A great many confederate veterans from central Missouri will attend the re union at Dallas, Texas, August 10th. 'Tis not the correct thing to say "stranger than fiction" now.

C. Thompson, cashier of the first national bank, was appointed by Judge Lacy, administrator of the estate of the late Mrs. Talbott. Miss A. Petty, a most charming young lady of Kockville, subscribed for the daily Bazoo yesterday while visiting relatives in Appleton City. Thanks, Miss Petty. The photographer at McAllister Springs says the man. who tore off half of his muslin sign would do well to come back and pa' damages or he wilPgive him away. Mr. James Story has let the contract for building his three story business house, opposite the court house square, to J. M. Quinn, the contractor. It is to cost 11,000. A green parrot coming north on the K. & T. last night, exhibited the same sleepy disposition of its fellow travelers, by nodding and starting up, often bump ing its head. All railroad men that are lovers of base ball are requested 'to -meet at the city council rooms on Friday evening next at 8 o'clock, for the purpose of organizing a K. JL B. B. C. Charles Roll, salesman at Mever& Co"s. lumber yard, this morning loaded thirtecu wagons with lumber for Benton county, and it was not much of a day for loading either. Chas.

Our German contemporary, the Journalappears this week in a bran new' dress. It presents a neat appearance, and ;peaks volume for the enterprise and energy of its proprietors. There was a young lady of Beaman, "Whose name was little Miss Hemans, Her hair it is red, And she says she will wed Xobody but a bold seaman. Jim Merrifield, alias Tornado Jim, spent Sunday at McAllister springs, rusti cating. He came in on his run next day looking as brown and hearty as though he had liecn a month at the seaside. The inmates of a tenement house in the southern part of town gave a first-class entertainment to a large audience com posed of the residents of that neighborhood. The cause of it all was a bucket of slop. The coroner's jury finds the H. & St. Joseph road responsible for the killing of Yancey and Connors, -at Hannibal the other day.- Employes of the company did not display due caution. -1 The macadam on Lamine street from Third tojFifth has been received by the street and alley committee and the city en gineer, and the special ?tax bills for the payment of the same have been filled out by the recorder. Laura Boon, a dusky- damsel, was the only unfortunate before hizzoner this morning. She was run in late' last night lay Officer Holliday for keeping late hours. She was fined $5 and sent below for want of that amount of filthy lucre. The Suxday Morkikg t Bazoo comes to us enlarged to eigh pages and in a brand new suit of clothes. The new type sets it off splendidly. Iwjivfull of good, spicy reading matter, too. Long may J. "West wave. Jeffersou City-Tribune. A man without a nose Must have a heap of woes, And we wonder how he ever pays his rent. For tho' he wears good clothe, Tisa fact, as each one knowsjj Jie never," during life, can have a scent Guiteau's pistol was a "British Bull dog." How, shameful it is that a deadly weapon should be named after an amaia so gentle; so sagacious, so harmonious as the taurine-canihe friend of the English people. At no time since Warrensbnrg has been built has there been so great a ue niand for carpenters as now. Every builder has his hands full and more too. and there is great difficulty in getting me chanics enough to do the work. Standard Same here. Kentuckv is the first state in the Union to return thank's for 'the recovery the president. The government of that state has appointed the 14th inst. as a d of general thanksgiving. When shall we hear from Gov. Crittenden? Wonder if a bald-headed man keeps cooler than any one else this hot weather? If we thought so. we'd go and wc had almost said get married, and soliecome bald at once, but sober second thought speaks out in warning tones against any such literal demonstration of "jumping out of the frying pan into the fire." A Bazoo rejwrter was informed by a citizen of Dallas county, Texas, that the ground in that county, in many places, had cracked 'from eight to ten inches wide, run ning in a zig-zag manner, with apparently no bottom, and much poultry and small stock has been lost by falling in,thatcoul( not be got out. Mr. H. P. Grey, adjuster for the New York Underweiters insurance company yesterday adjusted the loss of Mr. S. X. Lewis, incurred by the fire last Saturday morning. Mr. Lewis is loud in his praise of the manner in which Mr. Grey and Mr. Chas. Bullen, the company's agent in this city, did their work. H. S. Witherspoon,circuit clerk of Johnson county, in attempting to alight from the east bound Pacific passenger last night, at Warrensburg, was thrown violent ly to the ground. He was knocked seiiM.