THE SEDAXIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, APRIL 22, 1884.
5 "ARBOR DAY." POEM BEAD BY WILLIE PABStERLEE. " 'Twill be my aim to describe a scene some thirty or forty years in the future when the pupite of the Broadway school shall be scattered to different parte of this mundane sphere, but revisiting the scene of this day's work shall enjoy the greatest pleasure man has been born to meet." On one still unbroken Bummer's night, Tbere came a man and stood beneath these trees. His head was bowed and his form was bent. His beard was hoary with the frost ot years. His eyes were cast uion tha verdant green, His tongue moved and yet hr spoke not. Then suddenly the moon withdrew her light And left the world ii darkess of the night To persue her lone aud solitary coarse, Then the man spoke as it wtre by inspiration of the Invisible. These are the scenes of my deserted youtn, Here is the tr when but a boy I planted And with my young companions wished it lon gevity. The man bo lost in meditation and in dreaai Did not perceiv the moon's last radient beam Hor the aged heads it did disclo-e around him, But spoke out in that same unknown and mys terious way My companions; full well do I remember every one Ab if but yesterday I stood upon this ground And listened to the word of parting. Then breakiBg forth from out her cloud of snow Shone down the moon on many a face below, Each having thought himself alone before .Now the tale was told, severally they had wand ered there For when in sehool days past they had pledged themselves To tend ard protect the trees which spread thsir branches over head. With but one thought they now had come, To seek the school and see the home That sheltered them in years agone. The school miiy have been broken up long ago, But yet the ld house reared her time worn form Like some gigantic sovereign in the midst of trees Blossoming and shooting forth their branches. Gathered once more was Broadway school, From distant lands and foreign rule Holding communion with one another, It pleased and gladdened all the r hearts To feel those things which never past From memory but are linked together With the loud recollections of the past.

W, Wilson Takes Himself out of the World. Thomas Lonergan, While Seeking His Caboose Finds Death Under the Wheels. Special to the Bazoo. Moberly, Mo., April 18. About one week ago J. W. Wilsou came to this place from Boonville to procure work as a mechanic, and failing to do so he became despondent and took to violent drinking; his money was soon exhausted and he was taken to the Merchants hotel last night by a policeman to remain till 12 o'clock when he was to be sent home. The policemen called at that hour to take him to the train, but when the room door was opened Wilson was found sitting on the lloor with his head drooping on his chest and a bullet hole through his brain. He had killed himself in a mood of despond ency. KILLED BY THE CARS. Between three and four o'clock this morning Thomas Lonergan was found dead near the main track in the north yards of the Wabash railway, in this city, with his head badly cut open. He had worked on the Wabash in the capacity of a brake man and came in last night from Kansas City. No body knows what his motive was in rambling about through the yards at such an unusual hour, unless he was look ing for the caboose iu which he was ac customed to sleep.

THE DEADLY DERRINGER James C. Foreman Probably Fatally Shot by One. Ohas. Jones. The Good Citizens of Hannibal Aroused and in Hot Pur suit of the Murderer. Special to the Bazoo. Thursday evening about 6:30 o'clock a probably fatal shooting affray took place in the western suburbs of tlnscity between Chas. Jones and James H. Foreman. Jones was formerly employed as watch man at the lime kiln near where the shoot ing took place, but a short time ago he was discharged and a fourteen-year-old boy put in his place. About a week ago Jones and another man blacked their faces and went up to the kiln where the boy was, and nearly scared him to death. The affair was the talk of the town and recently a lot of men got together in a West End grocery store, Jones and Foreman being among the party, where the outrage was freely discussed, all agreeing that the men who did it were not worthy of the name of mau, but rather brutes, and that they were cowards, Foreman coinciding with the rest. Thursday evening Jones met Foreman near the stock yards and stopped him, saying: "And you think I am a coward ?' Foreman said he did not know who the guilty ones were but that he did think they were cowards. Jones said he was no coward and that he would shot Foreman, at the same time drawing a revolver. Foreman said he was a coward and that he dare not shoot, bdt he did, the ball taking eflect between the eyes, and when assistance arrived the brain was oozing out. Dr. Binney was called and dressed the wound, but it will be impossi ble to save the life of the wounded man. At 5 o'clock he was still alive, but was ex pected to die at any moment. After the shooting Jones started across the hills in the direction of New London, closely pursued by several men, but he drove them off with bis revolver, saying, 'There are four more loads in this revolv er, and if you follow me you will get them." A posse of men was organized seon after the shooting, and started in search of Jones, Marshal Reiinan going to New London in hopes of inteicepting him The feeling here is very interne, and if captured Jones will probably be summari ly dealt with. He is between 25 and 30 years of age, and has been regarded as a worthless character. Foreman is a man about 30 years of age, and is of steady, in dustrious habits. The shooting took place in Balls coun ty, and the courts of that county will con sequently have jurisdiction oyer Jones' case. CALIFORNIA NOTES. The court house is an elegant one, and the city and county are out of debt. The graded .school, under the super vision of Prof F. W. Parsons, assisted by a corps of five highly accomplished lady teachers, is a signal success. California is in a flourishing condition and on the boom. A stock company has been organized for the purpose of building an opera house, and considerable stock has already been taken. A company has also been organized for the purpose of evaporating fruit. It has adopted the Houser's Circular evapora tors, and propose to work up about 200 bushels of apples per day. Among the members of the company are some of the best business men of the town. The manu facturers of these evaporators, Messrs, Geo. W. Houser & Co., have located their shops at California, and are determined to make the enterprise a success. WHATS.

