Merchants Prqmrlnp for the Christ
mas ikisiness Xow. j
With thirty-five days until Christ
mas, thirty of these "buying days"
Columbia merchants are getting in
their holiday goods and planning for
the increased buying. Some Christ
mas purchases have already been
made by persons wishing to select
from an unpicked stock. The rush
starts about December 15.
Do Columbia people buy early? A
merchant whose trade is largely from
the student body, says most of his
selling is over by the time the school
holidays begin. It starts immediately
after the Kansas game. "A student
usually buys for Christmas something
that spells 'Missouri'."
A jeweler anticipates his best sea
son in a nine-years' location here.
"My experience with student buy
ers," said he. "has been that the stu
dent waits till ready to go home, gets
his balance from the bank, deducts

Women are earlier buyers than

ASKS ABOUT HOG CHOLERA
State Veterinarian Would Learn of
Disease Prevention Flan.
A letter is being sent to all the
hog exhibitors at the State Fair in
Sedalia by Dr. Samuel Sheldon, state
veterinarian, asking them if any
cholera has developed among the hogs
ther exhibited. Mr. Sheldon said:
"In past years there has always
been more or less cholera developed
among the hogs exhibited. This year
the Fair Board went to a good deal
of extra expense to carry out sugges
tions made by this office, for the pre
vention of hog cholera among the
stock exhibited. If the preventive
measures taken were successful this
year we will know better how to
handle the work in the future."

A genuine thrill was given the
rooters yesterday at football prac
tice, when Shepard booted a perfect
drop-kick from the 48-yard line in
scrimmage with the freshmen. No
such kick bad been seen on Rollins
Field for many years. Visions of a
rival to Pumpelly, the famous Yale
kicker, are in the rooters' minds as
The Varsity had worked the ball to
the center of the field and when Shep
ard dropped back everyone thought
he was going to punt Instead he
lifted the oval over the bar with a
terrific drive. Then he moved for
ward ten yards and practiced for
about a half an hour. His kicks were
fairly successful, considering the
fact that a scrub line was working
with him a line that failed to hold
most of the time.
A team with a man on it who can
drop-kick from the J 0-yard line is
dangerous, no matter how good the
opposition is, and if Missouri should
run up against a stonewall defense
next Saturday there still would be a
chance to win. Although Shepard has
not shown himself a consistent kicker
so far this season, he is improving
all the time and lately he has been
spending much time practicing.
The freshmen were told to try the
forward pass all the time and the
Tigers were instructed to break it up
if possible. Although Kansas has
used very few forward passes this
year the coaches are afraid that they
have been holding them out for the
Missouri game. So far this season
Kansas has relied on straight football
altogether and, according to Kansas
newspapers, they have gotten away
with only one successful forward pass
in all their games. Kansas' poor
showing, however, has led Missouri
coaches to believe that they are mak
ing radical changes in their style of
play, hoping to accomplish something.
Hence the forward pass drill.
Groves, the linesman who has been
out since the Drake game with a
sprained ankle, has been at practice
this week. Although he is still limb
ing, he probably will be in shape for
the Kansas game. Dunckle, whoH
broke his shoulder in the Washington
game, says that he can arrange to
play Saturday if he is needed.
College of Agriculture JTrJesExperi-
ment to IniuroTeDraina?e.
Most of the Northeast Missouri
prairie soils are underlaid with an
impervious clay subsoil, according to
T. R. Douglass of the agronomy de
partment of the College of Agricul
ture. This layer of clay causes poor
drainage. Mr. Douglass has just re
turned from Shelbina, where he laid
out an experiment plot and dynamited
the soil in it.
"The dynamiting opens up holes,
loosens the subsoil and allows better
drainage," he said.
Holes are dug 3 feet deep and 15
feet apart each way, with a soil auger
one and one-half inches in diameter.
One-half stick of dynmite is put in
each hole. It costs about 7 cents to
make one of these holes. Fruit trees
are sometimes planted in the blasted
