Yesterday afternoon William Foster, a young farmer from Clinton, 111., and William Lance, of Kentland, arrived in the city, and, from the story told by Foster, it appears that he had $25 in his possession when he met Lance at tbe latter's home, which he gave to the keeping of Lance at the latter's solicitation, the two having been former good friends. When they arrived In this city they repaired to a prominent saloon and had a few drinks, and Lance reauested Foster to remain in the saloon for ten minutes while he went up street to transact some business. This Foster agreed to do, but at the expiration of the ten minutes and Lance did not return it dawned on the infantile mind of Foster that he had been too confiding, and that he was out his roll. He then reported the affair at police headquarters and a search of the city by the officers failed to reveal any trace ot the smooth young man. Foster left this morning for his home, a sadder and wiser man. THE COMMISSIONERS Dec. 8 and 9 by a large Eastern Fur Manufacturer. He will deliver any Furs he has.

Coming west from Andrews on the Wabash road, the . track layers will this week reach Peru in laying the new elghty-pound-to-the-yard steel rail. Pennsylvania stock is now selling at 1114 per share, and more stock, it is stated, Is being purchased by New York capital than by the capitalists of Philadelphia, which is causing some speculation. On December 1st the Penntylvan'a railroad paid Its semi-annual dividend. The amount was 13,230,000, and it was paid by 23,000 checks, only thirty shareholders calling for their money at the treasurer's office. All divisions of the Pennsylvania lines entering this city are exceeding all former records in number of loaded cars they are handling. Their business last week exceeded that of the corresponding week of 1896, and all divisions show a handsome increase.

The county commissioners will be required to appoint, during their present session, a superintendent of the county poor farm, also a county physician for Eel township and for several other townships. Quite a number of applications have been filed for the positions, and it is thought the commissioners will find no difficulty in finding good men to fill the positions in which changes are made. The board will also be called upon to appoint a constable for Eel township at this session to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Constable Binney. Several months, ago they appointed Silas Morgan, but as he has failed to file his bondr.the board will be compelled to make an other appointment. As the position Is not a very lucrative one, it is not thought they will be overwhelmed with applications for the position. FOR THE DEFENSE.

Sixteen passenger and 146 freight and other trains were involved In the 165 accidents. At the recent meeting of the Wabash railroad surgeons at St. Louis, the question of the various systems taking care of railroad employes was discussed at great length. After a most impartial discussion the conclusion was reached that the hospital system of the Wabash was one of the best and most thorough. It has five hospitals located at Danville, Moberly, Peru, Springfield and St. Louis. Of these, the one at Peru was built first. The hospitals have the best nurses and surgeons obtain- ablt and are fitted oal with »11 mod- Officers Elected. The annual election of officers of St. John Commandery No. 24, K.
