It is of very little ue to meet oar neighbors dav after da and lament the depression in business and low : es. The hard times are here, and have come to stay, unless we drive thn . away by a more intelligent appli cation of our labor, and engage in some br;. -h of farming ujon which we can pi more dependence than upon the hop -rop, for instance.

Cncaoo, III., June 10. Manager SedaHa Bazoo: In my lonely retreat, here in this great city, I frequently see the Bazoo and possessing my share of Mother Eve's curiosity, made it a special study to find out who wrote the evil aud unsavory articles, over the signa ture of 'A. K. B.," and have been re warded for ray trouble. I am sur prised that he takes the abuse you throw at him so meekly, for a man who will use his profession to ruin in nocent women, is a coward at heart. After many days my praver is answered and I can heap coals of fire upon the head, without a heart, of "A. on I Iv Kl nnn I rana vro. an m m rr. VU 1 1 V U I V M. A 1 UUO TVa?

In Esquire Halsted s court yester day, Charles Ross was brought up for resisting an officer and fined $20. It seems that he was in a saloon in East Sedalia, and got into a squab ble with the barkeeper. A police officer dropped in with a state warrant for Ross just about the time, and im mediately there was a good-sized fracas erected, in which the police man and his locust and Ross played three leading parts. The warrant which the policeman attempted to read charged Ross with the larceny of a watch and chain from James Rain, on Thursday. Before the ave; age, and other crops in proportion, K.

His subordinates have not only recognized his ability as a railroad manager but also he has made them personal friends by his considerate and thought ful treatment. In view of this therefore a large number of them concluded last night that they would give, as a pleasan surprise, a banquet in bis honor and a com mittee of arrangements selected the park as a fitting place. The banquet was laid in a most attractive inau ner aud the menu was an ample one. The address by J. C. Jennings com mercial agent for the Missouri Paci fic was eloquently worded, although briefly prepared, as he explained, aud was as follows. Superintendent Drake, Sir : - - We, a few of the great many employes of the Missouri Pacific rail road, have assembled here to-night for the purpose of spending a short Jones, two years ; Walter Pritchard, three years, and B. F. Morey, two years and three mouths. The dynamiter was William Matti er. who used dynamite on a neighbor's house and nearly killed the whole family. He goes up for three years.

The farm will foreclose its mortgage and the ocenpant be compelled to leave. If we expect to enrich our farms we must not allow any thing that will enrich them to go to waste. Good farming the dregs of that remorseful act, caused by none other than the hypro crite who signs himself "A. K.

Mrs. A. gaged in a controversy with Ross, and then before the thing was over, a couple of shots had been fired by the affair, and the guardian of the law was struck over the left eye with the locust which had been wrenched from the policeman's hand by Ross. The officer brought his man to time, at last, and lodged him in the county jail. The docket in 'Squire Halsted's court show that Ross was fined $20 for resisting an officer, 50 for ex hibiting a deadly weapon to Pat rick Sullivan in a threatening man ner, and for the larceny, he is bound over in $500 to appear before the next criminal court. He is in jail, now. 1 j W M 1 tiiiiv ro me son 10 nave productiveness. This can not be done in a hap-hazard, neglectful manner, but will require cloi-e, intelligent watch over all the de tails of the farm. The man who suc ceeds in doing this will stand foremost among the farmers in his vicinitv. To manure well and then to cultivate poor ly is a waste of manure "good tillage is manure.1' How shall we make more manure? It is an old saying: "There is a great difference in ginger," which applies to manure also. Well-fed ani mals make rich manure; poorly-fed do not Feed your hogs hay and the manure will be no better than from Almost An Accident. What came near proving a serious accident occurred last night at the corner of Osage and Broadway. Con tractor Rippey has been digging a trench at that point for the purpose the cow fed upon hay. Well-fed ani- of inserting fire plugs and not com mals insure rich manure; rich manure, ! pleting the work last night, the usual large crops: large crops, overflowing signal lamp was hung out but which barns; overflowing barns, a remedy for hard times. Much is said about rotation of crops. The rotation just mentioned can be heartily recommended. Let the farmer keep this up for a term of years, and he will have something he can call his owft, and not be in debt to his farm. Manure not under shelter, the sooner it is drawn to the field, spread evenly, j this juncture, Judge Baker drove up pwcu uiiuei, me ae. j m a buggy and before he could be have large barnyard extending out warned, drove his horse directlv into on the highway for an eighth of a mile the trenchf which 0f course overturn or more, stock turned out from early Lj .u k.,. k ;..a I DC.

