This is why a Gentleman's Furnishings, Ties, Collars, Cuffs, Shirts and the et ceteras generally, are worthy of some thought and attention. Spring and Summer necessitates an entire renewal in these lines. We invite an inspection of our large stock. DEWEJST THE HATTER AND FURNISHER.

FBI6HTFUI, FALL OF AN jEBONiCT RUM Jeeephlne ' Buaboo JDrop* 80O Feet •! Odellt IIL, ud Eiempea Death. The following dispatch from (Well, 111,, U referred to the dtlllgeut consideration of the Logantport young gentlemen who so fondly and raahly risk their lives In the air: Miss Josephine Baraboo, an aeronaut, had a most miraculous esoape from a horrible death today, She fell a distance of nearly 800 'eet before her parachute opened and prevented her being o>ihei to instant destruction. She had made a successful ascension before an Immense crowd. The balloon was Inflated with hot air. It It not known whether it* construction was faulty or whether the suddea contact with a cold current of air caused the accident, but at an estimated height of 800 feet the great airship suddenly split, the hot air rutked out In a cloud and the woman thot down ward. The spectators who were cheering her daring feats on the trapeze bar wore horrified to •ee her Speeding toward earth, the parachute by which the had intended to descend refusing to open. The rope* seem to have become entangled when the baloon burst and ttere geemod to be no means of avertlrg a catastrophe. Women fainted and men averted their faces as the slender body sped toward earth with the rapidity of wind. When about seventy-five feet from the ground the ropes binding the parachute were loosened by the flight through the air and the canvas opened with a snap and force that threatened to break It. Miss Baraboo nearly lost her grip on the trapeze bar when the machine opened, but she wa* still con soious and managed to hold oh. The force of her fall was considerably broken, but she was seriously hurt. Physicians say tonight that she will recover, although she la badly bruised and her nervous system has sustained a very aevere shock' World'* Columbian Exposition Will be of valu* o the world by 1U lustrating the Improvements in the mechanical arts and eminent physicians will tell you that the progress in medicinal agents, has been of equal Importance, and ts a strengenlng lax- tlve that Syrup of Figs la far In ad vance of all others.

A TenaesMea* "Fllmmed " •Is there a kicking machine In townP" asked a well dressed, genteel looking Southerner of a policeman at the Wabash station last evening, jpon being answered that be could be accommodated with most any kind of a machine In Loganeport the stranger unburdened himself to the policeman and told a sorrowful tale ot woe. laid he: "My name It Matterton, Colonel Masterson of Tennessee, I met a very pleasant gentleman up here thia afternoon and we got to alking together like old friendt. In he course of the conversation he said he knew my town, and went on to inquire about all the old folks at home, le seemed to know them all and wat 0 pleasant In all hit remark* about hem, that I kind o 1 warmed up to him. Incidentally he intimated that he needed a little money to get him out of town—rather guested that would be enough. He had no oath, but he did have 1 check for f 1,651 which he bowed to me, but which he said he sould not oath here. At the check was on my old bank at home, I bought it wat all right. I gave him he $14 that lie needed and we shook hands and he said he hoped to meet me again. I hope that I may meet him again. If I do he will be hurt, hat's all. He deceived me. Basely deceived me. I took his $1,650 iheok, given in return for my $14; and iresented It at a bank here for inapeo- lon. I was told that the oheok was .ot worth the paper that It was writ- en on. That ii the reason that I am nqulrlng fora kicking machine. I want to be kicked—kicked by maohln. ry. The old method is not good nough for me. My name it Master, on—Col. Mastorson, of Tennessee, by sir, and I know when I ought to e kicked." Col. Masterton, of Tennessee, by ad »lr, departed at 10:80 feeling eeply the grievance that he had in- urred here.

