MISSOURI NEWSI'APERDOM. Wht is Beiiur Pone and Talked ANut Throughout the Stale. as It Mis Helen B. Huff has sued the ity of Marshall for $3,000 for injuries received in a fall on a defective side walk. The Johnson county Star says that Warrensburg would be a fruitful field for a nooietv for the prevention of omeltj to animals. Tbe Paris Mercury is printing a aeries of war stories that are very interesting and a credit to the manage ment of that paper. D. J. Briggs has leased his interest in tbe Democrat-Leader, at Fayette, to II. P. Mason. Mr. Briggs goes to Armstrong to accept a position with the Armstrong Milling company bookkeeper. Tbe Sweet Springs Herald objects to Jefferson City folks naming a can didate for congress in the seventh district, and intitiiates that fellows down there on politics bent would find il profitable to attend to their own business. If the cut of Carrie Nation, alleged to have been taken in bathing costume at Atlantic City and wmch was given is the Kansas City Times one day last week was a fac simile of the original, no sane man will attach blame to old man Nation for applying to tbe courts tor relief. "Noah was one oi tbe earliest advertisers," says the Curtis Courier. "He advertised that he would sail on a certain dale. , Tbo who didn't be lieve in advertising failed to get tickets and were left in tbe wet during the forty days1 rain without umbrellas. As most of them could not swim they took to the trees and became monkey a.'1 Malta Bend Qui Vive: A ticket col lector on a railroad got leave to go and get married and was given a pass over tbe line. On the way back be showed to tbe new conductor bis mar. riage certificate by mistake for his pass. Tbe latter studied it closely and then said, "Eh, mon, you've got ticket for a lang, wearisome journey, but not on the Caledonian railway The Mexico Intelligencer has become o warm a political member that Sam B. Cook, its late editor, has come out ia denial of responsibility for its Uttorial utterances. Mr. Cook seem iagly became incensed at the publics Cist of an article criticising William J Dryaa, with which he says be had no oeauection. His denial was published bath in the Intelligencer and tbe Mexico Ledger. Colombia Statesman: Tbe demand for pare, clean newspapers Is as great mi it is for clean, pure pulpits and preachers. A sheet printed in the low language of the back alleys is not fit for family reading and s'nould be ruled out of the borne to make room for high-minded journal wbicb chronicles the news in chaste if not eloquent language.' To be entertaining It is not necessary to be foul. A family news. paper should be cleac and elevating Richmond Missourian: A newspaper is always printed in a rush. There is always something in it that should be left out and something left out that should have been put in ; it is gome time too quick to judge and often too juick to act, but with all its faults and shortcomings, tbere .is more education ia a bright, newsy paper than tbere it a aovel. You will find that the brightest boy on political, sensible, ery day questions, is tbe boy prefers papers to books. Warrensburg Journal - Democrat What is thougnt may be a discovery of considerable importance has taken place on tbe farm of I. W. Mania several miles north of Warrensburg, While digging a wel on bU farm Mr. Mini found Miiithiiirf that was dif ferent from nnyihin ha had ever noticed tMore. II- brought spec imen of lb suhiw in ln and it was extnii'ii-d by xStiie Keologwt Loo ;allaher, whu pronounced II genuine mien. Th erh is aid to be toll of tlie Stuff on lhj Mania fitrai. O. P. Sturm, of the Saline County Index, thus speaxs encouragingly of Marshall: "Notwithstanding the ("sl ing that the short corn crop will de. press business uo lutle for a year, Marshall goes on improving In every way. There are many handsome new homes in the course of construction, several blocks ot new macadam are being put down and one would not tbink that our city even contemplated any change in financial affairs by tbe way she is forging to the front. Mar. shall has steadily improved for the past two years and today she is not even slowing up In her splendid progress." Cbilliootbe Constitution : Several Missouri counties are discussing tbe proposition to issue bonds and macad. amize tbe public roads as a means of giving the farmers legitimate and paying employment to help bridge over tbe effects of tbe drouth and at the same time get 100 cents in profits to the farmers for every dollar in vested. It is one of the most plaus ible propositions that could be thought of under present conditions. It would put money