Anderson, Ind.. Oct. 20.—The eastern part of the county has been overrun •with rats during the past six months. Thousands of them have colonized over a radius of six or ssven miles. The farmers have been lighting them in every way possible, but they continue to multiply and are taking everything in sight. One rat-killing record that has been made was twenty-lour rats by Superintendent Heagfty «f the poor farm, who only discharged his sun four times. Several other records have been rc.ade at other times. They are ousting the farmers many hundred dollars by undermining wheat bins and burrowing into buildings of all kinds. Spring Weather in Eastern Indiana, The spring weather which has prevailed In eastern Indiana this fall has nature wofully mixed up. Attorney F. A. Walker 1 and Myron Miller, of this city, ate strawberry shortcake Wednesday. The strawberries were picked from their gardens and enough more will be ripe for another treat tomorrow. John Noland, a farmer east of the city, has an orchard that is in bloom and the cherry trees are covered with small cherries. Apple trees, peach trees and Tines are In Dloom. There art- new green tomatoes on the vines. More of the Sumo at Shelhyville. Shelbyville, Ind., Oct. 30.—Jake Haehl, a dairyman who lives on the east side of this city, has Quite a curiosity in his orchard In the way of a cherry tree. A number of weeks ago the tree shed its leaves, just as do all cherry trees later in the season. In the course of a number of days the tree put out new buds, the young leaves grew rapidly, and in due course of time the tree was in full bloom. Contrary to the general run of cases of this kind, the bloom remained on the tree, and now Haehl has a second crop of cherries that are as large as buck-shot and bid fair to get ripe, if they are not blighted by a cold spell, as they are perfectly healthy. The tree is a young tree, bearing its first crop at the regular time this summer. It has been noticed In this city during the past few days that many catalpa trees are putting out a second growth of foliage. TROUBLE LIKELY AT THIS MINE. Owners Have Brought Men from Kentucky to Replace Strikers. Washington, Ind., Oct. 30.—After fail- Ing to induce their miners to accept the scale price as fixed for Indiana, together with the former price of removing dirt, Cabel & Co., have obtained new men to operate the mines. The mines have been closed for nearly six months. Fourteen colored miners and six white miners have arrived from Kentucky, and are now camping on the company's property at mine No. 9. They are placing the mine in shape to take •ut coal, and will begin mining in a few days. No trouble Is anticipated from the striking miners so long as the injunction kolds good. A motion is pending to re- Miove the Injunction, on which Judge Heffron will hear argument. Should the injunction be dissolved serious trouble may be apprehended. The new men, however, are determined to work, and they assert that they will not allow the •trlklng miners to run them'out. EVIDENTLY LACKS MORAL SENSE.

Oct. 30. — The water level of Sylvan lake, at Rome City, the •well-known Indiana resort, is being reduced four feet, temporarily, by the Grand Rapids and Indiana road, which controls the outlet.

