Landon, our county surveyor, who resides at Forest City, has surprised his numerous friends throughout the county, by securing a deputy toassitt him in his work. This was unexpected, as only a very few had any idea that he needed an assistant, or even contem plated such a move. The person secured is quite young, but undtr the careful training offGrant and wife will till the bill to perfection, and we know will give universal satisfaction. This young dep uty was introduced to Grant by his wife last Monday evening, Nov. 15, 1897. W. II. Moore, president, having notitied the governor of the official call for a state convention for good, roads, to be held in St.Louip.Uondav aodT'uesday of next week, November 22 and 23, and requested the governor to name two delegates from each congressional dis trict. In looking over the list selected, we honestly believe there is not one in tive that knows anytluug whatever about road making. C. C. Fuller, of Mound City, was chosen as one of the delegates, and we will waerthut Albert llnrdman can give friend Fuller cards aud spades und then take all the tricks when it comes to practical road making. R. M. White, editor of the Mexico Ledger, is another selection. Bob has been run ning n newspaper for "ni on ter" fifty years, and nil he knows about road mak ing is theory. And so on down the list. We will never hare good roads ns long as theorists are sent lo these gatherings and the praoticiils kept in the rear. We hope the governor at the next deal, will ' put himself iu correspondence with the several county courts with the request that tney rec-immnnd for appointment theirbest practical roid makers for dele gates.Then and not Ml then will ue have the barit practical results in ro id making. The Mis Injpmve'iieiit assiciation pur sues quilrt a different course. This iiB-iocntiou meeti nt Lixing ton December 9 10; we notice in its pro gram that Judge IJ. F.

We hone our county court will select a dele- delegate to attend this meeting, and as Judge Morgan is on the program, it would be good sense on the part or trie court to name him.

E. church, by the pastorsofthe Presbyterian nnd Methodist churches, led by Evangelist Assiter. It has been a long time since our little city has had such a religious awakening, and thus far some 20 confessions have beeu made. Elders Darsie and Owens hare been con ducting n series of meetings at the Union school house, and they two have met with much success. We trust the good work will go on, nnd every family feel the effects of this religious work. A circular letter from State Audior Seibert. announces that no insurance tax will be distributed to the counties this year or next, because the last gen eral assembly failed to appropriate money from the 'County Foreign In surance Tax Fund." in 1807 and 1893, hence the money belonging to that fund cannot be distributed to the various counties. This lack of proper action on the part of our last legislature, will cut short the Holt county reveune nbout 6400, and the various cities alike sum, which is distributed to them on the basis of the number of school children enumerated. The follnwing circular letter has been issued by the Missouri fish com mission: "All persons in Missouri de siring young black bass nnd crappie for public waters or private ponds should apply at their earliest convenience to Phil Koppin, Jr., superintendent oi f or est park hatcheries, St. Louis, or H. G. Carson, superintendent, St. Joseph, Mo., ton one most accessible to the applicant. The expense to applicant will be cost of can and delivery of fish (61), . hich must be sent in advance.

Kunkel was noticed coming into town in his cart. He seemed to be excited and in a hurry, was constantly urging his horse forward. Ho would give the ani mala cut with the whip, then push on tho lines. Those who noticed Barney thought he was acting rather strangely, for he isalways so quiet and reserved. They finally arrived at the conclusion that he was pursued by robbers, that his home was on fire or some dire calam ty had befell him. Next morning meeting him. we inquired of Barney the occasion for hisstrnoge actions. He re plied, "a boy. a boy, a great big boy al my home,"' aad then rushed off, shout ing, "a boy, a boy." A gentleman asked us a few days ago to explain through our columns the difference between ''plurality" and "majority" in speaking of election re turns: Plurality is the excess of the votes given for one candidate over those given for another, or for Hny other. When there are more than two candi dates, the one receiving the plurality of votes may have less than a majority. Majority is the number by which the votes for a successful candidate exceed those for all other candidates. David R. Francis was elected governor of this state yet he was a minority governor; because he did not receive a majority of all the votes cast for governor, yet be had a plurality of 13,233 over E. E. Kimball, his strongest opponent, and vet he fell 0,504 votes short of having a majority over Kimball. Republican, Liiwe, Prohibition, Manning, Union Labor. The tol vote for these three candidates was 262,353. Francis, Demo crat, 255,704. Kimball. Republican, 242, 531. Francis' Plurality, 13,233.

