'25, '91.] 'We must be born again." Is said ol man! 'We must be born again," nor mortal can By art, or llgbt of Moral Science, solve The mystic propos tion; nor evolve From that which evil Is. a better stole, Nor has the would be generating pate A ken of that within the evil thing 'From which a lastlnc 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, iinds Infectious deadly grasp which firmly binds Its helpless victim to the lowest bog To share the husks loathed by the filthy hog. Thus.fallen.iiature's evoiut'ons are. But downward steps the face of God to mar. Yet, does not humim wisdom grandly shine On history's misty pages, line by line? Most famous Roman, Grecian sages tell Of philosophic minds with mk-hly swell 01 eloquence, unequalled by all time. Pythagoras then lound, and placed In rhyme. In Nature's fate and on the earth he trod, Abundant proof of a Creator, God! On every side a thousand Gods appear To (111 thetroubled soul with diead and fear: Their hopes and fears with thought despondent strewn Till Paul explained to them the God Untoiown! Unknown to them, The God of love. The good That filled ihelr minds—the Dragon's vicious food. But wtat were. they\>f whom their poets speak And boast their brutal 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 find new life above.

The school population is nearly 30 per cent, of the entire population of the township and the enrollment equals 23 per cent, of the: entire population leaving 7 persons out of every one hundred.not improving the opportunity • offered them by our public schools, for an -education. Why? Length of school term about 6 J months Wages $2 per day.. Teachers' institute the 2nd Saturday ol, each month.. ;• . But.one school in the county, outside of .Logansport that -is larger than the Coonville school. Superintendent Searight has visited 01 r township twice this term. HALIFAX. An Old Club Kevivcd. "The Centennial" dancing club which was in existence from 1876 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 a grand charity bail 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 num-. her 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. Culp's orchestra. RAILEOAD RUMBLINaS. UeiiiH from llio Note-Book of Our Riiilwjiy Kei»orter—Points Per-' and Otherwise. "Why do you call your engine she," was asked of an old engineer yesterday? • _ ••;• '•Because she fires up quickly, makes a terrible clatter when she Is fired up and can't whistle a. tune," was the reply. February "1st Mi-. W..C. Arp' took charge ot the Dennison Ohio shops which are large and more important than the Logansport, shops. He suc- ceedsr'Master Mechanic Street who died recently. Mr. Reynolds is trans- fered from the Columbus shops to Lo- gaasport at his own request but on accou&t of poor health will not take charge here immediately. The Columbus shops are placed in 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 Pittsburg, 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 i-emoved 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, O.K. C., of this'city, will hold a meeting to-morrow.—Indianapolis News. Journal: Your item to-day in railroad column 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; West from here and I give the train coming Easi? 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 would reach North Judson before the train coming East had. Yours, A TELEGKAPHEK. Before the w:eek closes the trainmen on the Pennsylvania lines west of Pittsburg will likely know the result ef 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. The committees made 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 V. V. S. C. K. 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 nearly 800,000 members and which claim 250 members in this city. The meeting was presided over by T. J. Legg an'd was an interesting meeting for the society. In the evening Rev. Dr. Haines, of Indianapolis, addressed the assembled Christian Endeavor Societies. Gratifying to AM. 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 MeClure by Charles MeCootnbs was murder and the latter has been committed without bail. FINGER RINGS. They Wove .Popular With the Ancients and Are Still In Favor. The finger ring- is not alone a woman's possession, as any casual observer •must confess. The great, glaring settings of rad. green and white, the resplendent clusters of diamonds which form a. striking- feature of many men's Jiancls, render it certain that woman has J ho exclusive right in the finder 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 Kind's ami their male subjects have sporU'd the bauble. The art lavished on the construction of the ornament by the artisans of to-day scarcely equals that practiced by the jewelers of two hundred years ago. The designs and mounting's of rings in Queen Eliziv- beth's time have not been excelled in later days, owijig, doubtless, to the limited sc-ope for invention offered by.thecircnhtr form and necessary light bod}' 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 relies 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 might 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 Stratford-on- Avon churchyard. Ring's 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 the 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 hands of their headdresses: Rabelais speaks of the rings Garg-antua wore because his father desired him to "renew that ancient mark of nobility. On the' forefinger of. his left hand he had a gold l-ing 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 spirewise, •wherein was set a perfect ruby, a pointed diamond and an emerald 'of inestimable value." • ' Recurring tf> 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 lingers like a shield. At the commencement of the present century harlequin rings were very imich in vogue. At the present time a simple gold band is favored, with immense setting's 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 TORSE-TRADERS, Tho Humbugging Methods in Vogue Among Them. The Oriental mind is disposed to mingle 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 Jew piastres. The owner, however, seemed very sure of making a favorable sale, even if the present customer should- withdraw. So he 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." All 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 sis hundred piastres? . Here is the money. Take it!" Then he pressed the bag into the other's hand and turned away. - "Never mind about your horse. I care-riot for it. Shall we part as enemies because of money?" At this point the other, who now had his money secure, ran after his customer, fell on: his neck, and, kissing him on both cheeks, 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, hargain was concluded.—N. Y. Journal —All .the Same. —An artist who ha'd engaged a peasant as a model, -aav&jyvho had .nearly completed his sketch;vwas! somewhat astonished at finding another- man in his place one morning when he went to work; with the following' explanation: "Beg your pardon, Mr. Painter, but as Seppi had no time today, he asked me to come and take his place.''— niefivncle Blatter S M O K ED ME A T 'Of this Brand will be found Select Goods; Slaughtered and Cuiod by' W.

While we are free American citizens, Enjoying our personal liberty; but most of us are in physical slavery, suffering from scrofula, salt rheum or some other form of impure blood. Hood's Sarsaparilla is the great blood purifier- which disolves the bonds of disease, gives health and perfect physical liberty. 1 HOW SAVAGES EAT. Curious Customs of Semi-Civilized and Ifcrrlmrons Peoples. In all thoroughly civilized countries the members of a family and then- guests partake of meals while collected around a central board, but this is not so ivith the majority or even a fraction of the semi-civilized and barbarous nations. " The Maldivian Islanders dine alone, retiring to the n*bst secret parts of their huts for the purpose of eatirfg 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 fishbones; 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 eloutl lies in the west, fearing that the "Great Air Whale," whose bellow-, ing (thunder) is of ten. heard in that country, will pounce upon. a.nd utterly . annihilate them for such irreverence. .-,-Unlike the Maldivians, .the natives of the Philippines are-sociable to an extraordinary degree. Whenever one of them finds himself without a 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 to sa^siy it withotit 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, feed 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 and sister may eu-t-tr-p-pUi"!-. hv.\ U'ts rniiKt :il\vays bf the voiiiii?:.--'.' •••'"•'' -•- •<.";t •'-•!'• '.',-.? li>.m: ilv.—ft.
