MONEY TO LOAN!,- And Notes Bought In any sum over$25atlowBBt; A Loss to L The Crawfordsville Journal says: The authorities of the Christian church state that the money requisite for the calling of Elder S. W. Brown of Logansport, is about raised and the official call will be extended at once. It is thought that Mr. Brown may beg-in his work here within two weeks but certainly not later than April 1st. The church is to be congratulated upon its energy and the acquisition of so fine a pastor. It is now generally understood that Rev. Brown who has for the past two years and a half served so successfully in a pastoral relation to the Ninth street Christian church congregation leave the city to accept a call to the pulpit of the Christian church at Crawfordsville. During Mr. Brown's ministry in this city he has done much to build up the church under his charge and the reverend gentleman may find good cause for personal feli- itation in a review of the work done. Under his able ministry the church has more than doubled its .membership and is now the largest congrega- aon in the city. His contemplated departure is a matter of sincere regret n the part of his flock and his hundreds of other friends, who, while re- jretting- the undisputed loss to jthe ,ocal church and to the society of our ;ity, will congratulate their pastor and reverend friend upon his call to assume charge of a fine new church .at a ubstantial increase in salary. It is probable that Mr. Brown will move the first of April. Catarrh In the head Is a constitutional Disease, and requires A constitutional remedy Like Hood's Sarsaparilla. Which purifies the blood.

The high position attained and the universal acceptance and approval of the pleasant liquid fruit remedy Syrup of Figs, as the most excellent laxative known, illustrate the. value of the qualities on which its success is based and are abundantly gratifying to the California Fig Syrup Company. The Pickwick Buds were entertained Friday night by the Misses Nelson at their home on Market street. After devoting an hour to the literary work of the club, dancing was. indulged in until a late hour. Elegant refreshments were served. The rubicon has been crossed', and all is on the buzzard. The temporary fate of the park plan has been placed in the hands of [our men, and 'the Trades and Labor Assembly will anxiously await the decision of the primary tribunal of the people. It is hoped that it will not be necessary to appeal the matter to the high court of public opinion, but that immediate and favorable action may be had so that they who have already given their written' guai-antees may commence work, and that the hundreds who still stand awaiting lo Jo something in this great • public enterprise may find an opportunity. A failure to approve the plans of the union men will " be the loss of the many thousands of dollars in money and labor anxiously wailing to be called upon. Human generosity in this case lias outstripped any precedent undertaking in the history of Logansport. It will not be presumed that the city council will refuse to accept the money and labor gratuitously laid in the coffers of the city. As has been many times explained, the acceptance of the Assembly plan will be a saving of many thousands of dollars to the city. This plan obviates the expensive filling that has been for so many years the feature which above all others has most seriously retarded the improvement of the grounds. The fault is not that of nature, but that of mens' minds. The grounds as a whole are stamped with the impress of nature, providentially for a single put-pose; the purpose for which wisdom has solely devoted them, a ''public park- The eutire rim is gently elevated above the interior area, suggesting to- man the fundamental frame work upon which nature designed, should be beautiful. Nature has ever been the handmaid of art. True landscape art seeks not to distort or pervert, but on the other hand its 1 aim. is to build to that which has already been done and suggested by nature. This is not only true to art but it is economy. A hill of gravel dumped onto the park ground would be a fatal mistake. Gravel contains no life-sustaining powers for grass, trees or flowers. The natural topography of the ground; —the handwriting of nature—shoulcV not be destroyed. This false idea, is the serious popular mistake which the Assembly plan seeks to remove,, and in doing this it further hopes to greatly economize time and money. By it the natural topography of tne grounds- have been take a advantage of, The excessive fertility of the soil[ which insures the luxurious gaowth . of grasses and flowers and trees will not be destroyed by a deposit of lifeless gravel and the natural depressions which have for so long been wrongly deemed objectionable, features will transmute themselves into minature, lakes with irregular margins of gravel and crowning grass and foliage. A veritable heaven for childhood can be at these points;ai-ranged. In Grand Central park New York, are many .childhood elysiums like these, and on the gravelly margins of'their silently gleaming waters whole eons of joy are snatched from swiftly speeding time on the contract for the building of a levee and rip-rap from Tenth street to Fifteenth street, and other practical, works soon. The subscription money will be entirely expended through the subscription trustees, Messrs. John Stapleton, J. C. Had ley -and \Veldon Webster. If tho city will do as she is empowered to do, vix: sell the Usher lota and use the money for park pui'- Dlplitlseria. In a severe case, there is but one thing to do, get the nearest physician, but how much better it would be to prevent a severe case by having Pineapple Syrup in the house; it will ,do e work. Try it.

