He was taken in charge and cured for by kind citix.ens hero who telegraphed to his grandfather with whom the boy had been staying, and from whom he had ran away. He did not know what he loft homo for unless it was because the other fellows wanted him to, neither could he tell where they intended to go. One thing was sure, however, he wanted to get back home. His experience thus far was enough to discourage him from bumming it any more. The other fellows went on and may find time to repent of their folly in tho near future. Young Merritt says he will never run away from home again. Ed. Adams has returned from his visit in Clay county. Representative S. S. Sessions was in town Monday and Tuesday.

The MonJ itof man was in receipt of a small cfato,- for which we extend thanks because of the absence of a bill (except a TO-cent Express bill) but these were a little betted than some others sent here. We saw ft few crates sent to Schnlts & Smith that were very Inferior and exceedingly scrawny, its a disgrace to any country to send out stich stuff, ftow thot may false passibly decent fruit down there, and they have a little warmer climate in the wlnter ( but when it comes to comparing Missouri with Iowa as ah all-round state, she simply isn't in it. Her past and present record don't begin to come up with ours. The man who disposes of Iowa land now and goes to Missouri will some day regret it. The Farms Ate Going, Wesley Reporter: Thos.
