Blood Will Tell.
The Ne as has had occasion be'
tore to point out the benefits fol
lowing the breeding of cattle and
j.jjmis to the best stock obtainable
and to thoroughbred registered
stock where possible This was
very forcibly brought out in the
i olt display in the driving class
last week when the colts sired by
O. Thompson's Willsign were easy
winners over a nice bunch of year
lings and sucklings. George NTix
on's colt, winner of first premium
over colls under eight months, was
said to be the best colt ever shown
In an interview with Mr Thomp
son he said to the News; "I tell
you that this horse Willsign and
his many good colts simply prove
what is well known to all good
breeders that if you want
premium winners you must breed
to a blue ribbon hoise."

The Remedy Worse Than the
That our system of taxation is
imperfect is not denied by anyone,
and the fact that those least able
are bearing the greater burden,
while the rich escape much of their
share, is well known, but the sin
gle tax proposition is a "jump
from the frying pan into the fire."
It will not cure existing evils, nor
will it bring about anything like
an equitable distribution of the
burden of taxation If the land
owners of the State of Missouri
are willing to vote for an amend
ment to the state constitution
providing that they alone shall pay
the expenses of running the state
government, then let them vole for
the single tax amendment, for
that's what its adoption means.

The Baby Show.
The baby show was one of thu
most interesting events of fair
week. There were 16 pretty
babies exhibited the daintiest
collection ot bright eyes and baby
smiles that was ever seen probab
ly nt a Jasper fair. The following
is the result:

To Spend Winter At Jasper.
Dr. F. M. Geeslin and Mrs.
Geeslin, or more properly, the
Doctors Geeslin, go this week
down to Jasper, where they will
spend the fall and winter. They
intend to locate up at Drexel, near
where their farm is located, but it
is impossible to get a suitable
house at Drexel at this time.
They are already favorably known
at Jasper, and they will remain
there until spring. The fact that
osteopathy is no longer regarded
as a fad or a freak here in Barton
County, but has a standing along
with the older schools of healing, is
due to the Drs. Geeslin. This
statement is only the expression
of a simple truth. Lamar Demo