in circulation when it is mostly needed and ibe debt could be paid back in a few years' time from actual profit to the county in the investment. Carrolton Democrat: George Poll- man, of Macon county, is a big-hearted Missourian who displays his pbi!an tbropy in a modest but practical1 way He has a number of tenants on bis land and settlement day came recently Just before its arrival be wrote to each ot them inclosing canceled notes and receipt tn full. He told them tbat he wished tbem to understand tbat they idn't owe bira anything; tbat all be should ask the present year was that tbey tale good care of their families. may bd safely prophesied tbat changes will not be numerous among 'Uncle George's'' tenants in the imme diate future. Fulton Gazette: About tbe least profitable tbing for Missouri demo crats to engage in is personal abuse of one another. Giving voice to imag inary grievances makes tbe tender spot sore, and adds to tbe spleen and ill temper of the one who faocies himself njured. Of course there are sore heads who can never be satisfied and who have very little regard for party wel fare beyond being prominent them selves wbo are going to make a noise hen tbey fill from leadership, but they are of no consequence and are not heeded, and if people would pay no attention to them tbey quicker become silent. Sedalia Democrat: In tbe old days, before Christianity and civiliza tion tamed mankind, it was tbe cus tom, when a man did something you did not like, to "go after" him w'uh a club. Experience has proven, however, that it is better to "go after11 nlm wttn an argument. Most men desire to do ngbt, but sometimes they make mistakes in choosing the road ami. tbey need only to be shown tbe right way. A little forbearance, a little reason, a mental application of the golden rule and a strict adherence to the humanitarian doctrine of "live and let live,1' will sometimes prevent a great deal of trouble, loss and suffering. Here is tbe way Editor Morris, of Trenton Tribune, puts it: Everyone knows the seat hog. He occupies at least four seats on tbe crowded train. He reads at the daily paper like he was working on a salary, with his grip on one seat, bis feat on another and his coat on a third, while other pas sengers stand and wonder at bis nerve. Tbe traveling publio will approve the order of tbe general superintendent of tbe Milwaukee road, which declares that tbe "seat hog" must go. An exenange is ungenerous enough to insinuate tbat the "seat hog" is not always a man, but sometimes a chic person with large, commodious band boxes, grips. Saratoga trunks, para too far. Gallant men everywben ! ... . L I will airree that a woman wuu o bsndboxes, two grips, a psrasol and a lunch box ought to have at least three s-ats. If tbe travelers are the kind of men they ought to be, a young man can be found to take the fourth seat and relieve the lady from tbe ban of the conductor order. We hope the conductor may put a little po'try into Ibe enforcement of the rule when the lady is involved, at tbe tame time making up for his leniency to her by severity on the genuine male "seat hog." Columbia Herald: To tbe man on tbe inside tbe marvel ia that there are so fow mistake in any newspaper, not that the mistakes ire eo many. When it is considered bow many snags are encountered before any paragraph can get safely into the mind of the reader tbat errors are spread abroad by the printed page are not at al strange. There will be difference ot opinion in the first place as to the exact facts. No two people see any incident exactly alike. Tbe writer may report the incident as it is told to him and yet the report may be wholly wrong. Few people tell the whole truth. They do not intentionally tell falsehoods bot tbey exsggerate, misstate accidentally and give partial statements. This report is given publication and the newspaper is blamed. Proceeding further it may he said tbat carelessly prepared copy, bad English or worse grammar may give false impressions. A slip of tbe compositor, a failure to correct a proof-sheet these still stand between tbe reader and the exsct truth. No newspaper worthy tbe name deceives its readers intentionally. Nor are tbe mistakes which are seen in its columns anywhere as numerous as tbe mistakes in ordinary conversation. Before a newspaper Is condemned for an occasional error count tbe many times it bas told tbe tale correctly and compare it with the convention of the most accurate individual you may know. For at the least every news paper is tbe lengthened shadow of some individual or several. WHAT JIISWOCRI HA Census Bureau na Issue an tant Bulletin.
