For any information about it con-.ult THE A SWEET VOICE. Men talk and write a great deal about a woman'3 pretty hand. They compare it to the whiienes3 of a lily, to the persuasive softness of a rose, to the shapeliness of something wrought of fine, pure marble by the Italian masters. They speak of her beautiful hair, how that it is golden like unto the sunbeams that shimmer down from the pale-tiuted evening sky ; or yet like the dark wing of a bird, its glossy glimpses entrancing to be hold. They sing of her eyes, black and bright as an Andalusian lady's in far away Spain, or yet blue as the violets are blue when the first breath of April kisses their velvet cheeks into glowing again. They prate of her pretty feet, dainty as Cinderella's in the olden legend, and fit to tread only where the fairies dance under the enchant ment of the pale moon in palace halls of heavenly workmanship. But supremely above and beyond all these is a soft, gentle, exquisie voice in woman. She may be homely of features and scant of other attrac tions, but if from her lips fall the honeyed syllables of soft speech, they atone for almost any other deficiency. To the lover leaning intently to listen, the tones of her pretty voice are sweeter than the exquisite murmur of silver waves on a summer beach. To the husband, after a day of labor and fretting, the gentle speech of a wife is more soothing to hi3 soul than the notes of a reed played by the good god, Pan, down in the shadowy haunts of the woodland. To the old man, the snows of many winters drifted deep above his wrink led brows, the voice of his equally aged wife, not yet harsh because of the passing of many years, is holier than the tones of dreams out of the deep recesses of the land of s'eep. And when fever smites the brow, or one of the myriad misfortunes of life lay onelow on a couch of pain, the sweet, caressing veicejof one we love, -TJheers more thoroughly and heals more rapidly than the ancient art of the physician. And yet again, when the weary feet are dipping deep in the symbolic stream we call Jordan, and the faces of friends are fading away in the dim shadow of death, the tender speech of sister or daughter or mother min gles so sweetly with the welcoming song of angels on the other side, that we hardly know which are the voices of the earthly ones aud which of the gerapbim. Most azoo olicior. DEAD BECAUSE DECEIVED. Mrs. Fluck the wife of the notori- j ous Sheriff Flack of New York, is dead and it is said her death was directly due to the shock of discover ing that her husband had procured a fraudulent divorce from her. It wa then the cruel act of a hus band which caused the poor woman's death; the deliberately planned method by which the man she loved and who had promised oa GjJ's altar to protect and cherish her had e:.- hruuid sr-ratch if he couw m aay way get his hands i I loose. We know vour Ccticcea Uemediks ctred deavorcd to break the bond which, hlm- We fcelsafe in recoominending them tooth united them. He killed her just as much as if he had sitzed a revolver and shot her to death. Of course no law can touch the murderer no Isw but the torturing pangs of conscience wThich will some day, it not at present, rise from the grave in which it has been hidden aud like a nightmare will not down. It is easy to imagine how such de ception can kili a woman. A woman never loves with her head, it is always her heart, and jewels, nor wealth nor fame have ever yet bought that love; she simply loves not because there is any reason for it, not because it i3 wi se, not for any excuse uuder heaven's dome, but love she does, and when the object of her love decieves her, she either goes straight to pjrdi tion, to a convent, or to eath. When she goes to psrdition, be sure others will go with her; be suie she has had her revenge, be sure she has male the one man's wrong the score for innumerable wrongs. When she goes to a convent, she is as devout as the most devout, and perchauce she wearies Heaven with her prayers before she gets the peace she craves. When she dies she dies as the martyr dies with the beat of a bro ken heart sounding her requiem, and yet there are people who smile in dulgently when a m n's injustice to a woman is mentioned ; aud in this prosaic age the sneer of scorn at her misfortune is far more ready than the irnina cat pity. At the same time the poor wife of the Hew York sheriff is much more to be envied than the man who drove her to her death, for remorse, that tooth of despair, must be his portion, while she God grant she rests at peace forever and aye. OUR GIRLS. By this is meant Sedalia girls in particular not because they are worse than other girls, but because they are "ours" and it does appear as if they needed better control than is some times given them. It is a common thing to refer to "our boys" and coun cil parents to keep them at home after night fall, at least, but nobody seems to think that "our girls" are laying a foundation for laziness, disobedience and perhaps viciousness when they are permitted to be on the street at all hours of the day. There are certain girls, not always the children of hum ble people eiiher, who are never missed from the street and sometime wonder arises as to their home duties. Is there no domestic life in their homes which of right, a portion belongs to them ? Are there no burthens to be moved from the mother's tired shoulders, no enconomy which they j can help put ino practice, no duties which will enable them to some da y be queens in their ownhome3 ? What man, with a grain of common sense wou!d care to select a wife who daily goes upon dres3 parade for the benefit of ogling loafers, and no les3 repre hensible professional mashers. rOur girls" should remember this and keep the sweet freshness of their lives by as much of home life as it is possible, for after all say what we may of the society woman, the woman who Btands upon the restrum, the woman who goes into the world as a reformer, it ia the dear home woman who brings wiih her a rest, a solace which is the next to heaven on this earth and which leads to heaven just as surely as the sparks fly upward.

