The republicans seem determined to give Cleveland a walk-over. The Bazoo is in receipt of a neat little publication published at Spring field, Mo., entitled lhe"Eural West." There is not much "rural" west in Missouri at present, but the Bazoo -wishes the publication good luck just the same. It is said that Millionaire Brice has secured fiftv members of the Ohio legislature and that his nomination and election to the United Stales sen ate is assured. Mr. Brice's eligibility rests upon the fact that he is worth $5,000,000. He will be a fine orna .ment to the Millionaire Senatorial Club, but what sort of apology will the democratic parly make for him. The dead here of the lost cause tbe man who made countless thou sands mourn; is receiving far better treatment from the republican press than was accorded the hero of Appo mattox by the democratic press. Helena Journal. The Journal is Prince Kussell Har bison's paper, but even it is liable to be mistaken. It will be remembered that every democratic paper in the land, worthy of the name, paid glow ing tributes to TJlysse S. Grant, the greatest soldier of modern times, and they were paid without any thought of party. Grant "was a man who commanded admiration from all, and when he died, he was universally mourned. Of all the promotions that have been made in the service of the Mis souri, Kansas audTexas railway, siuce it was placed under its Jpresent man agement, there has been none that was more deserving or that produced more satisfaction than the promotion of Mr. Charles J. Pickering to tbe responsible position of chief clerk id the freight department of that road, which was made yesterday. Mr. Pickering came here about a year ago from St. Louis, where he was in the employ of the Missouri Pacific rail way. Since coming here, he has proven himself not only a deserving young man but a thorough gentleman Hosts of friends will rejoice at his promotion. There is much talk of blows at trusts in .New Yor, Illinois and other States, j SENSIBLE. Christmas Presents.

Above prices are 20 per cent below the balance. Frank B. Meyer & Bro., Grand Central, 304 and 306 Ohio St. but no cne seems to be aiming a blow at the parent tiust of all, Standard Oil. Justice Magruder says in the Illinois decision : "Of what avail is it that any number of gas companies may be formed, if a giant trust com pany can be clothed with the power of buying up and holding the stock and property of such companies V Of what avail is it that crude petroleum is scattered all over the Uuion, if a giant trust company may, by collusion with transportation companies or otherwise, prevent the product from finding a market except through its own refineries ? Judge Magruder de clares that to create a corporavion for such purposes is not only opposed to public policy, but is in contravention of the spirit if not the letter of the Constitution. The Bazoo trusts that no sectional feeling will prevent Sedalians from attending ihe exercises at the opera h afternoon in memoriam of the south's recognized leader, Jeffer son Davis. The war is long since over but both the north and the south have been called upon many times to mourn over the less of some one who was prominently identified with that war and it is to their credit to say that in most cases their tears have been mingled. It is natural that the south should mourn Jefferson Davis, just as it was natural for the north to mourn Grant and the broad and lib eral miaded man would be a churl to wish it otherwise. Besides this, the south does not mourn him merely as a leader of the "lo3t cause," but be cause he was a brave soldier, an upright ..and worthy citizen, a kind and faithful husband, a good father, a loyal and true friend and a man who won a place in the hearts of all southern people by his genuine gifts of head and heart. On these grounds there can be no lack of sympathy and no lack of fraternal feeling let every body attend the memorial. There is in some sense a halo sur rounding tbe lives of men and women who, for any reason, or as the result of any combination of circumstances, have held a prominent place among the world's personal luminaries. This halo may be made up of rays flashing from a God-given genius; it may be a spiritual radiance, or it may be the power possessed by the indi vidual to awaken the interest, affection or curiosity of his fellow-men. Seen through the medium of this halo all details of life and character are of interest, but only too frequently is it the case that these details are distorted and misrepresented until in disgust one is apt to turn from published statements relating to prominent people with the feeling that they can not be trusted nor relied upon. A man eminent in many w?ys one who drew to himself a large shaie of the observation of his age, and who dur" iog his latter years lived in . close re tirement, has just passed into a re tirement more impenetrable stP aud he has gone followed by the respectful regard and devotion of Lis nearer friends, and by a large measure of curiosity from the public in general.

