[Knfcred u ieoond-oliu« mattol • « tte LogMU- port t-oit Office, February 8, 1888.1 _ WEDNESDAY MORNING. FEB. 2t PBOT. Me "OOK of Trinity College, Hartford, Conn., at ft he»rinff last week before the judiciary committee of the Connecticut Legislature reiterated Ihe charge that the Democratic National Committee sent $100,000 Into that State to carry U for Cleveland In the Presidential election of 1892. The Philadelphia Press commenting thereon savs: A he revelation waa first made by ex Governor Waller, a leading Demo. crat of Connecticut, over a year ago. It created a profound sensation at the lime and it has since caused much comment in ihe newspapers and in political circles. Professor MeCouk has made u, wido reputation ai tin invoeUgalur iulO the prucucu of venal voilng In Corjnecii- uut. lite rebGcircbes, prio\.ea in tho newspaperu aud in mag- nzlnea, Bbuwud him t^u-t itere le a pure&tisable element rung'. ing Irom 1-1 to 25 per cent, in many of tho towns of the Slate. It wus to purchase thw vo;e that the Oumocrata used their enormous corruption fund of $100,000 in 1892. Protestor McCook said among other things at tho hearing on Wednesday: ••A citizen, whose name I am not at liberty to disclose, told me of an instance of a chock for $50,000 being given by a gentleman o{ Connecticut "or tho National Committee and another check for $15,000 to tho Central Committee. 1 bolievo ho paid even more than these amounts to the National and State Committees.'' It doea not need any etrttch of the Imagination to tell who the gentleman referred to Is. Professor McCook undoubtoly meant a notorious broker and owner of a yacht OD which Mr. Cleveland frequently takes pleasure trips. So it seems that at the very moment trover Cleveland stood up In Lenox Lyceum in New York cliy and made hi? grossly false charge that tbe Re • publicans wore trying to buy the election, his own most intimate friends were in possession of |1CO,000 to buy the electoral vote of Connecticut, LOGASsronT is honored with the proaence of tho Grand Lodge of Knights of Honor, the delegates in. eluding many prominent men from different parts of the State. This organization is one of those that do a world of good by distributing means to tho widows and children of thtir deceased members. The members of the local lodges of tho order are doing everything in tbelr power to make it agreeable for the visitors who are enjoyingthelrhospltality. Next mooth Logansport will again bo honored by the meeting of one of the leading religious bodice of the State, the Northern Indiana Conference of the Methodist Episcopal church. Bishop Warren, one of tho most prominent of the heads of this large and influential religious organization will preside over Its deliberations and cur people will be able to hear the eloquent bishop expound the word of God. Tbe conference will bring here over four hundred clergymen and lay delegates whom our hospitable citizens will entertain with pleasure. REPRESENTATIVE business men are making an earnest effort to raise funds for the Home for the Friendless and it is hoped that thoy will be able to raise the amount necessary to save this worthy institution. Tho Homo lias already accomplished much-good and the ladies who have charge of this charitable work should be assisted in their endeavor for the public good. K is absolutely recessary ibat »ix bun. dred dollars should be raised at once if the Home is to bo saved, and cor- tainly our people can contribute .this amount to preserve to excellent an institution. Already the committee has collected half xhe amount neo- essary and It is hoped that the other three hundred dollars will be forth coming. The members of the committee will continue to call on buiinesa j men and other citizens and they should ( be well received and not be sent away j empty handed.

