Death of David Walter.
A largo circle of friends :ind acquain
tances will regret to learn of tho demise
of David Walter, an old and highly re
spected citizen of Rochester, Andrew
county, Missouri.
From the St. Joseph Herald wo gath
cr the following points in.tho life of Mr,
V alter. He was born on the 18th of
November, 1802, in. the' city of Stralsund
on tjie Baltic sea. He removed to tho
city of Philadelphia in 1820, aud - there
he learned the trade of baker and con
fectioncr. After serving a faithful ap
prenticeship, ho became discontented
with tlie. small profits arising from work
ing for others, and the true spirit of
mdependance, opened business for him
self at 412 Raco street. He couducted
tlie' business successfully live years. In
the year 1825, he closed business in the
Quaker City and removed to Wines
burg, Holmes county, Ohio. Hero he
farmed until September, 1857, when he
removed to Rochester, Andrew county.
Missouri. After seven years spent iu
fanning, he embarked in merchandise,
which occupied his time and attention
until two or, three years ago, when he
retired from tho active duties of a life
well spent. Several days previous to
his de:itli,.hoJosthLi appetite,, and on
Tucsd.tr, Mar ,20, at tho ripe aire of
seventy-nne years, ho passed to that
better lanrt for which the experience
of a Christian's faith from early youth
had flttcdhiin. lie kit thirteen children
to mourn his loss. He nlso led consid
erablo property tho savings or pru-
tlcnco and economy. JIc was vcrr
popular in the community in .which he
lived, and always took an active part
in every enterprise tending to advance
the moral, social and commercial inter
ests of the people. - However, the
monrning friends can console them
selves with the reflection that their loss
is his eternal gain.
Mr. E. Brayton returned last week

A Revolution in Milling.
The St. Louis Democrat contains an
account of a "new process" by which
what have heretofore been sold as the
poorcs t grades of flour become the best
grades. A number of Minnc.ota mil
lers have been for some time" past con
verting tho dark-colored spring wheat
of the' Northwest into flour' that sold for
quite as much money -er barrel :in' the
East as did the fancy" winter' wheat St.
Louis Hours. Iu fact, in some localities
tho preference was given to the "new,
process Hour, prices being equal, ihc
chief reason why two or more grades
of flour are made out of one lot of wheat
is tliat a brown and almost impalpable
powder results from the grinding of tho
wheat, which ifts through the bolts
into tho middlings and specks the flour
made from litem. Tho "new proc-.-ss"
consists in r!loltin! tho rcffrouud mid.
dlinjrs With tlio patent boltlnsr appara
tus.' Automatic shakers and trtimpcrs
arc employed to oscillate ami jar the
bolt as tho .stream of middlings passes
tliroiiirh it. Jiy tins means the brown
powder comes to tlie top and ii blown
awav bv a stcadr eentlv Iiftinjr wind.
and the rcgninnd middlings are cliangcd

Some look as tllthy us n goat,
.Almost as nasty as a (.hunt,
And Jet they wish the ladies fair,
Oftheir resjiects loVlalma hare.
It seems lo me they're void of thought,
They never ought to have forgot
That surh conduct will much offend
Their neat and tidy female friend.
And then there is the druuken sot
That k-eps his IiIo mI forever hot,
Awl rheWH and-smokes the tllthy weed,
A most disgusting sight indeed.
Ssy, Christians and you temperance crew,
That love to smoke and love to chew,
How can Jou warn the drunken sot
When in your mouth the weed you've got?
Clean out your eyes tliat von may aeo
- mote that,"). your neighbor's be,
Or, cl'c wheu him you do exhort
til you ne ii ponroui uis retort.
Was half of his tobacco tax
Laid out for cotton. Wool and flax,

Hut knows the naked migln be clad ;
The other half In bread and meat
And given to tlie poor to eat
Would not iniKiir the Commonwealth
Ami raurb Improve the people's health.
Xow, whatl'vesaid lsmoily true,
Yet only jitstlllril by fewj
Hut what of that, since woe betide,
The limn tliat does with error side.

And no mure smoke It, chew nor snuff.

"Yes" wo replied, "money is not over
"Never saw such times before," he
"And why is money so scarce with

of his frailties, and intending to teach
him a lesson.
"I don't know, unless it bo tliat tho
country is' going to ruin."
"Very likely," we said; and then
talked about his health, his family, and
other interesting matters. Ho wore at
tho tinio a pair of fine now boots, and
wo asked, "'who made your now boots?"
