The Sedalia State Fair's bfr R mense and Indescribable Trades' Procession. will try to furnish the Bazoo readers : .11 particulars. w A COUNTRY FfGHT. KNIGHTS OF MACCABEES. Two Brothers Fight about Kean Poles and Run a Bare-footed Race to the Justice. rrau- One Hundred and Fifty Floats of Gorgeous Design in Line. Much has already been said con cerning Sedalia's coming exposition and inaugural of the great state fair but the half has not vet been told. In order to ascertain as nearly as pos sible what really was the outlook for this most important move and what arrangements were completed to give it a proper celebration, a Bazoo scribe was detailed to interview the managers and did so with the follow low ing result. Mr. Wm. Beitler, the gentlemanly and energetic secretary, was the first met at his office. "What is the outlook for the fair ?" was the first question propounded. "It is simply splendid. Never in the history of Sedalia has it been so good, nor have the people, both at home and abroad, responded so cheer fully and heartily. There seems to be a widespread interest and a unani mous feeling that a great central fair is one of the most urgent reeds as a permanent factor to the advancement and advertisement of our state." k 4)fou have visited most of the county fairs in the state held this season, I believe ?" "Yes, sir." "Have they been well attended n "Yes, sir. The attendance and the displays have both been remarkably good." "Of course you obtained an ex pression of sentiment both from the managers and attendants of these fairs concerning your state fair project?" "Most undoubtedly, as that was my principal reason in going." w "What is the tenor of the public sentiment?" "Universally and unanimously in favor of it, in fact mostly enthusias tic, to tell you the truth I have been much surprised myself. Our associa. tion when it undertook a state fair did so with fear and trembling. We felt confident it was needed but we had no idea it would meet the reception it has or that there was so universal a feeling of the need of such an institu tion throughout the state. " "You think then success is as sured r 4 Re von d a doubt. There seemed to be but one expression, that was a state fair is needed, Sedalia is the place for it. We will come and do all we can to help it on." "How about exhibitors ? " "They hold the same sentiment al most without exception. They said they would be at the state fair with their exhibits, and entrees are flowing in beyond all expectations." "What expositions have been vis ited'" Mexico, Columbia, Fulton, Hig ginsville. Marshall, Tipton, Hannibal, St Joe and this week Bismarck Grove, Kansas, Moberly, and Appleton City, rere called upon. I have just returned from Bismarck Grove to night where I have just closed the speed ring entries which are the largest and best ever made out side f St: Lonis not even excepting Kan sas City. Capt. Stevens was also seen and in general terms expressed himself very jubilant over the outlook, "we have 4he largest and best entries in every department ever made in central Mis souri. Our mineral, fine art, and other displays will come from every jWt of the state.

The other day, (Friday), they had a lively scrap over some bean pole. Fred, can stand a good deal from George, but when he was accused of stealing some of George's old, crooked and rotten bean poles, all the fight in him was aroused and he pitched inio George. They were both coatless, ha less and shoeless, and are pretty well matched physically, so the fight was a vigorous one and lasted until both were nearly exhaus ted. While they stopped t ) take a rest, a bright idea hit George, and he lit out for Squire Howard's to have Fred arrested. He had a pretty good start when the fact dawned on Fred's mind what George was up to, and he started after him. Then ensued the greatest barefooted race ever recorded until now. The distance to Squire Howard's is about three mile ; the time they made is guessed at fiiteen minutes ; but George got there first. The result was that both were ar rested and fined 81 and costs A Forgery.

The latt method is to ue explosives and at tempt to destroy the property oi the com pany. An attempt which might have in volved tile loss oi life has just occurred. A lew moments before 12 last night James Calvin, night operator, wa sitting in the signal tower of the Lake Shore Company at the intersection of Main and the stock yard tracks. His little room was tilled wi.h blinding smoke which almost suffo cated him. Calvin STARTED TO R1SH DOWN STAIRS t3 investigate when a deafening explosion took place, and at that moment Calvin saw the figure of a tall, slender man dart away from the building. Calvin was thrown to the ground with extreme force. A number of tools were lifted from the floor and crashed through the windows. A search The Hospital.

The jells of men and screams of women were deafening. The report spread and people for miles around hurried to the bloody scene The wounded men were taken to residences and doctors summoned. The wounds of Martin and Jrchard are pro nounced fatal. The greatest excitement prevails over the tragedv which ended in so much bloodshed. All the participants belong to excellent families. They were all raised at Summerville and vicin ity and havt been playmates and friends all their lives Jerrie Orchard is the brother of James Orchard, one of the lead ing lawyers and politicians of South Mis souri.

Fristoe, a prominent farmer living north of this city, has been peculiarly unfortunate recently in the loss of two of his most valuable horses, and to cap the climax in the horse business, yesterday two of his gentlest old mules, hitched to a light spring wagon took fright on the cor ner of Second and Osage streets and ran away. They ran to Main, and down Main to near Rembaugb's mills, where a brave fellow jumped into the middle of the road and, at the rish of his life, stopped them. Not a particle of damage was done. Police Court. Two plain drunks and the continued case of Annie Miller, constituted the whole of his honor's docket yesterday. The plain drunks were Peter Roach and Charles Johnson. They received the regulation price, $5.

