Any items of interest suitable for this depart niKilt from Sedalia. or neigh luring phive, are re-stx'f-tndly solicited. We want a vivacious, active cheery lady correj)ondent in all the neighbor ing towns tributary to Sedalia. Address all such communications to Rosa I'earle, society repot ter, Bksoo office, Sedalia, Mo. If the proverb, "Variety is the .spice of ile." he true, then, in no sense, is it more applicable than in what iuav be termed the social circle Because one clear headed dame with a turn for inventive genius promulgates a new era in the enter tainment of her friends, and makes of it a uuecess, it does not necessarily follow ihat any one else is also bound to adopt that particular mode as a Median or Per ian rule. It is the variety, the ingenuity or purpose that gives the zest to enjoyment, The sparkle to the champagne of pleasure Novelty in any form is welcome, not be cause it is always appropriate, but because It is novelty. Thus, it has been suggested, that the very popular "coffee" which has leen the prevailing form of entertainment during the winter among the society ladies, might be aesthetically softened up and vet receive fresh impetus, bv a little uepariure in me There is alwavs a wav of "tanev work." ' season of waiting pre- vioua to the serving of the coffee, and no oiieue ot women ever vet met together with no other definite purpose than that ol social chit-chat without there were as many mental inventories in progress con cerning dress material, make-up and gen eral effects as there were women present. That this consciousness spoils that ease and harmony which all women long for and thoroughly understand, cannot be de nied, and so fancy work seems to be the readiest relief. Let one enterprising woman produce her "Kensington" "Ara--ene" dramatic "rick rack" or something of a like nature, and there will be a revo iution which will entirely do away with the stilted remark, stiffness, etc., now com plained of. At least this is the view one of the society ladies, of this city, who. in popular parlance, is "up" to everything, lalks of the matter. SEDALIA. Mr. and "Mrs. Mareau are in Boston, Massachusetts.

We speak from experience when we say that Parker's Ginger Tonic is a sterling health restorative which will do all that 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. Iowa, and Miss K.

The poor woman was scarcely able to real ize the magnitude of the blow that had fallen upon her, and kneeling with stream ing and 3gonized eyes by her husband's side, she pressed his hand convulsively to her breast, while the little one with great j bewildered eves stood holding to her dress. It was a sight that will never leave the ! memory of those who witnessed it. The case that the quarrel grew out of was a replevin suit brought by a woman named Mamie Mordell against Carrie Adams, the proprietress of a Third street bagnio. ICarlv represented the woman Mordell, and asked for a change of venue. This was granted, and r.arly claimed that Townsend had over-charged him in fees a matter of ten or fifteen cents. Judge Talbott says: ''Townsend never either abused Early or threatened to whip him when in my court' Irving Houser, the jeweler, took Town- i send's gun out of its sheath after the shooting, and when it was prone on the landing. It had not leen drawn. An eye-witness of the tragedy, a well-known citizen of Leadville, who is familiar with every shooting event in the bloody history of the camp, declares that the cold-blooded and deliberate determination with which Iv.irly shot Townsend has absolutely no parallel, lite man tooK neiioerate aim, s and fired successively without the least! sign of fear or trembling. His face, he says, wore an expression that can only be described as devilish in its murderous determination. The victim is a man about forty years of age, and has been a resident of Leadville for about three years. He was a valuable and trusted member of the police force under Chief E. rs H. Watson, a position which he continued to fill up to a very recent period, having been reappointed bv the present adminis- r I tMt;,in Horn...i;n itnr nF.

He has at various times engaged in mining, and a short time ago owned considerable mineral property in New Mexico, as well as in the vicinity-of Leadville. By a series of re verses, however, he lost nearly all of his possessions, and at the time the calamity overtook him, to-day was, a comparatively poor man. He has a wife and a chiId,who were immediately notified of the distressing event, and at once hurried to the place where the unfortunate man was dying. Mr. Thomas Chestnut, of the firm of Newman, Chestnut & Stevens, of Pueblo, brother-in-law of Townsend, was notified by telegraph, and will probably come up on the first train. T. C. Early,the murderer,is a man of per haps 27 or 28 years He is a native of the south, and has been a resident of Leadville tor perhaps three years. He is a- lawyer, and a member of the firm of Danford & Early. He has never enjoyed a very large or lucrative practice, but has engaged in some outside speculations, notably Denver real estate, from which he realized consid erable money. He has been known as a fierce, partizan democrat, and figured to a greater or less extent iu the manipulation of party affairs in this county. During the past year he was employed in several criminal cases tried in the district court, and had a leaning toward that branch of a 4-r a - his profession.