This fair ought to have beeu held in New Y-rk in 1S92 and not in Chicago in 1893. But it was otherwise dtcreed. and the change does not in any way alter the character of the undertaking as a great National enterprise, in whose success the pride and honor of tne entire country are bound up. For the determination of some of the Southern states to make their paitici. patLn in the fair dependent upon the abaudoment of tho force bill there is something to be said in extenuation. The fair is intended to exhibit the prosperity of ihe nation and its sources; the force bill, if enacted, will go far to rob the Southern states of the very r? thev hnve hoped to show at Chicago, lr disorder is tu uc w& ized in those States by federal law and their enterprises irnperillee, they may have need at home for the money they would otherwise spend in cele brating themselves at Chicago. But New York is not in like case. The Force Bill, if enacted, will grievously wrong this State ; but it will not threaten it with a destructive race war and the paralysis of all its indus tries by civil stride. New York should oppose the Force Bill by every means in it3 power, but to boycott the Fair is revenge for the passage of that revolutionary measure would do no good and would subject the State to a just charge of a lack of patriotic concern for a national enter prise to which the government is committed and in the success of which every good citizen is interest ed. The Parker tobacco bill which huS passed the houss of representatives at Jefferson City should become a law by all means as it will prevent the deadly cigarette from being put in ihe bauds of minors. There i3 no doubt whatever that to the incessant smoking of the cigarette is due the the sickly, sappy condition of many young boys, who should be brimming over with health and vitality. The cigarette is a foe which deserves to be corquered and without an adequate law to protect minors, parents, who realize its dangers are helpless. Healthy manhood cannot be built upon the foundation of diseased boy hood and diseased boyhood cannot cease while poison in the shape of the cigarette subtly undermines the con stitution a3 well as morals. The Bazoo is glad to note the fact that the Commercial Club is increas ing in its membership daily and under the able management of it3 president, Frank B. Meyer, is becoming one of the features of Sedalia'a business life which is bound to accomplish rich results in future. Keep the ball rolling so that Seda lia will soon have a commercial club which is second to none. A good commercial club is the very germ of a city's business success.

