Peru who died at Yokohama, Japan, . while in the service othis.country,, on the 10th day of October, 1890, were.brought to Peru for interment yesterday. An escort of United.States troops accompanied the remains, and.the services were conducted by Rev. S--C-. Dickey. An escort of leading citizens, and the Grand Army of the Republic was also furnished. Deceased was thirty-nine years of age, and entered the navy at the -age of nineteen. At the time of his death he was acting-commander of the Swatara, stationed in Japanese waters. Col. Dennis at Work. Col. Dennis, of Richmond, State Fish Commissioner, was in the city last night, en route home to which place be will depart this morning at 6 o'clock. The Colonel is quite properly elated over the success which attended his efforts this week in convicting a quartett of river robbers up in Lake county. For some time reports had come to the ears of Col. Dennis of men seining in the waters up there and he set a detective in the guise of an innocent looking book agent to work in that region, with the result of indicting Gus Durks, Peter Homer, Frank Gunyan and David Lewis on the charge of seining in the rivers contrary to the provisions of section 2 of the fish law. The men were tried and convicted in the circuit court at Crown Point this week and fined $50 each and costs. Over 2,000 feet of sein was also captured which is in the hands of the Sheriff as contraband. For possessing a sein in this State the owner is liable upon conviction thereof of a fine of §50 and imprisonment for any delirminate period; and each days possession of the sein constitutes a seperate offense. Col. Dennis says that he has heard of seins being used in this county and that he has his eye peeled for the offenders. Should they be caught they will not be dealt with lightly, for the grim old Colonel is firmly determined . to protect the fish of the State and with the State at his back will show no leniency to offenders. At Columbus recently he succeeded in convicting three men on the same charge as above. In line of protection of the fish Colonel Dennis is looking closely after the matter of fish ladders in all the dams in the State and has succeeded in compelling ladders to be put in all dams in the southern part of the State and in. nearly all in the northern part. In Cass county the matter of fish ladders has been strangely neglected and the Colonel is after the parties responsible for this condition of things. Trustee Jackson has been frequently notified by the Colonel to erect fish ladders in the dams here, but has always been deterred in his compliance by threats of an injunction on the part of the Uhls. Tired of his delay Colonel Dennis notified Mr. Jackson again the other day to put in these ladders and if the mandate was not obeyed before the first of June he would commence suit on the Trustee's board for failure to do his duty. He also gave Trustee Nichodemus of Washington township similar notice to put in ladders in the Hamilton dam and as the Hamiltons have heretofore retarded this action the Colonel is simply putting a chip on his shoulder for the Uhls and the Hamiltons to knock off, but a.s the State is at the back of the old fish commissioner the contest would be short. It has not been much more than a year ago that the Colonel in this circuit court obtained a mandate compelling a trustee in White county to erect fish ladders in the dams at Monticello. While here Colonel Dennis remarked on the feasibility of stocking Lake Cicott with bass and wondered why some of the people around that beau- tif nl sheet of spring water had not long ago done sc. Lake Cicott is an ideal bass lake, and with a slight effort at this season of the year the lake could be stocked in such a man ner that in a year or two it would swarm with bass. It is suggested thatCapt. Brophy, Major McFaden, Lew Rodgers, or jome one equally interested, take immediate steps to stock the beautiful little lake. LAY ASIDE YOUR HEAVY OVERCOAT.

Death of Alex. Scott. Delphi Times: Alexander Scott, an old and much respected citizen of Rock Creek township, died at his home near Woodville at an early hour Saturday moi-ning. The deceased was born in Juniatta county, Pennsylvania in 1829, and moved to this county with his parents in 1851, where he has since resided. He was the oldest of a family of thirteen, of which only four survive—John, and William Scott, of near Burrows, Mrs. T. F. Dixon, of Madison tewnship, and Mrs. Alex. Hardy,'of Logansport. He was buried at the Woodville cemetery on Monday, Rev. Scott, of Logansport, officiating. The deceased was a man held in high regard by all who knew him. The Tobacco license Removed. That part of the McKinley bill which removes the tax on tobacco went into effect ye&terday. All licenses to retail tobacco expired Thursday, and no more will be need- .ed. Beginning with yesterday, any person who'desires may sell tobacco without let or hindrance. Itinerant peddlers of tobacco will be required to give bond that they will sell only from original packages, although they will not be required to. pay tax. If ever spring dress goods were sold cheap in this city, the present, low scale.of "prices |adopted lately at the Bee Hive, will tripple and quadruple the sales at this establishment. Three Kinds of People! There are three kinds of people who are not customers of.McCaffrey's, and each kind has a different reason for it. These probably are the reasons. Don't Believe It Some may figure that as every dealer advertises the lowest prices and every dealer cannot have them, all misrepresent themselves. We publish our prices, though we hand you a sheet every fortnight. If we are not correct,, you can prove it. If "we are, you most believe us. Think Something is Wrong. There are those who know that are prices are lowest' but^suspect that the quality is lacking. No! that isn't where we cut-for we guarantee our qualities. We save by buying in large qualities, and buyino- for cash—by selling in large: quantities and selling for cash, we save you nearly a third by that. We do not need to scrimp on quality.) . ; Don't Think About it. There are those who do not think ahoutsit, yet some of them work for days, to earn what each month they might save if they only stopped to think about it. "'".'" TO WHICH DO YOU BELONG? i M. McCaffery & Co.
