A correspondent of tht Cameron
Vindicator gives the following season
able hints, which will interest many
readers of the Sentinel: To protect
ices from the moth, take a plug of to
bacco, cut in pieces about an inch
square, and put one piece just inside
each corner upon the bench, table or
stand upgi which the hive is resting.
Thus placed it will not discommode the
bees in the least, but it will keep the
motlM at a respectful distance. They
do nut like the stuff. To protect fruit
blossom and setting fruit from being
killed by the frost, make mouldering
tires through and around the orchard.
You want an abundance of smoke, but
no hlazu. Have the most fire on the
windward side. Do not make the fires
too near the trees. Piles of sawdust, if

That. Financial Abstract.
EniTOit Sentinel: In your issue of
the 27th ult., 1 see what purports to be
a statement of the Financial Condition
of Holt Comity, Missouri, for the year
endine January 31st., 1880.
Now, in looking over that statement,
(or Balance Sheet) I find items trans
ferriiijj (.'amnion County Funds to the
Road and Bridge Fund amounting to
eleven thousand six hundred and nine-ty-fonr
dollars (SI 1,094), and two thou
sand dollars (2,000) to the.Poor House
Fund; in the aggregate thirteen thou
sand six hundred and ninety-four dol
lars. Will the Honorable County Court
be so kind ns to inform the
Tax Payers of Holt County by what
authority such transfers were made?
I presume they were mado through a
misconstruction of Section 5,392, Re
vised Statutes, 1879, which raad as fol
lows: "Whenever there is any balance
in any county treasury in this State to
the credit of any special fund which is
no onger needed for the purpose for
which it was raised, the County Court
may, by order of record, direct that
said balance be transferred tu the
ercdit of the general revenue fund of
the cwiinty, or to such other fund as
may in their judgment be iu need of
That section admits of but one con
struction. It certainly never was in
tended that the Common County Fund
could lie diverted from its legitimate
source. It may bo that the county is
in a condition that thcConinuiu County
Funds are no hmgtir ueedetl, but that
docs not seem to bethucae,for the bal
ance sheet shows that there is a balance
in the treasury of two thousand nine
hundred and eighty-six dollars
ninety-ono cents, (82,980,91.)
If Section 5,392 authorizes the court
to transfer the Common County Fund
to any other fund, what construction do
they put upon Section .1,30:1, which
reads as follows: "Nothing in the iire
cecding Section hall be construed tu
authorize any county court to transfer
or consolidate any funds, not othcrwisg
provided for by law, exepting balances,
of funds that the objucts of Heir crea
tion are and have boen fully satisfied."
Now, have the objects for which the
Common County Funds were created
been fully satisfied, and left remaining,
in the treasury, a balance of thirteen
thousand six hundred and ninety-four
dollars, for which the county will liavo
no further use for that fund? If so, the
transfer was legal and proper. If not,
then the transfer was a clear violation
of law, and the funds cannot be used
for the purposes for which they were
transferred. Then, jf tho law has been
violated, what is the penalty? Wo find
tho penalty in Section 5407 ns follows:
"Any Comity Judge or County Clerk
violating uiiv of tho provislops of this
Article (Article 4, Chapter 95,) shall
be guilty of a nilsdeinonuor mid shall
be punished accordingly, and upon, con
viction shall, in uldilTo.ll to the punish
ment provided by i;w, be removed

pursue this subject any further now.

It is the de-sire and aim of the Senti
nel to give all the local news, of any
importance, from every part of Holt
county. At the principle towns, such
as Mound City, Craig, Forest City,
etc., we have regular correspondents
who furnish us letters every week; but
it is an impossibility that any one of
them can get all the news in his local

able itenH froia others, which have es-
capsd tho notice of our regular news-
Sratherers. Wo also want good cor

Everybody is now working at 13, 15,

has raged through tho big cities for the
past month or two has now taken hold
of the people of Holt.
There are live positions, on one of
which the novice usually stalls. It is
comparatively easy to work the puzzle
so as to reach one of these, but then
comes the rub. All the numbers up to
twelve are easily worked into their
proper positions, but tho remaining
three numbers arc then found to occu
py one of the following positions: 14,
15, 13; 15, 13, 11; 14,13,15; 13, 15,14;
or 15, 14, 13. To get these numbers
into their proper positions Is the real
puzzle of tho game.
The Sentinel receives several hun
dred exchanges every week and we
have seen more than a thousand solu
tions; but the following are tho short
est and best for the" live positions
named and it is believed that no short
er methods than these have yet been
