OVER A MILE Of Brick Pavement Has Been Laid in Logansport. A Few Hgnres Showing How Well We Hare Bullded. Logansport has the name of being a very conservative city. "Tla well, when one considers the truth of the old saw, that "Haste Makes Waste." But it is equally true that our citizens know a good thing when it is flashed before their eyes, as Is attested by the rapidity with which they adopted brick paving after Fourth street received its coating of vitrified clay. Up to the fall of 1894 this street was in littJe better condition than some of the much cursed corduroy roads of years gone by. There was a succession of knobs and ruts, Interspersed with gobs of mud, and a drive over its surface was not conducive to pleasant thoughts. It was but a few years ago that the festive porker sought ease and comfort In its slimy depths. Gradually public sentiment rebelled, the bog was banished and time and money freely expended to bring about a better condition. The day of betterment seemed far distant. But all things come to the patient, and so it was with the street question. Three years ago the concentrated arguments and agitations for better roadways culminated in the letting of the contract for bricking Fourth street. This was the initial effort, and it was so highly satisfactory when completed as to commend a continuance of the movement. It was considered a thing of beauty and a joy for— years to come So much for agitation. Last season Market and Fifth streets property owners fell into line and those thoroughfares assumed an air of respectability. This year the agitation was once more re*- sumed and the work inaugurated on a much grander scile. Third.Bring- hurst, Wall and Court streets, and lastly Broadway, lost their old-time appearance and now present their smooth, hard surfaces to the eye, blotting out forever their many in- iqaities, which now become but grim memories of the past. A discussion having arisen as to the total length ot paved streets, a representative called upon the obliging city clerk this morning and obtained the exact number of feet and the total cjst. The figures show 8,611.61 feet, or more than a mile and a half. They are: Feet. Cost. Fourth street 1.430 $ 9.05'J 13 Fifth - -H591 4,11824 Market W= 1-064 14 Bringhurst 44427 J,SOS 00 Third . ..1,305,43 0,940 Oo Wall 470 1,050 00 Broadway 1.705 21,019 13 Court.....! TOO 1.MS5 50 jotaJ 8.011.61 $53,93413 This is truly a magnificent showing, and oar citizens may well feel proud of the result. The agitation is not to stop here. "On to Sixth street" is now the rallying cry, and next spring will see the commencement of work on that line of traffic. Sycamore street property owners have the improvement under advisement and with a probability ot getting into the procession. The Broadway asphalt scheme is also being given its share 01 attention. Altogether the prospects for a con- tinuauce of the good work are good, A DRAMATIC TREAT. '•Onr Step-HosbaDd" at the Opera House Monday Mght. "Our Step-Husband," one of the best attractions on the road this season, will be presented at the opera house Monday night. The play contains a strong and well constructed plot, and at the same time a vein of comedy runs through the entire piece, which keeps the audience In constant good humor. From the rise of the curtain in the first act to the fall of the same in the fourth, the interest in the play never lags for a single moment. The scenic effects are new and novel and the stage settings very elaborate. The cast presenting ' Our Step- Husband" is far above the average, and in fact everything has been done to make this an attraction first-class in every particular. The hearty welcome which this piece has received this season is the strongest evidence of its true worth and sterling merit. A number of new aad up-to-date specialties are introduced.

Saoke the Columbia cigar A LITTLE SUFFERER Face. Hands and Arms Covered With Scrofulous Humors—How a Cure Was Effected. •'When fire years old my little boy had scrofula on Ms face, hands and arms. It was worst on his chin, although the sores on his cheeks and hands were very bad. It appeared in the torm of red pimples whici would fester, break open and run and then scab over. After disappearing they would break out a^ain. They caused intense itching and the little sufferer had to *>e watched continually to keep him from scratching the sores. We became greatly alarmed at his condition. My wife's mother had had scrofula and the only medicine which bad helpd her was Hood's Sarsaparilla. We decided to give it to our boy and we noted an improvement in his case v«ry soon. After giving him four bottles of Hood's Saiaaparilla the humor had all been driven out of his blood and it has never since returned." WILLIAM BABTZ, 416 South Williams Bt^ Sooth Bend, Indiana. .
