NO SCARCITY OF In the Hoosier State to Respond to the President's Second Call. TWEBTY THOUSAND NAMES NOW IN Of Those Who Could >of Be C»«rd in the JFlrtt Call—Development* In the Indmn- Kpolifl Vitriol-Throwing Oatr»£«— Lew "Wallace Ha» a "L*>u<l" Call from N«- braaka—Coin<>l<I<-nt.ul Sudden Deaths — Prohibitionists Nominate a Stale Ticket. Indianapolis, May 2G.—The president's Becond call for troops yesterday has started the military fever hotter than ever. Charles Wilnon, military secretary to the governor, went to his office about 1:30 p. m. and found a crowd of men about the door waiting for him, that they might offer to the slate the .cervices of companies of infantry which they said they had raised. The secretary found the u-lphun* l>ell jinglin» merrily as he entered the office and at the other end of the line was somo one with another c-ompany. There was a pressure from both personal callers and men at telphones to KOI their companies of volunteer's called into service by the governor. Has 2O.OOO Nnmrs on Hie List. Secretary Wilson .said: "\Vhen the governor gets the official call i'<T troops he will go about making up Indiana's quota very deliberately. There are 550.000 men in Indiajia who are subject to Military duty. Of this number we have «n file more than iO.OOO names of meii •who wanted to enlist under the first call, and for whom no places conld be found. I believe we could get 00,000 Indiana soldiers to Indianapolis in a little while, at least almost as quick as the Indiana National Guard responded, but they will not be brougtit here so soon, Where Preference Will Ue Given. •In making up the troops for the sec- •nd call the governor will give preference to those parts of the state which are not now represented by regiments In the field. The companies In the Indiana National Guard came from the north and northeastern parts of the state. The southern part, from Terre Haute to Kvansville, is well represented. So is Indianapolis. The southeastern part and the extreme northeastern part are not represented. I think these two parts will be given an' opportunity to offer men for the service before other portions are." OUTRAGE ON IVR. HASKIXSON. One Woman Confesses That She I>i<l It for Another. Indianapolis. May 26.—After a day of 4eclarations of innocence Mrs. Lulu Kline confessed to Superintendent Quigley that it was she who threw acid Into Dr. Haskinson's face Monday night. Superintendent Qulgley detailed a patrolman to find Mrs. Kline's reputed husband and take him to the police ata- tJon. The man was found, and after an interview with the woman said she trould tell all. What she told was that •he had committed the crime for the »ake of and at the request of a Mrs. Goodin, who had befriended her and »-ho continually talked about Dr. Haskinson, declaring that the fair physician had come between her and James Van Natta, to whom she was engaged. Mrs. Kline said that after much per- euaslon she agreed to spoil Dr. Haskinson's beauty for Mrs. Goodin. and received directions from Mrs. Goodin as to how she should proceed. Shewastog-o to Dr. Haskinson and make a night engagement. When the doctor filled the encasement she was to carry the acid •with her and at. the first opportunity w*s to dash it dlrec-tly into Dr. Easkin- Bon's eyes.

Crawfordsville, Ind.. May 26.--General Wallace has been invited by the G. A. R. of Nebraska to be its guest at the annual encampment to be held at Lincoln next September.. The invitation is •. unique one. in that it is personal Invitation of almost every member of the order in the state. Ksch post had its members sign the invitation personally, and it required a large express package to convey the invitation as it ftaally appeared. The signers of the in- Tlta-tion represent 130 infantry' regi- *»ents. eleven cavalry regiments and •erenteen batteries. General Wallace will accept the Invitation unless he is in Cuba at that time. General Wallace states that when the rebel battle flags are returned the list •will be one minus, as he has a rebel flag •which he intends to keep forever. It once belonged to the Seventeenth Virginia cavalry, and it was captured at the battls of Monacacy. One of General •Wallace's officers killed the rebel major irho carried it, and then bore it in triumph to Gem-eat Wallace, presenting it to him on the field. _ Coincidence ill Sudden Dralh. Anderson, lud.. May 26. — Patrick Cugan and George Sowers, residing on the Hamilton county line, just west of " this city, were killed about the same time by"lightning. The former was out milking his cow and the latter was driving his cows home to milk. Every bone in Dugan's body was shattered. His boots were burned to a crisp. Sowers was struck on the head, the lightning running down to his chin and then to his breast. His limbs were paralyzed. The horss died from the shock. The «nly mark to show he had been hit was * small blue streak on his head and across his face. Nearly Killed by » Yiclons Horse. Martinsville, Ind., May 26.—Isaac Beecham came near losing: his life •white working with Cecilian Prince, a •tallion owned by A. S. Mitchell. The Jiorw caufht him wiile he was is the •tall, catching him with his teeth just fc«!ow th* «hort ribs, -where his clothing the thickest, lifting him from the ground and shaking him until he -v»a« unconscious. Beecham was found -py his wife and rescued from his perilous position. The horse did not step on him, and thus he escaped fatal hurt. His right har.d was broken, and his side Is very sore, but he sustained no internal injury. His clothing was almost torn off him. Adventure of a Bug. Bedford. Ind.. May 26.—The wife of Dr C. H. Emory, of this city, a fen- days ago noticed a. small white speck en "the top of a hard oak center table, of which she has been the owner for six years. Later the speck suddenly developed into an opening about three- eighths of an inch in diameter, out .if which crawled a strange looking bug, gray in color, about one inch in length, and having several arms and legs. There is much speculation concerning the «trange insect. Undoubtedly it was imbedded in the top of that polished center table ever since the table was made from the rough lumber by the manufacturer. WOMEN SCARCE AS GOLD Few of the Fair Sex on the Way to the Klondike. have seen fewer •women on the trail than I expected and in my judgment fewer than there should be. If they are needed anywhere nnder heaven, it is right here, where there is so much-need of good nursing, so much difficulty in securing wholesome and well cooked food and so much call for words of | comfort and hope.

