The following telegram was sent out from Frankfort last Saturday: "For many years George Blino. a wealthy farmer living near this city, has been engaged In making one or the finest parks and collecting specimens for one of the largest zoological gardens and museums in the United States. For years traditions Have told of a strange re ptlle Inhabiting a cave near Logansport. A month ajjo it was captured and put In Mr. Blinn's park. "Fro&i ttae under part of the doglike head and its alligatorlike body there exudes a shiny paste. The traditions have said that this substance slowly ossified any article with which it came In contact. In making the capture two of tbe men got a small quantity of it on their hands. The next day tbeir hands became insensible to pain and then gradually took on the appearance of bone. Now their hands and arms are perfectly ossified as far as their elbow joinSs. "When liberated in the park the dog, alligator or whatever It may oe, went on a wild rampage. It climbed small trees by tbe score, sprang upon the back of Mr. Blinn's favorite bear and tried to climb out over the high steel screen fence burroundlng the park. It finally disappeared in a den that had been prepared for it and has not been seen since. But Its work had been done. In the month a great tranformation scene has taken place at the park. The trees are skeletons of bone, the big bear is a magnificent piece of statuary, while the fence Is slowly but surely being ossified . Vast crowds of people view the scene daily and scientists are mystified at the strange phenomena. A few of the bones have disappeared." CHICAGO MARKETS DR. C. D.

"How did it happen that you were out of the game so much this season," inquired a 'epresentatlve of the Pharos of George Cuppy,the base ball pitcher, today. '•Because of an injury to my arm," replied the little giant of the diamond. "Tbe trouble Is in the elbow of my pitch arm. While in the midst of a game I felt a sharp pain as though the muscles and nerves had oeen torn from the bone. I have no speed now and could not throw a curve to save my life. However, I think that If I take good care of myself and rest my arm up during the winter it will be as good as ever when the season of '98 0]5ens." REAL ESTATE Reported lot the Pharos bj S«th M.

Mary Clevenger, the wife of a horsetrader, la a prisoner In the county jail. She was found guilty In 'Squire Walters' court today of pointing a revolver at Blanche Wood, wife of another horsetrader, and failing to settle, was committed Tor fifteen days. Her first husband was O'Lalry, tbe horsetrader, killed near Delphi, two years ago, by WbUmore. Whitmore was tried here and acquitted on the grounds of self-defense. SCRAPS OF -\EffS Relating to the Railroads and Their Employes. A belt road is to be built at Detroit to accommodate the roads entering that city. Wabash gross earnings second week In October, $300,989, an increase over last year of 147,191. J. S. May, superintendent of tbe Richmond division of chePanhaQdle, was In the city today. On Sunday last tbe Big Four, on different divisions ot its system, run thirteen low rate Sunday excursions, and all were well patronized. President. Thompson expresses satisfaction with the general condition of the Pennsylvania lines as he found them on bis present Inspection trip. The Pennsylvania relief department west of Plttsburg expended in September $24,362.90 to 834 members. In 99 months the association has paid out $1,909,002.67. The New York Central, with 38,897 freight cars, has only 45 per cent of such cars equipped with automatic couplers, aud the Erie, with over 40,000, has only 76 per cent supplied. The net earnings of tbe Panhandle are now exceeding those of the corresponding period last year 8 per cent, and the remaining months of the year are likely to be as satisfactory. The fact that the Pennsylvania officials inspected the Terre Haute & Logansport and Terre Haute & Peoria tends to strengthen the theory that these properties are to be absorbed from the receivership by the Pennsylvania. Superintendent Gould, of the Wabash railroad, says there is no truth in the report that the local freight trains are to be changed on tne new time csrd. He says tbe rues will remain as they are. This decision will be a sorry : disappointment to tbe trainmen. Monday evening while the Wabash section men at Kellars Station were riding on a handcar they did not notice a freight train approaching from the rear until it was within a few hundred feet away, then they jumped, but the handcar was demolished. No one hurt. John P. Green, first vice president 01 the Pennsylvania lines, who for many years has been on tbe inspection trips, says that in his extensive travels he has not seen a union passenger station which, all things considered, met his idea of what one should he as that at Indianapolis. Notice. The Cass County Bimetallic league will meet tonight in Trades Assembly hall. All friends of bimetallism are urged to be present. C. E. CARTER, President, N. W. PHIPPS, Secretary. ADDITIONAL ITEMS. Fancy belleflower apples at Foley's. Attend the bimetallic club meeting tonight. Colonel Eobert Kreuzberger is at Indianapolis calling on his trade. Must be closed out, commencing Saturday, the Aaron Greensfelder stock of shoes—Henry C. Wllley, 3rd and Market street. Maurice Winfieid, jr., returned this afternoon from Maxlnkuckee with a fine string of bass, including one weighing 7J pounds. Walt 'till Saturday and secure a choice bargain from the Aaron Greecsfelder stock of shoes—.Henry C. Willey. 3rd and Market street. Mike Graney was. arrested last night on the charge of assault and battery preferred by Sarah Franee.of Eel Klver avenue. His trial will be held tomorrow morning. On October 30th John Eckert, administrator of the estate of Christopher Minneman, will sell eighty acres of land. The land was appraised yesterday by George Rlcha- son and Joseph Grelaer at $3,600. Daniel Booue, of Dykeman's cafe, who boasts of being a lineal descendant of the great Indian fighter and scout, pat two baas in his pocket this morning, shouldered bis gun and started for the woods without leaving word for the giddy young thing* who "swVrm" efery day to prattle and giggle. Should Daniel come back many hearts will ache. Our Shoes Fit' ? ' -'-' Like gloves And they wear Like Iron. We treat cur customers Fair and square Because we appreciate Their trade.