They Schemed for a Wholn Afternoon to Get the Drop on Each Other Without Soceon—riem«mni Ulver• lonn of Gun Fighter*. "One of the thing's that strikes a tenderfoot with surprise," said a western land surveyor to the New York Sun man, "is the way the toug-h men in the far west, when they happen to run counter to men of their own kind, will refrain from shooting- until one gets the drop on the other. . So quick and ready are the shooting' men of the real sort that when facing- each ' other on guard DOithci- one can fire so quickly that tho other will not return the shot -before falling. Thus it may happen that tvro bad men who have sworn death to each other may meet often without exchanging shots because neither one can catch tin; other unprepared. Take the case of Wild Hill and Jim Curric, for example. Doth men of undoubted nerve and skill, they were enemies for years — by some accounts they exchanged shots once at long- range—but thov never pulled triggers on cuch other at close quarters, and when Bill was assassinated by a wretch years afterward at Deadwood it closed the feud. "Cl.-iy Allison, the New Mexican dead shot and mankiller, found one man who wasn't afraid to stand np to him and •was just as quick with his gun as himself. That man was Mace liow- inan, some time a deputy sheriff of Colfax count}-. They spent a whole afternoon tog-ether, each trying to get the drop on the other, but neither one Could accomplish it. It was a performance, though, of a kind to make an inexperienced man shiver. There was bad blood between them, and this afternoon when they met in Lambert's barroom and pot to drinking the enmity began to rankle. It was perfectly understood between them that if either one got the drop on the' other, the slower man would die, and this being agreed on both men maneuvered for an opening. Facing each other with such pleasant intentions they laughed and joked and drank together, all the time watching each other like cats. As a diversion in the proceeding they would lay their pistols, the barrels crossing, on the bar counter, step back to the other side of the room, and thcn^ at an agreed signal, make a rush for the pis- tals. Hnt neither could seize his. weapon rjuicldy enough to get the advantage of the other. "Once as they were taking a drink together Bowman, with his whisky half way to his lips, ^suddenly smashed the glass to the counter and drew his pistol, lint as it came up Allison's revolver-met it half way. -The men were look'iig into each other's eyes, and a j sign in cither's that a trigger was to be j pulled would have meant the death of ' both men, which was more killing than either one wanted. "This dalliance with death went on through the afternoon, until at last, at the coming of • evening, the two men, becoming savage, declared that they would bring the duel to an end. They cleared the room of spectators, and had already taken their places in corners diagonally opposite to begin shooting, when W. 11. Morloy, of Cimarron, a strong friend of both men, rushed in between them at the risk of his life, and by expostulations and entreaties managed to get them off tho idea of the duel and mutually to agree to separate without further trouble. So the two contestants backed out of the room at opposite doors and rode out of town different ways, saving an encounter which would almost certainly have resulted in the death of both." HEROISM OF A LUMBERMAN. Currylne a Wounded Comrado Forty JTllcK Through Cola »nd Snow. A young man, Henry Brault,. a resident of Peterboro, Ont., recently performed an act of heroism, actuated by friendship, which is worthy of record among the heroic deeds of heroic men of any age. The Manchester Union says that Brault and another 1 young man, John Jamieson, were at work in the wild Madrr.vaska region for the St. Anthony Lumber company. Jamieson met with a severe accident which rendered him delirious, and Brault started •witb him for civilization, where surgical treatment could be had. They had traveled on foot but a few hundred yards whoa Jamieson's strength gave out and he became helpless. Brault determined to save his companion if in his power, shouldered the invalid and started on his long, cold tramp of some forty miles to the nearest railroad*. Without a moment's sleep, and bearing, besides his human burden, a pack of provisions, Brault continued his j-iur- ncy for four days and nights, through cold and snow, until finally, almost as helpless from exhaustion and fatigue as his friend was from illness, he had the supreme satisfaction of reaching the end of his journey and placing Jamieson where he was able to bo properly treated. Such a feat of endurance seems almost incredible, and only a seasoned woodman, inured to hardship, could have accomplished it; and among those capable of it it is rare to find so striking an example of disinterested friendship, even when a human life is at stake. Whatever his station in life may be, young Brault deserves' to rank amonp nature's noblemen. DON'T LOOK FOR IT. Then*. !