Old-Time Eloquence During the session of the Miisouri legislature in 1859, Representative Pitt offered a resolution "that the speaker be authorized to cause to be printed and posted 100 bill announc ing the 8th of January, 1859," and made the following speech in its sup port; Mr. Speaker This house passed resolutions, sir, to celebrate, in an ap propriate manner, the 8th of January.

A ver dict granting him absolute divorce and alimony was rendered before the hired counsel for his wife was allowed to earn his miserable fee. His example has inspired other western married men with courage, and some of the trans-Missouri news papers are calling attention to the numerous divorce bills now being filed by husbands who have been regarded for years past as incurable victims of the apron string. Net among the least serious of the charges preferred against their wives are: Attending bar gain sales habitually to the neglect of their homes; 'rading off their husband's best trousers for decorated chinaware; going to pink teas while the baby had the croup; attending whist parties that ot old bkinflmt, who had a pair of boots made for his little boy, without soles, that they might last the longer I reverence "the day we celebrate."

"Whknevkr an old girl marries," says the Atchison Globe, "some one starts the story that the man has been in love with her for years and yeari. Then why didn't he get her before?

On such oc casions we should rise above party lines and political distinctions. I never fought under the banner of Old Hickory, but, by the eternal, I wish I had.

A newspaper man who recently went up the state to take charge of a rural sheet and give his tired brain a rest has come back to town and is hustling for his old job. " The coun try is all right," he declares, "but there is too much happsning, and I came back to town to find a more restful atmosphere. There were two papers in town, and I had to watch the other one. Both published Fri day, and we could not afford to let the other fellows beat us on news. The firsr issue looked all right, but the old man kicked because we were scooped on the death of a cow on a farm three miles out of town, and would not be consoled when I showed him that the opposition missed a story we had on an accident in the railroad yard. The next week it was the same way; we did not announce that the baker had lost ten loves of bread from his delivery cart, and there was a howl that rather sickened me of the country. "The third week settled the job. We were all ready to start the press when the old man rushed in, greatly excited, and announced that he had a beat. We lifted off one form and waited while the old chap wrote out his story, and this is what I had to kill one of my pet small editorials for: 'We notice that George W. Haskins is making preparations to improve the appear ance of his cozy honae on Protection street. We noticed Mr. Haskins in close conversation with Mr. Smith, . i me painter, whose advertisement ap pears in another column, and learn that he will have his residence painted a light buff, with white trimmings and green shutters, when the weather mod erates.
