So much continuous rain is lhaking farmers wonder about When they can cut or combine their wheat or cultivate their corn again. You Ml:. Vernon people seem to be getting more than your share of rain, hail, wind and thunder and lightning, but are much more fortunate than many 6ther places that have been leveled by those frightful "twisters." If only we could vote them out. Mr. Stanley Stegall of the Sin- flair Oil Company, a native of Texas, has been working - out of the Evansville office for some time and has done some leasing yi. this and other near by communities for oil wells. ;• Mrs. George Edson of Mt. Vernon and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Edson of Benton were recent visitors with Miss Julia Mills. The Edson family were former residents in this neighborhood. • Flora Rich and Gladys Peeke and several of the Peeke children of Broughton were visitors at the I. C. Schuster home here some days ago, as also were Mr. and Mrs. George Rich of McLeans boro Mrs. Schuster's parents. .'. Our friend, Roscoe Quinn, informs us that his brother, Toney, Wife and son, of Kernersville, North Carolina, are visiting relatives here at Mt. Vernon. Roscoe and Toney are sons of William (Bill) Quinn • and spent their younger days on the farm nearby. • Mr. and Mrs. Amos Spurlock, living south of here, drove here to 1 the home of Miss Julia Mills a few days ago and she accompanied them to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jim Cochrum. Mr. Cockrum is reported to be bedfast and seriously ill. Miss Julia, many years ago, taught school down that way and lived with the Cockrum family. " Austin Robinson, Billy Myers, and Jim Meredith, three youths from New Harmony, Ind. were out last week with a truck and the necessary tools to trim trees for the A. T. and T. company here along this old road. Mr. and Mrs. Isadore Schuster and daughter and son, Dale, went to McLeansboro last Monday to Visit relatives and friends. ; It was a real pleasure for our neighbors, as well as this scribbler to again greet Mr. and Mrs. Ernie Goetz and son, Harold and his gM friend, who drove down here frorn Waukegan to visit old friends. The Goetz family, including another son, Earl, about three years ago, operated the filling station, restaurant and grocery at the Mills Curve. They came here from Waukegan and later returned there but during their stay here made many friends who are mutually glad to see them again. •• The 4th of July has always been a' "day of days" especially to the youth of our land. In our early life we recall that we never slept very much on the night of July third, in our feverish anxiety to be iure to- be up early on the morn­ ing of the 4th so as to make itjas big and long a day as possible in our youthful enthuiasm for the glorious fourth, and to get as much as possible out of it. Back in those early days the custom in the old home town was to fire a salute of as many "guns" as the number of years that had fled since the signing of the Declaration of Independence, in 1776. They had no cannon but a good substitute consisted of two anvils at the blacksmith shop. A blacksmith ran out from the shop and poured a charge of powder in a crevice in the anvil, a helper placed another anvil upon it. Out from the shop another blacksmith rushed with a long iron rod heated red hot at one end, which he poked against the powder B-O-O-O-O-M!" roared the powder! Off flew the top anvil. This was all only a short time after the close of the Civil War, and patriotism was then at a high pitch and at that time "the woods were full of veterans of the Civil War". We recall their rapture in singing the old patriotic songs of the Civil War. 'other songs of America, as well as old religious songs and secular songs of that period. And could they sing! We who have known thousands of old vets of the Civil War, away back in the years when many of them were comparatively young and we lived as they gradually "faded away" (as MacArthur's song stated) feel a twinge tugging at our heart at the sad thought that they are practically all gone.
