Alarcn o. - l Uoonville nas nooinen more uns yearj ... i i i I than ever before. The tirst rock road stirred J onr people up and Saturday even i eg a mas meeting was held at the court house, at which various committees reported, and definite action was taken on the feasibility of constructing a rock road from this city, via Prairie Home, to the Moniteau county line. One of the latest enterprises in which Boonville is interested is the telephone exchange now being inaugurated in ow elty. Mr. M. Kiddle, of the Missouri & Kansas Telephone company, has put tip needful pole, wire, etc., has fined up a central office, and in a few days aH of our principal business h 0110 ac.d ihe resi dences of our leading ciiizens vill be con nected by telephone. So much for Boon ville's business enterprises. Socially, we are not quite so lively, this being Lent. But Saturday night the skating rink was the scene of one of the largest gatherings which ever assembled in Boonville Bril liantly lighted, it presented a queer yet mea-u.ed spectacle of gliosis and goblins of all sizs and shapes, all arrayed in the apparel supposed to belong only to spirits of another world. The occasion was a phantom party on roller skates given by the enterprising proprietors of our rink, Messrs. Scott & Wing. Boonyille's young folks never need a second invitation to en gage in anything that promises fun and enjoyment, and the "Phantom" was no ex ception to this general rule. AVhen your correspoadent arrived at 8 o'cloekjthe floor was well occupied by the ghosts, prominent am on r whom were two huge demons with skull and cross bones standing out omin ously in bold relief on their breasts. There were about fifty of tluse ghostly vidimus on skates, of whom the Ba'Ou presents a full list below One tall, grinning spectre, with a huge "stove-pipe" hat on, claimed to be the spirit of Napoleon Bonaparte, "doomed for a certain time t walk the night." etc.. and the fact that his whispeis were of a decid-dly American accent, to gether with that of Napoleon being aghot of statute, made his assertion extremely doubtlul. Many of the spectators were the recipients of considerable attention from the ghosts, who caressed them lovingly, a if glad to feel flesh and blood once 111 re. and the ease and grace and swifines of many of the phantoms made their likeness to the traditional ghosts very striking, and their being dre.-&ed almost exactly alike made the task of fixing their identitv well nigh impossible A large number of spec tators wt re present to wa'ch th skaters, among whom the Bazoo's correspondent noticed the following : Misses MayBlakey Tillie Werthemier, .Nannie liullett, Miuie Stephens, BettieStahl, .Sadie Howard,Kuth Johnson, Florence Scott, Ella Meredith, Mesdames V. R. Baker, J". McGlanahan, W. B. Hutch-son. Ed. Chilton, H. M. Thompson, C. H. Allen, Xoah Bell, Sallie Rogers, and numerous others.. Among the gentleman were: Mayor J. L. O'Bryan, Capt. Roobs, Speed Stephens. K. B. Bunce. G. W. Aston, W. R. Hutchison, C C. Gibson, Steve Stephens, Cook Portei , "W. R. Baker, J. T. McGlanahan, Mat twenty, Louis ! evens, and a host of others. The ghosts m were : Misses Mattie Hutchison Taylor Meight, Helen Miles. Hattie Mc Kenzie, Alma. Windsor, Emma Haynes, Lillian MucheJ,t. Mamie Hunt, Maggie Welch, Alice Wihon, Nannie "Weight, Addie Fdgir, Katie. Sp.nhr. Maegie Cop tr and Sallie Adams; Mssrs. J. M. Clark, D. "W. Shackleford. Jones Adams, E. IX Shackhford. Richard Blakey. E. C. Swap, Percy Harrison, "Will Welch, Walbr Scott, James Aken Homer Wooldridge, Will Wtl-on, II. L. IJonberger, J)ick Harrison. Will McPherson and Sam Johnson. About 9 o'clock the maskers removed their snowv apparel, and the surprise-of many who had failed to successfully gue-s who the ghost- were was great Our rink is situated in the lower (Armory) hall of the Thespian hall, on Main street, and is tne largest and best ar ranged of any iu Missouri, outcide of the large cities. It is well lighted and ex cellently ventilated, and is, iu all respects, a model rink After the ghosL had un masked, the floor was open to any. being before rcdxie-'ited totboe w'r-u ui.re masks A "large number toon advantage of Ibis opportunity and the rink was soon crowded with the merry skaters. At a late hour the bell of the proprietors announced that the fun at an end, and the company soon separated A band of music was in at tendance during the evening, which added, much to the pleasure of bc-dh skaters and spectators. But one mishap occurred. A cranky individual called Dr. Lee, "late of London," while somewhat under the in fluence of liquor, started to waitz the cir cuit of the room, but he could not preserve his equilibrium on the treacherous rollers, and after several comical falls, he fell heavily on his left arm, fracturing it bad ly. He was taken lo the office of Dr Mc Clanahan. who soon set the broken limb. 3fo ermanent injury will re-ult. This was the only "bad break" of the evening. There will be another skating carnival at the rink on Tuesdav, the 6th, and one on Wednesday, the 14th. The first is for young folks between lhe ages of ten and twenty, and the last for those of all ages, FROZEN FACTS. G. M.

