For several nights past and old lady has made her appearance at the depot and took up quarters for the night in the wait ing room. Sbe refuses to tell anyone any thing about herself or what she intends to do. It is thought that she is demented. It is reported an effort will be made to induce the property holders to pave Fifth street from the courr house square to the K. & T. crossing with red ced ar blocks next spring. It is to be hoped the project will prove successful. The Young Men's Christian associa tion expect to formally open their new hall on New Years day wity a grand public re ception at which a number of Sedalia's leading young ladies will participate and dispense the usual viands and courtesies of the occasion.

With it you can play or sing any tune. It requires no instruction to use it. Let cue play a lively tune on a violin, Bazoo, piano or organ, and one or two oth ers drone an accompaniment with the Bazoo and you have a good bagpipe. You can imitate "Punch and Judy" to perfection by speaking in a shrill voice. Do not blow into the Bazoo ; but sing, speak or make some noise, as the cut-cnt-cut-ca-da-cut of a hen the crow of a rcoster, the caw of a crow, the moo of a cow and hundreds of other noises. If the Bazoo does not work properly, place the lips over the four holes in the tin and draw the breath in and out a few times. Many imitations can be made better by speak through the three round holes in the wood, or covering three holes in the tin with the lips, leaving the fourth uncovered. A quanete or chorus singing through the Bazoo will bring down the house with great applause and invariably receive repeated encores. Buy four Bazoo's, organize a quartette and try il. It furnishes good dancing music for excursions, picnics, etc. Political Clubs find the Bazqo unexcelled forcampaign purposes, as it is easily learned, and the music produced is new and taking. String and brass orchestras find the Bazco a very important addition. The Bazoo sells readily in stores, street and news-stands, at fairs, races, pleasure resorts, &c. Price, 10c, by mail, 11c.

Word was received yesterday in this city of the attempted assassination of Miss Annie Griggs, a lady well known here, by Calvin Be3le, at Tacoma, W. T., on Friday last. Miss Griggs manages the Western Union telegraph office at Tacoma. Eeal hastily entered the telegraph office, and made a loud and excited inquiry concern ing a telegram, aud? wiihrut the slightest provocation, suddenly drew a pistol and shot at Miss Griggs. The lady was sitting only a few yards away; and the bullet grazed her head. Beale was in the act of firing a second shot, when he was grappled with by an operator, who held his pistol arm until he was overpowered. Since the shcoting Beale has become a raving maniac and is committed to an asylum. The as sassination was evidently attempted under an insane freak, as there was not the slight est provocation for such a deed. Mies Griggs was manager of .the West ern Union office herefrom 1876 to 1880, consequently is weli known to the people of this city. She was also manager of the company's offices at Jefferson City, Atchi son and Topeka. Her parents r. side in Cincinnati, Ohio. ELEGANT STYLES IN SLIPPERS, MACKEY'S 206 OHIO STREET. Greatest Variety of Styles in Rub bers in the city MaKgard Missing. Mrs. Maggard, the wife of Macgard, the stone mason residing ..in East Sedsha, is in a terrible state of agony about her hus band whom she believes has deserted her. Maggard is a pretty hard drinker and spends the greater portion of his earnings for the beverage the Irishman styled "the life itself." When he comes home minus money and full of budge his neighbors say the kind of cooing and billing done between him and his better half is not of the char acter generally accredited to the budding of love's young dream. One of these little family matinees took place at an early hour yesterday morning and pater famtlies disappeared and has not since been heard from. Mr. Hugh Duffin, Centrali3, Penna., states that St. Jacobs Oil, the wonderful pain-reliever, is just the thing for rheuma tism and he would not be without it in his house. Almost an Accident. About 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon as a Lexington Branch freight train was pass ing through the Union depot, Mr. Fred. Wilson, formerly a resident of this city, but now running a general merchandise store at Houston! a, attempted to board the front end of