WEDNESDAY, 14 MARCH 1888
Mrs. Louis BUSCH, one of our oldest German citizens, died last week,
after a lingering sickness.
Lawrence HENRY lost a small child this week, and has a grown son very
low with pneumonia. Henry PLANK also lies very low with same disease.
Mrs. Thos. TRUE is quite sick, but thought to be slowing improving.
One of our most enterprising farmers, John WHITE, met with a serious
accident. Last Thursday morning he took his double-barreled shotgun
and went out to take a hunt, expecting to start up a fox; when about one
mile from his house he thought he heard a fox or something behind him
and turned suddenly around, when the barrels of the gun struck a tree,
knocking the gun off of his shoulder, one barrel firing and the contents
striking Mr. WHITE in the heel just below the ankle joint, ranging
downward and breaking the heel bone lacerating the back of the foot
badly. Mr. WHITE crawled about a half mile to his field, and by
hollowing managed to make his wife hear him. A wagon was quickly
hitched up and the suffering man conveyed to his house. Dr. SPAULDING
was sent for, the loose bones were picked out and the wound dressed,
since which time he has been doing very well and will probably recover,
but will be a cripple for life. Kimmswick, March 11, 1888.
The remains of Mr. Henry EULER and Miss Carrie WILLIAMS, both of whom
died in California last week, arrived here, the former on Saturday and
the latter on Sunday and were buried in the City cemetery.
Willis S. HOPSON, has been a papa since one night last week. It is a
If Charles KLEINSCHMIDT appears to be more quiet than usual, don't think
any thing strange of it; there is a bran-new girl at his house.
A new STAAT was admitted into the Union, last Saturday. It is a girl,
but Papa George is just as proud as if it were a pair of boys.
Wm. JEUDE of Pevely, who has been in very poor health for more than a
year, contemplates starting for Germany next May, where he expects to
regain his former vigor. His wife will accompany him.
Mrs. W.H. JEWEL of Brentwood, N.H., with her two daughters, are visiting
relatives in this county. Mrs. J. is a sister of Circuit Clerk VEAZEY.
We learn that Mr. Aquilla H. COLE of Plattin township, was buried last
Sunday. Mr. COLE was one of the most energetic and successful farmers
of the county. Thirty or more years ago, while assisting at a
house-raising, a heavy log fell on him, mashing him enough to have
killed two or three ordinary men, and though he was crippled for life he
soon recovered sufficiently to get around and attend to business. He
necessarily had to do a great deal of horseback, and ever since his
misfortune had to use a sidesaddle. He and his excellent wife raised
quite a large family. Two of his sons now live in Texas, and one
daughter is in Arkansas, we believe. Mr. COLE will be missed.
On the 11th inst., Albert HAHN and Miss Christina KLEESNER were united
in the bonds of matrimony, at the residence of John TRUST?, in Meramec
township, by 'Squire SHEIBLE. The groom is a step-son of Charles
WOHLBOLD, and is known as one of the most industrious as well as one of
the best young men of Bellew's Creek. The bride is the step-daughter of
Mr. PLUMER, of near Antonia, but was raised by Mrs. TROST, who took
charge of her at the age of five years, when the child's father, a
relative of the TROST's, died. A large number of friends of the
contracting parties had assembled, and eatables and drinks made for a
grand feast had been provided; but Mrs. TROST had been attacked by
pneumonia, which marred the joys of the occasion, and the guests had
noticed as people generally do on such occasions. We hope that Mrs.
TROST will soon recover, and that the young couple's brightest
expectations may be realized.

follows: Over body of Thomas DIXON, and fee bill of $15.35 allowed;
