PRYOR The Druggist bandies the purest drugs which the mar ket produces.— PRESCRIPTIONS A specialty. S16 E. Broaday st. The report of William R. Mclieen, president, and of John G, Williams, general manager of the Vandalia lines, will be published next week in pamphlet form. This report will show tho earnings of the different divisions to have been as follows: The gross earnings of the Terre Haute & Indianapolis railroad, for the fiscal year ending October 31, 1990, $1,213,- (J19.54; an increase over the previous year of $82,509.76, or 7.39 percent. The net earnings were $379,762.09; an increase over the previous year of $68,525.82, or a little more than 22 per cent. The gross earnings of the Vandalia division during the same period were $1,833,300.85; an increase over the previous year of $106,091.0-1, 01- C.14 per cent. The expenses absorbed 64.52 per cent, of the earnings; a decrease of 2.18 per cent, as compared with the previous year. After paying the rental there remained as profit from the operation of this road $100,466.08; an increase over the previous year of 76.30 per cent. The Terre Haute and Logansport division, during the same period, earned $594,155.58; an increase over the previous year of $25,017.68, or 4.40 per cent. The expenses absorbed 75.30 per cent, of the earnings; a decrease as compared with the previous year of 4.43 per cent. After payment of the rental there was a loss from the operation df this road of only $1,766,03, as against a loss during the previous year ..of $26,893.83. The increase in gross earnings is due to the hard work of the employes in the passenger and freight departments. The increase in net earnings should be credited to the present excellent management of the property. While the policy of the management has been far from niggardly, tbe road has been operated on an economical basis, and in the interest of the patrons as well as the stockholders, and has demonstrated that President McKeen, in the selection of a general manager, secured' the right man in taking John G. Williams.—Indianapolis Journal. In the Circuit Coni't, The case of Richason, Mye^s and the railway company, vs. C'apt. J. C. Brophy, a suit to settle the ownership of the pretty little sheet of water down in Jefferson township known as Lake Oicott is still occupying cue attention of the court and jury, Capt Bropby's interests are looked after by M. Winfield, and Dykeman, Wilson & Tuber, while the plaintiffs are represented by Nelson & Myers and George E. Ross. The case will probably consume two mot't days.

GETTYSBURG STATUE. The Griiml JVIonbmeut to He Erected by New. York State. An official invitation was given, some time ago, to numerous American sculptors of established reputation in interpreting-the salient features of the civil war, to submit designs for the New York state monument, for which 850,000 has been appropriated at Albany. The award under this invitation was ma,de to the eminent military sculptor, Caspar Buberl, under the conditions laid down by the state board of cpmmissioners, and signed by the president, Gen. Daniel E. Sickles, which offered a premium of 8500 for the best design, of 8300 for the second best, and of S200 for tbe third best. The monument, which Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper calls the loftiest and most imposing- that will mark the field of Gettysburg-, is 90 feet high from the base line to the apex of the surmounting figure, while the national monument only rises to a height of 65 feet. The base line is 27J4 feet square and the diameter of the bronze drum, ornamented in emblematic figures and compositions, is 0 feet 9 inches in height and 5 fedt 3 -inches in diameter. Higher up is a polished granite shaft 33 feet in the perpendicular, and surmounted by an ornate capital; and above all is the commanding-female fig-ure of Victory, with outstretched palm and" laurel. Besides the bronze work mentioned is a bronze trophy on the main facade, i. «., an eagle, flags, musketry, cannon, giving a: very picturesque effect. On the four sides of the square pedestal are bronze panels telling, in raised letters, of the deeds, of the New York soldiery on that eventful field.

A cleverly concocted plan for escaping from the'county jail, involving possibly the destruction of the building and its inmates, has just been discovered at Ft. Wayne, and by the merest chance. It happened that in the rear wall of the cell in which two burglars, McNally and Tancy, were confined there is a wide crevice in the masonry. The space had been filled with earth and cement and some combustible material. , The two prisoners, discovering the defect, removed, the cement and earth and kindled a fire in ~ the crevice. The smoke passed off through the ventilators and was not to be detected in the jail. A plumber working in the attic over the cells was attracted by the noise of the prisoners below, and when an investigation was made it was found that the burglars had, with knives and fire, opened'a passage almost wide enough to admit of a man squeezing through. By the end of another day a wholesale escapade to the jail attic would have been possible, and thence an easy route to liberty. Italians In Indiana. "A band of barefooted Italians passed through this city," says a Fort Wayne special, "this morning from the^South en route over the Grand Rapids. & Indianapolis road for Grand Rapids. Two women, one man, and two children looked pitifully poor. Their thin rags'which might answer for clothing in Southern Louisiana where they had lived, will be of little service against the northwest '-winds' from Lake Michigan to-day. It was said these Italians left the South on account of the bitter feelings against their nationality in that section." Women are not slow to comprehend. They're quick. They're alive, and yet it was a man who discovered the one remedy for their peculiar ailments. The man was Dr. Pierce. , The discovery was his "Favorite Prescription"—the boon to delicate women; Why go round "with one'foot in the grave," suffering in silence- misunderstood—when there's a remedy at band tLat isn't an experiment, but which is sold under the guarantee that if you are disappointed in any way in it, you can get your money back by applying to its makers. We can hardly imagine a woman's not trying it. Possibly it may be true of one or two—but we doubt it. Women are ripe for it. Think of a prescription and nine out of ten waiting for it. Carry the news to them! The seat of sick headache is not in in-the brain. Regulate the stomach and you cure it. Dr. Pierce's Pellets are the Little Regulators. .-.,..

