OtiKtio.v, Mo., February '11. 188:1. HniToit Tin: Cou.vrv Pa run: I am frequently asked many questions in re lation to tho practice In thu Probate Court, tonus of court, otc, etc. Perhaps It will l.n of soma Interest to tho readers of I'm: Corxrv P.um'.u to ho advi-ed In regard to some ot the regulations, and requirements of this CO -in.

At ad journed terms there will be no docket made ou, and of eour.se, nouo pub. Sished. Court will hohl onu or two days, depending upon tho amount of liit-Ino.ss to be transacted. Tim law requires each adm'nistrator, executor and guardian to inako his set tlement on tho day on which such set tlement is docketed, unless continued for good cause. This rule will lie rig idly and .vrictlv enforced; and If such administrator, executor or guardian fails to appear on the day on which lie is required to appear, tho settlement will be continued until tho'next regular term, and a citation will issue; of course whore there is good cause sliowtiforiiotiiia-.iiii.' settlement, the case will bu continued without any peualtv; hut such ndinlnistrator, execu tor or guardian must be present or rep resented iu ionic way iu court to at tend to such bust. less I find that ad ministrators, executors and guardians, in man; instances, pay little or no at tuiitiou to their duty, and tho strict ic qulrcinent of tlio law in inaMng their settlements. They seem to think it is of no consequent"; whether they appear on tlio day on which their settlement is docketed, or whether they appear at all. This is a mistake, which doubtless will cost .some ono trouble and moii?y. At nil regular terms, all bu-iiiiuss nt which this court has jurisdiction, may ho trans acted.

Adjourned terms aro hold expressly to transact business that cannot well bo postponed until regular term, and to accomuio- date all persons having bu.sle?s iu this 1 court, and to avoid, as far as pos-ible, tho transaction of business in vacation, Many seem to think that all 111 inoys allowed, or paid out 011 allowances and demands, pass through tho Probate Judge's hands. Such, I am t-orry to say, is not tho case. I havo nothing to do with receiving and paying out mon ey allowed 011 demands, I simply pass upon tlio fact or question, whether the demand shall bo allowed or not ; henco all persons requesting 1110 to "pleaso send iio my money, etc ," can savo themselves stationery and bad thoughts whou I fail to respond I am in tecoipt daily of accounts and notos to bo pro bated,and three-fourths of thorn are not in shapo to bo probated, and must bo turned for correction, or placed away Iu the office to bo delivered to tho owner when called for, with tho information that tlio demand was not allowed; and to bo answered, "that is ttrango." All demands must bo sworn to by owner ; accounts must bu provon to tho satis faction of tho court or jury, and by proof otitsido of tho original creditor.

Tim spirit ot Saddueces is still abroad; rich lollued, cultured unbelief is sometimes the bitterest of all foes of a bolievinir, earnest church. God has unseen helpers to whom daikne.ss is as the light, and prison doors aie no bar. 5 The apost'es were not roeued from pri-011 that they might have an easier time. They were to ro straiffht out to meet fresh perils. Their rest nnd reward were not hero. Why should we look for ours heivP 6.
