The Colored "Gemmcn" wlio Handled tli« Gloves at Peru. Sporting- circles were aroused a few days ngo by the announcement that Elder Pitts of Peru, would meet Wm.

About two hundred people at a dollar a head gathered to witness the contest. Tom Pierce of Peru, was made time keeper, a gentleman from Anderson was selected as referee and the fight began.

Eighth round—Jordan came up groggy and looking pale but responded promptly to the call. A bold right bander le f t his nose exposed and Pitts reached for it but his arm was too short.

Lafayette Journal: Night before last a party of young folks dropped into the home of a young married couple on Eleventh street with the intention of surprising them. The surprise was complete, and a very lively time was had by the eight or nine couples. The young three weeks husband, whose name is George, endeavored to make it interesting for tho dancers, He sent out after the beer and the beer came instantly. The orchestra perched in a little nook rendered sweet music to which the dancers tripped the light fantastic. They often put the light out and tripped around in total darkness. Along about midnight George got up a little diversion of his own and instigated a movement to break up the party in short order. He locked the doors and got a revolver. With this playful little instrument he threatened to amuse his guests by shooting a few q uarts of brains out of them on the whole. The girls screamed and the boys tried to open the doors for fresh air and other purposes. George was quite intent on shooting some one, and finally selected a prominent young barber on Columbia street as the man. The p. y. b. could not get through the door, so he went through a window and escaped. He ran nearly to Dayton and there was a piece of glass sticking in his shirt front yesterday morning. Another barber from the same shop made frantic efforts to escape, but in the meantime things had become tranquil again. Ib was a very pleasant affair and one which will be remembered long by the surprised and the sur- prisers. . Banding's Cane Goes to tlic Jury. The case of Frank Bending on trial for obtaining money on false pretenses was given to the jury at 6 o'clock last evening^ That body was still in deliberation at midnight. The'argument on the case consumed the whole of tho afternoon, J. W. McGreevey and Q. A. Myers speaking for the State, and A. G. Jenkines and S. T. McCotmeU pleading for the defense. The case attracted considerable attention, and the court-room was fairly well filled a part of the day. Mrs Al Swadener received the sad intelligence yesterday of the death of her uncle L. W. Curtis, of Cleveland Ohio who visited here last summer and won many friends. Mr.' Curtis at one time was connected with, one of the eastern roads but retired from railroad service and entered the jewelry business known for years as Curtis & Crittendon. Failure of health, a few years ago compelled him to retire from active business. Mrs. Swadener leaves to-day for the funeral.

COST >,:: Is an all important matter with you on such things. Pay $500 more than you should for a house and it is comparitively 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 bv • ; '. ': , .• .-,-, --r. '•• c' ; ' ••, , M. McCaflery ,&.. Co=
