The disposition prevails that nn enthusiastic Folk Club should be organised at once, and it has been decided to hold a public meeting lu Circuit Court room Monday night, August 10, to organize and get lu line with Democrats all over tho State on the basis formulated in the petition. Following is the full text of the dec laration of principles and the signers up to the time of going to press: DKCLAllATION OF l'llISCIPI.ES. Wheieas, Joseph W. Folk, Circuit Attorney of bt. Louis, challenges the udmjration and respect of all law abid ing citizens of the state of Missouri, regardless of party affiliations, by his fearless and able prosecutions in tho Circuit Court of St. Louis City. Mr. Folk has fearlessly prosecuted all crim inals, poor or rich, influential or other wise, and has done more for the cleansing of tho body politic than has ever been done by any one man in the history of tho State. We recognise in boodling, bribe giving, bribe taking, and other crimes of a similar nature the greatest menace to our free Instl tutlons. We greatly deplore the prev alence of those crimes in St. Louis and Jefferson City, and more especially in our State Legislature; yet we real lie that in Mr. Folk's work, and In the encouragement thereof, lies the rem edy for the evils above enumerated. And whereas, Joseph W. Folk,- by his unswerving devotion to duty and his splendid abilities, has demonstrated to the rank and file of the Democracy of Missouri that he is the most avail able candidate for Governor of this great State, and that in that higher and more responsible position he will be enabled to complete the great work he has so well begun. Therefore, we, the undersigned dem ocrats of Versailles and Morgan county, hereby extend an earnest Invitation to all democrats of this County to meet with us in the Circuit Court room lu Versailles, on Monday night, August 10, 1003, for the purpose of organis ing a Folk Club for the purpose of using all honorable methods and means of securing for Hon. Joseph W. Folk the Domocratla nomination for Gover nor of Missouri in 1904. Club has been formed. No effort thus far Is made to secure names outside the city, but arrangements will be made to Include every precinct iu Morgan County, 'and, If possible, outnumber any Folk Club in the State. P.

Clarence Lumnee, who spent several days last week at Arnholdt's Lake In Camden county, tells of a case of cop perhead snake bite and a'u effective cure that was administered there in his presente. A young rafter in the vielnlty was struck on the leg by a venomous cop perhead snake and the unfortunate vletim came to the home of Kmll Arn holdt an hour after receiving the poi sonous sting, his log having already turned blue and was swollen out of proportion. Mr. Arnholdt ran quickly into tho yard, killed a chicken, split the back open and placed the fowl with the in- trails next to the poisoned skin on the limb and bandaged It tightly. Then Mr. Arnholdt gave the boy whiskey at Intervals, and the effect were soon noticeable. That wan In the mornlag and before evening the victim was eased of all pain and began getting better and before Mr. Lumpoe left was entirely out of danger. The remedy Is very simple and easy to proouro in such eases. Hardy's Prize Baking Powder is the kind to ubc in your baking. Two Oltle.nt ItcHldentn. Two of the oldest residents of Mor gan county, who had been separated for over seventy years, met at the. homo of Frank Guidon, living about five miles south of Versailles, one day last wiiek. Olio is Mrs. Eliza (lolil n aged ill years and tho mother of J. K. Golden, while the other is Mrs. LizzW Music, nged 00 years. These two aged ladles had, until they were 31 years of age, been friends, and were raised near Tuscumbla, Mil ler county, but the families had drifted apart. Tho ieond year of the war, 1HH3, Mrs. Golden left Linn Creek and took up her home In Illinois, hut after a few years came back to Missouri aud has lived In this and adjoining coun ties ever since. Mrs. Music has spent her whole life in Miller tind Morgan counties, two of her daughters beiug the wives of Geo. aud Perry Huff, who live four miles south of Versailles. Their meeting was purely accidental and brought about through neighbors In the vicinity, but after the two had related incidents of their early livos thuy soon found that all details com pared accurately, and for three hours these two old landmarks stood with their feeble hauds on each others shoulder and with tear-staiued clieekj recalled events lu their girlhood which were yet fresh in their memories. It formed a picture for the most famous painter. Tlioro was first joy, then sor iow, then deep and pathetic expres sion lighting up their wrinkled coun tenances yet u happiness mingled with surprise that betokened a re newal of girlish friendship though both realized that their nojourn on earth must be of short duration. They separated In tears, but declared that they would have auother meeting if Providence did not ordain it otherwise. Temporary Postponement. Aiangeinents had been perfected to organize a drove of the Woodman Cir cle la this city last Monday''evuultig nud Mrs. Emily Chancy, deputy organ izer, came here from Fortnna. accom panied by Mesdainos J. P. Schmidt, J. A. Portuoh, Mary A. Poetzol, C. II. Robertson, Misses Stella Snorgrnss, Alice Iicchtel nud Cora Robertson, and S. J. Estill, with the intention of go ing ahead with the work. The organ izers were unable to secure Masonic hall Monday evening aud decided to hold the opening meeting Tuesday, but Mrs. Chaney became quite sick while here and the ladles interested thought best to postpone the organiza tion of the Grove temporarily; another date will be decided upon in the near future.

During the past week developments show that Morgan comity stoekuion are becoming more active than ever bcfoie in making a name for the comi ty, not only by Increasing U'U'r holds, but by securing a high grado of all classes of stock so that lu the future thu attention of buyers will bo at tracted here.

Legeru has also placed on his farm a hcid of lino hogs and intends later on to add n herd of mules to his stock, and expects to make this one of the largest and best tauches In this part of the state. Perry Moore living northeast of Ver sailles this week shipped iu a line lot of steers from Kansas City, which were selected through Marvin Bruce tho stockman iu that city, and which Mr. Moore has turned out on Ills pasture. W. T. Whltllngton of Ciawfords- vllte, Ind., who several mouths ugo purchased the Dr. Wood s ranch and also the old Sllvey farm In this vieln lty, has been here for thu past ten days looking after his harvesting In terests this week received a lot of cat tle which has been transferred to his pastures, while he expects to increase his herd in the near future. Most of these are new entrlos in the stock arena, while there are numerous other stockmen who are changing into liner and better breeds gradually, and who already have some fine stock com ing on. This activity means bukiuetn of a nubstnutlal kind for Morgan coun ty In the future nnd wo aro glad to see ou r farmers and stockmen to nobly coming to tho front in this particular lino of Industry.