- lessf and for a time it was thought he would not recover, but after something less than a barrel of water had been poured on him, he recovered. Superintendent Pearson, of the K. & T. division Df the Pacific, has had another division added to his supervision. Here after the part of the road heretofore under the control of Superintendent Sheafe be tween Parsons and Muskogee, is now un der the superintension of Mr. Pearson- making in all o miles of track which Mr. P has to look after and superintend. The ex-confederate soldiers of Mis souri now living in Texas, are going to have a re-union in Dallas on the 10th and 11th of August, the twentieth anniversary of the battle of Oak Hills. , Ex-confederates of Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas who participated in what the circular calls that "sanguinary struggle," are invited to be present and participate in the re union. The porters and brakemen on Jack Patterson's train are, in high favbr with (he public. Their courtesy in waiting upon the old people on their train, civilly an ewering their questions, dusting their clothes, and in many other ways showing them little kindnesses. They are rewarded by the general approval of all who witnes it Mr. Patterson himself is a gentleman in the fullest sense of the word. The Pacific railroad company pays its employes all that is due them, and pays promptly. Because one man don't happen to get his pay just -as he deems right, he must go bullying into an officer's office, and if he is summarily ejected, as he should be if he don't behave himself, he is called .upon to shoot his employer s superintendent That man should be pun ished if there is a law on the statute books to do so, and the Bazoo believes that Dean will get just what the law directs in such cases.

Graphic. HIZZONER'S LEVEE Turns out to be a Grand Success This Ifornihff., The reserved seats back of the railing in the recorder's court were all filled this morning. Promptly at 9 o'clock the re corder and his big book waltzed into the room, and in a few seconds the marshal and the s!ate followed suit, while Kelley and the balance of the gang brought up the rear. The first care was that of the city vs. Hon. William Craig. P. D. He pleaded not guilty to disturbing the peace of his landlady, but after the recorder heard the evidence, he informed William that he had not kept strictly the laws of the city, "consequently he would have to fine him S3.00. Paid. John Moss was not there when his name was called, but the. marshal ordered a plea of guilty to a plain, unvarnished drunk, and it so done. Paid. Jack Jones, for keeping late hours under suspicious circumstances, was fined $2.00. Paid. Michael Mason was discharged, as he proved that it was not whisky that made him act so strangely last night. It was a lump of wadding in the upjier story of his cranium. The last, but by no means least, case was that of the city vs. Kobt. Wooldridge, the seventh son of the seventh daughter, who claims to have a heart in one hand and a sugar loaf iu the other. He also claims to sak seven different languages, all ol which he says was bestowed upon him as a gift by the Creator. "Mr. Wooldridge, you are charged in court with maliciously destroying private property. Do you plead guilty or not guilty?" said his honor, on taking up his case. On hearing the above conundrum shot at him, Kobert assumed a perendicular shape, and, with the air of a .French count, responded - "Not guilty, yer honor, sah." He then took his eat. "Are you ready for trial, Mr. Wool dridge?" asked his honor. , "I want to employ a lawyer, as 1 uo not $jeel like looking after my own case." "How long will it take you to get a law- ver?" asked the recorder. Sir Kobert looked around over the room and spying one of Sedalia's most talented legal gentlemen, he called out : "Come over heah, Mr. Lawyer, and help me out of this scrape." The lawyer and his client then ad journed to an-adjoining room to commune with each other as to the best way to pro ceed with the case. In alnrnt three minutes Robert put in an apiearanee and told the recorder, that he would withdraw his plea and enter one of guilty. "I want you to go light, boss," said Rob ert, "as you soaked it to me pretty heavy on the liell ringing question." The marshtU then told how Robert, while locked up, had destroyed all the water pipes in the cell and broke two or three locks on the cell door. The recorder then fined Mr. Wooldridge $10 and court adjourned. TALLY ONRMORE. The Car Accountant's Office, of the Missouri Pacific Removed to Sedalia. The office of car-accountant of the Mis souri Pacific railway company, has been removed to Sedalia, and hereafter, all car reports will ,be made to this .city The ollowing circular explains itself: OKX'L MANAGER'S OFFICE; . St. Louis, July 11, 1881 CIRCULAR. The office of Car Accountant of the Mis souri Pacific Railway Company will be re moved to Sedalia, Mo., Mondav, July 18th. On and after that date all car reorts ami communications for that office will be ad dressed to A. G. Eahtok, Car Accountant, Sedalia,-Mo. A. A. TALMAGE, Gen'l Manager. The Pacific is friendly toward Sedalia, and no lietter evidence of the fact could be given than this movement on their part Sadalia will soon have extensive additions to the machine shops of the company. This move is calculated to be of great benefit to' the Queen City of the Prairies. He had to be Hand-cuffed. Bob Woolridge, the crazy negro, was again chained up this morning. During the night he brokX; the water pipe off that carries water into the cell, flooding his apartment and he ante-room at the station fterhehad broken the pipe off he used it as a hammer and put in his time trying to beat the lock oiof the cell. In thishedid not succeed, but injured the lock so that a gun smith had to be employed to open the cell. le is a terrible foul mouthed nuisance and ought to be shut up in some dungeon until he concludes to behave himself.

