The result was very successful. The following beautiful and appropriate poem, written by Mrs. S. F. Buchanan, of this city, was presented to the bride: FOR MISS CARRIE WEILER. Oh sun, shine out in your splendor, Withhold not your tiniest raj, Shine out for my young friend, Carrie, On this morn of her wedding day. For 'tis said the bride will be happy On whom you will deign to shine ; And I want this young friend to behappy, This sweet Carrie Weiler of mine. 1 wisb all her life to be happy With him she has chosen, her mate ; Though I'm sure with hearts true to each other They may brave e'en the darkest of fate. But I wish them both to be happy In all good God has to bestow, And hope's blossoms bloom sweetly around As over life's journey they go. The happy couple, alter receiving the well wishes of their friends, repaired to the depot, where they took the east-bound train for Muncie, Ind., and Lima and other points in Ohio. After a visit of two weeks with relatives of thegroem at these points, they will retnrn to this city . and make their home with the bride's parents. The Bazoo wishes them unalloyed peace, prosperity and happiness in their new rela tion through life, and trusts that when the end comes they may still be one in heart, soul and spirit. Extract.

"iSDMOKD Clay, M. D., Pugwash, N. S. CAUGHT BY THE CYCLONE. The Terrible Work Done by the Wind at McAllister Monday Night. Seven Balled, Forty-three Injured, Four Missing, and Fifty-nine Buildings Destroyed. Yesterday's Bazoo referred briefly to the great destruction of life and property by the cyclone Monday night, at McAllister, Indian Territory, but it was impossible to procure anything reliable, owing to the fact that telegraphic communication was cut off From Robert Flint, Pacific express mes senger, who arrived here on his run from Denison, this morning, a Bazoo reporter learned nearly all of the. particulars, and is thus prepared to give the first accurate information yet published. The cyclone struck Fort McAllister, three miles from the railway station, about 8 o'clock in the evening, and is said to have been the most terrific storm known in the Nation since the white man resided there The town lies in the open prairie and the storm had a full sveep, which seemed to vent its full force in that section. At the hour mentioned a cloud was seen to come from the southwest, rolling and tumblig, accompanied by a terrific roar ing noise. In an instant the track of the storm was strewn with wrecks of houses, deaths, shrieks of the dying and wounded, commingled with the cries of separated and agonized families. Of course the most intense excitement prevailed for a time, and the wildest ru mors were put iH circulation, some placing the loss of life atforty, whije fifty or sixjty persons were mwe or less injured. This was, of courslgreatly exaggerated, but it was bad enough, truly. It is now known that seven persons were killed out right and forty-three wounded. Of these latter, it was thought that four would die last night. The destruction of property was very great, no less than fifty-nine buildings of various kinds being scattered to the winds, while to the southwest of the town couriers report that the storm swept away many farm houses, fences and acres of wheat, while the less of cattle was considerable, and it is thought two or more lives were lost. McAllister is the great coal supply de pot of the Kansas & Texas branch of the Pacific road and the Nation. The shafts, sheds and machinerv of the various coal mines are blown down and destroyed, jvhich will delay work for several days. The property of the railroad named is uninjured, with the exception that tele graph wires are down in many directions, those going north being first repaired. The town is full of visitors, with Indians arriving from all directions. An Associated press dispatch says : Chicago, May 10- A special from Par sons, Kas., says a terrible cyclone passed oyer McAllister, a mining settlement in the Indian Territory, Monday night, and the destruction to life and property was terrible. Seven people were killed out right, four fatally, eleven dangerously and-thirty-nine more or less hurt, while fifty nine houses were totally demolished and thirty others badly wrecked The cyclone cut a path through the timber just as a scythe would mow through the grass. The damage to the Osage Coal and Mining company is very large. The population of the settlement is only 800, and the suffer ing is very great. LATER. The extent of the death-dealing work of the cyclone which struck McAllister, day before yesterday, cannot yet be summed up, as the victims are not all reported. From W. H. Woodward, express mes senger on the K. & T., who came in to-day, a Bazoo reporter learned that up to this morning there had been ten deaths and seven more not expected to live. A stage driver on the Caddo & Fort Sill line was killed by the storm, some sixty miles west of the former place. He was blown from the stage aad hurled several yards away. The destruction to property was very great, the crops in the track of the storm being about destroyed. Great suffering will follow this calamity and help will be needed for these who have been the vic tims of the blow. From Mr. H. T. leinist.who came in from the scene of the wreck, the Bazoo learns additional particulars. Instead of only fifty-nine houses being blown down, there were eighty-six, and in consequence the greatest distress prevails. Especially is clothing and bedding needed, and all who desire to contribute can do so by forward ing their contributions to the Osage Coal and Mining company, at McAllister. The following is a correct list of the killed and wounded, as furnished by Mr. Lemist : Killed Monday night: Mrs. Philip Kewley and baby, the latter aged 18 months. Joe Bell, aged 13 years. Mrs. J. O. Green. K. Atkins' baby, 6 months old. Those that died Tuesday are: David Archibald and Willie Kewley, the latter 8 years old. The following died vesterday: Maggie Rossio, Janies Hardie, 1Ym.

