OREGON, MISSOURI, FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 1881. .NUMBER 40. Mr Wilson bus bought thu fmmo feotiso, now occupied by him, of Henry Richards. -Somo lengthy communications nr crowded out,. this week. It cannot bo avoided s acols proelons. 'Tho Lever," o( Plattburg, gl e Senator Wt a skinning for his letter against submitting Prohibition to the pooj)l. The hanging of the. Talbrtt t boys has been postponed until after the su premo court shall have reviewed the once. Dr. Chester Evans has returned from St. Jos- ph wliero ho ha lieen at tending Lectures, lie taken charge of the H nekberry s hool for the summer. It is hinted around hut a partner ship Sas been formed by and between Jud.'o D r.lel Zool- ami thn Honoiablu John W. Stokes, allot Holt county, Mo. Wo think there Is an ordinance against firing off guns and pistols within the ll'i.Its of the town, yet, oc casionally, tho reports of firearms, dis charged In town, nru heard. -Wo hear of any number of It. R. accidents nil around us. It is only what may be expected after such a se vere wlntor. The extreme, cold relax ing, loosens things up, undttim'o arc bro ken rails, falling rocks, sliding earth, and a hundred other causes of accident. It is said the town can't build a Hall, because "It can not do this, and It can not do thai." Old it never strike any one that "an not'' is merely nn obstacle? Remove the "nots" and y u havo "can." Said Napoleon, " Noth ing U impossible- to him who thinks so." Again are hoard the clear, musical notes of the "Cardinal red bird," that most delightful of all thu snwg birds of early spring. Though very wild, they are easily encouraged to remain in and around town, so long ns tho bo)8 do not throw, uoy tho gunners shoot, at them. Vho,r,Jses broom corn in Holt? Broom corn is going 'to- revolutionize (tho world. Three hundred bushels of seoil per aire! One half makes tho 'jinost flour in the world. Tho other half 's thu best feed for cows, ho8, etc. A now process of grinding tho seed has been found. "Chanty begins at home," says the skin flint, and buttons up his pockets. His homo is within his breeches. "Char ily begins at home," sn)H Urn truly be nevolent person, meaning by homo his neighborhood; and, wlion ho Is naked to contribute to tho heathen of tar off lands, sees first that there are no suffer ing one" nearer at hand. As spring opens, hundreds of our people are, as usual, watihing for news from tho WVt and Northwest. A special feature of this paper, It Is desired, shall be news from every Ter ritory and S,tnto towards ,tho 'setting sun. Friends having news from friends out West, will oblige us by giving in the Items of generul Interest. Decidedly, among tho most elegant ..ii tii nnnntrv nowsnaners on our vory largo list of exchanges, Is "The Purifier" of Pluttsburg, according to our notions. In tho quality of tho pa. per, the typographical execution and tho selection of matter, thero seems nothing left undone to pleaso, amuse and Instruct tho readers. Kvcrv dweller in Holt county Is In- tercted m tho Barge navigation of our or mot rlvurs. ' Hereafter prices will rule us high at St Louis as at Chicago, and hlcher, In consequenco ot tho utilizing This means ten cent more ner bushol for wheat, and better nrlooa fnr Com. WO OWO this to tllO genius and energy of ono man, Capt Eads. Those whijhope high waters may bo tireventcd by tie alternate thawing and froozlng, are liable to be disappointed if such trcrniwMpus snftv tills ns tha of last week continue to follow upon nvnrr short thawing spell. Unpre eedonted as Is tho vast acuumulatlnn of unil snow abovo us, It Is increased now every week, according to reports, So look out-yon who aro interested. TheEdltor of tho "Maryvllle We .,i,iio..n(i u fismiv. He has hoard n bird sing pe-wo," and declares bean tlfnl weatb r is on hand. "Ono swal low does not mnko a spring," nor In every bird that sings "pe-woo" a Powee blrU.

Miss C. A. Wright will learn some thing to her interst by calling at this olueo. And acatn moro snow. On Monday morning a very heavy fall began, lasting all day. Mr. J. It. Blink of the Mnund City News gave us a call last Saturday. Glml to see him mid hope to reciprocate ere long. Her. Blanchnrd returned from Kansas last week.