• no "S»fe»t C»r" on » R»Uroa4 *' <'•'" ' Train. •":• "Which is the safest car on a railroad' train?" repeated an old Detroil railroad.man, as he stroked his chin an£. se.emed to reflect on the query, ''.Well,' tiiebest answer lean make il that it'is the car which doesn't run ofl the' rails when all' others do, and which is left on the bank when th« rest of the train goes through a bridge." "You've traveled thousands of miles by rail?" "Yes; tens of thousands." "And been in half a dozen accidents?" "I've been in exactly seventeen, railroad accidents, l5ut some of them were hardly worth mentioning." "And do you locate yourself in anj particular part of the train?" "Xo. When I first began, traveling I wouldn't ride in any coach but the rear one. I had about two dozen reasons why that was the safest car, and for six or eight weeks I went rolling over the country feeling as safe aa if in ray own brick house. One night we lost too much time at a station and a special overhauled usand smashed into the rear coach. You'll think it funny, but out of sixteen people in that car I was the only one badly hurt. 1 had a leg and two ribs broken and covered with bvuises. When I was able to be out again I wcut dead back on the rear car." "And took tho next one to the smoker, eh?" "That's what I did. A dozen different railroad men had a dozen reasons apiece why that was the safest place, and for three or four mouths I rode ia that car and laughed ut the chaps who carried insurance policies. Then my fond dream oC safety was rudely shattered. The engine, baggage and smoking cars passed over a certain switch while running at the rate of forty miles an hour, but the forward trucks of my car caught somewhere and the car was twisted out of the train. Yes, sir. it was torn toose at both ends and rolled down an embankment, and not another car left the rails. We had two killed and a dozen hurt, but I got off the car with a badshakingup. My confidence in the first car was gone, however, never to be restored." "And then you took the middle of the train?" "I did. my son. Yes, I sat down and reasoned it out to my perfect satisfaction that the middle car of the train was as safe as sitting on the post office steps in Detroit. It was about a year before anything happened to undeceive me. One afternoon, when we were dusting along to make up lost time', wo crossed the tracks of another road just a few seconds too soon or too late, just as you will have it. An express train on the other road came booming along and waded right through us. It struck my car, of course, and what was left of it after the grand smash couldn't have been worked over into a wheelbarrow. Five killed was the record, and I got a broken arm, a scalp wound and a general bad shaking up.'' "And after that?" "After that and up to the present date I have no choice. I drop into a seat wherever I can find one and don't worry about accidents. I've known a whole train except the last coach to go through a bridge, and I've known every car but the last to pass safely over. In a head-on collision the forward coach may be smashed to splinters or it may rear up oa end and escape all injury,_ I was on a train once where a locomotive struck the rear car, rolled it aside without serious injury to anybody, and then killed or wounded every passenger in • the next coach. The man who goes hunting for the safest car on a train is throwing away his time. He may .take any car and travel for ten years and never even be delayed by a hot box; or he may settle down in the car of his choice and be killed in a ride of ten miles. I once saw twenty-two people smashed to a pulp in a coach, -and yet two fellows who were stealing a ride on the trucks underneath got off scot-free. Just buy a first class ticket, get aboard before the train goes and leave the rest to providence. If you win it's all right; if you lose your heirs can .n-et from three thousand to ten thousand dollars damages from the company."—Detroit Free Press. TVatcr a DUlnfcctant. It 5s a fact that appears to be not generally known, perhaps because it may not be generally credited, that pure, fresh, cold water is one of the most valuable disinfectants, inasmuch as it is a powerful absorbent. Every sick room should have a large vessel of "clear water, frequently renewed, placed near tho bed, or even beneath it This not only absorbs much of tho hurtful vapor, but by its evaporation it softens and tempers the atmosphere, doing away with the dryness which is so trying and depressing to an invalid, or even to persons in health, for that matter. It has frequently been shown, . by actual experiment, that troubled sleep and threatened insomnia are corrected by so simple a thing as. the j placinT of an. open bowl of water near the sufferer's bed.— Loadoajclegraph. vimer says a wnale may live 1,000 rears.