The prospers that Western Mis souri will become the great cattle fat tening section of the West are now most excellent, owing to the steps tx- Ken oy a numoer of range owners in Colorado, Nebraska an 1 New Mexico. Charles Staples of Trinidad, N. M., has just been in St. Louis after hav ing spent several weeks in Central and southwestern Missouri, where he has been invest;gating the tituation on behalf of an assjciation of cattle rais ers who are about to eng tge exclusive ly in the shipment of beef to Europe. "Our plan is," sa;d Mr. S!aples,"to use the ranges as breeding grounds, and ripen our stock in Missouri. We have looked carefully overall the avail able territory and find none so sui?ed to our purposes as some parts of this State. ADVANTAGES OF MISSOURI. For cattle bred on the northern plains.Iowa i3a good ripening ground, but the winters are liable to be too severe for southern bred stock. Our Colorado and New Mexico cattle ma ture rapidly as fr.r as frame and matroniziug power i3 concerned, but our grasses do not seem 10 have a fat tening effect, ad our stock does not lay on fl-sh as it should. The noith ern grasses have more meat-making piwer, but the cohl winters prevem rapid growth of youug ctttle, aud here is a heavy lois every year among the calves. For a long lime our piaclice has been to sell our yearlings and 2 year-olds to Wyoming and l3akoto ranchmen, who fattened them on their ranges and then sold them. Manv of these men never bred any cattle at all, relyiug on us to furnish their stock. There are several roasons why this method of doing business is no longer desirable. The trail has been closed, and we can no longer drive, but are obliged to ship, and the ex pense of th s reduces the profits to almost nothing. Then the northern ranches are reducing their stocks and do not wish lo buy extensively from us. Bui the principal cause for the change of base is that we can do much better for ourselves bv sending our catile to be ripened in Missouii. CORN AND GRASS FEEDING. "In the first place it is on the way to the place of shipments, and freights are tower, ueuaustT piuuuuanT Suip direct, with a stoppage for ripening purposes in transit. Then six months on corn are better than two years on the best buffalo grass that ever grew. The winters are not severe, and our southern bred cattle do not suffer as they do in the blizzard region. By sending them in the summer or fall to Missouri, and then shipping them in the following summer, we can put mo e weigh', on them than is pos-ible by two years' grazing in the north, while we avoid the dangers of severe winters. The farm ers are beginning to see that they cn iipen our cattle more profitably than they can raise their ojvn. Until a steer is 2 yeara old it makes little difference what it is fed on so long as it has plenty of food ot some kind. The difference between a grass fed and a corn fed yearling is surprisingly small, and is not infre quently in favor of the gtass fed animals raised in warm climate, and with free range, as the frame, and therefore the meat-carrying power is likely to be more fully developed. It is only after this that corn feeding begins to have its full effect, and then jt puts flesh on very fast. FATTENING BEEyES, c cTt is a mere wasle to feed corn to youug cattle, and this fodder could be far more profitably employed iu put ting meat on range-brtd stock. We have entered into contracts which will enable us to put at least 110,000 head on Missouri farms this year, room hi ing obtaiued for many of them by the farmers selling off their breeders and old stock. It was difficult at first to induce the farmers lo join in with us, but the results already accomplish ed with the catt'e sent to this state from the Indian territory opened their eyes, and we are now in a position to state that Missouii will be the great fattening giouLd for Colorado and New Mexico" cattle. It should be remembered that every pound added after a certain point is so much clear beef, the skeleton and refuse not increasing, but being about the Bame for fat and lean stock. What we have done is only a starter, as the traffic will be certain to increase yearly. A great deal of land along the Ozarks, which is now considered of little value, is admirably adapted to cattle that are strong enough to stand the occasional storm, although it is not a good breeding ground. Tne result of the new departure will be to immensely increase the beef output of Missouri." Washington Mirror: When a man blows in his bank account he blows out his credit. Col. S. B.

