THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, APRIL 29, 1884.
i A AIRY" TALE. a Once there lived an old owl in great hollow oak, a bird of Jearnine: and respectability, who had traveled over half the world, and eat up all night to study ; though some people would have it that it was to eat mice pie and frog-stew. And either they were right, or philosophy agreed with him, for he grew so fat that he could hardly waddle, and did little besides sit in his hole and doze. One day there came through the forest a procession that made the wood-elves and flower-spirits weak with astonishment ; five hundred pages in green satin and pink ribbons, , each playing on a lute with all his might ; a thousand knights in golden 1 1 " J iL. armor, a Dana or musiuiuvs, auu me Lord High Fiddlestick in yellow saun and black velvet, who all drew up be fore the oak, where the owl sat blink ing and trying to get his eyes open to see what was the matter. Most learned owl, her serene and re fulgent highness the Princess Ita com mands your appearance at court, said the Lord Fiddlestick. But the owl hooted the courtiers out of all countenance. What can I do at court, asked he. Do any of you care to hear the wisdom of the forest, or the tales of the elves ? I love retirement, and must have a frog stew always served up at midnight. Then I can neither sing nor dance. What does your prin cess wTant of me ? So the Lord Fiddlestick and his train went away ; but the next day came back again. Wise and wonderful owl, said the Lord Fiddlestick, the Princess Ita de sires you to come to cuurt. The golden tower is ready, for your use, and the robes of the Lord High Phil osopher are being made for you as fast as possible. Besides, the princess has engaged a special cook, who will pre pare you a frog stew every hour dur ing the day ; but her royal highness thinks that broiling and frying at mid night would keep her awake. Then I can't come, answered the owl, glad of any excuse : for he didn't want to go in the least. But the next day they all came again. Come to the court, said the Lord High Fiddlestick. The princess consents to your frog stews at mid night. Then the owl, who had no longer any excuse, began packing up with a very solemn face ; and while he was about it, the crow spied him. What is the matter? asked the crow. You look as if you were going to be hanged, instead of being Lord High philosopher! What is the matter? Because I am sure to be hanged, said the owl. I have lived in a tree all my life. What do I know about courts and their ways ? Oh! is that all? said the crow. Why you have nothing in the world to do but turn up your nose at every thing you hear aud see. Nothing can be more simple. But, said the owl, they take me for a philosopher, and I know nothing at all. I have done nothing all my life but catch frogs and mice and eat them. Give yourself no trouble, said the crow. You have only to talk the first nonsense that comes in your head ; and the less they understand the wiser they will think you. So the owl sec out ; and they journey ed three days till they came to the palace of the princess Ita. All the crurt came out to meet him ; but he scarcely looked at them, aud scarcely touched the princess's hand with his beak. Then said all the court, What dignity ! Wbatself-possesion ! He must be a great philosopher! They took him to the golden tower, and showed him a marble bath, and golden bed, curtains of purple velvet, painted ceilings. The sheet of his ted were edged with lace, the iarpet was of velvet, and all his cooking was to be in sil ver porringeTs. The "courtiers ex pected to hear from him some words of admiaation, but he only stalked on in silence, turning up his nose to him self till he came to the bed, where he lay down only to jump up again in a great hurry. It is so hard ; I never lay on such a bed in my life, said he. Which was perfectly true, because he had always roosted in a tree. But the courtiers said : It is plain he has always lived at court ! What a .great personage he must be ! At last the princess sent to request the owl to lecture before the court. He shut himself up three days, ate frog stews all the time, and then lectured before the princess as follows: Your serene highness ! I propose to speak on this occasion in the reful gent elasticity of imponderable impal pabilitie these being, as you all well know, only the mere maxillary and mortuary residum of sesthetic things. The laws that govern their being and I use the term law in defiance of Theyonosiatus, who insists that there is but one law, and that the term laws practically nullifies the verification o the entirety of our theses I say, I use tne term laws, nemg convinced, by long study, that all fossils and fe- racious products alike uplitt harmo nious voices, and subtend the incalcu lable comparabilities of my position. The court listened with open mouth. Not one understood a word ; but none dare say so, because each was afraid that his neighbor was wiser than him self. So all said : How beautiful that is! Exactly what I always thought. And the owl lectured every week and nobodv understood him ; and so he remained Lord High Philosopher to the end of his days, and died with the reputation of & great sage. A VETERAN ENGINEER Nearly Forty Years on the ij'oot bo&ri of a Locomtive. Philadelphia Time. The oldest railroad locomotive en gineer in the United States is Lawson Luikins, generally called Squire Luf- kim, of the Philadelphia and Beading railroad. He is as tall as Don Quixot ic and almost as thin, but his career and character are the reverse of Quix ote. For nearly forty years the rider of the swiftest of steads, and in con stant danger he has never met with a windmill or other serious accident,and so far from roaming in search of ad ventures he has devoted his whole thought and energy calmly to his plain duty to the carrying of his passenger safely to their destination and on time. Mine has been a very simple life, said the squire last night, and when I look over the thirty-seven years I ran a swift passenger engine it makes me wonder that so few things stand out. It's all a dead level now. I began en gineering when I was just 20 years old, which was pretty young, and you see I need't be tottering on the edge of the grave to be the oldest engineer. When I began I hadn't served an ap preHticeship as a fireman, but I was a well trained machinist. Locomo tives were my delight to study, and when I got one to run myself my am bition was realized. I just settled down to my lifework then and there. At first I was bothered by people wondering at such a boy engineer, but I attended strictly to my work, and soon I knew I was all right and safe, and the officers came to the same opinion before long. I loved my work and I never let my mind run off the track. My