A Butcher in Trouble. Albert Lee is a butcher anil has been doing hi:.inrs at the winter of fceventh a.i s'tcet-. Js; pt:r- chased meat iiuii; i.ie Anuor rui-itiug company under the name of A. L. Lee, bis wife, who owns some pro') erty. The A rmour Packing company got a judgment against Lee a few days ago for meat furnished him. The butcher shop and fixtures were at 'tached but a third party named Cunningham stepped in and claimed' to have purchased the shop. To-day Lee was charged before Judge Fisher of having ob tained meat to the amount of $100 from the Armour Packing company by fraudulent representation", the company's local agent, J. P. McGuirc, making the complaint. A. L. Lee, who proves to be the butchers wife, is solvent, and Lee is charged with juggling with her uame to the sorrow of the packing company. The case will be- heard next Monday. Lee fur nished the bond of S500 required for his appearance. Pardoned by Gov. Stone. Gov. Stone yesterday pardoned Leroy Baker and 'Eugene Gillet, who wereconvicted at the June term, 1802, of the circuit court 'of Nodaway county, and sentenced to two years each for grand larceny. Both of these recipients of executive clemency are young men who have not yet attained their majority. They both belong to the best families of Nodaway county, and the petition asking that they be pardoned was signed by all the county officials and many of., the leading "citi zens. It seems, from the evidence submitted to the governor, that they fell into bad company, and while drunk stole some property, which they restored to its owner as soon as they were sober. j 5" WORTH LAGtmtEAAJ BOX."

GitAXAUA Nk'Ailuji'a, May 'Jo. Additional details of the decisive battle of Barrsnee Pass near Masaya show that it wi's even more disastrous than was first rejMirted. Keliable data show that the governments losses at the first attack were 1"5 killed and 2(57 wounded. Carrying away the wounded with them, Sacazas troops were forced to leave the field. None of the revolutionists were injured. Two hours later the demoralized government forces came again to the attack. Scores of men fell on the battle field. The assaulting col umns were forced to retreat and Gen eral Barrancas of the revolutionary armv was left in complete itossession of th2 field Although the revolu- tii nists 'st oiilv 12 killed and eight wi.tnded nearly all ot whom were office s. Two of the government's generals were killed. Notwithstand ing the victory by the revolutionists, the situation is practically unchanged. They have not sufficient arms to take advantage of the demoralization they have eaused. MISSOURI GLANCES. People and Events as Viewed Through Our Sanctum Field Glass.

Well Known Young Lady Of This City Writes a Breezy Letter. Chicago. May 18 'fl Editor Bazoo With a party of Kentucky friends I arrived here hist week ami I take the firs opportunity to comply with my promise to write. Time is money here, and we are trying to see all these combined wonders, in the sjiace of two weeks, that really requires months, and then not see all that is to be seeu. It is very chilly ami disagreeable and every one you meet is in furs and heavy wraps, and it will be a month before things are in a perfect condition for sight seeing. The great exposition far excels anything my imagination could possi bly conceive. Jackson park is a city of white palaces open from 7 o'clock in the morning until 10 o'clock at night. Last evening as I stood gazing about me I imagined I was in the storied Alhambra with its soft lights, pendant pillars, luxuriance of .flowers, rich exotics, and longed for the gift of a facile pen to describe to the friends at home the grandeur of these gigantic buildings, filled with rare and costly curios, and people from all parts of the glolie. The transportation facilities lietween the city and fair grounds aie of the best, 100,000 people per'hour can be carried to and from the grounds with ease and safety and when inside of Jackson park an electric elevatcu railroad with electric launclies.coiivcys the visitor to all parts of the ground? for 2o cents. Then the roller and sedan chairs at iiO cents per hour is a great comfort to tired feet and weary limbs. Two large pumping plants furnish the thirsty (free of charge) with (54,- 000,000 gallons of water per dav. Anil there arc hundreds of neat and com fortable waiting rooms (free of charge) where you can sit and rest as long as you desire. koi:i:icn nxinr.iTri. The foreign exhibit? are magnificent, Germany and France take the lead, i? mv opinion. The former stands along the lake shore and is an architcctual poem The Gormania group in bronze on a pedeMal one hundred feet high, is a grand monument, ami tnc ciumes in the clock tones here I can never for get. Their deep, mellow tones ming ling with the dash ot the Mirt will hold you spellbound. The crown jewels, guarded day and night by the Emtieror's guardsmen, and the suite of three rooms, furnished after rooms in the palace of King Liuhvig, the German Lmperor, am the King of Saxony, all of the iiomj of rovaltv and the wealth of a king' purse is expended. From this magnificent German exhibit, we could hardly tear our-elves away. It is wortli the time and money to see it alone. Fiance has a fine building and heie the ladies mostly gather, to behold the display of woman s gowns and millinery, direct from Paris, and they are beauties, too. Some articles valued at thou-amls of dollars, and I can't tell you how f did long to try some of them on. The art palace is "00 feet long. Here is the grandest display of art ever eeu at one time, and right here you could spend a month. AMOXlI THE TUIIKS. In the Turkish village the turhatied Turk attracts much attention. Here I saw pieces of handwork hice and silk with hundreds of thousands of dollars, also the silver bedsteads at 8450,001). Fine horses, from the Sultan's ?talile and hundreds of Bed ouious with their camels. The Midway Plaisance of which so much has been said and written, is a street HOO feet wide and a mile long, our guide tells us. lo me it looKeu hkc li-Miaiu, turned IK;e, crowded with sideshows, customs of all nations illustrated. People from all parts of the worldare here exhibiting the mauufacturies ami products of their native land. There are a great many foreign buildings and exhibits I would gladly tell you ot but time forbids. California has a fine display. Her orange pyramid fifty feet high, and Powers sculpture. "The lat of his race" is very fiue.