They write that when young Llene- mann was brought to the hospital, he was unconscious and suffering from & gangrenous condition of the leg, which doubtless caused his death.

A Magnificent and Generous Audience Assembled to Witness the Show. The Performance Will Not be Repeated Tonight—The Pern Date Also Declared Off. One of the largest and most appreciative audiences that ever assembled in this city to witness a home entertainment was that assembled at Dolaa's play house last night to wit ness the burnt cork entertainment given under the auspices of Logans port Lodge No.66, B P.O.Elks.givei for the benefit of the charity fund and those present were well repaid fur their presence there by ,tbe enter tatnment, which by far surpassed an previous efforts of that band of merry makers, When the curtain rang up for tu first part it revealed a handsomel dressed stage and gorgeously attlrei band of.minstrels. The costumes worn by the chorus were ot the colonial style, ana were veiy rich in texture and design. Al Grlca, the Interlocutor, performed the functions with the ease and grace of a professional, while Walter Moore, Howard Stltt, George Miles and Sol Birkenrutb, on the "bone" and Jack Hayes, A. D. Fansler, Harry Doggett and Stewart Frazee on the tambourine ends were par excellent. The opening number ot the first part was an operatic chorus, and was rendered in excellent style. The jokes of the end men were new and brought down the house. Mr. Joseph Rembush, who is always a prime favorite with Logansport audiences rendered a delightful baritone solo entitled "All Life Long" In his usual artistic style. George Miles sang an entirely new coon son? entitled "Black Annie" with good eflect. A beautiful ballad entitled "Take Back Your Gold" was sung by Charles Burke, who possesses a rich tenor voice, with such good eflect that the audience repeatedly encored him. A. D. Fansler rendered a "Red Hot Coon" a dialect song in such an artistic style that he was recalled and had to repeat Walter Moore is always a favorite and the audience was so well pleased with his singing ot "Cause Ma BaOy Loves Me" that they called him back {repeatedly. William McKee rendition ot that popular tenor solo "When Lovers Prove Unkind," wa an artistic rendition of a difficult and pleasing piece of music. Jauie Murphy never fails to please, and th beautiful ballad, "On the Banks o the Wabash," sang by him. so capti vated the audience that he also wa compelled to respond to an encore. Funny Jack Hayes scored the success of his life in his rendition of that popular coon song, "First Wench Done Turned White." Paul Jordan, although suffering from a severe cold, sang a beautiful baritone solo, entitled, "She Told Me I Was Dreaming," with pleasing effect. The first part was concluded by Willie Wilkln, who well deserves the title, the rising young comedian. He introduced an original specialty, entitled, "Nit, Nit, Nit," in which he introduced several local hits that brought down the audience. The olio was replete with pleasing features, among which was the sing- Ing of the Imperial Quartette, composed of Messrs. Thomas Chaae, Frank Schlelger, Charles Burke and Ed Ho well. Willie WOkin and Sol Blrkenruth, In their specialty, "The Thompson Street Cadets," In which they introduced an original song and dance- and their lightning baton drill, proved an agreeable surprise to the audience, and proved their ability to handle the baton iii a masterly manner. "Topics of the Day," war a stump speech, and introduced Wai ter Moore as Senator Farobank, and Paul Jordan as Senator J. B. For-a cure, and was very funny. Haye and Wilkin, In their soogaiid dance entitled, "Ell Grean's Cake Walk, was a refined and gracetul bit of dancing, and proved these gentlemen to be far above the average amateurs. Ttieir singing was fine and their dancing excellent. Joseph Rembusch rendered a trombone solo, entitled, "The Signal," and was recalled, to which he responded. Norris and Godman are clog dancers of no mean ability and their clog and statue dancing would du credit to more pretentious artists. A clever burlesque was Introduced by James McKague. After G. W. Fender had announced that Sandow, the world- famed strong man, who happened to be In the city, had consented to appear and give an exhibition of his feats of strength, Mr. McKague appeared and brought down the house. The performance concluded with a clever sketch entitled, "Ten Nlgnts In a Bar Room." SO PKBFOKSLAKCE TONIGHT. The performance will not be repeated tonight. The Peru date las .so been declared off. This decision was reached lust night after it had een learned that it would be im- ossible to keep the company to- ether. Mr. Moore could not remain way from his business longer, and ithers Sad contracted a severe cold. THE POsTOFFiCE CLOCK. Carriers and Cleits Bfgin Work Under the Time Registering System. The new government clock, known as the Bundy, is in place at the Logansport postoffice. By this clock the clerks aad carriers do all their work. A registering machine records the time each one begins work In the morning, the time the carriers leave on their various trips, the time of their.return and the time they quit in the evening. Each employe has his number and the turn of a key records the moves, It is an ingenious labor saving device. The clock strikes five minutes before leaving time forj the mail carriers and again when the time arrives. The rlboon on the reel containing the record is taken out and pasted into a book, showing tiie exact movements of clerks and carriers for eaca ay and the time devoted to each articular branch of the work. •••••••»••••••»*•••••»•»» Fur Opening WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY, Dec. 8 and 9 by a large Eastern Fur Manu- J: focturer.

Catherine Hyman Reagan, wife of J. E. Reagan, formerly of Cass county, died at her home near Croten, Mich., Nov. 21, 1397, aged 59 years. She leaves a husband, one daughter, four sons and four grandchildren, with a host of friends to mourn her loss. Among her many friends, who were so devoted to her during her last sickness, were Mrs. Lydia Harrison, Mrs. Emma Hickson, Mrs. Eva Slaight, Mrs. Edlsh Stray,. .Mrs. Louisa Mouch, Mrs. John 'Miller, Mrs. Minnie Bennett, Mrs. Thomas Loyd and Mrs. Hickson.

R. P. Mr. and Mrs. Lyman Lownsend are to be remembered among the mourners of Howard City. The text was taken ilrom, "She bath done whit she could." An Interesting Case Reversed. The supreme court has reversed the case from Cass county of the State against the Wabash Paper company. This suit was one brought against the company for violation of the law in polluting the waters of the Wabasb by emptying certain acid refuse into the river. The Loeans- port judge quashed the indictment on the ground that the offense was committed in Wabusb. county. The supreme court, in its decision yesterday, bold* that as the company put the offending matter in the river, and the natural current carried the same to Cass county, the indictment is good. In other words, an unlawful act begun in one county and completed in another, the same may be laid In either county. To Theatre Patrons.
