The latter improvement will cost the company over $200,000. Some extensive work in reballast- ing the north end of the Richmond division between here and Richmond, will be begun as soon as similar work is done north of Logansport, so -the steam shovel now in use there, can he secured.

Aaron Bacon Scott was born in Middlebury, Vt., June 8th, 1815 and died at nis home in Peru Tuesday night May 5. He was of Scotch- Irish decent, his parents having 1 emigrated from Scotland in early life. Losing his father while still a young boy he was adopted by an uncle living in Cleveland, Ohio, who, being a mason by trade, taught Mr. Scott the 'business. He built the first brick business honse erected in Peru. He was married to Mary Sines White in Lancaster Ohio, June 8th, 1842, and removed from that place to Peru, arriving there on March 31st, 1843. The issue of this marriage was , six children, five of whom survive him, viz: Mrs. . Walter Wilson, Mrs. W. F. Daly, Mr. A. C. Scott, of Peru, Mr. W. W. Scott of Chicago, and Mr. F. W. Scott of Denver, Col. About eight years ago he was attacked with inflamation of the eyes, caused by .a bad cold and from that time was a great sufferer at times until finally his sight failed gradually until he became .totally blind. He was the last one of the" charter members of Miami Lodge, No. 67, F. and A. M., of Peru; also a member of Logansport chapter. He took the degree of Knight Templar in St. John's Commandery No 24, of this city Nov. 1875, under whose direction his funeral laok place yesterday afternoon from the Presbyterian church in Peru, a large body of Knights Tem- plars and Masons going from here to take part in the obsequies. HI* Humble Birthplace. About two miles north of Battle Ground stands the little log but in which Bishop I. W. Joyce was born and reared. It is about twenty rods from the Monon railroad tracks, and is in the center of a green field • of wheat, It is an interesting 'spot, 'made so because Bishop, Joyce was born there. When a. little boy in homespun, trousers his feet trod over every foot of ground about the hut. To-day they support the form of a great man—a man whose position is sacred, dignified and one of the most responsible and honored that man can attain. It is for a life-time, and no man ever' filled it who was more worthy of the high honor. There is but one room ia the hut, and if it could, what interesting reminescences of the boyhood of Bishop Joyce it would relate. . The argument in the Wolcott-Pan Handle case was closed last evening and the case was given -to the jury which retired about six o'clock. The case has attracted considerable attention owing to the heavy, damages claimed and a vigorous fight has been made on both sides. A Long Dry Spell. An English army officer says that it has rained only twice in twenty-nine years in Aden, near Arabia, and then only enough to lay the dust, The last time it rained there was three years ago, after twenty-six years of drought. Rev. Father Mulcahey well-known in Catholic circles in this city has been transferred by Bishop Dwehger from Grass .Creek Fulton county to Anderson where he will assume spiritual control of St. Mary's church. Rev. Father Weichman, late pastor of that church going to Grass Creek. The Marion Chronicle characterizes the action as a revengeful caprice on the part of the Bishop, saying . "Rev. Father Weichman, for eight years pastor of St. Mary's Catholic church at Anderson, and a well-known and popular man, has been assigned by Bishop Dwenger to Fulton, an out of the way place in northern Indiana, described as containing 250 inhabitants, surrounded by a big swamp, and eighteen miles from a railway. This appointment is regarded as a tyrannical whim of the Bishop, because of Father Weichman's refusal to build a new church at Anderson. An attempt will made by the people of that place to secure his release from tnis diocese. If the latter is obtained he will go to Denver." Protect tUe Shade Tree*. A Missourian has recovered $100 from a hawbuck who tied his mules to a handsome maple shade tree belonging 1 to the villager, letting the mules bark and kill the tree, it being one his grandfather planted. A Tennessee 1 correspondent in a neighboring paper says that the craze among the southern people for the dog is altogether incredible. There are • hundreds of parents who have never been known -to provide a decent suit of clothes for themselves or children, who maintain" from one to a half dozen of the meanest and most worthless of these canine brutes, Thousands of children in that State, the correspondent says, are growing up to manhood and womanhood without a day's schooling, on their parent's plea that they are too poor to send their children to school, yet these same paaents , have never been known to plead their, , poverty when it comes to providing ' for a whole band of sneaking, sheep- killing dogs; leaving one to the conclusion that they have a greater regard for their dogs than they do for their own children. Logan Lodge No. 1246, Knights of Honor will give a dance at the G. A. R. hall on the evening 1 of the 20th inst. The Center of Population.
