He was trying to beat bis way to some point in Iowa where bis father lives. There is some doubt which ha tbe better claim to try him for larceny, the civil or military court. The Constitution is incensed at the action ot Gov. Stone in pardoning from the penitentiary one Harry Hudson, who in cold blood murdered a merchant, of Chillicothe, in Aug ust, 1888, named Openheim. In January following, Uudson was sent to the penitentiary for 50 3 ears. Governor Francis commuted the sentence to 10 years, and now Gov ernor Stone fully pardons him. We, ot course, know nothing about the case, but if tbe facts are as stated by the Constitution, the governor has hit upon juct the right method to encourage mob law in Missouri. Thirty youug men were trans ferred from the Kansas penitentiary last week to the stale reform school. E3)q You Wash? OF Coarse - 1 po you Wash QUICKLY? IDlfTrDo you Wash EASILY?

Short or Long Sermon. The Columbia Herald asked the ministers, of Boone county, how long the Sunday morning and even ing ssrmons should be. Itr. Babb, Baptist, thought that 15 to 30 minutes was long enough. Rev. Roiselle, Declple, believes in a full hour. Rev. Penn, Baptisrtthinks the fixed time should govern, "but tbe sermon should vary in length in ac cordance with the interest shown by the congregation. Rsv. Nollaer, Methodist, considers HO minutes as a rule long enough. Rev. Barbee, Baptist, favors 30 minutes in town and longer time in tbe country. Rev. Winders, Deciple, favors long sermons. Rev. Uaupin, Methc-dist, consid. ere 30 minutes long enough for eith er morning or evening. Rev. Kendrick, Methodist, favors 30 minutes with a margin of 10 min utes on either side. Rev. Monser, Deciple, 35 minutes in winter and 25 in summer. Rev. McGuire, Baptist, 30 minutes both morning and evening. Rev. Sharp, Metbodfst, brevity in warm weather, say 20 to 25 min utes; 30 to 40 minutes when cooler. Rev. O'lWly, Catholic, should not exceed forty minute?, 20 minutes can be made to do good service. Said an old preacher: "Half an hour for God, tbe rest for the devil." Rev. Hatcher, Baptist, 20 minutes is too long far a poor eermon and an hour is too short for a really crood one. s Josn liiuings said, "a preacher who does not strike oil In 40 minutes is boring with a dull auger." Dr. 11. K. llinde thus expresses his views on the eubject: "Your queries presuppose the fact that the preach erwill deliver two discourses the eame day. 1 am already on record in our own church paper, that one first-elass sermon is all the average preacher is able to construct and de liver in one week and attend proper ly to all bis other duties. I claim that it would not only be better for the preacher, but mere profitable for the congregation to have one ser mon on Sunday. One good sermon Is as much as tbe average congrega tion is capable of digesting and as similating. Instead ot a sermon on Sunday night I would have the preacher conduct a Bible class com posed of his entire membership. We have a surfeit ot declamatory preaching and a famine of exposito ry preaching. But my opinion is not asked on this eubject. In regard to tbe length of sermons I answer categorically and laconically. For ty minutes as a rule in the towns and cities. Country congregations will want a whole loaf one hour." A child is born, the doctor gets 10, the editor notes it and gets 0; it marries and the minister gets $10; tba editor gets a piece ot cake or 00. In course of time it dies, the doctor gets from f 5 to $100 and perhaps the minister gets another $5, the un dertaker 25 to $50; the editor prints a notice of the death and an obituary a column long, and a set of resolution of some organization to which tbe deceased be longed, and be receives 000.

One of the reasons is she is patrotic- v and etands up for France, si: v.-. In a late case before a-French' ! court a creditor had sued on a note -j payable in gold, and tie court, held the proviso void on the ground that I ono sort of money issued by France A was as good as another and to disv criminate in favor of either one was a conspiracy to injure the govern-. i ment and its credit, and that the -i debtor has the right to pay in any thing insued by the government as . money. - "' That doctrine, a sound and patrio tic one, if enforced in this conntry, would bring Secretary Carlisle np with a round turn. There are no. . mijr ceui uepreciaiors auoweq in France, a fire franc piece being as mnch money as a Napoleon.

No wonder hJ France is prosperous, as .her Jaw-.-, makers and her courts are as patrio-' r tic as her people. No high officers ol state are there engaged in depreciat ing the money issued for the nee of her people. It is morally a crime in the United State? and ought to be held as an offense at law by our own courts; possibly it will be some day.
