of Milwaukee, who got away with one
million and a quarter dollars of that
institution's money in grain gam

Fortv graduates of the law depart
mentof the State University were ad
mitted to practice in the supreme
court in Missouri on motion ot Judge
Robinson, a teacher in the law de
partment. The court convened in

them as practicing attorneys of Missouri.
Congressman Champ Clark spoke
at a meeting held at Mexico Friday,
and took occasion "to call attention
to the menace of mail order houses
to all other classes of business,' so
the dispatches say. Then the story
of Mr. Clark's address stops. It is
presumed that Mr. Clark advised
home merchants to advertise as a
means of protecting their trade
against the ravages of mail order
establishments. These latter places
are building up large trade through
advertising, and home merchants, in
order to protect their trade, must
meet them through a vigorous cam
paign of advertising, in which they
have all advantage through their
local press. If Mr. Clark did not
make these facts plain he overlooked
a splendid opportunity. Nevada

ASUSPIEASASTDCTY.
The Clay county jury which con
victed Agnes Myers of complicity in
the murder of her husband resisted a
morbid sentiment against the hang
ing of a woman, no matter what her
crime, honored their county and the
great state of Missouri by bringing
in a verdict in harmony with the evi
dence and in conformity to their
oaths, although the verdict was re
pugnant to every finer tensibi ity of
their natures. To take a human life
that which can never be replaced
to send a human soul upon its jour
ney into the unknown and unknown
able tor a final reckoning ot the deeds
done in this life, is a matter ot seri
ous moment, and when men in tbe
discharge of a duty they owe their
state and society calmly sit injudg
ment for that purpose, it requires all
their fortitude and manhood.
We are all loth to telieve tbe test!
mony ot a partner in crime, who con
feeees to save himself, and we admit
that where the crime is a horrible as
sassinatlon and the witness a self
confessed assassin, we refuse to take
his unsupported word. In this case
the man Ilottman, as detestable a
creature as ever went unhung, al
ready convicted ot murder and sen
tenced to hang, voluntarily testified
against the woman and not only
makes her an accomplice, but tries
to throw the whole of the blame up
on her and make ot himself a halt
ing, unwilling tool. We would like
to believe him a cowardly, cringing
liar, but unfortunately tor the wo
man every point in his story is cor
roborated by circumstantial evl
dence so strong that it is impossible
to reach any other conclusion than
that Agnes Myers is guilty ot one of
the most revolting, dastardly, cruel
and heartlesss murders In the history
of criminology. It is almostpast hu
man belief, that this frail little wc
men, weighing less than one hundred
pounds, could deliberately cut her
husband's throat with a razor re
peatedly, he being held by an accom
plice, after beating him over the
head with a bed slat and stabbing
him in the back with a pair of shears.
It was a revolting, sickening crime
and to think that this woman could
remain alone through the dead hours
of the night with her husband's
mutilated remains, and try to con
ceal the evidences that would con
nect her or Ilottman with the
crime is almost past belief.
What manner, of a woman is this?
While we are chivalrously inclined
and desire to protect the weaker sex,
we believe the punishment should be
fitted to the crime, and there is no
reason why a woman should commit
cold blooded murder and escape the
extreme penalty therefor. We sin
cerely trust, for the honor of the
state, that the prosecuting officer
has made no deal with Hottman
whereby he will escape the gallows.
Drainage Notice.
Poverty and Scholarship.
Whenjou read that sixteen stn.
dents won honors from the Univer
sity ot Missouri this year remember
that nine of them battled throughout
atrainst a pitiless poverty, writes
Fred Kelsey, tbe press editor for the
University.
The valedictorian of a class of sev
enty eighf supported himself for a
year alter entering me university oy
acting as a kind of scavenger for the
University Boarding Clubs. When
he finished, he was assistant in oneot
the laboratories. The winner of the
f 300 prize for the best progress dur
ing the senior year in law, paid his
expenses throughout by bardmanuel
labor. 'Another $300 prize In the
law department went to a young
man who bad fought poverty from
the beginning of his career. Saving
a little money from teaching, he en
tered the University where he pieced
out his allowance by acting as agent
for various student supplies. On the
day of his graduation, his proud old
mother, radiant through the deep
lines ot self-denial, was with him to
share his triumph manly spirit this
worthy of the true Missouri boy.
The two girls who were fortunate
to be in the honor list laid the foun
dation of their support by teaching
before coming to the University,
During their course they managed to
keep down expenses, by doing clerical
work.
To detail the story of the other
four would be to repeat. They, as
tbe others, are the splendid products
cf a system of education that fosters
genius wherever tocna. ;
TheMoberly (Mo.) Democrat says:
It seems that Grover Cleveland, like
Senator Vest used to, believes In wo
men ruling the world, but not by as
suming man's duties or manlshwaye.
Hlft .de'crlptinn of an ideal wife will
not meet the approval of all women,
but it will of most men. lie says tne
ideal wife is "a woman who loves her
husband and ber country with no
desire to run either." The facts are,
such women wield an influence that
is ten thousand times more powerful
than the strong-minded, over-strenuous
kind that assume the rights and
manners ot both sexes. These may
be old-fashioned views but are yet
essential for happy homes.

