THE POST OFFICE FIGHT , The post office contest still seems to ' be sizzling along. The claim Is now being made that Mr. Elvins has not indorsed. any one for the office yet, he prefering to hear from the rank and file of his party in Madison county. It is a well known fact that Polite is divilish sly and the chances are that he Is going to wait until he hears something drop before he-makes a move. Certain It is that strong presure is being brought to bear upon him on all sides It Is said that he has heard from the Grand r Army contingent . In no uncertain way. It also goes that the Grand Army boys ore pulling for Mr. .Albert- ii. -r u a 1. 1. ta -puir pas not 1 yet developed. But we want to say right jjero that the . man that knocks the persimmon before E.

Was the subject of Dr. -McClarys lecture at the lyric on last Saturday night which was the third number of the J .yceum course. The doctor la one of the b-st platform orators on the stage. to-day; his bright, ready wit interspersed with pathos the complete control he has of his facial expression, hie clear and perfect enunciation his word painting and his graceful carriage on the platform, made the evening with him a delightful one. It would have been a hard matter for the batchelor boys to have secured a better attraction than Dr. McClary. On Sunday morning and evening th doctor occupied the pulpit at the Baptist church.

The War Office of Great Britan has received reports from the military patrol in the remote parts of the Nigerian province of Muri, on the Upper Benue a tributary of the River Niger which indicate the discovery of the lowest type of human nelngs that ever existed. The operations of the patrol were undertaken for the purpose of establishing effective administration over territory so little known that in many cases the villages visited had never before been seen by a white man. Tbe relations between the Government and the Wurkum people the tribe chiefly ' concerned had never been friendly and the three expeditions previously sent against them having had do satisfactory results, a fresh force was sent Into the country in consequence of attacksjun-ny bringing the Wurkum under control. The people are described as being of the lowest type, every village being cannibal.- 'Worship consists of the worst form of. fetish. In most cases the entire population is naked. The religious beliefs of these pagans are Interesting. They believe in the transmigration of souls, & man being in their view reborn by' tbe same mother after death. . An evil mans soul becomes a witch whose fate is death by. burning, 'in some cases the people .worship a deity, who at their religious . celebrations is represented as armed . with a long horn, which he blows , at Intervals. Sometimes this deity is fully clothed, "on other occasions he is naked. One of the pagan deities kills . all women who see him. -At a place called Bashlma was seen an Iron spear placed in the ground at a spot held In great reverence and worshipped by the people at nighL In many of the houses were ' fount wooden, Idols, which are not objects of worship In themselves, but are, as a rule. Images of departed pagans. The farce started from Gateri, on ihe borders of the Bauchi and Muri provinces, some thirty miles north of the Benue, and marched In a southeast direction over entirely new country of which nothing was known except the extremly bad character of the people. The first places visited are described as shocking, the inhabitants being of the lowesL Their persons were so offensive that even the native poldlers were unable to remain among them. - Some hundreds of these pagans assembled while . the political officer . explained to them the wishes of the Government As the patrol proceeded they found the Inhabitants all working In their fields fully armed with spears and shields. A large meeting of the people was called, and it was decided not to agree to the terms proposed: by the : Brills! as ' punishment . for the killing and eating of seven men. On the 1 expiration of - twenty-four hours grace the , force marched into the town which was cleared after considerable opposition. Two counter attacks were beaten off. the leading man being ahot at eight paces. During tbe fighting, in which the pagans lost forty killed and ' twenty wounded, native, sergeant Who was In . charge of one of the sections displayed can-plcious gallantry. ' Owing to these operations -the people . became quite friendly, and It la not ..anticipated, that they will -further trouble. . ; ? WILL filed; Will of. Henry Ward, Deceased, Filed ; For Probate , ' The last will of Henry. W. Ward, was filed for probate this . week.. Tbe v rill is dated October- 4, 1906 and is wltineased by Ey C. Rockwell and Robert A. Anthony. He appoints as -ex ecutors ' of - his ' will, his wife Gala Ward and his son-in-law R. H. Davis. After directing that bis debts be raid, he .-'bequeaths to bis daughter Ada Davis, Octa Gash and Hattie Davis the sum of $1000 each In mone or other property as may be agreed on . between them and the executors Tbe rest of his property of every description, , money, real estate, mixed, sole or partnership be leaves to his wife, Cala Ward to hold and enjoy during her life with full power to manage same as she sees proper and to mortgage sell or dispose of any or all of same absolutely if she desires; at the death of his wife all property remaining In her hands, either of original property, income or increase thereto is to be dirlded equally between his three daughters, if they be living,- or if either one be dead then her share In the estate is given to her children. The executors are to serve without bond. MARKED DOWN. For the few remaining days before Christmas the stock of toys, mechanical and otherwise, have been marked down to a very does figure. Give Menteer a call before buying. The talk of a 1 dark horse to' tbe post office matter In this city was renewed this week . with renewed force. If seems that some kind of a word was received here from the powera that be that a new man had entered the field with the chanoes in favor of his appolntmenL It seems that the present candidates who are in the field each have such a strong following that it Is said that the appointment of either one would hurt tbe chances of success of the Republican party in this county at the next election a a there is a United States Senator to bo elected next year and Warner la after the plum and he Is afraid that If any of the present candidates for the poetoffice are appointed his chances' for re-election would go glimmering, hence It bt said he has had a hand in the selection of a compromise candidate for this office, ic is alleged that the candidate selected by Mr. Warner will not be opposed by Mr. Elvina and while he will not come out openly and indorae the compromise man be will not put forth an special effort to prevent his appointment. Sir. Elvins, you know, is a pretty smooth article himself, and he desires to go back to congress, therefore he wants harmony with a big-II, if It will re-elect Elvins. It was also whispered about Tuesday that the compromise candidate had not consented to the use of his name, but it Is very likely he will bow to "the will of the people.

