Vol. XIII, No. 8

[ page 3, column 2 ]

Mr. and Mrs. B. A. MARSDEN spent yesterday in St. Louis.

Mrs. W. L. STONE gave a quilting Thursday to about a dozen guests.

The young people gave a little dance at the hall Saturday night, a
“small and early.”

Quite an enjoyable program was presented at the hall Friday evening.
The proceeds go to the Christian Endeavor Society.

Mr. MITCHELL, of St. Louis, is running the linotype for the Record this
week in Mr. SCHNEIDER’s absence, during the illness of his little

Mrs. REPPY is up again after a tree weeks tussle with grip and its tow
or three weeks relapses.

Mrs. Thomas LANHAM is critically ill of stomach trouble and has been

Mrs. Edwards WILLIAMS and her small son, of East St. Louis, came down
Monday, and have been visiting kin folk about Hillsboro since. She will

looking up the records relative is the location of a line to Festus. It
is quite likely that these people will secure the De Soto plant which
would be an excellent thing for De Soto, as they would instal[sic] a

Hillsboro if they get into De Soto.

George W. GASCHE, Robert E. KLEINSCHMIDT and John H. REPPY, were the
Hillsboro contingent attending the Lincoln Banquet in St. Louis, Monday
night. St. Louis is some big town and has some big hotels, but just as
this season they are loaded to the guards. The Maryland, the Laclede
LaSalle, Warwick American, American Annex and Terminal Hotels were all
full. The Planters had only two rooms left and the Hillsboro bunch had
to be content with these. The banquet was a very decided success, there
being about a thousand present from all parts of the state. Gov.
WILLIS, of Ohio, was the principal speaker. Others who spoke were Mayor
Henry W. KIEL, H. T. LINCOLN, of Springfield; G. H. BOEHN of Ava and
Raymond G. BARNETT of Kansas City. At the beginning of the banquet the
loyalty of the Republicans of Missouri in this hour of crisis was
pledged to President WILSON in a toast which ?? drank standing, and
then led by the band sang the Star Spangled Banner.
