He was a soldier, and afar On Mexic's well-fought field, He bravely won the riiiht to wear A hero's shining saield. And tho', perchance, mistaken when He led rebellious bent.

THE PltOWLER Koceives Some Letters and Gives a Little Advice .Concerning Christ sias Presents. A certain gentleman who is some what of an epicure rem irked to the Prowler a few days ago, "ordinary people fo not kaow how to eat oysters or lettuce. A' either should be cut or punctured. The minute this is done, you allow to escape just the pans that make them especially attractive and delicious to the palate. " The Prowler thought to himself that a m m would not present an attractive spectacle cramming a leaf of lettuce, almost as large as a cabbage leaf, in his mouth, without cutting it but agrees with the epicure concerning the oysters. Aprc pos of eating. One of the curiosities of life to the Prowler is that so few men know how to eat. By this is meant, not alone the kind of viands men eat, but the way in which L.iry eat. Nearlv aU men understand ie etiquette well enojgh, but ItVy pat voraciously, Jick the platter as it were, and havft a sort of a pic-n-tk bar barism about ip em which lo a lady born and breu ziiizi ex. ceediugly offensive. Indeed the Prowler wonders how any woman of refinement could see a man eat day after day and not feel a trifle disgust ed. The Prowler is in receipt of the following letters. The first will cause some woman some uneasiness and :s as follows : Dear Prowler: Please put ths in your column. There is a married mau past:og himself off for a sn;le man aud who is calling regularly on a lepulable young lady living on Fifth street. He has a wife ?id one child in a neighboring city, has a black mustache, dresses well and in good test's but is a scoundrel from away back and Ihe girl ought to know it." The other letter is lke a g'impse of heaven after the above, and reads: Mr. Fcowler, Deer Sir: 1 am a Jitiie gurl and am so poor, and so ia mama and she says maybe wou'd the good ladies get a doUy from Sauly Klaus for me,I never had a do'ly, on ly a rag one my popper was so sck before he went away to heven and ma has not got his funeral prd for or else she would get me a doily she says. I have to stay in the house a' I day because I am too little to go to school if I had some close and I do want a dolly. P. S. Benny who lives on our street wilte3 this for me and I think it i9 nice in him don't you Mr. Prowler? Your n-end Luci'. The Prowler fixed Benny and Lucy's joint prod action up a little, but he has no means of lev- :ng 'ie "good ladies" know how they are to find Lucy and hence s afraid fhe will not get her "dolly." A gentleman in conversation with the Prowler a few days ago said: "I noticed that the Prowler referred to a boy in this cty who has saved up $200 out of b3 earnings as a ne. boy. Now I know of a case which while it has not .the same meiit, yel beats anything in the way of a pre cocious boywnich I ever happened upon. He is 11 yea r3 old, son of a friend of nrne, and he shows rjmatk able aptitude for making and ac- quiiiUg'moueyi Not long ago, he joug agu, schcol wi i irrneri uj at 2C0 marbles, which he so d ten for 2 ; ceD's tnd deposed of le entire lot.

When they were baked I he painted each one while, and then striped it. He made fifty cents on the: deal, but failed to go to school for j several day3, as the boys, including his brother, were "laying" for bim. Youug though he is, he proves to be a marvel in mathematics. Until a short time ago, he "worked" his sun 8 very rapidly on bis slate, aud all the other boys copied from him. He soon grew tied of this. Oue day he purposely "worked" a sum wrong. When the other boys had copied it. he turned annul and srot the right answer. When they objected to what he had done, he said ; "Well, if you want the right answer after this you will have to give me a marble ;n and now he is gathering in the little spheres by the dozen. Not long ago he found an old watch, worked with it until he discovered what prevented it working, and then fixed it so that it uld r uu. Now, how is that for a boy, eh ?" The Prowler said that was pretty considerable of a boy, but he doubts whether such precocious 1 ness, unless ceietully guided, does not CUU 1U HI? 1 WIU. The Pnwler has a little advice to give his lady friends in regard to Christmas offerings. Don't buy a mau, a fifty cent handkerckief aud expect a diamond ring in return ; di;n'r be particularly sweet to a man just before Christmas, like the Sun day School pupil who tn'y gels :iround at Christmas, he is 4,on" your little game ; do.n't embroider yourself to death over a pair of slipper nppers, which will cost a mau more than an entirely new pair to have soled, and then will be too little for him ; don't make a lace and ribbon watch case, or a tidy, or a thingamy for his bu reau, men don't care a dumb for such nonsense and most of 'em would rather have a link of bologna sau sage ; don't give a man a hat mark, ho s'ht lose his hat jou know, as did -i fly yocnjr man in this city n c a 1, under embarrassing circun stun-, es, and would have anythiug it pleasant thoughts of you as the c uaof ihe give away inside of it : don't h dis'ii"r.ointed if your "Jeemes Henry' snouM present you with a cl!:jlid io'.ht set in a plush case, because he wot 't know that the thing is men to i. kat and not ht to mnlie uf tore: ui a white curly nog with, and your disappointment will hurt nis ieelinss : don't ive a man don3 an are expensive present unm you rijrnt sure he 13 not paving attention to some other girl, nine chauces in ten he is, and the present you have planned with si much care and forethought will serve as a means for the other srirl to have the laugh on you; don't run your coap' iojdebt for presents for your best fellow ; tne old man might "cut up and make a fu-s and set the dog near the front door the next tme "he'' came and there would be a jireat and overwhelming denouraent it the dog shopM be itching around its teeth, and fina'ly don't get the Prowler a present, he Js just out of money and can't give anything iu return but his blessing wh'ch won t go far toward adding to you- cPection of "trophies from suck- e rs. vou know.

