In two pulpits in the city wero farewell sermons preached on Sunday. At the Christian church Rev. S. W, Brown closed hie ministry in Logan, sport. The evening service was very largely .attended and three persons were taken into the church and bap- tised last evening. Rev. Brown's pastorate has been fraught with great success in this city and his resignation in widely regretted. He will begin his ministerial labors at Crawfordsville next Sunday but his family will not join him at that place for a couple of months yet. At the Cumberland Presbyterian church Rev. J. R. Lamb bade farewell to his congregation, preparatory to going back to college to complete his theological studies. Rev. Lamb, though young in the work is earnest and gives much promise for the future. By the departure of these two gentlemen Logansport loses two faithful Christian workers and efficient pastors. May their future work be crowned with success as in the past. Ovcrmeyer (Suicided. It is now said that the death of Michael Overmeyer, the Rochester merchant who was found dying with a bullet hole in his body, Thursday night, was suicidal, and it is further, and strangely enough, started that Mr. Overmeyer's father killed himself under precisely similar circumstances s»me years ago; had sold his farm and after getting the cash for the-same grew so despondent over parting with his property that he shot himself. The late case was similar in that Overmeyer had just sold his store and had part ly prepared to move to Huntington. It appears that he afterward regretted the step, and it is said grew so despondent that his friends' feared he would repeat the actions of his father. Sure enough he was found dead, and although the Coroner's verdict announces that the deceased came to his death at the hand of an unknown party, it is generally believed that the unfortunate man took his own life. 1Vc»t Side Burglar*. Sunday evening during the absence of the family, sneak thieves entered the residence of Fred Boerger on the West Side and stole a few small articles of jewelry and $12 in cash. When the family returned from a call on a neighbor they found things turned topsy turvey, and the above loss was discovered. Mr. Boerger has no idea who the guilty parties are. About a week ago the residence of Charles Wcerster, also on the -West Side, was entered under similar circumstances and a small sum of money and a few- articles of small value were taken. WEAEY OF LIFE. Suicide of a Working Girl in New . York City, Friendless and Out of Employment She Leaps to Her Death from the Roof of n Five-Story Building. .\ HA1I STOKV. NK\V YUISK, \Uirch 10.—Policeman Becker, on Thirteenth, street between First Avenue mid Avenue A, stumbled over the body of Ml woman. It was limp and lifeli'.ss. She had, to all appearances, buen di-ad some time. Both her leg's and one shoulder were broken and her head bruised. The natural uoncHisiun wa,s that she had jumped from the rout' of the house. It was a five-story tenement. A search developed no clew to the tragedy at first. Nobody «MS missing, but the tenants recoffni/.cd the 'body as that of Lizzie (luuther. who ruid lived it) the house three years ago and was still well known there. Lizzie was 82 years old and foT-ewoina.n in the Knickerbocker knitting mill until a year and a half ago, when the mill was burned and she lost her job. Since then she has not done much work, so far as could be learned. She was from appearances a J ewess and must once have been g-ood looking-. She left a letter saying that on account of her poverty she was going to commit suicide by jumping- from the roof of the house. ___ DEATH RATES" OF cm ES.

Indianapolis Journal: "The fact that sugar will be- free of duty on April 2, is likely to add to the work of the custom-house of Indianapolis far beyond what was expected a, week ago. Demands are coming- from various places over the State, and some from Illinois, for officers to make release from bonded cars on that momentous day. Applications for such officers have been received from Danville, 111., Logansport, Huntington, Peru, Kokomo, Muncie, Anderson, Marion, Richmond. Terre Haute and LaPorte,, and others will follow. The amounts thus far designated are large. Richmond, for instance, asks release for twenty car-loads; Muncie will have about ten, Danville, 111., ten, and Terre Haute thirty or more. A prominent broker of this oity say that the demand is already .so Jar that an advance in price is probable but that need not be dreaded, as i will not be upon the old price, bu the new. Sugar manufaturers are crying out that they will be unable to meet this demand, coming as it doe: all at once, and will be compelled to quit selling any more of their swee commodity to be shipped in bond •After the first week in April the rush will be over, and the entire country will have adjusted itself to free sugar.
