Mavyvlllo, ns well as most other places Is out of hard coal and almost out of soft, and no hope of a supply, soon. Take our advice in last weeks Issue Nodaway county Is to have a new Court house and Jail, Hoth are badly needed thoro, but hor peoplo wore wise to wait until thoir population justified building something worth while. Press last wock picks out several locals, and manufactures ono or two for us and then says they are false. Wo ran over tho Press to koo if we could find something objectionable, and could'nt find anything. A brhlgo over tho Miesourl Hlvcr is to bo built at Nebraska City this spring. Ily the way wo have it from dipt. Eads direct that next to the St. Louis bridge that at St. Joseph is tho best over the Missouri Klvor.
