Dr, Putnam, Jan. 25, '91.] "We must be Dorn again,' 1 is snid of man! -We must be born again," nor mortiil can By art, or light of Moral Science, solve The mystic propos Won; nor evolve From that which evil Is, a uetter state, Nor has the would be generating pute A ken of that within the evil thing 'From which n lastinc good or beauty bring. How strange to say. and all the ages show Old Nature's evolutions tend below, And, grapllng In the loathsome mire, linds Infectious deadly grasp which firmly binds Its helpless victim to the lowest bog To share the husks loathed by the filthy hog. Thus.fallen nature's evolut'ons are But downward steps the face of God to mar. Yet, does not human wisdom grandly shine On history's misty pages, line by line? Most famous Roman, Grecian sages tell Of philosophic minds with miihty swell Of eloquence, unequalled by all time. Pythagoras then found, and placed in rhyme. In Nature's face and on the earth he trod, Abundant proof ot a Creator, God! On every side a thousand Gods appear To fill the troubled soul with diead and fear: Their hopes and fears with thought despondent strewn Till Paul explained to them the God Unknown! Unknown to them, The God of love. The good . That filled 'their minds—the Dragon's vicious food. But what were they\>f whon/their poets speak And boast their brctal deeds, whose morals reek with shameful scenes and most Immoral lives Where human evolution feeds and thrives? "Ye must be born again," the Bible says; But Christ, the Word alone, the work displays, And gives true light to those who trust His love, And others help to tad new life above.

"Tbe Centennial" dancing club which was in existence from 1S76 to 1880 which included many of the leading citizens of the town, held a reunion last night at the G. • A. R. ball and what with dancing and reminiscences of the past aright merry time was had-. This old club during its time did much for. the cause of charity, concluding each season with :i grand charity ball for ' the benefit of the orphan's home. Other charitable institutions we aided by the club, membership in which was much sought after in those days. The reunion last evening was participated in by quite a number of the old members and their' wives and tho event proved so delightful that it was decided to give a grand invitation dance in the near future. The music for the dance last night was furnished by J. M. CulpV orchestra. RAILROAD RUMBLINGS. Item* from the Note-Book of Our Knllwjiy Reporter—Point* for, xcmnl ••Why do you call your engine she,' was asked of an old engineer yesterday? '•Because she Sires up quickly, makes a terrible clatter when she -is fired up and can't whistle ;i tune," was the reply. February -1st Mr. W..C. Arp ' took charge of the Dennison Ohio shops wljich are large and more iinportanl than the Logansport shops. He succeeds." Master Mechanic Street who died recently. Mr. lleynolds is trans- fered from the Columbus shops to Lo- ganapbrt at his own request but on acco.unt of pool- health will not take charge here immediately. The Columbus shops are placed ID charge of the Superintendent of Motive power and Civil Engineer Bush who has done some fine work in this county. A few weeks ago F. Darlington, superintendent of the first .division of the Pittsburgh Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis lines, made a change in the runs on the fast trains by which the same engine hauled the train from Indianapolis to Columbus, O. , instead of changing engines, as has been the practice for years before. The experiment has not proved satisfactory. The engineers found it almost impossible to make the time with the fast trains for so long a distance, and they now return to the old plan of changing engines at Bradford. The State and city committees of the Order of Railway Conductors will meet at the New Dennison House next Tuesday, at 9 a. m., to take action toward getting the headquarters of the order removed to this city. The State committee is composed G. M. Safford, J. W- Caskey, A. H. Cutter, William Businger and W. J. Spence. The members of the local committee are H. M. Mounts. A. J. Morrow and I. D. Baldwin. The joint committee will hold a conference with the Board of Trade and Commercial Club during its session. Division No. 103, 0. R. C., of tb is -city, will hold a meeting to-morrow. — -Indianapolis News. Journal: Your item to-day in railroad columa in regard to Lap, order is also mixed some. _ I will explain a Lap order thus: "If I were dispatching trains in Pan Handle offices here and I had a train coming East from .Chicago and one going W T est from here and I give the train coming East; an order to meet the train West bound at Winamac and give the train going West an order to meet the train coming East at North Judson. Then I would have made a lap order. You