"This business of road building and
maintenance is by no means a simple
y-k." said Mr. Hrdson. "To anjone
who has not had experience it mav
mm easy enough to build a road. Itut
th great question is, 'What kind of
a road should be built?' There are
a hundred and one different opinions
oi this subject. The best engineers
ard contractors disagree. As far as
I know there is only one place in the
I nded States where some definite
Plan of road making lias been a.lopted.
That is
Wayne County, .Mich.,
where the roads are made of concr?te.

owners along the Clark Lane
which runs from .Moore's Station due
east from Columbia, hae raised ?jni)ii
for improving this road. There has
liesn some opposition, on the part of
other residents of the district to the
improving of this road. It is true
that one of the road commissioners.

Conlev owns several tracks of

long this road however the fact
that there are coal mines situated
along it, and that it is a much more
direct route to Columbia for resi

rants its improvement.
"We hae a good start on making
the road' now. We started about two
montbs ago with two gangs of men.
We now have five gangs, in all about
seventy-live men working. We have

Last Year.
YIELD PER ACRE LESS
But Increased Acreage Brings
Total Crop up to Over
production. A quarter of a million bushels of
wheat were marketed in Boone
County last year, is the opinion of J.
M. Ilaker, superintendent of the Boone
County Milling and Elevator Company.
"While the acreage last year was
larger, the yield per acre was less.
The yield as a whole was about the
same as other years."' says Mr. Baker.
One hundred thousand bushels of
wheat were marketed in Columbia ac
cording to .Mr. Baker. Some of this,
howevei, was shipped in from outside
the county. About twenty thousand
bushels were brought in over the
Missouri, Kansas and Texas from the
bottom lands. Considerable wheat was
also marketed at Ashland and Roche
port, where there are mills. There
is an elevator at Rocheport.
"Red Cross. Fultzo and Fultzo-.Med-iterranean
are the varieties of wheat
grown mostly in Boone County," says
Mr. Baker. "It is found that the red
tort winter wheat is better for all pur
poses. It is generally worth more
on the St. Louis market than the hard
wheat, although there are times when
the reverse is true. The average
yield in this county is from 13 to 20
bushels an acre. Last year a good
many acres of wheat were not har
vested on account of the poor quality.
This brought down the average yield
obout S or .t bushels.
.Much wheat is being sown this fall
in Boone County and some believe
that the number of acres planted will
exceed that of previous years.
