Miss Lulu Wilkinson was very The following is a copy of a letter which is attached to each of the blank subscription lists now b.eing sent to a few of the associations of the city. It explains itself. The appeal it contains should receive the most careful consideration. i'AKK SUBSCUIl'TJON FUJiD. LOGA.MSPORT, IND., Feb., 25, 181)1. Members of Gentlemen: 1 hereby make a personal appeal to you for assistance in behalf of the advancement of the interests of Logausport. . I can cot feel that 1 am encroaching upon the courtesy of your association in my demands, for what! ask is but a corporation with you, in such manner as you may deem most wise for the advancemsnt of our city. I refer to the collection of money with which to bjild the park. Four months of unremitting toil, although crowded with marvelous success, has taught me, that the work is too heavy for one man. After a personal outlay of much money and so much valuable time, I feel warranted in making a personal appeal for help iathe advancement of an enterprise that is certainly of the most vital concern to every individual of Logansport. My desire is, that you not only raise money among you by private subscription, but that you put this blank in the hands of a willing committee who may immediately set to work to collect written guarantees from reliable people. Please read the proclamation on the front of the list. Money is payable monthyorin cash, as you see fit. One dollar per month for six months is not a great amoant, and if all are thus liberal . the amount will soon b.) raised. No work will be begun on the grounds until money enough is in sight to insure success. If work can be begun soon, the flowers, grasses and trees of a principal part of the grounds will flourish this summer and all may taste their luxuries. Very Respectfully. WELDON" WEBSTEK. On being interviewed yesterday Mr. Weldon Webster stated: "Yes there is a marked increase of public spirit since the council have finally settled all disnute as to the plans. I hear that Mr. Prager will give $100 for the park. Several others have also promised, but smaller sums. The great trouble is here. The duties of this enterprise have multiplied beyond the power of one man to control, and I must call for aid in the work of circulating subscriptions for money. Messrs. Krutsch & Crane have agreed to get up a scale plot. When this is complete, we can receive bids on the contract for work- 1 ' PARTIES HOLDING NOS. 2383 2850 359J 4858 7107 8560 1016611359 11877 - 2387 3241 4394 5402 7995 9120 10400 ] 1304 3851 46G3 2509 3507 4770 5623 8209 1C056 1C602 11848 4321 9178 J0603 Will find it fo their interest by calliuo- on HARRY FRANK Liberal One Price (Jlotiner of Logan sport and Delphi. pleasantly surprised by about forty of he members of the Order of Chosen Friends at her, home on East High street Monday evening in honor of her twenty-first birthday. The event was a very enjoyable one, good music and elegant refreshments being pleasant features. More Trouble In tHe Eastern Hospital When Superintendent Wells, of the eastern Indiana asylum, returned to his charge last Saturday evening he found James Piper, of Shelbyville, another patient, apparently served as Blount had been, and he was prompt in notifying the authorities, and in summoning surgical assistance. The patient died, and attendants Brannon, Phillips and Miller united in a story to the effect that a patient named Denny, of Union City, had assaulted Piper, kicking him in the chest. A psst mortem disclosed that the bones of Piper were so brittle that if he had been kicked, as stated by the attendants, his ribs would have .been torn loose. As a result of the autopsy it was shown that Piper died of -menen- gitis complicated by syphilis and sep- ticaamia. The superintendent relieved Brannon and Phillips from duty and the dismissal of Miller is under consideration. Wilson, Humphreys & Co. 2OO and 2O2 Fourth St. J>emorc*t Prize Content. The Demorest prize contest at Good Templars' hall Mondoy night attracted quite a crowd and the exercises proved very interesting: There were eight contestants, one boy and seven girls. The judges awarded the silver medal to Master Harry Nichols, son of Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Nichols. It was found however, alter the award was made that, Harry was too young to enter the list according to the regulations governing- the contests and the decision of the judges was overruled. The medal was then awarded to Miss Sadie Condon whose declamation ranked second in merit These contests promote the literary tastes of young folks and the tion caused bj r them good. friendly emula- is productive of TUey Painted It Red.

You can buy any of the following articles for a penny at McCaffreys': 4O Hair Pins, 5OO Yards of Thread, A Paper Needles, A Paper pins, 1 Dozen Cloths Pins, A Fancy Thimble, 2 Lead Pencils. It costs us a hundred times as much to tell you of this as we will ever make on what you buy of them-but they are only samples. If a penny buys so ranch what will 100 pennies buy? If some necessities cost so little, others will be proportionately as cheap and McCaffrey keeps, almost every necessity or luxury that you have want for. COST Is an all important matter with you on such things. Pay $500 more than you should for a house and it is cornparitively little. But pay more than you should for what you every day find need for, and the constant drain will in a few years take all that a home would cost you. You pay for all things just the least that they can sell for by M. McCaffery & Co. r-
