Tlic Plans .Look Well ou Paper; Speed the Day AVJicn Tlicy May be Carried Into Effect. At the adjourned session of the city council last night, City Civil Engineer Osmer submitted to the council the exhaustive plans for Logansport's proposed system of sewage prepared by the .celebrated sanitary engine'er Rudolph Herring of New York. .Mr. Osmer explained the plans to the members and all examined the same attentively. The chart is ve'-y comprehensive in its outlines and shows at a glance the extent of the proposed improvement while the profile of the main sewers gives a clear idea of that part of the system. After a discussion of the plans the same were adopted and the bill of $300 for Mr. Herring's services was ordered paid. The entire plan is as intricate as it is complete and will afford effectual sewerage facilities for every part of the city. The main points are herewith noted. The main sewers are to be planned co run in a direction parallel to the rivers, discharging at the mouth of Eel river, and also a main .running through Brown street. Heath street and west street in Johnson's addition, also a main on Thirteenth and the alley between 16th and 17th streets to the Wabash river. All the sewage is taken to points below the mouth of •Eel river. Storm water overflows or outlets are provided at several points along the rivers to relieve the sewers in excessive rains. The city is divided into districts so that any part of the plan can "be taken up and constructed without interfering with the system. The alleys are generally used instead of the streets. A table submitted with the report shows that the heaviest rain fall known to fall in a given time in this locality fell here on June 7,1379—when 3.25 inches fell in thirty minutes, being at the rate of seven inches per hour. This plan is veryQeomplete, yet there remains a great deal of work for the city engineer in matter of details, specifications, etc. The plans were made from surveys made by Civil En- A telegram from Puchmond last evening stated that J. A, Wood had been found guilty of the murder of J. T.'Blount, and the jury fixed his punishment at imprisonment in the penitentiary for the period of twenty-one years.

Last night at the Broaivay rink was witnessed one of the finest games of polo ever played in this city, between the Muncie "Royal Kid" and. Logansport's old league team. The game was called promptly at 9 o'clock and after 1 minute and 80 seconds of hard playing, Davidson of the home team made the first goal, tho second was made by Boice of the home team in 4 minutes and 30 seconds; the third by Boice in 4 minutes. The last two goals were made by Beeson of the Muncie team in 7J minutes. This was undoubtedly a great gaxe, Beeson, of the • 'Royal Kid" team did some very fine playing, as did Kirk. Stitt, of the home team, is without doubt the best polo. player in the State, while Davidson and Boice will be heard from some day, if their present good work is kept up. Mr. Corder, the'manager of the rink, is well up with the times and will have this same team play another game to-night. ONE TOUCH OF NATURE. Tlie Slotlier AViis Journeying to Her Tomb. AH the passengers- but two in the slepper had doxed off., The exceptions were a young- man and a baby. • } The former was willing-to follow the example of the majority, Viit the latter objected in. a loud, voice. Its, cries awoke some of tlie others und^somc pretty strong language was hoai-3. The young man got out of his berth • and carried the baby up and down the car, trying to soothe it. But the baby was fretful and its voice would not be stilled. Finally a. gray-headed man, who was evidently an- old traveller, stuck his head out from behind the curtains and called to the young- man in a sharp voice: ''See here, sir, why don't you take child to its mother? She will be able fce' handle it much better than you.. It evidently wants its mother." '•Yes, that's it." echoed other iritated passengers. The young man continued to pace np and down for a moment, and then said in a quiet, strained voice: '•Its mother is in the baggage ear." There was an instantaneous hush. The gray-headed man stuck his head out into the aisle. "Let me take it awhile,", he said, softly, "perhaps I can quiet it. "— Living Issues. SPANISH HOSPITALITY. Frank Stapleton at San Francisco.

