6 THE SEDAXIA "WEEKLY BAZOO; TUESDAY, JUKE 16, 1885.
I 1 ADRIFT. An Evil Needs a Remedy, but What Kind? JBl Sad Story, but an Every Day Episode. It is an old and trite saying that "one "Tialf the world does not know how the other half lives," and perhaps, barring policemen and reporters, who are suppos posed to know just what everybody does, this is true. But in all the varied phazes of human existence, doubtless there is no -class of women more worthy of pity and commiseration than that chits who grow up in the backwoods hovels and the huts hid away among the fastmsaes, where dwell the lower classes of the rural dis tricts. It is true the dramatist and novel ist has endeavored to find a place for iheni and drawiavor to them by picturing them as wild flowers, whose fragrance Jhad only to be inhaled to bring weal h and pomp, and all that is grand and gocd to their feet, nd whose Virtue and purity was unap proachable. But such is not the case. Beared in a "hovel surrounded by idle, shiftless men, -who have no keener seose ot beauty than a Hoteinot or Comanche Indian; ustd to profanity, vulgarity, wbitky and tobacco, the young, pure girl, no nia'ter how bright or beautiful in person or int.-llect, gener ally assimilates herself with her surround ings, marries one of the shiftless idlers whose only virtue is his.prolincness and when the family gets to be composed of jbalf a dozen childieo, a dozen dog?, a gun, a few chickens and turkeys, a gar den patch of squatter land, and if very lucky, a horse, a cow ana pig. The mother tends the babes and the garden, milks the cow, sells buiter and tgus at the country store to supply the family apparel which she makes, mends and washes while the lord of the household smokes a short pipe, iunts, and if of an unusually industrious mm coes an occasional odd day's work at the neighboring sawmill or rives a few clapboards to dispose of for powder and shot. Thtse womt n doubtless on the whole are as contented and happy as the majority of the human race to long as they are per mitted to go on uninterrupted in their course but when necessity or the accidental shooting of a neigh coring farmer's hog, by -mistake of course, or a Batumi rettleis . spirit cn the part of their liepe lord com pels them to go out into the civilized world and ccme in contact with its busy whir, then indeed are tbey as helpless to save themselves as is a straw to sustain a drownirg man. day after day is this exemplified and day after day do the paptrs record instances of the mishaps which befall the wails of this class as they drift lo:t on the mighty sea of civilization. In the brothel, in the gilded halls of luxurious vice, in ihe stree.s, in the prison walls, in the hovels of squaller that initst the suburbs and byways of the city are they found, and first and most de serving are they to be setnin the highways of traffic and travel, just cast loose to drift into the first harbor or shelter may offer, lost amidst a multitude cf fellows penniless and weeping, vainly struggling to reach the old home n st, the old shelter of seclusion. But, alas, how few ever succeed. Like the tender worm that is caught unawares by the noonday sun with the turning of a clod, they faint by the way and fall an easy spoil to the first bird of prey, and all the missionaries, the churches, the boa3ted law order, morality, and christian charity of boasted civilization, seems powerless to help it. A thousar-d times do these thoughts come to the reporter's mind, suggested day after day by the illus-rations ot their truth which come under his personal observa tion, and yet when he tells the B'.ory of one of these waifs, the reader glances it over shrugs his shoulders, cries "bosh" or ''Oh how vulgar," fcnd dismisses it from his mind only to see it repeated in a different -case or diflerentjform day after day. And here, reader, is a repitition of the OLD STORY. "Can you tell me where I will find the marshal' pleaded 8 sad faced woman who -cat on the city hall steps yesterday after noon wrapped in a faded duster. 'Bight up stairs in his office, Madame." "With a weary step the ascended the s air way and entered the presence cf our genial, .but busy Chief Barneit. "What can I do for you?" inquired that urbane official. "Please, sir, I have two little children at the depot and I want to get to Vinita, I. T.j to my husband. $2 is ail the money I have and it won't take me. What must I lo ?" she said, bursting into tears. "Who is your husband, and what does he o?" "His name is Frances, and he works in a Baw mill in the country." 