State Supreme Court Decides a Suit Relating to a Police - Commission rKUMERATHOT OF CEI3US. Makes Void tbe Whole BaHlness, Jnclmllnc the Governor's Appointment*— Sane Man Declared Insane, But Later the Wroiic Rl c ht*d — Grain Exchange Failure at Richmond— NoChildren Burned at TTeddo —Divorce Itecord of the State. Indianapolis. Jan. ~. — The supreme court yesterday reversed the judgment In the suit brought by the city of Huntington against Simon T. Cast and three others, to enjoin the latter from acting as a board of metropolitan police, to •which position they had been appointed by the governor, under the law passed by the last legislature providing for the appointment of such boards in cities havlnjr a population of 10,000 inhabitants. The complaint charged that Hunting-ton has less than that number of inhabitants, but that Cast, who was mayor of the city, took a pretended census, In which he included persons Jiving outside the corporate limits of the city, and refused to report the census "to the city council or to file it in the city clerk's office, but burned the sheets of paper on which the enumeration was made. Census Won J>"o CeiiHUs at All. And that he reported the result of his census to the governor, showing the city of Hunting-ton to contain more than 10,000 inhabitants, though it really contained less, and thereby secured the appointment of the police board. In an opinion prepared by Chief Justice Howard the court holds that such a census as that described In the complaint is no census at all, saying that the census to be taken by the mayor under the statute was to be an official enrollment of the people in the city, which enrollment would be a public document, to be preserved In the archives of the city, where it might be subject to the Inspection of all those Interested; and must contain not only the sum total, but an official list oC the names "of all the inhabitants. Not Kntltled to the Offices. The court says that no question as to the right of the governor to make the appointment is presented by the case, since he acted, and rightfully so, under the statement as to population, certified to him by the mayor. But that if the mayor's certificate was not ba?ed on a legal census, as charged, then the appointment of the appellees wag void. It is also held that the appellees could be enjoined from taking possession of the offices, to which they were not entitled. The case is sent back for further proceedings _by__the_ci'rcuit court. SASE MAN ..DECLARED INSANE. Judge Mattlnon Makes a Rule to Prevent Such Thins* Happening. Evansville, Ind., Jan. 7.— In the circuit court here Judge Mattison has issued an order that hereafter no in- •aiuty Inquest shall be held by any commission without the court having first investigated the case. This action of the court was made necessary by the following unusual happening: About two weeks :igo Louis J. Waldschmidt, n young man, came to the city from the country, where he had •worked, to visit his brother-in-law. William Nichtern, a member of the fire department. The young man went on a spree, was arrested, fined for drunkenness, a.nd while In the lock-up made an attempt at suicide. Insanity proceedings were then instituted, and the youns man was declared to be of unsound mind. He then instituted habeas corpus proceedings and asserted that his brother- in-law and sister had, for selfish motives, caused him to be declared in- aane. Judge Mattison heard the case. Nichtern swore that it was his wife, Waldsctimidt's sister, who had signed the affidavit on the strength of which the inquest was held. There was plenty of testimony to prove the young man's sanity. He hlmsolf stated that Nichtern had caused him to give up his place in the country and come to the city, as he, Nichtern. would assist him In procuring a position on the flre department. The verdict of the insanity commission was declared null and void. FAILtKK 0V A GRAIN EXCHANGE. Richmond Concern Temporarily Closed for Want of Cash. Richmond, Ind.. Jan. 7.— Some excitement was causod in business circles here yesterday over the temporary closing of the Richmond Grain Exchange, which Is an agency of O'Dell & Co., 22 Carey building. Cincinnati. The exc'hanse has beer, doing a big business, and included a number of business men among Us patrons. \V. TJ. Hibberd, of this city, is local manager.

Jan. 7.—The Indiana bureau of statistics, for the first time In the history of the state, has compiled accurate information in reference to ihi: divorce business of the state courts. A bulletin just issued shov.-s that within the last year there were 2:;,a90 marriages in the state ajid 3,080 divorces, or one divorce for every ten mrriagTS.

The children went immediately home, where they were finally found by their frightened parents. Window Glass Factories to Resume.

There is more or less of good hunting throughout the "Tell," between the coast range and the sea, but the cream of it is to be found in the province of Coestandae, not far from the great desert and among the foothills of the Aures mountains. In this province resides a mixed race of people, with the blood of ancient Byzantines, .Romans and Vandals in their veins and boasting the most stalwart meu and the handsomest women in all Africa, perhaps in the world. While even the Bedouins, those fierce sons of the desert, have been subdued by the French and are now governed by cadis appointed by the conquerors, these north African Vandals have maintained saptaui from his reverie. *nd he joined in. "Oui, vive la veuve!" We primed his glass anew, and he begaa his tale of adventure: "I; was about 15 years ago.

