A game of base ball Sunday afternoon between the Jerusalem club and •the West Side-club resulted in a score •of-7 to 8 in favor of the former club. It was said to be a, very fine amateur ga'me: Frank Duckworth .'umpired, the game-and is alive to tell the story'- Dr. and Mrs. Rogers, of Long- Cliff have returned from Washington, D. C., where the doctor attended a national meeting of Superintendents of insane hospitals. Superintendant and Mrs. Rogers touched at other points of interest during the'r eastern trip and enjoyed a few days at Old Point Comfort. Persons on Man-carrier Clymei-'s route yesterday no doubt noticed the satisfied and complacent smile which constantly played on the features of the genial carrier. Inquiry developed the fact that a pretty girl baby had been ushered in at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clymer on Sunday, hence the smile. It is DOW authoritively announced that the long projected Cory-Keating fight will occur within fifty miles of Logansport on or about the 24tb inst. Both men are now in active training at Chicago and it is said will be in superb trim for the affair which will be the most spirited that has taken place in this State for many years. Chicago and Indiana sports are all agog over the coming affray. Calvin, the 12-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Thurston Shortridge died at the family residence on the South. Side at 12:30 p. m. yesterday. The funeral will be held to-day at 2:30 o'clock from the South Side Christian church. It is but a few weeks since Mr, and Mrs. Shortridge lost a daughter, brain fever being the cause of the death of both children. Mr. John McGuire, an old and.re- spected citizen, living a mile south of the city on the Burlington pike, died on Sunday morning at the advanced age of 72 years. The deceased had been a resident of this county for many years. He came to this state from Ohio in 1832, settling in Carroll county, butlatter moved to this county. His funeral was held from his late residence yesterday at 2 o'clock and was largely attended. John Roof one of the boys who was mixed up in the Sunday base ball fight on the West-side a week ago and who •escaped arrest with three of his pals at the time, has been arrested and was yesterday fined $5. in Squire Smith's court. Young Roof then filed a complaint against young Smith, the boy whom ihey attacked,alleging provoke. This case will probably come up to-day and the provoke law will, get another airing. A. Frank Ten nan t, the smiling clerk at the Murdock, and three of his friends, jovial traveling men, spent Sunday with "mine host" Allison of the Clifton house at Delphi. Among the features of the day was a drive up the beautiful Tippecahoe. Mr. Allison took his friends to a spot where bass were plenty and the hooks -were kept busy. Major Tennant and his party returned yesterday. Frank says there was nothing very "Delphi" about the day or the time they had. The reunion of the Epworth. leagues of the city at the Broadway M. E. chutch Sunday evening proved a very pleasant affair which was enjoyed by a large audience. The union meeting was commemorative of the second anniversary of the organization of the league in Logansport and the. combined strength of the leagues of the three Methodist churches was displayed to good - advantage. Marion Swadener and Miss Jennie Meginnis led tb.3 devotional exercises; Rev. H. A. Davis delivered the introductory address; Mrs. J. B. Shultz sang a solo; Dr. Hetheririgton gave an historical sketch; the male quartette rendered a delightful selection; Homer Kessler read a paper—"Epwortb. Idea;" which was followed by congregational stnging; Mrs. Murphy read a selection-; the Broadway choir sang a selection, and the, meeting closed with a select reading by Sylvester Sutton. The last Chapter ol" the Horrible Truifcd j'. The last scene of the dreadful double tragedy which so startled the cily Saturday afternoon was enacted when Martin Griner breathed his last at 3:10 Sunday morning-. With wonderful vital tenacity the murderer and suicide clung to life through the night, but as the first gray beams began to light the eastern heavens his life quietly passed. His latter moments were apparently free from suffering and the life he sought passed from bis mortal frame with scarce a straggle. LH~I-S Martin Griner was 51 years and 6 months old. At one time he was the leading barber in the city, having built the fine building at present occupied by Martin Bligh for a shop. He lost considerable sums by being on several security bonds and apparently with the loss of his property lost his ambition as for some years he has been a wreck of his former self. He was not as stated in the Journal Sunday one of Oscar Goodwin's bondsmen. He was insured in the Knights of Honor for §3,000 and in the Elkhart Mutual, §1,000. His funeral will be held from the residence of his family, No. 2 Canal street at 2 o'clock this afternoon. The body of Martin Griner's victim, Mrs. Anna Keister is still lying at the undertaking establishment of Woll & Parker. Sunday morning Coroner Ballard held an autopsy on the remains. He found the twj bullets which entered the right temple in close proximity, imbedded in the brain. The bullets had taken an upward course and striking the top of the skull followed around it to the base of the brain. Her death was instantaneous. Messrs. Woll & Parker received word last evening that a son of the unfortunate woman, living at Monticello, would appear to day to claim the remains of the woman who had once been to him a loving mother, but so sadly, deeply fallen since. He Will Xot2» to Fulton. 'Anderson Daily Democrat: "The popular impression among the people of Anderson is that Father Weich- rnan, who was lately removed from the pastorate of the St. Mary's congregation at this place was ministering to the wants of the Catholic flock at Fulton. Ind. Such is not the case. The eloquent and high spirited priest has instead of going .to Fulton, gone to Denver, Colorado. He is now there and will probably remain. "Bishop Dwenger, of Ft. Wayne, supposed he was sick at his home in this city, and was not aware that he had gone to Denver until he was apprised by a telegram from this city yesterday. "Father Weichman has been advised by his physicians to go to Colorado for his health, and has been warned that a continuance in this climate would be fatal to him. The flock at Fulton is practically without a pastor, unless Bishop Dwenger has appointed one to-day. It is understood that Father Weichman has been offered the charge of the Denver cathed ral. Shako HaodH Jand Quit, A letter from R. S. Miller of Burrows, denies the existence of Whits Caps in that vicinity. He says: "I thick it is very malicious to write such an article and I am sorry that the Journal was trapped into publishing anything that tends to keep this trouble agitated. I believe these White Caps are creatures, of tie imagination-and have never been anything else." . The Journal does not know whether there ard White Caps at Burrows or not. It does know that it has received communications without number reflecting on one citizen and another during the past year. At this distance it is impossible to say who is right but it is probable that like most quarrels, both sides are at fault. If the people of Burrows will abide by the decision a Journal representative will visit that locality, hear all the conflicting statements and settle the difficulty in the interests of that harmony which, should exist in every civilized community. The citizens of Burrows should shake hands all around and quit. Commendable.

