SEDALIA,'3IO. BAD "BUNDLING." A Practice in Vorue with Young People Engaged in Courting. In certain counties in Pennsylvania a practice called "bundling" exists, and it eems to have been handed down from the early Dutch settlers. The Bazoo had often heard of this practice carried on by young people engaged in "courting," but doubted the truth of the statement until assured by residents from these localities that "bundling" is as much a form of courtship there as hanging on the gate is here. "Bundling," in plain English, is nothing more nor less than a young couple passing the night together on a bed in stead of on chairs or a sofa. The rules require that they remain under the covers and inside their own clothes. The excuse for such an apparently immoral practice is that it prompted early marriages. We are glad to record that with the encroach ments of railroads in these regions the practice is dying out, and it will be a grand thing for the morality of the coun try when it is entirely obliterated. A correspondent of the Detroit News haa found in the counties of Huron, Sani lac and St. Clair, Michigan, a more de moralizing kind of courtship than "bund ling" ever was. It is locally called "sit ting p with a girl." The sitting up is done in the dark, and is not confined to a young man and woman who may have been keeping company for months or years, or are betrothed, but the right is claimed and exercised by any couple whom chance may have thrown together. As a result, in one neighborhood alone, in an area of a few miles there were eighteen, illegitimate births in one year. Strangely enough these mothers escape social ostra cism, and often make most desirable mar riages afterwards. Several philanthropists have interested themselves, and will attempt to get a law passed to prohibit this kind of courtship. A Boy's Luck. The Norristown (Pa.) Herald in a recent issue referred among others, to the follow ing cases of special interest. They are their own commentary. Mr. Samuel C. Nyce, resides at 308 Marshall street, and holds the responsible position of jour ual clerk in the Pennsylvania legislature at Harrisburg. While Mr. Nyce and family were in the country recently, his boy, aged three years, fell and broke his leg. He re covered, but a very troublesome stiffness et in and he could scarcely use the leg. The injured limb was rubbed several times with St. Jacobs Oil, and the stiffness was o much reduced that the boy was able to use his leg freely. Dr. Knipe said it was the use of St. Jacobs Oil that cured the stiffness. Mr. Nyce himself used the Great German Remedy for toothache with good effect, and also for a sprain and pains of rheumatic nature, and always with good effect. Mrs. Nyce also says she thinks the Oil is a splendid thing, and she always keeps it on hand. Henry Willis had the engine horses out yesterday morning for a bit of exercise, :is it were. Thev were hitched to a vrnron heavily loaded with stones, and so fiery were the steeds that it gave Henry all lie wanted to hold them down to a proper and law abiding pace. They are dandies, those horses are. Markets. CLOSING QUOTATIONS Afl furnished specially for the Bazoo by D. R. Francis, commission merchant, 205 and 206 Chamber of Commerce.

To a cor respondent Scorille aaid to-day: I btlieTe the best thing for the country it to let Guiteau bang in June next My reasons are that, as most people believe Guiteau insane, if hanged, the hanging will produce such a reaction of public opinion that the laws treat ing on insane cases will be modified, aad in this result Guiteau will hare done more for bis country than be could by living. I have asked Presi dent Arthur that Guiteau be sen tenced to imprisonment for life, but he made no response. I have since learned that my' letter, accompanied by one from Guiteau, caused the president considerable anger, and that he immediately tore them up. I have an engagement Thursday morning in Washington with Corkhill, when we will settle a bill of exceptions, which will go io the term of court setting April 4. The argumeut will be reached early in May. I will prob ably leave the case immediately upon filing a bill of exceptions. I do not think a new trial will be granted. When a new trial fails I am positive a large number of prominent men will step forward and ask that Gui teau'ssentence'be changed to impris onment for life. I already know of a number ef such gentlemen. It would be a breach of trust to give their names. i Brutally Murdered. Atchison, March 11.
