Moore, chairman of the Dem ocratic central committee of Chari ton county, was called to St. Ixmis to attend a meeting of the state Demo cratic central committee and ail the chairmen of the several county com mittees of the state, who had been in vited to be present, for consultation concerning plan? for conducting the campaign this year. There was a very large attendance. All the state committeemen were there and every county in the state was represented either by the chairman of the commit tee in person or by proxy. The plan formulated was organization by school districts for the county campaign. Dcsidcs the members of these re spective committees there were present a large number of leading Dcmocatic politicians of the state. The cnthuasi asm for free silver and 'Hand and the coming together of these gentlemen, charged with the coodnct of their party machinery was a kind of political love feast that will not soon be forgotten by them. We hope they githiud a sufficient volume of Democratic fire while consulting together and compar ing notes in Su Louis to sct-the woods on fire after returning to their respec tive homes, and as a result there will be a larger Democratic majority in Missouri this year than has heretofore marked the present decade. IJut the members of these respective committees cannot do all the work, necessary to be done, themselves. Let every Democrat in every county, and in the state, lend a helping hand to the organization. If he docs so a splendid victory will be achieved. In comparing notej on the state ticket the conclusion was reached that Stephens, I.csevcr,Sc:bcrt, Uamcyand Pitts were in the lead for governor, secretary of state, state auditor, su preme judge and state treasurer, re spectively. In fact, it is said, that it was easy to be seen the nomination of these men is the program to be carried out by the silver men of the state. In reference to the strength of Jordan and Crow for attorney-general the opinion is said to have been divided as to which is tn the lead. To Prevent Lycloaes. Prof. Itadcn, of the water bureau at Washington, has a plan for destroy ing approaching cyclones or tornadoes before they can do any harm in thick ly populated towns. It is well known that water spouts which threaten dis aster to ships at sea are rendered harmless by being shot with a cannon ball. He proposes to accomplish the same with cyclones and tornadoes by shooting them with dynamite. To do so, of course, requires preparation. Cyclones almost invariably move from thr southwest to the northeast, and Prof. Baden's plan is to prepare for ihem along their route by establishing lookout stations extending north and couth so as to interpose a barrier on the danger side from which the re volving storm inwardly comes. This barrier would be made xfTcctivc by means of a system of dynamite bombs onncctcd with the station by wires. Guards to go on duty when warned by the signal weather bureau service showing conditions favorable to cy clones. On seeing a funnel-shaped cloud approaching, the operator would simply wait until it got near enough and then touch off the cartridges, which would blow it, the funne!-shapcd cloud, into smithereens. Of course it would cost something to construct the stations, but if tie plan is really effective, the cost of it would be a small consideration compared with the desnucjon of a cyclone like the one that recently visited St. Ixmis, which is said to have dsttroyed $20,000,000 worth of property, to say nothing of the loss of li'c. An Incocpeisat Critic. The on!y left-handed compliment paid the recent souvenir edition of the Courilr was inflicted by the Triplett H(ra.U whoss editor murmured of what he was pleased to call "rocky proof reading." There is no room to doubt that Ilrothcr Ross is a competent judge of proof reading as the following words in the last issue of the Herald unquestionably prove: "Rccieve," "cuckle," lightening," "Caines," "re paring," 4,occassions,M excelent,' "marning," theirselves," ccmetary," "appropcratc," "hcroicly," etc 11 The above errors do not include a number of mispunctuations and sever al instances of bad grammar. The Courier, always quotes criti cism from those who arc competent to criticise, but under the circum stances wc seriously object to so in competent a critic as "Editor" Ross throwing rocks at ths souvenir or any other edition of this paper. Let him first cast the beam out of his own eye and then he shall sec more clearly to cast the mote out of his brother's eye. ; The S:reet Fakir.

We arc not disposed to interfere in the quarrel between the Salisbury Democrat and the Chariton County Republican as to the relative merits of the two Salisbury dailies that were issued by the Democrat and Press Sccfa.'jr dunng the late commence ment exercises of the Salisbury acad emy and North Misiouri institute, re spectively, but wc can not forbear en tering our protest against the justice or truth of the Democrat's claim that it was the first morning daily ever is sued in the county. If "Grandma" Dismukcswill scratch her head and do just a little thinking, the old lady will no doubt be able to call to mind that the Courier issued a morning daily for three or four suc cessive years during the palmy days of the Kcytcsvillc fair. Our daily was not a try-daily," that is, got out one day and tried to get out the next, but we got out six consecutive issues. Our innate modesty forbids our say ing anything as regards the daily Courier's merits. It told its own story. In the history of Chariton county journalism we believe the Courier was the first paper that ever published a daily within the county's borders. The Democrat will please paste this on the office cat's back for future ref erence. Qaxrterly Meeting. Rer. J. R. A.

