WESTERRECK, the Antonia blacksmith, who has a brand new one at his house

Hermann HOFFMANN, one of DeSoto's prominent citizens, died last Monday.
Mr. HOFFMANN was engaged in the business of saloon keeping and was a man
who, by his gentlemanly deportment, made respectable any business in
which he engaged.
We are in receipt of a letter from Constantin MEYER, of the Leavenworth
(Kansas) Soldier's Home, dated February 5th, in which he tells us that
the inmates of that institution have all that could be desired. Their
rooms are excellent, the board of the best, and amusements numerous.
Those who are able to work get some fair pay for their services. He
informs us that old man AHERNS is doing well, being the foreman of the
"saw mill gang," and that Andrew HOCHSTADTER, also of this county, is
enjoying good health. This trio of Jefferson county are regular readers
of the J.D., and Mr. MEYER complains that they have missed three
issues. Whose fault this is we can not tell, as the paper is mailed
regularly at this office. He also says that it was so cold on January
19th, that several children froze to death while on their way to school.
McGAHAN's District, February 3. - Editor J.D.: Our five-months school,
taught by Miss Jennie PERKINS, closed yesterday with exhibitions, in
which the children acquitted themselves splendidly. Every one had
something to do, and all performed their parts well. Miss PERKINS has
taught us two terms and given such satisfaction that I am sure she will
be engaged for the next term, as we can not do better. Mr. DEGONIA
furnished vocal and instrumental music for the entertainment...The
Moontown road is so bad that people can not go to town to get the news,
so I haven't much to write about; but I must not forget to state that
there is a new boy at Eli McMULLIN's, and the father is very proud.
This is No. 5. Get there, Eli! B.

OBITUARY - DIED - January 17, 1888, at Sullivan, Mo., Mrs. E.W. ADAIR,
wife of the late Dr. W.P. ADAIR, of spinal disease, after an illness of
Mrs. ADAIR was born December 2, 1822, in St. Francois county, Mo., near
Farmington. Her maiden name was POSTON. She was married twice, first
to N.M. BOSWORTH, of New York, and afterwards to Dr. ADAIR of
Pennsylvania. She leaves one daughter, Mrs. J.W. MILLER, besides a host
of mourning friends and relatives. She united with the Presbyterian
church when quite young, and has ever since lived a consistent Christian
life. Burt her work is done, her pilgrimage finished, and she has gone
to that brighter, better world, to be forever with the God she loved and
served, and while we weep we feel that our loss is her gain.
Her brow is enclosed in a golden crown,
Her travel-stained garments are all laid down;
And, clothed in white remount, she rests in the mead,(?)
Where Jesus doth love his saints to lead.
