As soon as Fred Patterson alighted from the vehicle on his return from the fair, he went direct to the house and called for "mother." Perhaps that question is asked more often than any other in the English lan guage. The instant a boy or girl en ters the house and mother is not there, the question is: "Where is mother?" They may know she is not far distant yet there is a keen satis faction in knowing exactly where to find her. The father comes into the house: he too lookf and asks: "Where is mother?" If she happens to come into the room at that moment he is not surprised, nor does he even want her, he merely wanted to know where she was. It is no laughing matter when mother leaves home and re mains two weeks on a visit. She al ways sits at the head of the table and when she is visiting, nothing tastes half so good as when she cooked it. If she happens to be ill, the vacant seat at the table looks about as large as a 10-acre field to the family. Everyday, every hour, every minute, some little one is asking, "Where is mother?" She may come in and smack him for some mischief, nevertheless she is the most valuable article in the world. Happy indeed are Uoys and girls who ask that, knowing she is somewhere near. Horse Show Colors. It is yet nearly a month before the opening of the fourth annual Inter state Live Stock and Horse show on the spacious grounds of the associa tion in St. Joseph, Mo., but at this early date there are beginning to be seen on the streets of the city many evidences of preparing for the great show. The official colorsof the show, red and white, are already beginning to be seen adorning some of the pleasure equipages that are turned out for drives about the city and there is active preparation to decorate the entire city in these colors before the opening of the show on Sept. 20. Mrs. Henry Pflaumer was taken quite sick the first of the week. Her daughter, Miss Mary, has been quite ill of typhoid forthe past month. The Pfiaumers had engaged a nurse, Miss Ilattie Burtch, of St. Joseph, to care for the girl during her illness, but the nurse was also stricken by sick ness and had to return to her home. Another nurse was secured Tuesday evening. At last reports both were improving Craig Leader. Improving Boys and Girls. In a recent address before the Illinois state farmers' institute, Mrs. II. M. Dunlap, of Champaign county, Ills., said: "I have attended farmers' institutes for the past 10 years, I have been fully impressed that think ing man is seemingly more interested in how to improve his animals and plants than his boys and girls. He wants to know how he can have well bred horses, cattle, sheep, swine and poultry and not so many scrubs: how he can improve his seed corn and en hance the fertility of his land, but he has thought very little of the wonder ful law of heredity and the effect of environment as applied to his own life and that of his boy and girl." Unfortunately for the good of the human race, men and women have seemingly come to believe that they and their children are quite outside the universal law that governs the health of both animal and plant. What Mrs. Dunlap says about the farmer is doubtless true, but the charge is equally applicable to any other class, or the followers of any considerable occupation. Her obser vation applies to the farmer with seeming emphasis simply because his work with plants and animals brings out the contrast more strongly than is true of any other occupation. The automobile is a large iron and rubber contrivance for transforming gasoline into speed, excitement and obituaries. It consists of a handsome upholstered carriage body, mounted on fat rubber tires and containing a gizzard full of machinery, suffering with various ailments. It is the speediest and most stylish form of transportation. It has run one hun dred miles an hour and cost one thou sand dollars a minute. It can trans port seven people from the front porch to the police station, bankruptcy court or the Golden Gate in less time than any other method De Kalb Tribune. Siram Griffith went out to his farm the other day and brought back with him a stalk of corn that is 15 feet in heitrht. There are two well ' j developed ears and the distance from j j the base to the lowest ear is eight ' feet. The soil of imperial Missouri is j i noted for monstrosities of all sorts. : (This stalk of corn is on display at ' Thomson's hardware store Craig Leader.

GREAT CROWDS AT CIRCUS Many People Here Plan to Sec Barnum & Bailey at St. Joseph Monday, September 6. This section will be well represented at St. Joseph on September 6, 1909, when the Barnum & Bailey greatest show on earth exhibits there on that date, for a great many of our citizens have already expressed themselves as having made up their minds to attend. A glance at the list of wonders to be seen with this big show would lead one to believe that the limit in tre mendous size as well as number of novelties to be seen has finally been reached. Barnum & Bailey pre sent this year under their city of 14 acres of tents more things new than have been offered by all other shows in years. "Jupiter, the balloon horse," Karolly's troupe of 10 Hungarian coal black stallions,' the musical elephants, celebrated Konyot troupe of eques trians, seven troupes of foreign acro bots, four troupes of aerialists and hundreds of other arenic novelties all go to complete a circus performance that has never been equalled. The big menagerie has been augmented by the addition of many new strange beasts and is larger than all the zoolo gical gardens in this country com bined. The street parade, so gorgeous and so tremendous in size, beggars de scription and in all is a fair index to the wonderful performances that fol low. Forbes Pick-Ups.
