The recovery stand was seconded by the code authority of the baking industry.

Ne.slor of Glenns Ferry asked Borah if he should comply with an order issued by Sid Graves of Twin Falls to charge housewives a cent more a loaf.

Borah told Nestor to disregard the order, volunteered to supidy legal defense in event of pro.secution and said: "I contend they have no right to direct you to increase the price of your bread.

As result of the distress caused by the searing heat and 'olonged diT spell, the government designated, for relief purposes, more than 1,350 counties in 23 states as emergency' or drought counties.

The loss to growing crops and livestock in the affected area has not been estimated officially, but unofficial estimates placed the total in the hundreds of millions of dollars. A further loss, through severe shortage of winter feed for livestock. has been predicted by agricultural and relief officials unless substantial rain falls soon Weather forecasts gave no sign of a break in the drought. Barren pastures. shortage ot water, and scarcity of fodder have caused forced sale of thousands of head of cattle to the government to be canned for distribution to needy.

A week ago, government purchases had totaled 1,737,596 head in 18 states. Another 199,000 head had been condemned as unfit for consumption, and killed on the ranges. Federal relief and farm administration officials geared the cattle purchasing machinery to a possible load of 10,000.000 head. The Bureau of Agricultural nomics in Washington described the situation confronting the sheep industrv as well as that of other livestock, as "the most serious ever known." Farm administratior relief officials pushed plans to purchase 5 000.00 sheep. Milk prices were increased in some parts of the drought area- in some cases as much as 50 per cent in the price of delivered milk Burned pasture land, shortage of forage and water, forced dairymen to decrease the size of Iheir herds, and to purchase feed.

Private industry estimates placed the corn crop at 1,658 million bushels, a reduction of 455 000,000 bushels from the official estimate a month earlier. The corn production indicitcd smallest crop in S3 years SI average was 2.516 million bush els. i The present condition of crops forage and livestock in Missouri lows: L-nited States Weather Bn reau crop bulletin 90 per cent of corn over the state I without ears.

The local committee urges every Pettis County farmer to hear Mr. O'Neill at Odessa if possible. Another matter discussed was! a letter from K. W.

Brown, president of the Missouri Bureau Federation, to Fk M. president of the Pettis County Farm Bureau. He stated that his attention had been called to a series of meetings to be held next week under the auspices of the Missouri State F'arm Debt Adjustment Committee, w'hich w'ill be at tended by Chester G. Starr, field man for the committee and also by John Q. Adams, of the Farm Credit Administration.

conferences." he writes, "will provide opportunity for members of county debt adjustment committees and others interested to familiarize themselves with the work. A special feature of the program will be an explanation of new F'razier-Lemke law. "The meeting in our district," he states, "will be held in the circuit court room, Jeffer.son City. Wednesday. August 8.

at one I think it would be fine if you and some of your other leaders would attend as representatives of the Pettis County F'arm Bureau. As au organization, the farm bureau has had an important part in debt adjustment work, and it is important. I feel, (hat we keep ourselves informed regarding the progress that is being made." The members of the Pettis County conciliatory committee has nified its intention of the meeting at Jefferson City, as, will several others among them Mr The Board of Directors of the; Farm Bureau have called a meeting for 2 next Saturday ternoon, in the assembly room ofj the court house, to hear a report from the committee as to the Frazier-Lemke bill and the explanation of it given at Jefferson City. It is desired that there be a large attendance at this meeting. by Si ate Flisiorical So- 'riety, Floyd C.

Shx)emaker, secretary. Missouri history fails to offer many careers as strange as that of Dr. John Gano Bryan, whose life as a doctor, miner, business man and political power came to a close at St. Louis on Angus, 10, I860, seventy-four years ago this vveek. Because he chose to remain in the background rather than run for public office, and because he refused to allow his name to appear in the newspapers, only the most meagre information is available on his life, yet a formidable political opponent, F'rank P.

Blair, said that Dr. influence was greater than that of any dozen men in Missoii ri. Dr. Bryan '''as a native of Northampton County, North Carolina, and though the date of his birth is often given as 1788, other accounts indicate that he was born in 179S. Part of his childhood was spent in the Greed district, 12 miles from Louisville, Kentucky, and at an early age he entered Transylvania University at Lexington, later attending medical college at Philadelphia.

About 1809 John Gano Bryan is said to have started mining lead at Flazel Run in Ste. Genevieve County, but when the War of 1812 broke out he enlisted in the militia as a surgeon, serving under William H. Ashley and Col. Daniel M. Boone.

For a time he seems to have practiced medicine in Ste. Genevieve with Dr. Henry Lane and Dr. I.ewis F. Linn, but soon removed to Caledonia.

From there he went to Potosi in 1829, contimiing his there until his removal to St. Loiii.s about 1853. who agreed with him, he was mild, gi'ntle and charming, but those opposed him found him firm and resolute, if not dogmatically intolerant. Fie acted as surgeon at many duels, and had a great reputation for handling pistols and It is claimed that in 1822, his jet black hair turned w'bjte over night after a duel in which he believed he mortally wounded his opponent. Though much of Dr.

was taken up with business enterprises. he found time to actively promote education. He helped start an academy at Potsoi, the Kemper schools in St. Louis County and at Boonvilie, and Dr. Joseph N.

Missouri Medical College at St. Louis. He w'as also interested in the founding of the University of Missouri, and in 1829 was one of the five commissioners located the University at Columbia. Because few' records remain today, it is difficult to gage accurately Dr. political influence in Missouri, but there are evidences that it was considerable.

He w'as an ardent Whig, and later a and numbered among his friends and aciiuaintances nearly all the governors, senators and judges of Missouri during his time, and is said to have been frequently consulted as to the candidates for these offices. Though Dr. is described as an extensive slave holder, and a kind mild master, he bitterly upheld the cause of slavery, and is said to have outfitted 1.150 men who served under ex-Senator David R. Atchison K'ansas in 1856, in an effort to make that territory pro-slavery. The fact that so few details Dr.

life are known may But Dr. cal practice did not limit his other varied activities, including lead and iron mining. There is a story told that Col. John Smith 1, a notorious land-grabber and famous duellist, laid claim to one of mineral lands. Smith pro posed to compromise, but Bryan refused so Smith brought suit.

However, each time the suit came up for trial, Smith asked that it he continued, and after the seventh continuance, Bryan demanded that it be allowed to come to trial or be dismissed. When Smith refused, Bryan struck him in the face. Everyone expected that Smith would challenge the doctor to a duel, but the challenge was never made, Bryan himself had considerable reputation as a duelist. To those extensive to his refusal to allow of be his name to appear in Missouri newspapers, though he helped numerous editors start publications in Missouri. among them F.
