The interior of the Cooper county jail does not furnish any accommoda tion for an execution such a3 i3 con templated by the present law, and the fence around the premises is not high enough to shut off the view from the outside. A new one will have to be constructed. Turlington's last hope is evidently gone. - He is closely guaided day and night and Sheriff Hornbeck will now watch him with renewed vigil ance. He cannot expect, under the circumstances to escape. The only "way he can cheat the gallows now will be to die a natural death or com mit suicide. On His Way to Washin gf on. Seated in a palace car of the M., K. & T. railway this morning was an Indian chieftain. He had justar rivieU from the south and was on his way to Washington. He was a fine looting, full-blooded member of the Creek tribe. He seemed to be enjoy ing the enticing flavor of a cigar and the luxury of his surroundings im mensely. As a Bazoo representative approached him, he smiled quite pleasantly and extended his bejeweled hand. He could utter only a half dozen or so English words and as there was no interpreter near -by to remove the difficulty staring the newspaper man in the face, it began to look as though somebody had run up against a snag. The chief then drew from his pocket an envelope addressed to Hon. Thomas Knight, Muscogee, I. T., this was the ghost dancer's name, but when the letter within the envelope was un folded it was found to be written in Indian. The chief appreciated the Bazoo's embarrassing predicament and then handed him another docu ment written in English. It turned out to be Mr. Knight's commission as a delegate to Congress, dated Novem ber 20, 1890, and signed by J. C. Ferryman, principal chief of the Creek Nation. A Yonngr Man StaUliecI. A fatal affray is said to have occur ed at Harwood, a small station on the Missouri, Kansas & Texas road, four teen miles east of Jevada at 5 o'clock last evening. Nick Warren owed George Yowell 50 cents. Yowell ask ed Warren for the money and a quar rel ensued. Yowell, who is only a boy, showed fight when Warren struck Mm on the head with a hammer. He reported the fight to his father, who took Warren to task, when they got into a fight in which Warren was struck with a sledge hammer. War ren then stabbed Yowell four times in the left side and across the abdomen. The attending physician says i owell cannot recover. Warren was placed under arrest and taken to Nevada and jrtaced in jail. llrcmt Court Proceedings. Sarah E. Barrick vs. Missouri Pa cific Railway compaiiy, damages ; defpndt nt files answer.

Coxon is a young man who bur glarized a store at Blairstown last December, getting away with five guns, two pistols and a big lot of cut lery. He pleaded guilty in the Henry countycircuit court and was sentenced to three years. John Barnes is the name of the other young man. He came from Douglas county to Henry county, where he committed burgulary and was sen tenced to two years in the pen. "I see that Turlington has to go at Boonville," remarked Sheriff Calloway to a Bazoo representative. In ans wer to the queston as to whether he had ever had to hang anybody, he said that once some years ago, while serving as a deputy sheriff in Henry county, he had assisted in removing a murderer named Patterson If Not Already Familiar To You All we ask is try a bottle of Maguire's Cundurango when suffering from Headache, Constipation, Pever, T)iRnrc?prprl Tjivpr.

Glassburn. They took breakfast down town and then visited Recorder Pilkington's office, where Mr. Gilmore applied for a niarringe license, his betrothed being Miss Glassburn. Re corder Pilkington had serious dou ts as to either one of the young people being old enough to be granted license, and he refused to issue it unless the parents should be present and give their consent. The ladies and gentlemen from Green Ridge were greatly disappointed at the failure to obtain the necessary papers. This evening the 'old folk J" are expected to arrive and see that the thing is properly settled. BLACK-DRAUGHT tea cures Constipation A College Closed. The Nevada. Christian university, which was erected and opened at Ne vada, Mo., a little over a year ago, dismissed its students and closed its doors Saturday. The university building is heavily encumbered and the board of managers regret that they are unable to meet expenses. The school opened last fall with a large attendance, and it is believed that with sufficient financial backing to meet the present demands, it would soon have been one of the lead- lg educational institutions of the state.

From a gentleman who came down fn-m HiVgit.svdie, the Bazoo learns thai iherr is still much ex. itement in that community over the shoo ing of Alfred Peacork, a wealthy farmer rssdii.g near .hat mW rmnt.on of which wa made in yesterday Bazoo. c- It seems thai Mr. and Mrs. Peacock, wno had been attending church in Higginsvi le, hal just arrived home. They are the oiilj members of the famdy and the hou-e had been leit a one. Mr. Peacock had placed the horse in the stable and proceeded to lake the h rness to the smoke house, where it was usually left. Upon open- iii2 the loor a large nesro, witn re- volver in hand, faced him and imme- diately begin firing. Peacock hastily retreated and his assailant closely fol lowed, continuing to fire until all the chambers of the revolver had been emptied. One shot took effect in Peacock's chin, inflicting a painful but not dan gerous wound. Every shot fired was a close call. The negro then turned and retreated with greatest possible speed to the timber near the barn. Here he had in waiting one of Pea cock's horses, which he mounted and dashed away. The horse was found this morning. The stranger had previously gone through the house and had taken some money aud several articles of value. Mr. Peacock describes the man as being a ta I, smooth mulatto, wearing a cap and being fairly well dressed. The Firsc Step.

