W T Ragland is la boring under the impression that the Democrat did Texas and Texas cattle an injustice when it compared prices re ceived by J M Proctor & Son for their 7 cars ot cattle and the 10 cars of H M Clark cattle. No injustice was intended or done anyone In the tirst place, there are Texas cattle and Tex as cattle. In the second place the Proctor cattie were high grade yearlings which had been fatted by f-mcy aud expert feed ers, aud it was expressly stated "The Clark cattle were stags and steers." The Clark cattle, as everyone knows, were not what they should have been and were not by a long shot what they would have been if Mr. Clark had uot beer, very ill and could not tiuish feediug as he intended to do. Moderate Texas stags are one class of cattle and fancy fed, high grade Herefords are another. Now if it was all charged up to the feeding, then Texas had better ship every hoof to Mis souri.

Ye pencil pusher has been among the business men who are persistent advertisers in the Democrat and to his query, how has your Christmas trade been? Has received these answers: "Tip top," "Well, my trade Saturday (he was grocer) was just $55 better than same day last year." "Our trade was the biireest in the history of the house " "Well I guess the greatest will ex press it.'" And so on down the line. But this was noticable: The bigger the advertiser the better he was satisfied with his trade. Does it pay to advertise? Well, yes and to never let up ou it.

Christmas Printers and Printers Devils, after a'lois said and done, are mortal. That being true and this: "0:i the 15 inst the Democrat gave its subscribers a twenty (20) page paper and on the 22nd a nine (9) page pa per carrying their usual read ing matter and 1452 inches of Home Advertising. We feel like taking a partial rest this glad "Christmas Tide" there fore give you this week only four (4) pages to read.

I1L, visitor Friday. But Often Hard to Get Full Detals From Interested Parties. When you make a difference in cattle, you make a vast dif ference in price. For instance: J. M. Proctor te Son shipped? cars of tancy yearlings to the Chicago market and received $6.25 for them. H. M. Clark's 10 loads shipped at the same time and to the same market fetched, stags $3.40, steers $3 80. They were Texas stuff while the Proctor cattle were Missouri goods. Now deduct freight from Texas here and the difference is greater than the above figures show. By the way, when people leave Missouri for Texas, la dian Territory, Nebraska, etc., they forget to figure on, first freight eating up profits, taxes to improve country to bring it up to Missouri standard and the loss of schools, cburrhes, socie ty and triends. Farmers col umn in Democrat of 22n:l inst. The above from last issue of Democrat has caused all kinds ot criticism of the editor of the farmers column. We were told the Proctor cattle were Here fords, but not that they were from Texas. It matters not where those yearlings were dropped, the prices received for them shows that if they did come trom Texas, when calves, they were made into fancy beef in Missouri and that other Tex as stuff that is not made into fancy beef in Missouri, does not bring fancy prices. J. A. Woolf, of Ely, was iu the city Friday. He and his friend Charles Straub paid the Democrat an appreciated visit. Mr. Woolf came up for hu daughter Edna, who isa student in the High School.
