The report Bays: 'The committee fesls that it is ju the members f the Grand Army 0 Columbus that they give the rea ion for rejecting the emblem. The pargon in whose mind the design of tbat emblem originated, has by his lUUmects placed the committee in i fall attitude so far as rejecting the emblem ia concerned. ' "The chairman, in accepting the wreath, did not know what entered into the formatiea of the emblem. When it was learned that the design contained the emblem of the Ameri can flag, supported by an arm cloth ed ia the Confederate gray above and an arm clothed in blue beneath, aaoy member of the Grand Army of the Repuolio entered their pro tests against the plaoing of the em blem upon the mound, in language that could not be misunderstood. In regard to the objectionable features 1 of the emblem, the gray arm being placed, not only above the blue, but on the emblem at all, was the only objection to accepting the emblem.1' Bucklen's Arnica Salve The Beet Salve in the world for oats, bruises, sores, ulcers, salt rheum, fever sores, tetter, chapped hands, chilblains, corns, and all skin eruptions, and positively cures piles or no pay required.

FARM LOANS. We have the cheapest money to loan ever offered in the county. Call on us. Re fern to CaptaiQ Jehnsoa. A Bpecial correspondent writing from Martinsville, Ind., to the Ham ilton county, Ind , Ledger makes the following reference to Capt. John son, now undergoing treatruetit at the Sanitarium at that place: "Lyiog upon hia back in this hotel is a young captain of tbe Spanish-American war. By his 6ide is his constant, devoted young wife, who ia nursing him from a!ajost death's door back to life again. There is something touching and worthy of admiration iu the &tory of this couple. The young man was captain of a company of Missouri volunteer. Hia regiment was located at Chickamauga and afterwards moved to Lexington, Ky. List Sep tember while in camp there the Cap tain was drenched by a heavy rain. He caught cold and rheumatism fol lowed. He was a man of fine form and bad passed the best physical ex amination of any man in his regi ment. But this availed him nothing against the dread disease and he was thoroughly in its clutches. Death seemed inevitable. His parents and sweetheart, to whom he had been engagad for some time, were notified of his serious condition and went to his bedside Tho young girl, in order to give her betrothed better seavice as a nurse, thought it best to become his wife. A license was secured and they were married. TTrom that hour to this she has been con stantly at his side and given him every attention possible. The dec tor tells me tbat he was almost a skeleton when brought here in Feb ruary and stiff in nearly every joint. He is now able to use one arm and the doctor thinks he will be on his feet in two months. Such suffering and trials are the legitimate fruits of war. But nations are built and civ ilization advanced by suo h saeri fices." Beats the Klondike. Mr. A. C. Thomas, of Marysville, Tex , has found a more valuable dis covery than has yet been made in the Klondike. For years he suffered untold agony from consumption, ac companied by hemorrhages; and was absolutely cured by Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption, coughs and colds. He declares that gold is of little value in comparison with this marvelous cure; would have it, even if it cost a hundred dollars a bottle. Asthma, Bronchitis and all throat and lung affections are poti tively cured by Dr. King's New Dis covery for consumption. Trial bot ties fren at H. L Tucker's Drug Store. Regular size 50a and Si.

The coal miner' strike at Rich Hill has not yet assumed serious proportions. Some have quit but the large majority of miners remain at work. Monday afternoon two meetings of the miners were held, one at the opera house and the other in the park. Tbe meeting at the opsra house was held at the instigation of Sapt. W. B Williams, who desired to aseriain the wishes of the minerB under Lis jurisdiction. At this meet ing Amos Manchester was made chairman, and Henry G. Meyers secretary. After speech making by a number of miners present, a motion was made to submit the following demands to the company: First, That a uniform price of 50o and 5oc per ton be paid the miners the year round 50o for coal 3 feet 9 inehea and over, and 55o for coal under that height; second, that the company pay every two weeks; third, the rails be brought within reason able distance of the face. A motion was also carried to present a griev ance of the drivers and day men in regard to a nine hour day. At the meeting no reference was made to striking. The first of tbe week indications were that there would b9 trouble in the mining district and Sheriff Mudd was petitioned by the mine opera tors to be present. The Sheriff re sponded to the call, but so far there has been no need for his services. There are about 200 miners out, and the matter f a strike appears to hinge almost entirely upon the action taken by the miners at No. 15, the most important mine in the fields. Is tt Malaria or Alum? Popular Scientific MontUly. Languor, loss of eppetite, indiges tion and often feverishness are the common symptoms of a physiologi cal condition termed "malaria." All these symptoms may be and fre quently are the effects ef the use of alum baking powders in food mak ing. There is no question about the poisonous effects of alum upon the system. It obstructs digestion, prostrates the nerves, coagulates and devitalizes the blood. All this has been made clear, thanks to phy sicians, board of health, and food commissioners. So "highly injurious to the health of the community" does the eminent head of the uni versity of Pennsylvania, Dr. Barker, consider the alum baking powders that ho says their sale should be "prohibited by law." Under these circumstances it is worth the while of every housswifo to employ the very little card thai is necessary to keep eo dangerous an element from the food of htr family. A pure cream of tarter baking powder, which is the only kind that should be used, ought to cost about forty-five to fifty eents a pound. Therefore, if you are pajiag much less, something is wrong; if you are paying twenty five cents or less per pound, the powder i3 certainly made from alum. Always bear these simple facts in mind when purchasing biking pow der. Footpads at Webb City. Webb City, Mo , June 3. On the streets here last night footpads held up and robbed Mrs. Shiers, Mrs. Peppers, H. L. Dodscn, Will Stcd ard, T. F. Coyne and H. G. Gastcn, securing in the aggregate $30 in money.

Dr. Archibald Windham on the village 6treet, "what does this meat? I thought you were laid up with all sorts of bsd disease:" "And eo I wa8," replied tbe rever end gentleman "I had an attack of indigestion and from that time on my wbrl9 BjEteui has been in a dis ordered condition until I began tak ing Hood's Sareaparilla which has put me on my feet and cared all ray stomach troubles v 'I don't doubt," said the lawyer. "This same medicine cured my wife of rheumatism and my little girl of gcrofula. When they say it s the best medicine money can buy, they only tell the truth." "Yes, yes, so they do," replied the minister, and the two passed ox -No Stamps retjiiiivl on I deposits drawn at counter No Trace Js Left Ktatoa. Webb City, Mo., June 3 Last !

McKissick, de livered at the close of the public schools there recently, he being one of the graduates. The young man shows acquaintance with current affairs, and in his talk, taking the Monroe doctrine for a oasis, emites expansion hip and thigh and lays bare the false and cruel work of the republican administration in its deal ings with the Cubans and Filipinos. The young man shows he is an honor to his raising and the Clay county stock from which he sprung and we regret that lack of space pre vents our giving his speech in full. Another brother, Edward, graduated at the same time. Both are sens of our esteemed friend, J. J. McKis sick, who formerly resided in Faubion Chapel neighborhood, and one of tho best men that ever lived in the county. Liberty Advance. Free Fills. Send your address to II. E.
