Martin ZIMPFER and two other men of Antonia let Fred. VOLLMAR’S team run away with them one day last week. The men were spilled out and pretty badly banged up; the buggy wrecked, and the horses damaged some. We presume the men were too top-heavy at the time.
The will of Mrs. Cynthia DONNELL, deceased, gives $1000 to her brother, Hardy McCORMACK; $1000 each to Robert Sydney and Charles ENGLAND; minor children of Ross ENGLAND, DECEASED, and the balance of her estate, real and personal, to her cousin John L. McMULLIN.
Overseer DERR wants to finish opening of the new road from RYAN’S to CARREY’S next Monday, and he does not want to lose a day in notifying hands. He asks the petitioners to meet him Monday morning, without fail, and assist in completing the work. They should not fail in this, or wait for further notice.
Dr. MOCKBEE was called last Monday to sew on a foot for Otis TREFTS. Mr. TREFTS, while chopping wood, accidentally stuck his axe into his left leg just above the ankle, and came near cutting his foot off. The bone is cut and split in such a way that it may result seriously.

A man was found Tuesday morning on the Bonne Terre railroad, near the German settlement, who had been murdered. He had been working on the road, and is supposed to have been murdered by a comrade who had been with him to Bonne Terre to get paid for work. An inquest was held by some one, unauthorized by the Coroner.
We were reminded last Monday evening of the fact that we are growing old. While sitting quietly reading the paper, the house was suddenly invaded by about thirty young folks, apparently determined on having a good time, and we were informed that Miss Florence (our No. 3) had just passed the 19 mile post, and the assembly was in honor of that occasion. All appeared to enjoy themselves.

Mr. J.M. BAILEY has leased out his farm and is disposing of his stock. He still has two sheep left. He says one of them is a little buck that weighs, when fat, about 128 pounds, that he would as soon get rid of as not, and he offers to shear him against any other buck in the county, the man who shears the largest fleece to take both sheep. This banter is more particularly aimed at Dr. BOOTH and W.H. PLASS.

George B. MORSE, one of the young men who is ready at any and all times to be of some service, can be found at this place. If you don’t believe he is at your service, just bring some hounds and say, “George, let’s have a fox chase.” If he don’t go, you bet he is sick with something worse than la grippa. He has some fine dogs and likes to run them.
There is considerable sickness in this community.

Miss Belle BULLOCK of DeSoto, just returned home, after paying a visit to her grandfather STEVENS of this place.
Some days we have plenty of mud, then a blizzard, and then rain and mud. Such is the present climate of this section.
Henry VIVRETT has two very sick children; also two of Mrs. HARNESS’S sons are very sick. Pneumonia appears to be the prevailing complaint.
Col. MORSE’S miners report a find of a very rich quantity of iron ore. Between lead, zinc, and copper, there ought to be a boom in this section.
Miss Jennie PERKINS, night operator at this place, is sick with the mumps, but is improving. Her position is being filled by Miss Maggie OWENS of Marquand.

Our roads are impassable, therefore business is dragging.
The health of our people is improving with the exception of Mrs. SRONCE, who is very sick.
Our blacksmith seems to be overburdened with work, and the merchants are tired or something else.
Colby HAMMOND, one of our neighbors, contemplates moving soon. We are sorry to lose him. He has our best wishes wherever he goes.
Mr. ARNOLD, formerly druggist at this place, is here on the lookout for a situation, and to recruit his health. He is very low with consumption.
Our friend, Pat KAVANAUGH, is improving fast. He should have known better than try to beat a Republican. Rub your horse good till 1892, and try him again.
Our old neighbor, Isom DODSON, has moved back to his farm near here. We are glad to have Isom back among us. We need more workers for Christ and morality.
Our cooperative store seems to be dragging the little fish. They are getting their eyes open and can tell a shark from a pickerel. That is right boys. A man is a man if he has but $10 in his pocket, just the same as the man with $100 – except in politics.
George H. SHIELDS has sold his farm near here, known as the BUREN farm, for $5500. That does not look like land is depreciating in value. Good land is good property and will be hard to purchase in this county in a few years.

An accident happened at the factory this morning, the damage done, though, is only pecuniary. Two benches in the polishing department broke down, carrying with them whatever was on it. While the company’s loss is considerable, the men only lost their labor and are forced to a drawback while the benches are being replaced.
