IBM NUMBER it THE Writes Letter From Canada Harry Rote of Gadsby. Alberta, Canada, Write (Letter to Pott, master at New Trturton Note by Editor. The following letter date January 28, wai written by Harry Rosi of Gadsby, Alberta, Canada, and tent to the Postmaster at New Truxton, Mo. Mr. Ross wag a 9-year-old boy when the Cash Bros. Construction Co. back In 1903 and 1904 built the Burlington Railroad through Hawk Point and New Truxton. His father served as a foreman for the construction company, and It was at that time that he became a good friend of John Luelf of near Hawk Point. His letter will bt of Interest to Banner readers, and Is therefore reprinted.) "Whoever you are, I am sure you will take time to acknowledge receipt of this letter even though you have not the slightest Idea as to whom I might be. Well, I'll tell you. In the winter of 1903-1904 I was a kid of about nine years old, going to a small country school about three or four miles from Old Truxton. My father was construction boss on Cash Bros, grading outfit, building the Burlington Railroad you . are now on. We camped on Luelf's farm and for 45 years now I have not forgotten old Missouri and have wondered If anybody around there might re-i member our outfit. I Imagine some of the Luelf family must be around yet. If so please get me in touch with them or let me hear from you. "We left Missouri the spring of 1904, finished a job at Glenwood, Iowa, in June, spent the 4th of July In Omaha, Nebr., shipped to Canada and started work at La combe, Alberta, in July 1904, on one of the first branch lines in Alberta, running east to the prairies where my dad homesteaded In 1905 and I am at present still grain farming. This country was then known as the Northwest Territory and was all Just wide open space with an old cattle ranch, but Is now all grain and cattle and of course mechanized, has good roads and Is now one of the biggest oil prospects on the continent with lots of large Texas drill outfits drilling everywhere. "Oh, I forgot to tell you why I am writing to you Missouri friends today. Well, I've got lots of time and it's too cold to go anywhere. It's 39 below now, last night It was 50 below here and north a little It's been down to 73 below aero. I suppose you have read about your troops taking part In winter exercises, together with our Canadian boys up north along the Alaskan Highway. They Just came up about a week ago. Their instructions Included a warning that they faced the possibility of freezing to death if they got lost in the wilderness and boy, it's no Joke. Last night was clear and cold and when you stood and listened the power and telephone wires Just sreamed with wlerd sound and if you threw a pan of boiling water out it just roars like thunder and falls to the ground In the form of Ice pellets. Still in spite of It sometimes being rather cold, things go on Just the same and we have a wonderful country here with grain and cattle raised on the top, unlimited coal rights below the grass roots which you uncover with bulldozer exposing 7 or 8 ft. of pure coal, ready to load Into trucks and farther down about a mile you find oil In great quantity. "Further north you find the athal-aska tan sands right on the surface, exposed to the air, with oil enough In them to supply the world for a thou sand years. The city of Edmonton Is the Jumping off place for the northern hinterland and Is the headquarters for United States and Canadian Military and Aviation Operations, as well as Exploration Air Operations to the north and start of the Alaskan Highway which is now open to the motoring public In the summer, If you are properly equipped. The Rocky Mountains are a short day's drive by car or truck on fair roads from where I farm (about 160 mles). There you can find moose, deer, bears, goats, etc., as well as plenty of mountain trout and other fish. Right at home here we have geese, ducks, chickens and other small game and further east to Saskatchewan yow find antelope which are now gathered In herds up In the mountains, driven by cold and hunger right up to the towns seeking anything to eat. "Yet, in spite of the fact that we Jive In a land of untold resources the common man does not make a fortune very easily. Farming of course Is a gamble everywhere. Last summer we never had any rain at all until the 28th of June and thousands of acres of crop never even sprouted. So that was 1949 lost as far as grain was concerned (Well, next year maybe). "I would like to hear a little bit about what your district Is like now, compared to what it was In 1903. Have you a local newspaper In Truxton? If so I would be very pleased to have a copy, or the address of same. I am hoping to make a trip back to Nebraska and Missouri some time and would like to plan a little ahead for places of Interest If any of you folks around there are thinking of a holiday trip this summer don't over look a great trip to "uaigary stampede" In July, with a ride trip to Banff, Lake Louise and the Columbia Ice Fields, (Glaciers), all accessible to your car or truck. W1U be glad to try 'to answer any letter concerning anything I can. If you should find this letter of Interest to you or any of your Mends you may circulate It or even stick it in a corner of your local paper for a filler, News From The Warrenton Schools Grade School Commencement, Thnm, Mar 18 With Rev.

