Tho forty acres on which this famous .mlncrai spring is located, was last week sold for $3,000 to Messrs. Crawly 111 os., of Savannah, Missouri. Wo un derstand It Is tho Intention of the new proprietors, to tuako extensive Im provements and convert (ho springs Into a placo of general public resort. Wo arc also Informed that ono of tho proprietors has had several years ex perience in conducting a similar Insti tution in California, Wo liavo no doubt, that with proper Investment ol capital, tho sprlugs can bo inado very remunerative to the proprietors.

The Lincoln, Nebraska, .bunm states -that tanners In that vicinity concur in tho opinion that grasshoppers cannot very well deposit their eggs on raw pralrlo. They always seek a hard, baro surface, llko a road track or new break ing; They make a hole from an Inch to Jtwo Inches In depth and leavo a cluster of eggs In tho bottom of It. If thlsj hole gets tilled up, as would bo likely to be tho case on old plowed ground, the newly-born hopper cannot dig his way to tho surface, but dies. Hence tho In stinct that'sccks a hard, Impacted sur face, whero tho Httlo perforations will remain till spring. This being true, It will bo seen that deep plowing will ctfectually destroy tho brood. Tho eggs can stand nny amount or rain and frost. Hut the young grasshopper Is not a burrower, and If ho is covered with two or three luulioa ot dirt, ho.must finish his briof exlsteneo without air or motion. Tho few that would survive tho plowing, by remaining on top of tho ground, might Do easily destroyed with a Httlo atten tion after hatching. omc to tho lair, that Is tho place to jflnd your old acquaintances ; they will ,bo there. m ,TU.1T JU.1SS .1IEETIJVG.

Tho progress of .tho meeting showed that tho slinplo .appointing of delegates to tho 2nd of fieptember convention was considered by tho chief managers of tho meeting a secondary consideration. Attorney John W. Stokes, of Craig, and Lieut. Charles K. Humes, oi Mound City, were tho leading spirits of tho meeting and wcro running It to suit themselves. They wcro on tho floor most all tho JJrnu, endeavoring to ludoctrlnato tho ittudlenco with their peculiar vlows on jfP, and national politics. They went so far as to doclaro that the Woodson administration was tho best tho state had ever had, and they didn't intend that anything should bo said by this meeting against It.

Sn-akk Hollow. Andukw ) Countv, Mo Aug. 17, 1H7U, S LtnToit Skntikki.! Jkar Sir: It has been a long time since you havo beard from our oiico famous but now dry valley, so I will again try to con- tlnuo tho history begun sonio twenty months ago. Wo cannot hear of a slnglo rattlesnako being killed this teason, audit Is thought thalthe strong and commanding volco of our gifted son of tho Kmerald Isle, St. Patrlc, has been the means of us getting rid ol the rattling devils, which are supposed to bo of tho same stock that were hid lu a briar patch several thousand years ago, and, while our grandfather was asleep, gavo such controllng counsel to our grandmother, who willingly took the advice and then prevailed on our grandfather to go and do likewise. Well, wo are glad to get rid of the snakes, but we supposo that tho source of revenue of some of our doctors will be cut short by tho loss of the snakes, for our good christians will not have so many excuses to get medical prcscrlp tlons.although wo are told that sonio of them get more than happy when they go to Savnnnah to pay their taxes, I am told that our esteemed minister contemplates leaving us, but I hope tho brethren will devise some plan to retain him, for tlo good work he has done for us. Ho was tho first minister that camo among us who labored with us for any length of tlmo without giv ing up In despair. It was this servant of Josus Christ, the pcoplo say, who llfted us out of tho miry clay and put our feet on tho "rock of ages." Hut I am sorry to say, some of Ills members wcro so ungrateful as to leavo their church nud Join lu with tho dry land church that was gotten up at tho L'reke Schoolhouse last winter. Hut I hear it whispered that some are longing to re turn again because they havo had to get new hymn-books and because the last named church was moro expensive than tho first ;,lts members moro aris tocratic than tho ono they Joined In their llrst love. Tlicy also say, In their first church they couldpay their minister with bacon, beans, potatoes and stosk Ing yarn, and various other little odds and ends that they would not miss from their well tilled farms. Hut now they say they havo to pay their guides to heaven In greenbacks, and a high prlco too, and for tho Httlo work done on Sundays. They find fault with tho new minister because ho does not study out his sermons, but bullovo that they aro either borrowed or carried around lrom ono circuit to another, and preached ono year on ono circuit and tho next on another. Hut let this bo as it may, I think that tho ministers should spend moro tlmo with their flocks and then they would not looso so many of their six months proba tioners. The grasshoppers that wo read of havo not reached us yet. Hut as the wind Is blowing this way from Kansas, I should not bo surprised If they would yet make their appearance. Uncle Davy and undo Hilly havo not yet Joined tho church, but they both look very solemn nt times, nnd per haps they aro thinking seriously of the matter, but it would bo no use for them to think of Joining tho church now, for the continued drouth has dried up tho water In the Arrapeo, so that they could not bo baptized until next summer, no way. ' Undo Hilly comes to town quite of ten and talks a great deal about his fruit, but wo never sco him havo any apples to sell, so wo think ho cither has not got very many apples or has got too many neighbors to cat them for him. Hut I am told that undo Davy has got ono of tho finest peach orchards In tho county, and that his trees aro well loaded with fruit, and If thai ho the case ho should invito tho preachers over when they get rlpo, and If he docs I should llko to bo a preacher too : at least as long as tho Invitation would last Wo have had a very hot summer so far, so much so that our corn crops aro cut very short, somo will not make flvo bushels per acre, but wo will have a good crop of hazlcnuts and somo other kinds of fruits, such as crab apples and wild cherries with a few walnuts. Wo will pei haps get through tho winter all right, but should wo tall we will report through the Suntinix. Wo aro having somo weddings not withstanding tho hot weather. Flvo of our young men havo led handsomo maidens of Snake Hollow to the hynic ulal altar, although somo wero not from nnclcilt Snako Hollow but from tho ad joining suburbs j nnd several moro are thinking seriously ot matrimony, but havo not the brass to tell their thoughts. And somo havo been disappointed In their expectations, but I am told that thero aro tp bo several moro weddings In tho Hollow or vicinity soon. Ono couplo camo very near not getting mar rtotl nt nl ! tho tno-yrt-iJ" ... .uu on Bunday evening, unci me minister was engaged to bo there promptly, but ho failed to put in an appcaranco and the company waited and looked tor tho prpacher until midnight, and then they scut for somo ono else, and wcro disappointed again, They had to wait until Monday morning, when, to their great Joy, tho preacher camo and niado tho couplo happy. do not know what kept tho minister so long, but think It was not ncst-hldlng, for wo aro all conscientiously oppsod to such proceedings, Como over, Mr. Editor, when tho luv zcluuts get rlpo, and wo will entertain you the best wo can. Hoping that tin lu Hilly ami undo Davy and all tho rest of us will soon Join tho church and do bolter, mid that all who wUh to marry will soon bo happily mated, wo aro yours, wli)gly, for tho present, JAKK.

