To-dav the Bazoo wants to talk a little to the girls. Of course you will toss your heads and say with a sort of disdain, 4 'Pshaw, we have heard enough of advice; what we waut is something truly sentimental and pret ty. Don't bother us with worn-out platitudes." 2$ow,just there you are mistaken. The "sentimeatal" and the "pretty" are all very well im the parlor or out strolling, under bright stars, with some smitten young fellow, but you need a little wholesome advice and warning on a subject which the pul pit never touches. And for this rea son the Bazoo asks your meditative attention, while it talks to you in a fatherly way. Our text is a short one,but it is full of meaning. It is, "Keep Off the Streets." This may seem superbly presump tious on our part, but if you were not such innocent creatures, you would not so think. You know nothing of the world. Your lives are so circum scribed and set about by certain metes and bounds, that it is impossi ble for you to learn of the wicked wiles and cruel ways bv which men entrap and ruin their victims. jOf course you are in 10 special danger yet and the safe-gaurds of home and your honor and purity, will prove a strong defense against designing men. But you ought to know that you are liable to be wrongly judged and rudely spoken of if you are constant ly seen parading the thoroughfares. Given a young lady who daily comes down town and is a constant Tisitor at dry goods and millinery stores, who is as regular in her ap pearance at the postc ffice as the mail itself, and you have one of whom men sav : "Who is that girl ? I see her on the street every day." The inquiry and the comment are not complimentary. They imply suspicion and are born of no pure heart. Think of it a moment, You have been entrusted with some very pre. cious jewels. Among them may be named modesty, purity and chastity. These are gems which should be prized by every woman as above price, dearer than life itself, more beautiful than the loveliest of faces or the divinest of forms. To keep these jewels bright and im soiled should be her constant care and solicitude, With them woman is God's most perfect work; without them she is like a ruined temple of beauty and wealth. To despoil her of one of these jewels is to ruin her for life. But this can not be done without her knowledge and consent. Especially is this true of the first named. If a young lady becomes bold, forward, displays a desire to be seen of men, is "loucT of speech and dress, coquettishly dis ports herself diurnally upon the pub lic streets, she may rest assured that her claim to modesty will not be worth a baubee in the social market and her fair name will be tarnished, and ban died about in terms far from polite and complimentary. Certainly this is a very attractive season of the year in which to get out. The spring styles are calling for ad mirers and the call is not in vaic. With artistic display store windows are blossoming in beautiful airy fairy fabrics and unmentionable articles which go to make up the darlings wardrobe. The desire to see and han dle and price these lovely attractions cannot be completely overcome, nor would it be right for those for whom fashion so incessantly toils and plans to utterly ignore her han-iiwork. WW 1 Woman must aress as handsomely as she can afford. Men love to see her in elegant attire a ud for this end they freely spend their money. But there is no necessity for any young lady to daily bedeck herself out in winning style and rush from store to store wich no other purpose in view than to see if something new has ar rived since she was there yesterday O afternoon, or to flirt with the young man behind the counter as he simpers i out his sickly flatteries. There are a few young ladies in this city, as there are in all towns, who are confirmed street walkers, in the sense used above. They can bt seen down town every day unless it is as stormy as was yesterday, and their saddiass about have become the source of no little comment. Now girls, don't. Stay at home at least half the time. Mother may need your help. You can, by dint of exer tion, learn to love the study of help ful books and the improvement of L your minus. y an means save your self from becoming an object of inter est to street loafers, by reason of your constant appearance before them. The talk is now over and you can get ready for church. This sermon will not be followed by the contribu tion plate. Not to be outdone by Chicago, St. Louis comes to the front with a de cided cyclone in the ecclesiastical world. A "Father" Betts, of the Episcopal church, has startled the slow-going christians of that city by the introduction of the censer in his services. bo great is tke sensation produced oy tnis aping or the iiomisn -1 r- . -- . 1 ceremony mat me papers are aevouig columns to it and interviews are as plentiful as murderers is their jail.

