TUS SBDAUA WEEKLY JiAZOa JANUARY 7, 1890.
FITTER FOR MISSOURIANS, A Demand That the Agricultural College be Eemoyed From Columbia. Hon.' J. JEL JBothwell of thi3 city contributes a long and ;ao excellent article to Ue last issue of the Kansas O'lylive S ock Indicator regaraing theneceBsity of a removal of the slate Agriculturrl ollege from Columbia, a matter la which all Hissourians are interested. The Indicator says, ed itorially, concerning the ariicle: c'The attention of our Missouri readers is called this week to a com munication from the pen of the Hon. J. H. Bolhweli of Sedalia, bearing on the Missouri Agricultural College and Farm. There is certainly food fer thougl- in this communication, emanating as it does from the pen of a rising young statesman of unboubted integrity, who has the courage of his vconviciione." j The following are some extracts from the art'cle : Some months ago j promised to write for the Live Stock Indicator an article iD regard to the Missouri agri cultural college and farm, and will now proceed to give an outline of my iews on the subject. In the first place, I wish to express my approval of the position ot tin Live tttock Indicator and other agri cultural journals, in calling attention to the present and past deplorable condition of the college and farm, and in urging the importance of changes for the better. Too much cannot be aaid or written on this subject. It is rAf- riA far rPBp.Viincr ntiAl inn. Rnd ahoald be agitated untill it becomes a "burning issue." Only by such a course can public sentiment be so aroused and directed as to bring about the necessary reforms. I use the words "necessary re forms" with a full appreciation of what they imply. I assert that, in my opinion, it is not only important, but it is necessary, that there he such changes in the organization, location and management of the college and farm, as will amount to tne most radi cal reforms and reorganization. The The future usefulness of the college and farm for all the giat purposes for which such institutions may prop erly be maintained at the public ex pense requires that there be a re moval and complete rebuilding of the institution. It is. unnecessary to call attention to the depressed and discouraging con dition of agricultural pursuits in Mis souri, and to the pressing need that exists for such knowledge of new methods and processes as will give success and courage to the great army of farmers, and prosperity to all classes. If they fulfilled the purpoo .and promise of their existence, would not the state agricultu al college ana farm be leading factors in solving some of the great problems with which our people are to-day confront ed ? What great good has resulted to the farmers, or to the people in general, from the v&st sums of money that have been expended on these Jfiititutions ? "What have they done in the past, and what do they promise for the future ? By act ot congress, approved July 2, 1862, 330,001) acres of land were donated to the state of Missouri, on the condition that the state provide colleges for the benefit of agricultural and mechanic arts. To the income from that vast sum so provided," there has been more recently added an an nual congressional appropriation of $15,000, for the support of an agri cultural "Experiment Station,' and these funds have been further in creased by large appropriations from the state treasury. What munificent donations of the people's lands and moneys, made in the name of agriculture, for the ele vation and advancement of the great man of toiling husbandmen! And where are the mighty results that the pasting years have brought forth? What can be shown as the fruits of this surpassing bounty ? I ask you to find the answers in the reports to which I have referred ; or to visit the so-called "farm" near Columbia (which land was contributed by Boone coun ty,) and there read the answers in the condition of the fields and college, and in the ashes of that famous "barn." All over the state there is a desire for information on this subject, and that desire ought to continue and grow greater until it is fHly satisn 1. The people ought to be informed of the condition and income of 4 ha ":g ricultural and mechanical and," and of the uses to which the Income of . le fund and aH s'ir'hr ijnds have 1 1 J L 4- oeeii appiieu ju tue pau As to the fujre, I have a few word3 to add before closing th:s c:i cle, wfc:ch seems already too loog. I advoeV the -wtroval of tne col lege from its present location, at is separateion from the TJniver j. Reorganize and build anew ! In no other way can the mistakes and worgs of the past be effectually overcome, and