The strangest case of hold-up ever known in and around
Owl City occured today. Tucker Tightwad, our enterprising
real estate dealer, was walking along Gar street when he was
accosted by a stranger in a buggy who asked him about a piece
qi land he had for sale south of town and urged Tuck to drive
down there with him and show him the land. Mr. Tightwad
got in the buggy and after they had driven out beyond the city
limits Tuck felt himself getting dro(wsy. That is the last he
remembers, but when he recovered consciousness lying along
side the road as a cow cam'e up and commenced licking him
in the face, ho sot up and looked around but the stranger with
the buggy had disappeared. Mr. Tightwad felt in his pocket
and discovered that his purse containing 97 cents in coppers
had been taken and that the strangre had stuck a hypodermic
needle through his thick overcoat and clothing and injected a
charge of "white mule" or some other narcotic drug into him
.and made him unconcious to such an extent that he would
possibly never have unlimeberd had it not been for the cow
licking his face. He was so dead to the world it made it easy
for the stranger to rob him. Mr. Tightwad asserts that he sor
ter felt a twitching as the hypodermic needle entered his hide,
but he didn't suspect what it was; thought maybe 'twas a cooti
ie that had got jarred loose from the stranger,but did'nt want
to make a howl and maybe bust up a land deal.

Jay Hawk, who runs the groundhog grocery, is threat
ening to sue or whip the express company or somebody for dam
age. He ordered a barrel of irish 'taters by express, but when
he opened them up, found the house had, by mistake, or with
malice aforethought, shipped him a barrel of dollar watches
insted of 'taters. Jay offered the barrel and watches back to
the express agent if he would accept them for the express
charges, but the agent refused. Jay says he proposes to in
vestigate the matter to the bottom and if he finds the house is
trying to impose upon him in such a highhanded way they get
no more of his business.
If Honk Carr, a young farm employee of near Owl City
could have purchased "regular whiskey" in the regular way a
few days ago his troubles would be fewer now. Failing to get
the liquor from the drug store because of so much "red tape"
in the "prescription law," he tapped his employer's silo and
imbibed much silo juice, a variety of stimulant that leads to
strange results. Honk, after frequent potations, fitted an im
provised rope ladder to a 200-pound hog and rode the animal
10 miles down a cattle trail until it dropped dead. The hu
mane society ought to investigate such proceedings.
We was down to Steele a few days ago and saw our old
pal, Newt Maxwell. Newt is powerfully dissatisfied down there
and says if it don't stop raining he's thinking of moving out and
coming to Owl City. Newt says it is so wet down there that
there is already 50 bushels or frogs to the acre and enough
snakes to fence the land. While we would be powerful glad
to have Newt for one of our citizens we have bet our print shop
that we can tell the truth for three days, so we are bound to
say Owl City isn't much wuss tha Steele in the respects Newt
The scales of justice seem out of balance when it is per
fectly all right for some shyster lawyer to ask an honest citizen
of Owl City who had been yanked up before the court, if he
was not convicted of highway robbery in 1862.
All sorts of robbers is getting larger in number every day.
We also notice that our 'steemed contemporary, The Clayroot
Gazoote, got $13.95 for supporting for re-election Pete High
pockets for mayor of that sorely afflicted burg.
As no one seems to come forward with any causes for the
recent earthquakes we would modestly suggest that it might
have come from too much shimmying at the same time.

B. B. Sanders authorizes The Mis
souri Herald to cast his hat into
the ring as announcing his candi
dacy for the office of Probate Judge
of Pemiscot county. Mr. Sanders
is a Democrat and, of course, is ap
pealing to tho voters of that party
in tho coming August primary.
Mr. Sanders has been before the
people of Pemiscot county in a busi
ness way for nearly twenty years.
He came from Hickman, Kentucky,
to Caruthersville and established the
Sanders Shoe Storo at the location
where tho Musgrave & Mason store
Is now conducted. Mr. Sanders in
troduced new and progressive sys
tems into the mercantile business
at Caruthersville which, from the
first, were a success. Ho was later
connected with other stores there
as manager, and more recently took
up tho life insurance business.
While progressive, Mr. Sanders is
also conservative in t,hc right degree
to keep abreast of tho times, and,
above all, ho is absolutely trust
worthy . He is a gentleman of more
than tho ordinary affability of the
native kind that don't wear off
when policy no longer requires its
use, but the same today, tomorrow
and under all circumstances wher
ever you meet him. A big, feeling
heart beats within his bosom that
makes him a friend to all kinds and
conditions of men, for all of whom
ho has a hearty handshake and en
couraging word. If nominated and
elected tho oiilce will be in tho hands
of a man possessing both honesty
and ability lo tho full 100 per cent
measure. Further say on our part
is not required.
