A Bad Business

From the Republican.

Mr. David Crockett of Audrain county killed 341 rats the other day. We are not told whether it was a good rat day or not, but it must have been. We are not informed that Mr Crockett traces his lineage back to the immortal hero of the Alamo; but as a slayer he would be a not unworthy descendant of that illustrious patriot. It is vouchsafed to few men in this world to kill as many rats in one day as this Audrain county farmer; and as an act of justice to the red slayer, we have embalmed the achievement in our catalogue of Missouri items.

And yet, from a farmer's point of view, we think this enormous slaughter of rats was a bad business. Not that we have any tenderness for these ravagers of Missouri corn-cribs. Not that we have any doubts about the plenary right of a man to kill rats. But that Mr. Crockett should have so many rats to be killed. There is where the fault is. We are not qualified to determine the amount of sound Audrain county corn a single able-bodied rat will consume or waste in the course of a year, when he has the liberty of the corn-crib, with the privilege of eating without regard to his ability to digest it; but say the allotment is only half a bushel; then Mr. Crockett's 341 rats would eat, when alive 170 1-2 bushels of corn. It is evident to a person of practical and calculating turn of mind that it was less profitable to Mr. Crockett to have killed so many rats than it would have been not to have had to them to kill. Why need he have so many in his corn-crib? Why not build that depository in such a manner that rats cannot get into it? It may be a little troublesome and expensive to make a corn-crib rat-proof, but we are certain it is more troublesome and expensive in the long run to have it not rat-proof. Mr. Crockett will come to the same conclusion after he has fattened and killed a few thousand rats.

SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS

----

An Effort Made to Steal the Body of Lincoln.

----

A Close Watch Kept on the Thieves.

Yet They Escaped.

Special to the St. Louis Republican.

SPRINGFIELD, Ills., Nov. 7. An attempt was made to-night to steal the remains of Lincoln from the crypt in the national monument here. It was known sometime age that the attempt was to be made and information led to the belief that it was to be done to-night. A competent force of officers had been on duty at the monument for some time and they had been reinforced by the addition of Elmer Washburn, late of the secret service, and Capt. Tyrel. At about 9 p. m. the robbers, four in number, appeared at the monument, broke into the grated door, tore open the movable sarcophagus, and partly removed the casket. The officers then moved from where they were concealed, but the accidental explosion of a pistol gave the alarm and they escaped into the shrubbery abou the monument. The intention no doubt was to steal the body and secrete it until a reward was offered for it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

FOUND IN A ROCK People have heard and read, says the Galveston News, of toads having been found imbedded in rocks, but now comes another curiosity to be added to the list. Mr. John Adriance, of this city, has a Mexican coin dated 1710, which was taken from the center of a piece of rock found in the bottom of the Rio Grande.

THE HOWE

Sewing Machine!

The Lock Stitch invented by Mr. Howe, and made on this Machine is the most popular and durable, is alike on both sides, and will neither rip nor ravel, and all sewing machines are subject to the principle invented by him.

A Machine was needed possessing simplicity and durability, and adapted to a great range of work; one easily understood and comprehended by all. To produce such a machine has been the study of Elias Howe, jr., who gave to the world the first sewing machine, more than twenty years ago; and now we offer his last production a Machine embracing all essential qualities, and pronounced

The Best Machine in the World.

Persons form a distance can order a Machine with perfect confidence of being able to operate it in a few hours successfully, by the aid of the printed instructions that accompany each machine.

European War.

From the St. Louis Republican.

The European war-cloud again thickens and the indications this time are that it will not pass away. Were Russia really desirous of a peaceful solution of the difficulties in the East a settlement could apparently have been reached ere this. Now the Turk isup in arms and the Russian forces are being placed on a war-footing. The proposed conference is likely to be a failure and the announcement of war actually declared need surprise no one.
