Bulkley, for 52 years a pnysician in Adair and .Macon counties died Saturday evening at 8 o'clock at the Home or a daughter In Carthage, Mo., following a heart attack. The 74 year old veteran of general country practice had left LaPlata last Wednesday for a short visit in South Missouri ana Decame in aoout o- clock Saturday afternoon. Funeral services were Tuesday aft' ernoon at 2 o'clock at his home in La- Plata, conducted by the Rev. J. L. Shoemaker, pastor of the Christian church, and burial was made -in the LaPlata cemetery. Dr. Bulkley is survived by one son Dr. C. H. Bulkley, of LaPlata, and two daughters, Mrs. Guy Vallely, Wisconsin, and Mrs. Win. Banta, Carthage, Mo., at whose home he died. He Also has 2 grand children, Cary and Nan Hopson, of Cortez, Colo. Dr. Bulkley served as president of the LaPlata school board for years and also as city health officer. He was tendered the nomination for may or by his party, last spring, but declined to assume greater responsibili ties. He was highly regarded in busi ness and professional circles not only as a physician but as a man. His disposition was most kindly. He was an ardent advocate of abolishment of any sort of corporal punishment in home or school. He taught at intermittent periods for 17 years before becoming a physician, was for a time assistant instructor in elocution at the old Kirks-ville State Normal school, and served on the LaPlata Board of Education for 36 years, most of the time as president. He secured his first school in Colorado, at the age of 17, but after that term came back to Missouri and taught in his home district at Nind. among former schoolmates for seven years. Following his venture into pedagogy, young Bulkley started to a med ical college. He soon ran short of funds and went back to school teaching and farming. In 1889 he had sufficiently replenished his educational funds to go back to his study of medicine and in 1891 he was graduated. In later years Dr. Bulkley has devoted considerable time to the accumulation of data on the Bulkley family, and has published a booklet, "A Genealogical Record of the Bulkley Family." He has traced his ancestry to Robertus Dus De Bulkley, who was born in England during the reign of King John (1199-1216). The story runs in the family that Robertus gained the favor of old King John, singer of the famous Magna Charter, by rescuing him from an infuriated bull. The record of the Bulkley family in America began with the immigration of Peter Bulkley, who founded and settled the town of Concord, Mass., in 1635. A governor of Connecticut, a judge of the supreme court of Connecticut, noted college professors and ministers are listed among the Bulkleys in America. Dr. J. F. Bulkley's grandfather was with General Winfield Scott and after one encounter, carried the wounded general off the field. Dr. Bulkley's father was named Winfield Scott Bulkley. He helped to build Fort Dearborn on the lake at the mouth of Dearborn street, Chicago. He also fought in the Black Hawk war and made a record that can be found in the Chicago library. He was an uncompromising abolitionist and fought In tie war of the rebellion for the Union. He could quote almost the entire Bible. He died in Adair County, Mo., July 13, 1904, in his 89th year. The inscription on his tomb is "The world is a stage and all the men are players. So live that when the curtain draw, you'll hear the music of applause." So avid of knowledge were some of the elder Bulkleys that the president of Shurteff college wrote of the Rev Justus Bulkley D. D., L.L.D.: :"He would work for a neighbor lady, Mrs. Gerry, one day in the w eek to get the privilege of reading her newspaper, the 'Saturday Evening post it awaK ened a desire for more knowledge." ROYAL NElulIBORS HOLD CONVENTION .The Royal Neighbor Convention was held In Kirksvllle last Thursday aft ernoon, the meet included twelve camps from Macon, Adair and Schuyler counties. At this meeting it was decided to hold the convention at La Plata, the latter part of June or the first of July, next year. Tbt convention was held In the Woodmen Hall and was. called to order at 1:30 o'clock by the president, Mrs. Myron Miller. The program opened with the singing of "My Country Tis of Thee," followed by prayer and address of welcome by the Rev. Dr. R. C. Gresham, of the Baptist church. Three county officers were present, Mrs. Myron Miller, of Kirksvllle, and Mesdames White and Gooch, of Elmer. A class adoption and school of instruction were held and proved very interesting, LaPlata, Elmer, Kirks-ville, and Lancaster each gave drills and the drill work by LaPlata and Elmer were exceptionally fine.

Snakes-Woodchuck Thrills Are Missing Boy Scouts On Hike Fail To Fierce Wild Animals Find The "Rocky Forty" which was the destination of LaPlata Boy Scouts and their scout-master, Rev. Fred L. Hudson, for a hike and camping trip yesterday, produced no bears or wild animals more fierce than a fox squir rel to thrill the boys although a uni que animal incident occurred there, a L'ew years ago. A steel trap, set by Shorty Givens to catch a woodchucli that had been stealing his watermel ons, caught not only the woodchuck but at the same time a ten-button rat tle-snake. A fierce battle had evi dently resulted when trap and con tents were discovered, the woodchuck being dead and swollen to the size of a small bear from the poisonous bites of the snake. The mystery of how the two got into the trap at same time could not be solved. A deep, narrow gorge running through this piece of land has almost perpendicular walls of solid sand stone, the only stone of any consider able quantity in this part of Macon county, and from this Isolated chasm of rock the forty acres of land gets us name of "Rocky Forty. The fifteen boys composing the camp are Gip Hudson, John Benjamin, Elmer Gunn, Lowell Johnson, Kenneth James, Worth Lindley, J. B. Stevens, Logan and Joe Thompson, Teddy and Freddy Williams, Kenneth Finn, George Gail Heather, Leon Gar-lock and Jesse Williams.

