Every department of the housckeeirf-r's slip, plies are at the lowest ebb, and we advi- a!! who contemplate housekeeping, or must icpU iii-h, to do so within the next month. Alter tint timi importations arrive, the old and new are nunghsl, and vagarieaarenotao easily found. Among important novelties we find black breton uswdas trimming. The black has not o far been imported here, but the white has become so popular, we may be sure the Mack will come to ut with spring openings, and take the place oi the ao-Iong-used French lace. Pluah w a favorite trimming for jounir Indies costume this winter. It is u.-ed as a vest, collar, reran, pockets, and edges the outer saome, -aicea a plaatron of it down the centre of tho back. Stul color isafavorite ahsde. If tho c ontinue i ot seal-colored cloth, it is so much the richer. In that case, the bonnet should be of seal-skin. Two-thirds of the costumes Slti winter are made for vests, and the vest is replaced for different occasions trom black whet to white silk. Ladies who have a lat.- for, and arc skilled at, emuroidery, do these vests in colors, in silk or chenille embroidery. A black el vet vest can be worn with almost any color cotuine, and on almost any occasion. Black satin under-skirts arejtl.-t now the rage. ; They are cut bias, wadded and quilted, and trimmed on the liottom with a flounce of satin, embroidered in eolored silks. The skirt is put upon deep yoke, that there may be no tullnes hi the nips, inojotewramiucimii. Thefancy.for trimming evcrj thins with j:ibot The yoke laces in the back eems upon the increase.

Lace is much used in this way upon the fronts of cos mines, or one side may have a jabot of rib boa and lace, and the other be trimmed with panels oi the same, with loops ofnbloii. The latest novelty in hair is the revival of the double chatelaine. The braids are, however, disposed, that they form a con met at the same time. All efforts to leave the forehead high and tare have proven, fruitless. Ladies with high fore headsrling to the invisible coquet, or short Josephine curls, while those with low foreheads wear the waves upon velvet. The French twits so convenient and eily arranged, is taioosl by fashionable entirely. Curls are worn for full dress, and by young ladiiss. upon the promenade. Abroad, this season, ball dresses are worn short the same as tireetcostiimes. An attempt, to introduce them here has been noticeable of late but it is only now and then a hntie woman appears. It is said that walking through dances is to be abolished, and the regular minuet step adopted. In that case, ladies will he glad or the -hol t, cant skirt worn by their grandmothers. Spun-silk hose is the popular foot-gear for ladies who can afford them. They are warm, and fit tbe foot and ankle beautifully. The Pekin silk, tliat is now the rage, is of moire and satin stripes, satin and futile, or vel vet and moire- velvet and gros grain, or gros miK.rhma trirw- All of it is in tmes. hence its name.

The .ribbon ends are painted iu dainty de sigas, and often with the word "souvenir' in cluded. Others are formed ol finely-quilled breton lace, wit ribbon in dainty colors em broidered with gold thred. Little dots wear colored flannel skirts, rose or pale-blue, embroidered with whifc silk, and edged with a quilling of torchon lace, a second flannel under, and the merino vest and drawers, with the eaemjlette dress and warm outer wraps. These are sufficiently warm for any weather that tiny folks should be allowed out in. Hlacuc. Man Shot From the Moberly Monitor. Nancy Collins, a colored lanndrcat, has a house on Sturgeon street. We give her statement of a difficulty that occurred at her house last night. Nancy says that she keeps a laundry on Sturgeon street ; that Saving a Urge ironing on hand, and being desirous of going to Renick to a party, she sat uji later than usual to finish her work and get ready for the down train. Not Issvins: finished her work, however, she re tired to bed between 12 and 1 o'clock and abandoned the idea of attending the party. Betweea 1 and 2 o'clock, a party of men liame to her door and demanded admit tance, which mam ref"". nd ,heJ were warned to leave. The tuea persrsk-.i and threatened to break tbe door open. Nancy reached for a single barreled pistol, a Der ringer, -which she keeps snder her pillow, and held it in readiness for instant use. The men began to" press against the door, which was securely fastened, and Nancy f red jsC as the door lew open. The men " then rsshed in and demanded her pistol, which she refused to give op. The men threatened but Nancy was obstinate. At last her sua, John Collins, who was sleep ing in an adjoining room, came in and told her to give tbe pistol to him, which she did. John loaded the pistol and firedf again, and at length the men went out. She does sot know that anybody was hurt, bat thinks that if any man was shot it must have been by her son. She is. under arrest .and is being examined before Recorder Wsylsad.

