VtL. 15 MONROE OITY, MISSOURI, THURSDAY. APRIL 17, 1902. NO 3 HORNY HANDED Sons of the Soil Talked Corn Saturday. The crisp bright Saturday af ternoon was ipartially spent by the pencil pusher with the farmers of Marion, Ralls and Monroe counties who were on the streets of the Queen of the Piairies. Mos of them were thinking corn crop and some talking corn crop, plowing, planting some even went so for as to say: Well I've 10 or 20 acre's planted and 40 or 00 acres, as the case might be, broiie up. A good majority of them spoke of 30 or 40 acres as "lit tle patches" and of 30 to 60 acres ol oacs as "some oats." We hardly know whether to count Jim T. Umstattd as one of'em or not because his wife and boys will put iu 30 acres of corn. James Settle 80 acres, Bob Parsons 125 acres, John H. McClintic 150. There will be 240 acres on the J. B. Gray farm, Victor Hagan & Son are booked tor 105, J. M. Proctor & Son 85, William Jones 70. Joe Carrico and Jim Hagar will have "patches" of 35 and 40 acres, Josh .Tarman, infant in dustries is down for 80 acres, Senator W. S. McClintic for 110 acres, John Kehdrick 60, Walter Boarman and Will Hamilton, "patches" 45 and 50 acres, John W. White 100, Jim Gordon 65, J. O. Wood & Son 120 acres. And the foregoing does not begin to tell the story for there are dozens of others who will plant from 50 to 100 acres and hundreds who will put in from 20 to 45 acres of the cereal that means tine beef, juicy mutton. delicious pork chops, fancy horses aud tine "muels" to say nothing of the corn juice. As too the grass possibilities and production of the farms spoken of, there is no end, and that being the case, it may well be said: The farmer is the brawn and back bone of this, the grandest couutry on earth. ground and it came with a jerk, swiped me across the face and the bosom of my pants smiled the ground. The right side of the bridge of his nose was bad ly abrazed and the cheek and eye discolored. He said: Now don't you. Well we haven't. Yesterday morning we found a well written account of a soci al function, that had been slip ped under the office door. We return thanks to the youn lady, but with us each days work has to care for itself, therefore that special piece of news was written up and nut in type Monday. We regret it, first because it was a favor from a lady, second, because it was a better description than the one we had written. by that fluid now standing with in sixty-five feet of the top of the well.