Meyer & Bro., Grand Central, 304 and 306 Ohio St. He left the world unpardoned by the Government under which he lived disenfranchised by the power to which for a time his section was at variance -but in the keeping of a Higher Power still is the real gift of pardon, if need for such exists. The pres3 in various parts of the country has given publicity to such utterly erroneous statements connected with one period of Mr. Davis' life that it may be in teresting to hear regarding it from an entirely reliable source. His first marriage, with Miss Knox Taylor, daughter of the hero of Buenavista, has been held by some to be the cen tre point of his life's romance ; she was an accomplished girl, and throbbing in her veins was the noble blood of a long line of proud ances try. It is quite true that her father was opposed to tbe marriage, but the statements broadly circulated regard ing an elopement and clandestine marriage are said to be utterly false. A Memphis woman, grand-daughter of Hancock Taylor, and whose mother attended the masriago of Mr. Davis, states that Zachary Taylor, then commanding one of the Northwestern posts, wrote his broiher. Hancock, that if it was still the wish of his daughter Knox who was at the lime visiting her family in Kentucky to marry Mr. Dayis he withdrew his ob jections, and wished for his broiher to act for him in the matter. Hancock Taylor went to Louisville with Mr. Davi3 and secured the license, and the caremony was per formed at one of the family homes near Louisviile. Miss Milard Taylor, who afterward married a son of Su preme Judge John McLean of Cincin nati, and who still lives in Ohio, was the only bridesmaid, her brother Lewis was her attendant; they were first cousins of the bride and children of Hancock Taylor. It is said to have been a sad wedding, from the fact that the immediate family of the bride were absent, and she herself remarked that she did not expect to live to return to Kentucky, though no reason was given for the presenti ment. It was during the summer, but the bridal party went immediately to Mr. Davis' plantation, near Vicks burg, where in less than a year the wife died, leaving no children. It is said Mr. Davis' affection for her was of the tenderest and most chivalrous nature ; that for years he would not permit the smallest detail of her de partment to be alteicd, and it was said during the war by some one that knew him well that he had Lwo weak nessesbis first wife's family and West Pointers. Without derogating in the least from his feeling for the faithful comppion of his later years this may have been quite true, for man's nature, though the same is not equally true of wompn in some instances is dual concerning the matter of his supremest affection, and he seems to have the capacity of loving h;s second wife as well as his first.

Grand Central, 304 and 306 Ohio St, PROTECTION OF WEEDS. taexcnsable Carelessness of Which Man? Farmers Are Guilty. More protection 13 given to the weed crop (aid also the insects) than may be supposed owing to improper seasons of prepariner the land for crops. After the wheat crop is cut the point next to be considered is how to treat the land after the crop is off. The amount of labor to be bestowed on the field next year, and the value of the crop to be taken off. is largely influenced by this year's treatment of the field. If the farmer could pre vent weeds from springing up his item of labor would be greatly reduced, and it is a matter that not only de serves consideration but must be con sidered in time to put some method in practice by which weeds can be par tially prevented and less labor entailei. The regulation of the weed crop should be under the control of the farmer, but to do this some system is required, and the weeds must not be overlooked in order to give the regu lar crops all the labor. It is not customary to plow in the summer, just at the busiest time of harvesting, but when the farmer is busy then is the weeds' opportunity. They take possession and grow. They will not grow as well when the seed i3 uncovered as when covered, and the opportunity of the farmer should be to induce them to grow. Instead of leaving the stubble land Idle for the weeds to grow on, with the un covered seeds remaining to be plowed under for a spring crop, the stubble land should be plowed as soon as the wheat crop is off. It should not be turned under deeper than one or two inches, if possi ble, and if the soil is light the culti vator may serve to break it up. The seeds of the weeds will then germinate (as also the seeds of any grain that may be on the ground), and when the plants are well up the land should be plowed a little deeper, thus turning under the weeds as green manure and giving any remaining seeds an oppor tunity to sprout and come up. The land should then be left until late in the fall unless the weeds are nearly matured, as they should never be al lowed to seed. Late fall plowing turns up the in sects that have buried themselves and exposes them to the cold. Should any more weed seeds remain, from be ing deep in the soil, they will also be brought to the surface, sprout in the spring and be caught by the spring plowing. Farmers may complain that this method entails three or four plowings and costs too much. Con sideration will convince them that there will, however, be less work to do fighting weeds the next season and that the succeeding year will find fewer plowings necessary and the number of weeds greatly reduced. With the method practiced of leaving the stubbie land unplowed until fall or spring, thsflivceds and insects are pro tected, more labor is required and the following crops are robbed of moist ure and plant food.
