Our Cream Tartar brand of Andrews' Pearl was omitted, evidently for a very good reason, judging from the relative merits of Andrews'" "Pearl" and the Royal, as clearly demonstrated by the Government Chemist Dr. Peter Collier, of the Department of Agriculture, at Washington, from samples received by him from dealers who furnish the samples from their stock on hand in open market.

Burnouffh's Bad Break. The old adage "that a little authority is sometimes a dangerous thing," was pretty well exemplified in East Sedalia tbe past week in the case of one Burnough, who by some means secured an appoint ment as special policeman from Mayor Rickman, to look after the hoodlums who had rendered themselves odious by un seemly and disorderly conduct in and about the Montgomery street church after tbe inauguration of the protracted meet ings under the conduct of Miss Smith. Whether it was from the unuiual an noyance produced by -his efforts to perform his duty turning his head or an overzealousness, resulting from his ignorant bigotry and self importance, mat ters not. The fact stands that Mr. Bur nough proved to be fully as much of a nui sance as the one he attempted to abate, if the reports of the parties concerned are to be relied on. Burnough during the past week made two arrests but in both cases failed to sustain any charge against his prisoners. This was bad enough, but on Thanksgiving night it i3 said he com pletely outdid himself. The story ns told to the Bazoo's scribe is that on the evening in question, R. D. Jack3on, jr., a son of the well known lightning rod man accompanied by his sister and several other Indies attended the meeting. When they arrived they found the building crowded and every seat occupied. Taking a stand in the rear of tbe room they were decor ously listening to the discourse. Young Jackson's sister was holding his hat in her hand when Burnough entered, and rudely addressing him, ordered him to leave, finally ejecting the boy and compelling him to go home without his hat. Return ing to the church Burnough abused the ladies soundly, even going so far as to shake his fist in Miss Jackson's face. If these charges are true Burnough not only de serves severe punishment, but the contempt oi every gentleman. A LOVER'S REVENGE. Dukes, the Affianced Lover of Zora Burns Avenges Her Death. He Follows Her Slayer, Gar penter, to Dakota, and Kills Him. The Deed Raoews tbe Excitement Caused by the Terrible Tragedy. Tbe readers of the Bazoo w;11 remember the intense t-xcitement created by the cold blooded murder of Zora Burns at Lincolu, Illinois, last spring and the subsequent trial and acquittal of Orrin C, Carpenter as the perpetrator of the foul deed. In addition to the sensation produced throughout Ve country by the afftir, the matter created a marked local interest in this section from the fact that Carpenter had previously re sided in Benton county and still has con nections there. Owing to the bad odor credited at Lincoln toward him by tbe general belief in his guilt regardless of the verdict of the jurv, Carpenter was compelled to leave Illinois and went irom there to Dakota. A report now comes from there that Dukes who will be remembered as the affianced of the mur dered girl has revenged the crime by killing Carpenter at Blunt City. D. 1., and is now held at that place to answer for the crime. When this news reached Lincoln, 111., it renewed the interest and excitement in the case and so strong is publicjjentiment tbat money is being raised and witnesses have volunteered to go to Dakota in order to clear Dukes. But as vet no narticulars be yond mere mention of the killing have been received and public suspense is at its height in that usually quiet place. Speaking of he matter a local paper says a telegram sent to Blunt brought back the reply that Carpenter went to Sioux rails two months ago. lhis rumor brings to mind that since Carpenter has become entangled in this murder mystery his past career has coma to tne surface, and it was soon discovered that years ago a boy named Orrin A. Carpenter, of tbe make up and age that he would have been at that time, was tried and convicted of burglary and served a term in the Massachusetts atate prison. The story was published here while Carpenter was mak ing his arrangements to leave, and although he heard it as well as his friends no denial was made even in reply to direct questions concerning it. The marriage of his daughter, which ook place on the eve of his leaving here, was attended by the rather noyel spectacle of a clothing merchant, demanding tbat the bridegroom pay for the wedding suit he wore, or peel instanter. Tin Hebrew meaut business. The clothes were paid for and the play proceeded. After the groom's exit from here it was found that he had eft mourning creditors behind. The mar riage so romantically begun (Eugene Stein, he groom, was in Carpenters parlor on the night of the aiurder, and at the inquest sadly contradicted his sweetheart's testi mony, but afterward his affection changed his note), could but have a queer ending. The honeymoon was scarcely past when the newly wedded wife left Eugene and re- urned to the home of her father. Another phase of the case' is that Car penter's faithful partner is in for a $ 500 bond which he signed for the Chicago de tective Esmand alias Mark Felton- the double dealer employed by Carpenter as a. spy in the camp of the prosecution. In his eagerness to serve Carpenter, Felton got his foot in it and was indicted for obtain ing money under false pretense. To save his carcass from jail, Esten, the partner,, signed the bond. Felton went to Chicago,, and although he had received his. pay in full, sent another bill to Carpenter for 3100. which was not paid. In revenge and to save himself from conviction he fled to Canada, and is now enjoying the bracing air of that re gion, while Esten is making arrangements to pay the ungrateful villain's bond money. Carpenier is in Dakota, and before he left here he failed to make bis promised statement. Tbe belief that he cm the poor girls throat is becoming firmer and firmer as time slips away, and but few who are best acquainted with the facts have any idea that the murder will be laid at the. door of any one else. Inhuman Hachney, The Jefferson City Journal tells the fol lowing story of man's inhnm inily to worn- an: "a very s-au case oi wile aeBercion came under rotice of the police Thanskgiving. LSevaral weeks ago a man and his wife named Hachney, came here from Kansas and took up quarters in the old frame house opposite Clem's livery stable. In a short time the man left for parts unknown and the woman was left in a helpless and desti tute condi'ion. Wednesday night, she, all alone in that wretched house, gave birth to child. Nothing was known of her actual con dition until Thanksgiving morning when the police found the matter out. Ihe child was then dead and the mother lying- m a cold and vacant room on pile of old rags. The woman in. fact, was nearly frozen and starved to death, Marshal Schrimer at once took steps, to have her present wants relieved, in which he was substantially aided by Judge Swift,, of the county court! The dead child was turned over to undertaker Heinrichea and buried by him, and the woman was hastily provided with everything that she needed. Any man that is brute enough to de sert his wife and leave her in the eondition indicated by the case, should be promptly lynched. There is no other remedy in the world for such animals and nothing else would have such healthy effect on the com munity." Such wretches should ba hunted down with bloodhounds and if they escape their voracious maws they should be hung to the first convenient limb. K, of P. Festival. The preparations for the grand festival to be given by Sedalia Lodge No. 27, K. of P. are progressing favorably. They pro pose to give full value for the ticket, the price of which is 50 cents, which will enti tle the bearer to one admsssion to a good supper accompanied with good music and other entertainments. The ladies, wives and sisters of members of the order are taking part in this entertainment, and they will surely make it a success. Tickets can be had from members of the order and at Addor's store, second door west of post office. r Died. Lst night at 9 o'clock, Florence, aged 11 years, daughter of Mrs. S. C. Gold, fell asleep in Jesus. The funeral will take place from the family residence, corner of Third and Osage streets, at 2 o'clook this afternoon. Friends are invited to attend. This death is a sad blow to the father and mother, and falls upon the hearts of all who knew this lovely child with crush ing force.
