The City of S-ivannah owns her own electric light plant and runs more street lamps than Marjville, a city three times as large, which bins her light from a private corporation. She only charges thre'e-fourths as much to private con sumers ns Maryville people pay for in enndescent lights, and yet the income from our pKnt gives the city our street lights practically free. If the city of St. Joseph would retire its bosses and let its business men take charge of affairs, and apply the same methods, it could own its own water works and save thous ands of dollars for the people.

At the central California veter an association encampment he acted as adjutant, lie desired to be remembered to fcis many former Holt county friends. A dangerous and foolish practice in dulged in by thoughtless persons some times is that of leaving a biuall child in a wagon or buggy with horse or team attached while the alder person "just steps into the postofllee or to the stre door." Xo matter how gentle a horse may bo it is likely to bo scared and run nway and endanger the life of the child. Don t leae your helpless child in such jeopardy. This is frequently done with out realizing the danger. Either tie the team r take tho child out with you. Ex. - The Missouri state board of agricul tore has taken steps looking towards the establishment of a state fair at suitable point in the state. The location has not yet been determined on. Mexico, Moberly, Sedalia and other pointy will be bidders for the fair. The last state fair in Missouri was held at lioonville. Its lail meeting was held on the.'fj of October, lS-Yi, and continued four days. The officers of the fair were: M. M.

Our little city on Monday evening, of this week, had a narrow escape from a lire, that had it obtained full headway, would have destroyed th entire busi ness center of our city. It was the night of the regular meeting of the Masonic lodge, and the janitor had given the lamps, etc., his attention, and lighting the lamps in the center chandelier, left, going down stairs, closing all the doors. One of the arms of the chandelier hhd slipped from its position, and had been temporarily replaced by some parties on a former occasion, and the janitor, not noticing this, placed one of the lamps in the socket of the replaced arm, ami lighting it, with others in the same chandelier left On his return, perhaps a few minutes before time for the lodge to convene, he was surprised, almost horror stricken, on stepping inside the ante-room.to find it, as well as the lodge room proper, so tilled with smoke that it was almost impossible for him to en ter. Forcing his way through t he smoke, he opened the doors and windows. lie found the lamp in the weak arm had fallen to the tloor, and burned a large space in the carpet, and did no further damage. Strange as it may 6eera the lamp had gone out of its own nccord. and thus had B'-ved the Masonic and Odd-Fellows hall, nnd with them no doubt that portion of the business part of our city.

A. Solt was elected leader with power to point a leader from time to time as he may chose. The first Tuesday night in each month was decided on as the time of meeting. The band of 21 members desire the co operation of all Christian people, and the presence of all who seek an interest iu Christ. XXX. The meetings at the Xew Point Christian church came to a close on Sunday night of last week, with livo baptisms, as tho result of Elder Tandy's labors. An erroneous lmprecsion was made by one of our contemporaries in stilting lha. Elder Tandy would retire from the pulpit. He informs us that he does not contemplate any such acliuo, but expects t'i remain in his chosen field that he loyeH so well. He now has tho Corning, Xew Point and Wilcox charges. For tho purpose of mquiring into the assessments of various citizens, the Henry county grand jury summoned J. S. Calfee, cashier of the Citizens' Bank, and W. M. Osborn, cashier of the Farm ers' Bank, both of Windsor, to appear before it with reguters of time deposits. The cashiers refused, contending it was invasion of rights. Circuit Judge Lay ordered them to produce the bonks, not for geueral inspection by grand jurors, but to reveal the time deposits of cer t on citizens in force June 1, IS07. By mutual agreement the grand jury has adjourned until March 10. Meantime formal proceedings will be instituted by the two cashiers before the supreme court to determine tho inquisitorial rights and powers of a grand jury over bank books and records.

As the groom is noted far and near as the popular coach for the M. S. U. ball team.they doubtless send hearty congratulations to him and his fair bride "Tiger! Tiger! M. S. U." "And the 'tiger and tho lamb shall lie down together." A Pretty Wedding. Oue of the most pleasant weddings that ever occurred in Mintnn township was celebrated at tne residence of Wm. J.

The day was bright, the air was warm and balmy, and the many guests that assembled to witnsss the nuptials of Charles anCamp and Cora Alkire were jovial, good-humored and happy and all indeed went "as merrv as a marriage bell." When the hour for the ceremony arrived Mrs. Julia Minton, wife of Dr. J. R. Minton and sister of the bride, presiding at the organ, played Mendelshon's wedding march, while the bride and groom entered the parlor, pre ceded by Henry Alkire, brother of the bride nnd Lor a Van Camp, sister of the groom. Proceeding to the center of the room they were met by Judge Henry T. Allure, ot Oregon, uncle of the bride, who officiated in an impressive style and performed the legal ceremony that join ed these two young people for life in holy wedlock.

Maitland Herald. That Correction. Tho local to which, in last week's issue of The Sentinel, reference wsb made under the heading "A correction, mu-it have been either carelessly or else hastily read. At least we are willing to let the readers of The bENTl.NEl.be the judges in the case, for in the local 1'iere was no statement, nor intentional intimation even, that the good Methodist brethren were not engaged in mis:in work in some of the countries on the continent f South America. In fact. anv one acquainted with tho activities of this age ought to know- that the lethodists and other Protestant churches, besides the Presbyterians, are at work in several of those lands, hot if the Methodist or any of the other of the Protestant churches are doing mission work in the government of Columbia except the Presbyterian church, we do nut know it, aud that is all that was said in the bcal to which objection was made. It read as follows: "Rey. Willis Weaver, of Elmgrove, spent last Sabbath in Ore gnu, and in the evening assisted Rev. Henry A. Sawyers, giving an account of his experience as h missionary in Colum bia, South America. The Presbterian church is the only Protestant church that works in that land and is accom plishing a good work." If the good Methodist people, or any other of the Protestant churches are at work in that gnernment or land we s hall be glad to know it and will rejoice in the fact for more workers are needed. But if they are nut, all that was stated in the local 6 true and we can not admit we were m staken until satisfactory proof to that e:tect is produced. 3ESTTRAINS Nebraska, Colorado, Montana, Black Hills, Utah, California, Puget Sound, Chicago and St. Louis, VESTIBULED THROUGH TRAINS, SLEEPERS, DINING CARS, nm nnincsTst wiwimi vnuv FREE ELLIOT MA RS HA LL, Div.
