Il H A few years ago when a "ertaln humorist wished to add to h's bank roll by a humorous production, he wrote the book "Through Missouri On a Mule." The boojc WU sup posed to be funny w:s a' pood deal like "Arkansas Traveler." Roth make people laugh and both were rather better tha.i the average sellers. The book was sold in six or eight different countries where th En glish language is Bp ifcen by colo nials or by original citizens of the home land. It did a good deal to make Missouri 'aniou? and also made the State lauhd aL But the highest jo.- of it all Is that the Missourians liked the book. They couldn't see anything particu larly humor1 us about riding, a mule. "It's Jest a natural way some folks have of getting about from one place to another," one Mfssou rian from Llrlssa, Douglas County, explained It. That particular man thought the Joke was all on 'lie other fellow who bought the bonk. "'The man who wrote that niuit have been a Yankee, for it sun- is a Yankee trick," the Larissa man declared. The Larissa man has a crusin who Is working on plans for the big world's fair in Sun Francisco In 1313. The cousin was told to draw some plan.? for th- Missouri exhibit and was Instru-ied to put in some 'mule stalls." He thought there must be a mistake. "Mules are just thr most obsti nate creatures of the universe," sai'l the architect. "No one woiibl want to exhibit them." The architect rapidly developed rnule-llke tendencies v hen the man, who had Instructed him to draw the plans told him to go ahead with the stalls. He became eo obstinate that the boss had to take him into his confidence "Mules are a great asset of our State." said the boss "We proud of them and want to show them off. Don't nu know that the income from mules in our state is greater th.in that from the Alaskan gold fields" We have shipped, mules tj Australia, South Afrb-a and South America. The army buys its muleF from us and wo want to nUt the m In l he. hall of fm- so the world can see how we Jorgcd to the front. On the mule the State intends to make Its bid f"r fame The men who are setting up the exhibit for the St.'.te UaVB decided to place. th- hm on the big '1st of Important exhibits, too; There will he exhibits from the mines and factories and other farm exhibits. When fhe question of what would go into the exhibit .Mine, up before the commissioners, some one sug gested the mule and the hen. The idea met with ton;? opposition. Some of the commissioners thought j a pea, ,.ck and a Vied of roses would look better. i "Anybody ran put up a pretty ex hibit," said fcme of th commission ers, ' but It isn't everyoody who has j as many fine mules and hens as we j have."
