Sheriff JONES took his little girl, Cora to St. Louis last Tuesday to
get a wen extracted from her face. Dr. AUERSWALD accompanied him, and
as Dr HODGON was absent, Dr. AUERSWALD performed the surgical operation
himself, in the presence of Dr. MUDD, professor of anatomy in St. Louis
Medical college, and did the job neatly and quickly, and the little girl
is getting along finely.

arrived from out west on the 10th inst., and although he had been
prostrated with sickness, we must say that he was looking well as we
