Mr. Duiilap w:o himself a visited St. Joseph, coming from the South west, and covering an area of some eiglit blocks, or a quarter of a mile. It is almost impossible to convey a correct conception striking example of its beiiificeuce. He had UEKN A IKUNKAK1, and had wallowed in the mire of disipation had sounded to its depths the pit o of the extent of the ruin that has been (social depravity, and had heed rescued and wrought. It swept down everthing in its pathway, demolishing houses and tearing down walls in all directions. In the dark ness and rush of the storm men, women and children ran, screaming, INTO THE STREETS, to encounter falling walls and roofs, that were caught up by the wind and tossed like feathers on the gale. No pen can picture the scene of terror and confusion that pre vailed throughout the length and bieadth of the city. Rumor ran wild, and terror and affright soon magnified the calamity great as it was. At first it was supposed that the entire city was a mass of ruins ; hut as the storm abated and some accurate survey of the wrecks that filled the streets and PACKED EVERY AVENUE in the center of the town,could be made, it was ascertained that the calamity although great was not as bad as first reported. The cyclone struck the southwestern portion of the city encountering and partially un roofing three two story buildings. Among these was Heaton's boarding house on Sixth street and a ware house not in use. Near Heaton's the fire walls of A COFFIN M A NUFACTORY were thrown down, crushing in their fall a one-story addition to his house, occupied by servants and some servant girls, some of whom were badly hurt, including Mrs. Kate Zimmerman, Christian Longreen and Ansa Riley, servant girls. Anna Riley was buried beneath the debris, but was ex tracted in half an hour. She is dangerous ly hurt, but the doctors think she will re cover. The Pacific House, Tootle's Open.. House and a large number of business houses were unroofed, and many walls damaged. Ryan's meat market, Sixth and Francis, was completely demolished. Many residences are also damaged, but none of them so seriously as the houses already mentioned. There are of course many ttersons who are more or less SERIOUSLY HURT, and many narrow and remarkable escapes have been made from what seemed inevita ble death. The damages were not so great, in a pecu niary point of view, as was at first sup posed probably not exceeding $75,000. School Entertainment. The closing exercises of Prof. Boothe's school took place at Smith's Hall, to day, commencing at 2 o'clock. Notwithstanding the muddy condition of the streets, quiet a large and fashionable audience gathered at the hall, and showed their hearty appre ciation of the entertainment by frequent applause. The exercises consist of three classes Juvenile, Junior and Senior. Ow ing to going to press at 4 o'clock, the Bazoo is enabled to give only the Juvenile part of the exercises, which are as follows: Song "Praise" Juvenile Music Class. Prayer Rev. J. W. Dunn. Song "The Fisherman's Invitation" Class. Piano Solo Annie Simons. Beading "Bird Heaven" Mabel Phil ipps. Piano Solo Sallie Major. Concert Reading "The Brook" Pri mary School. Piano Solo Ella Beck.

Mr. Dun lap was sure it would do for anv one else what it had done for him and thousands of others, who, like himself, had tasted the bitter drugs of the lowest degradation. Of the necessity of leading temperate lives, it was not necessary to stieak. No man had ever yet been found bold enough to defend the inebriate ir the trade of the rum seller the unconscious agent perhap, of more ruin and misery in the world than every cau$e combined. These men tierhaps had never fullv realized the extent and horror of the living death they were dealing out ON every si HE. If the did he was sure it would require but little argument to turn them from the error of their wav. Mr. Dunlap was succeeded by the Rev. Mr. Page, who analyzed the pledge and showed what it meant. It was a written promise of every one who signed it to ab stain from the use of intoxicating liquors as a beverage, and to use his influence to induce others to abstain. It was a gauge of his word and ersonaI honor a covenant to himself and his (Sod. Mr. Page's address was very effective and was li.-tcned to with marked attention. At its couch won the song "Ninety and Nine" was sung by the choir, and the audience joi:;ed in it. Mr. Page had previously invited those present to come up during the singing of this song and HON THE PLEDGE. Many complied with the request, although others took advantage of the momentary confusion to escafte. Mr. Page apfiealed loudly to those to stay. His evident anx iety had the effect of restraining the steps of some, while it apparently hastened those of others. A few exhortations were then made by several prominent citizens and the move ment was promised their hearty co-oiera- tion and support.

