The committee appointed at a meeting ten dai ago, to look into the advisabil- I ity of our people taking hold of the prop. osition made by Kansas (Jity parties, looking to the building ot an electric motor railroad between this city and r orest City, made their report to the people at a" mass meeting at the court house on Monday evening. The report was not only favorable.but heartily recommended that our people take hold of tho matter, and lend the enterprise all the substantial aid and encouragement possible, as the proposi tion on tho part of tho Kansas City par ties was all that any community might reasonably ask. Hon. Levi Zook, was called to the chair, and presided with much dignity and evinced much interest in the matter, and Clark O. Proud was called to act as secretary. Mr. Proud also took much interest in the project, as also did Messrs. T. C. Dungan, Jxdgo Geo. An derson and many others. After reading the report of the com mittee, tho report was unanimously adopted and tho committee continued with instructions to proceed at onco antl solicit the stock required,$10,0G0. Sever al citizens present, started the boom by announcing that they were ready to subscribe ?3,00 each to tho enterprise, believing as they did, it was the golden opportunity of these two cities, to be connected by an electric railway and lighted by electric lights. The survey of tho lino will no doubt be commenced in a few weeks, or assoon as the weather will permit, and it is time for the citizens of Oregon and For est City to begin to mako up their mind now much stock they will take in the enterprise. les, how much stock are you going to take? Don't say no. Do something! If you can't take stock, make a donation. For heaven's sake if you have any pride in your town; it you have her prosperity at heart; if you would see these two delightful little cities eo in timately and closely connected as to make them the two beautiful t.vin-cities of northwest Missouri, now is yosr golden opportunity. the citizen who is able and refuses to help along this enterprise is surely an enemy of the community in which he lives. Stock in this lino will not only be valuable, but the building of this road will add hundreds of dollars to tho wealth'ofleach and every individual prop erty holder in this city one year after the completion of the road every foot of real estate in the city, as well as every farm for miles around these two places will be worth 13 to 23 per cent more than it is worth to-day. The benefits of such an enterprise are so generally recognized that it stems useless to discuss that feature farther. Tho committee will call on ourcitizer.s, for subscriptions, nnd as the projectors are willing to put up three dollars to our one, surely every citizen, that can possi bly do so, should be willing to put up his money. Now is the time to prove your friendship as a citizen. By reason of Mr. Levi Zook's feeble health, he was relieved from serving on the committee, and his son C. D. Zook wns placed on the committee in his stead. Get in line, everybody. You and each of you owe something to the community in which you live.

Stephenson, the crime being grand larceny; also with stealing a barrel of sorghum mollasses from Peter Sines. Jr., and with stealing and killing two hogs from Robert Pat terson. The two last cases aro petit lar ceny. The parties have waived an ex amination nnd are held for trial at tho next term of the circuit court, which be gins next Monday. These patties claim ed to be from South Dakota. John Stith was arrested on a charge of stealing a quarter of beef and 30 pounds of Hour from Rufus Meyer. The charge is burglary. The ollicers who served the papers in the altove cases wereSheritrCook.Sh'nff elect Edwards, Deputy Sheriff and Con stable Parsons and Frank Graham. They found the Parks crowd in .1 "dug out" on the Everett clearing in ForVes township. The place was well chosen, being well hidden and almost inaccessi ble. They were well armed, but the ollicers being apprised of this "got the drop" on them, nnd made tho capture without much difficulty. Ono of the men, W. C. Davis, has n wife and two children, who are in a distressed condi tion. It is creditable to the humnnity of all those whose property was taken, that each gave the women n portion of the stolen property. Help Your Itrothers.

Murray brought into our office, this week, a Mangel Wurzell beet, weighing sixteen pounds. This beet was grown by L. Murray, of Forbes town ship, on land mat nas oeen in cumva-, tion for fiftv-four years continuously without grass or manure. The yield was at the rate of forty tons per acre, and we consider this a fair showing on old land for a year noted for drouth. Certainly no one on the loess land need be with out beets for cow feed, and no feed will excel them for milk and butter. This beet lieata any boot that we haa seen for a long time.

Ono of the most delightful social eyonts of tho season.was the party given by the Misses Xelho antl Maud Mont gomery, at tho home ot Mr. antl Mrs. Robert .Montgomery, on iuesuayee ning.At an early hour tho invited guests began to assemble, and were soon en joying themselves ns only oung people can. Trie musical program er.riy in tho ovening, was thoroughly ap preciated by nil. Soon thereafter, each guest was given a slip ot paper upon which was written tho uamo of a song, each song being numbered. As tho numbers were called, each person hold ing tho number called, proceeded to an easel upon which had been arranged sheets or paper equal to tho number of guests present, and drew a sketch re presenting the song. Five minutes were allowed for drawing. The sketch was then viewed by the others, who placed tho namo ot tho song represented by tho sketch, upon slips ot paper provid ed for tho purpose. After the twenty songs had lieen represented, and tho merits and demerits of tho respective drawings thoroughly discussed and com mented upon, the lists were handed to a committee of judges to decide who were tho successful guessers. It was found that Mr. Charles Hunker was best en titled to tho "booby prize;" Miss Cora Fryo to the ladies' prize, a handsome solid silver glove buttoner; and Mr. Harvey Evans to she gentlemen's prize, acopy'of Mitchell's "Dream Life." At 'this stage, tho ladies were pre sented with very unique souvenirs in tho shape of gold painted wish-bones, being adorned with a different colored ribbon, neatly tied ;n a bow-knot. The gentlemen were similarly honored, and then began a mer'y search for partners. All were in tho highest spirits when they sat down to tho little tete-a-tete-tables, uiwm which refreshments wero served. Tho hum of voices, the merry Iaughter, and tho beamir g faces told too well of tho happiness that reigned. The hands of tho clock wero nearing the hour of twelve beforo tho merry makers thought f home; but before departing, tho rooms vere made to ring with the melody of the songs which had been so artistically representetl a short while beforo. Roth hostesses antl guests will long remember the evening of January 1, 1S13, nnd will refer to it as ono of tho happiest events of their lives, and a fitting introduction to the New Year.
