THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, TUESDAY, JTTjSTE 16, 1885.
3 RENO'S RACKET. One of the Slickest Dead Beats Extant. How He Managed to Pool the Police and People. C. E. Reno is little, but he is awful loud, at least when be gets behind the bars. He struck Seda'ia two or three days since and proceeded io-make the acquaintance of ihe interior of the saloons in rspid style. In appearance Reno is small, stoop-shoulde'd with the wicked? t fac and meanest eyes ever possessed by mortal man. and h bl ick dyed moustache adds to its fierceness. Apparen-ly he had but one arm when he struck Sedalia, and the blood curdling stories of dare devil heroii-m shat cost him his good right arm, as he poureJ them in o the ears of ihope who would listen to him, were calculated to stir the sympathetic hearts of THE OLD G. A. R.'S until they would give hin a pittance, but if he met a former wearer of the gay, the story was the satn1, onlyT he changed b tu ners and belonged witi them. Yeterd iy he was run in, but managed to get off" oq account of his one arm. Last night he showed up at the depot and tried to gull the p ssengers but he was a spotted man ; the sttrs that lookel down from Heaven were eo moved by his pa thetic story they lorgot to guard him. In fact, the s ars both of his hcroscope and of the city's blue coated guardians were for once, a leist, DEAD AGAINST HIM. He seemed to realize this, and boarding the first section of the east bound train he tried to skip, but the conductor turned the cold shojlder on him and bounced him at the Washington avenue cros-ing. But whatever his vices, Reno possesses one vir tue, perseverance. Re:urning to the d p:t he boarded the second section as it was al most ready to start, but Officer Meyer had HIS EYE ON HIM Entering the car he demanded : "Where are you going ?" "Eist," replied Reno. 'Have you a ticket?" "No." "Well, you had better get off and get one." :I gues3 I know my cwn business. I've got money to pay the conductor, Sir." Meyers was bluffed but not be ten. Get ting off the train he went to Co ductor Hooten and said, "'There is a fellow in there trying to beat you. Demand his fare and if he don't whack up step your train and I m take care of him." The train was already moving. It reached Washington avenue, then slopped and Meyers got on WITH HIS MAN and brought him to the jug. Gossage and some of the other boys were there for the midni ht change of watch. Reno was searched. ''Take off h:s coat," said Gossage, waDt to see the s ump of that right arm." RENO DEMURRED but that made the boys determined and after a tustle the coat came off, showing a good sound right arm. The boys laughed, but Reno cursed and raved. "rut it all down," said Gtssage, "drunk, vag and tres pass." Reno, who had been locked up hesrd-him. Then he wanted to lick the whole ou'fit if they would let him out. He could do it in less than a minute. He had killed lots of better men. HE WAS A MASON, an Odd Fellow, a K. of P., K. of L., G. A. R., and belonged to all the good orders, and would make them suffer. The boys laughed and went off, leaving him raving, but as he had the whole calaboose to him- self, he was doin? no harm. He will have a nice time pulling wool over the eyes of hiB good G. A. R. brother, Recorder Sny der, this morning. Collided.

