It is said that a pound of bananas contains more nutriment than three pounds of meat. Ex. It has also been demonstrated that one banana skin has got more slip up and fall down in it than half a dozen roller skating rinks. The last comet is said to have had a tail 4,000,000 miles long. Ex.

A woman has been arrested in New York for abducting a little boy. Ex. The woman who would abduct a little dot when there are so many big one's, ought to be arrested. It is estimated that men have given more thoughts to some device to fasten sus p ader buttons than they have to any one branch of science or philosophy. That is astonishing, but it would be much more, so it there was no such thing as i roperly fastened suspender buttons. There is a .lellerson City girl who has fr&u dying for the last two years; living with one foot in the grave, as it were. 3Sx.

At the opera in Dublin "cntleman ! a -.rcasticallv asked a man standing i - up in f?ont of him if hp. wits ;iu':irp he was ' opaque. The other denied the allegation, s.nd said he was O Brien. A fashion item. says "bugs" of all sorts ad sizes appear on the spring bonnets." Some spring beds present the same ap pearance. A young gentleman advertised for a ife through the Chicago papers and re ceived answers from eighteen husbands, saying he could have theirs. An aesthetic, in referring to valentines, calls them "the scented and gilded messen gers of love." Ex. Maybe so ; but the bedawed ones we received were surelv the messengers of jjique and envy.

The Pretty Actress of the Es capade at the St. James in Trouble. The pretty aptress who was bounced from the St James hotel some days ago, says the Post-Dispach of Friday evening, has again been in hot water. The cause of her trouble generally is a weakness for having strangers in her room, a thing that respect able hotel keepers do not like. The girl is prettv and attractive. .She is an actress bv profession, doing light parts, and her story ! is somewhat remarkable, year ago More than a SHE MARRIED A YOUNG SOX j of a very wealthy New York manufactur- er, whose name is known all oyer the j countrv. The father refused to recognize the marriage, and the young people lived I for a while as best they could. The old I gentleman would lend his son no assistance. j and something had to be done. The girl j at the commencement of this season joined a foupe and started out on the road, Ieav- ng her husband in New York. At New j Orleans, a couple of weeks ago, she left the j company and ostensibly started for New Y( ':, but in realitv came to this citv. The , object of the journey was TO .MEET A CHICAGO DRUMMEIU named Medaugh, whom she had picked up somewhere on the road. After the scene at the St. .James hotel, she came to the La clede and boarded there for several days before it was known who she was. Then suspicious circumstances were noticed and a watch was put upon her. Medaugh was a3 ur. -cuaug,, seen in her company but no cause ol com-! pjaiiti. iiiuc 1111111 a 1 oupic a one hotel the ed 11: i note to the pretty actress, staling that 1 room was required lor other juirpose that Ml E 31 1 ST JEA h Til h 1IO I KL.

