SEDALIA TUESDAY. MAY 7,1878. Luck's a Fortune. The Backley boys of Limerick county, Ireland, a few month ago received 250,000 pounds sterling, the amount left them by a relative who died in Australia. Sow again, hem to the great O'Keefe estate have been found. They, too, live in Irelaad, and D. P. McCarthy, a Burlington atreet cook, ha at received thefinU install- seat OB his ahare amounting to 500,000. Hi frat cousin, Chas. Robert O'Keefe, of j Allahabad, India, died in 1876, and left fortaae estimated at 35,000,000 fterltng. A great many claims of heirship were made, but all thrown aside in favor of the Mc- j Carthy'a. Mr. McCarthy above mentioned being the eldest brother, will, according' to the carton of that country, get the lion' j hare. There's no telling where the light ning will strike. Between Life and Death. Frank Miller, says the Kansas City Journal, the accomplice of Green in the mnrder of Deputy Marshal Hughes, is to be executed at Lexington next Wednesday, May Sth, oxleas something is done either by the supreme coirt or Governor Phelps. His attorney, Major B. L. Woodson, is now in Jefersoa City doing his beat to induce the supreme conrt to gratit a new trial, but no sews frosa him will be known before Mon day. If at that time the court has not dis posed of the case, it is thought to be quite probable that Governor Phelps will grant him a thirty days' respite, to give the court time to decide. It is now the general belief as well as the general hope that the Governor will commute his sentence to im prisonment for life should the court refuse to grant a sew trial.

Parties from Lexingtou, who have seen and con versed with Miller, state that he is in low spirits, but thinks he will be granted a new trial, which the majority of the public think is very doubtful.

Since the organization was not com Dieted HBtil about three p. m., there was little time left for institute work ; but Prof. E. R. Marshal Kellv and Officer Turner arrest ed the msn and conveyed him to the cala boose. On being searched, a chisel and a small piece of plate gla was found upon his terson. The cliieel had no handle but its socket, which was about four inches in length. It vas about three quarters of an inch in width, and very sharp. The affair created considerable excite ment and a large throng was on the platform. Mr. Galla gher repentedly told her story and was complimented upon her quit-knew and nerve. After the man was locked up, he was in terviewed by two reporters and the follow ing is his account of himself : At first he denied stealing the pocket- book, but declared he picked it up on the platform, but seeing that this was too thin, he confe.ed that he saw it in the ladv's pocket and he vtole it, being impelled to the act by starvation. He said his name was John Wilson, that he W39 28 years of age, having been born in Mississippi in 1550. lie was raised in Kentucky, and for the last year has been in Texas, where he worked in different places, from San Antonio to Denison, as a common laborer, having no trade. After that he said he at one time was head sawyer in a saw mill. When asked what motive actnated him to do the deed, he replied that he did not know he saw the pocket book exposed- he had had nothing to eat for some time had been sick with the chills and upon the impulse of the moment seized the pock etbook. He said he never did anything of the kind before, and that it was his first offense. In reply to the question as to how long he had been in the city, he replied twodavs that he came in yenterday, and last night slept in a box car. the man has not a bad countenance, and while relating his story wept frequent ly. He might have been rendered desper ate-by hunger, and seeing the opportunity improved it But the possession of the chisel and piece of glass makes things look rather suspicious. At 11 o'clock he was taken before Justice Clark and pleaded guilty, slating that hunger drove him to the act The Justice told him it was a serious crime, and sen tenced him to a S3Q fine and 30 davs in the county jail. How nice it is to have a garden, and grow your own vegetables! When a young man gets married, the fiist year he is generally afflicted with an insane desire to raine everything he i- bly can, but five years afterward, he has to scratch around pretty lively to raise the the rent. And then sometimes he doil get but a half a crop. Etrly last spring a nearly married couple in Maraud began keeping hotie. Now the happy husband was a cashier in rbankV And as he looked out of the back window over the garden, he determined to raise bis own vegetables. Visions of enor mous onions, the ize of a steamboat bell, cabbages as large as a sugar h'.2liead, floated through his mind, and a stern de termination to take every premium at the next fair fired his brain and nerved his heart. Tiue, he knew nothing of rauing vege tables, but the man who could detect a raised draft need not be afraid to under take raising anything ele, from a prize squash to a four story house. After carefully reading Culiaan's JSufttl World and the U. S. Agricultural Reports. i he went to work in March and had his ground broken up, duly raked and pulver ized. So far, so good. Right here the idea struck him that it is necessary to sow before reaping, so he started nut t. pro cure seed. Of vegetable, his weakness leaned to onion, and now he was married, thank heaven, he could eat as in my a he wanted. Yes, sir, he'd have a whole acre of 'em. Going around to his more experienced friend, he inquired it they had a little onion seed they could spare. Oh, yes, they had lots of it, sved from last year Silver Skins, Iowa Red, Mam moth Red, etc. From each he procured liberally, and by the time he had concluded his rounds he had enough onion seed for the whole county of Saline. Then he planted it. Whole beds of it. And every available little noak or cor ner he would fill up the chinks with onion seed. His friends commended his energy, and encouraged his efforts, and after he had it all planted, they assured him that he had noth ing else to do, that his onions would grow while he slept Which delighted him with asstirancc sweet. It w:is touching to behold his faith in Providence and onions when he started out at sunrise every morning to watch for the first appearance of the liny green slioo above the ground. At last they appeared, and like a hen cackling over her first egg, his joy knew no bounds. Every friend was brought in to see his onions that ht hail planted. After u few days what added to the pleasure of his heart was the fact that etch seed had taken root every one of 'em had come rp. j As the days pvcd, it wa wonderful how those onion, did grow! It was not long before they were a foot high and his admiration was nine feet higher. Still they grew. One day he begin to nudiute. These onions grew too fast. Then the idea struck hitu that the leaves were getting too broai for onions. Doubt and perplexity began to fill his mind. His garden had more the appearance of a young orchard than an onion bed. One day he haiied an old farmer to cojie and look at his onion. The old man got slowly out of his wagon, peered long and earnestly over the top rail of the fence, and as the first look of a-ion Munent gave way to a bnmd grin, he said : 'That ar yingun patch of yourn is bout the thickest and healthiest crap of jimsen j weeds I ve seen this year, dp!' The Cashier's jaw fell at least five per cent, and he is now busily hunting for the fellows who gave him that r.nion seed with a double barreled shot gun.

