As we have said be fore the summer institutes should be abolished. Our thanks are due Rv. H. J. Burton and we feel under many obligations to him for so kindly furnishing us the proceedings of the K. and D. of T.. which met in Columbia last week and aiding us in selling about 75 copies. Such manifestations of interest can never be forgotten. As was predicted by the Pro fessional World, the Negro State League meetings to have been held in Springfield and Sedalia, proved to be all wind. There is now no Negro State League in Missouri. A few political grafters have elect ed themselves to offices in the sup posed negro leagues, for the pur pose of bleeding the state com mittee and political candidates next year, but they will be proper ly placed before the people before that time. Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications as they can not reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by con stitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by cm inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the EnstachJ ian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deaf ness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this (tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be de stroyed forever ; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condi tion on the mucous services. We will give One Hundred Dol lars for any case of Deafness caused by catarrh that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars, free. F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, O.

Was Formerly a Preacher in Missouri. Lamed, Kan., Aug. 5. R. B. Williams, a negro tailor, shot and killed Clyde Langdon, a white man, tonight, following a quarrel over a suit of clothes. A mob went to the jail for the purpose of lynch ing the negro but the sheriff had taken the prisoner away on an east bound train. Williams was formerly a Metho dist preacher in Missouri. His last charge being that of the New Bloomfield circuit and lived at New Bloomfield in Callaway coun ty, and run a tailor shop there also.

The grand session of Odd Fel lows met in Fulton last week and held the most successful grand session ever held in this state. The reports of officers and com mittees show the order to be in a thriving condition. Grand Master, Lee Harris, of Kansas City, who has served in this capacity for six years, deolined re-election, and Mr. Chas. Lewis, of Kansas City, was elected in his stead, Mr. Wm. Burton, of Columbia, was elected deputy Grand Master, all the other old officers were retained. The business session closed early Thursday morning and the lodge in company with the household of Ruth visited the insane asylum in a body and assembled in the chapel of the institution and listened to an excellent piano recital by the famous J. W. (Blind) Boone of Columbia. They were then ushered through the building by Mr. Geo. Overton, who has been an employee there for a number of years. A grand picnic and ball game was held during the after noon. Music was furnished by the Jefferson City band. MOBERLY CELEBRATION A FAKE. The much advertised and talked of celebration of the Emancipa tion Proclamation proved to be a fake on Tuesday Aug. 4th. Cele brations of this kind should have some meaning, but the affair on last Tuesday proved only to be a scheme to deceive a large crowd of people that went to Moberly to see great things and saw nothing, and only had the pleasure of spending their railroad fare to Moberly, and being charged a double price for everything they got to eat while there. Even a drink of ico-water could not be had, except if it was paid for. Not a speech was made nor was the great advertised pro cession mentioned. People should be discouraged from going to Mo berly on Aug. 4th, since it has be come to be only a day of highway robbery for those who go there. AUXVASSE ITEMS. (Too late for last week.)
