In sheer volume its (M pages con- fctiltt e the Mi'jost ncwspur/ir ever published in Ihe county. It is also, we believe, the largest coinpilnlioii of information concerning Mississippi county ever published in any form. That it is in many ways incomplete and inadequate we are only too well aware. But \vc are confident thai prcscnl'ami former residents, of Uii.s county will (ind the material which it / contains of sufficient interest and value amply to justify the effort in\ olvcd in getting it together. That it i,s as complete as it is is due to the co-opci,ition of many residents of the county who have furnished information and photographs and otheiwibo assisted in assembling the ma'lerial which this paper contains, Space does not permit acknowledgement lieio of the Courier's obligation to all \Uio have thus helped, but especial mention is duo Oscar Fendlei for the History of Mississippi County, which appears on pages one and two of Section L)., and Mrs. F.

To them, aa to all others who have'helped, wo . albo CMJVCSS our appreciation. The development which has taken plice in Mississippi county in the past century, .is described in these pages, is .still going on. Some understanding of the years behind should help thc new generation to build bel- ter for the ahead. : Mississippi county's great potentialities lie in the future. As we review with piide the progress of one hundred yeais we may look ahead and p'an for changes to come that will make the rontiat>l between 2036 and 1936, though different, as great 'as that between 1936 and 183G. Foi thc- iccoid of the past is evidence that ours is not a slaK iminity, satisfied to live 'jv"f \\^ -*•* "" forc . oiri oim WAT fathers lived. Mississippi county's record is one of men who have gone ahead over hardships and difficulties. May the example of the men who first developed .this county serve to keep alive that spirit for the future. learning for (lie Fourth We cannot have loo many reminders that the "safe and. sane" Kourtli of July is still to be attained. Fireworks still arc dangerous things for children. Last year they killed two dozen persons and blinded 07. This year, unless parents are far more watchful than they wore last year, explosives will exact an equally heavy toll. There is not very much the police can do to prevent these tragic accidents. For the most part, the job is up to fathers and mothers. If they can't keep fireworks out of thtir youngster's hands altogether, they can at least see to it that the things are discharged with Uio proper care. A firecracker, after all, is nothing but a miniature bomb. It needs to be handled with the same kind of caution that is given to its full-grown military brother. On "Bumming" Cigarettes Clov.

It Is n skillful reversal of nn old political custom. Clsarn should never l:c pressed upon casual acquaintances, because It cnnnol be done gracefully. A clBnr Is « thing of sonic value. It is worth at least n'nickel. It may lie worth n dollar. If it Is a bad cigar, the receiver resents tlie Imputation upon tils iaslc. If it Is n good cigar, Hie transaction has about It the iiir of bribery. Wliy, the receiver asks himself, should a man wish to part with so excellent a Itilng Io someone lie hasn't known for five minutes?

March silently eliminated breakfast from her schedule. She was sitting in her room, the blue hat on, her face pale and her eyes ringed wilh violet, waiting for the station wagon, when Marion came inlo tho room. "Marcia Cunningham, you look likit tlie last of the ten plagues of Israel! Waal in the world— bul you have to have some breakfast, before you go. You can't just sit here!" So she went into tlie dining room, and perfunclorily poured some codec und spattered a waffle iron wilh baiter. Camilla was making o.-mcakes and creaming beef to "go with them. At first the significance of this action was lost on Marcia. Then she realized that Camilla was making very good pancakes and the creamed meal looked ' tempting. Camilla could cook! Well, Phil wouldn't be hungry anyway, in the Pampas. * * * J-JER own waffles were ready and she put. them on a plate. To prolong the motion of doing something she pretended that she would like some bacon and covered the waffles to keep them hot. Phil had drawn near.

Cam's bright voice broke into Ihe conversalion. She carried .. plate in each hand and Bob was wilh her. "Here, my lollipops,"—she mo tionetl Io Ihe two men—"I've prc pared your food. Now draw up your chairs and eat while I prepare refills." The station wagon -was rounding (be corner. Helievcdly, Marcia picked up her bae and gloves. Wilh a quick goodby to Marion, she slipped out of the room, ran across the veranda, climbed inlo the wagon. She was running away again, running away (his time because she had been asked to go. Phil might have been a little more al- tcntive, she mused, as the wagon started. "Marcia, waill Hey, driver—" "She heard a voice calling her. She knew that it came from Phil but she did not look back. "Never mind, please," she told the driver. 'I think we had bellcr hurry." * * * 'TIIEItE was no boal for three days, she learned in Paris. The morning of the third day Ibe clerk told her that Camilla was registered once more. "Oh yes," she repeated.

So there had been a wedding! Not unlil then did she realize that iomcwhere, in the far corners of tei 1 mind, she had been hoping (hat it might be Bob whom Camilla was marrying. She knew now. That was—something. Her feet dragged as she walked to the clevntor. She could feel Ihe walcr in her slippers and Afi 'not care. A girl stepped from the car as Marcia waited for the jsssengers lo leave. Glancing up, she saw Camilla. "Marcia! We scoured Ihe city for you! Wish me luck, honey! i married, and I wanted you there!" 'I hope you'll be ever so happy, Camilla. 1 know you will. Phil's a darling—" She wondered at the clearness of her own voice. "Phil? But it wasn't Phil, Marcia. I married Dob!" "Bob?" Marcia's eyes grew wider and grayer. "Camilla, you married Bob?" Tlie other girl sobered. "I know what you are thinking—[hat Bob wanted mop.ey and I haven't any.

"The boat train to Cherbourg." Tho rain was falling i:i a steady downpour when she reached the tender lhat would carry her lo the big ship. The last-minute confusion of sailing was progressing a little wearily. Marcia fell let down. Phil had not been on the train and she had not found him on the tender. But bo must be on the boat. Yet she bad not seen him when ihe engines began to sroan and the gangplank was taken up. The night grew darker. She climbed ihe narrow iron steps lo the upper deck and sat down in n lifeboat. When the confusion was over she would ask for his cabin. Then she saw him. He was standing near a smokestack-, hands in his pockets, eyes on the vanishing coastline. "Phil!" She called softly. He turned, wonderingly, and wailed. "Phil!" She climbed down from, the boat. This time he turned.and came to her. "Marcia!" His hands held hers lighlly and his eyes searched her face. "Wlial are you doing here?" "Sailing." "But thc boat isn't going to New York, Marcia. It's bound for South America.
