Banner, MA, The Board of Trade should meet at once, and go into business again at the same old stand. As a participant in the Mexico I J? ourth of July parade we desire to extend our sincerest sympathy to . Jake Kilrain in his razzle-dazzle. Every dog bitten by the mad dog should be killed to-day. The . -rest of the dogs in town should be killed to-morrow. Oxe of the best "Don'ts" in all the great collection is thi3 one: "Don't heed over one in a thous and of all the "Don'ts" you meet. If any of our citizens have paid their city tax twice, as reported, the city should not lose a cent, but the Collector who got the benefit of this money should be made to dis gorge. , A St. Louis woman has a mad stone which has been used one hundred times "with success." The peculiar advantage of the mad stone is that whenever it is used, if no hydrophobia follows, it scores a victory, whether or not the dog that bit the subject was mad. Miller, the murderer of old man Apgar, has weakened and is in the throes of despair. Fears that he will attempt suicide, we think, are groundless, as he is too big a cow ard far even such a death. There is more danger of his dying from fright before the day of execution. The Mexico School Board does business lor the public in a busi- ness-uice manner, as the publica tion of the receipts and expendi tures of the board published in the Ledger to-day shows. Mexico has the best public schools in the State and this statement will bear re peating. "Whek does the Mexico Board of Trade meet?" is the question opening a letter we received to-day from business men who want to locate in Mexico. The Board of Trade has done much for Mexico in the past and we trust it will not allow the warm weather to drive it out of business. The Board of Trade is composed of Mexico's most substantial and enterprising citizens, who owe it to the public to meet at once and take hold as they did when first organized. The . Board of Trade can; do more for Mexico in the next two months than can likely again be accom plished in a year. Anonymous letter writers are the scorpions of creation. There are a few in Mexico who endeavor with their vile poison to create trouble inthe church, and in the family. Some very serious results from such work can be pointed to right here at home. From what we learn to day, at least one of these poisonous vipers is liable to be trapped, and the point that troubles us is bow to invent a punishment commensurate with the offense. The future abode ' of the midnight assassin will be an ice house compared with the place to which anonymous letter writers of the class we reler to will be con signed. One by one the sturdy, staunch old pioneers of Missouri go to their last reward. The death of no one in Mexico within our memory caused the widespread and sincere feeling that prevades the entire Njmmniy at the demise of J as. Callaway, Known to every person in this part of the State, and re epected aud loved by all who knew him. At all public meetings of business men, for the advance ment of Mexico and Audrain coun ty, Mr. Callaway will be missed, He was enthusiastic in all matters which tended toward the bettering j- of Mexico er its institutions. There will be a vacant chair at all meet ! ings of Democrats, among whom there was none more true to party principle or more fearless in the fight for party nominees. No man was more patriotic in word or deed. .: In the church his liberal spirit and exemplary walk will long be pointed to by those who come after i;, him as worthy to be followed 'by : those who "walk before God." At r- the fireside he was genial, kind- loving, and with a disposition which made him beloved by all ,Vrwifll wkon be associated, whether xre kin or hot.