Carson was thereupon unanimously elected general manager of the road. Railroad men predict that he will make the "Old Reliable" boom. A New Yorker by birth, for the last twenty years he has been a successful railroad man in the west first as general freight agent of the famous Blue Freight line. All railroad men pronounce him a courteous, accommo dating, thorough going man. His resi dence is at Quincy.

There is more fun in walking 10 miles, and bringing home 17,000,000 ticks and one ornary little dried up cat, than there is playing euchre for the beer with loth lowers in vour sleeve. But I tell you, Josephus, there has been uue mighty big men that's gone afishing. There w St. Peter, he was a fisherman. 'Pears to iw ve ee him now, sitting out on a stump with his cork just a-bjbbin up J and down with the liveliest kind of a bite and just as he pulls her up with a jerk, he finds crery blamed bit of the bait gone and a cussed turtle sitting on top of the water waiting for him to put a fresh worm on his hiMtk ! .Mad: Well, I dur.no whether Peter cussed or not, but i tel! you his lips work ed monstrous wicked. The other tlay Mayor Clark and AI. Con nors went out to the Limine, and, sir, we tell you they struck it big. Ther pulled out, and pulled out, and pulled out, till their arms ijivc out. Then they rigged up a windlass and pulled out some more, until there was 8 ton of fidi, lacking 7 pounds lying on the bank, and every mother son of those fish was hollering for a drink of water ! Now thut't a fact. Think we'd tell a lie on Sunday about a few fish ! We're raised too well.

The fish may bite, pretty well, but if yon stay to home, they won't bite you. You hear your uncle.

Aa solemn as the face of a parson whea he puts on his .specs and peeks into the contribution box and finds only 15 cents, one counterfeit quarter and his butcher's bill : "Has our beloved brother departed this iiier "Yes, husband's dead and is hid out" "Ah! he is then at rent!

We wonder this blessed Sunday morning. while the birds and the nigger cooks in the back yaid are singing praises, how many men are cursing the shoemaker who didn't get those new IkkjU done ?