E. Egg-bert, third trick operator noticed a car door partially open. Shoving the door forward to close it, Eggbert was greeted from the interior with a volley of domestic and foreign cuss words as to why he was disturbing the occupant. With considerable dar ing and undoubted pluck, Eggbert jumped in the car and confronted a good big husky young hobo whom he ordered to get out. Gabe Gilbreath heard the altercation as he was on his way to open his cafe, and called the night-watch, George Mikel who took the "Bo" to jail despite his vigorous resistance. Before Police Judge Reed the gentleman of leisure announced he did not want work, but wanted three meals a day. He was promptly sentenced to act as chauffeur for Marshal Milt Chadwick's wheel-barrow and shovel until $8.20 worth had been worked out under Milt's watchful eye. Macon County Holds A Unique Museum New Cambria Physician Has Private Collection north Seeing When 'Mr. and Mrs. Frank Robert son of the Macon County Press Asso ciation entertained the organization with a picnic dinner in the New Cambria city park, last Friday, they also planned an excursion to the museum owned and collected by Dr. C. O. West. Dr. West has built just back of his nice residence a special building 10x12 to house his wonderful collections of curios. The ceiling of this building has been papered with old United States postage stamps numbering more than 40,000. The side walls are papered with rotogravure pictures from the metropolitan dail ies. The walls can hardly be seen however, for the splendid collection of old fire arms consisting of almost every imaginable kind of gun used since gunpowder was invented. There are 10,000 Indian arrow and spears heads of every size Chipped from ev ery kind of stone susceptible for their make. Some 100 Indian pipes, stone hatchets and tomahawks go to make up the wonderful collection that is enhanced in value and Interest by old clocks, spinning wheels, spooling wheels, wind-blades, loom shuttles, hemp and flax hackles, carding boards for making wool rolls, reels for wind ing wool hanks, birds of many strange and native breeds, eggs from most of our American birds and an ostrich egg of enormous size. He has many old land grants made to his father, signed by presidents Zachariah Taylor, Millard Filmore and Tyler. His father, a doctor, kept a perfect set of books dating from 1838 down to his death and in these ledgers are recorded every visit, his charge for medicine and credits for payments made in money, cattle, hogs, farm tools, bacon and all kinds of meat. One man's account is credited with so many dollars in payment on his account and a balance of $28 is credited by "dying insolvent." Altogether, Dr. West has the largest and most interesting collection of antiques to be found in north Missouri or any other part of the state as far as any of the visiting editors knew. A splendid welcome address was given to the editors by Rev. H. M. Gardner, pastor of the Federated church at New Cambria. William Schneider of LaPlata talked on dairy-' ing to the farmers and business peo ple in aitenciance, and Dr. J. P. Foster of LaCrosse talked on the develop ment of the community spirit.

Mrs. Nora Lou Dodson (iilbrtath I "So when life's sweet journey ends, j Soul und body part like friends No quarrels, no murmurs, no delay; A kiss, a si.h, and so away." Thus ended the earthly life of one dearly beloved. Nora Lou Dodson, daughter of George R. and Louisa Dameron Dodson, was born in Randolph County, Mo., March 29, 1862. She fell asleep June 20, 1929. She was the sixth child in a family of eight children. Of the brothers and sisters who survive her, there are, L. Taylor Dodson, Bell-ingham, Washington; Joseph E., Thomas J., and George A. Dodson, all of LaPlata, .Mo.; Mrs. T. F. Gilbreath, LaPlata, and Mrs. M. Sue Piatt, Grand Rapids, .Mich. One of the older brothers, who lived in the West, died a lew years ago. On February 17, 1881, she was married to Hugh P. Gilbreath. Into their home were born two children, a son, who died in infancy, and a daughter, Mrs. W. O. Daniel, of LaPlata. Her husband preceded her to the eternal home four years ago. Mrs. Gilbreath, in her early girl hood made confession of her faith and united with Shiloh Presbyterian church where she remained a member until about 1900, when she with her hus band and daughter united with what is now the Community Presbyterian church. She loved her church dearly, and was identified with many forms of its life. She was a member of the Class of Esther, an organized Bible Class, for a period of more than ten years. For a like period, a member of the Woman's Missionary Society. Most of her life was spent in this community. When she was two years old her parents came to this county and settled on the farm south of La-Plata, where Mr. Thomas J. Dodson now lives. When Mrs. Gilbreath was fourteen years of age her mother died and as she was the oldest daugh ter at home, she assumed the respon sibility of being mother to the brothers and sisters at home. And thus she has continued to live for others, and still lives in their lives. Funeral services were conducted from the Community Presbyterian church on Sunday afternoon, June 23, by her pastor, Rev. Fred L. Hudson, after which the body was laid to rest ia the LaPlata cemetery. Well may we think upon the words which were used at the service conducted in her honor: "Eye hath not seen, ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man the things the Lord hath prepared for them that love Him." A poem that hung on the wall of "the little church of flowers" in Glen- dale, Calif, was sent as a comforting message by -Mrs. Florence Davis in memory of "Our Nora who was crossing over a little strip of sea into the Beyond. Beyond It seemeth such a little way to me. Across th.it strange country; The Beyond. For it has grown to be The home of those of whom I am So Fond. And so for me there is no death, It is but crossing with abated breath, A little strip of sea.
