Hie deputy interna! revenue collec tor for this district, who has his office in St. Joseph, has received official notice from tho treasury department that the time has been extended for returning sworn statements on the income tax from March 4 to April 15.1895.

The fire caught in the grass from the south bound afternoon train. Evorytbtng being so drv aid the grass high, with a stiff breeze from the south, nothing could be saved from tho devouring ele ment. There was no insurance on the house, and wo hnve not learned if there was any on the wood.

He has never failed to pay his subscription in advance al ways about two weeks prior to the date. He is one of Holt county's very best cit izens and is also one of the pillars of the Republican party of the county, and a man. every inch of him.

Will Kollraor has rented the Jim, McXuIty fsrm in the northern part of the county. We are sorry to learn that he lost his tine gray horse one day last weK. finding him deadlin a ditch. The cause of death he does not know. Indeed we wore truly glad to see Ksq. Bragg on our streets one day last week, looking quite well after a long. serious illness. We have no better cit izen than Mr. Bragg, and trust that ho may be spared to us for a long time yet. We acknowledge a very pleasant call from Mrs. J as. A.

Another big deal in real estate shows itself in the real estate tiansfera this week. From the Weekly Mimeo graph we learn thut T. W. McCoy sold Sib acres of his bottom land on Big Tarkio, northwest of Bigelow, to Daniel tier, or lowa, ror eil.yo. John M. Hibbard has sold his farm in Nodaway township, to a Mr. Pixler of Andrew countv, and John now talks of removing to Oklahoma.

Another article rrom "A warmer on the subject of good roads will be found on our inside pages, nnd our read ers will find the articlejevery way worthy a careful perusal. And while we are on the subject of good roads, we believe our road overseers, in connection with the county court, should hold a conven tion sometime this month, at either Forest City er Bigelow, and discuss road making, before the busy season is upon them. The county is now divided in but sixteen districts, and these over seers have the expenditure of several thousand dollars, and by their coming together they will doubtless learn some thing that will be of benefit to them.

The general sentiment of tho teach era of the county seem to he in fnvor of Prof. F. Li. Maxwell, for re election to the county snerintendency of our schools. He has given universal satis faction in this position, ns ho has given as the head of tho Craig schools. We hope the teachers will take formal action in this matter at their next meeting, Twenty seven mavors of cities of third and fourth classes throughout the state met nt Jefferson City recently nnd drafted resolutions asking the General Assembly to make a change which will enable these cities to increase tho pres ent levy, in order that they may bo enabled to huild electric light plants, water works, etc. It will require a con current resolution asking for a change in the constitution. We are glad indeed that tho bill allowing circuit judges actual travel ing expenses, over and above their salaries, has passed the lower house of our legislature, nnd believe it will pass the senate. Our circuit judges are among the poorest paid public sorvants of the state. It does seem to us that the services of a man who knows enough law to make n good circuit judge, ought to be worth 53,000 n jear, and he should not be required to pay his traveling ex oenses out of this. The Eureka correspondent in tho Maitland Herald last week: Mr. Mc- Ginnis had quite a fire last Wednesday morning. A fire was kindled in the heatinz stove, and shortly after the house was discovered to bo on tire. Tho fataily endeavored to extinguish the flames, but the tire had got under such headway that they gave up nnd began .removing things from the burning build ing. They did not take timo to go through the door, but kicked out a couple of windows and threw out thu household goods in piles. After this they climbed up into tho loft and smothered tho tire out with a piece of wet enrpet.

It ia often said thnt a misfortune is a blessing in disguise. This has proven truo for Corning since their disastrous lire a couple or years ogo. The Dankers Bros.aud F. W. Walters have each erect- d large business houses. List year was erected a fine brick school house and the German Lutherans hnvo erected the most commodious and beautiful brick church in the county, costing nearly live thousand dollars. Tbere have been uite a number of fine frame and brick residences built. In fact. Corning is leading in the way of improvements and is becoming one of tho best business towns in tho county. Oren & Meyer, of New Point, are now reidy for the spring trade, with ono of the largest nnd best selected stock) of gnneral merchandise to be found in tho countv. To be convinced of this fact, is to call and see them and iei; the stacks upon stacks of goods being daily unpacked nnd placed upon icir shelves and counters. In drees goods they have purchased largely, and of tho very latest styles nnd patterns. 1 hev are going to make special induce ments in all lines this year, and espe- llly in their dress goods department.

As yet, rrom all that we can learn. e believe the peach crop is safe; the conditions for freezing the peach germ are not favorable for such a calamity. It is true the mercury has went as low :i3 12 and II degrees below zero, but for tunately, there was no rain or moisture which to saturate the buds or germs. ad there been, the germs would doubt- esa have suffered to a great extent. Ac cording to observations of years, if rain should fall suflicient to caturate the trees anu buds, nnd a fall in the tlier mometer would reach 15 degrees below zero, such conditions would, beyond uestion, kill tho peach germs.
