T

he helmets have been buckled, the pads strapped on, and the cleats tied, which can only mean one thing: the high school football season has arrived. In America’s Hometown, Hannibal has consistency on its side and tradition unlike many others. Head coach Mark St. Clair enters the 16th season with only one of the previous 15 campaigns ending with more losses than wins. The Pirate backfield is sure to be their bread and butter this fall thanks to the veteran leadership of Caleb Bieniek and Dalton Powell. And, you can always count on a

SPORTS stingy defense capable of shutting down any opponent. The schedule also has plenty of intrigue with Quincy Notre Dame and Quincy High School on the docket in the season’s first two weeks. Monroe City turned back the clock in 2011, providing fans with a brief glimpse of the glory days. The Panthers knocked off the top ranked team in Class 2—Centralia—in the playoffs, and this year’s group is hopeful of building off that momentum. The offense is led by running backs Blake Grice and Tyler Hetheriton as well as first-year starting quarterback Grant O’Bryan. Head coach Tony DeGrave is sure to have his defense ready, as well, with their attacking approach that humbled several foes last fall. Can Monroe City take the next step in 2012? The safe bet is yes. Strides were taken in Palmyra last season under first-year head coach Kevin Miles. Now, the task at hand is to take it to the next level this season. The senior class is stacked with more than a dozen veteran players ready to make their impacts felt, including a senior-led backfield—quarterback Cameron Nutt and running back Dilan Parrish. The Panthers should be able to

score, putting the onus on the defense, which is sure to come in to form with a steady stream of experienced individuals. Miles knew there would be bumps and bruises in his first season but feels his squad is set for a breakthrough in the months to come. It’s no secret that Mark Twain took a bit of a step back last fall in winning only two games. How do you remedy the situation? Call on 10 seniors to carry the load. Tigers head coach Matt Hudson is blessed with a hungry bunch who took their lumps and has no plans of a repeat. Kacey Simmons returns at quarterback and bruising fullback Nick Nesbitt will earn the bulk of the workload in the Tigers running game. The key lies on defense. If Mark Twain can hold its end defensively, they could be playoff bound for the third time in the last four seasons. Q

Health & Fitness Free Prostate Cancer Screenings at James E. Cary Cancer Center SEPTEMBER 17 & 19

by Robin Doyle

F

ree prostate cancer screenings will be available on September 17 and 19 from 6 to 8:30 pm at the James E. Cary Cancer Center in Hannibal. Reservations are required and may be made by calling 573-406-1642. Physicians and nurses from the James E. Cary Cancer Center, Hannibal Clinic and Hannibal Regional Medical Group have volunteered to provide these screenings at no charge for our community. The screening will include both a digital rectal examination (DRE) and a prostate specific antigen (PSA) blood test. The two tests together can often find cancer before it becomes symptomatic, leading to earlier treatments and better outcomes. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. It is estimated that more than 240,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2012. One in six men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and one man out of 36 will die from prostate cancer. Men ages 50-80 with no prior history of prostate cancer or treatment of prostate cancer are recommended to get screened. Some of the risk factors for prostate cancer include: Age: Beginning at age 50, there is a rapid increase in incidence of prostate cancer. Out of every three men diagnosed with prostate cancer, two are over age 65. Race: Beginning at age 40, prostate cancer is more prevalent among AfricanAmerican men. Not only is an African-American man more likely to have prostate cancer, but they are twice as likely to die from it. Family history: Our physicians recommend men with a family history of prostate cancer receive a screening on an annual basis, beginning at age 40. For more information, call 573-406-1642 or visit carycancercenter.org/prostate. Q