The public are Invited to call and aid . this worthy organization and get a square meal, all with a quarter. . feblld-it John Bollay died at his residence on the South Side, last night at 11.15 I o'clock. by innocent childhood. The city park committee will be duly apprised of the many beautiful and practical features of the Assembly plan. If action is immediately had on this matter five thousand dollars in labor will .be donated to the park, immediately, and the ground prepared for grass and trees. Allready many kind ladies have made prefers of flowers: and it is believed that it will not be necessary to touch one cent of the subscription money for purchase of flowers, trees or grass; these will come all too s.oon from women and children whose generous sympathies will be awakened at the prospect of building so lovely a site. Each tree may be dedicated to the memory of the donor and who so poor in affection that he would not permit so lasting a-tribute to his good nmae? Bich, varigated beds of flowers will be the gift of childhood, and trees may possibly leaf and bloom in tribute to family generosity. The following men are on the city park,committee, viz: Messrs S. B. Boyer, Geo. Palmer and Thomas McKeever. They will be assisted by city engineer Osmer, and by Tuesday night next will likely be ready to confer with the Trades Assembly park committee; Mr.. Boyer the chairman of the former committee., has already requested that the chairman of the latter committee get in readiness to meet them and assist in the survey next Tuesday. The Trades Assembly ask for immediate action on the case as they are anxious to begin work. They hope to be in readiness to receive bids poses, Logansport can soon be made happy in park advantages. In the success of the park there is an incalculable advantage to Logansport other than that paid in common happiness and health. It will give tone to the entire city, and every merchant will feel its influence. When the park has assumed significance this city will be popularized throughout the State by it, and from every surrounding town we may hope to draw thousands of visitors during the seasons of spring, fall andsummer. They will anxiously come to this city to enjoy our lawns and drives and walks, the rich luxuries of the park and the boating pleasure of the river. Logansport could be made a summer resort. At last she is on. the road to fame the very moment the sealof the city is affixed to Assembly Park plans. Trades and Labor Assembly will perhaps take other important a'ctiou this forenoon. The unsolicited writings appearing in the PLaros, although thankless so far as their reception is concerned to the public, and undoubtedly directed by one whose delight is but to disturb, is doing a great good, for they are bringing out the latent beauties of the Asssmbly plans. A dilated view of just what this magnificent project will be with its million beauties could not be expressed on canvas and must needs be left to the emblazoning pen of a Quill. The sinister motives of a critic invariably burst into sunshine when devoted to the injury of truth and exellence. Mr. Quill, in his -voluminous utterances, shows himself a real appreciator of art, but in this particular case, his merit could be surpassed by a sentimental school girl, since his remarks are but enlargements in most instances, of the fundamental features of the Assembly plans. And had he not stood admiringly before the beautiful coloring in John Dewenter's window, absorbing with ravished delight the outlines of the plan stamped with the wisdom of the Trades Assembly; or had he not- feasted his mind on. the zinc etchiogs .that have so many times appeared in the public papers, there is some possibility .that his critiques would have never found birth. There is a vast difference between an original invention and one improved. A seven-year old child was once seen to'take a pencil and proceed' to smoothe'-Vdown the irregularities of a parabola drawn in freehand by a great artist. This was nothing. Had Mr. Quill been there he could have done . the same thing. It is sincerely hoped tbat the remarks of Mr. Quill will not cease suddenly to flow, like water in sand, but that he go on with' his ''innocent and beneficial indulgence' till, the public be brought, fully to realize the numberless beauties of the proposed park, that for many reasons could not be practically expressed by the Assembly on their canvas not too much can be said. The plans were intentionally magnificent, for this very object, that people could have something to build on through the coining years. And after we are all no more, "and the silly chaflof all that has been said has been blown, away, still will there remain vacant spots for new flowers and trees and food for endless imagination, . W.
