Delphi Jourm-,1: Every ti»e I see A. B. Crampton I think of a trick he played on the porter of a Pullman car on the Baltimore & Ohio railroad a year or so ago. Crampton is the greatest practical joker in the Wabash valley, and he rarely gets picked up. And I'll say right here, too, that he is one of the most companionable fellows on earth. His resources for fun are absolutely limitless, and when I am with him I never know what to expect. But to my story: Crarapton and Captain Lew Gros •were on their way to Washington to put in a word in favor of the bill to repeal the limitation of arrears of pensions clause and when their train reached Harper's Ferry the conductor announced that the train would stop thirty minutes and nny who so desired might visit the scone of John Brown's exploits. Of course a number of the passengers took advantage of this opportunity, Crampton and Gross among the number, and escorted by the porter of one of the Pullman cars, they went over the ground. Crampton held himself in check until the party reached the old fort where Brown and his little party made their last stand. At this point the colored porter waxed eloquent. He told of the desperate fighting, of the wounded and dead and was painting the scene at the fort in the heat of battle, when all at once Crampton throw the index finger of his long right arm at the dusky guide, and in a deep, bass tone said: ••You are a liar. Not a word of what you are saying is literally true. You are a fraud and an imposter." The colored man was dazed and could not speak and the little crowd trembled with excitement. After a period of suspense, the colored guide recovered his speech and broke in on the dramatic situation with a trembling voice and inquired, addressing Crampton: "Who are you?' 1 Crampton stretched himself out to his full length, took off his hat and pushing his long fingers through his' black locks, replied with dignity, solemnity, and great power: "I am John Brown's youngest son and w.as wounded while participating in this very fight." The party was awed while the colored porter stood transfixed to the spot. He gazed at Crampton's swarthy complexion and his general make-up and as soon as he could recover the use of his legs struck out for the train. Of course Crampton was at once the center of attraction and h« at once took charge of the party and related his own experience while fighting by ihe side of his immortal parent. He was the sole, object of interest on the train between Harper's Ferry and Washington, and related incidents of the fight at Harper's Ferry that fai rly chilled the blood of his aduitors. When the train arrived at Washington a half dozen newspaper reporters were at the train to meet him and interview him. Of course he took the newspaper men off to one side and let them into the joke, but the people on the train believe to this day that Crampton was none other than the son of the good old man whose soul goes marching on. One of the amusing feature of the thing was that an old fellow on the train who had once seen John Brown, grasped Crampton's hands with tears streaming down his cheeks, said: "God bless you, you are the picture of your father." No man but Crampton could have succesbf uly played such a trick. How's Tills! We offer One Hundred Dollars Reward for any ca.se of Catarrh that cannot be mred by taking Hall's Catarrh Cure. F. J.

A WORK WSTJMSSE1X Xhc Americanized Encyclopedia In the (test Edition Ever Tinned, It is a fact that it is now more than fifteen years since the first volume of the ninl.hand last edition of the "Encyclopedia BrLtannica" was issued. This original edition is intended for use by Englishmen in England. The "Americanized Encyclopedia Britinnica" is the same work revised and amended for use by Americans in America.' It is compiled "up to date," and is for sale only by the Journal or its authorized representative. Call at the office and examine the work, or drop us a postal card and our representative will call on you with sample copies. Read the following testimonials: LoGANsroET. Feb. 19, 1891. I have examined the plan and scope of the "Americanized Encyclopedia Britaunica.'' It has the following advantages over the original: 1. It brings knowledge down to a later date from two to fifteen years. 2. It includes the biography of living persons. 3. Although it condenses and curtails some of the English articles, its articles upon American subjects are fuller, more perfect and complete. 4. Very fine and correct maps of the States are given. 5. Except on subjects touching special professions, the work is a decided improvement for the general reader. 6. The cost is only about one-fourth of the original. HORACE P. BIDDLE. LoGANsronT, Ind. Feb. 20, 1S01-. liiave examined with much care the •'Americanized Encyclopedia Briti- annica" issued by Belford, Clarke & Co., of Chicago, in ten volumes. To the average man this is superior to the original edition in twenty-four volumes. It retains all the substance and omits only the details of the original edition. Having occasion to investigate the subject of Mexico I found all the substantial facts I needed in a half dozen pages. Not the least of its merits are the maps, all of which have the last rail roads and the new discoveries, notably those of Africa. In cheapness in price, convenience of reference and fullness and accuracy of facts, the Encyclopedia is just the thing a busy man needs, either for personal or family use. \ D. P. BALDWIN.