- Kentucky has a handsome structure which does credit to the blue grass country. The building is used for a club house and here I met some of my friends, whose acquaintance I made at the Kentucky capital last winter. Montana has a lovely building in which is seen the celebrated Ada Re han silver statue representing Justice. It stands on a gold base costing SoOO, 000. Last, though not least, comes the woman's building, planned by Miss Hayden of Massachusetts. We tarried long here, viewing the beautiful specimens of woman's handi work, and while gazing upon all these marvelous thing, meeting so many intellectual cultured ladies, I could ' but think, at no distant day, the ; "Lord of creation," will acknowledge umi nz me iiiuti ctjuui, unit p"ni iui something, beside cooking a good din ner and minding the baby. Millionaire J. W. Mackey, wife, son and handsome daughter, are at our hotel on their way to Europe, as well as many foreigners. We have stopped at the best hotel, been royally treated and feel compensated for the money we have spent. To morrow we leave for Kansas C'ity.and in a few days for home. If this letter has benefited any of my friends who are comiug here, and interests those not so fortunate, I shall feel repaid in complying with my promise to write. Giia'cc B. Mathews.

A Column of Conversations With People Here and There. Rev. R. S. Hunter, presiding elder of the Scdalia district of the M. E. Church, South, returned to Clinton this morning. Mr. Hunter entered the Methodist ministry in East Tennessee in 1858, and was cx'Miunding the Gospel to the hardy mountaineers of that region in 1S51, when the Civil war broke out. The young man in fact, nothing more than a lad vacated his pulpit and joined John Moigan's command, where he was known as "the boy chaplain." Mr. Hunter w:is equally handy with pistols and prayers, anil was ever found in the front with the great Kentucky cavalryman. If the World's fair should depend upon patronage received fiom this part of the country it wouldn't last many minutes. Assistant Ticket Agent Mcliin, at the union depot, says that not more than a dozen railroad tickets to the World's fair have been sold at the local office since the opening of the exposition. He also stated that nearly all other towns along the Missouri Pa cific line have bad an experience siili ilar lo that of Scdalia. Of course, with the coming of June and better weather, and when all the conditions are more favorable the passenger busi ness will be large. There is a historic house still stand ing five miles east of Boonville. It is owned and occupied by George W. Adams, a wealth farmer. The traveler passing by will see in the east wall, just under the eaves, two circular spots if they may be so called about the dimensions of the bottom of an ordinary water bucket. They are the patched up hides made by two cannon balls from Federal batteries, which penetrated the wall, within three feet of each other, during the engagement in which General Lyons routed the Con federate troops of Colonel Manna duke, June 17, 1801. Lyons had several guns, which had been brought up on steamboats, and which were planted in a wooded pas turesome 400 yards east of theAdams' house. Aliout the same distance southeast of this dwelling, in a wheat field, is the site where Dr. William Quarles, father of Reed Quarles, formerly of Scdalia, saenficed his life in the "Lost Cnti o." Colonel Thomas Houston, of Hous touia, arrived in Scdalia this morning, accompanying his wife, who continued her journey to cmithton, near winch place she will visit her sister, Mrs, Judge Chilton. Colonel Houston claims to have lieen a pupil of Marshal Ney, in North Carolina, some sixty vcars ago. He has made a close study of the assertion that Ney was not shot, but escased to the United States, after the overthrow of the empire, and settled in the tar heel state, where he taught school un til his death in 1840. Colonel Houston's contributions uon his favorite topic within the past twenty years, have been voluminous, widely read and convincing. He in formed the writer that Rev. J. A. Weston, of Raleigh, N. C, has in press a volume, which is meant to es tablish the identity of Ney as the teacher whose school the colonel attended- Mr. Weston not only thor oughly investigated the matter in this country, but visited France, where he had access to valuable histonc archives. The book will contain a chapter or two by Colonel Houston. William Hoffman has Iwn appointed as postmaster at Lomrwood. vice James Smiley, resigned. EXPIATED I The Crimeof Young Amos Avery Atoned For To-Day. 1 His Victim a '-Book Agent" But he Died For Murdering Him Just the Same. The StoryOf a Son Who Despite Of a Mother's Tears, Broke Her Heart. Lamak, Mo., May 24. Amos Aver, the 21-year-old murderer of J. I. Miles, expiated his crime on