Will Griner is a new addition to the efficient force at. Kraut's new barber ,shop, ; Caaden Expositor: Mr. . Earl ; Stewart's little, daughter of Logansport . :is visiting relatives in Camden this week. Mrs. J. W. Warner returned to her home in JElwood yesterday, after a pleasant visit with her son. Alf. L. Anderson and wife. Notwithstanding the severe injuries received by a fall from a moving train at Kokomo. a week or more ago, Will Stewart has been ' 'on the road" all •week selling goods. He is not yet entirely recovered from his painful . fall.-:; : Harry Prank, jr. will start for New Orleans to attend the great Mardi Gras festival. ' He will seize the occasion to make a comprehensive trip of the "new south" and his trip of two weeks or mbrp promises to be a very pleasant one. .. • 'Mrs. Catherine Conners died at 5:30 ..p. m. yesterday, aged 70 years, at the .•home of Mrs. Carline, opposite the .Wabash station. Mrs. Connors' death V- 1 was quite sudden, she. having been -'•.-sick but a short time'. - ,The announcement of the funeral willbe madelater- Houses (we have the assurance of its passing the House of Representatives.) Every commercial traveler and every jobber in the country will be directly benefited, and to no one but the Travelers' Protective Association can the credit of the passage of this bill rightfully belong. In season -and out of season they have urged its passage, both in person and by personal letters to.Senators and Representatives. It was the last act of the T. P. A. of the United States, and one of the first acts of the T. P. A. of America, to send delegates to Washington to interview the committee on commerce as well as members of both houses, urging its passage. President McGvew personally interviewed every member of the committee, and did not rest until he had their assurance that the bill should be reported favorably. And still we suppose that when the time comes that the commercial travelers under this amendment will be purchasing thousand mile tickets at.§15, and being granted an allowance of 300 pounds of free baggage, hundreds of them will be propounding the same old chestnut: "What has the T. P. A. done?" We repeat and desire to have it disproved if we are not correct that the T. P. A. is the only organization of commercial travelers that has a national organization, and through its officers and members, taken an active part in securing this much needed legislation, both by personal effort and by authorized committee work.—Fort -Wayne Gazette. Do the members take and read any of the commercial Travelers' papers? We fear not. Of all these purely class papers started within the last few years, only the "National Commercial Traveler" • of Louisville, and the "Traveler's Age" of Philadelphia, have prospered. This is not as i should be. Chairman Pottlitzer- has not only interested himself in securing week ead tickets over the Wabash, but i endeavoring to secure a 1000 mile ticket over the same road, similar to those issued by the Big Four, Monon. and Pennsylvania railroads. Boys, the T. P. A. column has come THE (JOUJKGD J1INSTIIEI.S. •> ••Do you know that a line minstrel show is as a matter of fact, the best of all entertainments." The speaker who was one of a party of gentlemen discussing amusements, in the office of a prominent hotel in this city, continued: -I mean by the best, that you-get more for'your money, and can come nearer having the varied taste of a greai audience suited, than you can by any otbei class of entertainment that I know of. Take a show like Cleveland's colossal colored carnival minstrels, that is to be here Tuesday, night. Now, there is a troupe of artists—not novices, but perfjrmers—all of whom bear the stamp of approval of the most critical audiences. Such a number of players, of their conceed- ed merit, are bound to please,, so great is the variety of their finished work. To the sentimental there is nothing sweeter than the touching ballads of sweet-voiced Minstrel singers. Here you get tetider- ness and pathos. To the humorous, the end-men, with • everything that's funny, make sunshine out of darkness. The comedians in their specialties are 'side splitting,' and the startling prr- ductions' of novelties hold all in admiration. The stage settings used by tLis company are of a magnificence not conceived of by those who have not seen them. To the average person their splendor seems like a dream, and in i-ichness, holds the artistic eye spell-bound. Nothing is too good to be used by this company, -when their reputable manager thinks it will add to the enjoyment and entertainment of his patrons." KEEVES' FAUST. Of ihe opera bouffe company to bo here nax-t Thursday night, the Louisville Commercial says: "A genuine innovation is Reeves and Munroe's operatic burlesque of •-Faust." The main feature of the show is not the. acrobatic song and dance man .with his striped clothes and electric light dia- i monds. The fair skipping-rope artist with her set smile and supple limbs has been relegated to the second rank; the serio comic has not been heralded in big letters at the top of the bill, and even the acrobat and aerialist have not been secured at great cost as special attractions.Of course all the artists who.pursue specialties of this ilk .are there, but they are merely asecondary consideration—the extra baggage, as ii were, of the real features of the show. The performance on the opening night proved highly satisfactory and the company has been drawing was .the largest of the week, every seat being filled and the space around the walls being occupied as standing room. The case 'will be continued tomorrow morning. A lMeiihu.iic4Jelcbca.tJon. Those who are best acquainted with the genial Geor-g-e W. Immel. would scarcely believe that he bad passed the GOth milsetone in the journey of life. Yet strange as this may seem it is a fact, admitted even by himself.. The celebration of this auspicious event was duly celebrated by Mr. Immel last night and his pleasant rooms on Broadway were thronged last even ing by a crowd of congenial spiciis who met to wish their whole souled host many happy returns of the day. The best of refreshments were served during the evening, and the occasion was one of much jollity. Mi'. Immel, although one of the old school, proved himself. an entertainer- ot the new school, and made the celebration a pleasant one for his friends. If it were not beyond the bounds of human expectancy the Journal would wish George another sixty years of life, but can safely wish him as many as he cai-es to enjoy. Grocery IB Open.

Dykeman gave much stress to this circumstance yesterday, also claiming that the preponderance of the evidence introduced was in favor of the defendant instead of against him.' • j Shaffer was put ' on the. stand! to testify in his own behalf, being the last witness in the case. After relating- the day's events up to the hour when the fatalily occurred he said that be was standing outside the saloon when Lowry came out. Lowry turned to him and said "•I'll break your d—d neck" at the .same time striking at him.