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. • * Tickets for the Military Band Concert are now on sale by the members of the band. • Tickets 50 cent?. : John HobliiHon'N Show Coming-. Mr. DeForest Davis, the genial general contra'ctor of John Robinson's- circus, is in the city in advance of the big united shows which will appeal 1 here, Friday, June 12th. Old Jol n Robinson is."in it" this year, and has added features to his show which places it right in the front rank. He has this year 500 people on his payroll, a hundred or more of tliern being handsome ballet dancers required in his grand spectacular production, "Solomon and the Queen ot Shebti," which is said to eclipse anything heretofore attempted ia that line.

There are rushers of two or more kinds. 'One goes around with a whew and blast and you feel in his presence like one feels when standing- close to a fast express train; he almost takes you off your feet. His hat is generally on the back of his head as he goes rushing in and around the place of business. Once in awhile he knows what he is about, but most of the time is looking up some mistake he has made when rushing things through at break-neck speed; oftener it takes longer to undo what he has done than to have gone slower and done it right the first time. Mistakes are the rule instead of the exception. This is the man you want to watch out for. In his place get some one who has his business all well arrang-ed to start with. He always poes at a moderate speed; his hat is always sitting squarely on his head, showing that his head is square and level. He never rushes.but is always busy,going- around among his men quietl r, but being always there; the system that glides his every action makes every stroke of work count. There are no mistakes made; the work has not to be done over ag-ain, which takes up more time than to do it rig-ht the first time. This is the rushing- kind you want to watch out for, too, and when he comes your way you be sure to secure his services. It is not the man that shouts the loud- eet that shows the best results. The quiet worker, who always his work planned out and works by rule, and is always in his place to see that the work goes steadily and smoothly on, is the one who will accomplish the greatest amount of work in a given time. The real rusher is the man who understands his work thoroughly in every minute particular and can right anything that is going wrong in a very short time. He arranges everything- to a nicety and everything- is kept moriug'. This is the rusher that you business men are watching- out for if your heads are clear. —National Labor Tribune—A Last EesorL— She—"I am thinking of buying- a typewriting- machine.

FACTS STATED. A Woman Kills the Man Who Ruined Her Daughter, He Wi,s Her Husband, and His Victim Was His Stepdaughter, the Child of His Dead Brother. SHOT DOWN 1ST JAIT.. CHICAGO, May 11.—Alfred Towsley, in jail at Austin charged with disorderly conduct,, was' shot and killed in his cell by his wife Saturday ufternoon. Towsley, who had the reputation of being- a crook, confidence man, etc., and had served several terms in various prisons, twelve years ago married the widow of his brother, who had a daughter, now about IS years of af^e. As the girl advanced in years Mrs. Towsley became aware of her husband's efforts to ruin his stepchild and separated from him, she removing to Lafayette, and sending- the- girl to relatives in Austin, this county, in order to shield her from Towsley's persecutions. The latter discovered the young lady's whereabouts, and on Friday evening raised a disturbance at the residence of her friends by trying to secure an interview. He was arrested and placed in a cell in the village jail. In the meantime the daughter confessed to her aunt that Towsley had, several years ago, through fear and force accomplished her ruin. Word was at once sent to Mrs. Towsley at Lafayette and she arrived here Saturday to prosecute the charge against her husband. Going to the jail she confronted her husband, who was sitting in his cell, with the terrible information she had obtained- The man merely laughed at her and boasted of his actions toward her daughter, saying that he would take her away with him when released. Frenzied by grief and passion the woman suddenly drew a revolver, and while the wretch begged her for mercy shot him twice, killing him almost instantly. She then gave herself up to the officers of the law and is held to await the verdict of the coroner's jury.

It Is Sustained by a Decision of the Indiana Supreme Count. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., May 11.—The supreme court of Indiana has sustained the new law limiting a day's work to eight hours. The complainant in the case, John Griswell, testified that he had worked for the Noel Flour and Feed Company ten * months for the agreed sum of 81.25 a day. That during that time he was kept busy eleven hours a day. When he was discharged he demanded pay for the extra hours, and under the court's decision he recovered the amount claimed. The court holds that unless there is an expressed agreement to the contrary, employes who are required to work more than •eight hours a day must be paid extra. A Clam's Gold King.
