SEDALIA TUESDAY. MAY 28, 1878. cknowledcment. Dr. and Mn. Branson Uke this opportu nity to tender their sincere thanks to the kind friends and neighbors, who so kindly sided and sympathised with then daring their late affliction, the remembrance of which will always be cherished in their hearts. IThe Washout. The M., K. A T. passenger train from the south, which was due in Sedalia yesterday morning at nine o'clock, did not arrive until 4:15 on account of the damage done to the road near Rockville by the washout. The work of transferring passengers and baggage still continues, but will not last more than a few days at the farthest. There is a large force of men at work repairing the track, and all trains will begin running regularly by Monday Fomeroy's Lecture. Pomeroy don't like silver, but the public are hereby notified that J. W. Burress & Co. are partial to that or any other kind of currency, and will give a liberal discount of their goods instead of off the money. So bring along silver or any other kind of money and make your own selections out of the best stock ml clothing, hats, caps and gents' furnishing goods in Central Missouri, at prices that will astonish you. A full line of piece goods for those who desire to have clothing made to order. The Democratic Central Execu tive Committee, Assembled as per call yesterdy afternoon in dalia. There were present J. A. C. Brown, Chairman; Matthew Payne, John L. Hall and Thomas Quinn. An effective address was agreed upon to the people of Pettis county, setting forth in terse terms the ob jects and purposes of the committee in the approaching campaign. It was determin ed to have a delegate convention for the nomination of county officers, to meet at the Circuit Court room June 17th. The same body will also select delegates to the coming Senatorial and Congressional and State conventions. A Drummer Bobbed. Mr. Emmit Harris, traveling for a whole sale liquor house in Kentucky, nnd acting as their resident sgent in Sedalia, was robbed last evening, either on the train be tween Beaman and Sedalia, or on the Garri son House platform. The thief may keep the money which he took, eleven or twelve dollars, if he will return the pocketbook and contents, namely, about $500 or $600 in notes. This article will probably meet the eye of the thief, and he is politely re quested to settle as requested, and no ques tions asked. The notes can be of no use to the man, and any one among the best ranks of the profession would do the "square thing" when politely asked. A Little Fisticuff. A white boy by the name of Henry Hob mer and a negro boy by the name of "Snowball," from Olterville, got into a fight near the Catholic church yesterday evening, and Hosmer getting the wont of the fight, pulled a pistol from his pocket, and made preparations to blow daylight clear through the negro, when Officer Gos sage came along and captured both youug Hosman and the negro. They were both taken to the cooler and locked up. When he searched them, the officer found a Blung shot and a pistol in the possession of young Hosmer. He confiscated the weapobrand put them away for further inspection. Both boys will appear before the Recorder Monday morning for trial. Bobberies. Quite a number of bold and successful robberies have been committed in the southern portion of the city, during the past few weeks, and the perpetrators have been very successful in eluding the officers of the law ; but it is a long lane that has no turning, and the Bazoo predicts that ii these midnight marauders continue their depredations much longer, they will be de tected in their crimes and sent to a place where they cannot commit any robberies, namely, Jefferson City. The policemen who do duty at night are keeping the south part of the city under constantsurveillance, and it is to be hoped that they will succeed in arresting and bringing to justice some of the villains who have so long been the ter ror to the citizens of the city. An Incident. The day before the picnic at Jefferson City an employee of a well known resident, approached his master. "Please Sir," said he "let me have fifty cents." "What for?" "I want to go to the picnic, sir." "Won't a pass do you as well?" . "Yes sir, I guess so sir." "Well I think I can get you a pass. You are entitled to one, and board and lodging there for a year or two. You stole a pair of blankets out of my house a short time since, and they are now in your house." The man said nothing more about pienics to Jefferson City, and the blankets, re turned to their proper place in some mys terious manner. The Poetry of Books. "Music hath charms To soothe a savage breast, . Bead a rock, Or calm a hornet's nest." The reader has probably seen this quota tion before, but it is apropos to the discourse that occupies us, my brethren, at this sol emn witching hour. Sermons can be found in streams, and books in running brooks, and rocks of all kind?, convenient for bear ing at heads can be discovered by the pa tient geological scientifical student on any one of the streets in Sedalia; What we are tryine to get at is rocks. Not the vulgar synonym for money, but genuine rocks. And we say, with grief, that one of our colored fellow-citisens now lies in the cala boose, charged with heaving rocks at a maiden's head. There was more truth than poetry in those rocks. James Robinson was jealous of Miss Mary Pierce, because she loved Gilbert Myers, cook at the Garrison House, and scorned the uafortasate Robinson, because he coald not wear diamond studs ia his shirt front. Hence he heaved rocks at her bead; Bobinson was