The legislature ad journs with the state a million dollars to the bad. This was a Democratic legislature and of course the party' must take the blame or credit.

E Sharp was a business visitor In Hannibal Tuesday ' '' Takes a Fall, . The Huntsville Herald takes ja fall out of the Fayette Adver tiser for criticising Democratic papers opposed to the calling of a special session; as though Governor Folk, or for the mat ter of that, any public official, was above criticism.