NOT HIM. A Darkey Brought to This City Charged With Being the California Rapist. He Proves to the Satisfaction of the Officers That he Had no Connection With the Hor rible Crime. A darkey who gave his name as Ander son Rcll, was turned over to Sheriff John Shaw, of Johnson county, last night, by Conductor Charles Galliger, who mistook him to lie the California rapist. The negro took the train at Kansas City and had a ticket for this place, where he was coming to lead to the hymenial altar one of Sedalia's gushing and blushing dusky damsels. After handcuffing the prisoner Sheriff Shaw brought him to this city and lodged him in jail. He then telegraphed Marshal John Tillery, of California, of his find, and requested that gentleman to come to this city and take a look at the prisoner. Marshal Tillery arrived this moruingand soon after visited the jail for the purpose of identifying the coon. On taking a look at the prisoner the marshal told Mr. Shaw that he had the wrong mau and he was discharged. The prisoner has lecn working at the City hotel at taxingUm for the past three years, and bears a good reputation. He re sembles the fiend wanted, with the excep tion that he is not deaf and weighs about thirty Hiunds less. He was the happiest negro ever in" Seda lia when lilwrated. He will be married this.evening. AL'S OPINION. What the President of the Boot . black'8 Union has to Say. "Shine, sah?" greeted a Kazoo report er as he came out of the Garrison house this morning. Before him stood a dimin utive specimen of humanity, not over three feet in heighth, a miniature speci men of the genus homo. It was Al:, the dwarf, the honorable president of the Bootblacks' Amalgamated Protective Un ion. The news man proceeeed to interrogate him, regardless of his piteous appeal of "shine, sah?" "How's the union?" "De yunion am fustrate, sah." "Did your treasurer give bond ?" "No, sah." "Where is he now ?" "De Lawd knows, sah, I doesn't !" "Has he skipped?" "Deed an' he has. An' he tuk de fun's ob de yunion in his pocket." "How much was it ?" "Lemme see. Dar was five cents from me, an' five cents from Jimmy, and two cents from anoder who didn't hah de change to pay all de dues. 'Bout twelve cents, sah." "Can the union stand it ?" "See hyah; mistah, ef you tinks de Boot blacks' Amalgumated Purtective Yunion can't stan' twelve dents you is off to' tap." "Have all the shiners taken out li censes ?" "De mos' ob 'em has, sah." "What are you going to do with the kids who haven't?" "Fiah dem out." "Out of town?" "Yes s'ah, or make 'cm do sometin, else." "Won't they kick ?1 T' "What if dey does?" HI trash de fust one what savs he doan' like the vunion. We doesn't want no rats, you bet." Al., the dwarf, thinks the union a suc cess. They Shipped Him Away. John Burns is the name of a half-witted lad alnrnt sixteen years of age, who has been making his home in the eastern part of the citv for a couple of weeks past. During the day he put in the most of hit time sawing wood, aud at night he slept in barns empty houses, etc., liecause of his being so filthy no one seemed disposed to give him a bed in their house. This morn ing one of the benevolent citizens of that end of the city bought him a ticket for Tipton, and shipped him in that direction. He claims to hail from Williamsport, Mo. The Ladder Broke: Night before last 'Gene Hartnett, a brakeman on the K. & T., was flagging a train at Hepler, and, as, his train came past, pulling out, he attempted to board it. He seized the ladder on' one of the cars, when it broke, and he fell. As he was fall ing, he tried to catch the hand-rail of the caboose, but missed it, and fell dowiraa embankment. The falling part he did not object to, but the stopping so suddenly was what he didn't like. His right shoul der and side were badly bruised, and lie is forced to lay off for a few days. He is able to sit up to-day and feels quite well considering the shaking up he received, and the absaaot.of politCMss oa the part of Kansas soil in being so hard. POWDER. Boy Sets Fire to a Powder Flask and Gets Badly Burned. At 2:30 this afternoon, as Samuel Manes, the ten-year-old son of Lewis Manes, was playing with