Last Tuesday and old German named Schult, living near the Kenton and Pettis county line, started in a two-horse spring wagon to visit a daughter living in Polk county. He loaded his wagon with pear-hen aad watermelons to sell by the way, and for thi purpose proposed to go through Cole Camp and Warsaw, in each of which places he had business. He reached Cole Camp all right, but left there in company WITH A TKAMP, who he consented should ride with hi n as far as Warsaw. The next day, Wednesday, Ban passed through Clinton, driving a team which answered to the one belonging to Mr. Schult, but the old man was not with it. On the contrary the driver is believed to be the tramp pickad up at Cole Camp. Mr. Schnlt never reached Warsaw, and nothing has been heard of him since. It is believed that he has been FOC1XY DEALT WITH. His son has started in pursuit and has ( one directly to his sister's in Polk county. If his inqniries there should result as it !. feared they will, in the discovery that that the old gentleman has not reached his destination, he will endeavor to overtake the wagon, the actions of whoe driver was efficiently singular to attract attention in liBton. At present the case is full of sua icion and it is not improbable th.it A TERRIBLE CHIME baa been committed. The country is over run with vagabonds ready to commit any deed which promises them money or plun der as its reward. Utiles ti e vagrant laws are rigidly inforced and an effort is made to suppress this growing evil of idleness and vagabondage, we will enter upon an era of crime of which murder and robbciy will be the conspicuous features. The Wild Man of the Woods on Hie Travels. It l now in the neighborhood of Mober ly that the wild man of the woods can lie seen- is all his startling grandeur with glittering eyes, protruding eye-balls, and a beard which sweeps the ground, dressed in bair, with an occasional rag for ornament. If be has not been seen, he has been heard from by the Entrrprisr-Jlon it or, and at last accounts was industriously engaged IN CHASING WOMEN and frightening children. lie is re pre seated as seven feet tall, has an arm as muscular as a burr oak, and carries a club of the size and ditnensioLs of a pile dri ver. He is a veritable demon of the wil derness, and although he is not supposed to be a cannibal, and has never been known to dine ON SLAUGHTERED MEN and women, it is certain that he eats raw roasting earn with avidity. He was last seen interviewing a boy who had been sent to recover a quilt which bad been hung out to dry in the bushes. He yelled at the youngster to drop that quilt, as he wanted it to fold around him as a sort of wood land drapery and lie down TO PLEASANT DREAMS. The quilt, however, was required at Jiome, and the urchin clung to it with the I glial courage of despair, carrying it away in the face of the banted demon, who has nothing now to shield him from the inclem eat weather and the chill air of night but the leaves of the forest. This, however, is sot regarded as a bign toned proceeding in that part of the country, and the men are preparing to organise A WILDMAX'S IIUNT. aad if that festive wanderer of the forest falls in their way, he will be captured and be compelled to explain with explicit directness, and without circumlocution, wherefore he does thuslv.

A Freight Train About half past four o'clock yesterday afternoon a freight train on the Lexington Branch road, in charge of Conductor Oran, was backing up toward Sedalia, a mile and -t half out of towu, when it encountered an I iuijierfecl rail, which, in connection with the damaged tank of the engine, precipita ted the train into the ditch. The engine MOUNTED THE KAIL and ran along it about fifteen feet before it careened to the ground and went plun ging through the soft earth. The cars were piled together by the accident something like a rail fence, and were greatly damaged I ana oroken. rortunatelv onlv one was a w loaded. THE ACCIDENT OCCURRED opposite the residence of Mr. James Boul den. It was in a sort of hollow, and the wonder is that the fireman, Mr. William Johnson, and Engineer Brodin were not instantlv killed. Tlie train had gone out with ties, and on returning wa picking up the loose can along the road. Near where the accident took place a number of sec tion men were al work, and these were im mediately placed in requisition to right the cars and CLEAR THE TRACK, which was accomplished about five o'clock this morning. Three cars beside the ca boose were got back on the track and brought back to Sedalia. Four cars and the engine weie subsequently ditched by the wreckers, and remain at the scene of tlie disaster. The escape of the engineer and fiteman under the circumstances was ! little less than miraculous. One car was telescoped iu the engine, and another piled horizontally on its Mile. The accident caused A SLIGHT DELAY in the arrival of the Lexington passenger, but this morning the road is all right again and trains are moving as usual. Married. On the 9th, at Cameron, by the Kev.

