It is proposed to hold a "Missouri Fruit Show" in connection with the St. Louis exposition litis fall. No better opportunity can be affortled to adver tise Missouri as one of the greatest lrait producing states in the Union. Tbe secretary of the Missouri State Hor ticultural Society. L. A.

One of the msteries of animated nature is tbe strange taste of that in dustrious insect known as the cbiggcr. He will sneak up the hairy leg of a man, and dull bis teeth gnawing a hole for himself deep in the callous flesh, when be could just as well hop on a woman's bulging calf, and gorge on succulent icndemess uutil be expired in testacy. Thero are just as many women as men, and, as testified to by cannibals, the quality and flavor of their flesh, eittur raw or cooked, is far superior to that of tbe male. As tbe chiggcr eats raw meat only, it is past understanding why he persists in at tacking tbe muscle and bone of a mm, when a perpetual picnic awaits him if he wculd use some judgment in pros pecting for provender.

Monday, Jim Linvillc and a fellow named Green were arrested and tried for disturbing Ihe peace. They were fined $25 and coats, and wc:c sent to jail to stay it out. The others have not yet been caught. When they are, they will probably go to the pen," as is now known that there was a conspiracy formed to mn Murray out of the country. The scene ot the outrage is 011 tbe old Jake Brusha place. A neighbor by tho name of Doyle bad a cow to fall over .1 bank a few weeks ago and kill herself, and blamed Murray for setting dogs al ter her and causing the accident. This and a jug of very poor whisky, which the crowd had with them, arc the only reasons known for the disgraceful and villainous proceedings. Avalanche. Democrat.
