(URM SCtNC IN HOLT COUNTY. MO. c VOLUME XVI. Hy tlio way wo understand Moses Honuett has tlm contract to bulal tlio house for J lid go Uussel. Wo infer from this thu house Is to bo of brick. Sickness continues in tlio low lands and other parts exposed to malaria, Hy tlio way tho oecurrenoo of dlptherta at points fur re aio to from whero tho theo ries uf writers place tho eaiiso over throws nil their theories. Holt county is tho 49th county in the Stato us to population, having 16, 610; Andrew is tho 42d, Atchison thu Mth ; while Uuchannn is tho 3d and Nodaway tho 7th mid Jackson is the second. Stories about small-pox at Clinton Missouri aro much exaggerated. The casus aro ne&rly nil among those rlio lmvo been vaccinated, nro merely vari oloid, and mild too. Wo warn thoso who have never been vaccinated to hayo it dono forthwith. See to it that tho matter is puru. Joseph Proctor died Tuesday of last week aged about 6G years. His death was very sudden, having gone to bed well. During thu night his wife was dtsttubed by his struggles and ho died in a very few moments. Disease was doubtless of tho heart. Mr. Proctor was jin old citizen of Holt having resided hero upwards of thirty years. -Mr. Milo Williams of High land Kausas,was mnrriod in St. Joseph, but Friday, to Miss Magglo Hyan, daughter of Jeremiah Ityau of Holt county. They camo up on tho after noon train thu fame day atjil a big Clip per was given thum by tho bride's pa rents on Friday lilght, 10 wliluh all their friends wcro invited. A long experience of life on thu Upprr Missouri ltiver convinces us that ull houses here for business or dwel lings should be of brick or stone, to bo comfortable, Tho objection of the.su costing mora should bo met by putting up smaller houses. One comfortable room is better than half a dozen un comfortable. Tho saving in fuel and health will ln'iv fow years pay for the difference, t Mrs. James Coursiu left last Satur dayfor Kansas Clty.whero she will spend a few daysjvislting her married daugh ter, and will then go to Salem, Indiana to spend n few weeks with her aged mother, ninety years old, whom alio has not seen since sho loft Indiana for Mis souri fifteen years ago. Her many friends wish bur a pleasant visit and safe return. -Mir. It. Coleman of Silver Cliff, Colorado, --daughter of Mr. Jacob Fos ter of this city arrived hens with her four whlldreu lnt Thursday and wi'l remain all summer. Shu was eight days on tho road, having been snowed-ln four-and ii-hnlf davs. She speaks in tho highest terms of tho offl cers of thu Topeka & SaHta Fo railroad, who did everything in their power for the comfort of tho passengers while they wore snow bound. As the time comes for Old Wlntor to relax his icy grasp on all things peo ple should begin to look about and con eider of Improving, if they ever intend doing so. We hear of several projects likely to be carried out. One firm intends to erect n block on a cor ner of the square. Mr. Ira 1'etcr will probably erect u store house, nUo Judgu ltussol has let the contract for n dwel ling to be put up on tho south lino of town and lacing plainly tho view from the most business part of it. Thero is no si to equal to this ono for a mag nificent residence. It will, if of a good elzo, set off our town perfectly. If now tho city and thu Woman's Union will eojliblno to oreot a city hall, oven thougwit bu of one' storyjiur lovely llttlo town will muke iv different showing trora Ifyputt. m tf ' f)vp wood srsearco that it seems almost impossible to get any. There is no reliable supply. Tills Is becauso every considerable lot of wood, plied up in tho timber, Is bought up hud car ried north. To burn green wood dur ing such u winter as thin is to suffer from cold and many Incoftvuulencs. Thousands of cords of wood are pur chased as they stand, by speculators. Hero and there, near town, whore ono has a fow cords, is our supply to bo found. What shall bo duio? To roly on the railroads for eoal during tho wln tor is to make it certain you won't got any when you wunt it most. Wo ad vise every one to burn ooal and bo sure and havo a, supply on hand to do them before October eiids. Il is vory evident that our wood Is nearly exhausted, so fay as u market supply is concerned. Mr. Will Graham and wifo of Malt land aro vitiiing friends hero this week. 6 ibelow zero Saturday morning last. Mr. John Eilor is quito ill at his resldencu: at last account was slowly recovering. Our notice of the cruel treatment of horses by leaving them hitched out ox posed to tho storms and cold has called forth approval from several. Weather is wonderfully changeable : from 80 to 60 abovo zero Tuesday, when by 4 r. M. a sudden turn of tho wind to northrau it dovn to about 10 above zero. Mr. Joseph Iloblitzell bought the Gardner homestead, nt the sale, and traded it to Sir. T. I. Kreek for the property occupied by Horshberger & Anderson