Hall Norris, a hack driver in the employ of Mapiu & Moffit's livery stable in Kansas City and familiarly t .tuu xuuuu tread in room zi, union Depot hotel yesterday morning. An empty laudanum bottle shoived that he had taken poison with suicidal intent, but a post mortem held by Coroner Langsdale in the forenoon went to show that Iorris died of suffocation or strangulation before the poison had accomplished much of its work. This was not con sidered strange, as death frequently occurs in that manner in cases of laudanum poisoning. Norris sought death because of an estrangement be tween himself and wife. Norris and his wife lived in the rear of 1307 Union avenue. About five days ago, being unable to agree they separated. Friday nisrht about 7 o'clock the hackman called at the Union depot hotel and was given room 21: He had been drinking and he staggered into his room just a3 Senator Ingalls, Billy Buchanan and his coterie of political advisers, who met here Friday night, entered room 2o, already ill fated by the suicide of Rudolph Aufay When the dead hackman was found yesterday decomposition had already set in. Two laudanum bottles were found, one on his bed, and it was empty ; another in one of his pockets, from which about a spoonful had been takeu. In his pocket, also, was found a letter from his wile, dated Christmas, 1890, and which had evidently accompauied a gift. In it wer,e proposed plans by which they might live happily the et suing year and the writing was that of a person of fair education. Iu the course of it she said : "We know not when the bridegroom cometh. We don't know what might happen between this Christmas and the nest. On Saturday night, not kuowiug that her husband was lying dead in room 21 of the Union Depot hotel, Mrs. Morris left a letter for him with his employers telling him to return to her and that they would again live happily together. Hall Morris wa- born and reared near Pleasant Green, and belonged to one of the most respectable families in Cooper county. His father is a well-to-do farmer, and is highly esteemed iu the community where he resides. The son has been a frequent visitor to Sedalia, and some years ago made an effort to get on the police force here. Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. : A Narrow Escape.

