6 CRUELLY CRUSHED. The Sad Fate of Two Men in the Pacific Yards Last Night. Joseph Hyatt, the Builder and D. Stanton, a Car penter, the Victims. JEyatt Lost his Left Lea: and Stan ton, who was Hoiribly Mu tilated, his Life. One of those unfortunate and terrible accidents which are inseparable from the operation of a railroad, and for which no oecan he blamed, by which one man lost Jris life and another his leg, occurred in ike Missouri Pacific yards at about half past 8 o'clock last night. Joseph Hyatt, the contractor and buil der, who has a shop on Second street, and resides in the extreme eastern aartion of the city, ac companied by his eleven year old son, Charlie, and one of his cirpenters, David Stanton, were walking along the new pas senger track of the Missouri Pacific, on "their way to Hyatt's house, Stanton board lag with his employer. When at a point about two hundred yards east of the train dispatcher's office it being very dark and misty, the unfortunate men, who were -walking abreast on the track, had no inti amation that a train was bearing down upon them until they heard the shrill cry of the boy Charlie, who Was walking a lew feet in their rear. The oj had jumped clear off the track, but ike two men were struck simultaneously and went down -under the freight car. Hyatt had the presence of mind to grab fetid of the axle of the truck, and by so do ing escaped death. Stanton went under the wheels, and both legs between the thigh and knee were cut of!', as was his left arm above the elbow His left ear was also torn mut by the roots, and he suffered internal in juries. His body was then rolled off on the north side of the track. Hyatt clung to the axle of the truck un til his left leg was caught and run over by the truck wheels, when he too was thrown ever on the north side of the track, sus taining additional injuries on the left side. The wild screams of the boy first at tracted the attention of the engineer of the switch engine which was pushing the cars, cne of which ran over the man, and then that peculiar gr ting tieinor of the cars was detected which denotes that flesh and bones were being crushed was felt. Tne engineer, Mr. Blake, reversed his engine at once, bringing the cars to a standstill be fore running farther than the length of a car, and the trainmen hurried to the suc cor of the injured men, both of whom were lying in the mud some feet from the track, hut some thirty feet apart. Hyatt, whose house was only about a block distant, was carried to his home, and fitanton, whom it was evident at a glance was doomed to die. was carried to the hos pital. Stanton laid in great agony until half past 11, when death came to his relief. A little before 12 o'clock a Bazoo re porter called on Mr. Hyatt, at his house, and found him resting, comparatively speaking, easy. Mrs. Hyatt raised the abeet with which he was covered, revealing a ghastly wound, just such an one as the car wheel only can inflict, in the right leg, between the knee and ankle. The doctor, la making hit examination of the wound, Bad already taken out a handful of splin tered bones. The injured man was expect ing another visit from the doctor and Mistaking the reporter for the doctor, be ;an to beg that his leg should not be cut off. When informed of the reporter's mis ion he gave the particulars of the accident as given above. He said that he and Stanton had been at work all day and were going home to supper, each carrying some Marketing. Hyatt has lived here about eleven years, .and has a wife and five children. Stanton came here a little over a year ago from Brownsville, but was originally from Farm land, Ind., where he has a wife and tour children. He was about forty Tears of as. His family were ad vised by telegraph last night of his death. As the reporter was leaving Hyatt's aeuse, he met Dr. Allen, the hospital sur geon, Superintendent Wesson, and a couple of attendants, the object of their call being to amputate Hyatt's crushed leg. Indulgent parents who allow their children to eat heartily of high-seasoned food, rich pies, cake, &c., will have to use Bop Bitters to prevent indigestion, sleep less nights, sickness, pain, and, perhaps, death. No family is safe without them in the house. The Fruit Crop. Mr. Richard Laube, proprietor of the Main street wine cellar and manufacturer of pider, keeps himself thoroughly pos'ed as to the frospects of the fruit crop, and having card conflicting statements concerning the probabilities for the coming season, a Bazoo reporter called on him yesterday to learn the result of his investigations. He stated that the peach crop would le Tery short in this county probably not over a quarter of the usual yield, the germs having been killed by the severe winter. Fall apples will give an average Yield, and winter apples will fall short of an average, probably one-fourth. Other fruits promise well. Presses, cloaks, coats, stockings and all garments can be colored successfully with the Diamond Dyes. Fashionable col ors only 10c, A Miesourictn in Kansas. Yesterday's Bazoo referred to a rumor, current on the streets, to the effect that Mr. James Glass, Jr., traveling salesman for his father's wholesale liquoi house, this city, was under arrest at Chetopa, Kansas, for a violation of the liquor laws of that fanatical state. The rumor was confirmed ty a telegram received by the lather of the young man, yesterday, and Mr. Glass, Sr., immediately look steps towards furnish ing bond for his son's release. It appears that young Glass was arrested on a technicality. He sold several bills for liquor by