 - THE NEOSHO TIMES. oooooooooooooooooo...
THE NEOSHO TIMES. oooooooooooooooooo NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES. ooooooooooooooooo« R. C. Friend, deputy revenue col lector of this district came in from Racine today with a pocket full o wheat. This wheat has showed a gov ernment test of 64 pounds to the bushel, just as it came from the separator, and averaged 35 bushels to the acre. This wheat was grown on land that sold a few years ago for $35 an .acre.—Joplin News-Herald, July 30, There is a good deal of pow wowing among the boys about the Fords They're all wondering if there's going to be a raise. A man can stanc for flour and bacon and sugar to soar, but when he's been fighting it hard, for two or three years, to scrape up the money for a jitney, and then as the goal is about in sight, for Henries to take a jump that would be a little short of Hell. — Lamar Democrat. -Philip H;— -Graves; — Granby's—dM penso of Blackstone, was see one day last week carrying a head ,of cabbage down the street towards his place of abode. Of course there was nothing particularly strange about this coincidence, but from the fact ,hat Mr. Graves is a single man it excited the curiosity of some of his 'riends who are still wondering what ic did with it. Suffice to say it has never materialized or been heard of since. — Granby Miner. Jacob W. Hawk residing 1 mile northwest of this city, who is going on 90 years of age, walked to this city Wednesday. He has been a resident of Barry county for about 75 years and delights to talk of the old timers and times when he was a young man. He told of carrying the mail from this city to Forsythe, Taney county, when there were no roads but paths. He said the first postoffice was at the mouth of Flat Creek. That there was no Galena, Stone county, then. He also spoke of a mail route running from this city to Southwest City, McDonald county^ He .said—Ben Hudson, the contractor on the Cassville and Forsythe mail route attempted to carry the mail one trip but got lost and could not find his way through by the paths that were traveled and returned without taking the mail through.—Cassville Democrat. Many of the farmers in this and n adjoining counties seem to fail ;o fully appreciate what the State of Missouri is doing for them in placing among them a district agricultural agent who gives all of his ime to them. Mr. Mote of Aurora is •eady to answer the call of any 'armer in Southwest Missouri and lupply him with any information in lis power or within reach of the Extension" department of the state ollege of agriculture. He is at the iervice of the farmers and desires hat he be given an opportunity to erve them. During the past week ilr. Mote has inspected hundreds of acres of wheat in this county and graded and classified it so that it an be advertised as good seed wheat, where it really is good seed. But he was very much disappointed hat so few farmers asked that their vheat fields be inspected.—Cassville Republican. Divers and sundry complaints have ome to our ears the past week regarding the Granby and Neosho road. It is in a deplorable condition everyone admits, but whose duty is t to cure the defect. We are informed that Granby has a road district ommittee'and likewise Neosho. But hese committees roads in proper don't keep the condition. Why ? Iranby claims that they have no road funds, while Neosho claims the big end of the road in question is not in her district. Thereby hangs he tale. As a citizen and having a deep interest in Granby and her people, we have investigated the dis- rict question some and learned that our road district extends to the road or township line just west of the county farm. This being true, it is up to Granby's road district committee Uo see that this road is put n first-class condition. When they do this, they should see that Neosho proceed to come across with their end of the road and put in the same •ood condition.—Granby Miner-Mis- »ourian. Granby was thrown into another age of excitement Wednesday even- ng when the sad tidings announced he death of Fred Sitler who had (hot himself i nthe face with a shot run, blowing, off the top of his lead. He was at the home of his mother, Mrs. Sarah Sitler, in south Granby, who opened the door just in time to see him pull the trigger and fall to the ground. Frederick Henry Sitler was born in Grawby, Mo., March 2, 1883 ,and has lived here all his life. At the time of his death he wss 84 years, 4 months and 23 days old. At the age .of 4 years he became afflicted with epilepsy and—has—suffered—from-this—malady till his mind and body became so emaciated and infirm that he couk not be held responsible for his acts Wednesday morning he visited his brother, Frank, at the mines and informed him that some one hac poisoned his dog "Rover." This faithful friend had guarded Fred -under many trying circumstances, and in all of his trials and tribulations Rover kept a vigil watch*over him, and permitted neither person or beast to molest him. It is earnestly believed that the dea^i of this faithful friend is the immediate cause of the sad ending of Frederick Sittler. Notwithstanding a mother's love has kept a close vigil over her son all these years, yet, his diseased brain had fancied that his dog Rover was the only true friend he had.—Granby Miner-Missourian. GOVERNMENT WILL ASK $5,000,000,000 FOR WAR New Estimates Prepared by McAdoo —Bill May Be Further Revised. Washington, July 24.—Secretary McAdoo today prepared new war estimates for Congress very much in excess of those already presented, and which will necessitate raising revenue not contemplated when the senate finance -committee revised the war tax btth-The bill probably will be further revised. The government, basing an estimate on the needs of the army and navy, wants the war tax bill to authorize an additional $5,000,000,000. Secretary McAdoo will appear before the finance committee late today to explain the treasury's needs, based on the reforms of the army end navy. Whether the $5,000,000,000 would be raised by a bond issue has not been determined. While no official intimation of the source of the new revenue was given before Secretary McAdoo went before the finance committee, there were indications that it would be drawn primarily from excess profits and estates' taxes, probably some in creases in income taxes and minor increases in miscellaneous taxes. Official-figures are said to show that excess profits in the United States are now at the rate of $5,000,000,000 a year. Secretary McAdoo asked Chairman Simmons of the finance committee to withhold reporting the bill to the senate as had been planned for today until he could confer with the senators. The new situation threw all the plans for pushing the war tax bill awry. Senate managers had no idea when the big measure for raising the revenues for condict- ing the war would be moved forward. Before Secretary McAdoo appear:d before the finance committee it was understood that the five billion dollars represented the estimate of ;he war and navy departments and ;hat he would propose an additional )illion dollars to be raised by taxation and seek authority for an ad ditional credit of $2,500,000,000. Whether the latter sum was to be in bonds certificates of indebtedness was not disclosed. RULING ON FEED LAW. Columbia, Mo., July 24.—Attorney eneral Frank W. McAllister has issued an opinion on the new feed law permitting the choice of printed tag or painted label on bag or package, and requiring the naming of each special ingredient by common name, stating kind of screenings and defin- te name of each sort of seed or grain used in the mixture. Millions of dollars worth of mixed feeds sold annually come under this Act regulating the sale of livestock and poultry -feeds. WOMEN'S WOES Neosho Women Are Finding Relief at Last. It does seem that women have more than a'fair share of the aches and pains that afflict humanity; they must "keep up," must attend to duties in spite of constantly aching >acks, or headaches, dizzy spells, bearing-down pains; they must stoop over, when to stoop means torture. They must walk and bend and work with racking pains and many aches "rom kidney ills. Keeping the kidneys veil has spared thousands of women much misery. Read of a remedy for "kidneys only that is endorsed by people you know. Mrs. T. J.