'How came you here away from him?" "We wanted to move Saline county and he sent me ahead. Then he got sick and could not come, and sent for me to come back." ' "Why didn't he send you money to come on?" "He did not have it, sir, and I have only $2 left." "Well, madame, all I can do is to send j'ou to Clinton, that is forty miles, and as ar as I can furnish you transportation." "But how will I get from there home?" "That I do not know, unless ou expend your $2 for a ticket to Fort Scott and ap ply to the authorities there," replied the marshal, taking a dollar from his pocket and calling an officer. "Take this money," ie said to the officer, "and purchase this -woman & charity ticket to Clinton." "Oh, sir, what shall I do 1 what shall I do 1" wailed the poor woman. "I am sorry, madame, but I can do noth ing more for you." "And I will hare to be put off with my children again?" "Undoubtedly." "Can't you take my money and getane m ticket as far as it will go ?" "Certainly, if you desire it, but it will .lake yom only part way." "How far?" " -"On charity rates probably to Wichita." "That is only .twenty-five .miles from nome and I can walk the rest." said the -woman, brighteninf : "pleaae do it." So the officer took the x&oney and it was ':found sufficient only to reach Parson?, and thither the poor woman was rent, to arrive -seamiest, alone aad a stranger. Who will . grre her aelpinf hand, what will become of her aad ne babes, or if. the skk but T&ftUsh lather will ever again nmuftm ffcw deoends upom God acd bunas charity and civiliz tion ,!mrst largfly iiron the latter, probably, although it is neither the safest or the surest. But such is lite. A Lively Race. The Fort Scott Monitor says : A patient made his esc-pe from the Osawatomie asylum last Saturday morning, and strik ing the railroad track near that institu tion, followed it to Paola, with Frank Wright, an attendant, in full i ur ui Occasionally tbe patient would stp and throw rocks at Frank, and to protect him self Frank threw them b ick at him. They arrived at Paola about neon and ihe crazy man took possession of ihe waiting oom at the Gulf depot, where he was captured by six men after a short struggle, lie was put :n jail, where the asylum authorities secured him and took him back to the institution. BOLD BURGLARS. Making Missouri Their Campaign Ground. That a large number of daring burglars are systematically working in the western part of Missoiui, grows every dny more and more apparent, as the details of the r nu merous depradations come to light. That they are strangers is also apparent, from the fact that while SedKa police hive suc ceeded in killing one of them and giving his photo tD the country at large, and h s capture! no less than six, who undoubtedly belong to the fraternity, no one has y t been able to recognize any of them. Two are now being held in this city who are as hard looking specimens, and withsl of a b( Id, dashing genial spirit ss were ever turned lcoe upon a c nimunit. The Bazoo can only repeat what it m d sorm two wteks ago, the people should be on the aler1, and bear in mind that a few bui'es judiciously d'stributed where ihey will do U e most good will prove the most effica cious. Monday's Marshall .News gives the following latest exploits of sjme of the gang : "News reached this cHy yesterdny of another robbery at Miami, although not on so lanie a scale as the first. Sonirtime after 1 o'clock Sunday morning burglars entered the grocery s'.ore of G. H". Jackson, at that place, by way oi a secend story window, and secured $25 out of the sfe, which had not been locked. The burglars evidently were well prep tred, as a number of Uols were found near the s.ife yesterday mornrng. We understand the7 are the same tools used by the bank robbers. They were taken from a blacksmith shop in Miami, where i hey had been placed after being ftund at the Sivirgs bank the morn ing after the robbery. The burslarp, no doubt, live in or around Miami, and in all probability were connected with the bank robbery several weeks Pgo. " The Jefferson City Tribune gives a clue to some of the rest of the gang as follows : John Daly, Joseph I on:.eily, Sani Ab bott and Alrx Burk, four tramps, were ar rested Friday n'ght by Officer Meyers and placed in the hold-over until morning. On being searched several buncaes of keys, files, wrenches and other implements used by burglars in plying their vocation were