A Man With a Big Boll Tries to Work Mayor Stevens. Mayor E. W. Stevens is an early riser, and as a rule, he takes a short walk for exercise every morning be fore he breaks his fast. On Thursday morning when he stepped out on the porch of his residence, at the corner of Quincy and Second streets, he saw a tall, well dressed man sitting on the steps, He was greeted with "good morning, Mr. Mayor!" The mayor asked what the stranger wanted with him, and his early guest proceeded to unbosem himself. He said be was on his way home from California to New York City, and that he had stopped ofi at Denver to take a look at that growing city. In order to see all that was to be seen he hired a horse at a livery stable and drove through the principal thorougfares. While mak ing his tour of inspection the horse (which he ascertained later, was a dangerous animal and would run away at the drop of the bat) became frightened, and ran away, threw him out of the buggy and permanently in jured his spine. He had commenced a 10,000 suit for damages and (he informed the mayor) his lawyers had told him that he would certainly be awarded the amount asked for. To make good his statements he produced from the inside pocket of his coat a number of letters from prominent business men in Denver and Kansas City which stated that the mayora visitor was worthy of assis'ance and would repay such sums of money he might need in order to reach his New York home. Mayor Stevens asked, after reading the letters, what he could do for him. The stranger said he would like to have a sum of money sufficient to procure food while traveling and transportation as far as the mayor could secure it for him. "By the way" the stranger ejaculated, "I have another letter I wish you would read," and reaching around to the hip pocket of his pants he drew forth an ancient document. At the same time a roll of greenbacks as big as a man's wrist rolled out on the porch, the outside bill being of the $20 de nomination. The mayor did not take the letter, but picking up the roll of money he handed it to his visi tor with the dry remark, "I guess this will put an end to your story." The man wilted, grabbed the roll, jumped over the fence and dissappeared. His game failed to work. Beatb ol GoisreMBui Walker. Kansas City, Mo., July 19. Special Congressman James P. Walker, of the Fourteenth Missouri district, died of apoplexy at his home in Dexter, Mo., this afternoon. He was appearently in good health just before being attacked. A congress ional delegation will attend the funeral, for Infants " Caatorla is so well adapted to children that I recommend itas superior to any prescription known to me." H- A. Archer, M. D., Ill So. Oxford St., Brooklyn, N. Y. The Jeweler 314 OHIO STREET. Large and complete stock of Jewelry, Watches, Clocks, Silverware and Eve Glasses. WM. COURTNEY F03i " Oxfords and A. JL. L 228 OHIO Third Street will Probably be Paved. A petition, which has been circula ted during the past two days among the Third street property owners for the paving of that thoroughfare, is being generally signed, The dispo sition manifested in favor of paving that street will no doubt overcome the opposition of a few property own ers and Judge Metaker's declination to pave the part of the street occupied by the street car tracks. Third street from East Sedalia to the Fair Grounds is one of the principal highways of the city, and its present condition, it is a disgrace to Sedalia. Keasons why Bailey's Saxdje Aperient should be used by all classes in preference to all others. It is the oheapest and most reliable purgative ever offered. It has stood the test and gained an enviable reputation wher ever used. It is the only large size aperient that sells at 50 cents per bottle. It acts upon the stomach, liver and bowels, without nausea, griping or any trouble whatever. Its taste is pleasant, its action is mild and never fails. It relieves sick headache, acid stomach and heartburn instantly. If your druggist don't keep it. write J. P. Dromgoole & Co., Louisville, THe Old Dead Town. The Sedalia Bazoo is still hammer ing at the proposition to remove the state capital to Sedalia. The growth of Jefferson City in the past ten years is not a very strong argument in favor of the old dead town, and if it were not for the state buildings already erected at Jefferson City it would not remain the capital very long.

Metsker has consum mated the purchase of two valuable tracts of land, one being the largest real estate transaction made here this year. The purchase comprises, in cluding the park, 153 acres bought of Mr. A. W. Winzenburg, for the snug sum of $17,900, leaving only forty five acres of Mr. W's. farm unsold, and for which a party of capitalists from Kansas City are now negotiating. Judge Metsker also bought an undi vided one-half interest in the fifty acres adjoining, south of the city limits, known as the R. H. Moses tract, at the rate of $300 per acre. A number of other sales are pending, and the Bazoo may safely assert that many thousands of dollars worth of real estate will change hands within a few days. A Fire at Pertle Springs. Parties who came in from the west at midnight reported the burning of the kitchen ot the Pertle Springs Hotel last evening. As to how the fire orignated, nothing could be learned. The loss was small and covered by insurance. A Heavy Bain. Wilbur L. Walden, of the Fayette Advertiser, arrived in the city last night to spend a couple of days with his wife, who is visiting here. He says that it began raining there at an early hour yesterday morning and was still coming down when he left, at 3 p. m. It rained very little south of the river, however. U. S.

