what the republicans call a

to flop, I kno w wo have had better

four years ago.
Joo Flory has been endorsed here
in Mobcrly, his Old homo, by tho
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engi
neers, tho Brotherhood of Loco
motlvo firemen and tho Order of
Railway Conductors, and, in fact,
by all tho people who know him
except a few who wish to sco tho
ring remain In control of stato
affairs. Mobqrly gave Flory tho
grandest reception that over n can

much moro cordial than tho one
given Bryan in '90.

A story was told nt tho Grind

"Nothing left," said Grimes curtly.
"Como around to-morrow." The
hungry democrat walked away. A

and close-cropped mustache, ap

to chnnces of getting something to

a moment and said: "Why hello,

"Ain't had abito sinco morning

A Letter Prom fir. Coffmnn
Mr. and Mrs. John Coffman, who
have been visiting relatives in Ohio
and Vermont returned lo their
homo in thiB city lost Thursday
after having boon away nbout.tivo
weeks. Mr. Coffman being asked
how things wero In the eAst replied
by handing tho Tribune a short
letter which wo print below.
Mr. Editor: As I havo been
questioned by sovcral about my
trip east I will givo you a short
sketch; I left hero Sopt. 13. ad
preceded through St.iLouls, De
troit, Montreal (Canada) a distance
of about 1C00 miles.
There is somo flno scenery along
this route. The crops seem to havo
been very good this year with tho
exception of wheat which was
almost a failure In Indiana and
Ohio. Work seems to bo plentiful
manufacturers aro doing extensive
business.
Politics Is very quiet overywhero
in tho cast. Although there seems
to be a sentiment among Demo
crats as well as Republicans that
McKlnloy ought to bo re-elected
for another term. Still they say
(In on off hand way) "Wo will
have to voto tho ticket".
iItVould be well If somo of tho
old moss backs of Missouri would
visit tho cast and sco how they do
things back there.
