THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO. TUESDAY, APRIL 29, 1884.
HOW MANY? Count them all up in your mind, ma telle, And out of the host you trill find, to-day Mow many of all whc have llattred aud bowed, Ah I how many loves you, ma belle, bay ? How many wooed for the shine of your hair, The rare sweet charm of your ripe red lips And the purple depths ol your shitting eyes, Like the lake the swift-winged swallow dips. low many wooed because you were young The girlish laugh aud the care free song, The winsome grace and the tender trust That unto the morn aloLe belong. There are rifts of snw in the golden hair, There are faint sad lines 'round the lips of red And a veil ol tears o'er the lake blue eyes And a slower step to the bounding tread. And who is there lrf t of them all to-day, I erchance but two, mayhap but one, And sadder yet in the gray of lite Of all who wooed there may oe nene. For men arefals in their vows, ma bslle, False and fickle and light and gay. And the golden shine of a curl, ma belle, Is quite forgot when the curl is gray. Rosa Psaele. SOCIETY NEWS.

Social Chat and Queries from the Oooper Gonnty Metropolis. GEORGE D. ELMS, of whom the Bazoo ins hail occasion to speak frtquently. He, it will be remem bered, first vkited Sedalia in 1S7S, passing himself off as a private detective. His sub sequent career is too well known to be irtven at length, but is briellv this : He derted his f.unily here, and they went to Boonville, where tubsiquently his wife prGCurred a divorce. At Montgomery City he won the affec tions of an estimable young lady, and was about to marry her before his true charac ter became known. The Bazoo learned of his doings and he was FORCED TO LEAVE THE STATE on account of the publications made in this paper. Later he turned up at Barry, 111., a sinsll town on the Wabash road, a few miles east of Hannibal. Here he first made the ac quaintance of the good p-ople by intro ducing the ''Star Systtm" of dress cuttintr, but subsequently opened out an insurance office. Of course he represented himself as a single man, and as such "WON THE HEART AND HAND of Miss Cora Allen, one of the most accom plished young ladies of the village. They were to be wedded, when a gentleman wlo had had his suspicions aroused investigated Ellis' past record, and informed Miss Allen that he was 3 married man and a villain of the deepest dye. This, as a matter of course, broke off the engagement. Subsequently he courted and was about to marry a young lady at Griggsville, III. This engagement was thwarted bv a publi cation in the Bazoo, and angered the fel- j low. He swore out :. warrant for the arrest j . r .i:. f ... 1 I oi iue euiiur ui uu paper uii a unarge oi criminal libel, und then shook the dust of Pike county, Illinois, from his feet, prob ably forever. A few months later he turned up at St James, Mo. A notice appeared in the St. Louis papers that he disappeared very sud denly from St. James, carrying the idea that he was dead. This was too good news to be true, and no doubt he iustigated the item himself, as his latest exploit proves that he was not dead, neither was he sleeping, but with hid usual wide-awake pertinacity on the matri monial question, was laying seige to an other suceptible female at Mt. Vernon. Missouri. A letter received from that point, speaks of a divorce suit pending againt Ellis, brought by his wife, who was formerly a Mrs. Pinker, and whom he married about a year ago, and desiring information re garding his past antecedents. This information is cheerfully furnished, and if at any time the Bazoo fails in giving the polygamous dead-beat, Ellis, his due, it it will be a colder day than has yet dawned in its history. It would be praise to call him a scoun drel of the deepest dye, it would be com mendation to call him a villian. His vic tims are constantly sending in returns of his dastardly deeds and the penitentiary has lost a filling inmate when its doors are closed and h? still remains on the outside. Once more, Mr. Ellis, the Bazoo bids vou "ta, ta," and prophesies the day when yourj career will have written finis, thanks to its exposure of your attrocious conduct. j Boonville, Mo., April 26 Correspond ence Goodness me! Let us breathe a little. We looked for a slight breeze, but didn't expect a whirlwind. Every boy in town, from the veriest dude in dudedom down, has been whispering to the Bazoo : "Why didn't you put my girl in your list of beauties?" aud every darling creature whom we omitted to mention, has hinted that Mirely our taste was deficient or our visual organs impaired. We fear that we have offended for life pome dear divinity, but we can't help it. We are only giving descriptions of those whom we reg-ird as "Types of Beauty," though not necessarily our favorite types. No. we are not in love with any of the beauties we admire them all in the ab stract, but you'er mistaken as to any ten derer feeling. This paragraph is written 10 satisfy those self-constituted critics who detect, other motive than a desire to please the