Senator Clay of Georgia, In a speech delivered In the Senate last May when the tralff schedules were being considered,, said: Tho American people - consume eighty one pounds of sugar per capita. Two-thirds of all used comes from foreign countries. The average price for 1908 in Hamburg was 2.64 cents and in New York 4.96 cts. This difference aggregates $136,080.00 a pear. The government gets only $53.-000,000, In customs duties on sugar, leaving $83,000,000 most of which goes to the sugar trust. The American people have paid taxes on an average of $50,000,000 per year during the last twelve years on sugar, amounting to fully $600,000,-000. Tbe American consumers of sugar have paid to tho American Sugar Refining company, commonly called the sugar trust, at least $55,000,000 per year in profits, amoun ing in twelve years to $660,000,000. The American peopl eare not a-wore of the fact that it tho sugar we import c&me Into this country free of any duty, both raw and refined, the cost of sugar to the American consumer would be reduced nearly one-half. . This is the concern for whose rpeclal benefit the Republican party, placed a protective tariff on raw slid refined sugars. It is also the same thieving concern that has been manufacturing criminals out of our custom house officials by bribing thei to make fraudlent Inspections and toll weights of tbe raw sugars it ' ; Imports for its refineries, and robbing tho government of $30,000,000, or more of the custom revenues. This and the Standard 'TJyTvJii .CIS "5 , i iMJiVU of trade. are tbe sort of concerns ' to which ths Republican party grants special privileges to levy tribute on American citizens. And tbe average Republican voter pays his sugar and oil tribute to these licensed robbers without a protest for the sake of party solidarity, as President Taft put It' Inr liia Winona speech. s ST. LOUIS BREAD Manewal Bread Company For Sale at THE AVENUE. THE USE OF LIME ON MISSOURI SOIL. The experiments which are being conducted by the State Experliaeitt Station o nth various soils of Missouri have shosu that In certain parts of the State, lime can be used i ilh profit. Fortunately most of the soils of North Missouri and a great deal of those la South Missouri need no lime as . yet. but the level praries wblch are Inclined to be wet, both in Northeast Missouri and Southwest Missouri, have been shown to respond well to its application. There are also considerable areas of the Ozark upland where the lime supply 1m low and where lime can be used with good returns. As a rule. It can be said that where . red clover grows luxuriantly, lime Is not needed although the failure of clover may not be due to lack of lime. . A sol ltbat is wet, or one that lacks humus or phosphates usually tolls to grow clover satisfactorily even when considerable lime Is pres enL . The cheapest form of lime to apply Is tho ground . limestone which may now be secured of two ar three firms in Missouri at about 81.00 per ton In car lots at the crusher. . It should be applied at the rate of 2000 to 4000 lbs. per acre after the land Is broken for a crop such as corn, allowing the' after preparation of the seed bed to thoroughly work it into tho soil. It should not be plowed under. . In a nezperimental way, air slack-: ed lime or water slacked lkne may be used but this is usually too expensive to use in a large way. Lime is best applied with a apodal , lime scatterer a number of which are now on .the market. The ground limestone may . be scattered with fair success with an endgate seeder on a quiet day. There are no drills that will sow It heavy enough without going over hthe land several times. . "! (T- . ( ii
