CHRTSASTBEMUM SHOW At the Masonic Temple Last Evening was WelliAttended, The chrysanthemum show at the Masonic Temple, held under the auspices of the Ladies of the Eastern Star, opened last night.

A GRAND ACTOR. Clay Clement In "4 Southern Gentle- No play of the day has induced the discussion and the attention a» being devoted by the newspapers of the country to Mr. Clay Clement's "A Southern Gentleman.'' It has had the whole gamut of criticism launched at it, from scathing abuse to the most praiseful commendation. It has in several cities, though it is yet young, broken from the columns of the critic into the space devoted to editorial comment, upon the event of the day. This has been the case In Chicago, in Dulutb, In Sioux City, Omaha, and Kansas City, aod these are about the only cities in which the play has been seeo. In nearly all of the newspaper opinions 30 far expressed, has it been conceded that- Mr. Clement's play is a good one. That 'A southern gentlemen" is indeed a gentleman, and the discussion hinges upon the question of whether he is a Southern gentleman or not In the meantime, the audience is always pleased and the people show the keenest appreciation of Mr. Clement's gentlemen, seeming not to care a rap from what section of the country he may have been taken. STILL SAUCY. Are the Dehorned Mariou Elks—Mortgage their Jfroperty. Realizing the fact that if their charter was taken up, everything they had, including the bank account of the lodge, would go to the grand lodge, the dehorned Mariou Elks, be- eng in debt to Corbett & Mehaffey for several billiard tables, etc., gave that firm a mortgage on the 'urni- ture, paraphernalia, etc., reduced their bank account, and were then ready for what they knew would be the result of their foolish break. Their talk of winning tte Fitzsimmons case in tbe grand lodge is bosh. There is not a lodge of the order but what has set the seal of disapproval upon the iniation of Fitzsimmons, and the fighter will never be recognized as an Elk. WILL 800 S BE COMPLETED. New Telephone Line Between Logansport and Xotomo. The poles for the new telephone line between this city and Kokomo have been placed in position and the wires will be strung within the nexb few days.

The recent rain did considerable damage to the central school building, which will necessitate anon other coat nf paint to the exterior. The roof was painted red and now the walls bear evidence of the same hue in many places. The work has to be done over again. Edward Robertson, a fifteen-year- olrt boy living at Wolcott, accompanied by his brother, came here yesterday to have an operation performed by Dr. C. L. Tbomas.

Of the ANNUAL KETREAT Clergy of the Episcopal Clmrch of Indiana. A ceremony of importance in the Episcopal church began Monday at tbe Grace cathedral, Indianapolis. It is known as the retreat of the clergy of the diocese. During the two days that the service will last the clergy will be in close confinement, the object being to seek by prayer and consecration deeper spiritual power. Such services are common in tbe Catholic church. This will be the first service of the kind in tbe Episcopal diocese since Bishop White was ordained. The bishop says, however that retreats of the clergy of the diocese will be held regularly hereafter. He is hopeful of a good attendance. The retreat will be conducted by Bishop Lelghton Coleman, of the diocese of Delaware. His Nume Is Geiger. Clay Clement, who will make his appearance here Friday evening, in his new play, "A Southern Gentleman," is an Illinois man. His family name is Gelger, Clement L Gelger being the way it is written at home Mr. Clement's father and his only brother still live on the Illinois farm, near Peoria, his father being of German extraction and his mother a Kentucky woman. Mr. Clement graduated at the Chicago university and subsequently studied three years in Germany. His knowledge of German enabled him to create the character of Baron Hohenstauffer. Mr. Clement's parents intended to fit him for the law, but fate aaJ inclination to literature and the art of acting willed another path to fame. BABY'S SMOOTH, FAIR SKIN A Grateful Mother Writes this Letter- Tells all about Her Troubles when Baby Broke out with Scrofula Sores. "At the a?e of two months, my baby began to have sores brea'.-: out. on his right cheek. We used all the external applications that we could think or hear of, to no avail. The sores spread all over one side of his face. We consulted a physician and tried his medicine, and in aweefc the sore was gone. But to my surprise in two weeks more another scrofulous looking sore appeared on baby's arm. It grew worse and worse, and when he was three months old, I began giving him Hood ; s Sarsaparilla. I also took Hood's Sarsaparilla, and before the first bottle was finished, the sores -were well and have never returned. He is now £our.years old, but he has never had any sign ot those Bcrofulons sores sicce he was cured by Hood's Saisaparilla, for which I feel very gratefnL My boy owes his good health and smooth, fair stein to this great medicine."

Ferguson & Jenks. 322 Market Street, Loganspcrt, Indiana SOT ENAMORED OF OIL. A Trftiellng Man Speaks Disparagingly of Oil Booms. A well known traveling man who resides In Ohio and whose work takes him through the oil towns of that state is of the opinion that an oil boom Is one of the worst booms that jan strike a town. He had been in Peru for a day and had observed the mstle and bustle that now charac- .erizes the place. "Within a short time," said he, 'Peru will be one of the deadest towns in northern Indiaca. Mark my words for It. The oil field in ,hat vicinity will be drained dry in a short time. Then there will be a general collapse and Peru will fall •>ack to where she stood when the boom came. Then will follow aa e"x- odus that will leave new houses vacant and the hotels empty. I can buy property In Ohio cities that cost 85,000 for $1,500. They are oil boom cities, where the field has been drained." "Some of these days," he continued, "gas will fail throughout the Indiana gas field and you will see as dead a string of towns as can be found anywhere. My business calls me into contact with all the leading manufacturing concerns in the gas belt acd I say to you that when gas falls most of the manufacturing concerns will be moved out of there. Cheap fuel is all that holds them there now. Booms, whether from gas or or oil, do a town no good in the .ong run. They attract a thriftless population or a speculating character of citizenship." THE CiKE WALK. The New Furniture Store OPENS TOMORROW. Highly Enjoyed by a Large Number of People at St. Vincent Bazaar. Tbe attendance at tbe St. Vincent de Paul bazaar last evening was very arge.
