F. SwatTord, whom he found alone, remarking to him, in a matter-of-fact way: "Doctor I have come to kill you. I hate to do It, but 1 must." Dr. Swafford realized the sit- nation by the glitter In the man's eyes, and springing Tor a poker, he brandished It over Meyer's head, exclaiming: "The first move, and I'll kill you." Meyer faced Swsifford for a moment, then turned and walked out, and going Immediately to Dr. Stunkard's office, he .Informed him thai: he, with other phy.si- clana, were making electric machines which were killing off people, and for that reason he must die. J)> threatened Him with .Lightning. Dr. Stunkard showed nerve, and after .much expostulation Meyer was induced to leave. Then lie turned uo at Dr. Bell's office, and Bell quickly dropped to the situation, and told Meyer that JM office was filled with electrical devices, and that he (Meyer) could not "move so quickly but what the doctor t:ould touch a button and launch him ; Into eternity, .Meyer evidently wanted «, ehow for hi£ life and skipped out. JBy that time the police authorities gave • him attention, and found him to be armud with a revolver and a large Jknlfe, and possessed wltn the hallucination that he musit kill the physicians named because they were depopulating the city with their electrical devices. Meyer has been returned to the Central Indiana hospital, __ DIDN'T GIVE THE FOX A SHOW. In Which tli.u Populace Penned the Fox in .11 Bljf Field. '" Hagerstown, Iml., Jan. 11.— Two full- grown foxes were captured near this place and set at liberty in a large field •which was surrounded by men and boys and some few women who had turned out to see the "sport." The animals were released one at a time ' and when the first one emerged from the box it seemed bewildered by the shouting on all sides and hesitated before It ran off, but tha sudden rush toward it of some hounds brought from Richmond for the occasion caused It to set off at full speed. The field was nearly covered with melting ice, which wes very smooth, and the water had gathered into thousands of shallow •pools. Across the field of Ice nnd water •^TEe fox ran with incredible speed, closely followed by 'the pack of yelping hounds. The fox seemed unconscious of any foe but the dogs in the rear v and when It approached near to the line of men In front It paused and appeared to be bewildered, but Instantly started oft * to circle round the field. It drew away from the (Jogs very swiftly and time and time again attempted to break through the line of men. but was always turned back. Its bushy tail by trailing through the pools of water soon grew heavy and Impeded its speed and lessened its endurance. But Its courage did not flag and for more than an hour It kept up the unequal contest, which was ended by a great hound pressing ahead and seizing the fox by the flank. It was killed by the dogs. The second fox was caught and killed In a short time. _ THIS TOWN IS: GROWING WINGS. Hewn will Be That It Ha* Taken Flight for Fiinullse. Kokomo, Ind..

T., Jan. 11.—The United States custom officers stationed at both bridges have been notified to ,eize anything that looked like seal- kin. Nearly all on the Canadian side were notified to leave thdrsacks. gloves and caps there if they did not want hem confiscated. The situation at Niagara Falls is probably different Yom that at any other point on the •rentier. Both sides of the river are hickly settled and the Canadian and American population go back and forth daily. On the'Canadian side, back of the high bluffs, a number of wealthy fami- ies have country seats and a great many of the women In these families as well as Canadian women who wear sealskin coats, pass over the river to the American side dally while out driv- ng and making' calls. The sealskin garments taken from their wearers are turned into the appraisers' office at the custom house, where the owner, after filing application, must wait until notice has been sent to the secretary of :he treasury for a decision in the matter. _^__ Indications of a Murder.

