A short time since, one of our customers re
ceived a statement from his family physician for
service rendered more than :i year ago.
This man was of the opinion that the bill had
been paid, and came to the bank to request us to
look through his account of the previous Januar;,
for a cheek of the same amount as the bill ren
VYe found the entry and date, he went home and
looked up his cancelled checks and the following
day was able to convince his doctor beyond all
doubt that the bill had been paid.
That cancelled check was worth twice its face
value. Why not have a checking account with

Fraorance of Hay.
The agreeable <>?loc of freshly cut hay
is Imparted to it by certain plants of
Hie family of the labiates, such as the
*.t la<| burlier, Woodruff, sweet trefoil,
etc., but to particular by the so called
M'tn v. grass or vernal grass (AnthOX
until m odor it lint). This latter Is a very
precocious grnmbia that nourishes as
early as the Olid ->f April or the be
ing of May. it gio.^s ,'n low ami
thick tufts ami thrives Chiefly fresh
and Shaded ground.
Vow. should you ask us wtltftCO this
.?? ir of tin; spring grass which to hay
Imparts Its fragrance. It Is due to the
aromatic principle called coumnrlti by
the chemists, This substance Is also
extracted from the ObOVC mentioned
plants in which it appears in appro*
C'lnblo quantities and used In the man
ufacture of perfumes as well ns In
medicines in the form of sedative and
carminative pnstes and sirups aguiuft

THE BANNER FARM STATE.
Missouri Tracts Smaller, but In Num
ber Tbsy Exceed Others.
Missouri has more farms than any
other state in the Union. Within her
borders are 284.880 farms, which aver
age 120 acres to the farm. The Im
proved land to each farm averages 7',
acres, or 02'j per eent. These figures
are based on the last census report.
According to the reporl of the com
merce and labor bureau, the farms of
Missouri are worth $34.75 an acre.
Among the states of the middle west
Missouri has smaller farms than many
of them. Ohio is an exception, where
270.000 farms only avorago 88 acres
each. Illinois has 201,000 farms of 124
acres each. Iowa has 228.000 farms
of 151 a- res each. Kansas has 17.'i.000
farms of 228 acres. In the United
States farms average 140 acres, but
only 00 per conl is Improved land.
1'. It, Mumford, professor of animal
husbandry in the college of agriculture
In the University of Missouri, has pre
pared so mo Interesting facts about the
amount of live stock there Is on an
nvertigo Missouri farm. This is con
sidered a prent mule state, and yet
there are four times as many horses
as there uro lUUlOS In Missouri. The
equipment as Professor Mumford
gives it is: fifteen cattle, four horses,
one mule, tvveniy-sl.v ho^s. live sheep
and a fraction of a coat.
Fully one-third of the state's popula
tion depend directly or Indirectly upon
animal products for their existence.
The income from animals and animal
products is $1:10.000.000 annually. Fif
ty live per cent of the farmers have
their principal income from live stock
in fact, innre than $800.000,000 are
Invested In farms, live stock and equip
ment for stock raising,
Missouri tdtinds third in the middle
west as the stale having the largest
number of renters on the farms. Illi
nois farms are tilled by dl per cent
owners and .".!> per eent tenants. The
percentage of tenancy In Iowa is .'<4.u,
while Missouri has only three tenants
in ten farmers, which means that sev
en farmers out of leu in Missouri do
not pay rent, hut have the title of their
farms resting in themselves. The per
centngti of tenancy in Ohio is 27.5, but
in Michigan it drops to 15.0.
There is said to be a tenant on land
of Onvld Itaukiu, in the northwest
pari of the state, making as much as
$10.000 a year on rented In ml. Tenant
farming in Missouri as well as in nil
Hie best agricultural states Is said to
be on the Increase.
Missouri elm s net got so much return
from her lands per acre as do many of
the other states According to the last
census report, the money made on each
ac re of improved land in Missouri was
$0.58 an acre. This Is much less than
In any of ttic best states surrounding
Missouri. The return per acre In Ohio
was si::.:;.;: Michigan, $12.42; Illinois,
SI2.48: Iowa. $12.22.
Seeds a Cent Apiece.
Ginseng seeds are worth 1 cent
apiece, or from .>stt (o $100 a pound.
Dried root is worth $0.25 a pound.
When first growing from the seed
the ginseng plants have two forks or
