Tho locution of tlie bpringt is rather

:iinon; the most attractive in the west.
In the traet, are ahoiit ;Hmj acre of land
and Mi', t'hristoptK-r has turned agtod
part of tlit" into n pleuniiie park, The
hotel, which Ls a lnn;e, airy structure
ia situated oil a hih ridju. running
from east to Weint, and to reach It you
muit cross quite a deep canyon on the
north Mile. Thu hotel has about 76
room beside, the necessary parlors,
.lining rooms, Ac. On thu south are
liroad verandas above and below, and
as ft is eurrotinded by forest trees, It
presents a cool, inviting appeurane
these sweltering days. In the canyon
on the south is the fatUfd spring,
which sends out its life giving fluid in
a vigorous stream through an Iron
pipe, into a ba-in cut in the rock,
Above thu spring has been erected n
nice pagoda wilii tin L extended to the
west which shelters ft smalt reservoir
of the water, where, jugs and bar re It
ire tilled for diipui-ut or use vlso
where. A few steps farther west is p
large fountain surrounded by a circu
lar reservoir. The water to mil the
'ouutaiu is pumped Into a huge tank
up at the hotel and returned through
pipes. The etigitio and pumps are lo
cated only a little way from the foun
tain. A little further west is a large
irlilicitil lake, the water in places be
ing fourteen feet dee). On the south
side is a boat house, whero those who
like to row on thu water can take, a
nart. This luku is well stocked with
lish, and as the proprietor ulluws no
iishing, the liuiiy tribe have become
very gentle and will come up and take
bread from your hand wheu hold un
der tho wuiur. A la.y looking cat
about lo inches long eitme up and uib-
tlud at a piece of bread in our hand.
The proprietor says he will begin to
eat on these Uah this fall. He put
mont of them in the. water only two
urs ago when very small, but the
nave grown and increased rapidly. Ou
the south bank are two bath houses. A
iltle. furl.'.er west is a much larger
itke, puilmpn u half mile long, also a
long bath hoii-e, but we did not exam
ine it carefully. Here were a number
f boats and several of iho editors
warmed themselves up pretty Hveh
owing, a kind of fun wo never could
Appreciate. On thu way to this lake
ve passed a small cage iu which were
four prairie dogs, which were quite a
Minority, and on thu hillside, in a
large cage was a bald eagle, which
creamed whenever any person went
near bis cage. Dugout of tho bill side
was a well constructed hot house, full
of ruru plants. Carriage drives have
been cut on the hill sides in every di
rection, and it is certainly as romantic
a apot as a young man. could hie awav
to with his dulceita, but perhaps not t
retired as he would like, iartlier south
on tho next ridge is tho large tabu ma-
jle, erected for tii Sam Jones meeting
tnd on the way, un the right is a large
neatly cuu-Uiuctcd pagoda, belonging
to the i utnbciland rrusbitciians. Ou

'The carriages were then headed f u
tile great Warremduirg stone iiiarrie,
:itroiit two miles north of ton n. 1 1 ere
we found business iuoing oti an ex
tensive scale. Several le;un engine
were at work, and nnmerou. saw s w rte
cutting and shaping the stone for build
ers use. The rock, which in t. light
tjrey, sandstone, is quarried by cutting
trenches iu it about two inche- wide
say live feet deep, and n long its
wanted. These trt nche tire cut with
steam drills, the engines being placed
on railroad iron and tinned as thedrill
cuts. Wedges are then dm en umh r
the exposed side and when it is split
loose from the rock below, is raied
out with a derrick. Koek of any de
sired dimensions cau be ipiurried in
this way. A visit to the second (piarry
found the work of the first being re
peated. The party then returned to
the Klectrio spring, located in the
north suburb of Warrens burg. This
water to the taste is apparently from
the same vein as the 1'ertle spring-, j
but as the grounds are not et improv
ed and no preparation made to accom
modate visitors. It is called the "pour
nuni spring.' Numler of alllicted
persons come lie re annually aud e:imp
and numerous certilieates of the heal
ing powers tf thu waters htivt- been
given. Our parly met w ith a splendid
reception here, and found a bountiful
lunch of Cake and ice cream await
ing them. The evening was tpiite
warm and after a dusty ride you mux
bo sure this was a treat great I enjoy
ed. The springs are the porpcrtv of
Mr. tieo. Colbert. .
Our party then relumed to I'ei tle
priugs, where we spent the night.
A dance waa given at one of the halts
on the ground and a banquet at mid
night, but we preferred a night s rest
to this kind of dissipation.
Some of the Kditor men diseovered
a new spring, on the grounds, which
ihey called number oK IVtsoually
we did not taste the product of this
pring but those who did, churned that
it had a much more cxhileruting eil'eet
thau the regular 1'erllc, at any rate
they liked it better. However the
spring proved not to be permanent aud
went dry as soon as our party left.
The proceedings of the association
are not a matter of sulticicut interest
to our readers to give space here, and
It la sul.iciont to sav that from a busi
ness point of view this was one of the
must important meetings held, and
matters were discussed, and

The following is snlHtantiallj tha

'Hint nt the time of tlie ndoption of

ell hv the gallon, the merchant Id
piant it ir d live gnllons, (ho drnmshop

in "piantii't Kss than one gallon, npon
prescription for medical porpoac. Tha
local option act does not expressly re
peal any one of thee four lawn, but It
pos-ieHKes hy implication whatever ra
pcaling power it ha. The language
of the local option act in, that if a ma
jorily of thu voles be against the ale
of intovicating IhguorH, it shall not ba
lawful for any person lo directly or In-
lireetly sell intoxicating liifuora.
Shall the prohibition against "any per
son1' selling aply to one e last only
or the four Has-) m. The language is
rtumty broad enough to coverall
four clawei. it is significant that tbtt
ction prohibiting 'any person' from
sidling iuloxicating liipiors Is followed
in the Hih seetlnn by an exception per
niitling thn druggist to sell wine for
sacramental purposes.and pure alcohol
for medical purpo"es; under the dnig
gixt net of IHs.l thn druggist already
had this mwur, and if the druggiat'a
art was not alTectcd by the local option
t, then there was absolutely no point
milking thtN exception in favor of
the druggist. This exception, follow
ing tlie general prohibition against
"any person' "idling, necessarily im
plies that tho right of the druggist to
sell wine or intoxicating lupiora was
taken awav by the general phohibitorr
icction. aud that It waa necessary to
make the exception, In order to retain
the right. 'I he extent of the right must
be mca.surcd by the exception limits
i he power of the druggist to sell wine
for sacramental purposes, or pure alco
hol for medical purposes. This prohi
bition against the sale of any into'
Miting liquors except pure alcohol for
medical purposes does not exceed tha
limitation of the police power of tho

power of tho st;dn to prohibit alto-g.-thrr

Always direct and manly. His mind
was not preoccupied und engrossed with
Militieal contests or with political con
tests or with atlairs nf state. He had
luturat ami cultivated ta.su outside of
