John Gray's "CORNER" ON NEW GOODS. While everyone is blowing 1 , striking and'trying to push off old unsalable goods on their customers; John Gray lias gone and filled up his store chuck iull of new goods and is selling- them lower than some of the old chesnuts that are being offered elsewhere as great bargains, reason why, ho has no old goods to lose on. Good Goods, good selections careful buying and close prices is .what has given him the cleanest stock in the State. them through. If the great State of Indiana has no influence at Washington it is time we received official notice of it. THE Journal this morning 1 furnishes some strong facts in favor of the Assembly Park plan which ought to settle the question n,s to which plan all the citizens should give their earnest support. Log-ansport needs the park and can have it. Let the good work go on. BAB'S BRIGHT BABBLE. Jfetv FadH and Jt'oollfili Foible* FuNhloiiable AVonicn. FINE PERFUMES •:-: AT :-: DISCUSSION has already been commenced on the subject of the vacancy in the Cabinet. Congressman McKln- ley seems to receive the strongest popular indorsement, and there would perhaps be little doubt about his ambition and political usefulness did noi lie in another direction.

There are said to be three hundred million pigeon-holes . at Washington. That is probably why so many petitions are never heard from. The chief inspector of pigeon holes has.not got around to them yet. We very much fear that: the Logan sport public building bill has been pigeon holed. Just who is the chief dispenser of postoffice Jbuildlngs at the national capital is a j/tter that has been kept from the ^public. A noticeable connection be• tween buildings granted and votss obtained for an administration meas- .ure had. existed'under past administra^ tiers. . Kecaliitrant congressmen »re -most successful in get ting ..postoffice - buildings Nof- -withstanding this fact "it is wrong •for a President to intimate that he 'wants any' public building passed." From' these facts the information is derived that the President is and is not the dispenser of buildings. As ho is, not it willnotbe disrespectful to call' attention to some of the eccentricities of the mighty hand that ..pours forth a jflood of buildings among the States. As he is this humble statement may call attention to our needs. To preface, however, it must not be inferred that our postofSce has been ejected for non-payment of rent. It is Ijnder coyer which leaks and over water thafc smells—both contrary- to the peace and dignity of the United .States, Two,. Indiana Congressmen of ability arid influence have labored for public buildings, Congressman Tom Browne, who has served so many years in Congress from the Richmond district, and Congressman Owen.They are two of the threeRepub- licah congressman granted by j,he diminutive grace of the Democratic party in Indiana. Shocked at this liberality in the' last, gerrymander' only-two have been granted under the new apportionment, but this is foreign to the present discussion. In In. • diana a public building hu been granted for Madison, to a Democratic congressman; for South ' Bend, to a Democratic congressman, and for Lafayette. Madison has about itsn thousand inhabitants, less than it .had ten years • ago. Lafayette and * South Bend are large enough to sport public buildings:-: Logansport and Richmond, of about the same average population, are large enough.but have not b'ecome as yet beneficiaries. By anology these two cities are entitled to recognition, by all rules of •Dolitics, South Bend and Madison tavti been wrongfully substituted. It is not too late to correct the mis.-, take and to complete Indiana's quota. We insist that Speaker Reed shalLsus- pend the rules, apply cloture and put Mr. Mills, of Texas, in the 'hostile wMle s these two hills .are passing the ' House, and that the President shall jpull of his coatandgo § downand lobby rwmm WITH the. exception of Ingalls, every Republican Senator who voted to sidetrack the Force bill has been re-elected. They are Camersoo, Teller, Stanford and Jones. The terms of Senators Wolcolt, Stewart and Washburne have not yet expired, but they will be re-elected. The people are opposed to the Force bill.—Pharos. They were re-elected before they voted with the Democrats and that fact takes all the- force out of the above statement. The Pennsylvania legislature by .a unanimous Republican vote requested Senator Camerson to r'ecousider'his vote which shows how the people favor fair election. Pay Vp. The supreme court of Indiana has decided that .church subscriptions given on Sunday are to be considered legal obligations. The question was' made the issue in a suit filed in the lower court by the 'trustees of a Baptist church in Indianapolis against Thorr-ds Watson, who subscribed lo tho church building fund and then refused to pay, claiming that a debt incurred on Sunday could not be collected.