Discover Protecting the Rights of Every Child

R

ight here in our community, abused and neglected children live in the shadows of our lives. According to the Missouri Department of Social Services, as of December 31, 2010, 10,174 children in our state were placed in Children’s Division custody. More specifically, in the 10th Judicial Circuit, serving Marion, Monroe, and Ralls counties, 119 children were placed in Children’s Division custody and 549 child abuse and neglect incidents were reported in Fiscal Year 2011 (Missouri Dept. of Social Service Children’s Division Annual Report FY 2011). An intense need exists in an inundated system for protecting the rights of every child. A child might not always be able to defend his or her own rights, but a CASA volunteer can. CASA is a national nonprofit organization which trains and supports volunteers—people like you and me—to speak and act as advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children. They are trained to

work within the child welfare and family court systems and are appointed by judges to individual cases. With the help of a CASA volunteer, a child is half as likely to languish in the foster care system, and that much more likely to find a safe and permanent home (National CASA, www.nationalcasa.org). Here, in the 10th Judicial Circuit, I have observed the transformative effects a CASA volunteer can have on a child. We are dedicated to ensuring that every child in the foster care and child welfare system in our service area has a qualified CASA volunteer considering and fighting for their best interests. To do this, we need your help! If you are looking for a challenging but life-altering volunteer experience that will let you make a real difference in a child’s life, please consider becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate. We look forward to helping you serve! Q


Lessons Learned

T

hose of you who have school-age children who aren’t home-schooled are probably aware that school is back in session. The chaos of summer vacation has drawn to a close. Now pause for a moment and think what a workload your child or children are. Summer is a friendly reminder for people with school-age children. If you multiply your child by many, and then sprinkle in a vast assortment of personalities and a little dysfunction, you are left with what a school teacher contends with on a daily basis. In my opinion educators are unsung heroes of our society. Teachers do with hundreds of children what we as parents struggle to do with a few. Sometimes they do the impossible. They actually teach our children. I have heard a few people express that they hated school and thought it to be a waste of time. Well, it was never a waste of time. I know that they all can read and write. They can certainly do basic math, because they always keep a close eye on their paychecks. Those skills were learned, more often than not, at the hands of a teacher. If teachers were not anything to boast about, I wouldn’t be writing this article, and you certainly wouldn’t be able to read it. I do have a passion for teachers and educators in general. I had two older sisters who dedicated their lives to teaching children. It is a thankless job. People never see teachers grading papers and drafting lesson plans at 1:00 am. People never see the concerned phone calls to parents or the private talks with children who are seeking help or some quality adult viewpoints. Children often talk to teachers because they feel that they can trust them. Some children have nowhere else to turn. Others enjoy teachers’ perspectives because they are considered neutral ground and will respond with an honest opinion. Many friendships are formed between educators and children that last a lifetime. The impacts that people in the educational system make are far-reaching and often life-changing. I think back on all of my teachers from kindergarten forward with adoration and fondness. I can remember all of my elementary teachers by name and most of them by face. I can’t remember half of my high school graduating class, but the teachers I remember. I remember them because they changed my life. Some teachers stuck with the curriculum like glue. They almost seemed robotic, if not drill sergeant-like. Some were very laid back and made learning fun. Learning was fun when it was interesting. Regardless of the approach taken, I still learned. I learned even when I thought I was learning nothing and believed the lesson was pointless. One thing is certain, and that is it takes a special person to be an educator. The amount of dedication both on and off of the clock is immense. The patience teachers have is on a scale that can’t be measured. I know this because I was never choked to death by any of mine. I know the thought had to cross their minds. I certainly did everything in my power to achieve that result. I reflect back on English class many years ago. We had a young By Hick Finn

