mand, which has been growing louder daily,
that the Saltan join the army. The pro
posal that the Sultan quit Constantinople
has naturally raised a question whether it
is safe to leave behind a Parliament which
is becoming more difficult to manage ; and
which, moreover, has the whole population
of Constantinople with it. No wonder,
therefore, that Constantinople for the last
few days has been filled with rumors of
impending desolation, a roup d' etat, etc.

military resistance ia Asia, and that the
only dificaltiea they will have to en
counter are those ot country and climate.

The Wright county JIoeie-Talk records the
death of Walter J. Mizell. under indictment
for the murder of Samuel S. Ferguson, in
1872. Ferguson was mysteriously shot
while plowing in his field, and Mizell's re
lations with him not being friendly, he was
supected of the murder. A warrant was
issued tor his arrest, but he could not be
found. The ensuing grand jury found an
indictment against him for.murder. He
was finally arrested, three years afterward,
in Texa?, and taken back to Wright county
for trial. He was admitted to bail, and
the case was continued from term to term,
he promptly appearing at each court to
which his case was continued. But life
seemed to him a .burden and society had
no charms. At length death claimed him
and his venue has been changed to a tribunal
higher than human judgment, and from
which there is no appeal.

It is perhaps no discredit to the average

pretty foot and a neatly tapered ankle.
Nor is it strange that men will resort to a
great many devices to procure a sight, of
these pretty female continuations. But the
success of a rate having these
KNI is VIKW
does not always turn out as satisfactorily
as the party had reason to expect. A case
in point illustrates this fact. Last Sunday
evening a couple of bewitching girls were
promenading Ohio street with their sweet
hearts. The air was soft and balmy, and
the glowing sunset had flung a puqile col
oring through the leafy trees, mnrmurou
with the music that lovers always delight
to hear. The girls were young ami inex
perienced the youths were
FREttt AND ARDKNT,
and they lent up against each other xs they
slowly paced the sidewalk with the raptur
ous delight of mating turtle doves.
What enchanting visions cm sod their
minds nt little homes, just large euntmh for
two, or two and a half to dwell in, it is no
purpose of the reporter to say. Hut icr-
haps somethiug of the kind was Im-y at
their hearts, for the young lady's head- the
foremnot couple would occasionally fall
with a caressing motion on the shoulder of
her escort and her red pouting lip would
emit hot furnace like sighs, which, while
perfumed like the gales of Araby the
Blessed had a tendency to

which bent toward them. Finally they ap
proached an oa-set in the sidewalk near
where a paralel ditch narrow and deep,
suggestod the idea that he would tempt
his sweet-heart to jump it. Ala! if the
young lady had only known how that un
lucky jump would dispel his dreams of
love. But she wa full of life and vivacity
and the reaction from her recent suscepti
ble condition had set the blood dancing
thrnuch her veins with lightning like ra
pidity. ''Jump!" of coiiKe die would. The
young limb werethrilling with excitement,
and she bounded over the gutter withi
leap as free and daring as a mettled racer.
But an envious gust of wind lifted her
skirt a little too high, and while the
rounded ankle showed fair and plump, it
disclosed xs well, a stocking just the least
bit soiled j
WITH A HOLE IN IT.
Through the envious rent there was no
glimpse of a foot like snow, hut a brown
and rusty skin such as Audmt might have
won when old Jupiter chased the Grecian
nymph across the gian .ivund.
With that vision passed away all the
IoverV dreams of happiness. He had ex

wilderingly beautiful in its fatitlesxne&,
that the disappointment fell upon him like a

The Bates County JI(rr,rd publishes the
subjoined account of a fatal accident which
recently occurred near Papinville :
About ten days ago, two boys, Chsrley
Whittenbach and James Lambton, went
squirrel hunting in the timber above Pa
pinville. Each had a gun and when about
two miles from town, Whittenbach got tired
and concluded to return home. One of the
boys (we did not leant which) wanted to
exchange guns, and the other objected. A
scalie endued and Whittenbach's gun went
off by the hammer's catching in his coat,
infiicting a mortal wound on Lambton.
He told Whittenbach that he was killed
and requested him to go for a wagon and
take him home. Whittenbach ran to town
as quickly as he could but when a party re
tamed, he was dead, being already stiff.
The charge took effect a little to one side

as the train for the East oa the Missouri
Pacific would not leave until 5 o'clock, it
became necessary to hold the convict in
; jail from 10 until 4 30. He was placed ia
the city calaboose. There came over with
the darkey a young lawyer from Liberty,
who had defended him in his late trial
He had assured his legal adviser that he
had $500 buried in the vicinity of Ken
t nedv's ice house, in the eastern portion of
1 the city, and promised to give it up to him
if l,c would accompany him to Kansas
City. On arriving in this city the convict
accompanied by Lawyer Burroughs, Cap!,
Mallov, ot the M.P. police force, started
( forth in an express wagon, and the convict

i and then gave up the job and all returned
j to the Court House, where the convict

and the disgusted attorney went across the
street. The strangest part of the story is
yet to be told. Whea the negro was placed
in the calaboose his hands were handcuffed
together with patent handcuff and his feet
were manacled with shackles a half an
inch in thickness. When the door wan
opened to take him forth he was discovered
free from restraint, with all his chains
broken literally broken not cut, lying
upon the floor. The breakage of the irons
all of them of the latest patent, and best
of iron is a marvel and a mystery. The
convict had no tools and there was not the
least sign of a file upon the irons. They
were broken squarely in two by sere
physical strength. It will require extraor
dinary watching to keep that convict in the
Pen for three Tears.