— South Bend Post. pecial NEW YOKK. Jan. 2(j. It is not exactly the proper quota-' tion, but it is true, that "all things come to her who knoweth how to walk," and by knowing how to walk, I mean to go out in all sorts and conditions of weather, and keep your eyes open wide, so that you see everything, from the shop windows to the pretty girls,'from the sunshine to the deal- blue sky, and you' can get absolutely intoxicated with the fresh air. HOW OUR WOMEN WALK. Now, the material side of knowing hovv to walk is unknown to the New York woman. When she goes in for stately she takes two long steps and three short one?, and when she is in a hurry she trots. A woman trotting, especially if she is waving a muff to stop a street car, is much more ridiculous ihan the woman who is doing an amature tobogganing down a high stoop, and she ought to realize this, and cease her frantic rush. A French woman can hasten and you are never conscious of anything ridiculous in her walk, THE BEST WALKEKS IN THIS ' COUNTKV are southern women, who from natural indolence put the trot down with ease, and are taught early in life that they must land first on their toes, and not 'on their heels. The Western woman walks with emphasis, as if she meant to get there, and, usually, I think she does. The Philadelphia woman has a little bit of an inclination to mince, and an occasioned startled air about her, as if sue were afraid of being quick in . her movements. To walk well, have a comfortable shoe, that fits'the foot, with a medium high heel, always particularly vain of, them, nor anxious to introduce them to the public at large. Several times millionaires may not object>to having thieves and liars, and forgers, and men who die on the wrong end of the rope among their progenitors, but plain, ordinary, every-day people have an idea that they would rather their "patients" far back should be more or less respectable, persumably more. A bright woman with no blue blood to speak of, has solved the ancestral picture fashion in a very amusing way. She herself is a very .beautiful woman, and she earned her living by her needle and her brush; that is, .doing very fine embroidery for various decorative societies, and by painting menus and cards for the large shops. A man wose riches are great and whose blood is most cerulean fell in love with her, and made her his wife. This family had a slight inclination to scoi-W not because she had owned her own living—thank God, that is a credit to a w oman nowadays—but because she hadn't come of gentle folk. She never seemed to know this—had the tact to ignore it in a most beautiful manner. At her first afternoon Highest of all in Leavening Power.—¥. S.

One of the TVorld's Greatest Painters Passes Away. PAP.IS, Jan. 31. —Jean Louis Ernest Meissonier, the painter, who has been ill for several days, has just died in this city. He was born in Lyons in 1812. [Jean Louis Ernest Meissonier, the most famous ol tho French genre painters, was born in 1815 at Lyons, where his father was a small tradesman. His work is notable for bis marvelous finish and extraordinary attention to detail, which makes it seem as though each stroke ivere executed with the aid of a microscope. His pictures won him honors in Paris while he was still a young man. la 18S5 bs received the salon gold •medal. and ' In 1307 he ,-was given the decoration of tba Legion ol Honor. These works of genius are dainty In size, the canvases seldom being larger than eight by ten or fifteen Inches. The prices they brought, however, were huge. A, T. Stewart paid $60,000 for "1SOS," which was one of the artist's larger works. Other famous paintings b^ Meissonier are "The Header." "The Smoker." "The Emperor of Solferino," and "A Charge of Cavalry." The painter's fondness for military subjects is somewhat explained by the fact that he was a soldier In the Italian campaign and fought, with the rank of Colonel, In the Franco-Prussian war. J and always put the toes down first;this gives good .carriage, throws the hips in their proper position, intensifies the springy movement and makes the man passing by you very conscious of the fact that you are well shaped about the shoulders, and have a graceful, curve from the waist down. A woman who walks well is a pleasure to look, at, and every man who knows her feels himself honored by being seen with her.

She had Cleopatra, Catherine of Kussia, Lady Hamilton, the three beautiful Gunnings, Mrs, Fitzgerald, Nell Gwyne, Adelaide Neilson, Lady Lonsdale, Lady Dudley, Mrs, Langtry, and as the latest, the variety actress Belle Bilton—-Lady Dunlo. Everybody was delighted, everybody confessed to her wit, and I don't think even from the old frumps in the DESTROYED BY FIRE. Phillips & Stein's Crockery House at Rich inoud, Va.,- Burned. RICHMOND, Va., Jan, 31.—Phillips <L Stein's large crockery house on Main street, opposite the post-office, was destroyed byfire .Friday night. The building 1 and stock .were completely wrecked. The loss is placed at §75,000. At one ti»e the fire threatened the destruc;- tion of trie whole block. Phillips & Stein estimate their loss at about,S40,- 000, insured for about 533,000.

