JOURNAL REPORTER" RE
TURNS FROM MISSOURI
From Ttie."1ay's Pally.
M. S. Briggs, Journal reporter, ar
rived home th'.3 morning from the
Ozark country of Missouri, where he
owns a farm and had been looking
after having the wheat crop thresh
ed as well as other business matters.
During his absence, his daughter,
Miss Crete Hriggs looked after the
reporting task and kept the copy
coming to the linotype machines.
Mr. Rriggs does not regard his trip
exactly as a vacation as business
claimed his attention most of the
time he was away. Besides he found
the weather very warm and the at
mosphere quite dry. He says there
was a cooling breeze to alleviate suf
fering from the heat in that country,
however, and the lack of rain there
has not assumed the proportions of
a drouth as yet.
