Good Missourians are getting
tired uf the saloon. They are find
ing out that it makes men poor,
make3 them quarrelsome, makes
them reckless, makesthem corrupt,
makes them like bad things instead
of good things; that it increases
vice and crime, insanity and dis
ease, immorality and lawlessness;
that it hurts business, that it in
creases instead of decreases taxes',
that no good things come out
of it and that they can get on
better without it than with it.
Sixty-four counties of the State
Nineteen others have no saloons
outside of the one big town, ' hav
ing more than 2,500 inhabitants
and would be all dry if they had a
county unit local option law. Twenty-two
counties have voted on the
local .option question in the last
twenty months -most of them the
second time -and all went dry but
Gentry increeses its Dry majority
930 to 1087.
Henry increases its Dry majority
from 780 to 1135.
Madison increases its Dry major
ity from 5 to 440.
Pulaski increases its Dry majority
from 320 to 1034.
Nodaway increases its Dry ma
jority from 633 to 1806.
Andrew changed a wet majority
of 69 to a Dry majority of 632.
Lewis changed a wet majority of
71 toa Dry majority of 593.
Clark changed a wet majority of
156 to a Dry majority of 375.
Nine cities. Lamar, Aurora, Mar
shall, Columbia, Richmond, Kirks
ville, Higginsville, Slater, Cameron,
after being Dry four years, all voted
to stay so another four years.
Missourians Are Not Fools.
They would not vote this way if
they didn't find it to their advant
age. But having learned by exper
ience that business is better, that
men ore more temperate, industri
ous, economical, that boys are not
so easily led into temptation and
hence grow up into better citizens
where there are no saloons - they
are saying by increasing majorities.
"We Will Have No SALOON In
Our County." - Adv.
Not In Vain.
Not being able to secure enough
fresh water for a water works sys

abandoned at a depth of 2150 feet.
The casing nearly all pulled except
a 1000 feet in the 6-inch casing
which will remain in order that the
people may be able to secure the
excellent mineral water which
comes into the well at a depth of
1500 feet and comes within 80 feet
of the top of the well.We believe
that the people will greatly enjoy

where she had neen in the care of
the good sisters during the past four
months. She suffered a paralytic
stroke several months ago and dur
ing her illness she evinced the pa
tience of a saint and the heroism of
a martyr. She had the supreme
happiness to receive the last Sacra
ments from the hand ; of her worthy
son, Rev. T. E. Cusack, pastor of
Morrisonville. He was by her side
constantly during her last days on
earth: he closed her eyes in death
and fortified her pure soul with his
blessing as it sprang from the em
brace of the body and winged its
flight to heaven. She was a native
of Ireland and came to America
with her parents who lie buried in
St. Peter's cemetery. After her
marriage to Patrick Cusack in 1870
they settled on a farm in Missouri
until the death of her husband in
1876 Left alone with four small
children she sacrificed herself in a
most heroic manner in order that
they might receive a genuine Chris
tian education an education that
would fit them for the battle of life.
There were three boys aDd one girl
the boys developed into men of
whom any mother might well be
proud: Rev. T. E. Cusack, of Morri
sonville; James P., of Indian Creek,
and John B., of Denver, Colorado.
The girl was always the mother's
joy and she became the saintly Sis
ter Fidelis among the Sisters of St
Joseph. She died in 1904. Mrs.
Cusack also leaves a sister, Mrs.
Hildebrand, and two brothers. John
and Bernard Masterson.
