American Homes on Verge of Decay [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 2 February 1909
AMERICAN HOMES ON VERGE OF DECAY Dr. Ellwood, in Kansas City Address, So Pictures Divorce Evil. CITES THE DECLINE OF ROME Unless Change Comes, One Marriage in Two Will Be Broken. KANSAS CITY, Oct. 22. “If present tendencies continue, I believe the world will see the time when the American family, and all American civilization with it, will pass away.” Prof. Charles A. Ellwood of the University of Missouri made this statement Tuesday night in his lecture on “Problems of the American Home,” in the Y. W. C. A. rooms, 1024 Baltimore avenue. His audience was composed entirely of women. Startling figures about divorce were given. “The basis for this remarkable statement is the divorce statistics,” Prof. Ellwood continued. “Statistics show the American family is the most unstable family on earth. In 1885, Congress passed a law providing for the collection of divorce statistics. This showed that in 1886, there were 508 divorces granted in England; 6,100 in France; 6,200 in Germany and 23,40...

Russian Woman Plans an Adamless Eden [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 2 February 1909
RUSSIAN WOMAN PLANS AN ADAMLESS EDEN Mme. Davidoff Will Establish One in New York. NEW YORK, Oct. 22. New York is to have an “Adamless Eden.” Mme. Davidoff, a native of Russia, but now a resident of New York city, is establishing an experimental farm at Belle Crest, which will be operated by women. Men will be barred from the greenhouses, where fruits and flowers are to be grown every month in the year by aid of electricity. While similar experiments have been made by this and other governments Mme. Davidoff believes her experiments will prove more successful than those carried on by the bureau of plant industry of the Department of Agriculture. Mme. Davidoff is a writer for magazines. She says the experiments will be based on the theory that the growth of vegetable matter, which ceases at sundown, will continue through the night if proper artificial light is supplied to stimulate the developing power of plants. Fruits and flowers that are grown in this section only in the spring an...
P. O. Clerks Refuse to Moisten Sta [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 2 February 1909
P. O. CLERKS REFUSE TO MOISTEN STAMPS Women Muzzled with Fashionable Veils Denied Accommodation. CINCINNATI, Oct. 22. “Don’t ask the stamp man to lick your stamps.” So run the signs posted today in the retail stamp windows of the post office. “It’s this way,” said a clerk. “We just haven’t got the time to lick all the stamps that people ask us to dampen for them. We are too busy. For instance, some of the women all togged out in their fineries and veils buy stamps and then ask us to do the licking. You see, some of the women wearing these new-fagled veils tied in a Gordian knot back of their head, or under their ears or some place, I do not know exactly where, and they can’t get the veils undone to lick the stamps. But I have sworn off licking stamps.” “But you didn’t really lick the stamps with your tongue even when you accommodated folks?” “’Course not. We have dampened sponges for the purpose.”

Abruzzi on Way Here, Rome Thinks [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 2 February 1909
ABRUZZI ON WAY HERE, ROME THINKS Has With Him $60,000 in Jewels as Gift for Miss Elkins. ROME, Oct. 22. The Duke of the Abruzzi’s whereabouts is absolutely unknown here, but it is fully expected that he will soon turn up in America. A report from Milan states that he has bought $60,000 worth of jewels from a Turin firm, which had brought them from Paris especially for his inspection. These, it is surmised, are intended as a wedding gift. Before leaving his ship, the Regina Elena, the Duke presented each officer with a pair of gold jeweled sleeve links. The newspapers were published contradictory reports as to his present location, and all evidently are mere conjecture. All information is refused at his house near Turin and at the Ministry of Marine. Mrs. Oliphant’s declaration that no engagement exists provokes mirth here. Instructed in Catholicism. It is stated here that Miss Katharine Elkins has had private instruction in the Catholic religion, and has already been secretly receiv...
Since 'O8. the Missourian Has Been Dedicated to 'Covering' News Field [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 2 February 1909
Since '08, The Missourian Has Been Dedicated to 'Covering' News Field First edition of the newspaper, now the Columbia Missourian, was issued September 14, 1908 as the University Missourian. The Business office was in Academic Hall, and the printing was done by E. W. Stephens Publishing Company. The project was an important part of the newly born School of Journalism. The newspaper was founded “for the training of students in journalism.” According to an early editorial, “it is the laboratory, the clinic, the practice school…In the pursuance of this purpose it will be necessary for the University Missourian to cover the entire field, not limit itself to University news, in order that the training the students receive will be sufficiently broad to be valuable…” The Columbia of 1908 differed greatly from the Columbia of today. Then for example the city had a population of 9,500. Although a road-building program was under way, there were only four miles of paved streets-enough, perhaps...

Build a Weir on Creek [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 2 February 1909
ENGINEERS BUILD A WEIR ON CREEK Dam-Like Device Will Aid in Studying Methods of Irrigation. Senior class in Civil Engineering of the University of Missouri, under the direction of Professor T. J. Rodhouse, built a weir on Grindstone creek, two miles southeast of Columbia, to be used by students in course in irrigation. The weir is a device, like a dam, to measure the flow of water of the stream. It will tell how much water is necessary to irrigate a given amount of land. This is the first time that engineering students here have had a weir to aid in their study of irrigation. If the first proves to be of practical value, another will be built on Hinkson creek.

Soaker' Bricksi in Paving May Bring City Suits [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 2 February 1909
“SOAKER” BRICKS IN PAVING MAY BRING CITY SUITS Property Owners Preparing to Resist Payment of Taxes on Ground That the Work is Not Properly Done. F. W. NIEDERMEYER, ONE OF THEM, POINTS OUT DEFECTS First Freezing Will Cause Crumbling, is the Complaint. Litigation may result from the protests registered by residents of Columbia against the manner in which street paving is being done. Two property owners are said to be preparing to resist payment of the special tax levied to pay for this work, and others, it is said, will follow suit, involving thousands of dollars in revenue. The complaint is based in part upon the quality of brick used, some of them being designated as “soakers.” These, property owners say, are of inferior quality, and will crumble when freezing sets in. F. W. Niedermeyer, one of those who expects to resist payment, said to a reporter for the University Missourian when questioned about it: Says Bricks Are Inferior. “I was slow about making any protest because I feare...