There has been quite an excitement lere in regard to convict labor, and a meet ing of the miners of Pettis and adjoining counties was held here Saturday. J. W. Harrison was chosen Chairman. The meet ing was addressed by Capt. Burchard, ex- member of Congress, from Wisconsin, and Col. Lingle, of the Sedalia Dtitutcral. The object of the meeting was the removal of the convicts from the minas. A committee consisting of Robert Sharp, J. N. Haynes and J. W.

William McCallough, a lad 15 yean of age, the eldest son of James McC ullough, a heavy batter and egg dealer of Kansas City, and Provision Inspector, waa drowned Saturday afternoon in the Kaw river, a short distance south of the New live Stock Exchange bailding. Young McCullough with two companions went out rowing in a skit; McCulloflgh stealing with an oar. While leasing over to one sike of the skiff he lost hk balance and fell into the river. Effort were made to rescue htm, but they proved unavailing, and his body has not been Nothing But a Mule. Mertz & Hale are excavatiug in the rear of their store, on Ohio street, and have left one side of Pearl river) bridge exposed. This morning Mr.Abner Ryan undertook to drive a mule team through the alley, when they shied, and over the bridge went one of the mules, and hung on the ragged edge by a stout harness and the other mule. A crowd soon gathered and by main strength pulled the mule back, little dam aged by the fall. The excavation should have some pro tection, and property holders shuuld be held responsible for damage that might ensue from their negligence. A Terrible Story. The Louisiana Pro tells thiW dreadful story : A most horrible affair occurred in front of Williams Bros', store last Friday afternoon. A boy with a checked and a pink nose drove a grey horse up to the side walk and got out, and while he was gone the horse commenced backing and ran the wagon over a lady who was standing on the sidewalk:. She was knocked' down and terribly crushed. Her skull jras torn into shreds, her spinal column was broken clear down to her heel.and both collar bones split open to the wrists. The lady's name was Miss Wbodengal. F. U. Caleb, a half crazy man in Mon roe county, tried to drown his wife a few days since by holding her nnder the water. When rescued she was very near dead. over to the cell door, and he thinks the files were tied to that pole. It looks rea sonable, and no doubt this is the way that J j the escape was successfully accomplished. wotia not no.

It is the opinion of Sheriff Murray that Miller and Moran wanted tit go in d.iv- ight and take Daniels with them, to help tight and. force their way through any im pediment they might strike. M1M.EIC ANII NOKAN were arrested on the 38lh day of last Fe!- ruary, charged with steal ing some meat and coat from Mr. Frank Duncan, five miles south of this city, on the night of the 1th f February. They had an examination before Justice Reese, on March 1st, ami were held to await the action of the grand ury. and iu default of $0 Itonds, were comiritted to jai1, where they have been ever since'.

In answer to the query if they were go ng to have their trial in Springfield, Long answered in a very positive manner that they would not, but that they were determ ined to have their trial at Waynesville, where they are well known; that they were afraid to tru.t their case with out side strangers, who are too much prejudiced against them to give them a fair trial. "We only ak justice, and if we are tried by an unbiased jury of those who have known us from childhood we will be acquitted without the least doubt."

The little town of Reckenridge, 15 miles wot of Chillicothe, was struck by the Tice storm about noon Sunday, and sustained considerable damage. The bank building and a stone house used as a flour depot were unroofed and other buildings more or less damaged.

