The village of Houses Springs lost two good citizens last week, in the
persons of Dr. NULL and Mr. SEIVERS, blacksmith, both of whom sold out
and moved away. Dr. NULL is at present located at Hematite, but expects
to locate at Marshall, Mo., soon. SEIVERS is off on a visit to his
parents in Germany, and on his return expects to locate in Illinois.
We are informed by postal card of the death of our old friend Edward
DALY, secretary of the Missouri Glass Co., of St. Louis. Mr. DALY was
known to many of our oldest citizens as a prompt reliable business man,
forty years ago, and from the length of time he held the position of
Secretary of the Missouri Glass Co., we judge that he had not departed
from the correct habits of his youth. His name has been in our
subscription book so long that it is with sorrow that we erase it.

Quite an exciting runaway took place on Main street, Sunday p.m. Mr.
CONNERS was riding out, driving his recent purchase, The Capt. DAVIS
sorrel horse. He had with him a little 4 year old daughter of Mr.

onto the dash. The horse ran towards its old home. Mr. CUNNINGHAM was
