And at Sight Were Throwing Their Kajg Into and Piercing the Darkness. There was a great commotion among the city's light makers yesterday. It was feared that a few persons held a monopoly on light making and that their refusal to assist In the work of producing it might leave the city in darkness. Bat these fears proved groundless. The wheels of the light making machinery turned at their accustomed speed. The electrical current followed the wires as smoothly as greased lightning. The car- bous in the suspended lamps burned gleefully and seemed delighted with the fiery touch of a current made by green bands. The rays of light that emerged from the points of contact shone forth in unusual effulgence. Everything seemed to say: "Keeps your lamps trimmed and a burning for the bridegroom is at hand." It was learned that the bridegroom is to be Mr. Publicity. He is to be wedded to a lady named Economy. The union Is thought to be a very happy one. They are both needed in the electric light department. Dr. Hattery, who remained at the works all day yesterday and until midnight last night assured the Pharos this morning that everything will be running smoothly in a few days at the farthest and that when all the changes now contemplated are made there will be no trouble whatever. An early investigation is to be made into the condition of the plant, and when this is completed It will be made public. An investigation or the financial end of the department will also be made at once. SHE LEASES HOME. Disappearance of Miss Lizzie Bennett, of KoVorao, A Daughter of City Marvel Bennett, of That City, and is Known Here. Well Miss Lizzie Bennett, aged 18, a daughter of City Marshal Bennett, of Kokomo, and a member ot thp senior class of the Kokomo high school, has left home uuder circumstances as yet unexplained and which has caused her parents and friends great alarm. Miss Bennett is & nelce of George Bennett, of this city, and has a large t o'rcle of friends here. Concerning her * K • , »u TT i ~ „ r>i D ^t/>h disappearance the Kokomo Dispatch says: 'One of the most probable theories given as to the departure of the girl is that she desires t.o go on the stage. It it 1 known to tlmately acquainted with she has long possessed an ardent desire to go before the i'ootlights. This belief is strengthened by the fact that her cousin, Clarence Bennett, of Logansport, and formerly of this place, is an actor of high reputa LITTLE CHILD KILLE While Playing on the Railroad Track at Barker, Ind. Other B«iir*ad Sews of Interest te Employe* Gathered From Eyery Source. "Little Oarrie Bugby, the two-and- a-half-year-old daugnttr of » resident of Burkett, Ind., strayed from her mother's presence Wednesday at noon and was run over and killed by a Nickle Plate train. 'The child had waodered down to cbe railway and was sitting in the middle of the crossing, playing with peboles. There is a heavy grade at that point and the train was coming down it at the rate of twenty-five miles an hour. The engineer saw the child and made an effort to stop tne train, but failed. The wheels passed over the-little one, severing both legs from the body and instantly killing her. Tne mother witnessed the terrible affair and was weeping over the mangled little form when the trainmen went back to offer what little assistance they could. Samuel Hooper was the engineer. He was greatly affected by the accident, for wnich no blame can attach to him, as he did all that was in his power to stop the train and avert the accident. RAILROAD NEWS. From the tower of the Union station at Columbus, Oalo, floats the largest American flag in Ohio. The executive committee of the Traveling Passenger association has arranged to hold the annual meeting at Lakewood, Chautauqua, September 12 to 16. The Pennsylvania company has transferred its heaviest locomotives to the Cleveland&Plttsbargdlvl8ion, freight traffic over that division being the heaviest In the history of the road. It is stated that the Wabasn is lay- Ing its new elghty-pound-to-the-yard steel rails at tbe rate of ten mile a day on different parts of the system, preparatory to the introduction of IDS faster train service. The Class 1 freight engines on the Panhandle now haul fifty-one loaded cars between Logansport and Chicago, and it is believed that the new Class H snglne will haul seventy-five to eighty loaded cars between these points. Tbe fast mail train on the Pennsylvania road, wsst bound, made up of eight heavy cars, was on Tuesday hauled from flarrisburg to Altoona. 132 miles in 140 minutes. It is claimed tbat it Is a record which has never been equaled with as heavy a train. The citizens of Willtamsport, Ind., are protesting because the Wabash company has removed Miss Ella Kent, who has been agent of the company at that point for twenty- two years, and appointed Patrick Folleo', a night operator at the Lo- agent. For the biennial meeting of the General Federation of Women's clubs, to be held in Denver, Colo., J'ucs 21st to 29th, the committee in charge fca* selected the Big Four, JUC o those in- Chicago and Alton and Union Pacine her that, railways as the office route from Indiana, aid a special train will leave from Indianapolis June 18th. The sleeping car companies are somewhat uneasy over a bill intro- ducecL-ta congress prohibiting, under a penalty of SlOO, sleeping car com- tion and It is supposed that she has been in communication with him in reference to entering the profession, or is at least trying to get to him at New York City, where he is at present, to attain the height of her ambition. Her journey may be by the way of Chicago where she has relatives. "Another supposition as to the cause of her leaving home is tbat she is concerned in a love affair, but this is scarcely given credence. She has been receiving attentions from two young men, one living at Indlan- apulls and the other at Logansport, but neither were objected to by her parents. It is believed that Miss Bennett will shortly be heard from and that her departure will be satisfactorily explained." Plenty of Applications. Lieut. Buss, of the United States recruiting station in this city, reports that he is having plenty or ao- plications, but up to noon today no enlistments had been made. The lieutenant says the lack of enlistments 18 due to a misapprehension that the soldiers of the regular army do not fare so well as the volunteers. He says that any young man may better trust himself to the command of old and experienced officers than to be under the control of new and untried commanders. Boston Lights Ready. The Boston Lights, & base ball team made ap exclusively of Logansport boys, has been reorganized and is now ready to play any team in the city or surrounding towns. panies from letting down or making up the upper bed or berth when the lower one in the same section is occupied, unless the upper berth has been sold and a passenger is in readiness to occupy it.
