The city of Hammond is a rival of Logansport In the attempt to secure toe location of the W. B. Con key rlntlng establishment. Tbe Conkey oropaoy require that certain condi- ons be ^implied with before it will gree to change location. To com- ly with the conditions, the leading itizens of Hammond have formed a and and improvement company by icb means they hope the sum re- uired may be obtained. It may be said in this connection hat a money consideration alone will not induce tbe Conkey compp.ny o locate a,t Hammond. Mr. Conkey will personally visit the cities de- irlng tbe location of the concern efore he decides: at welch point he will locate. He will visit Logansport ome time during this month to view what we have to offer in the way of ailway facilities and other advan- ages. He will consider all t^ese matters before determining the point at, which he will locate. If he looks with favor upon Logansport, then our people, will know what to do. The plan of the Hammond people s to form a stock company with e apital of 1100,000, The stock will ie divided in 1,000 shares of IHOO ach.

A Home Entertainment. Editors Pharos:—Through strate- I obtained admission, on last Monday evening, to a social event at the home of Mrs. Oyter, 730 North street. These occurrences are lor [the sole pleasure and entertainment of the household. On being ushered into the parlor, the first thing that met our gaze was an immense bill pinned to a curtain, announcing a minstrel performance. This, however, did not mention the masquerade which followed. The minstrels were attired in entirely new and unique costumes, made by Craig, the tailor. The jokes, certainly original, applied directly to each one in the audience. Tbe artists in this parts were: -iambo, otherwise known as T. S. Kerns, his son, Zeke, '(Gladys Kerns) and his little son, Rascus, known as Bob Geary. Their make-up was unimpeachable. The jigs and clogs afforded by Sambo and his son, Zeke, were rich, the skill of Rastus with the tambourine and Sambo with the bones showed they were not ama-. teurs. Upon the conclusion of fthis the rest of the family retired to prepare EI masquerade. Before we were well aware of it line room was ' again filled, this time with kings robed in white, so closely resembling each other that the par- ,icipants did not recognize each other. A grotesque danca followed, music being furnished by Mr. Walker, pianist, and son Will, violinist. The regular routine of blindfold and progressive spelling formed tbe finale. After witnessing tils we are only the more convinced of the truth Can TH R TAILOR] Suit You in3|Style and Prices. 2iO 00 1 *> * ™ 1? "0 » °° ' Official! facsimile of Medal Awarded DR.
