cane, Monroe, Millwood, Wavcrly,
and iu fact all over the county, say
their crops are suffering, and the
ground is too dry to commence plow

or wheat sown this full.
We learn from somo of those pros-
Jt that tho plc-nic given by the good
miliars last Wednesday, on the
road between Auburn and Smith's
Mills, wusquito a success. A largo
number of Indies and gentleman were
present to hear the speccheh and par

were appropriate aud were attent

We co that many of tho counties of
the state have societies of tho old set
tlers who meet annually for tho pur
poso of relating their experiences of
tho early settlement of tho country,
and having n pleasant social re-unlon.
In Msriou county theso pioneers arc
to hold their second annual meeting
next month, and extonslvo prepara
tions have beou rnado for tho enjoy
ment of all who may attend, and a
general invitation has been glvon to
every old settler in northoast Mis
souri aud to the adjacent counties of
Illinois. Iu Pike a movement of tho
same kind is about to bo inaugurated.
We do not see why Lincoln couuty
may not have a club of the old settlers.
Thero aro many men who ennio here
when this county wan a wilderness
long before it was organised. These
old pioneers could tell many inter
esting incidents of the early settlo
mcut of the county : of tho war or
1812 with its horrors of Indiana mas
sacros, the continued depredations of
these savages extondlng principally
down to the year 1820, and in somo
instancoi until thoy wero removed
by Col. Dailey, under authority of
the general government, to tho In
dian Territory ; and of the "Slicker"
war of 1837-40, betweon the regula
tors on tho one side and tho counter
feiters and horso and cattle thlovcs on
tho other. The early history of our
county is rich iu incident und adveu
turo. Much of It that was worthy of
preservation has been lost, and more
of It exists only in tho recollection of
our older citizens, mi tnem come
togothor and give their history and
the history or their times to tho pub
lie. We suggest that a meeting of
this kind be held in this place some
timo during tho month or September
or October. The citizens or Trov.
would give them a fitting receptiou
To make the undertaking a success,

on his way to Kuropo to spend a
short seasou of recreation, in tho hopo
that his health, which had become
impaired through tho faithful per
formance of his many and arduous
duties, might bo restored. He was a
native of Cork, Ireland, and camo
with his father's family to this coun
try in 1839. Ho settled at Potosi, and
shortly afterwards entered tho semi
nary of tho ordor of tho Congrega
tion of tho Missions, at the Barrens
near Perry ville. He was ordained in
1846 by Archibald Kcndrick. With
tho cxcoptlon or a year's travel in
Kuropo and Palestine, ho has sinco

cessfully In his calling in tho city of
St. Louis. Among tho many results
or ills work may bo mentioned tho
founding of tho largest aud most
prosperous parishes in the city, two
or threo parochial schools one at a
cost of fifty thousand dollars and
one convent. He was universally
respected for his genuluo christian
worth, no loss by thoio of other de
nominations than by tho members of
his own congregations.

Tub Tobacco ukoi This seems
to bo a good year for tho tobacco
worm. Reports come to us that they
are doing great dmnago to this crop
thoro being about an average ot threo
worms to every stalk, and it will re
quire close attention aud industry for
our tobacco raisers to ninko anything
liko an avcrago crop between the
worms aud tho drought. But wo
havo somo energetic men in the bus
lucss, who aro determined to fight
the worms, aud nil such wo doubt
not, will bo repaid for their industry
Among these is our patron J. K
Richards, an energetic young farmer
of tho lower part ot tho county
Ho has about seven acres or more of
this staplo growing, which is doing
finely, being from two and a halt to
threo feet in height, and tho leaves
are well dovoloped. But he has paid
close attention to the crop, kept tho
soil well stirred about it, and tho
worms off, though it kept him busy
to do this. Ho expects his crop to
avcrago him about ono thousand
pounds to tho aero, which will bo
ulco little Income and romuncrato him
for bis caro aud trouble.
Our friend Joe Creech, received a
painful Injury last week by being
thrown out of a wagon. Ho was sit
ting near tbo back end, and was in

to loso his balanco and fall heavily to
tho ground. His right elbow was
much bruised, but is now slowly im
proving. )
Xo Pi.ack Likr Home. Ono of
our incorrigible town boys recently
took it into hit head to fight tho
battle of life alono, and accordingly
last Wednesday morning, shoeless,
coatlojs, and almost hatlcss, aud sans
money, without warning to his pa-
routs, mounted his pony and started
tho war path. He mado good
timo to Wcntzvlllo, whero ho left his
pony In churgoof a small boy, direct
ing him to havo his fuu out of the
animal for a fow days, as a sort or
recompense for taking chargo of lilin,
and then to ride lilin out on tlio road
tho mill, turn Ids head toward
Troy, aud whalo him liko tho "very
old mischief, and ho'll go home."
Soon tho train camo lumbering by,
and Young America secured a scat
on tho rear platform of tho sleeping
car, and was of)' for the metropolis of
tho West. Arriving at St. Louis ho
wandered around, and at night made
his bed on tho hard rocks near tho
Blddlo street depot, which ho says
nearly "punched a holo in bis head."
Tho next day tho "inner man" was
making gnawing demands, and ho
succeeded in begging a crust and a
cold potato, which checked it for
awhile. Concluding that tho battlo
of life was u hard one for a boy with
out means or friends in a strange
land, liko tho prodigal son of old, ho
bethought himself or the homo ho had
left, tho warm sumptuous meals that
wore dally spread out before him, aud
tho comfortable beds to rest Ills
weary limbs ou at night, and not
likitig tho appearance of the city and
tho police, ho determined to return
home. It was thou ho missed his
pony, as bare-rooted bo tramped up
tho railroad track. lie says lie
walked all the way back to Wonts-
vlllc, sleeping out in tho woods
Thursday night, aud when ho arrived
at that place be found his father, who
had started on a hunt for him, ready
to rccolve him with opon arms. Our
little frlond was delighted to get
homo, and expatiates with a sort of
regretful delight at what ho went
through his hard beds, his hunger,
his foot-sore Journey, &c, and will
bo quito a hero among somo of his
companions for a few days; but if
thoy listen attentively to him, we
think but few of them will attempt
to go through the same experience.

of his arrival was congratulating
himself on what a nlco sleep ho

fellow looks like ho had just rccov

lost about sovon pounds in his threo

your mother's apron strings, for you
will not find any one elso so ready to
