JEFFERSON COUNTY RECORD April 03, 1913 part# 2
Record Makers in the Record
Are you a Van-Guardsman or a Tail-Ender?
How much intelligent examination and appreciation do you give to the local advertising in the Record? Have you noticed that the Jefferson County Bank and Peoples Bank both of DeSoto and the Kimmswick Bank are hustlers for business, and are advancing not only their own business but the status of sound finance in our county?
Have you ever noticed that DeSoto Roller Mills and the Kimmswick Roller Mills keep the advertising of their business, down-to-the-minute, look again and you will note that for hardware and and ware of like nature the CUNNINGHAM-HAMEL Merchantile Co. of DeSoto is easily leader. That for farm implements, and general black smithing, Henry HURTGEN & Son and Frank BECHLER, two Hillsboro firms, are promptly yours to command. That when it comes to eatables and drinkables Hillsboro presents E.A. MARSDEN, J.W. ECKLE, and F.E. SPILKER who can attend your wants on short order, and most acceptably too.
Then again there is J.M.CHRIST the DeSoto baker who is not at all adverse to your knowing of his superior ice cream and bread. Go in and see for yourself.
The HERCULANEUM Lumber Co. offers all kinds of building materials and handles a large stock of only the high class and artistic. Astonia sends Julius A. KOHLER to the front and besides selling all sorts of desirable things offers a fine line of millinery. Momuments and marble work is done by C.A. SCHOLLKOPF of DeSoto an artist in his line and the oldest in that business.
Dr. CHAMBERLAIN is a popular DeSoto dentist who looks after the comfort and good looks of a large number of Jefferson County citizens. Kimmswick is ever the front in good business, and M. ZEIGLER the jeweler and watchmaker, has patronage which is not confined to Rock and Joachimtownship by any means.
"HINCHEYS" of DeSoto is a household word all over the county. They have two stores where you can buy anything under the sun but a beef steak.
Jefferson Co. is a strong leader in poultry, F.E. OBERMILLER the prize winner at Kimmswick, Henry RUNGE at Barnhart, and Mrs. Ray CALDWELL of Hillsboro being chicken fanciers right.
The farmers interests are looked after by the WILEY Merchantile Co. of DeSoto who are offering a car load of seed potatoes in connection with their general merchandising. Speaking of farmers, reminds us of real-estate and you will note in the Record that Chris JENNI of Festus and F.J. ADAMS of Hillsboro are in the business and make a specialty of farm property. Good farm property, makes for good roads, and good roads encourage the automobile, and our automobile man is J.P. BOEMLER, Eureka, r.f.d 18 and he certainly sells them, for he is a hustler. So you see they all want business and they use business methods to get it. The man who advertises is up to date, ready and active. He is more likely to give you prompt service and fresh up to date goods than the fellow who waits for you to drop in. We think that the list of advertisers in our columns are entitled to consideration and that you should give it to them.

Our School Meeting Saturday
The Educational meeting held Saturday was highly interesting to those who were fortunate enough to attend. Supt. Burwell FOX of Potosi, a stalwart school man gave an interesting account of the getting up of school exhibits. Miss Roberta BRUNER of Cape Girardeau gave a most excellent address upon 'Ventilation and Heating' was most able and convincing. Our Hillsboro teachers gave excellent papers; Miss WILLIAMS on Reading and Miss BOYER upon Cooperation of Patrons and Teachers. A number of ratrons also spoke. One school meeting a year ought not to be too rich for Hillsboro blood but attendance is never what it should be.
HENDRIX's sale last Saturday was well attended. Many came from surrounding districts as well as neighbors, and all stock and machinery sold at a good advantage.
Paul LEE and sister Mrs. LEWIS were DeSoto visitors last Saturday.
Peter LEE is on the sick list this week.
Ura WEBER has recovered from the mumps and is again attending school in DeSoto.
We are glad to learn that Mrs. D.C. JONES and daughter Mrs. SHELLY arrived safely in New Mexico and had gotten through Kansas before the storms.