public in these letters. Our private opinion as to the relative beauty of these fair ones will be reserved until the close of these articles aud then given if deemed advisable. We don't want to be accused of labelling iur ''beauties," but for convenience let us number them and commence with No. II Ten having been given last Sunday. There are two young ladies in Boonville who fairly merit the appellation "mag nificeut." One of these is No. 11. Her residence is on the east side ot Sixth street strange, how many beauties are con gregated on that lover's promeuade in a square built brick dwelling. In stature she is far above ttie medium height, as in beautv she is far above the average. Her hair is dark brown and ripples down her back in waves, suggestive of beauty's curve. Dark silken eyelashes over eyes of melting tenderness. Cheeks, snowy in their sheen, yet flushing as the shells on distaut ocean's shore. Her form is well proportioned and her carriage as queenly as a princess of the royal blood. Bewitching dimples, lovely mouth, charming and unaffected in her manners, this sweet-faced maiden merits a high place as a "type." Hers is the beauty of a Juno. A lover of the fine arts lives on the east side of Main street, whose sou, transparent complexion, dark brown hair and brilliant eyes, symmetrical figure, all combine to demand for her a place among our typical pretty young ladies. She is a worthy namesake of Napoleon's queen, who charmed the court of the First Empire by her wu and wisdom, her varied and pleas ing accomplishments rather than her transcendent beauty. Dissimilar in face and figure from those previously mentioned, is No. 13. Her resi dence is m a dwelling adjoining, though not :rontiug on Fourth street. Her form is more rouuded than that of No. 12, and she is not so tall. Her hair is dark and so are her eyes, while her complexion is beautiful. Her age is about twenty. Pleasing, popular, pretty, is the allitera tive way, in which this graceful beauty may be summed up. No. 14 is the other magnificent beauty, of lovely proportions and unequalled charm. Her womanly grace and quciuly bearing impress themselves upon even the most casual beholder. Her bg urea poem from a master's hands, a brow moon-tinted as Alhambra's palace, hair light brown in color with just a touch of goldeniiu its luxurious looks, eyes a shade darker, a disposition harmonizing with the beauty of her face and form, make another Juno. Tall and with a royal mein hers is not the beauty that dazzles with its cold br'iliancy, but rather melts with its sub lime heart splendor. Her residence is near the Baptist church. Type of beauty No. 15. resides on Third street. Her eyes are gray and large, her hair is light brown with a dash of that Titianesque that painters love to place on canvas. Her charms are manifold and her name is "of noble birth." A pronounced blonde whose eyes are tinged with the blue of iar Circassian skies ; a place among the types is claimed tor No. 16 by her admirers. Her home is near the public school. A figure straight as one of rupid's deadly arrows and quite slender, hair of that perfect light golden tint that hovers on the edge of summer sunset cloud, completes the mention of this type. For the satisfaction of those who have been worrying their brains, we will say th.tt the young lady living in the south eastern part of our city, and mentioned last week, is Miss Hattie Roberts. So, there now ! FRANK JAMES IN BOONVILLE. A telegram was received th.s morning from Sheriff John F. Bogers, who has been attending the trial of Frank James at Huntsville, Ala., for the Mussel Shoals train robberv, in which he says : "Verdict not guilty. Everything all O.K." This is interpreted to mean that Frank is to be brought to Boonville at once to answer for the Otterville robbery. He will probably reach this place Tuesday night. CHaT. We beg leave to amend beauty No. 6 has not got "a dimple in her cheek." The Sixth street young lady who thought her description was a joke is here by informed that she is mistaken. We don't exaggerate when we can help it. There are two bright-eyed young ladies of the Queen City now visiting in Boonville, whom many of our young me-' would like to claim as "Boonville Beau ties." The- good-natured Boonville corres pondent of the- Fayette j Adyeriib-r thiuks we are "clean ofi" in some of our descrip tions. The G. N. B. C. should rub his eves a little. The Bazoo is a great papr. Since our letter of last Sunday we have received from a distant sfate a letter containing a declamation of love for oue of the branches mentioned. What must be done with it? We are too bashful to give it to the brown haired darling. Don't all speak at once. We will endeavor to conclude our "Boonville Beauties" next Sunday, though we are disappointed in our descriptions to-day. Among others who are yet to be mentioned are: Three ou Sixth street, one on Morgan, one on Main, a dainty lit tle elf on Vine, two in the western part of town, aud several others, whose where abouts we won't disclose. A correspondent of "our