Early last fall .Mr. William .Miller, a plas terer, aged thirty-seven years, was married to Miss Melinda Graham, daughter of Nicholas Graham, who resides in String town, opposite Pohl's brick yard. Miller arrived here a little more than a year ago from Texas, and has been engaged in business with George Xoftsker. Alter marriage he made his home with his father-in-law, and their wedded life has been. to outside appearances, all that either! could have wisked for. For the past two weeks Mrs. Miller has been quite ill, requiring the services of a physician. Yesterday the doc tor called upon her and left a perscription to be filled, but Miller neglected looking after it until about i o'clock last evening. At that time he left his wife in the care of the nurse, and said he would go up town and have the prescription prepared. Hi put on his overcoat, placed his pistol iu his pocket and took his departure, and has not been seen since that time. Some time after midnight the sick woman had her father, Mr. Graham, called, and he started in search of the missing husband. He called upon tke police, but none of them had seeu-h infant he was unable tm obtain even a clue as to ! where he had gone. In conversation with a Bazoo reporter this morning, Mr. Graham said he was convinced that it was a case of wife de sertion, and he was of the opinion that Miller had boarded the 10:30 train, last night, for some point east.

Last night at 10 o'clock Mr. John Hale, for the past eleven years general bnggage niaster at the union depot, Kansas City, died at his home on Summit street from an overdose of opium and laudanum, taken for the purpose of relieving pain.