There is going to be a good deal of trouble about city taxes on su burban property growing out of the following portion of article 1, sec tion 3, of the charter of the City of Mexico: "Provided, however, that all lands embraced within the limits of the quarter of a mile most remote from the Court House, used as farming land and reduced to ac tual cultivation or farming or graz ing purposes, shall be exempt from taxation by the Council until they are divided into lots, streets and alleys." We judge.after a close reading of the above, that there is a good deal of valuable property within the limits of our city which will be exempt from taxation until Mex ico gets what she needs- -a third class charter. JAMES CALLAWAY DEAD. One of the Most Highly Respected Citizens of Mexico Passes Away. James Callaway, one of the old est and most highly respected cit izens of Mexico, passed peacefully away at the home of his son-in-law, Major H. A. Ricketts, at half past three Thursday. Deceased was a stockholder and director of the Southern Bank of Mexico, a leader in the Southern Methodist Church and a director of Hardin College. He was a resi dent of Mexico from 1865, when he moved here from Fayette, Mis souri. He was born in St. Charles county in 1S16 and lived in that part of the State many years. Two children survive him. They are Redman Callaway, of Kansas City, and Mrs. Ricketts, wife of Maj. H. A. Ricketts, of Mexico. Both were with their father at the time of his death. Mr. Callaway suffered poor health since the death of his beloved wife,over a year ago. He constantly failed, when a recent attack of an other trouble hastened his death. Mr. Callaway's demise will be mourned by every citizen of Mex ico. General sympathy is extend ed the bereaved relatives. THE LAST SAD RITES. "There is no death ! What seems so is transition ; This life of mortal breath Is but a suburb of the life elysian, Whose portal we call death." Rev. Dr. E. K. Miller delivered a very impressive funeral oration over the body of James Callaway at the Promenade Street M. E. Church, South, Saturday morning. Scores of friends and relatives of the man whose death is so deeply mourned attended the service, and at its close pressed forward to take a last look at the calm face of their dead friend. The remains were encased in a dark, rich casket which was half smothered with flowers. The restful features of the dead denoted that his de mise had been as peaceful as is al ways that of one whose life is a life of purity. Besides the splen did address by the pastor of the church, Rev. Dr. John D. Vincil, the noted St. Louis divine who formerly lived in Mexico, deliver ed a beautiful and impressive pane gyric. The service was a long one and the hour was nearly noon when the long cortege moved to ward the cemetery in which the re mains of James Callaway found their last resting place. The altar at the church was heavily draped and a large number of beautiful floral openings rested by the casket. Among the notable pieces were the following: A broken wheel of beautiful white roses, from Mrs. Lamme, of Mon tana: lrom the grandchildren, a handsome pillow of white flowers with "Grandpa" worked across the center; gates ajar, from the children;a cross of white roses and a beautiful lavenderplaque from Mrs A. K. Yancey; a beautiful heart of pansies and lilies from Mrs. T. P. Rothweh; several baskets of hand. some flowers from Mrs. J. A. Spence, Mrs. Wm. Harper, Mrs. J. M. Marmaduke and Miss Mary Nelson; a handsome pillow from Mrs. S. P. Emmons; an anchor of oleanders and geraniums from Mrs T. P. Rothwell; a beautiful pillow of roses and geraniums from Mrs J. J. Steele; a handsome sickle and sheaf from Mrs. G. M. Carroll. At the cemetery Mrs. Carroll arranged a beautiful sheet of evergreens, while from the newly made grave to the one occupied by the remains of Mrs. Callaway, who died two years ago, a bridge was erected On its side, in white flowers, the device, "United," was worked in flowers. Prof. Abbe has investigated the oft repeated declaration that the climate of this country is changing, and he declares that such talk is all nonsense. Year by , year the weather averages up just as it has ever since records were kept. ' Children; Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. WlEalrwassicwegaTeberCastoria.

Speaking of a queer freak of elec tricity in Daketa recently, the Monthly Weather Review, a per fectly reliable journal issued from the Government Signal office,says : "At 2 p. m. prairie fires started in the county, 6ome from no known cause. It is asserted by trust worthy farmers that the barbs of fence wire emitted showers of sparks at frequent intervals, and several report that fires started at the foot of posts supporting the wires. Many report that the flames rose fifty feet in the air. All combustible matter appeared to be highly susceptible of igni tion; in many cases buildings pro tected by from fifty to one hundred rods of ploughed ground were con sumed. No preemptible interval of time elapsed from the moment the structures were on fire until their complete envelopemnt. , Huron was several times threatened, and only strict vigilance and hard work kept the fires from entering the corporation, lines." ; . -.;.-.. : In 'Squire Hams' court to-day, "Bose".

