And the shipment of country butter is tar Lelow what the actual figures should be, because, we preferred to have it ,an under instead of an over estimate. We have changed the system of getting shipments, so the next annual report will be exact. There has been sold for breed ing purposes 10 boars and 14 gilts, Dur c Jersey and 35 boars and 29 giltsPoland China. All Registered stock.

Monroe City the Queen of the Prairies, is not a typical Missouri town, for it leads nearly all country or a;ricultural towns vl 2,500 population in thrift, in improvements, in snipping facil ities,' having the Burliugton, Katy and Wabash Railways and in shipments. It is the center of a high, rolling, productUe prairie 30 miles west of Quincy. A prairie that is bountiful in productiveness of grass, corn, wheat and oats. A prairie that produces an .Alberta peach that causes Georgia to say: Just like ours. A pear that makes favored California say: More sugar, more juice and a finer flavor than ours. A nutmeg that makes the R cky Ford Colorado people admit: Ours is the best but Monroe's Is belter. And the Red Apple has no eqnal on earth unless it is grown In Northeast Missouri. The Shepherds and their flocks, ot Bethlehem, were minute specks on the bills, whereas the horse, cattle, mules, hogs and sheep, bred, fattened and shipped from the Monroe prairie has worldwide reputations. No saddle nor harness ring In America U complete without Monroe borses, no war can be waged without our mules. A large per cent of our cattle, hogs and sheep being of tne best, are export goods and are known in all first class markets of the world. No other country is just like ours, for we have the climate, the water and the soil, which . goes far towards making life a paradise, for the combination means prosperity and prosperity is the happy goal that all men strive for. As tothe city Itself, its streets are solid, its pavements good as money would pay for. Its - fire department O K. and its water In business district practically limitless. If you wish to see some handnome church houses, just loo at the .
