ReaGrx Treatment of llyomel. Broncial troubles are purely local. They cannot be helped, by stomach dosing. They are cansed by irritation in tbe air J passages and can be relieved h ana cured by medicated air alone. In this lies tbe secret of ot the great success of Hy-o-mei iu the treatment of bronchial troubles. The first breath of Hy-o-mei's medicated air soothes tbe in flammation, stops cough, and relief soon becomes permanent and a cure results. Hy o-mei has made many re markable cures in tbe worst and most chronic forms of bronchial troubles ana is sold by L. M.

Jimmie Whttecotton, Monroe's $700 registered shorthorn beau ty, has been a member of the General Assembly for a whole week and tbe woods are not on fire as yet. Of course it was confidentally predicted that Cottontop would finish up tbe business in thirty minutes after being sworn in and move an ad journment But tbe prodigy, though heralded as a wonder, performs like an ordinary plug, and tbe daily dispatches from Jefferson City continue to read, "nothing doing."

Tbe bill expressly provided that an amount not to exceed the appropriation should be used. Gov. Folk, the state treasurer, two supreme court judges and the attorney general were made a committee to see that tbe provisions of the bill were carried out. It now ap pears that there is a $215,000 excessive expenditure made and the governor wants this legisla ture to appropriate this amount to complete the building, Tbe legislature should do nothing of tbe kind. When they pass a law which expressly says that a cer tain amount should be used and no more, and then tbe committee goes ahead and spends more than twice the appropriation the legislature ought to reject tbe claim. We believe in tbe strict enforcement of tbe law and $187,000 is all tbe state of, Missouri ought to pay. Macon. Times-Democrat. M. A Horn back, of Palmyra, spent Saturday withj Monroe fr lends.
