43tf A Drummer Beaten. 1 W. A. Martin, a groceiy drummer, who lives in Parsons is a genial sharp shrewd fellow and known to all the trade in this section as such. One day recently he was making a trip on the cars and to while away the time he tumbled a Democratic drummer around pretty savagely by his sledge hammer arguments.

The drummer stood it as long as possible then changed seats. On the next seat Martin was an Irishman who pitched in and made the bold assertion that Cleveland had done more good for this country than ail the Republican presidents the countr)-had ever had. Well.said Martin, we'll argue this question and he proceeded to hiumenite, a big lot of bad things tbt.avelandl man agreed witu mm i- lie tnen asKea Pat to tell what Cleveland done tBat was such a great benefit. Pat sraiied arid said, "Wy he broke up, the Dimmycratie party." Martin agreed with liial and felt that the Irishman was a' "boss" on him. The Colonels.

'Some fellow-in the Daily "Advocate of date 4th jumps into? some fellow on the east side of, tile square in Columbus for making Buch a free use of the word "colonel." In 1891 we attended a meeting of the Editorial Association of Southeast Missouri at Lebanon. That komic karacter, J. West Goodwin, at that time president of the State Editorial Association of Missouri, and editor of the Sedalia Bazoo, was present, and this is the way J. West explained the "colonel" business in Missouri: He said, during the war a man who commanded even a small column had the rank of colonel, and every editor in Missouri who had charge of the columns of a newspaper was entitled to the rank of colonel, and by the power vested in him he would confer that rank to every editor in, Missouri. The Advocate correspondent Bhould remember that Cherokee county is not very far from Missouri and in all probability some of the newspaper ranks of "colonel" have concluded to go west and grow up with the country.

So Mr. correspondent, let up. The fellows who could not be even a corporal in the army are now full fledged "colonels." pied. 1 Leander Riley was born April 20, 1833, died at his home in the west part of Weir May 6, 1896, aged 63 years and 16 days.
