Charges aud Counter Charge*. ' Charges and counter charges are 'being made. The article goes on to say that W. A. Slartzeman,a former clerk in the Head. Office, who was let out by C. W. Hawes, makes an affidavit that orders for seals, etc., for the Royal Neighbors were billed to and paid for out of the funds of the Modern Wood men. ; He says, also, that a Royal Neighbor clerk.^Jis kept on^the M._W.

He says the $40,000 matter is now in lit! gation; that no .'Woodmen money has ever been paid to the Royal Neighbors and that the printing and express af fairs will, be .found straight. Mr. Hawes claims to have been ostracised in Fulton society. He and his clerks are Vturned down'' upon every occa aion. : He claims that the Woodmen offices have made the Fulton postoffice a second class office, and now that their patronage has been taken will be relagated to third class. A general boycot Is on.aays he, and it is likely that the ax, the Woodmen emblem, will be brought into active play before the question of location is settled. MONEY ISN'T NEEDED A Bright Writer fllve* Away Secrets of fUe Trade ot Country KUltor*. An Ohio contemporary remarked re? cently that it took 'money to run a newspaper, and the editor of the Saguache i (Col.)

The newapaper is the child of the air, a creature of a dream. It can go on and on and on, when any other concern would be in the hands of a receiver and .wound up with cobwebs In the window.
