When the old men of to-day were
boys there was a much-mooted ques

years an authoritative decision was
not reached. Now the SupremeCourt
of the United States.a tribunal from
which there is no appeal, has decid
ed that the tomato is a vegetable and
not a fruit. A New York importer re
ceived an invoice of tomatoes and the
customs officers exacted a duty. The
purchaser refused payment on the
claim that the tomatoes were fruit.
Hence the legal fight and a final so
lution of the old conundrum.
The business men and citizens of
Mexico are nearly all in favor of hav

to the public square as possible. The
citizens of Mexico desire to attend
the speaking and should be where
they can reach, it without having to
pay carriage hire. The visitors, and
there will be thousands of them, do
not care to pay fifty cents to go out
to the picnic and back after reaching
Mexico. Quite a number of those
who come to-tbe picnic will desire to
see Mexico and get acquainted with
ber business men, and in order to do
so the celebration should be in the
heart of the city.

Mr. Fetter, of Kansas City, who
is in Mexico to-day in consultation

reference to the increased rates on

for an advance in insurance rates so

10 per cent of the increase was
made because license to Insurance
Companies in Mexico had been
raised; ten per cent ot .the in
crease was because the city does not
keep two or three men employed at
the engine house of the fire depart

crease was on account of adverse
legislation or rather legislation which
the Insurance companies claim to be
detrimental to their interests. One
thing ia sure, the business men of
Mexico will not be able to carry in
surance if the rate is maintained as
lately announced. The local agents
are hard at work endeavoring to get
a concession from the companies
and we trust they will succeed.

to Mr. Frank B.
Forney, of Mober
ly,in the Christian
church of Mexico
night, June 1,
was one of the
most brilliant and fashionable wed
dings that ever occurred in Mexico.
The church was crowded with the
friends of the high contracting par
ties and a large number of relatives
and friends attended the reception
and banquet at the elegant residence
of the bride's parents on Promenade
street. The church and residence
were both tastily and elegantly dec
orated in white and green. Myrtle
was used profusely in honor of the
bride's first name. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. Wm.Dobyns,
of Marshall, and was one of the most
beautiful and impressive we ever
heard. Profi Sellers' orchestra plat ¬

the bridal party entered the church ;
this orchestra also furnished splen

ing a favorite with all who know her.
The groom is a leading and substan
tial business man of Moberly, stand
ing high in business and social cir
cles, being a son of ex-Mayor For
ney, of that city. After the recep
tion Mr. and Mrs. F. B. Forney left
for Chicago and the east to be absent
for some time, after which they will
reside permanently in Moberly. The
supper served was a bountiful spread
and the presents showed unusual
aste in their selection, many of them
being; very handsome and costly.
There was quite a large delegation
in attendance from Moberly, the
home of the groom. The bride look

bridesmaids were Miss Hattie Ha

Emma Beatty, Mcberly; Miss Nina

Aside from the religious aspect of
the question, we believe in keeping
the seventh day, for physiological
reasons. We've tried it and know
what we are talking about. You,
friend, who are not a"Sunday man,"
suppose you try an experiment. You
who are hard-worked in your office,
store or trade. Just make up your
mind that for four successive Sun
days you will observe the following
rule : When you go home Satur
day night, you will have an under
standing with your wife, and give
orders to your children that until
Monday morning in your house,
the subjects of business, money,
politics, etc., will be entirely
dropped, and that you will spend
the day at home with your family,
except to attend church. If a neigh
bor drops in, tell him your experi
mental resolution and ask him to
confine his talk within the limits.
Let the secular papers alone too,
and keep your mind in a restful,
quiet, unexcited channel, and you
will be surprised to find, when Mon
day morning comes, how much zest
you have, mental or physical, to
take up your work.
We know a certain town, where
there is no railroad service from Sat
urday evening till Monday morning.
One of the active business men of
the place, a former reader of Sun
day newspapers, told us he had
found out what Sunday rest meant,
and that the boon is inestimable.
It is a habit with many men, and
a fixed one, to go "down town" af
ter breakfast every Sunday morning.
The law permits one class of busi
ness houses to open their doors on
Sunday, and here the Sunday down
towners congregate. The law per
mitting drug stores to stand open on
the Sabbath is pernicious. It is not
necessary. If medicine is needed
for the sick the druggist can be
found at home. He is entitled to
his day of rest as well as anybody
else. Competition forces him to
open his doors ; his sales are not
confined to medicines, and the as
semblage on Sunday morning, in
these places, draw many a man
there who would otherwise stay at
We are glad of the present dis
cussion of the Sunday question.
The nation has been drifting from
her moorings iu this regard. We
hope all Christian people will be

