SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENTS Df VIEW. It has been learned that the Van da- lla management has decided to make substantial Improvements in the locf 1 yards. For some years past the yards have been much too small especially when freight traffic was heavy and this connected with the fact that all freight trains from the south are compelled to run to the north end of the yard and then back on the proper siding has long been a serious inconvenience. While the plan's for the improvements have not yet bean made kuown it has been' learned that the capacity of the yard will be at least doubled. The present sidings will be lengthened out and eight additional tracks will be built. A new yard office also will be constructed, probably just across Sycamore street from the passenger (Station. The operator will be located at this office and all terminal business with conductors and engineers will be transacted here instead of as herato. fore at the ticket office. Other minor improvements nre also contemplated. The new passenger station is rapidly nearicg completion atd the officials confidently expect to occupy their new quarters by May 1st. They will ba furnished with new and handsome office furniture and equipped with water, steao) heat and electric lights. The ladies' waiting room Is already completed and will be ready for occupancy in a few days. PEXNSYLVJLNIA'S STATEMENT. Following is a statement of the bust.

SISTEBS of St. Joseph Hoapltal. A new base ball club consisting tirely of Pan Handle operators been organized. Their names positions will be given tomorrow. A hunting party consisting of?, Pan Handle offloialslpasied through the.city yesterday on a special. It is their Intentiou to shoot snipe on the prairies near Kentland. Tuesday evening Engineer Sohwier- Ing and Conductor Brockman with train S2 made the run from the 59th street yards Chicago to this city with a full train of meat in three hours and fifteen minutes. The distance IB 103 miles. This is considered one of the best runs made on the Pan Handle. Harry Cllley,telegraph operator the atJPanHandle freight house was yesterday notified by wire of the death at Harrisburg Pa., of his father. His two brothers George and Edward have been at their father's bed side for 'two weeks and were there at the time of his death. Frank Hanley, the Pan Handle , engineer of this city, is thus . mentioned by the Richmond Item for his work In a production of ' 'Arab Da Pogue" by the Julian dramatic club of Richmond: "Mr Frank Hanley, of Logansport, in the part of 'Shaun-the-Post." deserves especial mention and his jig dancing was a feature." The Fan Handle Is hauling nearly as much freight as it did a year ago yet the roadmen are not aa busy ea. they were then. This is chiefly due to the faot that the road now has more large engines whose hauling capacity Is much greater than that of the smaller type. The moat disagreeable feature ia that the layover at Chicago and Bradford is nearly aa long aa it is here, causing the men much expense for board and lodging that they would not have If they were at home. The nrtorioua Isaac Goodman who was sent to the penitentiary from Anderson for stealing from the Fan Han. die and Big Four roade Is In a fair way to be released. A press dispatch from Anderson says: Judge Ellison and Warden French are engaged in a movement for the pardon of Isaac Goodman who was recognlzsd..aa the leader of the once famous Goodman gaag, which is DOW confined behind the bare of the prison north. Judge Ellison called on the governor yesterday and he will consider the matter this week. Isaac Goodman IB over eighty years of age and is rapidly sinking. "He has made a fortune at plundering, it being claimed he received hlstrainlng under Quantrell In the West in, the sixties. He waa worth about $30,000 when the gang waa rounded up by deputy sher- iffs at Summitvllle two years ago and forced to surrender after Dick Good man, the old man's eon, was shot three times and the same bad befell Capt. Coburn, who led the police and sheriffs. It is now claimed that the elder Goodman was not identified with the gang, but this wi)l hardly have so much weight as his years and ill health, Mmltli-ltunker. The friends of Hugh Smith and Mies Jaura Bunker, gathered Wednesday night at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Bunker, of No. 100 Bates street} to witness the happy marriage of the two young people.

Do you ever stop to think, when you are having an especially good time on your wheel, how little margin there is between supreme content and supreme disgust? A pumc- ture that you can't repair, a crank key that refuses to stay -firmly in place, a chain that is faulty in con struction and thus runs hard, or a hundred and one things that the maker ought to have built right and adjusted right, but didn't, will make cloudy and disagreeable the most sunshiny day, and will cause even the laughter and pleasant words of friends to jar upon yon. It ia in smoothing out these rough places in your cycling path that the board of experts which plans the famous Columbia Bicycle serves you best. The single-tube tires are even nearer to perfection than in 1894, •when they won tbe whole cycling world to the use of this form of tire by their remarkable success. The driving gear runs so smoothly anc noiselessly that it is evident friction is almost entirely overcome. The chain especially is almost turning the heads of cycling wiseacres with its beauty and finish and accuracy of construction. The crank-shaft is narrow, strong and simple. The adjustable handle bars are ideal in their promise of comfort. The place to buy these wheels is at Filling's Shoe House. If you want your lace car tains to look the same as new, send them to us for lanndrying. A long experience in this line of work enables us to guarantee satisfaction. 429 Market St STEELE & TOUKEY can save you from $6 to $ a suit of Tailor Made Clothes.

It^wlll pay you to be particular'as to whose seeds yon buy. We are now in the market with a f ull line of Landreth's seeds for the season of 1895, and I wish to say to the gardeners and others using seeds, that while Landreth's seeds may be a little higher price then some others they are always fresh, clean and true to name, and as we handle no other seeds eicept those grown by Landreth & Sons of Philadelphia out customers may rely on (jetting nothing but the very best. I believe that the cost of the seeds is nothing compared to the crop, and when a person has the trouble to put out a garden, he should use nothing but the very beit We handled Landreth's seeds for four years and have never heard a single complaint; in fact, our customers unhesitatingly pronounce them perfect in ever particular, and as an evidence of this fact, we have almost the entire trade of all the gardeners around Logansport as well as many from a distance. Our trade has increased on this particular line of goods more than tenfold since we have been in the business? We also have a full line of garden tools and field seeds. Remember that the firm of Landreth & Sons has been 115 years In th« occupation of seed growing; '• George Harrison. 617,623 Broadway.
