The Federal Treasury Xo Longer Able to Withstand the Continued Gold Withdrawals. Washington, D. C, January 31. The Treasury Department has received the most convincing evidence of the widespread hoarding of gold. The condition already borders on panic. Usually when gold is withdrawn for export the reports to the Treasury show that it has been taken out by a few persons. Several millions might be withdrawn and the returns to the Treasury would show only three or four firms acting. But within a week the reports to the Treasury have un dergone great change. Yesterday's withdrawals made a list of names which would fill a half a col' nn in a newspaper. The sums tak'-i. "anged as low as $10,000. There was no uni formity about the amounts, and few were large. It was evident at a glance that capitalists with ready money were rushing to...

That the South line of Missouri is not a straight East and West lino is owing to the influence and determina tion of one man. The original bill for the admission of the State of Missouri into the Union provided a straight line on parallel 300 30o North Latitude. By this line, however, the old Spanish settlement, ''Little Prairie." located near the present town of Caruthers ville. in the county of Pemiscot, would have been left out of the new state and attached to the territory of Arkansas.

THE. DEMOCRAT. . B. II. ADAMS. Publisher. -.' '. . CAPE GIRARDEAU. MISSOURI. THE BERTILLON SYSTEM. It Saved in Innorent Man From Several Years' Imprisonment. When Sir Richard Webster went with 6ir Charles Ru; sell (as he then was) to see 51. Hcrtillon's system of identify ing criminals, in operation in Paris, the great importance of the system to Sir Richard's mind, as he informed the home secretary's committee, was its possession of many remarkable safe guards against the confusion of the Innocent with the guilty. The English modification of the Bertillon system has only just been adopted, and already a curious illustration of Sir Richard's view has come to our knowl edge. The first fruits of the En glish anthropometrical methods have been the release of an innocent man. Some time back a Windsor jeweler was victimized under particularly daring circumstances. A man wearing the Eton cap and gown, and professing to be a master from the college, called to select a watch for presentatio...
