An' hung 'em up around the rooms to be admired by friends of ours. She'd take her brush an' dabs o' paint an make a box of berries there A-standin' out as real as life an' lookin' just as fresh an' fair. But now she's quit a-paintin' fruits fer other subjects that appeal Tne latest thing that sister's done in oil is called "A Leg of Veal." lWaS just a little while ago she painted somethin' pretty fine A bunch o' grapes as natural as though they hung upon the vine; An' a basket on a stand was cher ries an' bananas, too; With oranges an' apples both a-sort o' peepin' into view. 'Twas mighty nice, but somethin' that she done today just takes the cake. It shows a link o' sausages, a bone an' a sirloin steak. ham- No, sister don't paint fruits no more but she can paint a mutton chop bo natural . you d swear twas one just come irom the butcher's shop An' critics say her loins o' pork an' weiner-wursts an' short ribs, too, Are far above the average, an' that her legs 0' lamb are true. Pa thinks her future will be great, an' he predicts she's made a start That's bound to revelutionized what people once construed as "art." E. A. Brininstool, in Los Angeles Express. There are at present two real candidates for the United States Senatorship . on the Democratic ticket They are David R Francis, who announced last week and James A. Reed who announced in December. Both are big men and would honor Missouri and the Dem ocratic party in. the Senate. Reed is-a regular Benton, Jim Green or a Vest on the stump. As ' an orator he has not an equal in the state Francis is a man of large affairs and a man of big influence and a big reputation. Friends of Ex- Governor Folk are urging him to enter the race. We are for anyone of the three that gets the nomina tion at the fall election. Some of the friends of Folk and many Mis sauri Democrats are urging Folk for the democratic nomination for President Any way the Demo crats of Missouri fix the matter up will be perfectly satisfactory to us and should be to every Democrat in the state. All we can and do ask for is the nomination of good, clean men for office. We don't care an iota whether they were old guards, new guards or home guards Just so they are not blackguards. Every Democrat will be called upon to make a choice; but in doing this there is no use in trying to raise a racket with the other fellow. Clarence Courier.
