The importance of the event to Indiana and to her brave soldiers cam hardly be over-estimated. Charles G..

California art often much less than the amount pivci in the local newspapers. lie suys "Quite a number of years" experience iri collecting- data of thia ch.'uroctcr .for the government and state, in the census UnJted States frcolog-ic;!! survey, Unitcsc States mint nnd state raining hurcai. liavc shown, the utter unreliability o, ordinary estimates on this subject mado by those with no faciliUos for obtain ing- them. Tlio tendency to exaggerate tho yield of certain mines and certain localities Is common. Those wliointilsc Uic estimates have no means of check' ing duplication n.nd nxe n.pt. to accept herLrsay or rumor ;is'f;ict. "Nor n-rc wo dcponc'd.'jit on the San PraU'tisco mint alone, sinci- we are enabled (o learn how mucJi bullion from California ores rctioliCH the mints at DoBVcr ami elsewhere, .-I.IH) Jiow much arc tho values of Ihc Califoi-jiin. ores (j'oatjfd ;>t the smcliins 1 wor);s at Kvcivit and Tacoina, \Va&h,, al/Kl Paso nncl nt IJio smelters of Utah nnd Colorado. "A still roorc important point is that while the larger mining companies., which arc conducting; their operations ns n private business, are willing- to maltc confidential returns to the mint r.uthorities, they lire, seldom -willing to con/ido in Uie local reporter or editor. to v.-hojn tlio figures :ire, of coarse, of DO use unless he is permitted 1o publish them. "The bulk of the returns received at the mint ,iro directly from the. producers themselves, notably in the case" of large producers. As regards Chinese, roj-tugncsc. Italians and other foreign minors who operate on a small seaJc, estimates must ba made, for they never answer letters. Such estimates as are necessary are obtained by the min.t from local bankers, g-old-dufit,buy- ers, merchants, postmasters, express agents nnd prominent miners, which involves a la.rgo list of . correspondents. In such coses, of course, duplications must bo guarded against, and this re-, quires some .-judgment. But surely such' data would be apt to be more correctly compiled, coming oil i-nto the hands of one man with some experience in the matter and with no other duty to .per* 1 form, than they would be if p-atbered by sorno dozens of people in diiTcrejit" localities, no one knowing- what the other had. "It has been my experience tbflt, with 1 few exceptions, where estimates of the product of mines have been made by 'outsiders' they 'exceed naterinlly the cxae.t figures obtained from IJic mine owners thr.insehx's. We arc enabled to tell pretty well the increase or decrease of gold product by the daily receipts oi dust and bullion at the mint. 'Wel;now, for instance, that in Ayril there was about $10.000 more received than in Slnreli. There'are many other ways of obtain!npr the data, iic-t neccssai-y to n.

IT ; cxafr8'eratiaii» to any great degree were jmado they would be disproved in the raid, .by the sum totals of receipts at United States assay offices, smelling.'and reduction works, added to the usual .percentages for precious metals used in lite arts. While it cannot be maintained tivat our lables'.'of bullion product for each year are absolutely correct, aaid show the precise yield to n dollar, they are reasonably BO at least, ;and doubtless much more accurate •than the estimates made by those who iare interested in one locality only, and have not the official prcstig-c of g-overn- nient 5.i,ncion in making- inquiries." FOOT IN ITS MOUTH. On« "f Perry Rank's Homes Found In » Curlouit Predicament Employes of Perry Hank, the liveryman, heard a terrific commotion the other afternoon in one oC tJic stalls at th? stable and rushed in to see what had happened. They found one of the beat horses owned by Mr. Hank lying on its side with its legs a.nd bead in a. seemingly inextricable tangle. At first they thought the horse was having a fit, but upon investigation, wbra the 'animal's struggles exhausted its strength, they foivr.d that one oC the hind- feet was stuck in the; horse's mouth. How it got there none could explain, and bow to get it out seemed an insurmountable problcra. Finally ropes nnd pulleys were rigged up and tho hoof nnd mouth reluctantly parted company. In tbo operation one tooth was knocked loose and the horse's tongue was lacerated. Ko horseman in tho vicinity ever heard of a similar circumstance. Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U.

Salplinrlc Aclil TurncU Tnto tho Jilverfty Strawbonrd Mills. Ecports of many people being- taken j!I in the; jiorth part of Indianapolis precipitated a panic in the. police department.. At ton o'clock, patrolmen were started outon a rush over the city, notifying 1 residents not to use water furnished by the waterworks company. Physicians hove been colled to attend many cases of sickness, whcre.the symptoms resembled acid poisoning. Tbir; » believed to bo another result 1 of the turning into the river at ?Coblcsvillc o* a small lake of sulphuric acid a.nd refuse. from the strawboard works, which dllcd a.;l the fish. The physicians say this is tlie'begin- ing of an epidemic which may lead to ••errible results. Lock. At Timaru, New South Wales, two women quarreled about a bucket of vater, and from words came to blows. \fter a few minutes both women fell -o the ground with their hands twisted n each other's hair. They lay thus grappling together for about a quarter of an jour, watehed by screaming women .nd children. A man then came up .nd tried to separate them, but with- ii t result, until he brought a claw- ammer, by using the claws of which IB unlocked the women's hands and made them let go.

