An attachment was run on Sheriff Ramsay last week, by F. K. Allen, plaintiff, attaching the funds in his hands from the sa'e of the Moses W. Thompson real estate. Marshal Molter was appointed deputy coroner, in order to be qunlified to serve the attachment on the sheriff, and is the lirst instance of the kind to have occurred for the past twetity-llve years, we believe.

He received a card the other day upon which was written "Anthony Stewart Keeves," a ton, that came to gladden the home of Mr. and Mrs. Mart Keeves, of Savannah, this state. He sends congratulations aod hopes that Mart may continue in well doing for a long, long time. Many of the banks in this jiortion of the state are putting in the latest in the line of computing nnc'iines. It is the very latest invention. It works with a key bo-ird much like a cash reg ister. The machine will add, subtract, multiply, divide, in fact juggle figures in most any way. In footing up a column, all you have to do is to repeat the lines of figures on the key board, touch a button, and there you have the figures and sum all typewritten. On February 2nd prepare to take a squint at the ground hog. The ancient rule will be used by many at this par ticular time which is: If the ground hog comes from his winter home to light and sees his shadow, he will re turn and there will be fix weeks more of bad weather. If he does not sec his shadow, he will remain out and winter has played its highest card for bad, cold weather. It is to be hoped that Mr. ground hog will not see his shadow. Said a teacher to us the other day. j "We have some funny incidents in the school room, and one occurred in my classes that struck me as being one of the best things that I ever heard. We had run across the word hereditary, and it seemed to stump some of the children to define it. Finally one bright boy held up his hand and said that he could il lustrate its meaning and I told him to go ahead. He said that recently he went to buy himself a pair of shoes, and when the clerk looked at his feet he ex claimed: 'Well, I don't know who you are, but I would wager my last dollar that you are the son of Mr. ; naming a certain citizen. The boy said that his feet resembled bis father's and that it was a hereditary trait of the family. I thought ihe illustration a pretty good one.'" The meeting of the newspaper men of Northwest Missouri at St Joseph last week was, in our opinion, the very best and most largely attended of any in the history of the association. The papers read were all of a practical char acter. The strongest feature we thought was "The Question Box," and it brought out many spicy, practical thoughts on the business. The St Joseph Commer cial Club did every thing possible to make the meeting a auccess. Friday evening the editors were favored with a theatre party at Tootle's, and the follow ing day were taken through the packing houses, and given a banquet at the Stock ExchaDge. The party on both occasions was chaperoned by the only Frank Freytag. A meeting of this kind without Mr. Freytag, would be like try ing to render Hamlet with this charac ter being omitted. It was a moat de lightful meeting from beginning to end. on We have purchased the abstracts compiled by Gouv. Morris, since owned by A.
