two old pioneer preachers,Dr. R.
P. Rider of St. Louis and Dr.
J. C. Maple of Cape Girardeau,
both representing the Ministerial
and Historical work of Missouri.
The brethren have been ap
pointed by the Baptist General

A shower of small frogs and
minnows fell at Panalast Thurs
day morning. The larger frogs
were killed but the smaller ones
lay stunned for a few minutes
and then hopped away. The
fish were all killed and ranged
from a half an inch to two inches
in length. Old settlers say this
is the first time it has rained
frogs in and around Pana since
1855. It is supposed that a small
cyclone sucked the contents of
some pond into the clouds which
caused the strange occurrence.
