The Sweet Springs fair association made a great mistake in not asking com petition in the article of cyclones to be competed for at their fair this coming fall. The members of the Sedalia Gun club were practicing at the park yesterday af ternoon, preparatory to engaging in the state contest, which is to take place here in June. The bouquet that wai displayed in Moee & Van Wagner's window, yester day, was bought by Lon Van Wagner from a negro, and not presented to Babe Mills by his girl, as he stated. Ties are being distributed along the south side of the Pacific general office and freight depot, preparatory to putting down the passenger track and new depot, on the site of the old pond. The Missouri Pacific porters, as they appeared in their new suits of velveteens, with white caps, yesterday, loomed up im mense, laying the conductor in the shade. And the coons were periectly happy, too. There was but one case before the cir cuit court yesterday, that of H. G. Smith vs. John D. Lane. The suit was for dam ages, but the jury fooled the plaintiff by slapping fifty dollars' damages on him in stead of the defendant.

Sedalia is clamoring lustily for the privilege of being made the capital of Mis souri. That city is geographically the proper place for it, and we think, if it were pnt to a vote of the people, they would pronounce for Sedalia two to one. Butler Republican. ? Frank Riley, the young man who was tried at the last term of the criminal court, in this city, for playing the change racket, and escaped conviction, has been arrested at Carthage and bound over to the grand jury for the same game. The penitentiary yawns for this fly galoot. Peter Cokely, the colored man who killed a negro boy named Rob Stanford, about eighteen months ago, and who ' was sentenced to two vears'imprisonment in the penitentiary, arrived here Friday after noon, having been pardoned by Gov. Crit tenden on account of being very low with consumption. A Rapid Run. There is one bald-headed conductor on the Missouri Pacific to-day, and he says it's all on account of the rapid run he made Thursday afternoon. His name is Jim King, one of the oldest men in the company's employ. He left here at 125 p. ni., with the delayed train from the south, and the run to St. Louis, a distance of 189 miles, was made in four hours and fifty five minutes, with several stops. To Chamois, eighty-nine miles, the run was made in two hours and seven minutes. Johnny Hamilton stood at the throttle of engine No. 253. Interesting to every one is the case lately referred to by the Brooklyn Eagle. It was told bv Mr. W. A.

Among those contributing articles ior the work are Mac Demuth, city history ; F. A. Sampson, natural history of Pettis county ; Dr. Trader, the medical profes sion ; Revs. John Montgomery, John Letts, William Westlake, and others, on their respective church histories. The Sedalia history will be complete in itself and bound in a hand-book contain ing a business directory of the city, elec trotype views of many, prominent busi ness houses and model residences, all con stituting the best evidences possible why Sedalia, with its unequalled advantages, should become the capital city of Mis souri. A large edition of the hand-book will be issued, containing a history of the churches, lodges, schools, railroads, man ufactories, city government, public enter prises, business directory, resources and developments. A number of new cuts of business blocks and elegant homes have already been ordered and it is hoped the people generally will encourage this enterprise. An Brought April Shower that May Flowers. On Tuesday, April 11th, the 143d Grand Monthly distribution of the of the Louis iana state lottery occurred as it always does on the day fixed. Generals G. T. Beauregard of La., and J ubal Early, of Va., had as usual the sole supervision. The amount scattered was $110,400 next time it will be over half a million of dol lars. The first capital was sold in halves (costing each only one dollar) and was drawn by ticket No. 78,637 one half to Louis Sauser. a well-known jeweler, at No. 223 Calhoun "street, Fort Wayne, Ind. ; the other by W.

Winter wooings have not led to many spring winnings. Ex. The trouble was the old folks went to bed too early and trusted the young folks too much. There was a good many "in nings" but no "winnings." Some time ago the Bazoo announced that Clint Stone, son of Mrs. E. A. Stone, of Warsaw, had been allowed $100 per month by his mother, providing he would leave her home at Warsaw and agree not to return. This action on her part was made neces sary because young Stone was unable to live amicably with Mr. J. E. Hall, who is Mrs. Stone's partner in the banking busi ness. The proposition was agreed to by Clint, and in company with his wife, he removed" to Clinton, where he haB been living a dis sipated career since. A few days ago he wrote and informed his mother that it was impossible for him to live on $100 per mouth, and unless she increased the allowance he would return to Warsaw and kill Hail Thisjthe indulgent mother declined to do, etui fu a iiuaj vuiii jl 1 11 W uincu di Warsaw, accompanied by his boon com panion, Will Wright. First, Sione an nounced tli at he had driven across the county and was on a fishing excursion ; later he said he had come for the purpose of taking his brother Johnny, aged about thirteen years, from under Hall's in fluence, and, in case any objection was offered, there would be trouble. Prior to leaving arsaw, it was charged that Stone had meliciously killed and wounded some hogs leloiiging to a farmer of that neighborhood, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. As long as he remained away there didn't seem to be any inclination to prosecute him, but when he returned, the warrant was given to the marshal to serve, and Stone was arrested and placed under a $100 bond. For a time it looked as though he would have to go to jail, as his mother, by the ail vice of friends, refused to become his suretv. At the last moment, however, a saloon keeper named Smith went to the rescue and the young man was released. He then proceeded to lay his plans for getting his brother Johnny in his charge, and said he would ac complish his object yesterday. Realising that trouble would undoubtedly ensue, Mr. Hall and Mrs. Stone held a consultation, and it was decided that Johnny should be placed outside of his brother Clint's reach. Accordingly, on yesterday morning, Mr. Hall arrived in Sedalia, with Johnny in charge, and took passage on the east-bound Missouri Pacific train for St. Louis, from which city they will proceed to New Eng land, where the lad will be placed in school for a term of years, thus preventing his being thrown in contact with his broth er Clint, who is undoubtedly fast losing what few friends he now has.

