Services were conducted by-Rev. JW. S. Boston , and the funeral was largely attended. Martin G-riner took an overdose of chloroform last night and for a time it was thought that he would not he able to recover from the effects of the drug. DPS. J. B. Shultz and B. C.

Putnam returned last night from Cincinnati where he has been attending the commencement exercises of Lane Theological Seminary this week. On Wednesday evening he delivered the annual services before the alumni and friends of the institution. On the same day Dr. Putnam was elected as one of the members of the Board of Trustees of the Seminary. This is a position of no small honor and responsibility. Lane Seminary is one of the oldest and strongest of the theological seminaries under the care of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian church in the United States. Other new members of the Board of Trustees elected at the same time were Lowe Emerson, President of the Chamber of Commerce, Cincinnati; Rev. Dr. Work, of Wooster, Ohio; and Hon, W. P. Orr, of Piqua, Ohio. Ft. Wayne Gazette: The bow-legged bog-trotter who edits the Journal by pounding his manuscript with a shillalah, and who would not know a nominative case from a caso of smallpox if he should meet them singly or together, is concerned about the treatment of the English language received at the hands of the Gazette. The trouble with the b. b. is that be has read something in the Gazette against English free trade and don't know that the phrases English language and British free trade are not synonymous. If he will take the two or three sticks' full of editorial that he pounds out each day, to any ordinary pupil in our Grammar school they will point out to him enough errors to disgust him with the English language as "she is writ" in the editorial columns of the Journal. Miss Nettie Tull, daughter of James Tull, of Oakland Hill, a suburb of Lafayette, was decoyed from her home in early evening by a message that a young lady friend, near at hand, was dangerously ill, and accompanied by Miss Cheezum, she started for her bedside. En route the young ladies were assaulted by a stranger, and Miss Tull was knocked down by a blow which dislodged two of her teeth. She struggled to her feet, however, and made a desperate resistance, while Miss Cheezum ran to a neighbor's house .and gave the alarm.. The Misses Emma and Anna Murphy were decoyed from their home by a similar message, "but hearing of the assault upon Miss Tull, refused to proceed. Jesse White living ia the corporate limits of Lafayette, is under arrest as the assailant of Miss Tull." * JHow It wax Done. Hammer, the Michigan City pugilist who fought with Logansport's champion, Lew Allen a few nights ago; the fight being nipped in the bud by the officers tells the cChesterton Tribune how it was done. The Tribune says: "Hammer, one of the principals in the Hammer-Allen prize fight, was in town Monday. He came down to make arrangements to give a sparring exhibition in Chesterton, one day probably next week. He was unfortunate enough to be pulled, and wants to raise money to pay his fine, which he will attempt to do by giving exhi- hibitions in Northern Indiana towns. Regarding the fight, he said; •We were in a barn with two lofts, one on each side. The ring was pitched on the ground floor and the audience was in the lofts. When the Sheriff and his crowd battered down the doors, Tom Frye grabbed me by the cheek and a dozen others had hold of some part of me, and I was carried out of the barn and told to run. The referee, I understand, gave the fight to Allen on the ground that I left the ring first. I don't believe anybody can tell who left first, for the second the doors began to tumble in the people up in the hay lofts jumped down into the ring, and it was black with people, before I got out. I ran until the water was up to my neck and stopped. Pretty soon some one came my way, and thinking they were friends, spoke to them. One of the fellows said he was sorry to say he was an officer and I-was his prisoner." A Viiiidalia Scheme. Rochester Republican: The Vandalia railroad company has purchased the club house and grounds owned by the Ply mouth people at Maxenkuckee lake, consisting of twenty acres if we remember correctly. Evidently they have done this with a view of erecting a fine, large hotel, as the location and grounds are superbly suited for the put-pose. The Plymouth club was the first one to build a cottage at that place, but Maxenkuckee is now surrounded with hundreds of beautiful cottages and houses—some of them costing as much as ten thousand dollars. Good Look*. Goods looks are more than skin deep, depending upon a healthy condition of all the vital organs. If the liver be inactive, you have a bilious look, if your stomach^be disordered you have a dyspeptic 'look, • and if your kidneys be affected you have a pinched look. Secure good health and you will have_ good looks. Electric Bitters -is" ;frhi 'great alterative and tonic acts directly on these vital organs. Cures pimples, blotches, boils and gives a good complexion. Sold at B. F.

