Another torjedo. This time it was on Fifth street, just east of Lamine. It was struck yesterday afternoon by a wagon loaded with rock, and its explosion brought out the neighbors for a block around. No body hurt, but a little excitemeat was caused. A little daughter of Mrs. Maud be came so much interestei in skating at the hall, last night, that she did not notice how warm she was getting. But she found out afterwards when the heat over came her and she fainted away. She was noon brought around all right. Sam W. Maddux, agent of the narrow gauge at Cole Camp, who spent Friday in this city, has been remarkably successful iu working up business for the company in his section, and that his services in this direction are appreciated is apparent from the fact that his wages have been raised. Sam would be hard to improve upon for ihe position he now holds. Dr Carter, when going home, Friday night last, was overtaken by a runaway team, north of the Banks' place, on the Georgetown road, and run into. The doc tor was thrown out at least fifteen feet. He received a painful but not dangerous wound. It damaged the buggy some and dislocated a wheel on the runaway wagon. The runaway team belonged to Mr Mc Donald, and when found had the wagon tongue and one wheel and axle left. Grateful to Invalids.

Disturbing the Darlings. A remarkably fine band of musicians has been playing in a Main street saloon every night for the past week. Their skill soon became known by report, to the very top notch of our young society gents, and they determined to secure them for a night's serenade. This was done alter midnight Friday night, and the baud, with several young gentlemen, started out to wake from sweet slumber the sleeping beauties, whose charms have haunted their male admirers like a dream of bliss half-remembered. Going out Ohio street, the gallants visit ed every home wherein dwelt a fair inam orata and under her window floated out upon the soft air delicious strains of music, waking the sleeping beauty into an ecstacy of feeling which poets have failed to pic ture, with all their wealth of imagination. As if to give added charm to this time of delight, nature gave rich waves of moon light, and breezes blew as soft as those from Ceylon's Isle, which crept with stealthy step through half-opened lattice and coyly played with brown or golden tresses as they lay in fancy freedom on downy pil lows. But there ! The reporter's Pegasiis has run off with him and the muse has fled.

She is a lady about forty years of age, and although not handsome, has a pleas ing face and one that denotes intelligence. She is highly educated, and on the DEATH OK HER HrsBANP, a gentleman well known throughout Mis souri, was possessed of some $65,000 in her own right, besides being custodian of about an equal amount for her children, the oldest of whom. DeWitt Clinton Stone, will attain his majority in October next. Besides this son. Mrs. Stone has one little girl and two little bovs The friendship that sprang up between Mr. Hall and Mrs. Stone in St. Louis, five years ago, was ultimately the result of their forming a co-partnership for conduct ing a banking business at Warsaw. In the meantime, this friendship had ripened into something stronger, and Mr. Hall made application for a divorce from ins second wife. and the proceedings are still pending. It was Mr Hall's intention, as soon as he had obtained a divorce from his second wife, to wed Mrs. Stone, and with this ob ject in view they established the bank at Warsaw, both removing to that point, where they would be constantly thrown in to each other's society and "each might learn to know the other more thoroughly. In October they removed to Warsaw and leased the building formerly occupied bv Mr. J. D. Briggs as a bank by large odds the finest in the town. It is a two-story brick, the bank being below, while above are several rooms used as sleeping apart ments. Into these room Mr. .Hall and Mrs Stone and her children removed, fur nishing them in elegant style. For a time they had a family in the house with them, with whom Mr. Hall and Mr. Stone and children boarded, and ALL WAS MOVIXK ALONG NICELY. But the family stopped but a short while, and Mr. Hall and Mrs Stone and children remained, taking their meals at a restaurant. In a city the size of Se dalia, this would have been con sidered all right and proper, and the finger of suspicion would never have been pointed at the parties interested In a village like Warsaw, however, it is differ ent. The mere fact that Mr. Hall and j Mrs. Stone were occupying rooms in the same building, the latter surrounded bv' her children and housekeeper, was con strued into something improper some thing bold and bad. The better element of society did not for a moment tolerate these rumors, but there are always persons who will make a mountain out of a mole hill in cases of this kind, and so they did in -this instance. DeWitt Clinion Stone, the oldest child of Mrs. Stone, WAS NOT A UTTLE TO BLAME for a portion of this talk, and from this time forward he figures quite prominently in the article. His associates were not of the best, and to his comrades he denounced Mr. Hall most bitterly, characterizing him o w. .....w -- uu o iubu milium honor To still others he told a different . I siory, an i trouble brewed on every hand. J RECEIVED ! A NEMT Line of Fine Suits, HATS, .SHIRTS AND PIECE GOODS FOR TAILORING. LOWEST PRICES OFFERED. CALL AND SEE US.

