This order was established in this State in 1892. There are at present 25 court* of tho order io Indiana with a membership of 727. an increase in the last year of 315. The order is fraternal and baa an insurance feature. In tho United States and Canada are 70, COO Fores tors. As wae expected, Harry Worden plead.guilty to the charge of assault and battery with intent to kill when taken Into court yesterday morning. Sentence was passed on'him at 1:30 p. m, by Judge D. B. McDonnell, fixing his punishment at §evan yeirs at hard labor in the prison north, affixing a fine of $100, and disfranchising him Jor seven years. The court room was full of people during the hearing of the evidence, it being necessary for the judge to hear the circumstances in order that bo might act intelligently in the matter. The wife of the prisoner and his father sat near him during the trial. Worden elated on the stand that bb was wild from the effects of strong drink on the day of the assault, and that he knew nothing of what had occurred after ft certain point, his vleit at Nick Frlei saloon. Ho had had a revolver but did not know what had become of the weapon. Nick Fries, the saloon man told hew wild and dangerous looking, Wordon had been the day of the ihooting, and said that he was very much in fear of the drunken man, who talked of the men in town with whom he proposed to get even for alleged grievances. William Bopp, who shot Worden in. the neck several monthi ago, wae one of the proposed victims. Mr. Bopp told on the stand of tho trouble he had with th« prisoner. John Medland testified that the prisoner was steady, and Industrious when sober, : but a dangerous man when drunk. ; Warren Knowles, the principal vritneefc for the State, told hli story in a convincing and straightforward; way. He sat during the hearing of tho witnesses, with bis friends inside the railing. He la still weak and bis cheek is pale, but he la worth a regiment of dead men, and is on the road to vigorous healtk, Els story and that of the policemen who made the arreat appeared in this paper. The vest worn by Knowles at the time of the shooting and a suspender bucklo through which Worden'a bullot plowed, were shown in court, The garment showed a jagged hole near tho upper pocket on the left side, and wae dyed with the blood of the vio- tim. It is probable that Riley Ellis, who hold Knowlos while Wordon placed the revolver to hia breast and fired the shot, will stand trial. Ha will bo LEGISLAT1TE NOTES.

The bill as introduced fixed the rate t 2 cents a mile. The committee recommended that the rate be fixed at 2*- cents a mile. The author of the bill moved that the report nf the committeo bo not concurred In, and that the bill be advanced in the form In which it was introduced. Beprteentatlve Stakebraka-opened the discussion in favor of the two-cent rate. Bo maintained that all persons who could raise $20 could get railroad fare at two cents a mile; he believed that if the man who could rales $20 could get suoh a rate, the man who had but $1 should have the same rate. He maintained that the petition of tho railroad employes against the reduc. lion of fare should not have any weight, Tor the reason that their trans* portatiori does not cost them anything. Represontatlve Williams said he bad made soma Inquiry ot railroad em- ployes, and he found that they feared that if the fare should ba reduced the railroad companies would make H a pretext for reducing the wagea of thoir employes. Representative McGregor, speaking for or£aniz:d labor, favored a two- cent rats He reminded the House that the Government *dld not reake any reduction to the man who pur chased a large number ol postnge s'.amps. The motion not to concur in tho report of the committee was curried— yeas 47, nays 40. The bill, providing for a two-coat rate, took Its place on the files. Ground Hog Boots!

YOUR OBEDIENT Two reports -were made by the committee on education on Senator Neiv- by'* bill, requiring- instruction in the public schools concerning the effects of stimulants and narcotics. The majority report is against the bill the claim being made by Senator Me' Cutcboc that the bill ia a plan to re quire now books. Nearly every senator had on his desk a petition from his constituents asking that the bill be passed. Seca tor Hougoton eaid he had no petition. He would vote, he said, for the minority report; but when the bill is put on ita final passage, he will move an amendment.

