Walk right in. I , W. O. Royse Insurance Agent, Iu dianapolis—^The development of the colored race at the South is some thing surprising. When the war feroke out I lived in Mississippi but not affiliating with the Confederacy ] brought iny wife whom 'I married in that state and came North. My wife's father owned a large number of slaves among them a Negro man called "Jim." Jim was what was known as a li jneati nigger." He was an agitator and was continually stirring up the other slaves and making trouble. He had a little smattering of education, he could read a lit tie bit and fig-ure to somo extent; how he ever learned it no one ever knew. My -wife's relatives having left that part of the state after the war I did not visit the old plantation again until a short time ago. I inquired after the old black fellows that were on the plantation when I left, and among them Old Jim. I drove down to the "big house," as the slaves used to call the family residenee,and there I found Jim, the 'Lord of the Manor. When; he was freed the natural energy that had made him a "mean nigger" in slavery "and t'lr% slight education h<5 had picked up came to his rescue, and he settled down and went to work like a man. Now he owns the old plantation Jie used to work as a-slave; 'he Las » small army of colored- uVen working it; he deals in cptto.nj owns.-a sawmill aud is one of the largest shippers of lumber in that county. Of :ourse Jim is art exception," but Jim's achievements snows the possibilities of the race. .- . :;p T. A. Wilson, Canadiagua,"^. Y.— [ -was traveling from the Pacific Coast to Chicago last ''week? 'by the overland route. WTieri ' I got into the sleeper at San Francisco- there were beside myself three br. f four other passengers with, through tickets East, and as I expected' to be cooped up -with tbeiu / for 3^veral days and nights I proceeded t*o get acquainted.. We couipared notes. One proved to be a wealthy fruit grower of Los Angeles, and another a tourist from Washington. After a cigar together in the smoking room we repaired to our seats in the sleeper, and concluded to indulge in a little gauie of cards just to -while the time away. But we needed another player to make it four- landed. ;:, I •approaehed'J'a cleanly shaven gentlemanly ^appearing fel- o,w immaculately attired, and invited him to join ug. I noticed an auatftied '••twinkle,' in his7eye as" he courteously declined, -adding by way of explanation, "I • am the Rev. Mr. -, of New; : Hampshire.'' I apologized of course but he assured me that no apology was necessary. [ had a flask of cock-tails in my grip and I invited my companions to take a nip, but told them they must go into the smoking room to indulge, explaining that the gentleman across the aisle was a minister. Every once in a while;pne of us; would"collar the grip and make a pilgrimage to the smoking room and return much refreshed. We were da decent as possible about it, but of course the young minister caught on. After we had made several round trips each, he stopped me as I came back, and said with a sniile, "Please don't allow my presence to radonveriience' you. I appreciate the situation perfectly. Before 1 studied for the ministry I was a traveling man myself,: and," added with a-r. quiet chuckle, "I relieve I could hold my own at cards yet, but it seems I declared myself a ittle too early." ••••-•• W. D. Smythe,; ;of Columbus," O.— , "I i?ell paper and] 'printers stock. I have been traveliogin Missouri and Kansas-tor a,month or so; F["I; was at Troy,' Kansas,- about Bt?" weeks ago. I called upon old Sol' Miller, the editor of the Kansas Chief, one of the oldest -weekly papers.'jln Kansas. Old 3ol started the paper .when.tbe town had less than three ^hundred inhabitants, /and; he ; has been pegging away until he 'has one of the best country ; newspapers in the- State. As .soon as ,1- . entered I saw that something was wrong. Old Sol was pacing, up and down his office, shearing. like a trooper. His face was red and bis eyes snapped, while his hair Stood out like porcupine quills. "Coine in," he growled, "and sit down if you want to see ma stamp the livers out of these infernal curs." In about a minute in came a crowd of a dozen men; one of theiii, the spokesman, stepped forward and began to speak, when Old Sol "jumped up and, shaking his long bony forefinger at him, shouted—''Stop! I don't want a word out of yon "till 'I'm done. Gentlemen," he continued,' his form shaking with suppressed excitement, '•I have lived among you and eon- ducted a newspaper for twenty • years. Not a month in all that time i bnt'sonwof yotrtcr'your relatives; or friends, or members of the sneaking hypocritical gang that is trying to down me; have come to me to suppress facts—cold facts—in regard to your : miserable shortcomings and sneaking tricks. I usually complied but these articles, though not printed, were written and laid away for just sunn an occasion »s this. I am a candidate for the legislature, despise Prohibition because I despise hypocrisy, and I despise you and all your sniveling, hypocritical gang. I repeat, I am a, candidate for the legislature-and 1 don't propose to be bluffed or scared off the the track. have just this to say. The moment I heai 1 oi: one word or the slightest move on your ,part, or the part of your despicable crowd to injure me, just that moment will I start my presses and keep tkem going until I print every last article that I have suppressed in the past. I'll do it, By Heavens, if I have to start a daily edition to get it all in. Now you may go." And they did, and a more crestfallen set of individuals I never set eyes on. A HUGE SPARROW'S NEST. Tlu-, Watrr Works' Chimney Utilized as a I Komi! by the JLUtlc JEnsrltsh A verV interesting sight uiay be witnessed these summer evenings by