LOCAL AND COUNTY. Thfi Murder Epidemic. Another Man MllleU lit Tbli County. Lust Saturday afternoon another of those horrible scenos, tha violent taking of human lilc, was enaoted in this county, a short distonco from Troy. A tuuu named John II. Kearns, who was in tho employ of Mr. VauNesn, bridgo and 'tie contractor on tho St. Lorn and Koo &uk railroad, loft Troy for tho works in 'toxicated ; nbout two miles from town ho ruat'Juhn Younj;, and carolessly asked "him if ho "had any fish for sale," when Young replied, "Not to such a d d Tool ns you." Kcarns said he wouldn't rtako that, and dismounting from his horse approachod and struck Young, "when the latter plunged his pocket-knife 'into Kcarns, making a fatal gash near the region of the heart, from which death en sued in a few minutes. Young was ar rested, mid is undergoing an examination hefure Justices David Shcltoo and W. T. Harris, at the court houso in thi place. This is tho fifth caso of murder or homi cide that has occurred in Lincoln county within tho short period of ona year, and iu only onco caba has tho murderer been convicted by tho law, and then only sen tenced to a short term of two years in the penitentiary. Tho result of this is, human life is becoming more and more insecure, and unless the law is more rig idly enforced in such cases, it will soon be that every man will havo to carry his life in his own hands and a revolver in his pocket. The killing of a fellow beiug is justifiod only in cases of self defense, but in this day the law is evaded by tech nicalities, pleas of insanity, self defense when tho life of the murderer was notcn dangored,und the crinio has becomeso pop ular that it is beginning to bo considered brave and luudable to murder a man. Not only is this tho case iu Lincoln county, but it is so all ovor the country. Only tho other day, iu St. Louis, a man named J. II. Fore, who assassinated his brother-in-law in cold blood in that city about a year ago, was ucquitod on the plea of insan ity. 1'audemonium is full of such insan ity. If we have laws let them be re spected ; if not, publish the fact, so that men may prepare to protect themselves Ki.kction for fccuooL Trustees. The election I'urtchool trustees of this sub district, last Saturday, resulted in the election of Messrs. L. J. Garrett, John .McDonald, and James M, McLcllun. There wero ono hundred and twenty-six votes polled, tho largest ever cast under tho present law for school trustees in this place. Of these, Mr. McDonald received 111), Mr. Garrett 94, Mr. McLellan 77, Mr. V. SI. Harlan 01 ; boattering 17. A proposition was also submitted to extend the time of holding publio school four months, muking tho term ten instead of six months. It was this question that called out so many voters, many boing unwilling to increase their taxes to defray the expenses of tho additional four months. On this question tho vote was as follows : For 10 months school, 07 ; againstlO months school, 53. So hercaftor the term will bo tour months longer than heretofore. The proposition in regard to tho purchaeo of (Jhristiau Instituto for tho purposo of establishing a public graded school was not voted on, tho trus tees of that institution concluding to withdraw it. Does It Pay? When mankiud em bark iu any undertaking, tho question apt to bo uppermost in tho mind is, W ill it pay ? Wo publish in the Herald this week a new advertisement of Messrs. Cako & Rogers' tannery, boot, shoo, har ness, collar and saddle establishment. Sinco the formation of their copartner ship, they havo boon liberal udvertiscrs, their bill with this office alone boing something ovor 885 for tho past year. It must puy them, elso they would not por biot in laying out this amount to advertise their goods, and wo aro coufidont it does pay them ; for thoir trado is increasing .daily, and last weok their cash sales for tho six days ending Saturday amounted to over S70 a day, together with largo .sales on timo. Wo venturo tho usscrtion that there is not another business houso in the town that can couut up as muoh tor oo week. This success we aro freo .to admit is partly duo tho cleverness and general popularity of tho gentlemen -composing tho firm, their satisfactory work and low prices, but wo know thoy will alio freely admit that it is partly .duo thoir judicious system of advertis ing.