found. One of them had a memorandum book in which was m pped their line of travel. '1 hey were brought before the re corder and discharged upon condition that they should leive the city at once. NORTHERN EXTENSION. Marshall Moving In the Matter Monday's Meeting. Whatever else my happen it seems now to be a fixed fact that Marshall proposes to be independent in so far as her on inter ests are concerned, and push her railroad connections to the points calculated to do her the most good, that she is "eminently correct" ncne can doubt, That the Bazoo has urgtd the same course upon the people of fcfedalia all know. That it is the only practical, common sense road to advance ment, success, honor, wealth and happintss time has fully demonstra'ed. Hence it behooves Sedalia to strike hands at oncu with her proud and manly little neighbor. Southern extensions, w-ter works and other en erprises are not only desirable but in dispensible to Sedalia's interests, but the time 6eems not to have arrivtd for active work upon them and in so far as ihe rail roads are concerned they C8n only be secur ed by mutual co operation on the part of others equally interested in their construc tion. That co-operation is now offered by Marshall, and as she is the first to get to busice a let her find Sedalia ready aho. Following is the report of the meetiug held 1 st Monday in Marshall: The board of directors of the Marshall & Coal Mountain company held their first regular meeting, after receiving their i bar ter, this morning. The board of directors is composed of I. C. Withers, William Mi Walker, WiLiain D. Bush, William H. Wood, Thomas Boatiight, A. YanAnglen, Jas. A. Gordon, John R. Hall and Andrew Olson. The following officers were elected : I. C. Withers, president: Willinm D. Bush, vice president : William M. Walker, secretary, and J. Percy Huston, treasurer. Measures were adopted to secure an im mediate lecation of the line. The company mean business, and the outlook is favorable for an immediate construction of the road to some point in Pettis county. THE COURTS. Bacon Caught Tripping and," Gets Tripped. j The Suspected Burglar Shows j a Clean Hand. O'Brien (3-ets a Gall From a Wil ling Prisoner. Police court. "George B -con," said his honor yter day as he adjusted his glasses, "you ae charged with getting drunk and trying to clean up the town, this was all welltnougn so lorg as you confiued your operations n the Svaverger busine s awarded to you by the city but the ordinances do not consider the inhabitants as a portion of the gar bage." "It wasn't me your honjr, it was the whisky was in me." "Very well George. I shall fine yon S-5 for allowing the whisky to get iuto you " "But I've got no money your honor." 'The streets are not all clean yet and you can resume ytur employment un 'er the supervision t"f Mr Tripp until it is pud." "Sure your he or its for trippiug e fired me and its hard ye should make me trip agaiu." "Trippirg is your best trade it seems so you can trip down s airs and trip out five days wiih Tnprj. Go or I slnll fine you for contempt." So Bacon went in order to save his bacon. Jesse Hayne and L. C. Hudson wer the only other cases, they plead-d guilty to plain druuks and were assessed $5 each. halstead's court. John Jone-, the suspected burglar, who was brcugh: down from Warreusburg y Chief o; Po ice Burnett Monday niglr, was arraigned belore His Honor Halstead yes terday for a pr liminaty hear.ng. No evi dence being introduceu to implicate him, and no one being able to recognize him, he was discharged. Before go n Jones s a el that he was a miner and smel er, and carue from Joplir, and that he was on his wy to Kansas City. "It was lack of money got me- into fouble," said Jones. "My finances were very low when I struck Seia'ia, and I was afraid I would get out altogether, so I con cluded to try to get a free ridj. I waited nearly all niht to Citch a freight tr in. but fail d, and getting disgusted I sta ted up the road. I laid down on the gras? near the west switch and si pt all night, the night of the robbery ; I heard nothing of the shooting until I got to Dresden text day at 10 o'clock. I bought a ticket thtre for Kansts City and was pulled at "VVar rensburg, and of course you know where I have been ever since. It has Leen pretty hard on me. but as I am a stranger in these parts I have no lau't to find with the authorities, who were only endeavoring to do their duty, and I waut to say here that, I owe them all who hive had