Mrs. Bennett, wife of Superintendent Bennett of the Pan Handle, met with a painful accident at Urbana 0., a fe^ days ago which will detain her thera for sometime.

She was visiting friends at Urbana, her former home. Richmond Palladium: Tbe -engine that was in the recent terrible smash up at Hagerstown is now in the yards back of the round house. Yesterday it was visited by hundreds of our people. It is battered and broken up quite'badly. The great heavy bars of hardened . and polished steel, four inches wide and two inches thick, were broken, bent and twisted as if itey bad been of wire. The Indianapolis News reports yesterday's legislative proceedings as follows: Senator Burke's bill, amending the present license law, came up for consideration. Tbe only change it makes in the present law is to provide that whoever sells without liquor license shall not only be fined, but shall also be imprisoned from ten to thirty days. Mr Voig't, explained the provisions of the bill, as above indicated. While he was doing this a dozen members from the larger cities of the State crowded around the clerk's desk, so as 10 see for themselves that the bill contained nothing that would hurt some of their dear constituents, i, e. 'the saloon-keeper. Several other members showed a disposition to sneak out, but when they found out that it did not affect licensed saloon-keepers they took courage and remained. Mr. Hench said that this bill made imprisonment mandatory in cases of conviction for selling or giving away liquor. It it were passed, and a man gave hi's- neighbor a drink, withfout license, he might be sent to jail for it. Mr. Hess opposed the bill, for the reason as he explained, that he believed it would take away from the revenues of the school fund, for in the conviction under it the penalties would be small flnes and imprisonment, instead of large fines to go into the school fund, as was no.v the custom. Mr. Kelley demanded the previous question and under its operation the bill was defeated, yeas 25, nays, 42. It was a significant fact that the anterooms were filled with members during roll-call. Mr. Oppenheim. from the • ways and means committee, reported a bill providing for a tax levy of 6 cents on the $100 of valuation, in addition to the present 12 cents levy, the proceeds of the former to go to the support of the benevolent institutions and to be known as the "Benevolent Institution Fund." In explaining this he said that the estimated expenses of the State for the current year were nearly $1,900,000, and the revenues, under the present law, were a little less than $1,500,000. This additional 6 cents levy would give the State an additional revenue of §525.000, or more than enough to defray the expenses. In his opinion, under tbenew tax law, the total revenue to the State would be from $2,200,000 and $2,400,000, which would leave a sinking fund of from §300,000 to §500,000 to apply each year on the State debt. This additional levy, he explained, was absolutely necessary. He moved the suspension of the constitutional rules that the bill might be passed. The rules were suspended—yeas S3, nays.l [Mr. Patton]—and the bill was passed —yeas 69, nays 6—the latter being Messrs. Bryant, Eailow, Oldham, Patton, Trimble, and Wright, after which the House took a recess. The Senate committee on fees and salaries had a meeting last night and so changed the pending bill that its most intimate friends won't recognize it. If it goes through as now fixed the State officers will greatly benefit by it. It is probable that, finally, the Senate will recede from its amendments, fixing the time for the bill going into effect in June, 1892, and agree to the action of the House in deciding that it shall not go into effect on the present incumbents. Representative Haggard was the first Republican, during the session, to be called to preside over the House. This happened this, morning, and he did it very well. He was not allowed to remain in the chair very long, however, for the Democrats were possibly afraid that he might turn them out. The Governor has signed the appellate court bill and it is now a law. It will take him longer to appoint the judges, however. Gen. Charles Denby of Evansville, who is about to retire from his position as Minister to China, is the latest suggestion for one PARTIES HOLDING NOS. 2383 2850 3591 4858 7107 8560 10166 11359 2387 3241 4394 5402 7995 9120 10400 11364 2509 3507 4770 5623 8209 10056 10602 11848 11877 Will find it to their interest by calling on HARRY FRANK Liberal One Price (Jlotluer of Logansport and Delphi. of these judges. A great many bills pass the House with only one vote against them. That vote is the personal property, goods and chattels of Mr. Timmons, who exercises it in this way because he does not thoroughly understand the measures, and doesn't care to take any chances in voting for them. The painters and decorators will meet in their newly decorated hall, the old Musodeon hall, corner of Market and Fourth streets, this evening, for the first time since the same has been fixed up. As becomes the order of decorators their hall is one of the very finest in the city. The meeting to-night will be well attended and full of interest.

It costs-us a hundred times as much to tell you of this as we will ever make on what you buy of them-but they are only samples. ' If a penny buys so much what will 100 pennies buy? [f some necessities'cost so little, others will be proportionately as cheap and McCaffrey keeps almost every necessity or luxury that you have want for. 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 cons^aatdram will in a few years take all .that a home would cost you.