any one happening in the vicinity of the water works building. The pumping machinery is worked by water power and as the boilers are very seldom used, the large brick chimney or smoke stack has become the home of thousands of English sparrows which have built their nests around the interior of tbe chimney until it is almost filled. As the day draws to a close these birds may be -seen collecting from all points of the compass, and with almost deafening chatter begin circling round and round in a great. circle which gradually closes in toward the opening in the top of the hiinney. The circling, chattering cloud of birds has now assumed a spiral shape, when those at the lower point are seen to dive into the chirnnpy, and this aerial waltz continues, until the last sparrow has disappeared into the opening and been stowed away in bis cozy nest for the night. _ HEK BODY AT REST. Tlie Remains of Poor I/eo Sialey LaiU to Rest at Iti ianapelis. Henry Staley, the aged gardener at Long Cliff asylum and father of the unfortunate girl whose sad and untimely death in the city hospital at Indianapolis last week was so widely commented on by the press here and at Indianapolis, called at the Journal office yesterday and showed a letter which he had just received from Chan. Girton, undertaker at Indianapolis, which assured Mr. Staley that his dauahter's remains were decently buried through the kindness o£ Mrs. Bullit, the matron of the Home for the Friendless, in which the girl wag cared for a couple of weeks proceeding, her removal to the hospital. The body is now lying in Undertaker jUrton's private vault. Mr. Staley is a poor man and can illy afford the expense of the removal of his daughter's remains to this place, so they will probably be kept a while longer n the vault ^waiting his definite reply as to what he will be able to do and, if it is his wish, will then be buried. _ There will be the usual services in the English Lutheran church to-day. Pastor MeMackin will conduct the fnneral services over the remains of the late Q-ebrge Bauer, at the house, corner George and Twenty-first streets, at 10 a. ru., but will fill his aulpit aa usual at 11 a. m. The subject for the sermon will be: "The Transfiguration of Jesus." The vening service is at 7:30 p. m., and ;he theme- of the sermon will bn: '•Solomon's Choice." The Christian Endeavour meeting is at 6:30. To all ;hese services you itre cordially in- rited. The lady Gleaner's of Whefttla-rid Street Church are completing ar- rangeuierits to serve a first-clast, supper in the Hagenbuck block next Monday evening. They cordially invite you, and request you, ;o-bring your lady with you. Sup- >er will be served from 5 to 8 o'clock, ice-cream and strawberries," will be served until 10.

Mr. Andrew Winklebleck, the brother of the absconding man, re-. ceived a telegram from tho latter on Friday at his home in Chicago, that he would join him there that afternoon, and they would return to Logansport and straighten oat his business. It now appears that this •was a monumental bluff, as it only served to allay the fears of the parties who held the alleged bad paper her*. Night came and with it no Winklebleck and it was then felt that Henry Winklebleck had made good his intentions . and had probably safely crossed the border land ofCanada. Mr. A. Winklebleck arrived in the city from Chicago yesterday but was unable to throw any light on his brother's departure aed knew abso- ,lutelr nothing of his preseut whereabouts. He was busily engaged all afternoon with Henry's victims and it is thought a partial settlement of their losses will be effected. The operations of the skillful forger effect the following parties as .follows: First National Bauk. $3 000; State National Bank, $l,20U; I). P. Baldwin, §1,100, H. S. Murdock, ,OOU. It is also stated that tnere are other notes out bearing signatures alleged to be forged and covering sums of §2,000 or more. Besides tuis there is good paper floating to the amount of $6,090. Altogether it i» a heavy failure aud as Mr. Winklebleek'a mill business has been running at a considerable los» for some mouths past, the assets on that properly are not very great, besides being covered by mortgages by his securities. The case was the principal topic of conversation in business circles yesterday and universal surprise was expressed at the operations of a man whom i o one could have suspected of such a fraudulent course. F«l| Joltn A FATAL, FALL. _______ it. Woods, a Voanc Cornlte Malier or this city |c rom the Koof of the Bluffton Court House and Mecelrt* . Fatal Injuries. A telegram was received by Mrs. John L. Woods, 403 Ottowa street, yesterday at 3 o'clock, that her husband had fallen from the roof of the court house at BLuffton, Ind, receiving injuries from whioh he could not recover. Mr. I. N. Woods, the well known drayman, and father of the injured man, left on the 4:17 Wabash train.forthe scene of the accident and was tollowed last night by the mother and young wife of the unfortunate man. A special dispatch to the Journal from Ft. Wayne last night states that Woods, who was working on the ro->f at the new court house at Blufton had fallen about noon, a distance of 54 feet to a stone heap below. He alighted on his feet and the bones protruded through his shoes. He then toppled over on his head and struck the stones, crushing the skull. He was also internally injured ami his death was uinmentarity expected. The unfortunate young man is twenty-six years of age and is employed by John A. Carr, the cornice maker. He went to Bluffton on Wednesday to work on the court tiouse there. Just five weeks ago last evening he was married to Miss Laura Grove, an estimable young lady at Port Wayne nnd his bride is inconsolable at the fearful news of her husbands futal accident.