sample, and was in the act of leaving Chetopa. when the authorities, ap perentiy with the intention of making a test case of such sales, arrested him. In Kansas they ilways select a Missourian as a martyr, and Mr. Glass will probably be put to the expense of carrying this case up to the United States supreme court, where it will undoubtedly be declared unconstitu tional. An Incident of the Ball. Tobe Goodman met with a sad accident at the Fireman's banquet, which completely ruined the elegant new suit he had just purchased for the occasion. He had de voured all within reach of his enormously lengthy arms, which did no satisfy the cravings of his stomach, which had been doing the Dr. Tanner act for some time oreuarinz tor the banauet. The waiter who was standing behind him watching the disappearance of the cake, fruits, &c, with astonishment, in her hurry to give him more, let the server fall, discharging the contents, consisting principally of des sert, over him, so tint when he arose and took a survey of himself he found that he looked as though a pill poster had given him a coat of paste preparatory to hanging a poster. Bis hair, coat and pants were covered with floating island and ice cream. He was somewhat mol lified, however, by the proprietor of the house agreeing to indemnify him for all damage done. CHAPMAN'S 1 CUNNING. He Sends a Delegation of Wid ows and Orphans to This City, But He Will Find Them All Bight Side Up in Windsor This Morning. A forlorn-looking delegation, consisting of three women and four children, all scantily attired and living light so far as baggage was concerned, arrived in this ciiy yesterday morning, by the K. & T. train from the south. Their first act after arriv ing in the ladies' waiting room of the dt pot was to appoint a comuiittte to wait on Mayor Misserly and inform him officially of their presence in our midst and that they had come to stay and help deplete the charity fund and supplies. The commit tee further stated that the delegation hailed from the neighboring town of Windsor, where they had been guests of that munici pality, and that they were furnished With transportation to Sedalia by a lawyer of Windsor, named Chapman. Tiiere was not so much as a nickel in the whole del egation. Mayor Messserly saw through Mr. Chap man's scheme at once, as it lacks the merit of originality, having been practiced for years by the small towns surrounding us Windsor found it an expens ve luxury supporting the thr.e women who claim to be widows, and their four children, and concluded to ship the whole cabcodle lo.Se dalia, so tickets were purchased, and they were placed on board the cars, arriving here as stated. As the mayor contemplated the heart lessness and meanness of the act, he waxed wroth at the perpetrators of the outrage, but treated the women kindly, ordering that dinner and supper be furnished tht-m. Then he indited a letter to Mr. Chapman, the consignor of the delegation, giving him a short lecture on common decency, and informing him that his distinguished guests would be returned to him by first irain, and to love and cherish them, and never attempt to palm them off on Sedalia again, as we have a plenty of our own poor to look after and provide for. When the women were informed that they would be sent back to Windsor by the first train, they demurred, saying they would as soon be tent to jail as to have to return. They had tried Windsor hospital ity, and found it wanting, and would prefer trying some other locality. But it was all of no avail, as tickets were purchased and they were plnced on the cars by officer Kelly, who wished them a God-speed, last night The names of the women were Mrs. Wood, Mrs. Carrie Jennings and Mrs. Caroline Thompson. Three of the chil dren are those of Mrs. Wood. Now a word to Mr. Chapman and the authorities of Windsor : When you find yeu are unable to take care of your pau pers, send them to the county poor-farm, not to Sedalia, where they have no claims upon U6. If jou send them here they fill be returned, and it will only be a question as to which place can raise the most money to pay railroad fare. Sedalia takes rare of her own poor, and it is all she can do, and it is all she should be expected to do. Es tablish a Working Woman's Heme and that will help you out some, but don't cast your poor out on the cold charity of the world.

The grim reaper, Death, who is always an unwelcome visitor, has invaded another household of this city, robbing it of its jewel, and leaving tears and sorrow behind. The victim on this occasion is Mrs. E. W. Stevens, a most estimable lady, who died at the family residence, on West Second street, at ten minutes past eleven last night, after an illness of only a few days, aged thirty-eight years Her death was caused by the ills which sometimes attend child birth, aud will not succumb to medical skill Or gentle nursing. Deceased was born in Fredericksburg, Va., her maiden name being Ella Ran dolph. She was a lady of fine appearance and excellent physique, and was blessed with unusually good health up to the time of her sickness, last Friday, when she presented her husband with a beautiful girl babe, which survives her. Her sufferings during her last hours were intense and pitiful She leaves four children, a boy and three girls, the oldest of whom is about 14 years of age, and a husband, all of whom fairly idolized her. She was a member and regular attendant of the O. S. Presbyterian church. The hour for the funeral has not yet been determined, but due notice of the same will be given by the Bazoo. THE BEV. GEO. H.

