Joseph "Winpate Folk, the ideal

The fruit crop in Missouri,
taken as a whole, is perhaps
nearer a failure than for any
year in the history of the State.
The condition of apples compar
ed with an average fruit crop is
only 9. The peach crop is also a
practical failure except along the
Mississippi River hills in South
east Missouri, particularly in
Perry county, where some or
chards report a good crop; also
in the south central Ozark region
in the neighborhood of Koshkon

An exchange puts it right
when it says that there is
no reasonable excuse for any
man to live in a town if he does

of commendation to say for your

emigrate. You won't stop the

play just as well and the pure

Ivj LIrs. Jdy' Suit.
Tho suit which had been
brought agnst Mrs, Mary Pa
ker Eddy to tost her capability
to manage her own affairs, has
been discontinued by the plain
tiffs. The instigators of the suit
failed to rind sufficient testi
mony, to provothctr point and
tho result was that this remark
able woman showed mental abili
ty and vitality beyond the aver
ago person of 83 years of age.
It Is generally regarded that
the suit was filed as an attack on
this aged leader of Christian
Science by a few yellow journal
ists seeking sensational news; to
prove her friends disloyal and
herself incompetent, and to
brand her religion as a fraud.
At all events the suit failed in the
original purpose of the plaintiffs
and will no doubt stop many of
the cynically inclined people
It matters not what her views
may be or whether they conform
exactly to ours, Mrs. Eddy is en
titled to the respect of the peo
ple. Her sanity has passed the
test of celebrated alienists and
her mind has been tmimpared.
Such a proceeding as was insti
gated should have been kept out
of the courts.
After Bryan's return from

But the inconsistency of Bryan
is now shown in his striking out

Th ftw State Primary Law.
By tho new primnry nw in
Missouri tins qualified voter of
tho state must make a choice of
candidates for elective tflkera,
except city officers, county su
perintendents of schools or vil
lage or district officers at a state
primary to be held on tho first
Tuesday in August every second
year. Tho first election under
this statute will occur August 4
next, but at least sixty days be
fore that 'date candidates for a
state office must file a petition
signed by at least one per cent
of the vote of his party, and this
one per cent must bo distributed
over at least six different coun
ties. Candidates for a county
office, sixty days before the pri
mary, must file their names and
addresses with the county clerk,
state the offices to which they
aspire, and the party on whose
ticket they will run. For county
offices this personal declaration
In the case of congressmen, at
least two per cent, of the voters
of the district must petition for
his candidacy, and this two per
cent, must come from at least
one-tenth of the precincts of one-
half the counties in the district.
Each signer of a nomination pa
per may sign but one such paper
and shall declare that he intends
to support the candidate named.
adding place of residence and
date of signing. On the primary
ballot at the August election a
space will be left where the voter
is to write his choice of ward or
township committeemen. At the
ensuing general election in No
vember the voters will indicate
their choice for United States
Seaator. Thus tbe voters of
Missouri themselves are to take
the place of former state conven
tions, except in the choice of
presidential electors and dele
gates to national conventions,
who are to be chosen in such
way as the state committees may
prescribe. It is peculiarly the
duty of voters to familiarize them
selves with the provisions of the
new state primary law. Globo
Dem. Two Things Demanded.
Tho Topeka Capital says edi
torially: "The law gives every
man the same right to work that
any other man enjoys whether
he belongs to a union or not, and
the law should sit down hard on
the man or set of men who put
forward tho undemocratic prin
ciple that no man may work un
less he is the member of some
union. It may be desirable for
every workingman to bo a mem
ber of a union, but it cannot, un
der any righteons law, be com
pulsory. Every man should be
free to decide this question for
himself, and a government that
is entitled to his loyalty as a citi
zen will see that he is protected
in that freedom. Two things
that are rightfully demanded pf
the government are that strikes
must not be permitted to para
lyze the commerce of the country
or of any community, and that
every man willing to work who
can find an employer willing to
employ him, must be protected
in the right to work unmolested."
