THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO. JUNE 9, 1891.
5 BAZOO GOSSIP. A LOVE SONG. Street day in Jane, blest day iu Jane, Joyous, jubiiant and in tune With fl owiug brook and whispering breeze And all of nature'.) harmonies, Come back again from yonder skies And gladden these awaiting ejes. Return, return, but brine with you My sweetheart with the eyes of blue; Mr lady with the tres3es long And speech sweet as thrush's song Provided she, in Lore's exile. Has kept for me her heavenlicst smile ! Gtnrge if. Ftml. The weather prophet of East Seda Ha says the rain h over. If the weather next week does not improve, someboJy will be githering stories. Every BooaviHe editor, who is about to leave that town now, is spotted. If he has a woman any where about him, the police whistle is blown and the train stopped. A Pettis county man dropped deed one evening last week while milking a cow. This ought to be a warning to all husbands. Let your wife do the milking. Fulton Telegraph. Brother Bell is rather hard on the women, did he express himself thusly down in Staun'.on, Virginia, a few years ago? Lester Penrose Gordon Gumming, a country gentleman who resides near Baltimore, Maryland, says that his brother, Sir William Gordon Cum niing, of London baccarat scandal notoriety, is affected with St. Vitus' dance and that he involuntarily toys with the cards when he is at the table. If this statement be true, there are several gamleinen in the city of Se dalia who are similarly troubled with St. VitU3 Terpsichorean eccentricities "Do you know," said Mr. Rippey, of Sedalia, who lived for awhile in the state of California, "that the black oranges which are occasionally seen in the markets are caused by the fog from the sea settling on them ? Well, this is a fact. The fog does not destroy the flivor of the orange, but it injures their sale simply becacse peo ple prefer a bright, unspotted orange or apple, though it may not be any better in reality than the more favored fruit." News Agent Price informs the Go-siper that a fine-baired fellow from Kunsas City was in Sedalia the past week for the purpose of starting a dog pound, but the outlook for reaping a canine harvest was not promising ana he returned home. Sedalia is ever ready and willing to welcome enterprising gentlemen from abroad who may desire to locate in her midst, but she hesitates to fling her arms wildly about the neck of a man whose aspirations reach no higher than impounding tagless pups. A singular incident wa related to the Gossiper yesterday. Eight years ago Mr. W. T. Tewmey, a salesman in the Grand Central mercantile bouse of Frank B. Meyer & Bro., lost in his yard on Third street handsome watch charm, which was peculiarly prized because it had been presented to him by bis wile, urn cent search was made for it, but to no avail. Last Tuesday, after the terrific rain and hail storm, Mr. Tewmey happened to eo out into the yard, and, strange to say, saw the shining keepsake lying on the surface of the ground, still in a good state of preser vation. The heavy rain had washed the earth from over it Another step forward for charming womankind. She has been installed as usher in an Eastern Methodist church and is performing the duties of the office not only to the entire satisfac tion of the elders and pastor, but to tne delight of the young men of whom permit themselves tO 02 lured within the walls of the sanctu ary so that they may be seated by the modest and pretty ushers. This is the entering wedge for a new sphere for attractive women. If they make good church ushers, why will they not make excellent theatre ushers ? It is a generally conceded fact that a wo man is always conscientious in the dis cbarge of her duty and that she al ways endeavors to further the inter ests of her employer to the best of her ability. That is one of woman's virtues as a servitor, and there is no question as to her being a valuable adjunct in every description. One of our celebrated lawyers stop ped on his way down Ohio street to his office to get a cigar. He was looking cross and surly and the ven der of cigars, who is also celebrated as an angler, handed him the havanas, repeating slowly : "Yon cn watch and you cm pray And you can shout all day, But j on can't go a-fishing And observe prohibition Cause a man ain't built that way." At first the lawyer lowered the speaker ominously, but as the last lino m ,f n TV 7, lace was all ht up and his sweet smile nnnn broke out into peals of laughter and all the days since be has been trying to make the words "fishing" and "prohibition" fit into a rhythmical measure. The hat plays an important part in demonstrative courtesy. It is not every man, however, who can un cover his "caput" tracefuily ; yet the art is worth acquiring, for the bat sa lute when elegantly performed, always makes a favorab'e impression on soci ety, and especially on the ladies. Hands aud fortunes have been won, ere new, by hat-in-hand politeness. Some gentlemen imagine that merely touching the brims of their "chapeau" is a sufficient expression of their re spect for the ruling sex. They are mistaken. The ladies are very exact ing on this point. The hat must be lined fatrlv from the beau to satisfy them, and a slight flourish of the same, accompanied by an oueisant movement of the bead and spinal column, renders the act, in their opinion, doubly