The Kokomo Tribune commenting on the editorial says: The Tribune agrees that the com. pensation is inadequate as fixed by law for the publication of delinquent tax lists and commissioners' allowances. OQ these two items tbe legal rate is entirely too low. THE fatal shooting of an inoffaneivc young-man Sunday evening without the slightest provocation by a drunken desperado, while a pal held his vicUm, was ono of the most outrageous affairs that ever occurred in Logansporc. Tholnteneo indignation of people of all classes against the guilty men promises that they will be speedily and severely dealt with in a court of justice. The man- Wordon who did tbe shooting has been regarded as a dangerous character and this dastardly affair is not the first charge that has been made against him. Besides having been indicted for highway robbery, of which charge he was acquit ted ho was engaged in an affair at a Sixth street saloon last September. At that time, it ia said, he attempted ,o sboota saloon keeper but the latter was too quick for him and shot first with effect. When dasperate characters make unsuccessful attempts to kill even though they do not inflict injury, they should be planed wbere they will never have a chance to again attempt ,bo life of a fellow man. A man who draws a revolver or knife once with ;be iotenlion to kill, except in self defense, should be deprived of liberty to make a second attempt to murder. [f the law is not strong enough in this State to place men who have ooee shown murderous designs wbere they- wlll never have an opportunity to kill ,no£f<*E8ivo people on the streets, it should be made so by the present leg- .alature.

Some Strange Manifestations of Mental Aberration. POFHODH Who Wiuh to Do I ho Sln-plrst Act* of Everyday !•"« Are Stopped ~y a I'-ulline Will rowor-i* M:ia Who Couldn't Put on Hid Co:»c. Persons who are Interested in the curious side of human nature- should look into tliu work of the French doctor and scientist Ribot on -the diseases of the human will, where arc to bo found some extraordinary instances of men and women losing their powers of volition in repsird to certain acts while they keep fully active and healthy in all others. Eschewing all research as to first causes Ilibot takes volition as a form of activity and studies it in a purely pathological sense. That strange power in ns which every day says "I \vill," that power which ' 'summons, suspends or.dis-. misses," as another Frenchman, Kenou- vier, defines it; that force in us ar.d behind us which, in its ultimate possibilities, can hardly be limited, is shown in this work to be subject to the strangest diseases and to be modified in the most peculiar manner. There arc somo persons, says the Chicago Times, and they enter into all the daily circle of life, whose wills are so soft and pliant that they need the strength of another will to be joined to theirs before they can ant.* This common phase of a weak will is accentuated in disease to a degree hardly- deemed possible by the nonobservant. Persons sulYoring- from this form of diseased volition e:in will themselves uncording to the dictates of reason. They can fci'l a. desire to act, Tmt they cannot make a. move (,o\vai-d that end.

Wien advised to travel or to attend Lo his iijiieh-negleutcd affairs lie would say: "I know that 1 ought to do so, Tmt I am unable. Your advice is very good, and I wish I could .Collow it. It is certain that, 1 have no \vill save not to.will, for I have my reason unimpaired. J know what I ought to do, but strength fails me whcu 1 ought to act." The case of the magistrate, however, is hardly as strange as that recorded by Prof. J. 11. Bennett of a man who could not. carry out what he wished to perform, even to the simplest acts of daily life. Often, on endeavoring to undress, this man was two hours before he couJd get his coat oiT. All his mental faculties were perfect, but his will was impaired. Once he ordered a glass of water. 'When the servant brought' it ho was utterly unable to take it oil the tray, though he was most anxious to do so. The servant waited half nn hour before him, at the end of which time the man overcame the difficulty, seized the glass and drank down its contents. Ho described his feelings afterwards "as if another person had taken possession of his will." The abuse of opium produces a somewhat similar condition. DC Quincey says: "The opium eater loses none of his moral sensibilities or aspirations. He wishes and longs as earnestly ns ever to realize what hi; believes to be possible and feels to be exacted by duty, t his intellectual apprehension of what is possible infinitely outruns its power, not of execution only, but even the power to attempt." Another curious instance quoted by Dr. BillioJ of isaricy is that of a man who was greatly frightened at thirty years of age by certain civic tumu'Its'in which he, unfortunately, became involved. Thereafter, though, he retained perfectly his mental balance; he would not remain alone, cither on the street or in his chamber, but was always accompanied. If he went out it was impossible for him to re-turn alone. •Whenever he went out alone, which lie rarely did, he would soon halt on the street and there remain indefinitely, neither going on or turning back, unless some one led him. 'He seemed to have a will, but it was that of those around him. Whenever :he attempt was made to overcome this resistance of the man he would fall into a swoon." There are dozens of persons who cverv year take refuge in asylums be- suse the3" arc tormented all the time with the impulse to kill those who are dear_to them. •Sometimes," says Ribot, "fixed ideas of a character frivolous or unreasonable find lodgment in the mind, which, Jiough it deems them absurd, is powerless to prevent them from passing into acts.' 1 Westphal tells ot a man who was lauuted by the thought that'he .mijfht jerchance commit to writing that he jad been guilty of some crime and ose the paper. "He accordingly care- InUy preserves every bit • of paper he inds and even picks them up on the ! street and examines them," He knows t is folly, but he is powerless to clis- miss it.