as a storo room. Cows aro running out ovor thu town this week. Wo saw several plung ing through drifts to get at sleds and wagons from thu country Let us nev- get back to old times in that respect. Look to it, city marshal. Quito an effort is making to pre vent the grant of dram shop license to nny person who may apply to sell in Oregon. We think that is tho pcrfcc lion of tho law, Inasmuch ns it gives the people power to control tho matter in their own different neighborhoods. If they don't want it they need not hnvo it Kvery day during this wcok and most of last a woman has been seen driving a team through Oregon streets seated on a lnrgu sled lnadcned with wood. When thu roads wcro worst the was yet pursuintf her course, and sho was thu first to break tho road coming to town. Shu was an hour coming up the Sterrct hill tho Monday after the great snowfall. Wo understand that tho county court refuses to grant dram shop llcenso to parties in unincorporated towns. Wu hope it is tho case, because it Is tho right course to pursue. Drop a llttlu grogery at ovury cross-road, with no otllcer iu tlio immediate neighborhood with power to preserve tho peace, and what a sweet-scented statu of affairs wu would have, Hoekport Democrat. Thu lecture by Captain Poseguto was very well attended. Head speech es and lectures nro not popular and we think onu, who speaks and talks as well as Captain Posegato, makes a mistake when he reads a lecture. Ho is a good ta'ker and excels m an off-hand deliv ery and thus gits in rapport with Ids hearers. Wo mlvisu dipt. P. tc use notes, but never recur to them unless it is necessary. Go away from Home for news of it," is an old saying. How many people In Holt County know ahou t tli o 'mad stone owned by Unulu, John Kelson, at Savannah, Mo.? And yi't tho New York City papers liavo mora than once, spoken about It. It has Uecu used In over a hundred case, where persons hnvo been bit by mad dogs, mad hogs, etc, etc It has never failed to prevent hydro pho bia. At tho meeting of tho Democratic Central Committee last week, at Forest City, Mr. Joliu L. Chuning was chosen to bo recommended to thesGov o.'nor for County Judgo v&o McCoy, resigned. Wo learn that Mr. Levi Zook's name was proposed (prob. ably against his will.) Mr. Chuning refusing to accept, another meeting is called for tho Both Inst. Mr. Zook would make an excellent ofllcerNf he will only accept, IHumcss is uusIiYiss, and that much wo will say. ij Another caso of out wanton brulfll ity has been reported.

Xellseh to Miss Carrie Hubitt, daughter Hnhitt, all of Holt County. of Juduo Tiiiui and again havo we alluded to i the urgent necessity of providing means to drain the waters from the bottom ' bulow Forest as far as to tho vicinity of J Forbes. Tho whole enmity Is deeply Interested iu thi. One private person offers io given thousand dollars towards this. Who else will contribute? On Tuesday afternoon an exceed ingly Iliiekeyed individual of venerable aspect, whoso long white locks fell upon his shoulders from under a cap, fizzled around the street liko a squib.in various i owner in a trot having lived six days 1 is requeued, and all is sati-lautory be diru,:tions, coining up with n sudden j thus m and upon thu snow apparently ; twecn the parties interested. hall and taking a stop .backwards. Shame, old man! The damage dono to peach, plum, cherry, apple and shadu trees in and around Oregon by tho continued sleet and snow that settled on thorn during the great storms of Saturday and Sun day two weeks ago, breaking down branches nud trunks must amount to many thousand dollars. Thoso who coino into Holt from the Kat buy land readily, this spring, at good prices. Mr. Henry Sterrett sold this wcok, eighty acres of raw land, upon Squaw Creek, for nineteen hun dred dollars, to a Mr. Miller of Shelby county Intl., who reports that more aro coming from his neighborhood. Come on I Holt county has room for at least 20,000 moro people. Thoro have been Instances of colder spoils of weather than thu coldest of this Winter; but no Instance of such a ;oug,ijersisteiit reign of freezing weath er. Since sometlmo Ih Nor. thero have been but thrco or fwur times when tho murcury went abovo;32 or tho freezing point. Intho wlntcrof 18ft7 Feb. thu niercuryjoneo got lower than UO below zero Now whllo we think of it lot us sug gest that some business man of Oregon lay in a supply of coal during next October. Thoro eanjbo no ground to fear any loss iu so doing. Even iu the mild est winter ten per cent will bo tho low est pi ofit to expect; wood also might bojlald in to even grontur advantage, Some ono with a very tmall capital might makeja reniuiiurativu oinploymout for himself and toam nil winter in this way. No ccmniunlly should over bu found as dustltiilo of fuel us was this when tho big storm broku upon us. Dally now the tun is mounting and growing warmer.
