     We received a call from Mr. T. Collins, superintendent of the Second Day County Coal and Mining Company of Camden, Mo.  We congratulate our old friend on his new position and the company in securing the services of such a genial and accomplished gentleman to fill such a responsible position.  The company, although young, can already be numbered with the permanent and prosperous institutions of the state.

     Last night Professor Galloway gave another one of those enjoyable hops for which he is so famous.  The music was delightful, the dancing charming and the entire affair passed off in the most pleasant manner.