The often-used ejaculation "Hurrah!,' has a curious origin. In her beckon "The Nbrmacs," Sarah Orne Jewett traces it to the time of the •Norwegian King Eolf, wiose uame in French is pronounced llou. There was a law in his time that if a man, was in danger he could raise the cry "HaEou!" and so invoke justice in the name of the sovereign. At the' sound of thia cry everybody was bound on the instant to give the offender, under penalty of a heavy fine for failure to comply. From this law was also derived the old English "hue and cry.—Ex. Julia MarioH'e's .Future. Never did any actress win so deep a place in the regard of Logansport theater goers as did pretty Julia Marlowe during her engagement here this season, and that she has completely recovered from her late illness and gone to the stage again is a matter of pleasure to her admirers here. Miss Marlowe is playing this week in Buffalo. Last week she played in Boston a most brilliant engagement. The Herald of that city, said of her: "If, by any chance, Miss Julia Marlowe had lacked assurance o£ the profound personal regard and artistic estimation in which she has equally come to be held by Boston audiences during the brief term of her acquaintance with them, the warmth and enthusiasm of the large house which welcomed her return to life and to art at the Hollis-street Theater last evening should suffice to put the matter beyond all doubt. One never knows the value of a thing until it is lost, and Miss Marlowe's young life, whether in fact or in the perfervid imagination of some newspaper correspondent, has been in this peril since she last played in this city, and her brilliant artistic promise very near to untimely default; it was, perhaps, this ghastly hint of what her loss would mean to dramatic art that gave to her reception last evening a warmth and emphasis distinctly in excess of all past experience." The house was crowded at every performance by the finest audience* Boston affords. HOW MAN MADE Hi3 ENTRY. A letter from Kev. B. F. Mill er who is located, at Tower, Mich., says: 'We like our 'situation and surroundings very much. The church is new, consecrated-only last July, and is very beautiful and convenient. The rectory stands in the same yard and both are surrounded by a large, pretty iawn. We have nerer had a prettier house since we have been housekeeping. The outlook from our parlor windows takes ia view some beautiful summer residences, a deep, swift running river and mountains. And And yet we are very accessible, to the business part of the town. Street cars run within one block of us. There are the usual modern improvements, a benefit of civilization here. Electric lights partly cover the town and are soon to be extended throughout the city. Our people in the congregation are very bright, sociable and kind. There are many young married peoplei and they are wide awake and energetic. Cards have been received in this city announcing the marriage of Dr- Samuel Edwin Smith, late of the hospital at Long Cliff, to Miss Martha J Rogers, at Bloomington, Ind., Wednesday evening, May flth. , The card announces Dr. Smith and brida "at home" at Beaulieu, Richmond, Ind. Dr. Smith has entered upon his duties as Superintendent of the hospital for the insane at Beaulieu. The Journal extends to him and his accomplished bride its very best wishes. Commendable. All claims not consistent with the high character of Syrup of Figs are purposely avoided by the California Fig Syrup Company. It acts gently on the kidneys, liver, and bowels cleansing the system effectually, but it is not a cure-all and makes no pretensions that every bottle will not substantiate. , The -'Motlier'« Friend" Not only shortens labor, and lessens pain attending.it, but greatly diminishes. the danger to life of both mother and child if use.d a few .months before confinement.

William Weightraan, a farmer, living near New Castle, had a peculiar streak of good luck Thursday. For the past year he has kept several hundred bushels of wheat stored in his barn, and yesterday, while removing the wheat for market, an old pocketbook was found buried in the grain, which was found to contain $11,500 in gold coin and paper bills. How the money came there, or to whom it belongs, is a mystery that none can. explain. The -money was plaeed in the bank at Middletown by Mr. Weightman. The matter has caused considerable speculation in that vicinity. Invited. Back. Winamac Journal: The Logansport Military Band gave a fine entertainment at the opera house Thursday night.

The skeletons will be sent to the Smith- .sonian institution. A Timely Suffgestion. Mrs. Peterby—Thomas, your hat is right shabby. You want to buy yourself a new one. Judge Peterby—This old hat is; good enough for me. Mrs. Peterby (after a pause)—Then you can at least buy me one.—Texas liftings.

An Indian Version of tlie Creation of the World and the Origin of the Race. There are few stories of a legendary- nature that are not related in several different forms. A correspondent who has read the Indian legend of the creation sends the following excellent version of it: When the Great Spirit created the world He first made three men, all of the same color. Then He led them to a pool of water and bade them jump in and bathe. One of them obeying at once leaped in advance of his fellows and came out clean and white. The others hesitated, but one soon followed the first. When he went in the water • had become somewhat stained and he came out copper-colored. Then the third man went in. By that time the water of the pool had become 'black, and he was consequently black when he had bathed. Thus it happens that there are white men, red men and black men in the world. Then the Great Spirit laid down three packages before the three men, which contained their future fate Out of pity for the black man He permitted him to have his first choice of the parcels. The black man, without hesitation, took the largest of the parcels; the red man, whose turn was next, took the next largest parcel, and the white man got the remaining 1 oiie, which was very email. Then the men opened their packages. That of the black man was found. to contain shovels and other implements of labor, the red man's contained bows and arrows and the white man's small .parcel consisted of pens, ink and tools for light work. From that time on each man made use of the tools he had chosen.—Chicago Ifows. • Sopor^oial JuilsmeDt of Men. . In our judgment of men we are to beware of giving any great importance to occasional acts. By acts of occasional generosity weak men endeavor to redeem themselves in their own estimation, vain men to exalt themselves in that of mankind. It may be observed that there are no men more worthless and selfish, in the general tenor of then- lives, than some who, from time to tune, perform feats of generosity. Sentimental selfishness will commonly vary its indulgences in this way, and vainglorious selfishness will break out into acts of munificence. But self-gor- ernment and self-denial are not to b« relied upon for real strength, except in so far as they are found to be exercised in detail. — N. Y. Ledger. A Generous Governor. HABTFOKD, Conn., May 8.—The legislature of Connecticut having failed'to make an appropriation for the state insane asylum, Gov.