The recent floods In Pennsylvania cost the Pennsylvania Railroad. Com. pany 8150,000 at a rough estimate. Other ' lines suffered nearly, If not, quite as much. Wabash railroad men passing through the city yesterday, report the instant killing of a boy at Lafayette Tuesday. He was riding on a Wabash switch engine, and attempting to alight he was thrown under the wheels. He was mangled,almost beyond recognition. The standard gauge of all tracks on the Pennsylvania system, west of Pltttburg, Is four feet, eight and one. half inches, but east of Pltttburg the freight tracks are four feet nine inches, and the passenger tracks four feet, eight and one-half Inohet. The I freight tracks are now to be made the tame width at the passenger tracks, except where the curvature it heavy, where they will be left four feet nine Inohet. Between 300 and 400 Santa Fe shop employes were laid Off Tuesday evening at Topeka under an order issued by General Manager Fry. An official said: "The reaton for this cutting down in the force is very simple to understand. On account of poor business the earnings have not been what the receivers anticipated, and It it necessary to keep the expenses of the road within the receipts." I Charles .B. Pindar, for many years ji passenger conductor on the T. H, & L., but for the past year depot master at the Terre Haute Union Station, has resigned the latter position and will go to Hot Springs in quest of health. For some years past he has been a sufferer from rheumatism, which for several months past effected him to such an extent that he could not at' tend to his duties. It is said to be understood, that in case of his recovery he will again enter the service of the Vandalla company as passenger conductor. The striking miners have made an effort to induce the railway brotherhoods to join In the effort to prevent the shipment of coal during the strike. When, the grand executive board of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen was In session at Terre Haute, a few days ago, a committee of miners called on It and made an argument In behalf of the plan. The members of the board informed the miners that there was nothing in the laws of the brotherhood that would permit them to order the men to refuse to handle coal shipments. It was sug- getted that if the brotherhood lodges at Evansvllle, where the Kentucky coal it received on its way to Chicago, could see thefr way clear to making a grievance out of the matter it might be possible to exert the brotherhood Influence in aid of the miners. It is in accordance with that suggestion, perhaps that a mass meeting of miners will be held at Starr City tomorrow to make arrangements to send delegates to Evansville to confer with the brotherhood lodges there. Nearly every brotherhood has a law absolutely prohibiting a "sympathy strike," even in sympathy with another railway labor organization. , Rip Vu Wlnklo. That perrennial favorite ' 'Rip Van Winkle" was put on the stage at Dolan's last ntght by Mr. and Mrs. Robert Wayne and company in excellent style and was enthusiastically received by the audience. In the title role Mr. Wayne exceeded his former efforts, making a most excellent "Rip," Mrs. Wayne as Gretohen did the part admirably and the supporting company rendered well their respective parts. Tonight's bill will be ' -La Belle Marie'* with Mrs. Wayne in the title role. Tomorrow night will be the great society bill "Lady of Lyons." Seats now on sale at Patterton's.

Idaville Observer: A rumor was started last Friday ihit the child of Wlllard Pritohett which died In Lo gansport and was burled in Leazenbee cemetery, was thought to have had [ small pox. A telegraph dispatch here from the health authorities at Logansport asking that an officer be sent out to prevent a public funeral, laying that they had not intended the child should be taken from £the olty. But when in. quired of they said it was supposed lo have died of meaglei, but the attend. ing physician pronounced It a case of "bold hives." Logantport strenously denies that there It any small pox In her limits, but as the suspicion seems to have been raised by one of her physicians the case may be doubtful; though our own opinion Is there it no cause for alarm. will Wccner Arreiied. Lait evening upon a warrant iisued from the city court upon an affidavit filed by Mrt.

MoGraw, the bar tender, wat lying at the point of death at his home on the West Side, and that his chances for recovery were considered small Indeed. Yesterday in the circuit court the suit of Mary Miller, vs the estate of John Miller was called. The case was given to the jury last evening and a sealed verdict will be returned this morning. Mrs. Miller, the widow of the deceased, sought to collect a note' of t',204 held by her sgainit tote estate and signed by the decease*.. Mrs. Thomas, the only other hair. contested the suit on the -ground that. the signature was a forgery.

As to game, hu kills all kinds of umall gromnA fame, younp deer, and antelope. specialty, however, is feeding dead carcasses of large animals, eithe* wild or tame. This being the aa***. when on our buffalo hunt in Montana), in 1886, we got many fine coyotc& for- our collection by putting around the* buffalo carcasses numerous bits of lean> meat duly charged with strychnin*. The ranchmen and cowboys of th* west have slaughtered tens of thon*- ands of coyotes in this way, to prote*% their young calves and sheep, and also to make money from pelts and) bounties. The barking habit of the coyote i*» . very dog-like, and his old nanw «C barking wolf is very approprtettu When collecting mammals in ming, it wat a very common ut to hear the coyotes around onzr camp set up a great barking in chonur at tho Brat «ijrn of day-break, when the roosters begin to crow the farm. It ia a wild and vated kind of a bark, ending in a fsJ~ setto howl, and resembles the cry ot the jackal of India more nearly tha» any other sound I ever heard. But Sir Coyote is cut*. He know* exactly the distance that constitute* fair rifle-range, and he know* juat as> well whether the stranger ii armed s» does the stranger him»clf. When hunt* ing in the Shoihone mountain* in 1881V I wanted to kill 'a coyote for a special. lurpose, but never once succeeded im getting a fair shot, even at 300 yardsu ?or ten days we banged away industriously at every one we saw, bufc never touched a hair. Finally, at Cor- >ett's ranch, I left the expedition, anck started north by stage, leaving behindl me rifle, revolver, knife, and even scissors. Just two hour* after I had said good-bye to my Bhootinf-iroMv and taken the buckboard "stag*," w» saw a coyote ahead of as, close to tbe> trail Seeing us coming, he selected at soft spot, sat down withJ,n thirty yard* of the trail, and waited for us. We drove up, stopped as we got' opposite him, and still he did not ruiL. That villain sat there coolly and looked us over without moving a muscle, bufc with a leer that plainly said, "Now. • don't you wish you had yourold gun?'* 1 When we got through making face* at> him, and wishing fora gun, a revolver,, or even a common stone to fire at him*; we drove on; and then he got up and< went on hunting for jack-rabbits. To> this day I have been puzeliug over ther question, "How did that gray nucall find out so quickly that bath thai driver and I were totally unarmed?"'