others do, one thing is sure, the
blue banner of Presbyterianism will
be found at the head of the forces
fighting for the defense of the lourth

and cooler. Storms will reach the
extreme east by the 3rd, and the
change to cooler fair weather will
have crossed the continent. Warmer
weather will center, in a progressive
way, about the 6th and 7th, reach
ing a high temperature, and result
ing in reactionary storms on and
touching those dates. Westerly
winds, rising barometer, with a cool j
spurt will follow about the 7th to
9th first to the west, later east.
About the 10th strong indications
of the solstice storms will appear.
Easterly to southerly winds will
prevail barometer will begin to
fall, and it will grow 6teadily
warmer, resulting in many active
storms from the 11th to 14th. The
temperature and storms are apt to
reach a crisis about the new moon.
Renewed activity and volcanoes and
earthquake disturbance s may natur
ally be expected, though not neces
sarily dangerous. They are the re
adjustments of natural forces, and
should be looked upon as benefi
cent, rather than calamitous. There
will be great electrical activity dur
ing these solstice storms, especially
during the night, but no one should
be alarmed, as it will prove grander
than disastrous. Our friends will
remember the tendency of the storms
to whirl suddenly back from the
east, from about the 10th to the
25th of June. Showery conditions
are liable during all that period, and

It will be natural to expect some
heavy storms, with rain and much
lightning and thunder, say about
the 23rd,24th,25th. Cooler weather
will succeed these storms, and
regions that are 6hort of moisture at
the end of this period will have to
be content with serious drought. Re
actionary disturbances are central on
the 29th, with the full moon and the
equinox of Mercury on the same day.
These combined causes are sure to
result in a warm wave and some
very active electrical storms, with
heavy local rains, during the two or
three last days of June. The month
will close with very cool weather ad

otherwise attractive, polite, and par
ticular people amict their mends
with the foul odor of their breath
If there was no remedy for this, it
might excite our sympathy, but as
there is no need of having a foul
breath, it is an unpardonable breach
of good manners to obtrude such an
offence on good society.
Foul breath arises from disorder
ed digestion which can be corrected
by using Sulphur Bitters, and the
result will be a pure, sweet breath.

A crowd of 100 men soon gathered,
intent on egging the couple out of
town. A hasty escape to the train
was made, where the would-be bride
and groom separated from each
other until an exit could be made
out of the city. The would-be groom
gave the name of George Knowles,
and claimed to be a Pullman car
porter. The crowd which gathered
would have created a disturbance, as

The Blue Grass State Dedicates
Chicago, 111., June 1. This is
the day of dedications and openings
of the World's Fair. Three State
buildings, the Children's Building
and the great Electricity Buildings
were the centers of attraction. Ripe
old Bourbon fluids ran in the Ken

Children's and Electricity buildings
were dedicated in ways more inter

to a great extent the grand total for
the month of June which is confi

dowed with showers. It was an
"open evening," but the crowd did
not come, even for the first glimpse
of the Electricity Building. There
was no open air music until late in
the afternoon, when Sousa's band
managed to work in a few pieces
between showers. The day was

between nations, and enforce the
peaceful settlements of all quarrels.