Boy: (making a discovery) What is this, pop ? Father: That, my son, is the top of a hole bored by a local com pany late in the last century. "Is there anything at the bot tom of the hole?" "Yes, my son." "What is it, pop?" "I think there are several tools down there." "What kind; are they like the carpenter tools I wanted you to buy for me?" "No, my boy; they are very heavy. One of them, I think, weighs several thousand pounds." "Is there anything else in the hole?" "There is a good deal of water down there." "Anything else?" "I think there is a long piece of rope somewhere near the bottom." "Why didn't they take all that stuff out?" "They tried very hard, but tbey couldn't do it." "Why couldn't they?" "I don't know." "How long did it take to make that little hole, pop?" "They worked at it about twenty years, I think." "And is that little hole all they could make?" "Yes." "How long is it?" "About a quarter of a mile." "Why don't they make fence posts out of it?" "That, my son, is a chestnut; that idea has been expressed be fore." Senator Vest. In a private letter to a friend, Senator Vest writes as follows : "I am not losing any sleep about the election of my successor. That matter will be settled by the Demo crats of Missouri and not by the few disappointed office seekers now yelping at my heels. "I have gone across the plains and heard many a dark night the barking of a dozen hungry coyotes when there was fresh meat in camp they couldn't reach. "One thing I want to say most distinctly and emphatically. Un der no state of case shall my can didacy interfere with the success of the Democratic party. The Re publicans may as well understand now that in no contingency will my ambition endanger Democratic success or contribute to Republican victory. "All this talk by Radicals and a few sorehead Democrats about dis sension and rival factions and per sonal aspiration amongst Democrats in Missouri is political rot. For one, I shall fight where the party places me, without a murmur and to the full extent of my ability. The first thing istto put beyond question the election of a Demo cratic Legislature that will send a true Democrat to the Senate. Who will be Senator is of secondary ini portance." The Orange. From Colman's Rural World. "By their fruits ye shall know them." The Grange tree this year is bearing such a good crop of fruit, in its fight with oleo in some States, its battles with "trusts" and com bines in others, that it is no won der intelligent farmers are taking hold of it in all parts of the country. The reports sent to the Secretary of the National Grange of the organi zation of new Granges, the long list of Granges reorganized, the encour aging letters of State Masters and their active deputies, of the bright outlook, "the field is white for the harvest," "farmers never so ready to organize," "meetings never so well attended," all point out the prosperity existing in Grange work in this summer campaign of 1889 Work Has Been Resumed. From the Jonesburg Journal. Work in the big hole-in-the ground at Mexico has been tempo rarily suspended. It appears that Sam Cook wanted to pull the hole up and run it in his paper as an original article, but Bob White kicked so vigorously against such fl agrant piracy that a general row ensued, and on the whole it was concluded best to stop the whole j proceeding at the hole until the boys got cooled off a little. Bob swears he'll retaliate by running in a double leaded bung-hole gotten up on the holier-than-thou princi ple. - " Gustave Graumuller, the young man who was almost fatally injur ed by a train several weeks ago, is, for the first time since his injury, fully conscious.

She wears a saucy hat Aud her feet go pit-a-pat As she walks ; And the sweetest music slips From her merry, madding lips When she talks. She facinates the street With her gaiters trim and neat, Made of kid; For they twinkle as they pass Like the rillets in the grass Halfway hid. Her skin is soft and white Like magnolia bads at night On the bough; But for fear she'd be too fair There's a freckle here and there On her brow. Dimples play at hide-and-seek On her apple-blossom cheek And her chin, Slyly beckoning to you, "Don't you think its time too wo? Pray begin." Then her winsome, witching eyes Flash like bits of summer skies O'er her fan, As if to say, "We've met; You may go now and forget If you can." No Poetry Wanted. From the Arizona Kicker. There's too much poetry in this Western country ten times too much. Every week fifty or more men and women in this locality, who ought to be engaged hoeing po tatoes or making rag carpet, worry the life out of the best part of seven days to "dash off" a poem for the Kicker. Not one out of 500 is true poetry, and not mere than one out of a bushel is worth publishing. There should be a law applying to the country west of Omaha a law to make it a penal offense to send a poem to a newspaper unso licited. We are satisfied that this rhyme-jingling has retarded the growth of the West twenty years, and itwill continue to work against us until there is a law to stop it. The Boss Fish Story. Louisiana, Mo., July 10. A catfish weighing 80 pounds caused considerable excitement on the river bank to-day. While a color ed women was washing clothes on the bank she concluded to try her luck with the hook and line, and, tying a trawl to her leg, she threw the hook well out into the water fnd continued her work at the tub. It was not long before two men's united strength was necessary to save the woman from a watery grave, for the fish was rapidly pull ing her into the river.

Lincoln's BeJigion. 1 The forthcoming (August) num ber of the Century will contain a chapter on "Lincoln and the Churches" in the Lincoln History, by Messrs. Hay and Nicolay, from which the following is an extract from advance sheets: "There have been swift witnesses who, judging from expressions uttered in his callow youth, have called him an atheist, and others who, with the most laudable intentions, have remembered improbable conversa tions which they bring forward to prove at once his orthodoxy and their own intimacy with him. But leaving aside these apocryphal evi dences, we have only to look at his authentic public and private utter ances to see how deep and strong in all the latter part of his life was the current of his religious thought and emotion. From that niorning when, standing amid the falling snowflakes on the railway car at Springfield, he asked the prayers of his neighbors in those touching phrases whose echo rose that night in invocations from thousands of family altars, to that memorable hour when on the steps of the Capi tol he humbled himself before his Creator in the sublime words of the second inaugural,there is not an ex pression known to have come from his lips or his pen but proves that he held himself answerable in every act of his career to a more august tribunal than any on earth." To be Outdone in Nothing. From the Pike County Post. There is more "personal journal ism" to the square foot in Edina, Knox county, than any place else in Missouri. The result is, a dead town and the people have lost con fidence in each other. Monroe City News. Bro. Reid surely doesn't read the Mexico papers. For bitter person alities,the Mexico Intelligencer and Mexico Ledger elevate the cake. There is scarcely a day in the year but that one of these papers indulge in "personal jonrnalism." No,sir; Mexico would scorn to be outdone in this particular by Edina. A reading of Pollard's new jew elry advertisement is recommend ed. By close attention to business and careful catering to the wants of his customers, Mr. Pollard has es tablished for himself a most en viable reputation as a business man.

