"Grand Old Missouri" and here is
why of the title. About a year ago
.Clay Urderhill bought the. old Ger
ard farm B miles east of the city
and of course he put in a corn crop
38 acres all told. - He gathered and
sold by weight the 8 acres that was
estimated at 60 bushels . per acre
and it made 80 bushels per acre
and itched him 60c per bushel,
The otiier 30 acres was estimated
at 50'bushels and at that rate it
will make from 65 to 70 bushels
per acie. So one readily sees how
long it Li.. .en to pay for $50 or $60

Awarded Saturday at Farmers
Democrat's Corn Show.
Saturday a typical Missouri Octo
ber day filled the business streets
with farmers and a crowd of them
Stood around the L. M. Wood dlS-
play windows all day, admiring and ,
criticising the pretty silvery and
golden King Corn.
With the day came Prof. C. B.
Hutchison of the Missouri Agricul
tural College to score the corn and
to say what exhibitors had the'ot R-flfi rVlnrk thp mnrrindp nf Miss
best samples of corn.
The prizes was $10 on first, $5
on the second and one years sub
scription of the Monroe City Demo
crat third, on White, Dent and Yel-1
low corn. Or a total of $45 in cash
and the three years subscription of
W. A. Wilson took first and sec
ond on w hite and George L Hamp
ton third. Dent: J. M. Proctor
first and third and Buckman Bros.,
second. Yellow: William Small-
wood first, N. B. Smallwood second
and J. B. McClintic third.
Col. William T. Youell was there
in all of his glory and generosity
for he came all the way from Han
nibal to serve the Corn Show and
to sell the com just for the fun of
the thing for he never dreamed of
a fee nor did we of giving him one.
He began by ' jollying the crowd
collectively, James B. Gray, Col-
Dick Hixson and W. J. Rouse indi
vidually and then settled down to
what am I offered, going, going
gone and though the corn did not
bring its true valne, it brought
every dollar that it was expected to
bring and when the white was
knocked off to J. B. Gray for $10,
the Dent to H. B. Mudd for $5.50
and the yellow to William Turpin
for $4.50. the ones who had worked
for the success of the show were
pleased and happy for they did not
believe there was an Auctioneer
on earth that could have made it
fetch more $$.
Prof. Hutchison did his work
neatly and with dispatch and when
we handed him a check for $14 for
expenses and s ervices he and we
The farmers and Democrat takes
off their caps and returns thanks
to L M. Wood the druggist, for nu
merous oourtesies extended.
Messrs. Gray, Rouse and Hixson
had $29 credit to Corn Show at the

Added to that is the money the
j corn sold for, $20 which leaves
; $26.60 in the bank and the parties
that are to conduct the Corn Cami-
' Later Buckman Bros., winners
of second on Dent com generously
turned their premium $5 back to
premium fund which leaves $31.60.
J. M. Proctor Jr., not thinking
that J. M. Proctor & Son would win
, one of the premiums told the chil-
dren that if he did they might
have it. As it is he thought that
$5 out of the $10 would be enough
for them so left one half ($5) in
the premium fund which increased
it to $3fifi0

Proctor was solemnized at the
Christian Church, the Rev. J. M.
The church was tastefully deco
rated with a profusion of potted
plants and cut flowers, while pillars
of white, twined and festooned with
honeysuckle formed a pleasing
frame for the bridal party.
After an organ selection by Miss
Olivia Brown, two vocal solos, "I
Love and the World is Mine" and
"0 Heart of Mine" were beautifully
rendered by Miss Bertha Jaeger.
Then the strains of the old but
ever beautiful wedding march of
Mendelssohn broke forth and down
the side aisles the four pretty ush
ers, Misses Marguerite Reid, Amy
Green, Mildred Buell and Lucile
Proctor marched slowly to their
places. They were dressed in dain
ty white gowns and carried bou
quets of pink carnations tied with

Forsythe in green also carrying
white chrysanthemums, preceded the
bride down the middle aisle and
Mr. Paul Cox the best man took
his place at the same time.
Then came the bride on her fath
ers arm. She was met by the
groom and amid sweet strains from
the organ they were made one and
they marched out to the swelling
chords of the Lohengrin march.
The bridal gown was of white
satin trimmed with crystal and sil
ver and veil caught with lilies of
the valley fell in soft folds about
her. She carried a bouquet of
A reception was held after the
ceremony at the home of the bride.
Mr. and Mrs. Ely, Dr. and Mrs.

the pink, green and white color
scheme. Punch was served by
Miss Lillian McNutt and Miss Opal
Forsythe and dainty refreshments
were served the guests in the din
ing room which was hung with
vines and cut flowers.

Clean Houses and Dirty Towns.
If your city is smoke-laden, if its
streets are full of litter ond (iirt. if
every vacant lot is a repository of
rubbish, the individual dust pan and
brush will be of little avail. Even
though your house may be a model
one in every matter pertaining to
health, and though you set your
children the highest example, it
may profit you nothing. You can
not tell at what moment your chil
dren may suffer in health because
of some disease-breeding district
that you did not feel it was your
business to know about: or when
your growing boys may come in
contact with depravity, bred by
overfeeding and overcrowding.
So, in the final analysis we find
that everything that has to do with
town sanitation has a direct bear
ing on the individual household.
It is increasingly difficult to tell
where the buisness of the home
ends and somebody else's business
begins. One thing is sure: The re
lation between municipal house
keeping and good homemaking is a
It is evident that the individual
woman cannot look after all these
things herself. One woman alone
could scold at any town abuse dur
ing her life time, but, without oth
ers to help her, her scolding would
be of little use.
We have so many, many reasons
to be proud of our little city of
Monroe and with the sincere co
operation of the general public it
can be made a model city.
Thanks is due to Mr. E. L Ander
son for the wonderful improvement
ot his corner and if every citizen
will make it his personal duty to
improve or help to improve all un
sightly and unclean, surroundings
our little town will be sanitary as
Well as beautiful
We pay the highest price for
country produce. C F. Dierks.