Wo really did not expect our paper to arrive in timo this week. But hare it is, ns if nothing hnd occurred. - A letter from A. Klipiiol represents him ns ruined pecuniarily. A lake overflowed and destroyed a very costly ditch, his solo dependance. As he says: "Weeati nnt flay hero and wo can't get away." Heavy as was tha storm of Wed nesday night, it was worse north of us. Hero abo.it three inches of snow fell, but in Iowa, Nebraska, Wisconsin and II moli tho fiill was from throe to six feet on a level. It began at Umaha at 'I P. M., but did not reach hero till 6 P. M. Tito mild weather of Tuesday ami Wednesday last, during which the mer cury ranged :ih high :ir of, on Wednes day morning changed to a strong north west breeze, and, by evening, a high gale and tremendous snow storm, with mercury away down to 18 above zero. Tho report that a poor woman died at a houso next the Fair Ground leaving a child for somo ono to adopt is incorrect. A lady died thero leaving a child ami her hut-hand, well able to take earn of thorn both, and he is per fectly able to seo after his own child. Tho husbnnd was greatly indignant at tho report. In our young days there were somo beautiful names forgirls In common use. There was Mary, Jane, Ann, Eliza, Loulza, Dull, Susanna, etc. A woman numod Jennie Lind camo to Ameiiea to sing, during tho '40s. From the day she arrived, all those beautiful names vanished, and, instead, we hare had, ever since, nothing but Jennie, Mollie, Sallle, Susie, Lizzie, Belhe. Nannie, Kittle. Sniftle, Snufllo, Cabbie, Foolie, etc. Oh, for a change! Correspondents general') have ob served our rotpie-t to be brief; writu plainly on ono side ot thu paper only, and avoid personalities. There is one more request. Do not give long lUts of all who nttend a patty, a wedding, etc. This Is a growing evil. Every' littlo gathering hns a newspaper writer who gives cvory name Life Is too short, space too brief, to allow this. Since tho flood, people's lives havo been short ened. "Remember tho Flood," and be brief, Frank Leslie's Sunday Magazine for March is ono of remarknblo nv cellence, and the new editor, Rci Mr. Taylor, has entered most successfully for the edification and entortainmciit ot his readers. There Is, as ho roiuarks, "something for ovcrbody, of whatsoverr class, or ijj whatever ago. Among the distinguished contributors are the Revs. I. M. Whltoe, It. C. noughtan, W. T. W-vlie. T. H.

Moulton, etc. The open ing nrticle by the editor, "Our Homo Heathen," is highly Interesting, uud equally so Is "Scenes ou tho Danube,' byA. Gucrnsoy; both are finely illust rated. But it is impossible to convey In a.brlcf notice any Idea of the rich literary and artistic feast prepared by the odltor. Thore are l,8 quarto pages and over 100 engravings.

The Savannah Reporter heartily sect. nds our remarks in favor of the es tablishment of a Juvenile Reform School, for young offenders. Mr. Daniel Halm was thrown from his mule, as hu was going home from Frest, lnd Wednesday, and consider ably brubed up; so much so, that he has had to keep his bed for several days.

It will pay to ? o a long way to sec their stock before buying. It is complained by several that stock runs at large too much over this town site. Certainly if any ordinance should be strictly enforced, it is thu one that prohibits stock from running at large, If one or two aro allowed, this privilege, the rest of us suffer for it. A complimentary reception was giv en by the ladles of the Union on the oc casion of the removal of iwoof its mem pers Mrs. T.J.Peters anil Mrs. Fred erick. It was a most pleasant gather inir, with music and supper. The-o In dies will miss the .delightful intercourse enjoyed through the Union. J Tim Atchison Democrat says that j there is moro advertising done in "l.'n-! el Charley Funding's old corn Held" ! than by the bu-iuess men of Bock Port. Perhaps they are like some of our Oregon merchants, they don't want their business affairs made too public. White Cloud is seiionsly gassing about putting up an Opera House. If thu el izons will buy a thniiKiud dol ars wortli ot tickets for the first shows, conceits, etc., to be glen In It, after It is put up. and the town will advance one thousand dollars for rent for tvn years for Council rooms, then it is to hu put up right away. Wo niav be certnln of sudde'i bliz znrds following upon every warm spell this spring, according to the law of storms. Warm air goes up Into the "ky and cold air rushes down from eo'tl regions to fill the vacuum. So much cold Is now stored up uoith t lint it must rush down.
