Grand Old Missouri

We celebrate “more” Missouri today with an essay from the May 14, 1908 Skidmore New Era:

Grand Old Missouri
Missouri, considering the well being of every man, woman and child, is probably the richest spot of ground on the face of the earth, says the Humanville Star-Leader. Missouri people can buy more, travel more, eat more and throw away more and notice less than any other three millions the sun shines on. Missouri subscribes for more magazines, supports more lecture courses, takes more newspapers, pays more for the superior things of life, meets the conditions with more ease than any other state in the Union.
