The realestate business in Holt county for the year 1895. has been butter than it has ever been known before, and we do not belieye that another county of the same size in the state can show so favoratle a record. Following the period of general business depression and the unfavorable reaction in values in the large cities. Holt county real estate has continued the most popular in this section of the greatest state on earth. Throughout the entire year there has been a continous, uniform demand, and also a wonderful advance in realty values. Elsewhere in this issue will be found a very elaborate table showing the weekly tranactions in real estate in the county during iheyear, and to Mr. W. H. Richards, the abstracter and real estate agent, of this city, are we indebt ed for this excellent piece of work. The high standing of Mr Kichards in the business world and his thoroughness iu real estate matters adds character and reliability to the showing which will be a source of pritle to Holt county people, Tha table shows that the value of war ranty and quit claims that passed are placed at nearly one million of dollars, while the aggregate transactions foot up the astounding figures of $2,10S,823. The farm mortgages foat up 3141,33!; and the release S3IG.1S7, an increaseof the mortgage indebtedness of only 74, 8G9; this increase has been caused by renewals and to secure balances on Durchase money, and not by financial embarrassments, but by parties tncreas mg their landed possessions. Another feature of the exhibit that is astonish ing is in the chattle mortgages filed; these amounted to ttaJW.yu, wnuo tne releases were only $12,131. It is esti mated by Mr. Richards that fully illo, 000 of this amount was created (in ac couut of cattle feeding interests, while the remainder was create J to secure miscellaneous store accounts, etc The statement is highly isiteresting and it is worthy & place in your scrap book. State Veterinarian. At the forth coming meeting of the State Board of Agriculturo many im portant matters of business will have to be attended to, having for their object the best good of the agricultural and live stock interests of the state. One of these is the selection of a state Veterin arian, and it behooves us to secure in that regard the best service obtainable. Missouri is an important member in a number of great states, and should be represented by a man of training, ex perience, and of excellent judgment. In other words, the state should place itself in a position, when called in con sultation, to command respectful at tention in a council of scientific men. Should the present incumbent not be again chosen, The Sestinel, would submit the name of John S. Meyer, of St. Joseph. A man of mature age, good judgment, years of professional experi ence, a thorough graduate, enjoying the highest standing in his own community as well as the entire northwest portion of our 6tate, and in the profession as a highly successful practitioner. We know nothing derogatory to the present incumbent, and should the board con template making u change, we trust it will consider the name ef Dr. Meyer and nnnfnr this honor uoon him. The posi tion is a very important one to our live stock interests, ana age ana experience are qualifications that should not be overlooked by the board. WHAT HAPPENED.

St. Joseph is mentioned as the prob able place to hold the next State Re publican convention. It is devoutly to be hoped that St. Joseph will secure this prize. She is admirably equipped for such a Catherine. With hotels ample to comfortably entertain all visitors, and with Tootle's oDera house for convention t-all. thnre is abundant evidence that the convention should go there. Thern in no finer onera house in the state or the great west than the Tootle. There will be a lively enthusiastic and large nrnwd at the next Republican state con vention, and we firmly belive St, Joseph can rovallv and will hospitably enter tain all who may attend. The Platte purchase is a large Re publican field, and should be recognized bv the Republican central committee. St. Joseph is accessable. She has great railroad facilities that permeate the en tire state. Let us in the entire north west portion ot our Btate extend to her our moral and political support. Sh has the Drooer facilities and people to insure a most suitable place far our next convention. The editor of The Sentinel is at pres ent a member of the state committee. and he assures the people of St. Joseph tbat he will most heartily do all in his power to bring the Republican state convention to that city. The Bond Bill. Last Saturday the Republicans in the house carried their bond bill by a vote of 170 to 136. While only one Democrat (Hutcheson of Texas.) voted for the bill many Republicans voted for the bill. One George Crows there walk ed up under the lash of old Czar Reed's whip and voted for more bonds. This bill of course is a humbug, as thero is no probability of it passing the senate or being signed by the president. Platte City Landmark. Oh dear oh dear Another case or You'ill be damned it you do, you'll be damned if you don't We are rather of the opinion that Mr. Crowther is amply able to take care of himself without sny Bdyice from the Landmark. And the St. Josedh News comes along and snarls because the con Kreesman from the Fourth district fail ed to vote at all on the bond bill. As this class of newspapers were never his friends in any particular we are rather ot the opinion that it matters little to Mr. Crowther or Mr. Crowtber's friends what they think of his conduct or his vote upon any question while he oc cupies a seat in the LIV congress. We think his career when it is finished will compare very favorably with his pre decessor while a member ot the Llll congress. The Burden Still Heavier.

