the cause, “its orders from my girl,” who states it’s too far away from her.

Ed KUNZ and his wonderful dog have at last parted company. Ed gave the dog so much of his time teaching it tricks it threatened to disrupt family relations hence the wife laid stress on his neglect of her. The disappearance of the dog is the result.

The corn raising post promises some things within a week or two. Threshing wheat and helping in the harvest delayed his political endeavors.

She remained in the . . . which Mr. Adams drove under . . . while attending to business . . . and shower burst suddenly a . . . the shed down, crushing again her shoulder and several ribs, duplicating the injuries received in a sleigh . . . away, more than a year ago. . .

[Ad] Get Efficiency From Your Tractor. Keep it in service constantly. The one best way to do that is to give it all the lubricating oil it will take, providing you select the correct oil. The Standard Oil Company (Indiana) has produced three oils which will correctly lubricate the entire range of tractors. These are: Heavy Polarine Oil, Standolind Tractor Oil, Extra Heavy Polarine Oil. Any Standard Oil representative will 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.
