Lafayette Journal: Dr. George F. Keiper was on Tuesday offered the position of physician to the insane asylum at Logansport, but he has decided to remain here and consequently declined. The first stage rehearsal of the •Chimes of Normandy" was given at the opera house last night. Mr. Demorest has got the chorus down into ine order, and a first-class production of the popular opera is assured. It is authoritively announced that Forepaughs show will be here during he season. The season will open at Cincinnati the first of next month: It s also reported that Wallace's circus vill open the season here about the Irst of May. The country schools of the county ,re closing one by one and in some ownships all have finished for, the erm. A number of reports of "last- ays" have been received at this office ut all are of such length as to preclude publication. Miss Viola Smith of Vermont, Ind,, who has been stopping with Mrs. J. D.Allison otthe West Side for the past few months attending Prof. Hall's commercial college, returned to her home yesterday being compelled on account of ill health to give up her studies before completing the course. Bert W. Ball who some months ago became connected, with the publication of the Weekly Camera at Boulder. Colorado, is now soaring to still greater heights, having made of his excellent Camera a daily. His part - ner is Fred P. Johnson and the paper is both aggressive and progressive. Realism on the stage has been' the cry of the theatre-going- public for Under the rules of the Pennsylvania Company an official lower in the rank than general superintendent is not en- | titled to a private car. It is intimated that in the near future J. J Turner, superintendent of the Pittsburg, Cincinnati & St. Louis division of the Pennsylvania lines, is to be promoted to a more important position. The Pennsylvania Company has obtained possession of the Maryland, Delaware & Virginia Railroad Company. The State of Delaware holds mortgages aggregating $600,000, which the Pennsylvania Company will pay off. It will also assume a'mortgage on the road for §250,000 held by the Farmers' Loan and Trust Company of New York. General Manager Willliams and Assistant General Manager Hill, of the Vandalia, will, within the next ten days, make a trip over the system for the purpose of deciding what improvements need be made this year in the way of bettering the physical condition of the property. In the management of this property the idea of President William R. McKeen has been to each year expend about the same sum o£ money in betterments until the road ranks among the best in the country. On the main line, between St. Louis and Indiana,polis, such a point has been reached, and but little now remains to be done excepting in the way of ' renewals of bridges, depots, and introducing interlocking signals, etc. The main line is now laid with heavy steel rail, and thickly cross-tied from Ic- dianapoiis to St. Louis, and well ballasted with gravel or broken stone. On the T. H. & L. division there is yet consideiable to be done in chis direction. As to its equipments the Vandalia ranks with the best. For some years past five to ten engines have been purchased each year, until the road is now practically equipped with new locomotives. Its passenger equipment, which has mostly been built in the company's shops, is second to none. A. N. Grant, of Kokomo, a prominent attorney, is on trial this week, charged with forgery. He is accused of uttering a forged abstract to land in Carroll county, sold two years ago to Alvia Martin, of Delphi, the abstract showing a clear title, when ' in fact -there was a one-thousand dollar mortgage on the property, on which the defendant kept the interest paid. The State also all«ges that the signature of Elias Heistand, as Recorder of Carroll county, was necessarily a forgery, as he died in 1885. Defendant claims that the indebtedness of the 'land had been assumed by his father, who gave his personal note, and he supposed the mortgage cancelled; further, that the abstract was not entered • as genuine, but as a copy made by Heistand years ago, with the necessary additions bringing it down to date.

HARRY FRANK; "TO BE SURE." R; S. Mr. Frank: is now in New York City buying for his 2 stores. Wilson, Humphreys & Co., 20O and 2O2 Fourth St. Readers of the Century Magazine will remember the interesting article on the War Prison at Johnson's Island in the current number. At the anniversary social of the Ladies of the G. A. R., Wednesday night, this article was read and a series of photographs belonging to Mrs. E. A. Hall, being a set of the original photographs from which the cuts illustrating the article were made, were displayed. These photographs Mrs. Hall secured when a girl at Sandusky during the time the prison was in use, and they were laid away at her home. The Century article recalled them to mind, and the old time stained pictures were brought forth from their retreat and were viewed with much interest the other night at the social. some time past, and authors and managers have tried experiment after experiment in their efforts to sapply the demand. Robert Buchanan bore this craving in mind vfhon he wrote "Alone in London," and the result is,as might be expected from so ingenious a writer one of the.most perfect bits of realism ever witnessed ' within the four walls of a theatre.- The play comes to .Dolan v s to-morrow, night. In the circuit court yesterday the court overruled the motion.for a new trial made by the defendants in the case of O'Connor vs. the Commissioners of White and Carroll counties. The motion for a new trial in the case of the State vs. Frank Bending, found guilty of obtaining money under false pretenses, was sustained, and Banding's boni was increased to $1,500. The motion for a new trial made by the defendant in the case of Swerenger vs. Thomas, brought here from Carroll county, was sustained. Court will probably adjourn for the term to-day. A Washington special to the Indianapolis Journal states that the condition of Mrs. Owen to-day changed for the better. ,She materially improved, and there were strong hopes of her recovery during the day, but she is tonight in that same precarious condition of .twenty-four Hours ago,, and there are grave apprehension as to the result. IVIiat, Tills atlttarvelous Marion? Marion Chronicle: A dead horse lies in a gully on Spencer avenue. 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 ol it. Advertising Competion. There's the competitor who lias advertised us widely. He has enthusiastically claimed that his prices beat McCaffrey's,, while knowoing better. McCaffrey was his target, and.people learned that we were the thorn ID his flesh because he could not sell at what we could. ' •-v : •,•">"•• Deceiving Competition. Some have put their prices on one thing foi a day or two i at less than manufactures could made it for, then said "compare with McCaffrey s published-prices." People soon found out that that was the only price they had within reason. , i 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 is. ' , , . IV. '• ' ^ -,' This competition has built our business. It-was only by having lower prices, better qualities and a wider assortment than others that we drew our trade. And that is what is, increasing it. ; ,. : . > !: :' : \ • M. McCaffery & Co. &.,.