teacher who had only been in the high school for a couple of years. She was a great teacher. She made class fun. But, like any other teenage boy, my mind would drift. She would do interesting things like pass out newspapers for us to review. She was trying to teach us that English was used daily in publications. I took the opportunity to write funny captions on every single picture I encountered. She must have admired my diligence, because she walked straight to my desk. She picked up the newspaper and muffled a laugh. She gave me a stern look and told me to go out in the hall. Anyone familiar with the local school system of that era knows that a trip to the hall meant a referral to the front office. I waited in the hall for the inevitable. She entered the hall and asked me where I learned to do funny captioning of pictures. I told her it is something I always did at home to aggravate my parents. I was kind of like the newspaper vandal at my house. She looked me square in the eye and handed me a stack of pictures. She said, “Go back to your desk and caption these pictures for the yearbook.” I did as she asked, and after class she praised my efforts. That is the awesome thing about teachers. Many times they teach you lessons that are never in any book, lesson plan or curriculum. She could have sent me to the office, no questions asked. I certainly had that coming. Somehow she knew by looking at my picture-captioning that I had some hidden talent. I think she thought by letting me caption the yearbook pictures I could openly express it and share it with my peers for the first time in my life. I honestly believe after reviewing that “incident,” for lack of a better word, that I was taught that I had some kind of a talent. I didn’t even realize I had any interest in writing or entertaining people. I didn’t even know back then that writing was a talent. All I knew was that I did something out-of-bounds from a school perspective, and then I received praise for it. I was taught it was okay sometimes to think “outside the box.” I believe that is the day that everything that grew into “Hick Finn” was initially formed. The seed was planted. I would like to personally thank JoAnn Bringer for the lesson. You were awesome, and as I have mentioned to you in our communications over the years, I know you regret not giving me an “A,” now don’t you? A few years ago Mrs. “B.” contacted me by email when she finally learned who “Hick Finn” really was. It was at that time I shared with her how much a part she had played in my writing career. She then told me that if she had not retired, I would be invited to speak to her creative writing class. Those words not only further encouraged me, but coming from her it was like my version of winning the Nobel Prize in literature. I guess teachers never really retire or stop encouraging people to excel. They just can’t seem to help themselves. We have many unsung American heroes. I think of police, firefighters, EMS personnel, doctors, nurses, and definitely educators. Good luck to all of those back in school. Enjoy your time, and know that some lessons learned will last a lifetime. Take time to thank a teacher. I did! Q Hannibal Magazine September 2012

The Stillwell Murder— Hannibal’s Most Scandalous Crime By Ken and Lisa Marks

R

ecently, the Hannibal History Museum received a generous donation of books and ephemera related to Hannibal’s history. Included in the group was a very special book: The Stillwell Murder or A Society Crime by Minnie T. Dawson. When it was published in 1908, this small hardback book was considered nearly as “scandalous” as the crime, investigation and trial had been 20 years earlier. In the book’s preface, Dawson explained: In presenting this work it may displease some critics that I should devote my humble efforts to portraying such a hideous crime. It is not my desire to degrade the tastes of the public or give them a distorted view of Society. I believe in this there is a sermon—a warning… Members of the Stillwell family, who still lived in Hannibal when the book was released, did their best to stop the circulation

of the book, buying up all the copies es they could find so that they might be destroyed. Only a few copies of this book survive today, and the Museum is grateful to have such a rare piece of Hannibal’s history in its collection. The Stillwell Murder was certainly the “crime of the century” in Hannibal and, even by today’s standards, is a remarkable story. On Saturday night, December 29, 1888, Captain William A. Munger and his wife, Anna, hosted a card party at their home, located at 207 North Fifth Street in Hannibal (now known as LaBinnah Bistro). Among the guests in attendance were Amos J. Stillwell, his wife Fannie, and several other notable Hannibalians, including the physician Dr. Joseph C. Hearne. The group gathered

DISCOVER and played Euchre, and Fannie Stillwell was awarded first prize. Making his fortune first in the pork packing industry and later as president of First National Bank of Hannibal, president of Hannibal Lumber Company, and operator of one of the largest ice and cold storage businesses in the area, 57-year-old Amos Stillwell had become one of the wealthiest and most respected citizens in Marion County. Fannie, 20 years his junior, was Amos’ second wife; his first wife, Mary, had died in 1868. Fannie, born and raised in Kentucky, was a beautiful girl with dark hair and a fair complexion. It was said that she was well educated, an accomplished musician, and, being a brilliant conversationalist, could “fascinate” when she chose. Amos and Fannie had three children together and lived only two blocks from Capt. Munger in a large, impressive home near the northwest corner of South Fifth and Church Streets. It had been rumored around town that for some time there had been trouble at the Stillwell Mansion; tension was sensed between Amos and Fannie. Just days before the card party, the gossip around Hannibal was that the couple had recently argued violently at the breakfast table, with Fannie finally throwing a

