FATHER AND MOTHER Are Prisoners in the Jail, Cass County And the Children Being Cared for bj the Sheriff—A C»s« of Total Jjepraritj. It is about time for some of tbe good people of Loganaport who are daily seeding money abroad Co educate heathens, to give aome of tceir time, energy ana attention to the heathens here at home. For example, there Is William Shull and wife, both of whom have reached the very lowest level In tno scale of humanity, and unless seme action is taken "by those in authority, the lives of tbe innoceiat children of that depraved couple will be corrupted and fina'ly ruined by the unholy associations. Shull and wife are both prisoners la the county jail, and their children are being cared for by Sheriff Homburg. The Shulls have been occupying the apartments on the second floor of Charles Stoll's building on Third street. On Monday Mrs. Shull was convicted of the charge of keeping a house of prostitution, and having no money whh which to pay her fine, was sentenced to fifteen days in jail. After her Incarceration the two children were left in charge of their father. The latter became intoxicated last evening, and was also locked up. The children left alone began crying bitterly and they were given io charge of tha sheriff, Shull was arraigned this morning and Mayor McKee directed that he be recommitted for twenty days. MOKE OIL Wanted to Pour mi the Toubted Waters There. Emmett Svraff.ird aud Homer Shelly Assaulted Mursuil Flomerfelt. Walton, Ind , Jan. 14, 189S. Edltois Pharos:—More oil is needed to quiet the troubled waters. Yes- terda? Emmett Stafford and Homer Shelly came to Walton and tanked up on fighting whiskey. When City Marshal Flomerfelt requested them to move on home, Swafflord attacked him with a sling soot or some weapon of the kind and knocked the breath and blood out of him. He askefc for help, and G. W. Sbedron, the stock Oman, responded, bu' Swaflord lit out for borne and Shedron's speed could not overtake blm. The marshal empowered Dick Roach and Snyder to go into tbe country and bring his man in. They found blm at the Bethel church and captured him at the point of a volver, as the boy swore he would not be taken. He was lodged in the noted Walton jail until this morning When sober he pleaded guilty to druokeness and assaulting- an officer Esquire Barnard fined him »3 on the first charge and f 15 on the second making $20 with costs. RAILROAD BREVITIES. Short Items of Interest Gathered From Many Sources. The Vandalla pay car visited Lo- jansport today. Joseph Smith, a Vsuidalia switchman, is ill of typhoid fever. N. R. Donaldson,Panhandle freight agent, was at Indianapolis yesterday. The common stock of the Panhandle is now selling at double what It was two months ago, and the pre ferred stock is neariDjj par, A locomotive pulling an extra east bound freight train broke down here esterday. A locomotive was sent over from Peru to take her place. The net earnings oit the Pennsyl- ania lines west of Pittsburg for 1897 will, it is stated, reach $11,826,226, and it is predicted; that 1S98 will how at least 12,000,000 more than hose of 1897. Engineers and conductors on the Panhandle lines aie making very sat sfactory wages, engineers earning rom »130 to 1145 per month. On bese lines an engineer Is allowed to make only so many trips per month, o that there will be no occasion to ay he has teen worked toe many hours. Tremble Again.

Who Was the Renter of This Box In January, 1887? The article In last evening's Pharos regarding the discovery of a large accumulation of undelivered doail matter at Georgetown postoffice was correct, with the exception of tae location, The Dlace referred to Is located In Floyd county. There are three hamlets in the state called Georgetown, but the postoffice names are different with the above exception. Georgetown, down the river, this county, Is known to the mail service as Gordon P. 0. The third Georgetown is In Brown county. The postmasters at Chicago and Indianapolis have bet>n claiming che return of the oldest mailed letters the length of time ranging from efghi to ten years. But the local office has received a letter addressed to Blehard Coble and plainly postmarked as mailed at Logansport, January, 15, 1887—eleven years ago tomorrow. In the upper left-hand corner is written "Box 303, Logansport, Ind., ! for return purposes. Delivery Clerk Wanders wishes to know who was the renter of that box so be can return the letter. It willl be Interesting to learn the identity of the writer and may clear away many doubts as to the reason for not receiving a reply. Inquiry reveals the fact that Klchard Cable did reside at Georgetown, down the river, aod the last) city directory gives his name in its farmers' list. Postoffice names are often a puzzle, as they differ very frequently from the generally accepted name of town, and it would be well for writers to inquire of the postmaster when in doubt. LEANS TOrYAKDS JSICKUM. An Owen Countj Man Thinks That Gravity Hay be a Fash Instead of a Pall. A professor by the name of J. C. Culmer, of Owen county, takes some stock in Nlckum's new llgb,t. He holds that gravity Is a push instead of a pull. "The magnet," he says, -'does not attract. The force seems to be from without, and to be an efiort of nature to restore a disturbed electrical equilibrium. The manifestations of gravity and electro magnetism seem to be identical. The light, heat and motion of the universe are electrical,. "The 'atmosphere pressure' loses meaning rapidly after the gravity force Is applied externally and vibration cannot by any license be made to stand for force, of which it must be only a manifestation. I hope Mr. Nickum has found such alight as is described. It has seemed feasible to other investigators, and he may be the fortunate first producer of it." Whether or not Nlckum's light 19 a success, it Is now demonstrated that a good many students of natural philosophy have been studying the matter from the same standpoint.

Miss Anna Wagner, daughter ot Mr. and Mrs. F. Wagner, of the Westside, died at 9 o'clock today or consumption, aged 22 years. Tae deceased was a most estimable young lady, beautiful, and possessed of a gentle disposition which won her many friends. She fell a victim of hasty consumption, and was confined to her bed for nearly a year. She was a de-rout member of St. Joseph's Catholic church, and took an aictive part in the work of the Young Ladies society ot that chnrch. The death of Miss Wagner is particularly sad IE that had she lived and regained her health she would have become the wife of Mr. Joseph Sembusch, the popular young muiiician. * Tie Weather.

