Harrison Arrives Home from New York—His View of the Situation-—More Deviltry by AVhitecaps. Shoals, ]nd., Oct. 27.—After passing thronr-h an eventful and exciting lif* rind the rigors of eighty years, Stephen Horsey, one of the most famous characters uf Indiana's history, lies dying at the county poor asylum, four miles north of this city, unattended by relatives and friends and in old age penniless and deserted. In 18G4 Colonel ]>a.mbin Mulligan, Colonel Bowles, Horac? Heftron, Stephen Horsey and others were arrested, charged with high treason. The arrest created the greatest sensation and was the first discovery f the organization known as the Knights of the Golden Circle, which Is Kaid to have had treasonable purposes, and it is alleged that a number of guns and a quantity of ammunition were found concealed at a place three-quarters of a mile west of this city, known as the Harmony water tank. IIHI'ron Made » Confession. The men were taken to Indianapolis and cast into prison. This place was thrown into turmoil and excitement as several other well-known citizens were arrested, charged with being members of the organization, and as no one knew who would be the next victim neighbor regarded neighbor with suspicion and the soldiers sent to make arrests terrorized the town. The trials of the suspects were held before a military commission or court martial. The severe strain upon Horace HefTron, then a prominent attorney of Salem, Washington county, was too great for him, and he broke down and made a confession. The other men were convicted of treason and condemned to death by hanging. Morton Intervenes for Mercy. But Governor Oliver P. Morion interfered at this point, and although at first favoring conviction was now anxious for a modification of the sentence. Pardons wereoffered the men if applications were made, but Horsey and his companions refused. The case was then taken to the United States circuit court on a writ of habeas corpus. General Hovey declared that he would disregard the writ were it issued. The court failed to agree and the case was appealed to the United States supreme court, where the entire proceedings were declared unconstitutional and in direct violation of all law. The attorneys for the defendants, all of whom later became famous in the history of the T'nit- ed States-, included James A. Garfield, J. D. McDonald, John S. Black and David Dudley Field. The accused men were released and Stephen Horsey never mentions the case unless approached on the subject. GUN. HAKKISOX ARRIVES JIOMK. \Vhat Hti Has to Say About the Political StrugKle at Now York. Indianapolis, Oct. 27.—General Harrison and family arrived at noon yesterday from New York. In an interview relative to the campaign in New York the ex-president said that he knew nothing about the prospects of the campaign with so many parties in the field. "Any Information I obtained came chiefly from the New York papers from day to day. The Republicans whom I met geemed to feel that they were going to win. They appeared to be sincere in that belief, but how much they really know about it I cannot tell. General Tracy was my secretary of the navy, and he is a warm .personal friend. He Is a man of unusual ability, and J »m greatly interested in him. He made a great secretary- He is a man of integrity of character and of Independence. I felt a little resentful when I came here and heard some talk of General Tracy being somebody's tool. That Is an impossibility. He is capable in thf highest degree of administering the office of mayor if he is chosen, and has a high sense of public duty." General Harrison wa:? asked to give nn estimate of Henry George and as to his strength as a candidate. This he declined to do. Continuing he said: "I saw some of my old Republican friends who were supporting- Low and talked •with them. I have nothing to ?ay about Mr. Low. As to speeches, not talking about eloquence. General Tracy is making a strong campaign. The campaign is a tangle that nobody at -this time can tell anything about. It Is possible that In the days yet left there may be a turning of people from one to another of the candidates that will change the result greatly from any present indications." NOT DOXE OX THE ISI-AXTD OF CITBA. TTej-ler Will HUT* to Hnstl* or tlie Whitecaps Will Meat Him. Bloomington, Ind.. Oct. 27.—One of the most brutal outrages that has yet been perpetrated by whitecaps in thij section of the state occurred in the southern part of this county Sunday night, the victim being John Wright, a feeble old man. who has seen more than three score and ten years. Old age and rapidly declining health have made It impossible for "vTright to support his family in comfort for the past two years, and recently they have been receiving a scanty weekly allowance from the township trustee. The old man managed to work a little during the spring and summer, but this fall he became so •weak on account of the want of good, wholesome food that he could do nothing, and he and his wife were ;*.bout to become a charge upon the public. At a lot* hour at night a band oil twenty or thirty men appeared at hi!< ihouse, broke open the door of Wright's cabin, dragged him from bed and gave klm a. terrible beating with long hickory ••witches. The whitecaps wore masks ,»nd not a word passed between them ;»ntil Wright fell exhausted from the Voting-, when the leader exclaimed lirith an oath: "Now, go to work." iWhen court convened nfott morning pudgt Martin called the attention of the fraud Jurj: particularly, to. th,e outrage The Bird on Tour Hvt, The craze for birds on -women's hate is decidedly on the increase. The feathered kingdom is ransacked for tributes to headgear. They are of all kinds and sizes, from the owl to the humming bird. The only ones remaining that have not been utilized in this way are the bird of freedom, America's symbol, the eagle, and birds of prey, the vulture, the carrion crow, etc., and doubtless these will soon be the mode in the mad quest for novelty by brainless women and for money by greedy milliners. It would be such a decided sensation to perch a big crow or vulture on the head as a hat, skewered on with dagger pins. Can nothing be done to abate this shame on our civilization, this blot on the character of women? Is there no one who can wield the stinging lash of the satirist against this savage fashion? Is there none who can nse the silver tongued pleading of the orator for mercy Three generations of physical perfection! What robust strength and overflow- j to God's winged creatures? Must the Ing happiness ! What invincible advantage in the battle of life ! Have you inher- fashion go on till it dies for want of ited imperfections from your ancestors, or have your children inhented imperfections from you ? In the light of advanced science the taints of heredity have lost their terrors.

