TO THE PUBLIC - We, the undersigned citizens of Jefferson county,
Missouri, have made a careful examination of a Pictorial and Historical
Atlas Map of Monroe county, Illinois, and pronounce it a fine,
interesting and valuable publication, and consider it preferable to any
other form of a county work, and inasmuch as we need a map of Jefferson
county, we hope every individual visited will give it his attention,
examination, and, if possible, his support.

Whereas, my boy, Willie WILLIAMS, aged 14 years, has ran away from me.
I hereby warn all persons to not furnish him any protection or
employment, or I will hold them responsible therefor. Issac P.
S. BRILL, special Dep'y Collector, went to Peter HUSKEY's, last Tuesday,
to either collect Peter's back taxes or levy on his property. Peter met
him at the door with a drawn pistol, and persuaded him to get away. He
went back next morning with sufficient force to take both HUSKEY and his
property, but neither could be found. The law will be enforced, and
such resistance as this will only cause extra trouble and expense to the

Morse's Mills, Mo., Feb. 28th, 1876 - Editor Jefferson Democrat: There
was a meeting of the citizens of Big River township at Bethlehem Church,
on Thursday night, February 24th, 1876, for the purpose of discussing
the "Stock Law:. The meeting was called to order by Wm. BRYAN, who
briefly stated the objects of the same. On motion, Robert WILSON was
chosen president and A.W. WHITSETT secretary. A motion was made and
carried that the chair appoint a committee of two, who, with the
president, should decide the merits of the discussion; and Hon. W.F.
WILLIAMS and T.S. POUNDS, were appointed as such committee. The Stock
Law was then discussed; Florian JENNI, A.W. WHITSETT, B.F.DAVIS, Henry
HUNT and J.J. CARROW speaking in favor of the adoption of the law,
Stephen POUNDS, Michael McKAY, Wm. BRYAN, Rev. Wm. McKAY and S.M.
BARROWS against its passage. After the close of the discussion, the
hour being late, the committee asked that the decision be deferred, so
that the members might have time in which to compare notes and make up
an intelligent decision, which was granted; and the speakers are waiting
in suspense for the result.
Hence I write this note to say that the committee has arrived at the
conclusion that the ablest argument was produced by the parties opposing
the Stock Law. Very Respectfully yours, Wm. BRYAN.
The little stranger at Judge Frank WILLIAMS' that the Judge is so proud
of, is a girl.
We have just learned of th death, in St. Louis, of William SCHNALL(?),
formerly a shoemaker at this place, and well-known to many of our