Young Stone has been a spendthrift from earlv bovhood da vs. and at the suesestion of Mr. Hall, Mrs intone put a check upon his wild career. The large sums that had been handed out lormerly were curtailed, and of course this greatly incensed him. He accused Mr. Hail of Wing the cause of it all, and vowed he would have vengeance Matters went from bad to worse, and the lives of Mr. Hall and Mrs. Stone were made AS 31ISKRAIU.E AS IfWIIiI.B t bv the conduct of the ot the laUv s son. vnie two uiunths ago he married, and a change for the better was looked for but wa. not realized.

They discerned instantly that his talk about Hall was nothing but persecution, and with those who had at first thought there might be some truth iu the ugly rumors, the idea was instantly diselled The Bazoo reporter talked with all the best business men of the village on the subject in controversy, and TIIEV AHE ALL FRIENDS of Mr. Hall and Mrs. Stone. The mere fact that they occupy rooms in the same building and take their meals in a restaurant, has given rise to all this talk, and the Bazoo regrets that the good people of Warsaw permitted themselves to make so much fuss about of nothing. Mrs. Stone is well known throughout Central Missouri, where she has many warm personal friends. That she is a good and pure woman, is not for a moment doubted by those who know her best and this is verified by all of the elite of the town calling upon and sympathizing with her in her troubles. The talk that has existed there for weeks past has placed her UPON A HEP OF SICKNESS, and when the Bazoo representative called upon her he was convinced that her cup of misery was about full. Regarding Mr. Hall, nothing was un earthed by the reporter to show that he was other than what he was known to be in years past-a christian gentleman, ms past domestic troubles have weighed heav- ily upon him, and from this cause he may be termed eccentric. He is one of the best business men in that whole sec tion of country, and nearly all those with whom the reporter talked are solicitous that he should make Warsaw his home, and live down, by a noble life, the talk which has been raised about him. He is a gentleman of ample means, pub lic spirited in the highest degree, and can not but prove a valuable acqusilion to any community.

On the Part of the President of the Benton County Bank. A Discharged Cashier Making it Interesting for His Former Employer. History of the Case from the Commencement Up to the Present Time. The people of Warsaw have been not a little exercised during the past few weeks . over the arrest of Jas E. Hall, president of tne Beiiton County bank, charged with forgery, on information furnished by A. K. Marshall, late cashier ot the bank, who was removed from office on the 10th of January, 1SS2. The bank was organized under the laws of the state and opened up business on the H)th dav of October last, the cash capital being SoO.CHX), with $10,000 paid in. The incorporators were Mr. James E. Hall and Mrs. E. A. Stone, each of 'whom paid in 255,000, and filled the positions of president . and vice-president respectively, In 1S7S, while living in fcst. L ouis, M r. Hall made the aciiuaiutance of A. K. Marshall, a relative of the celebrated Ken tucky Marshalls, and when A CASHIER WAS NEEDED, Mr. Hall took Marshall into his emplov. at a salary of $-50 per month and board. Marshall had been given to dissipation not r a little, and, when picked up by Hall, was in about as sorrv a fix as it was possible lor man to oe. in promised to give up drinking, however, and Mr. Hall felt as sured that he would do so. ' Ac wtfirpfl nil t lit Klfli (I !i f if rVti-.tiar t In- it t .r i i r oaiiK was openei ior ousiness, wim 3iar- I bank was ' certainly have been the result had the J business been properly attended to. Such was not the case. Mr. Hall was compelled f to be away from home a great deal, and miring nis aDsence iarsnaii conducted the aft'airs of the bank to suit himself. l He renewed his old habits, and was often incapacitated tor business on account of 1 drinking. In vain Mr. Hall pleaded with him to reform, but to no purpose, and an open rupture occured between the two men, resulting in MARSHALL BEiNf; discharged on the Wth dav of January, and the 1 appointing of of T. C. Chapman as his i successor. On examining the