War Conditions Emphasize the Importance of Poultry.
More animal food for man can be produced through poultry than any other source during the same length of time. It is possible for a hen to produce eight to ten times her weight in eggs during one year. It is also possible for the hen to do all that is necessary for her to do to reproduce herself....
The demand for meat food at home can be reduced to raising poultry and eggs, which will permit beef, pork, etc. to be sent to the army. Women and children can handle the poultry work and in this way be of great help in the production of food, and while the men are away, the family can be supplied with food.
Now is the time to prepare for the year's work with poultry. Therefore we believe everyone should hatch and raise as many chickens as possible. If war continues, they will be needed and if war does not continue, a nice flock of chickens is a valuable asset in any home....
circular, Balancing the Ration for Egg Production, and one, Feeding Chicks of
All Ages, will be sent free upon application. For information on any phase of
the poultry industry, write the Missouri State Poultry Experiment Station,
“Contest Validity of Bonds”
Judge William C. KERCKHOFF and other prominent citizens of the county were in town yesterday looking after the matter of bringing a suit to contest the validity of the present bond issue and to enjoin the County Court from further expenditure of the money derived from the sale of the refunded bonds. The good faith of the William R. COMPTON Investment Co. in purchasing the bonds will also be attacked and they will also be enjoined from making any attempt to sell or dispose of the same. The constitutionality of the law under which the bonds were issued will also be attacked and the validity of the bonds will be attacked because the issue exceeded the constitutional limit of five per cent of the total assessed valuation. The issue will be further attacked on the ground that there was no bonded indebtedness in existence at the time the bonds were refunded, and that the sale of bonds was a pretense and not an actual sale, but was made only upon
the express agreement and understanding that the bonds were to be refunded. In other words it will be charged that the bonds were not salable, and that without an agreement to refund that the bonds could
not have been sold at all, and had not been sold, and were not actually sold.

If war does not come, or lasts but a short time, we can force down the high cost of living. Maximum products properly preserved will increase food supply and relieve distress in time of peace, as well as during months of war.
The plan is to:
Use (a.) all available space in the country and (b.) every vacant lot or part of a lot in the town to grow articles of food that can be canned or stored for further use.
Use the boys and girls, who would otherwise be idle during the spring and summer, older persons not otherwise employed, men and women who want exercise, and in fact everybody who can wield a hoe.
Neither the land nor the labor problem is involved. The plan contemplates taking no now used land or now employed person for this work. Its purpose is to put every idle Missourian to work on the idle land. Give every boy a job. Keep the weeds down. Grow garden truck instead.
The Extension Department of College of Agriculture will:
1. Furnish suggestions as to the best vegetables to plant or raise,
2. Give directions from time to time as to their culture,
3. Arrange for at least one practical and experienced demonstrator in each county who will give actual demonstrations as to the methods of canning and preserving products for future use, and
4. Will provide markets for surplus canned food products.
State Superintendent of Public Schools believes the schools, which belong to everybody,
should lead in this important movement. In each County, a
As the logical head, he has asked the
1. List all available ground, and
2. See that it is planted.
3. See that it is properly cultivated.
Arrange for canning demonstrations at the proper time (through
5. Keep a record of what is done, and how much surplus products are in each neighborhood.
In this work the schools should have the support of the newspapers, clubs, fraternal organizations, banks and commercial clubs, churches, county courts, city councils, boy scouts, campfire girls, and all other organizations of the patriotic Missourians.
We have been talking patriotism. Now we can show it. Wield a hoe, as well as wear a flag! Let us all join in the movement to supply the country with food.

The earthquake last Monday occurred at about p. m. according to our chronometer. When we first noticed it, the sound was very similar to that of rolling a heavy cask over our tin roof and we first supposed this to be a fact until things began to quake.
Everybody got out and the streets were thronged with folks who just came out to see how badly scared the other fellow was. The following account taken from the Globe Democrat gives the more technical features of the subject. The Globe says the shock was the severest since the New Madrid quake and no doubt this is correct, but many people here remember one about 25 years or more ago that seemed equally as severe here as this later one although the shock and quake did not continue so long. The second quake after was very much lighter than the first, but still enough to shock and rock houses.
The first seismic shock was the first violent one experienced in this vicinity since the famous New Madrid, Mo. earthquake of 1811 and 1812. Long distance telephone messages to the Globe Democrat revealed
the tremors were felt generally within a radius of one hundred miles of St.
Louis and even as far north as

Now on this day comes the plaintiff herein, by his Attorney and files his petition duly verified by affidavit, alleging, among other things, that the above named defendant, Emily St. A. CONARD, if she