Downs were driving by the trench and not observing it by the obscure light until nearly in it, they hastily jerked their team, a pole one, to one side and struck a post, causing them to break both whiffle trees. Just at morning to evening this is not a pru dent use of manure. Yet there are farmers who complain of poor crops and hard times. The present condi tion of things will not change because men do not think well of the situation; this will be of no avail. Prices of farm products are low; we can not raise them by holding our individual crops; we are not masters of the situation in this respect; but we can economize in many ways and not be injured in mind or body for it, and in this way maka income and expenses meet more easily. To hang around the village street or country store, day after day, and say to your neighbor: "These are hard times I never saw any thing like it there are some that will have to go under" this may all be true, but tha question that needs attention is how to raise better crops of all kinds at lesa expense. When some butter sells al fifty cents per pound, let us ask: "How eaa we produce an article of equal merit ?M The average dairy cow pro duces less than four thousand pounds of milk per year; there are individual eows giving twenty thousand pounds per year. Every farmer has a right to own a cow of as great usefulness, ana1 it is ais duty to strive to have one. Instead of bewailing the hard times, let as get our neighbors together and diaeuss a few new departures, which it is possible and profitable for us to make, and we shall be on the road t more general thrift and prosperity.

The moral, if there is one, would be to put more lights at fire plug, or other trenches. Transfers. W. F. Hansbeifer and Mary O., his wife, to W. J.

Bazoo: A smailband of hum ble, earnest christiaus, have been for some time in our citv and have di rectly and indirectly done much good as part of their methods to gather an audience and perhaps also to increase the enthusiasm of their followers they have given several short street parades with the music of their choos ing and singing the songs used in their services; this has been taken a the opportunity by those op posed to them to assail them with jibes, jeers, the blowing of horns, beat ing of pans and ringing of bells by the hoodlums of the place, incited, aided and abetted by toughs of ma ture growth, and also, sad to say, by some good citizens, who seem to be moved by a bitteu and unreasoning prejudice against this people ; finally the authorities of the town on last evening arrested six of them, princi pally women, as disturbers of the peace. Now as a legal proposition, this charge may be true or false, but the animus of the thing is clearly shown, by the fact that in my 22 years residence in this citv. no socie ty, social, political or religious ; no theatrical troupe, base ball club, or advertising scheme of any kiud has been prevented from marching our streets, with banners and music, instrumental or vocal, and while the members of the Salvation Army were arrested as peace disturbers, the par ties in opposition, who were making a din too horrible to describe, and actu ated by malice alone, were allowed to go scot free. I do not claim that their religious character should piotect them in an illegal act, nor thair belief that they were doing God's service, but it seems clearly that if any party should have been as a warning or example, it should have been those who were ac tuated by pure malice and the grati fication of private grudges, and not those whose motives were good, what ever the outcome of their acts may be. W. It is a remarkable fact that, al though we have in this country the best breeds of cattle to be found in any portion of the globe, yet the majority of farmers have no system of breeding, and use cows in the dairy that give only one-third the quantity of milk and butter that could be derived from an animal from well-known milking and butter bleeds.