Toward the close of the last act of "Xanon" at the exposition cuildiog last n:ght, a crash occurrtd and bries and suppressed groans were distinctly luard by the audience, and for a few moments the performance came to a stand still. Behind the scenes leaning on the lap of tne of her companions lay the chorus girl, "role, moanirg and in great prm. Another was being carried insensibli lo the dressing roDm, while a third, likewise moaning and evidently suffering great agony, wrs being f-uj ported by two of her friends. At the back of the st-ge a platform had bten erectid on nestles composed of thin dry planks, evidently unfit to carry the weight of twenty-five to forty people, who had been crowded upon it. Mr Kliije, of the Thalia Opera coinpmy, makes the st.t ment that only two ladies were in jured, and neither seriously. He admits the platform was not built as strorg'y ss it should have been, and says it wss due to the hnrry 0: the preparations tint the acci dent occurred. The temporary stage erect ed by Mr. Hamlin here and ihre, have been some questions by the city authority s as to whether they would allow the struc ture to remain, owing to its apparentlv dangerous character. Killed and Wounded. Paris, June 11. At Thiers town in the department the Puy-de-Daoie -murJer trial hasten m progress for several days. Yes terday, the last day rf the trial, the court house was crowded with men and women anxious to witness the closing scenes. When the people were leaving immediately afer ihe adjournment of court and were jam med upon a stone stairway leading to the street the lofty stairca-e fell. The scene that followed was appall. n. Immense masses of masonry from above crushed down on the struggling people below, grind ing through their fi-fch and bones and maiming and mutilating them in a horri ble man hp r. The fall of the saircase and thi shriekd of the people lying helpless in the ruins caused a panic m the court room and there was a rush for the wrecked exit. Those who were in front were unable to with stand the pressure from behind and were hurled down upon the men and women crashed in the fall of the stair case and whom the people in the street were- al ready striviog to rescue. When at length the panic had exhausted itself and the im mense stone steps of the fallen stairs had bten removed twenty penons were taken irom the ruics dead. The injared num bered cot less titan sixty and many of these will die of injuries. A later dispatch says in addition to the persons killed fully one hundred persons were injured. Many of tke J A e injured &re women ana meir wounas are oi a serious character. IATE2.

The body of the man who did the shooting iu the Union depot at Fort Worth, last week, was found the next day in a water tank, about 100 yard s-juth of the depot. The coron er's inquest developed the following fact3 : The man's name was C. H. Swing. He was a mechanic, and was on his way from Pennsylvania to Temple to join hi3 brother there. He was de layed here by the washouts. His mind was filled with stories of Texas terrorism. He fell into a doze, and was aroused by the hand of a confi dence man in the pocket He leaped from his seat, diew his six shooter and fired several shoots, wounding two men, and one ball passed through his left lung. After emptying hi3 re volver he dropped the weapon and made for the door, doubtless thinking that the desperadoes were after him. He ran up the road and leaped the fence into the tank, evidently una ware of the danger. The doctors says the wsnnd in hii breait would have proved fatal.

There are thousands of small farms scattered through all sections of the country, but more particularly in the Eastern and Northern States, upon which the ambitious owners are trying to imitate the policy of the great grain growers of the West The owners of these small farms h'ave a mistaken idea as to what their small acres are best fitted to produce in oider to give-them ull and profitable employment. A large share of these small farms are located in timber countries, where the soil is frequently of a light sandy character. Such farms are not adapted to grain raisaig. Stumps usually go together on these soils, and whert they are found labor-saving implements can not be used to advantage- Even if the land were smooth, the small area cultivated would preclude the use of high-priced machinery on the score of economy. The ownera of these farms do not seem to take into consideration the fact that there are millions of acres of rich Western lands producing grain at less than half the cost per bushel that they can produce it for, and with bt ter "facilities for marketing it. Sulky plows.seeders, reapers and bind ers, are, by reason of their high prices, and for the reasons given above, out of the reach of the small farmer. Not so with the great grain raisers of the West, however. Any machine that lessens hand lalsor materially is cheap to them at almostauy price. This fact alone would preclude all possibility of successful competition. And when we consider the superior adaptability of these Western lauds for grain raising purposes we can easily understand how unprofitable any competition with them will prove to "the small farmer on a comparatively light soil. Why then will our small farmers per sist in following a policy that is so ruinous to their interests? Probably with this as with most other questions many conditions are involved. If we were" to closely investigate the causes in the present, prominent among them