JCMB&KI, Circuit Clark. CHAMP CLARK WAS RIGHT. The Britisher Found the New York Newsboy More Than a Match For Him. From the National Higizlie. Owing to rapid chances in the i weathertbere was an early and fl ur ( ishlug crop of colds this season, and ,as coughs and enetzis were hurd jand handkerchiefs came t.Leu iuto play, Champ Clark dropped into th IBtory telling mood. He Is an old ' newspaper man, and always maid i tests a kindly interest In the news boys, and aujthliig that concerns them makes a lasting Impression on hla meirory.foUe is very proud of I their keen wit, and believes that the American newsboy hnn noqualin repartee or Bhrewdness On the particular mornii g of the story in chilly, frosty January he was waiting on a New York dock while his friend, junk over from En glund.Ssaw to the collection of his 1 linage. t The congressman thought It a goodj'.opportunity to dilate on his favorite theme. The Britisher rather resented his boasting and said that to his mind the London news boy was without an equal. "He is always reudy with a retort, don't - you know, that Is as good as the j latest In',, Punch. The London news ' b." ar ke" students of human : "iture not a detail lu a man's ap penrance is unnoted by them," said the Englishman warmly ! lork kids," he said.

The Londoner, somewhat confus ed, took out his handkerchief, and nothing more on the subject of news boys was mentioned. Champ Clark retired with the gleam of victory In his eye. Sorry For the Horse. The hardware drummer had failed to book a slngje order in the village. "This is certainly a one horse town," he remarked to the station agent, who was checking his trunk. "Well, what do you care?" rejoin ed the local railway autocrat. "Personally I don't care a rap," replied the knight of the grip, "but I can't help feeling sorry for the horse." The Sample Case.

To make a bran mash first wash out a bucket with boiling water, then pour in the quantity of water required, say three piuts, and stir in three pounds of bran. Cover and leave It for two or three hours or more, if not required for i.i mediate use. A mash requireshours to coal eff aud is often given to a sick horse too hot aud is refused when it would have been tak en if properly prepared and fed when waruiiusttud of scalding hot. The addition of a tablespoonful of salt to the ordinary mash can be recom mended to keep down parasltis and promote digestion, but should not be a part of the sick horse's diet un- e.s s specially ordered.

Alfalfa Has Brought Telephone and Automobile to the Sod House. From the Nebraska State Jouanal. . There was not a sign of habitation in sight. There were endless reache of table laud extending in every di rection. 1 remarked to the driver: "We have readied the unsettled wilderness sure." "Oh, no," he replied. "There area good many settlors around here." A turn to the right revealed a vl down oue of the canyons. There on ono Bide was a sod house and beyond rblda of alfalfa, cattle, hogs, horses. farming Implements, carriages and wagons and an immense thick of chickens. A little further on was a valley lu which the alfalfa grew so luxuriantly that there was hardly room on th ground to stack it bvery mile or two there was a fine church and echoolhouses were never out of sight. Out on the hills which bordered the vally there were thousands of cat tie, horses and sheep and In the val ley thousands of hogs growing like Mianghai chickens. You know thad me oia song says: Shanghai chlckeus grow very tall, In a few days. The iaruihouses had hot and cold water in every room and immense barns housed work horses, autoniO' bile and buggies. Automobiles, did you saj ? Certainly. Some parts of that country Is the home of the automo bile. I went to a schoolhouso oue night to make a speech and when I arrived (I came in an automobile) there were eight machines there and three more came afterward, making twelve automobiles surrounding that one little schoolhouse. That is cot the character of coun try that most people ascribe to the sand hills, you suggest. W ell, 'jthe sand hills are not all like that. Such development is only found where they have been raising alfalfa for eight or ten years. Out where there Is nothing but buffalo and bunch grass the sod house is al most universal and lif is made beur- able in them by the rural mall car rier and telephone. Every sod house has a telephone and many of thorn two. The telephone costs from fiftv cents to a dollar Each family buys ' a telephone and builds its own line to where It connects with another. For poles they ush sticks of any sort that are long enough. Often tney nail four-Inch strips on each eh!o of a fence post to raise the wire up above the sut.Uowers and weeds, and lu so"e Instances they still ush the fence wire. But they sav that Is verv un- satisfactory, in the summer time af- 4 ter the weeds trow un alone- thn r n fences or when It rains or there is a heavy dew. After the line Is built an assessment is made each month to pay the wages of the "hello girl" at the little exchanges and repairing the wires when they break. Missouri University News-Letter The old Columbia court house, whlcn was built in 1847, is to be torn down to make way for a new and modern structure. The court housels built in the classic style of architecture, with four large Ionic col umns in front. The Columbia chap ter of the D A. R. made a strong ap peal for the preservation of the structure for use as a museum, but since it would partly shut off a view of the new structure, it has been deemed necessary by the county court to demolish the old building. The classic columns, however, will proba bly be preserved on a mound in the new court house yard. The Rev. H. A.

The State of Missouri spends oue and a half million dollars a year for the support of ita poor, and of the 114 counties of the state, Buchanan, Saline, Jackson and Boone spent! j more than any other counties in this regard, the city of St. Louis not In- eluded.
