Southeast Missouri District Fur.
Col. Norman J. Coleman, the editor
and founder of Coleman's Kural World
attended the Farmington Cattle Show
lad week anil delivered an admirable
address Friday afternoon on stock and
farm matters. Col, Coleman thinks
that Ihe enterprising farmers, stock
breeders anil business men of this sec
tion ought to organize a Southeast
Missouri District Fair Association;
that it would be a great thing for the
people and assist in attracting the out
side world lo I his section. Col. Cole
man's lirst visit to Fnrmingion was
Ihiriy-iiine years ago, when he was the
Democratic nominee for Lieutenant
(ioveruoi ; and he helped to organize
the n'd St. Francois Couuty Agiicul
ture and Mechanical Association 115
years ago. Though over eighty years
of age, Col. Coleman is slill active,
hale and hearty, and doesn't look to
be more than 00 or 05 years old. His
fountain of perpetual youth doubtless
has lis source in his universally genial
disposition, contentment and faith io
the fathetbood of God and the brother
bood of man.

THE CONTEMPT CASE
OFSUPT. HARRISON.
He Appears Before Federal Court to
Answer for Refusal to Give Up Capt
Tygard, Inmate of No. 4,
Dr. J. y. Harrison, Superintendent
of Slate Hospital No. 4, went lo St.
Louis Monday to appear before .lodge
Dyer of the Federal Court, citation
having been issued against hliu charg
ing contempt, for refusing to give up
Capt. Flavius J. Tygard, an iumale uf
No. i to the I'liilcd. States Marshal,
dipt, Tygard was president of the
wrecked Kates County National Hank,
and indictments wete found against
him in connection with the bank's
lailure after he had been adjudged in
sane and committed to the hospital.
Dr. Harrison declined lo surrender
him to the Federal authorities without
an oritur from the State courts com
mitting him. For this he was cited
for contempt.
At the closo of the hearing Dr. Har
rison informed the court through his
attorneys that if Judgu Dyer decid-sd
that he was iu contempt he would sur
render Tygard without further ques
lion. He was acting without preju
dice in ihe matter, believing that he
uo authority to suncuiler an inmate
committed to the hospital for insauiiy
except by an order of the Stalo courts
committing him. '1 hcrefore, if his
action was held to be in contempt of
the Federal court he would give up
Lapt. Tygard to the Federal authoi
lies.
Judge Dyer on Wednesday decided
that the Fi'deiul and not the Missouri
Stale qouits ichiiuecl jurisdiction aver
Flavim ,1. Tygard, former president
of the Hales Covuly National Hank,
although he has been committed lo an
Insane asylum by the St Francois
County Probate Court. Prior lo bis
commitment lo the insane asylum al
Farmington eluveu indictments had
been returned against Tygard for his
alleged complicity in the transactions
that wrecked tho bank.
The l ultnd Slates nfticials charge
Hint Tygard is sane and has had him
self committed to the asylum in order
to escape trial upon the Federal in
dictments. He will bo taken to St.
Louis in a few days and later to Kan
sas City, where he will stand trial. If
found guilty on all counts he will ro-
ccivu a 220-year scntenco. Tygard is
alrraily 71 years old.
In delivering his decision Judgo
Dyer said : "W hen a State court and
a court of tho I'ciled Slates may each
tale jurisdiction of a matter, the Iri
buual wbuse jurisdiction lirst attaches
may hold it to the exclusion uf the
other until the duty is fully performed
and Ihe jurisdiction involved is ev
hiiusied, and this rule npplics alike in
both civil and crlminrl cases."
Judge Dyer said he believed Dr
Harrison noted ill good faith and ilis
missed the proceedings of contempt
against him.
"Felix," in his Libortyville cor
respondence, suggests that before
Faimington has another stock show wc
prepare better accommodations for the
people. And that reminds us that the
V. W. C. A. has a rest room on the
second floor of the Farmers' Hank
building which was not used by any of
the women visitors duriug tho slock
show, perhaps becauso they did not
know of it, oud there was no one to
direct them to it. Felix says he stood
around on the dusty slieet until he was
loo tired to rest. Oh, woll, he is a
man and ought to be able to stand
that sort of thing once a year, and
then it wonld be pretty hard to fur
nish all the toousands of visitors to the
stuck show with comfortable seats;
but seriously, belter arrangements in
tho way of ample rest rooms ought to
be provided for Ihe women, and es
pecially for those with babies and
small children. '