Second Hand Wit. Prof. Creenwottd's witticism, in reference to the Senators from Missouri, is remarka ble for three things: In the first place, it was not true; in the second place, it was malicious, and in the third place, it was soromf-A'fjiJ; the sarcasm having originated with John Randolph, fijly tairn tujo, and was by him applied to a member of Con gress from Massachusetts. A distinguished educator, who airs his political malice with a dead man's brains, may he more imperti nent, but is certainly less honest than the young lady who betrayed her ignorance. A Shooting Scrape in Bay County, Missouri. Lexington Jievter : At Mellville, Ray county, on Saturday last occurred what may yet prove a latal recontre. The diffi culty, we are informed, had its inception in a joke, which will, beyond doubt, prove a very serious one for both parties. Luther Schoolar, and James Dsvall are young men of good fatrilies and well thought of in the neighborhood in which they live. Both are well known in this city, and Mr. Duvall has relations living here. On Saturday they were in Mellville, a small village in the northext part of Ray county, when a dispute arose between them over some trivial matter. From words they came to blows. Friends interfered and parted the combatants. Schoolar drew hi pistol and Duvill picked up a rock, Duvall called Schoolar a coward and dared him to shoot The words had hardly left his lips before Schonlar fired.tbe ball enter ing Duvall's right eye.

Enterprise Monitor: Deputy Constable Wallis, of this city, yesterday, received in telligence that bis brother, Columbus Wal lis, of Chariton county, had been shot and killed, the day previous. The only particulars that have, so far, come to hand are, that a difficulty arose between the deceased and one of his neigh bors, whose name is not given, concerning a field oi com. A bitter quarrel ensued and Wallis was shot to death on the spot. We shall, likely, be able to give full details to-morrow. A Remarkable Escape From Death. A short time since the Bazoo published an account of the accidental shooting of a little son of Wm. II. Eliott, living in tht northeastern part of Audrain county. The ball wxs from a small cartridge pistol, and penetrated the eye and was supposed to have lodged in the brain. Dr. Rhodes r ROBED THE WOUND slightly but without ascertaining the extent or direction of the ball. The little fellow, after the shot, was taken violently sick at the stomach, and in leaning forward to voinit the physician thought that there was an Issue of brain matter from the wound and entertained small hopes of the child's recovery. For two days after the wound was received THE BOY SLEPT the greater part of the time, but, when aroused, displayed full consciousness of all that was pacing. The only complaint of pain made by him was of an aching in the right side of the head, about the temple and of a ringing in the ear. Wherever the ball has lodged there is no outward indi cation oi its locality. The child has eaten, slept and TALKED CHEEK FULLY and regularly since the stapor of the first two days, and now, twelve days after the wound which all pronosaced fatal, is up and running about the yard.

Arriving at Kan sas City from St. Joseph, Monday, where he had been to view the wreck of the re cent storm, his attention wxs caught, at the Union Depot, by the peculiar uianmivers of an ap parently ill-matched couple. These were a man and a girl the latter on her way from Thayer, Kas., to her home, in Pain, Illinois. The gentleman was the Rev. C D. N.

They had met b chance an hour before, ami although strangers until then, their eyes c.vpresed a miitu il desire for aiijuaiutaiice. The gitl, no doubt, w.is won by the marvelously proer shajieof the preacher; and the heart of the Rev. Mr. CampU-ll went out at once to the tight waisted and saucy eyed brunette. Like the needle attrarted by the magnet, the reverend Adonis gradually gravitated towards her, and in a moment more they were xs thick as two in a bed, or to tie a quainter if less inelegant expression, he set up to her as close xs A SICK KITTEN to a bright lire. From the first encounter of their mutual glances there wxs business iu that pre.ichei s eye, and he spread him self to plca.-e. Like Ilarkis, the lady wxs williu', and the sly glances which she shot at her reverend admirer from underneath he- drooping eye-lx-hes, seemed the silent but vxpreive declaration, "old man I'm there." While yet in the depot it transpired that the lady's ticket wxs for a p.issage over the North Missouri road to St. Iotiis. Her reverend admirer wa.-lhMikcd foi the Pacific train. They compared tickets for a mo ment and then the gentleman set himself to work to get the lady's ticket changed for ONE I.IKE HIS OWN. This was effected, and when tht train .-tarteii they sat liesidc each-other in a palace car. Their acquaintance had ripened rapidly, and from whiscrs soft and sweet, and exprcsive glances it had mellowed into tender caresses. His soft, while lingers toyed lovingly with her hair and touched with no amorous caress the rounded check which was blooming like deathly sick n s-. XedRose and his wife and her sister.

