Royce Building Burned
Fin in Esisiness -.
Tuesday Kerning' bun, 'v, n',,,? ,IJ Danser.
The unoccupied Uuilding just
cast of the Harris Drug Store on
Park Avenue, owned by W.
K. Royco was destroyed by tire
Tuesday morning. The alarm
was turned in about ;j:i: and the
fire department had a hard tight
to keep the Games from spread
ing. A high wind va9 blowing
to make the flames hotter, and to
add to the danger, there was a
gas explosion on the second floor
of the building occupied by Kim-
brough's pool hall and bowling
alley, just cast of the burned
building. The flames were con
fined to the one building, however
and the only damage dono to the
adjoining buildings was caused
by the explosion.
Mr. Royce had nearly a car
, load of wall paper stored in the
building, which was a total loss.
Dr. Cromwell, the dentist, whose
office is located over the pool hall
safferedsome damage from the
Mr. Royco states that ho had
several thousand dollars worth
of wall paper, furniture, etc., in
the building. The names started
in the upstairs from, some un
known cause, Mr. Royce earn-
Ed some insurance but we have
een unable to learn the amount.

ehsr than any tins this
lho i. vvy rams of the past
week have put the Marais des
Cygnes river higher than it was
at any time during the floods
of last spring. The water Sun
day night was up level with the
rails cn the Mo. Pac track at the
drainage ditch bridge and had it
not been for the ditch the track
would doubtless have been wash

The bridge over the ditch at
the Loeb ranch east of town, was
expected to go out Monday
but was saved.
The duck hunters at the club
houses have given up and gone
home as there is so much water
that they cannot get near the
ducks. The drainage ditch has
clearly demonstrated that it will
carry a large percent of the water
away, as it runs like a inill-race
and whoa the end is reached the
water eompletey covers the lower
bottoms, while the upper bottoms
are almost dry. When the ditch
is finished this water will have
an outlet and there will seldom
be any more big floods.

There is another joke on the
Democracy of this state. One of
the richest bits of patronage
that the Democratic Legislature
of 1907 created, in the belief that
it would be filled by a governor
of that political faith, is the Stale
Banking Bureau, which becomes
operative Jan. 15, 1900. So care
fully prepared was this measure
that it's authors consulted the
calander to make sure that the
bank commissioner provided by
the measure would not be ap
pointed by Gov. Folk, but by his
successor not deeming it pos
sible that that successor would
be a Iyopualican. The banking
bureau will rank in importance
and responsibility with any of
the elective state offices, and
will deprive the secretary of
at&te nearly half the patronage
of his department. West Plains
Reports received by this De
partment from farmers off the
state show that the herds of
dairy cattle that are best manag
ed produce in many cases from
two to three times as much but
ter during the year as does the
average dairy cow of the state,
and this difference largely results
from the best herds holding up
oa their milk production duricg
the winter. "Ve ijnd, the farmers
getting the poor results generally
leod timothy bay, corn fodder
and corn and often not even a
sulJicient amount of these. The
man who is getting good results
has learned that such a tation
will not enable a cow to produce
milk enough to make it profitable.
It is not necessary to buy large
quanities of expensive feed to
make a good ration as it can be
grown on tho farm. If tho prop
er ration is not at hand, or pos
sibly trade some of tho feeds on
The man who gets good results
with cows feeds clover, alfalfa or
cowpea hay for tho roughness,
and takes care that tho cows
have plenty of it. and if ho has
some corn fodder, foods boine of
that in addition daring the day.
If hay of this class is fed, it is all
right to feed a considerable
quantity of corn for grtuu.
The feeds which are generally
fed in this state may ho divided
into two classes. Tho first in
cludes those which are used
mainly to produce fat and whidi
aro lacking in protein which is
receasary to produce milk. In
this clas we have corn, corn fod
der, timothy hay, btraw, millet
and sorghum. The second class
of feeds are those which contaiu
more protein and supply the fxd
necessary to produce milk. In
this class we have c lover, cowpea,
aud alf Jfa. bran, oats, cotton -seed
and lineed meal. A good
daily ration will include feeUs
from both of those c!as;.es and it

ratiea for a cow proJucicg irvaijAvliaissioa 10 evets.
21 to 25 pounds of milk per day
would be all she would eat of
clovrf or cowpea hay, and for
grain from '3 to G pounds of corn
and 3 to 5 pounds bran or oats.
Another fairly good ration for
an ordinary cow is all she will
eat of alfalfa or cow pea hay and
8 to 12 pounds corn. Still an
other could be clover hay as be
fore, corn 0 to 9 pounds and cot
tonseed meal 2 pounds per day.
These rations will be improved
in every ease by feeding corn

Lake park las t night. She was
not missed until about 6 o'clock
when Moore and his daughter
prepared to go to supper.' After
looking and making inquiries for

taken a car for. the Lr.k -Park

Searchers went to the lake
and found Mrs. Moore's hat on

She had fastened a rope around
one of her arms and tied it to a

Rich Hill's volunteer Fire De
parting showed its value Tues
day morning daring tho tire
which destroyed the Royce building-
This fire was located in the
center of a solid block of business
houses and the only damage done
to the buildings on either side
was caused by a gas explosion in
the Lamb building. AViighwiod

Taft, by his justice to the Cath

himself to that great church; he
is ever in demand as a speaker
before Missionary meetings; and
to say he is not a christian or re
ligious man is absurd.
What the people of the United

practical, moral christian life, not
religious creed. The makers cf
the constitution did wisely when
they put no religious test in the

The people can judge from a
