FINE PLACE SELECTED held on March 7th. Crcat interest is being manifested throughout the state and if the locali ties in the different counties are as well represented as those in Cape county, it is needless o say that Missouri Hen Day will be one of the biggest events of the season. Missouri is the greatest poultry state in tin- I'liion. We admit it,--and we are proud of it. A larger number of Missouri's citizens un engaged in poultry raising, either to a large or small extent, than are engaged in any other single industry. The value of the poultry ami eggs produced in Missouri last year was irreater than the value of Missouri's show st cla in Tennessee, anil without consulting his dissatisfied spouse in the matter, took their little three-year-old son along with him. When Mrs. Tines learned of his activities, she grew suddenly busy, got in communication with the authorities at Chaffee, and there had her departing winner half intercepted and detained to the end that she might recover the boy. However, as the ofliccrs at Chaffee had no legal authority to either hold Mr. Tines ot separate him from his charge, this weie compelled to lc- lease him. Later SheiitT Siinimeis went to Chaffee for the purpose of restoimg the boy to his mother, but in Ii" I, ....i., i.. .iWi tln train failed to gel niiteiiipnues , . 1 an order ot I akotas, ( 'oloiailo so-called Waves All Over the F.ntire World. : .1 well known in thi!
