THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO. TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1884.
for Parsons brief stay. Written for the Sunday Morning Bazoo. the daily paper. Who of the many taking up at morn The daily paper with its world of news. Cares, much lesa thinks, of what grim toil 'twas born, k What, zealous care its pages doth infuse? flee is the message from across the sea Before you saw it many hands had wrought The tocsin of some hard won liberty, w fiery battles which in vain were fought. Here is the fray in which sme life was lost, Ihe glow if fire vh.ch reigned just yon a king ; The tale of blood, of some soul tempest-tossed; The deeds of daring which through time may ring. Here is the throe which makes a nation great, Some grand progression on the road to right ; A faithful record of affairs of state, A leader pointing to the Star of Light. There is the peace of cjuiet conrent halls, The wondrous music of a gifted toico ; The sculptured beauty of some palace walls, The friend whose coming made the heart rejoice. There is the knell of softly moaning bells, Which toll the passing of a funeral train ; The heart's glad promise that a marriage tells, The sweet low music of a ymn's refrain. So, one by one, the daily paper holds The prayer, the curse, and Duty's ringing call ; Aid c lisped within its soft and fragile folds Are deeds whose Upas doth the soul appal. And yet of all who take it p and read, Who stops to think of all thr weary toil That touched the pages ere the thoughts were freed Or weary burning of the midnight oil ? Rosa Pearle. SOCIETY NEWS. !

Miss Mattie Kennedy left yesterday evening for the Quarry City, and will probably be with her friend in her last mo ments. One of the dresses worn by "Fay Tem pleton" in her impersonations last Tuesday evening was very much admired for its beauty and richness of material It was composed of huntsman's green velvet and canary colored satin.

I do not doubt that there are many intrigues with women here, and that the female lobbyist does really exist in much plentitude; but the female lobbyist is not necessarily the handsomest creature you ever heard of.

We will state that twelve beautiful young la dies, all masked, have tendered their ser- vice3 to the nre company, to give mem some select vocal and instrumental music as a prelude to the opening of their ball, which, we think, will add greatly to their evening's merriment.

Teed and DeVisser, of the Manhaiten Chess club, have written to the Philadelphia Chess club requesting them to make out a certificate of defeat, which the New York club expects to hang up in its rooms as. a memento of the late match. It appears it was agreed that the losing club should make out an ornamented list of the names of the winners and losers and send it to the winning club. Of the recent visit of Dr. Zutetort, the chess champion of the world, to St. Louis, the Globe-Democrat says: "In summing up the visit of the great master, it may be said that he has shown himself to be just "Then, sir, what do you call this ?"

Light refreshments such as cakes, etc., were served after which the guests dispersed to their homes much pleased with the amuse ments of the evening. MUSICAL UNION. A musical union has been formed in this chy by a number of the musicians which promises some very pleasant enter tainments for the future Among the members are, Mrs. A. J. JLyon, Mr. anu Mrs. W. F.

An answer to the above has been re- i-eived and in accordiance next Thursday oon;nr ot tho Park, a recention will be given to be followed by an elegant banquet and a fine dance nrosrainine. The gentlemen who are in charge of the affair wish it to be distinctly understood that while some sixtv or seventy names have alreadv been enrolled on the subscription list Innkintr towardithe the banquet. yet nolorm al invitations have been issued, nor will there be, and thus no individual will have cause to think himself slighted if his name is omitted. Mr. Messerly's friends may by nnnlinntinn to either of the gentlemen Misses Anna Marvin, Hattie Jaynes, Mrs. M.

Temple, gave a pleasant so ciable last Monday night, to the members of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, at her residence, corner Seventh and Lam ine streets. A large number of persons were present, and a handsome sum w?s realized toward the building of the new church on the corner of Osage and Seventh streets. The streets yesterday were thronged with pedestrians, the ladies especially beiug out in full force. The day was one of sun shine and the streets were quite passable, so that even the little children could enjoy the promenade and the pleasure of having on their pretty clothes. It is however an unpleasant fact that in an exact ratio to the ladies and children the street loafer held his own on the corners and in the pauses of turning over his tobacco com mented on the passers with the freedom born of carefully cultivated audacity. An orginization looking toward musi cal and literary matters in the way of so cial pastime, was effected last Thursday evening, at the study of Rev. G. A. Beat rice, pastor of the First Presbyterian church, corner of Broadway and Ohio. Progrmme will be arranged, and it is expected mauy pleasant hours will result. About sixty persons were present at the meeting, and the occasion was a very pleasant one. The next meeting will take place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Clute, on Broadway. Word reached this city yesterday that Miss Mittie Coffman, a very winscme young lady, who visited Miss Mattie Kennedy, in this city, last summer, is lying at the point of death at her home in Warrensburg. This news will be received with regret by those who had learned to love her during her stay here, but for her relatives the blow will be'indeed a heavy one, as she was but seventeen years of age, and her life's prom ise was full of white blossoms and golden Smalley, Messers. A. W. Perry, W. H. Reynolds and a large number of others. The union met for preliminary arrange ments last Thursday evening at the resi dence of Dr. T. P. McCuney, of Sixth street. high tea. The Free Reading room, as everybody knows, is located on Ohio street, between Fifth and Sixth streets, and while it is very well patronized, yet the ladies in charge have quite a task to perform in keeping its expenses within management and to that end are compelled to give entertainments the letter every particu lar concerning the matter which has so tar been arranged. The final arrangements, hawever, will be completed on Tuesday. Society Elsewhere. rich hill. n Kate Fleming went to Butler Tuesday on a visit to Mrs. Judge Henry.

Nance last Friday evening at their residence, corner Seventh and Moniteau, was pronounced by all the guests present as one of more than usual enjoyment, there being an absence of formality on the part of the guests that brought frith it a peculiar charm. About fifty invitations were issued, and as nearlv all responded or sent regrets the list f names id too lengthy for publica tion. In summing up, however, it a fact that Mr. and Mrs. ftance, in the the role nf hnst and hostess, are simply irreproach- fiVl and their euests eave this as at fiat fc w w o - Friday eveaing.
