SCOTT. Mayor of the City of Monroe, Mo. GEO. W. TOMPKINS. City Clerk The Democrat wants to print your ale bills. ucurg lump&ius, jr., ana wne or Kansas City, arrived Monday to visit relatives and friends. r i r i.i v , . Enlargement of the Gizzard. The Warrensburg papers two of them Ht least the Star-Journal and the Democrat are getting mighty generous toward their town, in fact, so liberal that one on the outskirts would be lead to believe that either the town purse has been stepped on by an elephant or the aforesaid newspapers' money boxes are bursting 'with the fullness thereof." All of which has to do with a lot of street paving in the State Normal city and the legal notices and their publication, the Democrat, thru a spurt of uncon querable generosity offering to pub lish tiem the required length of time for just an even one-hall price. The St ir Journal, it appears has heretofore had its snoot in tlu trough to its eyes and ears jj .:& ing by what the Democrat sa.s and rather than be h.-ged out oi it good fee.), likewise suffered a stmki of uncontrol ibie g. nerosity in 1 u simply oiled ovtr with libtr.iiit; and, for the next twelve inn . months said it would publish th notices free of char.-f. provided ih city would accept .urh publication,-, in lieu of any and all contributions on its part toward street improve ment. All of which reminds Tlu' Windsorite that some three yeur.-. ago the city of Windsor wanted to let its city printing to "the lowest bidder." The Windsorite bid also bit, but well, this paper didn't get the work, being altogether too high having submitted a bid of al mos one-half the regular rate. The contract was let for the muniffici ent rate of one-fifth of one cent per line, and insofar as we know, that rate still stands, this paper failing to see the justice in charging a mer chant and the patron in general five cents a line and the city a one twenty-fifth rate. Warrensburg Windsor, or any other town should pay the printer just as well as its attorneys, its clerks, its marshal, o, any one else, and this enlargement of the gizzard on the part of news papers don't buy very much livei or beefsteak these days. Anywa it is too often the case that the more a newspaper gives away, tlu less it is appreciated at least wt- have quite often found it so within tne past thirty years the next thir ty may be different.