GERMAN TAUGHT -AT- HALL'S BUSINESS COLLEGE 'i ho great and increasing demand -for the German language in business circles has led President Moora to add thia branch to the practical buEines- course. We have been, loituoate enoug-h to secure Mrs. Edith -otter, the popular and efficient teacher of German, to take chars* of this line of work.

Forgy, Harvey gave bond In the sum of $100 and was discharged. Mr. Forgy called at the Harvey farm yesterday, on business, and It Is alleged that on account of, recent litigation Willard Harvey, in a fit of anger, displayed a revolver and threatened to shoot him. MACCABEES. Some of the Advantages of the Order. From Various Great Camps. The member who can't get his neighbor to join the order evidently isn't aware that it now offers greater advantages than any society in the world. Boys, tell 'em that if he keeps in good standing the suspension of the tent won't affect him; that he can pay one year in advance; that there is one assessment a month. In fact, if you have confidence in the order, talk and work for the order and don't be a "sorehead."—Bee Hive. Chillicothe tent has taken on new life. Last month Deputy Great Commander Thomas Edney secured 40 new applications. Major N. S. Boynton, supreme secretary of the Maccabees and ex-president of the national fraternal congress, recently celebrated his sixtieth birthday. The month of November will be a strictly Maccabee month for the west. Supreme Commander Markey has made arrangements to spend the entire month in holding public meetings and visiting tents in the states of Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota. UNITED WORKMEN. New Idea For Benefiting the Order. Notes of Interest. Let the largo lodges at each meeting appoint a visiting committee of ^ve to visit another lodge und report at the nest meeting. This will give life to the weaker lodges and an incentive to work. A large amount of good work can be done in this way, and it is the duty o£ lodges as well as for their benefit to help the growth of the order.—Overseer. There was no assessment in North Dakota last month- Washington is having good luck in getting back her members who have allowed themselves to be suspended. California is having a great and glorious time, and the entire membership must be a committee of the whole. Colorado, New Mexico and .Arizona have set eyes on the winning side of the record for October and put out good solicitors, with instructions to "do or di«." The A- O. U. W. has driven distress from 37,000 firesides. Arthur Vitzhuma, a farmer of Fairbury, Ills., committed suicide by taking a. dose of poison.

McCloskey, Methodist, Isorth Georgia Conference Back!tie the Child. The important thing to us is to know that the child of a bad parent is not dependent upon the heritage from one or two parents, but *.is the race backing and encouraging him.—Eev Caroline Bartlett-Craue of Kalamazoo at People's Church, Chicago. •frill Crush Public Sentiment. I don't say that I won't take sides in the city campaign. I promise you, however, that whatever I do I won't consult any one for either my politics or my theology.

D. 31. Fisk, Coiigregation- alist, St. Louis. Vague Ticwii of the Jinny. Many think that the kingdom of the soul is a realm of perpetual miracle, whose causes do not produce logical effects and where, very often, effects can be pat out of the way by virtue of certain emotional devices and aspirations.—Rev. T. B. Angell, Episcopal, Harrisburg. labor's Cathedral. Workingmen have a theology. It did not come from a theological seminary, but from the factory. Labor is becoming more and more a social conscience. It believes in sincerity of Christ whose carpenter shop is labor's cathedral— Rev. William Ruder, Congregationalist, San Francisco. Soul Development. The soul is developed from -within, but shaped from without. There is an exterior force belonging to the soul itself that may be culled the real cause of its development, but there are a multitude of outside influences that greatly affect the development.—Rev. t Thomas H. Utter, People's Church, Denver. Millions For Chewinc Gam. Tell me how a man gets his money, how he teeps it and how he spends it, and I will tell yon what kind of a man he is.

A Singular Sense of Pride. There are some persons who never change their minds, and they hold a place in tbe intellectual world exactly like people in the social world who go about the entire year without changing their linen. A man might just as well be proud of never having taken a bath. —Rev. Hugh 0. Pentecost, Carnegie Music Hall, New York.

If a man of Mr. Catne'fi talents would himself study the history of the Christian religion aud take its teachings into his soul and then would start out to write a hook portraying the Christian of the highest type, taking St. Paul, St. Peter, John Knox or any one of a tcore of others as that type, he would give to literature a vastly different and more valuable and truthful production than Mr. Caine has done. — Rev. S. Parke Cadman, Metropolitan Temple, New York Religion Torn In Part*. Is religion capable of being torn in parts? Can you add together the school, with its improved discipline, the home, the concert, the art gallery, the encyclopedia, the club, the ballot box — can yon add all these fragments and have as a result the church without ever needing to go inside a house of worship? I do not think so. — Eev. Edward F- Fowle, Unitarian, Boston. A Grave Situation.
