BANK'S NEW HOME
POOR STORIES HIGH?
Boone County National May
Furnish Columbia Another
ARE NOT IN A.HURRY
May Take Year Preparing for
Structure at Eighth and
A four-Btory building costing about
100.000 is what R. B. Price, president
of the Boone County National Bank,
is now considering as the new home
for the bank at Eighth street agl
Broadway. Mr. Price has not yet de
cided on the plans. Instead of a four
story building, which would be an up-to-date
office building as well, he may
build one for the bank only. How
ever he says it will be one of the best
bank buildings in the country.
"We do not wish to hurry the work,"
said Mr. Price. "We want to have
the most suitable plans possible. I
want to know myself exacUy what
kind of construction is best We have
not decided yet whether the building
will be of stone or not
"One cannot prepare for a work
fjike this before breakfast as somo
people1, seem to think. It probably
will be a year before our preparations
are completed. As soon as the way
is clear we shall tear down the build
ing now standing on the location."
Mr. Price explained that he wished
to complete the building himself. He
is taking special pride In the work.
"I want to see where every dollar is
going," he said.

Omar D. Gray, publisher of the Col

ences as chief clerk of the Missouri
House of Representatives back to his
paper, in the form of editorial cor
respondence. Mr. Gray writes that he almost fell
dead when he had to sign Warrant
No. 1, which called for $1317 to pay
a St Louis band for making the
music at the inauguration last week.
He had to put his name to a second
warrant or check of $834 for flowers
and decorations. He figures U takes
$2250 a day to run the legislature.
"But." he says, "it Is necessary."
"Hundreds of fine dresses were
ruined at the inauguration because of
crowding and squeezing," says Mr.
Gray. "Several of the women fainted,
but not a bottle of liquor could be
found In the crowd of two thousand

Roach and John T. Barker would

"Frank G. Harris Is one of the
strongest leaders In the House. His
ability was recognized when he was
made chairman of the Judlciary.Com
mittee. Boone County Democrats are
proud of him. He seldom speaks,

for he has something to say worth

J. A Stewart of Columbia, was ap
pointed as one of the members of a
committee to urge the passage of a

the expenditure of taxes in special
road districts where they are col
lected. J. A. Hudson of Columbia
presided over the meeting. Colum
bia, Centralia and Sturgeon are In
terested in this matter.
"The report In the Reoublican'dai-
lies, that a bill will be introduced
to do away with the bi-partisan capi

never pass if Introduced. This com

It is not buckwheat flour.
"Several years ago we used to
handle buckwheat flour la bulk." said
a Broadway grocer, "but it has beea,

People seem to be satisfied with the
pancake flours put up In packages.
It Is easier to prepare and those who
don't know the other kind think that
It is Just as good, but it Isn't" he said.
Other grocers say that there is no
demand for the flour and that it
doesn't pay to handle It
"There is no buckwheat raised in
this part of the country." according
to another grocer. "I have never seen
but one field of buckwheat la Boone
County- and that crop was a complete
failure. There is none raised here
now. Most of it is grown in the
northern states, and it may be had
from Chicago firms but I find It
doesn t pay to handle it"
One grocer claims to have pure
buckwheat flour which was shipped in
from Chicago. He says there are still
some who want the flour.
