THE SEDAJaA WERliY BAZOO. DECEMBER 23. 1890. i V; EX-CUiNFE!)ERA IE HOME. 3Sot Many of the Locations Sug gested Desirable-$50,000 Will bo Raised. In au interview in Nevada yester day W. P. Barlow, secretary of the ex-Confedi rate association of Missouri said : "We have received over a dozen offers for the ex eon federate home but most cf them do not amount to any thing. For instance there 13 o .e man who offers 2,000 acres of land in Rev- Dolds county, and offers a bonus of one thousand dollars for five years This is way down on the Lou Moun tain road. Of the leading offers, first is that of Higginsville. One man offers 841, 000 worth of land, at 8 per cent interest, to be puid during the life time of the owner end wife, or the survivor of the two. 'The citizens of Higginsville ohVr $5,000 in cash if the association will buy 100 acres of land there at $10 -000. Then a cash offer of S4,000 as a bonus if we buy any other laud. Still a four 1 h proposition which is not made known yet. 'The second offer comes from Dres den. The citizens there offer U3 a deserted town. The buildings are just what we don't want. We want to put up our own buildings. 'The third offer is that of the Lin wood farm at Lexington. That is offered at 30,000. The house cost $80,000. It is.one of the finest in the state of Missouri. It ?as built by a Mr. Limerick, a wealthy man. 4 We expect an offer of a piece of iand tor sale m Henry county. However there is nothing definite. 'There is also a farm four miles irom Moberly offered us cheap. These are the leading offers, inclusive of XJevada.. Higginsville is pulling very strong for the home. Outside of that I don't know of the effort being made else where. 'I am sanguine that $50 000 will be raised for the home. No one else "who has anything to do with it places the figures less than $60,000 "When Baby was sick, we gave her Castoria. "When she was a Child, she cried for Castoria. "When she became Miss, she clung to Castoria. When she had Children, she gave them Castoria. So Funeral Sermen. Wm. Li. Beatie, one of the pioneer -settlers of Saline county, died in Sweet Springs last Eriday in the seventy-first year of his age. The funeral services were held at the Al. jE. church yesterday and were largely attended by people ft om all parts of the county. No funeral discourse was delivered, as two or three days before his death Mr. Beatie wrote a p3er to be read at his funeral and to take the place of the usual sermon. It was read by Kev. W. T. Eastwood, pastor of the M. E. church, of which the deceased was a member. It was in the nature of a last farewell and an exhortation to meet him in heaven. WINE OF oa .or Women. Obstructing: s Pnblic roatl. William Cloyd was arrested this morning, charged with obstructing a public highway, and arraigned before Justice H. C. Levens, who postponed the hearing until 2 o'clock Eriday afternoon. Mr. Cloyd is a renter who resides on a farm south of Seda lia, on the public road leading from Windsor to Ionia City, Pe'tis county. Some time ago he trimmed a hedge running alongside the highway aud threw the Osage orange braches out into the road. A person is allowed to do this, provided he removes the brush in twenty days. This, Mr. Cloyd failed to do. JEe argues that lie was employed to trim the hedge, but not to remove the brush. Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. Making Money Anywliere. Having read Mr. Morehead's expe rience plating with gold, silver and nickel, I sent for a plater and have more work than I can do. It is sur prising the spoons, castors and Jew elry that people want plated. The first week I cleared $37.10, and in three weeks 119.85, and my wife has made about as I have. By address ing W. H.

MyDearSedalia Friends: How would you feel if, instead of looking forward to a merry Christmas with your loved ones all around y.u and your pretty presents bestowd aud received, you had no piospect beyond a sight of the well tilled attractive windows, which you know contained not one single thing for you, a cold aud dreary hovel, with no happy faces in it, an almost fireless hearth, not enough of even the plainest food and noi a r nt sign 01 onnsimas anywnere. cuppnse to that your littie child was to b cold and miserable and ragged and forlorn, don't vou think vou would wish that some kind heart would remember it and try to do som: thing to make it happy? I think you would and I'm sure such poor little letters a3 this one which Santa Claus has received would call forth an answer.

