There's a corset that isn't a corset, a waist with straps for the shoulders and rows of buttons to button on skirts and stockingsupporters and so forth—the Ball Waist —and that's about the whole of it. No; you can put h in the \vashtub-no metal in it or on it. . It is worth your seeing, if for nothing but how to sew on buttons-to button easy and never come off, and how to make buttonholes wear forever. Women differ in their ways of thinking and dressing as well as fa other ways. This waist is for women whose minds are made up that they \vor.'t wear corsets. There's much to be said 0:1 both sides; but did you ever ; iear of a woman who h.'dr.'i: made up her mind in ^•Lr way? and is there any o.-sible'use in trying to get I-*,-? to change'it? She will and she will; or she won't ;u:cl she won't. You can get the Ball XVaisi: and wear it a week or two or three; and, if you don't want it, take it back to the store and get your money.

Mr. Nicholas Smith has received from a friend in Nashville, Tenn., a piece of tin roof from the Hermitage the home of General Andrew Jackson. The roof was placed on the house in 1839, and has just been removed. It is in splendid condition, and apparently is not the least injured by its fifty-one year's of exposure to the weather. Columbia City Commercial: The only attorney now living who was a practicing lawyer before the first court held in Whitley county—1839— will be in attendance at thp dedication of the court house on June 5th. Mr. Wright has always resided in Logangport, his present home. This particular term of court was held at the coantry home of Jos. Parrett, in Cleveland township. John W. Wright, brother of the subject of this sketch, was at that time prosecuting attorney and was afterwards judge. Williamson Wright is quite an old gentleman and his presence at the dedication will recall early legal transactions to the minds of a number of our citizens. It is more than likely that Mr. Wright will repeat some unwritten history from which the younger generation will receive much knowledge of the pioneer's life. Will You Guess?

Indianapolis News: The dismissal by District Attorney Chambers of indictment against "Buck" Stanley, of Logansport, for violating the Federal Election Law, was brought about by Francis Murphy, the temperance apostle. The people who knew Stanley knew him to be dissipated, though he was a fine detective and public officer. He attended one of Murphy's meetings and donned the blue ribbon. Not only did he stop drinking, but he gave himself up to the work, and Mr. Murphy; in a pathetic letter to the Fedral authoriti«s,told of the good work that Stanley is doing and the reformation that has taken place. Several Logansport clergymen also came to to this city in his behalf. As Stanley's offense was not aggravated and he acted under instructions of others the authorities decided to give him a chance, and the nolle was entered, EXCURSIONS VIA PA.

Editor Journal: Thetrustees of the various townships report the term of school just closed as being an unus. ually successful one. While there •till are, and probably always will be, some very inefficient and indifferent teachers, we believe their number is gradually diminishing, and that the majority are progressive, realizing the necessity of keeping up with the times. A large per cent, of the teachers of Cass county are now in attendance at professional schools, or have, at some time, taken a course of training at such a school. This, if continued, can not but have a marked effect upon the schools, and will in time lessen the number of complaints against the public schools. A careful selection of teachers, with a close supervision by trustees and other school officials, has much to do with the success of the schools. The enumeration just taken shows an increase of children of school age in this county of less than 1£ per cent, over 1889, 'the number being 10,273 last year and 10,416 in 1890. The city enumerates 4,931 and the townships 5,485. Below is given a tabulated statement of the enrollment and attendance, with per cent, of same, in the different townships, as gathered from my visiting record: TOWNSHIPS.

And yet there has never been such a thing as a distinctly rheumatic and strengthening plaster, and hundreds have died suddenly where rheumatism has attacked the heart, whose lives mieht have been saved had this plaster been applied in season.
