Missouri is wider awake on the
chool question than ever before.
T'rnni all quarters come requests

Folk the People's Man.
As an ovldence that the people
of Missouri want Joseph W. Folk
for Governor, thorn are elements
endorsing him ovory day who
have never shown their hands in
political matters boforc, and as
they tire voters who believe in
honesty in public ollice, and wish
to give duo credit whoro back
bone has been exercised in the
discharge of official duties In the
face of great odds, they will help
to elect Mr. Folk irrespective of
politics, or political affiliation.
The call for him comes from the
people, and ho should promptly
consent to carry his purifying
elements into the gubernatorial
chair and thus redeem some of
the honor that has been lost by
the dishonest acts of a gang of
legislative boodlers who have at
last been exposed at his hands.
Tho people of Missouri realize
now that they have been imposed
upon .Did the honor of their great
state has been dragged In the
loul and disgusting slime of de
generacy by unprincipled men,
that made a business of selling
themselves to a horde of money
grabbing magnates who found
them willing to betray their un
suspecting constituents for dis
honest gain. These exposures
have brought tho people to a
sense of their duty to an official
who is not found wanting when
the state's honor is at stake, and
they are determined to call
.Tosoph W. Folk to the front
without regard to leaders or pol
iticians, and place him at the
head of state affairs, where he
may exerciso tho functions of
his high office to still further
purify the tainted air that now
surrounds our legislative roster
at the state oapilul.
It is not fair or just to say
that he cannot as Governor probe
to tho bottom this disgraceful
rottenness. He can, and there
are many others to help, onee
they find backing in tho highest
ollice in the state. Wo are will
ing to risk our chances with Mr.
Folk, as he litis proven his ability,
while he has been apparently
blind to all inllui'iices that would
even tend to load him into cor
ruptible paths or swerve him in
fully performing his duties.
This is the kind of a Governor
the people are now calling for
and they demand that he come
Tho county examination for
teacher's certiliuitos was held
on June L'f! and 27. A very
large number of teachers took
this examination, some of them
wisely chose to take only a part
of the examination at this time,
concluding to finish at the August
examination. The privilege of
having two examinations with
out additional fee is greatly ap
preciated by the teachers. This
enables them to mako more ox
tended preparation. Another
recent change in law that meets
general approval is the ronewal
of certificates without fee.

A few weoks ago the St. Louis
Repulic, while favoring Folk for a
"state office, " attempted to show
that ho was too new in politics
and gave other "reasons" why
his name should not be "men
tioned" in connection with the
gubernatorial nomination. The
Republic has evidently heard
from tho country districts, for
last week that paper editorially
declared that "If the body of
Missouri voters unqualifiedly
manifest themselves in fovor of
Folk for Governor, his nomina
tion cannot bo prevented by any
arrangement of porsonal poll
tics." Tho Linneus Bulletin says tho

cess in its town that some of the
