THE LAND OF
HID IN THE HEART OF A GREAT
AREA IK SOUTHERN PART
OF OLD MISSOURI.
There is a portion of the states
en. braced in what was once the Lou
isiana purchas" tliat is little known
o the average resident of th north
ern states, and which covers a large
area in the states of Missouri and
Arkansas. This is that portion which
is generally spoken of as "the
This area embraces practically all
of the southern portion of Missouri
from St. Loui ve! to the stale line
and from Sedalia south into the
rtate of Arkansas, although the
Oi-.ark mountains themselves occupy
but a small part of the country, they;
having their highest point near the
l.iwii of Springfield, where the sur-t-
t i ; i dines are full of historic inci
ibms of the early days in the south
west and of the civil war. j
The country is beautiful and a;-;
tractive in many ways to one whose'
love of nature gives them an ap
preeiation of the charm of the- hill
country. a;ul the chief drawback is
the reach ins of these points, as travel
over the lines of railroad is little'
better than walking uuu rougher. !
It is first noticeable that the land
of the Ozarks is being approached by:
the increasing rocky nature of the
soil and as one travels southward
across the '"show-nie" state, the
panorama of ever-increasing hills and
thicl er growth of wild wood bespeaks
the fact that you are in a part nf
tli- real unknown America. Through :

SUFFERS LOSS OF
KEG OF SPIRITS
Local Man Loses Choicest Whiskey
That Was Distilled in Elue Grass
Region cf Kentucky
One of the residents of the city
has suffered a rather costly loss, ac
cording to stories that have leaked
out concerning the passing of the
contents of a keg- filled with the choi
cest spirits, distilled in the heart of
the blue grass regions of Kentucky.
From what can be learned of the
affair it seems that the owner of the
aforesaid keg of old rare whiskey
had secured it in the flays before the
prohibition wave and had stored it in
the cellar of his home where he ex
pected to use it for flavoring pur
poses in the household arid for colds
and snake bites and other us and
ailments for which rare old bourbon
is a remedy. The fact of the posses
sion of the keg of old spirits had evi
dently reached other ears and the
plot for the securing of the whiskey
lerl to the diggirg of a tunnel under
the cellar of the house and tapping
the keg of its contents. The owner
was much surprised on viiting the
cellar to examine- the keg to find that
the sparkling liquid had been drawn
from the containers and carted away.
The tunnel was a r.eat piece of work
and ran for quite a distance from a
growth of brush into the callar.
