Drops from Sparkling Waters Notes, Personals and Grand Opening Ball. Sweet Springs, June 2S Special. The Springs are just now beginning to presen; an attractive annearauce in the way of reg ular guests which it has heretofore lacked. Every train brings new arrivals, and from north, south, east and west uif y nan. nere comes the tired merchant, the man of many cares, no matter what his business; the housekeeper with her brood of little chil dren about her ; the society woman who spends her existence in a boarding house, and has no more idea of the domesticity that the young iadie's hair was "shingled" close to her head. OPENING BAIL. The long talked of opening ball came off last night, and while not as many, perhaps, were present as had been expected, yet a Urge number of guests assembled to do honor to the occasion. The dancing was under the able direc tion of Prof. Shank, of Sedalia, and the dance programme was tastefully gotten up under his direction. The dances were all of the newest and most fashionable in use at eastern summer resorts and the young people enjoyed them much. The dining room was converted into a ball room for the occasion and as the music was excellent a large number were soon in graceful motion. After dancing until mid night, a supper was served, which did great creeit to the nianagerf, and consisted of rolls, salads, cold sliced beef, tongue, ham, lamb, sardines, cakes of many varie ties, confectionery, fruit, nuts, ice cream and coffee. Among the ladies present whose toilets were worthy ol special mention may ue particularized : .

Just then a mule team came tearing along, running away. Both men jumped out of the countryman's wagon to save themselves, and just then the front wheel of the running-away wagon struck the hind wheels of the chicken wagon, knock ing the bed out of shape and tipping the "spring" chickens and the old hens out, which run in every direction. Both teams were then in a run, and the countryman run after, shouting, "Whoa! whoa l" at the top of his voice.
