Kev. J. I.. McKee of Kansas City
and J. K. Stephenson of Parkville
were here this week on business.
'These two ministers are seeking a
.site for a Presbyterian College and
several towns arc bidding for the
institution. This is to be quite an
extensive college and if a proper
effort is made on the part of our
public spirited citizens it is possible
Versailles can secure it. They were
in consultation with K. A. Crewson
and others here during the week but
no definite action so far has been
taken in the matter.
John H. Snorgrass, one of the pro
gressive farmers living near town, has
our thanks for a box of potatoes
which are hard to beat. They were
of the Hurbank variety and the box
contained nearly a peck which had
been dug out of two hills. Kvery
potato was large, smooth and perfect
in every particular, and were calcu
lated to take the premium in any
company. With such beauties Mr.
Snorgrass should select a box for the
street fair exhibit, as they are above
the ordinary. We fully appreciate
the donation as there is considerable
Irish in us when it comes to potatoes.
From clippings of the Quincy,
(III.,) Herald we arc informed that
the Midland Lyceum Bureau, who
will furnish the lectures and enter
tainments to be given by the Ladies
Progress Club of Versailles this fall
and winter have given a high class of
entertainments in that city. The
ladies of the Progress Club, under
whose auspices our citizens will be
favored with this high grade class of
entertainments, deserve the highest
praise for their effort, and we feel
that there are enough citizens inter
ested to make a grand success of the
:ourse in this city, it being of higher
order than the ordinary traveling

Jas. k. Clark's Trouble.
"Oklahoma City, OK., Aug. 18.
J. K. Clark of Sedalia, Mo., a dealer
in fancy horses, is in jail here charg
ed with the killing of I. S. Deford, a
traveling salesman. Both had been
drinking and upon reaching the top
of the stairway at the Stewart hotel a
quarrel ensued. Clark is said to
have struck Deford with his fist.
Deford fell down the stairway and his
neck was broken."
The above dispatch was published
in last Sunday's daily papers, and as
Jas. K. Clark was formerly a citizen
of this city it created no little sur
prise, from the fact that both Mr.
Clark and his family were considered
among our best citizens during their
residence in Versailles, and many
could not believe that he would be
implicated in a murderous affair as
indicated above without just cause.
The following dispatch in Tuesday's
dailies exonerates Mr. Clark:
"Oklahoma City, Ok., Aug. 20.
A coroner's jury today rendered a
verdict exonerating J. E. Clark of
Sedalia, for the death of I. S. Deford,
who fell down a stairway while the
two men were scuffling, Saturday
night, Clark's preliminary examina
tion is set for tomorrow."
Jim Clark lived here for a number
of years, and was considered a well-to-do
citizen. He was a local poli
tician of some note and' was for a
rime chairman of the democratic
county committee and during the
session of the Missouri House of
Representatives in 1003 he was door
keeper and filled the position with
credit to himself. That he had a
temper was demonstrated during the
time he held this position. While
in charge of the door Senator Self of
St. Louis tried to run a bluff on him
and the result was that Clark knock
ed him do wo, anil the act was one
among the famous things which oc
curred during that memorable session.
His friends will hope to hear that
there is some reasqn other than a
mere brawl behind the present
trouble, and that the disgrace of
murder may be lifted on account of
Mr. Clark's good family.
At the preliminary hearing held
Tuesday Mr. Clark was exonerated
of the death of Deford.
