John Green Timmons of Idaville, was in the city yesterday and was taken suddenly and. seriously ill in the aftprnoon. He was.conveyed to his home last evening at 7:30 and his condition will probably confine Eightieth Birthday. Last Saturday. April llth. the children, grand -children and other relatives, friends and neighbors to the number of fifty, assembled' at 'the home of Mrs. Mary Carter to celebrate her 80th birthday. Four sons, three daughters and nineteen grand children were present. One SOB residing ,in California aud one daughter in Minnesota were unable to attend. Other grand children and three great grandchildren who lived at great distances were not there. The best of humor prevailed. All enjoyed themselves. The order of the day, until dinner was announced, was social conversation, principally old time anecdotes and incidents, in which the family and their associates had been personally interested, - Thez-e were but few of Mrs, Carter's earlier friends and- neighbors present as most of'them "have gone to their reward beyond the river." Dinner was of course as it always is —one of the chief features of the exercise. Two of the large rooms were occupied by taules, and the ladies of the party outdid, themselves, in covering said table with- good things. All ate heartily dyspeptics included. - The writer is afflicted with the disease named, and the dinner gave him a severe attack of it, but he wishes it understood that it was not the quality of the viands that affected him, but the quantity. When a good dinner is set before him he must eat all he can if it does make him sick. You know how it is yourself Mr. Editor. Mrs. Carter is the widow of Ashford Carter, who was well known to all the older settlers of Logansport and vicinity. He established a tanyard in Logansport when it was a village. A few years later he became a pioneer farmer .of Clay township. On the bend of the Eel river just below where Adamsborough now is, on what he named Crawfish Bottom, he cleared and improved a fine farm, where he died in 1861. DYSPEPTIC.

Lancaster, the well- known Pan Handle engineer, died at his home, corner of Wabash avenue and Oak street, Sunday morning at 8:45, after a long and painful illness, the result of a complication of diseases, primarily due, it is said to the con. stant jarring motion of the engine. The deceased was in the prime of life, being but35-years of asre.' He was born in England. He began services with the Pan Handle company •in 1378, and made his last run on Christmas day. He leaves a wife and • three children to mourn their irreparable loss. Wm. Lancaster was one of the best known and most popular of the many employes of the Pan Handle in this city and his funeral which will be held to-day at the Broadway M. E. church at 2:30 o'clock will be .very largely attended. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers; of Uniform Rank K. P.; of Cass Council Order of Chosen Friends and of the Iron Hall and carried insurance in the several bodies aggregating $4,-100. The funeral will be under the auspices of the Knights of Pythias assisted by the other orders. Beit and Bnrjtcl£li. The Chief sat in his sanctum. The circling smoke which gathered gracefully about his head came from a half burned Wheeling stoga. Suddenly the door opened and Burleigh stood before him. "I have come," he said, "to thank you for your kindness. Once more you have dragged me from a deep and eventless obscurity and seated me upon a pinnacle of fame. No hero or heroine shall be more worthy of your regard, no vassal or 'vaseline shall be more yielding- in your hand." Good Louthain was moved to tears. "Go out into the hurley, Burleigh, and labor," he said. "When you want advice come to me and if in May you are not a Mayor it will be because I am no longer Chief. Go Burleigb, and square yourself with the Mafia first." The Vandalia management is preparing a new time .schedule f*r the T. H. & L. division, which contemplates putting on a fast train each way between Terre Haute and St. Joseph, Mich., hauling a parlor car. It is the general verdict among .locomotive engineers, who i'un night trains on the Indiana and Illinois roads, that Thursday night last was one of the worst nights they have evei experienced. Excessive darkness, high winds and heavy rains contributed to such a condition of things. For a few hours to make any speed seemed almost impossible. As the engineers express it, they were obliged to feel 1 their waj- along. . "Officials connected with the running of trains" remarked a railroad man the other day, "should be selected from men in the running department, and not from office and dry goods clerks. There is a train master on a certain road in this State who was previous to his promotion a clerk in the superintendent's office. He once deemed it necessary to 'jack up 1 an engineer for comine- in late. The engineer excused himself by .saying that he 'hung up' on a certain, hill caused by a heavy train and a 'bad rail." Anybody that ever railroaded three months knows that In railroad parlance a 'bad rail' is a slippery track caused by rain or frost. Now .what do you suppose this trainmaster did? He boarded the next passenger train, rode to the top of the hill and walked all the way down looking for what he conside-ed a broken rail. That is the sort of officials they have on some roads. A prominent Reading railroad official was talking about railroad affairs to the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the conversation turned to mascots. "I remember," said he, "when I was an engineer on the main line, many years ago,and of course you know we all have our little superstitions. Well, mine was this: While running over the high trestles of the Catawissa division, where you know, the train seems to be moving through mid air for several miles, and there is nothing but rock! and timber below, I was in the habit of watching for the appearance of an old man- whom, 1 noticed, always crossed the track'just before we came to the trestle at the same time every day, rain or shine, winter or summer. I came to look upon this old character, with his bent form and white hair, as a mascot for the safety of our passengers and our train, and I always breathed hard until I rounded the curve, which was just a few rods before the trestle, and easier when I saw him. He came to know the sound of my whistle and always waved his hand. "Well, one day he didn't appear as my engine approached the spot where he was accustomed to be and I was that scared I stopped the engine. Something told me all was not right, and I couldn't have driven that train on to save me until I had investigated. Sure enough I walked out on. the trestle with the conductor and fireman, and about 100 yards out we found a rail loosened and turned-to one side. A freight had •passed over an hour before and done the mischief. We went- on down the road and.the next day my old friend was on hand as usual. I stopped the train to speak to him,'and he told me he had been sick the day before. 1 am not given to foolishness, but I tell you I connect that man with good luck, for the day he died I was" pro-- moted and have go'ne up the ladder ever since."

Yesterday morning in the circuit court the trial of Charles T. ("Barney") Klein was placed . on trial, charged with the murder of John Gibbs in January. Judge Cox, of the Miami circuit court, the judge before . whom the Harvey murder case, was tried last term, is on the bench and the case will hardly be concluded this week. The defendant's interests are looked after by Dykeman, Wilson & Taber, and M. D. Pansier and Prosecutor Me- Greevy is assisted by MoConnell and Jen kin es. The morning was consumed in an attempt to s'ecure a jury. The regular pannel of sixteen and the spepial. venire of twenty men were soon exhausted and the judge issued an order for another venire of forty men. All who were examined .yesterday were found incompetent,to serve .as 1 jurors and the lawyers are in doubt that a jury can be secured from the forty additional narnes.'-' Bach side is entitled, to twenty-one' peremptlory challenges each and'the notoriety this case has gained throughout the'county- will make it extremely difficult to secure twelve unprejudiced qualified jurors. . The case will, be watched with considerable interest. Klein has almost entirely recovered from his -attack,-.of; rheumatism and sat a close spectator of the proceedings.•• Merit Wins.
