Very Strong at Vecder»b«r K -Jiiil Delivery at Princeton-State Kep.ihlicaii Clubs to Sleet at, Lafayette. Indianapolis, Jan. 14. —The supreme court holds that life insurance policies are not taxable under the present constitution and laws of the state. Justice McCabe, who wrote the opinion, •was supported by Justices Hackney and Jordan. Justices Howard and Monks dissent. In support of the argument that the legislature of 1891 did not Intend to provide for the taxation of life insurance policies it was pointed out that the tax law passed that year did not provide any regulations for the valuation of policies. In that and .-mil- sequent statute;? the legislatures, It is recalled, provided special regulations for tho valuation of all other classes of property that are difficult to value. View o» Justice Howard. Justice Howard in the dissenting- opinion took to the view that insurance policies had B: "property" value and that tinder the constitution and the general terms of the tax laws all kinds of property mu:5t be assessed unless it be specifically exempted by the constitution. The case may be taken to the supreme court ot the United States. The barn late at: night to attend to nls horses.

Ind., Jan. 14.— James Gill and Fleeta, Lee were married in the window of the Clipper saloon while the orchestra, softly played "All Coons Look Alike to Me," and "There'll Be a Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight."

The re.Lsed platform when; the ceremony occ'jrred was literally carpeted with roses. At 8 o'clock the street in front of thf: saloon was packed with people, and It was with difficulty that the nuptial csuriage, drawn by four white horses, was forced through the crowd.

A banquet followed the cercimony and three cases of champagne, given by the saloonkeeper, graced the fca'lal board. SENTitMENT MOB SENTIMENT. Which In Veif Evident from Its Ex- pre»slons—Makes a Bold EHcape. •Veedersburg;, Ind., Jan. 14.—New developments in the Thompson burg-lary case seem to keep the excitement at a high pitch. Yesterday morning Detective Cossaday and Marshal "Wertz went to the coal mines to arrest Sam Pearman as an alleged accomplice oi! Alan Curtla After Pearman had been placed under arrest he asked permission to •wash himself, and watching his opportunity he jumped from the room through a window, taking the sash with him, and made his escape. It Is supposed that h>: secreted himself in another entranc B to the mine, and he will be hard to locate. Wednesday night an effigy -was huns on the bridge in the central part of town, as an i.ndex of public sentiment. There seems no doubt but that if Thompson would sanction it mob violence would be resorted to. Frequent comment is lieard upon the laxity of the law and the light sentences received by ofO 'nclers, and that this would •would justify the organization of a mob to revenge the crime committed.

ControUinc tl»« "«*• Many theories have been advocated as to how male or female offspring may be produced; and yet, after all, there is no theory in the matter, but a very simple law of nature, says a writer to Dakota Farmer. Give a bull and cow of like ages and strength and constitution and the produce of these may be of either sex. But let the bull be old or weak or out of condition, and the calf will, almost without exception, be male, and this is merely the law of nature trying to reproduce itself, because, of the two animals, the bull shows evidence of being the one most likely to die first, and, therefore, the male calf would be the one required to carry on the breed. In short, the offspring produced is of the same sex, as a rule, as the weaker ol the two parents. This, I know, is quite contrary to the most general theory; but I have taken the trouble to study and prove it during the past six and thirty years, and I have found that it is invariably the case, not only as regards cattle, but also'in the case of sheep, horses, and even human beings. \Vhen our colonies were first settled and quantity rather than stock was the one thing desired, young rams were put to old, broken mouth ewes, with the result that ewe lambg were produced in numbers as eighty is to twenty. But when the and heavily fleeced wethers were want- ad, old rams were put to two-year-old ewes, and the result was that about three parts of the lambs were rams. I know that what I have written will be contradicted by many, but I have proved It correct during thirty-six years ot » farming life, at hone and abroad. SCRAPS.

Thompson cites the case of a worK- man at York, who, having fallen from a high building that he was repairing, succeeded in holding on to the gutter with one hand. He was rescued, but not unitil his hadr had turned white. While the hair of people verging toward middle age turns gray slowly and progressively, the whitening of a single hair usually occurs in one night. This gives some ground for belief when stories are told of people whose hair has become white in one night through fright. The cases in which the change o£ color is not instantaneous, but is very rapid, appear to be most frequent. Emotional grayness seems to be favored by pressure; when a£ter the shock the subject remains during some time •with his head resting on his band or his arm, the compressed part is often the only one affected or, at least, is particularly affected. Bichat saw one of his friends grow quite white ic the space of a single night, after having experienced a violent emotion.

The cost of keeping her with one litter is not much less than if she should have two, while the difference in the profit she gives to her owner is considerable. Her first litter should come after the spring grass has made a good .lUrt in. order that she may have the •jilt to suckle well, though an old sow may be bred to farrow earlier. The second litter should come reasonably early in tie fall, so as to give the pigs opportunity for a good growth and that they may become accustomed to eating before encountering any of the hardships of winter. If kept growing through the winter they may be prepared for market before the hot weather of the following summer.
