Then and Now ,Tbe Editor of The Morning Intelligencer is a personal friend of Hon. Frank Farris and has been for a number of years. It has not been'.' so long a time but what we can remem ber that Gov. Folk's machina tiou3, next to John A Lee, were directed most intensely in hi grand jury days upon this gentleman The locus was per fect probably we should say Folkus so much so in fact that tln Hon. Frank was the objec tive point for all slurs and slights in the boodle category. We never believed any of it; neither did Polk as is shown by bis complete rehabitulation and bis cbaqpioning of Mr. Farris at the present time. Frsnli Farris is conceded to be Folk's leader in the Legislature. Re gardless of the fact that Mr Folk tried to humiliate and dis grace this young man fromCraw ford county, the latter has risen so far above the gentlennu who shovelled so much dirt, that shoveller has come to the con clusion that Frank Farris is the man be needs and much to the discredit ot Farris, he Is using bim.

In the past the hardest work done during the season by any two members of a class, has been done by the Valedictorian and Salutatorian in selecting and preparing their subjects .'for delivery, and they were selected because of their supposed spec ial fitness for the task, bnt that like many other gooi things, has been relegated to the. not-up-to-date closet and frills push ed forward Into its place.

Why should all business men contribute to the New Parochial Residence? Because the Catho lic institutions have attracted settlers and thereby increased the population and almost doubled the comipeocial -business of Monroe City and sur rounding districts. This cannot be denied. Fathers Mullen and Cunning bam, the two genial and en ergftic priests of the Queen of 4 he Pr.iiries, deserve betterac commodation than they have. The Catholics of Monroe City are determined to put up a de cent residence for their priests Their collectors are Messrs. Fee Hagan, Butler- Yates, John Cleary, Rafe Leake, Dr. John Bell. Touy Myers, John Ken drick and Mike Madden. Collectors are out soliciting for the new parochial residence at the Holy Rosary church.

She first tried to pass the post on one side, then the other and then tried to go over the top of it. After she bad gone around the post and was thrown twice, the buggy was a wreck, ' TO DELINQUENTS Several Hnndred Dollars Are DEMOCRAT. Due the L'ke any other busiuess insti tution we have our bills to pay and we have no source of reve nue other than the Democrat. Therefore we must insist on all who owe us paying promptly. In a few days we are going to send statements to those owing us and we will not send them out tor fun, but because we want the money. If you do not want one of these better send in what you owe at' once. Don't think that just because the amount is small you will wait. Should 500 persons each pay one dollar, and there are more than that number owing us that and a larger amount, we would then be in a position to make some needed improve ments. We have e::rned the money orce, now do tot make us earn it again in collecting it, but be prompt to pay. A friendly rivalry as to who will pay most promptly, is what we would like to see Don't forget that you will get an urgent-invitation to pay if you do not pay in a few days.
