TOO MUCH TROUBLE
Overburdened by Her Responsibili-
ties, a Sumter County Girl
Gave Up .. V, .- V
One of the saddest tragedies that
even took place in this county wash
that of the untimely end of Miss Ial Ial-lie
lie Ial-lie Hanson Wednesday of last week.
Miss Hanson was a .young- lady of f
about sixteen years living with her
father, Mr. C. A. Hanson, her broth. broth.-er,
er, broth.-er, who is a young man, and five
smaller children, at their home about
three or four miles west of Bushnell.
On last Wednesday morning she
put strichnine in an egg and ate the
egg in the presence of her younger
brothers and, sisters and then told
them she would soon be dead, that she
had jt&ken poison. She then started
from the kitchen to her room but
fell 1 on t the porchbetween the room
and kitchen, and before a doctor could
be called she was dead.
No one had, in the least suspected
that the girl was not hajipy. She had
been taking care of .her. little broth brothers
ers brothers and sisters and keeping house for
her father and brother since the death
of her mother last year. She gave
her whole time to the care of the lit little
tle little ones and the keeping of the home
fojr father and brother.
The funeral services were held
Thursday mornhigat Pleasant Hik
church, and a large number were
present to pay the last tribute of love
and affectio nto the unfortunate girl.
That the fair is appreciated by the
farmer, which it stimulates to great greater

Representative- Frank Clark has
introduced a bill in Congress to regu-,
late salutes in the army. Mr.' Clark's
bill requires soldiers to salute offic
ers of only their own organizations -we
presume by this he means those
of their own regiments. At present,
it is hardly possible for a private to
know all the officers of his own reg
iment by, sight, and it would be sev several
eral several times as much trouble for him to
pick out the number of the regimenv
on the officer's uniform aa. it would
be to go thru the simple movement
ofaising his hand in salute. Be Besides
sides Besides there are many times when the
number of the regiment can't be seen
at all; also, officers are constantly)be-
mg transferred from one regiment to
another, ; and often" days pass before
they can change the regimental num numbers
bers numbers on their uniforms. So, we think,
that Mr. Clark's! bill, if it becomes
law, would make more trouble to. the
private soldier than it would save
him. We generally back up ; Mr.
Clark's measures, as they are mostly
sensible and necessary, but we would
advise him not to press this one. We
never heard of a private soldier ob objecting
jecting objecting to salute his (officer, ; tho we
have sometimes felt sorry for an of officer
ficer officer walking along a street crowded
with soldiers and haying to return a
salute at every step because, tho'
hardly, anybody m civil life seems to
be aware of it, every officer in the
army, from the commanding general
down, has to punctiliously return a
private soldier's salute. 1
- Just why the public schools 'do not
teach ; punctuation, paragraphing,
capitalization and fiivision of words
is a mystery to usi but we doubt if
there has been a graduate of the
high schools of DeSoto county within
the1 past ten years who could write
a one-page letter with proper punc punctuation,
tuation, punctuation, capitalization, paragraphs
and division of words. Yet these are
important. Just one little comma cost
the United States two million dollars.

of duty, and before it could be cor corrected

$2,000,000 in custom revenues.-

made equally digestible and nourish

all Its defects, is not as bad as that
