B. TL WHITS, Editor and Proprietor. THURSDAY, DEC. 26, 1889. Mexico is going to have a paper mill sure. Theke is no scarlet fever in Mexico, all reports to the con trary notwithstanding. The Ledger wishes ita many friends and patrons and the rest of mankind a merry Christmas. A li, of the business men of Mex ico, especially those who adver tised, enjoyed a line ChrNtmas trade. Henry W. Grady, ot Georgia, is dead. He was a leading jour nalist of the South and beloved by all who knew him. People who donated to the Christmas distribution to the poor will enjoy Christmas to the fullest extent of the word. All the churches in Mexico, ex cept, perhaps, one, have taken an active interest in the Christmas distribution for the poor. We see ne reason for the Ledger having any "petty jealousy." Tha Ledgeb did not know there was any other newspaper in town. Every time any of our people patronise a travelling "fakir" they deserve to be robbed. There is no reason to buy anything outside of Mexico. The City Council has ordered a special election for Monday, Jan uary 6th,when a City Attorney will be elected to succeed F. C. Bryan, resigned. Circuit Clerk B. C. Johnson always remembers the printers on Christmas, and, as a matter of fact, never forgets them at any time daring the year. We have Fourth of July weather on Christmas day in Missouri. We trust no one will find any more fault with the weather iurnished by the Ledger. The ''kids" who have been stretching wires across bridges to trip people up had better look out. They are known and are liable to prosecution. . The "distributing committee" for the Odd Fellows are looking after the poor children and the work of this committee harmonizes all right with that of the charity committee, which ia looking after all the poor. Whenever a newspaper endeav ors to protect the reputation of any physician at the expense of the public, at the same time jeopardiz ing the life of the children of the community, "its existence becomes a public nuisance." , You don't find the blood-suckers or chattel mortgage fiends of Mex ico taking any part in the move for the Fleet school, paper mill or the Christmas distribution to the poor. Thank the Lord, there are only one or two of this class in Mexico. Thk A, 0. U. W. lodge, of this city, has donated 135 to the Christ mas distribution for the poor of Mexico. The committee from the lodge to act with the charity com mittee is composed of J. J. Win scolt, E. 8. Frost and J. T. Wil liams. Lafs Newkirk, one of Audrain's most prosperous and prominent citizens, is going to California to reside, at least for a year or so. His family goes at once to Wood land and he will follow shortly. He bought some fine jacks which he shipped out a few days since. Lafe says he still holds on to his Audrain property and will come back to remain in a year or two. Whenever a certain editor(?) who does not live a thousand miles Irom Mexico, wakes up in the morning with the dyspepsia, or piles, or scarlet fever, and after eating a heavy breakfast, is out of humor with himself and the rest of mankind, and knowing that he dare not swear at his wife, pitches into the Ledger in order to vent his spleen, he puts us in mind of ; well, nothing. Any attempt to draw the Led ges into the Dr. W. V. Walker-Intelligencer-ecajlet fever contro versy will prove fruitless. Every statement mad in the Ledger in regard to this matter was authoriz ed by Dr. W. V. Walker himself. If he has made mora than one statement in regard to the matter which we do not assert he has no one to blame but himself. If there was no scarlet fever, why all this sensationalismnd gratuitous newspaper gush? If there was scarlet fever, why were the child ren of the public school and the community at large allowed the chance to take such a deadly dis ease? When Prof. McMillan, anxious to protect his school, asked Dr. Walker if there was scarlet fever in town, was he told yes? Not by any means. Were the children of the neighborhood advised to stay away from the house? No, air. Did Dr. Walker advise a private funeral ? No, sir. Did Dr. Wal ker advise other children in the family to stay away from school? Not that any one knows of. Oar contemporary and Dr. Walker can .arrange the matter to suit them selves. Dr. Walker or doctor any body else to the contrary . notwith standing, the I Ledger sticks to what it said and can prove that every word it attributes to Dr. Walker is true, and he will not de yit. THE LATE JEFFERSON DAVIS. Prof. Fleet Resigns. From the Columbia Herald. Frof. Fleet on last Tuesday ten dered his resignation as professor of Greek in the University, to take effect next July, his purpose be ing to open at an early date a school for boys in Mexico. Prof. Fleet has occupied the Greek chair far the past eleven years, and to say he has filled it with ac ceptance is but to repeat what would be the testimony of every board of curators, of every faculty and every student connected with the University during the period and at all familiar with his work. He will leave the University against the protest of the curators, but with the good wishes of every member of the community. While he has been a valuable professor, he has been a most useful and pop ular citizen. Mexico has obtained a great acquisition in him, and that his new educational enterprise will be a success none who know his abilities as an educator and his eminent practical sense will doubt. Arthur Hughlett Elopes With a Wealthy St. Joe Belle. St. Joseph, Mo., Dec. 24. Last Sunday night Mies Lily Reed, a prominent young society lady of this city, went out buggy riding with Arthur Hughlett, of Wells ville, Mo., a son of Congressman Hughlett, of Montgomery county. The young couple disappeared and were not heard of again until this morning, when Miss Reed's parents received a telephone mes sage stating that they were at Leavenworth and were married. As the young lady was engaged to be married to a prominent wholesale dry goods man of this city her runaway marriage was something of a surprise to both her parents and friends.

