BENDER'S BAD BREAK. 4 A Chimney Sweep in the Role of a Detectiye Arrested. He Claimed to be a Pinkerton Man, but was Spotted. BREEZES PROM BARWUM. or fome days past a chimney sweep has been plying his vocation in this city and bis janc.nil courne and sonorous voice announcing his business have attract-consid-rible attantron on the street, but he was civen a pastirg notice and for.o ten Within the past few days however, the am bitions sweep has gained more notoriety than he desires, and in eonsequenre finds himself beh nd p ison bars, and all because he lmxnagined himself a detective and as scchra her imi n-dently announce! him- seil to several police officers. He claimed to be a member of Pink rton's sgencv, in 4he citv on special duty. Like all saide de ective, his statements did not hang to gether very we 1, and the officf rs regarding him with s spjeion. hae since bten watch ing h'm very cic sely. Yesterday 3Ir Jno. Cooper, a icemoer oi fin tenon's agency, as:gned to duty with Barnum s circus, ar rived in she city, and aB such officibls naturally do, at onre SDupht police I ed- quarters, xte was in'orrrea tnt tte-e was a chimLey sweep in the ci v claming to le a Pinkert n d tective, a d at once pronounced him a fraud, as 1 e was aajuai ued with every man thef mploy of that agency, and r qusted that he be lotkei up. This was enough for the officers, who never had any confidence in the festive chimney swe p's pretentions regarding his piofessitn t-s a detective and he was atone? arre-t d by Officer Gt Siajie and locked up on the charge-j cf vagrancy and personating an officer. He gave hs name as Henry Bender, and a search of his clothing failed to reveal a cent. He wore a badye, which he cliim, is the insignia cf authority of Pinkerton detectives, but Mr. Cooper, who wore a genuine badge, said that none of the kind worn by Bender were ever issued by the Pinkerton agency. So it seem that 3ir. Bender's career as a detective is liable to be cut short by a term of service on the rock pile. Mr Cooper, who is a very intelligent gen tleman, in conversation with a Bazoo man, said that the crop of snide detectives was constantly increasing. "But" said he, "of5c-rs should have no difScul'y in spotting them, as they well know tuat a genuine detective never announces himself as such, nor proclaims the nature Oi tin ousmess. 1 h&ve no hesit-mcy in doing so, because I am assigned to duty with this show and it is policy for me to le my busiue-s be known." "You are frequently annoyed, then, by tnide detectives, Mr. Cooper ?" queried the repor:er. ' We find them in almost every town, but we uUilly nnke shor: wcrk of them. Ju-t as we have in this case." ".Many crooks on the ro&d now, Mr. Cooper?" '"Yes, lots of them, but you bet they give our"show a wide b rth. I do not believe that a single one followed us to your town. If he did he came out of Kansas" Citv, and we will gel him before night You bet Kansas City is a hard town and the para dise of crooks," Mr. Cooper has been with the Bhrnnm show for six season?, and seems to have been remarkably successful in gettirg rid of pick ockets and thieves who usually foJlow circuses in snoats, and are the terror ot the innocent and unsuspecting.

Kalfu?, on West Main stiest, was vic timized out of $47, by a clever sharper with whom he was unfortunate enough to travel a portion of his journey. The thief occupied a seat in front of Mr. Garber and bscame very communicative, and upon learning that Mr. G., was coming to Seda iia, the thief also claimed this as his desti nation, where, he said, he had numerous acquaintances. lie t ilked glibly of Sedaiia and her people and proied to be a very entertaining vuiujjamuu iUi ills UUSUfcpeCUU VIClim.

A national bank association that controls votes, said nn honest convictions vanished. What shall are making efforts defects. to remedy these is FRUIT. Marshall P. Wilder says that ta.s maturity of fruit depends on the sac charine matter contained therein. which is followed by the vinous or acetous fermentation, and to prevent the latter and preserve the fruit in all its beauty, freshness andj flavor, the temperature must be kept below the point at which fermentation or the ripening process begins. EXOTICS. Many exotic trees and shrub?, as also natives, do not prove hardy be cause of insufficent drainage. It is quite as essential that land fie draine L for ornamental plants as for fruit trees. High land is not always wel drained. We have often met with: land on an eminence which needed draining more than that much lower lands. OUR TEETH. In a recent address, Mr. Spence" Bate, F. E.