the caboose. In Jhe attempt he stepped on a pile of snow and slipped down, falling under the car. Mr. Thomas Field, who was standing near, grabbed him by the coat and jerked him out from under the car just in time to save him from being run over and mangled by the hind trucks. Mr. Wilson was badly trightened, audit is safe to sy that It will be a very warm day before he attempts to board another run ning train. Mr. Field deserves great credit for his presence of mind and actions in the matter, and to him Mr. Wilson is greatly indebted for his present sound condition. Tor Killing His Father. The preliminary examination of Joe Ter rell, for the murder of his father, L. J. Terrell, a rich farmer of Henry county, on November 1, was held at Brownington yes terday. He was held to await the action of the grand jury, and in default of $5,000 bail, went to jail. His brother Andy, who accompanied him in his flight to Kansas, was reletsed. POLICE POINTS. Yesterday Another Busy Day for the Peelers Recorder's Court. For several days past the police have I been waging war upon the gangs of "pan- j handlers," vagrants ?nd snenk thieves that have infested the city for eome time. As a result of their labors during the past two days, the city jail has been terribly over crowded, even :he coridor being full. All of these confined therein, upon promis:ng to leave the city at once, were liberated last evening and told to "get." Before mid night, however, the bastile was again full to overflowing, most of whom were vagrants of the lowest type, and the regular Satur day drunks. an old-timer, Henry Williams, colored, a veteran sneak thief, was again arrested by Marshal Barcett last evening. He is now an old man, and has spent the most of his life be hind the bars, having been convicted and sentenced eight times for grand larceny He will be prosecuted this time for steal ing several saws and axes from various parties residing in the southern part of the city. assaults. A contractor name d Munger w?s at the station, hst night, with a bad-lorktng gash across his face. He had a warrant issued for one "Wilson, a stone mason, charging him with assault. The trouble grew out of a misunderstanding between, the two over the payment of a bill. Up to a late hour Wilson had not been arrested. James Duscali, a peddler, had a difficul ty with a farmer on South Ohia street late yesterday afternoon, which resulted in his getting badly beaten about the face. No arrests. POPLNMEYER PD30DCLXD. JL 16-year-old boy named Andy Popin meyer, while driving a team, had occasion to pass through an ally between Third and Fourth streets, in East Sedalia, yesterday, but finding his way blocked by the wagon of Louis Sweeny, a butcher, he went to his store and requested him to have it removed, when, Popinmeyer alleges, 8weeny jumped upon him and gave him a beating. Popin Meyer visited Mayor Kickman's office and swore out a warrant against Sweeney, which was placed in the hands of Officer Fifer and 8weeney will have an opportuni ty to tell his honor all about it Monday morning. JSXD COWBOYS. A conple of cowboys engaged in a wordy war at the stock pens yesterday afternoon which culminated in blows and would have resulted in blood but for the interfer ence of friends just as the deadly six shoot ers were being drawn. Kealizing that they had done that which was likely to brine them into rather expensive notoriety, the c. b's retired from public notice before the police conld be notified and all efforts to learn their names, proved unavailing. Neither was badly hurt but both were somewhat bruised. A SCHOOL TEACHER IN TROUBLE. Joe Jiles, a colored man, was badly beat en by a colored school teacher named Bobt. Edwards late last night. It seems that Jiles visited Edward's house for the pur pose of collecting money due him for work. On his arrival there Edwards was having some kind of trouble with hi3 wife. Jiles interfered and leceived a seyere gash over the head from a pistol in the hands of Ed wards. Deputy constable Andy White ar rested the school teacher and he will be taught a lesson in law by Justice O'Brien tomorrow. RUNAWAY BOYS. Two boys, aged about fourteen years were arrested by Officer Gossage last night tor keeping late hours. 