Another of those double numbers which the publishers of "The Youth's Companion" seem to delight in offering as a pleasant surprise to its readers comes to us this week. A careful reading of one of these special numbers makes it easy to understand why this favorite paper rarely loses an old friend and gains so many thousands of new admirers every year. Half a million copies of this, the March double number, are published. The funeral of Capt. Leonidas A. Cols who died at the hospital Saturday evening, will be held under G. A. R. auspices at tht, residence' of Judge D. B. McConnell this afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. E. S. Scott conducting the services. . Mr. Percy L.

The widow is confined to bed by illness and unable to attend the funeral. It is reported that.a man by the name of Wise living on Helm street, West Side, is guilty of a most atrocious and brutal .act. -Neighbors were aroused by the screams 'of a woman in Wise's house,, and an investigation found the brutal husband beating his wife, who to make the crime all the more henious. is. in a delicate condition. The .neighborhood in which the inhuman wretch resides is much worked up and the locality promises to be unhealthy for the wife beater. < A TERRIBLE FATALITY. uxKcll W. Trriax, Pan Handle Brakcmiiii, Meow a Terrible Death Itcueatli the Wheels. Yesterday morning about 11 o'clock a distressing fatality occurred in the the Pan'Handle yards. From the result o£ the accident Russell W. Truax, extra brakeman, died about three hours later. Truax was standing on the pilot of a switch engine which was backing onto a siding with an empty car. He cut the car loose from the engine then stepped off the pilot. As he did so his foot slipped and the unfortunate man fell in' front of the car which was following, its acquired momentum bringing it on with considerable force. The wheel caught Truax's right foot, crushing the leg below the knee in a horrible manner. The relentless wheels then crushed into his left groin and passing over the hip next caught the left arm which was mashed into a pulp below the shoulder. Both hands were terribly crushed. His head and body' escaped without a bruise. Among the witnesses of the dreadful scene was ya.rdmaster Sample who with others tenderly lifted the injured man on a stretcher and he was, taken to Dr. Stevens' office. It was seen that surgical skill would be powerless to save the man and attention was then turned to alleviating his dying agqny. With a wonderful nerve Truax retained .his consciouness almost to the last and laying in the doctor's office greeted a number of his comrades with a smile and told them all to take good 'care of themselves. He expressed a, desire that a minister be called and Rev. Dr. Birch was summoned and prayed earnestly for the dying man who joined in the fervent appeal and appeared tranqnil and even contented. With a nervous force that was really remarkable the terribly injured man lived for three hours, dying at 2:15. The body was then taken to Woll & Parker's undertaking establishment and prepared for burial. Russell Truax had been working for the railroad company but a few weeks and was engaged as "extra" at the yards. He was 23 years of age and unmarried. He was a pleasant young man, attentive to duty, quiet in. his manner and popular with his friends. His home was at Star City, whither his mangled body will be taken for burial this morning at 6 o'clock. . His mother, Mrs. Sarah Werrick, ; lives at Molinta, 0,, and was telegraphed immediately of the -fatal accident. H. A. Dunn, of Star City, brother-in-law of the deceased, arrived in response to a telegram, before the unfortunate young man died. proceedings of the Trade** a«<l tabor Assembly. Trades and Labor Assembly met in regular session on Sunday afternoon at Union Labor hall. A large number of delegates were present every Union being represented. Business of vital importance to the cause of Labor was transacted. The privilege of the floor was extended to Geo. Burkhart of the F. M. B. A., who spoke at length upon the subject of convict labor. He was listened to with undivided attention. A ?cte of thanks was extended to Mr. Burkhart for his address and also to the F. M. B. At for their efforts to abolish the contract prison labor. President Webster reported that the plans of the Assembly for public park had been adopted by the City .Council. This information was received with applause. 0. P. Smith from the committee on organization reported the formation of two new Unions. All Unions reported trade fair except the Coopers. The question of the petition that 'was sent by the Assembly to Senator Magee. was brought up and a lively time followed. Mr. Magee's action in the matter was denounced bitterly by several delegates. His treatment of the requests of organized labor was shown to be so unfair and contemptible that even his few friends could not defend his position. One of the delegates during the discussion ventured the assertion that Magee was not the whole Senate. Several of the members hastened to assure the gentleman that the people of Indiana were to be congratulated that he was not, and that it were better for Cass county if the Honorable (?) Senator was not a part of the State law-making body at all. Evidently the assembly will make a thorough expose of Magee's attitude toward organized labor and show him up in his true light for what he is, the tool of Monoply and the enemy of ther masses. The politician who trifles with, the demands of Organized Labor will sooner or later discover his mistake as the organizations are daily .gaining strength and will soon be able to enforce recognitions _^_ °' P ' S> New, gold and silver cord for dress trimming.—Golden-Rule.

Wilson, Humphreys & Co., 2OO and 2O2 Fourth St. Our Popular Flour. Flour is the most important thing we sell you and that we have .tried to. make ourselves the most popular. We selected a pink, sack and the brand "Snow Ball" as the trade .mark for the flour we were going to make popular. Then we came to the flour. Quality was the first thing we thought of. We wanted the whitest and. most satisfactory flour on the market, when we found it we warranted it. Price was another thing- 'of utmost importance we wanted a ..price which no one else could approach .on ,that quality of flour, and we found it "Snow Ball" at once became the popular flour of Logansport,, and of a hundred miles, around, and it is to-day. We buy it now in car-loads, and our buying price is low. Our selling price is.only $2.20.- per hundred. But you must get the right "Snow Ball'' to get. this price and this, quality. Others may imitate the brand, hut not the price, if their quality is right. The "Snow Ball" we have told you of' is only sold at ' M. McCaffrey & Co.
