KEAL VALUE OF GOOD ROADS
'Missouri Is entering upon an era of
good-road building. To the communi
ties which have the best roads in the
near future, will be attracted the'
buyers of land, farms and homes.
Those communities will benefit by an
increase in land values wholly com
mensurate with the money invested in
"Good roads promote self respect
In a community," says Dean E. J. Mc
Caustland in a recently issued bulle
tin of the agricultural extension serv
ice on "Country Roads." "They make
possible social intercourse. They
bring the benefits of churches within
the reach of all. They help to keep
the boys on the farm. They cheapen
the cost of transportation of farm
products to the markets and thus add
to the farm profits. They add to the
value of farm lands much more than
they cost. They mark the degree of
civilization of the rural community."
The trade centers which have the
best network of good roads covering
the surrounding trade territory and
concentrating in (those ,towns, will
profit by good roads as much as the
farmers themselves. Good roads ben
efit farmer and merchant alike.
It i3 reported that the doughboy in
France made good money, the only
trouble as that he didn't make
enough of it.
Just to prove that everything has
its purpose in the world, we suggest
that the mosquito makes us think
more kindly of the fly.
City property In Columbia Is on
the boom. And Boone County farm
land is advancing in price so rapidly
that the real estate dealers can't keep
up with the business of trading property.
The University is getting back to
normal again. Next fall the enroll
ment is expected to go over the three
thousand mark and one Columbia mer
chant of recognized judgement said at
a meeting of the Commercial Club that
he expected 5,000 students in the Uni
versity next fall.
Columbia's houses that stood vacant
during the war are rapidly filling up
and rents are going to be higher by
fall, according to real estate dealers
and rental agencies. All of these
things mean better prices for Colum
Boone County land is selling for as
high as $160 an acre around Halls?
vllle and Centralla, land that is not
especially well Improved and which
would not have brought more than
$100 an acre four year ago. Iowa
farmers who are sjelllng out their
farms for $200 and upward are coming
to Missouri in droves to buy cheaper
Young farmers from Iowa who are
not able to buy the high-priced Iowa
land are also coming to make a start
on Boone County farms. Speculators
are beginning to take notice of the
boom and are buying land and turn
ing it at an advance inside of a few
All of this activity means prosperity
Tor the merchants of Columbia, good
business for everyone concerned and
more money for the community.

Major Jennie Ward, in charge of the slum work of the Army
in New York city, found the cripple' living in one room on
Cherry street, with a baby sister and widowed mother, recovering from influ
enza With her last earnings the widow had paid the rent Major Ward entered
a room in which there was neither fire nor food It was the home of three
humans a baby, a cripple, a frail, toil-worn, woman that hunger and cold
would have turned into a death house in a few hours.
In less time than it takes to tell a stove, cooked food, medical assistance and
soul comfort were supplied. The Army assumed guardian

This is 'an actual case one of thousands on the records of
the Army. It deserves your support
