THE COURIER IN MISSOURI. A Special Representative Spends a Few Hours at Harris. With the opportunity at hand the Courier man stepped off between trains at Harris, Mo., one day last week and at once welcomed the chance to interview the leading citi zens and "size up" the general at tractions of the town. Harris is one of the strongest com mercial centers along the Missouri end of the Milwaukee and is a midway point between Seymour and Chllllcothe or about elghtytwo miles southwest of Ottumwa. The population of Harris will not exceed a thousand, but what it lacks in numbers it more than doubles In quality and industrial propensities. It is the home of the well known capi talist and fine stock breeder, Hon. Ov erton Harris. This gentleman is a Missourlan of considerable distinction recognized beyond the boundaries of his own state, due chiefly to his owner ship of probably the finest Hereford herd in America. He owns one tract jof 2j200 acres of excellent grazing land that lies in one body and as far as the eye can see it stretches from the wood ed hill lands, across field sections and goes sloping gently down into the rich meadows and there a beautiful group of "white faces," 150 in all, the pride of the community and representing as high a value as $3,000 for either of two of them at least, Is seen convert ing the succulent grasses ultimately into the wealth that enriches the stock raiser, and which sheds a luster upon the vocation that confers much honor. These Herefords are being represent ed by a selection of fifteen show pre miums that appeared in premium con? dition at the Minnesota state fair last week and will go to the Springfield fair, thence to the Kansas City exhibit and are to finish with an appearance in the $80,000 cash premiums show ring in Chicago. The Harris Banking Co. of Harris is officered as follows: Overton Harris, president T. N. Wood, vice president C. B. Harris, cashier Estelle Harris, assistant cashier, and is a strong fi nancial institution with practically un limited personal responsibility. It is thru this bank that not less than $1,000 Is paid every week to Harris stock shippers by the Morrell packing house firm. Another citizen of proifiinence at Harris is Hon. Peter Scott, member of the state legislature, who, with his brother, conducts the leading hard ware and implement business of the country. The firm of Scott Bros., buy their hardware from Ottumwa whole salers as does also the firm of J. N.Ra gan, whose twelve years' residence at Harris has been productive of splen did business results. Among the other citizens we met there, many whose names will be read ily recognized at the leading whole sale houses of Ottumwa are: Mayor Thos. Hopper, N. W. Mingo, druggist L. M. Kidwell, druggist Haley and Kilpatrlck, druggists Triplette Bros., stock buyers Williams & Simmons, millers E. B. Hunt, proprietor Palace Hotel T. J. Daniels, J. H. Morris, C. S. Gates, photographer Mrs. E. M.Camp bell, postmistress, and W. B. Camp bell, deputy N. Seannell, liveryman T. F. Cochran, agent of the Milwaukee. By the above business men and sev eral more whose residences are In the vicinity of Harris, the Courier will be received as a family newspaper for the winter's reading and from Harris as also from Newtown, Lucerne and Powersville will come many visitors to this city's street carnival this week. Let everybody "show them" a good time that they may long remember In an increasing appreciation, the hospi tality and hearty cheer of their Ottum wa friends who value in high esteem their acquaintance.

Dodd arrived in the city Sunday morning in the custody of Sheriff Slutts, and will attend the street fair and otherwise amuse him self until the trial of Samuel Ritchie, one of the Eldon bank robbers, takes place. Mr. Dodd had been visiting at the home of relatives in Clayton, 111., and forgot to return when the Ritchie case was set for trial. The machinery of the law was. put in operation with the result that he was located at Clay ton. Sheriff Slutts left for that place Saturday morning and brought his man back. Dodd has evidenced a re luctance lately to testify against the men who have been captured for the Eldon bank robbery, and it is said, is of the opinion that he has been of enough service to the state in securing convictions, -»but will doubtless tell what he knows on the trial of the Ritchie case without any trouble.

The thief entered the house thru a rear window. Mr. and Mrs. Harris occupied a room in the second story and the intruder entered their room but neither heard him. He overlooked two gold watches and a revolver that were lying on the dresser in the same room.

HOUSE BOAT. A Most Delightful Outing Home for Those Who Desire It. The new C. P, R. house .boat which is now completed and ready for occu pation has been visited by a large number of Nelson people, all of whom declare it to be an ideal outing home. The boat is completely furnished in. every respect.. Thie four state rooms with their four double and four single berths are equipped with everything one would desire ih a' bedroom at home. In the dining room is'all that a dining room requires, silverware, glassware, etc., and the room itself'is sufficiently large to accommodate any party that could travel ,ou the boat. The kitchen is complete, too, and in fact, there is nothing lacking .any where. All of the rooms are carpeted and the hallway is laid with oilcloth.' Upstairs you are in the open air, with an awning to shield you from the sun and a hammock if you would lay down and read and rest. No more delight ful place, to spend a week or two, could be imagined, provided, of course, the boat is anchored in some one of the thousand beauty spots of Kootenay Lake. Nowhere, perhaps, in all the Dominion of Canada is there a body '.of water offering to the ma,n of the reel and fly or he of the gun such induce ments as are offered anywhere on Kootenay Lake, and nowhere are there more .delightfully secluded places than can be found here. And it is to giye visitors the opportunity of seeing all this, under most pleasant conditions,, that the C- P. R. has caused to be built this house boat.' It is to be rented to parties and at a figure which makes'it witnin the reach of everyoue who can afford an outing. The boat itself will rent at $5 per day, with a minimum charge of $20. It Will be' towed to any, point that can be reached from Nelson at the regular towage charge Of 50 cents a mile, with a minimum towage charge of $5. All that those who rent the boat have to do,- Is ,td stock1 It with eatables and drinkables. Nothiog 'else is required by them unless they deslte a servant and this the C. P. R. officials will undertake to secure for them. For Sale. Cheap lots in Central Addition, Buy now. We have sold a number this month. H. L. Edmunds, Agent. Read the Courier tor news.
