Last Sunday was a great day with us 175 in S. S. and a large congre gation at the morning services. I would estimate it at 275 people. Next Sunday morning I will finish the theme I started last Sunday and I am anxious that you shall hear it, for I think this theme will be of more interest to you. At night I shah use the theme: "The Word of God, a divine revela tion" and I hope every member of the church will try and hear this theme, for I consider it worth the effort it will cost you to come out. . Well, Dr. Linn came and is gone. I am sure he appreciated the large congregation that greeted him and I do not believe you were disap pointed. He brought a great mes sage to our town. I may say that I did not know that he was going to epeak on Education until I met him, but he felt that he wanted his home church put to the front, and she was put there after some effort on his part. You cannot blame him for wanting the church of his mother taking her stand with the leading churches in the State, and to show the deep feeling for his parents, he gave $50 as a memorial fund to their sacred memory. For the benefit of those who thought you slow in responding, let me say this church made two offerings for our school, and those who had giv en did not feel that they could give again, and the others were timid, but we have given about $900 and this is great considering the hard times. I hope the good work will go on from Sunday to Sunday. CI. HOY. GRACE BAPTIST. No preacmng last Sunday as the pastor was at Stoutsville. Next Sunday S. S. 9:45 a. m. Preaching 11 a. m. and 7:30 p m.

It was served by the ladies of the Methodist church and every one of the sixty or more present greatly enjoyed the splendid meal, the good talks and the enthusiasm for a Greater Monroe is rapidly spreading If as yet you have not contracted the disease get yourself in position to become infected. It will do you good. Throw away that old ham mer and quit knocking. If things are not being done as you think they should, show yourself a man and try to make them go right. That is the way, the only Jway to accomplish anything good for your town or yourself. We honestly be lieve that people who are continual ly knocking on the town in which they live owe it to themselves to move to some other place where they would find things more to their way of thinking. But, we have digressed The meeting was presided over by J. D. Robey the president of the Boosters Club, al tho while the eating was going on Mr. Robey was quite busy andlpaid but little attention to what others were doing. Roy B.

That Is For the People to Decide. It Will Sure Be One or the Other Many Favor Paving, Others Are For Macad amGreat Natural Re sources At Our Door. .For years it was recognized that Monroe City had the beat streets to be found in any city of its size in Missouri. Where the water works and sewerage system was put in the streets were dug up and since we cannot boost of our good, streets, but there will be a change and that right soon. It has been de creed by the people who do things that Monroe City Streets are soon to be such that we will all be proud of them. Many favor paving in the business district and Macadam in the residence district; others think the paving too rich for our blood (but it is not) and are in favor of making it all Macadam. If the Macadams is used it will probably give Monroe City a new industry which will give work to several hands and be a great benefit to the farmers in that they can buy crush ed limestone (home made) to put on their prairie farms. John Diri- go is figuring on putting a rock crusher at the rock quary just south of town. This and the haul ing of the rock will give employ ment to many hands. Let the slogan be: The streets of Monroe must keep step with the great progress being made in all other lines of improvement. There is no question but what they will be made good as the Live Booster Club is behind the movement. A meeting was held Saturday night and committees were appointed They have been at work and a meeting of Boosters is to be held this, Thursday, evening at the Citi zens Bank. Every live Booster should be ' present. A large field for operation lies to the south east of our city. Salt River can be harnessed and be made to furnish us cheap fuel, cheap power for factories and for an Interurban by which we can reach and place on the market the rich natural re sources between here and Perry. This will give work for hundreds of men and a great era of prosperity will come to this locality and all will be more prosperous. Such en terprises will benefit all classes. Get into the Booster Band Wagon and help turn some of the natural resources into wealth. It will be done some day. Why not not now while you and I can get some of the benefits Surprised. Monday was Miss Delia Smith's birthday. When she returned home after the picture show she found the house in darkness but when she turned the lights on she was astonished to find the room fill ed with members of her Sunday School class. The surprise was complete and a very pleasant time was reported.

Lasley one of our enterpris ing Boosters made a rapid fire speech before the Club on Saturday evening devising a plan to turn the tide of Investors now directed to Florida, and elsewhere, to give them a look in at the brightest jewel in the diadem of the Great Corn Belt Monroe City. His plan was unanimously en dorsed by the entire Booster organ ization of nearly 100 members and every Bank in the City, who will extend to him their most hearty co-operation. His plan of operations will extend through three States, and as this man is a live wire, we may look for results. His efforts will be directed princi pally to Monroe City and vicinity and every citizen of this entire sec tion will feel the effect of it, as well as the entire N. E. portion of this imperial common-wealth. As usual one more evidence that the spirit of enterprise still prevails in our beau tiful and busy City. School Notes.
