The ' ruIHin ans wered by a stronger onslaught on the door, when the woman fired, the bul- l oassin through the door, perfer- auog the man s over and uadcrcoat, vest and two shirts, and slightly abraded the skin of his abdomen. The notorious women occunrinz the house became frihtenei over the af- "ir goals and departed on the night tram for puts unknown.

JtHersoa Davis Tiusty, sheriff :as county. Mo., puaed up posst ; because he is sheriff of the big t county in the state named for : biggest state in the union, or on ount of the eminent origin ot his ?n name, seems to have conceived 1 caggerated notion of his own im; tanoe and a contemptible idea of powers of a circuit iudge. This conception of the dignity of his of- ; lately got him into a controversy h Judge Rucker at CarroUtoo in "ch Trusty of the high sounding .ae came out sreond best. Sheriff vis of Carroll county had sent him 2e papers to serve in a divcrce e. The pipers were served all it, but the sheriff of Texas county ised to return them until his fees :c paid. He was warned that un 1 he did make the proper returns by rTtain time he would be attached for tempt. It seems the Texas county -ial has a mind for the . curious as 1 as an exaggerated idea of his own ortance. and answered that he had .urning desire to see what an. at hment looked Like and to come and I him.

She was speech less and unconscious from the begin ning of her affliction and died the day before Mr. Mitchell reached her home. She was 54 years of age and leaves a husband and ten children six girls and four boys. Two of her daughters are tnamed, wh'le the youngest child is 14 years old. Mr. Mitchell says the prospect for wheat from Kansas City to Bates county is much better than it is here. Farmers are sowing oats and planting potatoes. He saw several farmers planting potatoes with planters arranged for 'that purpose. I Ic returned home by way of Keytes ville Last Tuesday. J. K. Robertson, the senior pro prietor of the Keytesville Signal, has sold his Yolow Creek -township 160- acre farm to a Mr. West for $3,100. This males the second farm the bux om bull-hoc has sunk in liu trantic endeavors to run a newspaper, and he is not yet extricated from the fi nancuJ meshes into which his journal istic gymnastics have landed him. It is both amusing and distressing to observe such a creature as Hull-frog Robertson engaged in "literary pur suits, lie understands about as much of what constitutes a newspaper as a Hottentot knows of the plan of salvation. We pity him some, but we pity the Stgnars readers more. The townslup election at this place last Tuesday resulted in the usual number of drunks, but only . wo fights were recorded, and they occurred be- wecn political enthusiasts of coor. John Martin and Den Kutler had a knock down argument, and afterwards settled their differences in the mayor's court. Martin was fined S and costs Butler and costs. The other bellig. erents were Walker Pulliam and Frank Spence. both ol whom pleaded guilty before Mayor Gilliam to disturbing the peace of the city, by quarreling, chal- mgiDg and nghbog. and were fined $a a piece and trimmings.

Sigloch, the jeweler, both of Keytesv?.le. have invented quite a useful contrivance in the shape of a can-opener upon which they have ap plied to their Uncle Sam for a patent. The handles resemble those of a pair of scissors, but are riveted together at the ends. About midway of the handles there is a slot ia which a movable screw, with a wit 00 the up per side, works back and forth, making it adjustable"! any size can. On the lower side of one of these screws there is a knife whkh dees the cutting, while on the other there is an appliance, which. by bearing down on the handle, holds the can steady while it is being open ed.