Why she favored me was not clear to me then because my countrymen were not liked at that time, and >esiaes she had been sought in marriage y some of the richest sheiks and cadis f her people. Still, she appeared to ova me in a savage, uncontrollable ashion, and the greater portion of rny jay was spent in purchasing for her hoise gewgaws and golden ornaments he women of her tribe are so inordinately fond of.

Coming dowu from Constantiue, that '! famous city of the early Cbristiau bishops of Africa, four cf us, all Americans, dropped off at Guelma, once the stamping ground of Gerard tho bion Killer, Hardly 40 years have elapsed since this intrepid Frenchman, Cecils Jules Basile Gerard, au officer of the Algerian army of occupation, slev.-, single handed, scores of lions in this very district. The king of boasts even now occasionally ranges the hills and ravages the herds and flocks of this section. Tie is seen just often enough to give a spice of adventure to the pursuit of smaller game and to send a nervous chill up aud down one's spine when he hears ar unusual rumpus in the woods. And this brings me around to my story We had put in a good day's shooting aud were gathered at the little inn, halt cafe and half foudouk, comparing notes and awaiting impatiently the coming of our dinner. TUB proprietor of this "hotel de J'oasis" had once lived in New Orleans aud was more than de lighted to eutertaia his erstwhile eouu trymen who had come to shoot far from the laud he loved so well and where he had spent the days of his rollicking youth, aud so he served us with th best he had. It was with the consciousness taa we had in prospective a dinner which could not be duplicated between Goel ma and Paris and with a most bouiiti ful supply of crude material in reserv that we sent for the commander of civ irregular spahis stationed at this point And that he appreciated fully the cour tesy and the dinner we discovered long before the cloth was removed aud th cigars aud co*?Re bvonghl in. How coul he serve us mos: acceptably, he asked Why, we answered, by telling us story, of course, some tale of adventure of s'kirmish with Bedouins, moonligh meetings with African lions or some thing of that sort. We had often hear that tbe life of a spahis commander was full of adventure and trusted his had been no exception. "No, messieurs," he replied thought- fnlly, even sadly, "I have not been spared adventure. : Tis true I have interrupted many a nizzia, have chanced upon some few lioias. Indeed 1 have met the iion of Gueima." I After i-iiis brief siaceinent, made in a low tone, as if communing with himself, the captain of the spahis leaned his head upon one baud and remained for a space lost in reverie. We then noticed, showing through the close cropped hair of his head, a long, semiluuar scar, which seemed to glow with the intensity of his emotions, and at sight of it we all clutched at the idea that in some manner this reminder of a terrible wound was connected with our friend's experience with the lions. None of us, however, dared ask the question that might elicit a solution of the mystery, bat we had hopes, for. though this veteran of many wars was by nature discreet :and reticent, yet our •wines were the very best to be had in Algiers, and we did not spare any efforts to have him drink them. Under ordinary circumstances you couldn't have drawn a story out of him with a corkscrew, but this New Year's dinner •was not an ordimiry occasion, and the champagne that followed the last portion of woodcock on toast was the finest the Widow Clicquot ever sent out from bereaves. "Long live the widow!" we all ejaculated with fervor, which awoke oar of girded my saber about me, loosened my revolvers in my belt and crept; toward 'Che rock behind which my spahl md been crouching. The man followed me tremblingly and unwillingly, poor fellow, but bis companion luckily ran the other way. I had nearly reached the rock when, suddenly leaping out of the gloom beyond, came lie form of tbe beast we were hunting and landed directly in front of me. .Raising his enormous head, he emitted a roar that seemed to split the I'was for the moment transfixed, b« my spaln began to crawl back on the trail. 1 quickly recovered myself, however, and for tho life of me, though 1 knew my lifo v:us at stake, I could not resist taking a shot at tho terrible beast towering above me there, his nose m the air To tell the truth, thero was nothing elso to do, as running away would he us dangerous as lying still lor the lion cun overtake at running anything but tlio swiftest stallion.