arrested oa a warrant, and mas committed by Becorder Con rath. He is a said to be a graduate of Jefersoa City penitentiary. "KEEP TO THE RIGHT, AS THE LAW DI RECTS." sr m o. As the visitor enters and pass through the various drives in the beautiful park of Tower Grove, the frequent and only admonition that meets the eye is, "Keep to the Right, as the Law directs." "Keep to the Right, a the Law directs" This warning o'er Life's Rate, Doth greet the eye ami but reflects Tl.e future of each fate. "Keep to the Rii;ht, as the Law directs," Nor waver from its course ; This simple guide with wisdom check! All error at its source, "Keep to the Right" though flowers lie In U-auty at the left Their brightness hides from careless eye Dark pits, of hope bereft. "Keep to the Right" though stoop the way. It leads to "Perfect Rest ;" Where Weeding hearts from Sorrow's sovay Find surcease with the blest, "Keep to the Right" if gone astray The path lies at your feet ; There's danger fraught with dull delay Where cros roads mingling meet. "Keep to the Right, as the Law directs," And hold this truth in sight ; Life's failures are but Life's neglects In choosing Left from Right. Toweb Gkove I'akk, May l?th, 1678. BOBBEBY. Wm. Scott's House Burglarized. The residence of Mr. Wm. Scott on In diana street was entered by a burglar on last Wednesday night and ransacked, but the thief did not get anything of value. however. Thursday morning Mr. Scott discovered that his bouse had been entered but could not miss anything. On Thurs day night the same performance was repeat ed, the thief entering the house by raising one of the windows. He met with the same success as he did on Wednesday night. Friday morning when Mr. Scott arose, he discovered that bis house had been entered a second time and made a thorough search of the premises in order to obtain some clue to the burglar, and also to see if any thing had been taken. He could not fiud the least clue that would lead to the discov ery of the person who entered the house and after a thorough search, he found that he had not lost any thing by the would-be thiefs visits. After the second visit of the thief, Mr. Scott "took a tumble" and thought he would lay in wail for the burglar. He thereupon got his weatons in readiness and set up the beet part of the niuht, waiting for the thief to put in an appearance. The thief, however, did not trouble Mr. Scott Friday night nnd he was spared the pleau of putting a bullet hole through a burglar's heart The man who entered the house probably done it to convince Mr. Scott that it was a very easy matter to enter a residence without being caught. These burglaries have been going on at intervals for a long time past, and it seems as if the citizens of Sedalia had learned a lesion by this time. and take some steps to prevent their houses being entered and robbed in this wholesale manner. DIED In this citv, May 22nd. of membraneous croup, Gaily, infant son of Dr. and Mrs. BronBon, aged 1 Tear, 9 months and 22 days. OBITUARY. Toll the bell softly, With kindly hand spread Flowers on the coffin, Baby is dead. Sweet Gaily Branson ; he was "only a little child," a bud, a blossom, to the great world of humanity, and yet to the hearts that knew and loved him, he was a priceless gift, a precious gem, a perfect creation of an Infinite God that brought within his magic presence something that makes earth typical of Heaven, some thing that makes home divine and something that has power to fill Life with the sweetest music When the angels came, when the "Golden Gate" waB left ajar, when the "Silent Messenger" caught and clasped the tiny casket that held the prisoned soul' ah ! then, for the mourning father, for the despairing mother, the very sunshine faded and the light drifted under a cloud ot such grief as never more can be forgotten or erased by any triumph of Time. His plaintive "Papa 'Bye" as he floated out on the River held the saddest farewell that ever human ears can hear, for alas ! The winsome fare, the tossing curls aglow, The little feet that pattered to and fro, The pretty wisdom of one happy year, All ended in such bitter, bitter woe, When Baby died. Here are the shoes that Baby used to wear, The tearful vision of a step so sweet, The mother folds her hands in speechless prayer, And mourns the silence of the missing feet. So, leave the chamber to its quiet gloom, And put aside the little cradle bed, Dear Gaily close the sacred room Tis filled with mem'ries of our angel dead. The fragrant bloom upon the climbing vine, In its sweet breath, his name will keep, And some day, we shall kiss again The lips that now "are locked in sleep, Tho' Baby's dead. Rosa Peakle. Thrown from His Horse. At about 1 o'clock this morning, as Michael M'Cabe was riding past the back portion of the Garrison House, the saddle on which he sat was turned and he was thrown to the ground severely injuring the man, who profusely bled large quantities of beer and whiskey at the mouth when car ried on the stretcher to the Station House, under direction of Marshal Smith. M'Cabe is a gardener liviug in the north part of the city. later : It was ascertained shortly after he was placed in the calaboose that he had died from his injuries. The last words were. "G d d d that mule to h 1 !" Officer Conner made an examination of the man and also notified several other per sons who also made an examination. Mc Cabe is a gardner, and lives about a mile north of the city on the old Gerye place. He leaves a wife and six or seven child ren to mourn his untimely decease He was about thirty-eight years old.

