Many persons in tins county are land poor" They would bo better off if they could sell part' of their land and stock and improve the reminder. Stock men should remember that we have a fiue assortment of liorse cuts, and can print bills on short notice, and at low prices. We learn that Elder Maupin has rented the Paynu property, recently oc cupied by Mrs. MeMurray, in the west ern suburbs .of the city. His family will be here in a few days. A Maine man who didn't care two shakes of a lamb's tail about the news- iiajiurs, roue, lountffli mile through a fierce snow-storm to get a copy of a weekly that spoke of him as "a promi nent citizen." To its three Democratic papers Plattsburg is about to add another which will be Hepublieau. The publi cation of four papers in a town but little larger than Oregon is a sure sign that the fool-kiler has not visited the Platte Purchase recently. On Thursday night of hist weak the editor of tho.SEXTisEr. was treated to a delightful serenade by a bevy of briglit cyed and iwect-voiced young ladies. "The music of theielles" is the fiinat wc have heard for a longtime. Thanks! Thanks! The paper boom continues, and prices will soon be so high that there will be no reasonable grounds for ob jections to paper money, as the pa per itself will possess the intrinsic, val ue represented on the faeo of the bank notes and greenbacks.

Look out for them. Two of the Uigaiow counterfeiters. Brown and Moore, are now iu jail in- Independence, Mo ,to which place thpy were sent by the U. S. Commissioner in default os 81,500 bail. The third, McChutoek, is in jail in this city. His bond was fixed at $750, which he has thus far been unable to give.

This may easily he avoided by frequently changing j the wick,or by washing it in strong.iiot soap suds, with soma ammonia in the rinsing water. Tho local in last week's Sextinkl iu regard to the eligibility of ladies its census enumerators attracted universal attention, and Miss' Dora, Skc'cls and Miss Edna Lukens (and perhaps others) have made application for positions. From all wc can learn, these ladies are amply quailificd for tho contemplated work and we hope their. applications will bo favorably considered. This is the kind of "woman's rii-iits" tho Skx- 4ixCL advocates. A new counterfeit legal-tender bill, which is such a close imitation of thu genuine as to deceive experts, has just ibeen discovered ami it is probable that a great many of them' Tire in the hands of the people. It is of the iries of 1875. Tho check letter is "C" I the bill is signed bv John Allison, ister, and John C. New, treasurer. It a dark apno avarice, the miner is and the fiber is imitated by ived lilies. The Rock Port Democrat ffJrenn- i4ack Organ) of last week says: "How would Mon . Clark Irvine of Holt coun ty, do fV Suite Senator? He is highly competent, aud eminently sound on tiie iirrciK-Jand transportation (ineitions." There is more in this suggestion than may at once appear to tho superficial observer This Senatorial district is composed of Holt, Nodaway and Atchi son counties and contains more Green-ba-kers in proportion to population than any other three contiguous coun ties in the State. The (ireenbaekers ami Republicans of Nodaway county worked together in the interest of Nich olas Ford at the last election and sent him out of the county with a' majority of upwards of eleven hundred. In Atchison county tho Republicans, Dem ocrats and Greenbaekers are almost equally divided, Irvine has severed his aonncction witli Democracy and no man in the State denounces Democratic thieverj' more bitterly than ho. Should tho Republicans ami (Ireenbaekers unite on him his election would be be yond question. We have hoard no ex pression of opinions among Republicans on the Senatorial question and we offer no advice. It would be an amusing il lustration of .the strange bed-fellows polities sometimes makes, if the Sf.n tinkl shouhhsupport Irvine, for office. And vet it Is one of the 'possibilities of the future, ; " Ink R. J. Smallwood has removed to Maryville, Mo. The next meeting of the fotcric Club will be held on the evening of Friday, March 12th. S. W. Morrison has rented a por tion of Mrs. Margaret Cummins's res idence. March came in bust Monday like a lamb, which is an indication, according to the weather prophets, that it will go out like a lion. The new Evangelical church at NickclPs Grove will be dedicated on Sunday, March 14, by Rev. J. G. Pfciff er, Presiding Elder, of Macon, Mo. - Our neighbors over in Savannah were enlivened last week by a street fight betweon a preacher and a teacher both prominent citizens of that place.