Page Foot NIGHTS COOL FOR THE CORN But as a Whole Last Week Was Fa Torable for Crops. The weekly weather and crop bul letin Issued by the U. S. Weather Bureau In Columbia says the weather for the last seven days in Missouri was generally favorable for farm work. The report follows: "Owing principally to cool nights, the week averaged cooler than nor mal; but the percentage of sunshine was near the average. Showers fell on two days; they were heavy in the southern tier of counties, moderate along the northern slope of the Ozarks, and generally less than one half inch over the remainder of the state. "The weather, as a rule, was gen erally favorable for farm work. Rain, however. Is needed in northern sec tions for pastures, late potatoes, some late corn, and for plowing, par- ticuiarly north of a line irom bum- van county to Marion wunij. "While the nights have been rath- er too cool for corn to do its best, still it is progressing nicely; and the bulk of the crop will be safe In thre...

Miss Fern Helen Rusk, as sistant in the history ot art at the University of Missouri presents proof that the pioneer really spent some time in this state and that he further more lived for a time at Boonslick, near Franklin. Miss Rusk In her book, "George Caleb Bingham, Mis souri Painter," tells of Bingham's early life near Boonville, and how the young George Bingham watched Chester Harding, an earlier painter, as the latter painted the picture of Daniel Boone. An extract from Miss Rusk's book follows: "In the summer of 1820 Chester Harding ,who had come from St. Louis in the previous year, made his first trip out into the wilderness of Missouri to paint the notable pioneer, Daniel Boone...

The entrance of America Into the war and the proba bility that It soon would be lending the allies tremendous aid in the aerial department ot the straggle has led Germany to re-organize and strengthen Its own aviation branches materially, according to The Temps. This re-organization does not date exclusively from the break with the United States, but rather from the battle of the Somme, but It has been accelerated and intensified by the re ports that hundreds, if not thousands. of airplanes with the corresponding aviators to man them, are soon to be supplied to the Entente forces.

STORY OF THE ROUTE It is the Road That Made Missouri Originally the Boon's Lick. Not even Columbia residents will more appreciate the new Daniel Boone Tavern than will tourists on the Old Trails Koad from St. Louis and Kansas City. There has been some misunder standing of late as to whether or not Columbia is still on a cross state road. This is due to the fact that Jefferson City enthusiasts made a fight recently to have 'their town des ignated as the one through which the chief state highway would pass. It has been proed that Jefferson City was merely trying to get a road through that place that could com mand attention from the government when road money was divided, and that it was not the town's purpose to get a place on the Old Trails Road. Men Who Jhnc Aided. Naturally, in all booster move ments, there are certain...

They were representative men of the town at that time. Their purpose was to discuss a problem which, even in these days, was considered an important one the need of a new hotel. Their chairman was Colonel W. F. Switzler. In the audience was J. L. Stephens, and his son, B. W. Stephens, then a boy. In February, on the night of the twenty-ninth in 1916 In the new Boone County Courthouse, which stands on the same ground on which the old courthouse stood, another meeting to consider the prospects of a new hotel was held. This time, it was not merely a meeting of dis cussions. It was not ended with a hope but rather with a certainty. A new hotel was assured in Columbia and a tonus of $20,000 was sub scribed by many of C...

The work of building up a notel business is not a new one to Mr. Leonard.
