[Entered as second-cton matter at the Logani- portroet Office, February 8, 1888.1 THTJRSDAY~MOKS1NG MARCH 14 JUSTICE BREWER recently delivered a lecture at Washington On "Women in Court. ' He urged, in a plain, genuine way, that woman was entitled to ft legal status corresponding to that of a man, "No oae can bo insensible," said he, '•to tho /act that as respecting the sex there is silently but Burely going on a vast social change. Tbe place she IB to fill in years to come la one very different from that which she has hitherto occupied. We often hear the assertion that it is the glory of Christianity to have elevated woman; to, have opened before her many a hitherto closed door, and to have given her earthly life a dignity because it has given it a higher value and a larger usefulness. One thing that better illustrates ibis change is the modification in the laws respentlng her, for the laws of a nation are tho evidences of the thought of tho nation and the progress it is making in civilization and the culture." Tbe old common law of this country and England in reference to the rights of women was compared with the present; the husDands of a century ago K-ero compared with tho huabacds of today, to show what tremendous gains had been made for women In life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. ••The more closely," said Mr. Brower, "the two lives run into each other, the more of mutuality In education, In counsel and in business, the better for tho two. Hand In hand they went out of Eden, and hand in hand they must traverse the earth to tho paradise of, the future." DURING tne iasi quarter of a century there has been an enormous in. crease in the business of publishing newspapers and periodicals in this country. Statistics show that in 1870 there wore 5,871 publications'; now there are 20,000, "varying from daily to quarterly." Of this total 1,855 are dallies, and M,077 weeklies. In 1890 tho 'aggregate capital represented by those publications was about $105,000,'000; to produce them, 101,095 persons were employed; the wages paid amounted to $70,000,000 per annum, while tho material used cost $10,000,000. THERE is reoorted to be considerable opposition In Germany to the prospective celebration of Prince Bismarck's birthday. Those leaders on the relohstag who have much more liberal views than Biem .rck do not look upon the proposed demonstrations with favor. The German parliament, however, will adjourn for the day on April 1 to allow the members to pay their respects to Prince Bismarck. PBNSSYI.VANIA. is evidently prepar- log to again play the favorite son act in the Republican National Convention. A poll of the legislature of that State on the Presidential question showed Governor Hastings to be the first choice, he receiving many more votes than McKlnley, Harrison or Reed. Besides Hastings, ;Pennsvl- vanlans who received votes were Senators Quay and Cameron and Hamilton Dlsston, of Philadelphia. IN the Illinois Senate the bill granting women the right to vote for certain township officers was defeated by one vote. The same legislative body has killed the bill against the wearing of high hats in theatres. The Pennsylvania House of Representatives has passed the bill prohibiting ibe wearing of any religious garb or insigcia by teachers in the public schools. DEAN HOLE, who recently departed for England after a four months tour of this country said that the worst things he noted in this coon- try were corrupt politics, sensational newspapers and crowding more people,into public .conveyances than •eats are provided for. ',. r ; The BimlnenN Men are Entertained by Telephone— Grund Opening »f Long I>lMtanco Jjine*4-The JLadieM' Senalon. The Logansport business men called at ihe rooms of the Pottawatomie Club yesterday afternoon between the hours of 2 and 5. and smoked Manager J B. Skinner's cigars and accepted hie open hospitality. A very eatisUctory and pleasing teat was made of the new long distance telephone. There were over two hundred visitors during the afternoon. J. B. Skinner, the genial and popular manager, alike of the long distance exchange, owned by the Amercan telephone and telegraph company, and of tho Central Union, owned by the Bell company, was assisted in caring for the business men by G. C. Brooks of Chicago, a representative of the American, N. G. Wartb, assistant su- perlntendentof the Cen'ral Union Telephone Co., and H. VV. Deeds, e'la-e Inspector for the same company, both the latter gentlemen being froai Indianapolis. There were forty-one receivers and one transmitter for the me of the Invited guests yesteriay, and the seats were filled almost constantly during the reception. Mayor MeKee conversed with one of the officers of the long distance company, at New York city, and also talked with ease to a gentleman at Chicago. Highest of all in Leavening Tower.—Latest U. S.

And the sergeant did bounce it through. "Gentlemen of the jury,' 1 he said, at the close of a most eloquent speech, "you've heard tho evidence for tho plaintiff; and, gentlemen of the jury, you have admired the most bewitching- lady, tho plaintiff herself. Gentlemen, do you believe that this enchanting 1 , this fascinating-, this captivating-, this accomplished lady would, for one mo- incut, favor the advances or listen, with anything 1 save scorn and indignation, to the amorous protestations of the wretched and repulsive homuncuHis, the deformed and degraded defendant?" His client looked up from the wall of the court and plteous'ly murmured: "SerRt. Wilkins! Oh, Serjt. Wilkins!" "Silence, sir!" replied the sergeant, in a wrathful undertone. "Gentlemen," he continued, bringing- his fist heavily down on tho desk before him, "do you think that this lovely lady, this fair and sailing creature, would ever have permitted an offer of marriage to be made to her by this miserable atom of humanity, this stunted creature, who would have to stand on a sheet of note paper to look over twopence?"