OUT JAIL. Imperative Demand for its Becon traotkm. Report of Dr. Jones, Physician. Attending The condition of oar jail is m bmI de plorable one, and the County Court should take immediate steps to improve it. One year's incarceration in it fas enough to break down the strongest constitution, while it is almost certain death to man of weak physieque. The fault is not with the Sherifl'.for he ;s careiul and atlenliv e to his prisoners, treating them with all the con sideration coii-irtt-m with safety; bat it lien in the construction of this abominable rat trap, that is neither safe nor healthy. The IIazoo lM'es the following sugges tions from Dr. Jones will receive the favor able consideration of the County Court, for the iieople of Petlis would cheerfully bear the expense necessary .rather than to rest under the opprobrium of being enemies to common ntintaiiiiv in perpeiuaiiog uw voung Black Hole of Calcutta. The following is Dr. Jones' report : To the Honorable Vuunty Court of Petti County, GKvri-EMEX It willjirobably be ad mis- sable for me, as attending physician to the County Jail, to call your atttention to its condition. Several weeks ago I went through it with the Grand Jury and pointed out to them the deficiencies, and I under derstand that they have made a report set ting forth the fact that certain improve ments are absolutely necessary. In the firt place the room containing tbe cells is too small there being barely room to walk 11 ween the cells and the walls on either side. The roof of the cell leaks. The Hoor is laid with brick it is washed, as it must be, several times a week, and the brick are damp all the time, and water soaking thr-nigh, instead of running off. Tiie number of cells is insufficient. There are only six cells each, one barely enough to accommodate two men, and yet there arc frequently twenty persona con fined there, and I know that at one time there were over thirty. The cells are set down in the floor. The seweiage is bad in that, and there are no traps to prevent the return of noxious gares into the room. There are no bedsteads, and the conse quence is, the mattresses are laid on the iron floor of the cells, and besides the dirt law! iron rust rendering the mattresses filthy . . . - - j . - ,i in the extreme, and it is Very detrimental to ,e health ot the prisoner 1 would recommend that the roof be remedied at once, and that an extension of the building by forty feet West, and at least ten feet wider than the room now used, and that six cells more be put in it. I suggest this because it is impracticable to put the new cells on top of the others as was originally intended. 1 also suggest that the cells now in use be raised at least six inches, (prefer ten) and that the floor of the old and new rooms he laid with stone instead of brick that it be so laid that when it is washed the wa ter will run ofl ; that permanent iron bed steads be placed in each cell. And that at least four iron bedsteads (permanent) be placed in the hall for the use of sick persons, and tlic'tthe walls of the rooms be white washed twice yearly. The Court can easily see the necessity of these changes, when so many prisoners (men ami women, white and black) are herded together in filth, there is a great deaf of disease, and some of it of the most loath some kind. While the average prisoner does not de serve much consideration, yet humanity demands that while in durance they should have chan, wholesome quarters. Respectfully, Jacob B. Jones. Married. At the residence of, and by Rev. Porter, in Pettis connty, on Sunday, Feb. 2d, 1879, Mr. Allen H. Conner, of the Sedalia police force, to Miss .Nellie Gurney, of St. Louis. The Bazoo wishes friend Conner and his fair bride all the happiness imaginable, and may the bright star that he has taken to his bosom shed its clear lustre through long years of mutual joy and prosperity. A Just Verdict. By a special dispatch in another column it will be seen that John I. West has been convicted of murder in the first degree, West has had a fair trial and able counsel a just judge and a conscientious jary. The latter have rendered their verdict, as in duty bound, from the evidence brought be fore them, every point of which points its blnrslv iisnd at the prisoner's suilt. Tbe jury have nobly discharged their trust, ana they deserve the thanas oi every law-aom- ing man for their firmness snd fairness. A Sensation in Clinton.