SCHRANTZ, 83, DIED THURSDAY, MAY 4 Mrs. John George Schrantz (nee Anna Matilda Schwarze) was called to her rest at the family heme1 4 ' Warrenton at noon, Thursday, May 4th, after only a few hours of illness. Mrs. Schrantz, who had reached the age of 83, wa9 the daughter of Frederick and Justine Schwarze, one of the well known and respected pioneer families of Warren County. Born December 8, 1866 at the family home in the Hopewell vicinity, where she was reared and educated. The deceased was baptized in infancy by the pastor of the Holstein Evangelical Church. She accepted membership in the Evangelical Church to which she remained faithful throughout her life, by the rite of confirmation on April 2, 1882, at Holstein, Mo. She grew to young womanhood at the family home and on March 7, 1894 was united in marriage to J. George Schrantz, one of War-renton's highly respected citizens, who was prominent in public life. Three children, Werner, Maria and George, all of whom survive to. mourn her death, were born to this union. On Friday, March 1, 1007, when death claimed her husband, the deceased was left with her three small children to rear. With resolute spirit and loving devotion Mrs. Schrantz took up her tasks of motherhood to keep a loving memory of the home she and her husband had established. Through out the yeara of her life she kept her family intact and held them together in family devotion. She reared her children in the Christian faith through affiliation with the congregation, to which she transferred her membership at marriage. She gave them sturdy and true principles of life to mold their characters. With thrift and dedication to her family, she guided and helped to provide each one with a college education, so they might be equipped to meet the tasks and problems of life. Trials came to the family, but the spirit of acceptance and the ability to meet them with fortitude kept her strong in spirit. Always an interested participant but of a retiring personality. Mrs, Schrantz was an active member of the Frauen Verein and Ladies Aid Society of this congregation un til November 1, 1024 when she fractured her hip. The love and devotion she had given her children came to bless her in the years when she was physically handicapped. During this time she had the loving care of her daughter, Maria, who was her constant companion in the but at any rate let me know If you got It and If any of the class of ,1903 are still there. Yours very respectfully. (Signed) Harry Ross, Box 153, Gadsby, Alberta, Canada."

Goettel, of Independ- Oi-T OAKEN ,o0t& The Evil Trend By JOHN 11. (Note by Editor. In the following article, John H. Fahien, owner of Fahien's Flower Farm at Warrenton, and Republican candidate for Congressman for the Ninth District, discusses some of the evil trends in our government. Mr. Fahien is a student ot political science and has given much thought to the problems confronting our .government.) Twenty-seven years ago the government of Soviet Russia was not recognized. Today we have a Soviet Ambassador in Washington, D. C, and Communists in our government. The present trend la government is without parallel in its history. Expenditures have exceeded the national income to an alarming and dangerou degree. The budget deficit as of May 6 was $3,019,516,063.52 and the total debt was $255,725,764,746.15. This has been caused by wild and unnecessary spending. This spending leads to corruption in government, to infiltration of gangsters and to Communism. This unnecessary spending leads to the duplication of government bureaus, necessitating numerous Federal employees. This begets a race of bureaucrats with high salaries, whose ingenuity is exerted in continuing and promoting more Federal offices so thej may perpetuate themselves in office, thus causing a drain on the taxpayer. Confidence in these officals in government is. destroyed and the confidence of the people in their government is destroyed. Now when it so happens that one party remains in power for 20 or more years, it leads to the destruction and effacing of the minority and dissenting party, the surrender of the people to regimentation, and the destruction of the American Way of Life, the right of freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, freedom to worship, freedom of initiative in small business and in farming. Alarming and dangerous strides have been made in this direction. Large corporations, with millions of dollars in capital, and large numbers of stockholders, are now bound to the government through tax laws, and the rulings of various bureaus. This has also caused the failure of many smalt places of business. Large sections of the country, and thousands of people through these laws and regulations, are bound to the government. If this evil trend is followed to its logical conclusion, no one can fail to see that the love of country and its freedom will be