WHAT THE NEW CONSTITU -
TION WILL SAVE THE PEOPLE.
From tin- Columbia Herald
The st rougest avgunient in behalf
of Ihe new constitution is the money
it wilUave the State. AVc have al
ready published a statement of State I Py this time the detendant's witness
Auditor Ilolladay, showing a saving es were widely scattered, and in eon
of. Utt.dOD in State taxes and cxpeu-! sequence, several continuances were
diture-. Put this statement did not
include the interest on the Stale
monies, amounting to $:lU,')i0 each
year, which at present goes into the
pocket of the State Treasurer.but un
der the new constitution goes to the
State. Here wo have then 102,000
saved to the State annually.
Is it possible the people of Missouri
can be deceived by such "bosh'" as
that? What in the name of sense
have the democracy been doing here
tofore with that $402,000 yearly? It
is a tacit acknowledgement that they
Jiave been squandering that amount
over and above what was necessary
for the State's expenses! Now, they
parade this admission of their guilt
before the people as a reason why
they .-hould support the new consti
tution. Is there not something mys
terious about this sudden discovery
of immense saving to the State? Or,
perhaps this $132,000 is saved by rea
son of the diminished levy for Public
Schools! Let the people consider well
these points! There are ends aimed at
in this new constitution business that
Lave not been made apparent to the
people It is safer to stick to the
present Constitution it is wise, lib
eral and just. It may be an easy
thing to break down the public
schools under the various disguises
Ibis end is now sought for, but it will
be a dark day for Missouri. It is easy
to tear down. but difficult to rebuild.

election on Tuesday for Maryville to

A most horrible accident occurred
on the farm of Mr. Jeter, near Jvcyts
ville, on last Wednesday evening, the
particulars of which are about as fol
lows: A Mr. Marshall, a renter, liv
ing in a tenant house on the farm of
Mr. Jeter had his house burned down
while away from home, consuming
everything he had, and two children
that had been left alone by the moth
er, were also burned to death. It
seems the mother built up a fire in
the house and went away for some
purpose expecting to return in a
short time, and during her absence
the house took lire and burned up.

XV a publi.-hed last week an account
of the hanging of a man named Schell,
at Bellefontaine, Ohio, for rape
and murder ot a young woman, nam
ed Allie Laughl'in, by a large mob
composed of surrounding farmers,
numbering several hundred. Subse
quent developments have given rise
to the belief that he was not the mur
derer, that his wife swore away his
life to shield herself, and that she was
really the murderess. In the clutch
ed hand of the dead girl was found a
number of hairs, too long to be those
of Schell. not the color of her own,
but exactly the color of Mrs. Schell's,
and the person of t he girl had not
been violated. A strong feeling of
jealousy is said to have existed on the
part of Mrs. Schell toward Miss
Laughlin. She is said to bo a Uinisy,
unreliable woman, and the unnatural
and somewhat contradictory charac
ter of her evidence against her hus
band; form the basis of the belief in
the minds of a great many that she is
really the guilty party, and the ex
citement is still very great in that

Last Sunday must have been an ex
cellent day for cutting tobacco, from
the number of farmers in this section
that engaged in that pastime. It is
safe to say that more tobacco was
cut that day than on any previous
day this year, and where is the man
who would condemn the farmer for
trying to save the fruits ot his labor,
even if it had to be done on Sunday.
Christ, when on the earth, set the ex
ample, by healing the sick on the Sab
bath day and taught, by precept, that
it was proper to pull an ox from the
mire, or a sheep trom the pit, even if
it was the day consecrated to the ser
vice of the Lord. Then is it not
equally as necessary that you take
your tobacco in out of the cold to
prevent its destruction, on the Sab
bath, as to pull your ox from the
mire, to prevent his destruction? We
think farmers did right in cutting
their tobacco last Sundav. Iluuts

The Strictest of the Monks. Men
Wno Keep Perpetual Silence.and
Who Dig Their Own Graves.
The abbots of Mount Miliary in Ire
land, Sept Fonds m France, and Marias
tern in Turkey, nil monasteries ot the
Trappit order of monks, have decided
to purchase land in Maryland to estab
lish a house in the United States, and
have appointed as their agent Brother
Francis de Sales, who will probably to
day present his credentials to the Arch
bishop of Baltimore, and be formally re
ceived into that diocese.
The Order of Trappists is the severest
in the Church. Perpetual silence is one
of their vows, nml dispensation is given
to speak only when necessity demands
it, or to those tew ol the brothers who
till ollices in the monastery which de
mand occasional conversations They
are not allowed meat, eggs, butter,
cheese, fish, or oil. They sloen on nar
row beds of straw, raised a few inches
trom the ground. J hey dig and refill,
and dig again and refill trom time to
tune their own graves as a reminder of
their mortality. They rise hours before
dawn, and alter prayer antl meditation,
betake themselves to their respective
employments. Among them are black
smiths, shoemakers, tailors, carpenters,
farmers, dairymen, and mill-wrights.
The Trappi-t monasteries named above
are very wealthy, but their wealth has
accrued from the indu.ry of their mem
bers. Those monks ak no charity, and
consequently Brother Francis de Sales
was able to say that he has not journey
ed to America with a subscription list.
He asserted that the monastery Sept
Fonds, in France, alone ottered to defray
the expenses of the new mission. A
temporary house is to be rented, and in
December 200 Trappist monks, selected
lroni throe monasteries, will occupy it.
Brother Francis de Sales is a French
man by birth, but he speaks English
without much peculiarity of accent. lie
is sanguine of the success ofthe mission
he is sent to superintend. He says that
the Abbot ot Sept Fonds in France was
a Count of great wealth : that the Ab
bot of omit Miliary in Ireland was at
one lime a candidate ior election to
Parliament, and that the six-feet-two

That which protects from or prevents this
disorder must be of immense service in tho
communities where it prevails. Prevention
is better than cure; for the patient escapes the
risk which he must run in violent attacks of
this baleful distemper. This " Cuke" expels
the mia'smatic poison of Fever antl Aguo
from the system, and prevents the develop

approach of its premonitory symptoms. A
great superiority of this remedy over any
other ever discovered for the speedy and cer

no Quinine or mineral; consequently it pro
duces no quinism or other injurious effects
whatever upon the constitution. Those cured
by it arc left as liealthy as if they had never
