The St. Louis Republic in its is sue of November 27th, 1910. fur nishing a tabulated statement of the Democratic vote at the United States senatorial primary, makes an 'incontrovertible argument in support of the proposition, that Hon. James A. Reed is the popular harmonizer of the Democrats of the Imperial State of Missouri, and that Democracy in Missouri is now, and will remain, harmonious. 1 Behold, how good and , how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. 2 It is like the precious oitment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard; that went down to the skirts of his gar ments. 3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion, for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore Psalms 133. Vote of United States senatorial primary: Reed.'.-.-. 136,238 Francis 106,742 Reed's majority over Francis 29,496 Bond 4,878 Breckenridge 3,843 Cumberland 892 Shewalter 3,789 Francis 106.742 Total -4 120.144 Reed's vote 136.238 Combined vote of Bond, Breckenridge, Cumberland, Shewalter and Francis 120,144 Reed's majority over all--. 16.C94 You cannot by argument destroy the solid facts the arguments are as vapor, the facts remain the Democracy of Missouri demonstrat ed their choice, and fused into the discordant elements, so that today James A. Reed enjoys the proud pre-eminence of having fairly and openly achieved the distinction of being entitled to the unanimous vote of the Democratic legislature of imperial Missouri.

FARMERS iiO;i!UTE To Be Held In Konroe 0. y Next Wed- nesday and Thursd'jy, Should Be Well Attended. Th(J Dcmocrat lsi, ie:ter from Hon. T. C. receipt oi a V'ilson, Sec retary of the State Bonl of Agri culture. Mr. V.'ils-.u 1 hanks the Democrat for the prominence fciven stock notice and says ihith. has arranged to furnish four good speak ers for a two days Farmers Institute at Monroe City on Dcj. 7 and 8. He expressed the hope that it would be properly advertised. The Democrat takes great pleasure in advertising meetings of this kind when we have facts, but in this case we are not in a position to advertise it properly as we do not know anything regarding the time the lectures, are to be delivered, or the subjects to be discussed. How ever, if anyone interested will call us up over the phone later, we will give all the information possible. Every one interested in better form ing should arrange to attend this Institute It will do the commun ity good. Come. P. E. 0.

Prohibition was. defeated in Mis souri at the recent election, accord ing to official announcement, by 218,125. It received 207,281 votes with 425,406 against it, and carried only 37 of 115 counties. Clock Keeps Perfect Time. The most acurate timekeeper in the world is said to be the electric clock in the basement of the Berlin observatory. It is inclosed in an airtight glass cylinder, and her fre quently run for periods of two or three months with an average daily deviation of only fifteen one-thousandths of a second. Yet astrono mers are not satisfied even with this, and efiorts are continually be ing made to secure ideal conditions for a clock by keeping it not only in an airtight case, but in an under ground vault where changes neither of temperature , nor of barometric pressure shall ever affect it.
