Advertising does pay, especially if done in the proper paper. Last Thursday we printed a little "ad" conveying the news that Lucas BAUER had lost a filly. He had spent many days of hard riding, as well as some means, but could learn nothing of his filly, and his brother suggested that he send a notice to us. The result was that on Friday he came out to G. E. MARSDEN'S and got
his lost property. Still some business men claim that advertising does not pay.

MR. James McDANIEL had a social time at his house, last Sunday, and MR. John HOLF was present and took the liberty to pop the question to Miss Sophia PLATZ, but the young lady refused. I suppose he can stand it for he is still threshing.

The picnic, last Friday, near
of the picnic was an unprovoked assault, after dark, made upon one of Allen HUSKEY's sons by young lads of the vicinity of Victoria and Bailey's. HUSKEY was struck in the face with fists and also received a murderous blow with a club. A warrant was issued for Lundy VINYARD, and a son of Andy WHITEHEAD, and a boy named PORTER. The two first named have been arrested, but the latter has not been found. Squire BOOTH has set the trial for next Friday, and we hope the right party will be punished.

John P.NOLEN killed the largest rattlesnake I heard of yet, near Jake BECKER's Black Smith Shop; it was five feet, seven inches long and three inches in diameter, and had seventeen rattles and a button. That is pretty good for the Constable of Rock Township; if he kills another rattler of that size he should be promoted to High Sheriff.

Our musical talent is constantly enlarging. In addition to three military bands now existing, two others are in course of organization. Our Creole friends are today organizing an orchestra, and to that end, they have received valuable talent from Ste. Genevieve, in the person of Leon LABRAYERE, an old pupil of mine. Another military band will soon be "marching through" Tanglefoot, with stately step and harmonious strains. If I can, I will march with them and surprise our people.
Fritz AUBERLE is one, and Charlie GRAY is another, and unfortunately, each has a head of his own, and a stubborn one, too. Charlie and Fritz are neighbors, but Charlie don't like Fritz, and Fritz don't like Charlie "und dat isch wat all dimes makes druvel." But Fritz says that Charlie has some bad boys, and Fritz some times treats them as the Jews served St. Stephens. Fritz thinks he owns the Rocky Mountains, and has a right to use his property freely on the bad boys, but Mayor ADAMS don't think so and makes Fritzes, as well as Franzes and Charlies, reach down their pockets and pull out some dimes instead of half dimes, and "dat isch yust wat isch de matter mid dem."