Added to this feature is the local news department, becter and fuller than ever, the telegraph news and a wide variety of miscellaneous reading matter, demonstrating that tbe Pharos does not play only on one string, but covers the whole needs of the home and family. WEiLTd PRODUCERS. The Value of Indiana's Farm Products Exceeded Twu Hundred and Fifty million Dolls rs Last Tear. The state stataticiaa has just completed a compilation of the figures showing the Quantity ot agricultural products harvested in Indiana in 1897 and the estimated value thereof. Accordio'g to his figures the aggre te value of the products of ou farms for the year 1S97 exceeded $250,000,000. The crop that should bring the most money according t< the report is that of timothy and clover hay. Of this crop 3,237,625 tons were harvested, the estimatec value of which is $38,000,000. Thli must be an error, as it would mak( each lion of bay worth 112. There were 37,000,000 bushels of wheat harvested, valued at 133,000,000 and 123,000,000 of corn valued at 821,00^0 000. This makes last year's wheat crop exceed the value of the corn crop by nearly 810,000,000. It is generally supposed that the Indiana corn crop is worth more money than the wheat crop. The value of laughtered animals is placed at $32, 000,000. But the strangest thin j Is that if all ol Indiana's farm products were sold and turned into the government treasury it would only be sufficient to pay operating expenses for six months. An Impossible Performance. Senator Chandler -warns McKinley that he mnst either stand by the people or join the plutocrats. Blondin in his famous rope trip across Niagara's roaring rapids never 1 balanced himself so picturesquely or so uniquely as will oar president when he performs the dazzling trick of standing by the people arid at the same time by the plutocrats, pools, syndicates, civil service reform and all sorts of trusts and monopolies. I>epew'» Tain Hop« For Peace* Dr. Depewis for "peace, peace." His idea is that with peace this country can eaiptnre the markets o* the world—of eourse he means tarifr peace. What, liowever, would become of Dingley's ox/cnpatioa if this, nation should declare for tariff peace? And what would the Ttepnblican party do for the sinews of campaign that sire so genejrously con- tribtLted by tbe beneficiaries of Republican fcroteeti<)o£ ].': L . _•......... :, "WICKED DEMOCRATS." They Are ApiinKt the Trusts and Seeking to Corapa*u> Their Overthrow. Gimton's .Magazine, in an article telling congress what it must do to be saved during the present session, solemnly warns the Republicans that they musfc have the courage of their convictions or tbe iivrful handwriting will be recorded on the wall against them. It comes to the point squarely and boldly when it says: "The Democratic party is siding with and aiding the antitrust, which is the autiwealth, cru Bade, and tbe Kepublican party seems to be more tbaii half afraid to meet tbe issue aud in mauy instances falls in with the crowd. No political party can ba successful which does uot join either tbe mob or rise sufficiently above it to be able to deal with the demands of the masses on a high statesmanlike plane." There you have it laid down flat. Everybody can understand all of it except; the "high statesmanlike plane." In explanation of that it will suffice for the present to say that 021 the "plane" is mapped out a grand programme of paternalism to compensate the masses for the robberies committed by the trusts under shelter of the tariff. The wicked Democratic party is siding against the trusts an,d seeking to compass their overthrow. The magazine organ of the trusts says so, and the Democrats do not deuy it. The Kepub- lican party is sidiag with the trusts, secretly if not openly, but it is more than half afraid to side with them openly. The trust organ tells it there must be no hesitation to support the trusts openly if it wants to succeed or at least do something to hold the masses still while tbe trusts fleece them. Surely the Republican party ought to fling to the winds its fears and "rise sufficiently above *J~ ntob" to side with the trusts ope^i;.. Why not? It depends on the trusts for campaign fat. It builds up trusts aud defends them by means of tariff protection. It ought to have the courage to acknowledge its own offspring and defend them openly. The Democrats will uot object uor will they hesitate to proclaim their hostility to all trusts or combinations to stifle competition. Let tbe issue be joined openly. The Democratic party bdieves in compet^- tioii. It will uot hesitate Co say that the trusts must be made to cease throttling competition aud permit natural conditions to prevail. It will not hesitate to "join the mob" to force the trusts to let go. Now let the .Republican party, whose whole' tariff policy is a policy of throttling competition and therefore a, trust policy, openly and honestly side with the trusts. On that line the Democratic party will be content to fight it out if it takes a score of years.—Chicago Chronicla CONFESSION OF FAILURE. Dingley Tunis to the Beer Tax to Help Ont His Pnny Tariff BilL Congressman Dingley, who achieved ill fame by giving his name to the puniest, yet most vicious, tariff ia oar history, has been compelled to acknowledge that the act which was to have produced "additional revenue" needs TO be helped out by some real revenue measures. In .desperation the solemn Dingley remarks that to increase the tas on beer would be simplicity itself. So it would have been: last summer. At that time the opponents of Financier Dingley pointed out that the addition of a barrel to the beer tax would bring n $30,000,000 a year. That increase would have filled the hole made by the Wilson act by the nullification of the income tax. With the additional beer tax the Wilson tariff would .have produced enough revenue and even a surplus after its first year, while the McKinley panic was still raging. If the beer tax had been increased as suggested, there wonld have been no excuse for tbe Dingley tariff bungling. The Dingley billers, however, reftued to enact the desired legislation in regard to beer. They insisted upon making another tariff "to provide adequate revenues for the government/" They bud ' A great Slaughter SALE OF FINE WINTER SHOES Which mnst be closed out at one-third their value to make r«K>m for our large Purchase of Spring Goods.