As to manures, onions are great feeders and" like something to select from. I advise'applying at least ten cords 'of barnyard manure per acre, or its equivalent. Farmers in the vicinity of Boston use twenty cords of stable manure, but I think it better to use half the qiiantity of manure, and the other'half in commercial fertilizers, or, cheaper yet, to use all. fertilizer. The latter can be applied at any period of growth, but there is danger from using a .phosphate continuously. In Bermuda the onion growers use part sea manure and part commercial fertilizers. One of my neighbors uses ten cords of a mixture of barnyard manure, sea manure and night soil, a very concentrated manure, probably equal to double the quantity of ordinary barnyard manure. I recommend the application of three hundred pounds of nitrate of soda per acre just as the crop b.egins to bottom; or, if the'crop looks feeble, a complete fertilizer may be used. la all fanning a good deal of manure seems to be misapplied, and I suggest the use of less manure and more of commercial fertilizer.—J, J. H. Gregory, in Farm and Home. square, arc placed the corps badges of the New York commands engaged, as follows: Engineer, Artillery, First, Second, Third, Fifth, Sixth, Eleventh, Twelfth and signal corps, and cavalry. The encircling drum is the historic part of the structure and composition. On the front quadrant is "The Fourth of July," a sitting female figure in a sunburst, reposing in "the folds of the stars a*id stripes, and flanked on either side by. allegorical figures of History and'. Justice. The second quadrant,' "The First of July," portrays in a pathetic composition the death of Gen. Reynold's. 'The third quadrant, "The Second of July," a group showing Gen. Sickles wounded and being borne from the field. The 'fourth, "The Third of July," Hancock falling from his horse. Below this bronze illustration are thirty-six stars representing the indissoluble union. The quadrants are also separated by trophy-pilasters representing^ the different branches of the military art by suitable emblems. The directing engineer of the monument is Mr. fl. A. Zabriski, assistant to Gen. Sickles, and the work is fast near- ins-completion. • WINE-AND-WATER: TRICK. WHOLES AT, R DOORS, SASH, BLINDS^ iLUMBER ~ 1 N. W. Cor. Fourteenth and Maple Ste/ LOUSVILLE, KY. this paper. KiaiculoM Cerdlnoiile*. The garter of the late king of the Netherlands will be returned shortly to the lord chamberlain. This is not personally delivered up, but it is recovered "by a lengthy process. A functionary known as.the garter king- of anas in- .timates .the king's demise to the lord •chamberlain, and reminds him of the fact that the king was a knight of our •most ancient and honorable order. The lord chamberlain communicates with the foreign secretary, who sends a dispatch on the subject to our minister at the Ha'ffue, who mentions the matter to the D*tch, minister of foreign affairs, an'd'he requests the master of the royal househoM-to send the insignia forth- .with, either to the British legation or to the Dutch" minister in London, for delivery to the lord chamberlain at St. James' palace. The robes and outfit of the royal knights, which cost nearly Sip,000, are not returned, but only the. insignia. The' death of" King. William did riot make a vacancy, as. like all other royalties he was an extra knight. . Figgs—How! did • you get so bald—too much brara.fag? Diggs—Jfo—hair restorer.—3kinsey'» Weeklv." It Takes Time and Skill to Do It, Bat It May Be Done. The game, or puzzle, or trick, or ex periment, or whatever you like to call it, which is given here requires some skill and patience. You take, says the Boston Globe, two wine-glasses of the same size; fill one with, claret or an y other dark wine, and the other with water. But don't doit on the dinner table—at all events not while the 'tablecloth is on it— for unless you are careful you may spill the wine; and you know that those who soil the tablecloth have to kiss the laundress. Next you cover the glass of water with a card and put it upside down on the glass filled with wine,'so that the two brims fit exactly on each other. Then you move the card between the two glasses just sufficiently to leave a small opening between the two glasses. The water immediately begins to flow into the wine, and the wine, which is the lighter of the two fluids, mounts into the glass on the to]i. ' It takes quite' a long time—nearly an hour;—to complete the experiment, but you will then see that the wine and water have exchanged places, and the water has driven the wine into the "upper house." __^______ '- Her Idea of'It.