the collage and farm made of great and lasting benefit to the state. But I am toM that through all future time the college and ;rm must renahi where they are now located, and all the bounty of the slate and nation must be there expended re gardle3s of the purposes or results of such bourne, mere y because Booue county anu Columbia contributed some acres of tb i land and a few thousands of dollars, iu order to se cure the location there of the college and farm. I say, away with such r .sor ing ! The nation's gifts to our people must not he frittered away,and the education and higher training of the com'ng farmers must not be sac rificed, because of any such miscon ception of law and logic. The an- swer to such objections and arguments can be found, and the people will finally claim and enforce their rights-. CONDITIONS OF SUCCESS. , Bow to encounter the "Cold World" om j Its Own Terms. It is never a welcome business to 1 cool the enthusiasm and correct the untutored Jancies or young persons who have attained their majority and are about to enter 'the world." The aggregation passing under the phrase we have put in quotation marks will soon enough teach its own harsh 'but wholesome lessons. Those who have been hardened by innumerable trials will not be over-patient with ro mantic id ess and incapable perform ance. The candidate for the world's money j and honors will very toon learn the exacting conditions of success, and the rough discipline to which all are sub jected, without regard to age or sex. In the main there is little favor shown. Even position obtained by in fiuence can not long be retained by in capablee. No business can stand it, and. in time the favored ones find themselves out in the cold. Skill, dili gence, punctuality, method, obedience, patience, perseverance, temperance, veracity and indomitable grit under trial and discouragement are needed. There is no poetry in all this, but the young aspirant may as well know at the outset that this is life and this is the world. Where so many seek bread and shelter and clothing the dreamers will be jostled off the side walk. They may, in the placid refuge of home, weave iridescent tissues of fancy, but in the hurly burly of our American cities cdarser fabrics are needed for wind and weather. A cargo of common sense and resolution may find a market, but fantasies and prattle will fare hard in the rude scramble of the multitude. There is no one who may not profit ably study the process by which Prus sia made herself strong after Jena, and what a nation has done each in dividual must do who aims to win in the great struggle. Weakness must give way to gym nastics of body and mind, and the "world" must be encountered on its own terms. Des Moines Register. ROMANCE OF CHESS. How an Admirer of the Game Discovered the Woman of hA Chsloe. The great game has its tender, its romantic side, as no game can have at which more than two people play. It smiles on lovers and can even be the cause of love. Only a few years ago a chess player condemned to live in the country solaced his solitude by play ing games by correspondence. Post cards daily brought or daily took his move. His antagonist was a lady; be fore the contest was over he had got to know this lady, and their acquaint ance ripened into intimacy, intimacy into love and love was crowned with marriage. And this couple not un mindful of the kindly influence which had brought them together, determined that the very rites of their marriage should "something savor" of the game. So they invited from London a certain clergyman whose genial face "the front of Mars himself" is well known in chess circles; none but a chets player of his eminence should cele brate their union. And when bride groom and bride rose from the wed ding breakfast it was only to sit down to a game of chess the first of their wedded life. Ah! happy, happy pair, under what happy auspices did you start on rhe highway of marriage! What a fine air of romance, of sweet tenderness, lingers round these linea of Lord Lytton: "My little love, do you remember, Ere we were grown so sadly wise, These evenings in tbe bleak December, Curtained warm from the snowy weather When you and I played chess together, Checkmated by each other's eyes? Ah! still I see your soft white hand Hovering warm o'er queen and knight.' And so on to the sad close when the poet laments: That never, never, never more. As in thpse old still nights of yore, Ere we were grown so sadly wise, Can you and I shut out the skies; Shut out the world and wintry weather, And eyes exchaninp warmth with eyes, Play chess as then we played together." -Gentleman's Magazine.