Miss Delia, one of the Bridges twins, so well known throughout this section of the country, died at the Lamar House in Lamar yesterday morning of pneumonia. Her twin sister died two years ago. The little twins were seen here a number of times and made friends wherever they went. Their early taking off will cause much regret. Fire At Bnnceton. T. J. Wallace, of the Bunceton, Cooper county, ueigbboihood, who passed through Sedalia last night, informed a Bazoo representative that the fine residence of Mr. Lewis Cas tleman at Bunceton was totally des troyed by fire the night before.

Hansberger, the wvll known Bunceion, Copper county, merchan and star route c infractor arrived Twin Boonville this mornmz, and iuforme 1 a Bazoo representative of tte latest sensat.Jon among our neighbors on the n rth. Yesterday morning, Albert Cham brrliu, who resides in Bell Air town ship, twelve mi es south of Boonvilh, to k a load of wood to thelatter plce aud started home, early in the after noon. A few hours later he was found lying dead in the road, about five miles oui, with his wTagon and team of four mu'es standing near by. The coroner was promptly notified and went at once to where the dead man lay. A thorough examination failed to disclose any indication of f play. There were no bruises anywhere on the body, and at last accounts, the affair was still shrouded in mys cry. As it was Mr. Charaberliu's habit to ride one of his mule3 when hitched lo his wagon, it may be that he fell or was thrown off and was killed. Deceased was a native of Virginia, and had resided in Cooper county since the beginning of the war. He wa3 prominent in all worthy enter prises in his neighborhood, and was regarded as an estimable citizen. He was lecturer of the local Farmers' and Laborers' Union. A widow and six children remain to mourn the loss of a kind husband and indulgent father. Mr. Chamberlin was a member of the I. O. O. F., and was buried to-day under the auspices of the Pilot Grove lodge. To Trust is to bust, To bust is bell. No Trust, no bust, No hell. A Clone Call. A man driving a pair of horses at tached to a wagon had a frightfully narrow escape at the Kentucky street crossing this afternoon as the 12:38 passenger came down. Ttie cow catcher missed the rear of the wagon by less than a foot and the crowTd of people at the union depot stood motionless for a moment as they wit nessed the team dash madly away from as close a call as man and horses ever had. The engineer reversed his engine bnt could not check up until after the crossing was passed. Want the Game JLaw Changed. As the statute now stands, thegame law in Missouri in certain particulars goes into enect on ttie ntteenth day of October and expires in -the following February. In the presence of a Bazoo repre sentative yesterday, several Pettis county farmers, in conversation with Hon. Monte Carnes, expressed a de sire for the law to be changed so as to fall a month later than October. They say that the latter month is a very busy time with the average farmer and that they do not have a fair show with hunters from the towns, whose leisure allows them to go into the fields so early and have the choice shooting. By changing the statute o as to have it take effect in November. when the farmers are mostly done with their fall work, everybody would be given an equal ckance. It is said that a large majority if i -.11 Pxl. r t-a? . . 1 an, ui we larmers 01 ireiiis county 1 favor the change.

That Mis-ouri at present, as retards its railtoads, is like a live town with all the stieets ruuning east and west, and that the enterprising twns north and south of us were determined that this state of affairs shall no longer continue. The tide of travel, of commerce and of investment is rapi sly turning south, aud the noith and south r.utd would be built, no, to develop a country, but to meet the absolute demands of a country only partly developed. The gentleman were agreed in say ing that Springfield and Sedalia had met them in a most friendly spirit, that they had acted as though they recognized in Marshall an enterpris ing and growing city with which they des red railway connection, and they had selected Marshall as a point on the line of road they are determined to build.

