The V r andalia in 1890 carried, but seventy-four more through passengers between Indianapolis and St. Louis than in 1889. Engine 351 was taken out of the shops where she has been rebuilt. She will be put on passenger service between Chicago and here. Ullysses Wilson, formerly an em- ploye of the Pan Handle boiler shop, has accepted a position as engineer at Will Fernald.'s saw mill. The' item in Thursday's daily in reference to Engineer Chas. Mitten giving up his position, is an error. Mr. Mitten has been sick all winter, but is better now and will resume his run on Monday next. The Order of Railway Conductors in the States' of Missouri, Kansas and Texas'will meet'on the 26th of this month, in Kansas City, to consider the amalgamation with the Brotherhood of Railway Conductors, that they may join the Federated Railway Em- ployes. It is nor thought that the move will be of any great, importance. ' 'Your mention in yeslerday'sJournal of the Gormerly episode during the strike of '73, brings to my mind another incident that happened a short time before the great strike, "remarked a gentleman who was formerly in the employ of the Pan Handle company. "There was at that time a young- man employed as hostler in the round house here who was anxious for promotion. This young man we will for: convenience sake call Jack. Although there were five or six ahead of him in the line of promotion he arranged a scheme,, which, if successful, would give . him the first opening for advancement. The engine dispatcher was a man of but tew words and what he said was to the point, but withal a practical joker. He had one fault however and that was his love for liquor and although he was never seen intoxicated it was generally known that he liked his budge. On this man's susceptibility Jack intended to work his scheme. He accordingly approached his intended victim and said: ''Mr. Blank I wish to tell you something. I don't like to report anybody, but there is a talk in circulation among the railroad men concerning you which I can not help but tell you about." "What do they say now?" gruffly queried old Blank. "They say," answed Jack, "that you take a drink every chance you get." For one instant only old Blank's eyes glistened with a roguish gleam and then he fell back in his usual composure. Now there used to .je a saloon opposite the Second Ward. Third Wurd. Fourth Ward.

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 tliat '.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 ne'ws 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.

At this place old Blank proposed to meet Jack at a certain time have Jack invite him to a social glass and then and there would show the assembled multitude whether or not he could refuse a drink. Jack was more than elated at the success of his scheme, and probably already imagined himself on the right hand side of a passenger engine. Accordingly he arrived at the above named saloon at the stated hour and found that old Blank had arrived already and was standing near the stove warming himself. . It struck our feative Jack as rather strange that an unusually large crowd had assembled this particular evening, and that they were even .for railroad men on pay day rather hilarious. But nothing- daunted our Jack approached the grand mogul, and said: "Mr. Blank, will you have something?'^'"Don't mind if I do," replied the old man. ."I guess I'll take a little whisky." The crowd laughed uproriously aud for a moment' pandemonium reigned supreme. When poor Jack saw that he was trapped he sub-, mitted gracefully, and "set ,'em up" all around.. . It is hardly necessary to. mention that his promotion was delayed for awhile.' DoafneBS Can't be Cured by local applications, as they can not reach the diseased portion ol the ear.

Biddle of Logansport reached the four-score limit last week and is slill in the enjoyment of good health and unimpaired faculties. No city in Indiana can boast of a man of greater erudition. When seventy years of age he retired from active pursuits of life to enjoy the fruits that by industrious habits he had gathered. At his "Island Home" he is surrounded by everything that ministers to the happiness of a man of scholarly attainments. His library contains about all that is worth preserving from the writings of'both ancient and modern auehors. Ai a scholar and author Judge Biddle easily takes rank as Logansport's first citizen. May he live to enjoy such a position for many years to come. A Safe Investment, Is'one which is guaranteed to bring you--satisfactory results, or in case of failure a . return of purchase price.

