A few weeks ago arepresentativect
the Chicago Canning and Improve

solcited stock buyers. A number
of citizens tinned what they believed
to Ijh an application, but which now
turns out to he a cod tract- Aoother
agent now offers to compromise oa
tie reciept of $2.50 for each $100

Mrs Pete Hare, an ebony hued
dama-l, and "Jack the Ripper" both
of Moberly have been sentenced by
Judge Mcench to 15 days each in
the county jail. The Harse woman
accused "Jack" of stealing her pock

ieve her story.
The Populists of the county have

A new "iloodo" trick on the mer

by a stranger. He purchases a nick
les worth of candy of a grocery mer
chant and presents a $5 bill in
payment therefor. As the change is
about to be made he exclaims. "Oh,
never mind changing the bill, I have
a nickel". The merchants thera
cpon hands back tbe bill which the
wonld be purchaser put a in his pock
et. He there upon discovers he
cannot find tbe nickel, and reaching
down in bis pocket pretends to hand
out tha same $5 bill, but which ;a
really a $1 bill. The UDAiispcting
merchant bands out $4.1)5 change,'"'
and the "beat" leaves that much .
ahead of the came.