28

September 2012 Hannibal Magazine

coffee cup at her husband, narrowly missing him. However, at the Munger home that night, the couple seemed to be completely reconciled, with Amos praising his wife’s dress which, according to the other guests at the card party, appeared to please her greatly. Shortly before midnight, the card party broke up and Amos and Fannie Stillwell walked the two blocks south to their home. Their mansion housed a large room on the second floor that was used as the family’s bedroom, featuring two beds, one for the children and one for the couple. On that night, the Stillwell’s eldest daughter, Mary, whom the family called Mollie, was visiting relatives across the river in Quincy, Illinois. The other two children, Harold and Erle, were sleeping in one of the two beds; they were being cared for by the Stillwell’s servants, Lizzie and Josie, while Amos and Fannie attended the card party. Fannie was the first to retire to the bedroom, going upstairs to check on the children. Amos lingered downstairs to douse the gas lights and lock the front door. Fannie crawled into the children’s bed to kiss them goodnight and decided to curl up and sleep with them; this left Amos to sleep alone in the other bed. At approximately 1:30am, Fannie was awakened by the sound of her husband’s voice. As he rolled over in bed, he said, “Fannie,


is that you?� Fannie then saw a figure crouched at the foot of her husband’s bed, and as Amos spoke, the attacker lunged. Gleaming in the moonlight, Fannie could make out the shape of a two-edged axe in the intruder’s hands. She then recalled hearing a whirring noise and the thud of the axe’s blade as it struck her husband’s head. She did not cry out; she simply hid under the covers, and for a time, lost consciousness. When she finally came to, she climbed out of the children’s bed, lit the gas lamp in the room, and discovered her husband’s body with a large gash across his face. Without a sound, she grabbed one of the boys and went in to the servants’ room. There, she told Josie to light the gas and Lizzie to bring the other child into their chamber, saying, “Mr. Stillwell’s been murdered by a burglar, and I don’t want the children to see him.� The children were carried into the servants’ room while they were still asleep, as they had also slept through the attack on their father. Once the children were secure in the servants’ quarters, Fannie then ran down the stairs, barefoot and in her nightgown, and began to run up and down Fifth Street, pounding on neighbors’ doors and calling for help. She was able to finally rouse her neighbor Dr. Allen, saying, “Oh, doctor, Mr. Stillwell has been murdered by a burglar, and is lying in a pool of his own blood.� Dr. Allen told Fannie that as soon as he and his wife were dressed they would come immediately to her aid. Apparently, after talking with Dr. Allen, Fannie must have been in a state of shock; the Hannibal jail and police station, located at

the southwest corner of Fourth and Church Streets, was less than one block away from the Stillwell Mansion but Fannie did not think to go down the street to the station and notify the police of the crime. Instead, she returned to her home to await Dr. Allen’s arrival, went upstairs to the bedroom where her husband lay mortally wounded, and began to clean up the blood. Dr. Allen arrived, and shortly another neighbor, Dr. Gleason, joined him in examining the body. The wound from the axe had left a gash more than four inches long on the left side of the head. It had entered near the cheekbone, eliminated the left earlobe, severed the carotid artery and badly damaged the spinal cord. Amos had died instantaneously. When examining the crime scene, it appeared to the two doctors that the body must have been moved slightly; the victim’s feet were hanging off the bed, as if the body were about to kneel in prayer, and the blood that had saturated the mattress and dripped to the floor below had somehow not stained the victim’s nightshirt. It seemed as if the body had been rolled over away from the blood into this unnatural position. The doctors also took note that there were several chairs pushed up against the bed where the children had been sleeping, with pillows stacked high on the seat of each chair. When questioned about it later, first Fannie said she’d stacked the pillows to form a barrier between the children and their father so that they would not be able to see his body. (Later, her story changed; she was quoted as saying that before she went to sleep that night, she

