DIED

KIEFER — On Sunday, August 10, of cholera morbus, Theresa KIEFER, daughter of Philip KIEFER, at the age of 42 years.

A FATAL ACCIDENT

Mr. Jesse MCFARLAND, of New Tennessee, was watering his horses in the yard one day last week, the animals having their harnesses on at the time.  One of the horses standing back, seemingly reluctant to come up to the trough, Mr. MCFARLAND kicked it. The animal freed itself with a sudden leap and dashed off at a fearful rate, while its unhappy master, whose foot had caught in the lines, was dragged over the yard and around the barn several times, before the frightened horse could be stopped. When the man was picked up, it was found that the right foot was broken and the head and side covered with wounds. Dr. HORN of Coffman was called in and he amputated the foot, but seeing that the man had received fatal internal injuries, summoned another physician from Farmington for consultation. Twenty-three hours after the accident, the sufferer died.
Mr. MCFARLAND was married and was about 40 years of age. A numerous funeral train accompanied the remains to their last resting place.

HON. EDMOND MENARD

Of Kaskaskia died at his residence, Wednesday evening, August 6th, of pneumonia, at the age of 71 years and 6 months. Mr. MENARD was a son of the late Pierre MENARD, the first lieutenent governor of Ill., and a near relative of Mrs. MENARD of this place and of the CHOUTEAUS of St. Louis, with whom he was intimately connected in business affairs and social relations.
Hon. Edmond MENARD was the last remaining member of the old family, and in his death is severed the connecting link between the long past and the present, in the history and development of of the Mississippi valley, from a wildreness inhabited by the savages and the wild beasts of the forests to the present colossal grandeur in the pathway of civilization, the arts and sciences. He was one of those noble pioneers who did more for the government and the people, practically, than ages accomplished. He was the father of the poor, ever administering to their needs unsolicited, and for years to come his memory will remain green in their hearts. His life was blameless, and in his death has been removed from among the people of Randolph county, one of their noblest and truest citizens.

I have just made arrangements with two of the largest clothing houses in
Chicago and St. Louis whereby I will be enabled to carry the largest and
best assortment of clothing and to sell them for less money than any other
house in Ste. Genevieve Co.
Yours etc., M.W. HOFFMAN

Bob LONG is certainly an unlucky wight. Sunday night he wanted to jump off
the Little Gem to look for fuel, but missed it and only the circumstance
that Joseph FITZKAM didn’t cut his hair too short, saved his life. On
Monday Mr. LONG was riding a horse between here and Rock Haven when the
animal stumbled and fell, and the rider, of course was the under one in the
pile. He was not hurt, however, and is laughing at his mishap.

Wm. VAN WINKLE, the Greenback Labor apostle and Jeffersonian orator of St.
Mary, is seriously contemplating becoming a candidate for the Legislature in
this county. If he should conclude to do so, we understand he will
challenge all aspirants for that position to a free and joint debate upon
all topics affecting the interests of the people and, as Mr. VAN WINKLE is
possessed in a large degree with what is vulgarly called the “gift of gab,”
he will make things lively. Should Citizen Pottinger be tempted to enter
the arena, we will have the liveliest campaign for many years. The Herald
will give all parties a fair show.

The excursion to St. Mary last Sunday was a very pleasant affair with the
exception of the return trip. The weather was beautiful and the whole earth
smiled encouragement on the company when the “Little Gem” started from the
foot of Market street. The
“Music rose with its voluptuous swell,
And all went merry as a marriage bell.”
All the participants concur in the opinion that it couldn’t have been
better, and the fun was, as Karl SCHURZ would say, “simply immense.” But
the return trip was marked by several mishaps, which were anything but
pleasant. The boat ran against a snag first and against the bank
afterwards, which latter accident prostrated the whole company andforced
them to make a low salaam before king Gambriaus, who himself unceremoniously
left his throne and rolled about in a very undignified manner. Besides
something was wrong with the machine, and by the time the damage was
repaired, the boat had drifted back as far as the Kaskaskia cut off, where
they wer obliged to stay and wait for the Elliott to tow them up to Ste.
Genevieve, for want of fuel. The cold night air gave some of the company a
bad cold, but altogether, the fun was greater than the damage.