Their breath came quick and short the lady's eye-lids drooped her lip parted and a sigh floated upward to the px-dors cheek. His face flushed, his eyes brightened and he glanced hur riedly fiom the window at the swiftly fall ing shadows of the night. The train dxshed on and the lamps were lit. The pxotor's arm now encircled the girl's waist and the sweet curves of II EU PARTED I.IVS were close to his own. Her eyes were open and a humid haze swam iu their liquid depth. The Rev. Mr. Campbell was not fatigued and yet his bosom heaved with quick spasmodic jerks beneath that tender weight. The mild, ineffectual beaui of his eyes were quenched in a consuming glow. Every nerve of the pastor was thrilling with excitement. Just at this moment the conductor came along and Mr. Campbell inquired with an utterance which vainly endeavored to be calm, if he could be furnished with a berth ina SLEEPI.VC t.'AK? The conductor said that he could. Mr. Campbell said that he wanted a section for himself and daughter (?) and this was sup plied him. It was still too early to retire, although the pastor confessed to being very sleepy, and his daughter (?) bad a severe headache, and he thought the seclusion of a sleepidg birth would do her good. Mr. Campbell then endeavored to prevail on the porter to turn down the light in that part of the car and drop the curtain so that he and his sick daughter (!) could be de luded from the light, but up to the time the train reached Sedalia this object had not been effected. It wii evident, however that in a very few minutes the pastor's wishes would be FULLY CARRIED OUT. The ordeal throagh which Mr. Campbell and his charmer passed from Warrensburg to Sedalia was a severe ene. Indeed, it is doubtful if anybody ever was as sleepy be fore, as those two people were. They were literally dying for repose. On the pastor's nerves particularly the strain must have been intense. He had gone to Kansas City to preach to the Unitarians as a candidate for the pastorate of their church. He had done his best, no doubt, and had preached them AN EXCELLENT HERXON. This, in itself, was reasonably fatiguing, hat when he accidentally encountered that girl at the depot sad had afterwards liter- tornado, and apcars to be rapidly ap pioaching this city, which it will reach, from present appearances, in about two hours.

At about 1:20 p. ni. the storm struck Chicago with great force, and during the twenty minutes it lasted a vast amount of rain fell, and considerable damage was done. The wind blew with great fury, overturn ing teams and busses, demolishing signs, breaking in g!xs and doing other injury. Bxxement were, in some cases, flooded a foot deep, owing to the inadequacy of the sewers to carry off the witer. No loss of life is yet reported. Wires are badly down, but all news Revived up to this time (2 o'clock) indicates that the weather is clearing. TOMAHAWKEBS. The Work of tho Idaho Scalpers Temporary Cassation of Hos tilitiesFriendly Indiana. San Fkancisoo, June 2-. A Boise City press dispatch says Bannock and Shoshone chiefs, were in council with the Governor, yesterday, left for their camp to-day at Great Campos Prairie. One of them, Capt. Boeie Jim, some years ago served with dis tinction under General Crook xs a scout. Two other, Major Jim and Major George Haul, did similar service, and Buffalo Horse, a young Bannock brave, was a scout under General Miles in the RECENT HIOCX WAR with White IXer. Whether the protestation of these Indians 'will be fulfilled will depend upon the success of the Nex Perces and their allies. The situ ation is eritical and the influences to which these Indians are exposed are adverse to the safety of settlements. They number about 500 warriors. Some of the Nex Pierces WILL REMAIN FRIENDLY in any event, but they do not constitute any considerable part of the. fighting. It is significant that the number of Indiana moving about or camped near settlements this rammer is greater than usual. The next Saline county Fair will be held at Marshal), September 4, 5, 6 and 7. total amount of premiams is $3,860.'

