CHARLES, Mo., May 1C—Tho Central Missouri may now bo said to be fairly under way at this point. Four or five car loads of horses and mules arrived hero on the 14th for use on the line. Two hundred teams more are now heading for the county under different contractors. One outfit arrived at Hamburg on Saturday and has gone to work at or above that town; another gang was started in at Green's bottom yesterday. The men and tearao here only await the arrival of wagons and harness to begin work at once outside our city limits. Tfco contract is with J. Johnson for tho tho first six miles through and above tho city. There is a good demand for men and teams now, as it seems the work is to be pushed vigorously.

Did you find out where tho strength of the AltonsJ was during the Union gameP The question naturally arises: Who killed the base ball patronage F A picked nine wearing the Alton's suits does the town no credit. None are so blind as they who will not see. Talking "taffy" incessantly to players and patrons is not a winning policy. It is ho who deals liberally with the people that succeeds; the moneys worth must bo guaranteed or loss of patronage surely ensues. Pointer! Warner continues his good work for the Scranton club, and the coal city daily press smgoth his praises loudly. Fahey and McSweeney won for the Prickly Ash, Sunday, by timelv batting. Weigraffe, of lost year's Hub club, seems to please St. Joe bettor than he did Memphis. Chicago is after Hutchison, an old Yale College pitcher. The Louisville papers want the Eclipse management to purchase Hudson, the pitcher. Newark, N. J., wants the Mets frani chise in the Association. It is said that Radbourn never pitches in the same style two days in.succession, bonce his SUCCORS. A singular thing occurred in the sixth inning of the 18 inning Detroit-Pittsburg game last Tuesday, Miller was at bat and struck a ball foul into the air. A sparrow was at that instant skimming over the field, and the ball struck the bird squarely, bringing it to the earth dead. All the spectators said it was a hoo-doo and sure enough Detroit had all she could 'jo. Tho loft hand pitchers are not the terrors they wore last year. The new rules place them nearly on the same footing with the right hand twirlers. Baldwin, Cushmau, Morris, Smith, Toole, Ramsey and others are being batted rather hard. Kilroy and Casey alone seem to hold their own. HARRIED. HYIUE—UOfKINS.— In thin olty, May IBtli, at tho rosldonoo of the bride's parontii, by Key. I.. A. Abbett, D.D., Mr. Goo. M.
