also lucky. He has been squandering? some of his loose change in the

We understand that Henry BLUMENSTENGEL was very indignant, after his
trial last Saturday, because “Drs. WYNE, MONROE, DEEER?” and others had
testified that he was of unsound mind As an evidence of insanity, Mr.
WYNN cited the fact that BLUMENSTENGLE once ran for Mayor of De Soto.
13 men wanted to work in clay mines, steady work at 1.25 to 1.40 per
day. Also one or two men with small families. Address, L. MANDLE,
We have just learned that Thomas BLAKE?, who formerly resided in this
county, is in jail in St. Louis, charged with murdering and robbing a
man in Washington county, and that the evidence is quite strong against
him. He is under indictment at Potosi, but kept in St. Louis as a more

We see no good reason why Hillsboro should not have a ????ing ??? and
creamery too. There is a big ????? country surrounding the county seat,
which is a ????? adapted to wheat calsing? and for meadow purposes it
can not be beaten anywhere. Capital, too, is plentiful, and it is about
time that our people do something for their home place instead of
investing all their savings in adjacent cities or towns. Charity should
begin at home.
‘Tis strange, ladies will go on month after month suffering from some
female disorder, which one bottle of Dr. DROMGOOLE’s Female Bitters
would speedily correct.
From a private letter we learn that Mrs. John HOLMES?, late of this
county, has been very sick in St. Louis, where she resides at present,
and that she is now recovering. Miss Jennie is in Texas, where she is
establishing a good reputation as teacher. Baren? is in ?ried and also
follows teaching; Duane is in business and doing very well.
During the remainder of this season Capt? W. H. WASHBURN will keep his
horse, tow day in each week, at LEPP’s old stand, near COLE’s mill.
Please take service.
Parties contributing society ???? to this paper will please be careful
in writing names, both of persons and things, especially in giving
descriptions of dresses. There is nobody connected with this office,
who could tell the difference between a lady dressed in the height of
fashion and one not dressed at all, and as in the names and styles of
dresses we are equally ignorant.

Louis OGLE and William WEBER unite in a letter of thanks to Judge
DINNING, the jury and their attorney, Joseph J. WILLIAMS, for the
manner of trial and verdict in the case against OGLE, which was before
the Circuit court last week, and in which the defendant was acquitted.
The case came up on an appeal from ‘Squire ZOLLMAN, where OGLE was out
one dollar. This mention will be sufficient.

Conductor Johnny NELSON?, who was recently shot in the hand, was in
town Tuesday, on a visit to relations and looking after his landed
interests here. Mr. BOHMLE?, who was also shot by a tramp about the
same time, is reported on being out of danger. Mr NELSON talks of this
town as a good place to start a creamery, and as Johnny has a fine farm
near here, his talk will amount to something.
F. HACKE, of De Soto, is making a speciality in the manufactur of farm
wagons, which he sells at St. Louis prices. They are the best and
lightest running wagons extant. Go see them and examine work and
prices, and patronize a home institution. Every wagon guaranteed to
