You had a specimen of their work at Washington Hall on theSatutdayi previous to the Sedalia Convention. The roughs, biiinin rs, ballot-stufTers, and dead heats of our city saw their opportunity to reap a rich harvest and become the allied force of thosti who heretofore sold us out. Tbev took advantage of the nromiscuou call made by our goo l friend Britton A. Hill, by his authority from Toledo. They caught a few unthinking workiugmen ami formed themselves into a delegation, sup-po-ed to be from the workiugmen of St. Louis and when they arrived at Sedalia iu cieased their tttitubers to a formidable strength. They then held their secret cau cus ami fixed their plans to capture honest Greenback men from other parts of the state. T do this dirty work they had to go in under the call of Mr. John M. Lon don a gentleman who foresaw the trouble I hat Mr. Hill's liberal call was Mire to make). but who had 110 legitimate right to make his call. The delegation from St. Louis refused to attend this convention, as the disturbers of our eace at Washington Hall had warned theai that if they went to Sedalia they were ready to fight them j there again.

There were no family difficul ties; he owed no man a cent ; was liked by all. and why he should hare done this is a mystery. Mrs. H. said that he must have been momentarilv delirious.

And a Thiag of Beauty is a Public Park. . i. xy . ... . i tear ao, - tnhlislmient of a citv nark, ami nn then - at different times the prm has labored for the same important object. At last indi viduals have taken the matter in band, aud yesterday a petition wo circulation to If picseiited to the Council praying that tl.e the Normal school lot 011 Broadway be re I aside lor a public park. About three years ago Mr. J. R. Barrett j inaile a very 1 literal proposition to donate to the city several acres on the high praiiie southwest of town under certain conditions, which involved but little ex peiise, while they would insure a beautiful place of rec reation to our people. This proposition, or rather gift, was not accepted, and it is now, iierhaps, too late for any benefit to lie de rived from it. The city is fast filling up, and now or never is the time to secure this indispensable adjunct to future health ami happiness. When Sedalia shall be hemmed in, and the pure air shut out, by high walls of biick and morlr, it will be too late to tind thai breathing sjK)t aud place of beauty that a properly kept park affords. All that is necessary to secure an inesti mable blessing to ourselves and posterity, is for man now to provide a few acres, plant a few trees and shrulw, and d vote a little lime to their cultivation ; God will do the rest, mid clothe il with beauty and fresh iicss that will increase as the citv gn.w.-. in numbers and prtnirity. In a sanitary oiiit of view, alone, a pub lic park is an aWolute and imiisn.nsab!e necessity to the general health of any city of ten thousand inhabitants. St. Louis has eight pat ks, aggregating Mime 'housauds of acres, in different parts of the city, uimii which she exjends something like two mil lions of dollars annually. Aud. the mor tality statistics show that St. Iouis is the healthiest city in the United States, if not in the world.

The mechanic and laborer, too, with lus family could then find an enjoynient,which,like God's lounties were intended for all, and a well-kept public park has a moral effect Ihat has been ap preciated m all communities where large ! ! numbers of people are compelled to reside. ; Nothing adds more to the attractions of a ' city than a well-kept park, and it leaves a pleasing impression in the mind of the strancer. be he prince nr peasant, that adds 1 ! to the name of the city abroad. If Sedalia is to ever to have a park, now ! is the time to procure it, when it can be done witli little expense.

The State and counties, under the back tax act, are not subject to these costs. I am satisfied the law wiil be the means of clean ing up the bacic taxes, and that large amount will be collected during this year, in addition to the foregoing. The law will greatly tend to reduce the delinquent lists in the future, as few persons will care to subject theraelves to suits and costs. Un der the old law many contrived to get their lands returned on the delinquent lists, be cause they then regarded themselves safe, for the reason that but few lands were sold at tax sale, and tax deeds did not stick." She laid her lily white band on a bunch of round, honest-faced onions, and said, "how much?' Taking his pipe out of his mouth, Peter Connors replies, five cents.

McCann, a highly respected farmer residing on the South Moreau, about two miles this side of Pratt's Mills, was fatally gored by a steer last Sat urday morning about 7 o'clock. The brute, an ill-natured stag, had entered her door yard, and she was in the act of driving him out, when he became infuriated and turned upon her with his horns. Her bowels were torn open and she was otherwise injured. She survived her injur ies about four hours, when she expired in great agony Dr. Martin, the nearest physician, was summoned. He sewed up the terrible wound in her bowels, but could administer no relief from impending death. Neighbors arrived ia the city about mid night, Saturday eight, after a coSn, and bringing the sad uUUigeace, .Sate Journal. A DIAMOND RtiTG. Its Strange Disappearance and Re covery.