A PIOUS DftUBX Ham Who XiUr Iato tbwJtpirit of Thing. Shakspesre tells us of spirits black, spirits gray, and spirits of varieas colors, bat he fails to mention the modem improved Jer sey lightning, that rings tbe bell every shot at 160 yards. Last night a mas who works oa the coat traction train filled up, like Eser flows, rapidly, and to his intense satis faction found hisoMll rip-staving drsak in a very short time. While in this glorious state of exitsawe the idea occurred to him hat it was Sunday night, and that in his exhilaration he had totally forgotten bis religious duties. This struck a tender spot, and be instantly resolved to amend bis re missness. Full of sage conclusions and pioas con templations he wiggled off in bis bunt for a church. Fate and a muddy sidewalk brought him to one which be entered. Tbe fumes of whisky had stretched bis brain as tight as a dram-head, and tied the ends in a bow-knot at tbe butt ot each ear. He did not approve ol tbe way the services were conducted, and a rumpus ensued, dar ing which he was hustled cot of tbe sacred edifice, and left to find his way. to heaven hell or tbe calaboose, as be might elect. This is a free country. He came to the conclusion, however, that as the Presbyterians were so straight-laced, and taking into into consideration the fact that he was very thirsty, that tbe Baptists might be more congenial to bis tastes, albeit water was rather thin. Time was pecioua earthly things nighty uncertain. If Gabriel should take into his bead to toot at tliat particular time, his goose was cooked sure. For the Good Book says the drunkard shall not enter the king dom of heaven, and he knew it. In fact he could hardly walk as it was, and he would as soon thought ot climbing a greased pole as attempting ts climb Jacob's ladder. Good luck and careful navigation brought him into -the Baptist port. His natural abhorrence, however, for water in any shape manifested itself, and another row ensued. Ho disturbed the congregation by "violent and tumultuous conduct" and interrupted tbe services. Finally a six foot soldier of the Lord, took that blasphmer by the ear and led him down to tbe city jail, where Father Kelley and Revs. Smith and Went- zelraan and Deacons Goasage and Conner immediately received tbe straggler from tbe fold. When he awoke to consciousness, this morning, and peeped oat of the bars, he be gan to sniff for sulphur, bat when Graham came in to give the fire a poke, be fell back with a groan tboroagly satisfied that Bob Ingersoll lies, and that Satan was there "forninst'1 him. He was taken up stairs for morning ser vice, and listened to a beautiful discourse from Rev. Conrath, who took for his text : "And they cast oat devils." At the conclusion of the services, Dennis Sullivan placed $5 in the contribution box. tt HEXT A Barber Gata a Close Share. We have heard of the Irishman who got a "love of God shave," and have seeu bar bers shave each other, bat James Glenn, wh6 keeps a batber shop on Second street, got shaved entirely too close about noon to day. It appears that W. H. Brown, who has been working with bim, took umbrage at something that Glenn said this morning, and being under the inluence of liquor, he became violent and demonstrative. Glenn states that about noon Brown came in and attacked bim with a razor, cutting him slightly in the neck, ear and fare. Glenn threw hit assailant down and with assistance got the weapon out of Brown's hand. In doing this tbe latter was cut on the knuckles and in the palm of the hand, but not dangerously. Brown was arrested and locked up in the city jail, where a Bazoo reporter visited bim. He exprased his regret at the occur rence, and said Glenn and him had always been friends. The affair all grew out of that fruitful source of trouble whiskey. It is not likely that Glenn will prosecute him. A Sweeping; Reduction.

