MESSRS. BEY & BRO. have just received a large and fresh supply of goods from St. Louis which they are now selling at 25 per cent below former prices for cash or country produce. Give them a call.

BIG SQUIRREL. -- Mr. Jules Vallroy, residing four miles north of Perryville, killed a fox squirrel a few days since, that was pretty large. After it was dressed and head off, it weighed two pounds. Is there anybody in these parts that can do better !

RUNAWAY. -- Mr. Joseph Wucker's team became unmanageable and ran away on Thursday evening of last week. The team passed our office at a rapid rate, but was soon brought to a stand still. The wagon was not improved by the run, and nobody was hurt.

Mr. Conrad Lanz and family, from Evansville, Randolph county, Ills., arrived in Perryville last Saturday, visiting relatives.

THE CONSTITUTION. -- Next Saturday we are called upon to vote yea or no on the new constitution recently framed at the capital of the State. Let every one who is entitled to vote go and cast it. Vote one way or the other, but we advise all to vote for its adoption, as it is far superior to the present organization in the State. We think there is no doubt but it will be adopted by a tremendous majority.

IN A PREDICAMENT. -- Recently Mr. Lawrence Moranville went to Ste. Marys with a load of wheat, and when near what is known as the grind stone hill, concluded to drive into a pond to water his horses, and in doing so, stepped off in to deep water, and the hind part of the wagon stopped on the bank, and remained in this condition until pulled out by another team. He says it will be some time before he will venture into that pond again.
