Everybodv. is familiar with the adverse criticisms passed by shopkeepers on articles not purchased from them Here is an instance: A woman had a landsome Russian sable skin presented ;o her, with head and feet in perfect condition- She took it to a furrier to lave it made into a botv. The furrier examined it closely- "Beautiful skin, sn't it?" remarked the woman. "Yes," replied the shopman, "but I don't think rou have the ripht kind of a head on it." '"'Well,'* returned tlie Woman, "as t happens tc be tbe kind that God pnt on it, I think it will stay." The little town ol Flora, sixteen miles southwest of Logansport In Cur- roll county, was visited by one of ihe most destructive Crea in its history last evening. For hours the volunteer firemen and the citizens fought the devouring element, aad by midnight its spread was prevented and it was practically under control. Six buainess blocks in the business portion of town, and two residences were destroyed, and others were more or less damaged. Tho loss was estimated at about $40.000, which is only partly covered by insurance. The origin of the destructive fire was an overturned lamp at the rear of one Of stores. The flames spread rapidly, and for a time the village was threat ened with complete destruction. THE FODH SEASONS. A BellsHtfat EuiertAlnnient nt <he Flr»t Preabyicriau Church ta*t One of the most delightful entertainments ffiven recently in Logansport was that presented at tha First Presbyterian church lastevenlnu under the auspices of tbe Youoa: Women's Missionary Society of the church. The idea carried out throughout the entertainment, which consisted of musical selections, readings and tableaux, was that of the seasons. The opening number.apiano and vio lln selection, was very acceptably rendered by Miss Edna Stevens and Herbert Stevene. Miss Fannie Lux sang two soloa charm ingly. -'Summer Fancies," a vocal duet by Misses Williamson and Put teraon was vary pleasing Miss Edna Stevens closed the musical pro- grim by singing sweetly the familiar gong "Goodbye Summer." Miss Blanche Stuart read JameB WhU, comb-RUey'e famous poem --When the Frost is on 'the Punkln" and was heartily applauded. Tableaux representing the four ueasons formed a most pleasing feature of ^the entertainment. They were scenes of youth and beauty. ."Spring"' was appropriately represented by seven pretty children grouped around a' May pole. ' Summer." was impersonated by five youig ladies, presenting a classic scene of rare loveliness. The "Husking Bee" was the quaint and pleasing Autumn scene while Winter was revealed by a lady drawing a child on a sled through the mow with the flakes falling around. Tne refreshment tables, four in number, were also decorated to represent tbe seasons, and tbe young ladv attendants served an excellent colla. lion The attendance was large and the jouog ladle* wtao gave tbe entertainment netted a good gum for the *ror thy cause In .Sj-Jycb they labor.
