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. Il your lungs are
sore, chest or back lame, use Shiloh's
Porus Plaster. Sold bv our druggist.

fitting Bull has turned shoemaker,
and he pegs in his time with all the indus
try of a white man.
It is sad to behold a proud chieftain so
luidly waxed.
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.
Consul Baker, of Buenos Ayres, thinks
ostrich raising would be a profitable in
dustry in the United States.
I: would as long as the supply of old
iioGp skirts, oyster cans etc., didn't give out
wherewith to feed the animals.
Tom B. "Is the watermelon a fruit
r z vegetable?"
It depends ou how you get the melon.
If you buy it or somebody gives it to you
It is a mere vegetable ; but if you happen
to carry it half a mile, with a granger's
Tmll dog nipping at your heels every jump,
si becomes rich tropical fruit, worth a
thousand vegetables.
Never let woman be moulded to her

From a wife who don't luv us, and chil

A Syracuse hotel has the following

BY ROSA PEAKLK
Ah ! if thou conld'it come back to me,
J ust once, as in that long ago,
With sweet shy grace and winsome smile,
And white rota flutYing t and fro.
If I could tee thee gliding in.
And feel thy hand with light rarest
finish hack from off my heated face
A straying lock, or wanton tress,
I should fal , weeping hitter tear..
And clasping thee with tender fold
Should tel thee, Thad su tiered much
Si uce clinging arms had .owsed their hola.
It yeems .o long -so long ah God!
Why not forget remembering this,
Th.e weary days and month, and years,
Have given thee unending bliss.
Ilemem luring time no more is thine,
Nor cans't thou measure grief, or tears,
As human grieis are reckoned up
God gives tternity not years.
And what are these dark woes of mine
To thfne completed full delight.
What this brief desolateness UTd
To thine inheritance of light ?
Forgive forgive beloved, tast,
Forgive thih weak humanity
That sadly moans thoucan'st not come,
Wait thou ud I will go to thee.

SEDALIA.
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." Miss Rosa Dillon is visiting friends in
Windsor.

AN AGED CHRISTIAN.
"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."

A BAD BLOW.
Burglars at Work at Lamonte?
They Break into Wade's
Store, Blow Open two.
Safe's and Capture
8600 and Many j.
Valuable Pa
pers. 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.
Yesterday mornings after the fire, Frank
McAnally and Henry Willis were cleaning
the "machine" aad were using a stream of
water. "Watch," the engine house canine,
was on hand and concluded to tackle the
water. He did so, in vigorous style, and
as Willis would turn the water on the dog
he would stand to the rack as if fighting a
live foe. To see that dog hop around and
reverse ends made the lamp post smile.