One of the Most Remarkale Pe titirns for Divorce Ever Filed in Our Courts. A petition for divorce has been filed within the pist few days in the Pettis Cir cuit court by Col W. W. ri Snoddy, in be half of Mrs. Frederika Hess, who asks that the bonds of matrimonv be dissolved be- tw en her and her husband, Adam Hess. No especial attention would have been p:nd this case ov tne isaz'K), as uivorce cases have become alarmingly common of late. were it n t for the remarkable phraseology oi the petition, into which the attorney seems to have labored to inject a stump speech, which wilt be iound below. After setting forth the fact that plain- tin was married o at-iennani in at. .Louis. in May, 1867. and that plaintiff discharged her full duties as a wife: that defendant habitually used profane and obscene lan guage to the plaintiff, and mal treated her by choking her without the follows which slightest provocation, then M a a. the peculiar feature referred to, unless the writer mi-ses his mess. will be "sat down" upon by Judge Strother, when it is read in his presence on the bench : "Plaintiff submitted and bore all with christian fortitude,hoping and trusting that her amiable and consistent conduct towards him would soften and neutralize his rough and barbarous nature and having full con fidence in the words of the holy text, which lays uown tne maxim, inai "a soil answer turneth away wr; th ; she about the 15th day of January, 1883. became fully con vinced that her course toward the defendant and her strict adherence to the scriptural maxim, tailed to produce the promised effect, when she left defendant, still retain ing her abiling faith in the inspired words. believing the sacred writer did not have the anamolous nature of the defendant in his mind, when he peuned the beautiful sentiment" The jyetition then goes on to recite that defendant owns property in Srdalia, where he lives, worth $2,500, and asks that judg ment be awarded plaintiff for her support. TAIL END COLLISION. The Second Section of No. 23 Kan Into the First Section Yes terday Afternoon. Two sections of freight train No west bound, h-ft Sedalia alout 2 oclock yester day afternoon, the first section being in charge of Conductor Mosher, aud the second in charge of Conductor Law. Sev eral minutes intervened between the de parture of the trains, and everything went well until Brushy bridge, two miles west of Sedalia, was reached, when two cars and the caboose of first 23 became detached from the front end, on account of a defec tive coupling pin. The second section, running al the rate of about twelve miles an hour, was close upon the caboose of the first section before Engingetr Ham and Fireman Kyan dis covered that a break had occurred, and al though everything possible W3S done to prevent a collision, it proved futile and engine No. 819. a large Consolidator, went crashing into c h..ose No. 44. Seeing their danger, Engineer Ham and Fireman Ryan jumped before the shock came, and the former escaped unhurt. The latter was not so fortunate, however, as his collar bone was broken by striking the em bankment. The caboose contained several pawen gere, all of wom were badly frightened, but none of them were hurt. Engine No. 819 had its front caved in, and smoke stack and headlight demolished, partially, but the damage can be repaired with a very small outlay The caboose was considerably store up, as was the box car just ahead, but the lat ter remained on the rails, while the former was only partially derailed. Word was immediately sent to the gen eral office here, and in a brief period Train master Merrifield, and Master Car Builder Barber had out the wrecking train and were going to the scene of wreck with a large force of men. It was about 4 o'clock when they reached the spot, and forty-five minutes later the track was cleared, and the west bound passenger train, which had been detained at the Garrison house, pulled cut for Kansas City. Of course no blame attached to the crew of first 23, but it is said the accident would not have occurred tad the second section been at a proper distance in the rear. The Bazoo does not speak by the card, but it is quite probable that some one will be granted a furlough on account of the wreck.

