How General Grant Lost His
Not many Americana know
that Hiruin U. Grant was the
eighteenth president of the
United States. Yet it is true,
for "Ulynses Simpson" was never
legally the name of our groutest
general. This interesting fact is
brought out by Franklin IJ. Wiley
in the Ladies' Home Journal for
September, in "Famoiie People
as We Not Know Them." The
story of Iiow it came about was
told by a member of congress
Thomas L. Iiaraer who recom
mended young Graut a n candi
date for West Point in 183!. Mr.
Ilam-r hud long been it friend of
the Grants, but when he cume to
make out the application papers
for Ulysses he could not reoill
the boy's full name. So, decid
ing Unit he was doubtless named
for his mother's family, ho wrote
it "Ulysses Simpson Grant."
Thus was it recorded at West
Point, and though the attention
of the oflicials was several times
called to tho error they did not
feel authorized to correct it
This name was gradually
adopted, and by it Grant was,
and alwa3'S will bo, known. But
as for any mcord of the birth of
"Ulysses Simpson Grant,'' lhat
tl.jes not exist.

Mlssourlans' Plain Talk,
Hon. Lon V. Stephens, in his
''Sharps and Flats" department
of the Boonvillo Advertiser,
makes tome intortwting extracts
from a letter wrHten by Hon.
Thoir.as Shevokleforrl, Glasgow's
veteran lawyer and party worker.
"Are those of us who stood
squarely -on the Chicago and
Kansas City platforms to stultify
ourselves by now repudiating
what wo then believed to be
right?" indignantly asks this
democratic stalwart. "It Is no
use," he says, "to disguise the
fact that whenever the demo-
cratio party puts forth a platform
against bimetallism as aUnnneial
policy it might just as well throw
up the sponge." Then ho mhU
significantly: "It is moro ob
vious than ever that a convention
of the mass of tho democratic
party needs to meet to arouse tho
people to a sense of tho impend
ing doom to the party. The
great mass of the party will not
stand a condemnation of William
J.Bryan, flirectly or indirectly,
in any future platform."
T-x-Gov. Stephens' quotes his
language approvingly, adds on
his own account that the "great
est mistake the democratic party
oyer mado in Missouri was when,
ninety days ago, a convention or
conference, as suggested by Mr.
Shuckleford, was not held. Sub
sequent developments in Ohio,
Virginia, Pennsylvania and other
states, even in Missouri, demon
strate the correctness of this
position. The responsible par
ties are known, and will not
esrafpe famishment.'' Many of
the ex governor's democratic ene
mies said the Pertle Springs con
vention idea for 1901 was his own
device, and was not favored by
any other prominent member of
the party. Col. Shackleford's
words hero.quoted, however, ami
the expressions of many other
veteran democrats, as' given by
Mr. Stephens in previous issues
of the Boouville Advertiser,
show that even if the Pertle

There, is a significance in the
views of there democratic wiir
rlors which ought to command
the prompt and eurnest attention
of the Missouri reorganizcrs. The
action of the Iowa democratic
state convention the other day iu

form shows that the democrats
west of the Mississippi do not
take kindly to the notion that
they should efface themselves

Pennsylvania and other eastern
democrats who were not able to
carry their states in l.)tJ or 190C,'
and who can not curry them in
!U04 on any sort of a plutform,
or on no platform, are not going
to be allowed to dictate the course
of the national democracy in ihe
coming canvasses. This is the
position which Col. Stephens
and tho rest of the 'democratic
thoroughbreds take. These west
ern democrats say that the men
who havo been fighting the
battles of tho democracy, and not
the men who have beou casting
republican ballots, should frame
the platforms anil put up the
candidates of the democratic
party. If the United Stutcs is
going to retain pditied parties--and
republican government can
not be mainta:ned without them
there will havo to be courage,
consistency and continuity in
their direction and policy, as
ex-Gov. Stephens points out.

It has been observed, says tho
official organ of a leading f rater
nal organization, that higher
civilization and fraternal societies
bear close relation to each other.
In evidence of this it is only
necessary to refer to the fraternal
institutions of the United States
and Great Briti.in, note tho
numbers, both as to societies and
numbers, and it will be readily
observed that tho fraternal
institutions greatly exceed those
in countries not claiming uch a
high degree of civilization. There
can bo no doubt but lhat the
leveling up of conditions of so
largo a proportion of "our people

impresses those directly con

by example to the advantage of
others. Our fraternities distrib

We are thankfull to Bro. Kies
for publishing in English in the
Volksfreund last week all ho
knew about his publishing road
and bridge notices.
He has a contract he tells us to
publish the road and bridge
notices nt-S ecntu per line less
(whatever that means) than he
charges for locals. Wo also
must publish these notices under
a contract, and we cannot see fdi
but that it Is a needless -expense.
Ho-wrrer, if the peoptc ami the
court are satisfied with this nr-
rur.genient we can tand it. We
havo given our jtifitiion of tho
matter, and tiave nothing to re
trnct. Bro. Kies is a good,
clever fellow, ami we arc sorry we
took a job away from him, but wo
