JTo more games scheduled. at what time they got home. Indianapolis Journal: The trains of the Pennsylvania continue to reach connections south of hers and Louisville from twenty minutes to two hours late. Harry Miller, superintendent of the Louisville division, is not pleased that the fault is placed with the Louisville division, saying tnat if the Chicago division will give him the trains on time," or even half an hour late, he will run them into Louisville on time. The trouble is on the Chicago division. C. M. Bennett, superintendent, is trying to run this division on- an economical plan, making one engine haul a train which should be divided into three to make time. It is expected that within the next few days a strike of switchmen, similar to the one that occurred at Buffalo a few weeks ago, will be inaugurated in the Big Four yards in and around St. Louis. The officials of the road are aware.of the fact that trouble is brewing and have taken the necessary steps to prevent a. strike, but so far their efforts to conciliate the. men have been of no avail. The demands of the men will be for higher wages and shorter hours. The lodges of the Switchmen's Mutual Aid association, at numerous points along the Big Four system have held meetings during the past few days to consider the matter, and it is reported : have decided to inaugurate a general strike if the company refuses to concede to their demands. An agent of the company is in St. Louis endeavoring to secure men to take the places of the switchmen who went on a strike at Columbus yesterday. thing known of the Uvo men Mentor was hunting for some one to tell that he had killed his companion. He found Joseph Greer and Floyd Stover and took them to the scene of the tragedy where Highlander was lying on hiu cart, as lifeless as a stone. The body was .cared for and Mentor was brought to Delphi and surrendered to the sheriff. He is now in jail and refuses to give his version of the affair. Remarkable as it may seem the murdered man was buried Sunday morning before any post mortem .was held or the coroner summed. Highlander at one time drove a team for Gordon & Flowars. He was about thirty-seven years of age and with a young son "batched" on William Stover's farm. The murderer will probably be brought to trial Lhis term of court. A Journal reporter called on Mentor in jail yesterday. He is almost prostrated .and appears to realize fully the serious situation in which the crime places him. He is thirty-four years of age and married, but his wife deserted him a year ago, leaving a little daughter to care for. This little four year old child is now making her home with. Mr. and. Mrs. George Stover, her fathe'r paying her board. . LATER: Coroner Lyons had the body of Highlander disinterred Tuesday evening and a post mortem was held by Dr. C. E. Angel]. An examination disclosed that the skull had beem mashed into a jelly, pieces being driven three inches into the brain. Dr. Angell says the indications are that the murderer dealt his victim from six to ten blows, either one of which would have been fatal.

Pierson passed through the city yesterday having charge of a delegation of nine Sioux Indians from the Pine Kidge Agency,"S. D. destined for the Indian school at Wabash of which he is principal. Their ages ranged from five to nineteen years and although members of a warlike and ferocious tribe did not look it. They will receive a common school education and besides will be taught trades so that when the proper time arrives they will be enabled to earn an honest living-. Referring to the re,port sent to the associated press from Omaha regarding a possible outbreak of the Sioax at the Pine ridge agency Mr. Pierson stated to a Journal reporter that the entire story was a fabrication manufactured probably by Dr. McGillicuddy. the former ageat. Sir. Pierson stated that the Indians at the agency were quiet and were not dancing the ghost dance as was given ouk by the press dispatcbes. That they were being constantly watched and that they knew the moment they would attempt to break away they would be pursued by the troops and that; the result of the last outbreak about two years ago was too well impressed upon their memories to be forgotten so soon. The party arrived on the noon Pan Handle train from Chicago and left over the Wabash road at 4:14. They attracted considerable attention at the Wabash station. Hlxtory of Some Words Connected With the Anclont Wrltlnjy Material. In ancient Egypt the papyrus plant grew in enormous quantities. Th< roots of it were used for food, the bark for ropes, baskets, mats, and even for river boats; the fine skin, of the inner bark was g-lued tog-ether in strips ant; employed as -writing- paper. The word "paper" is, indeed, our modern form oi the word "papyrus." Now this fine skin or rind was imported into Rome and by the Romans called "liber," and when the papyrus was made up into a book it, toe, -was known as a "liber." The case in which such a collection of books was kept was termed (in Low Latin) a "libra- ria," whence, through the French "li- brairie," -we have our English word "library." The Greeks called the plant itself "byblos;" and when among them the papyrus became a book, the latter was termed a "byblos." The earliest Christian writers, using the Greek language, spoke of the Holy Scriptures as "biblia," the books, and later, when the Scriptures were regarded as a single work and not as a collection, the plural form "biblia," the books, was adopted as a Latin singular, "biblia," the book. With slight modification, "biblia" spread into all modern Euro : pean languages, and appeared in English as "the Bible" some time after the Norman conquest. So the very word "Bible" takes us back to those dark days of the oppression, when as yet the great lawgiver was but a weeping babe in the water- flags, and the annals of the Jewish people had not got beyond the second chapter of Exodus. 'Sor is this tlie only instance in which we find the papyrus associated with the tyranny of kings and the sufferings of a nation. One remembers how on the 15th of June, 1215, King John signed the great charter of the constitutional freedom of Britain, and how. aftorhe had signed it, he flung himself in a, burst of fury on the floor and gnawed the straw and rushes with which tlie floors of those days were strcwa. Kow what was "charta.?'' Originally nothing more or less than a sheet of papyrus strips elued ; together as writing paper. So it is to the Egyptian reed that we owe our ' '•charters," "charts." "cards." "cartes" (blanche and de visite), our "cartoons" and our "cartridges. '"—Good Words. SOME REPRESENTATIVE MEN.
