CARD OF THANKS I desire in this way to express my sincere thanks to the voters of Clin- tan county who so Ioyally supported On Friday, April 23rd at about 3:20 p. m. the Gsim Reaper Death laid his chilly palms upon one, that apparently enjoyed robust health a few days prior. At this precise time John Leo Gramann was fighting his last battle in the Sacred Heart Hos- pital here, where he had undergone lan operation for appendicitis, super- induced or ggravated by what was thought to be potomaine poisoning. We understand that he had suffered iwith attacks of this so prevalent disease for some time past. Even his parents and his closest friends this was not known, and so his rath- er sudden demise came as a shock to them as well as to the entire com- munity. IIans, as he was familiarly known to his colleagues and fet,ow towns- men, was a native of Aviston, hav- ing been born there on Dec. 9, 1889, he had consequently passed his thir- ty sixth mile stone of life. He was the sixth child of our Ven. Former teacher Hy. Gramann. licre, in the place of his birth he rtceived his education, principally a tbe hapds of his now aged father. }[ere he received bis religious training under tb guidance of Ft. Lohmann of blessed memory. Here he made his firs adventures in the business world. His lat yearg were spent as a travel- ing aiesmau for the Win. Brockmey- er Cigar Co. of St. Louis, and though !this work kept him away from home tb major part of his time. yet the parental roof was ever his home. The week end and beginning was spent at hame ith his parenr.s practically without fail. These aged parents that in the course of the past few years have been frequented by numerous vicissitudes will undoubtedly receive the brunt of the blow, as to them he was ever  dutiful son a pillar of sup- *orL The floral offerings, quite profuse and elaborate, several of which hav- ing been sent by his employer and business associates, others coming from various places, bespoke'his pop- ularity and amiability. Others sent spiritual bouquets and numerous were the letters of eon' lence. Among the later was one from Itis Grace Bishop Althoff, a former peil of the aged father, that was especial- ly prized and appreciated, The obsequies on Friday, the 27th, consisting of a Solemn Requiem High Mass with Fr. Gillen our pastor as celebrant, and Rev. Loeker, our former assistant pastor, now of E. St. Louis, as deacon and ReD. Weg- matin of Breese as sub-deacon, were mosz solemn. ReD. Dieterich of Trenton acted as Master of Ceremon- ies and the .sanctuary was further graced by the presence therein of ReD. Hilgenberg of Beckemeyer and ReD. Eppmann of Germantown. In his sermon the ReD. Pastor placed special emphasis on that part of the fourth commandment promising tem- poral blessings to the observer, Since the deceased had not,.to all appear- ances, received those temporal bless- ings, he assured the sorrowing rel- atives that they might expect for him a more bounteous eternal reward. He also made reference to a visit that deceased had made to him in his rec- tory at Cairo several weeks ago, Iwhen he had beheld in his visitor a [young man of apparent good health [with the bloom of youth on his [cheeks, but that he had not beheld [the Angel of Death in his company. .That with all this Angel of Death had nevertheless conferred many bless- ings upon him in his last hours. That not least among these blessings was the good fortune to lave his father and mother as well as sisters and brothers at his bedside praying for him in his last agony and to have the consolations of that other moth- er, the church to minister to his last [neighborhood. I Among those to mourn his loss are the aged parents Mr. and Mrs. Hy. Gramann, Caeclia, wife of Prof Koch, of Bartelso und family, Prof. An- thony Gramann and family, Theresia wife of Mr. Frank Zurliene, and fam- ily, of Aviston; Benedict Gramann and family of Beardstown, Ill., Mrs. Mary Barker of Whitehall, N. Y. who owing to illness was unable to at- tend, Hendrina, wife of Mr. John Kellett of Gillespie, Ill., and family, Miss Anna Gramann of St. Louis; Prof. Fred Gramann, Pio Nono Col- lege, St. Francis, Wis., Arnold Gra- mann and family of Beardstown, Ill., Miss Rosa Gramann, who resides with her parents ,and many other relatives and friends. We extend to these our sincerest sympathy and close with the prayer Requieseeant in peace. A Friend. FARM BUREAU Twenty Farmers Attend Centralia Field Meeting Twenty busy farmers left their fields last Tuesday, April 20 to at- tend the meeting at the Centralia H(:.ian fly experiment field to see what would have happened if all wheat had been sown early last fall. At the Centralia field, which is main- rained by the government about one milc wes of Contrails in this coun- ty, plots side by side were sown to wheat of the same variety on the foL lowing dates: September 1 Septenber 15 September 21 September 26 October 2 ' October 6 October 10 October 15 October 20 The wheat sown OCtober 2, 6, 10 and 15 looks the best at this time, l altho that sown October 2 has a slight infestation of Hessian fly, lwhile that sown later has none. The !plots sown on September 1, Septem- I ber 15 and September 21 are almost bare due to tha killing of the wheat by the Hessian fly. The significant fact about the whole field is that the wheat sown on October 2 is actually better than that so' ,z on September 26. This shows that if farmers had sown their wheat starting about Sep- tember 20, they wouId not have as good wheat prospects as they have , now and would be raising a big crop of Hessian fly in addition. 26 Varieties Being Tried Out Another interesting and entirely separate feature about the Centralia field is the wheat variety test and the search for a variety that will re- sist the attacks of the Hessian fly. Twenty six different varieties are be- ing tried out for this ,purpose. One drill width of each variety was sown September 23 and a second drill width alongside of the first was sown after the fly free date. This later sowing should have been made October 6 but due to the heavy rains 9 of the later sowings in the variety test were rade October 12 and 17 of them were made October 20. It is interesting to note in con- nection with this variety test that all of the early sowngs show some fly damage but not to the same extent. This means that some varieties are probably nr damaged as much by Hessian fly as others. However, so far no wriety has Tet,been found that is fly resistant.