The lost string of fishing tools, together with 300 feet of old rope, was taken from the-bole-in-the-ground last week. There is now at the bottom of the hole a long piece of rope, besides the 3,000 pound tool first dropped. Mr. Schofield is by no means discouraged and thinks he will be able to resume drilling in a few weeks. After work has once been commenced, he thinks ten or fifteen feet can be bored daily. Theodore Thomas' orchestra was playing a symphony or something in which the music at one part was softened almost to a bird's whisper, when, like the crack of a rifle cannon, came one startling blast from the oboe. The enraged conductor turned savagely upon the prayer. "What in the devil do you mean?' Just then a plump blue bottle fly took wings from the oboeist's score. "Gott in Himmel !

We have no bond or debts to harrass us, our taxes are low, and every dollar taken from the people is used, not to stop abig debt and interest, but to add to the ma terial wealth of the county.

When the northbound train pull ed into Nashville at 10:30 o'clock Thursday morning a crowd of peo ple surged around one of the cars to see John L. Sullivan, who was known to be on board. Some dis cussion and finally a struggle was seen in the car, and an officer reached over with handcuffs in his hand, seized the slugger's arm and pulled him out into the aisle. Sul livan resisted. Muldoon, who occupied the same seat, put his head out of the win dow and cried to the crowd: "Gen tlemen, 1 demand American pro tection." His patriotic wail was greeted with a variety of responses. Some cheered Sullivan and begged him to "knock the coppers out." Others cried: "Hurrah for the Nashville police," and "Hit him with your club. One youngster who was hanging on the outside of the car window ducked his head behind the eill and informed the crowd that "the cops have out their guns."

CaxtokIChisa. June 9. Believ ing you to be possessed of an un- - dying interest in all true born , sons of Audrain county, even though they have strayed into for- . eicrn lands. I venture to rive von - C3 1 " O- V a brief outline ef my wayfaring ex-. perience since my departure from home. After leaving Mexico last July I went dewn into Southwest Missouri, and from there shifted over into Kansas; Finding Kansas rather dry just then, I again gath ered up my effects and slid over . into Colorado. However.Colorado did not appear quite as good as it used to be, so 1 tried New Mexico, hanging out for a time in the town of Albuquerque. But eventually I wearied of the land of cactus and Navajoes, and I emigrated to Ari zona, home of the festive Apache; but my migratory instincts soon prevailed again and I rambled down into Southern California. ; locating in the vicinity of L Angeles. Two months later the distrust at findine a Republican President elected made me resolve ' upon a change of scene, so I took a trip up the coast to San Francisco. Then I thought a sea voyage might do me some good,so I embarked on a sailing ship bound to the Philip pine Islands. For two months we weie rocked in the cradle of the broad Pacific, seeing no land from the day our white sails carried us beyond the coast hills of California -until we were among the Ladrona Islands. We passed near two of these Agngan and Pagan; the latter Island having three active velcanos which afforded a magnifi cent view. Two weeks later the Babuyon and Bashee Islands in the Bali n tang channel greeted our vis- : ion and in a few days more the mountains coast of Luzan, largest of the Philippines, were in sight. Then head winds struck us and for several days we were beating about the marrows at the entrance to Manilla Bay. Finally , one nigh t,the wind relented and we anchored in Manilla harbor. We weighed anchor again next day and sailed away to the Southward, and a week's steer ing among the Tropical Islands ot Mindora Straits landed us at Iloilo. I parted with the jolly craft at Ileilo.and taking a French steamer, crossed the China Sea to Hong Kong. One more little journey up -the Chu Kiang River brought me to Canton, where I still luxuriate. For the past few days I have been viewing the attractions of the drag on festival, which consists chiefly in a din of Chinese music, gaily decorated junks and war ships nd gaudy dragon beat, ""i- " t" ii boat is a very Vu v.. concern, with the o v 6.up.:d and pointed to resembl a dragon's head, and it is ornamented by bright colored silken banners and large Buddhist umbrellas. It is saddled by about two hundred coolies and thirty or more dancers carrying fans and pennants and dressed in red, white and green costumes, pump up and down to the slow sonorous beat of large tom-toms and gongs. These boats move about the river among the thousands of junks and sampans all day and are looked upon with great veneration by the natives. - . W. K. Robbtks.
