Local Option Would Fetch Him. Franklin, Ind., Dec. 31.—"She town of Edinburg has been made defendant in a 5",000 damage suit, In .which Elijah Harris, a blacksmith, Is plaintiff.

LEFT HIS MONEY TO A GIRI, •nlcidn Who Would Enrich the Voting Woman Who Scorned Him. Fort Wayne, Ind., Dec. 31.— Last Saturday Albert Gierchi died at the St. Jo- •eph hospital from the effects of drink- Ing ammonia water, with suicidal intent For several months he tried to win the affections of Miss Emma Lawrence, but •he did not reciprocate, and discouraged his attentions. He persisted in calling at her residence, but each time was discouraged. Finally forbidden entrance to the house and despairing- of winning his suit, he resolved to commit suicide. Gierchi was a cisarmaker and followed his trade closely and kept up a benefit policy In the Cigarnmkers' union payable to himself. A few days since he changed the policy, making Miss Lawrence the beneficiary, and that the officers have noti- Cedher that she would receive the moti- «y in a few days. She indignantly re- tused to receive the money and she says •he will not touch it. He came here from Germany .six years ago, and ha.s no relations in this country, and the benefit society wlil probably keep the money, unless Miss Lawrence can be prevailed upon to accept it, which is doubtful.

RAILWAYS MAKE A GOOD SHOWING. Surprising Improvement in the Kocords of Insolvency ami Keceiverships. Chicago, Dec. 31.—The Railway Age makes the following statement of receiverships and foreclosures for 1S97: No year since 1SS7 has shown so few roads or so small a mileage confessing insolvency, while compared with the record fur any one of the five years immediately preceding 1S9T the list, of ne\v receiverships last year is surprisingly small in respect to the number of lines, mileage and capital involved. In 1S93 no less than seventy-four companies, with 2!),o-10 miles of road and $1.781.000.000 in bonds and stock defaulted in their obligations and were turned over to the control of the courts.

