Kansas City Mo Ante 23 A pnrty
of capitalists from the East embracla11
fo of the members of ttie Lombard la
vestment company of Boston who hire
been here several days Ionklnc after tlielr
investment In this city bad theirfirs
taste ot burgoo and their tint experience
of a burgoo party on the banUs ot the
BIuh river Inst Thursday Several locnl
cnpitullgts lnivlus them in chnree unil
wuliiiiR to slmw them lomelhlup new
under the sun to them at least
decided upon a burgoo purty
nnd Tliursday mornlne they started for
the Blue river bright and early going
out ad far as Sheffield on the dummy
line taking carriages there and driving
a number of mllei up the river to a very
pretty shaded spot which was sufficiently
secluded to suit the promoters of the
party as one ot the ssenliul features ot
u burgoo party U seclusion For It
should be known to the uninitiated that
a burgoo party Is a party wriere to use
the vernacular everything goes
It might be well to explain tlrst what
burgoo is and wbut is meant by a burgoo
party Ihere are two dellnilious of
burgoo extant One Is the dictionary
definition of the doctrinaires who would
not know burgoo from a horseshoe if
they nere to meet it iu the road The
other Is by Senator Vest and is n dell
tiltlonfuggCKted by an experience of long
standing a more than spenklug
niquulutauce with burgoo The dlo
llunary says burgoo is n kmd ot
OATMEAL PUDDING
or thick gruel used by seamen nnd says
it is derived from the old English bur
yum or yenst unci gawl which menns
gruel Without any intention of throw
in obloquy on Mr Webster one Is con
strained to remark after a careful pe
rusal of the definition thnt be hud never
been within a mile of burgoo If that is
renlly what he thinks It Is Senator
Vests definition Is much better The
senator wus seated in the courthouse In
this city one day surrounded as usual
by a i rowd anxious to hear one of his
inimitable stories wheu the conversa
tion turned to picnics and ome one in
the crowd asked the senator what in the
world burgoo was
The senator paused a moment nnd
said A untlve Missourinn who doesnt
know what burgoo Is deserves to be trans
ported to rCuusns or Iowa or some other
slate equally beniithted and there live
out his life surrounded by Ilepubllcun
nnd prohibition If there is any worse
fute than that on this earth I dont know
what it Is
My dear sir tne man doesnt live
who can tell you what burgoo Is for the
Simple reason that no two kettles o
burgoo were ever made alike But per
haps by relutluc n little incident that
happened nt a burgoo pnrty that I par
ticipated in once 1 mav give you a pretty
good Idea of what it is The picnic was
held on the Current river a beautiful
stream in the southern part of this state
famous for the clearness of its waters
and the swiftness of Its current It was
several years aco but I remember the
tiny as well ns if it was yesterduy When
I drove up It was quite lute and every
body else was on hand The burgoo was
in course of making then and although
I had frequently eaten it 1 had never
seen It made and wanted to see exactly
whut went into it
1 You will tlnd it Is always the old man
ot the nelghborhool who makes the
burgoo and walking over to the big
caldron I found him stirring about in a
thick bowl of soup with a big stick Be
dropped in a piece of chicken a squirrel
a rabbit onions cnbbnge parsnips
fresh beef well I dont know what else
he didnt put In it Iilght ubove him a
big tree spread its boughs and on the
limb over the caldron was
A WOODPECkKRSNKST
While I wus tryiug to engage the old
man In conversation a futile tusk by the
way riubt donn iuto the soup there
dropped a young woodpecker The
pinfeathers were just sticking out of Its
wings nnd its lone neck und head didnt
have a feather while its eyes stood out
like goggles The old man paused slir
riue for a moment as if a little startled
and t en resumed as he remarked Just
in time just In time Thats about
the best Idea ot burgoo that I canglro
you t
The senators definition gives a pretty
good idea of what buicoo is Anythlug
from the heavens above or the earth be
neath that falls into the caldron is as
the old mnn said < just iu time
The proper thi p to do at a burgoo
party is to Qsn Why nobody knows
jfo fish are ever cnu Ut but it is consid
ered he proper thing uud on reaching
the place the party at ouco proceeded to
casting lines There were several
buckets of nice minnows and for a few
moments all was bustle and
contusion About one hour was
spent in watting for the
tlsh that never came nnd then lying
dojrn on the cool shaded banks of the
pretty stream they swapped llts of the
fish they had taught the last man beat
lug nil the others and not halt trying
The only mishap of the morning and
that could hardly be called n mishap as
It onlj served to Increase tho fun was
the falling into the river of tho best
dressed man In the crowd A thorough
soaking that didnt do bun nny harm was
the result
A few yards away near fi spring the
burgoo was In course of making a fire
had been built under a big black kettle
that looked suspiciously tike a soap ket
tle althoueh the old man Iu charge was
ready to make affidavit that notblngobut
burcoo had ever been In it He Itrst
tilled it half full of water unit let It come
to a boll Then he put iu u panful of
bread crumbs After that meat Bsh
vegetables solids nnd liquids went in Iu
such cou fusion and such heaps that there
was no keeping trauk of thrn There
wns plenty or good bourbon in thf > crowd
nnd everybody was n a good humor
One ot the funniest incidents of the day
was the recitation of the
IXCANTATIOX SCBSE FROM MACBETH
It was given by three of the centlnnen
who are noted In city life as being most
staid members ot the commercial world
and everybody joined In the chorus of
bubble bubble toil and trouble lire
burn und caldron bubble
Knives forks aud plates are interdic
ted at all well regulated burgoo parties
It Is a tin cup or lingers or tiothmg and
by Iff oclock everybody was hungry
enouzb o dip Into the pot with a cup
and tauetho steaming hot broth with a
relish
In spite of Senator Vests definition
and ot the prejudices one wnntd naturally
have against burgoo from the description