A Texas Paper Reproduces the Latest Developments in the Murphy-Eaton Scandal. The Daughter of a Well-Known-Clergyman, Among Other Of fenses, Charged With Embezzlement. Three years ago, Friday, the terrible cyclone which almost totally destroyed our neighboring city of Brownsville, and caused great loss of life, occurred. Apro pos of this event, there now comes to hand a partial recapitulation of the famous Murphy-Eaton scandal, given in a special from Fort Worth to the Dallas, Texas, Herald. The origin of this scandal, to gether with most of the oarticulars, are known to the readers of the Bazoo. At the time, it caused great excitement in this community, owing to the prominence of the parties and their extensive acquaint ance here, especially of Miss Murphy, who was a well-known society belle of Carrollton, and daughter of the pastor of the Baptist Church, Rev. Dr. Murphy, who was highly esteemed, not only by his parishioners, but by all who knew him. While at Carrollton, Mo., Miss Murphy became the custodian of funds raised by the ladies of that city for the relief of the victims of the Brownsville cyclone and the sufferers rendered destitute by the forest fires in Michigan. It is charged that Miss Murphy appropriated these funds to her own use and benefit, and that only con sideration for her father and friends pre vented her from being prosecuted. The story of Miss Murphy's secret marriage, the box of poisontd candy, and the other sensational details of the case, are already familiar. Following is the special under recent date from Fort Worth to the Dallas Her ald : For some time past there has been talk of what was going to be shown in the Murphy-Eaton case when Mr. O. Eaton came back from Missouri. He has been back some time, and since theji much has been said about an indictment found in Missouri. For several days past members of the Bap tist church have been receiving copies of the Carrollton, Missouri, Democrat, which, is found to contain the following: uThe Democrat has refrained from taking sides in this case and has simply republished such, news concerning the affair as was made public by other parties, and previously given to the world through other channels. Because of the fact Rev. Mr. Murphy and family once lived here, and that his daugh ter, Miss Fannie, was a prominent member of our society, there was of course great in terest felt in this community in all the de velopments of the case and every thing bearing thereon was eagerly sought for and devoured. It is due Dr. Murphy to say that he enjoyed the confidence of our com munity, and" was resneoed as a minister and Christian gentleman. As regards the Fort Worth affair, published as the Eaton Murphy sensation, and investigated at the hands of a church committee, resulting in the withdrawal of the charges preferred against her, (Miss M ), neither we nor our people know anything of the merits of the case, and whatever feeling there was in the matter here grew out of the fact that Miss Murphy, when a resident of this place, had the handling of certain funds contributed by our generous hearted people, first in response to an appeal made for aid for suf ferers in Michigan, and subsequently for the victims of the Brownsville cyclone. The latter case was one that especially ex cited the sympathies of the citizens of Car rollton. They were our neighbors, and our good ladies worked hard to raise a purse to help in the hour of their distress. The sum of $149 50 was handed over to Miss Murphy as the result of their labors, not a cent of which ever found its way to Browns ville. In addition to the amount contrib uted at this place for Brownsville, there was also at a previous date contributed t he sum of $30.00, for the .benefit of those overtaken by the terrible Michigan fires, which amount of money was also transferred to Miss Murphy for remittance, but only $10 of which, as we understand, reached its destination. And it is current ly reported that the grand jury, which closed its session yesterday, found an in dictment in the latter case, (had it written up,) and was about to report it, when that body was informed that on account of the offense having been committed more than twelve months since, the case was barred by limitation, from prosecution. Thus the matter ends, for the present, at least. This article has had the effect of causing the famous case to be discussed aud re-discussed, and people wonder what next. Ad far as known the grand jury has not inves tigated the case here and the friends of Miss Murphy say they are anxious to have the matter looked into. It would seem as if the case was not settled by considerable. No harm can come from Papillon Cough Cure, it is absolutely vegetable and cures whooping cough. Forsale by Q. C. Slack. 4 Butcher Released. Fred Butcher, the Montserrat coal miner who was arrested some time ago for being drunk and carrying concealed weapons, was released yesterday. To a Bazoo rep resentative he stated yesterday that his ig norance of the laws of this country was what brought him into the difficulty. He came from Germany where he had taken the woman he married out of a house of correction, with the understanding th it he would leave the, country. He came here and was compelled to move from several places on account of the intimacy existing between his wife and the men with whom she came in con tact. When he moved to Montserrat he thought that everything would be right, but he reckoned without his host. One day while he was at work in the coal mine his wife left, taking with her everything of value in the house, even to Mr. Butcher's naturalization papers, and moving the furniture where he could not find it. The only thing she left was a small 22 calibre revolver, which he put in his pocket and started out to find her. As previously stat ed, she was in this city, antLwhen he went where she was she had him arrested He was fiued $50, but as he worked hard and waa of good behavior he was released yes terday. He says he will not prosecute his wife although she rightly deseres it.
