The Lute Rev. Joseph Cliestcr. The remains of Rev. Joseph Chester who died at the residence of his son- in-law, Mr. J. C. Hadley on Ninth street Thursday night, well be taken to Cincinnati this morning at 6 o'clock for interment. The funeral services will be held at the Spring Grove chapel at that place this afternoon at 8 conducted by Rev. Dr. Morris. Interment in the Spring Grove^cemetery. The death of Rev. Joseph Chester closes a useful life. For lifty-two years he was in the active ministry and only ceased to labor in the pulpit last July, the infirmities of age. rendering his continuance of the active work impossible. . He was born at New London, Conn., October 13, 1815, where he was reared uni.il he was thirteen years of age. At that time his. father removed to Rome, Ohio. The deceased was a graduate of Oberlin College ' and entered the ministry in 1839. His ministry was confined to two Presbyteries, the Cincinnati and the Sciota. In 1838 Mr. Chester was united in marriage to Miss Hannah McMaster, of Cincinnati, who. with three children survive him. Their -golden wedding was celebrated three years ago the coming May. For the past year 'Rev.. Chester and wife had made their home with their daughter, Mrs. J. C. Hadley, and the death of the pioneer preacher is mourned by many friends in this city. The son and daughter reside at Cincinnat whither the remains will be taken for burial. Director* Meeting. The Mutual Loan and Saving Association of this city met Thursday evening and elected the following directors: Jno. C. Nelson, Chas. Starr, Terrence McGovern, W. A. Osmer. Henry Brookmeyer, Arthur McTaggart, Robt. Humphreys, 0. B. Sargeant, T. R. Sewell. ' The board organized by electing the following officers: President, J. C. Nelson; treasurer, Terrence McGovern: secretary, Robt. Humphreys. A Painful Accident. Patrick Corcoran, a freight brakeman on the Indianapolis Division, had his right hand so badly crushed Thursday evening while making a coupling on the yard siding that amputation was necessary. Dr. J. B. Sbultz, the company's surgeon performed the amputation, aud the injured man departed to bis home at Indianapolis to recover the effects of his fearful injury. Dr. and Mrs. Frank Overholser went to Greenville, 0., yesterday where they will visit a few days he- fore their, final departure to Asheville,. S. C., where they, will hereafter make their rgsidence. Hosts of friends here hope the worthy- .couple success in their new location and trust that the change may be -beneficial to the doe- tor's health. . I«cslslative Notes. ' Indianapolis News: The agriculturist's interests were early on .the floor. Mr. Magee had a memorial from the F. M. ,B.

Tlic Bo«l.V of ihe "Unknown" Royiil ('outer Suicide at JLaM Fully Identified. HlMlVunic Was W. C. Push, n Hfun Whom Disease and Oow enci- LiCil to Suititlo, The mystery shrouding' the case of the man who- died from the effects of an overdose of morphine at Hopkinson's boarding house at Royal Center on the evening of the 12th last., bus at last been cleared away by the complete identification of the body of the deceased, which was exhumed on Thursday at the request o f Win. M. Gage, of Chicago, general traffic manager of the Chicago, Rock Island it Paciffc railway, in whose employ the deceased had been for some time previous to his death. Atter the body was satisfactorily identified it was laid again in the grave and earth once more hid from view the body, but mystery no longer concealed the identity of all that was mortal of an unfor tun ate man. The man'j name was William C. Pugh and his residence was Chicago, where he boarded with Mrs. M. Forbes, who kept a boarding house on west Madison street. He left Chicago on the 10th inst., saying that he was going to Aurora, Ills., to be gone week or more on business. Pugh had mining interests in Colorado, so had Mr." Gage. The lattei employed Pugh to look after his mining interests and it was thus that Gage was able to establish the identity of the "unknown."' Mrs. Forbes,- the boarding housi keeper, noticed in the Chicago papers an account of the mysterious death at Royal Center and the clue of the cutt marked "Pugh." Her suspicions were aroused and she wrote to Mr. Hopkinson at Royal Center, enclosing a latch key and a cuff marked "Pugh" stating that if the deceased was the man she thought a duplicate of these articles would be found with his effects. It was as she surmised and upon being informed that her suspicions were verified she went to Mr. Gage, in whose employ she knew Pugli to be, and . laid the case ,before him. Mr. Gage went to Royal Center on Thursday and the body was identified as above stated. Mr. Gage said that the deceased had long been a sufferer from consumption and his bodily condition together with a recent business disappointment had made him despondent to such a degree that the fact of his suicide was not surprising. A Winamac druggist recognized the body as that of a man who had purchased some morphine from him on the Tuesday preceeding Pugh's arrival at Royal Center, the same day that he left Chicago. He was next recognized by C. N. Watson the station agent at Star City who saw the man walking in from the north and after enquiring the distance to Royal Center starto d out walking again. He arrived at Center on Wednesday, went to Hopkinson's boarding house, paid for two day's board in advance, retired early at night and the next morning was found in an unconscious condition apparently suffering from an overdose of morphine. He died that evening. Nothing was found on his person to identify him and the only clue, which, by the way, finally led to his identification, was the word "Pugh." on his cuffs. His body was kept for several days but was buried on Monday. The rest is related above. The deceased is said to have been quite well-lo-do and was a widower. He has two daughters living at Louisville, Ky. His father lives at Lancaster, O. A Beau of 1829. When grandpa went a-wooing. Ho wore a satin vest, A trail of running roses Embroidered on the breast.