would be found the following, no doubt: First. The tendency of a class to follow in old established ways. Their fathers and grandfathers before them have raised grain all their lives, and they seem to think that they are not farming unless they do the same. They forget that the condition of things fifty years ago was entirely diflerent from what they are at present. Facilities for marketing and exchanging products fifty years ago were very limited in deed. In those days it behooved every farmer to raise, as far as possible, nil those articles that were needed for his own home consumption. But to-day the case is entirely diflerent. The facilities for transportation are so uni versal and so comparatively cheap that it is no longer iperatively necessary for the farmer to produce those thing3 that are not naturally adapted to the capacity of his soil. It will not pay for him to try to raise his own bread when wheat can be put down at his very door for less than it would cost for him to produce it, any more than it would pay him to go on carding, spinning and weaving his own wool when he can buy the manufactured cloth at half the cost of the labor that he would have to put into its construc tion, if he insisted n following old hand methods. Another reason why farmers con tinue on in the old ways of farming is, I think, because they lack that knowl edge and skill which the finer branches of husbandry demand. This is not so much a lack of ability as it is a lack of inclination, or of concert in that par ticular line. It does not require any very great amount of skill to plow, sow and harvest grain, year after year, especially where no heed is taken of the ultimate wants of the soil, as is too often the case in great grain rais ing districts. Yet farmers are prone to turn up their noses at any other kind of farming. Fruit raising and gardening are poohed and sneered at by such men as being away below their notice. Many of our small farmers try to take on the same airsT and could not think of descending from their agricultural dignity enough to engage in any such small one-horse business as I have mentioned, even if it did offer double the returns from an acre, thus giving full and profitable employ ment upon a few acres. Small farms demand small farming. This might mean dairying in a small way, fruit growing, gardening, or any thing that yields large returns from small areas, giving profitable employ ment to the avifilable labor as great a part of the year as possible. W. J). Boynion, in Western Plowman. Luxury Fatal to Life Luxury and leisure are more fatal to human life than downright hard work, whether of muscle or of brain. Steady labor of the body hardens the muscles, invigorates the nerves, and gives the deep rhythmic movement of health to the breathing. Steady labor of the mind purifies, invigorates and feeds both nind and brain. Lack of bodily labor results in bodily atrophy ancl wasting; lack of toil of the brain means the gradual death of the mind. Over work iometimes kills; complete cessa tion of .activity always kills.

Eternal Vigilance the Price of Raisin Flock. To begin with, restrain your desire to count your young turkeys and let them, alone for the first twenty-four hours after they get into this "cold and un feeling11 world. At the expiration of that time they will be quite strong and decidedly hungry; remove them to a clean, p.iry, roomy coop, and give them their first meal only it mustn't be meal at all but boiled eggs, stale wheat-bread crumbs just moistened with milk or water, "Dutch" cheese, or a mixture of all these. For the first two weeks feed entirely with the eggs, bread, curds, cooked rice, and cooked outnieal. About the third week commence feeding cooked corn meal; and from that on they may be given any cooked food that would bo suitable for chickens of the same age. Season all food sliglitly with salt and pepper, and twice a week add a level tablespoonful of bone metl to a pint of feed. Never feed any sour food or sloppy food of any kind, except sour milk, and never feed any uncooked food of any kind until after they have thrown out the red on their heads Feed often, fivo or six times a day, until they are three months old; then, if insects are numer ous, you m- gradually reduce the number of meals per day to three, or even two. After they are three months old, they may be given wheat, cracked corn, etc., but no whole corn until they are some five mouths old. Keep the" coops dry and clfan, and the turkeys out of the dew and rain? until they "are fully feathered, and l.avo thrown out the red. Dampness and filth will kill oun turkevsaj surelv as a dose of poison. For the first few days confine the poults to the limits of the coop and safety run: then, if all appeirr strong and well, give the mother hen and her brood liberty on piecant days after the dew is oft. If they get caught out in a shower, get them to shelter as soon as possible; and if any are chilled take them to the house and thoroughly dry and warm them. See that the little turkeys come home every night. A hen mother will come home at night-fall, but the turkey mother must for the first few nights be hunted up ana anven nome. Alter tnpy are three months old turkeys are quite hardy, and may be allowed to range at all times. If turkeys that are well cared for, and have always seemed all right, show signs of drooping when about six weeks or two months old, give Douglas mixture in the drink or food, and add a little cooked meat to the food once day.