charming. it is probable that there are tho js ands of young men in this couutry who would rnve S10U apiece; to be able to unbat killingly. Eaborate attempts at this exploit are male every afternoon in the fashionable thoroughfares, but it must be con fessed that mst of them are failures. Our exquisites overdo the thing. There is a golden mean in the man agement of the hit, which they un- fortuoatety miss their ambition over leaps itself. In all the ranee of the fruit orchards, is there any fruit more beau tiful than the cherry I I he tree is a dream of loveliness, from the time it ia clothed m the wealth of snowy blossoms in April until it gleams with crimson fruit in July. No fruit tree blossom is more use! by Japan ese in decorations, it rivals the almond flower and the chrysanthemum The cherry leaf is also made use of exten sively in various ways in Japanese design, twin .'eaves, overlapping at the edges, are curved into graceful little dishes to hold small dishes for the table; and there are various other ways in which the leaves, as well as the blossoms and fruit of the tree serve as ornamental design, Who that has lived in the country does not remember the time when the de lightful announcement was made that 'the cherries are ripe?" The fruit is always associated with the song of birds, and all the fragrance and beauty of early summer. The robins are in a tumult of delight at this time. They often build their nests in cherry trees and are the hrst to duover when the fruit is ripe. How different the fruit seems when it is retailed in the dus'y markets or when displayed in uninviting piles on the street ven ders' saIU! It loses half it beauty. JNo fruit has more poetic associations or is more surrounded by classic legend than this. Many yeara ago, when Judge Milo Blair, now of sedalia, was running the Boonville -Eagle, a red-hot repub lican paper, he received a letter from a man named McCarty, who resided in Boise City. Idaho, enclosing 82 and directing him to send the Eagle to his address for one year, provided it was not a "radical sheet In the event that the Eagle was of this stripe, he rather roughly directed that Judge Blair should take the 82 and have either a democratic or independent paper, published in Boonville, sent to him. The wagrish Eagle editor, who always had a keen sense of the hu morous, and was hard to head off when it came to perpetrating a prac tical joke, felt somewhat offended at the arrogance oi his Idaho correspond ent, so he determined to teach him a lessou in manners and get even with him. Taking the 82 across the street to old man Joachimi, who published an independent paper, printed entirely in German, Judge B.air subscribed for it and had it sect to McCarty, In about two weeks the German editcr received a letter from Boise Ci y, saying: "Nix come a rouse, Dutchman in his house. Stop that paper. I can't read a word of it. Please to give my compliments to that d d old fool of the Eagle. Signed, McCarty." That was the last time Judge Blair ever beard of the Idaho man, who wanted a democratic or inde pendent paper in preference to a "black republican sheet." THE GhEAfEST STRIKE.

In speaking of the late Encincer Wicks, the Parsons Sun says that he has "been a familiar figure in this city for many years and there are few en gineers in the service of the M. K. & 1. railroad who had a wider circle of friends. He commenced railroading on the M, K. & T. over twenty years aco and with the exception of a few years has been constantly in the ser - vice of the road, lie was regarded as one of the most careful and pains taking engineers, against whom fewer mishaps have been chargable than al most any engineer in the service of the road, and the announcement of his death will be read with sincere re gret not only by his fellow trainmen, but the officials of the compmy, be has so faithfully served for so many ye are."

Geo. H. Simms, the baker, who undertakes the tramp from Galves ton, Texas, to Chicago, arrived in the city at noon yesterday. His route is by foot entirely and he has made Sedalia in 33 days, only stopping long enough in one place to obtain the necessaries of existence. In re lating the circumstances of his travels to a Bazoo reporter he said : "I left Galveston, Texas, on Sat urday, May 2, at 9 p. m., via the Houston & Texas Central to Denissn. From there I took the M., K. & T. and by that route I arrived in your city. I have encountered many mis haps during my trip and expect to have many more. alv baggage con sists, or rather did consist of a section of a rubber coat and a club which I now have with me." "One night while enjoying the blessings of a quiet sleep in a box car at Denison I was suddenly ttwakeued and in my rush to escape from the car I left the coat. While making my way through the Indian Nation I was met on the out skirts of South Canadian and charged with stealing a dot?, the only crime that I was ever troubled about. I have been treated royally every place I staved and have nianaxei to obtain a square meal." "A younir man by the name of Charles Bloomberry starred on the trip with me. our tazed out on the end of the 104th mile. But that was nothing to do with mv walk." "Is this fot a wager or is it for pleasure ?" "It is for 81,000, providing I make the trip in bO days, from the time left Galveston." Mr. Simms is 28 vears old and a baker by trade.

