guilty and was fined $25, and as he had nothing with which to pay the
fine his punishment was commuted to ten days in jail.

DE SOTO ITEMS -- By H.S. JENKS - De Soto, Mo., Sept 23, 1879 - The
moonlight picnic and social hop at the Hotel Park, last Thursday night,
for the benefit of the Catholic Church, was one of the most enjoyable
occasions of the season. The arrangements were mostly made under the
direction of D.D. DESMOND, chairman of the committee, ably assisted by
many ladies as well as gentlemen. The music for dancing was furnished
by what is known as the Carondelet string band. However, they are
nearly all employed at the machine shops here, at present. They were
led by Prof. ROBINSON and gave good satisfaction. the De soto brass
band was also in attendance, and between the two there was an abundance
of good music. There was a splendid cake to be given to the lady
receiving the most votes. Competition at this election was very
exciting. The following named young ladies were voted for: Misses
CARRAHER, SCHNEIDER, WHITE, FARMER and DESMOND. The two principal
competitors were the first and last named. Miss CARRAHER received 662
votes, while Miss DESMOND received 708. The net receipts for the cake
was $144.60. A good cake and a good price. The net receipts from all
sources were nearly $400. Everything passed off pleasantly, and when I
get a pic-nic I shall try to employ that committee. Miss Julia WHITE
occupied the Gipsy wagon and dispensed the past, present and future to
all patrons. There was also a post-office, fishing pond, as well as
refreshment stands. The different committees desire to return thanks to
the public for their valuable attendance, and their financial aid; to
Mr. Martin MAHONEY, who acted as musical director, and floor manager for
the hop, and to all the committee at large for their valuable aid, which
made this such an enjoyable affair. To Mr. E.J. DONNELLY, proprietor of
the De Soto House, they are under many obligations.
Mr. CORBIER, a pensioner from the late war, died suddenly at his
residence, 1 mile east of De Soto, last Saturday, aged 51. He was a
former member of the 6th Mo. Infantry (Federal).

GUARDIAN'S RESIGNATION - Notice is hereby given that the undersinged
guardian of Andrew J. GAMBLE, minor, will present to the Probate Court
of Jefferson county, Mo., on Monday, the 3d day of November, 1879, my
resignation as guardian of such minor. Elisha W. ROGERS, Oct. 3,

The population of this township has been increased some lately -- in a
natural way. We har of three new boys, one at Andrew HUSKEY's, another
at N.S. HUSKEY's, and another at Jas. ELDER's.
Mark VINYARD, a little orphan boy eleven years of age, was in with his
uncle Alexander, last Monday to have a guardian appointed. The little
fellow's back and limbs were exhibited to us, to show the treatment he
had received from his uncle Peter VINYARD. He was bruised, black and
blue, from his head to his feet. It is hard to realize the existence in
our county of such a brute as the man who can beat a child, but the
evidence is too plain to admit of doubt.
James MARTIN and wife, while bringing home a sorghum mill one day last
week, came near getting killed. MARTIN got out to lock the wagon, on a
hill they were descending, when the mules started to run, jerking him
down and pulling the wagon over him, and continuing their run till the
wagon was upset and Mrs. MARTIN and the mill thrown out. It was thought
that Mrs. M. had some ribs broken, and was otherwise bruised, and MARTIN
was also bruised.
On the first of October Mr. Geo. BRYANT (colored), was married to Mrs.
Cordelia JACKSON (colored). Esq. WATERS performed the ceremony.
Mr. KELLOG of St. Louis, J.C. MERRILL of De Soto, F.M. CADWALLADER of
Crystal City, and James CARTER of Bismark, D.T., were in town Saturday.
