to encourage tho employment of
more modern methods of farm

Iu these meetings will be voiced

havo made a life-study of the

one who is interested in advanced
mothods of farming can attend
without being benefitted and gain
ing information of value. They
solicit questions, suggestions and
papers on any subject or topic
pertaining to agriculture or hor
ticulture. This should be a matter of im
portance to all, and it is earn
estly hoped that there will be a

with your presence, but give us
the benefit of your knowledge
and experience so that others

who were present.
In all the remarks tho speakers
showed that they had not for
gotten grand old Missouri. To
show that the reminiscences of
Missouri reached far back in the
lapse of time one of the last
speakers recited that truo aud
trite poem, "My Name It is Joo
Bowers, etc.'' The meeting was
no doubt a very enjoyable affair,
and it shows that Missouri has
even furnished her quoto of

To the- l'ublic.
It was no deception, and we
meant every word of it when
sometime ago wo advertised our
slock of eoodj for sale. We
found it 'mpossible to close out
such enormous stock at retail, no
mutter at what discount ollered,
without almost giving ii away.
This we could not afford to do.
We have also failed to close out
in bulk after repeated efforts and
trials. Hut we have greatly re
duced our stock which is now in
splendid shape. We have moved
our grocery department into our
main store, thereby reducing
rents and other expenses.
Aud as we have failed to sell
out we have decided to continue
in business, and will sell goods
cheaper than over before. We
are already receiving new goods,
and circumstances allow us to
sell very cheap.
