Some few moons since the Journal called attention to the fact that the Logansport Business Hens' Association had utterly failed in the object of its organization and had apparently passed into a condition of inocuous desuetude. The article had the desired effect and the secretary of the association called a meeting of the B. M. A. This meeting was attended by the secretary and one other, since which time not a peep ha.s been heard from the B. M. A, It is-a query in the minds . of many Of our citizens why this association was organized as it has not succeeded, BO far, ingoing anything- to better the condition of the city, nor is it likely, in the existing- condition of affairs, to do anything in the future^ One of the first steps taken by the' association was to have printed at large expense an illustrated book descriptive of the town and its natural advantages. The distribution of these books was placed in the hands of the secretary, who pleading that the association .bad no money to pay for the postage on . the things, allowed the books to waste, n a dark closet, the valuable information ' which an nterested a.nd eager outside public vas panting to absorb and by which aid public would hare greatly profit- d. Those books are still accumulat- ng dust in an out of the way nook of ie secretary's sanctum. A similar hough even more ignoble fate met a, irge bundle of New York World's con- aining a write up of Logansport for hich the association paid $300. hese papers laid around in the -sec- etary's way .until finally they were undled up with a lot of old paper nd consigned to the lag man's pack. So far as has -been publicly given out this is about the extent of the ' operations of the Loo-ansport Business Men's Association, and the profits on either of .these brilliant strokes of enterprise are not yet apparent. Now, where is the LB. M. A. by this time and who of its active _ members remain ? and what effort is being made by the association as a body to do any thing to advance the interests of the city? John F. Milier, general superintendent of the Pennsylvania lines'in the Southwestern system, and several of the ; division superintendents have been in Pittsburg for two or three days in conference over employes' grievances. The Lake Shore people have a large force of graders at work on the cut-off just east of LaPorte, Ind. By con- itructing this cut-off they get rid of some heavy grades, sharp curves, and shorten the distance one-half mile. The length of the new line is eig-h miles. The impi-ovemi-at will cos the company §500,000, but this is no more, it is claimed, than it would have cost to straighten the old line and cut down its grades. Indianapolis Journal: Georgt W Stevens, General Superintendent o the Chesapeake' & Ohio lines, spent yesterday in the city, aud in the evening went with his family to Peru. Mr. Stevens states that the business of the main line is limited only by its equipments. The management supposed that with the large number of new engines.and cars purchased last year they would be able to handle the business of the line for the next two "or three years, but they find that present-equipment falls short of handling the business now offered, and they .will goon he in the market for more locomotives and cars. Their coal traffic has shown the most remarkable increase. Ca*s County Medical Society. ^ The society met in Dr. Bell's office Thursday afternoon with a good attendance. Dr. Powell read a paper on the uses of the uterine curette witlrthe report of a case. , Dr. Bell reported a case where he had used a curette. Dr. Cady reported a case of retained placenta. Dr. Busjahn reported a case of trans- r erse. colon. •;,'• . All of the cases provoked a spirited discussion which lasted until a late hour in. the afternoon. ' Drs., Thomas, Bell and Busjahn were appointed to introduce topics for iscusskm on the next meeting. Adjourned to meet Thursday Feb 27th, 1891. J. Z. POWELL, M. D,, Sec'y. » Merit Win*. We desire to say to our citizens, that for years we have been selling- Dr. King's, Mew Discovery for Consumption, Dr. King's New Life Pills, Bucklen's Arnica Salve andElectric Bitters, and have never handled remedies that sell as well, or that have given sucn universal satisfaction. We do not hesitate to guarantee them every time, and we stand ready to refund the purchase price, if satisfactory results do not follow their use. These remedies have won their great popularity purely n their merits. B. F. Keesling-Drug- Electric Street Car Line. J. T. McNary returned last evening from a business trip East, He visited Mr and Mrs. Chas. Watts at Sewickly, Pa., and went on to New York where he negotiated for the proposed new electric street car line for Logansport. He received assurances while there that the proposed plan could be successfully operated and the matter is now taking a .definite tend. The present management of the Street car line urged by Mr. McNary have had the matter under consideration for some time, aud if the plan is carried out and the electric system adopted important additions will be made to the city's street car service, it being proposed to extend the line to the asylum; to the cemetery and, several radiating- lines in the city. The .double trolley Jsys- tem is the one accepted as preferable to any as it could be operated very, easily here. If this matter developed as it promises to the tintinna'blua- tion of the mule car bells will be a forgotten sound in Logansport. - LEAVE YOUR ORDER. Suits made to order, $15 ux>. AH-wool Pants $3. .

A Saa Death at Craivfordisvllle. One of the saddest affairs in the history of Cravrfordsville' occurred yesterday morning, about 3 o'clock, in '.which. Walter McClure, a bright and --. popular young society man, and the son of D. P. MeClure, a dry-goods merchant, was fatally shot. 'Together 'with JHal-EnszniDger and A. V. Randall, the. latter of Shelbyville, and a • •; student of Wabash college,' they were returning from a dance and were walking along the street, McClure being about half a'-block behind the other tiro. Suddenly Ensminger and Ean- dall hoard ~a cry, and upon looking around they saw their companion reeling- 'toward them, saying . that he was shot. A surgeon was summoned, who pronouced his wound a fatal- one the ball having penetrated near the heart. ' The police" shadowed . the,house from which the bullet came arid toward morning- arrested Charles Coombs, a well digger, who, with his family, occupy the premises. Coombs gave himself up without .trouble, and said that some one had disturbed his sick wife several times during the night, so he took . his target-gun and fired out into the darkness, without aiming at any one. He expressed no regret over the affair,, however, aud as he has never borne the best of reputations it will likely go hard'with him. .Ensmingor and Randall deny that there was any particular disturb- anee, and. Me Jlure. in his ance-mortem statement, .says that the only thing-he ; did was to strike the fence with a loose picket. A Boon to Wives. Having- useu • 'Mother's Friend" I would not be without it.

Last March, Jesse Streit. aged twelve, son of Adam Streit, • .of Seymore, fell from a.building, receiving spinal injuries which confined him to his room for several weeks. Eventually he recovered hit. usual health. Last May his father left for Illinois to engage in work, and the lad was much' distressed over his departure, and on the night of the 28th- of that month he would not go to sleep until his mother promised to wake him .up when.his father came. From that hour until late in June he continued to sleep, and during the interim he swallowed but a few spoonfuls of food. Then he aroused himself, and bis first inquiry was for his father. . Several times during the period he was • supposed to ' be dead but. ... when confined in a coffin he would move and attract the attention of the family. After recovering consciousness he told his people that ha had been to heaven, and that he had look'ed upon his father, at work in Illinois, and he described exactly what his .father did. there and in many other ways surprised, his attendants by the accuracy of his information. After this he continued in fairly good health until last Friday, when he began to suffer from smothering spells, followed by heavy and almost lifeless slumber. 'Frequently his breath is hardly observable, and there ,are indications of death. His parents fear that he will again fall into a long sleep. The case is attracting a great deal of attention from the medical fraternity. A Model Establishment. Yesterday Will Kraut opened for the unshorn, the unshaven and the unwashed public his magnificent new tonsorial parlor and bath rooms on Market street, two doors from Fourth. This is a model establishment in its Hue being one of the most handsomely appointed barber shops in ' the State and reflects great credit on the enterprise of its owner. Mr. Kraut's building is about completed, the second and third floors having some work to'be done yet, and is one of. the finest .business blocks in the city. Mr. Kraut's energy and enterprise are highly commendable and the Journal •wishes him the increased patronage he so richly deserves.
