All forgotten Rrtlclos are very carefully

lose very little. I noticed a very funny
lnrldPht a few d.ijs ago. A man who had
asked the pKseiigcr director a half dozen
times about his train entered Into comer
ntlon, Just btfote the time ror hi train to
liull out, ltl some iceiualntaiice. He stood
with his back to the train, talking com
placcntly, and the train pulled anas be
for" he noticed It. lou ought to hive
Keen his tool; of disgust when lie turned
about to board the tar that he supposed
was standing there. The funniest thine
about It was thnl 1 had stepped up to
him to tell him his tr.iln was moving out
nnd before I could utter a couple of words
lie asked me It I dldn"t know better thnn
to interrupt n conversation. Under the
i Ircumstanccs I was entitled to a little en
Josment when I saw his train slowly
blcalltn; away from behind him."
IVputy Impounder Tom Curry "Every

fore I stepped Into my present position It
used to make me a little savage to have
the canine of which I was the proud pos--csor
roped In by the Impounder. The
laws have to be enforced, however, and
the peoplo have to have men to enforce
them. They cin't expect college gradu
ates and men with Cheitertleldlnn Kraces
to po Into the business of nccompanjlnu
a bocd wagon about the cltv and liso
Rtray dogs with wire noose Nor ran the
men engaged In this business afford to
wear dress nilts. Neither can they stop
to parley with every owner of Rn unll
i ensed dog nor tnke shorthand notes of
the evidence In the case. No, sir, a Rood
Impounder dots not require all these ttuall

my opinion that for tho pist two or three
Seirs Missouri his been a Itepubllcin
state, only the votes have not been fairly
counted At any rate, Missouri is very
likely to be a Republican statu next elec

past few stars have driven back into Mis
souri people who were settled In Western
Kansas and Oklahoma. Most of these
