LAST NIGHT'S FIZZLE.
Congressman Ed. Hays, T. R. Cole
and H. J. Reinhard spooched to their
heart's content at the High School
auditorium last night, not seeming
ly the least embarrassed at a house
of empty seats. We wasn't present,
hence forewent the pleasure of
hearing this bunch of muttonheads
expose their lack of intellect. We
intended to be present, but our lino
type having broken down yesterday
(Friday), and not getting it re
paired until dark, and being a day
late, were forced to work last night.
However, having heard a report of
the remarks from a reliable source,
we feel that we were fortunate to
escape the punishment that was ad
ministered this paper in our absence.
Hays made the usual standpat
Republican speech, favoring the
high tariff, the anti-Iynching bill
and all the obnoxious measures his
party stands for. The do-nothing
Congress, in his estimation, was
great, and as that is right in his
line, he, of course, was thoroughly
at home. If the next Congress
should be of the same kind as the
one just closed, it would be well to
return Ed., for he would be right in
line with such waste and idleness.
But that is past. The people are go
ing to take the matter in their own
hands and henceforth demand ser
vice of their servants.
As is well known to the public,
Cole and Reinhard, political twins,
birds of the same feather, have bad
it In for The Missouri Herald for
some time, and lust night both took
occasion to relieve their bile in a
flood of stink that would have made
a polecat turn green with envy.
Wo couldn't say the crowd was with
them, because the crowd wasn't
It is hoped, being relieved of this
long pent-up, poison bile, will give
some relief in some ways.
As to Reinhard, the people of
Hayti have his measure. He is the
same fellow that has sought and is
seeking to turn the commercial club,
if there is any of it left, into a po
litical dive, and he being a Republi
can, one of the hard-boiled sort, the
kind that can see no good in any
thing or anybody akin to Democracy, I
there need be no guess about his pur
Hose. But he will not succeed, not any
more than he did last night in his
abuse of The Missouri Herald that
was serving the honest public here
long before he came, and if he runs
true to such characters as have pre
ceded him and vanished, this sheet
will be here long after he has gone
the skyrocket route.
It sometimes surprises a man to
learn how quickly his neighbors
lind- him out.
There is little domestic harmony
when both husband and wife want
all the solo parts.

Origin of the Word "Cop."
The word "cop" originated in Lon
don, being derived from the three
taltlnls of "constable of police." This
Interesting bit of information comes
from Police Commissioner Knrlght of
New York City.
Chief Enrlght's theory of how the
word "cop" came Into being has expe
rience, precedent nnd probability to
hack It. It ha experience, hernuac
Commissioner Knrlght Is conversant
with police affairs. It bus precedent
because when the words of n phrase
happen tu have initials which, taken
together, can be pronounced In one
syllable, there is a tendency to lump
theig in one, and so form a new word.
It 1ms probability because the ety
mology suggested Is simple nnd nnt
urul. "Cnp" Is an abbreviation which
any Kngilbli-speaklng public would like
to make nf "constable of police."
Nobody knows all about n word until
lie bus looked up its origin. To do
that is one of the best of helps toward
fixing the meaning of words muci
longer and far less fumlliar than "cop'

A TALE WITH A MORAL.
Known to Each Other.
I llnd it most dllllcult to remember
names, and, this falling, often gets mo
into trouble. At a dance one evening
I was introduced to a charming girl,
who was standing by the dour of the
ballroom waiting for her partner. vWo
stood talking for a few moments, when
an acquaintance came up to talk to
me, and I, starting out glibly to in
troduce the two, realised I had com
pletely forgotten the ulrl'a name.
"I beg your pardon. I would like to
present Mr. Wilson, and I am afraid
I have forgotten your name," I re
' marked, apologetically.
"That'll perfectly all right," she an
awered, "He's my husband." Exchange.
The Adams County Democrat re
lates a story that is so horrible in its
details as to suggest the propriety
of its exclusion from the mails. And
yet It carries a moral possibly mak
ing it legitimate. A Thayer county
man sent a little son of his on an er
rand. The little fellow accidentally
ran into a stand of bees and in 15
minutes he "looked like a warty,
crooked-necked squash." And then
a series of accidents followed in a
most remarkable never-before-heard-of
procession. Listen to the Demo
crat: "The father seeing the condition
of his son, ran to his assistance,
and, failing to notice u barb wire
fence, ran into that, cutting a big
gash in his leg and ruining u ?9
pair of pants. The family cow took
advantage of the eap In the fence,
took to the corn Held and died from
eating too I'roel of green corn.
Hearing the noise outside, the wife
ran out and upset a live-gallon
churn of Jersey cream into a basket
of newly hatched chickens, drown
ing all of them. In her haste she
dropped a set of store teeth which
a full-blooded, Jersey took for a car
rot, and in swallowing same, choked
to death. The baby, having been
left alone, crawled through the milk
Into the sitting room, ruining a very
valuable carpet. During the excite
ment a daughter ran away with
one of the neighbors's suns nnd the
dog broke up 10 setting hens. The
calves also got out of an enclosure
and chewed the tails off five shirts
on the clothes line."
All of which happened because
the father had sent the Ind over to
a neighbor to borrow the lattor's
paper instead of subscribing him
self. Could the moral be mora

To these Indies has been delegated
the duty of getting out the WHITE
Democratic vote of their respective
townships mainly, they are to bo
concerned with the women voters
in the belief that the men will be
able to take care of themselves; but
In case any of them are found lag
ging, such masculine genders are to
be given a boost or a prod that will
cause them to do their duty. A
great duty rests upon the male and
female WHITE Democratic voters
of Pemiscot county, for it is not
only necessary to outnumber the
white Republicans vote for vote,
but after that is clone, there comes
the herd of negroes that must also
be matched vote for vote. Is this
not plain enough, for all to under
stand? Down south, rather than
have negro-elected officers, the Re
publicans join the Democrats In
siilliclcnt numbers to elect the
Democratic ticket. It ought to be
so here, and will be sometime
sometime after majorities made
from herds of negro votes has been
tried and the disgust and hateful
ness of it realized. The white ma
jority of this county is largely Dem
ocratic, and for that reason the
Democratic candidates should be
elected. Up until two years ago the
WHITE vote has controlled. This
has always been a WHITE man's
country, and would continue to be
so if left to the WHITE vote. There
is but one way to keep this county
under white control, and that is for
WHITE people of all parties In suf
ficient numbers, to vote the Demo
