The' Military. Band went out to Royal Center last evening in full force and gave an excellent musical, and specialty. performance in Thomas' opera house at that place. They returned at mid-night loaded down both with the golden, opinions and the sheckles of the good people of Royal Center who turned out in great style to greet our crack band. The boys give.a very meritorious performance and are getting in shape to give the same for the delectation of a Logansport audience before long. agent at the Pan Handle station, related a thrilling story to a Journal reporter last night concerning the late James Gormerly, general foreman of .the Pan Handle round house at Chicago who died Wednesday. It was during the great engineers strike in 1873, when engines all over the West- era system were being run at the peril of the brave men who manned them that G-ormerly, who was ;[then foreman at the Chicago shops, threw himself into the breach and was one of the volunteer force to run engines out of Chicago, His run was on a limited through this city, and when the beligerent strikers here learned that- he would pass through Logansport they declared that they would kill him. The officials here telegraphed this fact up the road, and instructed Gormerly to run his engine right through without stopping. This he did and as he passed the station here which was thronged by the excited strikers the brave engineer crouched low behind the boiler, as the demonstrations of the strikers were so intense that it was feared some excited person would fire at him. He ran the gauntlet safely, however, •but-at the first switch, nearly fell into the hands of 'the strikers, • one ot whom threw the switch declaring that -he would ditch the engine, A policeman drew a revolver and holding it at the striker's head swore that he /would blow his brains'out if he did not throw the switch back. The switch was closed and Gormerly passed through the city safely. There were several equally exciting incidents during tha.t memorable strike. The death of James Gormerly at Chicago is deeply regretted by hosts of his railroad associates in this city. The deceased was one of the most thoroughly tried and trusted men in.the employ of the Pennsylvania system and was declared by high officials to be one of the very best men in the western service. He was many years ago forman of the shops hers and for many years has held the responsible position of general foreman of the shops at Chicago. His funeral to-day at 10 o'clock will be attended by officials from all parts of, the road, a number of whom together with his old friends and co-laborers. will go from here this morning. '.'• A party of Wabasfl officials consist: ing of General Manager Hayes, General Superintendent Magee, Division Superintendent Gould and General Freight agent Knight passed through the city yesterday afternoon westward bound in their private car. Supt. Goujd remained in the city until the arrival of the next train going' east, in consultation with Agent Newell. JTIcrlt Wins.

The dollar sign is not as some suppose a corruption of the monogram "U.

Attorney-general Smith Wednesday rendered an opinion of much importance, ^involving, as it. does, property to the^value of several millions of dollars. The .State Board of Tax Commissioners asked whether, -under the provisions of the sixth : clause of Section 5 *of the gen era! tax-law, approved March 6, 1891, a parsonage not attached to a church.- is exempt from taxation. To this inquiry the Attorney-general replied that Section 5 of that act,'among other things, -provided that every building used for religious worship and the pews and furniture within the same, and also the parsonage attached thereto and occupied as such, andjand whereon said building or buildings -are situated, not exceeding ten acres, .when owned by .the.church or religious society or in trust for its use, shall : he exempt from taxation. : : :..: .; - :: A Cold Float. Delphi Journal: John Charles 'Wilson, of Logansport,: floated down the Wabash river last Sunday as far as Attica. It was rather a-Cold float but, young Wilson appeared to enjoy it IK tlie Name Selected for tile New Social Club. There was a good attendance at the new court room last evening to further consider the project of a new social club. The committee on name reported that they had decided upon "The Pottawattomie Club" as most appropriate and that report was approved. The Committee on Constitution and By-Laws then reported and after discussion and some change sthe report was adopted. The shares were fixed at $25, no man to hold more than four, and the monthly dues at one dollar. A committee was appointed to get signatures to the-constitution and that committee was authorized to report through the-papers and to fix a date for final organization. A Labor of Love Attended By Very Questionable Kesults. Even the wild native of the Andaman isles—that land of sorrowful memories —appears to be susceptible of intellectual cultivation. Rev. Mr. Chard has been relating to the inmates of the An- 'daman orphanage the "curious career of 'a savage," who seems to have been "caught wild" at eight years old In the Andaman isles by a Deputy Surgeon- General and sent by him to schools at Rangoon- and Bangalare. Joseph acquired a thorough colloquial knowledge of English, besides some acquaintance Vr'ith the English literary style. He also studied the properties of medicines with good results. After his patron's death he led a wandering life in South India, in the companionship of Tamils and Telugus, whose languages, and more especially the Tamil tongue, he was said by educated natives to speak with remarkable purity. His natural amiability, which is, we are assured, character^ istic of the improved Andamese, made. Joseph welcome in many a native- bazar, besides procuring him tfce honor of an offer from a South Indian Rajah of a position in his Highness' brass, band. Next wa find him at Madras, taking service at one t'me as cab-n servant aboard one of the British Steam Navigation • Company's vessels, and finally turning to account his knowledge of medicines as compounder in the Rangoon hospital and aboard a British gunboat. That this Andamese Admirable Cricbton should after all be found by the Bishop destitute in the streets of Rangoon at twenty or little more is sad; but'the reason unhappily involves no great mystery. While availing himself of the advantages of civilization Joseph had developed a passion for strong drinks, together with "a phenomenal habit of lying." In vain did the good Bishop seek to rescue his protege by sending him back to the An- •daman isles; in vain did Dr. Mackenzie, the senior medical officer at Port Blair, give him another opportunity of compounding. Joseph's habits were found to be incompatible with civilized life, and he was ordered to be interned in the recesses of the jungle. When.last seen he was, according to Mr. Chard's graphic description, "clothed solely in the atmosphere, save for a daubing of fat and red mud."—London DailvNews. TRY BEEF, WINE and IRON, As a Tonic.

Mr. and Mrs. M. D- Miller and.

"Ah, this one I will save. No, I guess this one is more valuable." Thus he hesitated, and among his many books, all of which were dear to him, he was unable to decide which one to save. Just then the cries of firemen were raised, and the judge (vas urged to come down and save his life. Being thoroughly alarmed and still . undecided, he turned and grabbed the first book in rpach and rushed out of the building. On reaching the pavement he found he had saved—the city directory. The Cases of the New Haven Directors in tlie General Sessions Court. NEW YORK, April 9.—None of the in dieted directors of the New Haven, road appear in part 1 of the court o: general sessions. It was expected tba' they would he on hand "because their counsel were to move for a transfer of the case from the court of general sessions to the court of Oyer and Terminer. Pending, the motion a stay of proceedings was obtained from Justice Barrett. The directors owere represented by John M. Bowers and Henry W. Taft, with John M. Townsend, Jr., as associate counsel. Mr. Bowers «ntered a plea ol not guilty for his clients, with the privilege of withdrawing that plea and substituting another or demurring." Mr. Bowers requested that the plea be allowed to stand until the argument on the question of removing the case to Oyer. and Terminer be heard. The court hesitated to accept- such a plea and the matter was adjourned ten days. SCALDED TO DEATH. wo PIuco to find t!ie News. Tangle— ; Wbat's the news, Bronson? Bronson—I don't know.
