Otto Voss, tan well known young cigarmaker, employed by John Mul- cacy, and a son of Henry Voss, sexton of Mount Hope cemetery, was fatally injured at an early hour this morning while allghtiDg rrom a passenger train. He had for seveial hours been in the company of friends, and together they had proceeded to the Panhandle depot, which is in the early morning hours a scene of much life aa<3 activity. While watchlug the arrival and departure of the trains the one oound for Cincinnati slowly began Its eastern journey and Robert Smith, a lather, his remaining companion, suggested, as they were going home, that they board the train and ride to Fifth street, a block above, where they could alight and proceed on their way. Tnt-y did so, crossing to the south platforms of the cars. Arriving at Fitch street Otto's foot slipped as he swung outward, and in attempting to regain his footing he wasdrawo under tbe train,the wheels passing over tbe left leg and foot, mangling the limh in a horrible manner. Falling on the outside of the rail prevented further mutilation of the body. Help was immediately summoned and the body carried to Dr. Hetherington's office Although not aware of his fatal injuries, the young man suffered terrioly and his screams of agony brought tears to the eyes of all—even those who were hardened to such scenes being unable to repress those visible signs of emotion. Little could be done to stem the outward tide wnich foretold the near approach of death. All aid -which surgery could command was rendered, but to no avail further than to relieve the terrible pain by means of producing an unconscious condition. At 3:30 o'clock the spark of life left its earthly tenement and Otto VOES was a corpse. The aged father had been summoned as quickly as possible and saw his son while yet living. His grief was pitiable. Only a few hours previous the youn'g man had left home in the full strength ot man's estate and to be thus rudely brought to the side of a dying child was a shock which only a parent can feel and understand. His parents, two brothers and two sisters, one of tbe latter being Mrs. Stelnhart, wife ot Professor Wm. Steinhart, are mourners beside his bier. Deceased was an active member of tbe Clgarmakers 1 union, and that body will meet tonight to make arrangements for attending the funeral, the time of which will be announced later. TBAW. FOSTOFFICE FOISTS. A Sample of the Torture to Which Delivery Clerk Slanders is Subjected. What the Lebanon Reporter has found to say about the torture general delivery clerks of postotfices are subjected is reprinted out of sympathy for Clerk Manders of the Logansport office: "Many delivary clerks at postoffices would live longer and happier If some children would inquire for mall but seven times a day Instead of nine. A freckle-faced girl stopped at the post- office and yelled: 'Anything for the Browns?' 'No, there is not.' 'Anything for Jane Brown?' •Nothing.' •Anything for Ann Brown?' •No.' 'Anything for Tom Brown?' 'Anything for Bob Brown?' 'No, not a bit.' 'Aoyihing-for Jerry Brown?' 'No; nor for Pat Brown, nor Dennis Brown, nor Pete Brown, nor'Paul Brown—nor for any Brown, dead, living or unborn, native or foreign, civilized or uncivilized, savage, or barbarous, male or female, black or white, enfranchised or disfranchised, naturalized or otherwise. No, there is positively nothing for any of the Browns, either individually, jointly, severally, now and for ever, one ana inseparable, e pluribus unum.' "Tne girl gazed at the oostmaster in meek astonishment a moment and said: " 'Please to look if there is anything for Clarencft Browm.' " Korn SLarnlTal Programme.

An Era of Mad Snccaeds Oar First Winter rt'cather- The rain smd thaw of the past .few days has dissipated the snow and ruined the ice, and brought a season of mud.

Happily, the city's supply of the congealed is safely housed and there need be no fear of a famine in that line this summer, DELEGATES APPOINTED. J. T. Elliott and W.

A few days ago a number of large taxpayers were discussing the question of whether greenbacks are taxable. One gentleman stated that he hai asked several people in a position to know and had received misleading information. It seems that about the time for making tax returns large taxpayers would goto the bank and state that they had such a sum represented in taxable securities. Then the banker would give them what was known as a certificate of deposit, representsng cash equal to the value of the table securities. This would enable the dodger of taxes to make and think that all of his holdings were represented in cash. After the given period the dodger of taxes could return the certificate and his conscience be lightened without his having ever legally held a dollar in greenbacks. About two years ago congress passed a law leaving it optional with the states as to whether they should tar greenbacks, but according to eminent authority noneot the states have taken advantage of tbat enactment. The feeling of most of the constitutional lawyers is that greenbacks are actually taxable. , The bankers s&y in their opinion they i are not. They decline to discuss this matter, as they do not think that the public at large desire it- Smoke the,0olu*ibia Coming Carriage of Miss Anna Brrer.

