He took for his morning text "Inspirations of an Ideal." I This sermon is said to be the i best one preached by Rev. Smith since being in charge of the church. His evening text was: "The Virtue of Faith." He was heard by two large congregations. Special music was rendered by a choir under the direction of J, M. Dunn. Two strangers, who were in Chillicothe Saturday morning entered the Wabash depot at Huntsville Sunday morning at 2:30, bound the operator and locked him in a box car, which was on the track near the depot and placed a charge of nitroglycerine in the safe_and blew the door off and after taking the money and contents of the safe made their escape. The operator managed to make himself heard the crew of a freight train, which pulled into the yards at Huntsville about three o'clock Sunday morning and they released him. Upon entering the depot they found the safe looted. The operator immediately notified Moberly and the nearby towns with a view of apprehending the robbers before they could get far from the scene but up to a late hour Monday afternoon no trace of them had been found. The descriptions given by the operator at Huntsville are exactly the same as ,of the two men who where found in the local yards by an officer Saturday morning and ;iven time to leave the city. The Wabash railroad seems to be an easy mark for "yeggmen." CHICAGO AND RETURN October 13th and 14 the C. M. & St. P. R.

Tne murderer slip t>ed up to a aide door of the aa- ! loon and shot Shields while he had his back to the door. The ball entered the back of his head and he fell to the floor and expired before an ambulance could be summoned. The murder of Shields is a mystery to the police and detective force of Minneapolis. The officers arrived on the scene shortly after the shooting but tnere was little clew to work on and it will be a hard matter to locate the murderer. The body of Shields is expected to arrive in Chillicothe tonight and the funeral will be held from the Shields home Tuesday. Shields was well kaown here having been born and reared in this city. He left here several years ago and went to St. Joseph where he married a young lady at that place.

The Chillicothe Normal is growing at such a rate that President Allen Moore has almost decided to abandon Stanberry where his school building was recently burned, and to concentrate his whole educational force here in Chillicothe. Last week 24 students were added, the previous week 20 and Monday 10 more were enrolled here.- Prof. Cook of Stanberry college has come here to take the chair of grammar and pedagogy and Prof. Maxwell of the same school will, join the faculty here next week, making by far the strongest faculty the Chillicothe formal ever had, DISCUSSETTSOPHY A very large audience attended the Christian church last night to hear an address on "Theosophy," :he first of the series on "Modern 3ults" which Mr. Crutcher is de- ivering at that church. The irief sermon that followed was upon the subject of "Idealism". There was ona addition to the church at the evening service. Folk Well Pleased With The Opening Masting—How It Impressed a Stranger. Governor Folk was well pleased with his Chillicothe meeting Saturday. It was the greatest day Chillicotho has known for many and many a year. Solid lines of vehicles on North and South Washington and Locust streets, on east and west Calhoun, Webster, Jackson and Clay stree.ts with all the feed yarda overrun, made the greatest array of farm- era' conveyances ever seen before at one time in this city. Walter Evans, representing the Kansas City Star, accompanying the Governor, marveled at the blockades of wagons buggies, saddled horses and surreys. When he saw hundreds of people trying vainly to get into the opera house he could not help but compare the great crowd with the indifferent audiences which had greeted all other public speakers, other that Wm. J. Bryan, in Missouri this fall, big and ittle guns alike. Fully two-thirds of the crowd iould not get into the house, which was crowded from dome to bit, with aisles, foyer, stage, gallery landings and wings filled with a solid mass of standing auditors. And they were content to remain standing for two solid hours. The crowd listened between applause with the keenest attention n silent expectancy, so much so chat a whisper could be heard. It ivas the longest speech the Governor ever made" but the crowd never tired. The address all summed up stands on the Democratic state platform of law enforcement as :he oniy issue in Missouri. And the Governor defends this issue with characteristic courage. Some of his enemies started a report that Folk would announce his candidacy for senator here, but the Governor never thought of such a thing, much less making mention of it. Livingston county felt honored ihat the Governor should open his campaign in Chillicothe and showed it appreciations in the most en- husiastic and hospitable style. And the key note hit the spot. A BUM STALL A police court vagrant in Kansas City Saturday gave his homo .8 Chillicothe and his name as Charles Jones. He had stolen a woman's suit case at union sta- ion. He was making a bum stall. The Joneses in and about Chillico;he are prosperous and law abtd- ng. Arid Chillicothe has no vagabonds. ' FRANK WALSHI SPEAKS Frank Walsh, the well known Kansas City attorney, spoke Saturday afternoon in Hamilton and .n the evening at Polo to enthusiastic audiences. Mr. Walsh has no superior on the stump. He advocated law enforcement as the paramount issue not in Missouri only but in the nation. EDITOR WIGGINTOfHERE. Editor J. H. Wigginton,, of the Linneus Bulletin, was in the city Saturday mingling with the big Folk crowd. Mr. Wigginton announced that Bryan would speak from his train at Brookfield Saturday reminding his Chillicothe friends that Livingston county was to be passed up by Col. Bry an this time.

Escorted by Dr. Tiusley Brown and Thomas J. Hoge, Governor folk made a hurried visit to the Industrial Home Saturday after his speech. He inspected the institution with the exception of the Missouri cottage, where the small pox patient is quarantined and was delighted with its con-Utlon and splendid appearance. "DID NOT'ARRIVE.

HOW WE LOOK -AT- PRESCRIPTIONS W E believe that when a per- jr son is sick enough to de- V mand the attention of a physi- ±. cian, his prescription is impor- •> tant enough to demand our most V careful attention to every detail ;;. of its compounding. It is impor- •{• tant enough to be tilled with T the best drugs, and that no oth- 4. er ilmy should be substituted '•{• for any of those indicated by * the doctor. Such prescription 4. work produces the effect the doc- •*• tor sucks. It is the kind of pre- * stription work that you should 4. insist upon having— it is the jj kind vou get here without in- ^ sistinsr. £ -CLARK'S PHARMACY, $ £ HENIJIKTTA BLTLnrXCr £ CII1LLICOTHE, MISSOURI. •? i ?V_ M »t.