Boynton: Supreme Record Keeper. As an evidence of the stability and substantial character of the order, the following is submitted : William Brill, one of the above character mem!ers and who was well known in this citv, died August 11th last, after a membershipof six months at a cost for dues of about $7, and yesterday his wife received a check for $2,MJ0, the full amount of his policy, and would have had it even earlier but for the fact that the papers were not made out in proper shape, through the ignorance of the officers rom lack of experience, and the members of the order, as a unit, de sire to return their acknowledgments and to bear testimony of the prompt ness an 1 careful diligence of the su preme tent and they most cordially invite those desiring a certain, safe and cheap endowment, as well as the best features of a benevolent organi zation, to join them in carrying on the good work. Rodrich Gallie, Commanders. Tbe Body of a Dead Woman Found Packed in a Trunk At Toledo. It is Called for by E. Wilson Who is Arrested and Held. Toleco, O., Sept. 11. This forenoon a trunk arrived by the Wheeling and Lake Erie railway from Belleville; which ex hided so horrible an odor as to drive the baggageman from his post. It was placed on the platform ard the police authorities notified. Soon after their arrival E. Wil son who had come from Belleville on the Lake Shore railway arrived with a dray and presented the check for the trunk. He was immediately arrested and the trunk opened, when it was found to contain the body of a woman packed in hay. Wilson an the trunk were taken to the police station where the coroner ex amined the bodv. It was that o! a woman of about 10 years of a, 3 much emaciated and partly dressed in under clothing of the tine t quality. Wilson is a school teacher of Ithaca, N. Y., and was last winter a stu dent of the Toledo Medical college. He i held on a charge of grave robb ry. He re fuses to talk. SPURTING NEWS. shattered all the glass front of the house. Thirty-four battery "ells were broken and the whole system utterly ruined. It will take thousands of dollars to repair the damage. When daylight came another search was made for more explosives. In a little shed at the rear of the tower, a bundle supposed to contain another explo sive, was picke 1 up. It was wrapped in , paper. Ii was removed to the town hall. The outward bound passenger train was ; due at the town a few minutes after the ex plosion. "The theory is that the wrecker hoped TO BLOW IT TUE TOWER when the passenger train came along, and it wouldahave plunged into a mas of freight cars that were on the side tracks. Last night about 8 o'clock lhe Lake Shore road received from the Illinois Central tr;un, twenty-eight cars. While these were being taken over the Road street crossing the switch was thrown after about half the cars had passed, causing a general wreck. About midnight John Fagen, an ex -switchman of the Lake Shore railway was ar rested at Forty-third street just as he was about to throw a switch. A MISSOURI TRAGEDY.

The Matamoras, Texas, correspondence of the Ghbe-Demo-erat telegraphs to-night that advices re ceived there to-day state that the Revolu tionists, 150 strong, under Manvill Cruse were overtaken by troops under Cols. Her. nandez and Bavazos near El tars, 15 miles np the country and signally defeated with a heavy loss in killed and wounded and thirty prisoners. The loss of the troops was light. The government is taking prompt measuree and will send here the seventh infantry. The First cavalry and a corps of the Farmers' Rural guards from the City of Mexico, lhe revolutionists, who are directed, it is reported by Gen. Martinz, of this city are said to to be a disorderly and undisciplined horde of bandits who have frequent tight among thems Ives and no unity of action among the officers in the command. The rout and dispersing of Cruzes' forces will probably give the movement a fatal blow. Canada Cheek. New York, Sept. 11.

Night before last at a farm house near .Summerville, twenty-one miles south-west of Houston in this county, occurred one of the worst tragedies known in the criminal annals in this section. It originated os follow: Last Saturday at the Summervilie base ball grounds a game was in progress when violent dispute took place between Jere Orchard and Kiley Martin, each a member of the opposing clubs. Friends inter)toeed and prevented a serious termin ation of the quarrel. Day before yesterday a "corn cutting'' was given at the residence of a farmer named George Keed. An old-fashioned dance was to follow at night. Most f the members of the rival clubs were pre- nt, and during the day THE LITTLE BROWN Jfi; received many fervent kisses from the gal lant coru cutters. These frequent commu nion with tbe jug had no tendency to sr..a me wings oi penect peace over the many communicants. The day's work be ing concluded and a wholesome feast dis I posed of, the musicians began to coar the riddles, and scon merry dancers began to rlit and flutter about through the atmos phere. The dance was in full blast hen brawling cries in the front yard threw all into wild confusion. The old dispute which took place at the ball ground between Orchard and Martin, was revived between Kilev Marti n and em McCaskell. They were about to come to blows when OKI HARD APPEARED on the scene and espoused the cause of McCaskell. At the interference from his old foe of the ball ground, Martin drew his pistol and snapped three times on an empty cartridge at Orchard's breast. The latter fled and Martin pursued him for a few paces when Orchard suddenly wheeled about, drew his pistol and fired three shots in rapid succession. Two of the balls shat tered Martin's right arm and as he wheeled to fly another struck him below the left shoulder blade passing transversely through the body and coming out at the right. At this juncture JameaStogsdale,a f r end of Martin s, came up behind Orchard, lev eled his pistol and fired. The ball ranged through the body and came out at the right A Stand Collapsed.

Immediately following this shot Lewis Kai :er, a druggist of Summerville, a n m of herculean strength, pushed his way to the prostrate form of Orchard to L re vent further trouble, when Stogsdale yelied out : "G d d n you, I will give you the benefit of a shot."