A Clerer Adaptation of th« Great Amerlean Game. It takes a stretch of tbe imagination to adapt tbe robust American game to household entertainment, but this is what is done in parlor baseball. 'Take a large Sheet of cardboard atid draw on it a ba»«- ball diamond, showing the home plate, first, second and third bases. At each of the bases mark off a circular space for tho base runners. Each player is supplied with nine pieces, each separate nine, being of a distinct color. On another rather Inrge sheet of cardboard draw a circle, ili • vided off into 13 spaces, the Hues of division corniiisr together, of course, in tho center. Attach an arrow or anv other form of indicator to the center of cbiscard- f/ftfT, HOME MS. PARLOR BASEBALL. board and label the spaces "base hit," "two bagger," "three buses," "homa run," "foul," "onestrike,""twostrikes." "three strikes," "out," "one bail," "two balls,""three balls," "lour balls," and on the remaining two spaces "out" again. The player who goes first to bat flips the arrow. Suppose it stops at "base hit." He advances one of bis counters or men to tho circular space at first base. His second man is now put in the space at homa plate, or "at the bat." Again the arrow is spun. This time it may fall at "two strikes." and herein is one of the delightful possibilities of the game. Tho samn counter remains at the bat and the arrow is sent speeding again. If it stops on "one Strike," "two strikes," "three strikes" or "out," the man at the bat retires ;md another counter takes his place, with a record of "one ont" for the team at; bat. If, however, the arrow should indicate, for example, thfi "two bagger" space, then tho man on first advances to third and the man at bat goes to second base. Another hit will bring in one run. And so it goes. Men on bases are not permitted to advance on strikes. MASONIC. Seven Brother* Confer the Decrees on Their Father—Chips From the Temple. The Ringling brothers are known all over the country as the proprietors o£ the Ringling circus. Seven of these brothers are members of Barsboo lodge, No. 34, of Wisconsin jurisdiction, and after the seven were all members o.t the lodge the petition of the father was received. Tho Ringling brothers qualified themselves to confer the degrees, were assigned to the several positions in the lodge, received the father into the lodge and conferred tbe degrees upon him.—Freemason. The total sum presented to charities by the Freemasons of England in commemoration of tbe queen's diamond jubilee amounts to $75,127. The report of Grand Treasurer Moore of Texas showed that tbe widows and orphans' fund was swelled by f3i,000 during the past year, and excess of receipts over disbursements from the general fund •was $3,000. One of tbe greatest evils which afflict the world, Masonry not excluded, \e the greed for office. In Masonry it should be forbidden by legislation. Nominations should be forbidden as well as solicitation. Let each brother vote for whom he pleases. Last year the grand lodge of Texas suspended 53 members for un-Masonic conduct, 792 for profane swearing, 76 for gambling and 347 for drinking to Intoxication. There is but one way to conscientiously keep the O. .B. and properly guard the wort, and that is to only receive and impart it orally, as our forefather;) did before us from time immemorial.—Masonic Journal. The printed proceedings of the grand council of Indiana for 1897 contain 35 one page portraits of their grand masters. The grand lodge of Colorado refused to indorse the Wisconsin proposition for relief because it was opposed to 'the introduction into the system of Freemasonry of any feature that tends in tbe direction of compulsory relief. The grand ledge of Missouri holds that tbe daughter of a Master Mason, who, ac the ago of about 21 years, marines a profane, is entitled to recognition as such as she was before marriage. Furs. It is a novel experience of the -woman who does her shopping abroad so find that she makes nothing whatever by purchasing her furs on the other side. All the choicest furs come in duty free, and so skillful are American workmen in preparing and dressing them that many European houses send their furs to this country to be finished for making up. —Exchange. Knight* »nd Ladle* of Honor., The Knights and Ladies of Honor have reason to rejoice in the magnificent record made the past year.