- D. II Thitma, an enterprising farm er from Ohio, has purchased the R. J. Smallwood farm, near Oregon, and will at once bring his family here, anil take charge of the farm. Rev. J. H. Rmndege, tho Presi ding KIder of the United llrcthrcii in Christ, will hold a quarterly meeting at the Marion .school house in Holt county, which will bo commenced on Saturday, March 18th, at-onc o'clock in the afternoon and will continue over the following week. j Tho Clarksville Sentinel, n ac count of the increase in price of paper, has advanced its subscription ' price from $1.50 to $2.00 per year, and a 1 tho other Pike coimty papers intend ' to follow suit immediately. It is' proba ble that the Holt coiinty papers will do likewise nt no distant date. We learn that Mr. Kmmert, pro prietor of the narrow guage stock yards in St. Joseph, came up to Holt county a few days ago and purchifcd about fifty head of cattle from U. B. Harrison aud S. A. Garth, for which he paid them four cents a pound. He imme diately shipped them to Chicago, where ho got only 4 1-2 cents a pound for ! Ihcni. And now whenever you mention Holt county to him he swears worse than the army fn Flanders. -tip Rev. George A. JIcKinlay, who is spending a few days iu Kansas, will shortly return, bringing with him Ids family, and will remain in Forest City another year. This will be good news to his many friends in Holt county who had heard with regret that he contem plated going to another field to labor. His pulpit in Forest City .will be filled, next Sabbath morningjit eleven o'clock by Rev. Mr. Miller of.tjSiity. An exchange cays: ''Tho man who wants Ids nanio kept out of tho paper is. just the man who professes to have no faith i u 1 li i:. vii-tHaf-wdrttr-t4aiwg.-rAkJ him for a. local notice and ho will tell yoli no one reads the paper- but just let him get round flirting vit another man's wife, walking off with funds that don't belong to him, or trying to hold up a lamp post some, dark night, and he'll climb seventeen, pairs of stairs and beg on his bended knees that tiie iteni should be suppressed..',' Tho latest example of the foolish ness, of going to law about trifles comes from Atchisjn county. A case .which developed a great deal "of ill feeling was tried before 'Squire Kcssler in. Rock Port last week, the plaintiff and" de fendant being brntlicriuid .sister, ami the dispute being about the ownership of a dozen and a half of chickens, worth about three dollars. Tho ense was de cided ngainsttlii' plaintiff (tho brother) and he had to shoulder costs amounting to about M.xty dollars. And wtf'are glad of it. Last Sunday ovo'diig, Albert, a nine year old son of Levi Oren, was se-vcrery-ihjttrod. by a ktclc from "a rivilo. The accident occurred at -Mr. Orcn's farm near--New Point. A miissengor was immediately .dispatciied for Dr. Thatcher of tiiis city,v'whn, ov arrival, found that thu wound was n serious one, peuetratiiii: the hp and check for a dis tance of tlircc inches. Fortunately no bones were broken. "Dr. Thatcher sow ed up the wound aud made thu little fel low as comfortable as possible, and he is now getting along very well, though he, will always wear a near to remind him to keep, at a respectful distance from a mule's heels. We are . informed that tho cattle market in Holt county is not iu a very sattsfaclory condition at present. The trouble seems to be that the cattle arc light in weight, not jet having been sullicienlly fattened. Well fatted cattle from 1,450 to, 1,000 pounds, are in good demand, for export, at from 4 to 4 1-2 cents per pound ; while common cattle, weighing from 1,100 to 1,:I(0 are only in moderate demand, at 3 1-2 to :l JM cents jier pound. . .ilivC. V. Mc Coy, the catthibuyer, informs us that if the cattle now ou hand, are kept until they are wcllfattcil.they will bring bet ter prices, in proportion, than if sold now; but this will take two or threu mouths. A. M. Purdy, of Palmyra, X. Y., sends postpaid and free to all appliea cauts'his valuable 21 page Catalogue of Fruits and Flowers, giving kinds, des criptions, mode of planting, etc. Ev ery person who has a rod of garden or ground to plant should have it He also sends f ice a specimen copy of the Fruit Recorder and Cottage Gardener, a monthly at $1.00 per year, devoted to fruits and flowers it speaks for itelf; while 25 cents will get his C4-pngii Small Fruit Instructor a work pro nounced by all wiio have seen it, the most concise and practical of any yet printed. Persons sending"' to Iiim now will get tho Catalogue, and the Fruit Recorder for 1880 and the Small Fruit Instructor, all post-paid, for only one dollar.' Ho accepts postage stamps for oid cliangi'. Rev. U.S. Waggoner,of the Protec tant Methodist church, will preach next. Sunday, the 7th, nt tho Banks school house; on Saturday and Sunday, the 18th and 14th, at the Peirce school house ; and on Sunday, the 21st, at the Shiloah school house, For some years our 'neighboring town, Savannah, has had a paper called the Democrat. Recently, George E. King started an opposition paper there, ca led the Saturday Democrat. The intention apparently is to confuse the people and take advantage of the good name tho old Democrat had