The drummer is also absent, and several of the boarders who advanced him Minis of. money on plausible representations would line to see mm again. 1 1 i His board bill was i settled with a dubious check, and the 1k- j tel people are also anxious to know where he. is. It is thought that he went part of ; the way home with the pretty actrcs. A Foolish Mistake. Don't make the mistake of confounding a remedy of merit with quack medicines. We speak from experience when we say that Parker's Ginger Tonic is a sterling health restorative which will do all thai is claimed for it. We have used it ourselves with the happiest results for rheumatism and when worn out by overwork. See ad vertisement. Times. Emma's Red Stockings When Emma Abbott arrived at the Southall-street depot, in Louisvile, Ky ., recently, to take a Short Line train east, the hack that conveyed her stopped at a place in Southall street where the mud was knee deep. Before she could get out, ' an engine punea a car down tne track, when the horses attached to the hack shied, and she. thinking the were about to runaway, opened the door to jump into , the mud. Her gentlemen escorts shouted to her to sit down, but she called loudly ! gave him lifiv cents The event came near turning the negro while, for n was a new , department from his regular custom in ' liTA I Hiring the iouriH'V h npal. nair nf j red stockings, handsomely riceed with ' gilt suspenders, were visible, and the re l)orter looked with an eagle c-e for the t vaccination mark, but it was either too "'S" or 100 low as everyttimg was ier- 1 i - i - fecll.v smooth, so far as could be seen. Complimentary to Cushingr. Mr. G. W. Cnshiug, an old M, K. & T. official, but more recently general mana ger of the Denver & Rio Grande railway, left for Parsons last night, in response to a telegram from a number of railroad friends at that point, requesting him to spend the Sabbath with them. Mr. Cushing was en route from New York to Colorado, and had intended stop ping over in this city for a few days, when the telegram from Parsons called him there After he left the D. & B. G., it was his purpose to retire from the arduous duties attendant upon the life of a railway offi cial, and in the meantime make Sedalia his home. W'hile in New York City, how ever, he was tendered a high position, with a most liberal salary, on one of the largest northern roads in the United States, and was prevailed upon to accept. He will as sume the duties of his office the first of April. He is a thorough railway man and a polished gentleman, and his many friends in Sedalia congratulate him upon his suc cess. A. Mayer, the Bee Hive man-milliner, has secured the services of an expert trim mer from St Louis, who will arrive this week and attend to the wants of custo mers. His stock is now complete in all its departments, and he invites the public to call and examine. Those who have been living in hopes of seeing something on the can-can order in Leavitt's Specialty company will be not a little disappointed. The entertainment :s refined in every particular, and any lady can attend with the utmost propriety.

Mis Lilly acts quite as Written for theSundayMornini: Bazoo A TRUE HEART. BY ROSA TEA RLE. What were it worth and thou hads't won The riches due To kings, or potentates, if not The heart be true? What tho' the glory of the sun Had tinged the hair. And storied beauties of the past Were not more fair? Tho' grace and all things grand or gay Be set apart, Weighed in the balance, what were these Beside the heart? The heart that dares the world's disdain To succor bring. And abnegating, bears from hate Its venomed sting. The heart that woe orgrief makes thine Not joy alone Nor yet the summers golden glow But winter's moan. That turns to thee through good, or ill, Unswayed by time; And gives unto the book of life Unmeasured rhyme. 'Twere worth all else, no matter what. Of wealth or power Such transient pleasures but belong Unto the hour And this, the best of all things best, What e'er accrue, The preciousness of precious gifts The heart that's true. SOCIETY NEWS.

Messrs. Anderson, Fleming, Burt and Fellows sang a lovely quartette arranged for male voices, and their voices blended together very harmoniously, notwithstand ing the fact that it was the first time they had sung it together. "Moonlight on the Rhine," a duet by Mr Leslie and Miss Lillie Clark, was rendered in unexceptionable style, Mr. Leslie's sweet bass notes according with Miss Lil lie's clear soprano perfectly. Sig Carlo Lamoni's "Phaprodie Hon groise" was an exceedingly difficult in strumental selection, but the gentleman was quite equal to it He is a pianist of great merit, every touch of his flexible fingers upon the keys denoting the master. His performance elicited long continued applause, and when, as a recall, he gave the "Sweet Bye-and-Bye," the audience was pleased beyond measure. The "Last Rose of Summer," a cornet solo by Mr. Dave Webb, jr., was another feast of pleasure. Some ef the passages were as tine as even Levi could have ren dered them, and his hearers were delighted. "We'll Have to Mortgage the. Farm," was sung in character by Messrs "Fleming and Leslie and Misses McKeen, Clark and Emmefson. It was pathetic as well as amusing, and elicited applause. The performance closed with an "Or chestra of Fifty Pieces.", Mr. Birchfield being assisted in his performance on the violin by fifty members of the Young Peoples' society, witli paper-covered combs. It was immense, and created much amuse ment. Miss Sallie Potter was the pianist of e l the occasion, and ablv did her nart. f Taken altogether." t will be given by the loung Peoples so- eietv in the near iuture. Society Elsewhere. CLINTON. D.
