A plan to deliver the occup»nts of the Grant county jail' was frustrated last week. James Draddy, a primer, who had a short time before succeeded in making the police of Logansport believe he Buffered from heart troubles when In truth be was under the Influence of an ovenvhelmlDg jag, was concerned In the affair, he being the man who was to pass tools In to the pris. oners, who were putting In their time pining for sweet liberty. He became intoxicated and gave the ' enap', away to the Morning Newa of that olty, on which paper he had held cases, and the sheriff waa also put on his guard. A. pugilist named Roberts, it ia .aid then undertook the outalde program, purchasing the fiaws in this olty. Roberts, however, was unfo.tunateand was soon with his oo- conaplrators on the Interior of the cal- abooae, on a charge of assault and battery. Tne matter was then en trusted to a young man named Ed. warda, who "peached" and turned the Instruments over to the sheriff. Emory Moss the colored man, well known hare, Is ia the Grant county jail, but ho was not in with the "delivery" gang.

Indianapolis News: Time was that anybody could get work on a railroad, and the personal habits of the em- ployes were not taken Into considera tlon, The superintendent would get drunk with the brakeman, and It was not an unusual thing for a passenger train to start out with a drunken crew. As there have been improvements in machinery and equipments BO has there been a change In the class of men who work for railroads. One does not hew of the "rough railroad man" so frequently referred to twenty years ago, and there are men in the business who can remember the time when a railroader was synonymous with a "bad" maa. He was a good deal of the stripe of the old time circus man. That class of men can not work for railroads now. The man in any position who uses liquor to excess is discharged, and on some roads if an employe i§ known to go into a ealoon he IB suspended, and for a certain number of such violations, he ia discharged. Nor can he be ••tough." He must dress neatiy.be cleanly, civil and polite. Trainman 'Harry May of the Rich mond division of the Pan Handle was in the city yesterday. •Vf. I.

Historically speaking the cup—in the ense of tea or coffee cup—is Jie youngest member of the European ceramic amily, and its form cann<3$be traced back to classic antiquity, says Home and Country- A well-known writer refers to the ancient Greek kyathos as the probable ancestor of our pr*sent ^Although the kyathos bad a single handle it was used as a pitcher and not to drink directly from. Even after the introduction of tea into Europe had become general—that is, during- the latter half of the seventeenth century—tea cups were scarce. Almost simultaneously coffee ffa^ed f J 00 'hold in Europe, having probably be*n introduced from Abyssinia, Asia Minor and Arabia. Still, apart from Constantinople, the first coffee cups m Europe date only as far back as 1645 in Venice, 1050 in Paris, 1052 in London and 1094 in Leipsic. Fromgjhe very first, however, the conventional oriental coffee cup, without stand or handle, was but little used, and in Germany not at all. On the other hand the Chinese tea cup was used not only for coffee and tea, but for chocolate as well. . Undoubtedly specimens of porcelain were introduced into Europe during the middle ages. Yet these were not imported in a very great quantity from China until after 151S. Even then they came first as articles of vcrtu, and it was not until later that they were used to drink from. The most prominent of these were cups. Many of tho specimens, however, found their way back to tho middle kingdom again. The penchant for collecting old porcelain is far more universal in China than with us, and a better price is paid The collection of Chinese porcelains, if it is-intended to be only of the genuine ktad, requires an immense amount of study and experience, for the Chinese are admirable imitators, and there are falsifications innumerable in the market.

As severe as the verdict is against the use of concoctions that give artificial coloring to the face it remains a fact, says an exchange, that tired women do resort to a few harmless antidotes against the facial evidences of fatigue. Touching up the lips faintly with rosaline is one method indulged in This ointment does not color them materially but it softens, lending a richness and flexibility that contact with the wind has driven away. Its use also prevents chapping, if one is going again into the air. Some women saturate the lips with cologne to bring the blood, but the trick is uuaclvisable. Alcohol scorches the tender skin. Color in the cheeks is provided lor Dy the hot water, but the eye is an aggra- vntin" feature when tired.

"You've done nothing to it, said Mr. Whistler. "No," replied Kos- setti, '.'but I've written a sonnet on the subject, if you would care to hear it. When tho recitation was over Mr. Whistler said: "Rossetti, take out the canvas and put the sonnet in the frame." . >- e w Telephone Company.

According to Yill.ilpan- dus, the "talents" of gold, silver and brass used in its construction were valued at the enormous sum of $0.870.822,000 The worth of the jewels is generally placed at a figure equally as high. The vessels of gold, according to Josephus, were valued at 1-10,000 talents, which, reduced to English money •is has been shown by Chapel's reduction tables), was equal to £575.200.203. The vessels of silver, according to the same authorities, were still more valu- ible, being set down as worth £(54'.',8-4-1 000. Priests' vestments and robes of singers, £2,010,000.