1 hey gave their names ns Edward Hecker and Andrew Skeen and their parents reside on the cor ner of Fifteenth street and Brooklyn avt nue, Kansas City. They admitted to the officer that they had run away from home and were on their way to the exposition at New Orleans. Thay were both without money and intended to beat their way to that point. BECK, THE BEAT. Sebis'ian Beck, the old man who claims o have leen captured by Sitting Bull and his tribe of warriors and whose story was published in yesterday's Bazoo, was run in by Officer Gossage last night on a charge of vagrancy. On being searched at the station an order for a pauper's ticket to Tipton, signed by the mayor, was fouud on his person. He has been around town three cays begging money from charitably disposed citizens on which he kept about half druck all the time. Later in the night he was released from the cooler and pi ao d aboard No. 4. It is thought now that he is a first-clas3 dead beat and that he has been telling the Indian story for the puapose of gaining sympathy. POLICE COURT. Seven sainiless sinners stood up before the recorder yesterday and received sen tences for deeds done by them the previous day. Jerry Monehan smiled a sickly smile, and said he was surely suilty of the charge of vagrancy which had be;n placed agnint him by an officer. He was ltt off with $10 John Wilson, an ngly looking moke, pleaded not guilty to being drunk and a vagrant. He was found guilty of th charges and fined S10. John Butcher, charged with making an indecent erpo&ure of his person, had hi3 case continued. A Mathews and Wm. Devine pleaded guilt to being out in the snow at an un seasonable hoar, and was let oil with 3 each. Edward Qninn pleaded guilty to in dulging in too much coffin varnish, and making an maecent exposure of his per son. He was let off with 10. NOTES. Herman Bosner was slated for drunken- cess. He is a regular Saturday night patron oi the cooltr. Officer Tom Prentiss weit hunting ducks instead of thieves yesterday, and now Mayor Eickman wants to know who or dered him out on that duty, and what kind of ducks be was bunting. PERSONAL. C. A. Pratt, of Jefferson City, was in the city yesterday shaking hands with old friends. Emmet King and Charley Taylor were west bound passengers on No. 1 yesterday. J. S, Devine, of Clifton City, Mo., called at the Bazoo office last night. He will leave for home to-day. Mrs. J. Q. Cameron, of Topeka, arrived in tsecity last night on a visit to her moth er. Mrs. Patterson, who resides on the north side. A S7itohman Poisoned. A week ago Friday night, Charlie Cur rey, a switchman in the Missouri Pacific yards, was given a drink of whisky out of a bottle by a tramp, who happened to be prowling around the yard. iHe was soon after taken sick, but thought nothing about it being caused by the liquor. He con tinued to work until last fcsuuday night, when he was taken violently ill and had to be taken to his room. Physicians were called and aftr making an examination, pronounced it a bad case of poisoning. He has been confined to his room ever since, but it is thought that he will recov er. Of course Curry does not kuow wheth er it was an attempt upon his life or wheth er it was an accident, as he does not know the man who gave it to him. Mont's Figr. Some time last June Constable Mont. Carnes came into the possession of a pig . it beirg a gut Irom a irienu. it was nenn ea handsome nor very fat, being the ex treme reverse -ugly and lean. Besides it was very small. In fact, it was so small that the constable, to keep it from getting lost, had to confine it in a mouse trap. But time works changes in all things even in pigs. , After a few weeks the pig out grew its quarters and had to be placed in a pen. Shortly this place, too, became too small, and the Bismarck agitator had to be removed to a pasture in the country. There it remained unmolested until yester day the day set apart by all constables for butchering their winter pork. On visiting the pasture the constable was horrified at the enormous size of the once little, sickly looking porker, and he declares that it more resembled a hippopotamus than a hog. With the as sistance of Deputy Finch and several others, it was finally silled and dressed on the ground, it being too large and heavy to h.ntf nn. After finishiwr the iob the con- tafclfl returned to town, amd nut in the bal ance of the day figuring with a contractor to find out the cost oi tne construction ot a which he intends to build. for the purpose of smoking and curing the meat. One of the hams of the hog weighed 1,500 pounds, aad It is estimated by 'Squire T?ltftd. from this, that the entire hot. dressed, will weigh