Westminster College. Prom the Kansas City Times. The Presbyterian Synod of Mis souri has authorized the removal of Westminster College to Kansas City if a sufficient inducement is offered. The Presbyterians are strongly entrenched in . Kansas City. They are one of the strong est denominations numerically ,and probably the strongest financially in the city, and it would be the popular thing to have their Mis souri college located here. It would be a graceful thing lor half a dozen of the wealthy Presbyterians to accept the offer of the Synod. Robt. Edmon8ton is home from Western Kansas on a visit. He owns a fine farm there bat says he wishes he had half as many acres in grand old Missouri. It is only a matter of time until Bob comes back to Aadrain to live. ! . . ,i The W. C. T. U.

' home for the BERTHA. ! Her First Real Christmas and How She Enjoyed It. T was a cold win try day on the 84th of Decem ber, and the flakes of snow were falling thick and fast in the midst ot the busy throng that surrounded the stores filled with Chritsmas gifts. Many of the faces wore a cheerful, happy look; thoughts seemed to wan der to Christmas stockings and their contents, and one after another the tired Banta Clauses hurried home laden with presents. Each seemed intent on his or her own affairs and failed to notice a little girl who was standing, looking so longingly, so in tently, at a beautiful doll in one of the store windows. A shawl of thin ma terial was olosely wrapped around her shivering body, and two thin hands tightly clasped a rag-baby held up to the window, for even she was supposed to take an interest in the Christmas goods. As for the little girl, every thing was so beautiful, so bewildering, that even Jack Frost could not force the little figure away from the -attractive window. Dinah, however, was getting cold, for her black woolly hair was grad ually turning into a white crop, which very much worried her little mother, "We must be going, Dinah, dean" she said, as she tenderly tucked her baby under the shawl. "It's so awful cold. Oh, if it was only summer all the time!" ''A Christmas without snow!" ex claimed a kind, brisk gentleman, as he gave a merry twist to her old shawL "I don't know what you mean by Christmas," she said, as the blue eyes met the brown ones of the stranger. "Don't know Christmas or Santa Claus? Well, I guess you will know to morrow, as sure as I have one arm left," he said, and he looked at the empty sleeve of blue which hung in honor from his shoulder. Then followed a brief history of the "old-time saint" A hasty address was written, and, with a strong arm holding her olose to him self, he said: "To-morrow at half-past one, my dear, be ready, for I will come and take you to my home; Santa Clans always eomes to my home, and you shall surely see him tftit Christmas." A pair of blue eyes beamed with joy as he told her his plans, and if Dinah had possessed any feeling, I am afraid her sickness would have been much worse, owing to frequent aqueezings, causing the black head to bob op and down in excited ecstasies. She could not express her thanks In words, but clung to him and tried to thank him as best she could. That night the story was told to mother, and Fido, the dog, was told again and again, and a happier little girl than the one that crawled Into the narrow hay bed could not be found in the State of Colorado. She dreamed of it, and as soon as the blue eyes were opened to the morning, feared lest the vision should fade away. "No, it's reaSy true," she said, as she hopped about on one leg, with Dinah desperately hanging by her arm. It would have been all right If the stranger bad left out the words: "Be ready at half past one." Alas, for poor little Bertha! She had no dress but one, and would have been jujst as ready then aa when the prancing bay horse swung the sleigh around before the door, and the kind gentleman descended and ten derly lifted her under the warm buffalo t robe. Prompt to the moment and punct- the iook Mr Bninto a i nal as the clock was Mr, Branton, and although he did have six rosy ohlldren and the "mother-bird" (as he called his wife) to provide for at Christmas time, all of whose stockings must be filled "chuck jam to the brim," his heart was plenty large enough to provide for another chick, the last of which re mark he made to his wife, whose eyes at once were full, and whose never idle hand was always ready to help In any direction, "we 11 all make it as pleas ant as we can for her, and show her that she can be one of Santa Claus' "A CHRISTMAS WITHOUT SHOW. girls, too, Come, children," aha con tinued, "come and help me, for I shall need much assistance. Madge, yorf ean finish this soent-bag, while I go down town for a few miscellaneous articles." "liBt me go, too, mamma; I have ten mats I'd like to spend for the little girl," said liable, generously giving her last dime that she had planned to spend for something else. Led by Kable'a example, one and all, (rem fat little Baby Balph, who toddled after his penny bank, to sirten-year-old Madge, who generously rave a quarter. 