Now that the initial steps have been taken in this exceedingly important direction we -will all hope for a speedy fulfillment of the plans. In the present financial condition of the city it is hopeless to think of constructing- the entire system at once, as such _an undertaking would call for an expenditure of not less than $800,00,0, but with these perfect plans to work on a little strip of sewer put in here or there as needed until the time will come when 'the eutire Kobt, Smith was yesterday tried in Squire Smith's court on the charge of stealing chickens. He was adjudged guilty and bound over to wait the aouon of the circuit court in the sum of $50, which not being able to secure, he was sent to jail to rejoin his comrade Reeder who guilty plead to the same charge the day before. James McElhaney tried his first case before a court as attorney for the defendant and although he worked hard the Squire was compelled to inform him that it was no use, the case was a clear one and that his client would have to go- ' Life I« Mlnery To thousands or people who have the taint of scrofula in their blood.

California, and it was considered a grievous .offense even for a strang-er, much more for a friend, to pass by a ranch without stopping. Fresh horses were always furnished, and in many cases on record when strangers appeared to need financial help a pile of uncounted silver was left in the sleeping apartment, and they were given to \m- derstancl that they were to take all they ne.eded. • This money was covered with a. cloth, and it was a point of honor not to count it beforehand nor afterward. It was "guest silver," and the custom continued until its abuse by travelers compelled the native Californians to abandon it. Among themselves no one was ever allowed to suffer or struggle for lack of help. The late Dr. Nicholas Den, of Santa Barbara, who married into the Ortega family, once needed money to carry through a speculation, and thought of going to Los Angeles to borrow it. Old Father Narciso, bearing of the mat; ter, sent his Indian boy to him with a "cora," or four-gallon itule basket, full of gold, and the message that he ought to come to his'priest whenever lie needed help.—Century. Tin-Restful JBarber Chair. •"There is only one time during a busy day." said the philosopher, "when a man really enjoys complete rest. The busy merchant, lawyer or editor wastes no time over his lunch, and is thinking all the time lie eats of what work he has to attend to when he returns to his office: Hut let that same man get into tlie barbers chair, and the turmoil in his brain ceases instantly. It is as if the passing of the brush over his face drew a curtain between him and his toil. His eyelids close slowly, and a delicious feeling of complete indifference to cai-e replaces his former anxious thoughts. Every succeeding moment increases his feeling of ease and rest, and when the bay rum sets the nerves in the skin tingling he feels like a new man. His work during- tlie. next hour seems lighter than sij any other time, and the refreshing effect passes off slowly. I would rather go without lunch than miss my half hour in the barber's chair." —X.

It is on record in medical literature that in tlie year 1531 a poor old man, residing in Tarentum, near Naples, was the subject of a marvelous change when at the age of nearly .ninety years. His skin peeled off and a new and soft skin supplied its place; his muscles again became strong and plump; the wrinkles disappeared from his face, and the white hairs from, his head; black, curly hair grew on his head again, and his complexion became fresh and youthful. Sixty years .later he again became decrepit with a second old age, and died after passing liis one hundred and sixtieth year. Abraham's Birthplacr. Not far from Aleppo is situated the little village of Orfah (the ancient Or of the Chaldees), which is of great historical interest, it having been the birthplace of the patriarch Abraham. The inhabitants, mostly Arabs and Jews, still point out a small building lying outside the. town which they declare to be the place where Abraham first saw the_ light. It is known among them as "the IJOHSP <•>* the friend of God." 1'aliitlng It Red. "Many stories have been told, each claiming to give the origin of the expression 'painting it red,' and to swell the list I will tell another," said a'river captain to a St. Louis reporter the other day. "I think mine is -the right one. Away back in the '50s racing was the most exciting feature of river life, and whenever an opportunity was given for the sport every man on the boats would prepare for the contest as.if their lives depended upoii the result. .

Then .the. co'al would be heaped on till, the furnaces glowed, like suns, aiid their crimson glare could be seenifor miles ; around on the darkriver. Then: 'paint it red' grew to.mean.simply having a good time, either on water or land, with us' river men. The pet expression spread quickly, until .now you see what- it is—almost-universal.
