Owen's reception on Wednesday ir the red parlor of the Ebbitt was one of the most elegant affairs of-the season, although informal. On this occasion the mantsl was banked with choice cut flowers or pots of palms.

The Natural Gas Company notified the various manufacturing establishments yesterday that they would be compelled^ to cut off their supply of gas on account of the increased, demand ' by private consumers. The fact is apparent that in a severe .winter the gas supply would be insufficient for the private consumers and the factories. The short time in the year the factories would be compelled to suffer [from this inconvenience will not be serious if some method "of i,_ In the AmuNfiiient Lino. The Lincoln Journal pays the following high compliment to the Company which will, hold the boards at Dolan's to-uight: "Reeves' English Operatic Burlesque Company pre- sented'their original salire on Goethe's immortal poom "Faust" at the Grand- last night to a crowded house, and tb ; say the audience was pleased would' be to express it mildly indeed. ,', "The satire is written by Mr. MUIK roe, the well-known Boston newspaper man and is really excellent, the lines sparkle with wit and are interpreted by a company far above the average. "The music is all that could be expected from the genius and taste of Prof. Zinn, the composer and musical director. "The chorus is strong, and is.com- posed of by far the prettiest girls that have, visited this city for some time. "The burlesque is devoid of all that is coarse and common, and we are pleased to note that some of our most respected society ladies were among the audience last night. The Journal extends congratulations to Messrs Reeves and Munroe, and hopes that our citizens may soon again have the pleasure of seeing their pleasing entertainment." ^ THE LIMITED MAIL. Of the above play to be here on the llth the Columbus Press said: "The house was packed from" pit to dome. The S. R. 5|J. sign being displayed twenty-five minutes before the curtain rose, and still people kept pouring in. willing and anxious to stand, if by so doing they could catch an; occasional glimpse of the stage. From the time, the curtain went up at 'the opening of the first act until it fell, the audience was simply crazy. Never'- before, in the history of the* drama in Columbus has a play ^been received with such wild enthusiasm." A LOGAXSPOKT PEDESTRIAN. The Sunday Philadelphia Press contains an -account of the exhibition of' atheletic sports given at the.-Academy' of Music on last Saturday night under the auspicies of the University of Pennsylvania from which we notice Henry W. Thornton, of Logansport, won the gold medal in the mile walk. He is a student in the University of Pennsylvania. It was a most brilliant affair and was participated in by. representatives from Yale, Cjlumbia, Princeton and "other colleges. The Press says: "The mile walk followed,and so anxious were the spectators to see what that much heralded Freshman, Thornton the foot ball player could do,' that Starter Turner could.: not send the young men on their tedious journey too soon. Thornton had a start of fifty seconds and it was expected to be a hard tussle between this man and the noted C. L. Nicoll, of the Manhattans. Thronton stuck pluckily at his work and mjver weakened. He finished first in the very good actual time of 7.31. He had walked a nervy race and Dr. Faries had to help him off the track at its close, so exhausted was he." From the Press account we learn it was a very brilliant affair witnessed :by one of Philadepbia's most brilliant audiences. Mr. Thornton is one of the Univer- isity.foot ball team and some time ago :was presented with a gold watch for. ;his fine .playing. We . congratulate young Thornton on his success in his athletic, sports and feel sure.he ..will also excel in his studies as well. The Indiana young men generally •"get there" in every thing they un-~ dertake.