"Why, partners desert partners, lifelong friends become bitter enemies, and husbands and wives come to hate each other." It is not quite as bad as that in this camp, for thus far all reigus serene, but there are circumstances that sorely try one's patience. I would not advise a bride to choose this trip for a honeymoon, unless she were a woman who makes the best of everything, no matter what happens and is wise enough, like B'rerRabbit, to"keepon sayin nuffin."

Here she makes great; pocs of beans, fries quantities of ham, bakes mammoth loaves of bread tbat seen) almost enough to supply a bakery or restaurant. But she is as cheerful as though she enjoyed it ail and glad that she can help her brother. To me she seemed little short of a heroine. Konsli on the Dogs.

Certainly 00 photographs can begin to do justice to the combination of serrated peaks, covered with deep snow that seems carved like marble dazzling in the sunlight, or to the deep blue of the glaciers, and the softer shade of the cloudless sky over all. The summer trail follows along the edge of the canyons while the winter one is over the bed of the rivers. The traveler is Bhnt in between high walls of dark, beetling ledges. Above is but a narrow segment of the heavens and below a floor of ice and snow varying greatly ia thickness, according to the speed of the torrent. In places the roar of the rapids is plainly heard beneath the feet. The whole color scheme reminds me of some of the winter scenes of Verestchagin, only j»o artist can match it. Even the blizzard—and we have had two within a vfeek—has a grandeur and pictur- esqueness that compensate the lover of nature in her tempestuous moods for considerable physical discomfort. Peculiarly Penetrating. I was fully prepared for cold weather, bnt not for the penetrating quality of the snow, which when melted quickly goes through any garment unless it be of thick rubber." When the clothing is bronghc near the fire, the snow soon melts upon it, but as soon as the wearer goes out again, of course the garments freeze and become uncomfortable, if not dangerous to health. Where fuel is scarce and the tent is ismall, it is by no Of course it is useless to interfere, for it would do little good. There is no society with a long name to call upon to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, and it is hard to determine which suffers most, the dogs, the horses, the mules, the oxen or the men. Each deserves profound pity. The argo- nauts themselves are struggling and straining under unaccustomed loads. They are often weary to fainting, and some of them are already disheartened. Yet they plod on, following an alluring mirage or will o' the wisp, which gleams and glitters as it beckons them on. Whether"they will ever reach it or whether the. picture will change to one of desolation and. despair no one can say. "Gold, gold," said a disheartened man to me the other day. "What will not a man do in the hope of gold?" Another said to me today: "My wife is a plncky woman. She would never forgive me if I turned back now." I am afraid pride is carrying as many men to Dawson as the belief that any great gain is to be had there. NICHOLS HILL. THE HUMAN „..„ _ ANDftMAlf BAREBACK MM.*™ Mr. Wnn. F.

"The hungry girl is considered the genuine article in Washington nowadays," said the proprietor of a well known restaurant to a Post reporter. The era of tbe young -woman who •when accompanied by her mau friend only nibbled daintily at the food set before her in a restaurant has passed, so far as this town is concerned at any rate. She doesn't consider it necessary •when her young man ia along -with her to just peck skimpily at a salad or something like that to show him -what a spirituelle, aesthetic nature she possesses. We used to get hordes of girls like that—girls that you could tell by their general expression were nothing short of ravenous for a good, square meal, but -who, in conformity with the ses- thetic idea, wonld only make little dabs and pokes at the stuff their escorts ordered for them and then probably go home and consume all the cold stuff they could rake out of the refrigerator. "The average girl that comes in here now, however, eats just about as nmch again as the male person along with her. She tells the man frankly that she's starved and that she wants solids and a whole lot of there, and she goes at the dishes set before her like a hired roan after a hard day of harvesting. I've got any nnmber of young women customers who make nothing of getting away with a baker's dozen of big fried oysters at a sitting, and there are not many men who do that A very dainty looking, slender yoong woman came in here yesterday, her beau along with her, and she txsed np five good sized lamb chops with trimmings in a fashion tbat was delightful to eee.
