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.

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

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,

good judges.
Prejudice often rules in the physical
treatment of babies. They are allowed to
suffer and scream with pain from colici

He is here!
But how did he come?
That is the question.
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.
''I've got nothing for you" said Brick. ,SI

"You mi-take my minion sir!" said
Bazoo man taking off his hat, "I appear
before you air to welcome you to Sedalia in
the name of the press."
Brick ' countenance fell.
"And you want to "

side of us. We are the Bazoo. Is this
greenback and labor movement making
any headway?"
"Ye sir, all over the country."
"In Iheeastr'
Everywhere, my succulent scribbler. We
have three hundred clubs in the state of
New York alone."
"What is the difference between the Na
tional party and the Greenback parly?"
"One wants to cut the dog's tail off at
once and have done with it. The other
believes in shaving the dog's tail oil gradu
ally."
"Which wants to cut the dog's tail away
at one slash?"
"The Greenback party. We want to pay
the national debt in greenbacks', ba5ed on
resources of the country."
"But suppose it gets o a gold dollar is
worth two dollars in greenbacks, would
not some one get cheated, if our money
! was next to worthless?"
"Our greenbacks are good enough for us
They are based on the resources of the
country and the pledged honor of the great
American nation. We can hold our own
bonds. It is not necessary for Kuroeaii
capitalist to have them. Nowadays every
laboring man's nose is held to the grind-
The Bazoo man instinctively placed his
hand to his nose.
"Is not that your condition?''
"It is."
"Are you rich?''
"Me! me, a newspaper man, and rich?"
"Then you are broke V
"Dead broke."
Mr. Pomeroy's hand sought his pocket,
and pulled out a tooth pick.
"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."
"Would you be willing to put up fur the
drinks for me and my friend here?"
"No air."

"I refuse as a matter of morality, I do
not believe in drinking."
"Well gim'me a ticket to your concert I"
"It is a lecture," said Mr. Pomeroy.
"Then write us a pass."
Pomeroy did as requested.
"Brick, old fellow," said the Bazoo man,
affectionately placing his hand on the
Greenbacker's leg, "I -used to -know you
when yon was in New York, when you
started your daily paper there, with Joe
Howard, as managing editor. Joe is a tough
one. He is the ablest liar on the
American press. He is the biggest newspa
per fraud between the Pacific and the At
lantic. I heard yon address borne of the
Seventh Ward boys one night. You wore
a thirty pound watch chain on that occasion.
It was that watch chain that killed you in
New York among the boys that and your
silk velvet collar. They made the mistake of
thinkingyou werehigh-toned.when wereyon
really one of 'em. You talked down there
among the roughs, with a d d clean white
shirt onyourback, and the boys were scared.
But you have toned down since then, my
Bricky. You have decreased thesiae of
your watch chain You are getting fat in
the stummuck. I take it yeu feed well in
Chicago ? Those Greenbackers give you all
the corn aad oats vou want? Nn offense I
hope, bat tell me, why have they got the ,
picture ofa coffin on the banner that is hung
out ia front of the hall where you are to,
hold forth?
"That is not a a coffin. It is a brick,"
said Mr. Pomeroy, with an air of disdain.
"Oh ! many people in Sedalia thooght it I
was a coffin. It looks like oae a little ways
off. No offense I hope. And it is a brick
aad not a coffin," spoke the Bazoo mas
ramiaatively. "Well, good-day, sir."
"We dang oar banner
Oa the outer walla."
The cry is
"Still taey cease."
If the man tkat paiatad the brick oa that

may the Bazoo be hashed !

rapu pen ami mk sketch of the speaker
ith hi usual inimitable rapidity of execu
tion and accuracy of artistic touch :
Mr. Pomeroy advanced to the front of the
platform saying, that, "in come places men
are nil alive in this important question, in

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

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

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,

The managers of the Sweet Springs, with

who were very much pleased and delighted
by their visit.

entertained them, that they had decided to

Accordingly Sweet Springs was chosen

St. John, it is very bad,
For you to get so awful mad ;
You are surely to be pitied,
Because you can't sncceed in town or city.
St. John, pray do keep cool,
Act the "saint" and not the fool ;
Remember yon are a new beginner,
And can't expect to compete with Singer.

Squealing.
Pull a pig's ear or step on a rat's tail,
and as a rule he will squeal. So it is with
those who, through mercenary motives, try
to injure their competitors, by fraudulent
misrepresentations. They, like the long
eared animal of the fabled, think that noise
is argument, but like the fable animal are
doomed to disappointment. Remember we
have first-class machines, and cordially in
vite all persons desiring to buy a reliable
sewing machine to
Come and examine what is what,
Your minds of doubt relieving;
This is the only certain way,
For seeing is believing.
First-class supplies for all machines. All
machines repaired and work warranted.
S. A. Wrioht, 230 Ohio street.
Glass Houses.
Keep cool. Don't get excited, and always
remember that those who live in glass
houses should never throw stones or insinu
ations at their neighbors. Also, remem
the rule for that is tit for tat. Let dogs
delight to bark and bite, for 'tis their na
ture to do so, but sewing machine men
should never let their angry passions rise
to tear each others' eyes. The old reliable
sewing machine, the Singer.w still ahead of
all competitors, although it has no new
clap-trap arrangements to decoy persons to
buy something which is of no particular
value to the operator. Don't be bum-
bugged, but buy something that has beea
tried and not found wanting, which you
will if you purchase a SiBger sewing ma
chine at 113 East Main street.
Sewing machine supplies of all kinds for
sale, and repairs done at short notice.

A Vindication.
There are persons engaged in the sewing
machine business, traveling through the
country and canvassing the city, who fell
and by false representations try to make
people believe I am not located ia Sedalia;
and say that if they buy sewing machines
of Wright, they will not have aay oae to
look after the interests of their machines ;
and they, or some of them say that the St.
John Sewing Machines are not made of
good material, and will Hot wear well.
Any person or per urns asserting or tryiBg to
make people believe such statements, are
liars aBd frauds.
Ever willing aad pleased to serve my
