rtiisuant to a cull, a Urgo and en
thusliistic meeting of the citizens who
voted fiRainst locnl rptlon was held at
the conrtlioiisn lust Monday.
Mai. A. (J. Ootirtney stated the ob
ject of the meeting, and on motion
Ceo. W. .lotus was elected chairman
and M. Goldman, secretary.
The following gentlemen were ap
pointed to dt u ft resolutions express
ive of the sense of tho meeting: I'rof.
Jas. Love, A. (1. Davldmn, Judge I..
1). Sublelt, Judge I. II. Thompson,
Judge (low, ludge Cham hors, and Thos
II. Frailer. The report was as follows:
Whcreao, the report bus gone forth
tint the lnrge majoritv given In Clay
county, at Hie recent election, against
the adoption of the Wood local optltn
law was In favor of whiskey and meant
the licensing of saloons for the sale of
it; and whereas we, who opposed the
adoption of the law, disclaimed any
such object Uirovjf'.miJthe lata, can
vass, therefore, In order to a full and
fair understanding of our position In
the premises, we make dtclumation of
the same as follows-:
1. That we regard the Wood local
option law as "conceived In sin, brought
forth in iniquity and born a bastard;
that we are warranted in believing it
unconstitutional, and know it to
abound with absurd contradictions
andtyranlcal provisions which renders
It unworthy of adoption by Clay coun
ty, where we already have local option
under existing Ihws, backed as it is by
an intelligent public sentiment that is
almost a unit against the licensing of
tloons in Clay county, and upon this
we rely, for the future, to protect us,
as It has done for the last fourteen
t. That our vote, in the form pre
scribed by the law, was only an ex
pression of our opposition to the adop
tion of the Uw, and meant no more
favor "for the Bale of Intoxicating
liquors" than the framera of said law
meant to be fair and just to the voter
when they prescribed the form of bal
lot to be used in voting upon the law.
That we do not believe the child
is yet born who will live to see the day
hen applicants for soloon licenses in
Clay county will b e able to obtain the
requisite number of signatures of tax
payers either to warrantor compel the
county court to grant saloon licenses.
Speechers were made by Maj, A.

How Sam Cams Home.
From Our Huron Animals,
in the City of Cold water, Mich., is a
sorrel horse known by the nam of Old
Sam. He Is the most popular horse In
town. In his younger days he was
used as an omnibus horse, and ho and
his mate, a large bay, were so well
trained that they would turn up to the
prinoipal hotel and back the omnibus
to the sidewalk to let the pissengera
out without being guided at all by the
driver. One stormy night the train
was late, and while waiting at the
station for passengers the driver fell
asleep. Old Sam and his compauion,
after standiug about as long as usual,
started up town on their own account,
backed up at the hotel iu the usual
way, and then went over to the livery
stable where they were kept.
When the war broke out, tho citizens
of Coldwater equipped the Loomis
Battery with some of the iluest horses
that went into the army, and among
them was Old Sam, He was in a great
many battles, but came out unhurt,
and at the close of the war the soldiers
bought him of the Uovernment and
presented him to Oeueral Loomis, who
first commanded the battery. Ou the
return of Old Sam to Coldwater some
of the people thought they would give
him a reception. So they made ready
his ol 1 stall, ailing the raclc with hay
and the manger with oats; then they
met him at the railroad station, and,
after greeting him with three cheers,
turned him loose and watched what be
would do. First he went to the hotel
where he used to stop for passengers.
Then be went over to bla old home,
walked into his old stall, smelt of the
hay and oats, and gave a loud neigh, as
if to express his salisfactiol that
everything was right, aud then began
eating as if he bad beeu away ouly a
few days Instead of years.
Till Ihs Truth.
A Missouri Democrat who is a prac
ticing Christian and friend of temper-
uce, protests against the misuse ol lan
guage in the dispatches from Jackson
describing the rosult of the elections
held In Cape Girardeau county under
thj local option law as "a defeat for
temperance." The protest is timely.
Temperance was not defeated lu Cape
irardeau county nor In Clay, though
both counties, exerclslug local option,
repudiated the principle aud practice
of prohibition by round majorities, in
the latterfcounty there were no saloons
yet the advocates of prohibition forced
au election merely to secure an Indorse
ment of it it Is not ouly unfair, but
untrue aud hypocritical to describe a!
repudiation of prohibition as "a defeat
for temperance." The best temperance
people in the state oppose the prohibi
tion principle. Saloon-keepers oppose
it also because their interests are in
volved, but this does not makethe ques
tion one between temperance aud in
temperance. A prohibition agitator
has a babit of "going on sprees aud a
record that will not bear examination,
but this fact does not necessarily iden
tify the cause of prohibition with ob
taining money under false pretenses,
or with any of bis vices. Under the
law which gives each county the op
tion ot accepting or re jecting prohibi
tion, the question can be settled de
cently and iu order as a neighborhood
question among neighbors, it should
be settled as far as possible without
blttemtss.but at any rale without false
witness ut oue neighbor agaiust an
other. The decalogue does not lotbld
the use of lntoxloauts, but it does for
bid slander, aud It is an odious form ot
false witness for oue neighbor to
charge another with beiug "au enemy
of temperance because he votes

