EDITOR PLANT IN TROUBLE A Boonville Editor and a Hand some Yonng Lady. The Moberly Democrat contains the following relative to B. W. Plant's escapade : Shortly after noon yesterday, but in time tor dinner a gentlemanly ap pearing man accompanied by a neatly dressed good looking lady entered the Arlington and registered as Charles W. Deane and wife from Denison, Texas, and were asiigned to room 32. In the afternoon they took a stroll around the city inspecting the sights but conducting themselves in a cir cumspect manner. At 1:44 p. m. Marshal Lynch received the following dispatch. Boosville, Mo., Jane 4, f91. ClTV Mar-hal, Moberly, Mo. Arrest B. W. Plant dressed in grey clothr Mazcie Kloethe 10 vears old, blick cih and dres and blick straw bat, on M , K iT. tram. W. W. Taliafarj, City Marshal. Our city officers at once went to work on the matter but could fiud no parties answering the above descrip tion, which proved to be entirely wrong as to the clothing worn by tne fusi'ives. The parties calling them selves Cbas. W. Dean and wife were walking the street and were seen sev etal times by Marshall Lynch and deputies but'eith:r had changed their dress or never l;ft Boonville dressed as described in the ds-patcb, hence the police made no arrest. Last night the brother ot Maggie Kloethe alias Mrs. Dean, ot Denison, Texas, arrived, and in company with the police started out on a bunt, and soon found the following entry on the Arungtou teguter: "Lhas. w. Dean and wife, Deni-on, Texas." Going to the room, No. 32, the parties were waked up, and were by the brother at once recognized as his sister and B. W. Plant, of the Boon ville Star. The youug lady was taken in charge by her brother and taken back to her home on the morning tram. Mr. Plant is now in charge of an officer waiting for the arrival of the Cooper county sheriff. The name of the young woman's brother is D. A. Kloethe, and he was accompanied bv a friend named J. W. LI y. Mr. Kloethe recognized the hand wring on the register of te hotel and rushed frantically up to the door of room No. 32 an I demaded admittance. He was refused when he bgan to raise a reguhr old-fashioned rumpus. Drawing his pistol he tried to break the d or and to kL'k it in, making such a n.iS3 lhA he soon had all the b -Briers at the hotel up and in the hills. Mr. B-auett hearing the disturbance went to him and com pelled him .to desist and acting under Mr. lienuett s advice ne got tne city officers and they ma ie the arrests for him. He and bis friend Liloy took the early Ka'.y for Bxmv'lle. An interview just held with Mr. Piant, who is in charge of Officer Os born disclosed the fact that his real name is B. W. Plant, that he is a married man and editor of the Boon ville Star. He says, 'Three days ago, in Boonville I saw the girl Kloethe and she told me she was go ing to leave home that her brother treated her so brutally she could not maud it. I advised her not to do so but she persisted in her determination. The next day I saw her again and as the result of a conversation with her I went up to her house, but failed to get ti see uer. it was so stormy and rjining that I did not stay around the lnuse very long but went back home and went to bed and thought no more about the matter. letter day between eleven and twelve o'clock, she came to my office, and I again saw her. She told me she bad passed the office several times that morning, but if she did I did not see ber. She again said that she was going to leave that she waa go ing to Ohio. I again tried to dis suade ber from so doing, but my ef forts were useless, she is a very pretty lit'le girl. She said she could no longer stand, the treatment at home and would under no circum Btances go back. She had no money. I asked her how she would go without meney. She answered that she would walk if necessary, and then said "you have plenty of railroad passes.'' I walked to the depot with her when she proposed that 1 furnish the passes and co as tar as juooeriy wim ner. l did so. Of course I registered under an assumed name as any one wou'd have done, and you know the rest." Plant is rather a good looking young man of about 32 years of age. He seemed to be a little under the in fluence of liquor when intervied by yoi" reporter and somewhat excited but seemeii to feel his position keenly. J. M. Ryner, deputy sheriff of Cooper county, arrived from Boon ville on the train at 2 p. m. and Mr. Plant was handed over to him at once by the city marshal.

'From a gentleman who came over from the "vine clad city" yesterday it was learned that Plant was met at the depot by a delegation of Boon ville's colored citizens and that he was at once placed in jail.

It is by no means a new theory that a man and woman who have been married a great number of years grow to resemble each other, not only in manner and voice, but actually as to features and expression. A recent number of tbe Illustrite We!t baa an article on thi subject, which states that the photographic association of Geneva has quite lately been investi gating the truth of this theory by the aid of the camera. The photo graphs of seventy-eight elderly or very old married couples were taken, and an equal number of family groups. The results proved quite satisfactory, to holders of this theory, inasmuch as in twenty-four cases the resemblance b--'teea husband and wife was mueh greater than that between brother and sister, and in thirtv esses more it was fully as great The failure of the other twenty-four old couples to real ize the expectations of those interested in the matter is supposably due to 'incompatibility of disposition," which time was apparently unable to combat in its effects. Merit Wins. We desire to say to our citizens that for years we have been selling Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Dr. King's New Life Tills, Bucklen's Arnica Salve and Electric Bitters, and have never handled remedies that sell as well, or that have given such universal satis, faction. We do not hesitate to guarantee them every time, and we stand ready to refund the purchase price, if satisfactory results do not follow their use. These remedies have won their popularity purely on their merits. Mertz & Hale, Druggists. JUST IN. A line of popular new shades in crepe du chein collarettes.
