Many were the expressions of sad surprise when OQ Sunday afternoon, news of the sudden death of Mrs. Nancy McCord passed through the city. Her whole life had been remarkably free from sickness, Sunday morning at half-past nine o'clock she was suddenly stricken down -with heart disease. The deceased was the daughter of Thomas and Margaret Cook, and was born in Frederick county Maryland in 1812. In 1834. she removed with her family to Clark county, Ohio. In 1S38 she was married to Wm McCord, and came with him to this city in 1S56. Her husband's death occurred in 1SG4. The only near relatives lejt to mourn her departure are her six children: Mrs. F. M. Spraker, Mrs. J. W. Fuller and W. H. McCord of this city; Mrs. Parker Liddell, Margaret E. and Champbell McCord, of Chicago. For 60 years Mrs. McCord had been a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal church. Her life was a model of purity and noble Christian character. One who knew her well said, "The world was better because she had lived in it." The number who loved her was limited only by the number who knew her. Those who were in need of aid or sympathy never applied to her in vain. In her home-life she was especially faithfuly. devoted and affectionate. The sweet and blessed influence of her home-life has not yet done the perfect work. "When the mists have rolled in splendor from the beauty of the hill." then, and only then, will the results of her noble life be manifest. The funeral will be conducted from her former home on High street, Wednesday afternoon at half-past two o'clock. Deatli'K Harvest. The funeral of John Bollay, who died at his home on the South Side, Friday night, will be held at St. Joseph church this morning at 9 o'clock. Allie, infant daughter of Phillip E. Ross o'f Noble township, died at 11 o'clock Saturday p. m. of membranous croup. The funeral was held, at the Shiloh church yesterday atl p. m. Deborah A. Simpson, of Clay township, died yesterday morning at 3 o'clock of paralysis aged 74 years. The funeral will be held at the Spring creek church at 11 o'clock to-day, Rev Boston officiating. Miss Mable Philbric died at the home of her. grandmother, Mrs. Thos. Castle, in Noble township, at 5 o'clock yesterday morning, of consumption, aged 15 years. The funeral will be held from the residence to-day at 10 a. m., services by Rev. Kramer, burial at Mt. Hope. E. J. Hamilton, late book keeper for the Hardy-Metzger company, died last evening at Long Cliff hospital where he had been confined for the past year or more. The deceased was a member of Eel River Lodge, I. 0. 0. F. and leaves a wife and two children. His home was at 310 Montgomery street, South Side, whither' the remains were take last night. The date of the funeral will be made later. The body of the stranger who vas supposed to have commitj ed suicide at Royal Cenaer on Thursday last was buried yesterday ,fternoon. No further clue to his dentity was discovered and the mys- eryofhis death will perhaps never disclosed. A "mysteriously miss- ng'" sensation will probably interest some other distant community and the ,wo parts of the narrative will never )e connected, A more complete in- •estigation of the case was made by a Journal reporter yesterday afternoon and a photograph of the dead man vas obtained. He was about lifty ears of age. weighed about 150 sounds, was five feet seven inches ,all, had gray hair, thin on top and in 'ront, a heavy blonde mustache, three upper front false teeth and wore a good business suit,' light over- Mat of dark brown color, gaiters and overshoes, a soft black felt hat, stand up collar, white shirt and black necktie. On his caffs was the word "Pugh" written in indelible ink. In lis pockets were an open-faced, stem- winding gold watch, fifteen dollars in noney, a four bladed, white handled penknife and a pill box containing ;wo capsules of quinine as a chemical analysis made for the Journal showed. He was not accustomed to manual labor and his appearance indicated that lie was a successful business man. No morphine was found about his person or among his effects and nothing which' might have contained it was discovered. Specimen Cuoex. S. H. Clifford.