A Prairie Lochinvar Who Brings to Mind an Old Reminiscence The Moberly Enterprise-Monitor gives an account of a prairie Lochhivar, who dis- pairing of obtaining the old man's consent to wedding his daughter, took her up be hind him on a fleet steed and tied into Moberly, where the amorous couple were made man and wife. The hero of this ad venture is named Sherwood, and the bride rejoices in the romantic appellation of Joello Gcnola evidently an exotic from some foreign clime. But whatever her name, she is certainly a girl of REMARKABLE PLUCK. For once she had made up her mind Sher wood have a husband in spite of all the old man could do or say. The remarkable circumstance of the es capade reminds the Bazoo. cf an incident which occurred in this county before the war. A young darkey belonging to an estate near where Sedalia now flourishes, had conceived a violent pxsion for a neigh boring raulatress, and taking her one night behind him on an old farm mule, set out for Georgetown to have the ceremony of marriage celebrated after the WHITE PEOPLE'S FASHION. 'Squire Cross, at present a venerable cen tenarian of that rustic villiage was his ob jective point. But in endeavoring to navi gate a mud hole this side of Georgetown Hill, the mule apparently lost his power ot locomotion, and the darkey got down to examine into the cause of it. Unfortu nately he got too close to the animals hind legs and an unexpected convulsion of the mule's extremities shot him out to the side of the road with a violence which resembled the discharge of a cannon ball. "What's de matter?" inquired the pros pective bride, astonished at these hurried movements. "Matter! liar's heep de matter. Dis weddin' ain't acomin' oi." "What's de reason it ain't." "Dar's reason 'nufl dat mule got somfin de matter wid his hind legs, and I e eo sumfin de matter wid my stomach and dat's reason 'nnf to stop a weddin." And it did. It is gratifying to learn that the Moberly enterprise had a happier termination. An Old Landmark Destroyed by Fire. The old Henry Berry homestead, occu pied by William Berry, and situated on the Upper Two-Mile Prairie, in Boone county. caught fire from some unknown cause and was burned down Saturday morning. It was a log house, weatherboardetl and plas tered and contained seven roams. It was built fifty or sixty years ago and was one of the oldest houses in the county. It was in sured for $1,500. The Kansas City 3Wt evidently enter tains an unpleasant reccolectfon ot the manner in which the Basoo exposed the piracies of one of ila attaches ; or else from inadvertence has failed to give proper credit to a number of items from the Bazoo. It is quite possible the Bazoo will he able to survive the displeasure of the Time, but it nevertheless insists that a re putable journal skeakl give proper credits to its coBtemporaics. Clinton, Mo., June 28. We hail a little "boss hurricane," down this way Sunday morning, between six and seven o'clock. The way the wind blew was enough to startle Mrs. Brooks' "Sleeping lolanthe." It didn't blow long, but while it did blow it b!ew as it never blew before. Hail xs large as hen eggs came smashing and crashing through the window panes like a streak of bad luck, making the ter- ':"vd inmates believe that old man Tice I had got on a first-class "mad." When the storm had somewhat subsided, ye gentle ccr.-espondent ventured forth in quest of greenet fields for items. It was then we tound out that we bad indeed had a regular old tiger of a storm. Reports came in thick and f.ist, of terrible injuries received by both man ami beast. "Did you hear about Mr. Harrison's family getting smxshed up?" wxs the first words that greeted our ears. "No ; how wxs it ?" we eagerly asked. "Why, their house blew over on them this mornine." "Anybody killed ?" we interrupted. "No, but they all got p-eity badly hurt." "Where do they live?" "South of the river." Further inquiry only went to confirm the above. The next man heard from wxs one of the immortal Smith family. Smith got struck by lightning, and it was thought for a while that he had gone to join the silent majority, but this thought was soon dissipated by Smith rising to his feet and looking just as natural xs ever. The next sufferer was Geo. R. Bell, a Granger. His hause didn't blow over, but his barn, containiug two or three hundred bushels of corn did, all the same, and Mr. Bell's two valuable horses were crippled thereby. Reports from every part of the county visited by the storm, say that it was the worst one within the memory of the oldest inhabitant. One very noticable feature of the storm, wxs the hail, which was very large and oval shaped and fell with terri ble force. One of the horses attached to the St. Stephens 'buss was knocked by s piece and it was thought for a while that it was killed. Chickens were killed in great numbers, xs were young pigs. Prof. Derf will lecture here this even ing on education. The Cumberland Presbyterian church is about completed. Prof. Cook will teach a month's school here for teachers especial benefit, commenc ing the 9th of July. Wm. MiddlecotT, who has been attend ing school at Fulton, Mo., returned home Thursday.