Judgo Hcrlmm had Just got back lrom n trip Into Nebraska, whero tho grasshop pers had dono their prettiest in destroy ing the crops. Our old friend, Dr. Jcssco Noel), wo found safely onscouced behind tho counter in his drug storo. Tho Doctor Is now village potmastcr. Ho has practiced for many years lu this coun ty, and with great success, but Is un able fo comply with the law passed last winter requiring every physician In the county to lite a copy of tho deplo ma Uucd to hlni from a medical uni versity, Dr.Noell graduated In tho uni versity of experience of twenty years standing, and the law should bo so amended as to piotect physicians of his class fiom the penalty Imposed by said act ol our last Legislature. Messrs. Henry Hankers and Fritz Waller, two of the curliest citizens of this part of the county wero next seen. These two men aro among the iliost publlc-splitted and most enterprising of our citizens und arc rapidly rising In fhu estimation of their fellow-cltl-zetis. Mr. Walter, we found, as nearly as can bo, the unlveisal chnlco for county Judgo of tho citizens of this part of the county. Hut ho assured u, that he was not anxious to be a candidate, but said If the partiality of his fellow citizens should dcxlrc him to become a candldati'.ho should not feel authorized ta decline. Mr. Henry A. Hankers, i u ho.-c mime has also been mentioned In (lie same connection, said ho had no aspirations, nnd should bo pleased to bo allowed to support Walter for the position. He said, this portion of Holt county was entitled to bo represented In tlio County Court, and trusted tho other pardons of the county would ac cord them tho man without contct. Our esteemed friend, Josepn It. Dodds, the. clllclcnt railroad station agent at Corning, Is erecting and has nearly completed a very neat 14 story frame residence. It Is In the gothlo stylo lu tho shape of a cross with porticos at the ends, and when finished will cost between $1,000 and $1,200, and will bo a real ornament to the village. Tho town of Coming has, as yet, no church cdllllce. Mr. Hungenstock In forms us that an effort was now making to erect one under the auspices of tho M. K. Church. Tho building Is to bo 42x28, nnd Is to be taken In hand as soon us eulllclcnt funds shall havo been secured. Messrs. F. & W.

They also ship carloads of hemp to St. Louis. Wo dropped In on Dr. Fnrrls, who has an Immcnso stock of drugs nnd medicines. Tho addition lately built to his store-room was greatly needed. Peter Christen, the cabinet-maker and furniture dealer, Is doing a lively busi ness In his lino. Ho has been hero ever slnco Corning was founded. Wo next visited Sedwlck, Peter & Co. Also Cool: & Kmmcrt, and found them nt their respective places of busi ness, with accommodating corps of clorks, full ot business. The Uermah language.

Hcsldes being agent for the South Head Studubaker wagon, ho has an Interest In tho only licenced saloon In town.

The French seem to have broken out In a now place In regard to Allien, Their failure in making of Algeria what they desired to do Is notorious and, slnco their grand nnny cannot subdue Algiers, they now propose to bring the sea to their aid and to flood a portion of the Inland plains, so as to inako a water communication lrom tho Mediterranean to an Inner lake. In regard to this enterprise wo rise to re. maik, in tho Hist place, that It Is quit' ridiculous, for French Journals to tear that It may havo any effect on tho ell uuito of Franco by tho exposure in its vicinity of largo extra surlace of water touwitWfJiq and lu the second, that this Is no orig inal idea, about which Ficuch savans need make a great ado.
