A double pleasure came to the Woman's Missionary Society of the First Baptist church, June 21. The ladies met at the de lightful country home of Mrs. W. A. Barton for their June meeting and at the same time to celebrate the fiftieth anniver sary of the hostess. No one wears her fifty years more light ly than does Mrs. Barton. There were fifty present includ ing three gentlemen, one for each year of her life. The pro gram was in charge of Mrs. D A. Ely, and was conducted in an easy dignified manner which made it one of the most interest ing meetings of the year. Each participant performed her part well and imparted much knowl edge as to the Italians in Amer ica. After the program a social hour was enjoyed where all talked at once except for the break that came so pleasantly when light and dainty refresh ments were served. Beautiful womanhood, happy girlhood, flowers and frappe were the dec orations for the occasion. About 5 o'clock the ladies re luctantly departed, wishing Mrs. Barton many happy re turns of the day, each declaring that it bad been not only a pleasant but a profitable after noon.

Oitimes 1 have seen a tall ship glide by against the tide as if drawn by some invisible bow with a hundred strong arms pulling it. Her sails hung unfilled, her streamers were drooping, she had Deither side wheel nor stern wheel; still, she moved on, stately, iu serene triumph as if by her own life But I knew that on the other side of the ship, hidden beneath the great bulk that swam so majestically there was a little, toiling steam tug. with a heart of tire and arms of iron that was hugging it close and drag ging it bravely on; and I knew that if the little steam tug un twined its arms and left the tall ship, it would wallow and roll about, and it would drift hitner and thither, and go off with re fluent tide, no man knows where. And so I have known more lhan one genius, high decked, full freighted, wide sailed, gay pennoned, that but for the bare toiling arms, and brave warm beating heart of the faithful little wife that nestled close to him so that no wind or wave could part them, would soon have gone down stream and been heard of no more. Oliver Wendell Holmes. Monroe County has a poor farm of 160 acres. Ramshackle, inconvenient and exceedingly uncomfortable buildings that are expensive to beat and care for. As things are it costs not in cluding farm $1.85 each per week for the thirty paupers. Judge James T. Umstattd baa investigated conditions in Shel by and Macon counties and con cludes that the best thing from any and every point of view for the county to do, would be to sell the farm for it will fetch $7,000 to $9,000 what it will bring and build an infirmary as other counties have done and are doing and take care of our own insane as well as paupers. Judge Umstattd showed us a letter from C. L Ennis, County Clerk of Shelby county, which, in substance is: Our infirmary cos. us $10,000 and the first year the most expensive one, be cause bedding, etc. had to be purchased we saved $2,300 and that does not include transpor tation which would have been necessary to and from asylums, if we bad not have bad an In firmary. An answer from the Clerk at Macon was in substance the same. Then why not. if you wish to be humane, to be economical, to be progressive and to have everything right at band as it should be. build an Infirmary in Monroe County and keep thous ands of dollars per annum at home that are now necessarily sent away from home. Do you know that in cold weather it is well nigh impossi ble for the keeper of the poor farm to keep its inmates com fortable in the day time and to keep them from freezing to death at night. Think this matter over care fully, take it to heart and if you care nothing for the poor nor the iusane. then take the cold pulseless $ into consideration and treat it wholely and soul lessly from a commercial stand point and give Judge James T. Umstattd your hearty support in the effort to better conditions both for the helpless and the TAX PAYER. New Duds. The negro ball team will now put on airs with the best of 'em. Their new suits, caps and all, have arrived. They are a pret ty blue and will make the boys look like dead game sports. , Century Club. The evening picnic and supper-by-moon-light given by the Century Club at the Rjck House Tuesday was an unusual ly pleasant affair. Besides the eighteen who went In the ex cursion wagon, thirty-two went in private conveyances. A lot of children never gamboled on the green with more earnestness, nor ate their supper with x greater appetite. Mark Hoblet of Masonville, III., knows a good thing when be sees it and lived la Missouri long enougb to kcow where to tlnd it. Borden & Ragia have .hipped him a $35 set of harness. Four Bucklin young men just for the fun of it jumped on a freight train and rode to New Cambria, 8 miles away. There they jumped on another freight to ride home. The train reaches Bucklin and does not stop. The young men now attempt to jump from the train. Three succeed. One hangs li the car ladder and Is horribly manglel and is taken home dead.