a powder horn, he set fire to it in some manner, when it exploded, burn ing his hand and side in a frightful man ner. The report made a noise like the firing of a cannon, which, with the frantic cries of the boy soon attracted a large crowd at the residence, which is on "West Main street. When the Bazoo reporter arrived, a few moments later, the little fellow was in ter rible agony. An examination of his wounds was made, and it was found that his right side was laterally baked, and his hand badlv torn. HE TAPPED THE TILL, And the Police Coming Along He was Laid Away to Cool. Henry Davis is a darkey. He is also one of these "yaller niggahs" who have moredeviltry in their comKsition than the entire white and colored races together. Henry was broke. Whether this is a new exjerienee in his life or is a chronic failing, deonent sayeth not. He had been an employe at Bonner's restaurant and was paid oft last night. This morn ing, when there was no one in the front part of the building, he went in and waived behind the counter. He first went through the til 1 and managed to get all of twenty cents. He thought he wonld enjoy a smoke or two and accordingly helped himself to half-a-dozen choice ci gars. At this stage of the performance Mrs. Bonner, who was in the kitchen, caught a glimpse of him. She came out and the fellow hid under the counter. She remarket, ''That will do," and stepped to the door and called "Police." At thi the the till-tapjier sprang up and darted for the back door. Mrs. Bonners sister, Ma mie, locked the back door and put the key in her pocket. This made him slightly warm and he lightly tossed a heavy glass dish at Miss Mamie's head, but she is a pretty good dodger, and the missille Hew wide of its mark. Then he turned toward the front door, and Mrs. Bonner told him he couldn't get out there. He then became, very much excited in fact "hot," and he seized a convenient wine bottle with the laudable intention of knocking Mrs. B. down. Like her sister, she is an adept in the art of dodging, and again he was frustrated. He ran through Glass' saloon and across the railroad track toward the Catholic church, followed by a man named McGinlcy and Mr. Bonner. By this time officer MeNally came along and seeing that the young man was in a rather heated condition, and fearing he might not keep, lie took him to the re frigerator where he was laid on ice verv carefully It has transpired, however, that the uame he gave the police was an assumed one ami that his name is not Henry Davis but Leni, sometimes known as Ed. Lemis. Davis or Lemis, he will not indulge in the luxury of ice cream for awhile, at least. He wus taken lieforc 'Squire Clark this afternoon tor trial, lie pleaded guilty and was given sixty days and fined thirty dollars and costs. War in the Suburbs. There is a family living in Campbell's addition who, among other things, own an old speckled rooster. This rooster has on several occasions been the cause of a war of words and a law suit or two, be cause of its perambulating disposition. In fact, the rooster does not like to stay at home at all, and most any time in the day can be found in the truck patch of its own er's neighbors, who, on divers occasions told the proprietor of the chicken that if he did not keep it penned up, he would find it taking a good long snooze some fine day. Yesterday the owner of the bird happened to be absent from home, and while away, the rooster invaded the gar den of one of the neighbors. While there, it run against a knife-blade in the hand of the owner of the garden, after which it laid down for the oft-promised "long snooze," in its master's yard. When the owner came home ami found his rooster snoozing, and its head nearly severed from its bodv, he became exceedingly wrothy. He tackled one of his neighbors, whom he suspected of holding the knife-blade in such a manner as to let the rooster run up against it, but the neighbor denied be ing guilty of such a charge. A few blows followed,' and one of the participants got his off-optic ieper closed ; but the end is not vet. m SHILOH'S CATARRH REMEDY, marvelous cure for Catarrh, Diphtheria, Canker mouth and Head Ache.