There is a real necessity for unusual caution in the handling of natural gas, which, while being a blessing and a docile servant when cared for properly and watchsd closely, may still rise up and cause more trbubla than a rolrao lory powder mill °if it i* allowed lee. way. Tho moment the smell of natural gas is noted the consumer should notify tqe proper ones of the leak. He should not wait or hesitate but move with energy. Delay is dan geroua when natural gas is known to be accumulating. At this season the papers each day tell of terrible explosions of natural gas; of buildings wrecked, lives destroyed and great loss incurred, and most Of the accidents might have been averted had the propor precautions been taken. Elwood, Anderson, Marion, Peru, Elton, Pa,., Erio, PA,, and other cities havo jjst recently beeo visited by natural gas erupUoos. There ia always danger from fire whore natural gas ia left burning in stoves or jsts over niftbt. A firo will bo left burning in a etc re when the family goes to bed, and the pressure being lot£/f ho key will be turned so as to let on the full po;ver In the night there is suro to be an increase ot several pouucis in Ihe pres^urj, and the consequence is, firee lofi eo burning flare up when tho patron of the pipe line is peacefully snocz'ng, the. wall or the floor IB ignited,and the fire department is called out to squirt ice water through tb.3 best room of a respectable citizen. It id certainly singular that there are rot auch fires ovary night in natural gas cities. A little ordinary • thoughtfulness and care will do away with most of the danger that is constantly with the consumer of natural gas. Everyone should take warning froa the experience of others in the past. WHEN THACKERAY WAS ANGRY,*. The Sxllora Who Intended to Plaj- »•» Trick Chanted Their Mtntli. Once upon a time the daughters o" v Thackeray saw that good man,; thoroughly and heartily angry—angry to the point of profanity. It was dur-- ing their Italiau journey, when they 7 were returning to the iship ia Genoa... harbor after a day on tho shore. "Wo^ had to bo on board nt n certain thno.'l" Jfrs. Kitchio says, in her Jl paper, "so that we engaged a and drove quickly to the quay, the convicts clanking in their chains-,, were still at work. •• A boat was found,, rowed by some Bailors, who certainly.-,did not wear chains, but who wcro ; - othervvlse not very unlike those industrious convicts in appearance. The; bargain was made, wo all Cvo entered..' the boat, and as we were getting 5u wo could see our great ship in the twilight,. loolilng bigger than ever, and one-., rocket and then another going- off' toward the dawning stars. 'They aro- eignaling- for us,' said one of our com-- panions; 'we shall, soon be on board.' "We had pulled some twenty strokes-, from the shore by this time, when suddenly the boatmen left off rowing,. They put down their oars, and one o£'; them began talking- volubly, though E." could not understand what ho said... 'What's to bo done? 1 said ono of the? young men to my father. 'They say they won't go on unless we give thenx- fifty francs more,' and he began shaking his head and remonstrating in. broken Italian. The boatmen paid no^ attention, shrugging 1 their shoulders* a nil waiting as if they were determined never to row another stroke.. Then tho steamer scut up two more-rockets, which rose through the twi-- light, bidding ns hurry; and then snd- dealy my father rose up in the .stern of, the boat where ho was sitting, and,., standing tall and erect, and in an aDg-or- • such ns I hr.d never seen him in before or after in all my life, he shouteu out in loud nnd impatient l^iglish:. 'Curse you, go on." a simple raiileclic-- lion which, carried more force than., all the Italian polysyllables ;im3 expostulations of our companions. To.» our surprise and great relief (.he race.' eccmed frightened; they took to theiir- o-ai-s again and began to row, an-» muttering, When we got on tho s3iip they told us it was a well-known trick the Genoese boatmcr>> were in the habit of playing upon travelers, and that they would have scut I;* boa* for us if we had delayed anj;.- 3nrj;T-er.' ; —St. Louis Globr-Ti'su-'crat~ To Hesd Off Fraud Chctl*. Prof. Henry, of the Wisconsin stat« agricultural experiment station, suggests the enactment of a law that all fraud cheese shall be abont 10 inche» in diameter to distinguish it from the genuine, which ia 14Jjf Inches across. The change would break up the Chicago practice of marking poor cheese up to first fiT&de. Pro! Henry says: "What Tve .need Is something about the cheese which cannot be separated from it. Bandages can be torn off, •tencils obliterated, etc., bat the size of the cheese—its diameter—cannot b« aaired with success, I believe." What the Czar Wanted. The first mot of the new czar was delivered upon the occasion of M. do Giers* official visit to the emperor, who received him with the greatest demonstration of friendship, at the same time expressing the hope that notwithstanding M. de Giers' reported wish to retire from office he would still continue to work with him for many years. "But, your majesty, it is scarcely possible; look at my feet, they will hardly carry me." The czar replied; "I am very sorry for you; but as far as I am. concerned, I do not want yonr. feet, I wact your head." "Which would yon rather be," said Errocts of Thondrr and Ughtutng.
