The southern section of the State will doubtless take a rointnetiilable pride in an endeavor to name one of it eminent citizens as Governor and work accordingly. It lias been estimated that $,"i(MI KK) goes out of St. Francois coun ty annually to the brewers and wholesale liquor dealers. We don't know whether this estimate is cor rect, but presumitif that it is ap proximately so, isn't it a pretty larce price to pay for the $JC,(Mk) annual revenue which the saloons pay the county? The $.!X),KKJ ecus out of th" county on account of the saloons without brinuinc buck a single dollar in substantial hi'tii tits. Our merchants send out lots of money, many thousands annually, but it brink's back to the people an equivalent in dry coods, clothnik', U'lucet ics and all the necessities required by the people. The $."iKI,(KM) sent out of the coun ty by the saloons for liquor does not brin tr back a single thing that Ihe people need, but much to de bauch the youth and impoverish families; it is worse than Hquan dered worse than if it were cast into the aea. What is the Ji'.'O.OOO in revenue that the county receives from saloon licenses to the anuuiil drain of $500,000 which it entails upon the county! Vote out the saloons to-mortow and keep the $,j00,00 at home. C'has. Jeiiue, a thirtren-yrar-old boy of Str.

The Charleston papers say there Is no small pox in that town. Twenty-five years ak-o the Kred ericktown Democrat was advising that some action be taken by the County Court to remedy the fearful condition of the county roads. The paper of this week says the same un fortunate conditions prevail down there now. I.andon Strickland, a native of Jefferson county, died on the 27th ult., at his home farm, aged 05 years. I am not a I'mhhibitiotiist, vrt believe the question should he sub mitted to u Vote of the people, and if a majority favor such pnliry it should become a law and be en forced. This is the only democratic way to chain.'" or amend the Con stitution of the State; It is th people's Constitution ami they have a rik'ht tu chaiiu'c it whet, a majority of the h iral voters so dm-idc. When it is submitted there will be time to discuss the merits or demerits of the proposed amendment. "I believe in the locul-option law and its enforcement, and I favor its amendment so as to make it effect ive wherever adopted. 1 nm In favor of a law fully protcctink- a local option district against the iinluwful shipment of liquors into such terri tory and if it is so shipped It should immediately become subject to the laws of the county where deposited. "I am a Democrat and w lllliis' to trust the people and abide by their derision. I have lived in South Missouri forty years, ever slncr I I was a boy, and have been Identi fied with local and State politics all that time." The JuiIkc says he will close up his doCket before taking any further steps in the cainpniK'n ; that as soon as In- became active, he would ap point a special chairman to preside over tin' State Ciiininitter until the primary. He will resign from the chairmanship of the committee at the next llleetiiur. Rheumatic Pains Rolieved.

F.ach voter of St. K.ancois county can name one or mure homes and fami lies ruined by drink. Almost every ' family in this cnuntv, in-urlv ur re motely, has suffered from the use of intoxicants. All these costs, while not reduci ble to exact tiirtircs ill dollars and cents, are tanirihle. If deducted from the fl."i,licl accruinc to the county and State each war from the saloon revenue, would there re main a balance ur a deficit?