The poor wretch cried out in smothered tones for help, and 1 had not tho heart to run away and leave him there without ac least an attempt at rescue. So I. crept forward, intending to press tho carbine against the 1'iou's heart and kill him on the spot. 1 reached his side and thrust out the weapon, but as 1 fired the rag ing beast reached out a paw ancl swept it across my head, tearing the scalp away and leaving a flap of it hanging over my forehead- 1 was blinded by the streaming bliooc and became unconscious before I could of the hunting season was near, ihristmas week I prepared to and oil have a foray in the fields. My mistress observed my preparations without comment, but when finally, just as 1 was ready to be off, I asked her what I should bring back from the hunt worthy of her acceptance she brightened up and showed enuine interest in the affair. 'There is one thing 1 desire of all things on earth," she said, speaking slowly and steadily, "but it is something you dare not attempt." 'Dare not?" I asked, with a show of indignation. "Have I ever shown fear of danger since you knew me? But why 'dare' not? What is there to fear?" _ She shrugged her shoulders, smiled an inscrutable smile, and turning away her head so that I could not look into her eyes she said, "I know—you have proved to ine—that you fear not man, but what I desire is guarded by one whom all men fear." "Name itl" I cried. "Yonshall have it, though fiends aud devils guarded it, my beloved!" She wound her bare, round arms about my neck and whispered in my ear, "Bring me, then, tho skin of the black lion of Guelma. " Behind that ridge, my friends—you can see it without leaving your seats—is a broad plateau known as the Lions' drag my man from his perilous position- When 1 regained my senses, it was to find the surviving spahi by my side and the forest illumined by tbe rising eun. The lion, he told me, though probably wounded unto death, bad dragged his comrade away into the wood, whither he had not dared to follow him. \fter he had placed, my scalp in po sitiou and bandaged it, the flow of blood being already stanched, 1 insisted upon following up the trail, and, as 1 ex pected, we foxmd the lion and his vie tim just within the forest verge, both dead, the man mutilated beyond all rec oanition. Following my directions, mj spahi stripped the lion of his skin anc placed it across the horse which had borne our dead comrade to the fata spot. 1 sent a detachment to bury th soldier later, but hastened with my tro phy to the fort, where my wound wa soon dressed, and the skin became th PIMPLY FACES Pimples, blotchce, blackheads, red, ronjth.olly, muuiy rtrin, itc.him;, «aly scalp. dry, Ihln. »»* railing halt, aud baby blcmiabe* pMrented br Cr-ricuKA SOAP, tho moel effective »kin purify- Ijff and beautifying wap in the -world, u -well »* pur\?£taa<i «weetest foru>UcX,fc (uticura 1. -MI throurtmi! tli» -Mid. rorr«« I), t C.

There roamed the kings of the plain and the forest, and conspicuous of them all was the great black lion of Guelma. 1 had of ten heard of him. His fame was widespread, for he had killed more than a score of Arabs within the twelvemonth past. There was something in her manner that piqued me, bun before I unwound her arms from about my neck 1 pressed a fervent kiss upon her lips and then said: "Very well. Yon shall have what you desire. Two days hence at this hour I shall bring it to you. " She remained silent, but looked, ac me incredulously, and this vesed me so that I strode away without another word. Within the hour I was on my way across the plain with two trusty spahis attendant and mounted upon a white Arabian noted for his fleetness, It was a moonlit night, but cloudy. Along, about 3 ia the morning one of my men, who was watching, stretched on the slope of a rock, his long gun pointed toward the forest beyond. thought he saw a great form creeping through the underbrush and heard soft though heavy footsteps. He drew back and crept to the spot where I was sleeping, my head on my saddle, and touched ine with the bnct of his gun, 1 was awake and erect in an instant. "Master. '' he whispered, "the lion — he comes!" Hearing nothing, I was about to chide center of a wondering throng of ver. grateful Arabs. The French commander hid his fac< in his hands. When he looked up, ther was in his eyes an expression of hate The crescentic scar was crimson. "No." be replied to our eager, ques tioning looks, "Fatima did not get the skin of the black lion of Gnekna.' "Why did she not get them? Oh, she had eloped with Abdul Said!" INDIRECT FERTILIZATION. Which Bender* Available the Natural Supply of Existing Plant Food. In spice of all that has beeti said and written about direct and indirect fertilization there still exists a surprising amount of ignorance. The work of the experiment stations and prominent agriculturists have brought out the facts in this line so plainly that it is a comparatively simple matter 'or any farmer to understand this subject without any trouble. The subject is treated as follows in The Progressive South: By direct fertilization is meant the application of certain fertilizer materials which in themselves furnish needed nourishment to the growing crop. The plant foods in whish most soils are deficient and which it is customary to apply in the form of commercial fertilizers are phosphoric acid, potash and nitrogen. Every farmer ought to get familiar with these terms and to learn from what sources they are derived and how they should be applied to the best advantage. It is true that the average soil will contain a certain amount of phosphoric acid, nitrogen and potash respectively, but it frequently happens that these ingredients are not in a condition to be taken up at once by the growing crops, and hence it pays to put them on in the form of fertilizers. By indirect fertilization is meant the application of certain materials to the soil, like salt, lime or plaster, which in themselves do not furnish any of the three essential ingredients mentioned, but by their stimulating action on the soil re'nder available some of the natural supply of plant food existing there. It will be readily seen, of course, that their action is indirect; hence the term "indirect fertilizing." Probably on no crop has this indirect fertilizing been more extensively practiced than on clover. Many have noticed the effect of a dose of plaster upon clover. The truth of the matter is, that tbe plaster in itself did not serve as plant food for the clover, bu;; released. some plaEt food in the soil, notably potash, which the clover at once assimilated to good advantage. It was also experienced by many of tbe game farmers that in time it became difficult to get a catch of clover on these lands. -The cause of this was that the Mrs. James O'Donnell and SOB fobn have returned from a brief Tlslt with relatives at Anderson.
