Everybody is familiar with the term "Uncle Sam" and comprehends its meaning-, but it is safe to say that very few know how it originated. During the revolutionary war Samuel Wilson was beef inspector at Troy, N. Y., and was very .popular with .the men in his company, and was called by them "Uncle Sam." The boxes of provisions where shipped to a contractor Darned Elbert Anderson, and market "E. A. U. S.'' It is said that a workman, being- asked what the initials meant, replied jokingly that he did not know unless they were for :Eloert : Anderson and "Uncle Sam." 1 '. The joke spread; and afterward, as tie story goes all packages marked "IT S" were said to be for Uncle Sam, and thus those letters came to stand .for "Uncle Sam" as the personification of the United States. Killed Himself. OTTU.MWA, la., April 80.—John Beeves, the well-known baseball player and last year's umpire in the Illinois- Iowa leagTie,.... Wednesday morning stepped behind^ the counter of the Baker house, wiere he was.employed as solicitor, and blew out his brains with a revolver. Domestic infelicity was the cause. Three hours after his death a letter came from his wife, saying-that the breach had been healed and she would live with him. again. Fire Damp Claims More Victims. LONDON, April 30.—A serious colliery accident is reported from Mun'ster, Germany. Fire damp caused an explosion in a coal mine at a time when it was 'filled with workers. Five men were killc-d, several seriously hurt, and twenty remain entombed by the falling debris, though it is said there is every hope of rescuing them alive. Ko Is Eligible. CHICAGO, April SO.— Corporation Counsel Miller gave to the mayor Wednesday a written opinion to the effect that Maj. McClaughry was eligible to the appointment of chief of police. During the afternoon Maj. McClaug-hiy called at the clerk's office and secured a blank bond which will be filled out before the council meets Monday evening, when his appointment will be announced. _ In -The Origin of Species" Darwin demonstrates that in the human, animal, and plant life \] btionger survive and the weaker perish.

The contest of Canton Loga.nsport on Wednesday evening was quite spirited and resulted in the awarding of the prize, to Chevalier Walter .; Sweinsger. This -was by .far the searpest contest yet held and we predict a sharper one for the Chevalier ' that carries it off one month from now. There' is a young woman in Columbus, Ind.,*to whoma'merchant of that :, place^offered 20 yards of silk for a I- dress if she would saw half a cord of • wood in front of his store.

The Mayor fined -him : -''more than, he-wan ted to pay- and he appealed', and in the superior court the jury acquitted him of the charge to which he had pleaded guilty in the Mayor's court. A chromo would have beed added if desired. . The reception tendered to Rev. and Mrs. H. J. Norris at the Broadway M. E. church Wednesday evening was a remarkable pleasant Affair and was very largely attended by the members of the congregation and friends of Mr. and Mrs. Norris. An excellent musi- .cal program was rendered in very acceptable style and several literary selections were also well received. The appearance of Canton Logansport on the scene in full uniform was an unexpected but pleasing 1 feature and the Chevaliers extended hearty welcome to their brother Norris and his estimable wife.,; Mr. Norris is an Odd Fellow, Knight of Pythias and Mason. j The reception was a peculiarly congenial affair and was a fitting introduction of Mr. and Mrs. Norris to the society of their church and the friends of the congregation. Killed by E.MPORIA, Kan., April'80.—At. 6:80 Wednesday morning- as ^ Redmond P. Dwyer, a young- farmer'in Tremont township, was with his brother in his feed lot. he was instantly killed by ligitning- from a perfectly, cloudless sky. The bolt struck him in the temple, passing down his leg, scorching the body. The brother was shocked but was unhurt. Rev. Phillips Brooks Elected Blxhop.