Young Zedar, a boy about fifteen years of age, living on Sandy, Jefferson county, met with a serious accident one day last week. He was working with a threshing machine, and in stepping over the tumb ling rod, it caught his clothing, and before it could be stopped the skin was all torn off the lower part of his body. Dr. Pipkin thinks he can save the boy's life, but he will be badlv msimed. Frightened at a Rattlesnake. Mrs. James T. Misp, of Jefferson county, heard one of her little boys screaming in the field one day last week, and on going to his relief she found that he was" frightened at a rattlesnake, and .did not know which way to run. She had no suitable weapon, near at hand, but rather than risk letting the snake escape, she attacked it with a small stick, and after a gallant fight suc ceeded in killing it. It struck at her sever al times but he managed to keep out of its reach. It had twelve rattles. Robbery at Mayor Clark's. It is bad enough when the immoral thief lays hiasacreligious paws upoi. the prop ty of an ordinary citizen, but when he snatches up the wearing apptrel of f-acred authority, the matter becomes serious, and demands an instant re-adjustment of disorganized society. Last night some un known thief invaded the premises of Mayor Clark and took from a clothes liasket, set- iug under the tree near the kitchen door, THE FAMILY WASH. The clothes had been hung out on a Hue during the day and had been packed in the basket at nightfall ready to be fatten into the house; bnt by some oversight the sei vant neglected to do it. Some thief prowl ing around saw (he linen bonanza and ap propriated the pile and walked off with it, leaving, however, the basket. The conse quence whereof is, that the citizens of Se dalia are compelled to see their Mayor go ing around to-day WITH SOILED LINEN. The usually serene countenance of his honor, this morning wore a gloomy aspect and he is now busily engaged in preparing au or dinance in which it is proposed that even' thief who can be pr.ived to have unlawfully appropriated another man's linen, even if it is no more than a shirt collar, shall be burnt alive.

A Howard County Farmer Falls Among the Philistines and Comes to Grief. A gentleman from Boonvillc gives the Bazoo the subjoined particulars of a rather remarkable incident which occurred oppo site that city Friday night, it being no less than the robbery and attempted murder of Roliert Tumer, a well known citizen of Howard county. Mr. Turner had been to Boon vi He, and had in his po&e.sion at the time the attack was made, about FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS. The men (there were two of them.) crossed the river with him, and after land ing walked on ahead. It Is supposed they knew that he had a large sum of money on his person. Having reached a secludtd place, they waited tor lum to come up, when he was hit violently over the head with a club and knocked insensible. Of coarse the men immediately proceeded TO ROB UIM, and succeeded in doing it. It was so dark dark that Mr. Turner was unable to recog nize the features of the ruffians, but suspi cion points to two men who have been lay ing around Boon vi He for several days, and it is quite probable that they are by this time in cu.Hto.lv. NURSING A BABY. A Man Who Felt Himself Slightly Out of Hia Element. Ordinarily, a man imagines that he is capable of doing anything, but it is qties- tionable if auy can be found to volunteer j ly alluded to, in which it is mads an of more than once to keep a four mouths baby j fence punishable with death to steal the for a few hours, during the ahceiie of its Mayor's linen. mother.

The man took it up and hurriedly strode up aud down the room, talking to it GrMVer .nj Mr. Greenleaf continues in honied words and bescaching voice.

"There's some cold meat and potatoes in the cubbord," he replied. The young ladies laughed in derision. "Why, it can't eat that. It wantV milk." . it t i 1 11. . 1 it "But it's cold milk. You can't give a baby cold milk." Well, what am I to do?" asked the man in dispair. r or the yells ot the young ster were growing nromentarily more frcn- tic. The unhappy parent began to think that it would go into convulsions. Why, it must be nursed where is its mother?" "She's out but ain't I nursing it?" he inquired, in a tone of indignant surprise. The young ladies looked at each other and giggled. "I don't mean in that way," suggested one of the bold bad girls. "Well, if it wouldn't be too much trouble to yon, I'd like yon to show me how." The youag lady f ushed up and said that she didn't think she could. But happily at this point in the conversation the mother came in. It was not long before the baby's cries were hushed, aad the gentleman is now satisfied that the nursing which that youngster requires is not in his line any more than it was in that of the young lady's. It is sad to see an intoxicated person on the street. How much more so ia it to see a dull and sickly Baby rendered so by tbe use of dsngerous opiates?

The Kazoo has all along urged the neces sity of the farmers and business men of this county employing every possible exertion toward making our coming Fair the most brilliant exhibition ever held in Central Missouri. It does not feel that it Is at all trespassing upon public patience in again calling attention to the subject and renew ing the advice it has previously given. It is a triumph which can he very easily achieved if we set about it in THE RIUHT WAY, and that L for every man who feel a pride in the chv and count v to do his best to I make not onlv a ruccess (it is sure to be that), but a triumph.

