INDIANAPOLIS. iND. NOTWITHSTANDING the persistent efforts of bUi counsel, Biiey Ellis will have to go to the prison north, sentence having been imposed ou Friday by Jud£0 McConnell. The people of Cass couniy should be well saiiatied with tho way justice has been 'dealt to criminals during tbe present term of court. No lesa than eight per&one have been sent from this county to the penitentiary during the past few weeks. In fact, not one ot those accused of felony has escaped. Wordon and Ellis have been punished for their dastardly attempt to murder an inoffensive young man. The three desperadoes who held up druggist Erwin have begun a flve years sojourn at Michigan City. The two Kennedy brothers convicted of burglary and "Sloppy" Connors,the confessed forger, have all. been put to work for the State. It la a pood riddance of worthless and criminal men and shows that crime cannot go un. punished ID this county. The prosecutor, Mr. Hale, and his assistant Mr. Walters, are to bo highly commended for their successful work during the short period that they have been In office The Bicycle Season, A YOUNG woman won the annua 1 State inter-collegiate oratorical contest at Indianapolis Friday night. After having received first rank in oratory at Earlham College, Miss Nellie E. Wood succeeded In winning the contest of Friday night in which the best orators of all the leading educational Institutions of the Stale participated. The judges of delivery, W. P. Ftshbick, John L. Griffiths and C. W. Fairbanks graded Miss Wood first and tho judges of composition had also given her first grade. Miss Wood's subject wae "The Nation's Perpetuity," The representative of Indiana University, Preston E Kagleson, a young colored man was graded fourth. The other Institutions represented were Butler, Hanover, Franklin, Wabash and De Pauw. THE French'are worried over the fact that the German army is larger than that of France. M. Roche complained in the Chamber of Deputies last week that since 1887. the military expenditures of Germany had exceeded those of France. He said that 542, 000 men ought to bo serving In the French army; but, as a fact, only 404,000 were serving. He then demanded that the French army should be as well organized as tbe German army, claiming that the economizing of a fe'* million francs might mean defeat in the event of war. His remarks were received with applause. Mr. Cavalgnao, Minister of War, reproached M. Roche for exageratlng the gravity of the situation, m&iataln- Ing that the French army only num. bered about 50,000 men less than the German army. Is now'ut hnnd.

The danger of travel by land and inland waters is continually brought to notice. On Ihe Ohio river at Cincinnati Friday occurred an accident tbat caused the loss of several lives. The steamer Longfellow crashed Into a pier of a railroad bridge and went down in a few minutes. The fog was so heavy that the pier could not be seen until the steamer was upon it. The only way to prevent such accidents would appear to be the replacing bridges with piers by suspension brldges.

By some curious counting, U U said to be the biggest town in America, while in reality it is small to a degree. All you need do is to pick up the morning papura and read the nonsense written about the Gould wedding. New Yorkers think it is very funny to see in at: out of- town paper the announcement: "Miss Birdie Morse of Kalamazoo is visiting her cousin, Rose Smith. Miss Birdie, we hope you will have a goocl time." But this is refined and desirable beside the descriptions lavished, upon the family of a dead and gone moneymaker, whose methods were held to acorn by all honest men. We are carefully told about the rooms which these French visitors will occupy:: a big newspaper descrioea tbe paternal and filial feeling existing among them all, while five different papers have a picture of the wedding dress, and each differs. Why can't we be big enough to LET 1'EKSONALITIES ALONE? Of course we are a young country, a young oouatry eaten up by the vice of curiosity, and a country that until It recovers from this disease, will be laughed at by the whole world. We are carefully told how the lover of proud degree and corresponding blue blood expresses his love to the so- called fair one, who, by.the-b.ye, is a very ordinary looking girl with the peculiar Gould look which they all have, and which suggests their father's "cuteness" in selling the rat trap. Now, they can laugh. Their father's invention was only calculated to catch the household horror, but his sons and daughters have baited another lt,fnd of trap, ba j ed It with gold dollars and caught New York society, Now York newspapers, and they can afford to laugh. I remember before Jay Gould brought sadness and poverty_to_bi8 frien"d"Cyru9 Field, hearing a woman who had been on his yacht, speak of him as "Little Mr. Gould who, after all, really meant £o be kind to everybody and was quite a reader." "Little Mr. Gould," alae! toppled over the giants of the Field family, but who can ever think of those gold dollars, which are in reality Gould dollars, as desirable? Inasmuch a.s they represent cuteness rather than shrewdness; dishonesty not honor, and false friendship rather than truth. If we as - a nation, had the English and: German respect for honesty, tho Gould trap to catch society would have to be baited with something better than dollars, and indeed could not have been utilized until the yearw had brought forgetfulnesa of how the money was earned. The newspaper accounts of the wedding, of the trousseau, of the flowers and the jewels, the frills and the frlveles' stand in black and jwhite