Some Information About the Comi"K Metal. Did you. ever see any Aluminum? Probably oot. Yet is the commonest metal but it has heretofore baen very expensive to put it in shape to be seen. Aluminum is found in Clay. There is enough of it in Cass county to supply the country for years. Under the old acid process a ton of it cost $27,000. Now it is said to- be made for, sixty cents a pound by ono process and fifteen by another. Its qualities render it superior to tin, nickle, silver, iron, steel and copper for the uses they are Dut it. The Evansville Brewing Company seeds out an Aluminum metal the size of a silve: dollar as an advertisement. With r is a card containing the following in< formation. Aluminum is the 'lightest meta known being one-fifth the weight o any other metal, and when pure wil float upon water. It is as pliable as either gold or sil ver, and may be easily beaten into £ thin leaf or drawn into very fine wire. It stands all tests as to discoloration and is readily used where silver would immediately tarnish and dis colorize. Sulphuric or concentrated nitric acid have no effect whatever upon its color. It has been freely used in making various small articles of ornrment, chiefly however, in the manufacture o: opera and field glasses. When cast it is about as hard a* pure silver, but the hammering which is required to make it into a meda' causes it to be'come quite hard. When tempered it has a tensible strength of 38 tons per square inch, taking a harder temper than the 'best steel. It is known as "The Coming Metal" the future success of the air ship greatly depending upon the use of the metal. The medal enclosed has a clear, hard ring, and contains 98 per cent, of pure aluminum. . Scybold-CarrI;rer- At high noon yesterday at the residence of Henry Wipperman, two miles south of the city, Miss Alice Carriger was united in marriage to Mr. Charles Seybold, Rev, A. B. McMackin, -of the nglish Lutheran church officiating. The ceremony was witnessed by a arge number of the relatives of the contracting parties and a royal wedding dinner was served. Numerous jresents were received of a substantial character. The bride is a neice Of Mr. and Mrs. Wipperman and is a very estimaole young lady. The groom is a son of Fredrick Seybold and is a young man of many sterling qualities, possessing a degree of energy which Beans his future success. He and his bride will make their home at the old eyb.old homestead, and are the re- ,ipients of the warmest well-wishes of their many friends. The Journal xtends its well-wishes. May^ they ive long and happily together and be rospered. Pat Kooney To-High l. The New York Press says: , A genuine audience filled every available inch of room last evening to ee Mr. Patrick Rooney exhibit his iet collection of Hiberni'aninns. The rchestra was crowded, tho first ciiclo as crowded, every chair was taken and every bit of flooring sustaired its tanding man or woman." , Very early in the evening the old ign ' 'standing room only" was hung n the outer wall. Strange to say, "Pat Rooney" is not he name of the play but the name -of he star, the piece being "Pat's New Vardrobe," a most amusing comedy. /ir. Rooney.seems >o have improved very time he appears, and yet every ime he appears it would seem tl.ere no room for improvement His rishisms are funnier than ever, and nis "wardrobe" simply immense. The tartest on Ilecord. Kokomo Tribune: [Friday evening a late of glass 143x197 inches was aken off the - polishing table at the late glass works and safely carried to he shipping-room.

Purcell just returned from lokorno making a big deal taking in he gas well in rear -of the Clinton ouse. ..-.-""'' AM Old IiOKannporter* Indianapolis News: One of the most -picturesque members of the House is "Clem." Kera, the 'first Democratic Representative from Porter county for thirty-six years. With a Republican majority of seven .hundred against him he was elected by twenty-four votes* and his campaign was the most remarkable ever made in that, parfrof the State. "I didn't want .the confounded-;oft fice," said ML-. Kern last night, "but the people insisted, and bees I.am., : I told them that I wouldn't, come to Indianapolis to represent the- Democratic or Republican party, but- I would vote and work for the interests of the people and let politics goto thunder. I told them I didn't cart whether they elected me or not,-but when I got started I went in to win. "In my public meetings, and I held lots of them, I took for my text the interview with ex-Attorney General Baldwin, printed in The Indianapolis News, and I tell you it was mighty- good campaign matter, for it was all plain fact and solid common sense. I adapted myself to the localities in which I spoke. If I talked in a church, I took an additional text from the Bible, and in school-houses I' had school-books. I did not make any political speeches, and often after my meetings people would come to me and ask my politics. The cornstalk story printed in The Indianapolis News a day or so ago ij true, and at all my meeting's I gave the people a chance to ask me any question, and, luckily, I wasn't stumped." "Have you any bills that .you .will introduce at this session?" 1 •'Several. I have already introduced a bill to make two cents a mile the maximum rate of fare on all Indiana railroads. I have prepared an act that will break the one-man power in our jury system. It's hard to keep the dead-beats off the jury, and in our county, as everywhere else, there is a gang o'f professional jurymen hanging after the $2 a day. One of these.chaps, can hang a jury over one day and thus increase the expense a great deal. I want nine men out of the twelve to decide the case. It will be a great deal harder to put three dead beats than one on a jury, and with the power vested in nine men results will be arrived at quicker, aad the expense will be much lighter. The grand iury I am in favor of abolishing entirely. It is of no use or benefit, except a costly toy. Let all offences be filed on affidavit. 1 " P. I. B, A.

V;i Our stores are crowded with almost everything that a housekeeper spends mouey\for, and whatever we have we've more of in kinds and quantity then anyone else around here thinks of keeping.
