The secretary of war ;bas made an aeiilgnment of the ladlfina regiments and all of them will leave Gamp Mount within the next few days Two regiments and a, battery will be sent to Chickamaugii, one regiment and a battery will be sent to Washington and .tbe remaining regiment win be assigned to protect tbe coast. It is expected that, this First and Second regiments will be sent to Chlckamauga and the Third regiment to Washington. This will leave the assignment ol the Fourth regiment, to which tbe Cass county boys are connected, unusslgned. The regiment will likely be aenii to the seaboard. The regiments going to Oalckatnaugh are likely to see active |service In Cuba, as they will con- jstltute apart ol'the invading a: - my. | Before leaving Gamp Mount ^ach 'mac will be furnished with two shirts, several pairs of socks, cotton underwear and flannel underwear, a blouse, overcoat and other details necessary. QThls will be I'urnlshed by the government and this property must be brought to Indianapolis from the army depots. It will take several days to get this stufl there and it is not thought likely any troops will be moved till It has arrived and has been issued. The formality of mustering in troops is as follows: The regiment will be ordered up In front of brigade headquarters and the mustering officer will then call for a company at a time. With the muster roll In his hand, containing a description of each man, he will call the men one at a time, check the description .-and satisfy himself that there are no "repeaters" or duplicates. The oath will tlien.be administered to tbe company, every man having been accounted for by his presence, and the company will give place to tbe next, though still maintaining its line. Ttte oath is to obey the constitution of the United States, defend the country against all enemies and obey the superior officers according to the rules of war, Tbe Third regiment* will be the first one mustered In. It has Its full complement of officers and man. It will be mustered in today. It is expected that tbe Second regiment and the Indianapolis-battery will be mustered in today. Up to last night 3,820 men bad >een examined and accepted. This eft 534 men to fill tan state'u quota ind there are nearly 1,000 men ready 10 fill it. There is a serious need of money imong the troopn in camp and there B a general demand among tbe line }£ficers and the privates to know when they are to be paid. Most of ine men have been In camp nearly two weeks and so far they hive bad QO authorltive information as to when they can expect their money. Nearly every private who want Into camp with only |8 or 110, now finds that his pocltetbool; is empty, and when It is to be replenlibed is a lead- ng question with him. Some ara in jreat need, and cannot even buy postage stamps. The pay rolls have not eached tbe adjutant general's office, and there is no way of pa.ytng the men until these rolls are turned In. There is plenty of money with which o pay the men, but tbe difficulty eems to be at the camp.

It was first libought that Mrs. Grusenmeyer would recover in a short time, and after being taken home In a buggy, did not cull a physician. Home remedies were used, bat could not counteract the injury done by the overheated blood. During the night her condition became much worse and the alarmed family gent for I)»r.