1 Murerly eontrlbuted to the new fund. I "Oh, thank yon, my dears; that was ; truly noble, and yon will receive your reward from the one who saw: 'it ia more blessed to give than to receive. ' Come, Mable, you ean go with me, for I shall need your assistance now that my snendinff sum la so much larger," she said, with a smile, for she only knew Butler Guthrie is holidays. - how great a sacrifice each one had made with their unequal talents. But time was flying, and "mother-bird" was In a hurry, so no more waa said, and the big frontdoor slammed a Christmas good- oye to we snoppers. "Time's flying and fingers, too, at the Bran ton's," said a friend to her neighbor on the day following. "Every one of em'sapltohing in. and just now 1 saw nine stockings hanging up at the hearth and a new face was smiling just as sweet aa you please. I do believe it is one of Mr. Bran ton's smart pranks. He always does find room for some .stray lamb around Christmas time." "Yest he la setting an example," replied her neighbor, feeling justified In saying it, as she had invited the washer woman's boy over to her home to share the Christmas turkey and partake of the plum pudding, which just at that par ticular moment- was browning in the oven. But I must not linger too long with the neighbors, for I guess my read tya must be in a hurry to take a peep at mr. Jiranton's borne. In a large room decked with ever greens and made delioiously comforta ble by a glowing fire ot red coals that lighted the room in crimson bars of radlanoe, they were all gathered to gether, apparently playing a game; all but little Ralph, who was olosely exam ining the artificial chimney "what San ta Claus was doin' to come froo." The smiles that lighted each face with Christmas happiness never lessened throughout the evening. Here happi ness reigned, and if the goddess of hap piness had bestowed her richest blessinn on the little circle their hearts could not have overflowed any more than they did on that Christmas eve In the home of Mr. Branton. A curtain of ore ton, vailed nine rather humpy looking stockings that hung by an artificial fire-place, back ot which was a door through which the mysteri ous Santa Claus was to convey his Christ mas treasures and join In a romp with the children. Most of the children had implicit faith in the well-known St. Nick. Madge, Mabel and Celia, who were the three oldest, had rather gone back on the old man, and now played his part themselves. In the "mother- HE DISPLAYED THEM AIX. bird's" room, where such long meetings were held (consultations included) that the smaller ones could hardly imagine what could be going on, but at last their minds were set at rest by Willie, who said he thought they were writing let ters to banta Claus. -It was the ouston of each one to write a letter to Santa Claus, from papa down to little Ralph, whose numerous wants were chanted in mamma's ear, who took particular care to note each one, even though the majority of them were rather outrageous, suoh as a "toy monkey what's bigger'n Cnole Tom's horse." Amidst the joy and laughter, when excitement reigned among the ohlldren, Mr. Branton slipped quietly away. In the midst of an exciting game the sound of a bell came from somewhere in the region of the artificial fire-place, and little Balph dropped his toy blocks and looked up at Madge with sueh a happy, excited look that she kissed the flushed cheeks and said: "Yes, you little rascal, Santa Claus is coming." Sure enough, bounce! bang! slam! came a jolly-looking Santa Claus down a queer sort of a chimney, and after a vigorous attempt at blowing his nose, desorioed his long and tedious journey to the excited audience who were listen'' lng with noiseless anxiety when the well-known voice of the smallest mem ber of the assembly broke the silence by saying: "O, Santa Claus, did you get my letter?" "Get your letter! Let me see," he said, as he fumbled arouni in the large, roomy pocket and fished out a rather crumpled piece of paper, with Balph's letter written on it, in the delicate handwriting of the "mother-bird." "Did you get mine, too?" asked one and all of the children, as the excite ment began to deepen. He displayed them all, even Bertha's that had been sent off in such a hurry. Then one by one, Santa Claus handed out the well-filled stockings, and oh, how mysteriously beautiful it did seem to one of the little girls present, who could not resist the temptation to plant a sweet kiss on his forehead and whisper In his ear that she loved him and wished he could come to her house next year. The promise that she received, as well as all the beautiful presents, made her so happy that she would fain run home, and tell mother all about it before it was through. Ahl yes, dear readers, it did them all good, and made them feel happy to think that their sacrifices had made a Merry Christmas for this little girl, and their hearts really felt the words "God loveth a cheerful giver." This kindling of brotherly love In their hearts did not blaze for a short time and then die out, but burned steadily, till the dingy brown house blossomed under the care of more than one little hand, and more than one sad heart brightened from the remem brance of Bertha and the Christmas Eve, when they all learned how muoh a sacrificing act and the helping hand contribute to the happiness of the heart. And the beautiful words of the Saviour echoed through their minds: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto Me." Kate Tinker, in N. Y. Observer. Pbyalca! Train ins. Inquiries extending over a period of forty years, made of about three hundred mem bers ot the Cambridge and Oxford Uni versity crews Instituted by Dr. Haclaren, director of the university gymnasium at Oxford, have elicited facta which may be accepted as experimental evidence ot the value of physical training in a class of cases in which the conditions of life arc mostly favorable, henoe affording a test from which practically every element ex cept the purely muscular one is eliminated. The benefits experienced by the members of these crews are stated to be an increase of stamina, of energy, enterprise and ex ecutive power, and of fortitude in endur ance of trials, privations and disappoint ments -'a goodly list of benefits bearing ot the mental and moral as conspicuously as OB the physical side of the question," says Dt, Kaeiaren, "tor, in tne struggle tor ex istence, failure is more likely to result from Inability to endure trials and disappoint ments than from merely physical weakness the statistics of suicide bearing out thir statement.