The case of Thomas Williamson, the notorious Pettis county murderer, was argued before the second division of the supreme court yesterday. Pros ecuting attorney George Longan's ef fort is spoken of as a strong and elo quent oue. Attorney smith made a powerful plea tor his client. The following reasons were given why the verdict of the Pettis county jury should be set aside : 1. Because the court committed error in sustaining the demurer nf the state to the plea in abatement filed by the defendant to the indict ment in this cause, and in holding said plea in abatement not good and sufficient, and in compelling and re quiring defendant to plead to the said indictment. 2. Because the court erred in over ruling the challenge of defendant to various jurors forming the panel of forty from whom the jury that tried this cause was selected, and in holding and ruling that said men were compe tent jurors, when by their examina tion it appeared they had formed and expressed such opinions as in law dis qualified them to serve as jurors in said case ; that of and among the same were the following: Albert P. Hyatt, and Jacob J. Farner, who actually served cn the jury that tried said case ; al-o W. J. Mann and Richard Taylor and Clinton H. Oliver and Henry J. Dehmey and Joseph T. Davidson and Hugh W. Anderson and Joseph . Turner. 3. Because the court erred in per mitting the prosecuting attorney in his opening statement to the jury to comment acd make statements as to the death of Charles Moore, against the objections of defendant. 4. Because 'he court admitted im proper evidence and testimony on be half of the state, against the objec tions of the defendant. 5. Because the court excluded proper evidence and testimony offered by defendant in his behalf herein. 6. Because the court gave improper instructions to the jury on behalf of the state ; and this also against the objections of defendant. i . Because the court refused proper instructions to the jury asked by the defendant. 8. Because the instructions given to the jury by the court were and are improper and erroneous and do not and did not place the case in a proper light before the jury, and because said instructions so given do not instruct the jury on all the law and points in the case and on all matters necessary for their proper determination of the case. 9. B.cause the court gave improper instructions of its own motion. 10. Because the court gave to the jury contradictory instructions some ot the instructions contradicting others so given. 11. Because the court permitted the prosecuting attorney, in his clos ing speech to the jury, to make im proper comments and remarks. 12, Because the verdict of the jury is against the weight ot the evidence, and is unsurported in law by the evi dence. 13. Because said verdict is against the instructions of the court. 14. Because said verdict is not ac cording to the law or the evidence, and isuusupported by either the law or the evidence.

Leist, Prof. Chance, Misses Helen Gallie, Mary Doble, Rose and Marie Richardson and Sedalia Glee club. The meeting adjourned to meet again at Bonner's hotel, on Tuesday night, June 9, at s o clock. CYCLE NOTES. The weather being against wheel ing of late, the cyclers have laid at rest. B. M. Lyon, one of Sedalia' most efficient cyclers, spent last Sun day in Clinton accompanied by his wheel. Sedalia's only lady Bicyclist has recently. ben married and left the city. Who is the next lady to ride the wheel ? A large number of Sedalia wheel men expect to attend the Missouri division meet at Carthage, July 3d, 4th and 5th. The cyclers had several run called for the neighboring towns, but owing to the weather they had to be postponed. Why is it that Joe H. Kelly baa not been riding his wheel this season ? We are sorry our enthusiastic wheel men are falling in the rear. Chas. M. Ellis, the famous wheelman of Sedalia, has sold his wheel and retired from the turf for the present, but it is hoped he will again be with us soon. "There goes another oae of them dod-blasted fools on a bysickle. A man that will waste his time riding one of them things, when he can sit in the shade and play poker, is a fool sure 'nuffl Ain't he, Bdl?" "Yep." And the game was resumed, the critics concentrating their mental fac ulties upon a ten cent jack-pot. We take too much medicine, employ too many doctors, seek too much outside help. Half of our dis eases are preventable or dissipated by attention to the common-sense rules of health and exercise. There is no earthly blessing so great as health, no way so sore to secure and preserve it as to exercise, and no method of ex ercising is so perfect as cycling. Cycling round the world is get ting to be a very common fad. Ton latest tourist to start around the world on a bicycle is Jacob Bauer, of Louis ville, Ky. None of the tourists now started on this trip will stick to the cycle as religiously as did Tom Stev ens. They will utilize other means of transportation when the country af fords very bad riding or is dangerous. They will not cycle through Persia or Afghanistan, as did the great Ste vena.
