Tho "Winona Assembly and Summer Sphool" which was incorporated on the 13th inst with a capital stock of |100,000 bids fair to become a very popular and beneficial institution. Great Interest Is already being manl, fesled in the enterprise and there appears to bo no trouble as regards fin- anclal matters. Tho site selected, Bass Lake, in Starko county, Ind., is a most desirable location and la comparatively speaking easily accessible from all directions. The Indications are however that the facilities for reaching- the grounds will be shortly very much Improved by the construction of a steam railway from Knox to a station on the C. & E, Ry., and the Nlckle Plato, past the lake through Winimac and Pulaskl to Montlcello on the Pan Handle. Mew York and Chicago capitalists are at tho back of this sub-enterprise and it is understood parties in tho east are now engaged in bonding the projected road. 'J he association has secured 175 acres of land bordering on the lake for the grounds proper and expects to push rapidly tho work of Bt- tlng up so as to got tho grounds ready for occupying the coming season. Negotiations are also in progrees looking toward the securing of the dome of the Agricultural building at tbo World's Fair to be used as the main part of tho auditorium Assembly hall. This dt>me which is quite large Is constructed principally of steel so bolted that ii can bo taken down and put up in similar position and by the addition of a gallerp made to accommodate 6,000 people. Since the present location was definitely decided upon land in that Immediate vicinity outside of the grounds has practically doubled In value and macy transfers of real estate are being made; ono tract of about 150 acres having been purchased within the past week by a syndicate of Chicago parties at a good advance over former value although 1J miles distant from the lake. This resort selng near lo Chicago will undoubtedly be well patronized by the people rom that city, and even now many inquiries are bsicg received relative to purchase of lots, etc., indicating that such will be tho c-tse.

SEARCH ENDS SADLY The Mystery of Bernard Hamel's Absence Cleared Cp. BUTLER MITCHELL MAKES A STARTLING DISCOVERY ON THE SOUTH SIDE. The Dmoned.Frozeu Body orBern»r«l Hamel. Removed .Prom an Old Well Xear Aman'« HI»tU«mHli Sboj on Burlington Avenue 1'mterdaj—W«s Known 10 Have Had Stoney-A Search or tl'" C»rp»e DUclonea no Cm»h--Tlie C'jrouer'B Inquect to be Held Tomorrow. The body ol Bernard Ham el, a well known German citizen of the South Side, who bad been mianlng since Monday evening, February llth, at 6 o'clock, was found by a twelve year old bov named Butler Mitchell, about Sve o'clock last evening, in a shallow well near the west entrance to Boerger Bros., wagon repair shop, at the rear of Jos, Aman's blacksmith shop, Nos. 101 and 103 Burlington avenue. The boy immediately reported the discovery to the neighbors and a crowd waa soon collected at the blacksmith shop. The news flew all over the city in u Bhort time, and the coroner and Kroeger & Strain, the undertakers, were notified as soon as possible. In the meantime a rope waa fastenod to the body and a number of bystanders assisted In drawing it Into the light. When the ambulance reached the spot the body was in Jos. Aman's blacksmith shop, and it was at once removed to the undertaking establish* ment of Kroner & Strain on Broadway where Coroner Downey called to examine it. THE STORY AS IT APPEARS. Monday evening at JG o'clock, Ber. nard Hamel, aged GO years, having: probably $20 in his pocket, was seen at Gua Rock's saloon No. 1, Burlington aveoue. At that time be was in- tox'.cated, and about that time he dls, appeared as if the earth had opened and swallowed him up. In a day or two a search for the missing man was begun and until lass evening was prosecuted vigorously by the relatives of the old man. A brother-in-law, George Heironimus, had been untiring In his search for the aged vetoian, or somo trace of Lim, and many of Bernard Hamel's old friends joined in the quest. The South Side was deeply stirred by the mysterious disappearance, and the whole city was interested In the affair. It was known that the old gentle, man would not be able to proceed far from the point at which he was last seen, without assistance, in fact it was said thatho was not in condition to roach his home Monday night. The search was confined to the immediate neighborhood, but without result, and Mrs. Hamel wss every day becoming more worried over the strange and unaccountable absence of her bus- band. It was concluded that Barnard Hamol had frozen to death in some out ot the way place., or that he had been FOULLY DEALT 'WITH and the bo&y disposed of. Though the corpse has been recovered there has been but little light thrown on tha secret of his fate. It has been established that Hamel had drawn his pen, sion, $24, Monday, He had not paid his small debts, amounting to only a fow dollars, as was his custom; and he is said to have been averse to spending money recklessly. Therefore when his pockets were searched by the coroner last evening and found to be empty, the theory of foul play was considerably strengthened. At the time of his death Bernard Hamel was warmly dressed, though without an overcoat. He wore striped trousers, a black sack coat and vest, a dark flannel shirt and heavy underwear. His feet were protested by strong sbObS and heavy artics. HAD TO BE THAWED OCT. At Kroeger & Strain's undertaker ELASHED OVER THE WIRES? Received the Following Telegram Yesterday.

