I A VEitf exciting railroad accident occurred the A. & P. Kailroad. be tween Fnnklin and St. Louis, ntS:30 A m. on -londay last. The accident was causd by a rotten rail, which broke unler the weight of the loco motive, aid threw the baggage and smoking rars oil the track, down an embanknent into the Meramee riv er. Tin bank pcrpendieu'arly is probably.hirty feel hi-!i.but it slants to an ane of forty-live degrees and from the op to the river's edge, the distance 100 feet or more. Down this ban! rolled the baggage and smoking iars,going end over end into the river. It was fortunate that the Meramee ivas frozen over, or the loss of lives l: drowning would have been great. A large number of the pass engers wu-e asleep at the time, and unconscious of danger. Three were badly injired, and quite a number were sligLtly wounded. Why ha-e trouble in the family? Why smoke yo;r biscuit, audeatb-ead cov ered with ishes and only one side bak ed, when Earls pays you a big price for your old, worthless cook stoves and sells a ne;v one low for cash ?

Again we are reminded, "that in the miiLt of life we are in death."' On last Tuesday Mr. Franklin 15. Forbes, of Easton," came to this city to attend a Masonic Lodge of instruction being held by Allen McDowell, Grand Lecturer of the State. He was in his usual good health. lie remained in the city until Wednesday evening, when he returned home, highly pleased with the instruc tion he had received. During the night his little son, Owen, a sweet cherub ol five summers, was severely attacked with croup, and continued to grow worse until Friday moining at halt-past six o'clock, when he passed lrom earth to heaven. Mr. Forbes was so stricken with grief that he immediately became delirious, and in the short space of live hours, In spirit winged its llight to join that of the little one who had gone before. Mr. Forbes was born in Platte county, Mi-souri, and was, at tho time of his death, thirty -six years old. St. Joseph Gazette, 24th. It seems, from later dates, that the above is partially incorrect. Mr. Forbes, it is true, was overwhelmed with grief at the death of his son, but his own death occuring so suddenly, the coroner went out from St. Joseph to hold an in quest. The jury rendered a verdict that the deceased "came to his death from the ertects of two or more doses of nar cotic medicines, administered by Dr. II. II. Hereford, one of said dose. ly the knowlodgo and consent of Dr. Loomis."' The medicine was morphine and chlo ral. Tho ITew Court House The Grand Structure in Process of Erection. Among all the improvements in pro gress or completed in St. Joseph during the past 3 car, there is none more ele- j gant and substantial than the new court ! houe.

As soon as the weather will permit, work will be recommenced, and by the middle of summer the handsomest brick, building on the banks of tho Missouri will be completed Herald. Holt County's Big Ditch. The work, in spite of the intense cold weather, is still progressing on the ditch which is to drain the Tarkio bottom. The work was commenced about the 1st of November, and a force of from ten to thirty hands is employed. The ditch is from two and a half to six and a half feet deep, according to the undula tions of the surface, and from twelve to twenty-eight feet wide. This ditch, when" completed, will bo eight and a half miles long, extending lrom the Tarkio lake south to Kimsey's creek be low the falls, about three miles north ot Forest City. This woik, when completed, will drain and render available for agricul tural purposes, about .1,500 acres of as rich soil as exists in the State.
