IF YOU WANT TO BUY OR SELL which H. H. Allen was Secretary, to thinking, and also to working. This resulted in a committee of the direct ors of the Building and Loan associa tion being appointed to investigate the accounts ot the Secretary, inasmuch mm m. m, m m m as the association had been in exist ence nine years, and the second pay ment on the tenth year wus called for by the Secretary. The stock holders were very restless over the situation and thought it was about time that the stock was paid up as it should be at par, hence the committee and investigation. The result of the investigation was a discovery that there was a deficit of about $6,500, which, to his credit be it said, Mr. Allen showed by his own bookkeeping and thus making no at tempt at disguising the fact, that such was the case and the dificit was fou nd as he represented it to the committee. He stated to the committee that the Democrat Publishing company was indebted to him several thousand dollars, money absorbed by that company in keeping the Democrat, running and for which result Mr. Allen exhibited a commendable spirit and pride in doing. Various devices have been resorted to by Mr. Allen, since the investiga tion, by appealing to the Democrat Publishing company to raise the money and relieve him of hie very unpleasant embarrassment which was brought about by his being circumvented ad over reached by designing people behind him, who were using him as a tool to keep a rotten, worthless and to all in tent and purpose a bankrupt concern, afloat. This is the brief story in a nut shell. The stock in the Fourth Building and Loan association of Se dalia is held by churches, widows laborers and business men who have been paving in their hard earned doi 3ars from monthly savings expecting that the day was not far distant when they would get it back, together with the legitimate earnings of the same. How frail human hopes ! Instead of the dollars, procured by sweat and economy, and perhaps of the self-denial of luxuries, going into the right channel, they were diverted and paid into the coffers of the Sedalia Democrat Publishing company to keep its head above the sea of innumerable expen ses incident to running a daily paper. The Sedalia Democrat is alluded to above,aa a concern utterly worthless from a financial standpoint. To prove this, the Bazoo will give its condition as far as it has been able to learn. The institution has an incorporated capital of $10,000 half paid up. Last spring it voted an increase of capita! stock to $50,000. The sale of the increased stock did not meet with that success it was at first expected it would ; it has been a drag and only a small amount was placed, and that in the hands of those who were not posted as to the situation and finan cial condition of the concern, hence the increased capital incorporation of the Democrat Publishing company was not perfected and it stands to day incorporated for only $10,000, with Frank Cray croft as President of the company. . The records of Pettis county show that the establishment is mortgaged in the sums as follows,and all bear the date of April 16, 1885, so it will be seen that the whole affair was loaded at the start The mortgages in amount are as follows, and have priority in the order given : Campbell Press company 750 Lod V.

Globe-Democrat : The prospects that the President could be persuaded to visit St. Louis some time this year would be more favorable were it not for the fact that Senator Vest declares positively that he will come. There is no instance on record, so far as we are able to learn, of any of Vest'sjpre dictions coming true. How Employe of Telegraph Offices HaaoMe "Rank' Meuaffeg. Never write "rush" across the faca of a telegram. If you do you will rw tard rather than accelerate its despatch. Employes of telegraph offices pay no more attention to a message with such an inscription on it than post-offioa oku no io letters marsea on tne en velope, "In haste," "Very important; forward as soon as possible," "Deliver immediately," and with other phrases of like import I always smile," said a retired operator, "when 1 think of the way ws boys used to treat 4 rush ' messages in the Western Union office. Some blooming jay would come in and want a despatch shoved through in a hurry. He would write 'Rush' across its faoa, thinking that would help it along. Now, the idea of such a thing. Just as if every thing wasn't rushed in a telegraph office that is, if left to itself. The boys look upon any thing like thai almost as a personal affront What is the consequence? The receiving clerk takes the message, frowns a little whea the 'rush' comes to view, receives tb money, says 'all right,' and the sender walks out complacently. Then th clerk picks up the despatch again, looks it over slowly, toys with it, and smiles. Just here two or three other persons come in and he lays aside the rush' to wait on them. Finally he takes up his little pile el messages, puts the rush' at the bottom and hands the batch over to the record clerk. When the record clerk comes to the 'rush' message he also smiles. As it is the last on his desk he plays with it for awhile, practices penman ship on it (does the Spencerian act, yoti know), takes his time in recording it in fact, does every thing but rash it. From the desk of the record clerk the messages are given to the operators by the tile boy. Me, too, has a great anti pathy for 'rush' messages. If all the operators are not at leisure he supplies those who are from the top of the pile and sticks the rest on a hook. If there is a 'rush' in the lot it always goes oa the hook. The upshot of the whole matter is that this precious piece of paper, with its immensely important communication which the sender wanted 'rushed,' is about the last dispatch sent out." .V. Y.

Putty Foolish. St. Louis Chronicle . A man named A. Putty tried to jump off the big bridge yesterday.
