Fivej plain drunks got the usual
fines and costs In police court at
Mexico, according to the Evening
Post. None of them had any money,
so they all went to jail. We surmise
that "fancy" drunks in Mexico are
those who are able to pay their
fines and thus stay out of jail.

The young women or the Christian

come forth from other places, but the
startling fact about the decree at

it is said. " calls regularly upon a

Two million five hundred thousand
Red Cross seals will be placed on
letters and packages mailed in the
state of Missouri in the next six
weeks, if the expectations of the Mis
souri Association for the Relief and
Control of Tuberculosis are fulfilled.
The funds from their sale will be
used to fight the white plague.
Dr. Walter McNab Miller, secretary
of the Missouri association, whose of
fice is in the Miller Building at Broad
way and Eighth streets, has orders
for 1,000,000 seals to be sent to St.
Louis and 500,000 to Kansas City.
The other million will be sold
throughout the state. St Joseph has
already ordered 50,000 of this mil
lion. The state secretary is now
sending to every high school in towns
where the postoffice is of the first,
second or third class, two seals for
every pupil enrolled.
The Sale in Columbia.
Last year twenty-one seals were
sold in Columbia for every student
enrolled in the high school. These
seals are not all used by the high
school students, but are sent out on
this basis because the greater part
of the work of selling has been done
I by school pupils. By selling the
seals in this way a double service is
rendered the student is educated
along the line of preventing the
spread of tuberculosis and the work
being done by the state and local or
ganizations is aided.
Five hundred seals are being sent
to every county superintendent of
public schools, who will distribute
them among the rural schools in his
county for the pupils to sell.
All the seals ordered from the Na
tional Red Cross Society last year
were not sold but this year the state
society is much better organized than
before and the secretary is expecting
that all seals ordered will be sold.
The seals are sold for one cent
each. The selling of the 2,500,000
will net $25,000. Ten per cent, or
$2,500 of this money, will go to the
National Red Cross Society to pay
for the cost of .production and distri
bution.. Another 10 per cent goes to
the state association and the rest, or
SO per cent, is used in local work by
the society that sells the seals.
Purpose of the Red Cross.
The National Red Cross Society is
not affiliated with the Association
for the Relief and Control of Tuber
culosis. The Red Cross Society is
organized to render emergency as
sistance to the country in times of
great disasters, such as wars, floods
and great fires. It realizes that the
relief, control and preventing of tu
berculosis is an emergency work, so
it allows the sale of its seal, in the
form of a sticker, only by the As
sociation for the Relief and Control
of Tuberculosis, a few weeks before
and during the Christmas holidays.
It has no connection with " tag day
and has in times past requested that
it be made clear by those using
"tag day" that the Red Cross So
ciety had nothing to do with it.
The 'state organizations use their
10 per cent of this money to send
out literature and pay the expenses
of lecturers and organizers. The
state society is working with the ul
timate object in iew of a hospital in
etery county in this state, where
patients in the more advanced stages
of tuberculosis can be given relief
The local organizations through
out this state are at present using
their 80 per cent of this money in
educational work and to create a
sentiment in favor of the county
County Hospitals Needed.
The state has a sanitarium at
Mount Vernon, Mo., where those in
the first stages of the disease may be
treated, but this does not meet the
need of the county hospitals where
those in the more developed stages
would be given relief. With the coun
ty hospital the dispensary and vis
iting nurseries sure to come.
The Missouri State Nurses Asso
ciation has offered the free services
of two trained nurses as a prize to
the two counties outside of St. Louis,
Kansas City and St. Joseph which
sell the most Red Cross seals this
MARKETED IN CHINA
Wild Ginseng of Boone Coun
ty Is in Demand and
Price Is High.
USED IN MEDICINE
Orientals Also Substitute It
for Tobacco Cultivation
Boone County has one industry
the gathering of ginseng which finds
a market in far-away China. Mis
souri, is said to produce the best qual
ity of this product.
Ginseng is a highly valued medici
nal root found in the hills of Mis
souri, Arkansas, Tennessee and Ken
tucky. Boone County ginseng sells for $6
and $6.50 a pound. The Klass Com
mission Company of Columbia han
dles most of the product that is
shipped from Boone County. Accord
ing to P. M. Klass, of the local con
cern, the demand for the wild ginseng
is now greater than ever before and
the price has reached $7 a pound.
Because of the demand many are
raising cultivated ginseng. But the
cultivated variety is not as good as
In the early day wild ginseng was
far more plentiful than at present.
Patches of it covered the hills of Mis
"At that time," says Mr. Klass,
"there was not much demand for gin
seng and it sold from 25 to 50 cents a
pound. But after it became such a
commercial product the plant rapidly
disappeared. The root is the valu
able part, and when it is secured the
whole plant is killed. The first col
lectors had no thought of maintain
ing the supply. Just as the pioneer
hunter destroyed the buffalo until it
is now almost extinct, so did the
early settlers gather the wild gin
seng, without any thought of allowing
it to propagate further."
Ginseng is used in this country by
drug manufacturers in the prepara
tion of medicines. But, according to
Mr. Klass, the greatest demand comes
from China. The wealthy Chinese
.use it as we use chewipg tobacco.
They also make tea of the plant root.
The Chinese do not like the cultivated
variety because it has not the flavor
and strength of the wild.
According to Mr. Klass the Mis
souri ginseng has a bigger root than
that of Kentucky and Tennessee and
for this reason is worth about a dol
lar more a pound. The cultivated
ginseng sells on the market at about
$1.50 less than the wild.
