A Strange Story IVliIch Conic* to Light After Sixteen Ycur*— \Vlio HobtKHl the Gravi*? The Delphi Journal tells the follow, ing strange story which implicates Logansport in a serious manner. The Journal says: "Generally the mysteries told by old and abandoned cemeteries are those written on the head stones. And it is sometimes difficult to decipher these, as time with its wind and rain, its moss and creeping vines obliterate much that the stranger, led by curiosity, would fain make substance of his knowledge. But.it is better thus than as" David A. Stoner' found it last Wednesday when he came to Delphi from the'Soldiers'' Home, at Marion, on a mission tender and sorrowful. He came to remove from their graves in the old cemetery the hones of . those near and dear to him, of his son,,John Stoner, and Harriett, his wife, who died in 1875, and of his [our-year-old son and Mary Stoner, his sister-in-law, who died in 1862. The bones of the two who died in 1S62 were in a perfect state of preservation, the coil of the woman's hair being as perfect as the day she was buried, nearly a quarter of a century ago.. ,. •"But when the bottom of. the graves in which' were laid at rest the todies of the wife and-elder son was reached, there was no sign whatever that anyone had ever.been buried there. To make doubly sure; Henry Duker and Jacob Stoner, who did the •. digging, went -carefully" over the clay with their hands, and no trace of the bones of any one; could be .discovered. In the bottom of one of the graves were the decayed parts of a sign that had been lettered in - gold leaf, the only letters adjoined that • could be distinguished being -T E's.V Mr. Stoner will accept no other solution of the mystery than that the graves were robbed, and indeed there appears no other way of explaining : the matter. '" ' The bodies were buried in black walnut caskets. Both of those whoso bodies are missing died in Logansport, and'were brought here for interment. Mr. Stoner's theory is that 1 they were followed here from Logansport and taken up by ghouls, from that city, but of courss this is merely speculation on his part. • • • Mr. Stoner is well known to the people of this community having lived here for many 'years. , For twelve years he was in the employ of E. W. Hubbard & Co., and it was '-his. attachment for Delphi and her -people' that led him to return the bodies of his family to this place for interment. The bones of the two who died in ; 1862 were deposited in the cemetery at Pittsburg. The places prepared' fer the bones of John Stoner and Harriett Stoner were-left -vacant, • so - to remain'forever. Probably not until the last day will it be known who it was who laid profane: hands upon, the sacred dust of the dead. The removal'of other bodies from this old cemetery will be watched with no small degree of interest. He Arrived on Time. Reminiscenses of the late P. T. Barn urn are being raked up on all sides. The following story of his lecture tour through this and other States in I860 is told in his autobiography: . He had an engagement on one occa sion to lecture at'Fort Wayne, but ha missed the train 'from Clevelan thither. . He went to the superintend ent-of the Toledo & Wabash. road for special train. Barnum said to th superintendent. "I will give two hundred dollar and even more, if you say so. to put'into Fort Wayne before 8 o'clock to-night; and really'I hope you wil accommodate me. 1 "The superintendent looked m thoroughly over in half a minute, and I fancied he had come to the conclusion that I was a burglar, a counter feiter, or something - worse fleeing from justice. My surmise was confirmed when, he slowly remarked: " 'Your business must be verj .pressing, sir.' , " •" -It is, indeed.' I replied. •! am Barnum, the museum . man, and am engaged to speak in Fort Wayne tonight.' . "He evidently' did not catch • the whole of my response, for he immediately said: . - .• , " 'Oh, it is'a show,' eh? Where is old Barnum himself ?' •" 'I am Barnum,' I replied, 'andIt ls-a lecture which I advertised to give -to-night; and^I would not disappoint the people for anything.' •" 'Is this P. T. Barnum?' said th'e superintendent; starting to his feet. : '• 'I am. sorry to say'it is,' I replied. " 'Well, Mr. Barnum,'said'he, earnestly, 'if 'youcan;'stand it to ride to Fort.Wayne in the .caboose to a freight : train, your well-established reputation for punctuality in- keeping 'your , engagements shall not suffer on - account of the Toledo, Wabash & Western Railroad.' " 'Caboose!' said I, with a laugh, •I would ride to. Fort Wayne .astride of the engine, or boxed up and stowed ,away. in a freight car, if necessary, in order to meet my engagement.' " Mr. Barnum arrived at Fort Wayne in time for the lecture.., ON EXHIBITION HERE. A Well Knoww Wholesale HoRse. .Richmond Telegram: The wholesale grocery that the late Louis H. Hicks of this city, and A. L. Pogue,' also of this city, were/formerly interested in, at. Logansport, has again changed names, as a • result of :Hon. A. R."Shroyer, .well known and having numerous relatives here, having retired. At its inception in 1866, the firm was Hicks,' Elliott & .Shroyer,, then 1871, Elliott, Pogue & Shroyer, the senior partner being'the late 1 .Clint Elliott, originally of Cambridge City or that , vicinity; then, 1879 Elliott, .Shroyer & Co., and HOW, 1891, it is Elliott & Co. Mr. Shroyer went out following the death of Mr. Elliott, some time ago, but the change in name occurred on., the 1st inst. It is now managed by'Jehu T. Elliott, a brother of.'the, late .Mr. Elliott, and a brother-in-law of Mr: Shroyer, while S. J. Elliott, widow of the late Mr. Elliott, is a partner. The latter probably has the .most capital, but Jehu Elliott, who has been. with the house-" for ..twenty years virtually: assumes general 1 •. management of' the business. He is universally! popular with the trade and. thoroughly versed in its needs,, while every inch,,a business man', . .