To do this every man miiKt take an interest in it, and feel that iiHiti his exertions alone the entire exibi tinn will rest. If thi generous spirit can be awakened there need he no fears of the j result, and Pettis county will class her ex hibition with the most brilliant achieve ment iu her annals. This is saying a good deal, but nothing more than the capacity and resources of the county and city war rant us in expecting, lxt every man put ! his SHOULDER TO THE WHEEL an'd work early and late for a triusapl which when obtained will put us far in the lead of the most ambitious rivals in Cen tral Missouri. . MAYOR CLARK'S LINEN. He Finds a Part of it Hid Under a Door Step Laying for the Thief. The shocking intelligence published in yesterday's Bazoo, reciting the fact that Mayor Clark had been robbed of the great er part of his family linen by some prowl ing vagabond, occasioned as it should have done a very profound sensation in the city. The idea of the chief magistrate of Sedalia, going arouny town with A SolLPD SHIRT, was to say the least disquieting in tlie ex treme. But the sensibilities of those who were agitated by the aniinuiicement will be creally relieved when they read in the Bazoo this evening that the Mayor has dis covered a part of the property. The bun dle after bein-; removed from the clothes basket was taken a short distance from hi residence, and opened. Having selected a half dozen fine t-hirts and some articles of lady's wearing apparel, the thief rolled THE BALANCE OF THE BUNDLE up, and thrust it under the steps of a shop nearby. It is possible that he meant to call and get it at a more convenient season, but if such is bis intention he will be dis appointed. The luudle was found yester day and re -hired to its owner. The Mayor, however, had some sort of a blind prepared and put in iu place in the hope that the thief would call last night, but he didn't come. The probobility is that he wa suf ficiently near by to note the REMOVAL OF THE ARTICLES, by the Mayer and the sui'sequent proceed ings "interested hiiu no more." lie that as it may, the Mayor is again seen upon the streets with an immaculate shirr front, and his smile is again childlike and blind. He ha even giveu over the ordinance previous- Pleasant Hill Items. Pleasant Hill, Sept. 12, 77.

A Family Commotion About the Possession of a Babr An Infu riated Parmer Chases his Son-In-Law with an Axe. On the estate of Mr. William More, some mile West of Sedalia is a tenant farmer in whose family reside a widowed daughter with one child. This bereaved relict was young, pretty and withal charm- lDS in manner and fxociaating in coaversa tion. After a due season of monrnin? and a reasonable amount of regret for the dear departed, the pretty widow began to think of the delights of wedded bliss, and soon SHE SET HER CAP and captured an admirer. Whether like another Ruth she went glean ing in the fields of n neighboring Boaz, or whether the young farmer simply fell a victim to charmes which here in Missouri are as potent ai those of the pretty Moabitish widow matters little for the par poses of this story. It will tuJtce ta say that she captured him and ia time taey were married. But before her farsser sponae had shunted oaTol this mortal coil he left her a single pledge of his sieeuoa. It had come with her in her widowhood te its grand parents and had worked its way into their love. They cherished it list the AFPLE OF THEIR EYE and when the second marriage teak place, bargained to keep the babe The young wife pleaded ia vaia for its pos?ion. The old people refused to give it up. So she resorted to stratagem to gain it aud one dy recently went to her father's home and stole it away. Then there was commotion ia the household. The old lady shrieked and cried and refused to be comforted because the young one was his return home to the residence of his soa-in- law, determined to get possession of that baby or DIE IK THE ATTEMPT. But he found his daughter obdurate and her husband indiferent. His entreaties proving unavailing he armed himself with aa axe, and rushed to the rescue of the little one. That gray haired man with blood in his eyes, aud a glittering axe uplifted was an ap palling spectacle. The old man came on like the rush of a thunderbolt, bat the young people did not stay to encounter the onset. They abandoned the house sad took to Might. Pausing not upon the order of their going they went at once. To use an expressive vulgarisnfMthey got up and lit." The old man however with hia death threatening axe hung upon their rear, sad his impicatioas WCKE LOUD AND DEEP. The chase led through a corn field to a neighbors a mile aad a halt away. Beach ing that asylum they rested in comparative security. But it was thought advisable to have the old man arrested and bound over to keep the peace. For this purpose a jus tice of the peace was applied to and n warrant issued and put in the hands of an officer who took the beligerent grand-father into custody. The case was tried yester day, and it is presumed that the family difficulty has by this time been adjusted. A DOCTOR'S SHOT. Young; Modie's Tuseral st Isde pendence The Homicide im Cus tody.