esteemed con temporary," the Boonville Advertiser, having nothing original of his own to write, coppies after our article on "The Boonville Beauties" In a very ungen erous mood he adds: "Our girls are not fast, all not given to run after men, or flirt with every stranger thai passes this way, as the correspondent of tlie Bazoo would have you believe." If the cler who wrote the above quotation was in earnest in attributing any expression of the kind to the Bazoo, he muat emphatically lies. Our respect for our girls is as deep aud sin cere as southern sentiment can make it. Our remarks on flirting were addressed to some that we knew were guilty, 3nd to say all, innocent and guilty, were classed to gether, is as unmanly as it is unjust. The Methodist sociable held at the res idence of Mrs. James Nelson last Friday night, was a complete success in every par ticular. As a general thing "mites" aud "sociables" aie dull, but at this one there were nearly two hundred guests, and the evening was delightfully speut. There were recitations by Mr. W.J. McCarthy and Miss Nannie Gibson, which showed consid erable ability, and were highly enjoyed. The music, under Mrs. Lon. V. Stephens' directions, by her Sunday school class, was a very interesting feature of the evening. The receipts were $15. The next mite will be held at the residence of Mrs. John Porter, and the young people and members of the church are expecting another elegant THE COURTS. A Light Day in Legal Circles The County Offices Quiet. evening. SMALL TALK. J. J. Dickersion,of the Pilot Grove Mir ror, is in towu. Mrs, J. E. Watson left this week for Fort Worth, Texas, where she will make her home. A runaway on Main street resulted in demolishing a farmer's wagon without doiue any further damage. Hon. Mike Moran, who vHted in Boonville this week, is an enthusiastic Marmaduke man and reports the north west solid for his favorite. We are requested to inquire what was the matter with John Walz that he hung so desperately on to his coat while talking to a Sedalia girl on Main street recently. "While in Boonville Dr. Sonneschein was the special and honored guest of the T. P. C, and that organization feels greatly gratified at the enthusiastic reception given him. Capt. F. P. Bronaugh recently sold a ranch, the property of Bronaugh Bros., and situated in Vernon county, for $10,700. It consisted of 4S0 acres, and was purchased for $9 50 an acre. WE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW If Frank Swap is really married ? What Fred Dauwalter does across the street? How many boys have engaged papers ? If Joe Clark wants to pay fifteen cents for another Bazoo ? If the troupe that played here Monday wants another actor? How many fools think we can mention every girl in town who has the least claim to beauty ? Which young lady Otto Schmidt blessed the most for pinning the paper on his coat last Sunday ? Seven Wise Men Baffled. The New York Morning Journal says that Mrs. F. G. Kellogg, 50 East Eighty sixth street, was partially paralyzed and by for seven days in convulsions. Physicians were engaged and discharged until seven had failed to help or cure her. She was unable to leave her bed and was as helpless as a child. After using all sorts of salves, ointments, lotions and plasters, her case was given up as hopeless. She was in duced to try St. Jacobs Oil as a last chance. She began to improve from the time the first application was made, and by its cen tinued use, she has completely recovered. A Call. To Capt. Joe Higgins : We. your neighbors and friends, having confidence in your ability, integrity and sterling qualities, do most respectfully re quest that you permit your name to go before the democratic convention as a can did ate to represent the western district of Pettis county in the next legislature, and do hereby pledge our earnest support to you. Very Respectfully, Many Voters of Blackwater Township. A PopBjar Fallacy. Many people think that Rheumatism cannot be cured. It is caused by a bad state of the blood which deposits poison ous matter in the joints and muscles caus ing lameness, stiffness and swelling of the joints and excruciating pains. Kidney Wort will certainly effect a cure. It acts on the Kidneys, Liver aud .Bowels, stimu lating them to healthy action, purifies and enriches the blood and eliminates poison from the system. Go to the nearest drug gist, buy Kidney Wort and be cured. A Remedy for Lung Diseases. Dr Robert Newton, late president oUthe Eclectic college, of the city of New York, aud formerlv of Cincinnati, Ohio, used DR. WM. HALL'S BALSAM very ex tensively in his practice, js many of bis patients, now living, aud restored to health by the use of this invaluable medicine, can amply testify. He always said so good a remedy ought to be prescribed freely by every physici tti as a sovereign remedy in all cases of I'i'ig diseases. It cures con sumption, aud has no equal for pectoral complaints. Directories for Sale. Recently published complete and official directory book of the city of Sedalia for sale cheap.

