Colombia Statesman: Tbe demand

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

He has a number of tenants on bis land

may bd safely prophesied tbat

'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.
