I Mk in the Democratic coinentious 01 the year. Mr. Bryan has shown that he will yield nothing-. He continues to offc bis leadership to all willing to follow. It can be taken for granted that he will not close the door upon bis Populist and Socialistic friends, and that he will retain as lartre a section of the Democratic party as possible. In the recent campaign Bryan forced it to accept bis alignment after making ready to be the nominee' of another nartv in the case tbe Democratic National Convention ignored his plat form demands. The Democratic x'CTganization could not afford to show its weakness and yielded, though by 10 amall a margin that the feeling of teneral dissatisfaction was clear. Mr. Cleveland, In articles recently Published, practically declares that . &ryan is not a Democrat. Mr. Bryan - ktists that Cleveland is not a Demo So the first necessity for the Prty is to draw the line for itself. Afer comparing the records of the tw" men, Cleveland seems to be more of Democrat than bryan. yet Bryan ia' Polled the two largest votes ever 1 givo a Democratic nominee, f.nd claid, lhat tne great mass of the Parl ig ith him. On the other hand, the yetting of 6,000,000 votes is dis appointing wheii coupled with defeat. Now thM Cleveland and Bryan are definitely pltc airainst each other in prinW arguments, the debate in thi party is likely to grow extremely Tbe Democracy is opwnly The Populist cement is a failure.

God, solid e.Tort must be expended if either is achieved. The state provides every necessary iaciiity for securirg the former ic the. public schools, and the boys or girls who fail to avail themselves of the opportunities offered, genera' ly, have only themselvts to blame. J he college is a splendid auxiliary ) j under tlx: existing act. would exeeei thedisiiurseiuont if the appropriations should eijual tiie demands for money asked by the heads of the different departments. Of -.ie-ise, the appro priations ran be iejit below th-e esti mates of tiie amounts of money which the heads of the department say they want, and probably they will be. This is the reasoo why the bouse agreed to cut the revenue $40,UX).000, although the secretary" estimate, based on the present law aad on the figures of the amounts asked by the department heads, pointed to a surplus $14,000,- 000 below this mark. Some of the Republicans intimated ttiat the Democrats' attempt to get congress to make a $70,000,000 cut at this time was incited by their htipe at ti.is ivmi.d produce a defi.-it like that of a few years ago under Cleve land, and in the early days of the present administration, and that in this way party capital could be made for the Democracy. The Republicans of the senate, of course, will consider the chances intelligently and be guided in their action by tbe prospects for revenue which tbe continuance of the present prosperity afford. The pru dent and exp.rie.nced men of the ways and means committee of tbe other chamber thought that $40,000,000 was all that could safely be taken from the revenue at the present time, and the country :aces a good cea" of conn dence iu their judgment.

This new road which has just lieen tompleted is the most valu able feeder to Cape Girardeau that it has yet had. It. runs for the most part through a well settled, highly produc tive agricultural country, and the possibilities which it opens up for this city can hardly be computed. Most, If not all, of the business men of the city are a unit in tbe opinion that by reaswn of this road their business will be greatly increased, and the commer cial importance of the city correspond ingly enlarged. In the old days befoie Cape Girar deau had a railroad, people ttiio were in bad health and who desired a nice, quiet place in some outaide corner of the world where they might end their days in peace, steered for this city, and many found the peaceful end here for which they longed. But all this has changed. We now have three railroads here and another in con templation, and the former graveyard has developed into a li veb comme:v5l city which is well and favorably known in the great trade centers of the Mississippi Valley. To say that Loeis Houck is largely responsible for this change would be merely stating a act that is well known to all citizens who are ported as to the history of their city. In order to get his first road built and running into this city, Mr. Houck was com pelled to face obstacles and discour agements which would have proven insurmountable to most men, but he pressed forward with his indomitable energy anc jx-rseverance until be tr. ! overcome all in hi wav anil sue eel ii in the plan he '.au iu vie...

Mrs. Albert's death was not unexpected she had been a great sufferer for five or six months, during which time expert treatment had been given her, but her family and friends were forced to realize that all was of no avail and that her hold on life was gradually weakening. About four weeks ago she was brought home frem the hospital in St. Louis to spend her last days on earth surrounded by her family to whom she was an ideal mother. The disease which held her in its grasp was painful in the extreme but she bore her sufferings with th patience and resignatioa of a noble, christian character. It is particularly sad that the grim messenger of death should have selected Chri itma day upon wnicn to lorco n.s unwelcome presence into this happt aome an i snatch therefrom the wito ard mother Mrs. Albert's married Hie nftti been spent almost entirely in this coininun ity and she proved herself au object of admiration and imitation.

Many who have achieved great wealth have died, leav ing behind them the opinion that it does not. In this connection it must bo under stood that there is a radical difference between wealth and competency. It is tha duty of every one to achieve the latter, if possible, and it is possible if only good health will abide with the individual and sound morals and eco nomic habits are encouraged. This is not saying that it is not commendable to accumulate wealth. ....tij.n u-hi.'li f. it-mi-i I V ei-hf leil lit ? Il t . the blood Pure and Rich and give the-, . . , . ..

It was the brain, th-T ability and the energy of Mr. Houck which has wrought these changes, and it would be no exaggeration to assert that he has done more for the progress and development of Southeast Missouri than any other one hundred men in that section.

Mr. Shiyellu.ie (Jideon J. and Ilarrat She and Leon J Albert, now cashier of the Slurdivant Bank, were marri.-: at Cape Girardeau Jun 2. 161. There were sons and daughters lorn to this marriage, two daughter passed away in early life, and the remainder now share the sorrow of their fa'her. Mrs. Albert became a member of the Presbyterian Chu.-cn in this city on January 22, 1871, and was ever loyal to the church of her choice. In religious and social matters she was prominent; and, in the societies of which she was a member, her loss will be keenly felt. The people of Cape Girardeau mourn her departure, because she was a womanly woman. Her life, as seen by those with whom she lived, is a better eulogy than many written pages. In this instance words are weak. Funeral services were conducted at the home by Rev. L. Humphreys of the Presbyterian Church, and the inter ment was in the family lot at Lorimier : Cemetery.
