SOL. SMITH STEPS OFF. Sol. Smith, the well known ac tor, died Thursday morning last at his residence, 148 West Fourteenth street, New York. Mr. Smith had been suffering for several weeks and his condition was deem ed so serious a few days ago that his wife who was traveling with Lester Wallack's "Lady Clare" company, was summoned to his bedside. The news of the commedian's death was received with astonishment by the few actors who still remain in the city. Many of them were not aware that he was ill. Mr. Smith was about 4o years old, having been born in Kentucky in 1S39. He was the son of Sol. Smith, the cele brated comedian, who became famous through the west and south between 1830 and 1S50. The father was also a member of the old theatrial firm of Smith & Cald well. These two gentlemen were the pio neer managers of the west, and their com panies plaTed to houses in all of the prin cipal cities west and south. Mr. Smith was also a brother or the late celebrated actor, Mark Smith. The deceased made his first appearance in New York during the season of 1863 at the Winter Garden thea tre, playing the Hebrew character of Na than, in the burlesque, "Leap." Subse quently he was attached to various com panies and played in the principal cities of the country, his specialty being that of an ecentnc comedian. He acquired a reputation aoove the average in that line of business. Eight years ago he married a widow, daughter of fc'edly Smith, the old manager of the Boston mus eum, who had acquired something of a rep utation of an actress in California. Mr. Smith was a good musical actor, and four vears ago made quite a hit in Brooklyn as Sir Joseph in "Pinafore" and in "Our Boarding House." He also attracted con siderable attention as Shouter while his wife assumed the role of Mrs. Culver. During the last theatrical season, Mr. Smith scored quite a success at Tony Pas tor's theatre by his rendition of the charac ter of the husband in "Yim," with Neil Burgess as the leading actor, winning great applause. The dead actor, besides his wife, leaves a stepson and daughter. SWEET SPRINGS SPRAY. are i86."1 heJte9ses on? ai. W scenes ana SKetcnes jjtohi a Popular Summer Resort.

A large number of guests are expected to-morrow from Independence, Sedalia, Kansas City and other local points.

This week the most notable occurrence has been the Bar association meeting which took pkee Tuesday and Wednesday. Big wigs from all over the state were here and as thev were here as much for re creation as legal lore they evidently en joyed the situation. Among these, the most eminent lawyers of the country, there could not help but be men of grand intellect and even in conver sation, keen wit, apt illustration and fine points were conspicously plentiful. The banquet which was given luesdav evening was an elaborate affair, the menu being a carefully prepared one not only in its epicurean serving, but in the manner in wnich it was printed, the paper being a delicate cream tinted parchment with scar let letters and bordering. THE BANQUETING TABLES were in the form of a hollow square and each individual's name was placed on the plate allotted to him. .highly gentlemen sat down at once and as the tables were adorned with flowers and fruits and napkins folded so as to represent boats, shells and tans, the euect was hne. A novel feature ol the banquet, worth mentioning, was the drill of the waiters. Each man fell into line under the direc tion of the caterer and the relays were brought in with the regularity and precis ion marking the well trained soldier. Miss Mvra Fielder, of Kansas City, one of the most popular young ladies who ever patronized the Springs, will be here again in the near future. Mr. and Mrs. Lon v. Stephens, oi Boonville, came in yesterday morning, Mrs. Stephens is a charming woman and has many friends here.

Lane, manager of the "West ern Union Telegraph company, and bride, are guests here. The gentleman married a young lady irora Lexington, Kentucky, who is both handsome and intelligent.

