The Colonel Talks. Will Work Somebody Snoddy in Kansas Politics How Charlie Gordon Fraz zled snoddy. low Captain G. W. Barnetfc was Snrpriseil by a Prisoner When Appointed to Defend Him. Your own deacon has been travel ing. He has been to the state of Xansas. I was at Topeka when that champion of all that good democrats like brother Jones, Deacon W. J. Manker and Deacon Mont Carnes, despise John J. Ingalls, was beaten for the senate by a "icrub," who f jr mallv owned niggers in Missouri. I saw Iugalls and he told me that my fame had reached Washing? on, and that if ever another democratic presi dent w. s elected, I should have his influence for the Sedalia posloffice. I believe he was sincere in wlr.it he said, because he looked over the top of his pisses when he told me I have been told that when he wanted to tell a lie or was in a lvincr humor he looks straight tb rough his glasses. m-rm lne man ireaer who was eke'ed to the senate ain't much in spmpa tby with us Meth odists he don't belong to any sect or body only jhe is a member of the armv of cranks who go to T I' l - semeon dinwiddie. antt iro over uie earth searching for some new ism aud take it to Kansas. He's one of 'em. While I was in Topeka I met. an old patriot with more moral courage than a locomotive, ond when younger he had physical courage to that ex tent that he could whip double his weight in wild cari. Col. Frank W. Hickox. Two decades ago the colonel figured in the politics of Missouri very extensively and to a considerable a degree in the railroad building in this State. Frank who a union man and votftd with us Democrats at that time. In this he had my approval. Col. Hickox is now a member of the Kau sas legislature from Barber county, Medicine Lodge, being the county seat The Colonel's democracy slicks to him considerably, for I saw hjm rise in his seat, and in a firm voice witb no unmeaning sound, vote against Ingalls in that great struggle The Colonel was elected to a seat in the legislature by the farmers, and of course he voted for Peffer for the senate. He did not care who he voted for so long as he beat Ingalld. Col. Hickox ain't no deacon, but he came migbty near bein' one once, for he went to prayer meetiu' wUh Deacon Washburn, nigh on to twenty years ago, when Pettis county was in hot wuter about the old Tebo and ITeo3ho railroad, now the M., K. & T. Them's was exciting times and Colonel Hickox played a full hand and always went to tbe center very promptly for the "jack pots" but he did not get them pays. The colonel is seventy two yeare old, "g:ay a3 a rat," but has the same vim as of old, and wheu mentioning the name of some of his old enemies in Missouri, his eyes would twinkle brighter and he would express him self more forcibly than elegmt. Col. Hickox said that Will Work Somebody Snoddy, formerly of Seda lia, is at Meicme, Lodge practicing l iw in his inimitable style, farming and trying to run ihe republican wing ofpobtics. The latter he is doing as a pastime Fnd meeting witb no suc cess. Speaking of Snoddy reminds me of an incident of SedaMa's early history. Snoddy was a great cowai J, and I 1 . TT .l 1 z, piesume ne is yet. ne was a mow- They know what that i3 in Kausas. A s ranker to hepr him talk would think he ate men, blood raw, before break. ast, who would inqu;re at onc3 about the size of hi3 private grave yard. But he wa3 not dangerous, aud there are pleuty of men arouud Se dalia now who have whipped him un 1 1 he "bellowed like a call." I be lieve the latter illustration is imported from Lexington, Kentucky. At the time my story occurred, Snoddy lived in South Sedalia, on Ohio s'reet near where the M. K. & T., railroad crosses the street. His neaiest neighbor wps a railroad en gineer, named Charlie Gordon. ifecv did not live in peace, as neighbors should, although Gordon was a peaceable, kind-hearted man, generous to a fault and brave as a lion. Snoddv heaped all the indigni- in fact, nothing went right. Snoddv was a tall, athleic man, with a voice like a fog-horn, and preteuded to be a great lawyer. Snoddy knew that Gordon would not fight him at hi3 home in the presence of his family aud he took advantage of that fact to abuse him there, but when down town he was very docile and circum spect. But Gordon's time arrived one day. Now Gordon was smaller than Snoddy, but he had an arm like a sledge hammer. Gordon came out of the old ccurt houre one day iu the spring of the year, when court was in progress. Charlie fouud Snoddy on the steps abusing a little carpenter who was about half the size of Snoddy. Gor don listened to the berating Snoddy was giving the little man a few min ut saud then stepped in and said : 'I be ieve my time has come to get even with you,1' and. he laid Snoddy prone on the sidewalk, mixed in the dirty slush and enow wi one good blow with his strong right arm, and as he raised to a perpendicular he dealt him another and another until he scrambled at a good place beyond the reach of the muscle of the throttle puller. They lived neighbors for sometime after that, but fc-neddy never troub led Charlie Gordon any more. The would be lawyer had enough. Lawyers are alwnys fruitful sub jects. 