To put up a box so that the paper would not be exposed to the weather and ruined, can be done at auch a small coat, and would be so much more satisfactory that we would be greatly pleased if our friends would do so. Tbe "Jades Grand Masquerade Carnival The long looked for carnival to take place ia tbe Royal Rink waa given last night under tbe anspiciee and management of tbe Muncie Jack Club. Without doubt it was the eociety event Of the season, the rink being crowded with spectators, most of whom were our most fashionable society people. Long before 9 o'clock, (the time of the grand march) every ioch of room in tbe building wasoccupted by spectators. Promptly at 8 oclock Prof. Harts full orchestra of Indianapolis,, appeared and began playing a march, and of all tbs beautiful. grand, gorgeous, and comical costumes that there appeared upon tbe door met tbe eyes of tbe au dience. It was a sight that one does not often have an opportunity of seeing, and it must necessarily bsje beemeen-tobe appreciated, Ia -the grand march there were forty beautifully masked couples. Several dances took place en-maeque, when at 10:30 it was announced that all would un maskque. This was the amusing part of the program. Each ooe had an idea who his or her partner was, yet' no one could be positive, consequently when the masks were taken off, some were greeted with smiling faces, while others plainly showed how completely they had been deceived. Tbe merriment continued until a late hour, everybody eijiying themselves, and left feeling assured that the Jacks bad done everything possible to make them feel at borne, and had given them a highly respectable and much enjoed entertainment. Jesse Nixon, of Wheeling, is iu -the city. Geo F. McCulloch is borne from New Yoik. S. R. McMeans, of New Castle, was here to-day. A. Branham, of Union City, was here last evening. J. B.

In February, 1802, this fond father was visited by a sorrowful bereavement. The executive mansion was turned Into a house of mourning Death had chosen a shining mark and the beloved Willie, the apple of his fathers eye, the brightest and most promising of his children, was torn from his embrace. The dreadful stroke well nigh broke the presidents heart,-. and -certainly an affliction more crushing never fell to the lot of man. In the lonely grave of the little one lay buried Mr. Lm coins fondest hopes and, Strong as be waa in the matter of self control, he gave way to an overmastering grief, which became at length serious menace to himself. Never waa there witnessed In an American household a scene of distress more touching than that in which the president nd Mrs. Lincoln mingled their tears over the coffin that Inclosed the lifeless form of tlieir belovel child A deep and settled despondency took possession of Mr- Lincoln, and when It is remembered that this calamity for such it surely was befel him at a critical period of the war, just when the resources of his mighty intellect were most In demand, it will b understood how his affliction became a matter of the gravest concern to the whole country, and especially to those who stood In close personal and official relations with him. Tbe measures taken by his friends to break the force of his great griefs and to restore him to something like his old time cheerfulness, seemed for a while unavailing. Ward H. Lamon. Jim rhk'i Shrewd Dodge. Years ago when the New York Central and Erie railroads were engaged In a desperate and destructive battle of cut rates, Jim Fisk played a shrewd dodge on Commodore Vanderbilt The freight rates from Chicago to New York city were so low tbat there was no profit in transportation. Fisk seized the golden opportunity to buy cattle; shipped the cattle over the commodore's road, and so blocked the commodores transportation facilities that the Central waa obliged to refuse all other freight. Fisk thru put Up the price of freight on the Erie, and was not only able to do a lucrative business while the Central was carrying cows at a loss, but he was also able to get his cattle to the market, rta the commodores line, at such low terms that he made a profit on every head. The Argonaut GLASS WORKS. The Hemingray Factory. Cincinnati, O., Jan. 24, 1888. Editors Tikes: This afternoon. In company with a friend, a correspondent of the Tikes made a visit to tbe Hemingray glass works which are soon to be removed to Muncie and in qbich your people are not a little interested, as it is by and through such enterprises that Muncie, thanks to her liberal gas supply, is to become a thriving eity The glass works-of the Hemingray Bros, in Coviugton, Ky, are located a short distance below tbe Covington approach to tbe suspension bridge, and tbe extensive buildings occupy a prominent position on tbe river front. In tbe bottle factory we find tbe men and boys actively engaged in making beer and mucilage bottles, insulators, etc. Mr. Robert Hemingray. ou learning tbat we were from Muncie, at once became interested iu giving us an insight into tbe operations of glass making. The werk of bottle making is doubtless familiar to many of sour readers. The furoace should be kept at a regular heat to do good work. One of tbe workmen toid 'us that they would do better work with natural gas than with coal, since, wiih the latter, sudden changes in tbe temperature of the furnaces occur which result in defective work. And while we watched him bottles were refected because oT flaws and thrown into tbe waste barrel. In tbe putty room we found large crucibles made of Missouri clay. Are proof clay, Ac., which are to be used iu tbe future to contain tbe molten glass. Tbe closed crucibles hayings small air vent are used id tbe plate glass work. In the furnace room, which is immense in its area, are laige furnaces that are, however, but two-tbirds the size of the one which they propose eiectmg in Muncie, since, as Mr. Hemingray remarked, tbe question of economy in fuel is no longer to be considered." He informed us that tbe Arm had close to 9100,000 invested in tbe molds alone. These are made of steel and of course their interior surface contains the die whose imprint produces the form upon the glass blown against it. Mauy of these dies are woik-dout at great expense, any departure from mathematical precision in its construction rendering it worthless. One of the interesting features of this establishment is tbe sand blast process by which upon glass globes Dd shades are produced the varied geometrical figures. In The decorating room lamp shades are decorated by workmen skilled In tbe use of tbe brush. Not among tbe least note, worthy of this firm's manufactures is their patent lamp which is turned out iu large quantities and for which they are having a great sale. Oil cans and fruit jars are manufactured in large quantities. Mr. Hemingray, though necessarily a verv busy man, gave us a very satisfactory insight into the labarynths of the immense establishment and remarked, on our thanking him for hia kindness, that we might return the favor by showing him around Muncie at some future time. Your city may not only congratulate itself tbat it has secured a most valuable eu'erprise in the Hemingray glass works, but also in the firm they will-fiud men whose courteous and unassuming manners, combined with an energetic and active attention to business, will commend them to ail good citizens of Muncie. H. A. C. FOR RENT! A desirable house, two squares from Court House on west Washington street, formerly occupied by Mr. L. R. Eisenbrand. En-quie at 345 W. Adams St. George Best moved to Muncie last week, that placed being more convenient for him to louk after tbe interest of the Standard Oil Company, of which be is a trusted and valuable agent.
