For some time past the Masonic frater nitv has beeD busily engaged in making preparations for the laying of the "corner stone of the new optra House, the upper floor of which is to be ustd by the craft for a hall. In accordance with previous anangemeuts the grand lodge of the state convened at Smith's Hall at 2 o'clock, a number of representative masous being present. Shortly after 2 o'clock St Omer Com- mandery No. 11, formed at masonic hall, and under the command of Sir Knight B. G. Wilkerson, and headed by the JSedalia Silver Cornet band, marched to Smith's Hall where the grand lodge of the state was in session. After the grand lodge had con eluded the business before it,a procession was formed, the Knights Templar acting as es cort. The procession, under the marshal ship of P. G. M. R. E Anderson was formed in the following order : Sedalia Silver Cornet band. Members of the grand lodge and resident Masons. Platoon of police. Knights Templar. Royal Arch Masons.

Grand Master Woods then inspected the work and pronounced it well done. The grand lodge then went through the cere mony of "grand honors' at the conclusion ot which the grana master pronounced & very appropriate congratulatory address. The orator of the day, Rev. H. G. Jack- son, u. was next- lniroaucea. xne sun was shedding its most genial beams, the grand officers of the lodge, the reporters and the masons, who were gathered on the platform where Dr. Jackson in re sponse to the announcement of the grand master and in his usually happy manner addressed his brother masons. He said that occasionally it was in the power of a man to exercise wisdom and prudence, and that it was his happy privilege to exercise those f . . r it i t junctions on mis occasion, ne wouia there fore refrain from making any extended speech and detaining the people in that heated atmosphere. Dr. Jackson, notwith standing his declaration that he would not make a speech could not forbear congrat ulating his brother masons in the progress made bv their noble order, and rjaid. in his uiual chaste andappropriate language, a j nign iriouie io me uuuuu bpiniea genue- i t x i ; ii man who made this occasion pos-ible. Kev. Dr. U J. YVooas, oi Kansas City, cises by a brief address in his happiest I vein.

