Columbia Men Say It Means Better
Schools Throughout State.
To the Voters of Roone County:
Nothing can be more important to our
people than a fixed and liberal income
for the State University. Agricultural
College and jmblic schools. On to
morrow, a number of constitutional
amendments will be voted on at the
general election, and. while we are all
opposed to the single tax amendment,
it is hoped that every one will vote
in favor of the Xinth amendment
which, if adopted, will prove to the
greatest value to all of our schools.
Kspeeially should the citizens of Co
lumbia and Rootle County give thN
proposition a solid vote: therefore we
trust that every voter will remember
to scratch "Xo" and vote "Yes" on
the Xinth amendment, which is the
last one on the ballot.

Dr. W. P. Cutler Derr!es J.ePers from
Women Vi'Jio WMi Jo We.!.
Vo ihn t::ne of "For rvr heart
there is a heart that beats. Go forth
and find to forth and find", already
about 100 letters have come in to Dr.
W. P. Cutler of Columbia in answer to
the publication through him of a let
ter from a young governmental offi
cial in the Philippines. This letter,
from Fort William McKinlev. said
tl'.Te were at least .".000 young Amer
icans, in tin- customs, internal row
nue and other branches, all with sal
aries of $2,000 or more, who wanted
meriean girls for wives. The writer
had seen Doctor Cutler's statement
, about the need of Missouri farmers
for wives, and that so many wo-'nen
, had offered their services as to swamp
;him. He promised an outlet for the
: extra supply of would-be helpmeets,
and this batch of 100 is the first re
turns, with dozens more arriving on
every mail.
1 The story was copied by papers
throughout the United States.
One young woman writes on very
I pink note jiapcr, and scarcely knows
how to express herself. Taking no
chances on that, however, she en
closes a tinted photograph, that all
her statements may be bourn out.
She demands "A good Yankee" along
with other things. Another states
that "her hat is in the ring," that the
fpet that "the chances for young la
dies matrimonially inclined are five
thousand strong in the Philippine
Islands," appeals to her very much.
A young widow, -'stout healthv and
jolly," is tired of silicic harness. One
yellow sheet tells the sad tale of a
correspondence with a "cable-snlicer.
in Manila,"' who met a young lady
over there and another romance wns
nipped in the bud. The writer is will
ing to lie consoled by a man from the
Philippines. One who has a little
money b'it no life companion, has de
cided that life is not worth living
without a better half. Most of the
men or Xew York are a dissipated and
worthless lot and not fit to hitch up
to. Flu believes. "I would not mind
living in the woods as long as ba--!-ness
prevailed." she says, "and the
closer one lives to nature, th" Inn
pier one can exist." She will s"nd
photo upon request.
An unmated person of the weaker
sex who indulges in gilt-edged miner
tends in the qiiorv, "Are young 'un
derscored! men the only ones in the
Philippines who are wifeless?" Sh
frankly owns up to 1". years and any
nice man over !0 will do for her. One
IT year old girl misread the article
in the pa.uer. She understands that
there-are young men in Columbia who
are in need of wives. She will take
any "Good Man. but no Loafer or
Rum." -
