Strength of the Local Paper.
The local newspaper should be
found in every home. No child, says
theCentervllle Observer, will grow up
Ignorant who can be taught to ap
predate the home paper. It is the
stepping stone to Intelligence In all
those matters not to be learned In
Give your children a foreign paper
which contains not one word abont
any person, place or thing which
they ever saw, or perhaps never
heard of, and bow can yoa expect
them to be Interested?
Bat let them have the home paper
and read of persons whom they meet,
and places with which they an fam
iliar, and soon an Interest Is awak
ened which Increases with the dally
arrival ot the local paper.
Thus a habit of reading Is formed
and those- children' will read the pa

just how to "do things." We have

The Negro Question.
Whenever the negro question is
discussed the politicians raise a great 1
yell. The Republicans as well as the
Democrats attempt to make polit
ieal capital out of every effort to solve
a problem which 6hould not be a polit
ical problem. The question Is one of
Importance and one which must be
met fairly and with common sense,
and not one for the rabid politician
to use as a vehicle in which to ride to
office. Legislation which has for its
basis a difference in color and race Is
not the rifiht kind of legislation.
There Is much cause for the demand
to disfranchise the negro, and there
Is just ax much cause for the demand
that tho vicious and Ignorant voter
ot whatever color be removed as a
balance ot p iwer. The vicious and
criminal wlilw is just as great amen-
ureas the vicious and criminal black.
We believe that the qualifications of
voters In Missouri should be more
closely prescribed by statute aimed
at white and black alike.
The men who pat the negro on the
black and toll him that he Is a great
man and statesman and just as much
entitled to political and Bocial equal
ity as the white man, are the worse
criminals ot the two. Missouri won't
stand tor the negro in office and in
white schools and the negro does not
expect It. The Republicans at Jeffer
son City responsible tor the negroes
who stand around in the corridors
of the state house and who draw
pay from the state are the ones who
ought to be punished Independence
