Rhone for food 28 and 43 The Laclede Countv Rural Carriers Association will meet this afternoon at Bennett Spring State Park, this being the annual meet irg. A bu-iness meeting will be held at 5 oclock. Officers will Le elected and delegates chosen to the State convention, to be held in August, in Cameron. A picnic supper and social evening will follow the business meeting. The local association expects tc secure the 1928 State convention for Lebanon, which, from all indications, will have the honor of entertaining the State Association next year.

This years- convention probably would have been held here but for the fact that the Stat' Association was organized in Cam eron twenty-five year ago, and that town wished to observe the anniversary by entertaining it again. The Skelly Oil Company, just finishing the work on the new -service station at Second and Jefferson, is adding a public wash rack for the use of all car owners who desire to use it. This will be an added convenience, and likely will be fully appreciated by the automobilist when he arrives with his car covered bv a coating of thin but dull-finish mud. Getting his car clean restores a mans self-respect like getting a clean shave after several days of neglect along this line. That May weather was.

not pH that could be desired is evident from the report of Mrs. Lou Mul-care, official weather observer. The temperature showed considerable variation. The maximum was 91 on the while the minimum was 38 on the 11th and There were 14 clear days, 14 cloudy days and three partly cloudy. There was hail on the 28th and the 30th.

The rainfall was 10.23 inches for the month, the greater amount in twenty-four hours being 3.10 inches on the 31s-t. The rainfall on June 1, 2, 3 and 6 was 3.17 inches, making a good start for the month. The wind storm of last Friday night did some damage to trees. A large maple in the rear of Mrs. Clara Wilsons home was broken off and a large oak in front of the S.

R. Farrar home, on Harwood avenue, was blown over, or possibly ftruck by lightning, there being some difference of opinion regarding this. The tree is at least fifty years old and the trunk atparently was sound, though the roots showed decay. Fortunately, the tree fell clear of the house, else the latter would have been seriously damaged. The rainfall in this section totals CO inches since September 1, 1926, nine months.

DemutH Grocery and Market The "Better Homes committee has been busy judging in the va-r ous contests that are a part of that work, but the complete list of awards has not been announced, as yet. It will be ready for publication next week. Mr. and Mrs. A.

E. Oliver were given first prize for outside re-tnodeling of the home, the prize being a $12.50 electric table stove, which they highly prize, both for its value as a home convenience and its significance as a prize. They have one of the most beautiful homes in Lebanon. Starting with a plain, unfinished house and barren lawn, they have, ini a few years, made of it a most attractive home, embellished with porches, trellises and a grassy lawn, with shrubbery and vines that give it a most irtviting appearance. A garage attached to the house is a recent improvement.

Mr. and Mrs. Earl Young received an $8.50 fern stand as first prize for a rebuilt home, as previously announced in The Republican. Their home was used as the demonstration home during Better Homes week. LEBANON DAY DESCENDANTS CARRY ON at Spring Valley Camp, twenty miles east of Lebanon, on Highway 66, The Countv Court, Judges Hill, Atchley and Honssinger, met on Monday, the 6th in adjourned term, holding a one-day session for the purpose of paving officers salaries, auditing accounts, and for such other business as might come before the Court.

At a previous meeting of the Court, Irving Goldsmith was declared to be insane and was by the Court ordered to be conveyed to the Nevada hospital for the insane, as a County patient. At Monday's meeting the salaries for county officers for the month of May were allowed and warrants were ordered drawn on the current fund in payment of same. A number of bills were allowed, among them three printing bills one for $16 for one of the local printing offices, and two in the total sura of $443.00, payment for work done for two foreign printing establishments. These two outside bills were for work don by the printing establishments in 1926. An order was made by the Court, and entered of record, notifying a justice of the peace, occupying one of the offices in the Court House, that the Court House is for the use of the county officers, and instructing the sheriff to see that such office occupied by the J.

P. shall be vacated. The Court ordered that the county collector, as has been the custom, shall be excused from going from township to township in the collection of the taxes. Court adjourned to Tuesday, July 5, the Fourth of July coming on Monday. The Court meets on the first Monday each month.

THE BAND CONCERT June 19 Come and bring all of your friends. Basket Picnic Dinner JUDGE ATWOOD HERE The firrt weeks vote by The Republicans reporters on the ouestion as to which district furnished the most interesting lot of news for the readers was decided in favor of Reagan. The Republicans statement that the prize would be awarded to the reporter receiving a majority vote was not quite as we intended making it. We did not, at any time, anticipate that one reporter would leceive a majority of all votes cast. Opinion varies too much for tl at.

The intention is, and it should have been stated, the reporter receiving the greatest num-Ler of votes is to receive the prize each week. The vote cast varied greatly, and the winner received one more vote than the one next to the lead. Voting on this weeks excellent contributions, the result may be entirely different. However, the vote will be counted as cast, whether the result is the same or different every week. The voting on the candidates in this little contest varies somewhat from the (political primary vote.

In that, we have just one time to vote. There may be seventeen candidates for one office. One candidate wins, and we have sixteen soreheads swearing vengeance on the successful candidate and sticking the knife into the ticket as a whole. In this contest we bave a new vote every week, and the loser this week may be the winner next week. The voting strength this week is increased to seventy-three, where last week it was seventy.

We shall increase our corps of reporters to 100, covering Laclede Coun ty in the news line. The second concert of the season by the Lebanon Concert Band will be given at Band Park Friday evening, with the following program: March Alcazar. Overture The Admiral. Clarinet solo Concert Waltz E. H.