destroyed, and in its place will spring up the love of power and greed. The strength of a government lies in this love of freedom, and its faith in God. It was for this love that the forefathers of this nation fought the War of the Revolution, the Civil War, and in our generation, World War I and World War II. It was this love of freedom that built this nation, and it is this love, we of this generation must guard for our decendents and posterity. Let it not happen that in a future generation: "There is a generation that curseth their fathers, and doth not bless their mothers". Prov. 30: 11, or asrain, "There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaws as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from men." Prov. 30: 14. We have the ballot, and we have the men who fought in battle on foreign soil for this love, and are familiar with the conditions as they exist today. Where a choice is to be made, these men should be elected to national office. The people who because of a defeatist complex, or for other reasons, remain away from the polls on election da, will be judged as being equally guilty of this evil trend in government by future generations. Must World War III he fought and the peace lost through Democratic bungling? Must we have another Wilson at Versailles, Roosevelt at Yalta, or Truman at the Potsdam Conference? Secretary of State Dean Acheson is now in Europe, and before leaving for Europe warns of a world crisis. CELEBBATE 4TH WEDDING ANNTV. AT VENTURA, CALIF.

The vacuum cleaner with all the different brushes makes modern cleaning easy. Also the many kinds of soap powders, paint and wallpaper clean ers, and all the other helps, makes short work of cleaning. Back in grandmother's day there were no vacuum cleaners, and no other conveniences such as we have now. For cleaning the knives, forks and spoons, (the common kind that needed brightening), grandmother beat a piece of brick into a fine powder and scrubbed the tableware as shiny as possible. She scrubbed the bare kitchen floor with soft soap, sand and wa tcr. Spring cleaning in those days meant aa entire upheaval for days. was no easy job and was done thoroughly in spring and fall. All the furniture was carried out into the yard. Then the tacks were arefully taken up and saved, from the room-sized rag carpet. The carpet was taken outside and ripped apart so that each dusty strip oould be dusted and washed (tub and board style of course) then ater after the house and contents were clean, the carpet strips were sewn together again and put down with tacks, with a foot layer of lean straw underneath the car pet. This chore of course came af ter the old layer of straw and thick dust of a season was all car ried out and burned and the floor scrubbed with lye soap and spring water While the room was empty was the time for the white wash to be put on the walls. It was put on with brooms. While not as satisfactory at our modern Kemtone it brightened the walls and made the house seem lighter. I Imagine a few wealthier pion eer folks might own a few choice Currier and Ives prints to adorn their newly white washed walls but most country folks of that era cut pictures from any magazines that came rarely into their possession and tacked them here and there on the white walls. A few pioneer ladies made their own pictures from hair and some4 from feathers. These were formed into flowers made on fine wire, formed into wreaths and placed within a deep carved frame with glass on top to keep out the dust How many readers have seen these old time pictures with hair flow crs or of feathers? They are beau tiful, odd, and show hours of patient work. I admire them most of any antique. To go back to spring cleaning of long ago. The beds were all tak en apart and bed slats were dust ed and scrubbed, the straw ticks were emptied and ticks washed and refilled with new sweet smelling straw. The feather beds were cleaned and sunned and aired quilts were washed. No one heard of mattresses or blankets in those days. If the rag carpet was faded, grandmother took two colors of dye she made from different barks or roots and painted bright stripes or checks on the old faded carpet During spring cleaning days the dinner was usually a boiled one of dried beans, boiled meat, dried sp pies and Johnnie hoe-cake, made of corn meal. A trip had to be made to the spring house for the bowl of fresh yellow butter and the pit cher of cold buttermilk After the good country meal the work of spring cleaning seemed to go fast er and when everything was plac ed to rights again, those dear wo- 12.4MilesToBe Resurfaced Soon Contract Awarded to Missouri Petroleum Co. for $37,489 for Project on Highway 47, South The Missouri State Highway Commission has approved a bid for 12.4 miles of bituminous mat resurfacing on Highway 47, south of Warrenton to Marthasville, to Missouri Petroleum Products Co. of St. Louis County.