the gallows this morning in this"" city. The place of execution was in the jail yard and was enclosed by a high board fence. About thirty-five peo ple, most of whom were newspaper men from surrounding towns witnessed the hanging. The condemned boy slept not a wink last night and he and his widowed mother of Fort Scott, Kan sas, spent the long hours together in his cell. He was resolute and appar ently prepared to meet his fate and often attempted to console his broken hearted mother, whose grief was noticeably demonstrated in the cell. At 0:.'JO Avery ate a light breakfast' of lteefsteak ami t .ast and a few min utes later his mother luule her son farewell. Left alone the doomed boy paced the cell as if impatiently awaiting s:me welcome event, until Sheriif Carl appeared with the death warrant, to which he 'listened attentively as he 1 i i.:, ircciLl wii"uuu 111:7 i.ii;. 1 At 8:2'5 the march to the gibbet was taken up. On the gallows Avery made a speech declaring his inno cence. He was swung off at !):'5. The lxdy was taken to Fort Scott by his mother for interment. 85TOKY OK THE CM.ME. The history of the life and crime of Amos Avery is an interesting one. Amos Every was lioru 111 Brown coun ty, II s., 21 years ago. His mother left her husband three years later, be cause of domestic troubles and moved to Ft. Scott, Kans., taking her son with her. Five years ago she moved to Columbus, Kans., and while there, Amos, at the age of 17, was co:iv-cd of grand larceny and sent to he Kan sas penitentiary tor two years, A vcar later his motuer returned to Fort Scott and after his release from prison ha nix returned there, where he lived for little over a year before the commission of the crime which he to-day expiated with his life. The crime was one of premeditation am! ferocity and was accompanied by 110 single incident which would justify executive clemency or commutation ot Ins sentence, unless it was the vig ous claims of his mother and friends that he was mentally irresponsible for his act. On September 15, 1800, the victim of his crime, J. I. Milcs.a book agent of Scdalia, Mo., whose territory wa. in Barton, Vernon and Bates counties left Butler, Mo., in a one horse buck- lioanl for Lamar, following the state lire south on the Kansas side. At noon of the next day he passed through rort scott, and 111 the afternoon In ovcrtook Avery, who had left home that morning saying he was going to Weir City, Mo., to get work in the mines, on the country highway near Arcadie, Crawford county. Miles asked him to ride and they were soon to all appearances agreeable compan ions. Avery had no money and at Arcadia, Miles bought his supper. They continued their jour ney going east into Barton county Mo. At nightfall they prepared a bed of blankets beside the road and retired. Miles was soon asleep but Avery, evidently watching for an oj portunity for the terrible deed, was not. lie took from the pocket of his companion a 32 calibre revolver and shot him through the head. Then stripping the body of its clothing he replaced them with, his own shabby garments and fled. Miles' corpse was found by a farmer on the. day follow iug and the murder was for days shrouded in deep mys tery. The father of the murdered man employed detectives and Barton coun ty offered a reward for the arrest and conviction of the murderer. Five days after the crime was com mitted, Avery was arrested by Detect ive Jones of Fort Scott, while working in the mines at Webb City, Mo. At the time ot the arrest he was wearing the clothes robbed from the body of the victim. His defense at the trial was. based on mental incapacity, but was of no avail. The evidence snowed he had sold the horse and a backboard and squandered the money. He was convicted and sentenced to hang March 15, 181)3, but was re prieved to April 15th and then to May 10th, pending an investigation into his sanity, hy Governor Stone, who finally decided not to interfere further than to reprieve him the third time until May 24th. Avery has had fits regularly since being coiifined"aud was once released irom criminal charge at Fort Scott on the ground that his mind was affected. EXPLODING FRUIT JARS. Lively Time Among the Hor ticultural Exhibits At the Fair. Chicago, May 22. Festival Hall was formerly dedicated to-day by the Chicago orchestra and a special Wag ner programme was presented consist ing of selections from "Tanna haeuser," Walkure," Gotterdaeru nierung" and Tristan" and Isolde." The formal choral opening of the lieautiful hall take place Wednesday, at which time the Chicago Apollo club will give Mendelssohn's "Elijah." Exhibitors in horticultural building are having a hard time of it just now in the fruit and viticulture sections. The weather which has set in is too much for them. It is no uncommon thing to hrar a fusillade as of rifles or the dropping shot of heavy artillery, as the large jars ot fruit explode or the corks are blown out of too effer vescent wine. Saturday, while hun dreds of people thronged the Colorado fruit exhibit, a tremendous report was heard and a large glass stopper weighing fully five pounds sail ed skyward, hit an irn joist in the roof and descended among the crowd scattering it in all direct-ons. Alwut the same time the harp reports of exploding corks were heard from the viticulture section and lozens of bottles were relieved of their contents. All the exhibitors tolay were busily engaged in loosening their fruit-jar stoppers for fear of accidents. Idaho has already been stimulated by the eflervescent condition of the canned fruits to negotiate for a cold itoragc system, and the other fruit exhibitors will have to do the same.