Fsshiosabls Pic-nic at Jefferson City The Basoo Mam Goes Down on the Cow-catcher of the Engine He Loses Hie Hat and Meets with Other Misfoi tones. The United Sons of Zion returned from their pic-ntc down east at an early hour Saturday morning, and have settled them selves to their usual work. A number oi the beautiful chocolate colored belles looked somewhat the worse for the trip as Ibey de scended from the train having eaten a good deal of ice cream, and bananas and other wise dissipated while away. The gay streamers on their gorgeous hats, drooped in the cold rain, like wet dish clauts in the hands of kitchen wenches, and their tired laces, betokened an unended jamboree of twenty-four hours duration, amid the seduc tive scenes of Jefferson City, beneath the shadow of THE STATE PENITENTIARY, and within sight of the white glistening walls of the other place of amusement in the heretofore mentioned place, which is called the capital building. The forms and bearing of feomeof the component parts of the society were striking in the extreme. Mr. Marshall, President of the organiza tion is the finest looking gentleman in Se dalia, and had chance decreed his birth several degrees south he might have been the governor of a state or a member of congress. But his- good luck has saved Mr. Marshall any such fate, and he can proudly boast that he is an eminently re spected person he has never been sent to either Washington or Jefferson City on any official business. In other words his rec ord is clean, and he has never been in either the penitentiary or in congress. The pic-nicers brought borne with them A RICH SILK BANNER, presented by the girls to the boys. Mr. Marshall made the presentation speech, which was one of the happiest effort of his life. The representative of the Bazoo who attended the excursion incog riding on the cow-ctcher to Jefferson City and re turning in the smoking car, lost his notes, otherwise the oration would appear in full, in these columns this morning. TheIAZ'X) man was asleep in the car, with his head thrust partially out of the window when the conductor came along, and punched him on the shoulder, in order to see his ticket. As a result the Bazoo man was startled so suddenly from his dreams that in drawing his head in from outside, his hat was knocked off and lost on the road. In that hat was his elaborate sketch of the whole affair, now lost irrevocably to the world, amid the long weeds and grasses of the prairie. The conductor offered to buy the Bazoo man ANOTHER IIAT, and several members of the United Sons of Zion were desirous of reimbursing him for the loss of both his hat and his notes, but this the indefatigable representative of this journal politely refused. He is always ready for emergencies, and pulling from his coat tail pocket a small traveling cap, told his friends that he was all right as far as head gear was concerned, and that he would draw on his imagination and a bottle of benzine for his report of the affair, which he has done with his usual ability. A LATER INTERVIEW discloses the fact that the banner was not presented at Jefferson City as stated, becme the wife of Priest Marshall, when taking a a walk, fell and wounded herself in the side. The patty took dinner in the State Houe.

Some candidates in town this week, shaking IiriuLs with many friends and try ing to make more Prof. Houton gave a musical festival here, on Thursday evening of this week. A very entertaining affair. The Lamonte string band will give a strawlierry festival in the Grange Hall, in this place, on Tuesday evening next, for the benefit of said band. Our mill is progressing slowly ; some of us will yet have to go to Sedalia to haye our corn cracked. We uo r.ot like to do so as the roads are ho bad. The Rev J. T. Paxlon, of Marshall, will commence a series of religious services at the Presbyterian church, in this place, to-morrow at eleven o'cloch a. m., to con tinue through the week. Vincent Terry, our new road overseer, is stirring up the road hand, and the able bodied and unablebodied men on the roads this week, and for the next six weeks, will be found around the mud holes, and all are requested to come up to help. You say in the Bazoo who will agitate the draining of the pond at Sedalia again.

