When the Dusenberry case was
called Monday afternoon, Judge
Robinson filed a motion for the
defense, asking a continuance on
the grounds that material witnesses
were absent. The motion was
argued until late Monday night,
when it was overruled by the Court.
The defendant was then brought
into Court and made affidavit that
he had reason to believe that
Sheriff Adams was prejudiced
against him and should not be al
lowed to summon the panel or have
anything to do with his case. The
Judge then discharged the sixty
men that Adams had subpoenaed
and Coroner Cave, as is customary
in such cases, at once proceeded to
secure a new panel ot sixty men
and appointed Tom Atchison as
Deputy Coroner to assist him. .
Following are the names of the
sixty men whom Sheriff Adams
had summoned and who were dis
charged :
S. W. Downing.

Coioner Cave and Deputy Atchi
son at once proceeded to impanel
another jury without reference to
those who constituted the former
jury, and by a comparison of the
two lists it will be eeen that some
of those on the first panel were
again summoned.
Tuesday morning the prisoner
was brought into Court and John
Mclntire was sworn in as official
stenographer for the case. The
attorneys in the case are as follows:
Attorneys for-State are Nat C.
Dryden, Sol. Hughlett, Jno. M.
Barker and F. R. Jesse. Attor
neys for defense are Elijah Robin
son, Judge Barnett, Judge Wray,
W. W. Fry and Wm. Edmonston.
The defendant looks rather pale
after his year's confinement in jail,
but is apparently very confident of
the result, as is his wife, who oc
cupies a seat near her husband,
holding their little five-year-old
daughter. It is evident that the
defense is going to fight every inch
of ground, as a motion was made
at the opening of the Court Tuesday
morning to quash the new panel
of sixty, summoned, by Coroner
Cave, claiming that it was, to a
great extent, made Op from the
panel Adams had in the first place.
The motion was promptly over
ruled. The first six men of the
panel were then called and sworn.

Anotber View of Christmas.
To the Editor of the Ledger.
Mexico, Mo., Nov. 12.-Who .
would be a pessimist or take a pes- j tollj Cai thig evening at 7 o'clock,
simist's views of Christmas? WhatThe average prjce p&id for them
if Christ was not born on the twen-
'yfifth of Dember? What if that
jday was once the annual festal !
time of the sun-worshipers? What
if religionists, pagan and Christian,
kept it in the past with supersti
tious rites? What if Santa Claus
was an invention to substitute in
the nursery and childish imagina
tion a saint ior an idol and thereby
divert from the recognition and
worship of other deities than the
true God? What if customs, seem
ing ridiculous because not under
Bod, have passed from ancient to
more moa rn oDservance ot unnsi-
mas? And what if churches, in
their endeavor to get rid of these,
have devised the most attractive of
ceremonies and the grandest of lit
urgies? The fact remains that there has
ever been associated with that day
enough ot religious and social en
joyment to cause, notwithstanding
opposition of some of the sects,
. . r-t . h r- Anna Mtmn rm n
eration as an universal festival,
acceptable alike to old and young,
high and low, rich and poor.
The exact date of the birth of
Christ is not known. Some of the
early Christians kept their feast of
the nativity in May, others in
April and still others in January.
History, however, records that in'med,n'm
the third centuory, in the reisn of
Diocletian, a number of Christians Texans, corn-fed, not quotedjgrass
vehn oomM i rworr.Tu.i- tn fed, not quoted; range steers, at
celebrate the birth of Christ were
burned, together with the build
ing they occupied. And, besides,
there is nothing in history to show
that the festival of the nativity of
CLrist was either arbitrarily or
casually associated with the twenty-fifth
of December by the church.
Doubtless among the most potent
causes tending to that result was
the fact that almost the entire
population of the Roman empire
originally regarded the winter
solstice as the period when their
various deities were most active
in their beneficent plans and
preparation for the development
of their precious gifts of spring,
summer and autumn. And in
considering the propriety of cele
brating Christmas in December it
ought to be borne in mind that it
is in the latter part of this month
that the sun begins to return north
ward and commences to put into
operation influences that culminate
in seed time and harvest; and that,
on that account, if for no other, it
is the season of the year most
susceptible of being used with ef
fect to illustrate the commence
ment of the new and fruit-bearing
life that the advent of Christ in
augurated in His kingdom. As an
institution, ecclesiastic and civil,
Christmas has promoted religious
and social enjoyment in family
circles and among mankind. Like
all other days, it has been subject
ed to abuse ; but, thank Gad, it is
too firmly seated in the human
heart to be easily belittled or up
rooted by fanaticism. G.

Ex-Congressman Buckner.
From the St. Lout Republ ic
- Ex-Congressman A4 H. Buckner,
of Mexico, Mo., arrived in the city
yesterday and is at the Laclede.
Judge Buckner has not visited the
city before in three years. "The
farmers have about realized," said
the Judge, "that they must do
something to protect their interests.
They have been slow, but the re
cent elections in Iowa show they
are effective. This is particularly
true of Iowa. Future elections
will further demonstrate their
awakening in the matter of the tar
iff. Politics in our immediate
neighborhood is quiet. I believe
Congressman Norton anticipates
some opposition in his district, but
from whence it will come, or what
its extent will be, I am not advised."
The J udge looks remarkably well.
Be sure and let La Crosse Lumber
Co. to figure your bill. They will save
you money.