After a few congratulatory remarks to the fraternity on the progress made by the order in Sedalia, the grand master declared the ceremonies at an end, and the pro cession was re-formed and marched to Smith's Hall, where the grand lode was adjourned for the session. THE BRAVE GENERAL. A Sermon by Allen J. Van Wajsr ner, at the Congregational Church, Sunday Morning:. The pastor of the Congregational church is giving a series of sermons on the Book of Joshua. The following L a condensed re- port of the third in the course: Under the leadership of Joshua the chil dren of Israel had crossed the Jordan, and camped at Giliral. five miles distant. The first thisg done was to build an altai of stones, which twelve priests had brough with them from the midst of the river Jor dan. This was to commemorate their de liverance from the rolling Hood, it was to remind them, and their descendants, of god's kindness and mercy i . in tne hour ot the r need, lhey then re vived the old ceremon:es of circumcision and the passover, which had been neg lected lor forty years. This performed, the mighty task of conquering the land of Canaan pressed upon them. It was densely populated, contained many large citie, defended by high walls and armed men Their foes were fr superior to them in numbers, wealth, wea pons of warfare, and were intrenched in walled cities. A leader of le&s faith and courage than Joshua would have been filled with despair. The first point to at tack was the city of Jericho. It was the key to the whole country. To capture it was necessary to success. It was but two miles away, beautiful for situation, strong ly fortified, and abundant in resources. Joshua left the camp and went near the city to PLAN A MODE OF ATTACK. While thus engaged, "Behold, there stood a man over against him with his bword drawn in his hand." Brave old Joshua quailed not, but advanced towards this actual, supernatural appearance (or appar ition, which seemed real to him) and said : "Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?" and the reply came. "Nay, but as the cap tain of the host of the Lord am I now come." Joshua then fell down and wor shiped this appearauce in the shape of a clad warrior. From Him he received instructions how to take the city, and these instructions be faithfully obeyed, and on the seventh day his army entered it in triumph. r-rom this history let us learn to remem ber our mercies, blessings and deliverances in the past. Ihe Israelites set up stones of memorial to keep forcibly in their minds, and their children's, the mercy and kinduess of God in delivering them from Jordan s hood. In this they are an example for us. How prone we are io FORGET PAST MERCIES AND BLESSINGS. j Past disappointments and &orr ws we i remember, but the blessings and mercies o years that are gone we seldom recall. 'Ihis is not right. We owe it to God to call up his gooduess in the past lo do b't wii keep a ive our faith in Him. It will greatly comfort and cheer us in the present. We ought not to let the pleasures and joys, the happy hours ana aays aie oui Ot our memories. We should live them over again. ihe more irynig our situation now, the more should do this. Whatever we we lack in the present, we should not permi ourselves to be robbed of the ftinshioe and song of the past. You are agi d now, and the children arc scattered. Yes. but call them around you again and in imagination witness their play, hear their prattle, clasp them to vour hearts and hush them to slumber as in other days. It will do you Rood. You arc in poverty uow ; you live in a small house. Call up better days. Call up the old home REMEMBER THE DAYS OF YOUR PROSPERITY, It has not alw.ays gone hard wiih you Live over your triumphs O, ill-treated wife ! sit down now and then and think of vour childhood's home: of the tenderness of mother and the love of father ; of broth ers and sisters with whom you plaved when every hour was happiness. Let the past rise before you as a beautiful picture, and retire often into the chamber-gallerv of your soul to gaze upon it. Remember youi mercies in the past. ell them to your children. Recount them te your brethren. Be witnesses to God s goodness and kindness in days that are gone. Then, if we have neglected any christian observances or duties, we should not delay resuming them. The Israelites again observed the cere monies of circumcision and the passover. They revived neglected dutits. We should imitate them. YOUR CHILDREN. Are vou doing your duty by your chil dren? Once you instructed them in God s word. Once you taught them to pray, and prayed with them. HOW IS IT NOW? Are these not neglected duties you should take up for your children? The Lord s A supper is one passover. Are not some who once gathered at the Lord's table absent to day? Once your voice was heard in prayer. You had a family altar? Your interces sions ascended as sweet incense in the prayer meeting. Has not the family altar been broken down in some of your homes, and are not some of you misled? "Where prayer is wont to be made" should you not renew these duties? GOD IN HISTORY. Let us be taught by this thrilling scene in Joshua's life that God is in history. There appeared to him a messenger from God, saying, "I am captain of the host of the Lord. I have given into thine hand Jericho." God, after all, was the commander-in-chief of the armv of the Is- raelites: Joshua was only an lnsirument. won the victories. God is in history, my friends. , AMERICA. He was with our Pilgrim Fathers when they crossed the strong Atlantic. He euided the Mayflower. He was with those nooit men ana wemen in aii me perua uu . . i 11 .t il 3 sufferines of the wilderness. He wag the commander - in - chief in the baltles of the xwevoiunon: w asningion was out xxu iu strument. He spoke through every orator for liberty, and controlled the brain and hand of the immortal signers of the Dec laration of Independence. He has been with this land ever since, moldimg, shaping, developing it, to be beacon-light oi all nations, a reiuge ot all the oppressed. In other lands He has been working and is working to-day- "causing the wrath ot man to praise Him." When it has seemed to us that injustice h?r?.f. it I III UUCUT ncic niuuiug. run viiru n tic working causing even the wars of Napo leon to turn for -liberty instead of despot ism. He is in Russia to day in England and Ireland and India; and Ihe day will come when despotism shall be unknown, when thrjnes shall totter, crowns fall lo the dust, and the people shall be sovereigns. God is among the na'i'ins, and He is wor- iiiff for hertv. enualitv. luslice, love. righteousness, and cHe shall reign." SURE VICTORY, We should also be taught by Joshua's victory over ihe walled city thai the cause which has God on its side is sure to win. God is for universal libertv, and time will brine the glorious result. God is for temperance. Long and hot may b the battle, but that terrible enemy of the bodies and souls of men shall be defeated and slain. God is for education the en lightenment of nations in ignorance, bar barity, darkness, and those portions of the earth are yet to be transformed. God for whatever is good, beautiful, just and right among men, and therefore the march of the race shall be upward. Glorious will it be lo live in coming centuries, and yet not more .o than to do our part towards usherine in those errand times of which prophets have dreamed and poets sung. SUMMER RESORTS.

Onlv sixteen hours to wait for it. 6it down in the freight-house and make yourself comfortable." TOO PREVIOUS. "See here, landlord, didn't you advertise an entire absence of flies and mosquitoes at this place?" "Certainly, sir: but those advertisements were prepared in March, and I assure you in the most solemn manner that we weren't troubled in the least until the last of May. If you had only come up here in April nm u.iilrJ hor-n ti o rl o rrlnrinnc (imo " AN OFF YEAR. "Hot! why, its five degrees hotter here than at horn;!