Young Lady Properly ; Refuted, And a Running: Account of Hap penings in an Enterprising Bur;?. SjiefS-.tl Co:re?on'lent of tne Pazoo. Nevada, Mo., March 5, 1SS3. A few days ago an item appeared iu the Joplin Herald that rt 11 eels upou oue of our loveliest, fain st and most virtuous young ladies, and our citizens are very irate and very indignant over it. The following is the item referred to: 'A few nights ago a contest for a gold medal was engaged in at the skating rink at Nevada. Six ladies entered the arena, and the winner was to ba selected by balbd. During the contest one lady chanced to ull rather grace fuPy, however - in such a manner to lift the drapery from a pair of symmetrical pedal extremities. When the tellers came lo cast up the votes. ''legs" had the medal by a laive majority.7 A a matter of curse, the citizens cf Ne vada fe I verv indignant over this, us the wribr of the article could have bad no ob jtcl in view but to misrepresent the milter and cast a slur on ail who were present on lhe occasion referred to It is a tact that a skati'.tg ma ch took place in this citv uot '.oug since, iu which six la lies took part. It is a l"ac also, lh .t at leat three hun dre 1 pt opb wi re present to lear witn ss that the cont slants were all good anil gracvfnl skaters, aud that none f them lei , but they all acquire I themselves ..n.st nobly. Why the editor of the aforesaid paper should have inserted such a jrCitr rilniis aud disgraceful article, is more than we can understand. H;s object could uot have been otherwise than to do injustice to the young lady who wf.ii the medal and who is as pure as tttc sir of hcat'tn. It wc were to try to de scribe a cr.-ature th;t would, without cuuse tir provocation, wantonly assail and try to injure a young lady -of the highest p.s-ible standing in society, we would find tint the English language would be in&dcijuate to the task. There is no name mean enough, no name low enough to do him justice. He does nol desfrv to be t derate I iu a civilized community OTKS.

The Pantocaine by Which a Yotmjar Lawyer Won an Almost Hopeless Case. Coluitiim, tOhio) Times. The attorney, at the date of the story, was serving the commonwealth ot Ohio and the county of Vinton in the capacity of prosecuting attorney at the little town of McArthur. He then bore rather a youth ful and possibly somewhat verdant aptear ance for a man holding so responsible a position. The most conspicuous person age kuowu 10 the Vintou bar at that timej as a grave and pompous barrister from a 1 neighboring town a man who had reached the miduh age ol life, anil with it an ex tensive praelice, profitable alike in fame ami pecuniary gain ; a n an whose elo quence bent juries to his will, and whose logic pinned them fast; whose invective point d sarcasm blanched the cheek of the witness or the prisoner, as might be neces sary to gain the case, and was Al IKK DRKAIK1 AND ITATKU by his fellow practitioners. The attorney inferred to is living yet, one of the most pro ninent'jurists in Southern Ohio. His ability hs not diminished, nor has his knowledge that he possesses ability. One day the young prosecutor had a not cast to iry, and, to his consternation, he ler.rned t I1.1t the gentleman referred to had been retained by lhe d tense. The prosecutor j handled bis case with great care, but from the first did not hope to convict thopris-j oner. He was stirred up somewhat, how-'. ever, by the sneering allusions made to him during the examination, bv the im- r ported counsel, and so, wh-n he came to j make his opening seeeh. he indulged a little in bombast himself. He expected to be lorn up bv the iim.ortcd counsel, but 4 - was utterly unprepared for the simoon that ; swept through the court room when TJIK IMrOtlTEH rofNcKi. got fairly under way. He paced up and i down in front of the judge; he sawed the I air in iroiit of the jurors; h shook his linger in the face of the young prosecutor! aud shiveied in imaginary horror at the thought ot so youthful a youth undert-tklug to measure sw.-rds with him. The voice i was loud ::nd bitter iu its d nunciation ; t the gesticulations were violent and di- "... t. it moiibiraiive; tne manner :nr-aienini aud sit down with folded arms and awaited ! lhe verdict which he did not suppose they . d:md to refuse to render The voting prosecutor was mad fie felt that he, would like to thrash the imported counsel out t.f hi b lie trse to his feet, un- certain lor a moment what to do. ; A JIAITV TU0UOHT struck him. and throwing his head back, iie cast his left hand behind him aud thrust hi ri6ht hand in the breast of his vest, while un er over-arching eyebrows be scowled out at the jury. The jury "dropped on it" in an instant. So did lhe judge, so did the spectators There was the familiar pese of the imported counsel, per ett in its imitation. Then the young prosecutor began, and without opening his lipr, proceeded to copy the gesticulations aud movements of the euiiii'-nt attorney who had preceded him. He snorted and cavorted and stamped, and rolled his eyes. He strode up and down in front of 'ihe judge and jury, following in his gestiula tions precisely those of which they had just seen the copy. He SHOOK HIS FINGER MENACINGLY under the nose of the eminent geutltmau. and, assuming a statesman-like pose, looked down upon him disdainfully. Then he would stop and twirl on his finger a mar tingale ring, w Inch he had drawn from his pocket, and which was intended to repre sent the large seal ring on the small finger of the left hand of the opposing counsel. It was too much. The eminent attorney appealed to the court for protection, while j the judge laughed until the tears rolled i down his cheeks, and the jury and specta I tors chnckhd audiblv. The judge re- plied that the young man had done noth n$ tc hm' :uy 4? did 001 feel caJ,td upon to interfere with the argument.
