MISSOURI IX PREVIOUS WARS
In the Citil War, Missouri toy virtue
of her position as a border slave state
was of great strategic and political
value and was, therefore, the fighting
ground of contending armies. Mis
souri was the kindergarten of the
Civil War, for from the little army
with which Lyon fought the battle of
Wilson's Creek, came seven major
generals and thirteen brigadier
generals. Of the Missourians who
fought in that battle on the Southern
side, seven came to be general of
ficers of the Confederate Army. When
the year 18G1 closed, there had been
How Missouri Could Save.
The population of Missouri, sub
tracting the 59,356 men in service
from the census of 1910, is 3,233,979.
Each of these persons saving one slice
of bread at each meal daily, or 9.701,-
fought lit Missouri, and for the. most in a uarrel or ' wou,d ' make '
part between Missourians. 161 battles daily total of 2,321'A barrels of flour.
with losses of about six hundred kill
ed on each side.
The first blood shed on Missouri
soli, that at Camp Jackson when sol
diers fired on the multitude after the
surrender of the fort, killing and
wounding nearly a hundred turned
many Northern sympathizers into
hearty supporters of the Confederacy.
And this act helped to impart to the
whole strife in Missouri a vindictlve
ness which it bore to the end. The
fighting in Missouri was more desper
ate and deadly on account of this.
Altogether, Missouri furnished
109,111 to the Union and about 40.000
to the Confederacy.
Many Missourians had been trained
in the war with Mexico so that they
could take command when the Civil
War broke out. Missouri sent 6,000
men to fight Mexico. Only two other
states did more, Kentucky with 7,392
and Louisiana with 7,011. In his army
of the West as first organized. Kearney
had two Missouri regiments under
Doniphan and Price. There were four
companies too many, those from
Marion, Ray, Platte and Polk coun
ties. These were formed into a
battalion under David Willock. The
Missourians marched across the plains
to Sante Fe and proceeded to occupy i
the domain that is now four states. 1 5
Kearney went to make sure of Ccli- j
fornla. Doniphan's march was to be- Ej
come one of the famous military j
feats of America. William Cullen
Bryant wrote: "This body of menjE
conquered the States of New Mexico
and Chihuahua and traversed Durango E
and New Leon: On this march Doni-jE
phan's famous expedition soon was'
known throughout the country. They.E
traveled more than 6,000 mjles, ccn-
suming twelve months. During all this !E
time, no word reached them from the
government, nor any order whatso
ever; they neither received supplies of
any kind nor one cent of pay. They
lived exculsively on the country
through which they passed and sup
plied themselves with powder and
balls by capturing them from the
enemy. From Chihuahua to Matamor- s
as, a distance of 900 miles, they march-
ed in 45 days, bringing with them 17 jE
pieces of heavy artillery as trophies ":
Missourians were appointed to govern
all of the conquered territory.
In the Spanish-American War, sons
of Union and Confederate soldiers E
fought side by side. Missouri heartily E
supported President McKinley in
everything he did in the brief term of .E
the war. The northwest part of the
state furnished the Fourth Missouri E
regiment which went down to Camp,
Alger and marched by the President
the day after it arrived as an object E
lesson in citizen soldiery coming right
from the shops and farms without E
waiting for arms, uniform or equip- E
ment. But it had energetic officers
who soon worked it into one of the E
best regiments in the service. The
Fourth was the first Missouri regi- E
ment under orders to go to the front E
and was about to move when the war
suddenly collapsed. E
So through every war, Missouri has E
been a foremost state in loyalty. Shc(
has been quick to answer the nation's E
call and has stayed in the struggle E
with all her resources until peace was
again declared. In the Civil War Mis-'E
sourl wa3 the only state which sup-
plied its quota both to the Union and E
Confederate armies. In frontier days E
she was continually forced to fight
Indians and many a tale is still told E
of the stirring events of those days and s.
of the heroism of Missourians. E
The Italians firmly believe in the'E
efficacy of the water cure. At least's
they blocked the Austro-German ad- E
ranee effectively by opening the Plave E

RAILROADS COXSERYIXG FOOD
Cafe Cars and Restaurants Observe
Meatless and Wheatless Days.
More than 85,000 pounds of meat,
costing about $250,000, are being
saved annually for our soldiers and
sailors and the fighting men of our
Allies by not serving meat on Tues
days in railroad cafe cars and restaur
ants, says a statement issued by the
railroads in Chicago.
This estimate is based on the re
ports made by forty-one railroads,
covering practically the whole coun
try, at the meeting there of the
American Association of Dining Car
"Meatless Tuesdays" and "wheat
less Wednesdays" are being strictly
observed now on nearly every rail
road and will be while the war lasts.
The only exception will be the serving
of meat on Tuesday to troops in
transit. The question of whether
that shall be done has been referred
to the Federal Food Administration.
Some railroads have eliminated
roast beef and are serving steaks or
beef only at the evening meal. Oth
ers will continue for an indefinite
time to serve meat in some form three
times a day, except on Tuesdays.
All lines reported that the traveling
public has evinced hearty sympathy
with the policy to conserve meat and
wheat in the cafe car service.
