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

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

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

Miss was adopted on Wednesday by
Mrs. Lou Gibson, where she will re

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. The demand
for provisions is mcrraitng eve y year
n.l the number of hors lo Mnt'"hler
this winter season jvill be hundreds of
thousand shoit.