Dry quarters are essential to the thrift of young chickens. We learned that vou had tendered your resignation as our superintend ent. Simultaneous with said intelli gence, we are also apprised of the fact that you will change your residence to an eastern city, there to resume ac tively your labors and achieve further success and reputation in the chosen field of your ambition. We regret this decision on your part which causes this company to lose an invaluable officer and manager. Knowing that you have worked well and faithfully, aud also realizing that iu the highest and broadest signifi cance of the term vou have achieved SF acknowledged success , we who have been your subordinates and employes in the service, with a strong and universal sentiment, de-ire here and now to express to you personally, our great respect and esteem for you as a superintendent, friend andj counsellor in all the relations incident to the vast business of our system. You have never failed or refused to act the illustrious part of a consid erate friend and gentleman. We ad mire your ability which has enabled you, although a comparatively young man, to reach so rapidly and deserved ly the high and responsible position you are about to assume in railroad management. We appreciate your success and earnestly hope that you will go onward and upward through life, surrounded by zealous friends, crowned with health and good for tune. May heaven bless you in all your undertakings is the wish of all here to-night.w Mr. Drake responded briefly to the honor conferred upon him and referred to.the pleasant relation which had al ways existed between himself and his subordinates in a most feeling manner. He also wished for those about him, success in whatever field their duties called them and said that he would take with him to ms new position many pleasant recollections, of not alone this occasion, but of many pleasant associations in his work here. Mr. Jennings then proposed a standing toast to Mr. Drake's future prosperity and happiness which was enthusiastically drunk and which was followed by brief addresses and toasts from others in the party. Altogether the affair 'was well ar ranged and carried out, and was en. joyable to all concerned. There were about forty-five guests present, among them being, division superintendents, conductors, engineers and other rail way officials and employes. The su- Serintendeots were represented by lessrs. Clarke, Dal by, Flanders, Welch, Parke, Lyons, and others; the conductors by Messrs. Fitzgerald, Merri field, Moore, Nicl terson and Neiley; the engineers, by Messrs. Fitzgerald, Lister, Fitzpatrick, Vedder, and others and there were also present Messrs Perry, Jones, Bartlett, Weller, Hun ting as was said before about forty five in all. Superintendant Drake left last night for Ohio and with him goes the good wishes of all. Children's Deaths The mortality among children yes terday and Friday was very marked.

Cucumbers, two for fifteen Friday night the Salvation Army, about a dozen or fifteen strong, left its barracks on Main street and started on its customary parade, prefatory to the usual evening services at Smiths opera house. Of late, a lot of hood lums, armed with tin cans and horns, and other implements of a noisy na ture, have made it their business to escort the Army about the streets. The din, thus evoked, has been, to put it mildly, horrible, and not a tew teams have been frightened into run ning away, endangering the lives of the parties in the vehicles. Complaint has been made to the city authorities in the matter, and Friday evening, about eight o'clock, when the army was passing the police station on Second and Osage streets, Capt. Jackson and several of his officers stopped the procession and summarily forbade the noise. The captaiu, Miss Mclver, remonstrated against the stoppage, saying that the boys were making the most disturbance, and that the army had marched repeatedly without being interfered with. If they, in the course of their march, came across a horse that wa restless, the orders were standing to cease any rataplan on the drum or the tambourines. She believed that her style of re ligious exercises was correct, and she would continue in it. Bv this time, mi there was a large crowd collected, curious to see and hear.

Yesterday morning, Annie Mclver, Katie Mitchell, Sallie Lown, Andrew Allen, A. V. Morrison, and L. 8. Graham were arraigned before Judge Levens, charged with a disturbance of the peace by W. S. Jackson. Col. W. VT S. Snoddy appeared for the army. Among those present as wit nesses were Major Beck, Lewis Deutsch, Bob Morrow, Jacob Zunz, D. H. 6mith, Aleck Kramer, Chris Hye, Isaac Wolf, Andy Gardelle, Billy Peden, J. W. Houx, August Fleischman, A. L. Farnham, Dr. Wood, and others. The Salvation Army was well repre sented, and had many sympathizers in the throng which crowded behind the railway. Col. Sooddy inquired about a trial by jury, aud after considerable dis discussion over points of law with the city attorney and the police justice in regard to the matter, the talk was ended by Judge Levens deciding that he would try the cases without a jury. He would take that responsi bility, for it was his honest opinion that a jury was not necessary. The names of the prisoners were then called, and to each call, Col. Snoddy responded "Not guilty." After some more discussion the cases were continued to next Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock. Missouri Patents.
