One of the most effectually -taken in" and worst "done for" men in Logansport yesterday was Frank Tennant, the ever smiling clerk at the Murdock. Just how an old stager like Frank could be taken in in such a manner is inexplicable and -he has worn fringe on his trousers kicking himself since. The way the thing was done is really too funny to keep out of print and must be told even though the effect of the huge joke be lost in the telling. • • It must:first be.known that one of the most effective .bits of window lithographing displayed by McCarthy's Mishaps company, is the'picture ef the rear view of ' 'Dennis McCarthy" in one of his w'onderlul makeups. One of these lithographs was hanging in the window of T. W. Nichol's exchange, and yesterday afternoon Tom, Alf Anderson and some other equally- rare jokers were sunning themselves in front of the window and the lithograph incidentally entered into the conversation. Just then Frank Tennant came sauntering down the Street and joined .the boys. Frank had been sick for some days and looked as if he had just passed through a seige of old Wabash fever 'nag'. Had the day been other than as mild as it was his physician would scarcely have consented to his being out at all. His condition probably accounted for his falling into the trap which was presently sprung. Alf said: "Frank, that picture of McCarthy is quite a remarkable thing. Strangely enough the face bears a remarkable resemblance to Si Farrell and it has created.no end of talk down here." Tennant mildly gazed on the back of McCarthy's bald bead and apparently much impressed by what he had heard, said, "No, is that'so?" "Fact," said Alf earnestly, "If you don't believe it come inside and see for yourself." ... And the crowd went inside and Frank quickly raised the blind to see the wonderful face of "McCarthy." It then dawned upon him. He had been worked. He said never a word. What could he say? His smile, however, did not fail him. The crowd-also smiled, and -as Frank wiped his mus- tach afterward he found his voice and this is what hesaid, "Well,-.by Gosh!" The boys' afterward played th_e same thing on other passers by, among the victims being W. Herbert Graffi s of the Reporter, 'out how an old stager like Frank Tennant could .be thus worked is what puzzled all. THE LOCAL LEGISLATORS.

The common council of the city of Logansport met in regular session last evening, Mayor Cullen presiding 1 and all members present. Mr. Palmer submitted the lease of the Water Works board to the Jenny Electric Light and Power Co., for the strip of ground between the race and the river on which the electric light plant.is situated. The lease was approved. Mr. Tousley moved that the ordi : nance regulating the operations of the American Natural Gas company in Logansport be laid over until the next meeting- for further consideration. Motion adopted.

Hope cemetery: to Henry Potthoff lot 1,096 and to John H. Burnett for lot 792 in Mt. Hope. Chief Boerger, of the Fire Department, recommended the purchase of a new gong and indicator for No. 4 engine house, the same to cost §200, with $50 off for the old aparatus. On rnotiorTof Mr. Gleitz, the recommendation was adopted. Mr. Oleitz submmitted the following: Resolved, that whereas the school board has petitioned this council for permission to construct a sewer from the West Side school buildings to the Wabash river, and that plans have been prepared and adopted for a system of sewers, and as such plans does not meet the approval of the citizens of that locality on account of the cost of construction, therefore be it further Resolved, That the right of constructing a sewer from the West Side school building to the Wabash river, be and the same is "hereby granted to the Board of School trustees of the city of Logansport upon the same terms and conditions which were granted to said board for the construction of the sewer leading from the central building through Twelfth street to the Wabash river. This resolution provoked considerable discussion from various members of the council. Mr. Gleitz, representing the people of the First ward, those mostly interested in the sewer, assured the council that the people over there would vigorously oppose the construction of the sewer according to the plans. On motion of Mr. Me- Keever the resolution was laid over lor two weeks. Mr. Tousley moved that the city attorney be instructed to correspond with the Shirks, of Peru, with a view to settling the old canal matter without litigation. Carried. Mr. Truman moved that the clerk be instructed to notify the canal company to improve their property at Seventeenth street or the city would proceed to do so at the expense of the company. Carried. Mr. Truman also read a resolution that the water works trustees be instructed to lay water mains on Spear street from Fifteenth to Twenty-first street. Resolution referred to waterworks board. Mr. Winters read a petition from the interested-parties, asking that the name of the street known as West Canal street be changed to Melbourne Avenue. Matter referred to First ward councilman. Mr, .Winters 'presented a petition for an electric light at the intersection of Michigan avenue and Sugar street. Referred. Mr. Gleitz presented a petition for a light at the intersection of Market and Third street. Referred. Mr. Wade moved that the city commissioners and street committee look into the matter of raising the sidewalk from Berkley street to Fourth street. Carried. Mr. McKeever introduced a resolution that the water works board be instructed to lay water mains on Sycamore street from Columbia to Plumb street. Preferred.

Carried. The matter of an electric light at the intersection of Otto and Twentieth streets, was referred to the proper committee. Street Commissioner Heber recommended that the street ear company be compelled to fill in their track on a level with the streets, that the track was now so low in many places that the water gathers between the rails making the track impassible in these places. This recommendation was concurred in, and the City Engineer was instructed to notify the street railway company to put their track in repair or the Street Commissioner would proceed to do so at the company's expense. Mr. Palmer presented a resolution instructing the Clerk to issue the necessary notice of the coming city election according to the provisions of the new election law. Approved. Mr. Palmer introduced a resolution that the Street Commissioner improve the street in front of the city's property on Sixth street, also to improve the alley crossing between Broadway and Market. Carried. Adjourned. At the Opera HOIIKC. The appearance of Ferguson & Mack's excellent company in "McCarthy's Mishaps" at Dolan's last night was the comedy event of the season, and a large audience went perfectly wild at times over the many exceedingly ludicrous features of the play. Hilarity reigned supreme, but with Barney Ferguson in his inimitable character of Dennis McCarthy, at the head it could not Qhave been otherwise, and from the rise to the drop of the curtain the audience was convulsed with laughter. Ttie company and play are both known here by past successes, and are always welcome. Ferguson appears to -better advantage' every year, and his presence on the stage is in continual demand. Lizzie Daly, the phenomenal dancer is still with the company, and her presence added no little to the success of the performance, while her little daughter Viney, proved her title to the name of Daly by her exquisite dancing. The supporting company was well ballanced and effective, and all did good work. T^c knock about scene between Furgusoo and.>Dan Keating in the last act, is one oi the most uproariously funny things ever done on the stage here. ALONE IN LONDON. Of the great spectacular and sensational melo-drama to be played at Dolan's next Saturday night the Chicago Inter Ocean says: "A large audience last night witnessed the opening performance of William DeShetley's melodrama, 'Al«ne in London," by Robert Buchanan. It was effectively acted, the presentation being made with entirely new scenery. "Kan" was impersonated in an earnest and winning manner; the other parts were well played, and the interest and 'entnusiasrn of the audience were held continually. The scene of the rescue at the sluice evoked approval. Good Lookr*. Goods looks are more than skin deep, depending upon a healthy condition of ail the vital organs.
