Mrs. Englebrecbt went to that place yesterday to select a Suitable residence , preparatory to their removal. Mr. Englebrecht will travel in the interests' of an elevator factory. The Macy Monitor laments as follows: "Often for the want of a private room, and the presence of loafers, we have been compelled to take parties out of doors, and face a blizzard from fifteen to thirty minutes, in order to lave a private conversation with ;hem. Some peole never know when iheir presence is obnoxious. The new K P, lodge at Bunker Hill ivas instituted in good shape by Appollo Lodge of this city 'Tuesday evening. George Funk was institut- ng officer and twenty members were given the three degrees and the officers nstalled, all being done before one )'clock in the morning. This is said to be the biggest night's .work ever done by the Knights of Pythias in Northern Indiana. The new lodge promises to grow rapidly. Sunday morning at the residence of Mr. Slaten Keplinger on 15th street, Mr. J.esse Burdgp, of North Manchester, and Miss Laura Reed, of Hooverville, were united in 'marriage. Rev. W. S. Boston of the Market street M. E. church officiating. The groom is a telegraph operator on the ' .C. & A. road,and his bride is a very estimable young lady. They have many friends here who wish them. well. They have gone to housekeeping at North Manchester.' David and Joe Metherd.whose departure for the wild, and wooly west was chronicled last week by the .city papers, are on their return, having at last accounts reached Kouts, a station on the Pan Handle between here and Chicago. On their arrival at the latter city .they did not have the-requisite amount of funds necessary to purchase tickets to. their destination and. One of the worst accidents the Pan Handle has had for years occured yesterday afternoon at. 8:50 at Hagerstown about twenty . miles this side of Richmond. The passenger tram made up here from the Chicago limited which arrives here about 1:25 p. m. left"69gansport for Cincinnati on time yesterday afternoon in cftarge of Conductor C. B. Case. The train makes but few stops, Kokomo, Elwood, Anderson and New Castle being the only ones between Logansport and Richmond. Tne train reached New Castle on time and shortly afterwards started on its way to destruction. - Near Hagerstown there is a long grade ,at the foot of which runs a creek some forty feet below the grade of the track. Down this grade the train started out at a high speed as is usual. It is stated that at this point seventy- five miles an hour is frequently made. At the bottom ot the grade there was a crash and in less than a minute part of the train was dashed down an embankment into the creek. The engine did not leave the track. The baggage car stopped but held its position. The smoking car, ladies ear and chair car went over, the chair car the fartherest. Four men occuppying the smoking apartment at the rear end of the chair car were dashed to death. These were C. B. CASE, Conductor, Logansport. A, M. REEVKS, Banker, Richmond. GEOBGE NEEDHAM, R. R. Claim Agent, 'Richmond. 0. F. DEAL, Supt. Maintenance of Way, Richmond. . All were instantly killed except Deal who died at 5:50. The porter of the chair car had a leg broken and many other passengers were bruised and scratched but none seriously. Mrs. William Englebrecht of this city was a passenger on the Strain and was reported only . slightly bruised. She went on to Richmond and telegraphed from there that she was safe. One of those strange fatalities is shown in the case of Banker Reeves .At considerable trouble he obtained an order for the train to stop for him. at Kouts and he was thus a passenger on the ill fated train. No explanation is given as to the cause of the wreck. The railroad men say that the frame of the engine broke throwing debris upon the track and causing the rails •to break or the track to spread. It is stated also that the driving rod broke and that a piece of it, after bouncing under tlie tender and baggage car fell across the track in front of the smoker. - The accident filled many hearts with sorrow in this city arid many sleepless hours fell to those who had loved husbands or brothers at their post of duty on "the perilous rails. Conductor Charles B. Case was a handsome, generous, official, always good natured and happy. He had many friends on the road and off of it. He was a brother of Conductor Harry Case who by a strange fortune brought in the train which bore the remains of his brother at 2:30 this morning. He leaves a wife to mourn his sudden and •untimely death: The ill fated train was manned by Conductor C. B. Case, Engineer Bartlett, fireman Noah Dunn, brakeman Wes Cramer; . baggageman, Evarett Allison, Brakeman Cramer returned on the accommodation last night. He was but slightly bruised. He brought with him Conductor Case's book of duplicates which, he took from the pocket, of the dead man. They were turned over to the ticket receiver all spotted with blood, a .ghastiy sight.' Everett Allison, was brakeman on the train.-which was wrecked so disastrously out' of Kokomo a little more than a year ago.

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.