Heritage of Health. Generation after Generation of Physical Perfection-Weaknesses Overcome by Dr. Greene's Neryura for the Neryes and Blood. Dr. Greene's Nervura For the Nerves and Blood. Is your child weak and puny ? Does it grow tired when at play? Is it always peevish and dissatisfied ? Does it have poor appetite with bad breath and irregular bowels ? These symptoms indicate derangement of the nerves and blood, and if not overcome will handicap the child throughout life. Dr.Greene'sNerv- ura remedy for the nerves and blood is per- fectly adapted for the successful treatment of children. The Nervura is vegetable in compound and entirely harmless. It is not a patent medicine, but a scientific prescription evolved from years of special study and practice.^ It has effected more cures and received more commendations from people of prominence than any otuer remedy in the world.

When the kingdom of birds is wholly exterminated or specimens so rare they are worth their weight in. gold will there only then be surcease? The late illustrations show owls' heads as the latest garnitnire. They surmount tha hat. They trim the coat. They are perched on the muff. The owl has been known from early times as the bird of wisdom, and now it is chosen to adorn the head of the fool. Verily the satire of the conjunction shines out of the solemn visages glaring about the costume. —New Orleans Times-Democrat.

J?or such a club as this, developed along the lines of ease, of relaxation, of pure vacuity if one wished, with exemption and not responsibility as its first privilege, above all with abundant inclination in the souls of its members toward nothing but that profitable idleness which, as Mr. Stevenson says, consists not so much in doing nothing as in doing a great deal that is not usually recognized as work—for such a club I would be almost willing to become a propagandist! For here no insidious desire for work would be allowed to masquerade under the guise of recreation, and no amount of recreation would serve to carry any ulterior purpose of self improvement. There would be luncheon for luncheon's sake, and women would sit down to eat it, greedy and unashamed. And you may be sure there would be no papers read and no members fined because they were not there to listen to them. Thus a normal and natural intercourse would be promoted in which the self improvement, though incidental and half unconscious, would be real and permanent, because developed upon the plane on which one customarily dwells.—"The Unquiet Sex," by Helen Watterson Moody, in Scribner's. nations, including Dr. Ferguson, super- j day unless the operators decide to adopt imendent of the city hospital. Dr. Fer- j tne check-off system of dues for the guson is a "sound money" Democrat, against whom nothing else can be found by the free silver supports of Taggart, who want him ousted. About fifty physicians, headed by Dr. Marsee. one of the leading physicians of the state, have called upon Mayor Taggart and protested against the removal of Ferguson. Taggart assured them of nothing, but says that the place will be filled by a good man. He WH.H Converted by Hinslmw Shelbyville. Ind., Oct. 27.—Less three years ago Benjamin Johnson, of this county, stole a horse and was sentenced to two years at Jeffersonville. When the Rev. William E. Hinshaw, the convicted wife-murderer, entered the United Mine Workers. The operators say they will r.ot do this, as some of their members do not belong to the organization, and it would be unjust to take the dues out of their pay. Presidential Appointments.

The Woman's Journal says: Mayor Harrison of Chicago has intrusted the promised revolution in down town street cleaning to the management of a woman. To Mrs. A. E. Paul has been given the task of redeeming Chicago's main thoroughfares. When Mrs. Paul marshaled a troop of 25 men in military order, with brooms perched upon their shoulders, down Washington street, the work of keeping down Jown streets and crossings free from refuse was begnn. Henceforth business men and citizens will see discipline in the street cleaning force. Mayor Harrison is determined to have clean streets and sanitary conditions in the alleys. Unless all signs fail, Mrs. Paul will be Chicago's Colonel Waring. She will have complete charge of all the street cleaning and garbage forces in the business district. The Atlanta Journal says: She is the only woman in the world at the head of a street cleaning force, and if she succeeds in her ambition to make Chicago a olean city she will deserve a monument A woman who does a work like that is greater than she who shines at a gennan or wins first prize at a bicycle tourney.

If you were to stand at my door for an hour or two, you'd be surprised to see the swell girls who come in to mate purchases. There is a certain brand •which they all seem to have an especial liking for. It is evident that in this respect they are iicting in concert. There is a certain club of up town girls, a smokers' clnb, which, to my personal knowledge, recently passed resolutions adopting this particular brand as the official cigarette of the club."