Will Use Copper on His Shoes And Discusses Some Other Matters. The statement that Mary Anderson, is coon to marry, i3 contradicted, and friends say she is more likely to enter a convent, than she is to marry. As an argument in this direction, it is re ported that she .-ecently scrubbed the floor in one of tbe hospitals i i Lon don as an .act of humility. Mary's marriage may never 'tke pce, it is hardly likely that it will, and sure'y she will be much happier without that' nondescript individual, who usually hgures as the husband of an actress, but she might have given a better ex ample of humility tban by scrubbing a floor; she might haye come to St. Louis and given the newspapers a chance to roast her again. The Prowler attended a ball re cently which reflected credit on all concerned with one exception, the management should have been more careful regarding the individuals to whom they sold tickets, The Prowl er's attention was called to a person present who had brought with him a lady ? friend with whom his name has for some time been connected and who has thus earned for himself social oftrmciim. Possibly it is true that there were other people present whose conduct would as iliy bear inspection as the parties alluded to, but in this c&Fe there in an open and shameless defiance of public opinion which de serves rebuke and which on the night uf the ball in question ought to have received attention from the ball's management. It is something to know, however, that the shameless fellow who thus attempted to force recognition for himself and 'friend" did not succeed in doing so, but on the contrary received the cold shoul der from ue&rly all present. "Do you see those large copper brads in the sole of my shoes?" asked a gentleman to The Man About Town of the St. Louis Republic, as he held up to view the sole of his shoes. On being assured in the affirmative, he said : "To those simple brads alone I attribute my present good health. For years I was an invalid, subject to dyspepsia, neuralgia, headache and other innumerable pains, and traveled the country over in search of health. In traveling out west, among the In dian tribes, I was struck with their remarkable health, and especially their exemption from the maladies that afflict me ; and also with the fact that the strongest and healthiest went barefooted altogether. I sought an explanation of the matter, and by continued observation and study was Anally led to tne conclusion that the aches and pains to which civilized man is heir are owing to the manner in which we insulate our bodies from mother earth. Science is every day more clearly demonstrating that electricity is the vitalizing constituent of our bodies, and that this globe of oars is a mighty battery, contin ually generating and discharging electricity. Now, I reasoned, if this . r r j: was correct, tne aecrcb ux iub jluuihu o health was in his bare feet, which exposed his whole body to the vitaliz ing influence of the electrical earth currents ; while my ill health was at tributable to my feet being insulated from these currents. Acting on this hypothesis, I sought to restore the broken connection by inserting thete brads in the soles of my shoes, and the result, I must say. was astonishiag. My feet, which formerly were nearlv always cold, soon became warm and moist ; my health commenced shortly to improve, and in a few months I was entirely relieved of all my paina and have ever since enjoyed good health. It is a' very simple thing and essily tested, and I feel sure would benefit anyone afflicted as l was. Hie Prowler read the above and is now looking out for some "copper brads" with which to "sole" his shoes. He thinks though that while he is about it he will get a band lor tne inside ot his hat and cover over the brass on his cheek with a copper plate. The efficacy of "brass" has Ions; been known and recognized, but if copper is to take its place, the Prowler be lieves in doing the thing up in style. A curious mistake happened to a young society lady in this city a few evenings ago. She was getting ready to attend a party and to enhance the beauty of her complexion, especially Ler neck anu arms, she hastily grip ed up a bottle of what sue supposed was a 'liquid preparation of powder and without nausine to be sure what it was, she poured it on a bit of cha mois and suon had herself well cod ed. Seme how she thought the stuff didn't feel as usual, but she did not py much attention until it began to hum . i . -. , and tnen she discovered tnat in s a bottle which contained a preparation of white lead and carbolic acid, which 1 had been used as a bug exterminator, J 1-' T- 1. J t - powder the young lady wns wont to use. Applic .tions of milk and sweet on sept tne acid irom caus ing anything worse than a 1 1 a. .1 1 r pteity badly burned spidermis, bi'j the young lady did not go to the party, and in future will shake, smell and perhaps taste the contents of her powder bottle before using it. A couple of boys aged about 16 years related to the Prowler a funny incident which they witnessed a few nights ago while strolling: on rum streer. a. certain young lady w?s receiving: a call from her lover, and forgetting to put the blind down, they were indulging in a little osculatory performance which is pardonable between lovers only, but which never requ: 'e3 an au dience. The boys gazed and dodged down and snickered and finally when the lover had let himself loose on a kiss which threatened to engulf the gin, one oi tnem could stand it no longer, but shouted in a tone loud enough for even the enraptured lovers to near "Mellow illy, have you seen McGinty?' It is needles3 to say that tne blind went down immediately and tne boys did nt hnd the celebrated Mr. McGinty at that house. How's This !

