Have you noticed how ork
progressing on Mox Joachimi's
"Castle on th; Rhine," lately? It
all comes from that bill in the legis
lature which was going to compel
Huffman to either get it finished, or
tear it down, and he just swore that
he would be eternally blest if he
would tear it down, after putting in
over tnree years hard work on it.
He says he knew it would not quite
come up to Solomon's temple in mag
nificience, but he expected to put in
the full seven years getting it fin
ished, and now to have to hurry
up and get it finished right
away pretty soon makes him hot,
and it is quite likely he will vote
the Progressive ticket next election,
and live happy ever after.
We could quote many more good
things to eat but lack of space for

business men took up the trade, and
since then it was pretty tough.
How is eating?" asked the bo. Ab
told him it was just starvation and
that he would have been all in if it
hadn't been for a kind hearted (?)
undertaker down the street, who let
him sleep in his shop as watchman,
and that he was going to get away
just as soon as he could. I he bo
gave Ab the grand hailing sign, and
said, "Gosh, I'll hit the gravel," and
away he went. Now, Ab saved his
face, tough as it is, and he saved a
quarter he might have given the bo,
if he had had it, and he got the city
rid of a tramp that might have been
wasting good grub until yet, so we
say he deserves the medal, don't you

al from the city council. Everybody
knows Ab, the undertaker. If you
don't know him alive you probably
will dead, for it is likely the last noise
that will disturb' your rest will be Ab
screwing down the lid of your box,
but he does it so cheerfully you will
have no room to kick. Well, when
Ab is up and out all night, and the
next day with a lot of dusty furniture
to open out and straighten up, and
with a week's beard, he comes pretty
near looking like one of Millionaire
How's St. liuis hoboes, and after
such a deal one day last week, after
starting home, a genuine hobo struck
him, and his salutation was, "I think
I have seen you before, when did you
blow in?" Ab told him he had been
in town two months. "How do you
make a living?" Ab told him he
had got along pretty well mending
old umbrellas until a number of the

marshal, one alderman in east ward,

must make the same known to city
clerk on or before Saturday, March
By order of Board.

The remains of Mrs. Adeline (Er
nest) Cooper, of Joplin, were brought
here Wednesday, funeral services
were held at the M. E. church Wed
nesday afternoon, and interment in
the city cemetery. She was aged
about 70 years, had formerly lived in
this county, was a sister of Squire
Ernest, of Proctor.
J. M. Adams Sells Out.
A. B. Cole & Sons Produce &
Supply Company of California, Mis
souri, has purchased the poultry plants
at Tipton and Versailles, from Mr. J.
M. Adams, of lioonville.
Mr. Adams has been associated
and interested in the poultry buisness
in Tipton and Versailles for over sevj
en years and . during this time has
built up a very large business at these
places, and is retiring from them in
order to give more time to the Boon-
ville territory. A. B. Cole & bons, is
an incorporated company, doing
business under the laws of the state
of Missouri, and owning and operat
ing plants at California, Jefferson
City, and Russellvtlle, and with this
last purchase, is extending its busi
ness into 1 ipton and Versailles.
I'he central plant of this company
is located at iantornia, ana will
co-operate with the other plants. It
will be necessary at certain seasons of
the year to centralize all the poultry
where it can be milk-fed, dressed,
and properly cooled and packed for
the Eastern markets. This will be
done at California where their ice
plant, cold storage and creamery
is located. While at other seasons
each plant will be a carlot shipping
station. With these improved facili
ties for handling and marketing poul
try, butter, eggs, and other produce,
the A. B. Cole company, will be abb
to pay the full market value at all
times. While the trade along the
lines, will doubtless regret losing
Mr. Adams, we do net doubt but
what they will find in thh A. B. Cole
& Sons, worthy successors, who not
only handle, poultry, butter and eggs
but several other products in addition
Mr. Adams, in retiring from these
two points wishes to thank the mer
chants, farmers, and trade in general
for the generous support which has
always been given his business, also
to bespeak for his successors the
same liberal patronage. -California
