Dorner, of Frankfort, was in the city Yesterday. Mr. Doru « is. compiling a new aud complete city directory ot Frankfort, and was here arranging to have the same printed by a Logaiisport printing house. "Barney" is a young newspaper man and a very pleasant * gentleman. W. J.

The supper given by the ladies of the Wheatland street M. E. church in the Hagenbuck building last evening was very largely patronized and the serving of ice cream and strawberries after the supper also attract ed quite a'crowd. The Monday morning slate in the Mayor's court contained a longer list than usual and five transgressors heard judgment passed on their respective cases. Drunks and dis- orderlies were the rule and the usual ten days or f-[0 were accepted by the prisoners with more or less grace. W. Lee Smith left for Indianapolis yesterday to attend the annual meeting of the Indiana Funeral Directors' association which convenes to-day. He was accompanied by Mr. Gfeo. H. Sherive, of Boston, Mass., a professional embaliaer, in the employ of the Egyptian Chemical company of Boston. The Good Templar's will hold a, grand banquet at their hall over the First National bank this evening. The society is divided into two sections that alternate in furnishing a weekly entertainment. A system of marking has been adopted, and a careful record x kept of the merits and demerits of these entertainments kept, and at the end of the year the division having the best record is banqueted at the expense of the other division. Section B has the best record for the year, and the A's must go dowQ In their pocket and foot the bill. Mr. R. G. Ball, an agent in advance of Barnum's "greatest show on earth," was in the city yesterday making final arrangements for the appearance of this "grand aggregation of consolidated wonders, etc., etc.." in this city July 8. It is said that the show this year requires 63 cars to transport it and carries 1,000 people, 1,200 of whom are necessary to present the grand spectacular production of the Burning ot Rome, which is the great feature of the show this season. It is needless to say that tbe average Logansport boy is already hoarding his nickles for the event. The young man at the telephone office who was so busily engaged in talking to "his Annie" at the still hour of midnight, should modulate his tones, that persons passing on the street be not attracted and held speelbound thereby. Whether it was little Annie Rooney, or just simply gentle Annie who was tbe object of the young inans plaint, will probably never be decided, but sura she must have been at the business end of the wire at Peru" to have occasioned the loud tones which attracted the attention of the police and midnight pedestrians for a square away. Yesterday in the Circuit Court the case of the Chicago Gas and P> tro- leuru company vs. Florence Diffien- baugh was in progress. This is a suit begun by the plaintiff to secure right of way for a natural gas line tlirough defendant's land in Tipton township by filing a bill of exceptions to the report of the Board of Appraisers appointed to appraise the value of the lands so effected. The Chicago Gas company is meeting with stubborn resistance by many on the proposed line of its gigantic pips line from the gas field to Chicago and several similar suits have been filed against other parties who refuse to let their lands at the rate of compensation offered by the company. The case was continued, yesterday. A brutal fight was witnessed on Market j>treet just east of Fourth, SunOnyt'night about 10 o'clock. Sun day flgpts have been altogether too frequent o! late to be in keeping with t(he citys deserved reputation for la.?r and order, and as no arrests have.tollowedany of the fights,which hav^i disgraced the past tbree Bun- days, it is wondered what the police areiabout. This last brutal exhibition was given by Nace Eckert the painter and a "pardner" who asault- ed James Parrel), a cigar maker, and riot content with; knocking',' their liian down several times, kicked him about the head, inflicting,painful.jin- juries. The cigarniaker l was, no match for his twp cowardly assailants. Before he could eacape.he was badly beaten. THE M'CJLOSKEY CASE. The Inquest in the Case of the Death of Samuel aieClaakey Continue*. Acting Coroner Fender went to Royal Center yesterday morning to hold the inquest into the causes of 1 the death of Samuel McCloskey, who was killed by Willard Harvey on Friday. The evidence of John Harvey, brother of the prisoner, John Hoover, the constable, Wm. Marshall and Thomas Sheets, who wenj present at the tims of the quarrel which led to the death of McCloskey, and their testimony agreed substan tially with the facts already presented in the case. Sheets, accompanied by Constable Hoover, went to the sawmill to buy some lumber, Sheets acting as agent for Hiram Harvey, whose sons Willard and John also went to the will to see about the Imnber. While there they got into a dispute with McCloskey, the mill foreman, who in the absence of his employer was the apparent manager, over some extra lumber which they claimed for the use of a horse belonging to them which had been employed about the mill and John Harvey called McCloskey a liar. MoCloskey grabbed up a stick and made for Harvey, but dropped the stick and the two clinched. It was then that Willard Harvey picked up the heavy scantling and dealt the murderous blow which led to the death of the young mill foreman a few hours later. The inquest will be continued to day and a vurdict will probably be arrived at to-morrow. The funeral of Samuel McCloskey, the murdered man, was held at Pisgah church in Jefferson township on Sunday, Rev. Baer, of Royal Center, conducting the services. The funeral was one of the largest ever held in that region, hundreds of the sympathizing friends of the family thus suddenly and cruelly bereaved turning out to pay their last tribute of respect to their former friend, who met death in so cruel a form. Well Hardly. Washington Special Cincinnati Enquirer: Indiana " politicians iu Washington say that Congressman Owen, of the Logansport district, is apprehensive that Ex-Attorney General Baldwin will become an independent candidate for Congress, and that the Democrats will indorse him. Mr. Baldwin is one of the prominent Republicans of the Hoosier State who have repudiated the Republican policy of protection, aud has expressed himself against the HcKinley bill. He is in thorough accord with the Democrats on the tariff question, and it is believed that if he would offer himself as a candidate against Mr, Owen he would receive the support of the Democrats of the district and quite a large number of the Republicans. The remains of John L. Woods, the young cornice maker who was killed by falling from the roof of the court house at Bluffton, Ind., where he was engaged in working for John A. Carr, were brought to his late home in this city at 10:215, Sunday night and prepared for burial. The funeral will be held from the residence on Ottowa street this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, services conducted by Rev. A. B. Me- Makin, of the English Lutheran church. Interment ia Mt. Hope. The remains will be interred under the auspices of the Knights of Honor, of which 'the deceased was a member. By her attorney, M. F. Mahoney, Sarah Carrathers yesterday filed a suib for divorce In the circuit; court, against her husband, Henry Carruthers, alleging cruelty and habitual drunkenness. Carruthers is the colored man who was arrested on Saturday for carrying concealed weapons, a revolver having been displayed too promisconsly by him. Before the mayor yesterday morning be said that he was carrying'the guu as a protection, claiming that he was going away. This trouble with the police precipitated a long standing row with his wife, and she straightway began suit for a legal separation as above.

