A Letter From Texas ' Editor Democrat I We leit Monroe City, Jan. 2nd at 11:35 midst fog and gloom which stayed with us until after we reached Guthrie. The clouds dispersed in the after noon of the 3rd while were in Guthrie. We spent Thursday in the capital of Ok. The most imposing building in Guthrie is the Masonic Temple. The Car negie library building is a nice structure. We went irom Guthrie to Kremlin by the way of Enid over D. G G railroad. It was 11:30 p. m. when we got out to R. A. Grimes'. We spent two or three days with him and his children. We spent Sunday with Tom Windsor Sunday was almost an ideal day. a little too windy. The roads are fine. There is a world of wheat sown here, and is looking well. Stock is looking well running on the wheat. Cows giving milk like ours on June pasture. There are more Jack rabbits here than ,ln 1901 when I was here. We killed 2 or 3 We got three shots ata Coyate but be was too far away, however, he increased his gallop. A belated train caused us to have to stay all night in Okla homa City. It rained all night, freezing on the trees befor morning. The electric cars had atimi tl it t r tccc in of t-ici on the w ires. The Baptists have a large, beautiful church in this city known as the "Whi te Temple." The 6tyle is a combination of the Gothic and Corinthian. A very large glass dome surmounts the building, lighting the audi torium. The first service was held last Sunday. It will be dedicated Easter Sunday. Viewed as a whole it i a "thing of beauty and a joy forever." The memorial wiudows are a very prominent feature of the building. There must have been a great deal of rain from the amount of water on the ground from Okla homa City to the Red river. We arrived in San Aotonia at 1:30 this morniog, Jan. 1.0. Lou Boone met us at the train and it would be hard to tell who was the gladdest. Mr. Boone and wife are enjoying this 'equable, salubrious climate.

After deliberating twenty-four hours, the jury in the Sebastian mur der case reported a verdict of murder in the second degree and fixed the penalty at ten years in the penitentiary. The prominence of the parties to the tragedy and the trivial matter over which it occurred made this one of the most notable cases ever tried at Paris. John Sebastian, a prosperous farmer, had rented a small field to Ben Sager, a neigbber, for half the c.-op raised, On the morning of October 24th they bad a dispute over the division of the corn, a very few bushels being in controversy. Sager's two sons, at bis direction, bad gone to the field to gather a load, and were doing so when Sebastian arrived upon the scene and claimed that they were gathering from rows as signed to bini in the division After ordering them to stop, be climbed into the wagon and threw the corn out. One of the boys went for his father. He came immediately, Sebastian having gone to the house and secured a revolver in the mean time. A fight followed, In which Ben Sager was instantly killed ana bis son, Claud, so badly wounded that death resulted in a few days. Sebastian was wounded in several places by corn knives wielded by the Sa-gers.

NOT A SUBJECT FOR MIRTH, One of the latest phases of W. C. T. U. work has been the stopping of the sale of a "toy druukard" in Boston. An auto matic toy, representing a man drinking trom a bottle and stag gering about, was selling rap idly from the stands ot street 'fakirs" urtil a Bharp-eyed white ribboner saw what was going forward. A half-drunken man it was who said to the late Mary Jew ett Telford, "If you W. O. T. U. people have done nothing else you have done one thing worth while, you have changed pub lic sentiment so that a poor drunken fellow is no longer Uughed at!" It used to be so that a man foolish and stagger ing through the streets was the butt of id liughter and chil dren's jokes. It is not so now. And when Mn. P. E. Britten, president of the Boston union. lifted the arm of the iw fo sweep away the "toy" she was but following along this line of education, which makes the n cohoiic victim an object of pity and not a subject for mirth.

A. of that city yesterday, and the first thing ne said was: "l adver tised a certain article in my wiudow and sold fifty of them the first day the ads appeared. I inserted an ad 7ertisement in a Chicago newspaper and follow ing that I sold 146 of the arti cles. I am now spending $2,000 a month advertising." Mr. Murray declared that results depend also on the style of copy. He believes, however, that college men do not make the best "ad" writers, as tbey pay attention to the English rather than the eff.-ct of the matter. To make advertise ments appealing Mr. Murray advised the students to be good natured. Price of Papers Go Up. County papers all over Illi nois are advancing their sub scription rates. "Nearly all the publications that have been sold for 11.00 a year are now asking from 25 cents to 50 cents more.

Lamar Wood Will Refund Money if Mi-o-na Fails to Cure You may ask why L;unar Wood is able to guarantee to refund the money unless Mi o-na Stomach Tab'ets cure when no other remedy for stomach troub les i9 sold in this manner, The "reason for this is that ordinary dyspepsia tablets mere ly digest the food, while Mi-o-oa ' builds up and strengthens the digestive system so tht it sooa begins to digest food itself with out pain or distress. If the stomach is only given a rest by using a digestive, the muscles soon become weak, and it is necessary to continue tak iug a digestive tablet after ev ery meal. On the other band, Mi-o-na used before eating, strengthens the stomach so that you will soon be well enough to give up the use of medicine, Mi-o na costs but 50c a box, and makes positive and com plete cures. The best proof of its merits is the guarantee to refund the money if it does not cure thai Lamar Wood gives with every box. It the Republicans of this state hope to carry the state next campaign they cannot commence too soon. States are not carried in a day. The very first thing to do is to reorganize just as soon as possible. We cannot carry the state with such an imbecile organization as we bad in the last state campaign. The party must be inspired with hope; there must be none with the Joe McCoy dynasty. Ver sailles Statesman. Some people wash from hab it,, some because they need it; but the Republican party lead ers of Missouri will have to be soaked in hot water and con centrated lye before they can expect to become lily white.

A pretty, sweet, buxuin young lady of Hannibal arrived Fri eay afternoon to visit friends near Warren. She didn't want her name in the papers. Oh, well we haven't.
