Warm Coffee to the Field.
If one is obliged to work in the
field in late autumn, a warm drink
proves most acceptable. Take an
ordinary jug such as wines and li
quors are sold in and fill it with
very hot water, letting it stand un
til the jug is itself thoroughly heat
ed. Remove the water and fill it
with hot coffee to which has been
added cream and sugar. Wrap the
jug in a heavy horse blanket and
it can be carried into the field and
will keep warm for several hours

It is noted that some of the pa
pers are suggest irg Hon. James T.
Lloyd, Congressman from the First
Missouri District, for Postmaster
General under the incoming demo
cratic administration. No better
suggestion could possibly be made
Mr. Lloyd is a clean, conscientious,
able and faithful representative of
the people, and would make a
most admirable and valuable mem
ber of the President's official fami
ly. His universal fairness and con.
stant determination to do the right
thing without fear or favor would
make him an ideal man for the new
order of things.
Mr. Lloyd is our neighbor; in fact
is almost a part of us. Marion
county, which lies just to the north
of us, is in Mr. Lloyd's district, and
a part of that county is within the
lawful corporation limits of Monroe
City. We do not vote for him on
this side of North Border Street,
but if the new president see fit
to make him Postmaster General,
we will certainly join our Marion
County Monroe City brethren in a

one of the best officers this country
has ever known.

a common door key and take the
string in the right hand, holding it
so the key will clear the floor four
or five inches. If you can hold the
key steady it will swing back and
forth in a straight line. Let anoth
er person take your hand in his and
the motion of the key will change
from a pendulum-like swing to a
circular swing. If a third person
will place his hand on the shoulder
of the second person the key will
stop. Try it and explain it if you
can. Auxvasse Review.
