Cadman has been in our. 'town tho past week canvassing for "Camp boll's New Atlas of Missouri." It is tbo most correct sectional map of the f tato we liavo ever seen, aud on a scale of nix miles to tho inch. The work is of royal folio size, neatly bound, aud con tains a history of t lie state, tngothcr with a general description of its geology, cli matology, agriculture, entomology, to "pography of tho state and description of eaoh county, history aid statistics of our religious denominations, education, rail road statistics, list of post offices, and in fact almost anything you want to know of our rich, broad and growing state. A number of our citizens, appreciating tbe -merits of tbo work, have subscribed for it. Lost and Found. Sovoral months sinco, Mr. Jonathaa Ingram of Waverly towosbip lost a pocket book containing -over ninety dollars, and had abandoned all hopo of ever Gnding it; but a wook or two since a littlo girl of tho neighbor hood, while walking across an old Gold, aw something fluttering iu tho breeze, and on picking it up sho found it to bo a two dollar bill. Sho took it to her mother, who suggested that if sho would return to tbo Gold sho might God more. The little girl did so, and scattered here and there sho picked up tho full amount lost by Mr. Ingram, and found an old pookot book that had burstcd open from exposure to tho weather. Mr. Ingram was notiGod of tho fact, and identified the money. Nono of tho bills were too badly injured to pass readily, which is -somewhat remarkable, considering how long since it was lost, IIo offered the littlo lady 810, but her generous heart would not allow her to accept it, saying "he didn't wjnt anything for doing her duly. Wo failed to loaru her namo. County Couht Items. Wm. A. (lib ' sou was appointed justico of tho pcaco ot Hurricane township. Tho Court appropriated 87,420 to buy oounty railroad bonds for the purposo ol retiring them, Mr. Cako was appointed agont to mako tho purchase Bids wcro received for malting now index of tho records of tho Recorder's office Tho bids were opened yosterday (Tuesday) and for eomo reason unknown to'us, the court rejected all bids and post poncd tho matter indeGnitcly. Last W cdnosday tho court adjourned to tho poor "house, wifli tho condition ol which thoy wcro very favorably impressed Mr. Drown, tho superintendent, has cvi dently managed its affair admirably. Tho farm, containing 1G0 acres, is nearly all fenced in, Mr. J. Brevator of Monroo township made the unprecedented offer to tho court to pay ono half tho cost of a bridge over Hob's creek, on tho Moscow an J Cap-au-Grts road, below the big slough, provided tho court would appropriate tho o'licr half. The court appointed L, C. Wright oaiauilssiuncr to draw up pi mi und apeci Gcations for the bridge, to bo submitted at tho July called term (third Monday), when bids will be advertised for. Tho lottery jury system, under the new law, engaged n portion of the court's timo. A proportionate number of names of tho citizens of each township arc written on strips of paper, and all placed in a hat, or a box, or some convenient receptacle, and "well shakeu before ta ken" out. The clerk then draws out one namo at a time, and woo to tho unlucky follow that falls into his hands for lie has to servo on the jury. This process is kept up until enough are obtained to Gil out the juries. The following arc tho grand and petit juries "drawu" by the new fangled lottery to serve at the fall term of tho circuit court. It will bo observed that by this system the small townships don't always get tho smallest number of jurors : UKAND JUUY. 1 B. F. Elliott, Bedford township. I George A.
