The Basis of Our Hope.
The hop'e of immortality is
based upon many foundations, but
if Jesus had not risen from the
dead, if he not won that wonder
ful victory over the grave, the
fond hopes which Christians cherish
1 relating to the futuie life would
' not be as firmly established as
tlieyaro. It is a great help to
our faith to know that Jesus
"tasted death tor every man,"
und said. "I am the resurrection
and the life- he that belicvcth in
Me, though he were dead, yet
shall he live."' It means much
that He who said, "Because I live,
yc shall live also," has indeed
"risen from the dead, and become
the first fruits of them that slept."
Everything with referem-e to
tho future life rests upon Jesus
Christ as far as the Christian is
concerned, for, as Paul said. "If
there be no resurrection of the
dead, then is Christ not risen,"
and, "If in this life only we hope
in Christ, wc arc of all men most
miserable." Again Paul said, "If
the dead rise not, Jesus Christ is
not risen; and if Jesus Christ is
not risen, your faith is vain."
Some Local McNamaras?
Is there somo person in this
county who aspires to the repu
tation gained by the McNamaras?
Is some person trying to break in
to the public print via the dyna
mite route? It would seem so from
the fact that fourteen sticks of
that explosive were found buried
r under the tracks of the Southwest
Missouri Electric Railway at a
point just east of Joplin last Wed
The dynamite was placed in the
gravel just under the rails at a
; place where there is a, double
; track and there were seven sticks
under each track enough to have
blown a street car to fragments
and kill every person' on it 6 "say
nothing of the damage to a near
by bridge. That the murderous
fiend who plotted this destruction
'was not successful is no fault of his
own; something went wrong with
- his plans, but his intent was just the
'same and if he is captured it is
quite likely that the charge of at
tempted wholesale murder win
stand against him. '
Jasper County should join the
electric line company in offering a
reward for the arrest and convic
tion of the person or persons who
attempted this outrage . The
company is not the only one inter
ested in this case it is a case in
which every citizen of the county
should feel a personal interest in
bringing the guilty to justice, for
in a sertsc the life of every person
who travels op -tho electric line
was attacked. Carthago- Pfels

In several places about town
will be found notices, written with
pen and ink on ordinary writing
paper and nailed to a telephone
post or some such place; one call
ing tiie attention of the voters of
this school district to the iccetit
school election, and the other is
the notice of the road overseer an
nouncing that it is time to pay
poll laxc. In this day and age
of the world, is that a sensible way
to advertise an election or notify
voters to pay poll taxes? Pifty
years ago, when a man wanted to
sell a few slaves or buy a yoke of
oxen, a notice liku that referred to
was about the only way to ac
complish his purpose, but it is not
so today. The newspaper is the
place for such adverlising?tmd the
only place wherein it catvnecom
plish its purpose.
Baxter is mourning because a
stranger came to that town, made
n big talk, went into big- business,
on credit secured by his sublime
cheek, and pulled out, leaving
debts ranging all the way from Si
to S50. Baxter need not feel so
ashamed, however. A dishonest
cheeky chap with a fancy vest and
a taking way can go into almost
any town and make a haul that
way, when a plain, honest man
would hardly be accorded a lofck
in; and wc suppose another beat
could hit Baxter in a few weeks
and secure the keys to the town
and the pockctbooks of the inhabi
tants Chetopa (Ivans.) Clipper.
And, Brother, had you noticed
what u nice price some traveling
advertising (?) grafter can get out
of your home merchants for a lit

isn't worth 20 cents a hundred?

A. Daugherty of the fifteenth Mis
souri district is one of tho new
members of tho 6and Congress, who
has made his influence felt as an
advocate of economy and progres

orator, he is an effective commit

sought by many of his colleauges
who have seen years of service in
tlie lower branch of Congi ess. Mr.
Daughcrty is one of the very fcfa
members of the Committee on
Banking and Currency, who want

to investigate the Money trust.
Under the plan finally adopted to
investigate that Trust, Mr. Daugh

The announcement of Judge Jas.
A. Daughcrty, asking for rcnomi
nation as candidate for Congress
from this district, .appears in an
other column. The Democratic
press is commending Judge
Dauglu-rty for his fealty to Demo
cratic principles, and on account
of that record and his efforts in
behalf of his district he will, no
doubt, be the choice of his party
at the primary election.
