It is true, that their credit and re ward will be greater in the end if they hold out faithfully, becau-e of their greater victory which shall make the least the greatest and the last first. But it is due them, it is due Christianity, it is due the glory of God that to him who has been given the greater advantages, the teu talents, that they should be fully exercised and developed in aiding the weaker or the more needing. Hence it is that every christian should lend his aid in establishing this people upon a firm footing and firm basis. The Bazoo is informed that John Lamm has offered to donate a lot for the edifice and $100 towards its construction, Mrs. Dr. Goodwin and a number of others have offered substantial aid towards its construction, and it is certain that if "Happy Adam" and the army will go forward in their simple faith with their efforts they will soon have a suf ficient fund to construct an ample edifice. the southeast ouarter ot section township 45, range 20, be to $220. and that the tax 29, Oman for 1886 t $20.

No More Profane Music. From the Philadelphia Record. The Catholic clergy of this diocese have received orders from Archbishop Ryan to instruct the choirs qf their respective churches that no music not especially written for the church shall be sung at any church service. All operatic music, and many popular compositions whose scores have been adapted to the words of the service, are included and will be banished. A decision in this matter has been expected from the archbishop for several weeks past, and musical cir cles have been on tiptoe for the final word. The decision will materially effect the services of a great number of churches. All the brilliant over tures, sweet interludes and grand choruses thai have become a part and parcel of the church service will be dropped, and the splendidly trained choirs that for years have filled the 'sacred edifices with the lovely melodies and grand harmonies of the masters will devote their art to the interpre tation of plainer and more sacred sub jects that please the simple-minded and devout.

From a gentleman who came jp froni Hickory county yesterday, the Bazoo learns that the citizens of that ?! 55 locality arc jubilant over the pros pect ot a direct railroad couuectiou with Sedalia, early iu the coming spring. They feeling assured that the narrow guage will be widened and extended from Sedalia to Springfield in a very short time. The basis of their faith, the gentleman stated, is the fact that a surveying corps are now laying a line from Springfield to Warsaw on au almost direct Hue via Bolivar. He further stated that he had seen the parties and in conver sation with them leait.ed that thev expected to reach Sedalia via Warsaw in about two weeks and thai the road was to be a part of a line owned and controlled bv the Mis sotiri Pacific svstem, whose southern terminus was to be at Memphis where it wnM connect with a New Orleans line North, it would go as far as Sedalia. but what direction it would take from there he could not learn, but from the best information he could gather it was the intention to make connections or build a new road which would reach north to the lakes somewhere up in Minnesota. The gentleman seemed very sanguine of the rapid and eariy completion of the liue, and from what is known here there is little doubt that his theory and statements are substantially correct. 65 00 38 80 53 75 87 48 73 30 59 00 59 92 56 12 53 60 68 00 Interstate Commerce. Omaha Republican. The President has signed the inter state commerce bill, and it is now the law of the land. All constitutional objections to the bill having been re moved bv its examination the Pres.- mf dent had but the one thing to do sign it. Popular clamor and the overwhelming majority by which Congress referred it to him made his approval incumbent. The law, how ever, at best, is only a venture ; it is an experiment, which, when put to the practical test, will prove that ad ditional legislation will be required before it can be practically useful, or before it can be made to subserve the interests of the people while conserv ing those of the railroads, which it is presumed is the intent of the law. t4wMCfcfld,tfcertodftr to When You Want The Beat Call on Phillip Hahn, manufacturer and dealer in harness, collars, blankets, robes, currycombs, bridles, brashes, saddles or anything in the harness line.

