born in Littleton, Mass. Ho was raised on
a farm, received a common school education
and later attended school at Xew London
Academy, at "Sow London, X.'IL, and also
a scientific nchool at Philadelphia. lie left

as clerk in a grocery storo in Boston for
about two years. Ho camo west iu 18(5:5,
and was sworn info government service at

ho returned to Massachusetts, but came to
Ceiltralia, Mo., tho same year, remaining
there till 187(5, when he located in Louisiana,
Mo. Ho has since been engaged iu tho lum
ber business. Ho has been chairman of tho
Itepublican County Central Conunittco of
Piko County two tonus ; a member of tho
State Itepublican Committee three terms,
and was a candidate for State Senator from
tho Eleventh district' in 180(5. Mr. Plagg

The speaker then told how in 1870 ho
cut himself loose from the prejudices of the
civil war and voted for(Grat. Brown for Gov
ernor of Missouri and the enfranchisement of
all citizens who had taken up arms against tho
Union. He believed then that tho principle
was right and now, .50 years from that time,
all voters, democrats and republicans alike,
said it was right. It was a Republican Para

against the secret alliance with England and
tho German could voto for tho Boors of South

Either horn of this statement is irrational and