One of the most attractive leatures of our forthcoming Fourth of July celebra tion, is the baby show. Ten dollars for the prettiest baby and not n cent (or the ugliest, we think is unfair. The fattest baby will call for a five dollar william. J.E.G. A ROMEO'S SEVXlfGX. A Discarded Trover's Taitk im His Sweetheart. Kansas City Times: On Walnut street, near Thirteenth, there resides a family, a member of which is a very pretty girl. A man connected with the Journal, with un exceptionable txte, paid court to this good looking girl, and last Sunday evening went to pay his usual visit. It so happened that he had tarried too long at the beer gardens or some other place where wine was more plentiful than wit, and his visit waa brought suddenly to a close by the old man leading him from the house. But he came back. Tlien the young man of the bouse led him away and talked very emphatically to him; but still the lone lorn lover came back sad leaned wearily upon the gate while he gased like a Romeo upon the lattice of his Juliet. At midnight on Sunday last it rained hard but still the young man stood before the house in which his heart's idol was asleep. The rain had no effect upon him. All night long he watched like a sentinel be- bre thehouse and at daylighi the neigh bors who had been watching his strange duties with suspicion, noticed him still pacing to and fro. When the terrific storm of MondaA morning struck the city, the over still walked up and down before the house and not even the winds of the karri- cane and the drenching rain could mere him from his post. It was not until the smiling sun beamed brightly oat upon him and the obdurate heart of his Juliet mel ted that Romeo consented to go away from the front of that house. A kind word of forgiveness did the business and the lover went home to sleep. He was either crasy or very, very love sick. CRITICISING MUBPHT. How Bis Labora are Appreciated and Hot Appreciated, t The Columbus Dipakk takes the New York Time to task for attempting to he facetious over the Murphy movement and especially funny over that element of the reform which makes temperance apostles out of the reformed drunkard. It ssys the writer evidently does not know any thing about the subject, or he would not write as he does. Whatever may be said about the temperance reform as initiated by Francis Murphy, it certainly matt be classed among the greatest reformations of the day. The very elements that have bees brought to bear "reformed drunkards," if yoa please have been its strength. A few broken words from a man who has beta the victim of intemperance frequently go farther than the most powerful temperance speech ever delivered by a man who only speaks of it theoretically. The elevation of the "reformed drunkard" is one of the features of the "Murphy movement." The fallen man is encouraged by words cf sym pathy and cheer to turn from his evil habits. He is surrounded by better in iuencesand happier associations, sad if he is 'elevated it is not by bad whisky. Prof. Greenwood, "the distinguished educator" from Kansas City, who thinks Missouri has but one Senator, alleging that the other one is dead, probably ob tained his information from the same place that he got his wit i me erase.