There are 500,000 pec- pie west of the Mississippi river wh, for the good name of this beloved land, rejoice at the nomoreness of tht maurading murderer. The few who "S3rnipathize" in Missouri will pale into insignificance at no distant day. Says the Kansas City Times : "As a matter of fact and without the slightest disposition to boast, it may be said the Times surpassed evry paper in the country in its com plete and graphic description of the great cyclone at Brownsville." As a matter of fact the "complete and graphic description of the great cyclone at Brownsville" appeared in the Bazoo the day before it did in the Times. No Times reporter vis ited Brownsville until two diys after the storm. The Bazoo had one there within a few hours after the disaator. The Bazzo is a generous paper. It is always willing to help struggling genius up the ladder of fame and for tune, and is perfectly willing that tyros in journalism should freely draw on its bank of good things. But thtre s such a thing as an abuse of this privilege, and it is with pain that wt call attention to the fact that tht Gate City Gazette, of Denison, recent ly cribbed five articles from this pa per without giving any credit what ever. All the articles appeared in one issue. This is very naughty. A mania for committing suicide is having a big run in St. Louis, just now. Every day one or more of its citizens, tired of the dust and sick at heart over the inefficiency of the police commissioners and the delay of Judge Laughlin in passing upon the gambling cases, quietly snujls out the light of mundane existence and hies away to eternal rest. Somehow the beer of St. Louis cuts quite a figure in these "removals." If, when Mr. P. H. Saugree comes into office, he will emulate the heroic example of Prosecuting Attorney, 'Beckless" Joe Harri,of St. Louis, ii dealing with the gamblers of Sedalia, he will laise himself greatly in the estimation of the the better class of people in thi3 city. Give these gentry a whirl, Mr. San gree. State Senator Morrison, ia stroig language, pronounces an interview published in the Pest-Dispatch, ia which he is made to express opinions not at all complimentary to Governor Crittenden, as uatrue. He denies giving expression to any such lan guage. Hannibal will break ground, this week, for one of the finest opera houses in the state, outsido of St. Louis. Sedalia should not let the lumber town outdo her in this matter. The Post-Dispatch is still yelping at Governor Crittenden. There is a bare suspicion that the governor is not losing any sleep over this tin-pan Premit No Substitution.

MEAN BEYOND MEASURE. i!'alan8i the Late Windsor Res taurant Man, Afain Comes to the Surface. During the thirteen years which the "paper published for the people now on earth" has been printed, manv persons hare : ; .1 I I 1 11,. .v ve ueeu injurea oy puon- eause. Of this niiBiber is Morris Eakins. a young man wno recently conaucieu a res t .1 , . , taurant at Windsor, and whose brutal treatment of his young wife was shown up in these columns a few weeks ago. He came to Sedalia on receipt of the paper, WITH BLOOD IX HIS EYE, and wanted a retraction This he received, but it was not of the nature desired, and he was enacted some two weeks ago. He married at Union Citr, clandestine- ly, a beautiful young girl not yet sixteen years ot age, ami with her lie came west to seek his fortune, locating at Windsor, While residing there HE incurred the wrath f number of persons by his con- duct, and it was evident to all that he wai gradually causing the life of his young ife wafle awa- This was the cau of the Bazoo s article. On returming to Union City, he took his wifc t0 the faome ol his parents, where he mtenaea sne sneuia remain lor a time. although her parents also resided in tho town. 1 he latter, on learning how Eakins had treated his wife in Missouri, insisted that their daughter should come home to them, where proper care would be be- bestowed upon her, and THE CHANGE WAS MADE. At that time she was very low, and her death would not have occasioned surprise at any mument: but, notwithstanding this. Eakins left town and went on a wild goose cnase inrongn uie couniy, winning up at Greenville, Darke county, Ohio. His parents learned that he was there, and as the wife was growing gradually weaker, they telegraphed for him to come if he wished to see her alive. To this summons he paid no attention, and a second message was sentihim, but still he came not. The calls of the young wife for tho absent one were FITIFUL IX THE EXTREME. She seemed to have forgotten the wronrs he had heaped upon her, and onlv asked that she might see and bid him farewell before her spirit took its flight to its Maker. Eakin's father hereupon interested him self in the matter and made a trip to Greenville, where he met his son and com- pel lea mm to return to union ;iiy, although the brute was averse to so doing. On arriving there on Monday ne visited the sick woman, and on Tuesday shodied, and was" buried on lhursday, the 13tk inst. The above facts the Bazoo learns from an unquestioned source, and that Eakins should receive the condemnation of all good people, there is not the shadow of a doubt. The only trouble with the Bazoo's first article is that it did not give Eakins one-halfthe scoring he deserved.