The coroner was unable to examine the body for marks of violence or other traces that would show In what way he died, because of the position in which the corpse was frozen. The legs were drawn up and the arms were bent at the elbow and held close to the sides. The hands were bare and were unmarked. The face was covered with blood and smeared with mire, and was bruised as if from the fall, or from a fist or blunt instrument. He was resting on his face, his feet pointing upward. The well is probably four and one-half feet deep, and the dead man's extremities were Tlilble from the Burfac« of rt|- ground. • 4jjjj The well had been drawn on by the' Boerger Broa., the wag-on makers, and the blacksmith Joa. Aman, for water to set tiree, etc., but had been parily filled up last fall. It was uncovered The coroner will view the spot today and will hold an Inquest tomorrow. The question is, did Bernard- Hamel walk blindly into the death trap, or waa he knocked insensible or killed by a robber before being placed where he wae found last night? There seems reason to believe that he was relieved of his money by some one. It is certain that the old well was considerably out of his way, if he was going home. No object can be assigned for hia walking across Burlington avenue, forty feet or more down a aide street, and upon a vacant lot on which was a deaih trap waiting to receive him. The old well from which the body was taken, la but a little over one hundred feet from the place where be was last seen. Tnere are many features of the cute that point to a brutal and unprovoked murder with robDery as the probable motive. The raattefewlll be carefully looked into, but the indications are that the story of Hamel'o last hcurs will remain an unsolved mytlery. Bernard Hamel was a member of the Grand Army of the that order will have charge funeral. Mr. Rock, tha salooaist. wishes It understood th,it Bernard Hamel did not purchase liquor at his place Mon~ day nighi. Hamel wae in the saloon Monday evening but be remained only a few moments, and while there was warming himself at the stove. In the saloon at ihe same lime was terdinand Rinebolt of Monterey, who had been a friend of the dead man in 1859. Mr. Hamel recognized him and they conversed pleasantly, /or a few moments. Hamel then walked out alone, as if starting to supper. There are numerous witness who will say that Hamel did not drink at Rock's falcon, and that he was not Intoxicated to such an extent as to be unable to take care of himself.

Tbe Kin;; of O;ihoiin;y No I^nn^er i-llct'ft The king of Dahomey received some Krupp cannon not long ago, and conceived tiie idea of having them mounted on elephants' backs for use in the field. With much diflieullvtthis project was carried out, and at the next military review the king ordered that one of the guns bo fired immediately in front of the royal position, firsl taking the prc- eaution to place a. couplo ot thousand prisoners where it was calculated Ihe b;:.ll would strike, so as to judge of the ofiVclivencss of the shot. When all was ready, says Amusing Journal, one of tho biggest, elephants wiis backed around and sighted. Just as the lanyard was jorked, however, the animal turned half rouud to reach for a peanut or something, and the shell took oil: the prime minister's head and knocked a hole as big as a sewer through the royal palace. His majesty wouldn't have eared so ranch if the matter had ended there—as the minister wasn't very prime and the palace needed ventilation—but it didn't. On the contrary, me elephant, which had been stood on its head by the recoil, picked itself up in a fury and started in on the down grade ahead of its ticket. It upset the grandstand the very first rush, slung tho grand eham- berhiin and the past grand carver of missionaries into the ne::t street. It then jumped into the brass band with all four feet, and if it hadn't got the big drum over its head so that it couldn't see, it would probably have cleaned out the entire congregation. The king was not found until th'e next morning, and then he was heard to remark that there was onh- one thing needed to render his new artil- lerv svstem an entire success—that was to get the enemy to adopt it. iliii ceremony of taking wine with oneanother: ami it is considered as a particular compliment to your neighbor- should you condescend to lake up a-.

A CHINESE DINNER. One IN'apKin I* >Jado to Serve the "Whole Company. Unlike their neighbors the Japanese, they do not squat on the floor during meals, but understand the use and comfort of chairs. Most of the dishes of which the dinner consists arc placed beforehand on the table, which is therefore necessarily a large one. and is not graced with cloth. The meal generally commences with a drink all round, followed by a sort of hors-d'oeuvre, consisting not of dainty appetizing morsels, but of fruit and nuts; then comes soup, followed by various stews and messes. It is particularly noticeable, saj's Chambers' Journal, that all the dishes are of a decidedly oily flavor, and indeed this appears indispensable to the Chinese cook, who, by the way, never serves his meat roasted as we know it, but cut up into small pieces, and stewed or boiled- Between each course it is a common practice to smoke a few •whiffs of tobacco from a pipe to while away the interval.
