Tlie Caute ol'Tlielr Jcivarly. Chicago Mail; "Your story about Senator Quay's trouble with his fountain and the small boy reminds me of a similar occurrence at Indianapolis many years ago," said an old newspaper man. . "A sharp rivarly always kas existed there between the Journal and the Sentinel, the representative journals of the t.vo great political parties. When Dick Bright secured control of the latter be determined to infuse new life into the paper and to rejuvenate the concern. As part of the new regimen he put in a fine fountain in front of the building and stocked the basin with goldfish—the largest and best fish o'f the kind that he could buy. Well, the Sentinel fountain was indeed a tbiog-of beauty and proved to be an excellent advertisement for the paper and its new maaagement. Admiring crowds visited it and praised the enterprise and public spirit of the men who had made its existence possible. Rumor had it that the opposition paper saw that fountain through a dark-green atmosphere of envy and regret. However, it is not to.be supposed for a moment that this feeling was strong 1 enough to be manifested in any open, practical manner. ••Butone morning when Bright came -down to the office he saw a sight which, nearly paralyzed him with astonishment and horror. Perched upon the rim of the basin were three ..little darkies—regulation little plantation chaps with bare legs, torn straw hats, and ragged clothes—who evidently were in the seventh heaven of delight. Each of them had a short stick from tbe end of which dangled a piece of twine, and bent pins served for fish- 'hooks. Several of the largest goldfish were flopping and gasping on the pavement near the fountain,-mute witnesses of the' efficiency of this rather primitive angliog apparatus. "At this point in the proceedings Mr. Bright said something, and said it so emphatically that the clock in the neighboring, church steeple stopped. Although the youngsteit swore positively that they were told that they could find first class fishing in the fountain 'by a man down by the udder newspapah offis,' the man himself could not be identified. But this angling incident was one of the prime causes of the fierce rivalry which long afterward existed between Ihe two papers." IK He Here? The following communication addressed to Msyor Cullen is'self explanatory: • . . May 10,1891. SIR:—I address you in regard to the whereabouts of a blind man, by name, W. H. LaRose, who is a son of mine and from whom I have had no tidings for years. Just of late I learned he lived IB.your city. If so, will you give me all the information- concerning him which may be in your power? Please grant my request and you will confer a lasting favor on a disconsolate mother. Respectfully Yours, MRS. M. WICKS, No. 229 Missouri St., Toledo, 0. In tli« Circuit Court. The evidence in tbe Barnett-Clark suit was closed yesterday shortly afternoon. As Judge Burson was compelled to go home yesterday afternoon the argument was postponed until afternoon to- day. The argument will-probably be concluded Friday morning.

The program araaaged for the Military band concert next Tuesday evening is replete with.' choice' musical selections introducing numerous entertaining musical specialties.

A Frenchman Devises the Much For Instrument: The portable telephone, for. which engineers, surveyors, army and navy people have been sighing for so long,' has come at last. And the strangest part of the invention is. tho fact that it was a Frenchman who evolved it, and not an American, as is usual in such. cases. M. Roulez, a^ French inventor, devised the instrument, and electricians everywhere are wondering- why someone never thought of it before. The great trouble in this direction of invention was to find something- to do away with the necessity of a battery. Magnets without number have been made for the purpose, but until the present time none has answered the requirement. M. Eoulez conceived the idea, of using two magnets with tha To Arbitrate Chili's Affairs. PARIS, May 13.—The Siecle says that in spite of the rupture, of negotiations between President Baliiaced'a and the, congressional party of Chili, France,the United States and Brazil intend -toiful- fill the task of arbitrating the matjers in dispute between the two contend- r ing factions. The Sieele adds that thiS Jj task will-be -undertaken "with every prospect of success. • . A-RMV PORTABLE TELEPHONE. same poles opposed and separated by a small bit of soft wire, instead of the old horeseshoe magnets with wire bobbins that have hitherto failed. With his new instrument the inventor claims results as perfect as-by the use of the stationary, return circuit telephone. It can be.carried in a small hand .bag-, requires no support except the head of the user, and can be applied at a- distance of 400 miles quite-successfully. The cut pictures the new instrument better than could any description. In use, the telephone is carried on the •head of the operator, the receivers remaining attached to his ears continually. Its use will be largely by surveyors and by advanced guards or pickets on reconnoitering duty. Vessels of a fleet at sea communicate with each other by the same means, a well insulated pair .of wires being kept floating above the xvater by suppewters or immersed by sinkers, as the occasion may require.
