A Great High School Growth Another cheering phase of Missouri affairs Is contained In the showing that the attendance at the high schools of the state ha, almost clou bled In the past ten years. A decade ago this class of schools had 2.1,888 students, while now the dally rolls show more than forty-three thousand boys and girls taking the regular course, of study. There has been an Increase In popu lation during that time, but thl, growth Is not so largo In proportion a, tho Increased school attendance, It Is plain that the value of educa tion a, a training for whatever future work the Missouri boy or girl Intend, doing Is better understood today than ever before. Then, too, our high school, are of fering more practical courses than were provided ten years ago. Voca tional training scarcely had a start In those earlier days, while now It Is offered In almost every county of the state where the high school work Is moderately well organized. The stu denta are finding, and their parents are becoming convinced, that the young person who falls to remain In high school Is losing four years of the disciplining of mind and body alike which will be needed before the am bltlous worker has been long In the activities of life. Hut there has been other Increase In this time than attendance. Tlio state has more than doubled the number of Its high schools. Tho same I, true of Its teachers. Equipment Ix also far better and more cxtenslvo now than tho high school students of earlier years were privileged to use. The march of education In Missouri Is forward, and the pace I, swift. Worth Knowing. An Interesting booklet entitled "lloost Missouri," and announced a, a prelude to the 1013 "Ited Hook," Is being Issued by the State llureau of Labor statistics. The bulletin an nounces the "booster" pamphlet to be Issued by the bureau and the In formation It will contain to attract persons to Missouri to make their home. As has been stated In these columns, this booklet will contain pictures from Adair county and des criptive literature telling of the at tractions of Adair county. The prelude contains portions of the federal report on agricultural statistics of Missouri from which tho following Interesting tlgures are gleaned: Number of farms 227,221 Native white farmers 239,111 Foreign born white 11,407 Negro and non-white 3,ixio Farms under .1 acres. , 455 I to 1) acres 8,501 K) to in acres 10,710 20 to 41) acres 47,398 no to tin acres 74,178 100 to 174 acres 80,020 17.') to 259 acre 32,109 200 to 4!iu acres 111,812 500 to 099 acres a,427 1,000 acres and over Ml Farms operated by on iters 102,28.1 Operated by tenants 82,0.71 Operated by managers 2,000 "Abe on Advertising."

Review of the Realty Transactions of Holt County tor the Year 1913. There are tome people wJio will not set at a table If there are thirteen plates; neither will some people start on a Journey on the thirteenth df the mtnth. Nor will they sit In a room where there are thirteen chairs, nor will they buy a dress consisting of thirteen yards, for fear It will be used for a shroud for some member of the family within the year of Its purchase. To a greater or less dc gree some people will look upon tho number thirteen with suspicion. The year Just passed, ending with thirteen, while It had It., drouth, and other misfortunes along various lines, Holt county ha, not suifcred In real estate business, but on the contrary, It wa, the greatest In the history of the county, reaching a total of (2, :i7ti,'01, notwithstanding the fad the year had "1.1" In It. The nearest approach to these llgurc, wa, In II'IO, when tho total warranty and mitt claim transactions totalled (2,159,092, and In 1909 they reached (2,052,ixi3. During the jear 1U13, there were coo warranty ami itilt claims Hied, with a total value of (2,370,101: an average value of (.1,550. There were 417 trust deeds lllcd, Involving (952, ixi5; average value, (1,950. There was a total of (3i)3,085 loaned on chattel mortgages, averaging $10.1 to each loan. An especially encouraging feat ure of the real estate business during the year Is In the fact, that the re leases on trust deeds was within (132,"0i) of the total valuo of the trust deeds lllcd, the total releases footing up JlO.WW. There has been some unusually largo deals during the year, and they Indicate a steadiness In value, with no Indications whatever that the valuo of Holt county lands are on the decline. At evidence of this we give the following as some of the large deals during the year: Illlby, John 8., WOO acres Ml, 000 Hrldgeman.J. F loo a 10,200 Itaer. Oeorire. 1(10 a . ... 18.400 Carpenter, 0.
