FLOATING ANOTHER BOAT.
William York has again cast
his "light canoo" on tho crested
wave of Journalism, being now ed
itor and publisher of tho Steele En
terprise. In two ways Mr. York Is
now nearer homo than ho has been
for a long time. In tho first In
stance, Steele is tho neighborhood
of his first ncquaintedness with Mis
souri and Missourinns, which dates
back to the fall of 1894, about twon-ty-olght
years. In tho second place,
ho is nearer homo In his work than
ho has been slnco he sold "Tho Hayti
Herald" about seven years ago and
became a wanderer on the face of
tho earth, going from place to place
as a journeyman printer and lino
type operator, following that ignls
fatuus that leads after, but never
to, tho better perspective. All roads
that ho followed, like the needle of
tho compass, pointed ever the same
course; hence his arrival at his
starting point of over a quarter of a'
century ago. Steele, then In the
woods, was tho hunter's paradise
but little of nature is left to tell of
those vanished days. With tho dis
appearance of the tall and stately
forest trees have also disappeared
most of the pioneers, and tho sound,
of the hunter's horn is heard no
more. A verse that applies" la an
other race and a far more ancient
time, is also not out of place here:
"You say they have all passed away,
The iiolilo nice, and brave;
That their lii;ht cunous have vanished
From off the crested wavo;
That In the forest where they roamed
Js heard no hunter's shout.
Hut their names are on your waters
And you cannot wash them out."
After so far a journey, not always
over smooth roads, the returned
traveler's feet may be a little
bruised, his hair a little hoar, and
his heart a little sore, for those are
the fruits that grow most abundant
ly by the side of the road of life. But
the gathering pi these mean knowl
edge, sometimes deeper love and
sometimes a satisfaction that Ave
could not otherwise have; for he
who knows only the path from his
cabin door to the spring and back
has a narrow vision of this big,
roaring, rushing, traffic-mad world
that rolls on as we roll off into ob
livion. So it is well, sometimes, that
a man has traveled, has reached the
end of his rope, has ceased to drag
and has begun to dig, maybe at the
very spot where he dug ilrst, where
his pick has lain and rusted through
We note that JMr. York recalls
that he floated over the townsitc of
Steele in a Mississippi river ferry
boat in March, 1S97, twenty-iive
years ago, to which the editor of
The Missouri Herald adds his cor
roboration, though we were not one
of the party to make the trip on that
occasion from Pemiscot bayou to
Cottonwood Point. We would say
may it never happen again, but as
wo recall it now, "those were the
It requires no stretching of the
imagination to realize that the
world has rotated since then, and
has whirled so fast that many of us
have been slung off to disappear
among the twinkling stars and the
great silence that lies beyond. Those
of us who are left have learned, let
us hope, to clutch the tighter to our
seats and dodge tho tails of the com
ets and meteoric rocks with which
wo aro Incessantly bombarded.
Wo hope Mr. York will now be
able to anchor his boat at Steele and,
as Noah, after his vogagc of the
world's greatest flood, And a safe
landing, and there begin anew the
replenishment of .tho earth and his
pocketbook. Noah did not set out
for Ararat, neither did York for

to Mr. Stephens, follows:
"My Dear Gov. Stephens:
"Your letter of April 22 has grat
ified me. I am glad to be sustained
in my own judgment of Reed by
your own closer knowledge of him
and I shall hope and confidently ex

Democrats at the primaries. Cer
tainly Missouri cannot afford to be
represented by such a marplot, and
it might check the enthusiasm ot
Democrats throughout the country
if their comrades in Missouri should
not redeem the reputation of the
party by substituting for Reed a
man of the true breed of Democratic
principle. I am sure your own great
influence will contribute to the de
sired and expected redemption.