Wetter If Not Wiser. Lewis CI ear kin and Miss Susie Clark, of Triplett, had rn experience Sundiy they will not socn forget, says the Mendon Citizen. The stopped in Mendon to wait until the rain was over, and when they started home and reached the branch south of town they found the water running over the road. The team was headed for the bridge and they started to cross, but when they reached the st: earn the bridge was gone ani the water was so swift that it floated the young lady out of the bug gy and she lodged against a wire fence on the west side of the road. Mr. Qearkin swam to her rescue and car ried her to a place of safety, then, with the help of some parties who were near the scene, the team and buggy were gotten out without any damage being done to either and the couple started for home, wetter if not wiser. Township Mass-Meetings and Cctsaty Convention. Democrats, don't forget to attend your township mass-meeting on Satur day, June acth, at which dtlegate3 will be chosen to the county conven tion to be held at Keytesvillc on Tues day, June 23rd, for the purpose of electing delegates to the judicial con vention at Pcrtle Springs on Tuesday, June 30th, to nominate a candidate for the Kansas City court of appeals; the state convention at Jcflerson City on Wednesday, Aug. 5th, to nominate candidate for the various state offices, and to the Second congressional dis trict convention to be held at Chilli-4 cothe on Tuesday, Sept. 8th, to nom inate a candidate for congress. The basis of representation to the county convention has been fixed by the county, central committee at one delegate for every 50 votes or fraction of 25 votes or over cast for Wm. J. Stone for governor ia 1892. Under this representation the vari ous townships are entitled to delegates as follows: Townships. No. Delegates. Bee Ilranch 3 Rrunswick 8 Howling Green 2 Clark 3 Cunningham 3 Cockrcll 2 Chariton 2 Keytesvillc 11 Mendon 2 Mussel Fork 3 Missouri 2 Salisbury 16 Salt Creek 2 Triplett 4 Wayland 4 Yellow Creek 2 Total 69 Wc sincerely hope that every true and loyal Democrat in the county will be present at his township mass-meeting to-morrow, and that a full and fair expression will be had by Chariton county Democracy as to their choice in namin? the Democratic nominees. No lack of enthusiasm should pre vail, for a silver plank and the adher ence of correct principles on the issue of tarifl reform are now, wc be'.ieve, assured by the national Democratic platform, hence the prospects are bright for a sweeping Democratic vic tory on the 3rd of next November. Iet every Democrat, then, do his whole duty to his party and his coun try by contributing all in his power in again putting down Republicanism and all of its attendant evils in foster ing trusts and combines and giving legislative pap to plutocracy by rob bing the comsumer for the benefit c the manufacturer. Letter Us. The following is the list of unclaim ed letters in the Keytesville, Mo., post office June 19th, 1S9& Mr. Henry Hand, To'Jy May, Mrs. Elizabeth Nester, Mr. Casper Smith. When calling for the above letters please siy 'Advertised." John Ohyess, P. M. Suckers Will Bite. Iist Monday night Keytesville was visited by a ccuple of shatpers. who succeeded in "doing" the town, or rather in catching a string of "suckers' to the tune of $10 or $15. One of the men, who had a wooden leg but not a wooden head, first sang several songs, with a banjo accompani ment, and was not long in attracting quite a crowd. The vocalist took up a collection after siugiog several airs and secured as much, perhaps, as 75 cts or $1. He was followed by a companion, who dubbed himself as "Crazy Bill, from over the hill, who never told a lie, and never will." Demented, but truthful, William commenced operations by offering for sale several cakes of soap at 25 cents a cake. He sold several pieces of this soap, and not only gave the pur chasers their money back, but 25 cts. on top of the price paid for it. The soap sales were superseded by William's placing "a scalp wash" on the market at 50 cents a bottle. With each bottle sold, William counted out $1.50 to which he added the 50 cts. the price of the scalp wash and laid the $2 down in front of him, leaving the impression that he would give the $2 to each and every pur chaser of a bottle of the scalp cleanser. But Billy didn't do it. He just kept on selling scalp wash and when he had made all of the sales possible and presented each purchaser with a re ceipt to make soda pop, he hastily, but gracefully, shoved the money into his pockets, blew out the light attach ed to his wagon, addressed his team in French, tipped his hat and drove off. Yes, suckers will bite, but of course the Keytesville suckers who bit last Monday night would, no doubt, like to see "crazy Bill" sent to the asylum. But there are people who insist that Billy's patrons should accompany him to such an institution to take treat ment, too. We timidly suggest to those who purchased irrational Billy's scalp wash that they use it on the inside of their ncads instead of the outside. Tbeaallstin Water Strip. One of the most perfect little in ventions of the aire is the Gallatin water strip, sold by Geo. W. Conrad. The undersigned citizens, of Key tesville, have tried it and guarantee it to keep water from running under an out side-door, save carpets, keep out cold, etc Hugo Bartz. J. E. Dsmpsey. W. T. Rice. J.

DeMoss' court in Keytesville last Monday to assault ing his brother-in-law, John F. M. Meyer, a week previous, and was fined $3 and costs. The total amount of Imgartcn's fine and costs was about $16. It seems that the trouble grew out of an opprobrious remark made by Meyer to Imgarten while the latter was passing the former's house, whereupon Imgarten dismounted, seized a club and ran Meyer several hundred yards, but was prevented from doing him bodily injury by passers-by. Subsequently Meyer had Imgarten arrested, with the result already given- A. O. U. W. and D. of H. Picnic. B. I. Chapman, M. W. of Mendon lodge, A. O. U.

W. are invited The Mendon brethern became tired of waiting for arrangements to be made looking to the holding of a union picnic by the several county lodges of the D. of H. and A. O. U.

Intha Ward, col., of near Dalton, by Justice C W. Steiman on the 25th o January, 1896. Their marriage was the result of at "compromise by which. TrenJt agreed. , V to marry, the Ward girl, who was under age, if she would withdraw the suit she had brought against hint charging him with seduction undec promise of marriage. The matrimonial alliance thus en tered into proved to great a burdens for the bridegroom and he left his bride the same date on which they were married.