A Widower of Seventy Who Married a Young Woman of Twenty. A Scandal That is Boin&r Discussed at Deerfield, in Varnon County. Although Vernon county has not proven a rich ield for sensational journalism in the pat, it comes to the front in to-day's Bazoo iu first-class style, and furnishes a couple of interesting articlesone being located at Nevada, while the other is at Deerfield, about ten miles west of Nevada. One of the wealthiest men of Deerfield is Mr. J. M. Waddell, a merchant aged im the neighborhood of seventy years. Up to six months ag WADDSLL WAS A WIDOWER, but at that time he tired of "going it alone," and commenced looking around for a companion with whom to conclude the voyage ot lite. He otten visited Fort Scott for the purpose of buying goods, and it ws on one of these trips that he met a young woman of that place whose name is unknown to the Bazoo man. She is repre sented as possessed of charms of person which were calculated to turn the head of a much younger and handsomer wan tkan the widower, and it is no wonder he becamo her devoted admirer, and, in fact, suitor for her hart and hand. He told her of the wealth of which he was possessed, and of the luxurious ease she would always enjoy in case 9he CONSENTED TO BECOME HIS WIFE, and of course she said, uYes, I'll be the old man's darling !" As stated, they were married botween five and six months aso. and the vonnr bride took up her residence with her hus band at Deerfield. Be it known, however, tho place is but a small village, and Mrs. Waddell soon tired of the monotonous life she perceived iu store for her. She contrasted it with tho past, aid although surrounded with all that wealth could purchase, she grew tired and insisted that they remove to Fort Scott. In vain he pleaded that his busiuess would aot per mit of the change that he was compelled to make Deerfield his place of abode. For a few weeks Mrs. Waddell would make frequent visits to her old friends in Fort Scott, remaining a day or two, then RETURNING TO HER HUSBAND. But even this failed to satisfv her, and she insisted that he lurnish rooms for her at tort Scott, and she would grant him the privilege of visiting her whenever he do- sirod, provided he would intorm her as to the date ot his coming. He could not deny this seeming small request, and apartments were furnished most luxuriously for her at Scott, and the next lew weeks were blisstul ones indeed especially to the wile, rirst he would visit her, then she would take a run up to see him. During one of Waddeli's visits, though, ne naa HIS SUSPICIONS AROUSED u unuing nis wne enteriainiug a younger ana nanasomer man, ana he demanded an explanation. The wife was not in the least abashed, and it was considered bv her a re uiarkablygood joke that her liege lordshould think she would be guilty of improper con duct. The visitor was an old friend who had merely droped in, and that was all there was of it. This satisfied Waddell for the time being, and he was happy in the tkought that HE POSSESSED HER EXT 18 E LOVE. But the poor dupe had reckoned without his host. A little later he again had his suspicions aroused by some indiscreet act on the part of Mrs. Waddell, and he merely remarked that he would like it if she would give up her rooms at ort iscott, and take up her residence with him at Deerfield. She, of course, was indignant that he should even surmise that she had been guilty of any wrong, and courted a thorough investiga tion, offering to lend him all the assistance within her power. There was but one thing that would satisfy the husband, and he demanded' that Mrs. W. enter into a written contract NOT TO XTERTAIN GENTLEMEN VISITORS during his absence, under any circum stances whatever. Would she sigu such a paper ? Why, certainly she would; would do anything to convince (?) him that noth ing improper was being done by her. The paper was accordingly drawn, and Mrs. Waddell attached thereto her signature, i laughing in her sleeve all the while to think how easily the old man had been fooled. The Bazoo man endeavored to ascertain the exact wording of the paper in ques tion, but was unable to do so. It was learned, though, that the husband has a copy, and is satisfied that Mrs. Waddell is all that is good and pure. She, it is said, has a great deal of sport over the contract, and, whenever a gentle man friend (?) calls, takes great pleasure in showing it, commenting freelv on the same, all of which goes to show that am old fool is the largest one of all.

