Official Paper of the City of Sedalia TELEPHONE NUMBERS. Business oflice 48 lob rooms lby J. WEST GOODWIN PUB LISHE3 THE ONLY SUCCESS F UL JOURNAL SEDALIA EVER HAD. Springfield Leader. Among the patents just issued is one to Claude Freeseof St. Louis for a garter. The gjrter is something like the churn, there is always room for one more patent. There some reasons for not wishing to be a millionaire. Had David Beals of Kansas City been a poor man, no body would have thought of abduct ing one of his children. The extraordinary falling off in the establishment of tin plate works since the election is the most noticable thing in the world. Before the ides of November set in it was a poor day that, by telegraph from some part of the union or other, the establishment of tin plate factories was not heralded to the world. The election of j Major McKinley seems to have paralyzed the business. Eugene Schuyler, a most thorough ly equippad diplomat, was denied confirmation by the sen tte for a di plomatic office bscausc bciuse of a history he had written ; Walt Whit man was discharged from the war of fice because of his poems, and now a hapless novelist named Bogy is de prived of his berth in the pension of fice because of .his novel. It seem that persons desiring to prosper in politics should eschew the writing of anything except checks. Sir Edwin Arnold, according to the stories that are being told of him, has had some odder experiences than delivering lectures to small uudienees. It is related of him, that in order to win a wager nude with a lady friend, he climbed 13,000 feet to the top of Fuji San, in Japan, and wrote on the edge of the crater, a picturesque poem of ninety-two lines. When a poei can get up that high in the world, he ought to stay there he is too rich for ordinary mortals. Berahardt.Patti, Langtry and An derson are all said to be ambitious to be known among the literati and each is writing a book. With the exception of Bernhardt, who is said to possess genuine literary talent, the "books" will probably be written by some poor literary back, who is glad enough to get the m aey for the work and allow the fame to go where it is meant to go. I:i this connection, however, it seems like a grievous shame that real taleut must be thus baudicapped. R. T. Gentry, of Solatia, has an nounced his candidacy tor tUo oflice of state treasn-er. Dick Gantry, as lie is familiarly called by his intimate friends is one of the moat popular young men in .Missouri. There is nut a county in the slate tint does not cautain some of his f rieuds. He is an able financier and would make a very acceptable state treasurer. His ability like his democracy, cannot be ques tioned. Mr. Gentry has very many friends in Barton county. Lamar Democrat. The above is a specimen of the many words of praise which are being published by the press of the state and certainly Mr. Gentry's chances are growing more promising every day. It was a little hard on the Y. M. G. A. to announce that "another dance" had been given there, but typograph ical errors will occur. A few days ago an exchange contained the announce ment that Miss , a well known society belle who was in attend ance at a party the night before was "most chastely but richly gartered." Of course in was intended to say that the young lady was "most chastely and richly gov.ned," but it was one of those unfoituuate blunders which are liable to occur in even the best tegu lated newspaper otfices, and it is to be hoped that the male rtlatives of the young lady mentioned did not go "gunning" for the uufortunate'editor. Moberly and Sedalia are the only two convention cities iu Missouri. In number capacity and excellence of hotels as well as in accessibility, Moberly is superior to her more suc cessful rival, our great draw-back be ing the lack of an opera house or hall of large seating capacity, fctate con ventions are of great value to a city, especially a growing citv like Moberly and when but one thing is lacking aud that an opera house, it should be forth coming. Mobsrly Democrat. The Democrat is mistaken in saying that in the excellence of her hotels Moberly is superior to Sedalia, unless the opinion thus formed is because the Democrat has bzen a guest at the "Goat House," at some Mme in his history, in this city. Sedalia has ex cellent hotels as well as Moberly, but at the same time it does seem as if Moberly might have an opera house and the Democrat should help the enterprise along as much a3 possible. The kidnapping of a child in Kan sas City shows what straits rogues are reduced to for money aud yet the only wonder is,that the crime is not a commoner one. Servants and nurses are hired without regard to their associates or respectability aud the trust which is reposed in them is as tonishing when it is rumored that there is no proof of their reliability beyond their mere word. The intel ligence office has made'anything like proper references out of the question aud while the helplessness of house keepers too often renders it necessary to secure help at all hazards, yet some method should be devised by which they should be tested, beside mere capability before they are given the run of the house and indiscriminate contact with children. It is quite possible that unless the Kansas City kidnappers are severely punished there may be many similar cases to chron icle. There is no telling what the betting fever may lead men to do. Instances have been known where men bav bet all their earthly possessions, bet their wives and children and mothers-in-law, bet they would ride in s wheelbarrow etc It however re mained for John Springer and William Noble of Botsum, O., to get uj. iomething novel in that line. Tb former b:t the latter,sn oyster supper, last Thuriday night that he could Ei i he longest on a rail fence. The be" was accepted and the men immediately weut to roost. At 8 o'clock Friday morning both men were still on tin fence, having spent the night there, while their respective families supplic them with hot coflee end warm clothing, and the whole community became deeply intere-ted in the out come. Springer wa3 a heavy man while his opp mcnt only weighed 110 pounds. After twelve hours on the fence Noble looked almost as fresh as when he .'at down, but his heavy companion appeared to be suffering for a cushion. There certainly i- 1 it 1 A some occasions wucn iiesu is ma desirable, aud for fence sitting bones seem to have the call. The ludicrous spect. c!e which tiie leuce roosters pre sented, however, will be long fading from the miuds of those who saw thorn, aud Ohio bad as her politics in s- me quarters is, can make her fortune if she will properly advertise her two novel betters.

Samuel Miller, of Blufton, will be here, so will Jacob Faith, of Moutevulo, and Bed, of Boonv.lle, but where will be the two bottles of wine fpm New Mexico ? The fruit growers of Pettis and adjoining counties ought not to forget the State Horticultural bociety which meets December 1st, 2nd and 3d, at the court house, in bedalia. If you have pretty flowers you wish everybody to see, bring them to the court house this we- k to the State Horticultural Society ; a place will be provided to show them, besides premiums will be given on Tuesday or Wednesday. Let everybody welcome the State Horticulturalists this week, and help them to have an enjoyable time in the city. .Miss Helen Gallic, Professors Chance at;d Gregg and the Congrega tional choir and Y. M. C. A. choir will discourse the music. The State Horticultural Society which convenes in this city ncxtTues day will be a representative body of the best and largest fru:t growers of the state. They will discuss nutters of viul interest to tlmt line of industry. There will unquestionably be a good attendance from abroad and it is hoped that local interest will be fully in line.

Well, 1 sh( uld sav so. and I hope the people of I ettis county will unanimously agree to the propo sition to be submitted.'' Hon. J. H. Renard. of West Vir- fill in vena siipn nt HVifpl Ivnispr vpsIit. day by a Gojsiper, aud in speaking of iue political situation ue sum: -ine favorite for the democratic nomina tion for the presidency in my part of the state is without doubt, Mr. Cleve land. There are other gentlemen, probably equally popular, but it is Generally conceded that Mr. Cleve land is the strongest democrat that can be brought forward so far as all tedious of the country are concerned. Speaking about the applications made for charity said Sanitary Officer Murphy to the Gossipcr, there are all kinds of calls. For instance yester day morning a very daintily attired and healthy colored woman called on me for supplies. I asked her how she was iu want whethur she had child ren suffering, etc. "Oh, no," she replied, "I am all alone aud making good wage, but I heard there were some nice things to distribute and I thought I might as well have some of them as any one else.' "Don't crowd in and shut off the heat from passengers," said Depot- master Oarncs yesterday morning to a lot of loafers who were crowding around the stove. And Mr. Carnes was exactly right, as he generally is. The depot passenger rooms are not intended for loafers. It was not built for that purpose, and to allow them to take possession would be an injus tice to the company as well as the traveling public. The Bazoo is gkd to know that Mr. Carats sizes up the situation. "I never saw the people of any city conduct themselves more creditably than did Scdaliaus uu Thaukgiviug D.iy," said aud Ohio 3treet merchant to the Gossiper. "While this day is set apart for the purpose of giving thanks to the Ruler of the universe for the good things He has done for us, it is too often the case that it devoted to hilarity and the over use of atdent spirits. Some think they must observe the dy by filling up to the brim uot with turkey, but with something Blronger than coffee. There was but little drunkenness in Sedalia. there was not a c ise in the police court the morning following." Sheriff O. P, Waller, of Daviess county. Mo., and a very ph-asaut gtu f emim was in the city yesterday, and wis met by the Gossiper. In speak ing of his portion of the state North west Missouii he said : "Our poi- tion of the state and i specially luvies county, is improving in a most won derful decree. We have been blessed with fine crops and quite a number of immigrants have m.tde their homes within our boundery lines. Gallatin, the county seat, is an old town, but has within the past year or two added very greatly in the way of improve ments. "Mrs. Philippine Overstolz, of St. Louis, is saiu to ue the only young lady 1 resident Grant danced with during his occupancy of the Whit House, remarked a gentleman to the Gossiper. "She was his partner iu the dauce when he visited the Mound City after his inauguration. Another intciesting fact in the life of Mrs. Overstolz is that she once came near buying for $5,000 certain salmon fisheries in Oregon that were sold a few years later for $1,000,000. She is a lady of considerable wealth, and competent, if fortune became adverse to her, to practise medicine, for she is a graduate of a Western medical col lege." "Did you ever he.ir of a P. S. to a telegram ?" inquired Mr. W. D. Steele of the Gossiper yesterday. The inquiry was a stunner. If half a dozen postcripts hsd been added to a letter written by a lady it would have been taken as orthodox but a post script to a telegram "Well," said Mr. Stcelo J"its a fact. I received this dispatch :" V. 1). St ele, Sedalia, Mo. Meet me in Chicago on Monday morning. T. F. P. S. Take the M K MiTcnrjJi. & T. train. M. Mr. Steele will at once, if he hasn't already done so, go to the relief of his friend. President Gentry of the Missouri World's Fair commission said recently to the Gossiper: "There ia every prospect that Missouri will have one of the most complete and finest ex hibits at the World's Fair, and it is also a source cf gratification to know i Mil m m for infants Cast orl a !g jo well adapts to children th.it f rtvomiuend itaHBuro-riortoacy tin-scrfjitiou Ln& n to II.

The splendid crops: i;,.;.., n- v, 1 of the past season show what is possi- uiu tor our ncii eon. x. iiei"iii)oriH2 county tells of of a farmer w ho on 320 acres, raised this year 100 acres of wheat aud 100 acres of corn. From the 100 acres of wheat he jrot a crop of 3,500 bushels, which sold at the near.st railroad station at S5 cauts a bushel, or a total of 82,975. The corn is ctill in shock, hut goud judijes say that the yield will be at hast iiftv ousr.eis to tn acre, winch at ull cents a bushel would net the farmer S2.500. So that in wheat and corn he would clear 85,475. Besides grain he had twenty acres iu hay, au orchard of twentv acre of heavily laden apple trees, fifty hetd of cattle and a poul try yard. Ho calculates that bis farm this year wiil brine him in 810.- 000 above all expenses. Hon. J. B. Thomas of Albany.Mo. one of the officers of he Grand Lodire A. F., and A. M., who left yesterday after haviug spent several d-ye in the city, is a member of the state execu tive committee aud one of the most itdlueutidl democrats in Northwest MUsjuri. In speaking of the iiolitical situation,he said : "So far as Missouri is concerned 1 think the party is in excellent shtpe, with no divisions aud no bickerings. It needs organization, of course, but measures are now on foot in (hat direction, and when the campaign of 1892 fairly opna the compactness and unswerving attitude of the democracy of M:ss uri Kill be pointed to with the sme rride that Gen. Bee, in the memorable battle of Bull Run.poimmg to Jacksou's men, said : "There stauds Jackson, like a stone wall." The preference of North west Mi-souri, as far as I c.n learn, is decidedly for Mr. Cleveland as the denivcratic nominee, with s.me strong western man for the second place. How have I enjoyed my visit to Se dalia? To use a slang phrase,"buliy." 1 thins you have one of the nicest and most progressive cities in the west peopled with the soul of hospi tality." All the older residents of Sedalia will remrmber Champ Vaughn. He ilourishid in Sedalia in 1870 as the campaign editor of a pa per called the "Liberal Republican," which supfiortetl B. Gratz Brown for governor. Champs father wasJuoge John C, Vaughn, w. o was at one lime police judge of Leavenworth. Kansas. I think at the same time his ton was in S.Ialia. The old man is now 83 years of ge and an inmate of the Home for Old Men, iu Ciucin- nate, and has been for ten years past. He was once prominent in Kansas af fairs and way a great iower in the politics of the territory aud after wards siate. Vaughn lived in Kansas from 1S53 to 1875, and when broken iu fortune he returned to Ohio. Here bad luck led him into the poor house, where be was found and placed iu the Home for Old Men. He was prominent in Ohio affairs before he cime to Kansas, and when Salmon P. Chase was elect ed Uuited States senator by the free soilers, he was a candidate against Chase lor the caucus nomination, coming within two votes of getting it. After that he became interested in the newspaper business, and was one of the founders of the Chicago Trib une. Judge Vaughn was a drinking man. Jae tirauK neavuy lor many years, nis son, inamp, arang atso. He drank more than the old man. The judge wants to be cremated when he dies.

If a nun, who was born under the American flag, whether within fifteen mileS of PIvillOIlth Itnpfe nr nnt is not in favor of Thankssrivinjr. he ! should be banished or compelled to j live with his mother-in-law always, I attended church at Columbia, TheWtor gave his congregation ,i TI,ni,o,.:n: , His sermon was communistic in one sense of that word, which grates so harshly upon the ear of of every true Ameiicii. '1 he Doctor wants an equal division of the b:ed on Thanksgiving day. All to have bread alike. Not one to have corn bread, another rye bread, auother white bread, another sour bread and so on through the cata logue, but if one have corn dedgers ail must be supplied alike. He did not say a word about cake or pie. They both "go" Thanksgiving day. The D .ctor did not siy a word about dividing the cake and pie that was furnished in Missouri from Booae county to ihe Arkansas line to the average haw-eater. It wa a very practical sermon, full of well digested thought ami just such a one as it is necessary to make old money bags to loosen the purse strings aud trive to the poor to cladden the , hearts of those who. njssiblv. from I their neglect, or indolence, or misfor- tune are un .ble to nrovide for them- selves. At the close of the sermon a col lection was taken up, while the organ played slow music, in order for the people to hunt around the dark re cesses of their trouser pockets, to find a nickle to contribute to the poor and suffering in Columbia. The Gossiper loves Puritans. Hurrah for the Puritans. Three cheers for the Mayflower, Plymouth Rock and Thanksgiving. It is over for this year. We love the past and its dear as sociations they are ever Sacred. Whenever the Gossiper sees Bob White's appeliteand Walter Williams' capacity tested, he thinks of the struggles and hunger of our forefathers aud what a poor way they had of get ting along iu the world, anyhow, and the tears of sympathy run down every create in his shirt bosom until it fills his boots with discomfort. They did not eat pie with a fork. They were out of pie. The Puritans I mean, not White aud Williams. The origin of Thanksgiving occurred a long time ao, before the war and before Joe Bowers and Ellis Smith run for sheriff, but notwithstanding that it is beautiful to coutemplate. Imagine a whole colony all barefooted sitting on the "ragged edge of despair" and Plymouth Rock, with their feet hanging over it3 sides, looking sea ward, and not a bite to eat in the house aud when, just as all had given up hope the lone looked-for supplies hove in sight, and swept up to the docks just iu the nick of time to save their souls aud fill their stom achs with Roast Turkey. Broiled Oysters. Cranberry Jelly. Plum Pudding. Mince Pie. Bauaonas. Kelly Island Grapes. Happy Puritans Glorious Thanks giving. All look now for Thanksgiving just as they did then. Some look for it becauso they are out of meat. Others want it so they can have an excuse to get full of Jef ferson City sheep dip and take an excursion to Dwight. The Gossiper hopes to be on deck on Thanksgiving 1S92 and "at home", to all who hunger.
