PATTERSON, f) Contractor and Builder i MONROE CITY, MO. louse Raising and Moving Foundation Build ilding An Ear of Corn. Charles L Elzea, of south of the city has fetched (us an abnormal ear of corn that isa 'monstrocity and at the same time a beaut. Just think of what ought to be the point of an ear of corn measur ing 13 inches around it and then that the ear is only 7 inches in length and then at the point instead of there being a solid cob, there is a crater 3 1-2 inches in diameter that tapers down to a point. It is of the Reeds Yellow Dent variety and on the exterior of the cob there is not room for another grain clear to the edge of the crater, i The edge of the crater is not a I smooth circle but fluted or seal-1 loped lily, in fact when looked at i from a short distance it looks more like a mammouth yellow lily than it does an ear of corn.

Misses Margaret and Cleo Patton entertained twenty-one of their young friends Thursday evening in honor of Miss Opal Forsythe. The evening was devoted to games, mu sic and well, the dainty refresh ments came in for a full share of attention. Young men who loiter around the entrance to the store or factory, and smoke, gossip, chew and spit would do well to eliminate it Be peculiar and when you come to your work go to work, even if it be five min utes before time. This habit marks the difference between the youth who is going to be foreman nnd the others who have no luck. So says Elbert Hubbard. New York.
