Cornelius, the local representative o€ the Indianapolis, Logansport & Chicago' Railroad company, appeared- before the Board of Works yesterday morning aud asked permission to lay and maintain tracks into tlhe dry, from tlie intersection of Schuumnnu avenue with the West line of the right of way of tho Big Four Railroad company, iu North Indianapolis, to the Union- tracks, west of Capitol aveu-ue. The petition of the company states tliat it Is organized un- dor the laws of Indiana for the jnr.'puso of CMistruetJug a railroad between Indianapolis and Chicago, by. way of Lo- gauspoit, ami asks permission to lay its tracks across pertain streets and alloys In Indianapolis i'oi 1 rail road purposes, under such terms aivd coudii.ioiv* as to thoir crossing and use as may lie prescribed by the hoai'tl. the company agreeing to outer into such contract as may be [imposed in the public Interest and just to it. The petition is sinned by Kdw.-ml N. Talbot, pivslilont. anil Qulucy A. Meyers, both of Logausport. Uccetirly Frank A. Mans ami other property owners petitioued - the bourd to open New York street. Vermont street aud parallel-alleys across the old mill race, asserting that they had platted ground west of town, which would be made more valuable if streets were opened tliat would give access lei it. The board granted this pcill'lou, b'.it took -no act.io:i Cot 1 vacating the mill race for street purposes, although this aelion was urgc-d. Local representatives of the Indianapolis. - Logaiisjxwt & Chicago liailroail company say that the company has acquired the fee simple to the old mill race by the expenditure of a large sum of money, and they declare that the movement to -vacate tyie mill race for street purposes has been made to shut oft! the company's entrance into the city. If pcraUssion is given the company to lay tracks, it 1(3 said that the work of constructing the road to Logansport will commence at once, and that the line will bo iu operation within- the year. A right at' way has been secured from Logansport to this eiity, and that section of bh-e road will be completed before any track is laid to Chicago, the ultimate terminus of the roail. Logansport now has no'direct railway facilities to this city, 1 and residents o£ that city cannot reach the State capital without coming in n round-about way. There is a section of country between here ami Logansport twenty-flve or thirty miles wide that has no railroad outlet The promoters of the I, L. & C. road c'lulin tliat the opening of this country would'prove of material, advantage to the city. They say that unless? they are given access to the Un-iou Station the road will not be built, as they must have the privilege, of making connections iu ordler. to get traffic. It Is claimed that the scheme has passed the stage of being "on paper," and that arrangements have been made to secure the -necessary capital for tho'undertak- ing. The President is now in Chicago (ilgning a series of bonds which will be sold to raise funds for grading and laying tracks. The entire issue will be placed to the hands-at Eastern investors within a few days, -Several propositions for the location of freight, yards, some of them very advantageous, have been made to. the company, but the details of the company's plans will not be given out at present- ; The board postponed action until Mayor Tiiggart's return. A further conference will then be arranged, when the city attorney can be present. EAILROAD NOTES. , ,, .Totra.