at least 8,000 pounds. SITTING BULL SUFFERER An Aged German Who Claims to Have Been Captured by Sitting Bull. i He GiveB a Thrilling Descrip tion of General Custer's Deatb. A Tear and a Half of Fruitless Search for His Captive Family. A man calling himself Sebastian Beck wes in the city yesterday endeavoring to secure aid to nelp him reach St. Louis, which Le claims to be his home. Beck is a German, about tiiiy years of age and below medium in size His story is that together with some 25 oU or families, he left St. Lcuis with hit Mte and three children in 1875 for the Dedwrjod geld mines. The company were u. charge of Captain Car penter and all r.ived at Deadwood' gulch in safety, where they immediately sunk a shaft and after several weeks work, bad ta ken out some $9,700 of gold ore. One day they were suddenlv surrounded by about 3,000 Sioux of SITTr2?G BOLL3CAB2IY, who took them prisoners and conveyed them to JRosewood river where iney rem-jined six weeks. Then they were trauferrcd to the mountaiu3 in the Little Big Horn neigh borhood where the balance of Silting Bull's army were encamped and there they wtre placed in camp and giveu full Indian outfits including, blankets, paints and feathers. At the end of a week rumors were circu lated that GENERAL CUSTER "WAS ADVANCING. upon them. Mr. Beck says that a day or two ufter, Custer's column came in sight moving up the canyon and Sitting Bull, af ter ex tmining them through his glass came to their camp and tcld them General Cus ter had been sent cut by the Big Father at Washington and would soon be there, when they would all be paid for and set free. They were then given back their cloths, stripped of their Indian outfit and told to keep quiet, a euard being placed over them to prevent them from talking. The Indians, weie encamped on the heights and Custer advanced up the can yon, arriving in hailing distance of them that evening. Beck says that the Indians awaited htm with the expectation of hav ing an interview but were surprised when Ouster s advance came in range by A VOLLEY OF ilCSKETBY. Hastening out of range they pro ceeded to guard the approaches to the camp, and after mak ing the prisoners, of whom they had 600, kiodle fires in the bark tents and in front of them, they quietly withdrew, removing lb.2 prisoners to an adjacent hill, and leav ing them in charge of a guard, SitiiugBuli, proceeded to march his troops around Custer's forces, and await daylight. Next morning, Beck sajs, Custer's men pro ceeded to ATTACK THE CAMP ON THE HILL. Sitting Bull lay quielly in ambush until the camp was taken, and when Custer's men, who had just discovered their mistake, returned to the canyon, they were at tacked from all sides. Having expended nearly all their ammunition, they were in a comparatively defenseless condition, and every avenue of escape bting cut off, were easily massacred. Speaking of ouster's death, Beck says he was slain by Chief Kainy Face, and was one of the last men killed, Beck's story being that Kaioy Face reached Custer's s;de and begged him to sur render. Custer refusing, Kainy Face, pointing to Custer's dead comrades, said, "See your men lying there all killed. You must surrender or die. Give me your arms r Custer, Beck says, drew his sword with a sudden flash, hissing between his teeth, "i WILL NEVEB SURRENDER to scuh a as you." As the brave general raised his weapon to strike a ball F-c'a revolver crashed tfcrmifrh hU forehead and he fell dead. From this point Sitting Bull retreated to Manitoba, Canada, taking his prisoners with him, and they were not released un- til after his surrender. Beck says he returned to Standing Hock opnrv a vefcr and a half aeo, and has since been searching for his wife and chil dren, the la'tter consisting of a boy aged 18, aud two daugniers ageu rtapcixcij xu and 12 years. He says the families of th e miners were captured Dy anotner aeiacn ment of sitting bull's forces, 9ni Tip has noteean or heard from them since his capture. He claims to have formerly resided m aronaeiet where he inn a saloon, and to be weli known to Anheuser, Busch and other brewers in St. Louw, hi3 present desire is to get to St. Louis to raise funds to prose cute his search for his family. As to the truth of his story the Bazoo cannot say. Rut iiiuTP i nn n neat ion about his having been among the Indians and as his de scription of the terrible massacre is different Irom any previously puunsueu n. w for what it is worm.