This Method of Saving Helps to Enrich the People. How the People are Saving More Money Than in Any Other Way. A Way to Have What is Seeded aud let SSTC Enormous Sums. The jrneat millionaire, Rothschild, said: "To save money Is toe secret; of riches." Then; are few larger expenses lo the household than doctor's fees, together with the cost of filling prescriptions. Hundreds of millions of dollars are thus spent annually. It is evident, therefore, If this vast expense can be stopped, It will result, in an enormous saving to the people Community is becoming keenly alHe to this fact, since the people are rapidly learning the great truth that Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy Is fast taking the place; of physicians and their prescriptions: In households everywhere, and that this really wonderful medicine will! cure in cases where even physlelansi fail. People are waking to the sure and indisputable fact tbat a few bottles of Dr. Greene's Nervura will do more good in the average case than a, bundred dollars spent in physician'si fees and prescriptions- Mr. L. W. Paul, 7 Market St., Somersworth, N. H., says:— "I first took Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy because I elt that my blood was in a poor tate and needed cleansing: besides, I was troubled with shooting pains ,hrough my chest. The pains at- ected me badly in walking, and at imes would almost cut my breath ofl ! had read the lectures of Dr.Greene, and felt that he was a well-read poy- iclan and competent to prepare a medicine capable of beaeiting the yatem; then again, I knew that influential people were using the Ner- mra and speaking very highly of it, BO I determined to try it. I only used one bottle of Dr. Greene's Ner- vura blood and nerve remedy and it cured me. I have not felt the need of medicine since the first bottle." Yo« can be cured by Dr. Greene's Nervura blood and nerve remedy at the trifling expense of a few dollars, and in this way perhaps save hundreds for your family. ODD FELLOWS. MIGHTY GA FISH. Thi» Monslor at tb» Orinoco Wfll E»t »n Ox *f: a Me»L An Inhabitant of the Orinoco river, of which little is known beyond the shores of the waters in wMch it lives, is that strange mail-clad fish called the ga. or armadi'.lb fish. It grows from five to eight feet long and is of extraordinary thickness in proportion to its length. Its body is protected by armor similar to that of the armadillo and its head terminates in a triangular peak, from twelve to twenty inches long, and eight to fourteen inches broad at the base, which, when opened, displays a series of cross- ridges above and below, sharpened and as hard as teeth. This fish will attack anything that comes within its reach—horse, ox, jaguar, or man, seizing its prey with its beak and taking out, in a clean, triangular piece, as large a mouthful of. flesh and bone as it is able to compass at a bite. It is rare that any creature once seized by the ga escapes it, being usually killed or crippled by the first bite. The ga is seldom taken, for its armor protects it from the natives' spears, and when hooked it dives, head foremost into the mud of the river bottom, from which it is almost impossible to dislodge it. "The only gs. that ever I had. a chance to examine was found in a dried up pool on shore, where it had been stranded after an inundation," said Dr. A. H. Ellis, recently arrived in New York, after several years' residence in Venezuela. He was telling a group of friends about the fish and reptiles of the Orinoco. He continued: "I hooked a ga once, but failed to land it. I was In charge of the cattle steamer Coratel on the Orinoco, and we were at anchor at Imataca Island, off the mouth of the Rio Toro. I saw an ox, that had waded into the water keep his footing, and tten rush out of the water, with naif his brisket bitten away. " 'That's the work of a ga, sir, salo my Scotch engineer, who had been on the river for ten years. 'Now that he's got around to the cattle's drinking place you'll see more of that wort if we stay here.' " 'Is there no way to catch him?' I asked. Will he bite at a hook?' " 'Certainly, sir, if you bait it with anything that's eatable. But that's ali there is to it, A cable and steam- winch couldn't get a ga up from the bottom.' " 'We'll see,' I said. 'Let's make a hook first that will hold.' "We went down into the engin« room, found a pinch bar two'and a half feet long, and forged it into a look with a strong barb and a ring at the end of the shank. To this we fastened a new three-quarter inch rope, and, baiting the hook with a young vid, took k out in a boat and dropped ,t into the water near where we had seen the ox attacked; then we rowed back to the steamer, where the other erid of the rope was belayed. We kept feeling of the rope, which presently grew taut, straining hard on the sclaying pin. The ga had seized the 3siit. The engineer and I, with two native sailors, tried to haul the fish in hand over hand, but we might as well lave tried to pull a tree up by the roots for all the line we gained. Then we passed the rope round the capstan, and set it going. The line seemed almost ready to part, but at last some±in£; gave way below and it slackened. We pulled it in and there was our hook straightened out like a bar, while, fast to tiie barb, were two of the bony ridges from the ga's jaw. The fish evidently had seized the hook and could not disgorge it. but tho strain that tore the hook from its jaw failed to •tart the ga from the bottom." UNITED WORKMEN. A Faithful Laborer In the Pennsylvania Jurisdiction—BoucU Shovinc*. Pennsylvania jurisdiction is specially intcriwtiiis to the order as being the birthplace of the A. O. U. W. It is also noted as huvins had the same grand recorder for 22 consi-ciitive years. Joseph M. McXair of Alleshany City, who was re-elected for the twenty-second time as graod recorder of the grand lod^e at its List session, is the faithful and efficient officer who has Membership Clnt>« as Aids to Lodges. Triple Link Notoi. The formation of membership clubs is ex nu>re value to lodges than is generally supposed. By this menns a friendly rivalry is created between two sets of members, which, whik^it docs not always lead to the results »ined at, yet invariably does accomplish the bringing in of some petitions for initiation. Another result often gained is an increased attendance and a consequent greater interest in the work of the lodge. In some cases these membership clubs hnvo swelled the membership of organizations iunuzingly. Palestine encampment of Lynn enjoys the reputation of conferring tbe patriarchal degree in a manner that is unsurpassed in Massachusetts. Samuel P. Morris, secretary of Spring Garden lodge, Philadelphia, has been a member of the order of Odd Fellows for 55 years, and is now serving his fifty-second year as secretary of his lodge. Turn over a new leaf thi.