Englnh, the converted clown, formerly connected with 444 Broadway, Sand's & Nathan's Circus. Burt's Varieties, Brooklyn; P. T. Bar num's American Museum, Pickering's West Indies Dramatic Entertainment, A. P. Ball's Circus and Variety Show, llivel Troupe, ti recti Street Theatre, Albany, and numerous other Well known entertainments, related a few chapters of his history last evening in Peter Dwycr's minion, at No. 70 Bar row Street. The hall was crowded. The announcement that the versatile Mr. English was to sneak having been widely circulated, together with the a.-surancc that the seats were free, there had evidently been a desire to sec a converted clown, and there ap peared to be a general Iceling of disan- CAKNK'iY. of point ment when the converted clown appeared minus any of the usual trade marks. Joseph P. English is a tall, genial looking Irishman, with a blonde mustache, an 'aquiline nose and a slight brogue. He speaks rapidly, assuming readily the characters be de scribes, and rambles in bis discourse, touching upon any subject that hap pens to strike his fancy. "I don't know where to begin," said he abruptly, as be stood behind the little reading' desk in the mission ball. "I never write out anything. The ring-master of the first circus I went with as clown said to me when I came to the show the first night : Have you little gags fixM up T "(JIi, no, Bavs 1 ; you just say yes and n it'll be ali right." I jumped right in and ti9ver bad no trouble. So I guess I'll jump right in now. Jy father who lived in Dublin was a strict man and never drank, but be got sick and the doctor prescribed liquor, so be drank a pint of porter every day. I learned to like porter and when I came to America I worked for a man who drank. One day one of the men said, "Joe, you'll have to sleep with the lioss to-night." Sleep with the boss ! Why ?" "He's got the jim-jams." "I il'nWt know what the jim-jams xvas then ; I never exacted to have tbem mvsel., but hadn't learned what American whiskey was." The seaker then gave an amusing description of the "boss" struggling with the "jim jams." which amused his audience vastly. Then he adverted to his child hood's days once more, and related his first experience at a circus, and de scrilied the aspiration that filled his heart to become a clown. "That as piration uever left me and I took the first opportunity after I came to Amer ica," continued be, "to join a traveling show. It busted up the third day out, but I joined another and it busted up too." In fact a large number of the shows Mr. English dtcrilied appeared to be chronically inclined to "bust up." "My wife was the cause of my leaving tl.w show business," said the speaker. "1 asked her to come and see me perform and after the show was out 1 said : "H.m'd you like me ?" "Oh, you looked so ridiculous," said she. That was a new idea to me and she persuaded mc to promise to leave the business. Then I told her, "One more show nnd I quit," and Sullivan's Hibernian ' Bards is the last show I traveled with. Then I jumped out of the frying pan iuto the lire. I began to sell rum in Poughkeepsie. I thought it was a respectable business. I had a license, which said I was a man of good moral character. When I was a clown I bad no character, but when I kept a gin mill the law gave me a character, and if I wanted to travel I could show ay papers to the crowned heads of Europe. I was doing well, when there was a temperance meeting in town. I went to it and everything the speaker said seemed to hit me. The next day a customer of mine came in to ray store, He was half drank, and while he stood leaning against the bar a pretty little girl entered and asked for a quart of Beer. I got it for her as quick as I could, for somehow I did'nt like to see her in my place, and told her to go; but she' pulled the drunken man's coat and said. "Come home pa. ma sent me for the beer, and said you was to come home and drink it." The man woke up and raised his hand to strike the girl. "I'll kill you'11 said lie. "Don't strike her." said I, leaping over the counter; "Go home with her I want to shut up my shop : I shall never sell another glass of liquor.'' I never have. Then I went into the temperance work and good people asked me to quit swearing. "Would you take awav all my comfort savs I." But I did quit before long. Then ther want ed me to auit usinsr tobacco. I won't do it, but I did,-brethren ; thank the Lord. I was conquered at last, and was then willing to give up everything tor religion." . , The siteaker concluded with A earn est exhortation to his hearers?and a promise to tell them some more of his story ro-night. ttivc him a lift t rnt kn' in prayer.
