There was instituted in this city last evening a lodge of the Continental Fraternal Union at Good Templars hall, This improved order which begun its existence last year with National headquarters at Richmond Ind., has on its staff of officers, some of the best men in that city. It pays a sick and accident benefit of $25 per week, from ,§142 to $1000 in permanent disability and the same in death, and the remainder due on the one thousand dollar certificate is paid in six and a half years. This Fraternity which saitakes of the characteristics of the Building- and Loan Association on the one hand, and the Death Benefit Orders on the other, is pronounced by the best actuaries to be a decided improvement on all others in existence. The lodge was instituted by B. Michener Graves, Supreme Chancellor, and begins its career with a membership well versed in fraternal orders, and determined to make this one of the live lodges of Log-ansport. The following officers-were elected: President—J. Q. Sweetser. VicePres.- Robt. M. Johnston. Accountant—Geo. 0. Graves. Sec.—A. F. Hockenbeamer. Adjuster—Elias Winters. Medical Examiner—N. W. Cady.

The legislature met yesterday in Joint session and elected Daniel W. Voorhees United States Senator for the ensuing six years. In the Senate Senator Magee's free gravel road bill received a backset an account of which is given by the Indianapolis News as follows: ,.. • A bill authorizing, county commissioners to "buy toll - roads and make free whenever, in their opinion, it is advisable, was recommended to be indefinitely postponed by the Committee on Roads. This bill was the especial pride nf,Senator Magee, and the proposed summary disposal of it roused .is ire. He said he didn't know why . .e people should vote on the purchase of a road any more than they do on the" building of the bridge. There is-not-a free turnpike in Cass county,' lie. said, and twice the people have voted down a proposition to purchase roads and make them free. The free roads, he thought, are necessary to the public welfare, and' it should not be in the power of a few non-progressive narrow-minded people to defeat them. A good deal of ,persuasive eloquence was expended'on this terrestrial subject. Mr. Gilman said he thought-that under the operation of proposed law, a few men who were nfluential with the commissioners could get a great burden saddled upon be people. The bill was not indefinitely postponed,' but was" ordered •printed and given another lease of life, therefore creating an : expansive smile upon Mr. Magee's mobile features Harrison Towntiliip Items.

The immense increase in the number of patents granted is partly due to the increased facilities afforded by recent legislation. But down to 1S53 the old, absurd method which provoked the satire of Dickens in his "History of a Patent" was allowed to.continue in full force. Mr. Edmunds describes how the application was handed in at the Home Office and sent first to the law officers, then back to the Home (Dffice, then on to the Patent Bill Office, then again to the 'Home Office, then successively to the £ignet Office, the Privy Se,al Office, the Patent Office and the Lord Chancel lor's Office, and the necessary formalities were not even then complete. Coke justified his cumbersome procedure as designed by prudent'.antiquity to the end that nothing might pass the Great .Seal that was inconvenient or against the'law, but its 'chief recommendation was that it afforded a pretext for the enaction of a heavy fee at each of. the above stages. .Underthis, enlightened system a patent for the. United Kingdom cost some-'£500 .in. all. The fees were .greatly reduced in 1S52 and again ,inlSS3.. A. patent' ter the full term of fourteen years may now be obtained at a costof £154 in fees; and this is spread out over the whole term.. The fee for talcing'out';the patent^s only £4, but a renewal fee of £50 .ie.,payable within four years, and a further renewal fee of £100;withiri eight,years, or these fees may be satisfied,by, a'number of annua payments. The advantage of this sys tern is that the initial, cost is compara tively trifling, and that if the invention does not answer the inventor can avoic further expense by'simply letting hi patent lapse.—The Spectator. FORCE OF HABIT. TLe Strange %TJilm of an Old Sailor About Smoking. A well-known physician had been dining with a few professional cronies, and as the cigars were lighted the talk drifted to the tobacco habit—first, in its effect upon the race at large; and then in its peculiar effect upon various individuals. _ "I know a man," said the elder physician, whose income, by the way, runs into five figures, "in fact, he is now in my employ, who is the victim of the strangest whims in regard- to the use of the weed that ever came under my observation. He is a Scotchman, about sixty years old.
