RAILROAD NEWS. Jeseph Koons, of the Panhandle repair shop, is at Indianapolis, being called tbere on account of the illness of his sister. The Pennsylvania lines have handled since January 1st a total of 17,177,028 tons of coal and coke, which was 1,463,835 more tons than in the corresponding ten months of 1896. The local agents of the Wabasb, all over the system have been directed to prepare and forward to the General office at St. Louis, duplicate of all valuable papers tbey have on file. The originals were destroyed in the big fire. In rendering a verdict in favor of the Vandalia and against Brakeman David W. Marquis, late of this City, Judge Baker, of the United States district court at Indianapolis, held that Marquis should have been familiar with tbe kind of coupling apparatus used; and that the company was not guilty of contributory negligence. The plaintiff was a brakeman OQ the road who had his right hand mangled to a pulp while attempting to couple a freight car to a passenger engine at Woodland. He sued for $10'000 damages. The plaintiff was represented by John W, Kara and George S. Kistler. The Pennsylvania railroad appears to be getting economical, and according to reports it Is not probable that they will construct any more freight car? for some time to come. An effort is being made by the transportation officers to get more mileage out of each freight car, and In this way it Is proposed to cut down the expense made necessary by the increase In new rolling stock. Officials of the road contend that the average mileage of a freight car is less than 30 miles a day and sometimes fallsbe- lows 25 miles. Tbls they consider too small a mileage and efforts are being made to keep the cars in motion as much as possible. There will be no more extensions made at the Altooua shops for some time, and any money that may be set aside for this purpose will undoubtedly ba used In improving the facilities for the quick manufacture of any rolling stock that may be required. The company's officers have designed a steel truck which will undoubtedly supplant the wooden trucks now in use on Its freight cars. It is made of pressed steel and in sizes to carry 60,000, 80,000 or 100,000 pounds. This truck is stronger and costs less for maintenance than the ordinary wooden truck. LOWERED THE PIPE USE. A Dig Job Accomplished In Two Days. The Natural Gas company has lowerei* its pipes on the Seventeenth street bridge. The work was accomplished in two days aud was done without unjolntlng the pipe. The pipes were placed below the floor of the bridge and rest upon the bridge beams. Heretofore they occupied a place on the bridge floor on the east side of the bridge and were encased with heavy boards. As now arranged they will be hidden from view and will be protected from the weather by the bridge floor. Rathbone Sister*, Mrs, Lola Calvort, grand chief of Indiana, will be with us at .the evening session, and it Is earnestly desired that all sisters be present. —M. E. C.

Latest Explorations In the Peru Oil Field, Good Wells Found West and Sontnwest From the Original Well "The prospects for finding an outlet for the so-called pool Is now brighter than ever," says the Peru Sentinel, "and the oil boom has been given a new Impetus. The best wells are now being found where It was supposed that the fluid could not be found in large paying quantities. On account of tbe failure of the Ger- manla well near the woolen mills and the small flow of oil found in tbe well in tbe canal bed and the well on the Swift lease between the canal and river it was supposed by many that oil could not be found . in paying quantities at any point near the river. As a conse- vuence of this opinion most wells which have been drilled in during the past two or three weeks were located on the hill northwest of the city and at other points not near the river. The idea that oil does not exist in large quantities near the river will no longer hold good, for one of the very best wells yet drilled In was completed Wednesday at the southeast corner of Brownell's grove at the canal. Trenton rock was found here at a depth of 950 feet and when penetrated fifteen feet 200 feet of oil was found In the casing. The well Is further south than any other well in the field, which is good news Indeed for those holding leases In that direction." In another item tbe Sentinel says: Another well came in about tbe same time as the Klondike company's well on tbe Sbaddlnger lot on West Main street, in this well tbe rock was found 853 feet below the surface of the earth. In less than six hours after drilling ceased the oil was running out of the top of the casing. This well is the farthest west in the field and shows that all the oil Is not ,o be found over the hill." CHICAGO MARKETS Kecehed Daily by W. W. Mllner, at Q. A. R. Building. Chicago, Nov. 8, 1897.

A room with a northerly exposure will admit of brighter colors than a bright, sunny one. Soft hues are preferable for walls forming a background for the suitable display of picture. 1 ! and ornaments. For a well lighted room, warm aud rich colors are suitable, but avoid a bine ceiling, as this reflects tbe sunlight too crudely. If the room is not well lighted, fine, brighter (higher keyed) colors should be selected. In all cases the ceiling should be light and the furniture in harmony with the dominant color of the room. —Decorator and Furnisher. , Do you know what baking powder is bought by the Government for the families of army officers?

The Accident Happened at Sbarpgyille on tbe Indianapolis Olrision. Benjamin Moore, aged 62 years, widower, who was engaged In the business of. general merchandising at Sbarpsville, was instantly killed at that place Saturday afternoon by Panhandle passenger tram No. 18, south bound, which left this city at 1:05 o'clock. Moore had been at the Sharpsville depot and was In the act of crossing the track. He had just stepped off of the platform when he was struck squarely in the back. The body was hurled fifty feet, falling to one side upon the platform. The skull was crushed in and the bones broken so that the heap of quivering flesh L more nearly resembled a mass of pulp than anything jlse. Moore has been partially deaf many years and bad not noticed that ihe train was approaching. Tbe ;rain causing the death of Moore was _n charge of Conductor Matthews and Engineer Burns. It does not stop at ,he station unless flagged and consequently was going at a high rate of speed. It had passed tbe scene of the accident some 300 yards before it- could be brought to a standstill. The train crew oflered every service, but life was found to be extinct and there was nothliog for them to do. Moore had lived at Sharps- vllle about forty years. No Cine Found. George W. Bennett has failed to discover any clue that leads him to hope for the recovery of his handsome sorrel mare, stolen last week. He went to Tiptoa last Saturday to look at an animal found there which tallied somewhat with the description of bis, but he found little re- eemblanca. Sotice. There will be a joint meeting of the board of managers of the Home of the Friendless Wednesday, Nov. 10, at the Home at 7:30 p. m. to transact important business. MRS. E. L. GEABLE, Pres. MES. J. F. TEQUTiLiu, Sec. Throwing Kice at We-ddiojr*. The effort to stop the old custom of throwing rice at weddings has proved a failure. The argument against it urged by the antirioe crusade was the danger thac lav in the indiscriminate throwing of small, hard particles, serious accidents having resulted from it, especially to the eyes. The antirice agitation was short lived, and now that it has been crushed out entirely people seem To be trying to make tip for the lapse by more elaborate indulgence in the old custom. At a recent wedding breakfast in Xew York, tells The Sun, a young electrician tried a new device on the assembled company. It was a paper ball, filled with rice, and it stood iu the center of the table and was so completely covered with flowers that it was not noticed by any of the guests. By an ingenious arrangement of springs die ball could be broken and the rice scattered in every direction by merely touching an electric push button which the young man, had fixed in the floor right under his seat At an opportune moment the joker set his machine off, sprinkling everything on the table with rice. The rice bomb was a tremendous success, and the electrician has been asked to fix up similar bombs for a half dozen weddings to take place among hi* friend* Chi* win' Reasonable Prices.