Carefully cleaning it from the dough, she saw it was a veritable diamond, and a val uable one at that. Proceedir.gfurther witfi her investigations, she discovered an inscrip tion engraved upon the inside of the ring, together with a date and the initials, "M. S." Reing cognizant of Mrs. Montgomery's loss, and knowing how highly she prized the jewel, Mrs. Houston resolved at once to go to her friend and apprise her of her good fortune. It being Sunday morning and about the time of the closing of services, Mrs. H knew that she would meet Mrs. Montgom- cry at the church or coming from it. On her way Mrs. Houston met Mrs. Montgom ery returning from church, and without in forming the latter of her discovery, Mrs. Houston raised the hand upon which she wore it to her face. In an instant Mrs. Montgomery recognized her lost treasure and joyfully exclaimed, "Where did you n.it i.iv Tint. , i" The discovery of it was explained, and together the ladies proceeded to Mrs. Jack sou's to find the girl. When the lattter knowing no one with those initials, he said nothing, but charged one dollar for repair ing it. The girl said it was too much and departed with the ring.

No doubt the ladies of Sedalia would like to know something about this woman of whom the whole country is now talkiBg of. The following Washington telegram thus describes her: She is a well-looking woman, about 35 years of age, of good figure, but aa ordi nary face. Her hands are beautiful, and she played them to their beat advantage, toying with a fan and gesturing in a Frenchy way. She is exceedialy Frencby in all her manners, and has the Parisian shrug to perfection. No one of the many spectators present enjoyed the exhibition more than she, and she lost no opportunity to show her wit or cross words with one of the committee. She evidently loves noto riety, and wants to be the heroine of the in vestigation. At times she waa quite dra matic, and her French accent made it more forcible. During the examination she sat lazily in her chair, and when a question was asked she looked steadily in the eyes of her questioner, and kept them there until her answer was delivered. Thea she would glance around the room to see the effect of her words. Not oace waa she thrown off her guard, except when Butler produced her letter to Kellogg, which she said was a breach of confidence, and she in sisted that Butler should not read it. She contradicted herself frequently ,aad it waa curious to see how deftly she woaki crawl out of a corner. Her ability to ivade a question was remarkable, and she is the most tricky witness General Butler haa come across for manv a dav. She waa im pertinent, but the readers of her testimony will notice that she always expressed her self in refined language. She shows evi dences of culture but is evidently a woman of queer tastes. Louisiana people say her character is good, but that she baa a pen chant for politics, which has made her name quite notorious in that State. They say she has been the most potent influence since the war in the East Feliciana parish, and is the best campaign manager in the parish. The winters she generally spends is New Orleans, where her husband haa been em ployed in the custom house, and is said to have been a constant habitue of the State house. She has been interested in Iegials tien at times, but was not known to be a lobbyist. Her husband is the cipher of the familv. Tip COUIf TkBFSITBBa. A Nest or Them Discovered Short Creek. at Fort Scott Monitor. United States Marshal Robert McCurley is doing effective work at Short Creek ia gobbling up the counterfeiter who have been making spurious coin for some time The following concerning the gang ia taken from the Joplin Sevs. It seems that there were more men en gaged in the manufacture of spurious coin at Short Creek than waa at first supposed, though they are all liable to suffer for their crimes. Last Saturday United States Marshal Robert Curley succeeded ia arrest ing six more makiag nine ia all. Those arrested Saturday are Frank Shnbert, his father H. S. Suubert, James Johnson, John R. Craig, Alonzo Hawley and John Gibson. The charge against most of these ia passing counterfeit money and against the two Shu berts and James Johnson there is also a charge of selling leal tobacco. They will all have a hearing to-morrow before United State Commissioner Deanisoa at Baxter Springs, and it is expected that the testi mony will lead to other arrests. It ia the opinion of the omcera that the ring leaden in the manufacture of this money have not as yet been caught and that they are men of more shrewdness than any that have beea arrested. Those arrested so far an mostly new characters whose business it aeesaa was "shoving the fueer." They have had a splendid opportunity to circulate a good deal of money for the rea son that mining companies at Short Creek have been using a good deal of silver com in buying lead and the circulating median in that vicinity waa silver altogether. Peo ple knew this and a maa waea paid in new silver coin paid bat little attention to its genuineness. The spurious coin made by these parties, whea new had a good appear ance and required close attention to show its defectiveness. This waa the case espec ially with the Mexicaa dollars which are more easily counterfeited than the United States coin for the reason that the faith is not so aeat. - Xcononay in Washing. A new system of washing has lately 1 introduced in some French towns which is worthy of special attention. Its economy is so great as to greatly reduce the cost. This is the process : One kib (two pounds) of soap is reduced with a little water to a sort of pap, which, having beea slightly warmed, is cooled in forty-five liters (tea gallons) of water, to which is added one spoonful of turpentine oil and two spoonfuls of ammonia : then the mixture is agitated. The water is kept at a temssratare which may be borne by the hand. Ia this solu tion the white clothes are put, sad left there for two hours before washing them with soap, taking cars ia the meantime to cover the tab. The solution may be warmed again sad used once more, but it will be necessary to add half a teaspooaful of turpentine and another spoenful of ammonia. Once washed with soap, the clothes are pat ia warm water, and the blue is applied. This pro cess, it is obvious, spares mack time, mack labor and fuel, while it gives to the clothes whiteness mach superior to that obtained by any other method, sad the destractive ese of the wash-board or of pounding is not necessary to clean the clothes from the im purities which they contain.