DISCOVER had pushed the chairs and pillows against the mattress to prevent the children from falling out of bed.) After Drs. Allen and Gleason concluded their examination, the police were finally summoned. Meanwhile, Fannie called out for Dr. Hearne, the family physician, and then promptly fainted. Dr. Hearne arrived at the Stillwell Mansion at approximately the same time as the police and, after reviving Fannie, asked the police not to interview her as she was distraught and in shock. “That lady,” Dr. Hearne was quoted as saying, “could not be examined. Her mental condition would not permit it.” The doctor feared that at any moment Fannie might faint from the stress. The police concurred and did not attempt to question Fannie at that time. It would be five days before Dr. Hearne agreed to allow the coroner’s jury to get a statement from Fannie, and then only if the jury would allow Dr. Hearne to remain in attendance. Eventually the newly-elected and inexperienced coroner for Marion County, Wallace Armour, arrived at the crime scene. Armour, according to testimony from witnesses, entered the bedroom and made a hasty examination, soon allowing the body to be removed. Therefore, before dawn, before sunlight might aid investigators, and just a few hours after the murder, all evidence of the crime had been removed and all traces of the violence cleaned away. Initially, the police agreed with Fannie’s assumption that the intruder was a burglar intent on stealing money from Amos Stillwell. However, if someone had planned to burgle the mansion, they were not successful in their attempt: the family’s silverware, which was always kept in a bag on the mantle of the dining room, was left unmolested; Amos Stillwell’s watch was found where it was normally kept; and some silver was still to be found in the pocket of Amos’ trousers. Money was found scattered in the back yard totaling approximately $25, but why the burglar would be so careless as to drop this money was not known. Amos Stillwell was laid to rest on December 31, 1888, and interred at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, just south of Hannibal. At the center of the family burial plot was placed a very large block of stone reading simply “Stillwell,” and Amos was buried alongside his first wife, Mary. His headstone spoke nothing of the crime, listing only his name, birth date, and death date. Richard H. Stillwell, the son of Amos and Mary, offered a ten thousand dollar reward for the arrest and conviction of the person or persons guilty of the murder, or for information that would lead to such an arrest or conviction. He also hired two detectives of the Pinkerton Detective Agency to investigate the crime. After about three months, the Pinkerton detectives told Richard that they had no reason to think they’d be able to solve the crime and abandoned their investigation. No other arrests were made and the case grew cold. Exactly one year after the murder of Amos Stillwell, on December 28, 1889, Dr. Joseph Hearne and Fannie Stillwell were married. The ceremony took place at 4 o’clock in the front parlor of the residence of the bride, the Stillwell Mansion. This, of course, was

30

September 2012 Hannibal Magazine

the exact same room that only one year before had housed the body of Amos Stillwell during his funeral service. News of the wedding caused a great sensation in Hannibal. As Dr. and Mrs. Hearne boarded the train at Hannibal’s Union Depot to begin their honeymoon, a mob of angry Hannibalians gathered at the platform. Many insulting remarks were thrown at the departing couple, with some in the crowd shouting, “Fannie, is that you?” Fearing persecution (and possible prosecution), Dr. Hearne and Fannie did not return to Hannibal after their honeymoon in Florida. They traveled around the country and eventually made their new residence in Los Angeles, California. Six years later, in May of 1895, Dr. Hearne and Fannie were spotted while visiting the residence of W. T. Perkins in Palmyra. Their reason for returning to Missouri and visiting the Perkins home in Palmyra is unknown. Soon, the police arrived at the Perkins home and both Dr. Hearne and Fannie were arrested for the

murder of Amos J. Stillwell. It was decided that Dr. Hearne would be the first to stand trial. Because they did not believe they could find an impartial jury in Hannibal, the trial was moved 30 miles south to Bowling Green, Missouri. However, even in Bowling Green there was trouble with the jury; at one point, five members of the jury were dismissed after it was learned that they had visited the jail and talked with the defendants. Apparently, the sheriff enjoyed satisfying curiosity seekers by introducing them to the celebrity couple, including potential jury-members. The trial began on December 11, 1895. After a lengthy trial and much testimony, Dr. Hearne was found not guilty and acquitted of the murder. The jury later stated that they believed the state prosecutors had “failed materially in making out a case.” While the State had strong circumstantial evidence, the judge had not allowed the prosecutors to admit as evidence damaging testimony about the relationship between Dr. Hearne and Fannie prior to Amos’ death,