A Visit to the Ruins the Beautiful Opera House. of The Debris Being Removed, Preparatory to Rebuilding at Once. A List of Those Who are Losers, Together With the Amount of Insurance. A meagre telegram in the Sunday Mohking Bazoo gave the startling intel ligence that a disastrous fire was in pro giess at Nevada, Mo.; that the new opera house was in flames, the fire breaking out about 1 o'clock a. m. Yesterday Nevada presented a sad pic ture when a Bazoo reporter arrived there. The opera house, where had been so much iov and gaiety for six days, was a mass of smouldering rums. Men were standing on the street corners in little knots discussing the situation, while the ladies, who loved THE IDOL OF THE CITY as a mother adores her child, were looking listlessly through windows or peering J from half-open doors at the sad scenes anil dejected countenances ot a sorrowing peo ple as they hurried by, shielding them selves with umbrellas from the rain which was slowly falling all the morning. Later in the day the sun eanie out and thousands of people visited the ruins to take one last look, where, but a few hours before, stood their pride a monument j of mechanical skill ami the indomitable ; perseverance of one man. M r. Moore, the proprietor of the opera house, was met at the Kockwood house. He appeared quite cheerful and said lit had so much sympathy expressed for him i in his misfortune that he felt grateful,! while verv manv had PROFFERED MATERIAL AID IN REBUILDING. Keporter Will you rebuild the opera house, Mr. Moore? Moore Yes, sir; I will commence to morrow morning to clear away the debris K What was the cost of the opera house building? 31 It cost 622,000. K Was it insured? M Yes, for $12,000. Captain Harry Mitchell, the urbane landlord of the Kockwood house, was in terrogated as to the feeling about re building. "Oh, it must be rebuilt at once. I will j give $i00 myself to have it replaced. It was our pride. We doted upon it, and now it is of the past. The people here i should stand right up, and I know thev will, and help Moore to again complete the opera house. It was a great help to the town and we, as citizens, cannot atford to let an enterprising man like Moore sutler to any great extent, because he is THE LIKE OF THE PLACE." E. E. Kimball, insurance agent, was run down and found at his house, having just eaten his dinner. "It is a terrible calamity." said the urbane agent, "and the people will assist Moore if he desires it." Will J. Ivnott, Vditor of the Mail, said: "A public meeting will probablv be UU!lUT ""T upon ,, , , : c 4t i . mat 100KS to me eariy completion oi me ' opera house. I am somewhat of a stranger '. here, but these people mean business or 1 1 mistake their mettle." J. II. Tyler, hardware merchant of Ne vada, was met on the tram on his road home from St. Louis. He said Mr. Moore would be assisted, if necessary, to rebuild the opera house, but he is not the kind of a man who needs much help, he being one of THE KIND WHO HELP? HIMSELF, and he will have the universal sympathy of the community in the disaster which has overtaken his enterprise. W. K. Crocket, editor of the Democrat, was found on his road home from church, j when he was asked about rebuilding: "Well, I think the people will hold a meeting to-morrow and make Harry Moore whole and rebuild the opera house as i.'St as brick, mortar and men can be 1W A.'Jt- uj iAAr, ...

The tenants in the wooden buildings were the Western Union telegraph company, Pacifie express, Irons & Co., market, Jas. Festerinan, barber, and Wm. Peters, shoenaker. CAUSE OF THE FIRE. There is a difference of opinion as to the origin of the fire. In the rear f the opera house was sev eral barrels of oil belonging to Miller Bros., grocers. There was a board fence between the ii and a tenement house, occupied by several families of negroes. Some say the fire originated in the tenement house, while others say it was first seen among the oil barrels. The real trnth as t where it started will probably never be knewn. The report that the Kella Golden com pany lost a portion of their wardrobe was erroneous. All they lost was about $25 worth ol cheap scenery, which will not dis commode them in the least in their ap pearance at Clinton to-night. IN THETOILS. Johnnie Brockschmidt and Pals in Jail at Clinton Several Charges Against Them The Uazoo has given an account of the burglaries which occurred at Clinton some two weeks ago. which culminated in the arrest of Johnnie Brockschmidt, son of the Third street saloon keeper and doctor, and a young man well-known in this city, and a couple of his pals, whose names could not be learned. These parties were incarcerated in the jail at Clinton and yesterday was the day set for their preliminary trial, but owing to the absence of material witnesses, the trial was postponed until to-morrow. The father of Johnny went up to see him out of the scrape, taking Capt. L. L. Bridges along as his attorney-To-day, Dr. Bockschmidt was seen by a Bazoo reporter, to whom the doctor said that there was no evidence against his son ; that he was only held on suspicion, having been found in company with the other two young men, against whom there is very strong evidence. Officer DeLong also went to Clinton, yesterday, to see if he could, in connection with Mr. Kahrs, identify the men as the parties who forced Mr. Kahrs, at the end of a pistol, to open his safe and deliver up his money, iome two months ago. The identification was not made. County Court. The proceedings in this court, to-day, were as follows: A warrant was ordered drawn in favor of J. K. Stewart for $20.50. R. T.

