Manager Patterson's benefit was not so well patronized as It should havo been In recognition of his efforts In procuring many good attractions during the season now drawing to a close. Frederic and Mario Murphy, two young artists of Indiana birth, made their first appearance before a Logans* port audience. They are beginners In theatrical lines, Mies Murphy,' who Is but fifteen years old, practically making her debut. In judging their production of "P/gmalion and Galatea" much al lowanoe must he made for this inexperience, While not displaying great talent, their acting In these ambitious parti at times showed much promise. The audience was well pleased with the little comedy "A Bed of Roses" which followed the heavier production. Hh«K«pt a Secret. Edward Stuoker, who is known here as Edward Stocker, ia declared by his wife, Eliza, who lives on Railroad street, to be a bigamist. She has had knowledge of It, the claims, since a short time after she became Mrs. Ed. Stucker, in 1890. They were married at Delphi by 'Squire J. H. Wilson. She says that Ed. told her of his alleged former marriage and failure to obtain a divorce. Stucker is supposed to be either at Poru or Manton, and hie wife Eliza, is inclined to obtain hla punishment for alleged bigamy. She claims that her tmsband made an attempt to sraln poi- •esiion of. their marriage license the last time he was In Logansport.

Many complaints of tbo stench arising from Routh's packing house on the south side of the Wabash rivor, led the Board to make an investigation of the eald premises. Tbe most offensive stench aroso from the use of crude oil in cleaning the boiler of the steam engine A separate, but nearly equally offensive smell was caused by cocking refuse left over from the Saturday before. Mr. Routh las promised'to discontinue both these ausesof offence, The old canal bed lying west of Sycamore street is a constant menace to the health of tho city, on account of the large quantity of stagnant water that has no escape. The Van. dalia authorities express a will- ngnefs to pay their share or constructing a suitable ewer, and the Board of Health earn- istly recommends that Immediate teps be taken to draw off this stagnant water, and lay a sewer that shall effectually prevent the collection of a similar body.

What is called by some a new disease ,was developed in the Lake Eric grape region of western Ne^ 1 York last year. The Grape Belt discusses it at length. It is the unaccountable falling off of berries before or as soon as they have attained their full size. Profs. Bailey and Lodeman, of Cornell university, have investigated the matter at length. Dry weather at the critical time seems to have been the chief cause, though, this was made more injurious by lack of potash. It is well known that vines require a large amount of potash in ripening their fruit. If potash is deficient and wet weather follows, the grape mildews or rots. If tliere is too little moisture for mildew tho berries drop from their cluster. In some vineyards last year the loss.by shelling was fifty per cent, of the crop; in others it was not more than five per cent. The dropping of tho berries came on late in August and early in September. Vines which shell their crapes almost invariably have leaf blight, brown patches appearing 1 on the leaves. As the grape is nourished through the leaves the dropping of the berries from the cluster was an indication that the vine had undertaken a bigger job than it could finish. Even those grapes which remained on vines where tho shelling was worst were of poor quality, though they grew to full size. GARDEN AND ORCHARD. Do NOT plant an orchard on poor soil. Trees must have food. WHEN near a good market string beans, peas and sweet corn are profitable. RJ^PBEKKIES, currants, gooseberries and small fruits generally will profitably respond to an application of phosphates. IT is said that pruning potatoes to two stalks in the hill has produced larger tubers and a greater yield. This is done on the theory that we prune vines and trees and pinch back melons and tomatoes. The theory is all right. Too much energy can go into tops.— Farmer's Voice. William F Maier. IS Pa.:k illo, Oaio, writes: "About a year e.g-o 1 baa 10 quit work on account of rheumatism. I had the disease la my hips, back and arms, in fact, ID, . every joint in my body. The pain was iatecss, and I suffered the mod excruciating agony. My doctor could ; not do anything for me, and I tiled every remedy that could be suggested; nono of them did me any good, and finally my joints became sli/fened and sore. At times I could not move my! right arm, and was In constant pain. I procured a bottle of Munyon's Rheumatism Curn, and within a short while was completely cured. I an ! free from stiffness scd pain, and can cheerfully recommend Munyon'a Rem- j edy aa the best I have ever known." Munyon's Rheumatism Cure acts almost instantaneously.curing 1 many obstinate cases in a few hours. It is guaranteed to euro rheumatism in any part of the body. Acute or muscular rheumatism cured in from one to five days. It never fails to cure sharp. shooting pains in the arms, legs, aide, back or breast, or soreness of any part of the body in from one to three hours. It promptly cures lameness, stiff and swollen joints, and all pains in ihe hips and loins, chronic rheumatism, uciatloa, lumbago or pain In the back are speedily cured. It eel- dom fails to give relief after one or two doses, and almost invariably cures before one bottle has been used. Munyon's Homoeopathic Home Remedy Company of Philadelphia, put up specifics for nearly every disease, . which are sold by all druggists. ' mostly for 25 cents a bottle. A LAND WITHOUT STONE.

Flnt Dwillcn In Babylonia W«r» Forcsd ; to Make Brick*. When men first settled in Babylonia there was no stone. "Dig- where you will," say Chipiezand Perrot, "you will not find a stone in the country, fron\ Bagdad to the sea, larger than a nut." But they found ready to their hands In the river most abundant materials for making- bricks, with which their temples and towns were built. This clay they mixed with chopped straw. In some cases they merely dried tho bricks in the sun, and such was the consistency of the clay that it is even now difficult to break these bricks. In other cases they were burnt. In the case of the burnt bricks they intercalated layers of reeds, and bound them together by bitumen, instead of mortar. This was chiefly brought from Hit, on the Euphrates, where it still abounds. The bricks were beautifully made in molds, and in the normal pattern were about one foot square, four or five inches thick, and rectangular in shape, and sometimes triangnilar or otherwise formed; so as readily to make up into arches and vaults. Many of vbern bore the names of the early kings impressed upon them, aa may be seen in specimens in the British museum. lirickmaking 1 was truly aa important art in these early times. >Jme. De Sta^l't XV iu Mme. De Stael had fallen out with Viscount De Cholscul, owinjf to certain. malicious reports, circulated by the latter. One day the lady anil the viscount ; met in company, on which occasion .' good manners required that they should speak to each other. Mme.

TAmbassadricc, I Have been ill." . j "Seriously, monsieur?" - f "I had a narrow escape from being : poisoned," j "Alas! PossibJy yon took a bite at your own tongue." » ^ This joke fell like a tiranderbolt on i the viscount, who was a notorious back- i biter and mischief maker. The lesson was a severe one. bnt he richly deserved , it, and had not a word to say.
