Blood and Liver eod&w ' '323 Pearl Street. The Pickwick buds were entertained in a very pleasant manner by Miss Abby Rogers at Long Cliff Friday evening. So many have been cured of rheumatism by Hood's Sarsaparilla that we urge all who suffer from the disease to try this medicine. 12 Wherever the Gorroans have appeared this season, the press pronounced it without a doubt the most refined and novel ministrol performances ever presented. M: G. Farnham. of Indianapolis, a representative of the Labor Signal, is in the city looking after the interests of that paper. Mr. Farnham will remain here several days.

The "beautiful snow" was taken advantage of last eveing by every one who had anything bearing the least semblance to a sleigh, and the jingling of the merry bells made continuous music along the more traveled streets. It is believed however, that the greatest degree of enjoyment was found by the small boy whose stolen ride on the runners of passing sleighs placed him for the time being in a perfect heaven of happiness. '••• Died at Albuquerque, N. M., Sunday evening, MaryL. Paiker Cassells. Spinal ^trouble which she suffered with for four years was the cause of her death. The deceased is a sister of the Parker Bros, the well known barbers', and was born in. this city May 10,1651. She was married to A. R. Cassells Jan. 1878, and moved to New, Mexico for the benefit of Mr. Cassell's health. She leaves a husband, a son four years old, three - brothers, one sister and a number of relatives to mourn her loss. A special meeting of the State board of directors of the Indiana division T. P. A. was held in this city Satur 7 day. The meeting was called by President Taylor to consider the matter of sanctioning the issue of a book by the Indiana division similar to those issued by the Texas and Missouri divisions. The object is to raise a fund for the building of a home and sanitarium for broken down, sick and decrepit members=of the T. P. A. The Texas division placed a snug sun in their treasury as well as making a liberalcontribution to the sanitarium fund. Messrs. Logan; Muir, Elliott, Riblett, Hart and Winchester were in attendance. Mrs. S. B. Boyer met-with a.pain- ful accident yesterday afternoon which for a time caused much apprehension among her. family and friends. She slipped and fell on the stons step at the family residence corner of Eighth and North and striking the back of her head on the pavement was rendered unconscious by the force of the fall. Dr. J. H. Shultz was summoned and proper restoratives were applied. While the lady still suffers considerably from the effects of the fall it is thought that the injury will not prove serious. It has notjbeen many weeks since Mr. Boyer was rendered unconscious by a fall somewhat similar. JOHN STOMBAUGD AGAIN. A lioeanwport Convict Attempt* lo Kill a Fellow Coiivlut With a Big Knife. John Stombaugh who was seat up for fourteen years in the Cass circuit court a few years ago hasplaced himself in a position to probably spend the remainder of his days in the penitentiary. The Michigan City News of Saturday evening tells the story as follows: A serious cutting affray occurred in the woolen mill at the northern prison about 7 o'clock Friday morning;. The convicts had just marched in to begin work and as they broke rank and ^started for their respective berths the guard also started for his station. His attention was suddenly attracted by a noise behind him, and upon turning around saw two convicts engaged in a desperate struggle and one of them using a knite upon the other in a manner that indicated that he meant business. One was Ed Carroll and the other John Stombaugh, a fourteen year convict from Logansport. Before the guard could reach them Carroll had been badly worsted and another convict who attempted to separate them, had received an ugly cut across his forehead. Slombaugh was locked up and Carroll was takan to the hospital. .Dr. R. H. Calvert, the prison physician, attended him assisted by Dr. Tillotson. Carroll's head and face were a horrible sight. He had received not less than a dozen slashes with the keen blade of the knife, one of which came very near severing tho jugular vein. Blood flowed profusely from • his numerous wounds and his clothing and everything about him WAS thoroughly saturated. His sufferings were terrible, but he was nervy and withstood the terrible pain remarkably. It was thought for a time, however, that he would die before night, but he rallied and is some better to-day, although far from being_out of danger. If he recovers -he will be a horribly disfigured man. The exact cause of the fracas is not known, but it was probably the termination of an old grudge, as Carroll and Stombaugh had had a conflict once before. Stombaugh is a hardened tough and it Jis said sharpened his knife for the express purpose of using it on Carroll, When Stombaugh was convicted, at Logansport, the judge sentenced him to five years. He considered the sentence extremely, severe and began applying the most vile epithets to the judge, and also threatened dire vengeance upon him. In order to allow him more time to reflect over the matter the judge changed the sentence from five to fourteen yeais. The probabilities now are that ^ at the expiration of his sentence he will be tried for the assault and battery with intent to kill Carroll, and another fourteen year term would be no more than-what he justly deserves. And Slie Came ;to JLoganspDrf. Lafayette Courier: Several months ago a woman left a little babe at the home of Mrs. Plynn on Oakland Hill, stating that she was coming down town to look after her pension papers and would return in a few minutes. She never came and the fact was mentioned in the Courier at the time. Yesterday she returned, however, went to the house of Mrs. Flynn and demanded her baby, and was informed that the little one was comfortable domiciled at the Orphans 1 Home where Trustee Sims placed it soon after the woman left. She went to the trustee, stamped the floor until the eyes of Mr. Sims- was filled with dust and in tones like the distant thunders roll, demanded her child. The trustee without the least excitement and while he smote the dust from his eyes, told the gentle woman that just as soon as she would satisfy him that she had a suitable home and could provide for tho child, she could have the bane. She left, here for Logansport'promis- ing the follow Mr. Sims' advice. -c. li. S. C.
