Good Templars hall was well filled last nisrht to listen to the noted temperance speaker from the wild and woolly West, M. V. Bennett, familiarly known as the Kansas Cyclone. The meeting was opened by two selections from the Hoosier Quartette, followed by prayer from Rev. E. S.. Scott, pastor of the Second Presbyterian church. Mr. Beanett then read from the Holy Scriptures and said that upon the Bible be based his politics as well as his religion. The first part of his address was devoted to the duty of Christian voters relative to the liquor traffic. During his address he brought down the house in his vivid illustrations of David slinging a fatal pebble stone into Goiiattf s cranium. To this he compared th» Prohibition party in its efforts to overthrow the liquor traffic. During his address he said many good things, one of the most truthful of his assertions being that Logansport is now dominated by its sixty or more saloons. He denounced our municipal government in the strongest of Anglo Saxon and said he hoped there would soon be a time when the liquor traffic would lose its head even as the great Goliah bad lost his head. To night Mr. Bennett's subject will be the relation of the church to the liquor traffic. If "Vonr Unlike Is on Fire You put water on the burning timbers not on the smoke.

'.•How are park matters progressing?" 1 was asked Mr. Wei don -Webster yestereay. In reply Mr. W. said: "The responsibilities of this public enterprise have multiplied beyond the power of one man to manage and I am at a loss for a definite reply. There are plenty of donations to be had, but one man cannot do everything. I have asked for assistance in the line of solicitation of donations but as yet lam left comparatively alone. I have dropped this feature of the enterprise however as there are other duties of the project that I cannot omit.' 1 ••How much money has been raised?" •-I raised in five days two thousand and three hundred dollars myself and some has been raised by Mr. Charles Peckham, wtio is looking after High street people. Unless those people donate their just share the work will be delayed till they do." "Nobody has visited the people owning property in the vicinity of the park. I have no time. If they need a park let them come forward with their just share. Few can realize how awfully dead to personal and public interest some of our people have become. And then on the other hand, we have men here of great financial daring, and endowed with a public spirit such as is seldom met save in rushing'towns-of -the West. I met Mr. Prager, the brewer to-diy." "Did he donate?" "Yes; without a word. He did express some anxiety for the hasty accomplishment of the project. We had some talk about general public enterprise, and he ended by saying that he would raise his donation of §100 to $250, providing I could get him a certain number more who would do likewise." "There are a great many who are donating from two to fifteen dollars, but I have no time to see them. The work is too large for one man. The scaled plans drawn by Messrs. Crane & Krutsch are now finished and subject to inspection by all who desire to give estimates on the contract for making a levee." "What is it going to cost?" ••The drawings are worth perhaps §200, and are donated by the architects." "No. I mean the park." "The park will cost about one-fourth of what is generally estimated. The scaled plans show a wonderful feasibility of the ideal when under the levels of the engineer. There is a surprise for Logansport in this. I have the figures now by which it can be calculated close." "Will there be improvements in time for tree and flower planting?" "High street and vicinity can answer this." RAILROAD KUMBLINGS. Item- from Hie Note-Book of Our Kullivay Reporter—Point* Personal an<l Otherwise. The state executive committee of the order of railway conductors are now in this city. The members propose to leave no stone unturned to secure the location of the general headquarters of the order in Indianapolis. To-night a meeting of the committee with the members of the board of trade and Commercial club, will be held in Exchange hall .at the board of trade building to consider the best way to bring about this desirable end. The present headquarters ol the order are at Cedar liapid s, la., and a strong effort will certainly be made to have them removed to this city and make this the permanent future hoois of the order. The following gentlemen compose the State executive committee of the conductors: A.H. Cutter, Andrews; G. M. Saliord, Logansport; F. F. Barnett, Logansport; William Susingei, Franklin; J. W. Caskey, Terre Haute; H. M. Mounts, A. J. Morrow. I. D. Baldwin and W. J. Spence, of Indianapolis. The meeting at Exeha.nge hall will- begin promptly at 8 o'clock this evening. During the afternoon this committee will meet with representatives ofthe board of trade and Commercial club, at the Denison hotel and some plan of action will be mapped out. The meeting will be held in order that the matter may be properly laid before every business man and citizen of Indianapolis and. a full attendance is requested.—Indianapolis Sentinel. The co-employe liability bill, as it passed the Senate, is not'what the railroad employes of the State demanded.