Keesling's Drug store. tolo AViJl Leave loKn " Dr. Frank Overholser has sold his residence property on Seventh street to Godfrey Twellfi preparatory to leaving Logansport. The doctor is compelled to take this step on account of his health which has been failing him. His doctors instructed him to seek a more salubrious climate and the doctor has selected as a point of residence Asheville, South Carolina, and will dej part within a week for that place. The announcement of this step is received with sincere regret .by the many friends of the doctor and his pleasant wife who are very popular in Logansport society and will be greatly missed. All hope however that the move is for the best and that the doctor's health may be permanently ben- fited by it. ' Sl»c was Completely Cnrcd.

The costumes were elegant and the specialty work was fair. --The worst thing about the company is the bills it carries, and which the police ordered taken down here. Gratifying 10 All,' 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.

A large audience should greet that deservedly popular play "Held by the Enemy," at Dolan's opera house, Feb. 19. It is not too much to say that ••Held by the Enemy" is dramatically one of the strongest and most intensely interesting plays before the public. The scene is laid in a Southern city during the war for tl>e Union and the flavor of war incidents and romance render it thrillingly exciting. The author has been fortunate in so constructing his play that it does not appeal lo sectional prejudice, but is as popular with the veteran who wore the gray and the one who wore the blue. The necessary love story is well told and fittingly developed, and the element of comedy so essential to the success of every drama enters largely into its composition. Few modern plays have been so well adapted to the popular idea as this work of Mr. Gillette's, The company- is good without exception, and the piece is given a most artistic representation. This is not the ingenious opinion of the ubiquitous advance agent, but an honest recognition of a worthy play, whose well-earned fame precedes it. POOR TALKERS'. Great >It-;i Who Were Deficient In Conversational Power. Many of our greatest men seem to have been singularly deficient in the power of conversation. Even those noted for their great wit, and for the sparkling- gems of thought thrown out to an admiring world on paper, have been so dull and stupid in conversation that thofe who knew thorn personally coulc! never understand their right to be called clever: but wit on paper is a very different thing- from wit on the tongue's end, ready to drop oft' at the owner's will, without time for preparation or remodeling, charming all listeners as much by its spontaneity as by its sparkle. We can scarcely believe when reading "Hudibras.'' overflowing, as it does, with wit and humor, that its author, Bvitier, was the dullest and most stupid companion imaginable; but such was the case. That Addison, whose "classic intelligence", charms yon, and after whom you have endeavored to model your own style, was shy and absent in society. That La Fontaine is really the author of those witty fables that you have read and laughed over—La Fontaine who was almost totally deficient in conversational powers, as though he sold all his thoughts to his publishers. Corneille, the great French dramatist, was so completely lost and embarrassed in society, that he wrote a witty couplet on himself to the eifect that he was intelligent only through the mouth of another. One of our greatest novelists was so tiresome in society* that a friend said of him: ' ; I must go and read his tales in recompense to myself for the weariness of hearing- him converse." Fortunate is he who can so recompense his. friends. After roaming- with Milton through "Paradise Lost" and "Paradise Regained," we are astonished to find that he was unsocial and sarcastic. That Dance was taciturn and satirical we attribute to the fact that Beatrice jilted him. which had the usuf 1 and very natural effect of souring- his uisposition; hence, we regard his fault with leniency. We are told that Gray seldom talked or smiled. Perhaps talking so little accounts for the deep thoughts embodied in his "Elegy in a Country Churchyard;" and, as for his not smiling-, we forgive him for that mistake when we remember that a man may smile and smile and be a villain. - Melancthon, the contemporary of Luther, was so shy and so easily embarrassed that once when attempting to preach to a large house he could get no further than the text, and kept repeating that—'Teed my sheep." Luther, who. fortunately was at his side, told him to sit down and he would perform his duty for him. He obeyed, and right gladly too, no doubt. We might mention many more great men who have been wall flowers in the parlor, but who shone as "bright, particular stars'" in the library, and the latter being the more endurable, and consequently the more to be envied position, we reserve our pity for those who have greater necessity for it— those of the present day who may not hope to shine either in parlor or library. —N.
