The United States Washing Machine has overcome this difficulty. Washing can now be done easily and quickly by any member of the family. You are invited to ex amine the machine at H.

Will is doing a prosperous business and coining money. It is needless to say that his political proclivities are entirely opposite to his brother Hi's, which accounts for his prosperity. Will informs us that he does not "drive hogs" any more.DHe brought his pedigreed bird dog along with him, which he claims has bo super ior in the United States. The Russian influenzaor "la grippe," is no new thing. It is a singular coin cidence that there was an epidemic of a similar character in the West about 50 years ago. Its first appearance followed so closely the election of Gen. William Hen ry Harrison to the Presidency in 1843 that it was popularly called "the Harri son grip." Some of the old residents say that it was accompanied by bowel troub les ss the present epidemic appears to be in Europe; and as President Harrison died of a disorder of the bowels, the assumption was made that the "grip" was the same disease that had proven fatal in his case, and that for this reason it was called the "Harrison grip." It appears to have prevailed in different sections for a year or twa In the sum mer of 1843 President Tyler visited Bos ton, and the epidemio appeared almost simultaneously, which led to its being cilled the "Tyler grip," which name for it became common all orsr New England. The present influenza seems to be an epidemic of exactly the same Irind as thit which prevailed ia the early '40's. Sewing"' Machine Needles and Sup plies for sale by H. E.

People who are in comfortable cir cumstances and are not in a position to bear of the sufferings of others, have bo conceptions of the wrongs which thous ands of others are suffering every day. The Quincy Journal turns itself loose in this bit of wisdom: "The wildest dreamer cannot tell what will be fifty years from now. The census ot 1900 will surely give St. Louis a million in habitants. And we believe that ths census of 1910 will give Kansas City that number. And that is only twenty yean away. Who dare to predict what tba population ot Missouri will be in 1910? That great commonwealth ia merely in its infancy as yet. Missouri is, eight and one-halt times as large as Massachusetts. When it is densely populated it will contain a population of 17,000,000. And that day will surely come." Postmaster William Hyde of St. Louis was in the city, and if rumor be correct, on business connected with a newspaper venture, backed by Colonel "Grit" Prather of St. Louis. Cokmol Hyde wanted the Gazette, but could not get it. The democratic party needs a strong party organ in this section and Colonel Hyde is to be the editor of the mouthpiece ot that faction who do not like the Gazette's politics. It is aaid, too, that Waller Youag is ta some way connected with the enterprise. Colonel Hyde has kept dear of interviewers th us far, and beyond the fact the fie has not secured the Gazette, but little is known ot n8 pltws. Br. Joseph News.

Nearly everybody turns to the alma nac at the new year to see what eclipses it may have in store for us. The year 1890 is not fruitful of these pheonmenona. There are two eclipses of the sun, neither total, and neither visible on this conti nent. There will be a partial eclipse ot the moon, visible only in that porsion of the United States west of the Dakota, on November 26; and a lunar appulse on the night of June 2. That, is, the moon will approach very near to the black cone ot the earth's shadow, perhaps even touch it. Therefore, a "lunar appulse" is an embryotic eclipse. Its nearest point of approach will be at 43 minutes past midnight on the morning of June 3; and the almanac adds the following re mark :The nearness of the approach and uncertainty as to the effect of the earth's atmosphere render it doubtful whether the moon will en tor the shadow ot the earth, causing a partial eclipse, or not. The St. Joseph Gazette, 8th inst.. contains the following account ot the death of J. II. Buchanan of the Buchan an Comedy Company, which occupied the boards at Union Hall week before last: "Henry Buchanan, a member of the Buchanan Company, was murdered at Stanberry, Saturday eight. The de tails of the murder as given to a news paper correspondent are as follows: The murdered man met a stranger named Wallace and the two took in Stanberry together and became intoxicated. When the company met for rehearsal, Buchan an was found sitting on a chair on the stage. Supposing him to be drunk, no attenkm was paid to him during the progress of the rehearsal. Finally Buchanan fell from the chair and when picked up was found to be dead. Aa examination showed that he had been poisoned. No money was found, on his person and a dear case- of murder and robbery was revealed. Wallace was ar rested and circumstances point strongly to bis guilt." Buy your Wall Paper of IL E. Denri?

Last Saturday was one of the most important anniversaries in the history of Missouri. Twenty-fiw years ago January 11, 186S, slavery was abolished in this State by an ordinance passed by a convention sitting in St. Louis. As the President's proclamation of January 18G3, did not apply to Missouri, and as the Thirteenth Amendment was not oBcially declared a part of the Constitu tion until December 18, 1863, this action on the part ot Missouri was voluntary and unforced.

Aured Fabujw: Deab Sir: Replying to your open letter in last week's Sextixex, I have to say: 1st. That I am ready for business, in accordance with the terms of my pro position, which you accept. 2nd. That, if the people of this com munity, among whom I have moved as a Minister of the Gospel, for the past seven years, bare been so grossly deceiv ed in me as a gentleman, as your insinu ation would lead a atranger to believe, then it is but right that some one should disabuse their mindsfif Christian(?) Science(?) allows them any minds of their own, and who is better able to enlighten them than yourself, since you are a comparative stranger to the people here, and since your doctrine teaches that, ?Man should have no other mind than God. In reality he has not. It is only a delusion that he seems to have." In the meanwhile I shall continue to hold that public opinion is an open field, and, in public and private, will seek to plow up that which I sincerely believe the Word or God points out as perni cious seed whose tendency is to root out the wheat ot the Gospel.
