W. W. Ktnloch's new paper, the
Morgan County Republican, has
reaclieil our iicsk, asking lor ex
change. While our exchange list
is already too large, we could not
think of denying the Deacon that
courtesy, of course. The Republi
can is quite a nice paper, same size
as the Democrat, anil has consider
able advertising patronage. We
hope Hro. Kinloch will prosper in
his new field, and if there are any
Indians in that county they will not
get him. Oark Democrat.
Thank goodness, Col., there are
neither Indians or insurgents tip here,
and the getting away from that dirty
mess at O.ark was one of the greatest
reliefs of my life. In fact the Re
publicans of the hill country up here
are so enthusiastically harmonious
they are making arrangements to
drive what few Democrats may be
left on this side of the river after
election up to the "llig Muddy,"
and ship to Kansas on the first boat
An Able Editor.
W. W. Kinloch, formerly of the
Christian County Republican, has
purchased the Morgan County Deni
k rat at Versailles and turned it in
to a Republican paper. Mr. Kin
loch is an able editor, a regular
shoulder hitter for his party, and
don't have to steal his editorials,
like the New lira, from other papers,
but is a writer who commands the
respect of the opposition and holds
the confidence of his own paity. Mr.
Kinloch made an effoitto come to
I'helps county, where a straight Re
publican paper is badly needed, but
the weak-kneed Republicans were
airaui to give mm any encourage
ment. The honest Republicans of
I'helps county are under the control
of the Republican riim iust the same !
is the honest Democrats are under
the control of the Democratic ling,
and the Republican ring don't want a
straight Republican paper any mote
than the Democratic ring wants a
straight Democratic paper.
The Repuliliian organiation
thought it best not to sep.11.1te the
twins, and if a straight-out Republi
can paper was put in the field the
New Kra would starve out, ithout the
aid of the New Kra Republican ring
twin the Iiul-den101r.it ring twin
would pine away and die a natural
And that is just what would happen
with a Republican like Kinloch at the
head of a Republican paper in I'helps
countv, he would soon have put the
Republican ring wheie the Sharp
Shooter has the Democrat ling, both
would have gone into the same hole,
and the hole plugged up. Missouri
Would like to have helped you
plug up that bole.
Our childhood fiiend and com
panion, V. V. Kinloch, former edit
or of the Oaik Republican, has pur
chased the Morgan County Demo
crat at Vcisaillcs, and 1 hanged the
name and politics of the paper to
Republican. Wallace doubtless te
niembers the boundless fields of gold
en rod, the drumming prame chiik-
jens', the hordes of water fowl and the

Well, '-obi man," vou have c-illed
Ui many hsty, hut aWuo.t forgotten,
memories of the long ago when we
were barefoot boys together. Thank
goodness memory don't retain many
of the unpleasant incidents but brings
to us vividly the pleasant ones.
The Morgan County Democrat,
which has been published at Ver
sailles, has been sold to W. W. Kin
loch, a Republican, who has changed
the name to the Morgan County Re
publican. How's that for changing
coats, and all in one little week, too?
Verily, we knoweth not what tomor
row bringcth forth. St. Jatr.es Jour
nal. Well, it was a rather sudden
change the trade was closed late on
Tuesday evening and a "squar deal"
Republican paper issued the follow
ing Thursday morning. Things be
a-moving at Versailles, and a fellow
has to hurry if he gets aboard.
Declines A Sure Thing.
Mr. K. A. Crewson, who received
the nomination for state senator at
the convention held at Tipton last
month, has fully decided to not ac
cept the nomination and has sent the
letter, found below, to the chairman
of the senatorial committee at lloon
ville. Mr. Crewson does this for
business reasons only, and says that .
if he accepts and gives his canvas the!
attention it ought to have, the Demo
cratic land agents will sell all the
land in the county w bile he is up in
Howard county laboring with Demo
cratic voters. He says it is easier to
sell land in Morgan county than con
vince a Democrat in Howard county
he ought to vote the Republican tii k-
et, although evei)body else knows
he ought to do it. Van says if those
llowardites would quit drinking that I
Missouri river water and come down
here and drink the lear spiing water
that runs out of our Oark hills they
would soon sec thiough the mists and
vote like the most of us ate doing
vot'er straight Republican.

There is nlstlng with ninny people
wrong idea of The Kecley Cure they
think it makes one ill for a few days; or
it destroys the mind at first or last; or
that there are hardship! connected with
the treatment. In no case is this true.
There is a noticeable improvement from