Everv year but this we have had to keep up afire in July, and we shall probamv nave io nexi year again, it is a sort of an extra season, you see." "But where are those cool breezes you ad vertised ?" "On, thev are on the other side of the lake to-day. You see, this is only one side of the lake, and we can't expect to monopolize all the breeze there is. We must divide up, and give the other resorts some of it." CAME IS HANDY. "See here, landlord, you advertised a big lour siory noiei, wiin a grove, iountams, e -1..1..1 .-I bathing, boating, etc., and I arrive here to find a shanty stuck in the pine woods and the nearest lake a mile away. Explain yourself, sir." "With the greatest of pleasure. The cut of the hotel was one left on the printer's hands, and he worked it in to fill out the column. I ought to have mentioned in the advertisement that it was a cut of a hotel at Long Branch, but I neglected to. Come right in beautiful scenery, woods full of snakes, rates down to $4 per day, and chil dren charged full prices." t DOG CHEAP. ''Landlord, this bill is downright i xtor- tion !" "How is that?" "Whv, I can stop at the Grand Pacific for less than you have charged me." "Yes, sir; but is the Grand Pacific among the hills? Is it surrounded by pines? Has it a boiling spring I Uan you walk over a precipice within 200 feet of the Grand Pa cific? I charge $2 for the precipice, an other for the hills and the spring, and if welve shillings a day for hotel rates, are not dog cheap then I don't know hdw to please you. Why, sir, if the .bum Avenue hotel was on the brink of a precipice two hundred feet high, you couldn't stop there or $8 a day!" 'Squire Rifle's Dream. 'Squire Rifle had a dream Tuesday night and it was the cause of worrying him not a little yesterday. He dreamed that - 1. iL ' J ne was visiung a iuy uu iue norm siue and on his return home lost his hat. He had dreamed the same thing before, and it was always fallowed by ill luck. In re sting the circumstance to Constable Carnes, yesterday, he said he was certain he would meet with some misfortune before he sun went down, and he was right, al- hough it was not as bad as he had imag ined, being simply the loss of some papers in a case which was before him for trial. This is not the first time, 'squire, that an old hat has gotma.n into trouble, so beware in future. FOR DYSPEPSIA and Ller vxm- plaint, you have a printed guarantee on never fails to cure.

The forenoon session was devoted to cliuies, and practical operations were per formed by a number of the dentists, which were witnessed and commented upon by all the other members present. The S. S. White Dental Manufacturing company, through its agent, F. X. Combs, of Chicago, had on exhibition and in prac tical operation in the hall their new elec tric engine and electric plugger. These instruments were critically examined and pronounced very, superior instruments for the use of demists. The engine consists of an electric battery, which drives by means of a flexible shaft the drills and other tools of a dentist. From the same battery is supplied the motive power oi the improved piugger, which operates also by means of a flexible shaft. The White is the oldest and largest dental manufacturing company in the world, and are doing a wonderful work for the science of dentistry. Thev have a complete lDt of the specimens of their manufacture on exhibition at the hotel, and are busy explaining their merits to the dentists present. Other impioved appliances are on exhi bition in the hall, and several new meth ods of proceedure were tested during the forenoon session. The censor. Dr. J. A. Price, of Weston, was present during the forenoon, and a full report of the work was ordered to be made at a later hour. The report is expected to embrace all the salient points of the work performed, and when completed and printed will form a valuable adjunct to the library of the practitioner. Clinic work was continued in the alter- noon, some work having been unfinished at the morning hour At the afternoon sos sion, despite the sweherting heat, the at tendance was very large larger than at anv previous session ot the convention. Nine-tenths of the members present during tne weeic were in the nan, those absent be ing to only through necessity. A number of them left town on the evening trains, so that only a light attendance is expected at t ue closing session to-morrow. L Brewster, jr., representing the Kan- sas i.ity ueniai uepoi ana publisher oi the Missouri Dental Journal, is here this after noon with samplts of his goods. The ex hibit is very complete. His magazine, the Journal, is now the recognized organ of the Missouri association and is receiving a large number of subscribers among the dentists in this and adjoining counties. Dr. . H. Lames, of St. Souis. chair man of the committee on publication, hag a full supply of the publications of the as sociation. "Ihe Records ot the Missouri State Dental association" from its organi zation in 18 o to ibbz, is a haudsome book ot lot pages, and contains a full record o an the proceeamgs oi each annual meet ing.

