The driver was too much for the animal. Before it w7as quieted, however, a broken shaft could be produced to show up for da mages. How the Opoiis Ladies Routed ;i Joim . Some two or three weeks since some parties visited the little town of Opoiis and after looking around a little concluded to rent a room and start up in business. Not much time was lost in finding a location and after paying a dollar in advanee on the rent they started for Minden for the purpose of laying in a fresh stock of spring goods. It appears that the man having the room for rent had a daughter, a member of the W. C. T. U. He wisely informed tne daughter that when the gentleman paid her four dollars more for rent she could give them the keys. But she thinking perhaps there might be something wrong, called the other ladies and awaited the arrival of the parties with their goods. They had not long to wait, and when the first load arrived they found that they had not judged unwisely. The gentleman of course came and asked for the keys to his room, but the ladies handed him his dollar and kindly told him they could not rent a room in Opoiis for the purpose that they wished it for. The gentleman most politely refused to take the dollar saying "he would donate that to them as they had been to quite a bit of trouble," and quietly drove away. Now dear friends, this is what earnest, brave hearted Christian temperance ladif s can do. Why not take them for an example? W. C. T. U. Press Supt. Equal to Auj Novel. A rather peculiar ending of a practical joke commenced about fourteen months ago, took place this forenoon. V. K.Brown and W. S. Stanners were working on the foundation of Robert Robyn's house a little over a year ago, and one day for a joke Brown took Stanners watch out of his vest which was laying near by and secreted it in the wall of the cellar. As soon as Stanners missed his time piece he got very wrathy and put the police after it, but without any success in finding the stolen property. Stanners became so earnest that Brown was alarmed and concluded to wait a tew days when he would return it. In the meantime Brown went to Joplin with the intention of getting the watch when he returned, but when he was there got into trouble and went to Carthage to board at the county's expenre for six months. During his incarceration he attacked another prisoner and as a result received another jai! sentence which terminated d ly before yesterday, and last even-in? he arrived in the city, went to the Robyn residence and under the pretense of going into the cellar af ter some tools he had left there he went to where he had hid the watch, found it, and then hunted Stanners up this morning and turned it over to him, accompanied with an explana tion. Not as l.;il as Reported. A gentleman living in Neosho who has had considerable experience in the raising and cultivation of apples, peaches and small fruits, having occasion to travel over a large portion of the county during the last week made it his business to examine many orchards and fields and makes the following report: Apples, not hurt very bad, few buds killed, and prospects good for a fair crop: notwithstanding reports to the contrary there will be a few peaches in the country; cherries all right. The wheat crop is not hurt except in the rare instances where it was very far advanced and of rank growth. Arcadia Election. An even 200 votes were polled in Arcadia Monday, E. M. Brewer being elected mayor by majority. C. F. Coburn was chosen police judge, and G. W. Fowler, D. C. Pasley, J. Cox, councilman. THE CITY ELECTION. Sweeping Victory t'arty Over n I for the Republican 1 ihe Tickets. The city election yesterday passed off smoothly and the result was almost a sweeping victory for the republicans. It was a four-cornered fight, the Populists, Independents and Prohibitionists arrayed against a straight out Republican ticket. B. D. Bennett, candidate for Councilman in the First ward, on the Independent Citizens ticket was the only one off of the Republican ticket that was elected, by a majority over the republican candidate of 95, and a plurality of 44. This is accounted for from the fact that he is a very popular man in his ward among all alike irrespective of politics. The contest in the office of Treasurer of the school board was interesting, but Robert Robyn, Republican, won the day by a good round majority. The majorities and pluralities in all the wards are rather of a surprise to al! but the republicans, they knowing about what the result would be. The ladies turned out in a very satisfactory manner to exercise their rights of franchise, and quite a number of them voted for prohibition, which accounts in a great measure for the increase of that vote. The Populists did not make near the showing they had hoped nor did tiiey equal what they have polled heretofore. The Citizens ticket was made up principally of democrats and dissatisfied republicans and was a good ticket to draw from the dissatisfied in all parties, but did not seem to have the staying qualities essential to carry it through and out of the way of the Republican ticket. The council now stands one Populist, two Democrats, and the balance Republicans. On summing up of the whole it is plainly seen that the Republicans are still in the ring better organized if any thing than they have been for years, and the result of yesterday's election is only in line judging from the Associated Press reports with that in all parts of the Union. The following is the vote by wards: FIRST WARD. TREASURER OF SCHOOL BOARD. Robert Robyn, Rep 11 Geo. W. Williams, Indep 64 L. L. Hollinger, Prob 46 MEMBER OF CITY COUNCIL. B. D.

Three or four miners and a colored fellow became mixed up together last evening and were only separated by the appearance of the police upon the scene and marching the darkey and one of the miners off to jail and then up before Judge Lance, where they were given an oportunity to teli their little tale of woe. The colored gentlemen's talk impressed the judge to such an extent that he was released, but the miner was held upon a charge of disturbing the peace and fined 87.50. It seems that the miners, four in number, one of them considerably under the influence of conversational water, were meandering Broadway when they came across the darkey standing in front of the Sal vation army barracks, calmly smok ing a pipe, i he one who was "lull " walked up to h'm and cooly pulled the pipe out of the darkey's mouth with the remark "give me my pipe." The owner of the pipe prostested, when the miner handed it back to him, but while in the act of doing this was hit by the darkey. Another miner then struck the darkey a Jim Corbett blow on the neck which landed him quite a distance from where he was standing in a horizontal position. An attempt was made by the dark y to draw a razor from 155 49 40 - SMITH & MILLER.
