H 4 J3.C (sons Monroe City, Missouri harmacy, Asks for Investigation E L Sanford, chairman of the State Highway Board, gives out the following for publication in regard to charges made that the board was being dominated by politics: The Board invites a full investiga tion of this charge. All of the members of the Board were present at the meeting in Jef ferson City Saturday and all join in asking that judgement be suspended until such time as the Board reports in detail the work of the Depart ment for the period ending Decem ber 1. 1918i. This report will show that, notwithstanding abnormal con ditions notwithstanding the enor mous task of organizing and setting in motion the machinery of road building in 114 counties, there is nothing to be ashamed of and much to be proud of, in the accomplish ments of the Board; and there is Executor's Notice Notice is hereby given that let ters testamentary on the estate of Mary A. McAtee, deceased, were granted, to the undersigned on the 2nd day of December, 1918, by the Probate Court of Monroe County, Missouri All persons having claims 'against said estate are required to exhibit them for allowance to the executor within six months after date of said letters or they may be precluded from any benefit of said . estate, and if such claims be not exhibited within one year from date of this publication they will . be forever barred. Dated this 2nd.dayofDecember.1918 Joseph C McAtee, Executor. Attest: Penn Brace, Judge of Probate. Meriwether & Meriwether, , Attys. for Estate. DR. A. T. VVADDILL, Veterinarian MONROE CITY, MO. SOS . Mala at. ath Ph every reason to believe that even the most sanguine expectation of the most enthusiastic road advocate will be realized. There has been no politics in the Board. All the politics even re motely affecting the Department has been the occasional injection of the word "politics" in newspaper re ports. Our Board has always work ed to secure the co-operation of all the people in building a system of State Roads that will touch every county in the State. To succeed, this co-operation was necessary Therefore we ask that you be not influenced by inspired publications -that you await the official report of the work of the Department, and then form your own judgement. We assure you that we have not been lax; that we have built . every mile of road possible under the cir cumstances; have approved every proposed road project, and that we have properly and judiciously car ried out the work outlined.' And now it develops that Ger many's wail for food is another piece if deception. It is true that the masses need more food but it is also true that the army reserve stores, when placed at the disposal of the people, will give them food enough to last till April As a part of the peace settlement, they should be compelled to - open these stores at once, first, because the people need them, and, second because G ermany should be allowed to re tain no military; stores It was recently charged that a Kirksville minister, who made monthly visits to Moberly, was also a monthly customer of the saloons of that city, giving as an excusi for for his conduct that he was acting on the advice of his physician, from which it may appear that Moberly bo ose is . possessed of exceptional medical properties Go to Miss Belle Johnson" for high-grade enlargements. - Mothers who have had sons killed in France do not fel I i k- making a triumphant tour of Europe. To them the war was a terrttl reality, and receptions. bai-que's and cheer ing multitudes have n place iii the heart-rending role ihey played in it. An estimr.te nude, by experts have it figured out the farmers, dur ing the month of Octobfr. were paid $120,000,000 per week for live stock used for meat purposes We are not in agreement with those rewspapers that take the ground that Henry Ford will fail in his effort to establish a national weekly newspaper. Mr. Ford, it should be remember, has enough money to bribe people all over the country to read his paper. The best evidence that the ex Kaiser has not become entirely harmless is the fact that the Dutch government is still afraid of him. Organize Food Production The' government, it is announced, ' will soon give out a program for an organized movement to increase the food supply. The success won in the Liberty Bond, Red Cross, and War Work drives ought to teach us a lot about organizing food production. These drives were put over by going from1 house to house and asking people' to give, the ground being well pre pared by newspaper advertising. Now let the government handle the food production in the same way. Every farmer in the country should be visited by some repre sentative of the local organization of business men. Personal inter views will obtain co-operation ftom many people where you would not get it from agitation at public meet ings. The organizations conducting these canvasses should find out from each mau whnt obstacles ex ist that prevent him from raising bigger crops. If it is lack of farm machinery ard tools, arrangements could be made in a great many cases to share the use of such ma chinery with neighbors. If a man needs more capital for a legitimate extension of his business, and if he has good security, he should get the funds. If be needs more labor, he shonld be shown that the govern ment employment services and other agencies will care for bis needs. Frequently the only thing stand ing in the way of a bigger corp is the conservatism characteristic of many men. The hesitating farmer should be assured that the com munity stands back of him in the effort to increase food production. After that pledge is made, it should be rigidly kept, and the farmer should not be left in the lurch for lack of needed equipment or labor. A nervy crook named Stewart walked into a Kansas City bank not long ago and handed in a check for $2,500 He was a stranger and the name on the check was not the name of anybody who had money in the bank. Nevertheless, the teller handed out the $2,500. Explaining it to the court after his arrest Ste wart said: "Bold things always succeeded, your Honor." Up to a certain point they may, but Stewart got five years in the Penitentiary, and the Kaiser is in Holland. 1 H imeto Jitie COMES EVERY DAY IS IT merely a duty for you or is it a pleasure as well?
