The Justice block on Broadway is being greatly improved by the application of a coat of white paint.- These "white house" fronts are becoming quite the thing and certain ly add greatly to the attractiveness of a building. Harry Pureell, who is traveling for an Eastern shirt house, spent Sunday at home. He reports encouraging- sales in liis particular line of the furnishing trade and, apparently, is well satisfied with the way the well- dressed public is receiving his efforts to see that it is properly clad as to shirts. The destitute family which received aid froih Trustee Jackson and transportation to Delphi last Thursday is still continuing its travels as noted by the following from the Lafayette Courier of Saturday: A man and wife and their three children en route to Carthage, Mo., from Petersburg, Va.. arrived here yesterday afternoon.

Lieutenant Haas found them on the street last evening, and at 8 o'clock called on Trustee Harrison who furnished the family something to eat and transportation to Danville, 111. REMOVED. Tlic Tearins Oown of the Chronicle oveH Another old I/p.nd .TJarU. i . Workmen yesterday morning commenced tearing down the Chronicle building on Broadway. Bro. McSheehy has become comfortably and snugly, though temporarily.quarter- tered in the Moore building, next door to his old stand, and thus enjoys an excellent station from which to view the work on the magnificent new Chronicle, building which will soon tower on the site of the old building, which has for the past decade been identified with the Chronicle or the Chronicle with it. The plan: Mr. McSheehy have in hand for his new building present a front which in point of chaste elegance is not eicelled in the city, and the entire building will correspond in point of' finish with the very imposing front. The deitruction of the old building revealed massive carved timbers indicative of the time it was built, a time when black walnut timber played a part in the construction of buildings, rouinously extravagant to our more advanced ideas in that direction. This building was originally a one story structure and was built by an earh- resident by the name of Quigley along in the early "40's, and by him occupied f or souis years as a grocery. In 18o2 the building was bought by Judge Robt. F. Groves, vrho built on an additional story and occupied it a? an office and residence, continuing; to live there till in the "60's, when the place was sold to Puterbangh & liachmaii and Snal'y . fell into the hands of the former from whom' the building was purchased by its present owner, Mr. MeSheehy, about ten years ago. since which time it, has served well the purpose to which it was put, and each recuring Saturday morn during this decade has seen a Chronicle, issuing hot and-smoking, so to speak, from the presses rattling av?ay in the dungy old room. The building Mr. HcSheehy contemplates will rise from the dust of the old wreck will be a credit to the craft of this city and it is indeed encouraging to know that the business has proven sufficiently profitable, in one case, at least, to admit of the laudable enterprise. MET>AL, CONTEST. Lively 4'onspetition iV>r th Wold Medal. The appearance of the Standard Theatre Company at Dolans last night was greated by a, packed house and the old favorite, "The Octoroon," was presented in a manner enjinmently satisfactory to all.

At the lome of Dr. J. H. Allen, 807 North itreet, was a acene of sorrew which leatk itself could scarce have euder»d more pitious and the grief aden eyes of three sisters azed into the gloom await- ng the arrival of the search party which would return to them he brother who, in the wildness of us delirium had escaped in the darkness and the storm and was lost, for t was Albert Ray, the invalid brother of Mrs. Br. Allen who was the ob ect ofall this solicitude,and inwhose weakened state it would seem that death must inevitable result from :he terrible exponsure he was incur- ng. More than three months ago. Albert Ray, then recovering from an attack of La Grippe which he suf- ered in Virginia, came here accompanied by a sister on a visit of recuperation to his sister Mrs. Allen. Shortly afterward he suffered a serious relapse from which he now but slowly'recovering and his father, Mr. J. W. Ray. a prominent resident, of Akron, Ohio, and an other sister were called aer* that the "ioving miuistra- tions of all might hasten the young man's recovery. Yesterday morning tie was apparently somewhat better, but as the afternoon came and with it the gloomy weather, be grew worse and became delirious, a characteristic of his illness due to the Atmospheric change. In the evening Dr. Allen and his wife stayed in the young man's room to take their turn in the nightly vigil by his bedside. About 10 o'clock the doctor reclined on a couch for a few moment's nap, Half an hour later Mrs. Allen, who was sitting- reading, was startled by the sudden extinguishment of the light. Hastening to light the lamp she was alarmed to see her brother, who had slipped out of bed and stealthily approaching had turned out the light, standing in the front window of the room about to leap out. Mrs. Allen rushed to the window and grabbed the delirious patient, but before she could receive aid be had pulled himself loose from her grasp and dropped to the ground beneath, a distance of full\" fifteen feet. Hor- riflsd at her brother's fail, Mrs. Allvu called for help and rushed down stairs, expecting to find the invalid lying injured on the ground, but, remarkable to relate, there was no sign of the >ouog man to be seen. He had disappeared in the darkness and gtortn and no clue as to his direction was to be found. Clad as the invalid was. only in a suit of underclothes, the doctor knew that decisive action was necessary to prevent long eifo- gure to the wet and jirou.-'inx a fpw neighbors a thorough search of thr premises was made but '.msuccess fully and it was then decided to give a general alarm, and before midnight three hundred men and boys were out in the >torw looking for Albert Ra-r. From the fact that a shawl and a pair of slippers were missing from the room the unfortunate young man niuit have grabbed them in his strange flight, but they would be so littl* protection. The young man is 22 year* of age and his long illness has made him a physical wreck. His delirious state last night readily accounts for his uufoi-iuuate vagary and could only account for the unnatural ctreugth which must have kept v hi;ii up daring his flight in the darkness. The relatives of the younjr luau are well niph distracted by his disappearance and as the search parties last night failed to reveal his whereabouts they feel that the terrible exposure to which he was subjected must resale fatally. This morning—if ha is not found by daylight—a thorough aud more systematic search will be made and the unfortunate j-oung man will surely soon be found. EXTRA THIS WEEK!