I have examined the "Americanized Encyclopedia Britinnica," and cordially recommend it as a valuable addition to any home library. The work is complete, condensed, concise, and is "up to date." and at once meets the wants of both the student and the businessman. It is cheap and within the reach of most American homes and is precisely the reference -work needed, as nearly all that which was so tediously exhaustive in the Encyclopedia Britannica on subjects of Englisb geography and history, is condensed to make room for American history and biographies. E. B. LOGAXSPORT, Feb. 23, 1891 I have examined a volume of the '•Americanized Encyclopedia Britannica," and consider it a valuable work for reference. Something of this kind should be in the library of every student. H. A. SEAEIGHT, Sup't, Cass County Schools. A Wonder Worker. Mr. Frank Huffman, a young man of Burlington, Ohio, states that he had been under the care of two prominent physicians, and used their treatment until be was not able to get around. They pronounced his case to be consumption and incurable. He was persuaded to try Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption, coughs and colds and at that time was not able to walk across the street without resting. He found, before he had used half of a bottle, that he was much better; he continued to use it and is to-day enjoying good'health. If you have any i.hroat, lung or chest trouble try it.

Rensselaer Republican: That phenomenally tough citizen, physically speaking, Ben Smoot, is in town this week, and apparently is none the worse for the- fusilade of 32 calibre bullets rained into him a few weeks ago, nor for the tattoo played on his occiput by the revolver handle, after he would not hold any more bullets. Ben is a phenomenon, for a verity, either of endurance or good luck. A year or two ago he was stepped on by two trailroads at once at Fair Oaks, and left a physical wreck forever, (see expert/medical testimony against the railroads) and only two or three' months ago he first ran a sharp and rusty nail through his hand, from which any other man would have had the lock-jaw; then a little later, a sharp hatchet fell from a second or third story scaffolding and lighled edge down, square on Ben's head, with the result that his skull was split open and Ben picked up for dead; and lastly Jive or six big bullets were fired into him at vital spots, at so close range that every charge of powder burned his skin, and still Ben comes up smiling and apparently in a good shape to undergo the whole experience over again, without serious inconvenience. (yef <fAere Ji/st the szLme, AND 50 DOES Old XiirMery favorites. There was Tom, the Son of the Piper, Jack Sprat, anl Merry King Cole, And the Three Wise Men of Gotham, Who went to sea in a bowl; The woman who rode on a broomstick, And swept the cob webbed sky. And the boy who sat in the corner, Eating his Christmas pie. These were some of the old favorites, but they have been supplanted by the "Pansy" and "Chatterbox" stories, "Little Lord Fauntleroy," and "Five Little Peppers." The old-fashioned pills and physics have been superseded, and wisely, too, by Pierce's Purgative Pellets, a mild, harmless and effective cathartic. They are pleasant to take—so gentle in their action that the most delicate child can take them, yet so effective that they will cure the most obstinate ca^'e of coustipation, stomach, liver and bowel troubles.

Coupled with the sudden death of Caivin Rochelle, of Terre Haute, it i* told that three months ago he related a dream which had impressed itself upon him; in effect, that be called upon St. Peter for admission, to Heaven, but was told that Heaven was full, and there was no room for buch as he. Then he went to thi, shades of Hades and applied to the King of Evil, but the watchman told him that the realm.- of Satan were full, but if he would return in three months he would be admitted. Three months later to a day Bochelle dropped dead. The deceased was a cad,et at West Point in the '70's, but became involved in trouble with a. oadet from South Carolina, and was court-rnartialed and dismissed. He was an exceptionally bright fellow, but upon returning home he continued to dissipa.te until he fell dead while chatting with a friend. Tine Nntrltloun Bannn'. A scientific exchange says: "It has been found by scientists that the banana is the most productive of all the fruits of the earth. Its productive power is estimated to be forty-four times that of the potato and 131 times that of wheat. A single short and rather slender staik will bear at its crest a great load of fruit, apparently out of all proportion to its support. The banana was first known in .the East Indies, where according to writings of Tbeophrastus, it was the especial food of the wise men, and was supposed to possess the valuable property of nourishing and strengthening the mind and judgment. Because of this belief the banana was given the specific name of sapientum. Its use is-increasing at an enormous rate, and its cultivation in many tropical countries is now carried on with great profit and success.