At the county collector's office fevery thine: is moving along quietly and peace fully. Bob DeGarmo is still in the county jail, not as a prisoner, but to recover his little "soreness." Constable Carnes has not quite recov ered from his recent illness, but is able to "be around some." Water Commissioner Dixon reports very good collections of the water rates for the current quarter. Justice Halstead had a monopoly of criminal business yesterday, there being three cases before him. Street Commissioner Tripp was work ing his gang on Ohio street yesterday, cleaning away the surplus mud. The police are doing double duty now working for the city and wrestling with a case of personal spring fever. County Recorder Conner reported the matrimonial market very dull, with no applications for license for the past two or three days. The ordinance against fast driving and driving across and over the sidewalks will be strictly enforced, as will also that of obstructing the sidewalks with boxes, bar rels, etc. The high license ordinance will take effect aud be in force and enforced from and after the 31st day of October next. The saloon men are doing considerable kicking, but the masses of the people are with the mayor and board of aldermen. BEFORE HALSTEAD, J. P. Annie Edwards, colored, was arrested by Constable Finch, on a warrant charging her with disturbing the family of her neighbor, Audrew White, by loud and boisterous talk and profanity. She was aaraigned, but, owing to the absence of some of the witnesses, the case was continued until Monday at 10 o'clock, An nie going on her own recognizance. About six months ago Henry Snhler, a tailor received an order from a boy named Henry Hanson, for a suit of clothes of the value of $28. In a few days the pants and vest were finished, and Hanson came and took them awav. Later, Suhler was noti fied that the garments were not made ac cording to contract, and they were re turned to him, Hanson claiming that they did not fit and were made of old material. The coat was never taken from the shop. Suhler sued for the price of the clothes. After experts had examined the garments in open court, testifying that they were poorly made, of poor material and badly fitted, Justice Halstead took the case under advisement and a verdict will be rendered Monday. Albert Stevens, colored, was arrested for beating aud otherwise maltreating his sis ter, Nellie Huffman. He said that in the absence of their mother they engaged in a little quarrel, when Nellie called him some naughty names and threw a fiat iron at him. For this he says "he slapped her down." Nellie said he not only did that, but actually took her across his knee and spanked her, besides using very rough and humiliating language toward her. He was fined SI and costs, amounting in all to $10.30, and in default of payment was sent to jail. POLICE COURT. There were two cases on the docket of the First District police court yesterday John Fitzsimmons was arrested Friday charged with drunkenness and disturbing the peace, On the charge of drunkenness he pleaded guilty and was fined So, and released as to the latter. Dock Morrow was found in a drunken condition and locked up. He pleaded guilty and was fined So, which was paid. Mrs. Elliott and Miss Mary Hewitt, two ladies of Enst Sedalia. were arrested for fast driving and driving over the sidewalks of East Third street. They were arraigned at 2 o'clock, when the charges against Mrs. Elliott were dismissed and a fine of S3 was assessed against Miss Hewitt, which, was promptly paid. POLICE SLATE. Following are the arrests received up to 12 o'clock last night: Hugh Bemon, for intoxication. Nelson Atleson, same charge. Chas. Benton, for vagrancy. Man in No. 1, too drunk to tell his name, A colored boy occupies No. 1. He will be released this morning. The Horsford Almanac and Cook: Book. mailed free on application to the Rumford Chemical Works, Providence R. 1. DeGarmo Released. A Bazoo reporter yesterdiy evening called at the county jail to sjr how Bob DeGarmo, the man who was shot while trying to break into Mrs. Dr. Allen's house, was getting along. 1 He was informed that as no warrant had been is ued for his arrest he would be released. The reporter inter viewed DeGarmo in the prison and told him he would be released, but he did not seem to want to go, doubtless prefering to stav in the jail, wh re he was fed and well taken care of, to getting out and having to skirmish for a livinb. About 4 o'clock he left the jail, however, and attracted a good deal of attention by his vest, the back of which had been perforated with bullets. Being a natural-born thief, it will doubt less be but a short time until he again plays a prominent part in some burglary. Having been pronounced crazy by the coun ty court, it will be impossible to find twelve men who will convict him of robbery. -Disease, Propensity and Passion brings mankind numberless ailments, fore most among them are Nervousness, Nerv ous Debility, and' unuatural weakness of generative organs.