The Northern Pacific and the Bal timore & Ohio Railroad Companies are to join hands at Chicago and form a continuous line from ocean to ocean. A purchase of 380 acres in sleep in a cage to keep them from eat Cicero marks the junction point, ing me up." There will be erected car shops of the Northern Pacific railroad and through the property will run a new subur ban railway. The purchase of 380 acres direcrly west of the Grant loco motive works section has been com pleted. The title was taken in the name of Willard T Block, The con sideration was 8750,000. Willaid T Block is the secretary of the Grant locomotive laud syndicate, but back of that is the Northern Pacific rail road, which made the first payment ofS150,000. A traffic alliance between the Balti more and Ohio and the Northern Pa cific contemplates a transcontinental line, and the freight will be run through without breaking the trains. The survey for the new line has been completed. Men have been at work at it for several weeks, but the survevors themselves did not know what line ihev were working on. The survey is complete in about all its details, and the work of construe tion wilt begin as soon as possible. RAILS AND TIES. C. H. Burkett, of the M.,K & T., general offices, left last night for St. ILouia. lYiiseouri jracinc tram ho. i came in from St. Louis one-half hour late yesterday afternoon. Conductor Goddard had sixty- six passengers from Kansas City for Sweet bpnngs last night. Charlie B. McDonald, of the gen eral offices, was a passenger to Kansas City yesterday afternoon. James Gray, extra fireman on the Missouri Pacific, left Yesterday for a visit at his home in Versailles. Cliff Jackson, attorney for the M., K. & T. in the Indian Territory, came up from Muscogee yesterday. Arney Poindexter is said to be the finest flute player in Sedalia. Billy Grow is the Bazoo s authority for the statement. Conductor Al. Marsh, of the Missouri Pacific, is out with a special tram and his regular run is looked after by Conductor Martin. Superintendent Meade Stilwell, of he west end of the Missouri Pacific, visited Pleasant Hill yesterday and returned last night. R. M. Peck, superintendent o bridges for the Missouri Pacific, came n from the east on a special at 8.50 o'clock last night and took a room at Sichei's. J D. Lobine, a popular conductor on the International and Great North em road, arrived in the city from Texas yesterday and will spend several days with his family. Architect Stein, of the M., K. & T., and W. P. Cousley, the contract or, leave to- night for Emporia, Kas., where Mr. Cousley will build the new depot for the "Katy." Ground will be broken to-morrow. John Bird, who has started a news stand in the depot toilet room, is getting rich rapidly. He was sell ing the Globe-Democrat and supple ment for separate papers yesterday, according to Mose Rainey, and scraped in many nickels. The Sweet Springs train that usually leaves here at 9:10 a. m. Sunday will be held this morning until the arrival of No. 6 from Kansas City at 10:4ft o'clock. A number of distinguished people will come down'from the Kaw's mouth and go to the Springs to spend the Sabbath. Lyman Hall, an old time passen ger conductor on theM., K. & T.. is now filling a similar position on the electric road. He was once a con ductor on the elevated road in Kansas City, when A. M. Hager was su perintendent, and hence is right at home in his present situation. "This is the .seventh anniversary of the telegraphers' strike on the "Western union,3, remarked E. S. Hughen yesterday, "and you can bet I shall never forget the contest. I was working at Ottumwa, Ioa, at the time, and when we lost I had to seek a new job. It took me three and one half months to find one, and I thought for a long time I never would catch on." Dan Breen, late in the employ of theM., K. &T. at this point, and now located at Galveston, Texas, writes to his friend, "Iron Nerve'r Poindexter, as follows: "I like this place. It has only one draw-back, and that is the numerous mosquitoes. They wear hoxiDg gloves and two of them can whip a bull dog. J have to The M., K. & T. has an excellent system of tracing lost articles. Miss Jennie Lockwood, of Parsons, left a pocket book containing a small amount of money, in a passenger coach at Chanute. about a month ago and yesterday the pocket book was returned to Train Master Wirth's office from Chanute after having traversed the entire Neosho section station by station, in search of an owner, The money was also returned, A Serions Charge. Heiney Younp;, who brakes for his brother-in-law, Conductor Lronberger, on te m'idle division of the Missouri Pacific, was arrested here last night and turned over to the cty marshal of Chamois to answer to the charge of feloniously assaulting an unknovsn man at that point at an early hour yrday morning. Very litle is known here in regard to the case. The victim of the al leged assault was unconciou3 when the raarrbal left there and his condi tion was considered precarious. It is thought by some at Chamois that the injured man is a tramp and was thrown from the train by Brake man Young while trying to steal s ride. This is the ground on which the warrant was issued. Young, however, says he saw no tramp and had no trouble with any one. His conductor, Leonberger, says the same thing, and is of the opin ion that the victim was struck by a train and injured. Young was taken to Chamois at midnight and is expected to be able to give bond on arrival there. WIS HE BURIED ALIVE I The Horrible Suspicion Prevaleat in theVicinitj of Nevada, Missouri.
