JLIfe In a Big City, The other night a young man from Delphi entered the Murdock hotel and asked for a room. Bert Buuder, with his characteristic suavity pushed the register over to the expectant guest and asked him to register. The young man laboriously affixed his autograph ana "Delphi, Ind.,"to the page, and- followed the same with the number "23." Bert, considerably surprised at the mysterious figures asked what they were foi-. ''That is my age," said the young man with a self-satisfisd air. The clerk in all his experience had never before encountered such a guest, and it required a strong effort to control his amusement. When the young Delphian reached his room he exhibited much interest in the manner in which the electric light was turned on. On acknowledging his inability to comprehend the thing the porter obligingly inducted him into the mystery of ( the little thumb piece, but even then he was in doubt as to whether he could master the thing when alone, and turning to the porter said, "That's too much for me. You turn the light out and I will go to bed in the dark." And he did. Dodge the large One*. One of Indiana's bravest soldiers was General Sol Meredith, of Cambridge City, Wayne county, and many amusing anecdotes are told of him. He was Colonel of the Nineteenth Indiana at the Lewinsville skirmish, and noticing 1 that his men dodged every time a shell exploded over them as he rode along the line, he exhorted them to hold up their heads and act like men. Suddenly "an eighteen- pound shell burst within a few feet of him and he involuntarily ducked his head almost to the saddle while his horse squatted with fear. "Boys," he exclaimed as he raised up. "you may dodge the larger ones." A cheer and a laugh went over the entire line. Electric Bitters This remedy is becoming so well known and so popular as to need no special mention.

Of the thrilling Irish comedy-drama 'Inshavoge" to be presented by a capable company at Dolan's to-morrow night, the Brooklyn. N. Y., Eagle says: W. J. Floi-ence's romantic Irish comedy-drama, "Inshavogue," was presented last, evening before a crowded house. Imagination cannot conceive the magnificence of the production, New scenery of wealth and impressive grandeur, mechanical effects of astonishing ingenuity, elegant costumes, delightful singing, artistic dancing:, original music, all blended perfectly together, making a grand performance of an entirely interesting play. The company is a good one throughout. Miss Lottie VVinnett as a true Irish girl being worthy of special mention. LOUIS JAMES. Louis James is now the acknowledged "Othello" of the American stage and his appearance next Monday evening in this great role should call out one of the largest and most fashionable audiences of the season. An exchange says of "Othello," "Mr. Louis James thrilled his auditors at the Windsor theater last evening, by the intensity of passion displayed in his conception of "Othello." His bursts of jealousy possessed an absolute fiendishness which awed while they provoked admiration. His support was superb, Mr. F. C. Mosley doing excellent work as lago," and fairly sharing the honors of the evening with the star. Miss Weetns was a charming Desdemona, depicting the love and despair of the unhapyy heroine with a graceful simplicity which won all hearts." The N. Y. Post says: "Inshavogue" is one of the best plays of the present day, and teems with genuine fun and catchy songs. Among the scenic fea- tnres .introduced, special mention should be made of the cascade of real running water, and an Irish Glen and Blarney Castle by moonlight. Why Mrs Pcttit wns Sacrificed. The following is another newspaper piece concerning Pettit and is credited to George Small, one of the jurors in the Pettit trial. Mr. Small is credited assaying: "Since I served as a juror in the Pettit case I have had to answer innumerable inquiries. A great many ask: 'If you found him guilty why didn't you hang him?' The question is not without reason, as the murder was long premeditated, cold blooded and unprovoked. But for all that I think the verdict was just right. Hanging a man is not always best. It is a fate reserved only for ignorant and vicious criminals. Pettit is not that kind. He would not kill you or me or any other man as most murderers would do. I do notbelivehe would rob a man or wrong any person. He is highly intelligent and can do his country a great deal of good, even where he is, His temperament is a peceliar one. The chief aim of his life was to reach the highest place in the church, and besides he was greatly infatuated with Mrs. Whitehead. His wife was hindering his promotion in the church, he thought, and was standing between him and the object of his infatuation, Mrs. Whitehead, whose money could so materially advance him. Now, it is a law of psychology that any man will fight against that which- prevents his reaching his chief aim, or baffles his passion. His wife, unfortunately did both, and was sacrificed." The Long Liont Henry. Now comes the story that a palace car conductor named Barr on the Northern Pacific who formerly had a large acquaintance here, saw and recognized Henry Winklebleck, o f forgery fame, at Portland, Oregon, a few weeks ago. As the story goes Barr approached Winklebleck who was working on the docks, and calling him by name received a cold bluff, the man denying that he was the same Winklebleck. Barr began further investigations a few days later but found that his man bad disappeared and was said to have escaped to the mountains, Those who know "Winkie" best are strong in the belief that he is in Mexico. Ask Your Friends Who have taken Hood's Sarsaparilla what they think of it, and the replies will be.positive in its favor. One has been cured of indigestion and dyspep- »ia, and another, finds it indispensable for sick headache, others report remarkable cures of scrofula, salt rheum, etc. Truly, the best advertising which Hood's Sarsaparilla receives is the hearty endorsement of its array of friends. 6 Notice.

A special from Louisville gives an interesting- exposure of affairs in that Democratic city. It says: The official count of the city pumps were completed to-day, and showed 644 public pumps within the city limits. Pump-contractor Harlan for eight years past has been receiving pay at the rate of $7.80 -per annum for 1,118 pumps, thus drawing over §4,500 each year for which there was-not the shadow of a claim. The pump-claim has always been based upon a report of City Engineer Scowden, made ten years ago, and which gave the number of pumps at 1,118. In this period manj of the pumps have been discontinued and the wells walled up. Contractor Harlan, of course, gave them no further attention, but he continued to draw pay for the whole number with cheerful regularity. Scattered over the immense area of a, scattered city like Louisville it was a difficult matter to count the pumps, and rather than be bothered wi'.h it each city administration has paid Harlan's ' claim without question- Soon after Mayor Lyler entered office last December he ordered a count made by the police. This resulted in giving tfee total number about the same as the count completed to-day. The result was startling, and contractor Harlan demanded a recount, in which he should have a representative. This was granted and for four days past the commission, led by Harlan, has been engaged in a, frantic but fruitless effort to find the 450 missing pumps. Alleys were explored, vacant lots searched and even ^excavations made in the search, but in vain, and to-da.y the contractor gave up. He claims that he did not know of the fraud, as he only accepted the city engineer's figures. The city will at once- -bring suit against Harlan for the excess of pay amounting to about $40,000.