Angeline Bennett was born : April 4th, 1821, at New Haven. Addison Co,, Ct., and died April 7tb, 1891 at New' Waverly, Ind., aged seventy ' : year.s and two days. She joined the M. E v church when quite young, and remained a faithful and constant mem- •ber ever since. At the ag-e of seventeen^ she was married to Henry M Voorhis, who with six out of fourteen children born to them survive her. Two of-her children were present at her funeral,.the' other four riot being able -to attend. A Irage attendance was at her funeral last Monday.:, Of Intercut to Builders. The following notice has been sent to the'contractors and builders of the The DoKptrnto Str.iibn of Two Men on the Plains hi Earl}' Days. Bitting around the stove at the railroad station one cold clay, wiiiling away the time telling- stories of wild adventures, one old fellow—I forgot his name —asked: "Did you ever see a coyote?" And at once a half dozen chorused: "Let's have it." "Well," he said, as he -knocked the ashes from his pipe and filled it from a huge twist of aromatic "long green," "it was in 1850. I had started early in the spring to the land of gold and'glit- tering generalities, hard-tack and bear meat, with three ox teams loaded with goods supposed to be suited to the mining 1 trade, consisting of heavy boots, miners' jackets, dried fruit, tobacco, cigars, cards and whisky, and was pretty well loaded. At Forts Kearney and Laramie .1 disposed of some extra 'weight and at Salt LaJce disposed of a lot of dry goods I had carried along to trade to the Mormon, merchants. After laying in a supply of flour at 82.5 a 100 and resting our stock, we struck out over Thousand Sprfng-s valley to the head of Hurnboldt river, following it" down to the 'Big Meadows,' where we made hay for our cattle and took in water preparatory to crossing- the great desart between the 'sinks' of Eumboldt. and Carson rivers. Finally we were in the midst of a trackless waste, and water worth -$1 a pint, dead mules and oxen enough to fence a lane, clear, across it, and a 51,000,000 worth of outfit scattered all the way, not a mouthful of grub of any kind except what was in our wagons and -with 10,000 coyotes howling and yelping worse than a legion of devils. The only living things to be seen were owls, prairie dogs, rattlesnakes and coyotes. '"It was right in the middle of this wild, barren, sandy desert, surrounded by the whole coyote family, with one day's rations of grub and water, that we had to double teams and leave one of our wagons while the others attempted to reach grass and water on the Carson that Morton and I were left •to guard the last wagon. "After supper, which we were careful enough to have over before night, the music and dancing- began. The owls screeched; snakes rattled, prairie' dogs barked and 10,000 coyotes set up their howl. Nearer and nearer they came—round and round they trotted— and we were forced to flee to our wagon for safety. Under and around they 'trotted,, growling, whining- and yelping, every one making the njg-ht more hideous by-seeming to make a dozen of himself just to see how much pandemonium he could scare up. "What a night! and still another we must stay. The first was bad enough, but on the second one the animals returned with reinforcements. They leaped upon the front of the wagon, which tve- had barricaded the best we could, and we had to fight them with our pistols and guns, and a desperate fight it was. First one and then the other would punch them back. Morton killed one as it leaped into the front of the wagon, and as it fell back a dozen grabbed and devoured it in less time than I can tell it. This only made them ten times more ferocious, and it became a fight of life and death to both of us. One after another leaped at us, snapping, snarling'and determined to have us for a picnic supper. Morton had a foot snapped off, I had a hand badly torn and was nearly stripped of clothing. Both our guns were broken and we were about to yield the fight when daylight broke up the game. They decamped. I:bound up Morton's leg with some old rags and then finished our last ration and sat down to wait for the .returning teams upon, which depended our lives. At ten o'clock they hove in.sight and there was more rejoicing in that solitary wagon than I can. tell.. We.made it safe through in due time. Morton, finally went to Valparaiso and died. I gathered up a hundred thousand—here I am in a way station as ticket agent on the Chicago, Kansas City & Topeka railway.

From experiments at.

In March-of this year a heavy gale blew for three 'days and nights at Skerry- vore,-washing out blocks of limestone and granite of three and fire tons weight as easily as if they. had been empty' .eggshells. One block of limestone, estimated - to be -of fifteen tons weigit, was moved over one hundred .and.fifty feet from a place in the surf where it had been firmly grounded since 1697, it having first been rolled in sight by-the»awful gale of the "windy Christ-; mas"-of that year.
