A gianco at tho premium list of tlio approaching St. Joseph Exposition Is sutllelcnt to ituro ovcii'the most Incred ulous of tho unqualified and unpnrallel success of that event. Tho races prom ise to bo extraordinarily fin, and every feature of tli greatest agricultural, me chanical ami live stock aggregation in the west will receive thu most minute intention.

Tho mysterious disappearance of John O'Fallon, our DcputyShoiiff and Constable, has created a good deal of surprise and comment In our midst. Ho left about two weeks ago and has not been heard ot but onco sluco.

Sheriff Tool of Nodaway county had a barn to burn up for him In which was nlso burned n valuable team. His dwelling was also In great danger, but was put out. It is thought tho fire was tho work of an Incendiary. A very sharp sharper, is now visit lug somo parts of tho country mid swindling tho farmers by sellliie; them a pakago guaranteed to kill potato bugs. The directions nro not to open tho package until tho contents nro to bo used, by which time tho seller lias skipped. On opening the package It is found to contain two blocks of wood with directions to place a bug on ono block and mash It witli tho other. A glorious rain shower visited ns last Friday night which was the most welcome rlsitor wu ever saw in this section of tho country. It would havo done a great deal more good had it como about ten days sooner, but it was thankfully received nevertheless. Tho corn had about given up tho ghost and everything was parched nud dried up, and Itcanio jut In tlio nlcho of time, to quiet tho fears ol many who anticipated a genuine old-fashliiucd ilei.nili. iim everything looks fresh and green ngain at present.

Tho Savannah Reporter slates that it is informed by Judge Kolloy that Cir cuit Clerk Spnngor writes hiuv that no August term of tho Holt Circuit Court will bo held by reason of the County Court being unable to provide a suitable room for that purpose. Tho Muitlaud Independent states that Judgo Uiadford Informs, Its editor, that Circuit Couit will bo held, as tho County Com t or dered tlio Sheritr to provido rooms. Sheriff Frame says that it is utterly Im possible to secure suitablo rooms for tlio Circuit Court. Now if tho County Court was unable to secure ti ro.ims, how could tho sheriff do so? It is our opinion there will bo no August term of tho Circuit Court. Brown the Counterfeiter. Tho St. Joseph Herald of Wednes day publishes nu account of a confer onco held In that city between Deputy Marshall Elliott and Special-Deputy Long regarding tlio shooting of Ilrown which mention was made of In Tiik Countv Pai'kii. Tho Herald says: During tho progress of this confer onco, tlio fact appeared that Ilrown iiad forfeited his bond of $100, for his up. pearance at Oregon, on charge of stab bing. Mr. Long went to Rulo nud told Drown ho wanted him on that charge, and asked him if ho wits willing to go to Holt comity, which Drown assoulcd to without nny objection. Tho parties erosscd.tho river in a skiff. Upon laud lug at tho Missouri shore, Drown bogau tho assault upon tho oQlcor, in tho manner heretofore rolntcd, with ono of tho oars, and had not tlio olllecr been iirmcd, no doubt lie would havo been very severely doalt with, Ilrown bolng a large muscular man and Long com paratively a small man. Although Mr. Long had n warrant of arrust for Ilrown, on charge of passing mid mak ing counterfeit monoy, this warrant was not served upon Iirown and cut no flguro in tho matter whatever. I'bis statement tho lltrald Is request ed to mako, In order that tho United Statos authorities, as such, may bo sot right. Tlio assault was not mado upon Long as n United States ofllclul, but as a State ollloor. Drown Is now nt his homo In Rulo, rapidly recovering from his Injuries, Onu ball struck him in tlio arm and tlio other In tlio side, tho latter coming In rontact with a rib and glancing olf, doing little damage.

The circumstance of tliu affair iu detail aro about us follows: It seems that the Sheriff had business nt Muitlaud on last Friday which would detain him there until the next day, (Saturday) and consequently told Mrs. Fraino that she would have to remain at homo nlouo until lie got back, uud for her in tlio moaiitiino to keep a watch for thieves or burglars who might give her call nud take advantage of his absence. Everything went well until 12 o'clock Friday night whon Sheriff Frame having finished his business in MaltlaHd sooner than lie expected-returned homo, and not wIMiiug to dis turb his wife's slumbers, procweded cautiously to creep around the back way, when ho was detected by his wife, who immediately reached under her pil- J low, pulled forth a pistol and taking dclihcrato aim at tlio .supposed burglar, . sho fired.
