HCWentSecoHd St., Justice to Bill Jones. Bill Jones, the blacksmith, who was ar rested on Friday on a charge of embezzle ment preferred by one Falkner, a black smith at Herndon, Saline county, was re leased yesterday for want of prosecution and because there was no case against him over which the authorities of this county have jurisdiction. It appears, from Falkner's story, that Jones went to Herndon to engage in work ing at his trade with Falkner, who had advertised in a Sedalia paper for a black smith. The two went into partnership in the business, and the agreement was that each was to have half of the earnings Jones took in for work $6.50, of which, of course, $3.25 was due Falkner as his half. In addition to this amount, which Jones still held, Falkner lent him $8.50 with which to move his family to Herndon. He likewise let his partner have $2.25 with which to buy a pair of pants. All this amounted to $17.25, which, allowing Jones his $3.25, dne as half of the proceeds of the business, left him $14 in debt to Falkner. For this Falkner had him arrested on a charge of embezzlement. " Jones savs, on the other hand, that the receipts of the partnership business amounted to $40, of which $20 was due him. He never got but six dollars of this money and claims that Falkner yet owes him $14. Which side of the story is true thpxp is nf rmir;p Tin mpnne nf L-nnu-intr but it is very plain that it was unjust to keep Jones lying in jail, especially as no steps were taken by Falkner to make his charge of embezzlement good. The marshal took this view of the matter and, very properly, turned Jones loose. A Good Memory. A Bazoo reporter was sitting in the office of one of Sedalia's hotels, yesterday, quiet ly awaiting the announcement that ''din ner is ready," when his, attention was at tracted to a gentleman who was repeating a list of names of a great many towns in Texas, Kansas, Colorado, Iowa and Mis souri. Another gentleman was holding a note book and evidently hearing the first one recite his lesson. "There !" suddenly spoke up the reciter, "blanked if I've missed but one town out of the whole route." "That's so," replied the other. "Here's your notebook." "What are you doing?" asked the re porter. "Are you a commercial mission ary?" "jNo, I haven't the honor of belonging to that very select class of men. I am a cornetist. You see," continued the cornet ist, "I have just finished a six months' tour with the Oakes Bros.' concert troupe, and I put the name of every town in which we played in this little book. We played every night in the week, except Sunday nights, and were at no town but one night. We never missed a single engagement in the whole six months' run ; so you see we went to a good many towns." "Were you ever at these towns before ?" "2sever. That is" several guests began pulling their guns and the cornet tooter shut up like a clam. "So you wore trying to see if you could recite the list from memory, were you ?" "That's just what 1 was doing, and 1 did so, with but one miss, and gave them in the order in which were down." Dinn-e-r!" veiled out the handsome clerk and the school was dismissed. The reKrter has also heard that there is a certain miller in this cit' who is blessed with a wonderful power to remem ber. It is said that this man goes to the many grocery stores every day and inquires how many sacks of Hour are wanted and of what size. That he uses neither pencil or paper in receiving his orders, but that he simply writes them on the tablets of his memory, and the goods are delivered just as ordered, no mistakes ever occurring. These two men certainly have most won derful memories. Send for circular of new style ot Hop per Scale with Leveling attachment. Bor den, Selleck & Co., St. Louis. D. A. CLARKE.

Globe-Democrat, Workmanship the best United States. The west-bound Pacific was one hoar late yesterday evening. During the year 1881, 1,647 ears of freight were shipped over the Pacific from Parsons. The trains, both freight and passenger, are running all right to St. Louis and other eastern points. Freight train No. 36, local, dne at 6 p. m., did not arrive until 1 o'clock last night from Kansas City. The United States circuit court has granted an injunction restraining: the New Jersey Central railroad from issuing more stock. The K. & T. train from the south was more than an hour late last night. Con ductor King took the St. Louis passengers through on second No. 2. H. G. Dewey, roadraaster of the Pacific, was reported last evening to have sustained an injury at Etlah, vesterdav.

The telegraph line to Lexington is all right. Connection is now made at Hig ginsville for all eastern points. The line on the main Missouri Pacific, east, is not yet in working order further than to a point some forty miles east of Chamois. The managers of the St. Louis & Wes tern railroad are considering a proposition to build a branch of that road from Spring field to Marshall, in Saline county, to con nect with the C. & A. at that point. We think, however, the road will be built on paper, mostly. Ed. Comstock, an old Sedalia boy, now running a passenger train on the L.

A bad row took place in Deutsche wine hall, corner Main and Osage streets, Friday night, which resulted in no very pleasant manner to William "Wadleigh, a brakeman on the K. & T, To a Bazoo reporter, Wadleigh stated that he found one of the minstrel trouiH?, which played here that night, was an old schoolmate and boyhood companion Of course the two men were verv Bordering Fine Carpets A SPECIALTY.

