An Orchard Census of Missouri, j How many acres of orchards ore there in your county? This is a question that is always asked but no one can answer. While every one knows that there are a great many orchards where fruit is grown to sell including apples, peaches, etc., no one knows the exact or even ap proximate extent of the acreage. Now we have a chance to find out just what "our county" has in the way of fruit trees. The State Board j of Horticulture at Columbia is mak- ing a census oi an me commercial orchards of the state and "our coun ty" is called upon to tell what it has. Every person who has a com mercial orchard whether large or small, whether tree fruits, small fruits or what not, is urged to write to the state board at Columbia, Mo., and say that he is a commercial fruit grower. He will then be sent blanks to fill out giving details in the way of special kinds of fruit, acreage of each, etc. This is very important and we certainly hope that the farmers and fruit growers who have commercial plantations will send in their names as above directed at once in order that "our county" may make a good showing. The state board promises that as soon as the list is made up that it will be given to this paper in order that we may publish the names and acreage of each grower in the coun ty. This ought to be attended to at once. Do not put it off until tomor row. Missouri Rurahst. The Great Fieht of Our Ancestors For Independence in 1776 was successful because of their love for home. That was the greatest home-building cam paign ever launched in any country and its momentum is still carrying us along the same road, because we all know the home is "the backbone of our Nation." In other words, it's our platform - regard less of party and because of the sacred feeling we have for our homes the planning and building of one gives all full, red-blooded Americans a pleasure almost be yond control. We're probably over enthusiastic about this home-build ing business, because we have been careful to observe the good effect a nice home will have on a family. lo help make them attractive we have been extremely careful in the selection of all our building niateri- al. and we want you to see our stock. The time to build is now. CONWAY & PROCTOR. "There's No Place Like Home." Here's the Greatest Fish Catch Ever. Here's a fish story from the St. Charles Cosmos that has been veri fied by quite a number of St. Charles people who will vouch for the state ment that heavy winds on last Monday blew all of the water out of Marias Croche lake for a distance of about two miles from Boscher towns to the road leading to Denker's farm, and thousands of fish were left flopping about on the ground in the mud. Farmers going along the road saw the conditions and many of them stopped and picked up all the fish they wanted ana toon tnem Dome, tne news came to St. Charles and a number of our people went down there and brought buggy loads home with tnem. sucn a tning was never seen before. The wind coming from the southwest was so strong it just rolled the water ur. so to sneak. and carried it all to the lower end of the lake, leaving the fish behind. It was three hours or more before the water returned to the upper end of the lake enough to cover the fish again. Columbia Statesman. We rather like to read fish stories especially when well authenticated but these stories usually sound bet ter to change the location at least once a year. Exchanges will please take notice to remove the scene of the above story to some remote point, 6ay to Kansas or New Jersey. It has been rehashed annually in the St Charles neighborhood so long1 (hat it is beginning to show age. Why Not? An Iola, Kansas, police judge, has fined a woman $50, in default of which he ordered that she don over alls and work her fine out on the ( streets with the chain gang. In sen- tencing her the judge declared that ' she had been guilty of an aggravat-1 b I ed offense the men who were as-, sociated with her would be compell-i ed to either pay their fines or work! on the streets. In view of .these facts he could see no reason why she should be confined in jad a certain number ot days witn a knowledge that sentiment would preclude her working out her fine as do male onenaers, ana inai offense would only mean a period of enforced idleness during her cap tivty, after which she would be free to continue her vicious practices. In Kansas they have given women the right to vote and hold office and make laws, and in the opinion of this judge they should stand on the same plane with the male offenders before the law and not be allowed to take refuge be hind a cloak of sentiment when convicted of an offense. There, is something abhorrent to j chivalrous, manhood in the idea of forcing a woman however fallen and depraved she may be to don masculine attire and perform man ual labor on the public streets, with a ball and chain attached to her ankle. But then the idea of politi cal equality for women is also re pugnant to the majority of man kind. For to gain political equality women necessarily descend to a lower level, and if she places her self or insisrs that she be placed in such a position, there is no reason why she should not suffer the same penalties for infractions of the law as men.

According to a circular issued by the bureau of animal industry, United States department of agri culture, cheese should be more widely used as an article of diet; it is stated that one pound of cheese has nearly the same food value as two pounds of beet or oth er fresh meat It is worth as much as, or more than a pound of ham, and is more digestible. It is equal to two pounds of eggs or three pounds of fish. Where cheese is used at all, it is used in small quan tities as a luxury )at rare intervals and food products of less value and inferior palatability take, its place as .necessities, The government scientists advocate the eating of dishes in which cheese is used, as omlets, macaroni aDd cheese, and like mixtures. They claim that cheese can be eaten in large quanti ties without serious disturbance to health, as it is really a desirable food. In some cases, however, where the digestion is weak, care must be taken not to overeat, as constipation of a distressing charac ter takes place. -Torchlight. A tourist in the mountains of Tennessee once had dinner with a querulous old mountaineer who yearned about hard times for fif teen minutes at a stretch. "Why man," said the tourist, "you ought to be able to make lots of money shipping green corn to the north ern market" "Yes, I orter," was the sullen reply, "You have the land I suppose, and can get the seed." "Yes,' I guess so." "Then why don't you go into the specula tion?" "No use, ntranger," saidly re plied the cracker, the old woman Is too lazy to do the plowing and planting." Ex. JohnG.

Johnson, a banker of War rensburg, well known to -the editor of this paper, as well as some of the Fulton bankers, told this to the Warrensburg Star and we have no doubt but that it is true: "1 recently had an opportunity to get at first hand some interesting information as to what rock roads do for farm values. With my wife and others I stopped at a farm house four miles north of Pleasant Hill, at the end of the rock road to eat our lunch. We were on our way to Kansas City and the green grass and cool shade looked invit ing. We secured permission to camp for lunch and while we were eating and enjoying it the owner of the farm. Mr. Shier, came out to talk with us. He is a plain, con servative farmer, but he is an en thusiastic advocate of rock roads, and with good cause. Here is his story. "The original owner of this farm which as you know, is four miles from Pleasant Hill, tried in vain to get $75 an acre for it until the rock road movement started three years ago. After the road was built to Pleasant Hill, within a year he refused $100 an acre and having sold my farm I paid him $112.50 an acre. Since then I have repeatedly refused to put it on the market at $150 an acre. When we get connection with Lone Jack road four miles north of here I except my farm to be worth $200 an acre, because I know of several places that have sold at $250 just because they were on the rock road." - Ful ton Sun. Auto Owners Write and Wire. Jefferson City, Mo., Aug. 31. Hundreds of letters from St. Louis automobile owners have been re ceived by Secretary of State Roach the past two days asking for State licenses. Many have telegraphed thinking that this would be the quickest way, and others merely send in a request and tell the Sec retary to forward their bill and license to their address. Since Inspectator Claude D. Long, of the Secretary of State's Depart ment, having charge of the auto mobile license, paid bt. Louis an official visit and caused the whole sale arrest of parties who were op perating machines without State li cense, there has been a great awakening among the delinquents of that city. It is useless to telegraph for a license or to apply in any other way than that specified by the new automobile law. Each application must be made on a blank prepared by the Secretary of State, a copy of which will be sent to any appli cant , This blank describes the vehicle and no license will be issu ed until It is properly made out and filed with the Secretary of Sta te. . Kansas City is next on the list for a shaking up and St Joseph will follow. The latter town is supposed to be the worst sinner in the lot judging from the number of licenses issued to its citizens.
