The drummers who meet at the Cape have invited the Southeast Missouri Press association to meet with them May 24 , 25 and 26. Let us accept the invitation. The town of Campbell, Dunklin county, was all under water last week as the result of a cloud burst. The precipitation was the greatest over known even to the oldest citizens of Campbell. Stoddard county farmers are going to put up a supply store and roller mill at Bloomfield. Farmers never have made much of a success running a store or making flour. It is somwhat out or their line. Dexter will likely have a Chau tauqua in August. Charles F. Stokes has been working up an interest and has secured nearly enouah pledges. It will cost sev eral thousand dollars; but some of the greatest speakers and lec turers will be there, including Mr. Bryan, Bob Taylor, W. II. Wallace and others. So says the Messenger. The Southeast Medical asso ciation had one of the best meet ings in this city, that it has ever hadduring its twenty-eight years' of existence. About thirty doc tors from other parts of the ter ritory were present during the meetings, five new members being added. Including the local doc tors, about forty were present. Charleston Enterprise. Last Saturday night just after the northbound Frisco passenger train pulled away from the Ken nett depot and was passing the ice plant, some one fired into the passenger coach, the ball passing through a window near the seat occupied by Judge Ford and At torney D. R. Cox, barely missing the judge, and smashed through the window on the opposite side. It is supposed the shooter was af ter the judge. Campbell Citizen. A man who claims to know says that the best method of de stroying dandelions, docks, plan , tains and other noxious weed pests is to fill any common oil can, such as are used for ma chinery,' with gasoline, then squirt a teaspoonful into the top or heart of the plant. It is claim ed that there will be no resurrec tion of the plant after that. Coal oil is also good used the same way, but a larger quantity may be necessary. Ex. Joseph Weigle and H. C. La tham, who were appointed by the county court to examine the books of ex-Treasurer L. B. Wathen, of New Madrid county, have made a report showing a balance due the county of 810,060.47. The court now has the matter under advisement. Wathen's " bond was made by the United States fidelity and guarantee company, of Baltimore. It is the general belief that the alleged discrepancy is due to careless bookkeeping. Wathen is o'. good family, and was reared here, and is now farming. Ex. To the credit of Charleston be it said that but a email crowd at tended the Jesse James play, given Monday night. Blood and thunder heroism does not appeal to many people in Charleston, and lawlessness is not heroism, though to the young and thought less it may be mado to appear as such. The James books and now the James plays have done much to bring our grand old state into disrepute, and be it said to the honor of the surviving James (Frank) he tried to keep the drama off the stage. Missouri owes it to her good name to frown down such glorifications of crime, unless, indeed, she wishes to raise another crop of outlaws. Charleston Courier. The above is in line with what is right. Good people everywhere must discouraee such things if they wish to raise the moral standard.

SCOTT & BOWXE, Chemists 40-4l rrl Street, New York Mc.an4ll.0O All druggUU From Pocahontas. It seems that some farmers are never going to get their' corn planted as some are not through breaking yet. When the train went south last Monday a week ago (the excur sion day) they took a car load of passengers at Pocahontas. The train was nearly loaded from Daisy and Oak Ridge. At Fruit land the conductor would not let any passengers on. I suppose it was too small a place. The train went on to Jackson where several got on. I suppose Scribbler and Brady did not get to go. to the show. Probably they went on the next i train. That's the way with a lit tle village. Well, you always have one way to go; you can get a tie ticket and walk. ' Ruddle Adams swapped horses Saturday three times. A great deal of trading is going on now. PERRY COUNTY NEWS. Last Thursday about noon, while Charles Polish and five or six boys were eating their dinner in a feed stall near Altenberg, a thunder storm came up. There came a heavy thunder-clap and seeing one of their horses fall they all ran out except Walter Fisher. The horse was not hurt. They returned to the stall and there found young Fisher dead. The lightning had struck him on top of his head killing him in stantly. They could find no place in the roof where the fluid had entered. It seems strange that it did not even shock some of the others as they were all sitting to gether. He was a nice young man about 17 years old. His father is a furniture " dealer in Frohna, Perry county. On this same day lightning struck Mar tin Fisher's barn and it came very near catching him. On Thursday night two colored boys stole or borrowed a load of corn from Mr. Bremer. The boys tracked them the next morning to their home. After denying it for a while they acknowledged the fact, and said they could do without the corn and for Mr. Bremer to take it back with him. Mr. Martin Mangels and wife found their baby dead Friday uiorning. How it came to its death they do not know. Carfo. "I fiianklheLordr' cried Hannah Plant, of Little Rock., "for the relief I got from Bucklen's Arnica Salve.
