Letter from Colorado.
Editor Herald: Being near
the mountains, we are of neces
sity able to see things from a
'higher point of view than we
could if in a lower altitude. We
feel that wc may bo nardoned
for saying a few words on the
school question, since "Gum
Shoe" Bill Stone and Senator
Warner both felt themselves
called upon to admonish the
Legislature on the ideation of
prohibition and were praised by
many for so doing. Oh, for a
real Democratic paper in Mis
souri and a senator who is either
nirirressivolv Democratic or onen-
ly and consistently Republican! j the 23th and 2ih of June. The

tern. Herein our own district
we are making an effort to have
contiguous districts unite with
us and form one large school
which will be better llian sever-;
nl small schools can be. The
time is past when a school house
. .i... r .;ii
be considered a factor in the
value of his farm. The school
house offered for sale by John
Smith et al is a case in point.
Without wishing to be censor
ious or hypercritical, we wish to
ask. What inducements could
the J. M. A., from the times of
Carlisle to the close of the pres
ent year, offer to men and wo
men seeking a first-class educa
tion? (Be it remembered that
a school is somewhat like an
army it cannot be kept in a
high state of efficiency by chil
dren. Mature years are neces
sary in its ranks.) In teaching
force, in equipment, in buildings
and in funds the school has al
ways been handicapped. "Hot
air," "inspired" advertising,
titular officials and uniformed
pupils will no more make a first
class school than powder, paint,
perfume, curls and neat padding
will make a first-class lady. The
substance is wanting.
Time was when pupils from
that school delighted in speaking
of the public school as the
"charity school." and I am not
sure but that older ones did the
same. If those who have strug
gled so hard to maintain the J.
M. A. as a private institution
had put the same money and
one-half the energy into the
Jackson public school, it would
long ago have been the peer of
any public school system in the
State. The very fact that the
school is given up when three
vcars more would secure the
property to the original con
tractors is ample proof of my
There is no doubt but that
each school would have done
better without the other.
We cannot sleak of the incom
ing superintendent personally.
But of his better half we can say
much, she having been a pupil
of the undersigned for two
years. Relying on her good
judgment, we've no doubt the
Jackson Board has put the right
man in the right place. Stand
by him, and we feel sure the
school will be a credit to the en
tire section of the State.
A few words anent the colored
school: How does it happen that
theie are more graduates of the
names of the two this year than
of any other names? Are those
families the most numerous, or
do the children of those families
stay in school longer? Will
some one tell me whether it's
my imagination or my memory
that is at fault?
In conclusion we will say, Mr.
Editor, that a detailed descrip
tion of the costume8worn by the
leading ladies to the closing ex
ercises of the Jackson public
schools next year will be highly

Central College Items.
Central Business College, Se-
dalia, Mo., is meeting with the
most marvelous success. Com
pelled to order twenty-five new
Underwood typewriters on ac
count of the great demand for
Central Business College short
A large number of pupils have
been plaecd in the past week in
good positions from the short
hand department, also from the
business department . and from
the school of telegraphy. The
demand from the Missouri, Kan
sas and Texas road is greater
than we can supply for telegraph
operators. We have received in
the past week more than forty
letters from persons desiring to
take a telegraph course. We
hope to have the school large
enough to well nigh supply the
demands of the road. The Se-
dalia Telegraph School is now
the official training school for
that road, and with its wires
running through the school, and
with a teacher who was for ten
years train dispatcher on the
Missouri" Pacific road at Sedalia,
the telegraph student can get the
best advantage to be had in tel
egraphy in the United States.
When we add to this the elegant
and convenient equipment of this
institution the advantages are
unsurpassed. We have not space
to give the names of those who
have been placed the past week,
but one bookkeeper has been
placed at $G5 per month, another
has been offered a good position
at Kansas City at $125 per
month, and fourteen others have
been placed in good stenograph
ic positions and bookkeeping po
sitions combined. Judge a tree
by its fruits. Talk is cheap; but
the school that places its pupils
in first-class positions and gives
them an eduation that enables
them to successfully hold such
positions, is a very safe school to

Democratic newspapers have
charged that he is disposed to
favor the brewers and the liquor
interests as against the temper
ance people. There is not a word
of truth in it. He is against
state-wide prohibition, and has
made no secret of that fact, but
he is firmly committed to the
policy of enforcing all laws in
tended to regulate the liquor
traffic and to improve such laws
when found defective and to
make officials who refuse to en
force the liquor and saloon laws
do their duty or quit office. He
is decidedly against the influence
of brewers and saloons in poli
tics except as exerted by other
citizens; in other words, he re
sents the policy of brewers and
saloonists who get into politics
to advance their business inter
ests, and he nas said that much
over and over again. No brewer
or liquor dealer or liquor maker
can dictate to our governor or
hinder or deter him one moment
in any policy or movement he
may wish to undertake in rela
tion to the liquor traffic; and he
is not under obligations to any
man interested in the manufac
ture or sale of intoxicating li
quors, any statement to the con
trary notwithstanding. He be
lieves in making the saloons pay
a high license and in compelling
all saloon keepers to obey the
laws: and he is against any part
nership or combination giving
brewers control of saloons. In
1 short, he is against any aggres-
sion in poiltics on the part of
' men engaged in a business which
i the state must rerulat. His

Tables will be furnished for

The program the ladies are

Some of the number will be a
surprise to the patrons. They
are drilling very thoroughly, and
the character of the work being
done is out of the usual. Three
cantatas are being prepared that
give a wide and very varied
range of effects, and the most
fastidious will find something

It is hoped these will be the
most entertaining and interest

have ever given.