testimony that alleged the couple had been intimate and that Dr. Hearne had been quoted as saying he planned to marry Fannie and would kill Amos Stillwell if he tried to stand in their way. As it was well known that the prosecution’s evidence against Fannie was the same as that of Dr. Hearne, the grand jury had no reason to pursue a trial against Fannie, and she was released from jail in 1896. Thus, the Stillwell Murder is still, and may forever remain, unsolved. The Stillwell Mansion on South Fifth Street was eventually demolished and today the site is now the home of the F&M Bank parking lot. Incidentally, four years prior to Amos Stillwell’s death, in 1884, the extensive work titled History of Marion County, Missouri by R. I. Holcombe was published. In the character sketch Holcombe produced of Amos. J. Stillwell, he said, “[Stillwell] is one of Hannibal’s most energetic citizens and one of Marion County’s wealthiest men.” Of Dr. Joseph C. Hearne, A.M., M.D., Holcombe writes, “Dr. Hearne, though young in years, has a State [sic] reputation as a physician… His position in life is to be envied and his future is full of promise.” Q Ken and Lisa Marks are the curators of the Hannibal History Museum, 217 N.

Month. This is an unusual archaeology dig in that children 10 years old or older may come and learn about archaeology on an actual site, while working with a professional archaeologist. They must be accompanied by an adult (one child–one adult, two children–two adults, etc.). Over the past six years, several extended families have come and helped. Volunteers have come from as far away as Chicago, Texas and Kansas City. The Mark Twain Park and Campground is nearby. Only 20 diggers are allowed on the site each Saturday. Some volunteers come for one day, some for each Saturday. They need to bring lunch and water. All tools are furnished. This is the sixth year of excavating parts of the farmstead written about by Mark Twain in his autobiography. In order to save as much information as possible, each area is excavated before rebuilding. An open house will be held on September 1

Quincy Museum Hosts 17th Annual Folk Life Festival SEPTEMBER 22

by Barbara Wilkinson

T

he Quincy Museum at 1601 Maine Street invites you to travel back in time by spending an afternoon at the always popular Folk Life Festival. Visitors to the grounds of the museum will have the chance to experience the crafts and lifestyles of yesterday with a wide variety of demonstrations, exhibits, food and games. The Folk Life Festival will be held on Saturday, September 22 from noon to 5 PM. Admission at the gate is only $1 and includes admission to the activities on the grounds as well as to the Quincy Museum. Admission for members of the museum is free. Guests will enjoy the opportunity to spend an early autumn afternoon wandering over the spacious grounds of the museum while journeying back in time. Some of the demonstrators who will be on hand to show off their talents will be wood carver Donald Raines, weaver Matthew Mittelstaedt and Kae Blecha who will demonstrate the fine art of tatting. The Quincy Senior Center Craft Workshop will have Catherine Hayden with her basketry. Mom-n-Me Crafts will be on hand with hand-made jewelry and flowers. Also on hand will be long-time favorite Ohio Street Originals with their beautiful willow furniture and floral designs and Arvilla Heinecke from Taylor, Missouri, with her hand-made metal art. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit with the costumed ladies hard at work in the kitchen of the museum creating wonderful jams and jellies. Guests who arrive at the right time may be able to sample and purchase their creations slathered on fluffy home-made biscuits. Native American life will be well represented with members

of the Mississippi Valley Archaeological Society showing off their wonderful collections of Native American artifacts on the porch. Also on display will be a collection of African artifacts belonging to Joseph Newkirk. For those of you looking for something a bit more modern, the Mississippi Thespians, the youngest Civil War re-enactors in the United States will set up a tent and will perform interpretations of life during the Civil War. Jane and Paul Moody will share their Dick and Jane School Readers display and will even have some books for sale at the event. Children and adults who are children at heart are invited to participate in a variety of oldfashioned children’s games including cup-and-ball, nine-pins, crafts and other games. There are always plenty of surprises on hand for your amusement and enjoyment. Bring your appetite! Booths and tents on the grounds feature plenty of good things to eat. On hand for purchase will be oldfashioned bottled soda, caramel apples and old-fashioned hard candy, baked goods, bratwurst, hot dogs, and of course, our always popular buffalo barbeque sandwiches. For the first time, we will offer the delicious fresh Kettle corn made by Ray and Beulah Muegge. As always, we will give visitors the opportunity to purchase everything from pumpkins, mums, and other harvest produce to old-fashioned wooden toys and games and other fun items with an old-fashioned flair. The Quincy Museum’s Folk Life Festival is funded in part by the Illinois Arts Council and the business and individual members of the Quincy Society of Fine Arts. For more information, contact the Quincy Museum at 224-7669. Q
