The Union Pacific farm prepared j
ness special arrived here ahead of
schedule time last Thursday evening
and the band did not get to the de
pot until after the train was in. A pa
rade was formed and marched to the
court house square where stock judg
ing was held for a couple of hours.
All three of the meetings in town and
also the three country meetings were
well attended, though not many far
mers were present at the meetings
held in town. A great many farmers
were too busy to attend while many at
tended the country meetings who oth
erwise would have come to town.
Several interesting talks were given
by the different speakers. Th meetings
were a great success and the members
of the special said they were greeted
by large crowds every place where
they had been.
ENCOURAGE THE BOYS AND
“With only half a wheat crop in )
America, with the Argentina crop a 1
failure, with France behind in her i
farming and with a million or more |
; producers soon to be sent into the i
! army to be consumers, the food situa- 1
I tiou in the United States is serious," j
said Prof. P. G. Holden, director of the ;
, agricultural extension department of ;
: the International Harvester Company
who was one of the food experts on
the Union Pacific farm preparedness
“Isn’t it worth our while this year
to be a little more careful not to
waste food," he said. “I believe what
we waste in America would almost
feed us and it is a crime to waste food
when other people are going hungry.
Just now, farming is everything. It is
“I dont’ know but what this war will
jar us loose from some of our hide
bound notions and make us better. No I
progress was ever made except ;
through suffering. If I were your may- !
or I’d call all the people of this town !
! together to discuss what could be done i
to make this community more effici- '
ent. I wish I could put it into the
hearts of the people to do a little
more this year. What is success? It is
beating your own record every day." j
Mr. Holden is a great believer in
! giving the boys and girls on the farms
a chance to own something, to inter
est them in their work.
"If 1 wanted to make greater things
j these days," he said, "I’d begin with
I the boys and girls. These boys, many |
of them, cannot go into the trenches, I
but they can go into the Seals and
serve their country just a~ much, i
tell you it takes more courage to
march out into the field with a hoe
than it does to march to the front with
a gun when the hand is playing and
the people are cheering. But it is '
just as great a thing to do.
“Give the boy a pig. Let him pay !
for it by work. When the next crop
comes on that boy will be something
ahead. Owing something is what '
makes a boy. Sometimes 1 think mo
thers have a larger vision than fath
ers do for they are thinking in terms
of hoys and girls instead of in terms
of pigs and cattle and coin. 1 won- j

Boys were not born for the pigs. Pigs •
were born for the boys and tht girls." j

A TRAGIC DEATH.
The following account of the death

settler in Sherman county and was
well known by many of the old resi
Carl Shull was fatally injured at
Mine la Motte Wednesday night while
working at the Sand Mill, by having
the top end of a crow bar run through
the lower part of his stomach. It ap
pears that the unfortunate man was
up on a tressel attempting to move
a car. using the crowbar for that pur
pose. Another car became loosened
and rolled down from behind forcing
the blunt end of the crowbar into the
lower part of his stomach and out
through the lower part of bis back.
The impact of the two cars enabled
Shull to get from between them, ai
hotigh the bar of iron was sticking
through his body. With more grit than
is possessed by most men he pulled
the bar out of his body, walked down
two or three flights of steps and re
ported his injury. After cn auto came
to take him to the first aid room, he
walked to the machine and from the
machine to the room. He remained
conscious until either was administer
ed. A surgeon was called from Bonne
Terre and he and Dr. Barron at once
operated. The accident occured about
: 00 o'clock Wednesday night and the
man lived until 2:00 o’clock the next
afternoon. To add to the seriousness
of the injured man's condition it was
found that he was suffering from a
severe case of pneumonia which he
did not know. Mr. Shull's home was at
Marquant where he owned some prop
erty. He was taken there for burial
Friday. Our Marquand corresondent
reports the further fact that he leaves
a father, mother, brother and sister