The Wabash people expect tint their new air line between Buffalo and Windsor will be open for buoi- aes? May 21. District Passenger Agent Thompson, of the Wabash, is distributing a little book which will! be greatly prized by those interested In bane ball. It is a well gotten up schedule of the Inter-State league games for the season of 1898 Charles F. Beam went to St. Louis. yesterday as a representative of dl viiiion No. 26, Brotherhood of Railroad Engineers at tbe third biennial convention. He was accompanied, by Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Williams and B. B. Pittmaj. Most of tbe railways reported! greater earnings for the month o!!. April, 1898, than for the same period of dBy of the five preceding years, Tbe Vanderbilt lines never did better in April and the Wabash reports an increase over last year of $231,789. The .passenger department of the Panhandle reports tftat rapid progress is bein;j made on the new day coaches the company is building at its shops in Gnlumbus, O. A.11 t'ne appointments are to be of the highest standard, wide vestibuled and complete in every feature. There are three important lodge events at Indianapolis this month for which the railways running Into that city will make special low rates.They are the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of Baper commandery, Knights of Templar, May 14; grand lodge of Odd Fellows ancl Rebekah assembly of the state of Indiana, May H5 to 19, and the grand lodge of the Masons, May 25. Among the new problems which are constantly confronting the railroads there is none at the present time more serious than the question of how to meet the competition of the electric street- railways. Tbls question Is especially prominent In tbe east, wbertj the passenger statistics of nearly every road show a growing decrease in the number of passengers carried. The annual re- parts ot the Lake Shore and Michigan Central roads issued last week and the recently published report of tbe Massachusetts railway comoils- siioners confirm the gravity of the situation. In the New England slates, where tbe cities are nearer together and electric car lines more numerous, the problem Is even more serious'than In the territory of the Central Passenger association. The rate to be made by the railroads for the transportation of troops .during the war with Spain will ba 1 cent per mile. The roads had decided that it would be double that, but the government has formed a different opinion and tbe chances seem to be that tbe opinion of tbe government will prevail. The roads have received from Washington information to tha' effect that the government officials did not think that ID the present war they should be called upon to pay more for the transportation of troops than during the civil war and It would not, therefore, pay over 1 cent per mile, whlcb wa.s the < rate made for such traffic between 1861-5. The roads were given to understand Ijbat the governisant was desirous (ihey should make the rate of their own free will, but- that in any event lit would not pay over 1 oent- Tbe matter will be- discussed at a joint meeting of the eastern nnd western. lines, whlcb is to be held today. There Is no doubt but what tbe rate will be made. Base Ball. The Logacsport team is entirely boo strong for tbe Shamrocks of Muncle. Twice they have been defeated. Yesterday the score stood 12 to 10 in favor or the home team. The game ended in the seventh in- iiing.

Smoke the It is said that Morin, the famous 'ranch, sprinter, was offered 10,000 rancs to ride in America this season, ut he patriotically replied chat this as his last; season of riding before bis ervicu in the army, and be \vould not eave France for 50,000 francs. Tbe meeting between Frank Starbnck ancl Edouard Taylore, tbe Frenchman, is an unusually interesting eveut w the American cycle race lovers.- These two tneu are to meet at Philadelphia May 28 in a 20 mile paced match race Tbe last time tbe two met was in tbe same city on an indoor track, and ic was there that Taylore met witb so fearful an accident that be has not been able to do much riding since.

Eden is -wJll- icjf to try conclusions vpicn tbe Detroit boy and the result may be a pretty contest between tbe two. A race between Fred Titns and Eddie McDuffie is on tue tapis. .McDuffie is a wonderful 10 to 15 mile rider, and it is thought that Titns is pretty nearly as good. If tbey aieec soon, it will be a battle of giaats if Titus has eliminated the "yellow streak" wbicb was'so manifest last year. Tbe manager of Titns for this season claims that this has been done, so tbe result will be looked, forward to with great interest. Every machine that Jimmy Micbael rides is specially designed and con- snrncited from plans aiyangeiJ by Dave Shafer.

It is riddea by bnndreds ol thousands who have no Mechanical knowledge, and yet accidents are comparatively rare. It seems to be little short of -wonderful that a wheel of about 25 pounds should ba able to carry from six to eight times ite weigfit ovex all sorts of roads at a speed running op as high as 20 miles an hoar, day in and day ont, and have damages come, except in rare instances, :l'rom defective 'orgings only. It is more than likely, nowever, that most of tie protection is given by tbe pneumatic Cure, which prevents the wheel from ever getting a really hard blow, the sir cnihion taking up most of uhe force of impact. A well known manufacturer i» quoted a* tayiug that tbe lii'e of a bicycle is at most an uncertain qua::itity, and that the treatment it receives at the hands of cbft rider i.s tbe most important factor. considers it quite passible for a mash ine to be strong enough to carry a •iiier of 180 pounds and yet give way under a rider of 150 pounds. It all de- >«nds, he says, upon tbe relative strain t upon it by tbe rider. The really ;ood bicycles, and thiSKi are many, -are safe and may be ridden thousands of miks without any signs of giving way. York Post.