to accuse us of another vulgarity—the vulgarity of waste. It is another evidence of our youth, but it rlsei up and confronts us, and we dare not deny its existence. THE DUKK OF WESTMINSTER'S DAUGHTER. The other day the daughter of one of tbe richest men in tbe world, a man who could buy out the Vanderbilts and the Goulds and the Standard Oil magnates, and still be a wealthy man—the Duke of Westminister—was married to a young prince whose fortune was largely in his kind heart and hit! blue blood, and he gave her a beautiful little brooch set with diamonds and rubies for her wedding present. This girl who counted among 1 her belongings gems inherited from her mother and given to her on her wedding day by her father, wore, on the eventful day, the brooch that came to her from her bridegroom and a simple string of pearls given her when she was a girl. Her people had sense enough to itcow thatsbe had the beauty of youth; which needs no jewels to emphasize it; and th>.t there was such a thing as sentiment, and that It, 'when a girl's heart was right, appealed to rich and poor alike. We have undoubtedly the most beautiful girls in the world in thii country; beautiful with the delicacy of a Dresden statuette, or a fine orchid, and instead of gowning them simply and saving brocades and elaborate pieces of jewels for their matroabood. we give theaa carte blache to wear what they please, and the consequence is that with the first wrinkle, they can assume nothing new to draw attention from It. What the rich girl does, the girl In the middle class does. The rich American girl throws aside the gown of which she is wearied and doesn't care what becomes of It The English, German o' French girl, in the same potition, would have her maid take it apart and put away for future use those decorations which were in order, and decide then wraether the material should bo used for pillows, coeeyfi, gowns for a smaller girl, or whatever the fabric was beet fitted for. Wrongly emough we call that stinginess, whereas it If simply proper caro. American women hacdle more money, spend it more lavishly, and account (or less of It than any other women. AN ENGLISH MAIDEN'S COMMON SENiE. A Now York girl has had an English friend staying with her this winter, and Ibis girl has made ber open her eyes very wide. In the morning, while the American girl is lounging and yawning, her English friend is, as she says, "totting up my accounts and writing in my diary." The New JTorker said to her, "Why do you bother with a diarj?" And the Ecglleh girl answered, "Because, when I go home I want to be able to tell about all I have seen and enjoyed to my mother and sisters, and it will be a help to me In recalling things, and then, too, think what a pleasure it will be to me in the future " The American girl can't understand thai, while she has a smattering of everything, that what the English girl knows she knows well. She is slow, but lacking versatility ehe has concentration; having studied botany she is interested in all the strange blossoms and is making a herbarium. If she has a fancy for geology she is collecting pebbles; but it is always certain aud sure that she has some special object, and that this Is going to be of Interest to her, when she is an elderly woman, of interest to other people. HOW SHE BOUGHT CONFECTIONS. She started out for a walk the other day, and tbe New Yorker took her Into a fashionable candy shop. Each bought in her own way. Tbe American girl fanaied buttercups, and took a pound of them. Sbe wanted chocolates and had a pound of them, and then a pound of tnarshmallows. The English girl looked carefully, and requested an ounce of another, until ehe had half a pound, and the shopgirl opened her eyes very widely and credited her with stlnglngness. This was not true; but she knew she couldn't possibly eat three pounds of candy, she thought it wrong to spend her money so foolishly, and she knew tbat, getting a great quantity of sweets, they would crow stale. When they got home the Engllsh'jglrl rang and asked for a fancy plate; then from her pack age she brought the dellcte lace paper mat she had bought, arranged her sweets prettily on tbat only a girl can do to whom comes the duty of overseeing the dessert home. The platter was put on the tea table, tempted everybody by its dainty arrangement, and each tea drinker .took one or two of the sweete. Now, which was the wiser woman? REMEMBERING HEE HOSTJESS. The American girl wants to show her appreciation of tbe English girl's kindness. She spends $10 on a tiny box of orchids. They are beautiful to look upon, and they last three days The English girl spends |5 on the materials for a tea-cloth, devotes her leisure hours for a couple of weeks to enbroiderfng it, then gives it to her hostess, who has not only a lovely bit of work, which she could not buy for less than $50 but feels that with every stitch set in It, there has been a kind thought of her and her pleasure. Which present'was th» most sensible? The French girl stares with surprise at the New Yorker when, with tbe vulgarity of waste, she declines to wear cleaned gloves; and, yet, when the French girl goes home, she sends to her friend at Christmas, av Easter, and on her birthday, which she has carefully written down in her note book, some pretty souvenir, and the New Tomer, the type of the American girl, groans because she has been so extravagant, a'nd can uot return the pretty courtesies. Aod yet, if one wishes to be generous, one must De c&reful. Nobodv despises stinginess more than I do; but Idon't think it is represented by care as to one's belongings. (i Grand Removal Sale.

