Report of Advisory Board. "Your .dlsory lUwi'd respect fully submit to you the following, report: j "During the last year it has held i numerous meetings, us occasion re-j duired, and from time to time has I endeavored to advance the interests of this city and its business men us opportunity offered. It Is almiwt impossible to make n detailed, ri port of its doings, and only in a geu erol way can its work be brought to the attention of the chili. Annual Stock Show. "Nothwlthstunding that there wus only u smnll subscription to sup port the lust stock show and sales, and thut there was but little time to arrange for its holding after It was definitely decided to do so, it wus u success. All of the fiiiuucial obli gntions wer met uud there remains to the club upon the lot where the show is held a grund stand. This was put up i a durable shape and has been puinled to preserve It as well us possible from the weather. "We suggest and recommend that definite steps be now taken for hold tug the stock show and sules during the coming summer. Should the club take such action it should be eninmiinicuted at once to the South east Missouri Short Horn Hrceders Association, so that they can ar range for their sale and for their show of cattle. "To hold the show in the manner that It should be held will repuire a siibscilption from tl itizens and merchants, not, however, as large as has been necessary in former years, as the largest expense has been done away with In the grand stand erected last year. Had it been possible to double its capacity there is no ipiestioii but that the show would almost tuke cure of it self from the receipts from the sale of seats. The Ely-Walker Shirt Factory. "It is to be regretted that the shirt factory of Ely-Walker has b closed. This was due to the Inabil ity of the management to secure the necessary help und ulso to the finan cial flurry thut occurred nt the close of lust year. Ry subscription und in purt out or the dues of the club the rental bus been paid upon the building up to the time id the dis continuance of the factory. Your Advisory Board gave the necessary notice to the owner of tho building, puid tho rent up to and Including here the report Is left blank. "Under the leuse there yet remains that this club put the building in the shape it was before certain changes were made. This will cost some thlnu' above lUPiVOO. There Is also some difference of opinion as to the! terniB of the lease, which remain to he settled, and we recommend that this whole mnttee be referred to tho Advisory Hoard for final settlement. "From such Information as hns come to this board from several of the merchants who subscribed lib erally to the securing of this fuctory and to Its maintenance, It is believed that while it was running there was to the business Interests of tho com munity generally a good return on CHOICE CRUSHED FRUITS.

These have been care fully exumiii'tl. und it is the judg-UM-iit of Hie board that in Farming ton as a rule it is Inadvisable to se cure enterprises by paying to them bonuses. Occnssloiiully there may arise an exception to this in the case of small and local enterprises. Railway and Mail Facilities. "Recently, by change in the rail road schedules, there has been some iu ivenience to the city in the mutter of mail services and railroad facilities. The Advisory Hoard hns tuken the matter up, and while it is Impossible to report anything detln Ito we believe thut in u short time the railroad and mail facilities will be as good, if not better than form erly. Dues. "It has been found dilllcult to col lect the dues of the club promptly. Some of the members not do seem to realize the need ot having available funds with which to prosecute the work in hand. Others do net seem to realize the work that has been ipiletly done und the demonstrated value of the club. In order to make the collection of dues the easier and the more prompt, and ulso to enlist a larger number in the work of the club, we recommend that the dues he reduced from ten dollars a year to five dollars a year, payable iiiar i...i. ...I r.MMiiooictid thai, the clubby resolution urge Its members to promptly pay as inese nusnu incuts fall due.