He Receives a Note From the Indignant Citizens, and Jumps the Town. The Cloainff Chaptor, and Ome That Will ProTe of Intoreat to All. When George D. Ellis, the insurance agent of Barry, Illinois, received a little free advertising in the hst issue of the SUNDAY MORNING BAZOO, it was then thought the subject was about exhausted. Such, however, is far from being the case, as will be shown by what is to follow. When the Bazoos reached I U 1. , l . r. i iucj flac eageriy sougiu alter OV the people of the place, and the large number sent were soon disposed of. Ellis, of course, perused the article in question, bat, as on former occasions, denounced everything contained in it as false, and said he would procure satisfaction at the hands of the law. He still insisted that he was never married to Miss Mary Clark, of Sedalia, and no proof to that efiect could be produced. In this respect HE LIED, for the Bazoo has his owa letter to prove that such is a fact, and to-day presents it. The Bazoos expose of the villain created not a little excitement in Barry, and the general impression seemed to be that he should be forced to leave the place, as he was undoubtedly a dangerous man in the community. In proof of this, the following letter front a prominent citizen is given : Barry, III., April 18, J82. Editor Bazoo: The packages of Bazoo's that came at 10 o'clock yesterday were soon sold, and they were in demand, many jersons calling for them after all were sold. There seemed to be great ex citement among the people of our little cijy. Many talked of tar and feathers, or taking a horse whip and wearing it out on the miserable wretch. The following note was finallv sent him : Barry, 111 , April 17, 1882. G. D Ellis: You are hereby notified to leave this city within three days, or the horse whip will be applied. You are a miserable scoundrel. (Signed) Committee. Ellis at once took down his iusuraice signs and collected his traps together and took the first train, to the satisfaction of all good people. He went to Pittsfield, this countv. Yours trulv AND HE DID SKIP. As stated in the above letter, ho skipped concluded that there were many better towns than Barry for the insurance busi ness, but the chances are he will leave Pittsfield on receipt of this issue of the Bazoo. In proof of the Bazoo's statement that Ellis was married to Miss Clark, of this city, the following postal card, in Ellis' own handwriting, is published, and the card in now in possession of Ellis' sister-in-law here." Kansas City, June 30, 1878. "This will inform you that Mary and I were married at the Tremont house, this city, this morning, at 2 o'clock. "Please inform the Bazoo. "Geo. D. Ellis " Let Ellis denv the above if he dare, and the document will be produced. ANOTHER CHARGE. Ellis is liible to experience some diffi- cultv from another source, as a cor respondent informs the Bazoo in the fol lowing letter: Bahry, III., April 17. Editor Bazoo: From whatwecan learn, Ellis did not leave Missouri until after May 29th, 1881. It seems that he was then at Montgomeiy City, and previous to that was at Sedalia. Now, we would be pleased to know whether or not he was a citizen of vour state in Mav, 18S1. Anv information on this subject will be thank fully received. If he was a citi.en of your state at that time, and had done any voting, there will be no trouble in putting him behind the bars, for he cast a vote at our townsnip election on the oth inst., which 'would only be about ten months since he left Montgomerv Citv, Mo. A voter muse reside in tnis state one vear before he can vote. A violation of the law in this respect is somewhat severe. He oueht to be under lock and key if guilty, and will be if positive evidence can be had. Yours truly, As to whether Ellis voted in Missouri, the Bazoo is unable to state. ATTEMPTS TO BULLDOZE. The Barry Adage copied the Bazoo's article, and Ellis called upon the editor and attempted to intimidate him by threatening criminal libel, and this, too, after he had published a reply in that paper. On first taking up his residence at Barry, Ellis made fabulous statements as to his wealth, standing, etc., all of which were accredited by Miss Cora Allen, the young lady to whom he was engaged to be married. Finally, after the wedding day was set, and the arrangements nearly com pleted fcr the marriage, friends were con sulted in regard to the affair and the young lady was advised to postpone the ceremony until some inquiry could be made into his case. This was done, and it was as certained that he was A DRUNKARD, PIMP, LIAR AND SCOUNDREL on general principles and that his large plantation in Mississppi was in reality some few acres of land, and worth not over $600 at best. All these were told the girl, and she discarded him, and has since married. A letter came to Miss Allen from a Missouri victim of Ellis', sympathizing with her and giving other instances of similar character to her's The letter was accompanied by an article clip ped from a paper last summer, which con tained a summary of his exploits up to that date.