MISSOURI. M-EiiRSCHAUMS. A Franklin County Farmer Tells How They are Made. Joseph T. Hart, a prominent far mer from Franklin countv. Mo., was i" the city this morning, on hs way home. "I see that you are smoking a Missouri meerschaum, Mr. Hart," said a Bazoo representative. "Well, yes," replied the gentleman. "The manufacture of these pipes is a very considerable industry at Wash ington. Not less than twenty-five persons are constantly employed at the factory, and large numbers of these pipes are turned out daily. The trade i3 not confined to the United States, but extends to all parts of the world. "Mr. Hibbs is the patentee. A dozen years ago he came to Washing ton and set up a turning shop. After awhile he began to make these pipes in a rude way and on a small scale. Seeing that they were becoming pop ular, he organized a stock company anl put in machinery purposely for their manufacture. "Franklin county supplies the factory with all the cobs used. The prices paid for them range any where from S-J to 20 per load. It takes a g iod, solid cob to make a pipe that is saleable. Mr. Hibbs manu factures some iu fancy styles that sell as high a3 50 cents, though the usual price is only five cents. "It may not be generally known, but the secret of the patent lays in the fillinsr used on the outside of the pipe. Itis made of a material some thing like plaster of paris." HOW TURLINGTON Keceived the News of the Su preme Court's Decision. A telegram from Boonville in this mornings J&tobe Democrat s Jfegjj decision in his case yesterday : The prisoner heretofore ha3 been apparently disinterested, but all of yesterday and during a great portion of the night showed great anxiety. During the night he was sleepless and walked to and Iro in his little 8x10 fost cell. Upon the reception of the telegram the sheriff hastened to the jail to inform Turlington of his fate, he having asked the sheriff to please communicate the news of the decision as soon as it was received, for it would relieve him of a great mental strain. From thi3 it seems that, for the first time since his arrest, he has shown signs of weakening, as he evi dently realizes that escape on account of any physical exertions on his part is beyond hops, and he can expect no leniency from the Governor. Sheriff Hornbeck went into the corridor with the telegram in his hand and said : "John, I have had news for you. The Supreme Court has affirmed the decision in your case and set the time for your execution on March 6," Turlington arose and said : "Cap tain, it's pretty hard. Have you the decision with you ?" The sheriff re plied that he had not, and then asked him if there was auytbing that he wanted, a minister, or anyone that he wished to see. He replied that he did not at this time, but wanted some paper so as to write his mother an 1 friends. The sheriff will place two extra men, it is stated, to act in con- iuuetion with the other two that have been with him constantly day and night since his last capture, as a death watch, two to remain with him duriug the day and two at night Since his last cap ture Turlington has been handcuffed and his feet shackled. He has been so dextrcus, however, that only half the time does he allow thein to remain upon him, as he can remove them without any apparent effort. He in sists that he will never be hung, and the officers feel that he will try to cheat the gallows by killing himself. Whithin the last few weeks he has attempted to starve himself, absolute ly refusing to eat anything. His longest fast, however, wa3 five days. The prisoner's physical condition is considerably weaker than at any time since his arrest. Bonntl at Beamaa. Lee Blackstone and Lizzie White, colored, were married at Beaman, on the night of Saturday, Jan. 24, by Justice A. J. Mann. The White bride is now a colored wife. lalkinc ih a Ri..itimHH J- F Hinkle. manager of th Champion rnch, located in fouthen New Mexico, which is partly owne by Major Harvey Sdmon was in Se daha this morning and left on the 10:40 tram to visit friends near St. r uw. "We have 2o,000 he ead of cat le on our ranch this season. It is a breed-' mg ranch and we annually brand about 5,000 calves. The branding season runs from the first of Mav 1 the the first of Sep-eraber, and re quires not less than fitteen men." ''We never feed these cattle anything but grass This is free and remains good all winter. Our cattle being in a fine fix. Bing a breeding ranch we have got almo t rid of the old stock of Spanish bull-, and in their nlace have introduced Missouri b ulls." Mr. Hinkle has been ranching for seven years. "There have been great changes in regard to cowboys since 1 went into the business. It used to be that they got the mo-t of the mon ey ; now their wages have b en re duced, their numbers cut down and the owners of the ranch reap the profits." Mr. Hinkle i3 aa old acquaintance of J. B. Elliott of Sedalia. AS LIKE AS TWO PEAS. A Practical Illustration of "the Fellow That Looks Like Me". Jas. T. Hart, a farmer of Franklin county, Mo., and Sheriff James Cal laway, of Henry county, Mo., met in Sedalia this morning under rather peculiar circumstances. Yesterday, Mr. Hrt was in Clin ton and was accosted by several gen tlemen who mistook him for their frieud, the sheriff. One man ap proached him and said: "Hello, sheriff, when are you coming out to see U3 ?" Another one a few min utes afterward came up to Irm and exclaimed : "What's the matter, Mr. Callaway ? You must have been sick. You are look ing a little thinner than usual. " This morning, hearing that the Henry county sheriff was in town with some prisoners, a Bazoo representative started out to find him, being as he thought, already pretty well ac quainted with the distinguished official. He soon found a man stand ing on the corner of Main and Ohio streets, and addressed him as Sheriff Callaway. "You're mistaken in the man," said the stranger. "I've fooled tYmtdetJ' " A few mmutes later the two men, who resemble each other as closely as the two Dromios of byracuse, happen ed to meet, and a merry time they had over the amusing incidents arism Cr from their likeness to each other. The men are remarkably alike in size, manner and general bearing. Thev wear the same kind of mus taches, both use glasses, have voices in which no difference can be detected and are as nearly like twin brothers as can well be imagined. They had never heard of each other before their meeting this morning. McELREE'S WINE OF CARDUi for Weak Nervei. They Sang to a Dying 3In. A few days ago the Kansas City J ournal reported the fact that Rev. Mr. Sobmson, an aged circuit rider or the Methodist church of that city, was in destitute circumstances at 916 Lyon avenue. Yesterday he wa3 almost dead, and sent word to the tabernacle that he could die easier if the scholars would come down and sing in his yard. The school was formed in marching order and repair ed to the front yard of the place where the aged preacher lay dying. Several songs were sung and when the scholars left him he seemed will ing to die. Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. Foolishly anot. Daniel, the 17-year-old son of W. H. H. Wagonner, living in the west ern part of Vernon county, was acci denrjy shot by a young man named Beagles Saturday morning. Beagles was showing Wagonner how a deputy 1 sheriff had brought his pistol down on a thief while making an arrest a few days since, and, in doing so, he acci dently discharged the weapon. The -ball entered the left breast and came out below the ribs on the right side. There is little hope of his recovery. A Fine Jack. L. M.
