Notwithstanding all this, his fame as. a spiritual healer (?) has spread over the state to a remarkable extent. His latest and probably last victim was Mrs. Fox, wife of Joseph Fox, residing near Mexico, in Miami county. Some two years ago a cancerous tumor made its appearance on her left breast, and she applied to Beem for treatment, declaring that she wonld never consent to an operation. Doc then closed his eyes and after a short communion with the spirits declared his ability to cure her. Some time ago Fox and wife removed to the city and took rooms at Reem's sanitarium. As time run on the aid of the spirits were repeatedly invoked, but all to no purpose, for the of justice in his dealings with his feHowmen, as did Mr. Panabaker.

Tne latter declared that the woman would die, and after prescribing a a remedy to counteract the poison, departed. Mrs. Fox revived soon after, but on Saturday suffered a relapse and lay in a comatose state until 3 o'clock this morning when she died. The remains were remove to Kroeger & Strain's undertaking establishment, and upon being prepared for burial, were shipped today to Dennison Crossing, Miami county, near Mexico. As no death certificate had been furnished, Coroner Basjahn took charge of the case, which will be fully investigated by the next grand jury. One of Beem's absurd statements, made to Dr. Holloway while Mrs. Fox lay in an unconscious state, was to the effect that her condition was brought about by the spirits in ted to perform and discharge his obligations to the people. In his private life his character was without stain or reproach. His temperament was the happy blending of the Puritan without its austerity, with the warmer and more genial current of the Huguenot; and, while always firm, he was likewise always considerate, despising to take any unfair advantage, and simply requiring others to come to his moral standard. r He has passed away full of years, aoated at with the love of his family and the regard of his fellow-men, leaving to them the heritage of a clean and goodly life. _ M Horse Stealing.

A.t the late session of the county superintendents' association at Indianapolis, It was decided that while the compulsory education laws are crude, they had done much good. It was decided to urge the legislature to amend the compulsory law so as to include children sixteen years old. It Is the opinion of some that truancy officers have hurt the school system by acting too aggressively in an effort to cultivate their jobs, and that township trustees should be given the duties of truancy officers.
