Paul Alexander Jobnstone, the mind reader who appeared in Logansport a year or two ago and drove around the town blindfolded and found a key that had been hidden by a commlceee, is now in Kansas City. A telegram announces that he proposes to take a trip around the world blinfffoldea. At the same time he is going to beat the record for- globetrotters. "I have about made arrangements for the trip," said Johns tone. "A great many of my friends have tried to persuade me to give up tbe Idea, bat I do not think I shall. Of course, it will be a great strain on me mentally and physically. So far my pian is to have the president or some high official in Washington start a packet of letters around the world and, after it has been gone about three weeks. I will be blindfolded and start out after it. The blindfold will not be removed from my eyes during the entire trip, and I will follow the packet and try to overtake It. I think I can do this." DON'T BE AFRAID, Don't Hesitate to Tell tbe Reporter of Matters Concerninj Yourself. "Many good items of news are lost to the newspapers by the people who hesitate 'to tell the reporters of matters concerning themselves," says an exchange. "Not that they do not want it to appear in print, but they are afraid they would be pushing themselves forward. This Is a wrong Idea. From a reportorial standpoint, the aaan who will stop a newspaper reporter on the street and inform him that he has been absent from the city or is going to be absent, that he is going to be married, or his wife entertained friends from a distance, is the best man alive. May his likeness increase throughout the earth, If you have done anything mean or disreputable it isn't necessary to tell it, for there are always plenty of people who will do it for you. It Is good things about yourself and neighborhood that the newspaper man wants you to give him." _; TRE DROUTH A BENEFIT. ADDITIONAL ITEMS. Scientists Say the Ground Has Been Fertilized by It and Insects Killed. That all things work together for our good finds a new Illustration in the report that scientists and many practical farmers now say that the recent drouth has proved of Incalculable benefit. The ground has been fertilized by the chemical condition created by the long, heated dry spell and the crop damaging insects have become almost extinct. It is said that the greatest benefit comes through the destruction of the Hession "fly" that has been so widespread in its damage of growing wheat., If this is true the farmers surely have cause for self-congratulation. Tbe Good Lack Garter, Made with a genuine rabbit's foot, taken trom the left hind tnot of a rabbit, killed in a country graveyard at midnight, during the dark of the moon, on Friday, the thirteenth of the month, by a cross-eyed, left- handed, red-headed, bow-legged negro, riding a white horae: "Secret wishes may oft be consummated By the owner of a lucky rabbit's f oot.''—Shakespeare. These lucky garters are sold by Dewenter, the hatter and. furnisher. Annual Gas Bates. Artificial and natural gas bills are now due and payable at the company's offloe.

The plate glass factory strike at Kokomo is not yet settled, although the labor' commissioners are doing their best. The windows ot the local stores are being decorated for Christmas a little earlier this year than usual, Some of the displays are very handsome. The Christmas editions of the big New York dailies are being put on sale by the local newsdealers, and they seem to be selling in large numbers, The New Otto gives china and glassware free to their customers. Even if tbe goods are no cheaper, and they claim they are, the presents are a clear gain. Monroe Selberling, who expended 165,000 In building a mansion at Kokomo, has sold his Indiana possessions and removed to Peoria, Ills., to manufacture bicycles. Many men are being discharged at McKinleyvllle, owing to a dullness In the stone trade. The closing down of the glass factories will result in more men being discharged in a few days. If you neglected to read the opening chapters of "The Weldon Estate" the synopsis printed at the head of the etory will start you In all right. Those who are reading the romance pronounce it splendid. An increase of tweuty-nine completed oil wells in Indiana has been effected over that of last month. Peru leads the list of wells, having ninety-seven, the total cumber being 318, which only leaves twenty-one for the other sections of the state. Do not be deceived about silver plated flat ware, knives, forks, spoons, etc. There are so many goods on the market bearing tbe name Kogers, that the word Rogers is no longer a guarantee ot quality. The brands sold by Taylor can be relied on as the best goods made. There is a war against the Chinese laundries in many of the towns In Indiana, and in Peoria, 111., Monday night, the laundry workeis in "white men's" laundries organized for the express ourpose of starting a crusade against the Chinese evil. Logansport has but one laundry run by the almond-eyed race, but it seems to be doing a good business. A Mental Culture society has been organised here, with Mrs. Dr. Nefl as president and Mrs. Harry Tucker, secretary. The club will devote considerable time to the study of China, and much pleasure as well as intellectual development is anticipated. The regular meetings will be held on Thursdays. The club will meet at the home of Mrs. Alice Hensley, on East Market street. Smoke the Columbia Hood's Pills Should be la every family medicine chest and every traveller's grip.

John W. Isham's Famous Octoroons, flattered by imitators the wide world over, will be the attraction offered at Dolan's opera house on Saturday night with a programme said co be varied and interesting. The caat of characters numbers the best in their lice, the costumes are tasty and in harmoay with each particular scene, which latter consists ot some of the prettiest selections from, the comic and grand operas, and also olios ot some of the absurdities ot the day. "Tbe Blackville Outing at Darktown Park," the curtain raiser, is a skit abounding In such ludicrous situations and apt hits that an audience is at once thrown into uncontrollable laughter, which never entirely ceases until the curtain's fail. Among the specialties, there is not one but what is good. The voices show high cultivation, are strjng and sweet and the operatic selections are always received with well merited recognition and praise from the most exacting audiences. NlPOLEOS'8 YALCE OF VICTORY. It Finds a Striking Counterpart In Recent World Triumphs. Napoleon knew well the value of a victory; After Austerlltz the world seemed bis. Fame invited, fortune favored, everything stimulated his asptrlng ambition. With growing power he gathered the fruits of victory. And so it ever has been. Success succeeds. A notable Illustration of this truth Is furnished by the great victories won at the World's Fair in '93 and the California Midwinter Fair in '94 by Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder. Ever increasing sales and popularity have been the result. The people have promptly ratified the official verdicts that declared Dr. Price's, for leavening power, keeping qualities, purity and general excellence, the "foremost baking powder lu all the world." Quite as quickly as the great emperor do they know the value of a victory that means world-wide supremacy. Mrs. J. 0. Ward, of 613 High street, was awarded a quilt disposed of by Mrs. T. B. Helm.