books, Messrs. Hall and Chapman became convinced that some irregularities existed,and on the recommen dation of Mr. J. C. Thompson, of this city, Prof. W. H. Moore, of Moore & Fraker's college, visited Warsaw for the purpose of examining the books. Mr. Moore is one of the finest accountants in the state. He and an assistant remained there a week, and at the conclusion of his labors, Mr. Moore in formed Mr. Hall that Marshall was short something over $1,200. Marshall, after being discharged, re mained in Warsaw, and was loud in his denunciation of Hall, whom he claimed was a dishonest man, and his discharge was brought about simply because Hall could not use him for his own base purposes. This was, of course, denied by Hall. When Mr. Moore was examining the certificates of deposit, he made the discov ery that there were two for $950 each, and one of them bore undeniable evidence of the date HAVING BEEN CHANGED from December 31st to November 3d. Both of these certificates were in the handwrit ing of Marshall and dulv signed bv him. Marshall claimed that one was a duplicate, and that Hall had changed the date, and thus $950 of his $1,200 shortage could be accounted for. On this information a warrant was issued for Hall's arrest, and he was taken in cus tody, and his trial set for the 15th of March. Mr. Hall secured as counsel Judge Shirk, of this city, and James H. Lay, of Warsaw, while P. D. Hastain, prosecuting attorney of Benton county, represented the state When the case was called, both sides TOro rpndv rtnd the praniinatinn cnmmenrv y ed A question arose as to the propriety .w; t l.nnL- nf ih hnl- t. h I of permitting the books of the bank to be introduced as evidence against Hall, the state's attorney demanding them, while de fendant's counsel were equally as positive they were not admissible. Justice Morgan, before whom the cause was being tried, ruled that the books must be produced, and defendant's attorneys took the matter to the county court, where Justice Morgan's ruling was sustained, and Mrs. Stone was ordered to produce them. They were not forthcoming, and as J ustice Morgan refus ed to have Mrs. Stone locked up for con tempt of court, Mr. Hastain dismissed the case and brought it before Justice Humm where it was called on Thursday last. Again the propriety of introducing the books as evidence arose, and Mr. Hamm dscided that Mr Hall could not be made to produce them. The state's attorney asked that Mrs. Stone be com pelled to produce the books, and aj paper to that effect was issued. Mrs. Stoue was confined in her bed, but made answer through her attorneys that she had not possession of the books and could not get them. It was ordered that she be committed to jail for contempt until she produced them, but owing to her illness this order was not enforced. An adjournment was then had, and it was agreed between the counsel for the state and the defendant that the knotty question as to the admissibility of the books should be argued before Judge Gantt, at Clinton, on Tuesday, and the trial be resumed before Justice Hamm, at Warsaw, on Thursday. Mr. Moore, of this city, who is a witness in the case, says there is NOT A SHADOW OF GUILT I on the part of Mr. Hall, and it will be t so shown when the case is again called up. The deiendant s attorneys are fighting against the admission of the books simply j because the law does not compel them to ! produce them. j Mr. Hall is sure of a vindication, and the purpose is then to arrest Marshall and prosecute him to the full extent of the i law. The end is not yet, evideatlv, from what the Bazoo man was able to learn. LATER INFORMATION'. Yesterday afternoon Judge Shirk ap peared before Probate Judge .lohn A. Lacy and filed an application on behalf of Mrs. Stone for a writ of habeas corpus. Tie petition states that Mrs. Stone was unable to produce the books and pajer required of her under the subpoena duce lecum.ior the reason that said books, whicn were the teller's blotter, general and indi ( vidual ledger, draft book, state saving ! association book of certificates of deposit and ine letter hook, were the joint property of herself and trie defendant J. E. Hall, and that Hall objected to the introduction of the books in EVIDENCE AGAINST HIMSELF, ! and ret used to part with the same, or j deliver them up to her for that