Sot Makin leM, Whet-Is For Fun— Evil Re»ultg of th« Carved Back Fositloc In Riding— Old Idea* Find New Favor. There arc at least a dozen prominent manufacturers who will ^-.:ikc chainloss wheels for the coming ,-.*"jn. An effort will lie made to establish a standard price of $125. but it is said that there will OL- chainless wheels nt lower figures down to $50. Although the guarantee of the ovcJe board of trade is but 00 days, manufacturers of the new style of whcclM intimate that they will be liberal when it comes to deciding questions of defective material or workmanship. A loading manufacturer claims everything for a chainless wheel which seems ro be simple in construction, but which apparently depends upon ao- .curate construction. Tho pedals turn a beveled cos. which, in turn, acts on a rod which extends to the axle of the rear wheel. This rod has at each end a beveled cog. one fitting the cog on the axle of tho pi;dal and the other fitting a similar beveled cog on the axle of the rear wheel. The pedals, therefore, transmit the power by the turning of the rod in its casing between tho gearing of the pedals and tho gearing of the rear axle. If this wheel wears and is easier to repair than tha regulation chain wheel, there is no doubt that it will gain a groat following in a short; time. An least one manufacturer was ready to put the chainless wheel on the market early this year, but while cycle shows were in progress absolutely no interest was displayed in ic by the public. It was a. step in advance of the times then, and it now remains to be seen if the riders will want it next year. As a rule riders of the bicycle are keen to take up a new thing, and just now the cycling public is displaying more genuine interest in chain- less wheels than it ever has before. The boNY back position necessitated by dropped handle burs is receiving severe criticism from all sources. The doctors 6ay that it is conducive to appendicitis. In bicycle riding a large number of the muscles of the body are called into plar, and so far as there is no strain on any one the exercise is beneficial. But there is a strain which is familiar to all wheel men a.nd women, and especially to those who ride hard. Tho strain is felt chiefly in the region about the vraist. Tho curved position of the body intensifies the strain. The vermiform appendix is attached to the intestine al; the right side of the body, the incision made by the surgeon in performing the operation for appendicitis being about an inch from the edge of tho hip bone. If the appendix is in a perfectly healthy condition, it is doubtful whether bicycle exercise would affect it. Unfortunately, however, it often is not. When the appendix is in an enfeebled condition, any violent exercise which brings an un- No preacher m the world is so widely known as Dr. Talinauc and no oilier place of worship is so throned'as die TiilniagcCUurtlj in \Vaih- intrton, I). C. The groat divine's discourses on tin: maintenance of health are the sure guide lor t.'ic people, and no'.v his distinguished associate preacher and co-worker, the eminent Byron Sundcrland, D. D., of tho Talniag-e Church, follows out the same srand line of good to the people hv pointing out to them how health can lie regained and restored when lost, — how the jihvsically weak and prostrated, the nerve weakened and brain weary, may recover strength; how the tired out, bver-worlccd and over-strained systems can be rebuilt; how the sufferer from weak nerves, poor blood, headache, rheumatism, neuralgia,— the exhausted man, the prostrated woman, the nervous child, the restless infant,— all can secure again the! health and strength that has been lost. j The distinguished clergyman tells how people; within his knowledge have been restored to health by the wonderful medicine, Dr. Greene's; N'jrvura" blood and nerve remedy, and he bids j all who are in any way out of health, all who; need medicine to use immediately this grand; health restorer, Pr. Greene's Nervura. He! tells you that it will cure 3-011 as it has cured; so many others, for he has personal knowledge; uf Dr.'Greene's Nervura and its marvelous power to cure disease, to banish pain, to make: the sick well. i The sreat preacher says: i "I have learned with'satisfaction from many; sources the beneficence of Dr. Greene's Nervura ; blood and nerve remedy and its great utility to; the many sufferers from the over-exhaustion I and prostration of the human system, in out intense American life." •• 1 do not hesitate to say it seems to supply a real want which no other known remedy can fill. It seems to be a real boon, bringing rest and refreshment to the outworn human frame in the tumultuous and trying times in which we live." BYRON SUNDEKLAND.

Fit* Causos Trouble in the Elks. Kokomo, Ind., Oct. 30.—Tuesday night the Marion Elks initiated Bob Fitzsim- rnons while he was in that place.

Indianapolis, Oct. 30. — Governor Mount, who has been at his farm for several days, said the wheat crop in the winter-wheat belt promises to be almost a total failure next year. "During the recent trip to my farm my investigations convinced me that one-third of thewheat in what is called the winter-w-heat belt has cot sprouted." Jfow I-«t the Sheriff HU.HR Him.

Minneapolis, Oct. 30.—A special from Walker, Minn., says: A courier just arrived from Cross lake, whence came the news of a shooting affray between the game wardens, reports that the dispute arose between the game wardens and an Indian relative to the latter's hunting. The warden struck the Indian over the head with a, club. Another Indian and his wife tried to stop the Wow, when the gamewarden fired on both of them.

London has bad a. wedding on wheels It was described as a novelty and an inno vation on the recognized order of man-lag festivities. By and by we may see tb bridal carriage entirely superseded by cy cles. Of course the white satin, with cour train, -would have to be discarded in favo of a neat white cycling costume; also th veil and wreath of orange blossoms migh be difficult to control on a breezy day, an could with advantage be left at the bride' home.

It is curious to note how old ideas resurrect. A few years ago wide handle bars were almost universally used, but they disappeared and the fashion was to have bars as narrow as possible, with a drop sufficient to suit the fancy of the extremist. This season has seen a change in this respect, for now 20, 22 and even 2-1 inch handle 'bars are extensively used. The fad for the wide bar spread in the west, and a large number of riders have equipped their mounts with bars ranging from 19 to 22 inches from tip to tip. This style of bar gives a comfortable position and makes the handling of the wheel on rough roads m-ach easier than the extremely narrow ones; there is, too, lirale chance of criticism from the medical fraternity on the ground that the chest may be contractsd. With the wide bar came a desire to have less drop, which wili soon appeal to th» physicians and to the police of gome localities, -where oriinaDces b»v« been adopted tending to prevent a leaning position in order to avoM as much as possible tk» liability of accldente, catwtd, i* is claimed, >ln», trtach prerenta tb* iid«r from Exposition will te in proarea* at Yrn, rroxu May vrniil October peclal low rate round irlp Ucketa will twaoM.* rt* Pennsylvania Line*; for thi» event. .Full- an^culars concerning- lare. dale* of Bale,. time of train*, etc,, n sy IK: obtained upon ppllcstion 10 ceareht Pennsylvania Lln» Icket Agent. orby.addreKRing-Geo-S.
