Farmers Week. Farmers Week at Columbia was a big thing for the Missouri farmers and means much good to farming -and in fact to all industries of the state, 1369 being enrolled for the lectures and each one will carry back with him to the farm some thing which will enable him to make farming more profitable Monroe County had a representa tion of 20 and it should have been several times that number. The - speakers at the meeting were the best and most practical obtainable. Farmers Week means much to Mis souri and the attendance will be come larger as the farmers find out the great good that comes to them from attending. The farming lands of the United States are all taken up and are getting higher priced every year, at the same time a larger proportion of our citizens are moving to the cities and thereby becoming non producers of food, they are, however? consumers con sequently the food supply must be greater and in order to have this condition the farms must produce mora This can be done by more scientific farming. This being true every farmer owes irnot only to himself but to his fellow man to m ake his farm yield larger crops Amos Miller will sell at public sale at the old Dale farm 4i miles Southeast of Indian Creek, on Wed nesday, February 7, some horses, c attle, sheep, hogs, chickens, feed, household and kitchen furniture, Col.

Total Scars. The Horn Telephone Compaay, The old telephone users of Qtjin- cy remember very well what sort of service we had before the Home company was installed. The old telephone users in Quincy know how almost impossible it was to get an answer to a call between 12 and 5 o'clock in the morning. Be fore we had telephone competition in Quincy the Bell service was sim ply frightful, as every fair-minded man who knows what the service was, must admit. There are a lot of telephone users in Quincy who feel that telephone competition has been worth all that it has cost us. The Home company has always . given us good service and prompt service. And by so do ing it has forced the Bell company to give a pretty fair service, too. If the Home company goes out of ex istence, all of us in Quincy will have many reasons to regret it. We are afraid of these big monop olies. Their policy is to charge all that the people can pay and give any old service that they please. We. are afraid of the insolence and the tyranny of monopoly. The burnt child dreads the fire and we have been burnt a good many times. We are being burnt every day in our business by greedy, grasping, tyran nical, insolent monopolies. And we are afraid of them. They punish us with every breath we draw. For this reason we dread to set up an other greedy monopoly in Quincv. We would not unnecessarily hurt a single citizen "of this town. But, at the same time, we are glad to see our aldermen go slow in this matter of creating a telephone mo nopoly in Quincy. We are glad that the aldermen are going slow. That will give us all time to look into the question a little bit. Not much will be lost to anyone by a few days' delay. It's a mighty serious thing to set up another tyrannical monopoly in Quincy. Let us stop and think about it before we do it. Let us take a good, long, full breath before we again place ourselves at the mercy of a greedy telephone monop oly. Quincy Journal. Mystic Workers. The Mystic Workers held a meet ing Monday evening and selected the first and third Monday evenings each month as their time of met ing and the Modern Woodman h 1 1 as the place. This Imige is growing j rapidly and the reason is because they furnish suchjj good policy. Then the degree work is fine when properly exemplified and the Mon roe Lodge is going to have it done right. i Home Talent. Tommy's Wife was given at the opera house Thursday eveningn der the auspices of the Christian Endeavor of the Christian church. Music for the occasion was fur nished by the Symphony Orchestra, which by the way, is one of the best in the State. The entertain ment :o far as the rendition was concerned, was a grand success. On account of the weather the au dience was not so large as it would have been under more favorable conditions. ' Lambert Lane the Taylor.

We wish the new firm abundant success which t, is sure) to merit Boost For Business. Fulton business men recently pulled off their Seventh Annual Banquet at which questions of .in-; terest to the city were dfscussed. Fulton uses the term business men in its broadest sense and means all who are interested in Fulton and in measures that' will advance their town, whether they be merchants, clerkp. mechanic?, laborers or farmers living in that vicinity. Jfhe only true way to build up a town is for all classes to work together as what will benefit one will benefit all. Monroe City citizens are not do ing what they should for the ad vancement of our city. Let us all get busy end each one of us do all in his power to make Monroe a better and more prosperous town. We can do much and we should all get busy. We should not delay longer, as while we are waiting other towns are getting an advan tage. National Troubadours.

About eighty young people repre senting the best talent of Monroe City participated The several songs and drills given in costumes of the countries represented were hits and prove that Miss Elizabeth Bell, who arranged the program and drilled those who took part in it. under stands how to put on an entertain ment which will please. The U. D.

They benefit the non-borrowing stockholder as well ' as the stockholder who borrows to pay for his home Many young men first begin to save money because they took a few shares in a Building and Loan Association. Several have said lo the Democrat that they want to take stock in a home Building and Loan Association. Perhaps you want to take stock. Then please tell some of us then we can get some idea as to the probable number who would want stock and we would also have the .names and then we would be in position to take up the work systematically. We believe that the best plan would be to make the par value of a share $200 and the monthly pay ment on each share $1 00 per month; as to the interest to be paid by the borrower, that would be de termined by the stockholders. If you really want a Building and Loan Association in Monroe City, please let us know how many shares you will probably want and please do this at once and let us get this institution which will do so much toward making a Greater Monroe City, started. "T. F.S." What means thi above We know not, further than that about nine or ten seventh and eighth grade pupils have banded them selves into a society and call it the "T. F. S." They have regular meet ings at the homes of the members and are making a study of parlia mentary law, good literature and other things which will be of value in after years. These girls deserve great credit and encouragement In their good work. Last Saturday they met at the home of Miss Leonora Bristow, where in addition to regular pro gram the election of officers was also on the program. The hostess served delicious refreshments and the young ladies had a most pleas- j ant afternoon.- The officers, were elected as follows: Septa Clark, Pres. Helen Moss, Vice-Pres. Leonora Bristow, Secy. Helen Southern, Treas. , ' Mildred Settle. Chap. Dorothy Patterson, Reader. The Frank Losson stock of cloth- 4 ing in this city was sold to Samuel Selsor and possession given last Saturday. 70 acres of land near Shelbyville entered into the transaction.
