TO DAM OSAGE RIVER
Kansas City and London Capitalists
Seeking Option on River Land.
B.E. Silvester of Kansas City who is do
representing Kansas City and London
capitalists was in Bacnell the latter
part of last week taking option on
river land relative to damming the
Osage river at the William Conner
farm above Bagnell.
The dam is to be thirty feet high
for the purprse of using the water
power to generate electricity. Sev
eral electric lines are contemplated
to be completed in the next few years
to Jefferson.City from Southern and
Western parts of the State, and in
that event this company which is now
taking options on the aiver land near
the point of the proposed dam site
will furnish the electrical power for the
different lines and will also furnish
lights (or the nearby citu.s and towns,
This proposed dam will in no way
hinder navigation on the Osage but
will furnish slack water for a number
of miles above Bagnell, thus raising
the water on several shallow shoals
and making navigation more certain
from Bagnell to Linn Creek. Miller
Benton County sort of cot it The
Times $309.40: Enterprise 309.40
and Courier $462 05, for publishing
and printing ballats, a total of $1080
85 so you can see wheje the Morgan
County Republican continues to save
he taxpayers good money, but if you
think we are going to stay on the
job on win 1 pudding and spring
water an tne time we'taiK to you
later about it.
He Laughed 'Till He Died.
Taylors, Ohio, Ade Skinner, the
village pessimist laughed himself to
death from reading BIFF! the Great
American Magazine of Fun which is
making greater strides than any other
magazine before the American public
today. It is a magazine that will
keep the whole family in a good
humor. The stall of Biff contains the
greatest artists, caricaturists, critics
and, editors on the continent. It is
highly illustrated and printed in many
colors. It will keep the whole family
cheerful the year 'round. You can
afford to spend 50c a year to do this.
Send this clipping and 50c today' to
The Biff Publishing Co. Dayton,
Ohio, for one year s subscrption.

EXTENSION OF SERVICE.
The WafrtSrJsburg State Normal
School is serving a larger number ol
students this Fall then usual.
In addition to an increased atten
dance in .residence, 108 students are
doing work outside of residence.
These students are carrying work
in extension classes, or by correspon
dence. The Normal School supplies
text books and Library reference
books. Members of the Faculty meet
their classes regularly and tbe work
is done with the same thoroughness
as if done in residence. The work
being done by correspondence is
assigned to faculty members who
supply complete outlines of the work
required and students send in weekly
written reports on the work done ;
the papers are corrected and graded ;
the grades arc placed to the credit of
the students and the corrected papers
are returned for their guidance in
This school is further aiding the
teacher: by giving credit for Reading
Circle work done under the direction
of the Education Department of the
school; by this plan any teacher may
work while carrying on their
schools sufficient to receive one half
the credits ordinarily made in one
quarter of residence work
These new departures the school
to go to students who cannot come to
it. This is as it should be. The
Normal Schools are supported by the
state that they may serve all the peo
ple of the state. This school is cer-
tanly striving to discharge its full
duty in thisjregard.
In recent years, the state has been
liberal in its support ot this school
The plant is an excellent one. The
entire equipment is best educational
thought of today. The organizatation
of departments conserves the students'
time and energies in the best way
possible and the high recognition
given to graduates of this school, not
only in Missouri, but in other staters,
is the best proof of the high standard
of the work that is done. To high
recognition it given in other states for
the good of Missouri schools. Too
many are induced to leave our own
state because it is made to their in
terest to do so.
Young men and women without
settled engagement for the winter
would bo well to considcrjthe oppor
tunities offered in this excell ent
school, enter at the opening of the
winter quarter, December 2nd, and
complete a full year's work by the
end of summer school.
Small-pox may be prevented by
vaccination. One successful vaccina
tion gives a partial protection against
small-pox. In such a person the dis
ease is mild-varioloid. A second
successful vaccination gives a greater
protection, and a third successful
vaccination is absolute protection a
gainst small-pox. The second and
third vaccination are very mild. The
protection given by vaccination is
temporary lasts form five to seven
years. Rcvaccination then is necess
ary if freedom from small-pox is desi-
red. Rarely is vaccination severe.
The very sore arms are due to in
fections from the skin.
To reduce these secondary infec
tions, antiseptic precautions
should be used while vaccinating and
the area vaccinated should be kept
c,ean and protected

Keeping Up the Milk Yield
Now is the time to commence feed
ing the cows. It is true the grass is
I still green but it has not much feed
ing value. A cattle feeder does not
think for a moment of finishing offja
I bunch of steers on this fall grass.
Why should a dairyman expect the
cows to'maintain their milk yield on
Buttcrfat is scarce. The price is
high and is going higher. It will
pay to producemore butteriat, but it
cannot be done by feeding they
cow fall grass, corn stalk? and timoth
hay. It is also a mistake to 'neglect
the cows for a few weeks, intending
to make amends by liberal feeding
when winter comes. It is important
that the milk yield never be allowee
to decline. It is almost impossible
to bring a cow back to her normal
flow alter it has been permitted to de
cline. It is important that fall feeding be
commenced now before the milk flow
is cut down by short grass and scant
feed. Those who are fortunate
enough to own a silo should give
each cow about 25 pounds of silage
a dry. Every cow should have all
the clover, alfalfa, or cowpea hay she
will clean up. This will amount to
about iolbs. a day if the silage is fed.
If silage is not fed more hay should
be given. It is well to remember
that cowpea hay is one of the cheap
est of dairy feeds.
Cows giving over a gallon of milk
a day should be fed grain. A good
mixture is corn chep mixed with bran
or cottonseed meal. Corn and cob
meal may be substituted foi the chop.
A pound of this mixture should be
given each day for cery 3 pounds of
The best of cows will not produce
milk unless fed liberaly on the right
kind of feed.
