Monticello Herald: Supervisor Mas- senav of the State Line Division of the Pan Handle, was entrusted with a commission last week embodying con-, siderable of the pathetic and romantic combined. He was summondd on the 2nd inst. to Logansport by a telegram announcing the death of his friend Andrew Merton, a Swede by .birth, who had held & position similar to his own under the same company and with whom he had been on intimate terms for several years. Mr. Merton had been a confirmed invalid and unable to work for over a year, though by the co-operation of the company and his comrades on the road his name was still kept on the pay^ roll. Last summer he was. told by his physician that he could not live, and at once made arrangements to return to his fatherland. Mr. Massena being engaged to accompany him as far as New York, but at the time set for the journey he was so'much worse thatthe doctor would not permit him to undertake the trip. He boarded with Mrs. Wesse, a widow lady at Logansport, who with.the help of her blind daughter cared for him during his illness. • On reaching Logansport, -Mr. Massena found that the dying man had placed all the funeral .arrangements in his charge, and that everything was waiting his arrival. The blind girl at once led him to a trunk,, in. which he found a letter addressed to him directing Mm to take charge of his affairs after death, pay all debts and remit the balance to his heirs in Sweden—a wife and married daughter. To the blind girl he had given verbal instructions as to his burial which were minute and peculiar. He 'directed that his remains be buried in Mt. Hope cemetery, that his grave be walled with brick and cemented as high as the top of the box, that the- box should be covered w^th a slab in cement, and that a torpedo should be placed in the grave to protect his remains from grave robbers, all of which Mr. Massena carried out to the letter, .and the remains were laid to rest in this manner on Wednesday. In the trunk were also found certificates of deposit to the amount of S3,050, of which §2,950 was in Wilson's bank at Marion and the remainder in Johnson's bank at Logansport. • This sum was far in excess of what he was supposed to have accumulated, he having never divulged any of his financial affairs to anybody but his bankers. His only creditors besides the sexton and undertaker were Dr- Hattery, and Mrs. Wesse and daughter. He had been in the employ of the Pan Handle since 1871. Why he never brought his wife to this country is not known Letters from her found in his trunk : prove that they were still on affectionate terms and in constant correspondence. Letters of administration were issued this week to Mr. Massena, and he.gave bond in the sum of $6,000 with G.^ N. Ross and Henry S. Tousley as sureties. PERSONAL AND IMPERSONAL. —An, old wooden statue of George Washington, fully ten feet hig-li, has come to light in New York. It is discovered that it used .to stand in Battery park. —Israel L. L'andis, of Lancaster. Pa,, an inventor of some note, has been honored with a corresponding honorary membership in the Inventors 7 Academy of Paris. —Some men have done reiilly hard mental-work while asleep. Condorcet finished a train of calculations in his Bleep which had much puzzled him during the day. —The coffin in which the late King of Holland is buried is twice the size required owing . to the undertaker eon- fusing the new Dutch metre and the old in his measurement, which mistake •was discovered too late to be remedied. —Brig-ham Young did not possess the fabulous wealth that was credited to him. He left just $1,200,000 when he .died, and this sum was divided according- to the strictest laws of equity among- eighteen wives and their children. —A New York letter snys: "Certain /New York firms have been tryinggood- looking women as bill collectors. So far the scheme has been unsxiccessful. Three of the women married inside a week, and four more are engaged, '.vhile the balance sympathize with the poor fellows who have run into debt and have not collected a cent.'' —"It is calculated," says one of the New York Telegram's exchanges, "that a man walking- day and nig-fit could make a journey round the earth in 428 days." This is the sort of information the people pine for, although it may be .months before we can find a man capa- .ble of walking continually for 428 days and nig-hts. -A somnambulist might succeed if he.could only be hypnotized into going- in the rig-ht direction while asleep. —The original ''Annie La.urie" was one of the four daughters of Sir Robert Laurie, first baronet of Maxwelton, by his second wife, who was a daughter of Eiddell, of Mintp. The song was written by a Mr. Douglas, of Finland, about the end of the. seventeenth or the beginning-of the eighteenth century; but it is a sad fact that the poetical lover 'did not obtain the bonnie Annie for his .wife. She was married to a Mr. Fur- gnson, of Craigdarliock.—N. Y. Ledger. —Frank Moore, compiler of "The lle- bellion Record." and also an enthusiastic collector of antiquities and cxirios- ities of the revolutionary period, has secured what he -is confident is a genuine portrait of 'General George Washington, engaged in smoking a pipe. It is by a Southern artist and wa.s found among- the property of an old Virginia family. He .will shortly reproduce it for public printing-. He says it will not detract ia the least from the generally prevailing idea of the great personal dignity of Washington. —There used to be a piece of advice given by old-time -lecturers on health that in cold weather, and especially in, a dusty atmosphere, people should keep their mouths shut when out of doors and breathe through the nose: The air is better warmed in its passage to the lungs if taken thus'-than if taken'other- wise. The.particles of dust, also, are less likely to get into the lower air passages by way of the nose than by way of the mouth. There was good sense in the advice of the old-time lecturers on this-siibject.-—N. Y. Sun.

Indianapolis News: Minnie Mabbitt's sympathizers regret that she is to be tried ID advance of her brothers, and an effort may be made to have Judge Cox, revise his calendai and call the cases -against the brothers first. It often occurs in the criminal court that where several persons are implicated in a crime the first one tried has to accept the burden of the punishment. As a simple-minded country girl who acted upon the .advice of brothers older than herself, Miss Mabbitt has had the sympathy of the public, and it showed' dislike to see the punishment 'the brothers deserve inflicted upon her.
