The Bodr of John Hager BeiU Peacefully 111 the Tomb Aivali- luc the Final Trump.—No Ghonld Abroad, It is distressing enough that a rumor should be in circulation that ghouls were preying upon the bodies in our cemeteries. It is doubly distressing that publication should be made of these rumors untllQeomothlng defflnite would be known in the matter. Both evening papers last evening contained senpational stories to the elTect that the body of John Hager, who was burled a week ago yesterday In Mt. St. Vincent had been seized by ghouls and that his grave waa empty. It would have been a very easy matter for theao newspapers to have ascertained whether or not they were purveying facts when they gave space in their columns to this sensational and most disagreeable report, and by this investigation could have spared the harrowed feeling of the friends of the deceased. As a matter of fact it was not until tho veracious (?) evening papers had ,tatod that the suspicious appearance of tho mound over John Hagor's remains bad led to an investigation of the condition of things by the sexton, which investigation led to the discovery that tho coffin was empty—not until this reckless publication waa made did sexton Redmond know any. thing of the matter, nor was it, -until these heedless prints gave unnecessary and painful alarm to the friends of the deceased, that the grave was opened. After six o'clock last even- Ing Mrs. Hager the widow, and the mother of the deceased, Mr. Matt Sneeberg-er and other relative*, called upon sexton Redmond and an examination of the grave was made. It was found that the mound had settled, naturally owing to the heavy rains of tho past week, but Mr. Redmond assured the party that the grave was undisturbed, that he was positive the mound he had built bad not been tarn, pered with. To make sure doubly sure however, he dug down and disclosed to the satisfaction of all that neither the coffin nor the body bad been touched since they were deposited within the tomb.

Chicago Times: When Dr. Amos C Hall's suit for divorce came up in Judge Swing's court yesterday, Mrs Hall was not present. It was e&li that she had feft for New York, and her attorneys stated that she and tho doctor had come to an agreement. Affidavits in support of this statement were presented. A letter from Mrs. Hall to her mother wae read, in which she said that she and her husband had made up and he bad given her money to go to New York with the understanding that ho was to go on with the divorce case. When he had worked up his practice he was to re-marry her. If this can be proved the case will be dismissed. Dr. Hall's attorneys say that he Is pre pared to deny all. the assertions made by his wife. Judge Ewing said would not call the case for trial two weeks. This gives Mrs. Hall opportunity to come back from New York and appear in court to reply ti the charge in (he original suit. Sue Ball New*.

The Boad of Directors of the Clti zfns'Natural Gas Co. are 'ready to do allin their power to put in operation in the city of Logansport a citizens' natural gas plant in every sense of the word. It is their desire to furnish cheap gas and plenty of it to subscrib. ers. While the Board and officers will put forth every effort to make this a success, a great deal depends upon the prompt payment of the subscriptions, and with this prompt payment the Citizens' plant is assured. All we ask is the co-operation of sub scrlbers and citizens who are urged to become subscribers. THE CITIZENS NATURAL GAS Co. ••".••'• M. A. JORDAN, Pros. C. W. GIIAYES, Sec'y. Quarantine AcalnpitCbleaco. Tho State Board of Health met today, says the Indianapolis News, to consider a proposition to quarantine Indiana against Chicago on account ol the small pox there. The State board has information that the disease is much more prevalent there than the Chicago newspapers have been willing to admit and some action by Indiana is deemed necessary. The board Is disposed to quarantine against the olty and cites the appropriation of $50,000 at the Governor's disposal to enforce the quarantine. The board will present the case to the Governor, who feels that the affair is of such Importance that|the utmost care should be exercised. Ff Wuvuc All Mixed Up The new City Attorney of Fort Wayne holds that Messrs. Henry Grafle and Charles McCulloch, members of the Board of Trustees of the Water Worke, are ineligible because they are officers and directory of the electric light company which furnishes the city with light. Under this ruling Messrs. Haberkorn and Mossman, Republicans, will qualify and lay claim to the trusteeship. If the opinion of the city attorney is sustained by the courts, it places the water works board under the control of Repubiloans for the first time in the history of the city. How, How, What U Thin? The Greentown correspondent to the Kokorao Dispatch contributes the following rather mysterious and somewhat perplexing Item of news. It is wondered what it all means and who or what is responsible at this end of the line. The itam reads thusly: ' Our newspaper will make its first appearance next Thursday, published and printed at Logansport and edited, well here, at Logansport and on the road. It will bo a hustler. Lot us make it a success until we can do better. Ed Dentil of Ed. MorrUey. MorrBBey died at his residence on Wabash avenue at 10 o'clock yesterday morning after a brief Illness, aged 39 years. Tho deceased was a brother of Supt. of Police Morrlsey. and of Martin Morrlssey. The remains were removed to the home of the latter at 826 Raoo street. The funeral will be held at 9 o'clock tomorrow morning from St, Vincent de Paul church, services conducted by Rev. M. E. Cwnplon. ADDITIONAL LOCAL)*.