Gone to Join the Missionaries. Mrs. A. M. Drennon, of Otterville, Coop er county, pasted through Sedalia Monday, on her way to San Francisco, Cal., from which point she will sail for Yokohoma, it being her intention to devote the remain der of her life to m ssion work in Japan. Mr. Drennon is the widow of Rev. J. A. Drennon, a minister in the Cumberland Presbyterian church, and well known in Missouri. Since her husband's death Mrs. Drennon has Wen teaching a young ladies' school at McMinnsviile, Tenn , but having conceived a desire to engage in mission work, she left the school tome time since and arrangements were made by which she goes to Osaka, Japan, under the auspices of the woman's board of foreign missions of the Cumb-rlaud Presbyterian church. Her long journey will be made alone, and a she takei a last farewell of her native land, expecting never to return to Amer ica, the journey could not help being a sorrowful one were l not for the self-forgetful motive which inspires the sacrifice. She will not go among entire strangers, however, two young lady friends, Miss Alice Orr and Mis Julia Leavitt, being in the schools at Osaka, having gone there from this country two years ago.

Gentry, who was Thought to be Dead, in Sedalia. Something like a year ago information reached Sedalia that Chester K. Gentry, at one time chiet cleric lor superintendent Warder Cumming, and afterwards em ployed in other branches of the railway service, had died at a hospital in Philadel phia, but the particulars were not fur nished. The press of the city made mention of the supposed death, and there were many who spoke a kind word to the memory of the man who was thought to be under the sod. Fnm that dav until vesterday Mr. Gen try's manv friends in Sedalia surmised that hip spirt had taken its fli Jit upward, and when the train arrived from the south, yes terday forenoon, and Mr. Gentry appeared in flesh, there was not a little surprise ex pressed. " I am a lively corpse, ain't I ? " was the interrogation propounded by the affable Ches, and thjse who greeted him were bound to admit that he was. For some msnlhs p:st Mr. Gentry has been holding forth at Carey's ferry, in the Cherokee Nation, where he is engaged in the general merchandise business with a gentleman named Col. Bell. When asked how the rumor of his death arose Mr. Gentry, said he had no idea. He did not know he had been published as dead until he reached Sedalia, and found his former friends dubious about shaking hands with him, they probably thinking his ghost had appeared upon the scese. There was, however, a man named C. K. Gentry killed on the Iron Mountain road some months ago, and Ches. said a number of people had reached the conclusion it was he. "You can say for me," said Mr. G., "that I am the livliest corpse you ever gaz ed on. I am going through to St. Louis this morning, and on my return will stop off and see my old friends."

It is my painful duty to announce to the officers and employes of this department the death of Hon. Timothy O. Howe, which occurred at Kenosha, Wis., on the 25 th iast., about 2 p. m. By his death the department loses a chief of eminent ability, whose su perior fitness for the important position was recognized by every subordinate with whom he came in contact. T. O. Howe was a man with whom and under whom it was a pleasure as well as an honor to serve. By his death the couutry loses an able and honest statesman, whose private life was spotless and whose public career was marked by clear judgment, faithful service, justice to all aad an ability which com manded the admiration of his fellor-men. The loss of such a man is the country's loss. In obedience to an executive order, the flags of this department will' be dis played at half mast for thirty days. The department will be closed the 28th inst., the day appointed for the funeral. As a further mark of respect it is hereby ordered that the department be draped in mourning for a period of thirty days.

The town of Osborne, on the Hannibal & St. Joseph railroad, between St. Joe and Cameron, has a new postmaster, and it seems to have been quite a surprise all round. The postmaster's name is Newon Mile and the retiring one Philo M. Hatch Mr. Hatch has been known as quite a poli tician in his day, and thought himselt very shrewd, but this kind of work takes the wind out of his political sails. Saturday morning, Mr. Hatch handed a suspiciously large official envelope out of the deliveiy window to Mr. Miles, but he had no thought what it actually contained Mr. Miles took the letter to his drug store across the way, opened it and found there in a commission signed by the president of the United States, as postmaster of Os borne. He quietly jolded it up and walk- insr across to the postomce, laid the com mission before Mr. Hatch's startled gaze. and told him he guessed he would take charge of the office at once. The prelimi naries were settled, and then Mr. Hatch asked : " Well, what about our outfit of boxes, etc?" Oh, I don't care for them," said Mr. Miles, "I have an office already fitted up. I will just move the mail across to my drug store." This was more surprise, and Mr. Hatch could hardly believe his eves, when a short time afterward he went across to get his mail, he found a complete set of poet office counters and boxes set up and business in full progress. It seems that the applica tion had been quietly sent on, accepted, and a bond returned to be filled out. The document was signed by two of the wealth iest men in Osborne, and returned to Wash ington, when the commission was made out and forwarded. But few knew that any change was contemplated, or that it was so close at hand. Mr. Hatch has been prominent in poli tics in that section for a number of years. He was secretary of the republican con gressional committee of his district for two years, and is now chairman of the present congressianal committee of the new Eighth district. Mr. Miles is a republican, and has been for years, but has not mingled much in pot ties. He has a drug store in Osborne. being a member of the firm of Miles & Morse. OS'JEOLA. J. R.

