excellent system of elementary and
high .schools. The University itself
also maintains a preparatory school.

streets. Its down town district is
home life and exercise. All these
elements must be considered. The
University of Missouri has attended
to them in no half hearted way. It
was byso doing that the great insti
tution was built up. But what has
it to offer the student?
Almost whatever line of work you
wish to take up. you may get your
noeds in education supplied at tho

The main campus is a beautiful place.
Tall elms arch over paths, and to the
of many years ago.
Around the quadrangle are the
main buildings of all the divisions
except that of the College of Agricul
ture. Academic Hall is the home of
the students in Arts and Science. It
is a, building of four floors surmount
ed by a tall dome out of the sight of
which the students say it is impos
sible to get while in the vicinity of
Columbia. In this building recita

B. degree. The home of the School
of Education and the Graduate
School are also in Academic Hall.
The School of Education maintains
two schools a preparatory school

product civil, electrical, mechanical
and chemical engineers. It is a
building of machinery, of steam
engines and of electrical apparatus.
It has an industrial air about it.

vantages of a laige city, yet it is so
Miiall that the students are thrown
much together. This contact of stu

element in education.
The University officially maintains

one for women. Read Hall is for the

are for the men. Besides these, the

week. The club has nearly GOO mem
bers. There are other boarding clubs

One of the most healthful signs in
connection with the University is the
number of men who work their way

One of the greatest helps to young
men at tho University in reducing
living expenses is the University
Dining Club, which furnishes table
board at cost to students.
About 450 men students are mem
bers and the total cost to each is
about $2..".0 a week. Each man pays
$2.". for service and other expenses
at the beginning of the year and also
pays about $1.7.". a week for actual
cost of food. About thirty-five stu
dents earn their board there by wait
ing on tables or washing dishes.
The dining club is run jointly by
the students and the University. It
is under the supervision of a dormi
tory board appointed by the Board of
Curators of the University. This
board appoints a general managed
who has charge of all the buying and
other business details. The mem
bers of the club elect a council of
students consisting of president,
ice-president and secretary, which
sets aside the amount to bo spent
each week and has charge of the
government. The general manager
servos on this board. The Univer
sity gets no income from the club;
it is run entirely on a cost basis
merely to pay its expenses.
The large dining room in Lathrop
Hall will seat about 430 persons,
,and the smaller one 130. The main
(room is wen lighted, containing
j about forty windows. Opening off
the dining room is a reading room
jwith a piano, newspaper files and
about thirty-five periodicals. The
subscriptions to these are paid by the
fines imposed on those who do not
pay their board on time. On the up
per lloor is a dancing room where
the members spend a social hour ev
Goods are bought in large quanti
ties at wholesale prices and this
greatly reduces the cost. The quan
tities used for one day for 430 are
as follows: 200 loaves of bread,
'.: 1-2 dozen eggs, IIS pounds of
.sugar. 30 packages of puffed wheat,
ll.S pounds of beef, 21 gallons of
milk for cooking, one bushel of meal
for conibread and 3 bushels of pota
toes. Accounts are kept of the
amounts used each day and these are
kept within the appropriation.
This is the menu for one day:
Ilreakfast. apple sauce, cream of
wiita:, fried potatoes, toast, coffee;
Dinner: roast beef, mashed potatoes,
li cawed macaroni, spring onions,
fruit salad; supper: fried eggs,

Experiments at M. U. Show Pi-olit in
Experiments at the Missouri Ex
periment Station on twenty-four
steers to find out the relative value
of feeding show that cattle fed with
shelled corn, cottonseed "meal, corn
silage and clover hay bring the feed
er the most profit.
Twenty-four steers were pur
chased at the Kansas City Stock
Yards last November at $3. S3 'a
hundredweight. The cattle were di
vided as tiniformally as possible into
four lots. Lot 1 was fed shelled
corn, linseed oil meal, corn silage
and clover hay; lot 2 was fed shelled
corn, cotton seed meal, corn silage !
and clover hay; lot IS was fed shelled!
coin, cold pressed cotton seed cake
and clover hay; and lot 4 was fed
shelled corn, corn silaire ami plnvpr
The steers were sold on the Chi
cago market April 23 at the follow
ing prices: lot I. $.N.:3; Jot 2. $8.50:
lot .!, $8.33; and lot 4, $S.23. The
shrinkage on the steels in the travel
to Chicago was: lot 1, 22.17 pounds
a steer; lot 2. 1S.1G; lot :i, 2C.33;
and lot 4, 1 1.02.
Assuming that corn sold for 60
cents a bushel; linseed oil $:;s.U0 a
ton; couonseed meal $30.23 ton;
cold pressed cottonseed meal $23.50
a ton; clover hay $10 ton and corn

the cattle was: lot 1 $C.!t4 a steer;
lot 2, $13,CC a steer; lot 3 $13.64;
and lot 4 $10.91.
The average weight of the steer