This territory embracing the Slate

by the King of England who assumed
to own all the land on the western con
tinent from sun rise to sun set.
In lfiH2 LaSalle saw the mouth of t he
Mississippi river and claimed the
whole Mississippi valley for the French
government. Under the French rule
from 170S to l"ii3 twelve Governors
presided over the territory commenc

Aubrey. France, November 4, 17U5,
ceded it to Spain and under Spanish
dominion it had eight gubernatorial
rtlers, commencing with 1'edro l'ierras
in 1775 and endiug with Carlos De
hault Delassus In 1 7U9. Spain, March
21, 1801, retroceded It. France, by a
treaty, ratified Marofi 15, 1801, ceded
it to the United States, and It was as
signed to the ofllcera of the territory of
Indiana William Henry Harrison
In lHOo It was made a part of the
"territory or province of Louislaua,"
and from that date until 1810 three
Governors aud two Secretaries and
acting Governors did its executive bus

it was organized as a part of the "Mis

In 182U it was admitted as a state in

Au interesting event in fretin isonry
history was the recent refusal of the
uraud uneut lodge or i rauce to re
store the name of God to its document
and Insignia. Tne erasure was tnide
some yeutsago on the suggestion of
M. Littre, who uuited to his reputation
of distinguished itjicycloedlbt that uf
a very aggressive sceptic. He propos
ed that the letters A. N. U. A. U., s:g
nifyiug "In tli name of the Graud Ar
chitect of the Universe," be removed
from all Masouic emblems and symbol
and tbe proposition was adopted, A
few years alter this was done, M. Lit
tre died a devout Catholic; but his
work remains, aud the Graud Orient
lodge of Frauce, at its recent session,
formally voted down a proposition to
restore the obliterated ancient letters.

lo walk up lii'oiuhvny with one or two
companions. JiHt uswe passed Cham
bers Hi reel a procession swept into
llrondwuy mid starlet northwiiril. It
was some such exclusive association ns
"The Gentlemen's Sons' Club of the
Fonrlb Ward." One feature tlnit.
elwarfcd everything elso was a bass
drum. Attached to it, iu n more or
less casual manner, was a very simill
ami reduced Irishman, who luurchcd
with dispassionate indifference to the
rest of the column, and murdered the
tli-uui with unceasing vigor aud en
thusiasm. We cIiriicihI to be a little
ahead of the procession, uud ns the

was picking blackberries In her
garden when she felt something
bito her on ille right side of the neck
just below the car. She quickly put
ucr right hand up the place, when a
centipede curled itself nrolind her
fureliuger. She iuiuictliutcly brushed
it oil' with her other hand, and stratigu
to relate, did nut faint nor scream, nor
frighten her husband, nor duuglitcr,
or anyone else by calling to them, but
ran into the house, nuel limliug the
ummonia bottle empty, took a big
knife and stuck tho blade into the lire
in thu stove until it got hot, when shn
applied it to the wouiiil. Next she
took somo soda and applied that,
fastening it by wriippiug a cloth nrouml
hur ucck. liv this tune her neck be
gan to swell, and she says sho felt as