They sat on the front seat of a north side grip car because there was not even standing room in any of the closed cars. The evening was bitter cold. A philosopher, wrapped in a big storm coat and with a sealskin cap pulled down over his ears, sat on one of the side scats, with his back almost turned to the two in the front seat. They served as a wind break for him. "1 tell you McKinley is right about it," came from the front seat. "\Ve can't have a tariff too big-. You democrats waut to put coal, iron, and lumber on the free list and ruin our coal, iron and lumber industries. We can't have 'any pauper coal, and iron, and lumber cominjr into this country; no, sir, it's wrong." "Wrong, nothing," exclaimed an-. other voice. "You don't know what you're talking about. The freer trade we have the better we are oil. Let us buy our goods where we can buy the cheapest. Europe spends millions with us every year, and we spend millions with Europe—in the end it all evens up. Protection is ruining our industries instead of helping them. Free trade ia what "we need to he a prosperous nation." "You talk like a crazy man," said voice Xo. I. "You talk like a fool;" exclaimed roice No. 0. "Who's a fool?" "Who's crazy?" The philosopher turned around and surveyed the couple. They were two men returnincr from work. t Their small coat collars were turned up and they were shivering.

PRODUCTION OF,SLUE ROSES. Only to l:e Keaclint l>y a Process of Continuous Variation and Selection. A well-known naturalist recently wrote: "\Ve may have a yellow rose, but it is pretty well agreed that if we ever sec a blue, one it will be by a process of continuous variation and selection."- liy this, says Youth's Companion, it'is meant that if a blue rose is ever produced from a red variety, for instance, the change will not be a sudden one, a leap from one color to the other, but the result of a gradual progression through a series of steps leading regularly from reel to blue. In fact, it has been found that both plants and animals exhibit a tendency tosvard a definite succession of colors, and certain colors have been regarded as representing higher stages of evolution than others.' The cluing* toward these "higher"' colors are usually continuous, and require a series of variations, while, on the other hand, instances of sudden reversion to "lower" colors are not common. Red is regarded as a higher color, in this sense, than yellow. The yellow primrose sometimes varies to red, but the change is never sudden or discontinuous because it is a change in the direction of progression. But from red to yellow the chance sometimes occurs None Reserved! £E very one.of our Overcoats and Ulsters must/move, price no object!

Red and RTCen species of birds may vary to yellow, but the utmost efforts of 'breeders to produce red canaries from yellow ones have only resulted in an orange hue. Although there is no relation apparent between the two phenomena,-yet it is interesting! in connection with tliis subject, to recall the fact that among the stars certain colors appear to characterize different sta.gcs of change, or evolution. Ked stars, according to the testimony of the spectroscope, dUTcr widely in their constitution from white or yellow ones, and it has been thought that varying color may give a clew to progressive changes in the heavenly bodies. Sirius, for in- i stance, is said to have changed from red to white, and some have suspected that Arcturus is-fading from red toward yellow. Thus science, as it clears up ono inystcry, reveals another awaiting its turn to be solved. But if all knowledge could ever be attained, would it continue to be sought as eagerly as before? . WHY THE MONUMENT IS THERE. AN INTERESTING PROGRAM. The Storj- of M»J. Dude »nd IllH Bravo Companions. Many visitors to West Point .have wondered what was represented by a handsome monument of Italian marble, inscribed "Dade and His Command." The story is not told, or only casually referred to, in the popular histories, and the shaft tells nothing of the gallant deeds of those whom it commemorates. It is a fluted column of artistic design, surmounted by an eagle, from whoso beak descends a wreatli. which gracefully entwines it. The base is square, the slabs bearing the names and ' inscription being separated by miniature cannon, over which numerous stars arc placed at appropriate intervals. The names of the officers who fell with Dade arc inscribed on the slabs. But no hint is given of what they did, or when and where they felL The thrilling episode is worth recalling, says the Buffalo Commercial, especially as it occurred just fifty-nine years ago, or, to he precise, on the 2Sth of December, 1SS3. Maj. Dade and a detachment of one hundred and seventeen United States troops were within a few days' march of Fort King, Florida, when they were surprised and massacred bv over one thousand Seminole Indians. The men were rejoicing at having almost' reached the end of a long and tedious march, and wete looking forward to celebrating the Xew Year with their comrades at Fort King. They were suddenly attacked by the savages in overwhelming numbers ond slaughtered' without tacrcy. Three only survived to tell the story. An exploration of the battlefield, made in the following February, by order of Gen. Gaines, showed that the detachment had fought to the last extremity, and that each man had.died at his post. The scene presented to-the exploring part was an awful one. They buried the bodies of-eight officers and ninety* eight men, and a small siy-po"ndcr cannon belonging to the command, which was left by the Indians, was placed vertically at the head of the common grave, where it re&taioed for many- years. . The long-forgotten tragedy is commemorated by the g&ccful shaft on the banks of the Hudson, inscribed simply to "Dade and His Command." It was erected in 1S45.
