A. famous 5,000 mile Interchangeable mileage ticket which is issued by tho Lake Shore and Michigan South, ern railroad which is sold for $100 or 3 cents per mile and. which is now good ovor a series of twenty^three roads, was first put in force in 1888 through the influence and suggestion of the T. P. A. of U. S. A. J. Smith, general passenger agent of the Lakeshore and Michigan Southern, writes that the ticket has given and proved in every respect satisfactory to both tho roads interested and their patrons since its Introduction. It has a photographic Identification requirement, but is not good to pay either transfer or excess.baggage charges as is the Big Four route ticket. Commercial travelers who read this item should write to A. J. Smith, G. P. A. Lake Shore & Michigan Southern railroad, Cleveland, Ohio, and thank him for bis friendly disposition toward their interests and encourage him to aid in extending his ticket throughout the United States.

The home of Mrs. J B. Grover, corner of Canal and Second streets, was robbed in the family's absence last night presumably about 9 o'clock. The robbery wai only discovered when Mrs. Grover returned home about 9:30. A trunk in the hallway was found to be forced open and rifled, the contents being scattered in every direction. A pocket book containing $23 in cash and papers valuable only to the owner, which had been in the trunk, was the only article missed. The trunk was the only piece of furniture disturbed so far as could be discovered, and it is thought the thief, who entered by a parlor window made his way directly to the trunk, forced it opetf, secured what he desired ar.d quietly withdrew. There was nothing for the police, who were at oace called in, to work on, as no traces were left by the burglar, that would be of any assistance in discovering him. Taken to the Prlion r.'ortli.

Keeport &Co., is the name that has been several times used at the base line of State bank checks this week by a young map who endorsed the paper with the signature of E. S. Smith. Ho first tried to work off a §7.50 check at three different milly Inery establishments, finally succeeding. Friday he was again found to bo at work, though the matter was not reported until yesterday when the attaches of the Bridge City drug store Btated that a $50 check on A. B. Keeport & Co. had been presented and refused by them because It was evidently a forged signature. The peo- pie at the Bridge City drug store read the daily papers. Postmaster Hanaws.lt, was. also offered a check for $50 by the young mnn named Smith, but the official refused to accept the check In payment for a money order for a small gum, and told the supposed swindler to get the paper cashed elsewhere. The check was adorned with the forged signature of A. B. Koeport & Co. air. Jordan Han Hid Sty, Peru Chronicle: The late State gas insoector, Mr. Jordan, hits the speculators in the gas belt, who were Instrumental in having the office obliterated which he occupied, a hard blow in the following: vThe men who aoollshed my office are afraid to have the condition in the gas belt shown up. It would hinder the sale of corner lots. It won't be four years before Indiana practically will be without gas, and they know it." He ia firmly persuaded that the natural gaa production of this State will cease In about four years. They Aro Beloved Far Above Qogbaad or Wlfo. The moral and social law of Japan is: "Thou shalt love thy father and mother with all thy heart, mind and strength." The Japanese wil'e loves her own parents more than she docs hor husband', and a Japanese husband loves his wife with nn affection far weaker than that which he bestows on his own father and mother. Mr. TJcaru, in "Glimpses of Unfamiliar Japan," quotes this conversation, in a schoolroom, between the English teacher and a Japanese pupil: "Teacher, 1 have been told that if a European and his father and his wife woro all to fall into the. sea together, and that he only could swim, he would try to save his wife first. \Yould lie, really?" "Probably,"replied the teacher. "But why?'' "One- reason is that Europeans consider it a man's duty to help the weaker first—-especially women and children." "And does a European love his wife more than his father and mother?" "Not always—but generally, perhaps, he does." "Why teacher, according to our ideas that is very Immoral." A lad of sixteen wrote a composition On "European and Japanese Customs," in which he gave expression to his ideas about the relation of husband and wife as held in