The Buckeye, the D. M. Osborne and the Marsh haveslers (all being self-binders) were out in the green wheat fields this week ;all done good and clean work. The Marsh harvester is said to be the lightest draft machine, by good judges. Prejudice often rules in the physical treatment of babies. They are allowed to suffer and scream with pain from colici flatulence, bowl disorder, etc., when some simple, reliable and safe remedy as Dr Bull's Baby Syrup, would give almost im mediate relief and perfect ease to the little sufferer.

Some say that he came m on the freight. Aad by this it is not inferred that he stole his ride. There was a grand committee of green backers and laboring men appointed to wait nn him at the depot, and escort him triumphantly to a free lunch at the Garri son House. But he outwitted them all. And reg istered at Sichers'. There the B zoo man saw his shining bald head through the window, citing his pea with " fork. Hear this ye laboring men. Your cham pion of labor dines at the Delmontcos of Sedalia, and lie cats his peas with a fork. He also wears a clean shirt. And siorts a gold watch chain. The Bazoo man would have "tackled" him when at dinner only he knew that it is dangerous to disturb anv one of the ani mal kind when lie is feeding. Therefore the fUzoo man stood in the entry, until the Hon. Mark M. Pomeroy came out, when he approached him with outstretched hand.

"You want money T "God knows I do" tears stood in the Bazoo man's eyes. "Well we are going to give it to you." "Then where is it?" "Well you have got to wait until we pas some resolutions." "Your conventions ?" "Yes sir. And then all you fellows will have all the money you want." The Bazoo man could hardly control bis feelings. "Have a chew of tobacco Mr. Pomeroy ?" said he, pulling out a plug. 1 never chew. And what is more, I never employ an editor or compositor on my paper that chews or smokes."

STATE SUNDAY SCHOOL CON VENTION. Closing Proceedings Tho Breth ren Leave the City Broko Up But Not Basted. It Is clearly evident that the gocd peo ple of Sedalia, as well las the delegates of the Sunday School Convention at the Christian church, have "passed from death into life" on this great question, if we are to judge from the large number who at tended the closing ceremonies on Friday night. All appeared to be thoroughly aroused to the ituportanceof thisgreat ques tion, and determined that neither "the gaites of hell" nor wet weather should prevail against them. The spacious audi ence room was literally p.icked with an audience that, in point of appearance and education, would do credit to any citv. After singing "Revive Us Again," "Always Cheerful," "Pass Me Not," and "Halleluah Tis Done," in which Elder Cline gave us a specimen of true heartfelt singing, Elder Gatiison introduced ELDEP. JOHN A. BROOK?, who proceeded in a very able, simple aad feeling manner to present the subject of "how to preach so as to convert the young;" taking for a foundation for his remarks, I the commission given to the disciples by the world's Redeemer, found in the last two verses of .Matthew. He drew a very effect ing picture of the relation of adults and children, and of the important part of the great drama of life these little cherubs would .eoon play, and urged that to "train up a child in the way it should go," we should enter upon the work the moment the little prattler could realize the neces sity of being saved from impending dan- tger. In answer to the great question oi "How? 'to do this, the speaker ottered arguments, accompanied by forcible illus trations to show that all that was necessa ry was to tell them the ST0KV OK THE CROSS, and picture to them the acts ot the blessed Savior while upon earth ; giving them to understand his loving kindness and tender mercy. He concluded his remarks with telling effect, by reference to the life of use fulness of the Kev. Gen. Richard Gano, who, at the age of ten years, gave his heart to God and who, amid the falling of bullets and the clashing of arms ever krpt the ban ner of Christ unfolded and lead the corn reads to Christ. At the conclusion of his remarks Elder Cline sang "Come to Jesus,' and the upturned faces of a large portion of the congregation evinced that "hell was a good way off and Heaven very near" to their hearts. ELDER CARRISON pronounced the valedictory, in which he showed conclusively that he was master of the situation. It was not voluminous, but it was powerful aad falling tears that covered the cheeks of many said in lan guage that could not be mistaken that his fte,jRg foutj. a ,odgmcnt hearts of his auditors. Elders Monser, Kagland, Felix and Dalhv were chnnen deiWatea tn the in. proaching glate Convention, after which he COBreation Mnjf ujn the Sweet By . Rw , . , nrtmnnm.tmm thm benediction.
