Old Missouri Getting Right.
Two important measures have been
before the Missouri legislature the, past
week and at this time It looks pretty
much like old Mizzoo was going to
'show" the. rest of the world that sho
is the good old state her' nntl.ro ions
and daughters boast sho Is, and that
a is going to throw off tho curso of
the open saloon and at the same lime
.rant equal suffragu to men and wo
men. Both measuies wore pasted by
the lower house of the legislature this
Acek. There is good reason to bollove
that thoy will also pass tho. scnato by
i good majority. Missouri, wo havu
nver been proud of you but when you
enter the "dry" and "equal suffrage"
ulnss, we'll be more proud than ever
that we saw tho li rat light of day with

He May Be a Fake.
Last August H. R. Martin, of Wootl
WBrd, representing hlmsalf as agent for
the Farmers' Underwriters Insurance
Co., of Fort Worth, Tejtas, camo here,
mado a d-ntrnct wltlj McLarty Bros, to
insure their stock of goods for thlrty-
flve hundred, with Just & Noyfold for
thirty-five hundred, nnd with A W
Kuykendall t Son; each paid half
down and gavo their nots for tho bal
ance. Since that tlmn nnno of them
have evor heard from tho so-calleu
agontof the Insurance Company. They
haye not been called upon to pay their
notes, neither have they received their
policies. It Is also reported that this
agent mado contracts with six business
men of LaKemp and secured consider
able cash from them. He was rocntn
mended to our merchants by Mr
Baughman. of LaKmp, but who now
clams ho ''Id not know anything about
him. It begins to look as If tho smooth
agent was a grafter and had hit upon a
great get-rich-quick scheme, but as
our mernhants have written to tho
company at Ft. Worth, a correct ver
sion of the affair cannot be reached
until word is received from them.
Beavor County Republican.
Every oneo In awhile one of theso
fake insurance agents shows up and
fleeces the people. It would be far
the best policy to tnrn down all such
traveling agents who represent them
selves as Insurance rvrlters, and take
nut your policy with the local home
agent who is responsible, and you
know he is what he represents hfmself
to bo. It Is a pretty safe bet Hat tho
who patronize every Tom, Dick and j
Harry of an agent win geiaiuogsooiiwr