The Philosophy of Good .Present Giving: — New Y«=ar'» Calls Botter Wtali Than "A Happy New Vein'. A Touch of Sympathy. [Copyright, 3S97, by the Author.] S'ew Year's day is the oldesc holidnj thai: vfii know anythioig about. It been celebrated by the Jews, the Egyp tiaus, the Chinese and the ancient Romans in different -ways, of course, tra it h,is always been more or less a festa. occasion. The day, commemorating what was supposed to be the first day o the year, has varied as to date. Christ HKIS day, the Annunciation (March ~o) Bas!;er day and March 1 having beei observed at different timos. It was no until after the middle of the fourteeiitl century that Jan. 1 was universally ac cepted as the opening of the yeaj. Thr celebration of New Year's has foe^u. ob served by all religions from timB im memorial, long antedating history. A: a holiday it is thought to be at leas 5,000 to 10.000 years old. What firs gave rise to it is beyond knowledge, bu it is conjectured that it had its orijsh in superstition connected with the sens' of newness, which has appealed to tin mind in all ages as emblematic cf hope expectancy and desirableness. The custom, so common in this conn' try, of making good resolutions on 2vev> Year's day, only to break them later, i^ by no means peculiar to Americans. I is characteristic of the average weakness of mankind. All of its prefer to do whn' we want to rather than what we ought and we compromise with our consciences by declaring that we will reform at the beginning of the year, though we usuallv have no reason to believe that we shall, as if the mere declaration were a kind of virtue. Many men resolve to do better, to be better, regularly at the recurrence of every J«n. 1, nor do they appear to be in the least discouraged t;hac they have returned after a few weeks to their old ways, to their objectionable habits. They still keep up the assurnp tion of reforming, imagining that a promise to themselves is more likely to be kept if made on New Year's, notwithstanding their continuous dis- proval of the likelihood. This is sheer superstition, as are the ill luck of Friday and the propitiousness of Sunday. Jan. 1 is doubtless associated with a deal of superstition, even in the last quarter of the nineteenth century, which is far worse in, its effect rh:m any amount oi pleasure seeking. Fifty years ago it was the general custom in the United States, particularly in the west and south, to give presents (the old name for them is handsels) at New Year's to kindred, friends and even ordinary iicqnaiiitauces. The custom had come down from ancient times and is still preserved iu ninny j'larts of tho old world, but in the uevy it ha.- growu obsolete, because present inakiuf: here is carried to excess and has become a serious tax. - Its discontinuance i:; to be commended. All present making should be voluntary, not ia any manner binding, as it is apt to bo if regulated by fixed dates. ChrisSmas is an exception, but to give presents again ihe week following is excessive, wearisome, often inconvenient It wholly spoils rhe spirit of what should be a plea^mt surprise, a delicate attention, ;m unexpected courtesy. In no quarter of the globe is so ranch made of New Year's as in China. There its observation occupies scvoral duy.s, sometimes awholo week. It is tbo most popular and noisy of festivals, surpassing that of the Dragon Boats, the Feast of Lanterns, the Fishermen or uuy other public parade and national rejoicing The people are very fond oi' shows and processions, and on that special occasion they carry thousands of lanterns, burn fireworks, explode crackers, play all sorts of pranks and games in th>.narrow streets, beat gongs, shout aud sing in their high, shrill voices uati: they make of every sizable town a pea- feet pandemonium. They arc ordinarily so reserved and quiet, like oriental:generally, that New Year's impresse.- foreigners as if the entire populaiioi: had suddenly a:;d irredeemably genii mad. New Year's calls by men on their wo man friends continue to be made iu most of our cities, though they almos! entirely and suddenly ceased in th- metropolis some 1- years ago. TLK^ will not probably be revived in thi- generation at least. They oripiimirc there, so far as this country is c-oiuvn; ed, at the time of tho Dutch settlfuiom of the town, and yet New York was :h. first city to relinquish them. Old KuU'k erbockers were not, as many suppose the first to introduce the social tu»t-oi« importing it from Holland- It-has bi-ei. in existence for hundreds and hundred- of years and in lands that 'ive ccn.side: uncivilized. The smart set of New York, who firs: frowned down New Year's visits, refus ing to receive on that day. now enipha size their opposition by closing rher. town houses and going to their couum seats for a week or two. This has bo come the fashion. Although most of us feel when •»> are wished "a happy New Year" tha' it sounds a bit satirical we know thai it is polite, even if it means uorbius: And then as we wish those who wish i: to tis exactly the same thing we art- conscious of having discharged a courtesy Even if vce knew we were to be miserable we should relish kind wishes. > fond are we of deceiving ourselves Sci deceit is -what the mass of us live on. Wouldn't it be better for us instear. of wishing our friends "a happy New Year" to wish them "a happier 2iTew Year than the old one has been?" That •we might easily have, and as happiness in any siirict sense does not coine to the Iminan family it would seem sincere, less like an empty phrase and would convey a touch of sympathy. PAUL R. CLEVELAND. A ROSEIROOM. How a, Clever Toant Houuewife H»» Fwr- niihcd A Guestroom. A clever young housewife has just furnished a guestroom entirely -with "remnants," one might call them, yet the result is a cozy and attractive apartment. This room is papered in a deep creamy yellow, -with an unobtrusive light brown figure, the frieze having a touch of pink. The woodwork and floor are stained golden brown. The large floor rug was made by sewing lengths of ingrain carpet and fringing out the ends. This carpet has a small pattern in cream, pink and blue. The small blue "filler" rags in front of the mantel, bureau and washstand are also homemade. They were first hemmed; then the hem was cut and the threads A COZY ARRASGEMEST. were drawn out, making a full fringe four inches deep. This room, heated by a register, has neither fireplace nor mantelshelf, so the blank space has been turned into a very charming, cozy comer. Two wooden shelves across the chimney breast are supported at each end by a succession of smaller shelves and stained to match the rest of the woodwork. A bos divan with ainged top is fitted in the space be- sween the supports. Two similar divans are under the windows, and a .arge packing case, divided into four sections, serves as a dressing table in ;he angle by the window. The rest of ;he furniture consists of an iron bedstead painted oak color, an oak chiffonier, a washstand, a shaker rocker, a small table and two chairs. A piece of rich blue cretonne, thickly :owdered with half blown pink roses the size of a quarter, was picked up for }-y cents a yard. It made the spread tor the bed, covers for the divans and cushions and drapery for the dressing case and windows. The bedspread is ined with pink and has a deep flounce all around, just clearing the floor. The square pillows on the bed have white cambric slips, the frills tucked and edged with narrow lace. Above the bed ,s De Lougpre's yard of pink roses, ramed iu oak and gold. Many other charming rose studies adorn the walls, an especially dainty picture, an over- ;urned basket of pink roses, hanging on ;he chimney breast. A Dresden clock, plaster medallions arid vases are attruc- ively arranged on the upper mantel- shelf, a collection of pleasant books filing the lower. The sinall shelves hold a glow lamp,, cup and saucer, a small :hina biscuit jar and a brass kettle with Jcohol lamp. The divan, with itscusb- ons and 'A tabouret near by, supplied with desk pad, paper, ink and pen tray, ompletes a corner where one may read, write or sew at ease. The dressing case is very pretty and ffective. The cretonne is put on in full ilaits, a double ruche lined with pink ateen giving a finish to the top. Over it angs a long mirror, framed in oak and narrow gilt beading. Cretonne cur- ains lined with pink are looped back rom the glass and tied with big pink ows. These curtains over the glass are raped to form a round dome. A small oop was cut in half and the halves acked across another hoop. A piece of retonnewas then gathered to the hoop and drawn up over the frame and tied with a bow. The curtains were sewed o the hoop, and a ruche of cretonne ut around it to conceal the joinings nd the dome suspended over the dress- ng case from a large book. Three-quarter sash curtains of dotted white muslin hang at the windows, ith cretonne valances lined with pink acked above. The rose decoration is carried out all jrough the room. The washstand has toilet set adorned with roses, the white matting splasher has a bnuch of pink oses painted on it in oils, and rhe lades on the gas globes are pink silk.