Grandpa was a fine-looking youog fellow then,.so the old ladies say, and he is a fine-looking old gentleman now. For the past score of years be has been a flrm believer in the merits of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. 'It renewed my youth," he frequently says. It is the only blood-purifier and liver invigorator guaranteed to benefit or cure, or money refunded. It cures liver disease, dyspepsia, scrofulous sores, skin eruptions, . and all diseases of. the blood. For lingering coughs and consumption, (which is lung-scrofula in its early stages) it is an unparalled remedy. Gratifying to 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 tnown, illustrate : the : value of .the qualities on which, its success is based and are abundantly gratifying to the" California Fig. Syrup Company. . A Cord. The personal attacks that have been made by one of our competitors are unwarranted and only go to show that he is unable to meet his- • competitors in combat of prices. Being out-done, he becomes sadly disappointed and se.eks to show his enmity and spleen in personal attacks. We feel ourselves above personalities and would only have given his article in the Pharos of last evening a passing thought, had he been truthful. Cur- sales on Granulated Sugar alone were very large on Thursday so much so that at 7 o'clockp.m. we found our supply exhausted. But knowing that are third car of sugar for February would arrive yesterday morning, we asked -our trade to wait for it and we would give them 2'Hh for one dollar. Ten barrels were disposed of yesterday morning at this extraordinary low price. As to our purchasing sugar from our competitor his assertions made in last evenings paper is incorrect as we purchased no sugar from him but sent him buyers. Rumor has it though that many dealers secured all told about five barrels of hi* Granulated alone. If other grocery men saw proper to make a fish out of our neighborly competitor he is not justified in crying Wolf at us. Seem- iagly it appears to us that our competitor has realized that he is lacking in ability to cope with first class merchants hence his vile attacks. It would please us very much to quote him special prices on anything- and everything he handles in view of selling him merchandise and trad in amicably together for we are satisfied that if he will purchase from us we will, save him money. M. McCAFEUEY & CO. Stanley III St. Anne, 111., Record: As was announced last week, 3. B. Stanley o: Logansport, Ind., opened a series of gospel temperance meetings at the Second Presbyterian church last Thursday night, to continue for nine or ten nights, Mr. S. is an able and forcible talker. He is accompanied by Mr. Powell, a cornet player, which makes the meetings very interesting. And so they are, too. From the first up to the present the church is crowded every night and much interest is manifested. Mr. S. comes highly recommended as a temperance worker and is fully verified judging from the work in that line that is being done here by him. Ii matters not whether any one is fully in harmony with Mr. Stanley's views on this qiies- tion or not, it will do anybody good to g_o and hear him. He speaks on the .liquor question from a non-political and a -non-sectarian point of view, which makes his lectures all the more interesting. Up to going to press 355 have signed the pledge here, and a goodly number more are expected before the meetings close. Clay Townslilp. Prayer meeting at Bethel every Tuesday night. • Dr. John Wilds is back from a few weeks sojourn in the south. Mrs. S. D. Shilling is at the death .bed of her mother, in Rochester. Mrs. W.

Grand-pa Roher is lying seriously ill at the koine of his son John. His recovery is doubtful. The F. A. and the F. M. B. A. have organized good lodges . in this township. May much good result from their organization. Worlli ItK Weight In Gold. If a price cau be placed on pain, "Mother's Friend" is worth its weight in gold as an alleviator. My wife suffered more in ten minutes with either of her other two. children than she did all together with her last, having previously used four bottles of 'Mother's Friend." It is a blessing to any one expecting to become a mother, says a cusomer of mine. HENDERSON DALE, Druggist, Carmi, Illinois. Write the Bradfield Regulator Co., Atlanta, Ga., for further particulars.

CLOTH tops are again being accorded a considerable degree of popularity in both men's and women's goods. Cloth is superior to leather in e\ ery way except durability, and ever, in that it holds its own in some cases as against some of the leather used for tops. Cloth is the best material for shoe tops ia ,. the case of persons whose feet have a tendency to perspire freely, as the surplus heat of the foot as well as its moisture is allowed to radiate and transpire, thruug-h the meshes of the textile fabric much more readily than though.the leather. Good cloth is not materially affected by moisture, and excels leather , used for toppings in resisting its attacks. Cloth does nof crack, scale, turn red or grow stiff and chafe the wearer. It is more comfortable and smooth fitting- than leather. It makes a handsome effect by contrast when used with leather- vamp. It is more "dressy," and, in fact, as we said at the outset, better for toppings than the leather generally used in everyway, providing a first-class" quality of cloth is employed. There are cloth fabrics sold for shoe tops that are not desi.able, just as there are^kinds of leather used for shoe soles that are-. not desirable: some being cheap and poor quality, for use in cheap shoes, and some being fine quality and intended more for appearance than wear. There is a grade of cloth for every grade of shoe, and the best grades are more expensive than fine leather. The patterns vary from plain black to fancy figured. .