St. Louis, July 5. The Age of Steel pub lishes to-day over ninety letters from lead ing manufacturers of engines, iron and wire of working machinery, steam pumps, hardware specialties and iron roofing in the principal cities east of St. Louis, setting forth the present condition of these indus tries and giving reports as to the outlook of the trade in these lines during the next six months. It appears from these let ters that the condition of business in these industries is not as bad ss has been repre sented, and that the aggregate of sales for the first six months of this year is consid erably greater than those for the last half of 1883. Engine builders have been wen engaged, anu in some instances are behind with their orders. Manusacturers of wire are working to their fullest ca pacitv. There appears to be more busi ness depression in the east than west. The present dullness of trade in some depart ments and low scale of prices nrevailing is attributed to a want of confidence induced by the late failures in New York and un certainty as to the tariff legislation and political struggle now fairly commenced. The majority of the correspondents antici pate a fair trade during the remainder of the year. "Sichis not strange perhaps, But better left with some Slight covering." After the departnre of the barristers, a lonely feeling for a short time seemed to hover around with a "black bat" air, but soon new arrivals brought about renewed activitv and in a short time the gaps were filled and life and good cheer and flir tations and children and widows and maids and maneuvering mamas and spring water, fresh air and gayety were prevalent on all lianas. DAKCING PARTIES ARE IN VOGUE, and the bath house is well patronized. Apropos, vour correspondent while swing ing around the circleldiscovered somethings worth relating concerning the fairieniinme bathers, and, just like a "borrid man" will tell what by careful computing he has summed up : First, nine out of ten women are bow-legged, four out of six have thick ankles, six out of eight have too much fullness about the waist, seven out of eleven are too broad across the hips, six out of seven have over-lapping toes, eleven out of twelve have corns, and only one in twenty- hve has the gracemi proportions ot a Venus. Don't imagine, young and unsophisti cated Paul, that lrginia is all she looks, for she isn't by any means, and as as an actual fact, here is just what one of the dear creatures put on after leaving the bath First, she donned a curious looking little garment with short sleeves and pockets iront, then sne supped on a pair ot "sur a few days with their friends, the Misses Thomas, near Gailey. Harvest has commenced in earnest, and the farmers will be busy as bees for a few weeks, while the tradesmen will pass the time lounging on their counters and fighting flies. A select company of the elite from this immediate vicinitv met together at the Green Kidge picnic on the Fourth and had a charming time, getting all the enjoyment possible to be had from such an occasion.

The horrors and fatality resulting from the late disaster at Grand Eiver bridge are fasfc developing in detail as the wreck is clear-" ed, and what was by some strange means given out as a minor accident, is proving to be one of the worst catastrophes ever occurred in the state. Up to the present time, 12, m., nine more bod is had been taken from the debries which, with those recorded yesterday, increases the number, KNOWN TO BE DEAD, to fifteen, but up to the present writing" only four have been identified as follows t John Long, Fred Young, A. Fisher and John A. Dillon. THE MORTALLY WOUNDED. So far as known those mortally injured ar as follows : Eobert Baker, hurt about the head and body and internally; is unconscious. D. Haywood, cut on the head and in ternally injured ; reported dying. James Bruce, temple crushed. Philip Beck, the engineer, badly crushed and internal injuries. James Dick, fireman, hips crushed and both arms broken ; is sinking rapidly, James McCord, hips crushed and inter nally injured ; is reported since dead. BADLY INJURED. James Young, shoulder crushed Platte Young, leg broken, injured inter nally. Ward West, badly cut on hips and back. J. Bronson, leg broken and internal in juries. George Brown, right thigh broken. James Hogan, badly hurt in back and hips. y- Archibald Hill, badly bruised. J. P. Maxwell, of Sumner, wrist sprainr ed. hips crushed and hurt internally. Albert Short, of Sumner, ribs biokax and internally injured. The bodies of Abraham Webb, of Cun ningham, and Jno. Long, of Sumner, are known to be still in the wreck. Divers are still at work but how long it will be before the fall extent of the calamity is ascer- tained, is not known. THE CAUSE OF THE DI3ASTER, is said to be the defective character of the bridge, the centre span of which, being the portion which gave way, is about 150 feet in length and was supported tem porarily on false work while undergoing repairs. Its elevation is about forty feet from the surface of the water and since the work of repairing has been in progress , trains have been required to cross the bridge at a very low rate of speed. Phillips Beck, the engineer of the unfortunate train, in backing over the bridge, shut offr his steam for this reason, but when the center of the bridge was reached, finding sufficient imputus had not been given to carry him over, steam was again put on and the concussion caused the bridge te tremble and totter. Finding the bridge giving way, he sounded the whistle to- alarm the men, and but for this, not one ot those who occupied the eight cars would have escaped, as a moment later the entire structure gave way with a crash, precipitate ? . t x V ing cne enure irain into tne river among its ruins.