engine and my duty were more to me thau anything else I could think about. When an engireer's raind goes off on side trip3 his train is apt to make a violent attempt to fol low. Didn't you feel the effects of the work and the responsibility on your nerves ? I can't say I did. I've read of doc tors saying that no man can stand the physical aud mental strain of running an engine more than twenty-five years I don't believe this is so. If it is 1 am a great exception. Iam just as capable to-day as I ever was in my life and I think I could go on and complete my second twenty-five years. Of course the engine shook me up,and there was noise and exposure all the time, but I got used to these things. They got to be as matter of fact as eating. As to the sense of responsi bility, I felt it, of course, but it sus tained me instead of breaking me down. Why it is the soul of engineer ing, this thought that one is taking care of the lives of others. If I don't have it I wouldn't run an engine. It would be like running a church with out any God. And I would not work on any railroad if the safety of the passengers was not the very first thought in every department from president down. No Grease for Him. "When Greece her knees Greece her knees Greece her knees." stammered an embarrassed school boy, forgetting the next line of his recitation. "There if no occasion to grease anybody's knees," shout ed his teacher. "Go and study your piece." Neither is there any occasion to grease your hair. Parker's Hair Balsam is all the dressing you want. Restores the original gloss and color to gray or laded hair. Does not soil the linen ; not a dye ; good for the scalp ; prevents falling out. On a Scientific Bust. Detroit Free Press. A few years ago if a man was seen hallowing at a box set in the wall, an swering it with yes ! You don't say! Well, I declare ! No ! and so on he would have been thought crazy. Now it would be known as a simple case of telephone. A man must keep track of sf ientific improvement before he judges too harshly of his fellow man. Last night as Policeman Baton was walking up Lafayette avenue he heard female screams and a tre mendous crashing of bottles and glass ware. On rushing around the back way he found a man acting like mad and smashing soda-water bottles promiscu ously in the back kitchen. Baton did not want to bring Mr. to the station, for that gentleman was one of Lafayette's most respectable citizens, so he tried to calm him down and get him to reason. He was as tonished to find Mr. : quite rational, even if a little out of breath. Although the soda was all around there was no trace of the brandv. No, officer, said he to Mr. Baton. It is not a case for the police depart ment, but rather for the fire depart ment. The kitchen was in a blaze and so I was merely smashing th ese patent bottled up fire extinguishers. You see this globe contains some liquid which has a depressing effect on a fire. I guess I mashed them a little too lively but then this was our first fire and we were all a little excited. 0, certainly. It's all right. You were (tying your duty. Don't mention it. Good night. Ah, by the way, you needn't let this get into the pa pers, you know. A Popular 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 and Bowels, stimu lating them to health?" action, purifies and enriches the blood and eliminates poison from the system. Go to the nearest drug gist, buy Kidney-Wort and be cured. PIS , , HHKHr ElflLLLLLVyLr GERMAN REMED1 r it P Pnsumatism, Neuralgia, Sciatica, "Liimbaao. Backache.

Bunlette, in Brooklyn Eagle Now, when the day was far spent I girded up my loins and gat me to the tram. And it was number twenty two, mail express, going East on four teen 8 time," for the snow was deep Twenty-two was three hours late, and fourteen was abandoned. Dimly lighted was the car, and cold. Men curled up in their overcoats and hated one another, aud no man spoke to bis neighbor by reason of the cold and delay. Twinkling past go the station lights, white and cold lay the driften fields, and with rattle and jar the train crept along. Two seats ahead of me a seedy-looking man, be reft of his overcoat, and not fastidious as to collar, began to whistle. Usually the note of the railroad warb- er wakens our ire, but we all listened o this man. Mellow as the flute notes rose his many puckered whistle. 'Home, Sweet Home. At the first ine surly looking men sat up to hear. Mid Pleasures and Palaces. iot often did the seedy whistler roam amid very- gorgeous palaces, we wot. Scant indeed must be the pleasures of a man without an overcoat on a stormy night in March. "Be it ever so humble "we followed the air with the words as we listened, and the stranger seemed to be breathing his very soul into the song. Ah, yes, humble his home might be, as lowly indeed was his state, but welcome and warm love light from watching eyes and the home light from the ruddy hearth, the clinging arms of little ones waited for him, and we were glad of it. The very car grew warm er as he whistled. Into the distant corner, away down by the woodbox. the mellow note3 drifted, a dreamy current of melody. "There's no place like home;" why, it swelled out into the very storm with its passionate longing. It made those of us who were not going home homesick down to the soul, u A wand'rer from home" there were tears in the melody ; no alien splendors could dazzle a heart so home loving. "Oh, give me the lowly, thatched cottage again," came fairly sobbing in the tender, bird-like notes, and then again the "Home, sweet home" refrain, sympathetic, rich, plaintive, yearning. The train slowed up, stopped, the conductor came in abruptly, the mellow whistle died away in a scarce audible sigh. "Corae'said the conductor, "I can't carry you any futher." The whistler rose, and as he vainly fumbled for a button on his buttonless coat, started for the car door. "This wiy, shouted the conductor, and the whistler meekly turned and walked out by the forward door. A lantern swings out from the step, the train moves on, aud the homeless whistler is shivering out in the snow. "What station is this, conductor V ''No regular station. It's a cross ing. Station's two miles further down, don't stop there." "Where did that fellow get on ?" ''Clibmed on at the tank, when we took water about twenty milts back." Our Oharminpr Countrywomen. are winning an enviable distinction for their fine teeth. This, they in a great meas ure owe to the beautifying and restorative influence of SOZODONT, the most popu lar preparation for the teeth on this conti nent. It removes from the dental surface every impurity, checks decay and enable the teeth to masticate without contaminat ing the food, thus indirectly contributing to healthful nutrition. It effectually neu tralizes an unpleasant odor of the breath.
