Tbe failure of tbe Court House proposition has revived among tbe wealthy and influen tial men of the east end of the county, tbe idea of building a court house in MONROE CITY instead of Paris. They think that at the best, if a court bouse is to be built in Pans then let Paris that boasts of paying 10 per cent of the taxes of the county an! has for more than fifty years re ceived the benefit of 90 percent of tbe taxes in the form ot court bouse, jail and all busi ness accrueing there from, build and pay for a court bouse and let the people in central and western part of county, who bave practically no interest in a court house, out of tbe deal and not tax them for a thing in which pride cuts a greater fig ure than benefit or utility. Or in other words remove the county seat to tbe Metropolis and then the county will not be out anything. By the way. while Paris is boasting ot its paying taxes on bonds for public purposes, let it be distinctly understood that no one but Paris derives a sin gle dollars worth of benefit from any thing she is bonded for. Or to put It another way. When Monroe City taxed itself for a $25,000 school building, it was Monroe City's affair and a' no ones expense. It was t -e same way, when she bought as good an electric plant as there is in tbe state. And if Paris will not build a court bouse, if Paris will lay down, then tbe east end of the County and Monroe City will build a good one. The proposition does not come from tbe Democrat, l.ut from heavy tax payers. And there are no "petty poli tics in it." Simply a straight up and down and flat footed business proposition. Oaerfrom business men wbo mean business. One from men who for half a century bave paid taxes to help run the coun ty and who now think that as the Lord helps those who help themselves.lt Is now time for Paris to do something or else let others do, wbo are -both willing and able. Another court bouse proposi tion will bob up 6bortly and as the Infirmary is assured, the Court House will fall further short of votes than it did the first time. ANNUAL CORN at five Babes There is a bounciug boy the borne ot Walter Hagan. And tbe Stork bas been to Ed O'Daniels and left another fine boy. And the. gay old bird went to John Schmidts and left as pret ty a girl as can be found in the county. And for tbe first time be visit ed John and Susie Smith Utterf back and left one of llfes lovely flowers there, one wbo some time will gladen some, boys heart. And an announcement card from Coin, Iowa tells us that a 10 pound boy, Charles Daniel' Luke, has arrived at the borne ot Dr. and Mrs. Edward .(Delia Johnson) Luke. It is their first' child. Show Take An Interest In It FW it Will Benefit You- Realising that a fine corn as can be grown on eurili, i grows, in the Vicinity of .f-ros City, Mo , the Monroe City Demo crat some ten years ago estab lished a little corn so tor the benefit of agricultural sub scribers. The farmers have s'owly ta en an increasing interest in it until last year for the small premium of 1 years subscription of Democrat to the first white and the same to first yellow corn, tbe entries bad grown to quite a respectable number. This year James B. Gray, Joe Wilson, Allie Wilson, Byroa McFarland and several other farmers bave takeu an interest in it and promised to back the little Annual Show with their aid and influence. To thatcend, Tuesday, Mr. Gray and a representative of tbe Democrat invited some o the business men to co-operate with them in a small financial way and this is tbe result: There will be four casti prises ' iven. $5 lor the bst 10 ears of white corn and $2 50 fot next best and one years subscription of tbe Monroe City Democrat for third And the name three prizes for eaine grade ot yellow corn. Quality, form and size of corn will be taken into consid eration when corn is judged. Now Mr. Farcer, we ask you to awaken and assist us in freely advertising you and Grand Old Missouri It is for you not for us, tor we are all out and nothing in. In tbe past the corn ba Ween, given to those wanting it. who would agree to use it for seed. This year the farmers who h ive taken an interest in tbe show say: No dou't give it away, re serve it and we will buy it for seed (that is why 10 ears is ask ed for instead of 5 as in the past) and whatever U brings can be placed iu bank for prize money next year So, now that you are in your corn do not be atraid that John. Smith or Will Brown will have bettei corn than you, but pluck up nerve and energy and select 10 ears, that are alike in form, quality and as near length as possible and bring them in any lime between October 18. 1907 and October 26, 1907 if possible. Eutriea must close October 30, 1907 Truth How is this for the; middle of September story.
