As one man will do all the collecting himself now instead of the boys as has been done heretofore, it will take him several days to get around. Subscribers will confer a great favor on the collector by having their change handy and thus not cause him to make a return call for it. One of the pleasant features of Dr. Rogers management of the hospital for the insane is the line of entertainments he provides for the amusement of the patients. Last. .evening the stage of the pretty little theater built in the institution, was occupied by the military band and the: boys - did much to lighten the lot of the unfortunates confined in the institution. They gave a • 'black face" entertainment, introducing a little.. comedy, : songs, dances and orchestral music .and the concert by-.the band, all of which was pleasingly carried out and very entertaining. • Rochester Sentinel: Speculation as to the identity of the murderers is.the. single topic, of conversation. Until yesterday many were undecided whether it was murder or suicide, but vhen Messrs. Jacob VanTrump, ex- Sheriff Butler and George Gosf. fOU>T> THE rOCKET BOOK lying on the ditch bank about one lundred vards from the scene of death, the suicide theorists deserted their fixed opinions. The book was open and contained four promissory notes of $69.70 each, a receipt from Dr. Overmyer, and a redeemed order of forty dollars. This virtually exploded the suicide theory and establishes the fact beyond a reasonable doubt that the robbers ran west along the ditch bank and, taking the bills from the pocket book, threw the latter down as a precaution against detection by being caught in possession of it. There can, therefore, be but one con- elusion and that is that Overmyer was murdered for his money and that the robbers knew he had the money. The only person who was near the scene of the struggle was James Onstott who was coming to town by way of the Dawson lot and' 1IEAKD THE STKL'CGLE on the bridge after he had passed it about two hundred feet. He testified that lie thought it was some boys returning from hunting as there was stamping on the bridge, .a gun discharged, and groans from someone as in mockery. He had turned north on the street toward the Tribbett barn, but stopped, and while waiting, saw, in the darkness, the outlines of two men walking leisurely toward town on Pearl street, and he then came up town. He did not hear Mrs. Overmyer scream and met no one going toward the bridge. He also heard someoneValking down from the direction of Miller's house as he passed from the field to the street just north of the bridge. The relatives and friends of the dead man have no svidence which justifies them in fastening suspicion upon anyone, and the officers are therefore working diligently on the mystery wiih the hope that some slight clue may guide them tc the capture of the villains whose identity at this time seems to be safely concealed from the lynx-eyed law. LADIES OF THE G. A. II. Celebrate the First Anniversary of tlie Institution of tlie local Circle Last Evening. Just a year ago last evening an earnest band of ladies met in Halls' Business College and with the assistance of Logansport Post G. A. R. instituted Lincoln Circle No. 1 Ladies of theG. A. R. Sir.ce that night the local circle has expanded until now there are some forty members, with every promise of the membership doubling during the next year. The first anniversary was fittingly celebrated by the circle last evening- in their lodge room, Castle hall, and a large crowd was in attendance to enjoy the pleasing program arranged for the occasion. Short addresses, songs, recitations, reminiscences, etc., formed a program of exceptional interest and the dainty refreshments which were served afterward were none the less enjoyed. The ladies of Lincoln Circle proved themselves excellent entertainers and future "socials" of this character will be awaited with interest by veterans and their families: The Ladies of the G. A, R. is an order formed as an aux Hilary to the _-rand Army of the Republic and i founded on principals which must insure its rapid growth. It admits to its membership only mothers, wives' daughters and sisters, of members of the G. A. R. and in its nature is charitable and beaeficient. The order was, instituted in Illinois four years ago, and shortly afterward consoli dated with the Ladies Loyal Legion and took on the name it now bears From the report of the workings of the order read last evening it was shown that during the last year th order expended tor general relief $4,749.61 and in aid of the G. A. R. $1,806.32. There are in the country 176 circles with a total membership o 6,256. Two circles have been instituted in this State since Lincoln circl organized a year ago, one at Ne\ Albany and one at JeHersonville CklniCN of Normandy. There will be a stage rehearsel o the "Chimes, of Normandy" with full orchestra at the opera house to night at 7:30 prompt. Come early an 'get through early. ' ' PROF. DEMOHEST.

HARRY FRANK, "TO BE SURE." P S. Mr. Frank is now in New York City buying for his 2 stores. Wilson, Humphreys & Co., 2OO and 2O2 Fourth St. Competition As We Have Found It. We've found many kinds of competition in our 29 year's experience, and we've learned to like it—most of it. Advertising Competion. There's the competitor who has advertised us widely. He has enthusiastically claimed that his prices beat McCaffrey's, while knowning better. McCaffrey was his target, and people learned that we were the thorn in his flesh because he could not sell at what we could. . Deceiving Competition. Some have put their prices on one thing for a day or two at less than manufactures could made it for, then said "compare with McCaffrey's pub-. lished prices." People soon found out that that was the only price they had within reason. Fearful Competition Some have boasted of the lowest prices without, naming one of them. They were afraid of something—and.that something was the prices .that they claimed to undersell. Petty Competition The majority have never tried to meet us, but have said what they could at their prices. Wide awake .people left them alone. What it Has Done For Us. This competition has built our business. It was only'by having lower price?, better qualities and a wider assortment than others that we.. drew our trade. And that is what is increasing it. M. McCaffery|& Co.