Kan., Jan. 31. — Eepoj-ts from McPlierson, Marion and Saline counties say that hog cholera is spreading 1 with the most severity known in •years. Hundreds of animals are dying daily on account of .the warm, damp Montana's. Speaker Dead, HBLESA, Moufc, Jan, 31,—The .Legislature has adjourned till Tuesday as a mark of respect to the memory of the, late Speaker A. C. Witter! who has just died at .Dillon. Committee's -'from' the House and Senate -'will attend the funeral. hope that you may walk through-life beside him who .loves you with all the intensity of his heart. It's very touching. But I think the most touched girl in JSFew York was one who got a pair of white satin slippers, and on the toe of each, instead of a buckle, was a beautiful diamond butterfly, that might be used as abroach or a hair ornament when it was not doing duty on the slipper. I consider those slippers the first I hare ever seen for anybody putting their feet on the mantel shelf: but the funny part of it is that the young man believed his own darling wore a No. 1, whereas she found it difficult to . get into No. *. She couldn't change the slippers for she.couldn't find out where they came from, but she -bought herself a pair exactly like them, removed'ihe butterflies, and dances around and over that young man's heart with perfect unconcern. SMALL FORTUNES IN SMALL SLIPPERS. Another pretty pair of slippers sent lo a fiancee were of gold brocade.with buckles glittering with topaz. These were to be worn at a dinner .where the engagement was announced, and. the gown with them was one of deep yellow chiffod. The man who sent these slippers will certainly make a good husband, for with them came a lovely yellow gauze fan on tortoise shell sticks with a monogram wrought out in topaz, a pair of, pale yellow gloves that reached far up over the arm, while very far down in the toe of each slipper was a pale yellow silk stocking. These all came together with a note from him, and later in the day, without any card, presumably not from bim, arrived a box in which were neased a pair of garters,, one black, the other yellow, the buckles set with iopaz.and on one was the monogram of the wearer—that was on the black garter—while on the yellow was en- graven; "Luck comes through me." The girl was so. happy that she could riot tell whether it came from the garter or from the man who sent it; but of course she knew he did, and she in- .ends to thank him in the prettiest way possible—affer her marriage. A NEW TOKEC WOMAN'S ANCESTOKS. Everybody can't 'have ancestors— hat is, of course, everybody does have ancestors, but they are not . family she will ever have'another word aDOut who her ancestors were. BERNHAKDT'S "CLEOPATRA" A FAILURE. Apropos of beautiful women, Cleopatra of Madame Bernhardt has been descVibed to me by a man who is a good critic, and who is an ar- denl admirer of Sarah. He says it is a failure, and a most dire one. and what do you think he ascribes the failure to? That Sarah is too fat. It's a little curious, but I don't doubt it, for the last time she was here she had increased in flesh, and everybody knows that the women of her. race have a decided tendency to fat as they grow old. "The Cleopatra of Mrs. •Langtry is said to be a beautiful one, although it is an English one; the stage-setting is said to be belter than that in Paris, although that shown by Fanny Davenport here far surpassed both of the others. EVEJtr BEAUTIFUL WOMAN seems to have a desire to play Cleopatra, and as nobody believes that Cleopatra gained her sway solely by her beauty, it is odd that they do not realize what an enormous task they are undertaking. To depict the woman who was as subtle as the first serpent, -.who could use each charm to its best advantage, and who was as cruel as the coldest steel, while as loving as the . hottest fire, does not seem difficult to them. The rage for representing Juliet seems to have subsided, and.every amateur wants to picture the woman who. had Cesar's and Marc Antony's love as well as the adoration of the Egyptian populace. They had better remain content with Juliet, for, after all. most of us havo endured such agonies in seeing- the sweet maid done by amateurs that we no longer mind the dose. A COMING NEW money than he has. Nobody ever makes a mistake in writing on plain white paper that folds once. For myself I have a liking for large-sized sheets, but the little billets to-day are sent on very small ones. CHARACTER TOLD IN STATIONERY. It isn't so much, after all, what the paper is as what the envelope contains, though you almost know before you open it. That old-fashioned-looking envelope, directed in a running Italian hand such as was taught in the schools forty years ago, comes from somebody's mother; you can almost see the signature, which is only "your devoted mother." That pale gray letter, redolent of- violet, closely sealed with white wax, and having ' 'immediate" written far up in one corner, is from sombody's sweetheart, and it signed "Ever faith- fully'thine o.wn true love." • That business envelope with the name and address of "John Brown. Lawyer,", crossed over with ink, is from a wife to her husband: she is using one of his business envelopes, and the letter ends, "Always your affectionate wife," and below that is a .postscript which tells that baby has put a kiss in the corner. That ' severe-looking envelope, with the name of a collection, agency on it, is some young man's tailor bill; poor chap, probably his worst fault was vanity, but he will have -to pay the piper now. That legal-looking envelope is from a lawyer to his client, announcing that a case was lost. That square little thing, with its gold cipher and its pointed handwriting is the acceptance that a pretty girl has given to a dance. That black-bordered envelope is from somebody who has written a letter of thanks for a word of condolence that came in a time of trouble. And that square white envelope, with'- a cipher in gold and the motto '"Litera scripta manet," that announcement that "what I write I mean," ij from BAB. UoiaC factory, and said lie would divide the profits for next year's work with • his employes, he retaining- 28 per cent, of the net profit, and on the 29tli of January, 1892. would give 72 per cent., .to the managing- board to :•- divide among them in three classes. The- first class to consist of those who are moral, faithful and industrious, and have been in continuous • employment since January 29, 18S7. The second, class is to consist of employes who are moral, faithful and industrious, find, have been in continuous employment since January 29,1891., The- third class is to consist of employes whose habits are not moral, but who are faithful and industrious in discharging- their duties. . .

