Real Estate For Sale orTrade "The freaks of a locomotive," said an engineer yesterday to a reporter for the Indianapolis Journal, are sometimes dificult to explain. Engfine No. 71 on the Louisville, New Albany and Chicago -road, for some weeks after coming out of the shops was run between Lafayette and New Albany, and by a half doz<jn different engineers, and without an exception they pronounced it a worthless piece of machinery. The master mechanic decided to give the engine a test on the first division between Indianapolis and Monon, and the engine is now considered one of the fastest and most reliable engines the company has, and whenever it is desired to haul the vestibule trains a mile a minute No, 71 will do it." Superintendant Darlington, of the Indianapolis division of the Pennsylvania lines, tells of a novel thing regarding a locomotive which, when- he came on the road, was running between Bradford and Columbus, Ohio. So many men had been killed on this engine, and such an unlucky piece of machinery was it that engineers and fireman were timid about having anything to do with it. Shortly after Mr, Darlington took hold the engine was sent to the shops for general repairs. and in a jocose way Mr. Darlington suggested that its number be changed. The master mechanic favored it, and it was changed, and since that time it has behaved, very handsomely and been perfectly exempt from accident. An official of the Vandalia thinks there is more trouble from the freaks of engineers than of engines, yet h.e says that there are engines which seemingly are always running into trouble until something singular comes up, and then the trouble ceases. A few years ago an engine was run by Mr. Sherburne, one of the best engineers on the road, and a very careful man, yet in four years it ran • over seven persens and killed them outright,lastly killing Engineer Sherburne. The engine was then taken into the shops, rebuilt, and has been running seven years, nearly, without injuring a person. On the St. Louis divisionjof the Big Four, engine 104, built at the cora- Barry nnd Fay, the Funny Men. Those highly successful delineators of refined Irish comedy, Barry and Fay, having made a phenomenal run of one hundred and seventy-five consecutive performances at the Park Theatre, New York City, last season, are now making a tour of the principal cities of the country,-and are announced to appear at the opera house next Monday evening. William Barray is peculiarly happy as a caricaturist of the sunny side of . Irish character. He makes up an irresistible comic figure and his stage face is itself a fortune. His genius is ^variously exemplified,-but one of the most remarkable things about him is his ability to extract fun from the relation which he establishes between his trousers legs and his boot legs. He is tbe only man who can make his clothes talk. Hugh Fay is a comedian oj a milder order and an admirable opposite to his droll partner, He is an actor and an artist, and as an exponent of the true Irish character, he has no equal. His comedy is of the quaint, quiat kind but when the two are on the stage "together, a general explosion is inevitable. 1: McKenna : a Flirtation" was written by Edgar Seldoa, and gives a satirical and funny caricature of -the would-be-lf-I-could element of American society and its Anglo-maniac tendencies. Barry and Fay represent a couple of very successful Irishmen who have mad<j considerable money, which has turned their heads. The piece abounds in genuine fun, and incidents are droll and follow so thick rnd fast, there are so many surprises, all of a humorous nature, that the audiences are kept in a continoug round of laughter from beginning to end. Incidental to the play, there will be singing and dancing by^a quartette of pretty young girls, which is said to add much to the neatness of the entertainment. went through a bridge, then was blown from the track "by a cyclone.

A curious freak of nature passed through the city yesterday via the Paa Handle and attracted a large crowd^atthe yards. It was a cow wbich in addition to all the natural requirements of her species, possessed an extra pair of legs growing out of her right shoulder, two extra nostrils, and a lump on her forehead said by scientific men to contain an additional set of brains. With the exception of these peculiarities she is furlly developed and in perfect health. She claims Texas as her native state, having been born near San Antonio about four years ago, and is of Jersey and Holstein extraction. She is the property of a Mr. William Fletcher, 'who intends to exhibit her at a museum in Chicago. A strange case is reported from Washington township, this county. Mr. J. S. Crockett owns a sow that on April 3d gare birth to five fully developed pigs, most of which, however, died shortly after. On April 16th she followed up her record by giving- birth to seven more, all alive and healthy. Here is a case for the scientists to explain. Rev. Dr. Birch and wife will depart for their new home at Kokomo today, their goods having been shipped yesterday. During Dr. Birch's pastorate in this city, he and his wife have made themselves felt in the community, and their memory will long- be cherished by their many warm friends here. As Dr. Birch is now Presiding Elder of this district he will have frequent opportunities to be heard again in the pulpit he occupied so lo»g and in |which he wrought so much good. A Painful Accident. Mrs. Marah, wifeof'Dr.W. H.Marsh, .the Baptist minister, met with a pain- .ful accident last evening. While returning 1 from a tea party, about eight o'clock, in company with her sister, an obstruction upon the sidewalk was encountered and both, ladies were thrown down. Mrs. Marsh fell upon her -right foot, breaking both bones just above the ankle. She was carried into Capt. -; Mull's, residence and Dr. Hatch was summoned who gave her proper medical attention. Later shi'e was taken to the residence on Seventh street.' ' f Notice.

