PLANS FOR A STALLION
Some time since E. Knell issued a
challenge for a race between the trotting stallions owned
in Missouri, none barred. The idea was to furnish a
desirable attraction for the Knell Fair for this year, as
there would be wide interest and he meant to enter
Since then there has been much said in
the stock papers of the state in regard to such a race
and two horse owners have come forward to accept the
challenge. These men suggest, however, that the race
should be over the state fair tract at Sedalia.
Mr. Knell has been in such poor health
for over a month that he has paid little attention to the
subject, but has so far recovered this week that he took
the matter up today and accepted the propositions which
had been made and put up a $250 forfeit in the hands of
Norman J. Coleman of St. Louis, president of the state
In accepting the suggestions of those
writing him, Mr. Knell states that he would naturally
rather have the race come off in Carthage, as he desires
to see the Carthage fair association profits by the
benefits which would accrue from the race on their

Then there was this guy who thought the
ladies admired his physic because he over heard
one say to the other, "Look at him, what a
waste." Most folks in this part of the
county grew up bein aware that avoidable
waste was not a good thing.
Im sure there are those
who still feel guilty "bout fillin" the
bathtub more than half full. Leavin a light
on when no one is in the room sets some folks
off. The saying "take what ya want but
eat what ya take" is ingrained in most from
the time they are old enough ta sit at the table.
Course common sense does
have ta come into play. Runnin the last bit
of rubber off the tires might end up with a
blowout that wastes the whole car. Sometimes
those treasures are just junk.
This is some fact, but mostly,

To Your Good
By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: You have said
that calcium is important for everyone, certainly
for growing children and teens. I know people who
will not give their children milk because of the
hormones used in cows. They dont give them
calcium supplements either. What is your feeling
about this, and do you think these hormones bring
about early puberty? -- E.H.
ANSWER: Dairy products are the
best sources of calcium. If people shun dairy
products, then they must find alternate calcium
supplies. In youth, bones are rapidly growing and
storing calcium. Young bones that are
shortchanged of calcium are destined for problems
like osteoporosis later in life.
An 8-ounce glass of milk has
300 mg of calcium. One slice of cheese contains
from 200 mg to 270 mg. Foods with this much
calcium are hard to come by. Childrens
daily requirement is 1,200 mg to 1,500 mg.
Alternate sources include: 3
ounces of sardines with bones, 325 mg; 1 cup of
spinach, 138 to 240; half a cup of navy/lima
beans, 50; 1 ounce of almonds, 70. Parents are
not going to get children to live on sardines and
As for the hormone controversy,
I respect peoples concerns. I, for one, do
not share those concerns. Parents who are adamant
about banning dairy products for their children
have to provide calcium for them in some other
