Tiie first )ai)er published in the county,
we believe, was the Tillies, at Oxford,
by Mugibrd & Hughes. Within a few
weeks from the first issue of the Time,
a paper was started at i'.elle riaine,ca!l
ed the Herald, by William Nixon, a
spieudid )t inter, and present Eegister
of Deeds of this countv. These papers, i
however, flourished but a short tnnoj
when they gave way to ot.ier enter- j
nrises. The next ljaiier started was the 1
Uxfi.nl Press, which proved to be the
mo-t successful ot all. its proprietors,
Folks & Ludlow, by skillful manage- i
meat and rigid economy, succeeded in
publishing it for one year at that place,
and at the expiration of that time, the'
removed their paper to tho more flour- i
ishing town of Wellington, where it is
now published under the name of the
Sumner Cointhj Press, by Folks & Pish
op, Mr Ludlow having, about a year
since, sold his interest to the his.1 mimed
gentleman. The 1'ress now has a new
dress of body type, and its appearance
is verv much improved. It

they will be justified in doing so, we
have no doubt. They are both live, j
energetic newspaper men. and no fears ;
are now entertained of the Pres.-; ever :

this, and many other counties in this
State, have done.
In the fall of 187:?, a gentleman by
tiie name of C. P. Carland. and, if we
mistake not, formerly a resident of your

During the month of August, 7.., Mr.

and, bv the way, a splendid newspaper

Mr. iiadloy sold the Enterprise to Lud

publication until June of the same year, !
when, from a lack of patronage, they I
were compelled to suspend.

Mn. Editoi:: Thinking perhaps
a few items might not be unaccepta
ble in your paper, though outside of
Andrew county, L pen the following:
Thur.-day. February 2S. found me
in this pleasant little town. This
j ilourHiing place is well known to
jie t ravelin" public as he terminus
0r lho Kansas City, St. Joseph &
f:oimdl JHll, Kaih-oad. All local
I ft-ci-rhts are trausfered at this noint
! to t he Jlurlington tt Chicago Railroad,
, pmith, one wagon, ami three carpen-
ter snops. Also, one furniture and
undertaker establishment, two houses
for agricultural implements, two
hardware, five dry goods, one gro
cery and provision and three drug,
stores. About the centre of the town
is the depot, and a few rods above is
the Round J louse and turn-table.
Additionally, we iind two livery
stables, one lumber yard, one grain
("levator, one school liouso in graded
departments and two stories high. one
bank, and one church-house, (M. K.)
There are several benevolent societies
and two religious societies Metho
dist Episcopal and Presbyterian. The
latter worship in a hall fitted up for
the purpose. Each have flourishing
Sabbath schools. I might iurtiier
mention two resident ministers, four
phy.-icians and t wo lawyers.
Some fifty buildings have been put
up during the past year hard as tho
times are said to be and
tiie business of the place has increased
two-fold, indeed, its future to all
appearances, is one of prosperity.
The people, for the mot part, are
intelligent, and possess a good deal
of energy and go-aheailativencs.
They propose lo .-tart a new paper;
and the building, now m course of
creel ion, will soon be rea'ty to re
ceive the press and priming material.
In the inidi-t of all ihi- activity, the
minds of the people have been sud
denly aroused to think on nobler
things. A revival of religion is now
j prevailing in the Methodist church.
and the nouse is mihlly crowded
byaltciifive and anxious hearers.
Several have been converted. I have
seldom witne.-.-ed a more pleasing
sight, than a class of voting men from
eighteen to thirty years of age, at
the altar of prayer. "lint till ages and
both sexes are becoming more and
more interested, and the revival bids
iair to sweep the whole town.

Mn. Editoi:: Considerable busi
ness of a legal nature has tranpircd
in our little village within the nasc
two days. Some three weeks since
we wrote you of some parties being
arrested, and of on j of them leaving
before the trial. Lat Friday he came
into town, and our efficient Constable
re-arrested him, and in the evening
he was tried by a jury ot six men,
whose verdict was, guilty, and a Una
of six dollars and costs was assessed,
amounting to l!5,7". The party gave
notice that he should appeal to tho
higher court and gave the required
bond. So another case wiil lie added
to our Circuit Court Docket, and
more fees vill have to bo paid. It is
a good business for lawvers. but very
poor for those who have them to pay.
ut the law should be enforced, ami
those who violate tlicm should be
made to know that violation mill b
JoUoiccdby a penally, and that penalty
should be as certain as the cause wro-
j ducing it.
L'iiose persons who come
into our town and partake of (he wa
ter out of the Public well, and be
come excited so that ihoy must light,
swear, abuse peaceable citizens, and
in various ways abu.-e and disturb the
peace and quiet of the neighborhood,
should be made lo know that, such
conduct will not be tolerated, ami
that the order loving citizens of Fill
more will not submit to such disturb
ance without making an i U'ort to
stop it. Y"e believe our Chairman of
Trustees is. if such a thing is possi
ble, loo much inclined to the ile of
mercy: that if he would work the.
machine at a little higher gauge, and
increase thopresure a little, it would
be better for all concerned.
Iut tins is only one of the legal af
fairs of our town. Last Monday even
ing the Chairman oi the Lyceum
thought there was too much noise
and disturbance in the house, and tho
consequence was. that four young;
men were arrested. After a some
what lengthy trial, however, they
Were acquitted. More anon.
