For A Greater Jasper County
The following article from the
Carthage Press is equally as good
an argument for the Jasper Fair as
for the Carthage Corn Show, and
for that reason we take pleasure in
calling the attention of our readers
"Occasionally a farmer or some
one else inquires why so much at
Icntiun is being given to the corn
show by town people, who have no
direct interest in corn growing, and
why business men go down in theii
pockets so liberally for prizes
'There is but one reason and that
i.- a desire to build up the country
through the development of its
agricultural resources. The corn
crop is an important one on every
farm and lends itself to exhibit
purposes better than any other.
It naturally becomes an important
feature of rrop shows the country
over. No farmer can he a good
corn grower without being a good
nil aruund farmer, and crop mta
tion becomes an important part of
this program Thus the effect of
these shows is very far-reaching.
"The gain is not in what any

is not in what
teach the farmers so
much as in what the farmers teach
themselves by experience, observa

'"Every addition to the quality
of Jasper county corn and other
crops and every addition to the
jield per acre of corn grown in this
count means more wealth and
resources for Jasper county, and
that is what all of us are working
for or should be working for,
whether residents of town or coun
try. "The corn show is a great educi
tor for all who re shrewd enough
to interest themselves in it and
should prove th ine.ins of bringing
about renewed interest in geiting
together and pulling together for
a bigger, better and wealthier Jas
County Institutions to be Im
proved. At a meettng held in Carthage
some months ago, a committee
was named to take up the matter
of the various institutions of the
county, with a view to bettering
conditions at some of them, estab
lishing a detention home and do
ing other things of a like nature
O D Royse, of Joplin, was named
as chairman of this committee.
Owing to depleted finances, it has
been tuund inadvisable to take up
all the matters, at this time, but
recent investigations have shown
that something should pe done to
ward improving the county farm,
even if all the other county insti
tutions cannot be improved at this
With this end in view, Mr. Royse
appointed a sub -committee, to
investigate the poor farm and meet
with the county court in Carthage
at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon
to confer with the court and later
to devise ways of bringing the mat

mittee named by Mr Royse is
composed of the following:
