A Namesake of the Republican Nominee for President, Meets With a Wanton and Tragic Death in Sedalia. Frank DdJarnette ia wearing a heavy band of crepe on his hat to day. lie bad two pet crows, one of which he named "Clevelaud," and the other "Harrison." Thee pets were given to parading about the siloon premises every day, and were also in the habit of miking excursions over to the Union depot, a block away. lbese sable-suited birds bad become great favorites with those who knew them and were allowed the right of way wherever they went. Unluckily, early yesterday mornjng "Harrison" was strolling along the depot platform, when he wa3 met by a well-dressed but cruel man, who, wantonly and maliciously, struck him a fatal blow with a gold beaded um brella. Ibe innocent crow keeled over, a corpse before quite a number of persons, who witnessed the wautou deed. The news of the calamity was not long in reaching Mr. Dejarnette, and when he was inform ed that his pet had flapped his feath ers for the last time, anger and grief failed his bosom. He burned to the depot and had Officer Murphy place the stranger under arrest and lock him up. Shortly afterward, the slayer affect ed a compromise and was released by paying the owner .85 damages. This was merely nominal, as Mr. DeJar- nette would not have taken 850 for the bird. "Harrison-' was buried yesterday, while "Cleveland" his sable "suit of mourning already prepared for an emergency of this sad character is left alone to grieve over his dead mate. The beautiful badges.for the birds, which the owner was about to place around their necks, are now mourn ful relics of man's inhumanity to an humble and innocent namesake of the occupant of the White House. K tILKOADS. A Part of the Missouri Pacific Formerly Turned Over to Gonld. Kansas City Mo., June 17. At a mreting'of the officers of the company held in twuusas Uity, Kan., tnis morn ing, the Kansas City Wyandotte and Northwestern road was formerly over to tbe Uouid interest, it was the result of Mr, Gould's recent pur chases of stock. I he Gould interest was represented by B. P. Waggener of Atchison and, and Geo. C. Smith of St. Louis, Assistant General Mana ger of the Missouri Pacific. The old officers and Board of Directors resign ed, and the following gentlemen were elected to fill their places : Presi dent Georga C. Smith, Secretary and Treasurer, W. P. Waggnervice presi dent. David Martin, Ditec tors Geo. C. Smith. David Martin. W. P. Waggener, E G. Merriam, J. W. Orr David Kelso, U. 01. Kitnburn J w. Waggener, George J. Gould, Elijah Robinson, A. H, Calef and Guv Phillips. The following board was selected for the Lawrence, Em poria and Southwestern Railway, which is identical in point of fact with the Wyandotte: B. P. Waggener, Georee C. bmith. David Kelso and A H. Calef. The organization of the road is now fairly in Mr. Gould's bands, but the line will continue in Receiver Erb's possession until the court orders a sale, and no date for that event has yet been fixed. When it comes to. a sale, however, there is no doubt as to who the purchaser will be. Mr. Gould is tbe largest bondholder and can, of course, better afford to purchase it than anyone else. As joon as the road passes into the hands of the Gould interest the officers selected to-day will assume charge. This means that tbe road is to be operated as a part of the Missouri racibc system. The line will be one of the best feed ers the Missouri Pacific has. BACK FROM WEST POIXT. Lieut. John H. Parker, who was appointed to tbe military academy at West Point by Hon. John T. Heard, four years ago, from Green Kidge, Pettis county, passed through Sedalia iesterday, on his return home, lieutenant Parker was graduated a few days ago, standing 49 in a clas of 60 He has a furlough until Srp tember, when he will join the regi ment not yet kn;wn what one to which he will be assigned.

Davis' injuries are quite serious. LOCAL LAWN TENNIS. Hie Pastime Club of Sedalia A Brilliant Tournament to be Held This Summer Some Crack Play ers. Lawn tennis is a game which is fast taking a strong hold on the athletic world iu this country. It is a game which has had an existence of barely a dozen years, although possessing many of the features of the ancient English game of tennis, which Shake speare speaks of in many of his plays. One charm of the game is the fact that it is free from the taint of pro fessionalism and is strictly an amateur sport, which accounts for its spread throughout all the English speaking nations of the world. It is a'so true that the pastime possesses a rather ar istocratic tone from the fact that it requires quite an outlay of money to prepare and keep in order the grounds, as well as to provide the necessary apparatus of the game. These facts have resulted to some extent in making lawn tennis a society game. Indeed, such might possibly be expected, as in the middle ages tennis was the recreation of the kings and nobles of England and France. The game is now subject to the control of a national organization, composed of various clubs throughout the country. The Pastime Tennis club, of th city, is a member of this organization. While the game can be played by la dies, they can only play a ladies' game. It requires no muscle to become an expert, but the greatest agility and endurance are necessary. Its demands on the staying powers of one are greater than are required for the game of foot ball or base ball, while the scientific plays, curves and drives that may be made, make it comparable to. the game of billiards. Tbe game may be witnessed by an out sider at the courts of the Pastime club near Grand avenue and Fifth street, by a request ot authority of any mem ber of tbe club. Among the leading gentlemen play ers of tbe city are : Mr. Thomas J. Sturges, Rev. Alexander Allen, Chas. Ernmert, Wm. B. Mackey, Merritt Yeater, Rev. J. R Stevenson, Chas. A. Richardson, Lee Montgomery and Sam and Mint Johns. The lady play ers who have attained special skill are: Misses Jessie Smith, Stella Yeater, Mamie Mackey and Mabel Richard son. There are quite a number of other devotees to the game in the city, some of whom doubtless would be entitled to go in t'ie list of first-class players, besides those mentioned. The Pastime club proposes to hold, during the summer, the first of a series of annual tournaments to determine who is the respective champion gentleman and lady player of the city. The occasion will not only be quite a society event, but will be a great treat to such lovers of ath letics as may be invited to be present as guests and spectators. A POUR WRETCH. John Johnson was brought in from the Indian Territory yesterday morn ing by his brother-in-law, A. J. Bow lin, ot Miller county, Mo., who was taking him to the insane asylum at Fulton. Johnson had already been confined there three months, besides having been an inmate of the Texas insane asylum 'three years. He is thirty-eight years old and has a wife and two children. Strange and hor rible to relate, bis insanity was caused by a nameless habit practised since his marriage. He is one of the most forlorn, miserable, shameful looking wretches the reporter's eye ever n sitd on. WILL BEGIN PRACTICE. Dr. Sidnev A.