Dunnigan, and two or tnree companions, came in. Dunnigan saw the drum, and, picking up the sticks, began to pound it at a lively rate. The minstrel man told him 'o quit, that the "boss" would dis charge him if he heard any one beating the drum. Dunnigan applied a vile epi- thet to the drummer and kept on with his beating.

His wounds were dressed yesterday morning. IJLTKR PARTICULARS. A Ba'xk) reporter visited the Wine hall, and from the bartender, Charles Kailleisen, learned that the row actually began on the sidewalk instead of in the building. The cause of the disturbance could not be stat ed, nor did the bartender know that there was any trouble uniii the parties had re turned to the room, when they began hit tine each other. I can save you from 10c yard on to 20c per At first Mr. Deutsch was inclined to blame J his employe for not interfering and put i ting a stop to the row, but when he learned that that was an impossibility, he felt that no one connected with house was to blame. Brink, the special policeman was on hand, but made little, if any, show towards inter fering. General report charges him with cowardice in the matter. A glass was thrown against the St. Louis. The line on the K. &T. division of the Missouri Pacific south was all out of order yesterday, and no dispatches were received from the south. A force of men are now at work fixing up the lines. Conductor Merrifield brought the first train through from St. Louis, direct, on Fridav night, at-riving four hours late. He ieit Si. Louis on time, and had eleven coaches jammed with passengers. He was compelled to proceed cautiously along where tne recent breaks occurred, which accounts for his not arriving on time. Merrifield had a new porter out from St. Louis Fridav, and to hear him call some of the stations was amusing. When Knobnoster was reached the ' coon" went through O, My Dolly !" Yesterday afternoon a Bazoo reporter was skipping along North Main street, when his attention was called to a little girl whose cries of distress were enough to enlist the sympathy of a lamp post. The Kazoo man went to the child and asked lier the cause of her grief. ''See my dolly there in the mud, and I can't get her out," was tiie piteous plaint of the little one. "How came Molly' there?" asked the Bazoo man. "Well, I was just a crossin the street when I dropped her out of my arms" boo hoo, boo hoo "and I want you to get her for me " The reporter said that he would, and into the mud he waded to rescue the poor pet from the sea of slush into which she or it had fallen. When the dolly had been restored to the heart broken child, her thanks were reward enough for the unpleasant task the reporter had performed, and as she took her dirty and wet treasure to her arms, an ofier of a kiss was tendered the newspaper man,which he took, and then went on his way to seek other items for the people who read the lively Bazoo.

The Bazoo is in receipt S the ffV.wzmg' letter from a gentlenia ef Knobacateg touching the welfare of the littl waif mow in the hands of the county court &r adap tion : Knobnoster, Mo., Feb. 24. 2S32. Editor Bazoo : I notice in th Basu of the 19th inst., a piece headed "Yoa Hpve It," in regard to a child kept Mn. Prewitt. If you have not got at liome for it yet, please let me know, and if yon cm have the child? in Sedalia some day, I my wife will come down.

Please let me know at your earlTtst con venience and oblige Peter Scjutltsl The Bazoo would say to Mr- Scialti that the proper course for himx to jraraue is to wait upon the county court at ite next session, which is some time early in March. The child will be there where he and his wife can see it. If they sincerely desire to take the little creature and adopt it as their own, it is very probable that th county judges will allow them to dtM. It seems strange that so beautiful and; brigltt a child has not long since been gratefnlfy taken to the hearts of some childless conple. As far as known there hav been but few applications for the adoption ot this child, and it is likely that Mr. aa. 3Irs. Schultz can have the wee stranger fot the asking. Markets.

Philips was accosted by a Bazoo reporter at the depot last night, where the former congressman was waiting to take the train for St. Louis, and asked what he thought of the appointment of Koscoe Conkling to the seat on the bench of the supreme court of the United States made vacant by the resignation of Justice Hunt. Col. Philips said that it was a surprise to everybody, and he thought it doubtful if Conkling would accept the office. He said that Conkling was a man of unusual abil ity andjjwas a fine lawyer, but he thought that his being out of practice so long would rather interfere with his usefulness as a judge. The law was a jealous mis tress, and if a lawyer allowed himself to fall out of the profession even for a single year, he would be surprised to find how much he was behind. The colonel said that it was burying a man of Conkling's abilities to place him on the bench. Conk ling was one of the greatest statesmen in the country, and an orator of very fine powers.

A large number of employes have been discharged from the Gould system of railroads this winter and the salary of others reduced on the score of economy.

The storm came, the wind blew, and the rain beat upon his railroads; and in repairing the damage and in loss of business, that large amount is now likely to be posted on the other side of the ledger.