anything to do with the matter my sincere thanks for their uniform kind treatment. If I am allowed to go free I sha.l make use of my ticket, which I still have, and go at once to Kansas City, an.l am only sorry the officers got the wrong instead of the right man. Mr. Jones received the apology of the court and thanks fer his kindiy expressions and was escorted to the train, on which he left lor Kansas City, by a pjl.ceman. o'brien's court. There was a sort of dryness in Justice O'Brien's quarters, yist-rday. His honor was waiting anxiously for the appear nc of the comtnble with several parties for whom warrants had been issued but he failed to ma erialize. In the af'ernoDP, however, Mr. H. Smith, from the Housto nia neighborhood came in and said he un derstood there was a warrant out f.r his arrest. "Xot that I know of," Slid his honor. "Well I gufss there is," said Mr. Smitr, producing the document. r,Did you arrest yourself," inquired the puzzled justice, as he took the document which charged H. Smith with assault upon H. Lamm. "It looks that way, and now I war.t to release myself." His honor proceeded to make out he necessary bond, wondering if the next thing offenders would do would be to try themselves in order to secure their fees. Mr. Smi'h s:gned the bond for his ap pearance and skipped out until to-day. PRETTY WOMEN. Ladies who would retain freshness and vivacity. Don't lail to try "Wells' Health-Benewer." Arrested for Robbery. Officer Mooney arrested a oy yesterday morning charged with n bb ry. 'Ihe boy's name is s ii-1 to be Chat McClure.

The accused is a "lly kid" and sa; s he is 16 yeirs old. A BAD WRECK. Good Appetite. Editor Bazoo : It is reported that on the morning that Barley's office was being burglarized, an officer was at lunch, and when informed that a robbery was being committed, he finished his lunch appeasing .his appetite before starting out to hunt the cracksmen. I would like to know if it ii just that such an officer be kept on the forcet whose appetite is so strong that he must shirk his duty ? Taxpayer. . The Bazoo is not equal to the task of answering the question, as the rumor is a freeh one' and perhaps unfounded. Tlie Huckleberry Cordial.

Note the succtss of the .Richmond Straight Cut Cigarettes Picnic "5Te3terday at: Beaman. The members of the Old ScIiojI Presby-te-ian church, including the whole Sab bath scho-.-l, embarked y.strd y in two cars for Beam in, where, after a oriel and jleasant riie, they arrived in fine spirits. Sw-ngs were erected and a lemon ide stand arranged and the rrv picnicers made all preparations for a royal tool time in 'he grove owned by Mr. Hutchinson, of this city. A slight blow came up just as the eh gant dinner was bei"? served, but it was no serious detriment and all partoek with evident enj .yment. About four o'clock the rain which had threatened all dav, catibed the picnicers to lies to the cover of the cars, but it only continued a short time, and all in all, the party had a gnird day.

It is a wealthy and prosperous place, at:d knows no such word as fail. Ttey have had several tnthusiastic meet irgs, organ zel, and gone to work. It is probable they will continue at work until t eir object is accomplished. We propose to offer in lucements for them to favor a connection litre, and for taat purpose we have p; o'n'ed a conimi tte to confer with them and all o hers who favor a direct line from Springfield to Higg nsville. Let our committee make srrangemeuts to have a convention at some point between here and Springfield. Let the convention be composed of delega es from Springfield, Bo ivar. Osceola, Clinton, Warrensburg an 1 Higginsville. Let them organize a c nip any, and then we will be fairly in working order.

Hird work, well wrought with proper fact has awonderful power and influence ; as is plainly evinced by the present efficient management of the Ohio and Mississippi railway. Having by good judgement and careful measures, succeeded in restoring the property from the courts to its rightful owners, with a wise foresight the adminis tration has ut tailed expenses to corres pond with the antieipited depression in bminess, and hs alrt-ady mme a record the wisdom of which will be most ap- rjarent in the future. Ihe road bed and equipment have, however, bea not, only kept up to the proper standard, out so im proved that to-day the "O & M" stands- prominent as the best, most direct ana pi pular line in the territory it traverses, as well as throushout the country.