Dissenting Report
To tha Honorable Coanty Coart of Bate
County:
A one of the viewer appointed to local and
report on tho feasibility of a new channel for
th Uarlas DeaCygn River, I cannot agree
with my associates. Th preliminary work not
being thorough enough to juitlfy a favorable
report.
A topographical turvty tbould be mad of
overflow land In order to calculate th volum
ot flood, th channel and other avenues of es
cape, do not accommodate. Having determln
ml this quantity, wa must add to It th volum
scaping by route other than channel, decrease
la discharging capacity of the channel caused
by lowering th flood lin thereby reducing
croat lection area and fall of th channel.
Mot having a topographical survey from which
to eomput th volum or th flood, w wlU
venture an analysis of water that escape by
route other than channel. Th river bank be
ing th hlgheit, all water that run over th
banka, and tbat back out through (lough
and Intersecting creek la composed ot two
part. An accumulated surplus, and that
which escapes by natural water way to lower
levels down tha river.
The varlou railroad have provided four
hundred to twenty-five hundred feet of open
ings to carry water that I not dead water that
tb channel cannot discharge. We therefore
tyle this a ater escaping by routea other than
ebannal.
Kow we hav th flood divided Into three
part; Water escaping by channel, water ea
caplngby routes other than channel and dead
water atanding oa the bottoms often ranging la
depth S to 10 feet, add to the two laat quantities
the decreased discbarge of th ohannel, and wa
have what Hie propoied ditch must carry t
prevent overflow.
A ditch of the capacity propoied would re
quire twenty ilayi to dispose of a four foot flood
dead water If it cam at th upper end of the
ditch and bad an unobstructed outlet, 8ueh
overflow will often come up In six day. Th
ohannel and other avenue of escape will dli-
poke of auch a flood la about alx daya after th
water commences to recede.
Bell In bi November report claim the dltsh,
by reason of straight alignment. Increased fall
and shortened distance will ditcbarge five time
a much water as ths old channel. That being
true a very small per cent of flood water Is eon-
lined to the channel.
In our calculation we have assumed the fall
or the ditch from Haymaker Mill to Belvoirford
to be thirty-one feet. But II we lower tbe flood
lin sufficiently to ore vent overflow, we de
crease the rail or the ditch, just as much aa the
flood line i lowered, giving the ditch for the
last ten mllea a very alugglih current, If any.
If tbe ditch will prevent the flood, It fall can
exceed ten Inches per mile; If It doe not
keep the water off, the fall la of no consequence.
Tbe work of tbe drainage board In regard to
investigating tbe feasibility of tbe project was
a rarce, no attention being given to anything
except a route for the ditch end tbat we only
considered In a general way.
