State Board of Health.
The annual meeting of the state
board of health was held in Jefferson
City. Officers for the ensuing year were
elected as follows: President, Dr. F. J.

A Dlftafttron Tour.
Poor in pocket, but rich in experience
and by no means crushed in spirits, the
Missouri University glee club returned
to Columbia from their holiday tour
through Missouri and Kansas. Two of
the members of the club came in on
foot, but the rest of the club had snftt
cient wealth left to secure seats in a
wagon, and rode in, cheering lustily
and waving their musical instruments
in the air. In Kansas the club were
greeted with almost empty houses at
every point, and left a trail of debt
behind them. At Atchison they were
stranded, and were obliged to borrow
money from Columbia in order to con
tinue their tour. They had better luck-
in some of the Missouri towns, how
ever, and in Kansas City performed to
a crowded house. But they still owe
several hundred dollars, and are re
solved to give Kansas a wide berth In
future. The object of the tour was to
pay off the debts of the foot-ball team.
St. Louis' Great Bnnloeu Year.
Says the Globe-Democrat: The clear
ances of the St. Louis banks were
81,118.573.210 in 1890. 51.139.599.575 In
1891, $1,231,571,003 in 1892. 51.139.014.291
in 1893, 51,127.702106 in 1894, and$:,244,
323.653 in 1895. There was a p-ain in
1895 of 10.34 per cent, over 1894. When
the "good old times" of the recent past
are spoken of anywhere in the United
States, 1892 is always in mind. That
year represented the high-water mark
in general trade in St. Louis as well as
in the rest of the country. The conn
try at that time, as gauged by the bus
iness barometer, was at the topmost
wave of prosperity. Yet in extent of
bank clearings, which are a fairlj- trust
worthy index of trade in general, St.
Louis in 1895 beiit its record in 1892.