earned. Wo think King lias been guilty of a mighty small piece of business. A letter has been received from Frank Peter, one of the runaway lads who recently left this city for the Black Hills. He Is out in Kansas on the Denver road and writes for mHipy with which to return. When he left he was pretty wall howled, finaticililly, as-Jio had lioen saving his spending money for a long ""time ; and it is said when he got to St. Joseph he purchased a Henry rifle, a revolver and a bowie knife. He will doubtless return home within a few days. Jiarried, by Professor O. C. Hill, at his resilience in this city, on Sunday night, February "29th, 1830, Mr. B. S. Denny to Miss May Massic, both of New Point, Holt county, Mo. Atten dants, Mr. C. O. Denny and Miss Ella Evans, and Mr. J. J. Massic anil Miss Binuie Massie. Immediately after the eoremony the newly wedded couple went to Forest City, where they took tho train for Weston, Mo. Afterspend ing a few days witli friends there they will 'i-etum to Holt comity and imme diately go to Inutsekceping. The Skx tixkl extends them best wishes fcir a long and happy life. The Stanberry Sentinel, was started a few weeks ago as an independent paper. Tho Stanberry Sun was shortly after ward started as a Republican paper. The Sentinel now drops its "independence" and announces itself a Democratic pa per. That's right. Papers which try to please everybody generally please nobody. The first duty of a country paper is to furnish its readers with the home news; after that it should tell t hem of the most important movements in politics and should freely express, its opinions as to what is for the best in terests of the couutry: No sensible man will fall out with an editor because ho has opinions on politics. We can't all lie Republicans, any more than we can all be Presbyterians or all Metho dists. S. Jones IIersh!)erer, who re moved from this city to Kansas several mouths ago, returned on a brief visit latwcok and received a hearty wel c7ime from his iiost of friends:' He in forms us that he is about to engage iu mercantile business at Altamnut, a new town on tho St. Iouis and San Francis co Rsilroad. twenty-two miles north we.t of Chctopa. Ho will keep a gen eral stock of dry goods, boots and shoes', etc., and will open his business about the middle of this month. His brother Will will be associated with him. We had hoped that Mr. Hcrsh berger would gravitate back to old Holt asain and are sorry lie lias made arrangements which will mako him a permanent citizen of Kansas. Ho is a gooii man, honest, reliable, aceomnw diiting, and wide awake, and the peo ple iu and around Altamont are to bo congratulated on the acquisition of a good citizen. He sold goods in this city for several years and did a very large business; and, as ho knows how to buy as well as how to sell, we pre dict lie will do well in his new venture. Wc, in common with id most every other newspaper in the couutryihave worn out several fonts of type in the publication of warnings against swin dles designed to entrap a. gullible pub lie, and yet t ho repeated warnings somehow don't seem to do any good, j Worthless patent rights have received especial attention, yet notwithstanding thu fact that scarcely a week passes in which we are not called upon to record the taking of a victim, each new lib tongued btranger is able to convince somebody that he has a bonanza which hu, is prepared to sell for about a tithe of its value. Hope springs eternal in the human breast, and some sanguine farmer is always ready to trade tangi ble horses, cattle and hogs for imagin ary "big tilings" that exist only on pa-pet- and arc only available property in the huntU of some fellow with fluent speech and no conscience. TJio Hop kins Journal of hist week furnished the latest instance of this species of rascal ity, which has just been perpetrated in Nodaway county. The fellow, by this time, Is doubtless button-holing some honest Holt coimty granger. This is the story thu Journal tells: "A man named Orr M. Decker has been stopping at the Tremont House in this city for soino time p-ist and was the owner oi a patent graitiog shears, which, according to his story, had nnl lious in them. Hu met his victim in the person of Mr. Amos Frcomyer, a fanner living on the Platte River about seventeen miles cast. Mr. Frceinyer gave him a pair of horse, a wagon and some hogs, to the value of for ter ritory wo did not learn how much covered by the patent. It did not take the purchaser long to discover that hu had been swindled, and on Sunday hu came to Hopkins aud had Justice Douglas issue tho necessary papers for Decker's arrest. The latter, however, got word of what was iu thu wind aud skipped out for pastures new. Free myer mourns the loss ot his team and hogs, and Decker is doubtless hunting a chance to make sumo other man's fortune." Closing Out. Read tiie Red Front advertisement in another column.

