FOULLY DEALT WITH.
An Old Man Mysteriously Disap
pears Under Circumstances
Which Indicate Foul Flay.
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

the wagon, the actions of whoe driver was

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.

A Disaster oo
the Lexington
Branch Boad
Broken up.
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

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 Distressing Accident.
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

is no more than a shirt collar, shall be burnt

ROBBED BY FOOT-FADS.
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

it is quite probable that they are by this
time in cu.Hto.lv.

that it would go into convulsions.
Why, it must be nursed where is its

"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

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

youngster requires is not in his line any
more than it was in that of the young
lady's.

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

but if such is bis intention he will be dis

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

tiuue five days, at the ground about our
mile from Hrowustille, Saline county.
Tilt: GROUNDS
are situated south of and adjacent to the
Sweet Springs ground-. Ther are verv
handsomely laid ofl and improved. A few
months ago it was a thicket of underbrush,
occupied by the vagrant cattle and stock of
the neighlHirhood. Now, the hand of man
has cleared the underbrush, trimmed the
trees, and put thereon as good a half-mile
track as there is in this portion of the State.
An amphitheater capable of seating two
thousand people fronts tbe south and home
stretch of the track. A pagoda of conven
ient distance fioiu the amphitheater, thirty
feet high, overlooks the whole ground.
The Secretary and Director's buildings two
stories high, as well a floral hall of sufficient
capacity, are all substantial buildings.
STOCK STALLS

Marshall band had executed its second
piece a delegation of Saline county bovs

SCORE'S TENANTS.
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

The
young wife pleaded ia vaia for
its pos?ion. The old people refused to
give it up. So she resorted to stratagem to

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

threatening axe hung upon their rear, sad

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.
