"DUMMY" McCLANAHAN SHOT Becomes Insane ind Causes t Panic in a Hungarian Boarding House "Dummy" MuClitnahan, the name by which ho is generally known, a denf unite young man, became insane and at a late hour last Monday night entered a Hungarian boarding house. where he began lo smash up things croitting a general panic among me inmate. He got possession of a butcher knile and was about to enter the room of the keeper of I hi! house. when the latter picked up a loaded gun nml In alatm shouted to him lo stop, but "Dummy" continued to ad vance and lliu Hungiiiian fired, the shot taking effect in "Dummy's" leg, making an ugly wound. Ho was was placed in a room and kept till morning, the Hungarian sayiug lie was afraid to go out ut night to givo notice of what bad oocuued. The wounded man was brought to the Faruiington Sanitarium next day, where he was examined by Dts. Haw and MeCor- mick and pionnunced to bo violently insane. He was sent lo State Hospital Xo. 4.

The condition of our streets tiic past two or three weeks has levived a spirit of street improvement. The Business Men's Club held a special meeting one ni'lit this weuk at which it wus de cided to petition the liourd of Alder men lo net in the mailer. A town of F:u niiiigton's importance and pielen itions ought to have good, substantial streets, and it locks us if the only way that tins can bn accomplished is to tax the propel ly huldeis along tlio streets, in proportion to their propetty front age, to a sullicictit amuiint to cuver the cost. Under the law the Board of Aldermen has the authoiily lo do this, but has probably hesitated be cause of the hardship it might work ou some of the propeity holdeis to meet their proportion of the tux. II the board can get the consent anil back ing of the property holders it would certainly act, and wc believe It is the purpose of the committee of the Busi ness Men's Club lo try to get them stitlieieully interested to petition (he board to go ahead with the work. An estimate of the cost by the cubic van' or running foul of the grading and paving or macadamizing, whichever pliin is considered the most prucliblc under existing conditions and thu abil ity of tlio property owners to pay, should bo made, and then if the work is decided upon, let out by tiie board on contract. Unless souiolhlug of this kind is done, we arc not likely to ever have good streets, for the revenue de rived from ordinary city taxes wiil never bo sufficient, with tlio other mu nicipal expenses, to mako good and substantial streets that will stand the tramc of a city like Faruiington. Saloon Shooting Scrape. George Kotchner fired two shots at John Boarman, barkeeper at F'ltz goraiu a saloon at Daytown, near Lcadwood, last Tuesday, but missed him, when Boarman lot bim bave one, hitting him in tbe arm.

A Worthy Benefit. V united effort is being made by the old soldlets, both the Blue unci the Gray, to cstublish a National Park at Pilot Knob, Missouri, which also in cludes the fatuous Kmcrson l ark at lionlon, Mo , where Grunt received his first eoiiiuiissioti. 'The establish ment of a National Park at this point means much to tho pnaplo or St. Fran cois county and vicinity, for thero is not a National burying ground III Mis sotiii; and it will not only advertise this section, but will givo us a place where we can take our friends with a great deal of pride and pleasure. You now have an opportunity to contribute to this worthy cause by at tending the "County Chairman" at tho Opera House on the evouiug of February 1st. We can say to those of you who have not seen the play, that it is a late, up-to-date comedy, written by George Ado, acknowledge to bo one of the best playwritors of tho times. It is full of fun, comical situations, and has a vein of politics extending throughout the play that will amuse you beyond your fondest expectation. It is well worth the price of admission, and in attending the "County Chairman" your money will be judiciously expented in two ways, first, by furnishing you an even ing's entortainmont, and second, in aiding in the establishment of a Xational Park at Pilot Knub.
