The cleaning up time of the year is now upon us. Not only house cleaning needs your attention, but the yards, the back alleys,; the trees and shrubbery to trim up,, broken down fences to be re paired, loose boards in the sidewalks to be nailed down: in fact there are many things to be done, and all go to ward one object -the beautifying of our city.

It is rumored that the Burlington road will put on an additional passen ger train each way between Villisca and St. Joseph, beginning the 1st of May. This is said to be to accommodate the World's Fair travel. At present pas sengers who go to St. Louis by way of St, Joseph are compelled to lay over all day at the latter place. In fact, they are unable to go anywhere from St. Jo seph until evening. Now, the St Louis travel goes by way of Burlington Junc tion and the Wabash, leaving i.i the evening. Maitland Herald. A new time card went into effect on the Burlington, Sunday last, as follows: 0maha Flyer, south, four minutes later; 41, B. & M. west, 8 minutes later; 22, main line, south, 8 minutes later; 15, B & M. west, 22 minutes later. Villisca is five minutes earlier, hence the mail for this train will now leave at 4:25 in stead of 4:30 as heretofore. None of the B. fe M. trains going eouth stop at For est City, which we think is a mistake. The train going south on the main line on Sundays dee? the local work between Forest City and St. Joseph. The B. & M. trains going west, known as Nob. 15 and 41 stop at Forest City as heretofore.

Cochran, the present incum bent, places C. F. Booher, decidedly in the race. With flattering prospects of Nodaway being for him, it looks as if it might be Booher. But St. Joseph will have the final say, and if they adhere to their old time prejudices, they will be for Cochran or Moran, for in the esti mation of the average voter down there, no man is eligible to congress unless he is a resident of St. Joseph. The cold streak that struck us Fri day and Saturday last, April 8th and 9th, caused some one. in fact, several, to remark, that "they never saw such an April." In fact, snow has fallen here 29 Aprils since 1855.

In 1893, we had snow on the 13, 20, 21: ice was formed during this time und all vegetation frozen. Fruit buds opened amid the cold and wind. In 1894, we bad frost and ice on the 22d and snow on the 20th. In 1897, we had snow and ice on the 16, 17, 19th. The coldest April was in 1857; coldest was 9 degrees, the highest, 67. On the 2d. 1899, we had a three inch fall, and on the 1st,' 1901, a 2 inch fall and on the 8th, 1904, a 2 50 inch fall..

A decision in the Diogley tariff law brings "frog's legs" in the class of dress ed pultry. We like them better than we do chicken and we never throw chicken and dumplings over our should- er. We have never been able to classify frogs' legs. With us it has been a ques tion as to whether they belong to the class of fish or meat. We know they are good and so far as we are concerned do not need classifying. Recently while looking at some magazines that were teo years old, we could not help but note bow fast we are advancing. In them coaW be found no advertisements of automobiles, talking machines, pianolas, etc. A decade now works wonders, and if any man desires to keep in the procession it behooves him to keep well towards the front or he will drop out If any man gets ten years behind, the chances are that he will never catch up again, If you have a magazine that is ten years old or old er, look it over and -note the changes that have been made. ' At a congregational meeting held Wednesday night, April 6th, 1904, the Presbyterians decided to baild a new church.

In the summer of 1870, Bayard Taylor, the renowned American poet and traveler, was a guest of the English Geographical association in London. At a dinner given in his honor, Mr. Taylor was asked where, in his opinion, was lo cated the best agricultural section of the world. Stepping into the chart room he pulled down a map of the United States, and placing his finger on the spot designated as St. Joseph, Mo., he said, "In my travel, I have visited j nearly every civ ilized country on the globe, and as the result of my observa tion, and in answer to your query, I am free to say that in my jugraent within a radius of two hundred miles of St. Jo seph is located the inot desirable and prolific agricultural section of the uni verse." Mr. Taylor's deduction was good thirty four yeara ago; has always held true, and is today aniversally rec ognized as a fact. The people of Noda way county have reason to congratu late themselves that their abiding place is located in the very center of this glo rious and prosperous re?Maryville Tribune. Holt county .also helps to form the hub of th 9 great agricultural producing center, and ne ae who has ever farmed here bn t what will agree with Mr. Taylor.