Has-1 ness of the Press. Vet Graham is the name of the new town in Whig Vallsy, which has at last been located. It is on the farm of John S. and Thomas Swopo. Our Whig Valley correspondent this week gives a description of thu topography of the country, from which a pretty good idea of the new town site can be gathered. No paper in the State has better correspondents than those of the Sex tinki. at Mound City, Craig and Forest City. Theygivo all tho local news of their towns iu a condensed yet readable shape, and that's just what wo want. Let other correspondents model after them. A Jefferson City dispatch says that j Hie Attorney-General has filed a. quo j warranto in the Supreme court, against j three of the Mutual Benefit Societies of j the State, to test their right to h". busl- j ness tinder the law reindatiiii Insurance ' Companies in this State.

"?no:)ks" is no doubt a constant reader of thu Sentinel a.d "Snooks'" probably read the local in last week's paper; in which we stated, for tho hun dredth time, that correspondents must neeomnany their communications with their names; and yet "Saooks" this week sends us a letter, headed "Listen to Us," to which he docs not sign.hjs nam. We therefore, decline to listen to "Snooks," and have placed his letter in the Waste-basket. "Leap year gives yoaag ladies a gentleman's privilege in making love." Perhaps it docs. But no respectable young man, says an able Western jour nal, will have anything to do with a young lady who takes a position on the street corner and winks at tho gentle men as they pass by Nor would it look well for a dozen or more young ladies to loaf around in front of a church an hour and a half on Sunday nights, sparring and knocking one another's hats off, and dancing a tra-la la onthe sidewalk in order to kill time until thu congregation is dismissed, and- then buckle up to a young man aud escort him home. Not any. . The correspondent who writes ns a smart letter askiugus whether Mound City will hereafter be known as East Bigclow or West-West Gra ham is informed that the Sentinel is engaged in better business than stir-; ring.up local jealousies between the dif ferent towns of the county. Not a lic has ever been admitted to ibiTcoluivus, I smce it has been under its present man- J agement, which would reflect in tliCj slightest degree on Mound City or r-.y other town in tl-c rounty; and none. ever will bo. And we may add that if tho Sextixel's example wenfimitated by a certain very fresh but very feeblu contemporary, whose sole object in ex istence seems to bo to throw shirs at everybody outside its own town pre cincts, there would soon be an end to these imaginary conflicts of interest. Atchison county don't mean that railroads within its limits shall escape taxation. Tho county court at the late term raised the valuation of the main line of tho K. C. St. J. & O. B. railroad, i from $4,G0O per mile to 9 000; and thu side tracks from $:),C0O per mile to ! $8,000. This is right, and tho county j court of Holt county should pursue a similar course. Tho K. C. St. J. & C. ! B. railroad should receive no favors in the way of low valuation on which to base its taxes. It extends no favorsl whatever to our people, although it constantly asks favors from them. Its officers frequently treat our shippers with rudeness and brusquely inform them that, since there is no compcti-l tion, they must submit to whatever ex tortion may be demanded. They are constantly growing more and more in- j .different toward the convenience of thel people living along its line, and theyi now even refu.se to publish tho arrivals and departures of their trains. Since j they nro disposed to grab every dollar they can, tho court should treat them iu tho same spirit by taxing them to the t utmost limit. ! Closing Out.

Ycrgot to say in the item above upon the subject of strike that so far no men arc engaged iu it but General Taylor's. Fonie threats were made looking towanl a niovenicut to induce others to join them, but no effort has been made to carry such threats Into execution. Among the l'ato victims of the dip thcria was a little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lausdown of the eastern part of the ciiy. The latest cases reported are two at Mr. Palm's,- one at Levi Dur ham's, the case at the latter place being of a mild type, while those at tho for mer are regarded as serious. As intimated last week.the strike on the railroad worksatthis place, was start ed this morning (Monday)by a "gang" on Taylor'-sjinill refusing to resume busi ness.. The movement as yet is not gen eral and doubtless will not be till later in the spring. Tho strikers so far con sist of but an insignificant squad, not intended to accomplish any direct re sult, but is thrown out rather as a "fee ler" preparatory to filturo open-lions of tho same kind upon a more extensive scale.