NEW YORK. 5 ©I WASTE IK THE HOVE. The other day I saw a woman, evidently a servant kept in an apartment, throw into Ihe ash barrel two loaveo of bread that had never been cut. and at least twelve slices that had. Now, a Continental housekeeper, even if she were a duchess, would never have permitted this. In a properly managed household, toast is a constant necessity, and any man or woma» knows that there ie no dessert tbat is any better than a well made bread pudding, which requires a stale loaf. When I say "bread pudding," I don't mean that mixture commonly called by this name, and which looks like a bread poultice and tastes like jfluo, but I mean the beautiful looking: pudding which, ^underneath its crust, Is creamy in consistency, and well flavored; and has on top, thin slices of buttered bread that in the baking have browned, and which have upon them, very closely studded, brandied cherries. As it was near my own home I had sufficient curiosity to find outj who live where such waste was permitted. I discovered that it was a young broker, whose wife is counted quite a beauty, who dresses elabor- atejy and requires for herself and her huaband, in this bit of an apartment, the services of two women. It is her boast that she keeps a cook by allow, ing her to do as she pleaees. She would be horrified if she were called vulgar, and yet this la exactly the adjective to apply to her. Her hus« band's Income and her own position demand that she should know where waste exists, and she is stamping her. self with the creet of vulgarity by not looking after tbe ways of her household. LITTLE THINGS TELL. We wonder, we who are the most wasteful nation in tbe world, how it is tbat the French and German shopkeepers become owners of the large markets and tbe fashionable restaurants of the city. I will tell you why It is. They consider the day of little things. Not long ago I asked in »c American bake shop tbat three o' a certain kind of rolls be gent me. I was told tbat unless I ordered twelve U would be impossible. It was not a question of cost, but I didn't want them. Leaving the place. I went to one kept by a German. He was civil, perfectly willing to send me the small quantity that I asked for, thanked me very politely for the nine cents I handed him, and said tbat he would be glad at any time to take an order no matter bow small. His civility and courtesy' made me a permanent customer. Here's another example. At the French confectioner'* where I deal, they make a rich, aweet which has a brandied cherry for its heart. After a dinner, one could not possibly eai more than two of these. The other day I said: "Madame, if you have any I'll lake four cherries, but of course,- unless they are made I shouldn't think of putting you to the trouble for this quantity." There were none made at the time; h ut I wae told not to think about that, .that it gave them . THE GREATEST PLEASURE TO DO IT forme, and when they arrived, care- had been lakon that each one should be of a different color, so tbat they would look prettiest on their tiny silver platter. Do you think any American confectioner would do thisr* Certainly not. They would count the trouble as great, and would fail to see how, iu being courteous and going to< some trouble for a small order, that there existed tbe certainty of keeping 1 a customer or of having her recom» mendation. The French laundresses will mend the belongings of bicbelors without extra charge. Tho German Delicatessen will sell tho wing of a. chicken and two email elicos ot ham, giving much thought to the carving, when the American dealer would be inclined to lauph at the order. We will be the most prosperous nation in the world when wo realize tbe value of pennies, and become certain that generosity and prodigality are not synonymous. WD.L WE EVER LEARN'? As a nation are we going to take the trouble to be generous In a sen«. sible way? When we act as <?o the people of the older nations, we will have their solidity and their certainty. As it is, we are like little boats on tho sea of trouble. In our eagerness to have tbe boat decorat^\^ to make it look pretty, and to receive^ words of commendation as to It* daintiness, we forget to test its ability in a storm. A willful waste Is certain to make a woeful want tbat is predicted, and want will come and be felt by all those who do not comprehend the vulgarity of waite and the refine* ment of care. It '• largely our women who are to blame, and yet, If the. American man would assert himself, and would Insist upon tenoning worca* the value of all things, she would not err as she does. Every right tblnklnf woman believes ibat a man should b* the master in bis household; therefore let him ute his power, and use It properly; that is, use it so tbat hi* womankind will be careful, thoughtful and generous women instead of shiftless, wasteful and careless butterflies. Think it all over, and giving It the proper thought, I do bomstly believe that you will agree as to what' constitutes the right generosity with BAB. DtBih ofauOld Re*i<1ent.
