At New Albany Wednesday Judge Hester appointed John B. James receiver for the Red Men's Fraternal Accident association and the receivership will extend throughout the country wherever the association operates, sayn an exchange. The appointment was the result of an accident which befel ex-postmaster Schindler, of that city, in July, 1896. He lost an arm while out hunting and could not collect on a policy held in the association. He filed suit and obtained a judgment of 12,600. He could not collect from the association and filed suit for the appointment of a receiver. The headquarters of the association are at Westfield, Mass., and it is understood several policies of the' company are held in this city. Sugar Beets in Northern Indiana. In his address at the farmers' meet ing in Starke county, this week, Prof. Huston, chemist at Purdue university, spoke of sugar beet cul-_ ture as follows: "This is the tenth" crop I have taken off, and during the present year we have had a very much greater Interest here in the matter than ever before. The results are such as to indicate that the Kankakee valley is the most promising section of the state for the establishment of a beet-sugar factory. The yields and the quality ot the beets are both satisfactory.' ID quality the beets exceed those obtained this season from any other parts of the state." The Weather. Rain tonight and Saturday; colder tonight; probably colder Saturday afternoon and night. Official facsimile of \3edal Awarded DR. PRICE'S CREAM BAKING POWDER WORLD'S FAiR,CHICAGO,!893 RAILROAD BREVITIES. Short Items of Interest Gathered From JUny Sources. William Buell.a Panhandle freight conductor on the Columbus division, Is off duty on account of a painful injury to his foot. Three extra freight engines have been put on the Logansport division of the Vandalia tc accommodate the Increasing business. The paymasters on the Pennsylvania will start, out earlier than usual this month In order that the enpioyes may have their Christmas money. The failure to Inspect the Wabash this winter is said to be due to the heavy business the road is doing, giving no opportunity for a proper examination. F. D. Butcher, who has been located as station agent and operator at Jessups, on the Vandalia, has been transferred to«Lucerne, a town a few miles north of Logansport. The county commissioners at Andersun refused to grant a franchise to the Clodfelter, Indianapolis & Marion Electric railway over the roads of the county from Elwood to Alexandria. The company will offer SI,000 cash and a «2,000 bond to keep the highway in repair. James Murphy, of the Panhandle baggage room, has received word of the death ot his friend, Charles Werst, the man whose release from prison he obtained after finding proof of his innocence, Mr. Werst, it will be remembered, was in very poor health while in this city a short time ago. So satisfactory were the tests between Chicago and New York over the Pennsylvania lines that it is believed that next spring the time table will show a train in both directions which will make the ran between these cities in twenty houis, The schedule of its fastest train is now twenty-four hours. Mr. Grlner, fireman on the Panhandle, slipped 'from the cab of his engine last'evening while shoveling coal, suffering a severe gash in his cheek. The a'ccldent happened near the Panhandle station and he was taken to the offise of the company's surgeon, where Dr Hetheringtbn dressed the young man's injuries. Experiments have already been made ou seven representative roads, which show that the average trainload of plying freight is 257 tons, or about 25 per cent of the entire weight hauled. It is claimed that a train of thirty steel cars ot 100,000 pounds capacity would carry 1,500 tons of paying freight with a dead weight of 510 tons, thus making the paying freight carried about 75 per cent of the total tonnage hauled. Forty-six wooden cars would be required to carry the same load and would also increase the train length 517 feet, a very important item in practical railroading. Twenty-five years ago the railroads were equipped with cars ranging from ten to fifteen, tons capacity. Today from twenty-five to thirty tons capacity prevails, and it is claimed that the next ten years will see a general use or fifty-ton cars. Glass Blowers Coming. Backman's Glass Blowers, who have exhibited all over the world, will be located in Logansport next week at 421 Market street, cpposlte Pearl, Hanna's old stand. Six first-class spinners, weavers and' blowers are constantly making ornaments out of glass. Glass dresses, neckties, pin cushions and a steam engine in ful operation, are among the many novelties.

Chambers, Brown,Smithand Jones, the convicted criminals, were taken to the Jeflersonville reformatory last night by Sheriff Homburg. The trip was made on the Louisville train which left here at 12:45. Chambers was handcuffed to Brown and Jones to Smith, The prisoners made the trip from the jail to the station under guard of the sheriff, two deputies and a policeman. Is That So? Miami County Sentinel: Logansport is becoming remarkable for the number of men who carry canes. The most of them do not carry canes to be dudish, but since so many holdups take place in that city the canes are carried for protection. Some of them are heavily loaded with lead and one good blow will stretch a footpad on the ground. Circnlt Court. But little business was transacted in the Circuit court today. Two suits were filed, one by Jordan Hecht, trustee, against Daniel Lybrook to collect a note for «150. The other was a suit brought by E. D. Closson against A- J. Benner to collect a note for $9.90. It was appealed from J. Q. Symon's court, in Jackson township. • PriitiBg »f All Kinds, Letter heads, envelopes, cards, pro- grammes and invitations.—Longwell & Cummings, Masobic temple. jFur Opening: WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY, Dec, 8 and 9 by a large Eastern Fur Manufacturer.