Mr. Samuel Grable one of Cass Coimlys oldest citizen and earliest setters has been identified v\-ith the county and its interest fur the past fourty- six years and there are few men in the county better known or more widely respected than he. Mr. Grable is one of the very few persons in this county who have lived to the remarkable age of ninety years and his arrival at that ripe old age was fittingly celebrated at the hospitable home o f * his son Mack Grable in Bethlehem township on Tuesday, the occasion being seizid upon by the relatives and friend.-B of the- nonagenarian to enjoy an old- fashioned birthday. Fifty or more persons gathered at the Grable homestead to enjoy the affair which proved remarkably pleasant to all' present. Mr. Grable, sen., is still hale and hearty and gives fair promise of seeing- down the, hundredth year in his life. He greeted his friends in a manner showing that the faculty for social enjoyment is still warmly alive in him and he entered into the spirit of the occasion with as keen a zest as any ot them. Mr. Grable came to this country forty-six years ago settling on the farm where he still lives and is the oldest of a large family of children, of whom, besides himself, Benj. Grable of this county and Abraham Grable of Kansas are all that survive. Of his own children, five are yet living. Jonathan and Mrs. Catherine Powell reside in this city; Mack in Bethlehem township: Mrs, Orwin in Kentucky, and Mrs. Christie in Illinois. The wife and mother died some fifteen years ago. The Journal congratulates the hale nonagenarian and hopes that he may live until a century is his span of life. • Lit Grippe Air nil). During 1 the epidemic of la grippe last season Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption, coughs and colds, proved to be the best remedy. Reports from the many who used it confirm this statement. They were not only quickly relieved, but the disease left no bad results. We ask you to give this remedy a trial and we guarantee that you will be satisfied with results 1 ; or the purchase price refunded. It has no equal in la grippe, or any throat, chest or lung trouble.

Comparatively few persons nowadays are blessed with normal or perfect eyesight. The opticians are authority for this statement. It is to be presumed they know what they are talking 1 about. Children wearing- spectacles in the streets, in the schools and in public places are almost as numerous as the members of that hirg-e class who have been compelled to resort to the artificial aid nf glasses because of sight made dire, by years. You often hear persons of your acquaintance say: "I see so many young men and young women wearing eyeglasses with showy little gold chain attachments or gold-bowed spectacles every time I go down town. Why is it? Has it become the fashion? Is it considered stylish? At the theater, when I go to church, or to the restaurant or club, or to a swell reception I notice the same tendency among young people and those in the prime of life to weai" glasses." For every person, young or old, who resorted to spectacles a few years ago there are ten now. Spectacles used to be the signals of advancing age a.nd the companions of gray hairs and wrinkled faces. M a young man in a country village put on g-lnsscs because c«£ some defect in his vision a few years ago, he was an object of curiosity and was looked upon as a coxcomb by all the yokels. To wear spectacles was to open a-way for ridicule as surely as when lie appeared on the village street with his first chimneypot hat. So the young iniss in her teens, who, because of nearsightedness, could not see the stars at night, was the innocent cause of gossip about her pedantry as soon as she put on glasses. These ideas about nature supplying every thing needful for the young have suffered a revolution. "Thirty years ago," said an optician yesterday, "we made only about eighty different combinations with ground glasses for defects of sight. We now make over 400,000 different combinations. All this has been accomplished through the study of astigmatism and the grinding of astigmatic glasses. This defect is described by opticians _ as a condition in which there is a difference in the refractory power (and hence focal distance) of the diameters of the media (cornea and lens) through which light passes while entering the eye. Instead of rays of light being focussed to a point on the retina there is an oval or a line formed. Astigmatism may occur not only in an ernmetropic or normal eye, but also in those in which, nearsightedness or farsightedness exists. So,-you see, it has a very wide sweep, and requires many thousands of. different combinations in glasses: "Reading the indistinct print of cheap novels injures many eyes in young people.

PURCELL, Druggist,j "; ) f > 418 Market Street, Near Pearl. lorm er otner which caused headache, nervousness or lassitude called on an oculist he would prescribe blue, green or smoked glasses to give them relief. At present we correct ninety-nine in every hundred of these cases with plain glasses properly rounded and in proper combinations. Another thing that oculists have learned is that any defect of vision will manifest itself quicker in a person -weakened, by disease than in any ordinary strong and healthy one. Up to the age of forty a strong- constitution, I have noticed, 1 may continue to overcome almost any defect of the eyes. But as soon as the bodily strength begins to fail the defect comes to the front and the sig-ht begins to weaken. If you strain the optic nerve by forcing it to do what it should not do you are certain some day to pay the penalty. The sight may not only be permanently injured, but the nervous system may become deranged and the brain affected. Most young- persons who wear glasses are afflicted, I find, with myopia or naarsightedness and with astigmatism." The reason then why more glasses are worn than formerly, is because more defects can now be remedied by them and more people are beginning to find out that their vision is not what nature intended it should be.—Chicasro Herald. —First Citizen—"They'd 'oug-hter"pirt •up Jimmy McShane.

It is considered very stylish, to show yellow threads or stripes in the new goods as mixtures of gray with, yellow, of tan with yellow, or of black and white, together, striped or crossbarred with yellow.
