replies to questionnaires addressed h)
this bank to agriculturists and country

In tlie areas which were affected by the

dried out sufficiently to permit of plant

it is hoped to offset a considerable part
of the loss occasioned by high water.

LIGHT VOTE IS
BEING CAST IN
Total Number of Ballots
City at 3 O'clock Is Only
248 First Ward
GENERAL APATHY SHOWN
Officials Believe That Major
ity of Voters Are in
Favor of Tax
An unusually light vole had lieen cast
for the special tax levy at 3 o'clock this
afternoon. A total of 248 votes were
counted in the four wards.
The votes by wards at that time were:
First ward, Brown's Confectionary, 50;
second ward, Boone County Courthouse,
71 ; third ward, basement of Elk's .Lodge,
80; fourth ward. Stone's Garage, 47.
Clerks at the four wards expected a
large vote to come in between 5 and 6
o'chxk from the working class. They
did not expect the vote the rest of the
day to be more than a third of the first
"The light vote indicates apathy on
the part of the citizens of Columbia,"
says W. B. Killiher, one of the judges at
the second ward. "The vote at this ward
should be nearer 700 than 70. Some per.
sons feel that when they vote they are
accepting or rejecting a particular park
site. A a matter of fact, the vote de
cides whether or not a one-mill tax will
be levied for the establishment and up
keep of a public park system."
The general opinion among officials at
the polls was that voting was in favor of
the measure. An occasional group of men
gathered from time to time during the
lay on Eighth street near the courthouse,
but no general discussions of the meas
ures went on in the streets.
The opinion among iudges and clerks
j in charge of the polls was that the light
vote indicated a general lack ol concern
in the matter of supporting a public park
ind a fear that a public park will in
crease citv taxes.
If the park measure is passed, a park
board of nine members will be appointed
by the mayor with the confirmation of
,the city council. This board will have
charge of the park fund and will hae
authority to accept or reject park oilers.

If the directors of tfie Old Trails

sion, as they will be if the resolution is
pas-cd on, the bridge will be free. This

The resolution submitted by order of
the directors to he voted on Monday fol

If the bridge is free the government
wilt give an amount equal to that raised

Under this plan those who have

"But as I said before, the easiest
thing to get for the play of a traveling
stock company was a dog. the com
panies always expected us to furnish all
the stage equipment.
"One day back in 1895 my brother
Will, who helped me with the show
house, stepped out the side door on
Ninth street and yelled. The first boy
who brings me a dog will get a free

pass io me snow luniKiu.
"Well, sir, inside of five minutes Ninth
street was full of dogs and boys. Some
youngster brought the decrepit old hound
that lay around in the sun at the livery
stable, and didn't hate enough self
respect even to snap at flies. A rascal
even brought my dog. Old Bird.
"By jiggers! you know that was too
much for me. I took charge of getting
stage property from then on."
Columbia Family Completes
Tour of 12,000 Miles
Through the West.
"One cannot see the beauty of a town
if he goes into it through the bark door
on a train. In an automobile one goes
into a town through the front door and
does not see the alleys and uninteresting
streets." C W. Furtney, formerly dealer
in electrical supplies in Colum
bia, said regarding the advant
ages of touring the country in an auto
mobile. He and his family returned to
Columbia Monday night from a 12,000
mile trip through the West. They left
here November 18.
"Of course," he continued, "the ex
pense of a trip over the country in an
automobile is greater than by train. How
ever, the advantages of driving are
enough to warrant the additional cost."
They carried a complete camping and
cooking outfit with them, enabling them
to go as far as they liked each day.
Over the old Santa Fe trail they trav
eled to California, stopping at points of
interest along the way. , They reached
Los Angeles on December 3, where they
stayed a month before going on to San
Diego for a month's stop. From Long
Beach, where they also stayed a month,
they took the coast route to San Fran
cisco, After visiting Yosemite Park a
week, they went back to Los Angeles,
from where they took the Arrowhead
trail to Yellowstone Park. From there
they went through Cheyenne, Wyo.. to
Denver, to Gilorado Springs and back
through Kansas City t Columbia.
While on the way nut to Los Angeles
they met a man who was on his way 1
around the world un foot. As soon as
the Furtneys arrived in Los Angeles, they
lead in a newspaper tliat the walker had !
arrived there and was working therv. !
.Many tourists with partly filled cars had
picked him up and carried him.
