ANNOUNCEMENT
VK are autliori.od to announce
J. B. ROGERS
an a candidate for re election an
County School Comtnisioner of Mon
roe County at the sohool election to
be held April 4, 1905.
There is only one argument
against the bill providing for
county school supervision in all
the counties of Missouri, as
passed recently by the House
and is now before the Senate at
Jefferson City. That argument
is tbe cost, and that is based on
false ideas ot economy. By the
passage of this bill the efficien
cy of the money expended un
der the present system will be
more than doubled. The bill
becoming a law means that the
cause of education will receive
an impetus which will make the
men and women of Missouri
grander, nobler, better through
out the ages yet to come. Mon
ey which is spent for better ed
ucation is wisely invested and
will yield the greatest returns.
In Missouri we have the great
est University in the West and
several excellent Normals sup
ported by the people, besides
many private and denomina
tional schools which are a cred
it to our grand Missouri. They
are all right and as Missourians
we are proud of them. But,
did you ever stop to think that
only the few attend these
schools The masses receive
their education in the public
schools of the state. This be
ing the case it is of the great
est importance that the public
schools be improved. This
county school supervision will
do. Every city of 2000 inhabit
ants (and many with a smaller
population) employs a superin
tendent for its schools. It is
important that the bill become
a law and every loyal Missouri
an owes it to himself, to his
state, to the school children to
do all be can to secure the pass
age of this bilU
Get your neighbors to write
all the State Senators with
whom they are acquainted urg
ing tbe passage of the county
school supervision bill. Get up
a petition at once and seiut
that in.
The election of United States
Senators by popular vote would
have saved our Republicim
friends much trouble and the
tax payers of Missouri consider
able money.

Moberly, Mo.
Is there no relief in Missouri
from tbe Fire Insurance trust?
Business men of -Moberly, Chil
licothe, Brookheld and other
North Missouri cities are ar
ranging to seek relief from the
almost prohibitive rates of tbe
trust companies by organizing
a strong mutual company. That
there is a trust is very appar
ent as the rates are fixed by a
board and tbe companies all
s tbe same rate. Since the
matter has been under discuss
ion the companies have sent
representatives to Moberly to
throw out a sop in the form of
making some slight reduction
there. The rates in this city
are entirely too high. Some
thing should be done.

St. Petersburg, Jan. 25.
Another butchery of Russian
workingmen occu red esterday
yesterday. The victims' only
crime was an attempt to reach
the Czar with a a petition tor
equality Hundreds perhaps
thousands were slain.
Next the hangman will do
his work. Grand Duke Vladi
mir has decreed the execution
of all members of the provision
al government formed by the
revolutionary party to succeed
the country's present rulers.
Among the most illustrious of
his intended victims is the nov
elist, Maxim Gorky. The lat
er was arrested today at Riga,
where he was summoned from
the capital by the critical ill
ness of his wife.
Nero fiddled while Rime
burned. The news fiorr St
Petersburg says: The terrible
scenes of Sunday made no im
pression on the Czar. Although
he moved bis place of residence,
te whistled unconcernedly, in
act was less preoccupied than
Gen. Grant or Von Moltke be
fore one of their critical engage
ments. The Empress is de
scribed as perfectly indifferent.
President Roosevelt deserves
the moral support of all Ameri
can citizens in his efforts to free
tbe country trcra trust rule.
I
Writ touu State Senator
and urge hi n to do all in his
power to pass the county school
supervision bill.
Co-operative Book Buying.
We consider ourselvesjvery
lucky to be able to give our
readers a practical object les
son in thepower ot co-opera
tion. When we found that one
of the largest book publishers
had made a great many more
boons lor his 1904 Christmas
trade than he could sell, we
were not foolish enough to offer
to buy the lot because we knew
that we could not get the price
we were after, but with a little
work a syndicate of p100 news-
papersQwas quickly formed and
and tbe entire lot of books tak
en from the publisher at a price
which represented only u por
tion of their actual value. It is
the result of this co oueratiou
that we pass on to our readers
in offering them for the hrst
time an opportunity to pur
chase a 328-page, well printed,
cloth-bound book for 17c per
volume. Please notice the very
complete list of titles in our
NEW HOME LIBRARY, an
nounced elsewhaie iu this issue.
Come and examine the books
and see if yon do not agree with

Mr. Stonerook, Rural Route
Examiner has been to this city
and departed.
The citizens between this city
a TT a 1 ..if
ana uatcii applied tor a new
route to reach them and they
would have put up some 75
boxes Hut, Tbe actual route
is only 18 miles long because
about 3.1 miles of each end of
the route nearest this city is all
ready covered by service.
Therefore, from what we can
learn, the chances are, the ap
plication will be turned down
by the department, while at the
same time those people are en
titled to the route iust the
same as others.

Evidence accumulates that the
strikers are suppliedwith money
to meet their present needs. It
is said that tbey have a fund of
$2,000,000, some of which was

quarters that money is being
lurnisbed from Japanese-British
sources to bring revolution.

that they are to have higher
pay, shorter hours and better
working conditions, are return
ing to their employment.

Although in the city calmness
induced by tbe presence of tbe
military exists, tbe court is fill
ed with intrigue and terror.
The latest sensational report is
that tbe Emperor and imperial
family have fled to Lavadia.

this week as a candidate for re
election as County School Com-1
missioner of Monroe County.
Prof. Rogers is a successful
teacher and is enthusiastic in
the cause of education. By his

who are in the schools to-day.
We feel sure that should Prof.
Rogers be re-elected he will
give the people no cause to re

Mr. W. J. Rouse,

My Dear Sir As I have
changed my location, please
change my paper from Alice

It was my intention to come

did I concluded to stay in Re
publican Kansas a while longer
for it will not be long until Mis
souri will be in tbe same fix as
Kansas is taxed to death. With
best regards I remains yours
truly, J. R. Lkwellen.
