Compliments are being showered on Jack Binns, the wireless opera tor who sent out from the steam ship Republic the call for help that brought prompt aid to the stricken vessel. Why Binns should be pick led as a hero, any more than the stewards who aroused the passen gers and helped them away, or the officers and sailors, all of whom merely did their duty, we can't im agine.

Missouri is Wealthy State. Jefferson City, Mo., Feb. 18. State Auditor John P. Gordon has just completed an abstract of the total assessed valuation of all prop erty in Missouri.

The property of merchants and manufacturers is assessed at $108. 101,709 and the total available revenues of the state $8,273,966.16, Mexico has the right sort of an ordinance in regard to minors buy ing liquor. Instead of arresting and fining the saloon keeper, as was the custom heretofore, the boys who buy the whisky are arrested for doing it.