The Mound City News last week published the following corn story: Last Saturday P. D. Murray brought to the News oflice the greatest curiosity of the season. It is n monstrous corn stalk, 11 feet, 4 leches in height, and weighs over twelve pounds. It contains twenty six sections of spur roots, run ning up the stalk about eleren feet. Dozens of farmers hare called and viewed the curious specimen but no one has yet rentured to say that they had ever seen the like before. Maitland has a musical prodigy. Little Vera Caldwell, the 3 year-old daughter of the pastor of the Presby terian church, sings in the choir and makes her soft voice heard by the audi tors in all sections of the church. She meets with the choir for rehearsal and goes to church, where she stands on a chair by her mother, who is organist. Little Vera, while singing in the church services seems deeply in earnest nnd fully appreciative of the responsibility she has assumed. Maitland Herald. If a man had a $W bull pup he would look after it cirefully and not let it run around at night all over town, says an exchange, but if he has a boy- it is different, lie is Urned loose at a tender age to go to the devil, and then people wonder where the great army of tramps, bums, dead-beats, loafers, gam blers, and drunkards come from each decade. Thev are germinated from pure seed, gathered from our homes and sown broadcast on our streets and al leys. It may be that your boy is mak ing a growth in this direction. At nil events the boy ought to be given an equal Showing with the bull pup. William Carter, of Amazonia, hav ing enjoyed "single blessedness" for quite a lengthy period, by chance espied one of the fair widows of Forbes district, who was a candidate for matrimony, and suddenly an inspiration seized him to go t the recorder's oflice, and procure n marriage license. The next step was to secure the services of Squire Price, of Forbes, and forthwith proceed to tho cottnge where the object of his affections resided. Arriving at the home, nil things were found to be in readiness, and soon the "nuptial knot" wus tied and Mr. William Carter and Mrs. rancy King were made one for life. Destiny seems to hold the keys of man rajs teries and quite often unlocks the gates of joy. If any of our subscribers have wells that are failing in water and will put a pint of salt in their wells they will find an increase of water within 21 hours. We do not know the philosophy of the matter, but several instances in town where the experiment has been tried demonstrates beyond a doubt the efficacy of the experiment. Dr.Nickell.E. James, the editor of this paper, and oth ers hare used salt for this purpose and can testify as to the results. The two first named found nn increase of one foot of water in their wells within 24 hours. A little mlt, properly applied, will convince the most skeptical, and we hope all who are suffering a short sup ply of water will try it. -Hazel Green, Ky., Herald.

There was a fall of tho beautiful in this city, Sunday eight, and was the the first snow of the season. The flakes were so few and far between that they could almost be counted. But there were enough cf them to go upon the weather records as a genuine, bona fide snow fall. The change which took place was as sudden as it was decided. The people of our city went to, bed Sunday night with a cloudless sky above them and balmy air about thetu. Earlier in the evening they had set out on the front porch and enjoyed an ideal Indian summer evempg. ihey wotte Monday morning to find the mercury making a bee line for the bottom of the thermome ter. When they went outside the house it was like stepping into a refrigerator. A nipping nnd an eager air took the place of the delightful zephyrs of the preceding evening. Albert H.

Clark was owing a party in Oregon some money on a note. He in tended to make a payment by mail and to this end secured a fiye-dollar bill and laid it away. When he looked for the bill he discovered that bis wife bad re ceived five bright, new silver dollars for it from the campers. He put these dol lars into his pocket and started for Forbes to obtain another five dollar bill for them. On the way he met three horse traders. Smith, t)unlap and Graves, whom he had seen at Forbes the same day. He engaged in conversation with them and casually mentioned the fact that he was going to town after some change, t he traders saia tney could save him the trip and one of them gave him the bill for the silver mosey which got them into trouble at Amazon ia, and which led to the arrest of Clark.
