Good Sense From an Old Editor.
Death, of Elder Hardman.
Anthony Hardman was born in Bed
ford county, Pennsylvania, December 29
1825, and died Friday, November 27,
1903, at 10:30 p. m., aged 77 years, 10
months and 27 days, after an illness of
about two weeks' duration. In early
life he moved from Pennsylvania to West
Virginia and afterwards to Ohio, and
finally about the year 1875 to Holt coun
ty, Missouri, where he resided until the
day of his death. He was united in
marriage to Miss Mary E. Sliger, Febru
ary 16, 1845. To this union nine children
were born, four sons and five daughters
all of whom survive him except one
daughter, who died in childhood.

It seems that it has been discovered
that Missouri has a claim of nearly half
a million dollars against the general gov
ernment growing out of the civil war. If
it should be allowed by the government,
we hope and trust that the state may be
obligated in some way, that it shall not
be juggled in such a manner that the
tax-payers will be called upon to pay in
terest on the amount. Otherwise it
would be a better financial investment,
to the tax-payers, at least, that the claim
be not allowed.

of Uncle Marcus. Six years ago he was
elected by a majority of two on joint bal

Ohio appreciating Mark Hanna, but he
is now understood and appreciated by
the people of the United States as a
great, big, level-headed, able, just and
successful man. Few men, individually,
employ so large a number of men, be
tween 0,000 and 7,000, as does Senator
Hanua, and he never had a strike or any
serious trouble with them. These are
the things which have knocked into
smithereens the arguments of dema
gogues who have denounced Senator
Hanna. His working men stand by him
and stand up for him on every and- all
occasions. It is a case of honest merit