Dr. Lames, chairman of the committee on new appliances, made a verbal report Many new appliances were shown to the members, from a small spirit lamp to an electric engine. The doctor said he had of ten been fooled in buying new tools, but all he had he could safelv recommend to the nrofession as bein? all that was claimed for them. Dr. Conrad, from the committee on den tal ethics, made a report, rtquring an apol ogy from Dr. Prevost, of Kansas City, for unprofessional conduct. Ihe report was adopted, aud its requirements complied with by Ur. iTevost. Dr. Pearson, from the committea ap pointed at an informal meeting last night to discuss a plan lor the formation of benevoieut association of western districts reported favorably. The report was re ceived. Anjourned. After the adjournment of the convention, a large number of the delegates repaired in 'he salt baths and had a plunge into cjn.l-an ciej.ths of the briny ocean, or at least the Street Springs picture of it Den tists are men who have a true appreciation ot the bright side oi life and eniov every thing) in the nature of f tin.

Much work has been done, and the meeting so far has been full of interest and profit to the participants. There have not been more than half a dozen departures among the Membership, and even they were compelled by a press of business to tear themselves away. Several new members have been added, and no withdrawals have been reported during the year. The selection of a place for holding the next annual convention will also be dis cussed at the session to-morrow. FALSE GRINDERS. The best looking dentist, it is conceded on all sides, Is Dr. Pearson, of Kansas City, who has won the admiration of the fair sex to a soul. Dr. Eimes, in his report on new appliances, refused to allow a case of small and very fine instruments to be passed among tL -mbers, which caused quite a laugh. The Bazoo sold rapidly this morning, soon exhausting the supply. Chas. F. Taylor, of Sedalia, who has been putting in a week at the Springs went down to bedalia to-night, but will re turn to-morrow.

A Variety Actress of Much Matri monial Experience. An Indianapolis Special. The trial oi Gus Goldback and Frank Thomas, charged with stealing $450 from Sarah Freeman, alias Lotta Richmond, the variety actrets. was concluded to-day bv the discharge of the defendants. Goldback is the gilded youth from Pensacola, Fia., who followed the Richmond woman north . -i i i i in April last, ana wno auerwara was ar rested in Chicago, together with Thomas, for the alleged theft as above. Goldback claimed that he originally had $700, all of which, with the exception of S350, he squandered on the woman, and .this amount he entrusted to her for safe keep ing, ihomas is her brother-in-law. Dis covering that .Lotta was trying to throw him, Goldback resorted to a ruse to recover his $350. Thomas aided him, and together mey nea io unicago. This morning the court remarked that the case was a repetition of the story of "Ihe bucker and the Siren, and while Goldback ought to go te the insane asylum for being the "sucker" there was nothing warranting his committal to the peni tentiaiy. The woman's testimony con cerning her own life was decidedly queer. She is still young and attractive. Accord ing to her story, she was the wife of John Lame for eight months ; Henry Farkner for two years; James Clarbone, eight months ; David Robinson, five years, and Joseph Cook two years, and she admitted that she had lived with William P. Neal, of Grand Rapids, seven months, and with several other men. Goldback's experience with her is in the nature startling. He is a youngster not yet twenty, and when he went dazed on her he was the owner of codsiderable personal property, all of" whieh he converted into cash. What remains is the $350, for which she has filed attachment proceedings, and she has also attached his trunks, clothing, and a $150 watch, and if he has anything left not yet attached she doesn't know of it. Besides this he has spent several weeks in jail, and he will have to wait till Sep tember before the rights of property are determined. During the trial this morn ing Thomas testified that Lotta, who is his sister-in-law, offered him $100 to help "down" Goldback for that remaining $350, and that he refused the proposition.