can readily see that the meeting points I have named to each train lap over other, which would result in a collision between Winamac and North Judson unless the train coming East would arrive at Winamac before the train going West had or that the train going West vvould reach North Judson before the train coming East had. Yours, A Before the week closes the trainmen on the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg will likely know the result 91 the recent conference between their committees and the officials of the lines in regard to wages. One of the officials says that the conference- was conducted in a manner satisfactory to all parties. Thecommittecsmade.no rash demands or threats,- and they only ask for what, in the ' main, the officials admit is reasonable. Whether the officials grant the requests or not a point has been reached which will cause the employes to feel that the officials of the system are disposed to" do as well by the company's employes as the business of the lines will justify. , ". The Y. V, S.'C. JE. Celebration. The various Young People', Societies of Christian Endeavor in this city met at the First Presbyterian Church Sunday afternoon. , and celebrated | the tenth anniversary of the institution of this wide-reaching: society which now numbers dearly 800,000 members and which claim 250 members in this city. The meeting was presided over by T. J. Legg and. was an interesting meeting for the society. In the evening Rev. Dr. Haines, of Indianapolis, addressed the assembled Christian Endeavor Societies. Gratifying 10 AW. The high, position attained" and the universal acceptance and approval of the pleasant liquid fruit remedy Syrup of Figs, as the most excellent laxative known, illustrate the value of the qualities on which its success is based and are abundantly gratifying to the California Fig Syrup Company. The Montgomery county coroner holds that the _ killing- : of young Walter McClure by Charles McCoombs was murder and the latter has been committed without bail. ' FINGER RINGS. rhey TVcre Popular With tlie Ancients and Arc Still In Favor. The finger ring 1 is not alone a wom- ,an's possession, as any casual observer •must confess. The great', glaring settings of red. green and white, the resplendent clusters of diamonds which form a striking feature of many men's hands, render it certain that woman has 'no exclusive right in the finger ring as she has in the necklace, the bracelet and the brooch and the ear-rings. And why should she, when from time im- morial Kings and their male subjects have spurted the bauble. The art lavished on the construction of the ornament by the urtLsans of to-day scarcely equals that practiced by the jewelers of two hundred years ago. The designs and mountings of rings in Queen Eliza.- beth's time have not been excelled in later days, owing, doubtless, to the limited scope for invention offered by. tlie circular form and necessary light body of the metal. But fe\v collections of rings exist in this country. We are too busy forging- fortunes to devote much time and attention to gathering up relics. In Europe, however, much interest centers in the collections. A superb cabinet, known as the Londesboro, is the best in Great Britain, it contains numerous rings of early English and some few of Roman times. Private hands, however, possess most of the finger treasures of En- land's great dead. In France such relics pass by a kind of gravitation into the keeping- of the Government: in England it is just the contrary. Noble houses preserve their own treasures, and to this day some of the choicest of old mementoes are possessed by humble persons, descendants of those to whom the treasures originally belonged. Signet rings were at an early day adopted as evidence both of nobility and authority. Then they soon gained a commercial value, and every leading tradesman had his mark upon his hand, that it mig-lit be used when required as his signature. A ring- possessing a strong- claim to notice purports to be the seal ring- of William Shakespeare, and was found March 10, 1S10, by a laborer's wife in the mill close adjoining- Steatford-on- Avon churchyard. Rings were at Shakespeare's time.an almost necessary part of an. outfit of a gentleman—they indicated rank and character by their style or devices. Hence tbe wills and inventories of the era abound with notices of rin?s, many persons wearing- them in profusion, as may .be seen in portraits painted at this time. The Germans particularly delighted in them, and wore them upon many fingers and upon different joints of the fingers, the forefinger especially, a whimsical custom still kept by their descendants. The ladies even wreathed them in the bands of their headdresses. Rabelais speaks of the rings Gargfantua wore because his father desired him to "renew that ancient mark of nobility. On the forefinger of bis left hand he had a gold ring- set with a large carbuncle, and on the middle finger one of milled metaL On the middle finger of the right hand he had a curious ring-, made spire-wise, wherein was set a perfect ruby, a pointed diamond and an emerald of inestimable value." Recurring tp Eastern nations, in •whose eyes jewelry always has found great favor, we find that the Indians prefer rings with large floriated faces, spreading- over three fingers like a shield. At the commencement of the present century hai-lequin rings were very mxich in vogue. At the present time a simple gold band is favored, with immense settings of diamond mixed with rubies or turquoise. For ladies the rings are shown in all sorts, colors and sizes. Perfect masses of diamonds, made up to represent petals of different flowers are quite the style, but very costly.—N. Y. Star. ___ ORIENTAL HORSE-TRADERS. The Humbugging Methods in Vogue Among Them. The Orientel mind is disposed to tnitt- gle all the dealings of life with an amount of "sentiment" which would be scorned by the more liberal business man. of the West. A -visitor at Damascus gives the following description of a horse trade in that city: A long dispute took place between the intending purchaser and the owner, as the former attempted to beat down the price by a few piastres. The owner,' however, seemed very sure of making a favorable sale, even if the present customer should withdraw. So ha remained silent, with an occasional inconsequent remark, such as: "It matters not." "Wallah, who am I to argue with thee?" "Wallah, my. horse is as dust. Take it without money." Ail these expressions are equivalent to, cold negatives, and might naturally have exasperated the other man, who had been wasting oceans of rhetoric in persuasion. -Finally, he, in his turn, exclaimed, with a heart-warming" show of generosity and philanthropy: "Wallah, are we not brothers? Wherefore all this noise? Is it for money? Allah forbid! You want one thousand six hundred piastres?-. Here is the money. Take it!" Then he prnssed the bag into the other's hand and turned away. - "Never mind about your horse. I care 'not for it. Shall we part as enemies because of money?" At |his point the other, who now had his mteey secure, ran after his customer, fell Calais v ncck, and, kissing him on both cSSeeGs, assured him that the horse would henceforth be worthless to him; that, since his brother wished for it, he must take it as a present. And so the. bargain was concluded.— N. Y.

Curious Customs of Semi-Civilized and Barbarous People's. In all- thoroughly civilized countries the members of a family and their guests partake of meals while collected around a central board, but this is not so with the majority or even a fraction of the semi-civilized and barbarous nations. '' The Maldivian Islanders dine alone, retiring to the wost secret parts of their huts for the purpose of eatitfg- their food. This custom probably arose among- them in an early period in their, history, for fear, perhaps, that another with equally as sharp an appetite and more bodily strength would deprive the feaster of his meal. * The coasters of the Fiji Islands will not eat until they can sit flat upon, the; ground directly over a triangle made of three small fish hones; then they only handle the food with the left hand. The inhabitants of the interior of the same islands will not partake of food while a cloud is in sight, especially if the cloud lies, in the west, fearing that the "Great Air -Whale," whose bellowing- (thunder) is of ten. heard in that country, will pounce upon and ; utterly annihilate them for such irreverence. '•'.•Unlike the Maldivians, the natives of the Philippines are .sociable to an extra-. ordinai - y degree. Whenever one of them finds himself. -withouta companion to -partake of his meal he -; runs, till he meets with one; and I am .assured that however keen his own appetite may be he will not venture, tp satisfy it without a companion. . _ The natives of Sakaria never partake. of food while on the. ground,; but sling the meal into a -woven grass bag and mount to the thick foliage at the top of; some high tree,' where the meal is eaten in solitary silence. The Otaheiteans, although great lovers of society and very gentle in their manners, 1'epd separately from each other, each particular member of . the: family taking his or her basket and turning with back to all others in the room. The Dyaks divide in pairs when the hour arrives for taking food; the father and mother at one platter. t\vo sisters at one and still two brothers at another. When" the family is not equally divided as to sex a brother nnd sister may i-Mt t pv>iV>ni ^ r.\ ( I i'- ivniM nlv ,u-s IK- the vou. ,-. ' i < 1 '' ••> -f.nii- ASSEMBLY PARK.