IF YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE GARDEN. It will pay you to be particular as to whose seeds you buy. We are now in the market with a full line of Lundreth's seeds for th& season of 1895, and I wish to say to the gardeners and others usins seeds, that while Laudreth's seeds may be a little higher price then some others they tire always fresh, clean and true to name, and as we hncdle no other seeds except those grown by Landreth & Sons of Philadelphia our customers may rely on petting- nothing but the very best. I believe that the ' cost of the seeds is nothing compared to the crop, and when a person has the trouble to put out a garden, he should use nothing but the very best, We handled Landreth's seeds for four years and have never heard a single complaint; in fact, our customers unhesitatingly pronounce them perfect- in ever particular, and as an evidence of this fact, we have almost the entire trade of all the gardeners around Log-ansport as well as many from a distance. Oar trade has increased on this particular line of poods more than tenfold since we have been in the business? We also have a full line of garden tools a.ud field seeds Remember that the Grin of Landreth & Sons has been 115 years in the occupation of seed growing. George Harrison. 617, 623 Broadway.

A little known example of inventive penius in woman is that afforded by Barbara Uttman, -of Saxony, and her point lace so long- in fashionable use aU over the world. She invented the process and apparatus for manufacturing this beautiful handiwork, which has since given employment to millions oi operators, and which, in its line, nad never been excelled. The apparatus looks like a lon ff pincushion bristling with pins arranged to outline the pattern or design. The operator manages from ten to fifty peculiar spools, allowing: the thread to feed over tne pins alternately, until the design is completed. The spools, or bobbins, are purposely of different colors, so as to be easily distinguishable. The process is slow and difficult to -learn. Miss Cttman founded schools where thousand; learned it. Since her time, when inventive ability was rare, even among men, her ideas have been incorporated __._ in the construction of machinery by , eral monl ha. which the lace is -produced at wonderfully lower rates, and yet Barbara Utt- .man's lace still surpasses all. A young- printer in Paris committed suicide recently in a most strange manner. He dressed himself as a pretty woman, in ..ball costume, pink tulle gown, a wreath of flowers to match, ftnd rose satin shoes; after lighting a pan of charcoal he lay down on his bed, and when discovered" was found to be dead: The articles of female attire be- Tbo CuHtmllan Hill Still MIxMinc— Private Secretary K!UK'« Condition.

He iniule out commissions appointing William X. Lyons. Ernst W. Tiukard nnd James F. Darnell directors of the prison south, and Man ford Youtz, Henry A. Root and H. A.

The secretary of state refused to issue the commissions and a suit will follow. Indianapolis News: The celebrated custodian bill is still missing-, but it will he printed in the volume of acts of the General Assembly, issued by the Secretary of State. The impression about tho State House is that the bill was stolen by some one during the fight in the House. The first atory was that it had been torn in pieces near the Speaker's desk, but a search in the debris about the corner of the room in which the fight occurred did not result in the finding of any portions of the bill. Secretary Ktog thought - Representative Adame, of Parke, got the bill, but Mr. Adams says he at no time bad the bill in bis hand; neither did he attempt to take it from the Governor's secretary. The Secretary of State's office' gave out the following statement concern- Ing the bill today: 11 This office can not refuse to publish the laws. The constitution provides three ways by which bills may become laws after passage; one by the Governor's signature, another by passage over his veto, and the third by limitation. H says: -If any bill shall not he returned by the Governor within three days, Sunday excepted, after it shall be presented to him, it shall be a law without his signature.' The records of the Senate and House enow this bill to be a law by limitation, and whatever might be our wish or the intention ol the Governor, the bill Is now a law. and must be published and stand until the courts go back of the House and Senate journals, if they have that right. This it the constitution for it, and that is what we are upholding." There is DO emergency clause to the Nicholson bill, and it will become a law only upon the proclamation of the Governor that the new laws have been duly distributed. This will be sev- Licenses in force will continue ai granted, but the adjustment of rooms (next to streets) and all the details of the bill relating to the enforcement of the liquor laws will be operative (when the law is declared in force) against present saloonkeepers. Myron D. King, the Governor's private secretary,, who was Injured in the Representatives Monday night, is no better today. He had a fair night's rest, but early this- morning bad a fainting spell. Dr. Carey was hurriedly summoned. He> applied restoratives and expressed the* opinion teat tho fdint resulted from the effects of the medicines that had been administered.