Bv Mr. Lockhart: In relation to the first'day of the week. This makes it an. lawful to play croquet or marbles on Sun day. This terrible and demoralising vice mast be stopped. The whole Christian world should rise up, take of its hat, fall on its marrow boaas, and pray for Bro. Lockhart. Yes, ah. Last summer, how many timet, ah, have we passed by in the streets in deep meditation, ah, and happening to look over into some green, grassy yard, ah, seen young ladies and young men, ah, a-beatiag the devil around the stump with long-handled mallets, ah! OO-O-O-H! gentle reader, it made our heart bleed to see them poor sinners losing so much timet And those young ladies, ah. They never thought of their poor souls, though they showed their striped instep clear up to their knees, ah ! O-O O H ! 'what a wicked sight, ah, the croquet, not the knee. We thank thee, Bro. Lockhart for thine holy bill, aad when it comes up, hope it will receive such n decided vote in the negative as to learn you to mind your own business. Then as to marbles. Tbe wickedness compressed into this device of Belial is absolutely horrifying. We have seen a little dirty faced boy, who knew no more about catechism than a hog, just sit outside ot Sunday school aad lay for the good little boys. Then he would show tbem a nice place inside a lamber yard, and before sundown that little dirty faced boy bad every pious marble and agate in the crowd, and would begin oa their jack knives. The great crime of playing marbles on Sunday threatens to revolutionise society and undermine the moral strength of tbe nation. From a fair contest they will begin to cheat, and the excited yells of "vent ever!" "vent dubbs!" "knaekfe down !" etc., has often made our blood run cold as we thought of ,what a bloody trage dy might occur in case the demands were not complied with. Another thing we have observed about marbles a rolling stone gathers no mom. As probably Mr. Lockhart'a back is cov ered with it, he had an eye to this fact in prohibiting marbles. We don't know what kind of a game of poker Bre. Lockhart plays, but presume it is a square one. We see nothing in his bill against poker on Sunday, and hence con clude that soul-elevating amusement is all correct. There are some other crimes to which we wish to call Bro. Lockhart's attention, such as eating three meals a day on Sunday, drinking beer, eating ice cream, kissing wives and sweethearts, courting, reading tbe Sunday Mobmxg Bazoo. We beg that Bro. Lockhart will amead his bill, and make 11 tbe above named crimes punishable with death. He can then return to Grundy county with the most perfect assurance that here after he will be allowed to remain there. Married.

Jaokaosi Coamty Girl Coamsaita Bloody Murder. How Mattie Colli Brother-im-Law at Killed Her Yesterday the Bazoo published a special dispatch from Independence aboat a beaa tifal yoang girl shooting her brother-ia-law. The following are tbe fall partkalars from the Kansas City Journal: Sunday morning aboat 11 o'clock Miss Mattie Collins, a handsome yoang lady aboat twenty years of sge, living with her widowed mother, Mrs. Martha Collins, near Buckner, in this county, deliberately shot and killed her brother-in-law. Jonathan Dark, aader circumstances that make tbe killing a sensation almost, if not quite, without a parallel in the West. Mrs. Col lias, mother of the girl who wrought this fearful work, lives oa a fans about three miles south of Buckner, a village of three or four hundred inhabitants on tbe Narrow Guage road, a few miles east of Indenea deace, and her son-in-law, Joaathsa Dark, lived ia her family, with his wife, aitter of the murderess. A young man named Bast was very devoted in his attentions to Mws Mattie Collins, and he prosecuted his court ship notwithstanding tbe pronounced op position of the mother and family of Miss Collins, who disliked bin for some reason and determined that his attentions should cease. Saturday night be went to the resi dence of Mrs. Collins to visit Miss Mattie Collins, aad was met at the gate by Jona than Dark, the brother-in-law above men tioned, who informed Bast that his visits to the young lady must cease; and that be would not be allowed to enter the boase. BASr WENT AWAY after hearing this, without attempting to resist, bat the