A correspondent writes, urging the need of immediate action, if the A.frlcan elephant- is to be saved from speedy extinction. "I desire to call attention," he says, "to the opportunity which our protectorate over Somnliland gives ui lor constituting a portion of that country a sanctuary for the remaining herds of those animals—an opportunity so favorable in all respects that it seems only necessary to state the case to Insure the adoption of this .measure. ''01 late years Somalilnnd has been traversed by numerous parties, of sportsmen, and the herds of elephants which a few years ago inhabited the mountain range behind Berbera have been driven out. Tin's took place in tho belt of country, the hunting in which is now reserved for the use of officers of the Aden garrison., These herds, or the remnants of them, have tnke-n refuge more tlian a hundred miles further to the west, in the country of the Gada- bnrsi, to the south of Zeiln. "This' large tract haa been recently added to the Aden reserve, \vhlch. therefore now again contains elephants. My suggestion is that,thc shooting of elephants should be prohibited within-the whole of the reserve. Great advantages are gmntcd to the officers of the Aden garrison, which I should be the last to g-rndg-e them, tnirl it is n small concession to ask them to make in return— tunt, within curtain specified limits, they should abstain altogether from • killing elephants. I do not for a moment believe that these gentlemen, who are g-ood sportsmen, would oppose this meiisiirc. Even if the privilege were nominally retained for them, it would not be of long- duration. The experience of the past would be repeated. It is not that the animals are exterminated; the essential fact to be remembered is that a. sing-le shot fired at one member of the herd, is enough to make a whole blind abandon that part of tlic country. "This belt of country is particularly favorable for the constitution of such a sanctuary. It is comparatively near home, and therefore likely to be under constant observation. I saw tracks of elephants on the 15th clay from leaving- London. The close supervision by tho assistant residents, who are able and -experienced administrators, stationed on the coast, would be comparatively easy, owing- to the fact that numerous parties of sportsmen traverse the region in question .every year, and would, of course, report! They arc nlso'kopt informed by native caravans, who visit the coast for pnrposesof trade, .and who, owing to the wise and just treatment. which they have received, are our fast friends. The Somali's are unarmed, except with spears, and th^re- foro have not the power, even if they hail the will, to go .behind the restriction. They decline to ent the flesh of elephants; therefore an elephant killed, is a ton of meat wasted, which is a thing abhorrent to us al). The region in question, which is mountainous, with fairly abundant forests and river beds bordered with dense jungle, in peculiarly attractive to elephants. "Let mo deal with possible objections. I have heard it urged that the officers at Aden would make so little use of the right that there IB no purpose in restricting them. I do not' think they Would.make this claim for themselves. On the contrary, I have reason -to expect the heartiest cooperation from the authorities at Aden. It fa obvious that a sanctuary iu which the favored few are allowed to go on killing elephants is no sanctuary at all. It has been said fha-t restriction .for this area would be. useless, as tho Abysslnlans, who have guns, raid it in search of ivory; but to thia I reply—-first, that such raids should'be prevented, and, secondly, if the elephants were thus har- rassed, they would find a refuge in the eastern part of the reserve, which they frequented less than ten years ago, and which k out of reach of the Abyssinian frontier. . "A memorandum embodying these' considerations, haa been forwarded-to the India office. It has, I believe, been favorably entertained by the secretary of state, and forwarded to the government of Bombay, under whose political supervision Somaliland lies. My purpose in ^writing to you is to invite an expression of opinion from naturalists, sportsmen, and, not least, from those interested in the future of Africa. The question of. once-more utiyzing 'the African elephant, as was certainly done in Ptolemaic times, may be one for subsequent consideration. The preservation of the race from extinction is urgent. .Two or three years'hence it may be too late so far asSomalilAnd is concerned."—London Times. •!

A good story is told of (he cleverness of a woman in a transaction with an insurance adjuster. The pnrlor curtains look, fire, u r ud before the blaze was ex- tiLig-uisl'ed the cji-pct was badly scorched. After looking over tlie ciara- ng-e tho representative of the company S:i:d she. \v;is entitled to the value of a new carpet—SJOO. "IVe will allow you that sum," continued tlio man, ".it;d we will '.take your old carpet." "Why, what cnn yon do with it?" "Oh. we'll sell it second-band ;aul g-et back $10 o; 1 $12 at least," was.tha carck'us reply, intended t.o make the cor.ipany's attitude as generous as possible. "In that case," proraptly put in the owner of the carpet, "sell it to inc. .I'll give you £12 for it," The adjuster could only comply, with the result thai, this quick-witted chatelaine got a new parlor carpet with a handsome moqucttc 3oor covering as well for an upper room that needed it, for $12. Water In Rubber. Experiments with a hermetically sealed rubber bottle containing- water have shown that the rubber is not absolutely watertight. The filled bottle weighed 17 ounces 4 drams; at the end of one year the weight was 17 ounces 2 drams; nine years, 30 ounces; eighteen years, 14 ounces 2 drams; twenty-three years, 13 ounces t drams; twenty-five years, 7 ounces S drams; twenty-eight years, 3 ounces 14 drams; thirty years, 3 ounces 12 drams, the water being entirely gone. Wearing Away of Coins. Copper money wears away rapidly. In 100 years $500 worth, of pence would be worth only $250, while the. same amount of sovereigns would lose only 3 1 /,, per cent, of their original value, and $500 .worth, of shillings, on thu other handjj would..be worn to the extent of $1S5.".' The less the value .of coin, of course, the greater its wear and tear. A penny circulates at least 240 times as rapidly ns a sovereign. ONE FOURTH off oiTall Crash Suits.

How can we bull'd up -the consumptive's body as fast as the disease tears it down? Let us consider. Cough mixture -must be avoided because 'they frequently, contain- opiates which arrest the digestion. Tlieir only effex-t on the cough is by stupefying the nerves. Let them alone. All foods that are hard to digest must be avoided, especially fats and oils. Only those foods that-are easily'digested and assimilated should be sateu. Foods not tlius accepted by nature do no good; they do harm.