Mrs. Maggie Lisetta Bauer desires to thank the Order of Chosen Friends for the kindess to her husband in his late illness, and to her in her bereavement, and to publicly commend the fraternal sentiments of the Order. • The funeral qf S.

In the Kniffin training the bearing shoots arc allowed to hang clown from the anas, and in the common mode they are tied up in a vertical position. These two figures represent at one view the two modes and the distinction between them. In the common mode care and labor are required to tie up the shoots and to keep them in position; in the Kniffin training they are simply allowed to hang by their own weight, and no other care is required, except it be to nib off needless shoots as they start in /•Tpwth. The c-.liief advantage of this mode is t'ts simplicity and saving of labor. It has the additional merit of preventing a rampant growth in tho bearing shoots. As the wires aro required to support the horizontal arms only, but one wire is needed for each arm, and but two wires. axe required for the trellis. The lower one may bo about three feet above the ground, ttie npper one about two and a half feet higher. These distances may be varied to suit rampant or moderate growers. Sometimes tho lower wire is three and a half feet high, to admit a free passage of tho attendant across the rows when desired. In training the vine by thia method adopt the same general management as for common modes, that is, grow a single cane the first year after setting out the young vine; then tha next year start the two arms for the lower wire, with an ad- tional cane up to the top wire; the third year train one or else two upper arms, as the streTigth of the vine will admit. COMMON MODE FOUNDED ON THE THOMERY SYSTEM. j!,It Howl hardly he told that, drooping 'fruit hcarinpt shoots are to he cut off each year to one or two good buds for another year's pvowth of 'bearing shoots; and that tho chief 'v,-ork required through the season is to nib off tha needless sprouts oa any part of tho vine when they first appear, iintl to keep tho ground in good cultivation. Thanks are due to Country Gentleman for the foregoing illustrations ,"-n<'l accompanying; descriptions. Arbor Bay Planting. iu a circular of instructions relative to tree planting on Arbor day in the eastern states, issued by the department of ag- ricnlturc, Mr. B. E. Farnow summarizes the elements of success in tree planting ;ia follows: 1. Trees suitable to soil and surrounding conditions. 2. A well developed root system kept in living condition. 3. Wide holes and mellow soil. •1. Firm packing of soil around the roots. On the subject of selection Mr. Farnow advises that the choice for Arbor clay planting bo limited to trees of recognized merit native to the locality. Silver maple, Carolina poplar and 003 elder will grow where nothing elaa will, but aro short lived. Sugar maple, red maple, linden and elm are trees suited for street and lawn. Trees suitable for special positions are sycamore, black walaut, black biruh,chestnut, ash and beech. Two foreigners of note are horse chestnut and patilownia. Potasli Fertilizer for J''ruh. Wo find tho following in a report from tho Massachusetts experiment station: potash fertilizers havo decidedly proved the desirable qualities of fruits. Wiicrov- er tho percentage of this oluniont lias been raised, the ch;iiv;e ia aorrtjnj.ianied by an increase of sugar and.n dec "case of acid. This ia important—a nui.ttLT of dollars and cents. Other things beiin* equal, tho fruit with the largest per cc-nt. of snj;ar will bring the highlit price. Moreover, less desirable varieties may ho brought up to r, higher standard, thns giving value to some good qnality, as hardiness and prolific bearing. The fact that the quality and character of garden and orchard products can he modified by the eii'ect of special fertilizers is of immense importance in its practical as well asi scientific hearing. Hces tLiitl Fruit. A California correspondent in Pacific Rural Press writes thus on the subject of bees and fruit: "It ia tho candid opinipn of tha writer that tho injury to fruit which is charged to bees, begins with decay, birds, yellow- jackets and other pilferers, and the offices of tho beo are such as are only beneficial in the economy of nature; The province of the honey bee is to fertilize the blossom and save the nectar from it and from decaying fruit. A bee is guided to its legitimate plunder by the sense of smell, and, I believe, never punctures the skin. Remember that in nine casea out of ten failure in the germination of very small seeds is the result of too deep covering.

Certain it is that leathern iu-Ullery svas used in this great battle by Gustavus, though it is equally certain that the guns were never used afterward. The reason of that. however, was that the leather guns having demonstratod the value of light artillery, a way was discovered of making the metal guns lighter, and the greater durability of the latter gave them the superiority."