Freight Cars BadJy Needed for Carrying Away Grain and Other Freight. IteniB of Interest. Picked Up By Bazou Decectives Local Topeka, Kan., December 14. Several prominent railroad men are here en deavoring to devise means for the purpose of supplyiug freight cars, which are wo fully needed to carry away the great bulk of freight lying at ail the great traffic points awaiting transportation. All of ihese geatlemen stale that never before has there been such a demand for freight cars. Every car owned i3 in use, with the addi tion of cais that could be borrowed, bought or Jiaprovised for the traffic. Never haa there been so much freight ia transit and so great a bulk awaiting transportation. It is not uncommon to see ordinary flat cars boarded up for the transportation of wheat. More corn is now in transit than was ever known be fore. CROWDED AT ST. JOSEPH. St. Joseph, Mo., Dec. 14. The diflerent lines of railway centering in this city are very badly pressed for the cars witn which to move the immense quantities of grain offered for shipment. The elevators along the line3 are crowded, and in many places lecal grain dealers have been forced to suspend receiying as they can not gen cars to ship away the stuff. Along the line of the Burlington & Missouri Kiver there has been great complaint amonz shippers owing to this fact, and although the road has done everything possible to meet the demand, their facilities are not equal to the occasion. To-day seven extra trains were sent out on that line from this city to the west with empiies. SPIKES. Mr. Charles J. Pickering, the present rate clerk in the freight department of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas railway, which position he has filled most efficient ly and acceptably for some time past, has been promotsd and appoiuted to the posi tion of chief clerk in the freight depart ment of that road. He takes his new po sition to-morrow. To Form fin Association. The ex-confederates of Sedaiia and of Pettis county are requested to meet this evening at 8 o'clock at the office of Col. T. P. Hoy, in the Blair build ing, for the purpose of organizing an ex-confederate association in Central Missouri. At this meeting, the final steps in the matter of the memorial services to be held next Sunday at Wood's opera honse will be taken, As the arrangements for that gathering are about complete, but little time will be occupied for this purpose. The main business of the meeting will be the formation of the association, as first stated. The other night, at Bonner's res taurant, about twenty-five of those present at the meeting to adopt a tribute ot respect to the memory of the great Southern Chieftain, signed their names to the list, and it is ex pected that all of these as well as all others in sympathy will attend to night, and assist in forming a society which shall be of benefit to all ex confederates and their families.

(Special to the Bazoo) No verdict has been returned in the Cronin case bv the jury which re tired at 4 o'clock Friday afternoon, and it is not likely any will be returned to-mor row. It begins to look like a hung jury. The general opinion here is no verdict wiU be reached. A DESERTED WIFE. Who Arrives It Sedaiia With Eighty Cents and a Baby. On the train from Boonville this morning came a young cheaply dressed woman, carrying a very pret ty boy baby, a nursing bottle and a gripsack. She debarked from th& train and went into the ladies waiting room, where she made inquiries for the Sisters of Charity, saying that the desired to put her boy in their charge to be taken care of while she worked for it and her own support. She was directed to Depot mas ter Carnes, who informed the woman that the women she asked for, were not that kind of sisters, and did not care for babie3, as far as he knew at all. The in formation had a verv depressing ef feet on the traveler. To a Bazoo reporter, she told her story. Her name isMrs. Nellie Blai?, and she has been living in Boonville for some time. Her husband, whose name is John Biair, left her four months ago, and she has not seen or heard of him since. The deserter left her one dollar when he flitted to part3 unknown. About a month after her husband's depart uri her baby was born, and since that event, whenever she was able, she worked at whatever she could find to do. Wages are not high iu Boonville, and Mrs. Blair determined to leave the place. Af.er buying a ticket and a few little nec esiaies for the trip, she started, and arrived in Sedaiia at 9 o'clock, her entire earthly possessions being the baby, (an exceediogly pretty child, eighty cents in money, a leather va lise and the aforesaid bottle. Mrs. Carnes directed Mrs, Blair to hunt up Officer Phil Kelley, the la3t named being especially sue cessful in getting people out of trouble and assisting them on their way to something to do. The result of the matter was not known when this was written. Officer Kelley could afford the dis tressed woman no assistance or en couracement and she is still at the depot, in the waiting room.