girl, whose heart be bad evidently won, and who. he expected to see that night, did not so quietly accept tbe situation It meant the cracinxioa ot ner love, and being highly spirited and re sentful, the tigress in her nature was aroused, sad her resentment worked itself into a fury that culmiaated in murder. When Dark returned to the house after compelling the departure of Bast, Miss Collins began to upbraid him and her mother for what she considered a cruel and arbitrary piece of despotism. The greater part of Saturday night tbe unhappy girl. foiled in her love, contused her bitter re proaches against her brother in-law, and her passion, so far from exhausting itself. grew fiercer. Sunday morning she renewed her stormy maledictions against Drk, all effort to appease her being ansaccemtul. In her insane fury she smashed some of the windows of the house, made efforts to get at Jonathsn Dark with sn sx and at tempted to bora the dwelling. Her family were thoroughly alarmed at her unnatutal aad dangerous state of mind, so much so that Mrs. Collins sent for Mr. J. M. Adams, the deputy constable, of this city, who was in that neighborhood st Ihe time. Daring the forenoon the frantic girl left the room and was absent several boars, aad when she returned it WA WITH A PISTOL, which she evidently intended to use. Her possession of this pistol, coupled with her previous condact, was what indexed Mrs. Collins to send for Mr. Adam. Mr. Adams went to the house, aad, after remaining there a while, started away, thinking that no serious dsnger was to be apprehended be had goaa but a short distance wnea ne heard a pistol shot, and harrying back found poor Wars: lying on tne aoor, snot . a SB a through tbe body, with the blood gashing . .......... be was shot, while the girl wno ana auiea him rushed out ol the house scresmiag with demoniac joy : "I have killed bim ! tbsnk God, I have killed him r bee had walked in the house just siier jir.

Vdlf Horn in Nevada City A Baxoo reporter learned, this moraiag, tbe meager partkalars af an affair that is creating considerable excitmeat ia the gucd towa of Nevada City, the eoanty seat of Vernon coaaty. It appears that a Constable, named Quick, who resides fa a township about twelve miles from tbe cosnty seat, came into Ne vada to have n good time. About dask he met with a highly respect able yoang lady ea her wsy home- He either mistook her for somebody else, or llowed whiskey aad his evil passions to gel the upper hold of bim. He followed the young lady, notwithstanding sll her ef forts to get rid of him, and made indecent proposals to her, at the ssme time accom paaviug tnem with tbe tender of a ten dollar bill. Thoroughly aroased to her danger, the yosag lady Bed aingniea tnroagn we streets screaming for help, and at last took refuge in an open house. Her fiendish pur suer was close upon her heels and entered, also, the building, where a fierce struggle took place. A aumber attracted by the young girl's crfert proceeded to the spot, and arrested Quick. He was unceremoniously hustled off to jail, where he now is awaiting an examination. The above facta are all that could be gathered by the reporter from his inform ant, who ia a reliable man. THE VERDICT.

Tbe Attaway-Able matter occupied con siderable time this saorning ia the general raa of eoavenation. The oSce of tbe Coal Oil Inspector, on Chestnut street, was a point objective for seme of the reporters aad they found neither Mr. Attawsy, who had gene to Jefersoa City, nor Mr. Able, who had gone oat on other business. Part of the o See which is located on Chestnut street, ander tbe Polytechnic Institute is occupied by Mr. HsrringtoB, in whose employ is a very intelligent lad named Had ley. This boy made a statement to a Star re porter that Mr. Able had givea him a book to keep on Monday morning which was inscribed u tYalter Pierce Oil Co.," snd told him to keep it for bim until evening. What ever tbe book might have been or what bearing it had oa the case, be could not say, bat he probably made a mistake in the name which might have beta "Waters A Pierce Oil Company," whose eatablishmeat is located at the corner of Third street and Washington avenue. Yoang Hadleysays thsttbst evening be had returned the book to Able aad bsd taken a note to J. J.