As to the dispo sition which will be made of the road the projectors are not determined. One of them said yesterday that if they got a good offer for it, and he thought that the Missouri, Kansa3 and Texas might want it, they would sell. As it traverses a rich country with considerable coal, they expect to make it profitable even if they do not sell. Kansas City Journal. County Boards of Healtn. A committee of the State Medical assochtion, c insisting of Dr. J. "W. Trader, of this city, Dr. J. M. Allen, of Liberty and Dr. C. A. Thompson, of Jefferson City, went before the state board of health at the capital yesterday and recommended that the board ask 'ie legrH.ure to pass a law creating county boards of health, which snail consist of the presiding justice of the county court, the county surveyor and school commissioner, and a physician to be appoin'3-1 by the countv court, which shall also fix the per dem of the members of the board. The state board will probably adopt this recommendation. It is un derstood that there is a division in the board on the subject of the length of term m medical colleges. No appli cants for license have been examined. Governor's Marmadnke's Remains. State Treasurer Stephens was at the Southern hotel yesterday in St. Louis. Speaking of the bill pending before the state legislature to appropiiate 83000 for a monument over the grave of the late Gov. Johu S. Marmaduke in the state cemetery at J ff rson City, he said : "I have always understood from the relatives of Gen. Marma duke that the interment at the State capital wa3 but temporary, and that the remains were to be removed to Saline county. It was at first propos ed to inter the remains finally in the family burying ground on the Marmaduke farm, where rests the bones of the late governor's grand father, who was aso a governor of Missouri, and other distinguished members of the family. Later on the citizens of Marshall, the county seal of Salin, expressed a desire to have in their midst the distinguished deid of the family and have donated a large and conspicuous lot in the city cemetery for the purpose. The famUy has not decided whether to accept thi3 offeror not, but will do something definite, I am told this spring. In any event the remains of the late governor will be removed from the state capital. DEATHS. Friday night at Clifton City, Goldie Evans, six years old, daughter of H. O. Evans, died of measles. Her funeral took place yesterday after noon at Providence burying ground. Joseph Dillard, aged fifty-eight years, died at his home ten miles north of Sedalia, yesterday morning. He will be buried to-day at the Ellis buiying-ground. Deceased was an old resident of the neighborhood in which he lived and died, and was highly respected. SUDDEN DEATH Of Hon. William Wmdom, Sec retary of The Treasury, at a Banquet in New York Last Night. New York, Jan. 30. Secretary of the Treasury Wiudom died suddenly lost night while at the dinner of the Board of Tnde and Transportation at Delracnicos. The Secret iry was the first speaker of the evening. The dinner, which began at 6 o'clock pleted shortly after 9 o'clock and the Secretary arose to speak. He entertained the diners with a most elaborate oration and sat down amidst the loud ap plause of his auditors. Judge Ar roux then got up and was in the midtof his speech introducing ex Secretary Bayard, when someone cried : "Look at Secretary Win dom." The speech was broken short and every eye was turned in the direction of that gentleman. He had col lapsed in his chair and was falling to the floor. His face was gh: atlyand a cry of horror arose among the late festive revellers. There was au immadiite rush on the part of all hands toward Mr. Win dom's chair, but several doctors, who were guests at the dinner, got there first and drove the others back. They were Dr3. S. A. Kobinson, Durant, Whitney, Fisher and Bishop. Dr. Kob'nson bent down and making a close examination of the prostrate form, disco ered that the heart wrs still beating. By his orders the dying secretary was carried iuto the dish room adjoining the banquet halJ, and trere plac-d on a table. Messengeu were hastily disptached for electilc batteries and as many as four were applied to his body, which wa3 rap idly becoming cold. Tbb was exactly at 10:05 p. m . and for six minutes the electric shocks were applied incessantly, but without succe-s. At 10:11 p. m. Judge Arnoux came out of the dish room and announced to the diners that Secretary Windom, whom they had bad the pleasure of hearing only a few minutes before, had breathed "his last. "He is dead." This was the fearful announcement that was sent, through the gaily be decked banquet hall, around which of the after-dinner cigars. "He is dead." The words went to the heart of every man who her.rd them. Could they believe it ? The brilliant orator of a few minutes before, aglow wi-h enthusiasm, predicting his future pol icy in the treasury, was only a ma3 of clay. His voice was forever silenced, and his last words were for his country. Every man looked at his neighbor with blanched cheeks. Death, that awful messenger, had de scended upon their feast and taken from the crowd one of the nation's chief officers. A silence fell upon those who were only a few moments ago clamoring for rews of Mr Win dom. J udge Arnoux on retiring hr I announced that Mr. Windom had only fainted, and it was not thought by the outsiders that it was serious, as it proved to be. The Secretary had succumbed to an attack of the heart. He had for a long time been a sufferer from heart disease, and only last Monday wes visited by a shock which, however, passed away without erasing much in convenience. When it was officially announced that the Secretary was dead, Secreta ry Tracy at once went to the nearest telegraph office and sent a message to President Harrison, informing him of the sad event and requesting him to communicate with Mrs. Windom and have her start on the 11:10 p. m. train for New York. This will bring the widow to the city at 7 o'clock in the morning, and not until then can any arrangements be made for the remov al of the body. Tne Davis Will Contest Ottumwa, la., Jan. 31.