I Header, of the Bazoo will recollect the case of J. B. Jennings, an able voting law- ver of Osceola, who wu sent to" the peni - tentiarv from that place about two weeks ago Jennings tried the exieriment which j so many men have failed in, and that was I trying to get the best of whisky. He went i on until the ret! liquid had totally ruined . him. hi, character, integrity. reputation and moral qualities. He became a swind - ' ler and a beat. Finally, under the pre- tense that he had reformed for good, and would drink no more, he induced the cir- cuit clerk of St. Clair countv to lend him lorty-two volumes ot the .Missouri reports. . saying that he wauled to refresh his mem ory as to the law and prepare himselt tor active practice. In common with every body in Osceola, the clerk desired to help in every possible way a man who was try ing to get up again in the world. He ac cordingly lent Jennings the books, and that worthy took them to his office. His first essay towards refres-hing his memory consisted in removing the name of the clerk from the backs of the books, and putting his own in its place. The demon of drink had got possession of him again, and his .1. t. . . l. I I C?4 T ' and there sell them at secoud-hand, such i i-.. t. i i - i books oeing aiways siapie ana 01 reaay sale. He went to St Louis, sold the bookV and realized quite a sum of money. He went on a prolonged drunk, and was final ly arretted and indicted for his crime. He was tried, convicted and sentenced to the penitentiary for three years. He was guilty of numerous other swindles, which will now, of course, go unpunished. But Jenniugs had a good heart after all, and a more than common intelligence, as the subjoined letter to the people of Osce ola, and the poetry which follows it, will show. No better temperance lecture than that afforded by the history of Jenuiugs could possibly be devised. The following are the letter and the poem to which reference has been made. The letter is the last he ever wrote and the poem was composed while in jail awaiting the trip to Jefferson City in pur suance of his disgraceful sentence: JENXIXfiS LAST I.I7TTKK When this letter is read by your many readers I will be dead in law and dead to the world.

Oh! mother, can I ever see the day when I can make you happy ? I have brought you nothing but sorrow all my life. And yet God knows I love -my aged mother with an undying affection, and if ever I get back I will prove myself worthy of her love. I hereby tender my heart's grateful thanks to thoe whole-souled friends who aided me in my trial. May God bless them all. Let me in a special manner thank my attorneys, Messrs. Lucas, Statton, Mead and Neal with a full heart. I make this pnblic acknowledgment to those big hearted, philanthropic men who worked so nobly without fee or the hope of reward. They will not like for a witness when we all meet before the bar of final judgment. I do hoje thai my life may be spared that 1 may be able to at least in a small way re munerate them financially, to show " my gratitude. And there is Tom F.mprson, the jailer, who has ever been so courteous and kind and patient with his nervous prisoner, and always feeding on the best his own table contained, that I feel like saying grand old Tom, may that big heart never know sorrow, for a better heart don't beat than yours. He has been kinder to me uian my own orothers. Now, dear friends,! must bid you a long farewell. la a few days more and J. B.

Yesterday a visit was paid to the "boys" by a representative of this paper and he was rejoiced to find all. even the worst cases, getting along splendidly.

William McCIain, a brakeman, running with Conductor Harry Manning. He had his right hand crushed while coupling an engine to a car. Came from Denison yes terday. Frank Lloyd got tired of the presence of a tramp in a box car, and so kicked the cuss off. In doing this Frank found the latter end of that tramp as hard as a bumper,and the result was he sprained his ankle. ank should select some softer place next time whereon to plant his foot. He run with Conductor Chedell, and came in from Kirkwood yesterday morning. The reporter was shown what is intend ed to be a very handsome reception room It is the first room to the left, as you enter the main building, and is now being fitted up. The walls and ceilings are covered with a handsome decorative paper, with a. maroon border. The wood-work is to be I grained with black walnut, and the panels with French walnut. Gold and ebon v fur niture with plush upholstering, a marble top center table and large mirror, will give an added cheeriness to the roomThe papering is done by V. R. Hulland, and the graining by Oscar Swineford, both of the K. tfc T. paint shop This work re flects great credit on these young men, and is an indication that they are very fine artists. In the rear of the reception room is one to be fitted up for a library for the use of the hospital patients. Here will be kept all the latest papers, periodicals, and such, hooks as will entertain and instruct. Out in the yard Superintendent Wesson wa found bossing the putting up of a wire fence. The reporter offered his services. but they were sarcastically declined, and he left instanter. That fence will blow down in less than a week. The only bitters and the only prepara tion of iron that gives complete satisfac tion is Brown's Iron Bitters. It contains no alcohol. It does not blacken the teeth. It gives real strength. SOLD THEM ALL. The Man Mclntyre the Grimmeet Joker Who ever Struck Se dalia He lakes the Cake. The neatest piece of jugglery which has been played on the police and reporters of this city for a great many moons, was that one played by the fellow who claimed to have been robbed and denuded in a box car on last Friday evening, just about the twilight hour, but which he could not make known until darkness had thrown its mantle over the earth. Our Saturday morning papers came out strong and, glaring in this sensational matter, crowning their ac counts with striking head lines that a blind man could read It was a "fat take," for there had been a dearth of news for several days, the like of which was almost unpre cedented. Even the police were getting lonesome, and were anxious for something to turn up. That fellow Mclntyre told a plausible story, and the officers only did their duty in searching for the villains, as likewise did the reporters in duly interviewing and writing him up.

And didn't the police wish, yesterday, that they could lay hands on that man I He would have been stripped, sure enough and well bastinadoed, and don't you fail to write that on the tablet of your memory. Imagine Officers Holland and DeLong trotting around over about ten miles of territory with that fellow ambling along with them in Dr. Boyer's big breeches and a pair of boots seven numbers too large for him. What a sight was that, my countrymen ! And then to think that it was all a ghastly, anticipated April-fool joke. Well, now, laugh some more. Why, that fellow went into a Main street saloon Friday, and begged a drink; then he went over across the track to a dive, where he was stripped and thrown into outer darkness. This is, in brief, the story of Mclntyre' sad experience in Sedalia. He came here without a cent, played it fine on police and reporters, and yesterday morning walked out of town, after having recovered his own suit of clothes. Let us go out and weep, gentlemen of the press. Victorien Sardou is the best known of all the French dramatists of the day, botk in and out of France. He is a prolific author, having written nearly fifty playa in about a quarter of a century. One fourth of this number may be said to have: been great successes.
