Company Raises Rates and City Conn- .cil Takes a Hand The tight between the city and the Richmond Natural Gas company is DOW on in earnest. For several weeks past tbe people have been preparing to tight tbe gas company in tbe raise of price that went Into effect May 1st, and at tbe last meeting of the city council that body decided to take up the fight and co-operate with the people. Friday the company filed a suit to enjoin tbe city from paying any money to test the legality of the plaintiff's action. Tbe complaint alleges that such a course is without toe scope of the city's piwer, and is, t&erefore, illegal. Judge Henry C. Fox, of tbe circuit court, late Saturday afternoon, granted a temporary restraining order and set May 19th for the hearing of the case. CAPTAIN LEE LIN'S, A.

The Logansports Easily Demonstrated Their Superiority Orer the Rochesters. The game of ball at the Driving park yesterday afternoon between the Loganoports and Rochesters was called after the fourth inning on ac- jount ot rain, the score standing 9 to 2 in favor of "our fellows." The home team outplayed the visitors at every point. Logansport has an exceptionally strong team and is deserving of ail of the patronage of the sport. The players are sober, well-behaved young men of good character. The management is to be congratulated for the care thev have exercised in the selection of suoh material. A War Airship. A Peru man named Harry Will- lams claims that he has invented an airship in which he can ride at the rate of-a mile in thirty seconds. He refuses to say much about the invention except that the world will know all about it soon. At present be is corresponding with President McKinley's cabinet concerning the ship and is receiving considerable encouragement. About three years ago, while in Lebanon, Ky., Mr. Williams tried the invention and it worked. Since that time he has been improving the model and now has it almost finished.

Mrs. Hoover was agreeably surprised Friday at her home on Burlington avenue by Lincoln Circle, Ladies of the G. A. E. The aflair was occasioned by her birthday anniversary . The Decoration Day exercises this year will be very impressive. More Interest will probably be manifested than ever before on account of the general feeling of patriotism that has been aroused by the war with Spain. Mrs. Liz2leEisenbrise,of East Mar- jcet street, was assisted Friday evening by the Ladies' Auxiliary to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen in celebrating her birthday anniversary. It was a surprise party and a ;rand social time is reported. Indiana was the first state in the Union to furnish her full quota of men ready to go to any destination. Such is the statement o£ the war department at Washington end published In all the metropolitan papers. Indiana's quota numbered 4, 524 men. Arrangements are being made for the proper observance of Memorial day at Pine. The G. A. B. Post of Fulton will be present and a great number of old veterans will assemble to pay the annual respect to their dead comrades. Services will begin at 2 o'clock. The craze for Duttons of a patriotic nature and for wearing small flags on the lapel of the coat has spread to neckties. The latest design Is a pure white satin tie on which are printed the stars and stripes of 'all sizes and shapes. Some ot them are very tasty, while others are guaranteed to make a patr'ot of the worst Spaniard living. There is a letter at the Michigan City postoffice addressed to the prettiest girl in town and the postoffice force Is In a quandary as to whom to deliver the missive. The single young men of the force each claim the letter should go to his girl, while each carrier claims the girl lives on his route, hence the letter remains undelivered until the girl herself calls to claim the letter.

Beef Cattle Scarce. If readers of daily papers would examine the market reports they would fiad that there is a shortage of beef cattle. The commission men and stock dealers say that good beef cattle are getting fewer each day. Why is this? Have our farmers stopped raising beef steers, or do they think there is no money in this branch of farming. It you will drive over our state you will fiod very few extra beef cattle grazing in the fields, Dairy cattle seem to be plentiful, but beef cattle scarce. Our farmers should take hold and produce more animals. The prices of this class of cattle always remain firm, but those on scrubs are getting lower every day. BICYCLE TAXES. License Fee Imposed by a rennsylvania Town Declared Unconstitutional. The Pennsylvania division of the League of American Wheelmen has just been successful in winning in the Erie courts a case which will doubtless be of value as a precedent in similar suits in other states. The case in question was connected with an ordinance passed by the councils of the city of Erie in July, 5896, reqniriug all owners of bicycles to pay an annual tax of $1, the snm being nominally paid for a registry plate to be attached to the frame of the machine, the claim being made that the tax so imposed was simply a police regulation. Daring the first few months fallowing the passage of the ordinance many wheelmen registered and paid 'the tax imposed, hut the division executive committee decided to contest the right of the city to impose the tax. After two or three arrests had been made of those whom it was desired to have figure in the case, a temporary injunction was asked for and granted, and the case came tip for argument before Judge Morrison. After hearing the argument, a decision against the -wheelmen was given, but an appeal was made and the case transferred to the superior court in Philadelphia. Before the case came up, however, Jndge Morrison indicated a willingness to have another case argued before him. This was done, and the judge in a lengthy opinion reverses his former decision and gives a decision favorable to the league.—New York Post.

Manufacturers are paying particular attention to the production of wheels for juveniles this season, for it is expected that there will be more younger cyclists than ever this year. At the headquarters of a prominent firm it was said that fully 15 per cent of the year's production would be for juveniles. This is considered an important part of the trade. In speaking about this subject, Dave Shafer, Michael's manager, said recently that if he ever went into the bicycle business he would confine himself to producing wheels for young folki only. He thinks- there would be money in it—New York World. S*n»ible Cycle Shoes. It is pleasant to note that women seem likely to abate or perhaps to abandon the absurd practice of having their cycling shoes, in effect, extend nearly to the knees. It has not been considered by either sei that a neat foot and well turned ankle are an ill looking object, and the legging which has been much in vogoe cannot have been chosen for its beauty. As women do not wheel in cold weather, it should be enough to suggest that excessive bundling of the person cannot conduce to comfort and may tend to chat undesired redness of face. Pedaling must certainly be difficult and ankliag must be painfully so with a wrapping which almost puts the joints in splints, and with a mount which is heaiver und harder to drive than the diamond frame and with a garb which offers wore surface to wind and hinders action of the body women should avoid needless burdens. The wonder is that they ride so well as they do. hampered as they are. Considering what they endure and manage to do, are they really the weaker sex?—New York Commercial Advertiser, Not Much of Anything. If the leading Republican editor in Ohio is the kind of man Forssker describes him to be, he should join the Mugwumps. DYSPEPSIA, Heartburn, Gastritis and al Stomach Disorders positively cured.
