Four men were arrested In Kansas City the fit st of tho week in con netlon with an alleged $25,000 oil bwindlc in which James Allamong of Tina, Carroll count, was the victim.

Society In the Capital city Is begin ning to realize tho seriousness of tho v.hlte paper shortage. The soclct editor eif the Democrat-Tribune closes an account of a boclal affair with thtsc lines, "Many beautiful gowns vvero worn by the guests, but tho scarcity of print paper compels us to refrain from writing more fully," When we read of the open season on whist experts In New York, of the race wars In Duluth and of the head less body found In a lake noar St. Joseph, the labor troubles and the cost of living, declares the Central Missouri Republican, we are satisfied to remain in a little city like Boon vllle.

The Butler Times complains that city has been afflicted with wiek stand tent fellows, the variety that proves Barnum knew what ho was talking about when he said the Am-erle-an public likes to bo fooled.

Circuit clerk blames old II. C. of L. for frightening the young folks away from his desk. At the close of the first ten days of June only four cou ples had asked the, legal permission. However, the marriage market stead ied as the month advanced and de veloped a firm tone b the end of the month. The number of licenses reached ten by the 'middle of the month, fifteen on the twentieth nnd twenty-four at the close. This Is far below the record of other June's, says the Moberly Monitor-Index, last year forty-two licenses were issued,- Rounding out his sixtieth year of farming without changing the va riety of corn and potatoes he uses is the record of A. 'Zumwalt, 80 years old, who lives near Cedar Creek in Boone county. According to the Sturgeon Leader, Mr. Zumwalt was given the white seod corn and the old fashioned blue potatoes by hla father who started him in farming. Since that time he ha raised his own beed.

Louis several years ago to nomi nate a candidate for president. Arch bishop Glcnnon was called upon to deliver a prayer; whereupon he pro nounced the Lord's Prayer. Vocifer ous applause Immediately followed. The Archbishop, not a little surprised at the unusual demonstration, turned to Senator Ben Tillman, who was sit ting on the platform, and asked why the audience happened to applaud the prayer. "I suppose it was because the pra)er was so short." replied the Pitchfork Senator. "No, no," Inter jected John Sharp Williams, of Mls slbhjppl, "they are applauding it be cause they never heard it before." Mosby's Missouri Message.

On July 4, 1889, a group of Sedalians were In the Peter Pehl cafe discussing the court house, Ben Lyon averred that If the tower ever fell It would fall to the north. Will iam Steele was just as positive it would fall to the south. The Sedalla Democrat sajs they bet lemonade. Fancy betting lemonade at Peter Pehl'H thirty years ago! But It Is against the policy of this 'colyum" to contradict an exchange, so let It be said that the crowd decided to have the lemonade right then and there. Peter served it and has been waiting all this time to find out who owed him. When the court house burned the tower fell to tho north and Peter Pehl reminded William Steele that the bill, $1.50 for lemon adeji, was due. However, he gayly waved the payment that waa promptly tendered, saying he wanted a "little time" to figure the interest. ' Thomas II.