MESSAGE FROM THE SEA. A Bottle and its Message Carried 700 Miles to a Dead Captain's Home. From the Philadelphia Record. Sx years ago the schooaer Ida Burdsal). of Toms river, N. J., sailed from Philadel phia for a southern port. She was com manded by H. C. Brewer, of Point Pleas ant, N. J , who h d shipped a full comple ment oi omcers and men. The vessel and its ill-fated crew parsed down the river and out beyond the capes with all sails set, ap parently bound upon a prosperous and swift voyage. She was never seen again Days glided by, and the owners of the Burdsall and Captain Brewer's wife waited patiently for news of a safe arrival in the schooners south-bound port Weeks wore on to months and no tidings came. Mrs. Brewer and her son wept for the lost hnsband and father, and as the years passed on they.eave up all hope. The son grew up to man's estate, and finally, when time had softened the grief of her loss, the wiie married again and moved from the old home whence her first hnsband had left her to go down'to his waterv crave. Two weeks ago a passing idler along the sun atucean rieach picked up a sealed I iiT t .1 mt i ... uouiBifuui me waves, me bottle con tained a scrap of paper, on which a few almost indistinct lines, were written. It was a message from the dead, which had a J I r uwu Lus-jt-u upon me ocean ior six years, Duneiea ior thousands ot miles, and thrown up at last within a few miles of the home for which it was intended. The scrawling lines were written by uapt. ifrewer to his wife, dated off the terrible coast of Hatte ras, where his vessel went down. The captain wrote that he expected to go down every moment, and he desired, in case the bottle and contents were found, that the paper should be sent to Mrs. Brewer, at Point Pleasant Ocean county. N. J. He sent his love to her and his son. and ex horted the latter to always look out for the comfort and welfare of his mother. Tounr Brewer, the son, now lives at Csne Mar. and the bottle and paper were the other day forwarded to him. He at once recog nized the handwriting as that of his fath er, and was the bearer of the long delayed missive to his mother, who was greatlv a lected at the reception of such an unex- ected message from her dead husband, he confirmed the iddement of her son as to the writing, and retained the paper as a precious souvenir.

OSCEOLA. Discovery of aValuableBank of Potters' White Clay. Apprehension and Arrest of a Dangerous Gang of Counterfeiters. Home Happenings, Personal Points, Interesting Inter rogatories, Etc., Etc. Correspondence if the Bazoo. Osceola, July 10. A hard rain Saturday helped, the corn wonderfully. Hunter's Consolidated shows exhibited here Monday. D. K. Holly will move into his new residence to-day. W. H. Cock, an enterprising merchant of Clinton, is in town. Judge Waldo P. Johnson is spending a few days here with his family. J. W. Gatlin, representing Hall & Beiler, spent the Fourth in Osceola. C. H. Lucas contemplates opening a bookstore in this place in the near future. Owing to the illness of the pastor there were no services in the brick church Sunday. Prof. W. H. Stahl and wife, of the Sedalia university, visited relatives here last week. Mrs. W. B, Eaierson and family, who spent the fourth at Jbort Scott, Kansas, returned home Saturday. Rev. W. W. Warren leaves Friday for Sprague, Kansas, to be gone during the heated term on a pleasure trip. Mr. Holbert Heath and Miss Nellie Stansberry, of Taborville, were married at tne residence oi uapi. a. x. uornenus Monday. Mr. George Deloyier had a narrow escape irom drowning Saturday in Mare- bleau, a creek hve miles east of here. The late rains had swoll. n the stream and in attempting to ford his horse became un manageable. He lost $5.00 worth of groceries. Mrs. Wm.'Perry, living in.Doyal town ship, grew tired of life and on Thursday evening wrote a letter to the family telling hem she was ready and going to die, and left the house with that intention, but par ies following her prevented the occurrence. No cause is assigned for the deed, and it is believed to be a case of temporary in sanity. Some time ago Mr. Geo. Deming, liv ing three miles south of here, dug a pool n his stocx lot, and uneartnea a Jot ot white clay which was considered worthiest until a few days ago, when some children playing around the pool molded the clay into toys and backed them in the oven of a cooking stove without the same cracking or crumbling, and being cut with a knife showed the same to be freefrom stone or, grit, but pure clay. It was examined by considerable experience in the manufactory of stone ware, and he pronounces it the finest white potters' clay he has ever seen. We trust it may prove to be of value, for this is a splendid place for a pottery, there being none within fifty miles. It will be thoroughly tested, and if as good as in. dicatedr a company will be formed to man ufacture ware on a large scale. On Monday, when Hunter's show wa giving their afternoon performance, the proprietor of the show spotted a person Sassing counterfeit money and so informed larshal Calyird and Deputy Sheriff Mor gan, who immediately arrested Hi Davis. Sherman Bohon, John Duvsll, and Bud Perrin, the former being the leader of the gang and boarding at Andrew Miller's, three miles from town. The officers went out there and upon investigating they found a pair of plaster Paris molds and other implements for making -silver dol lars. The officers arrested Mr. Miller, and they are now all in jail except Perrin, who gave bond for his appearance Tuesday next. They will be examined before 'Squire Gardner and bound over to await the action of the United Statics commissioner at Clinton.