A short time sinco he sold hie intorest in Mohr It Co.'s grocery store, and now be is foeibro ho publio sgain itrt a lafgo stook of aotions, grooeriee, boots and shoes, eta Sno his card in the local colu runs of this gape. Thk Tnov Dispatch. -With the prosent week our noighbor closes tho first year of iu existence, tho most criti cal period generally in tho establishment of a newspapor. In that timo, although wo huvs sparred to some extent with eaoh other through our columns, to the unini itiated opparently with bitter feeling, we havo maintained friendly personal rela tions. This is ono of tho onigmas in tho lives of publishers. The Dispatch says it will enter upon its second year with much brighter prospects than illumined tho first, and with an experienco that will add to its intorest; and its editor truth- fully acknowledges that he, in the outset. "had not tho remotest idea of the labor and responsibility of tho position." It may seem an easy matter to edit and con trol a nowspapor, especially a small county sheet, but whoever undertakes it will find, like our neighbor, that tho rospon sibility and labor Is greater than they over dreamed it was. If this fact wero mora generally known, tlro would bo less li.ult finding when any number of a paper does not coiiie up to tho expectations of its patrons. But with all this, thcro is a fascination about tho lifo of an editor that leads him on, and on, and causes him to rack his braiu through years of oven unrequited toil. The panorama of the world's doings that is daily passing before him, iu tho hugo pi lo of exchanges that (low into hissanctum weekly, trausfixeshu attention, nod ho becomes such a devoted admiror of the over changing lights and bhudes, that it would be like parting with u treasured frionJ to givo up tho life be- f'uro him. But it is a laborious lifo ucv- urthless, and the reputed fashioners of publio opinion uro more its slaves than its masters. AGRICULTURAL AND HORTICULTURAL Mketinu. I'orsons interested in the above pursuits uro requested to meet at tho court hou-o iu this placo ucxt Satur day, 20th lust., for the purposo of organ izing an agricultural and horticultural club. Organizations of this character aro forming all over tho country, the object beiug n discussion of the different modes of culturo and an exchange of views and axperienco. A great deal may be learned by such associations, and wo would advise our farmer friends, not only ii this immediate vicinity, but all over tho county, to form clubs for the promo lion of their calling. Groceries and confections at Crump & Win" s. Mr. A.J. Rcid of the Louisiana Jour nal was in town last Saturday, and called at our offico. Mr. Reid edits one of the best papers in northeast Missouri, and its success shows that tho people of l'iko county appreciate it. W. U. MaFarlaud, Esq., from Clarks villo, has located among us for tho pur poso of practicing law. His card will bo found iu this paper. lie is an euor gcticand talented young gentleman, and comes among us with tho good wishes of many of his l'iko county friends. 1'riuts Wing's. mlling off fust at Crump & Will soon receive a fresh sup- G.

Mr. Dunn is woll known in tho eastern portiou of our county as a gentleman of strict in tegrity, and wo wish him tho success in his calling that ho deserves. The Industrial Acje. Wo have re ceived a copy of this newly established paper, published by tho Industrial Ago Printing Company, St. Louis, Mo. It contains sixteen largo quarto pages, is neatly printed, and ovorflows with gen eral intelligence of tho various industrial pursuits. It is well worth the subscrip tion prico, 82 a year, and certainly ought to mcot with unbounded success. At Cost and Less Crump & Wing havo a largo assortment of alpaca, de laine, bcrcgo, challi, and other dress goods, which they will sell at cost and less than cost. Now is your time to get a good bargain.

Only five years ago the past fall and winter, Mr. A. 31. bhults, tbo proprietor, erected a small houso and moved into it on tho first of January, since which time with limited means, ho has swept awuy 75 or 80 acres of heavy timber, und covored some 20 acres of it in nursery stock, and this will bo enlarged to 30 acres the present season.