Oilier Developments Likely to Follow. From ap -arances there i3 not that degree of amity among the interested parties concerned m the recent Math r ... ewa-iiiaye3 inarne tnat the item in ;yesterday s r3uel of the Bazoo wouia seem to indicate. The state- meat as published was given in detail to a reporter of ttrs paper by Mr. Matthews himself and was substan tially ju3t as if 2ited. Last evening Mr. Mayes, brother- in-law or Mr. MalthewB, c?lled at this omce and said that he would be au thonty lor the statement that the reporl of peace reiening supreme in both households and serenity the most complex prevailing, was not true in any particular. Mrs. Mayes, the mother of tbe bride, was not satisfied by any means with the action of the young couple, in getting married, neither was she pre pared to receive Mr. Mathews as a son-in-law. She left on the 6:15 train last evening for Girard, Kansas, where her daughter staying and the object of the visit was to ascertain if proceedings could be instituted whereby the aspect of matters could be changed. Mr. Mayes said his sister was under age when the ceremony was per formed and as is known, so constat was obtained irom her mother. Mr. W. W. Johnson, who accom panied Mr. Mayes, said that the facts regarding the dismissal of Mathew from hii position in the hotel lid never been given, tbe true rea:ont being withheld ' to- shield him. He was discharged, it was said, for incompetency r d con duct unbecoming a gentleman in a general sense, xie had failed to dis cbarge his duties as night clerk when employed at the hotel, and in other ways had made himself obnoxious. The young couple were married in Kansas and the laws of that state are very strict regarding the age of the contracting parties, and the consent of parents or guardians. The marriageable age in tnat state is 18 year? Miss Mayes was under 17. What the outcome ot the matter will be is of course hard to predict, but it will be looked forward to with nterest. The bride a relatives are very much incensed over it, and seem determined to effect a separation. The much talked of Mathews-Mayes marriage, we are glad to state is as ar as feelings between tne maternal and interested parties on both sides are concerned, have been amicably setteled. Mrs. Mayes the mother of the bride returned ast night on the 11:30 train from Girard, Kansas, accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. Mathews, and were met at the depot by oar. Mathews, the son-in-law, who saw to their baggage, and all took the Le Grande "bus to he hotel. A Bazoo reporter saw Mrs, Mayes ater and in regard to the trouble that had existed the lady had little to say. It was, however, very evident that a com- Diete reconciliation had been effected. Mrs. Mayes said that her daughter and son-in-law would most likely stay with her for the immediate future, as she did not want Lillian to leave her. The presumahiHties are that ami- cabilitv and peace will reien supreme in the 'household and the Bazoo ten ders its congratulations on all sides.

The question as to whether ther sh&ll be a base ball club in tbe city during next season is being agitated by quite a number of the lovers of the- game at present, although it is a lit tie early. A Bazoo reporter saw quite a num ber of gentlemen yesterday, who take delight in the pastime on the diamond, and every one expressed themselves as dr adedly in favor of Sedalia having at least one first class club. There are a number of excellent players here. sua a selection could be made that would result in the formation of a nine that would reflect credit on the town. Of last years H. K. & T. sine, there are here those two giii-edged pitchers, Tyler and Stryker, Dewey, the 2nd baseman, Hewell, 3d baseman, Tan ner, whe played Tight field and sev eral good men of the old oedalia mae. We han as good grounds 'here as there are in the State, and there are at least 600 people in the city who wonld enjoy attending the garnet.
