The men there have been of such a
character, have had such attainments
and such experience as have com
mended them to the farmers of the
state. The result is that these men
are listened to and their advice is
sought, and the average Missouri far
mer is glad to avail himself of the
opportunity to take instruction and
advice from them, though only for
one short week.

forgot to put his name on the card.
The postal employees at Austin where
the card was sent were kind enough
to forward it to College Station where
the experiment station is located.
The student was careful about
typewriting his card and verbose in
thanking for the favor. But he failed
to give his name or address. The
post mark was the only indication
of where the letter was started.
Mr. Kemley sas many letters are
lost through similar jnistakes. In
one instance a merchant of Columbia

A "scoop" iu its first issue was the ,
achievement of fio Columbia Roomer,
a newspaper which made its first
appearance recently. It contained
the announcement or the death of
Mrs. G. C. nrondlieail a half a day
before the news appeared in any
"Parker. Sylvester & l'lackwood.
Publishers" have fultilled their
promise to have some good news,
some jokeg. and Incidentally boom
Columbia. Only the booming is, not
incidental. It is the avowed editorial
policy of the new paper to boost for
"Columbia, the gem of Missouri."
The I'ootner is a four-page two
column paper about six inches
square, and its public-spirited voting
owner.s feel sure that it contains
more of real interest than any other
paper of its size in Missouri. Per
haps, it like Columbia, will grow.
On the editorial page, beside the
column of editorials, there is an ar
ticle about Columbia's possibilities
for growth. There is a half-page of
telegraph news, another of jokes, and
the fourth page contains daily ISible
readings. There is no advertising