'I hey are erratic full o!" meth ods and they, as a mass, are honor able, generous to "a fault and of all the profe3ions, do more work without pay than any other, with the excep tors of the newspapers, A few years ago while Col. Henry Larcm was the able prosecuting at torney of Peifis county, a young man was arrested for s ealing from a dwelling house which is grand larceny under the Mi souri law. The fellow was . nt to the county jail in default of bond and while theie engaged an attorney paying him a nominal re tainer and was to pay more before trial. When ihe case came up for trial he refused to pay the a'torney more, hence, he in open court with drew from the case. Judge Ryland who was on the bench cast his optics over the court room to select an at torney to be appointed to defend tbe fellow. The court appointed Oapfc. fi- W Barnett, one ot the ablest attorneys at the Pettis county bar to defend the petty thief. Baruett rah both hands into hi3 pockets and graciously accepted the preferment and beckoned to the pris oner who followed the attorney into the consultation room. Now comes the denouement. When the two retired from the court room Barnett asked the pris oner about his esse, if he had any witnesses and so on in a general way, the attorney gazing abstractly out of the window. Finally he turned to ward the prisoner and began talking to him in a discouraging tone, when his client threw his right foot on his left knee and with a pen knife took a piece of leather from the heel of his right shoe and extracted therefrom $75 in good lawful money. He handed the money to the attorney and said : "Take that and make as good a fight as you can I'm in a bad box.3' The two walked back into court the prisoner taking a seat and the attorney with an indescribable look on hi3 face, stood in front of the judge and asked for a continuance until tne sub sequent term, which after tome argu ment was granted. The next terra Barnett tried the case wi'h hi3 usual energy and vigor and a hung jury was the result, and at the next term, I believe the case was dismissed, because the witnesses against the accused failed to material ize. The ways of the theives are dark and mysterious and the methods of a shrewd, amb ious, working attorney are equally mysterious at the same time hrnoraVe. Sdieon Dinwiddie, Deacon.

While Washington was serving his first term, two stages and twelve horses sufficed to carry all the travel ers and goods p:s3ing between New York and Boston, then the two great commercial centers of the country. The harness of the horses was mos Kr made of rope. On the very day when the far mers and ploughmen of Middlesex drove the British out of Lexington, John Harcock was to h tve stood trial for defrauding the customs. In every town prominent characters could be pointed out, who? when the States were under British rule had constant ly stored away in their attics and cel lars smuggled goods. An emigrant steamer now bring3 out each passage from Queenstown more human beings than, a hundred years ago, crossed the ocean in both directions in the space of a twelve months. So late a3 1795, a gentle man who had been abroad was pointed out even in the large cities as "tee gentleman who has been to Europe." Out of the great northwestern territory, ceded and purchased, congress, in 1784, proposed to lay out seventeen new states. They were to be, a3 lar as possible, two degrees of latitude in width and arranged in three tiers. Odd name3 were suggest ed for them, such as Sylvania, (Jher ronesus, Michigania, Assenisipia, Metropotamia, Illinois, Saratoga, Polypotamia, Pelisipia. In the old Dutch churches in New York city, an hour glass was in variably placed at the right hand of the preacher, and a huge sounding board over his head. The first psalm was aunounced by movable numbers hung on three sides of the pulpit. The clerk sat in the deacon's pew. To him were entiusted the notices