A Bold Swindle. It is a ' seldom "occurrence that an attempt is made to steal real estate, but such an act was perpetrated O'ri Peter Saltzman, of vVashington township, Tippecanoe county, in February 1&90. Tbe fradulent. transaction, one of the most daring ever performed in that county has just come tu light. The Lafayette Courier says:- At the time named above, a man, whose name was not learned, forged a deed for eighty acres of land belonging to Peter Saltzman, had an acknowledgement taken before a Justice of Peace at Buck Creek, came to J>afayctte, and going to a well known agent for loaning money here told him that he was $1,000 short for moneyQenough to pay for the land in question. The swindler disclosed the deeds, duly signed and acknowledged and was successful in borrowing §1,000, the balance due on the land, giving a mortgage on the eighty acres of real estate to secure the payment of the amount. No thought of a fraudulent conveyance ever entered the mind of the money leaner and recently when the notes became due he began the initiatory 'steps to collect it and discovered for the first time he had been the victim of a bold swindle. Both Mr and Mrs. Saltzman deny ever signing a deed or of any contemplation of disposing of their little farm. The deed and mortgage were recorded in proper form but the man who claimed to have purchased/the land and secured the $1,000 has not been seen since he borrowed the money. The affair is being thoroughly investigated, but as the matter now appears tbe loaner of the money will always have that particular $1,000 coming to him. It was one of the slickest swindles ever perpetrated, and ere this, probably, the fellow has made himself very scarce from this vicinity with the $1,000 be thus obtained. Cruelty to Animal*. Yesterday in Squire Smith's court pound officer Will Cullen and his as sistant Frank Baker were arraigned' for cruelty to animals. After carefully weighing the evideace tbe Squire im posed a fine of $o with costs of prosecution on each of the offenders. The defendants straightway filed an appea 1 to the circuit court. . ; The cause of this action was a complaint filed by George W. Flannigan alleging that the defendants in . impounding his cow, which had strayed from the North Side over to the city, cruelly and inhumanely beat the beast and broke her tail. He further showed that at the time the pound officers were running bis cow in that his boys were in search of tbe animal and told the officers not to impound her. Such cruelty as was practiced on the beast merits vigorous condemnation and the fine imposed for the act was not too great. Mr. Flanntgan following the point gained against Cullen straightway' went before the Police Board and filed Charges against Officer Cullen, asking for his dismisssal from the force. The, charge entered by Mr. Flannigan against Cullen sets forth the fact of the latter's disgraceful assault on a. man in a Twelfth street saloon a week ; or more ago and sets the matter out in such specific terms that it is altogether probable tha>t the officer will receive his dismissal. In crossing George Flannigan Will; Cullen has caught a Tartar, and before the fi#ht is over something is expected to drop. He Wax f om Clymerg. ; Many amusing scenes are enacted a .the natural gas office, but yesterda the climax was capped, :'so to speak A-'tall, gaunt countryman, drifted.int the gas office and stepping, up to th window surveyed-the scene and notec with much apparent interest th motions of tho busy clerks before him .Finally-awakening to a realization o the errand which had moved his step, thither he smiled blandly and ap preached tbe subject thus: ••I 'low that this is .vhere you sel nat'ral gas, isn't it?" AlJenks "'lowed" that the plac was the same. The countryman "sized up'' the smiling secretary as if to assure him self that he was not going to be bunkoed, then after another careful survey of the office and a close scrutiny of Mr, Jenks and tbe clerks, reached down in the two pockets of bis long overcoat and fishing out a couple of quart bottles laid them on the countei with much dignity and said: "Well then, you just fill these here bottles up with the pesky stuff, and bow much is the damage." "You mean gasoline, don't you,' said'Al, nearly choking in his efforts to control his amusement. "No, I don't; I mean nat'ral gas,and ef you've got it trot it out and fill these 'ere bottles." "You have certainly been misinformed, sir. We cannot furnish naLural gas by the bottle. Its gaso- i line you want," said Mr.- Jenks, • realizing that he had a most peculiar customer with whom to deal. "I tell you its natr'al gas I want. The pesky stuff you get over here from Kokomo. I know what gasoline is and you can't fool me. Fill up these bottles." "Where are you from, any way?" gasped Jenks between smothering fits. "Why, I live down here by Clymers," said he of the bottles. "Well, I thought so," exclaimed Jenks turning back to his desk, "I am sorry, but we are just out, and can't fill your order to-day. Come in again." The office force by this time was convulsed with laughter, and tbe man from Clymer's somehow began to realize the situation. He smiled again, a ghastly smile, asmiledevoid of mirth, and gathering up his bottles, let them drop gently into his capacious pockets. Opening the door he slid quietly -out. Yesterday morning the following ladies departed from here to attend tbe annual meeting of the Womans Presbyterian Missionary Society of this Presbytery which will convene at South Bend to-day: Mrs! Dr. D. P. Putnam, Mrs. Chas. Horning and Mrs. VVm. McDonald from the First Presbyterian church; Mrs. E. S. Scott and Mrs. Chas. Clark from the Second church, and Mrs. Newman Sustles and Miss Armstrong from tho Concord church in, Harrison township. The meeting will be in session two days.

A Journal reporter had the pleasure of being one of the very limited "audience" admitted to the opera house last night to witness the rehearsal of the ••Chimes of Normandy/' the beautiful opera to be presented Friday, Saturday and Monday nights under the auspices and for the benefit of the free reading room. Mr. Demorest has thrown a wonderful amount of energy into the preparation of this opera and the chorus is strong and correct. The leading parts are sustained in a very creditable manner, and it is now fully assured thai the opera will be produced without a hitch. The damage case of Henry Heil against the Logansport and Pleasant Grove Turnpike company is on trial in tbe Howard circuit court. This is the second hearing of this case. The first time the jury awarded Heil $2,500 damages. A rut in the defendant's road caused a load of hay to upset, throwing the plaintiff to the ground inflicting permanent injuries^ Commendable.
