New York, the 'Empire State'' boasts of its dairy in terests. Missouri is an ideal stock or cattle state and could be made an ideal dairy state, because in climate it is more temperate than New Yoik, its blue grass pastures excel all others and its supply of pure free-stone water is inexhaust able. During the last 10 months of 1904 1 P Stephens shipped 1,113 gallons of cream. J W Evaus in 7 months shipped 810 gallons, J A Bixler in about 7 months shipped 700 'gallons, P C Wisehart in 9 months and 10 days shipped 1368 gallons. The reason Missouri has not caught up with and passed the Empire State is that Missourians have devoted their attention and time to producing fine beef cat tle instead of dairy herds. Of course ladies can farm suc cessfully.

Since theu he has raised from three broud sows 87 head ot hogs, beside the 5 that he killed for meat. He said he uever had such good luck betore." Maybe it is the difference between Henry coun ty. III . and Monroe county, Missouri. No wonder the "suckers" come to Missouri Al Sputdiug of Hunnewell, Was, Jn the city Saturday and from him we learned that he bad bought and shipped from various points during 1904 70 car loads of horses and mutes A few years ago the Kansans burned corn tn preference to cribbing it, presumably for the pleasure of raisiug. or trying to aaotbtr crop. jror ten Contioued sa page Monroe City, Missouri, Queen of the Prairies and Contiguous Territory, Shows Healthy Growth and Shipment " A Good Increase. a r I j; W bearing this label TP- PRODUCT cars. ... 130 142 ... 42 23 6 Cittle Hog L i nib S'ieep Horses.

It is a prairie that rivals and surpasses K entucky for Bluegras, one that surpasses all others for Timothy, one that is causing the timbered lands to look for their laurel when it comes tolled Clover, a prairie, when tickled by the husbandman laughs with its hurden of Oats and Corn, a prairie that trembles tro.n the tread of the large herds of registered cattle, bogs, sheep, horses and is the native home of the Missouri Mule that has made a World Wide reputation for superior ity It is not only nn agricultural country, but, it is a producer of the luscious Strawberries, Blackberries.

Of the second, there are six and three-quarters, (6) miles of solid streets and more miles of good solid gravel roads than can be found entering any town between Hannibal and St. Joseph or Kansas City.
