is by far the most vulnerable candidate

If he were out of the way his place
would bo filled by a much stronger

transpire that the members of the coun-

Mister F.niTF.it: I am not a book
lcrnt man nor am I given to letters,
but, I w.-.nt my say about this iiifurnal
tax law of Missouri and tho Democrats
has int itouto us. Talk about its do
ing yiobody any harm but them as don't
pay their taxes, I ean tell you it is no
such thing. I know too neighbors who
paid taxes on their lands for years, and
as they was like most of us they paid
little attention to the numbers on their
roceits. All they cared for was to pay i
their taxes and had no suspision they
lived in a laud of sharks where the least
motion in deep water might ruin them. '
They know what section they lived ou
and paid little attention to ranges.
Now it happened them rceuits give tho
rong numbers and I hey was in fact
paying on some land several miles on".
After whilo their land was sold for tax
es ami when these men como to tho
t'ourt their tax receits was of no use.
You will say they was ignorant men and
that was a fact ; but I just want to know
if the laws is made so that an Ignorant
man may be robbed of his home when
he tries to do his duty? I have heard
of a widow woman whose husband ne
glected to pay his lax and got sued be
fore his death. His lands was sold af
ter his deatli for taxes and she had to
get off with her family. A fuw men are
'cttin" rich off all this and don't like to
have any one complain, but l can't think
it is right to just ketch us up short when
ever wo make a mistfike.

Davis creek has been behaving very
badly for several duys past, getting oitt
of its banks and coursing its way through
thu southern and western part of town
every time we have a rain. On Friday
night it almost became a river. Satur
day evening there was a meeting of the
citizens of the Hub to consider what
could bo done to keep said stream with
in its banks and out of town. After
rcsoluting pretty extensively, hml lis
tening to a great many speeches from
our oldest attorney, the meeting by the
chairman appointed a committee of
three to view the creek, determine what
is best to do in the premises and the
probable cost, and report to the meet
ing on the evening of the first Monday
in September. A committee of five was
appointed to solicit subscriptions froth
the citizens to defray the expenses of
the undertaking. The town will furn
ish a bout $100 toward the work.

The Heathen at Our Doors.
Mr. Editor: I was at a meeting
lately in our neighborhood of Rush Bot
tom. The object of it seemed to be, if
I understood tho head man, to raise
funds for the heatheus ard pagans that
reside iu "foreign parts." Now, in
deed, Mr. Editor, I thought the words
"foreign parts" were well put. If wc
haint got heathen and pagous right
hero in these Missouri bottoms where
arc they? We are not all complete
fools and some of us tako tho papers.
Wc read that there arc worse people
in Europe and America than seems to
bo in most places where heathens live.
Missionaries tell us tho Japs and Tar
tars are the most moral people going,
even if they are not quite so civilized.
Wo do know that the Indiaus were bet
ter people without our interference.
Wo may have saved a few souls for
heaveu but we made tho masses a thous
and fold worse children of wrath than
they were before.
Go up and down these bottoms and
visit families of tho frest most desti
tute and then com up out of tho mud
and mire asking us to give our means
to the heathen of Chine and Africa!
What can a man be who will ask ns to
do so? Suppose tho people of this
county moot together and sik to com
pare notes on this thing? And suppose
that wo give our earnings partly to im
prove the "Heathen at our doors."
Yours, Semi P.voan.
