The Supreme Court of the State
has reversed the first cf the St.
Louis boodle cases that has reached
it. This was what was expected.
It will be noticed by the public
that the reversal is the result of
technicalities raised by the lawyers,
and not on the merits of the case.
The Supreme Court does not lay
the boodler wa not guilty, but he
was not tried right The court does
not say he was not charged with a
ctime in the indictment, but he was
not charged in just the right form
of language. No wonder we have
mob laws in this country.

goods, made in Chinese cottages

The law requires every candidate
for office to file an itemized account
of money expended to secure his
nomination and election, with the
recorder of deeds and county clerk
The law also limits the amount to
a certain per cent of the salary of
the office. The intention of the law
is a!! right, but it can be easily
avoided if desired.

Iter. Irl IC Hicks 1003 Almanac
To say that this splendid work
of science and art is finer and better
than ever, is stating it mildly. The
demand for it is far beyond all pre
vious years. To say that such re
sults, reaching through thirty years,
are not based upon sound sense and
usefulness, is an insult to the intel
ligence of the millions. Prof.
Hicks, through this great Almanac,
and his famous family and scientific
journal, Word and Works, is doing
a work for the whole people not
approached by any other man or
publication. A fair test will prove
this to any reasonable person. Add
ed to the most luminous course in
astronomy for 1003, forecasts of
storms and weather are given, ai
never before, for every day in the
year, all charmingly illustrated with
nearly two hundred engravings.
The price of single Almanac, in
cluding postage and mailing, is
thirty CKNTS. Word and Works
with the Almanac is $1.00 a vear.