Most usually I suffered from consti pation, and at other times a severe run-ning-otrat the bowels would set in. No remedy I ever tried would regulate this function until I tried Brown's Iron Bit ters. It really benefitted me from the first day I used it. My habits are now perfectly regular, and as a slrengthener of the digestive organs, I think Brown's Iron Bitters worth its weight in diamonds." BvfisslBBaBBBBBBBKiBBBw j That the Bazoo is not usually boastful, it thousands of readers will bear witness, and iu consequence a few words of self- i praise at the time will not be considered 1 inappropriate. i That we are proud to-day, there is no use of denying; but, then, why should it not be so? What paper or job printing establishment in Missouri has a better j right to crow and lustily, too. As has been announced through the . agency of the Associated Press, a beautiful and costly gold medal was awarded the ; Bazoo steam printing house, by j the Missouri Press Association, at I their meeting held - in St. Joseph on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. This medal, hearing the monogram, M. P. A., is in the form of a shield, of solid gold, on the reverse side of which is a beautiful wreath. A printer's gold stick forms a pin, which can be worn as an orna I ment or not, just as pride or want of it , may dictate. f This medal was presented to the as isociation by Snider & Holmes, the wholesale paper dealers, of St. Louis, i and was for the purpose of showing their appreciation of first-class job printing. ', The Bazoo does not intend to crow very lustily over this victory, for it is getting f used to such "scoops," but it may be par doned for saying that for complete and perfect ability to turn out A No. 1 job work, it is excelled by none and equalled by few in the state. Whatever is sent from this office is of the highest style of the art.

Editor Bazoo: In your issue of April 30th, I noticed an article rellecting on the conduct and character of Prof Helmrich. I have known the professor for a number of years past (he having resided with my family), during which time he has always conducted himself as a gentleman, and has made a host of friends by his genial and courteous manners. The article in question was probably gotten up by some person misinformed, or by one who bears the professor some mal ice, and takes this sneaking mode of re venge. By giving this space in vour next Sunday's edition, you will greatly oblige, etc. John H. Anderson. Denver, Colorado, May 9, 1882.

A young man residing at Green Ridge has called at the office of Recorder Conner on several occasions, of late, for the pur pose of procuring a marriage license, his affianced being the daughter of a farmer in that neighborhood. He made another visit yesterday, but Mr. Conner refused to comply with the request, as he was not positive that the young lady was of age, and he knew that her parents were opposed to the match. The would-be groom does not seem discouraged, however, but says he will persevere until success crowns his efforts. THE REV. GEO. H.