Stukey, of Nevada, special agent of the Southwest Mutual Benefit Associa tion, of .Sedalia, was in town the first day of the week, looking after the interest of the association. A farmer crossing, the river at the Crow Island ford, got into the water too deep and floated his wagon bed off and the wagon becoming nncoupled, the hind wheels were lost. The Easter exercises of the Brick church Sunday evening was a yery pleas ant affair ; the children done well in the rendition of the parts assigned them and all deserve credit for the part they per ioral ed. The race for county school commis sioner has narrowed down to Thos. M. Johnson, editor of the Platonist. and John S. Smith, editor di the Voice. There are seven candidates in the field. Rev. E. J. Hout, who has been in charge of the M. E. church at this place for the past two years, left Tuesday for Marshal, where he will act as pastor for the coming ytar. Rev. Corkhill will have charge of the church at this place. Marshal Calvird ran in a bad man from Kansas about midnight Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning His honor saw him for six dollars' worth which his brother paid for him and at this writ ing is trying to make up for the time lost from midnight to daylight. The special election, ordered by the board of trustees for our town to vote upon the proposition to organize Osceola as a city of the fourth class, passed off quietly vesterday, with only two dissenting votes, the board will meet in ten days and divide the city into two. wards. We think the division will be Pine street, running east and west The voting place of the first ward will be Prof. Samuel's barber shop, and for the second ward, city hall. A War Belie. Yesterday Mr. Sam Rosee, who has charge of the rock quarry on Mr. J. R. Barrett's places in the northeastern suburbs of the city, while engaged in stripping the earth from a ledge of rock, found four feet from the surface on the rock, a twelve pound spheiical case bombshell, which wa3 probably lodged there in 1863, when Jeff Thompson shelled the city. The shell was undoubtedly projected from a guc located at a point near the cemetry, a distance of a mile and a half or two miles from where the shell was found buried four feet in the earth. There is no telling how much deeper it would have gone had it not encountered solid rock. FOR DYSPEPSIA and Liver Com plaint, you have a printed guarantee on every bottle of Shiloh's Vital izer.

PACKER'S PECULIARITIES A Bazoo Correspondent Takes Look at the Colorado Man-Eater. Laramie, Wyomimg, March 23, Editob Bazoo: The readers of the Bazoo of course have heard of Al Packer. the man-eating murderer; kow several years ago he killed five men and subsisted on their flesh for days. Well, I had the pleasure of meeting Mr . Packer here a few days since. Al. remained with, us one day and night, while we were procuring a requisition for him from the governor of Colorado. While here he was a guest of the county jail. I had long had an idea of how a cannibal looked and how he ate his desert, but never had any lriends or relatives who were of that religious belief. So here was my long wished for opportunity to stand face to face with a genuine, simon-pure, bona fi ie cannibal. Arming myse'f to the teeth I made ay way to the cell occupied by Packer. As Al. had had nothing to eat for a day or two, and looked ravenously hungry, I concluded it best not to be too familiar m short acquaintance, sq I did not embrace him. But I stood ready to embrace an opportunity to flee on short notice. Albert did not look to be a person who was in the habit of having a man for breakfast every morning, but I'm naturally a timid man and did not care to give him an opportunity to try his accomplishment on me. I object to be eaten raw and withoit aalt and paoper, but if I mutt sacrifice ay self to make a Roman holliday for one of those cannabalistic fiends, I want to be done brown, with oyster dressing. Packer acknowledged he killed one of his tve conapaniajw but said that he did it in aelf-defeoee. He says the other foer men were dead when he returned te camp that they were killed by the .Mas whom he slew. Packer also admitted that he absisted for several days on the flesh of these mur dered men ; and that just before resuming his jonrney he cut large slices from their bodies, which he cooked and took with him Had he not done this, he says, he would have certainly starved. Very Respectfully, Ed. Waxsk. A Lucky Merchant in Louisrilto, Yesteiday, Mr. Crittenden T. Collings, teller of the Second National bnk, who cdfected it, admitted that a well known and highly respected wholesale merchant on Mam street had been the lucky man, and that the money had been paid over to him, he having held one-fifth of ticket 57,012, the first capital prize of $75,000, in the February 13th drawing of the Louisi ana State Lottery, at New Orieane. The merchant prohibited Mr. Collings from al lowing the use of his name for publication, not desiring for reasons of his own to have any notoriety on the subject. Louisville (Ky.)