Steps will be -.taken at once to perfect, the arrangement. :: . FROM HOOSIEEDOM. Interesting News for Indiana Readers—Legislative Doings. ACTRE S3. It is announced that Elsie de Wolfe is going on the stage— professionally, I mean. What courage some women have! She is a tolerably good amateur, she is not good-looking- and she is not young, and yet she is brave enough to face an. audience who are expected to pay for, their appreciation,, or lack of it, of. her attempt to try it on them. Certainly the American woman' has a beautiful belief in the patience of the American people, but we have had a little bit too much ol this, and even a worm will tarn at last, and the down-trodden American, when it does turn, in a body, turns for good. . THE NEW KIND OF FEMININE STATIONERY. What kind of paper do you use? The very latest is card-like in shape, being the ordinary note size, but not doubled.. It is tolerably stiff, and a pale gray, and your cipher must be wrought in gold at the top oiit, while your, address is in gold at the foot of the sheet. This is written on with white ink, and in the largest handwriting imaginable. The sheet goes into the envelope without folding, and when- the. letter comes to you it looks like an official document. A messenger, boy can't got it into bis pocket, so he usually marks it with hand decorations. The postman can't strap it in with his other letters, so he carries it by itself, and considers you a great swell to get it, and the person who wrote ..it somebody with more The Legislature. oi.TS, Ind., Jan. 31.—The Senate and House on Friday unanimously adopted resolutions of tribute to William Windom. the late Secretary of the Treasury. A bill was passed in the Senate which makes it unlawful for a person to sink a gas well within COO feet of the land of another. It is draxva to protect the farmers from wells sunk to draw the gas which lies under their land. The bill abolishing 1 the State Board of Agriculture was ordered engrossed. In the House a bill prohibiting the killing- of wild ducks, except on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of each week, was also ordered'en- grossed. . The farmer and labor Representatives in the General Assembly have entered into a compact to get reform measures through the Legislature. A memorial setting 1 forth their demands: was on Friday presented to the Senate .by. Senator Mount. They want official salaries reduced and fees abolished, and they want a bill on the subject to go into effect at once.. They demand also, a lower rate of interest. The: Indiana State Board of Agriculture is to be reorganized. It has been self-perpetuating- heretofore and has made itself so unpopular that the Legislature has determined to reorganize it on a new plan, requiring that the members shall be chosen from the industrial and commercial organizations in the State. The initial steps in the matter were taken in-both houses Friday. The committees on railroads and the committees on corporations of the two houses of the General Assembly are jointly preparing a bill that will make a radical change in. the manner of raising revenue. It is proposed to increase the tax on corporations alone, s-' that the revenue fi-om this source will aggregate 83.000,000 annually, and - to establish a board of railroad commissioners, to be appointed by the Governor, and State officers, who shall have a general supervision over all the roads doing business in. Indiana. The . railroads now pay taxes on a value of about 807,000,000, while they are bonded, according to "Poor's Manual," at about $400,000,000. The committees unanimously -agree that the State is thus getting practically nothing from this source, a'nd the tax will be' largely increased. BEECHAM'S PILLS (THE 6REAT ENGLIIH REMEDY.)
