ROUTE NUMBER ONE.
Rural Mail Route in Boone
' County Will Begin
Rural mail delivery is to be estab
lished in Boone county, and the
first route agreed upon ia 23)i miles
in length. Beginning at Columbia
the carrier will go down the Ash
land gravel road to a short distance
below Deer Park, thence east to the
Range Line road, thence north in
tersecting the Fulton gravel road at
the Carlisle School house, and
thence to Columbia. There are 127
houses on the route and at least this
number of patrons will be served
The route was agreed upon last
week during the visit of James Kev
ins, Rural Route Inspector from
Washingtor D. C, who drove over
the various proposed routes in com
pany with N. T. Gentry. The in
spector in Mr. Gentry's office exam
ined six applicants for the position
of carriert this has not been passed
on, but will be in a short time, by
the department at Washington.
The lucky applicant will receive
$50 a month and bis toll fees. He
will be provided with a neat mail
wagon, such as Uncle Sam furnishes
his employes on rural routes. The
service agreed upon will go Into op
eration about July 1, as there is some
preliminary work yet to be done.
The government requires . the
patrons of rural delivery to put up
metallic boxes to receive' their
mail. There are about fourteen ap
proved patterns of these boxes rang
ingfrom about $1.75 to $3.50 each.
Several other routes In the county
have been petitioned for, and will
doubtless be established a little later.
Among these is one out the Roc lie
port gravel on the west; another
north on the Blackfoot road to Hin
ton; another to the southwest on
the Providence road; and still
another northeast on the road to
Shaw. All these roads are good,
and the routes are feasible. .There
Is no reason apparent why Boone
county should not have several of
these routes which have been peti
tioned for. '
A Pond Saved His Life.
George Key rushed into the burn
ing home of William Llewellyn in
the east -nd of Audrain county,
hoping to save the contents. Mr.
Key was nearly burned before he
succeeded in finding his, way out.
He jumped into a pond of water and
extinguished his burning garments.
Last Year's Drouth.
Mr. A. E. Hackett, section direc
tor of the Weather Bureau, April 18
was the anniversary of the big
drought that has prevailed in this
portion of the country for the past
year. During the entire year the
rainfall was only 17.75 inches, which
is 19.17 inches less than the normal.
Thus it will be seen that it has been
less than 50 per cent of the normal.

Supt. of Marshall Public Schools
T. E. Spencer, who has been the head
of the Marshall schools for 20 years,
by his attorneys, Yeager, Strother &
Yeager of Kansas City, and Harvey
Cower of Marshall, has filed a peti
tion in Saline circuit court asking
$20,000 damages of the Index which
is published by O. P. Sturm.
, The case grew out of the late con
gressional contest in which It is
alleged the Index attacked Prof.
Spencer for writing certain articles
in the Democrat-News of which he
is part owner, and it is alleged,
sought to injure him as a teacher
for his alleged participation in the
said congressional contest as a
champion of Hon. Matt Hall
against James Cooney The Index
claiming, it is alleged, that he neg
lected his sohool duties and violated
the good faith of his obligations to
the school board who employed
It is said that R. B. Rutf is the
attorney for the Index.

Jefferson City Press Sold.
With the issue of Saturday morn
ing the Jefferson City Press was dis
continued. Most of the plant has
been sold to the Capitol Printing Co.
of Guthrie, Ok., and the subscription
list and good will to the State Trib
une. The latter will thereby become
the state democratic paper issued
from Jefferson City.
The press was organized three
years ago by J. H. Edwards and oth
ers, and again launched Jan. 1 of
thjls year by the, C. B. Mlddleton
Printing Co. with A. M. Hough pres
ident, C. D. Mlddleton, business
manager, and J. H. Edwards, secre
tary. The cause assigned for dis
continuance is that the Typograph
ical Union wage scale in Jefferson
City is so high that two papers can
not be run with profit. Clias. E.
Dewey and Ralph E. Oldham have
been the editors of the Press since its
reorganization. CD. Mlddleton will
return to Warrensburg and resume
the management of the Star after
winding up the atTairs f the Press.

I had nervous indigestion and a
general derangement of the entire sys
tem. It had been a continual torture
for twelve years. My blood became
very poor and at times my toe and
finger nails would be diseased. After
eating I would sit in a chair and put
my feet on something to keep them
from swelling and at times would take
off my shoes for the misery I had.
Whenever I experience anything to
remind me of past aches I cannot be
too elated to tell what Ripans Tabules
have done for me. I still take one now

' While showing some friends

reflecting upon the honesty and in
tegrity of Judge Allison, who is Mr.
McQuitty's successor in the office of
mail inspector. The JeiTerson City
Press says that before going in the
institution Mr. McQultty was asked
to leave his revolver with the ward
en as it was ago Inst the rule for vis
itors to carry arms while on the
inside. When the editor reached
the department of the man whom he
had been abusing, that official began
raining blows over the head of Mr.
McQuitty with his cane, The two
men .were separated but not before
the newspaper man had received a
gash on the head.
The affair has been quite generally
commented on by the people and the
newspapers, some of whom believe a
public official should not be guilty of
attacking a visitor while on official
duty;' however great the provocation
may be. Home time ago Mr. Mc
Qultty In his paper made an attack
on Judge Allison charging him with
taking money and stamps from let

not know whether such charge has
any foundation in faot. The last is

which will probably even up old
scores between these two gentlemen.
