If, on some fine morning a man jumped out from an alley and punched you in the jaw, split the right ear, knocked out four teeth, closed the off eye, broke a rib or two and stepped on your corns; and then after you had gotten warmed up and your "second wind" and had be gun to return blow for blow and was gradually growing stronger and your assailant weaker, some one happened along and asked what you were fighting for, what would be your reply? Not so loud, please. It is to be hoped that the legis lature and the governor and s everybody else in Missouri will help along the election contest. Let every office be contested ; let every ballot box be opened and the ballots recounted; let the sunlight of investigation reveal the truth the whole truth. The cry of fraud! fraud! fraud! is getting on. ouri nerves. We are prone to believe that there has not been fraud and corruption in every election and the only way to forever still the howl' of the defeated is to have the reg' istration books audited and every ballot recounted. If there 'has been fraud let the guilty suffer. Misses Edna Geary and Ruth Starleton went to Blackburn Saturday for a visit. Mrs. Harry Hoekensmith went to Wellington Saturday for a few days' visit.

McGAUSLAND HOW A GARAGE MAN GOT EVEN Was Fined at Independence, Hut Later Got a "Crack" at Police Judge. From the Cass County Democrat. He who lives by tne graft, must get touched by the art. Be sure your "gyps" will find you out. Lay on the law when you are the "cheese," but damn the man who gets back at you. "Time at last makes all things even, and there never yet was human power that could evade, if forgiven, the hate of he who ! treasures up a wrong." "Ven geance is mine, and I will repay," sayeth the garage man. Several months ago a Lexing ton, Mo., garage man, one who has a minting privilege of that municipality, through the sole right to serve "flivvers" in that section, traveled to Kansas City in one of them. He went and returned via Independence. Be it remembered that this village is recorded in the notebooks of all motorists throughout the verdant valley of the Missouri as being vindicatively hostile to all vvno venture therein with so much as splotching the Statutes f the State with ttie slightest spot, intentionally or otherwise. It is famed for having dreadful ogres, who, clo.thed in the majes ty of the law, strike terror in the hearts, and tear rents in the "b.-mkroll" of the autoist, whose tail-lights are not flaring, whose front lights are not subdued, and whose license tag is not in the exact, prescribed position, and so forth and so on. The lad from Lexington was well-content with himself as he neared the corporate limits of in cubus Independence on his re turn trip. He had carefully in spected his little sloop from stem to stern before he left the port of K. C. and was well sat isfied that things were in ship shape; the barge was blowing along high, wide and handsome. As he passed a broad-girthed, flat-footed "copper," he was charmed when he heard him blow his whistle, thinking it was a salutation of respect. At the next corner, a bigger "copper" flagged him down, say ing, "Come on, yez lights on the back of yer bug air on the blink." Although the Lexing tonian showed the bracket was yet warm from the lamp that had been lit, he was "trimmed" for a "finnif" and a "half-saw- him to 'muss up his Manhat- i1" Here's where the proverbs in Lafayefte county was fooling around among' his coingetters, when a caparisoned "gentleman of color" chauffeur came in to have some repairs done on a large schooner in front of the garage. Mr. Lexiigtonian sent a machinist out to do the job, which was finished in a few min utes by installing a new part. The charges would have been $2.00 and the garage owner was about to tell the inquiring, liver ied Ethiopian so, when he glanced out of the window and saw the owner of the motor car was the freebooting, predatory Independence police judge, -who parted him from the fifteen good dollars. He told the dingy the amount of the bill was $2.00 and costs, the latter being $15.00, a total of $17.00. The Republican reported to his boss, who came a-bucking and bellowing like a bull, whose caudal appendage had been tied in a double-bow knot. The "Justice of the Gar age" reminded the "gyper" from Jackson county that it was rude to rumple his raincoat and harrow his hair, and, further more, the longer he harangued, the higher the tariff would be. The boy who lives hard by the Little Blue "planked down." . Notice. Those desiring to enroll for the Night School pleae meet me at the High School, Thursday even ing, January 4th, at eight o'clock.

That the generrl type of the motion picture play is not ob jectionable is the opinion of the representatives of the Greek letter societies of the University of Missouri. A campaign aganst Columbia playhouses showing the general run of the silent drama is being carried on by the women's organizations of Columbia and of the Univer sity. A vigilance committee to discourage the showing of the plays by attending only the ones considered worth while by the organizations, has been appoint-' ed.