PROCEEDINGS OF THE REPUBLICAN
MEETING AT WEHNER’S GARDEN
ON SATURDAY LAST

The meeting was called to order by John S. WHITLOCK, chairman of the
central committee, who moved that Capt. G. ST. GEM be made chairman of the
meeting. The motion was carried, P. MENARD was then made secretary. The
chair announced that the object of the meeting was to organize a BLAINE and
LOGAN club, after which the meeting proceeded to organize. On motion, Mr.
ST. GEM was made president of the club, P.A. MENARD, secretary, and W.H.
BANTZ and Val ROTTLER, vice presidents.
The president delivered a short address, in which he pointed out the
manner work could be done to further the interests of the club.
The names of 75 members were then enrolled on the book.
On motion it was resolved that the club be named the “Blaine and Logan
Club of Ste. Genevieve.” There being no further business, the meeting
adjourned until Saturday, August 16th.
P.A. MENARD,
Secretary.

1000 lbs. of good lard at 8cts. per lb., at ROZIER & JOKERST.

Geo. SEXAUER has received and put up his new pool table and his billiard
table has also received a new coat, and they look lovely.

A.L. LUNSFORD has insured $146,000 worth of property in this county since
March last.

The colored club organized at WEHNER’s farden last Saturday, goes by the
name of “BLAINE and LOGAN reliables.” They number twenty-one.

Mr. Thomas BRYAN, who comes before the people to-day as a candidate of
assessor needs no eulogy from us. There can be no question as to his
ability, and his integrity of character has never been questioned.

It will be good news to the many friends of Phil STAAB, of New Offenburg,
that that gentleman has recovered from his painful sickness of many months
and is once more up and about.

The candidates’ picnic season has now fairly opened and woe to the candidate
who fails to attend and make himself solid with the voters by liberal
donations for ice-cream, prize-cakes, etc.

We learn from a prominent citizen of Jackson Township that a large number of
citizens of that Township regard the proposed Bridge over the Establishment
as useless and will vote against the appropriation.

Mr. Bernard SCHMELZLE of Zell threshed his wheat this week and the outcome
was, as far as we were able to learn, 1400 bushels. Messrs. August BAEHLE
and Jos. FALLERT, also of Zell, will each thresh about the same quantity.

We hear it rumored that Tony KRANZLE is about to buy the farm of B.S.
PRATTE. Mr. PRATTE has one of the finest farms on the Saline. We learn
that if the trade is consummated, Mr. PRATTE proposes to move to California
and engage in stock raising.

Mrs. E. KERN has just received a lot of notions, silk embroideries, corsets,
handkerchiefs, rushings, buttons, ladies’ and children’s hosiery, rubber
gossamers, jerseys, collars, ties, fissues. Will sell at St. Louis prices.
Hats sold at COST now.

We call the attention of our readers to the announcement of Mr. Frank J.
HUCK, our present assessor, for re-election. Mr. HUCK has been in office
for the last two years and, as far as we can learn, has striven to do right
to the best of his ability, and no fair-minded man will expect him to do
more. He is subject to the will of the people.

Good young chickens from $1.50 to $1.75 per dozen at ROZIER & JOKERST.

Messrs. Barth. and Theo. OTT moved with their families to Salisbury, Mo.,
last Monday. The brothers will quickly feel themselves at home in Chariton
Co., as several relatives have already mad their home there. The Herald, of
course accompanies them to their new home.

HOFFMAN’s, St. Mary, Mo., is the place to do your trading. He pays the
highest price for produce, carries a fine line of all kinds of general
merchandise and by certain arrangements that he has made with Eastern and
St. Louis houses he is enabled to sell goods at the VERY lowest.

A boy four years old, son of Mr. Herman F. BOCKENKAMP of Willow Pond, fell
into a cistern 17 feet deep. The child was severely bruised on the head and
side and, at first, fears were entertained that he had sustained fatal
internal injuries. Dr. SCOTT was promptly called and the little sufferer
could soon be pronounced out of danger.
