The Nuttall Encyclopedia
Two contiguous towns on the S. bank of the Missouri River, 280 m. W. of St. Louis, are so called. The larger and more easterly one is the second city of Missouri; an important railway centre, and distributes the agricultural products of a large region; has pork-packing industries and iron manufactures. The smaller, westerly city, is in Kansas, the largest town of that State; has a remarkable elevated railway.
