Sanity Next Monday. Much has been said concerning "a safe and sane Fourth of July." Genu ine effort has been made to reduce the casualty list, by prohibiting the sale of devices dangerous to life: and by appealing to the public to desist from taking risks of all kinds.

To all our Countrv Friends: Come in and get a cool drink. Ice Cream, all flavors. IIINDE DRUG CO. There will be two games of base ball here July 4th between Oregon and one of the best amateur teams in Northwest Missouri. First game at 10 a. m.: second game at 4 p. m. -Chas. J. Koock and R. B. Bridge man were in St. Joseph Tuesday even ing of this week, consulting the of ficers of the Hospital corps of our national guard, in regard to their visit here, the 7th inst. Among the many visitors here Saturday to our horse show, was D. A. Gelvin and family, and Mrs. Gel vin's sister, Miss Sarah Meyers, of Newville, Pa. It used to be that D. A. drove down behind a pair of fine steppers; now he drives down in his machine the world do move. The Twentieth Century has opened with selfishness dominated over pa triotism. Great wealth has given great power which is employed more to promote personal interests than public welfare. This power has been so self-sufficient up to the present time, that public welfare has been a minor consideration. The crisis, how ever, is almost here. The public has borne patiently, but shsws signs of weariness and dissatisfaction. The independence of citizenship commem orated by July 4, is likely to result in strenuous protest against the things that be. The Declaration of Independence has been held by many as a notice served on Great Britain 134 years ago. il was more tnan that tnen, ana is more now. Its spirit if not its words cries out today against injustice and oppression that have been excused too long. There is tribute to wealth, taxation without representation, the will of the people continually thwar ted, an increasing political despotism to which both Republicans and Demo crats contribute. Consideration of all these matters is engaging press and people, and what more appropriate time than the Fourth of July, the birthday of our nation, and the anni versary of independent American citi zenship. The sanest Fourth of July celebra tion that can be devised is one where, the people meet for discussing the great questions of the day, question's of such magnitude and influence on national destiny that cannot be safely, ignored. Such a celebration would do much toward mouldingpublic opinion, toward reaching conclusions, toward reawakening patriotism. It's intelli gence and patriotism that will con tinue the American republic to still greater eminence among nations not noise, fun, and something to drink. Air Pullman's. Count Zeppelin, in Germany, proving that if this be the age young men, ic is aiso tne age ot men who are no longer young. It is the age for every man, as every age has been. It is preparation and love for a task, and not the number of years that tell the tale. The great German aviator, who failed in his undertakings time and time again at a period in his life when manj' a man might have been expect ed to say, "Let somebody else try next time," has j'ust achieved the most no table feat in the realm of dirigible ballooning that has ever been recorded It is a far cry from the haphazard flights of the antiquated balloon with out steering apparatus to the feat which was performed in Germany Wednesday of last week, June 22d when the Deutschland covered a dis tance of 300 miles, carrying 20 pas sengers, and passing over town after town according to a time schedule which had been previously announced Such an achievement was inevitable, given enough time, but the impor tant fact is that it was Count Zeppe- in finally triumphed. He was momentarily aisnearienea oia man not many months ago, when, one of the big aircrafts upon which he had spent ms entire private lortune was wrecked. But he tried again. He put a greater measure of thought and determina- ion into the work and the thrilling result of the 22d of June is the answer. No June Rise. Contrary to the expectations of old river men the "June rise" has not yet materialized. The river is now lower than it has been since the ice went out last March, and has been slowly falling the past several days. The continued cold weather of April, May and June may have had something to do with putting off the June rise, as the snow, which is said to be piled in huge drifts in, the mountains where the headwaters of the river originate, melted slowly. As it is there has been no rise of the river this spring and irtually nothing but local rains have aided in keeping the river at almost a tationary stage. 1 ORECOI -" ?t J V - HIGH SCHOOL.