JJurInry and Arson. Editor Allen of the Leader came up from Pilot Grove this morning, and informed a Bazoo representative of a bold burgtary aud attempted arson at the Pilot Grove Collegiate institute hist Monday ntglit. .Bur glars entered the rooms of W. L. Oliver and Frank McAmis, students, on the second floor, and secured $25 iu mone and two valuable gold watches. As tbey were making their way out ot the building one ot the students followed them and fired sev eral shot3 at them, but, so far as is now known, without effect. Jfot satisfied with burglary, the guilty parties secured a lot of pam phlets, piled them up, poured coal oil over them and set them on fire, which was soon discovered and extinguished, There i3 much mystery surrounding the whole afiair and it is not unlikely there will ba some sensational devel opments. Two Applicants at Pilot Grove. The resignation of T. Al. Koberts as postmaster at Pilot Grove, Cooper county, having been sent in, there are two applicants for the plac?, the father of the incumbent being one of them and John R. Coburn, the other. Mr. Roberts application was placed in the hands of P. H. Mc Nulty, a clerk in the pension office at Washington, but he seems to have disappointed Mr. Roberts and his friends and to have favored Colburn's application. McKulty is very much of a politician and exerts considerable influence in postoffice appointments in Central Missouri. Killed by the Fast .Hall. This morning the Kansas City Times says that the westbound fast mail train on the Missouri Pacific ves terday morning struck and killed Charles Gilmore, a colored man, in the East bottoms. When Coroner Langsdale was sum moned to the scene he found that the dead man was wounded only in the left side and hip. A search of his pockets revealed the man's name. Three empty pocket books and a pawn ticket for $37.50 were found on his person besides a whisky bottle, unbroken and almost empty. The poeketbooki were little worn, and, as nobody has yet been found who knws the man, the coroner suspected that he might have stolen the articles and reported the matter to Chief Speers, who will look at the man's body in order to further identify him if possi ble. An inquest will be held at 2 o'clock this afternoon. KailraMl Meeting. A mass-meeting was held in the county court room Tuesday night in the interest of the North and South railroad.

Secretary Dumars, of the chamber of commerce, Springfield, Mo., has traced on a map of Missouri the route that seems most fesihle for a railroad from Springfield to Marshall. "The road," he says, "will be easy of con struction ai d will have an easy align ment. It is nearly an air line, and runs on divides almost all the way. Leaving Springfield and passing three miles northwest of Strafford it strikes the divide between the Pomme de T 1 XT: j.T T- j.erre jjiu ria:iguu. rivers, turougu 1 Fair Grove, Greene county Buffalo TJrbana and Lewisiurg,Dal!as county; Cross Timbers, Hickory county, to Duvoc, ou the Osf3ge river; thence on Buffalo creek to coal lands and the prairie coun try which lies betwe n that and the Missouri and which is comparatively level. From the line iu the eastern part of Benton couty a spur can easily be constructed topping the 72 feet vien of coal in the southwest part of Morgan county. There is coal ako at the Blue Mounds, on the line be tween Dallas and Polk counties, west of Buffalo and worlds of lead near the line between .Hickory and Dallas counties, lne roan irom bpnngneld to Marshall will be only about 145 miles long. From Marshall to Miami on the Missouri river, will doubtless be the nest extension, and from there to Chil icothe to connect with several of the great trunk lines.'' Mr. Dumars thinks the Springfield, Sedalia, Marshal- & Northern is the road for Springfield and Sedalia to concentrate their energies upon at present. Probab'y Correct. A slick forger has been working the grocery stores of Sedalia on the same swiudle that was worked on Dan Folck last Friday night ; that is, the stranger would purchase a small bill of groceries and then tender a check signed by some well known firm for a few dollars more than the purchase, and upon receiving his change in good money he would dis appear. Possibly it i3 the same man who is wanted here. Marshall Dem ocrat News. DIED. Mrs. Caroline "Wicklin died at her home six miles west of Sedalia last evening, of cancer. She wa3 buried to-day, Willis G. Matthews, aged SI years, died at 1108 Osage street, in this city, last evening, of pneumonia His remains were shipped to Sweet Springs, for interment, this afternoon. Elizabeth, wife of Israel Walter, aged 77 years, died yesterday after- . noou. h uneral at l:dU p. ., to-morrow, at New Salem. Jolm G. Wbittler. The poet Whittier was 83 years of age yesterday. He passed the day quietly at his winter home at Oak Knoll Danvers. John Greenleaf Whittier was born at Haverhill, Mass., Dec. 17, 1867, and came of Quaker parentage. He spent his early days on a farm, also learning the shoemaker's trade. His first verses appeared in the Haverhill Ga zette, Whittier being 18 years old at the time. Since that he has pub lished a great many poems, many of which were written in slavery days, and attracted much attention, owing to.their strong anti-slavery tendencies.