Joseph Stilltz was released from th<» prison south ivt .TcfUarsonviJle, Ind., t/he other day after completing a Ten-years' sentence. The storr of his life, and the circumstances connected \vH«i the crime which placed him beh/ml prison bars is a strange one. Stulte was met upon hisrcloaseby his former wile and her fo- t-her, who spent a fortune in convicting him and .iftcnviiril liod the niarriMjrf: of Stultx and his daughter nnnr.Hed. Both now grcctfJ him •« ith open arms. Nearly ten years ngo Joe Stultz was a lending member of Louisville society and a member of the Louisville leg-io-.). He became acquainted with pretty Carrie AsHey, daughter ot \Yillin.m Ashley, (i member of a. wealthy tailoring firm of Louisville., and the husband of a sister of Stultz. Through his relationship St-ulU hnil an excellent opportunity for love-making and he wooed and won Miss Ashk-y and Miey eloped to Xew Albany and were married by Rev. Cli.-irles Jlutcliinson. of the Third Presbyterian church. Docic Hunt, a well- known younp 1 man, made the affidavit as to Miss Ashley's uge. As soon as the news reached Mr. Ashley he went to New Albany and caused wan-ants to be issued for both Hunt, and Stultz, charging: them with perjury an 1 subornation of perjury, respectively, and so great was his anger that Jfr. Ash- Joy gave up his business and devoted himself to the punishment of the men who had taken his daughter away. Mrs.. Stultz, nee Asliley, who had before seemingly been infatuated with her husband, also joined with her father in the prosecution. Before the trial Stultz and Hunt attempted to escape from jail, but were recaptured. The. trio] was .long and bitterly contested,'but Hunt was convicted and sentenced to seven years' imprisonment and Stultz to ten years. Soon after Mr. Ashley had the marriage of his daughter and Stultz annulled. As time passed ' Mr. Ashley lost his possessions arid he became a comparatively poor man, and the feelings which he and his daughter entertained for Stultz became softened. Some time ago they began circulating petitions for Stultz' pardon. Mr. Ashley making- several unsuccessful trips to Indianapolis in his behalf. Stultz proved to be an-exemplary convict, and his good time shortened his term aJmost two years. Immediately following his j-eloasc Mr. Stultz and his former wifo were reunited in marriage/ Dr. Hutchinson again officiating. ings where repairs are in progress, -j-fle body was in a cramped position, as if the i::tt .was trying to come bnc-k. but was caught iu the act and held fast by the walls.

When Found In the riumaa Species It Eft (t Form of Atavism. Among uli old world apes the teeth are the chief weapons for defense against natural foes and for combats for mates or for tribal supremacy, says Blackwood's Magazine. The canines are in most cases enormously developed, insomuch that ill-informed naturalists have suggested that a 'near relationship must exist between the primates and the carnivora. As ;i matter of fact these formidable iccth have nothing to do with alimentation, but are as purely weapons of war as arc the bayonet and the Maxim gun. In practically every einerg-cnc? demanding iinnsunl energy, obstinacy and courage, they come into play. In every conflict with '.he world, the flesh and the devil—as such things are inderstood In pithecoid society—tho temporal and masseter muscles are the chief arbiters of war. To become a great and powerful anthropoid, itisab- sohitcly and brutally necessary to have n large and strong jaw, to give firm attachment to tire teeth and good leverage to the muscles. That fnr an immense, epoch our prehuman ancestors achieved success in life in like manner is as clear as the print of "Ifaga" to those who have learned to read nature's handwriting. Since those days of true Arcadian simplicity our life has become bewilderingly complex, and our methods for settling social difficulties have changed generally for the better. But here, ns in w many other instances, the habits of o past age have left an indelible impress on the nervous system.

Wagon load after wag-on load of znaJl matter was takcin from the Cripple Creek (Col.) post office the other afternoon to the city dump, where an .attempt was iDadc by the postmaster's assistants to burn it. Whnt was not .consniaed was covered witJi offal. When it became known to the public that a wholesale destruction of mails was g-oing on, many citiz/cns went out to the dump and saved some of their mail. In nearly every instance the maJl thrown away was plainly addressed, the box number appearing- in full view. Mail was there for some of tbo most prominent citizens of Uic camp. One of the worst features of tho affair is the f;ict tha.t rncil addressed to other places was destroyed. AVhen Postmaster Eose was called upon for au explanation he said the burningwns done on the authority of the postoifico inspector. The postmaster acknowledged that some mail was destroyed which ought Sot to have been. Reputable citizens say that they pay into the post office at certain intervals a stipulated sum of money for the privilege of receiving mail in advance of other people who do not pay extra. An official investig-a- tion will be asked for. of a Hobb«r IE Kalno tbo Wind. Mr. Moft'at is the Denver banker who was robbed of $21,000 In his private office one day at noon, says the Pittsburgh Dispatch.. The robber held a revolver in one hand and a bottle of nitroglycerine in the other. He requested Mr. Moflat to write a check for $21,000 under penalty of being shot and of having his bank building-wrecked by the explosive in the botUe. Mr. Moffat is reputed to be worth os many millions as tho number of thousands demanded by the robber. I3e wrote the check. The robber said he would hate to trouble Mr. Moffat to go with him into, the paying- teller's cage and produce tie cosh; he would take $BO,000 in large bills, and 53,000 in gold. "If you say one word, or indicate by a look ormotion that any thins is wrong, 1 will shoot you and then blow up the bank." Saying which the robber threw a light overcoat over his arm concealing- tie revolver he held in his hand, nccom- pnnicd the bank president into the teller's cage, rcc&ivcd the money and returned with Mr, Moffat to tie private office. He then repeated his threat to kill the banker and blow up the building if an alarm should be given before he (the robber) was safely outside the bank. He made, his escape and has not been captured., The robber's overcoat, revolver und bottle were found in a doorway near the bank building. The revolver was loaded, but a chemical analysis of the contents of the bottle revealed the fact, that the fluid was not nitroglycerine but sweet oil. A THRILLING FEAT. CURFEW FOR ST. LOUIS.