P. will practice their foot movements, preparatory to the national contest this fall, at Spencer Park. The prompt payment of natural gas stock subscriptions will insure to this city the most satisfactory gas service to be found in the State. Subscriptions were paid on eighty- five shares of stock at the new gas company's office yesterday. It was an encouraging day's work. Yesterday Alma M. Burket was granted a divorce and the restoration of her maiden name of Martin. Her husband Chas. A. Burket, is in the penitentiary. Sheriff Homburg departed yesterday for the prison north having in his custody Mahlon Roderick who goes to enter upon his four years sen tence to penal confinement for the crime of forgery. Yesterday at the home of the bride in the East End, Mrs. Martha Whit* sell was united in marriage to Henry J. Roach, sr., Rev. T. S. Freemnn, pastor of the Christian church officiating. Benj. Klrkpatrlok, colored, of Col umbus, was tried on charge of casting an illegal vote in the Fourth ward at the recent election, but he proved a residence and was acquitted. Then he waa accused of trying to vote In the Second ward, and on this charge he was bound over. A green worm measuring from a quarter to a half inch in length has made its appearance In the fields of growing clover In Huntington county. They appear in countless numbers, and when a field Is once attacked the destructive work Is continued until every bit of blossom and leaf is consumed. William N. Whitely, whoue reaper and mower works were recently destroyed by fire, baa arranged with other factories at Muncie by which he will put his employes immediately at work at manufacturing machines. Meanwhile the work of reconstructing the destroyed buildings will be pushed. The Reporter objects to the Journal's comments about Dr. Battery. The Journal has always been friendly to Dr. Battery and in this case simply thought a more satisfactory president could be secured. It was simply a business matter and there is no cause for any personal feeling. The Reporter seems anxious to stir up strife. Miss Maggie Shinn called at the Journal office yesterday morning and stated that she had not been injured in tho least as the result of her thrill ing experience the evening before, when, while riding hor bicycle, she collided with an omnibus and passed an exciting moment beneath the hoofs of tho plunging and excited horses. Miss Shinn is congratulated upon hor narrow escape from death or painful injuries. _ That Injunction salt. The evidence in the injunction suit of Chas. S. Knight vs. the City of Logansport was submitted before the court yesterday. The argument in the case will be heard this morning. This is the action for an order restraining the olty from putting in a,n electric light plant of its own. From the fact that Judge McConnell will be gone all next week it is not likely that a decision will bo returned until the following week. A Vote or Thank*. After the Journal reporter left the gas meeting Tuesday evening a vote of thanki was tendered Dr. Hattery for his earnest services in behalf of the new company. This fact wa» thus unintentionally omitted from the re, port of the proceedings in yesterday's paper. Geor«e-«'Klected.» George Goneer was elected clerk of Darlington, Montgomery county, last Monday by 25 majority.

The report conies from trustworthy sources that the germs of diphtheria have boon traced to moldy apples. Scientists are now agreed that diphtheria is a. fungoid disease that may be- acquired from the- moldy vegetable growth not uncommon in damp cellars. Not only may moldy apples communicate this disease, but moldy vegetables of any kind or any article on which is found the -jreetl mold so often found on leather and other articles stored in a damp place. All this goes to illustrate again the danger of slatternly housekeeping, of allowing 1 unusual articles to accumulate in clutter places, and above all the danger that arises from unclean cellars. No cellar should be allowed to become damp. If the dampness cannot be remedied, the house is an unfit habitation. The slight dampness found in cellars, however, is easily remedied by occasional coats of whitewash and brushing it clean from any debris of old vegetables or fruit which would otherwise become moldy and be a very probable cause of disease. The cellar should be ventilated occasionally in winter as weil as in summer. All vegetables, fruit and other articles stored in the cellar are best packed in barrels resting- on beams, so that a current of air may flow under as well as over them, or in boxes or bins ventilated in the same way. If there is any evidence that the cellar is damp, any fruit or vegetables that arc to be brought up stairs for use should be washed thoroughly at onee. It is not an uncommon thing to allow a baby to play with fruit like this, fresh rom long storage in the cellar, and, because of the'possible presence o< mold, this is a dangerous thing to do. as any child is much more liable U> contract diphtheria from any CJUHO than an adult.— X.

Winter ascent of Mont Blanc.rotten rope—three feet distance." —Flieg-encle UlacUer. —Sixty years ago there was a French Huguenot preacher in New York who modeled his sermons exactly after tho pattern laid down in Claude's "Essay on Preaching." Usually he preached in French, but when he resorted to English, the effect was irresistible. Tlo not only built his discourse upon a set plan, but \vas careful to have the fact known and appreciated. To that end, he announced in turn each of its divisions. "Now we have do oration," ho would say, gravely; and then, "now wo have de peroration." His masterpiece of effectiveness v.-as exhibited when, with a befittingly solemn face, he gave out the thrilling announcement: "And DOW, my friends, we come to do pate t-ic." „__ —Secrets arc so seldom kept that it may be with some reason doubted whether the quality of retention bo generally bestowed, and whether a. secret has not some subtile volatility by which it escapes imperceptibly at the smallest vent, or some power of fermentation by which it expands itp self so as to burst tho heart that will not give it away. —Johnson. —"I am told that you are actually- studying Italian."