Cliarltlog u»d Correction. The eighteenth national conference of Charities and Correction will be held at Indianapolis May 13-20. This conference from a small beginning has grown in influence and the number of its delegates, until now it is one of the most important of the national gatherings of our land. Although it has co legislative nor executive power, the influence it has exerted in the promotion of social reforms is incalculable. With no formal membership, and no revenue except from the sale of its printed proceedings, its business goes on from year to year with increasing promptness and efficiency. The object of the conference is to collect, compare, and diffuse information respecting every description of charitable, penal, and reformatory enterprises, both public and private. Its delegates are earnest and practical men and women, some actively concerned in such work, and others who, while occupying no official station, are interested as philanthropists and good citizens. Among them are members of boards of State charities, superintendents and trustees of benevolent institutions, directors and officers of charitable associations, wardens and directors of prisons and reformatories. They meet to learn from and to teach each other about new methods of work and better and more economical administration. Here the freest and most impartial discussions prevail. Here are brought the results of ex. periment, by which each may learn by the reports of the others' success or failure. Every one who belongs to any of the classes mentioned above is a member ex officio. and is most cordially invited to attend. Cliureli .Entertainment.

Del Cramplon in his paper, the White County Democrat, does not speak well of _Logansport Democrats. He says: "V. C. Hanawalt, a former Monticello boy, was one of the eight candidates for city treasurer before the recent Logansport Democratic convention. He received eleven votes and since then nineteen different delegates have told him that they voted for him. The eleven votes received by him were cast by other men, and 'Colt' is trying to figure out'what went with the. nineteen votes that have since been placed to his credit. He has about concluded to accept the disagreeable truth that there are at least nineteen liars, in Logansport. 1 ' DE. J.

Chase was appointed Chief Justice of the United States, many people believed that he had re- quished all hope of the Presidency. It was well known that he had aspired to the highest office in the gift of the people, and it was also well known that Mr. Lincoln had taken him into his Cabinet and then put him upon the Supreme Bench, rather as a xuatter of political expediency than as a matter of friendship. Consequently, the public impression upon the appointment of Mr. Chase to the Chief Justiceship, was that he had given up all Presidential hope if not all desire for that position. His real feelings were confided to but one person, namely his handsome,, brainy, intelligent, ambitious daughter, Kate Chase. No woman ever kept a secret better than Kate Chase kept her father's secret, as she labored diligently day and night to place nun in the White House. Although he had been a Republican since the foundation of that party, Chief Justice Chase began to look to the Democratic party for the nomination which he sought. His daughter, Kate Chase, carried on negotiations and correspondence .with the leaders of tJiat party, and so successful I, was she in pushing the claims and merits of her distinguished father that it was practically the unanimous •• opinion of the leaders of that party that Judga Chase should be nominated without opposition. It was the intention; however, in 1868, to give to Horatio Seymour a complimentary nomination which he would decline. It was arranged that on the second ballot Chase wasto-be nominated. The plan, was carried out, Seymour was nominated, and did'de- cline; then the name of Chasa was brought forward and;, received with enthusiastic applause that made: the welkin.ring. The last words spokeff by Mr. Seymour upoa the platform in de-; clining 'the nomination, were: "Your candidate I can not be." These i.words have since become historic, and iave been quoted a million of .times or more. His. speeoh was honest, sincere and strong, but full of emotion. .Unexpectedly to the'politicians, that speech nominated. Seymour ' in spite of himself., The enthusiasm for Chase died, down and tne:tic'ket was made Seymour and Blair, instead of Chase and'Seymour, as the .politicians, had intended. The defeat' of. her father's long and eagerly, cherished hopes fell, upon Kat«, Chase with overwhelming effect. She .was young- and strong, however, and recovered, but' the blow'of disappointment killed her father, for it brought about a paralytic stroke from which he. never recovered. : Although the disappointment almost broke Kate Chase's heart, she was outwardly calm, and it has been said that she appeared more lovely;'and .fascinating 1 at' tliattime than' ever before. ' : 'Thnt' disappointment.' thougjj wrecked her whole life and she'' W since then been, as good and. great and true to herself as she was to her father, and as she probably would, have been to all mankind- if she had' been successful A Safe Inve»tm»nt.