SEARCHING FOR SARAH. A Cooper County Farmer in Se dalia Looking for His Better Half. She Eloped With a Peripa tetic Book Agent, Leaving Her Children Behind. A Canvass of the City Shows that She Was Here and Left at 10:30 Last Night. When train No. 3 arrived from the east this morning it had as a passenger a Cooper county farmer named Henry Thirk ield, whose home is some three miles ej'st of Tipton. When he alighted at the Garrison '"house, he met Officer Canity and after assuring himself that the gen tleman was one of the city's guardians, re lated a story that caused the officer to sympathize with and o!fr him all the as sistance in his power. He stated that he wss married nearly three years ago to Miss Sarah Winters, "a resident ot Cooper county, whose father owns a large farm between Tipton and Boon vi He. Ill KIR WEDDED LIKE, up to a few weeks ago, was all that could have been desired, and two children, a girl and a boy. had blessed their union. Thirkield owns considerable land in Moniteau and Cooper counties, and is also an extensive cattle dealer. He is a man twenty-eight years of age, while his wife is but twenty-two, and both handsome and accomplished. About six months ago a book agent, named Geo. Flanders, made his appear ance at the home of Mr. Thirkeild, and desired to remain over night. The re quest was granted, and the stranger was made to feel at home. This was Wedne day, and on Thursday morning he arose, partook of breakfast, and asked the amount of his bill. Mr. Thirkield had taken quite a liking to Flanders, and told him there was no charge, whereupon the agent returned thanks and TOOK HIS DEPARTURE. That was the last seen of him until Sat urday of the following week, when Flanders again appeared and said he would like to remain over Sunday, and of course he was cared for, and most agree ably entertained by Mrs Thirkield and her husband Monday morning he again started on his travels, saying he was going to Moni teau county, but would probably return and say farewell to his newly found friends ere he left that sec tion of countrv. And he was as good i as his word, for he made three different visits, the last one being Sunday last. i He was always received cordially by the husband, and subsequent facts have devel- I oped that the wife was only too ghld to entertain him. J Yesterday Mr. Thirkield had business at California, and left his wife and children at home, saying he would return in the iovening. No sooner had he taken his de parture than THE UNFAITHFUL WIFE was met by Flanders, according, it is now thousrht. to previous arrangements, and the - - o j - two decided upon an elojement. Hastily werejall the arrangements consummated and when the west-bound train arrived at Tip ton, yesterday afternoon, Flanders and Mrs. thirkield were at the depot ready to take passage for Sedalia Her two children she left with a neighbor, saying she was going to town and would return in the evening. She had, however, secured all of her valuables, together with some $200 in money, and it is certain had no intention of seeing her husband or littles ones agair. When Thirkield returned home, about dusk last evening, he was greatly surpris ed to find HIS UASTJJ! DESERTED, and of course he became greatly alarmed. The first place at which he called was the neighbor's where the children had been left, and there he learned that his wife had gone to Tipton in company with Flanders. Instantly the truth Hashed upon him, but he determined to convince himself before proceeding hastily, so returned home anil found that the frail woman had taken all her valuables and cash. This was all the proof he desired, and he at once com menced making arrangements for follow ing the guilty couple. He left the chil dren with his neighbor, and late last night visited Tipton, where he ascertained that HIS WIFE AND FLANDERS had taken passage on the west-bound train yesterday afternoon. As they did not purchase tickets, he could but surmise as to their destination, so concluded to come to Sedalia and see if he could learn anything regarding them. Such was, in brief, the story Thirkield related to Carnes, and solicited his assist ance. Together they visited all the hotel, but no trace of them could be found.

He spent the time here until 10:30 o'clock this morning, when he boarded the east-bound Pacific train and returned home. In conversation with a Bazoo reporter, he stated that he would take to-nigh. s train for St. Louis, where he would en deavor to apprehend the couple.
