" THE IJOOXE COU.NTV FAIK
' October 9, 10, 11 and 12 are the
days chosen for the Boone County
Fair. They are days of unusual im
portance to the citizens of Columbia,
Centralia and surrounding towns, as
well as to the farmers of this county.
An instructive and entertaining pro
gram has been arranged for the week
and the support of every Boone Coun
ty citizen is greatly needed and de
sired for the complete success of the
fair this extraordinary year.
The small grain and fruit crops are
exceptionally goo"d in most parts of
the Central "West and here corn of
the best grade may also be added to
the exhibits. More than valuable in
formation can be acquired at the
county fair. It is a meeting place for
city, town and rural folk; it brings
them together for a common purpose
and creates, through a better ac
quaintanceship with one another, a
better spirit of understanding and
co-operation between producers and
consumers, stock raisers and stock
dealers, country buyers and city buy
ers. During this year of 1917, when we
are at war with the mightiest military
nation in the world, it is also impera
tive that we learn from each other
the true condition of affairs in the
country so that our economic situa
tion may be fully appreciated and we
may thus realize the real meaning of
conservation, greater production, ju
dicious expenditures and complete
In line 'with the demonstrations
which have been held at county fairs
in other parts of the country, a mon
strous loyalty celebration will be held
during the week and the county is
urged to turn out en masse. This is
a part of our wartime, as well as our
annual local duty, to support and fur
ther the county fair. Hay every citi
zen do his bit!
The day of the unscrupulous rulers
has come, whether it be in a democ
racy or in an autocracy.

SURVEYING COUNTY SCHOOLS
Work Undertaken by State Teachers'
In the last session of the Missouri
General Assembly a suggestion was
made that a survey of the country
schools of Missouri bo undertaken.
The purpose was to have a concrete
statement from reliable sources as to
the physical condition of the country
schools, their organization and sup
port, the preparation of the teachers
in them, and the character and quali
ty of instruction.
The matter recieved favorable con
sideration from those to whom it was
proposed. After the session adjourned.
Governor Gardner ,wrote to Uel W.
Lamkin, state superintendent of
schools, suggesting that all the edu
cational interests in the state co
operate in making such a study and
invpstlirntlnn. and succestine further
that it would be well for the people of
Missouri to know just how efficient
their country school system is.
In accordance with this plan, the
Missouri State Teachers Association
appointed a committee consisting of
Uel W. Lamkin, chairman; W. K.
James of Andrew County; P. P. Lewis,
president of the State Board of Agri
culture; Lieutenant Governor Wallace
Crossley; George Melcher, Kansas
City; Superintendent Herbert Pryor of
Mexico, and Superintendent C. E.
Burton of Wayne County to have
charge of this work. They elected
A. G. Capps as sccretarv.
The association, together with the
state superintendent of schools, the
University and normal schools, col
leges of the Missouri College Union
and public school people generally
have undertaken the wokr, not with the
idea of proving any pet theory or of
finding out any one particular thing.
It is an Investigation by Missourians
of their own school system with the
idea of making the good better, and
of improving conditions where they
should be improved.

enrolled now, as compared to 1140 at
the corresponding time last year.

It is doubtful if putting dry corn
fodder into the silo will ever become
a general practice on account of the
large amount of water which Is re
quired to put it in proper condition.
On most farms it Is entirely out of
the question to consider putting the
dry corn into the silo because of not
having an abundant and convenient
water supply. The studies made at
the Missouri College of Agriculture
with different amounts of water show
that corn which has stood in the field
until it has thoroughly dried requires
about a ton- of water for each ton of
corn fodder. This amount of water
for each ton of corn fodder. This
amount of water gives the silage
about the normal composition found
when corn is put Into the silo at the
right stage. If, on account of wet
weather, the fodder is damp at the
time of filling the silo, the amount of
water may be reduced a little, but if
this amount is much less than equal
parts with the fodder used, more or
less mould will develop in the silage.
Failure to add enough water was the
most common fault found with the
silage made from corn fodder In the
ten or twleve silos visited.
Further suggestions on making sil
age of shocked corn will be found in

SILAtJE OF SHOCK CORN GOOD
General Opinion of Farmers Is That
Cattle Benefit from It.
Every fall numbers of farmers are
delayed in getting their silos com
pleted and find It necessary to cut
their contend shock it before the
silo is ready to use in order that the
corn may not become too ripe. Oth
er farmers are interested in refilling
their silos after the contents have
been fed out. Both instances require
that shock corn be put into the silo if
the silo is used. The University of
Missouri College of Agriculture has
investigated the possibility of using
shock corn for silage. During the fall
and winter of 1913-14 three small silos
were filled with corn fodder at differ
ent dates and with varying amounts
of water. Visits were also made to
ten or twelve farmers who were using
silage made of shock corn and sam
ples were procured for analysis.
The opinions of the men who had
used silage made of shock corn may
be summarized as follows: It is a
satisfactory feed and animals find it
more palatable and appear to do bet
ter on it than when fed shock corn.
Silage made in this way is not equal
to that made by putting corn into the
silo at the proper stage. Refilling a
silo in the middle of the winter with
corn fodder prevents the loss in feed
ing value which occurs, especially to
ward spring, when fodder is left in
the shock. It is more convenient to
feed from the silo than from the
shock. Cattle eat more of the stalk
