Xhymas Taggart Re-elected Mayor and the City Council Is Searly Unanimously Democratic. At the city election In Indianapolis yesterday, the Democrats cleaned the platters, electing their entire city ticket by majorities ranging from 2,500 to 4,500 ami eighteen ot the twenty-one councilmea. The majority for Mayor Taggart will reach nearly 5,000, and considering the character of the fight made agalost the ticket toe result is better than Democrats anticipated. The Republicans were hopeful of carrying the city.aod at least $25,000 changed hands on results. Rbody Shiel, ex- President Harrison's close friend,lost $7,000 betting agaiostTaggart's election. The Democrats made gains in every ward in the city, electing councilman In some wards that have heretofore given the Republicans as high as 700 majority. Although the election passed off quietly, as all our elections do under the new system of voting, there was great anxiety as to what the result wouU be. Great crowds or people gathered early to hear the returns. The Sentinel says that "sucb another night has never oeen known at the close of a political campaign in Indianapolis. Many enthusiastic Democrats had their wiveSj or slstera, or sweethearts with them, and the women were as heartily In accord with tbe spirit of the hour as their escorts, for their voices could be frequently heard blended with the deep-toned voices of the men and the frequent waving of handkerchiefs could be seen as the chapters of the great story of a stupendous Democratic success were given in the bulletins." "As the returns came In regularly and were displayed, showing almost invariably democratic gains in many precincts where the most hopeful democrats bad expectrd no gains, the eothuslasm of the crowd came as a quick and tremeoduous response in hoarse cries that rent the air and could be heard blocks away. "It was a significant thing that whenever the portrait of William Jennings Bryan was flashed before the great concourse It touched the democratic heart, for It was invariably greeted with tremendous and prolonged cheers." IU1LBOAD BREVITIES. Short Items of Interest Gathered From Many Sources. Conductor John Eallsback is entertaining bis mother, who resides at Richmond.

The Chicago & Southeastern,which extends from Lebanon to Anderson, is now certain to Be extended to Muncie. A block of. property at Anderson, which stood in th.e way of extending the track across the Panhandle, was lately secured by the road, thus giving the outlet so long desired. An investigation of the Railroad Gazette leads to the conclusion that to put the rolling stock of the railroads of the United SUtes on a normal: basis of efficiency the orders to commorclal builders In the year 1887 must amount to 2,342 locomotiTW, 97,246 freight cars and 5,400 passenger cars. Alfred W. Van Steenberg, of the Panhandle round bouse, will soon join the bans of matrimonial dliss. His choice is the charming daughter of County Recorder J. W. Wright—Miss Etta. The groom is erecting a handsome cottage on east North street, and when completed the marriage will take place. It is asserted, on what appears to be good authority, that when the winter time schedule goes into effect on the Wabash road next month, the local freight runs wlli be changed back to where they were last winter —one crew from Andrews to Fort Wayne and return, and two crews between Andrews and Lafayette. The long hours on the present runs have made it almost impossible to retain men in the train service. ADDITIONAL ITEMS. Visit Otto Shoe Co. Saturday. Fancy tomatoes, 19 bu. at Foley's. 0. P.

Gordon, Solicitor of Patents, Spry.Bloek Thought Bh» **»» Tired Waitlne- The Clark street store was almost deserted, for it was too pleasant an evening for people to go purchasing. The proprietor had gone home, after telling the young man to close up at 8. and the young man was now sitting idly near the door, gazing amiably upon the new cashier, an extremely pretty girl. Three small newsboys trotted past the door. They noted the idle young man and the moonstruck glances •which, he continued to shoot at the cashier. They halted and held consultation. Presently the young man arose, went to the little pulpit in which the cashier was ensconced and lean- Ing upon, the counter began to chatter. This was the cue for the newsboys. "Say, mister!" howled the smallest of the three. "Say, mister! Coin' to kiss her?" The young man jumped as if hit w<th a tomato and the young lady's face turned lobster pink. A moment's silence followed. The conversation was renewed, some- •«rha,t hesitatingl3 r . "Say, mister!"—another voice from outside—"when are you goin' to kiss her?" The young man and the cashier were purple with embarrassment and mortification. People passing by stopped to laugh at them. The boys said nothing more and the young man cleared his throat for another bit of conversation. "Say, mister!" from the third boy, "•why doncher kiss her?" She's tirod waitin'." The cashier put on her wraps and the young man, with many lurid remarks, closed up the store. Ea»y Down ESKC Stamp Grubbing. This is the way one of Caribou's progressive farmers clears land: He has a portable fence which he can move around without r uch inconvenience, and he encircles : rtump with it, placing within the inclosure two of his biggest hogs. Then he goes to t work with a crowbar and makes some holes around the stump, filling the holes with corn, or oats or buckwheat, whatever he has handy, and the animals get in their work. In the course of a few days the hogs have so rooted the dirt from the stump that it is an easy Job to tip it over and take it away.—Kennebec Journal. . Where It !».