"While I was in Topeka, last winter," said the Hon. Arthur Edgington, "I had a pretty rough time of it, I got a bad cold, and then that not being sufficiently severe, I was also attacked by rheumatism. The pain was in my left shoulder. At times I almost writhed in agony. I tell you sir, the pain could not have been greater had my shoulder been screwed up in a vise. I was utterly helpless, and felt like I was destined to remain in that condition indefinitely. My friends an a physician were generous in their prescriptions and my room soon be- came a miniature spoinecary snop. Jtuit nothing ma me any goon, une aav some one told me I was enduring a great deal of needless pain when I could invest fifty cents in a bottle of St Jacobs Oil and be cured. I invested in a bottle of the Oil, rubbed it on my shoulder twice, and in two days forgot that I ever had rheuma tism. Yes, that is a great remedy, and no mistake. They can't say too much in favor of its healing power." The above was uttered bv Mr Edging- ton while sitting in the porch of the La Gonda house, at Columbus, the other even ing, and was overheard by an escaped reporter, who is traveling over the countrv incofir. Inquiry developed the fact that Mr. Edgington is one of the most widelv known men iu Kansas, figuring prominently in politics, and acting as the responsible agent of the B roads tree t Com- mercial agency. Upon subsequently mak ing Mr. lodging ton's acquaintance, the re- porter was assured that all he had heard I was true, and he was at liberty to use it in i proficiency acquired by the members dur ing that time has been due, in a great measure, to the exertions put forth by the worth v teacher. This fact was recognized by all, and they determined upon present I ing him with a small testimonial of their regard, ljast nigni was ine time selected, and at half-past seven o'clock, immediate ly before proceed iug to the park, Mr. John Scheer took the floor and asked for order He commenced by saying that he was no speech maker, but the work before him did not require oratory. He paid a glow ing tribute to Prof. Freimel as a teacher and a gentleman, which fact, he said, was recognized by all his associates. From an inner coat pocket he then pro duced a beautiful ebony baton, silver mounted, which he presented to the profes sor, on behalf of the members. Mr. Freimel accepted the gift, and was about to reply, when Mr. ekiheer inter posed with, "Hold on ; I'm not through yet," and at the same time produced a gold-headed cane, bearing the following inscription: "Presented to Leopold Freimel, May 13, 1882." This he also handed the professor and asked that he accept. To say that Mr. Freimel was surprised, would be putting it mildly. He had not had even an inkling of what was going on, but was equal to the emergency, and re turned hearty thanks, promising to reply in a more fitting manner at another time. The entire party then congratulated the professor.and they proceeded to the park to delight those who would there assemble to while away the time on skates. The presents were beautiful, and the Bazoo has no hesitation in saying that they were worthily bestowed. SHILOH'S CURE WILL immediately relieve Croup, Whooping couh and Bron chitis. For sale by all druggists. Friday night witnessed a gathering of the elite, beauty, wealth and culture of Sedalia, to hear the rendition of the can tata of Ruth, by the Lafayette Park Choral Union, of St. Louis. The hall was packed and the galleries held as many as could be comfortably seated No such audience has graced any enter tainment this season as was this, and no such rare treat has been presented for many a day in Sedalia as the cantata proved. Thl author of the production is Mr. Eben A. Andrews, attorney for the Mis souri Pacific, who was present, and niot skillfully anil artistically directed the ren dition Promptly at the appointed boor, Mr. Andrews took his place in front of the stage, and, waving his baton, opened the exercises by an exquisite instrumental prologue by the splendid orchestra. At a tap of the "bell, the curtain slowly rose, and there was presented to the audience a large group of ladies and gentlemen, dreivsed in oriental costumes. Criticisms had Inren made that this can tata would have the same fault that other similar predictions possess a tediousne and slowness, whieh make them lack .i power to attract and hold -ttention close ly. But the author of "Ruth" most hap pily escaped this fault, and has given a production which is sprightly and spark ling, while there is enough of tHatelines about it to impress the hearer with th beautv of the storv and the mournful de votion of hearts bowed with a great sor row Founded upon one of the mo touching and delicate revelations in all history of woman's love and constancy, the gifted author has presented acliarmin expression of it in "strains almost divine," WlliUll IIIUIC YlVIUljr puin.t vi-". vtiivi tractions of the story than does the cold re cital in prose. One oi the rare features of the eveniug was the instrumentation of the orchestra. Perfection marked every performer's ef fort, and the delight to the audience afford ed by them was well shown by the breath less "attitude of each listener Such plav ing is not often heard anywhere, and the laurels won Friday night were generoualy and heartily bestowed upon these splendid musicians. In the choral parts there was not a dis cord or a break. All were given with an exquisite grace and intense feeling which none but true artists can give. The choril singers were young society people of St. Louis, who make music a study and a de light. They were listened to with pleas ure and applauded with sincerity. But the character of Ruth, personated by Mrs. Reismeyer, a lady possessing a wonderfully rich soprano voice, was the gem oi me evening. inn jauv nut win sang with matchless grace and power, bn her conception of the character assumed was intensely captivating as it found ex pression in face and movement. As she sang her plea to Naomi, many a tear was started, many a cheek moistened in sym pathy for her. There was a pathos in her ! voice, an eloquence in her quivering lip?, a power in her expression, which enchained i her hearers and riveted the closest atten tion. When the songstress ceased, there was a moment of breathless suspense, ami then relief was found by the audience in rapturous applause. As Naomi, Mrs. Hardy revealed fine ar tistic training, her lovely alto ringing out like a silver beli .on balmy air. Fully ap preciating the character assumed, the lady was especially fortunate and happy in her parts, winning golden opinions froio audience. e It would have been a greater pleasure to have heard more of Miss Schuler's con tralto voice in solo than she was permitted to give in the character of Orpha, hut what little was thus heard gave un limited pleasure. (irand in physique, Mr. Poindexter, a Boaz, was grand in voice also. He seemed a veritable monarch, and his deep rich basso tones rolled like waves of thunder through the hall, reminding one of the lordly roar of some mighty, but majestic, cataract. And yet his enunciation was perfect, clear and easily caught. He makes a royal Boaz Mr. Maginniss is the possessor of a tenor voice which shoald be his pride. He had an ample opportunity to display it as the "Overseer," and without ostentation he gave full scope to its strength and range. He was warmly greeted by the audience. There was but one criticism to ba heard as the large audience left the opera house, and that was that the feast had ended loo soon, the enjoyment was too short-lived. With this exception, unstinted praise was upon all Iips,and on all sides was the wish expressed that these sweet singers would come again. May the wish be gratified very soon.
