On Wednesday morning ol. last week the body of a boy was found in the wood near Rock Port, and it was ascertained to be the body of Johnny McDowell, aged about fourteen years, who so mysteriously disappeared from that section last July. His bead was badly crushed and everything pointed to murder, and a coronet's inquest was held winch resu'ted in the arrest of Thomas Hams and Arthur Blake two young lads who weie lastsoen wilh the murdered boy. It is supposed that money was the tnue of tho deed as young McDowell was supposed to have some fifteen or twenty dollars with him when he disappeared. The evidence is considered strong ng.iiust Harris and Blake On Wednesday morning about 4 oclock Dr. Goslin was awakened from his slumber by what he thought at the time, to be the parsing of a vehicle and in a slioit time he thought he heard footsteps on his sidewalk immediately in trout of his res deice He felt sine ol being exiled for a professional visit, ai.d wailing short time and no call being made he ;ot out of bed, opened bU front window, and he at once dis covcicd an object of some I-in'! on tho green suiiiu immediately in tiontof his window. The Doctor went out and examined the object and found it to be a IinKian object, "nicely pi.cked." He it once picked it up and returned to his bedroom where in company with his wife u. examination was held, which revealed a nice, sweet, well developed little girl baby, apparently about ten days old. The little one was ue'l cloth ed aud around it for an outside wrap ping was a new linen lap duster, used for riding. Who the cruel mother is, is unknown, but its being left to the care of mother Goslin, Is certainly for tunate fur the little loudling The little Miss was adopted on Wednesday by Mrs. Lou Gibson, where she will re ceive over care and attention, and bo sure of a good home. Our roads are, in certain localities, being worked in a veiy sensible man ner, while in other districts there has, as yet, been little done. There is every argument in favor of good roads and good bridges in every part of lha conn- j ty. Tax payers should work out poll j tax and the road lax assessed against the land and the personal property they own. The poll tax is a matter to be at tended to by the overseer. He mu-t see that the same is worked out, but lax payers cannot get credit from coun ty collector for amount of poll tax worked out. Tax pajers should also work out road taxassesred against their land and personal property. To illus trate: If your road tax on road and personal property amounts to $3 00 and you receive receipt from oyerseer tor $3.00 or less, you will on preenution of same to collector when paving your taxes, receive ctedit tor 8 mi amount worked oat"; but if you have a receipt for more than the road lax chargetl again-t you, you will lose the excess of the $3.00. So by worting out the amount ot road tax charged against yu you will receive the proper credits, it you will observe the above. Let us have good roads we want to encour age you in the work.

' The Jtlnriictsv Cattle Dull receipts and a alow Mirket expresses the sitc.ition.lho past week. Heavy native cattle under the influence light a-rivali wcra perhaps a little firmer, but ranre stock which now constitute three-fourths of the cattle supply were slow bale a,nd weak. Butchers and cahners arc still the only buyers for them and will doubtless xe -main so until frost falls, as feeders seem afraid of them. Hence the more west ern ranchmen, string out their hip men's the better. But while western stockers and feeder were neglected navtives were m bettor demand than for sooio weeks, and prices of thee ai of b:st beef steers were rather firm. Cow show no change and bulls aud oxen continue dull and low. Milch cows also slow sale. In Chicago as Kansas City the market was an in;tjff..rent one, but as tho receipts w-ru lighter all raund, tho feeling is that we aie on tha ' verge of a mors healthy market. Clos ing quotations. Extra fine stee.-s, r. 1.300 and over $4.25 5LG5. Good,,, av. 1300 to 1450 83.7G 31 25. Hoos Lighter receipts and a strong er market was bad tli past week at all the leading western centers, and with the falling off in the supply the quality of the h:gs seemed to improve. At Kaus'is City the arrivals lor the week were 4,09 J less than the wa?k previous yet greater than the corresponding week last year by 3,900 hogs. Packers were principal buyers, there being bnt lew shippers willing to tolinw the ad vance. The result was a marked fall ing off in the order tradu But whi'e piices were advanced qitte noticably the early part of our rcyiuw wek, Tuesday witnessed a reaction and uiueh of the improvement the early part ot the wceK was lost. There is an evident effort on the part of packers to keep piices down, but as there is a marked shot tage in the hog crop.they aro afraid to take any decided stand and feeders may rest ensy ai to the future market. Ot tourse break through a combination mny be accom pluho.l put so it will only be temporary. Cheap hogs can not.be nmde on 40c coin. A proiniuent buyer, a few day ngo, while contending that lower value would obtain during the early part of the winter season, thought Hint hogs the last part of the wintei would reach 87.00. Now if hogs are going to sell at 7.00 in February there no sense in tlmir selling below 8G.0U in November. But the maintaning of values will de pend much upon the nnnner in which hog are market-d. 1 1 matters not if corn goes lo 40 and 50 cent per bushel, feed your hog t-i mitusiiy a even at these prices it will pjy better 5o feed it than to sell it as grain, and don't allow, yourself lo become c.ired by any tcni poiary hill in the ling market, : the lutiiie i full of pioniue.