to be read, which he fastened to a long pole and passed up to the minister. "When the last grain had run out of the glass, his three raps brought the ser mon to a close. The man who may well be called the father of American Methodism, who watched and tended it in its early years, who shaped its course, who found it weak and left it strong, was Franci3 Asburg. He was an English man and sprang from the middle clas3. When, he landed in America in 1772, tbexe nao ccailtfxed Xlvru iTom "Vnrk to Georgia six preachers and a thous and members of the sect. When Burgoyne surrendered, the member ship had increased to seven thousand souls and forty ministers. This growth is th9 more remaskable as every En glish preacher except Asburg deserted h3 fi )ck and went back to England when the Revolution broke out. The Order of the Cincinnati was formed in 1783, at the suggestion of General Knox. Members were ex clusively officers of th army and navy. They had, it was said, been united for eight years in defense of a common cause. STow that the hour of disbandment was near, it seemed but fitting that a, great society should be formed to perpetrate in peace the friendships formed in war and to en able them to deliberate in secret on tbe welfare of the union. But the country heard with mingled feelings of alarm and disgust that a mtl'taiy order had been established, thai its honors had been made hereditary, tjat French me a had been admitted to its ranks and that the eagle anu the blue ribbon were daily to be seen at the proudest courts. The order for many year3 met with violent opposi tion. "Those little girls across the street, neve" go out mamma. They look from the window all day long. I wonder why they dn'c play "out as we do ?" "Oh ! they're very much t be pitied their poor mother never has heard of Dr. BulFs Cough Syrup." A Business Change. Messrs. John Hartshorn and E. H. Wilson, two well known and exceed ingly popular young busi es3 men of Sedalia, have bought the abstract pud r -ntal business of .Porter & Van Kiper and ad? d It to their large and grow ing insurance bu3ines3 and will here afer cc duct the two together. Hartshorn & Wiism are enterprising, amb'tious, reliable business men and 'ti3 of such young men the future of Sedalia is to' be made. May they prosper in their new venture.

Judge Gunnell, the gentleman' named below, is a relative of Mes dames Cotton and Smith, and former ly resided in Sedalia, where he was highly regarded. He is equally well thought of in the west, and last No vember was elected to the Colorado state senate from the Leadvil'e dis trict. As an evidence of the h;h. esteem in which he is held in his present home, the following clipping from a recent Denver newspaper is copied: " Judge A.T. Gunnellof Leadville has come naturally and quickly inta the position of leader on the Demo cratic side of the senate. He is a clear, terse, forcible debater. Though quiet and unobtrusive of manne, he commands attention and respect. Judge Gunnell was for several years j-dge of the county court of Lake county. In that position he com manded the confidence and respect of those of aU parties. He was just and fair and able. Since his retirement from the bench he has been in lucra tive practice in bis city. "When the Democrats of Lake county last fall were looking for strong and popular men for legislative candidates, whom they wou'd have a chance to elect, be was one of the first ihey chose." Another sharp Ad vaaee Whca. From the Sedalia Produce Ex change, t'ie Bazoo learned the fol io wi jg facts fiom R. P. Archer con cerning the St. Louis grain market of yesterday. Ihe bus, said Mr. Ai cher, more than any one else are 2 3porsible for the two cents decline on Friday. Thursdays advancs of 3 cents to 100 for May wheat seemed to b3 a tempt ing plum for them to pluck, and in their efforts to real'z, offered more wheat than the demand warrant d hence the dec ite. Yeitrrday, how- ; ever, there appeared a desire of almost every one to own a little whnat This demand and that of a few an us shorts rushed Muy wheat up to 00. closing at the top. The curb in the afternoon was 101 jMaycrn, in sympathy with wheat, advanced to and closed at 50J, May !oats46J-' 'We expect lively markets 1 for the next 3 monti'S," said Mr. Archer, "and the lucky spaculatoris going to make big money. You see, we will yet have some severe weather, wlrch will craate uneas with tbe shoit3 in July and August. Already there ard reports of a corne of May ! wheat, but May is too far off to pay -aay attention to such report."
