THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO. TUESDAY, MARCH 7, 1882.
"Wiintz. for the Sunday Morning liazoo. JOHN SEIGEL. BY R. A. John Seigel, a looker-on at tbe prize fightat Clinton, a short time ago,an account of which appeared in these columns, was shot and killed while in the act of return ing a hat to a person who had requested him to do so. And they buried him, Tom. as he fell; They took not the shoes from his feet, Nor washed from his body the smell ; But in his old work clothes complete They buried him, Tom, as he fell. Twas no crime of his, Tom, that he fell , Our poor, honest, old, innocent friend. The people here all loved him well, And mourn at his untimely end ; They regret that he needlessly fell. Twas thro kindness of heart that he fell, "Twas his last act of life to befriend. And the bystanders who saw all tell That a generous act caused his end ; By a dastardly bullet he fell. And to bury him, Tom, as he fell v as scarcely the fair thing to do By one who had soldiered so well. In battle, dear Tom, it might do, But in peace it's a hard thing to tell. But they buried him, Tom, as he fell ; "or washed him, nordressed him anew. It may be, perhaps, just as well, I!:it it don't seem the fair thing to do, And for Clinton it sounds bad to tell. Shiloh's Consumption Cure. Tris is beyond question the most suc cessful cough medicine we have ever sold. A few doses invariably cure the worst cases of cough, croup and bronchitis, while its wonderful success in the cure of consump tion is without a parallel in the history of medicine. Since its first discovery it has been sold on a guarantee, a test which no other medicine can stand. If you have a cough we earnestly ask you to try it. Price, 10c., 50, and $1.

A girl at Carrollton, Ark., was be trothed to one man when she desired to marry another. She married the first, but promised the second that at the end of six months she would elope with him. This arrangement has been carried out. Now that was in accordance with the limes. Perhaps if she keeps on she'll erve half the men in the country like- n-ise.

It depends ou how you get the melon.

During the past week but very few entertainments have been given, and the most of our society people have contented themselves, with witnessing the incompar able acting of Florence Herbert and her troupe at the opera house. A visit to the theatre is almost if not entirely as pleasant as a ball or tocial re-union, occasionally, and it is now fashionable in all the larger cities to make up parties consistiag of perhaps a half-a-dozen ladies, and a like number of gentlemen, whenever a star actor or actress occupies the boards for this purpose. An enjoyable feature of the afiair is an elegantly prepared and served luncheon at some fashionable restaurant after the play is over. To be sure there is no inconsiderable expense attending occa sions of this kind, but in this feverish day when novelty is the worshiped god, and fashion demands something wherewith to satisfy its insatiable desires, expense must be deemed secondary. People who are entertained must entertain, and while there may be a lack of genuine heart warmth, and only a semblauce of real affection in their hospitality, there must be no lack of display, glitter and "smell of sandal wood."

"With earthly seenes'ui almost through, And I am glad and sorry, too; Glad to be done with toil and strife, Sorry I've erred so oft in life. Glad from temptation to be free. Sorry it yet o'er conieth me ; (find I shall soon be clear of sin, Sorry it .-tiIl doth lurk within. Glad when I reach the shining shore, 111 greet the loved ones gone before; Sorry the view so strangely dear Should dimly to my sight appear. Glad for the hope thatcheereth me, That I shall soon my Savior see ; Sorrv dark clouds obscure mv wav, And caue me irom mv Lord to strav. Glad when I see Him face to face, Behold the fulness of His grace, Then perfect love and constant joy AVill leave no sorrow to annoy." Mrs. F. W. Howard. Lafavette, Ind., Feb. 18, 1SS2. MARSHALL.

Ln the early hours of yesterday morn ing a bold and successful burglarv and safe blowing job was perpetrated at "Lamonte, Mr. J. R. Wade's store being the scene of the crime. From a gentleman who came to the city yesterday a Bazoo reporter gleaned the following facts : The burglars effected an entrance to the store by prying open the front door with an iron bar. This was so noiselessly done that no one heard the burglars at the work. After getting into the store they found two safes, one of them belonging to Mr. J.R. Wade, the other to Mr.Penquite. Thev drilled a hole in the top of the safes and with charges ot powder blew them wide open, the doors being detached from their hinges. The safes were rilled of their contents, the burglars finding Mr. Wade's especiallv rich. They took from it SIX HUNDRED DOLLARS and some valuable papers, but left several checks which were filled out. From Mr. Penquite's safe very little money was taken, as there was only about four dollars in it. But all of his papers, some of them verv valuable to the owner but utterly worth less to the burglars, were taken." Parties heard the noise of the blowing open the safes but suposed it was Jule Busch or some one else shooting rats. The burglar must have been frightened off, as they left their tools on the floor, a thing they wouhf not have been likely to do unless their de parture had been hurried by fear of detec tion. There is supposed to be three men who did the work, as this number were tracked, yesterday, a short distance west of La monte. Two of the men were shod, the other one was in his stocking feet. Yes terday there had been no clue to the burg lars, other than the tracks, but diligent search is being made for them. Mr. Wade has offered a hundred dollars for the apprehension of the guilty parties. This reward ought to stir up policemen and sheriffs to a lively hunt for the burglars. Tbe burglars brokeinto HeraKen's black smith shop to get the crowbar by which, the door of the store was forced open. THAT WOMAN. She Talked a Bazoo Reporter to Death Yesterday. The fire reporter of the paper published for the people now on earth went out yes terday to learn some particulars about the fire which took place early yesterday morning. He saw a mild, pkaant lady, living next door to the burned, house, and from her obtained some information.. Then he left to return to the ofi&ce, where his daz zling corruscations have beeo the wonder and admiration of tbe whole "force, except to his brother reporters,. wo were meanly jealous of his talents. As he was crossing a street in East Se dalia, he heard a shrill voice calling to him. He stopped in obedience to the call and was confronted by. a woman 01 rather ancient years, who thus began on the young man : "Be you an insurance agent v The reporter informed- her that he hachVt enough cheek for that business. "Well, then you; most be a reporter?" The charge was duly admitted. "I thought so, when I saw ycu talking: to that other woman. But you didn't go to the the right house. I can tell you inore than she did." The reporter got out his pump- to go to work on the volunteering and good-hearted woman. But before the machine could be put to use, the glib tongue of the woman was fairly flooding the air with a mass of talk that seemed" ' like Ten nyson's brook, to flow on forever. Not a bit of information was imparted, but a story as long as the moral law sent sizzling upon the defenseless young man. In vain he trisd to ask a ques tion but he was instantly ohut up. Theu he assayed a flank movement, un der ple:i of of pressing business, and triett to "move on.M It was a dreary failure. He hung up on the fence, his "face pale with terror and his friune shaking with fright. Madam," he gasped, "be merciful-show some pity to an orphan; let up on me.'"' But his piteous plea was unheeded, and when he tried to get away he was. rudely seized and thrown upon the sidewalk, while the rattling tongue run faster than ever. Over his prostrate form bent that woman' as as she said: "My father once remarked that procras tination was the- death of trade, his gen tle spirit took its. flight to where fires ar never known aad his eyes softly closed in Mr. IngersolPs. dreamless sletp." With proud. exultation the woman west her way, and the Bazoo wants, another fir reporter. Tiffhtfnff Water. There are fighting men and women, fighting aewspapers, fighting coons, fight ing whisky, but a dog. fighting a stream of water, yesterday, in front of the engiae house afforded most delectable sport to the large and distinguished crowd who witnessed the contest.