Vils, of Rushville, Mo, to detail what he terms a history of the locating of the capitol in Jeflerson City and an argument in favor of its remaining there, which boiled down, simply is that because the capitol is in Jefferson City and was located there sixty years ago it ought to stay there. W. S. Wells is a carpenter who for merly lived in Jefferson City and left there because; he said, he could not make a liviug there. He is now In cased in rushing little Rushville. Mr. Wells according to his own argument should he in Jefferson City which he left ten years ago, because he came there twenty years aco. traces at home. Mrs. Clow further alleges thU her husbaud taught the children to disobey her and bold hei iu contempt. She asks for the cus tody of the youngest child Mary, and for alimony. Sedalia is making a determined ef fort to secure the removal of the state capital from Jefferson C:ty to the great railroad center in Pettis county. She has filed her boud for $3,000 in the secretary of .-date's office to be de voted to the payment of all expenses of submitting the removal amend ment to a vote of the state. The resolu tion requiriug the removal amendment to be submitted is to be considered next Thursday. It stipulates lhat the amendment if voted is to go into effect in IrttK) ami not then unless the city shall have given a good and sufficient warranty deed to 40 acres of land in the city and shall have paid into the state treasurv the sum of $300,000 to aid in the erec tion of suitable state buildings. Tku is a fair propo-iiion. An appropria tion of $250,000 is asked of the present legislature for the purpose of repairing our present capitol at Jefferson City, and when this much money is spent on the structure it will still a relic of the past ages and wholly inadequate to the uses for which it is put. It has Ml enough offices for the state depart ments. It has no rooms for commit tee meetings. It has no modern con viences, and though it were re pain 1 the city in which it stands would re main an eyesore to every Missourian that has any pride in his state. Com pare our seat of government with that of Illinois or Iowa. Sedalia can be improved and will make a beautiful city in which our visitors will not mf dread to spend a day. How is it at Jefferson? As soon as he was landed, every visitor asks, "When does the next train start'.'" Sedalia will grow aud be some indication of the thrift and enterprise of our state. In the matter of accessibility, Sedalia is far ahead, as every one from North Missouri and South Missouri, too, who has ever had any business in Jeffer son City will be glad to testify. Hanibal Journal. A NEW LEA3 J OF LIFE. W hen one has ieeii utferin; tne agonies of i se vere attack of rheumatism, neural gia r sciatica, and relief comes, it seerus as if a new lease al life had heMi granted. Such have been the feelings ol thousands who, alter trying physicians and number Wm remedies, have used Athlopiins and found to tlieirre.it joy that this medicine really did cure these diseases. At Uhofno, fowa, the druggist say Ath lophoroa he.ts liiem ail. We thought it would le hke many other rheumatic medi cines that have been put on the market, sell for a while then gradually sink out of our memory. But such is not the case with Athl-.phoros, instead of our sales diminishing they increase, and what makes us have more faith in its future mission is that our customers come back and praise its good work in the highest terms. Said one druggist la the writer 4 Mv confidence is so great in Athlophoros that I ofWn sell a hoUle with the understanding that if it is not satisfactory 1 will refund the monev. I have never yet had to pay the money back." Mrs. C J. Alabeck, 1067 Clay Street, Dubuque, Iowa, says : M 1 was sub ject to frequent attacks of inflammatory rheumatism and have been nearly all mv lite, at times I would be almost helpless. When I commenced with the Athlophoros I was carrying my arm in a sling, I could not move my fingers without causing me pain. One evening while sufTerimr this way 1 heard of Athlophoros. The next day I sent for a bottle. I was a little afraid of it at first on account of the buzzing sensa tion it caused in my head, but it worked like a charm, the swelling and the pain were gone, my rheumatism was well. It is now a year and a half, and I have not suffered any since." Every druggist should keep Athlophoros and Athlophoros Pills, but where they can not be bought of the druggist the Athlo phoros Co., 112 Wall St., New York, will send either (carriage paid) on receipt of regular price, which is f 1.00 per bottle for Athlophoros and 50c. for Pills. For liver and kidney disease, dyspepsia, in digestion, weakness, nervous debility, diseases of women, constipation, headache, impnra blood, 4ic., Athlophoros Pills are uneqoakd. 11 PAT ITS PKK1L.

He would not adopt retaliation measures, ami he believes that the trouble can he settled without war. The secretary is correct However much the people may want a war they do not need it for mere vengeance for that would be largely the Ameri can feeling nor would they be bene fitted by a war. When a nation goes to war it is the n asses the common people who have little to gain by war - who become the victims. There is considerable irritation in this country toward England and not a few would welcome war, but in the pending trouble arbitration and not arms should prevail.

Fort Waje, Feb. 9 Ten miles north east of Warsawjust west of here a party of hunters to-day found the mutilated remiins of Perry Dunham near his residence. In bis house, they discovered a little two-year-old girl dead. Mrs. Dunham was alive bat so badly cut as to be insensible, the hois had eaten Dunham's feet and hor ribly mutilated him. Mrs. Dunham has eight wound all made with a kniie. The childs' throat was cat from ear to ear and it lay on the floor some six feet from its mother. The theory of the mur der is that it was done for robbery as a few days ago Dunham sold two hundred bushels of wheat for $120 and some calves for $100 only uine dollars of thia money was fdund in the house.

A crank at 10 oYIock last nijfht while Patti wa. singing, attempted to throw a dynamite bomb or some other explosive on the stage The matter exploded in his hands, .njuring him severely. Although the houe was crowded there was no panic. The police immediately rushed into te gallery and arrested the w; uld-be dynamiter and re moved him to the hospital, where his in juries aie being treated It is supposed he objected to I'attt's high prices. The d:va immediately afterward sang, "Home, Sweet Home," apparently una ware that an attempt had been made on her life. When the bomb exploded a pan ic was narrowly averted. People in the gallery were rushing about seeking the quickest means of exit, and it was only by the self-possession of the newspaper man present in a bo-, coupled with that of the diva, that a stampede of the entire house was prevented. The bouab thrower later said he sto If d to pick up bis hat tnd rane and fouad a package under the seat, which he picket) up and, that as he raised i to see what it was, it exploded. Though he was badly burned about the face and hands it is believe 1 he received no serious injuries.