-? ye;ir and be a better Odd Fellow in 189S than you were in 1S97. Indiana has under headway a movement to build a home for the aged Odd Fellows and orphans of that jurisdiction, and Greensburfr, Intl., is making an effort to secure the location. The winter campaign is on us. Let it be a profitable one. Every brother can help. If all third degrea meml>ers were also encampment members, there would noi be nearly so many dropped for nonpay ment of dxvs. Major General J. P. Ellacott has been honored by the grand jurisdiction of Iowa by being commissioned by Grand Master J. C. Koontz to lecture in the state. One of the pleasant incidents of the Uli nois Rebekah assembly was the presenta tion to Grand Representative W. E. Carlin of an elegant jewel in honor of the services rendered the Rebekahs in instructing them in the secret work. A brother who has been dropped from membership in his subordinate lodge can not bold membership in a Bebekah lodge South Carolina has a subordinate mem bership of 855 and 291 Kebekahs. •"' JOSEPH M. M'SAIK. BO long served his jurisdiction. That be is honest, able and painstaking is amply proved by the regard In which he is held by the order. East St. Louis lodge is one of the banner lodges of Illinois. Mount Olive, Security and Putnam lodges of St. Louis have consolidated and will henceforth be known as Security. No. 44. It begins with 255 members. A lodge was instituted in Buffalo a short time ago with 100 charter members. That breaks the record for 1S97. As the result of a smoke talk held by Mystic lodge of Lynn, 2S applications were received at the following meeting, nine more were known to bo in the hands of members who were unavoidably absent and seven candidates were initiated. Hta Own Gr»Te. John Novak (better known as Bo- biimian John) is now on his way to Atlanta, Ga., to remove the headboard from his own grave, where be was buried in 1S94. In 1893, near Atlanta, John, while chopping timber, espied a la.rge bear with a cub, and fought the mother for the cub. during which he received several injuries by gentle taps from the old bear. But, finally by a fortunate blow with bis axe, he laid old bruin out, and bleeding aud sore, triumphantly walked into town with the cub. That fall John suddenly dis- aippeared from the camp, none of his friends knowing whither he had gone. In tbe fall of 1S94 the remains of a man were found m the woods near where Jorm bad his victorious battle •with the bear. Nothing was r'ouno about the bones with which to identify the unfortunate man save a large slieathkmfe, such as Bohemian John wore. It was then and there concluded that John had attempted to capture another cub, and thereby lost his life. His old friends gathered the bones, took them to town, gave them decent burial and placed :a the head of the grave, a board bearing the inscription: "Sacred to the memory of Bohemian John killed by a bear, 1S93." ' John met young "Fred" Davis in fiis place, one of the party who assisted at the burial, and it was with difficulty that he convinced "Fred" that he was still in the iand of the living.

Plume Tips. How unpleasant it is to enter a lodge and find the, members in a heated discussion over some trifling thing that amounts ;o nothing. How discouraging it is for » uew member to visit the lodge and find almost the entire evening taken up by one or two lodge kickers. How can any lodge expect a now member in tbe order to become interested when these kickers are tolerated at each and every convention. There will be a gradual falling off of the attendance, and then the officers ask the cause. 1C is pleasant to think that such is not the case in the greater number of lodges.—Providence Journal. The object of the order of the Knights of Khorassan is to cultivate the social side of life and to endeavor to bring Pythians together. Pythianism teaches loyalty to the government and flag under which we live. The admission into a lodge of the order has been the turning point in the lives of many young men. They have been shown that -it is not all of life that we see in tbe mad rush for possession of worldly goods. The uniform rank gained foothold in Tennessee in 1881. Now there is a company in every important tovrn or city in the state. _______^___ MACCABEES.

The net increase in membership in the supreme tent for November, 1897, was 1,084 as against 858 for the same month of 1896. This is evidence that the suspensions ware much less in proportion than they were a year ago. Taking the abovo as a basis for estimating the winter's results, the outlook was never mote encouraging. Newly elected commanders should post themselves on parliamentary law. All uncalled assessments which have been paid in advance at the member's death will bo paid to the beneficiary, in addition to the benefits. Public installations are tho order of the day in New Jorsey. In case of permanent and total disability thu order pays one-tenth of thu face oi the certiiicjitu uanually., und there i.s a relief from tho payment of further assessments. Koynl Arcanum. It has never been the policy of the sn- premo council to contest claims for the mere purpose of avoiding payment, tbt solo object being to mete out justice both to the claimant and tbe order. A ono mun committee feels the whole measure of responsibility, while with thret or more be divides between his fellov, committeemen and takes only his share. "Everything in our city looks blue as far as new members are concerned. That blamed old change of rate question keeps every one guessing," says a Pennsylvania secretary. The importance of the orator in a COUE cil cannot be overestimated. In fact, the orator practically has the success of the council in his own hands.