Our own beautiful little city faces tbe New Year with confidence, ns she looks hack uihmi 181k with pride. Th year which has just panned emphasized in a remarkable degree the fact that Oregon had emerged from the terrific' strain of the previous year in better shape than manv cities of its size. Ihe year which has itist been ushered in is full of as surances of continuance and an increase of the com! fortune which has attended the city during the past year. There in let.- destitution in our city than ever Ix'fore; there have been fewer men out of eimIovmer.t during the enr just clot-ed; there nre more indications for a nrosDorioiis year in every respect than over confronted the people of our city un they paused at this season of the 011r and inventoried their tangible and iiitancibte assets. LtH Lave water works, electric lights and a motor linn, all three before Ue comber. 31. 189u ' Monarch. Mr. Oppligger is on a visit here from his Kansas home. Everybody is feeling jolly since the adyect ot the new year. Our L. E. L. roll shows 4t mem bers, an increase of 1C 6ince the new year came. Jacob Ward is about to move to Monarch. Jake knows where to find good company. James Garner looks rather demure; we believe he has the problem of life be fore him matrimony. The air is fragrant with coming or ange bloom; there will soon be several young brides to try tbe realitios ot life. ' Mr. Aaron Bullock has taken up his residence among us, and has been duly welcomed by the elite ot the neighbor hood. Miss Stella Barbour is proving her self to be an efficient instructor, by the advancement she has made in our school Monarch is one of tbe finest places to go for splecdid entertainments, so says Mr. Lee Hughes, and Mr. Hughes ought to know. George Hunt, of bunny bide.is slowly mending, after a serious attack of ty phoid fever, showing tbe skill ot our county physician. Dr. Bullock. ,-Jlr. John rveriin is preparing to move to Illinois; we hope be may meei with as many friends as he leaves Be hind, for our society will miss Mr. and Mrs. Kerlio. The L. E. Li. eocietv cave another one of their enjoyable entertainments. under tbe supervision ot Aire. o. u. Boyd, and it was pronounced to be the grandest event ot the new year. The Davidson band furnished the music. and we venture to say their equal can not be found in licit county, 'ine en tertainment consisted ot songs, declama tions, select readings and dialogues, and was duly appreciated, especially the Lu E. Li. rallying song, composed by Mrs. Bovd. Among tbe noticeable ones speaking, Mr. Bullock rendered a splen did declamation; .Mrs. Boju. airs, rdiza Smith, Miss Otie Llewellyn's song com posed by her mother, was a grand suc cess; in fact, it was a decided victory for the L. E. L. Boctety to look upon with pride. They expect to give another one February 22nd. Come and see whr.t home culture can do, and we believe L. E. L. badges could not be better worn than bv the present owners of them. Patti. Karital Bliss. New Years Dav was made memorable at the house of Mr. and Mrs. Kathbun, near Preemption, 111., by the raarrage or their daughter Elizabeth, to Mr. S. A. Meyer ot Elmgrove, Mo. Just at high noon the bridal couple entered the parlor to tho strains of tbe wedding march, played by Miss Adaline, a sister of the bride, anJ in the presence of a number of the bride's nearest relatives. Bnd the parents of the groom. Mr. and Mrs. George Meyer, the twain were made one by Kev. (5. W. Kling, pastor, M. E. church, Preemption, after congratula tions a sumptuous dinner was served, which was enjoyed by all. They were the recipients of many useful and valu able present. Tho bride was attired in a beautiful traveling costume of navy blue cloth. The groosi wore the con ventional black. The bride is one of Preemption's most brilliant and intelligent young ladies of amiable deposition, a most chaste Christian character and an earnest church worker. Her place will be dif ficult to fill in the Sabbath school and in church work generally. We shall misa her, but she will be an ornament to the society and a blesxingtothe com munity into which she goes. Her Sunday school class c imposed of over 40 were at tht depot to bid her adieu as they left on the aftern on train for their future home near Forbes, Mo. Mr. Meyer is a young man of most excellent qualities and a Christian gentleman. He won golden opinion from all who met him while among us. We bespeak for Mr. and Mrs. Meyer a happy and prosperous future. The happy couple arrived at their home on Thursday last, and on the fol lowing day. Friday, January 2d. an ele gant reception whs tendered them by the groom's parents, and was one of the most enjoyable antl elegant in its de tails ever "nttened by us in Southern Holt.

May the'r life be one contin'mus sunshine, and may father and mother Meyer be sared to enjoy the plt-amre and com fort that these two young people will bring to the-n. for long, long years to come.