Europe: : "What we think very strange is that in Europe every-wife loves her husband more than her pwents. In Nippon there Is no wife who more loves not her parents than her husband. And Europeans walk out in the road with their wives, which we utterly refuse to, except at the festival of Hachiman. "Tho Japanese woman is treated by man as a servant, while the European woman is respected as a master. I think these customs are both bad. We think it is very much trouble to treat European ladies; and we do not know why ladies are so much respected by Europeans." HE HAD PLUCK. boy away, ho hopped off his perch and. came over to my side and said: "Say, mister, help me off with these thing's, will you?" He threw his cap under tho seat an'd. I unbottoned the pea jacket and the hot, stiff logging, and held them on my. knee, wondering what would follow. I Tho palo littlo boy guvo his curls a shake and sprang 1 at the other with sur- 1 prising agility. Together they rolled' on the lloor of tho car, and b«foro wo' could separate them tho littlo boy with. 1 the blonde curls would never have been) recognized by his mother. But he shed no tears. Ho put on his coat, hung the leg-gins over his arm, rmd climbed up beside me. Then he re-marked: "Say, mister, I'd a slugg-cd that fellow, if he hadn't got a grip on my hair." When that boy got oft th» car I gave him tho price of a hnir cut, and told! him to pfo home with a closely cropped head. J hope his mother will forgive me, but it's a shnroo to grow curls on a' boy like that. WH'AT D'A R W IN" O V ERLOO K E D. Solf-Siicrlflco H«?lrt to Ho n r»ctor In the Evolution of rinnt Life. Some objection has been made, and, apparently with some weight, that the modern doctrine of the evolution of plants, liased on selfishness, is not by nny means the rule prevailing' in vegetation—flowers, as well as members of the animal world, seem to be governed in quite ns great a part by self-sacrifice os by selfishness, says Median's Monthly. Though the striipule for life, as it is called, and tho "survival of the fittest", must have something to do with the, evolution of form, and must bo necessary to the existence of plants individ-. uaDy, yet it is evidently not so to all/ In human natuns selfishness is a trait which cnnaot bo loft uncultivated. At the s:ime time n, large part of human > nature find.s jvist as much pleasure in little deeds which must come under the clnss of st'lf-socr'fioe as in the pursuit of .anything that way have relation to the slrugple for existence. As an illustration of this point in plants, the production of turpentine by the southern pine trees comes in. If the pine trees arc left alone the production of turpentine is comparatively small, but when tapped and made to produce tho turpentine for the benefit of man it goes on producing- without the tree ia the least suffering-. The annual product of turpentine by -the southern pine trees is some ten million dollars, which: it seems to hand over to tho uses ot man without the slightest injury to it-' self. In no way can it be shown that the production of turpentine isabcn.elit to the pine tree, T HE SEVEN STA R S. A Strange Suporntltlon of the Ancient In its account of the Salvation Army proceedings in that city, recently, the Lafayette Journal stated tbat "One thousand dressmakers were rescued in a single year." The copy was "drunkards," but the compositor deciphered the word otherwise and loud is the protest of the Salvationists orer tne error. Even If tb* Poor T.lctlo Chjtp WM Droned u Little Lord F«HDtleroy. 'The poor little chap wore a heavy pea jacket of blue cloth, mounted with brass buttons, a large red tie which tickled his peaked face, and leather leg-gins, which covered up the rest of him, except his long- golden curls. On the top of those he wore a blue sailor cap. His, mother, says the New York Herald, gave him to a Third avenue car conductor, with injunctions to set him off somewhere, and then went to a shop on Grand street. Later on, a boy of Ms own age, but dressed in knickerbockers and woolen stockings, squeezed beside him on the seat and pulled one of his curls. The little boy with the g-olden hair gr^ied weakly, but had as much chance wkretaliatc as a trussed chicken, and when I looked over at ^JTTI .and warned the other In ancient Egypt the body of Osiri» was always sealed up in the ark dur^ ing the month of November, bccaustf the people believed that the seven start were seven brothers sailing- their ship* across the sky and carrying- with them the souls of the dead.