purpose, i and. as she had no means of producing said books, she could not bring them before the j court. Whereupon Judge Lacy issued the writ prayed for, returnable torthwith. Mr. Stone will have a reasonable time in which to appear before Judge Lacy, as the law gives a person placed in the circumstances which summoned Mrs. Stone at leat twenty-four hours. The hearing upon thi application will come off' on Monday. Judge Lacy can only try the question a to whether she is lawfully imprisoned, and will have nothing to do with any matter collateral to this question. In other word, the propriety of the justice?s action in :h matter will be the only question. j A Railroad Official Interviewed. ; Not every one so cheerfully communi I cates his knowledge and opinions ad re I cently did E. L. Loweree, esq., cashier of ' the Cincinnati Southern railway, thai splendid outlet to the south from the Uhio. uur representative waited upon. Mr. Loweree. and in reply to certain ques tions the latter gentleman observed: i was suffering from a very severe attack of rheumatism in my right foot ; it was in a terrible condition; the pain was al most intolerable; our family physician waited on me without success; I sent for another well-known M. D , but eveu the twain could do nothing for me; I could not get down here to the office to attend to my duties; iu fact I could not put my foot under me at all, and after nine weeks' suffering I began to grow desperate. Mv i friend whom, of course you know, for he is known by everybody,) Mr. Stacey Hill. of the Mount Auburn Inclined Plane i Kailroad company, called to see me ; he ! spoke very highly of St. Jacobs Oil, and j recommended the remedy to me in glowing I terms. 1 laughed at the idea of using a proprietary medicine, and yet the party recom mended it, (Mr. Stacey Hill, re member,) being a man of sound judgment, set me to thinking the matter over. The next day, when the physicians called, I dismissed them, and said to myself that I would let nature take its course. That resolution lasted just a day. On the following morning I, in a fit of des peration, sent a servant for a bottle of St. Jacobs Oil. I applied that wonderful remedy, and it peaetrated me so that I thought my foot was about to fall of, but it did not ; in fact it did just the opposite. The next morning the pain had eniirely left my foot, the swelling was reduced, and really the appearance was so different al together from the day before, that it ac tually surprised me. I applied more of the St, Jacobs Oil, and that afternoon I walked down here to the office, and was able to attend to my duties and get around as well as any one. Let me say for St. Ja cobs Oil that it beats railroad time, and i alwavssure to win Cincinnati Enquirer. The History. We have been permitted, through the kindness of Messrs. North & Spsrks, com pilers of the Pettis county history, to ex amine a work which they have already completed on our neighbor, Johnson codhty. It is a well written and cleverly arranged book of over one thousand pages, handsomely arranged with cuts of build ings and portraits of prominent men of the county. If our people sufficiently en courage and aid in the enterprise, "Pettis county will have a similar work of which to boast. The Warrensburg Standard speaks thus of the Johnson county history : This work is how complete and being delivered to subscribers. We have exam ined the work and find it in every respect up to the promises in the prospectus. It contains a condensed history of Missouri ; the constitution of the state ; an elaborate history of Johnson county, its early settle ment, organization, pioneers, etc.; its growth, improvements and wealth ; a his tory of Warrensburg and other cities and towns, churches, schools, societies, manu factories, etc. Also, biographical sketches of early settlers and prominent citizens. Also, a map of the county, designating townships, cities and towns, school houses, churches, etc. It is bound in full morocco, printed on fine, heavy paper, and contains 1,000 pages, ln all these respects it sur passes the promises given in the prospectus. Its illustrations are numerous and good. Its information concerning the early set tlement, improvement and gradual growth of the county, is valuable, and will be of increasing value as the living actors pass away.
