PRICE'S CREAM BAKING POWDER HUMAN BONES. wo Skeletons Unearthed in Gravel Pits. ine Supposed to ta the Remains of Anbbeenanbbee's Wife. )ld Settlers Will be Asked to Identify the Last Find. Parts of two human skeletons were unearthed yesterday in gravel pits. The first find was made in a gravel pit in a side hill on the Jeroloman arm, near Kenneth. Supervisor J. . Moore had a force of men at work n the pit, which had just been opened, and a complet3 skeleton, iu an advanced state of decay, was unearthed at a depth of twelve feet The discovery was made by Mr Moore, who had taken up a pick to show -the workmen where to proceed n taking out the gravel. At the first blow the point of the pick penetrated the skull, and after it had been drawn forth the men assisted .n extracting the remainder of the skeleton. They worked carefully so as to not disturb the position of the skeleton, which was found In a sitting position. The skeleton was turned over to Dr. J. H. Shultz, who called In the afternoon Lo. attend a member of Mr. Moore's family who is 111 of typhoid fever, and the doctor has It on exhibition at his office on Fourth street He Is of the opinion that the ske'eten Is that of a woman who was in thti neighborhood of 60 years of age, tali and slim, and that she was, in all probability, a sister ol Major McFadlii'8 old friend, Chief Aubbeenaubbee. Many theories have been advanced concerning the presence of the skeleton there. The fact that it was discovered in a, sitting posture rather confirms the belief that th« remains are those of an Indian woman. LIQE BOOTH'S FIND. Part of another skeleton, not yet dentified, was dug up .yesterday afternoon by Lige Booth In the Michaels jravel pit, on college hill. DAUGHTERS OF REBEKA. Successful Entertainment Under Their Auspices Last Nlfht. A very enjoyable programme was carried out last evening at the Bap- ;ist church under the auspices of Jewel Lodge, Daughters of Rebeka. dr. Joseph Merrill, the violinist and cornetist, was the leading spirit of ihe entertainment. He was assisted by his wife, both of whose selections were well received. Recitations by Miss Cummins and Miss Amy Smith, as well as by Franklin Stewart, added much to the pleasure of .the occasion. As a compliment to Mr. and Mrs. Merrill, the Elks' band escorted them to the church, Mr. Merrill having been at one time director of the band, adding much to its success by his efficient leadership. A TUUANT SPOUSE NO MORE COLLISIONS. A Jiew IMTicf Whlcte Will Remind Kngi«e«r* She Left With Another Man and Took Her Husband's Money. A man by the name of GUI was in the city last night in search of his wife, who had left him a few weeks before on the possible plea of locating a more favorable partner. Mr. Gill claimed his home was In Roann, and said he came to this city from Peru, where he had been in search of his departed companion. He obtained the aid of some.of the local officers and made a search for the missing woman, but failed to find her. Mrs. Gill on the night of her departure took $180 which had been locked up for safe keeping and which makes the search for the missing woman doubly interesting. Searching for Burglars. Sheriff Charles Gilker, of St. Joseph county, Mich., was in the city last night In search of two men wanted at Centervtlle, Mich., for burglary. Their names are Charles Hatch and Gem Adams. They are about 40 years of age, and a description of them was left with the authorities here.

Practical railroad men have strongly indorsed it after seeing It work. The object of the device Is to provide an accurate and reliable reminder signal and distance Indicator for locomotives, by means of which engineers are prevented from forgetting their train orders as to stopping or meeting points. A dial placed in front of the engineer shows correctly the distance traveled. Above the dial are fifteen triggers, or "dogs," pivoted at equal distances around the center. When the engineer receives his orders he sets one or more of these triggers to a point one mile short of the distance to be traveled before reaching the stopping place. The mileage indicator on reaching such point releases the trigger, which starts a signal whistle, which continues to blow for a quarter of a mile, thus warning the engineer of the near approach to the stopping place. If the engineer Is inattentive and fails to stop when this last mile has been run,.the machine sets the air brake and stops the train for him. A train, similarly equipped,coming in the opposite direction, would be stopped In the same manner, thus averting a collision. RAILROAD NEWS.