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 hand tl<at 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. Piercs's Pellets are the Little Eegulators. A lively blaze in the court house at Delphi created • great consternation among the officials of Carroll county last Saturday. The blaze originated, in the .wood work . surrounding the register in the recorder's office but was extinguished before any great damage was done. Mr. J. .B. VanBuskirk, editor of. the Monticello Herald, was in the city yesterday afternoon. Valuable Pointers Furnished By tho Dim* Alnsoum Lecturer. The several signs-at the door announced a grand exhibition of snakes, a tattooed woman, 1 • wax figures repte- senting the Twelve Disciples and tan bast Supper, with rare animals, eto- As we entered the place the lecture* was all ready tobeg-in. He said: "Ladiea and g-sntlemGn, this lady was taboed by the savag-es of Borneo. Some call i* tattoed and some taboed, but it aH means the same thing. Naxfc to her ia a guerilla from Africa. The guerilla it noted for sucking-, the blood of people when asleep. I don't know whether its when the g-uerilla -or the people is asleep, and odds is the difference to you. "This, good people," he continued, passing to the naxt cage, "is the cels- brated buoy constructor, from South America. This reptile is able to crush an ox in his folds. On the left of him is the raccoon, so called from its pait, which, is that of-a racking 1 horse. Next beyond is-a beaver, which secured its name .from Beaver Falls, Wis. That' animal on the, right is called a porku- pine, so named from, its love of pork, and that on the left is an opossum. Thelast named creature gets its name from the Grecian word op, tho Latin word pos,' and the Hebrew word sum." He then posed before the wax figures, and.went on: "This disciple is John, that one Hercules, that one Mark, that one Cicero, arid -so on; all good men. except Judas 'Sc.arr.ot..

''L'ook-a-here, old. man!" exclaimed the lecturer, as he squared off. "I've been"in the show business for twenty odd years, and if you think you know the ropes better than I do you. can take command." . . . "Oh, no,, no, no! You are doubtless right—quite right—and . of course you inow your business. Only ." '"Only what?" "Oh, well, never mind. It struck me as a little : queer, but I guess it's all right—all rijfht.

Description of ftn Early Morning- Scene on a War-Sh.!p nt Sea. Eufus F. Zogbaum, in Scribner's, writes entertainingly of "Uncle Sam's Blue-Jackets.". He thus describes the ivaking-np-of. the crew of the Chicago: 'Bos'n's mate there! Call all hands! Call in the deck lookouts! Lay aloft the ookout. to the masthead!" the orders fol- ow ia rapid succession. "Turn off the spar-deck circuit!" and the great'red acd green lights on the port and star- )oard sides of the bridge and the light at, the. masthead are extinguished by he touch of a button in the. "dynatno- room" below, while a sailor goes "tripling up aloft" to the foretop-sail yard, imultaneously with a long-drawn, shrill whistle of the boatswain's pipe, echoed on the gun-deck by others, and the ioarse cry of the boatswain's mates -ailing: "A-a-llha-a-nds! Up all hammocks!'.' The great ship is waking up,. Mid out of the hatches the : men come umbling one after the other—sailor- men,, apprentice boys, firemen, marines, ooks and "all hands"—-each with a, hammock neatly rolled ready to be placed in he nettings in the bulwarks. Brawny, lare-chested, ', bare-footed fellows, most if- them; regardless of the cold wind ilowing and the wet decks, they run limbl'y.to their appointed stations, some lambering up'-and opening the nettings, hile the others pitch theirbammocks'in nd stow them away and out of sight for the day. As we lean over the rail now arid look down the scene is an ani- maied one. The deck forward is swarming with men, and "Jackie" is making his morning toilet and preparing for breakfast and the day's routine. See that .gigantic young coxswain yonder as he souses his well-soaped neck and face, into the cold water in the bucket before him,'spluttering and blowing away like a grampus, then rubbing and pol shing- his muscular, sunburned neck and broad. wEite back and hairy chest with his rough, parti-colored towel. With his little circular mirror perched on a coil of rope another sailorman. is carefully parting his hair, curly locks, while a shipmate looks, over his shoulder and gives a final twist -to .his black silk neckerchief, and a marine brushes his coat and hums, softly-.to himself meanwhile. The steam from, the galleysis risingput,of the hatches, and with it— mingled, it must be confessed,.'with a smell of oil and grease from the engines -^an odor of hot coffee and broiling bacon, and the .boatswain's whistle is heard again piping to breakfast ' —The illumination of one of the cor- rid'ors-in- the Bridewell prison, Chicago, affords : a-good illustration of some of the- advantages of -the' electric light 1 The lamps -are placed upon'the walls' and-shine" into'the cells.
