Mr. Graffis has received a letter from the opticians declaring that the final operation had been, successfully performed and thatMrs. Grams'sight would be fully restored. By a recent copy of an Anaconda, Montana paper it is-sees that Mr, Redmond, a brother of Mr. J. E. Redmond,,, of this city, was elevated to the honorable office of Mayor. Mayor Redmond is engaged in the smelting business at that place and the rattling majority he received attests his personal popularity. He headed the labor-citizen's ticket which was elected with a hurrah. Judge Burson was occupied yesterday in hearing the - arguments in the Barnett-Clark case. The arguments of D. C. Justice, F. M. Kistler and J. An Incident of the Inguuo Asylum. The concluding feature of the exer- cases attending the National conference of Charities and Correction at Indianapolis this week was'"An Incident of the Insane Asylum,' 1 given by James Whitcomb Riley in his inimitable manner. It was a character sketch, and the features and incidents' from whijh the story was woven came' under the notice of the story-teller himself. The narrative was that of .a. German- who came to Mr. Rily's native [town when Indiana's poet was- twelve yerrs of age. The newcomer was a shoemaker, with three children, Gustie, Frankie and Ji sie. Ha had an unpronounceable name and was called "Dutch Frank." There was that in him which drew the people to him, and with the children he was a favorite. He was thrifty and gradually added to.hi* possessions until he owned his workshop, dwelling and three tenement houses. Suddenly it was whispered about that "Dutch Frank" was insane. He would not speak to any one. Mr. Riley went round to his shop and found the German sitting on his bench sharpening shoe-pegs, but every device' failed to induce him to open his mouth. He had not a word for any one. A council of physicians was held, the result of which was that Dutch Frank was sent to the insane asylum. Fifteen years elapsed before he was restored to his reason and his work-bench. Five years ago Mr. Riley went back to his native town, and among the places visited was the shoe shop of his Teutonic friend. The latter gave to the poet an account of his hallucination and how he became possessed of -the idea that if he spoke he would be killed. At last his daughter Josie came to him and talked to him and he determined to speak to her and brave the wrath of the elements which he imagined were arrayed against him. With his declaration to his child of his unswerving affection aad devotion the strange spell •was broken and "Dutch Frank" walked out a free man. HOW RATS STEAL EGGS. Remnrkablo Intelligence of u Colony ot T«xa» Rodfnta. The town,.of Waco, Tex., is infested witTrrats in co'imtl'ess legions. They run through the.-streets, invade the stores and residences, devour grain, flour and groceries, and make themselves unmitigated nuisances, which -the application, of ordinary and extraordinary remedies has failed to remove. While they accept almost anything that comes in their way as edible, they burial takifag.;place,Qni'Mouday,-; : He was welLknown to-many residents of Clinton county;;:and.-yicinity,, r haying- Ideated in Carroll coanty r in 1832. C. Nelson,' were heard yesterday, and the case.will conclude this morning with the arguments of Q. A. Myers and"M. Winfield. There is a feeling- among- those who have watched the progress^ of this case that Mr. Barnett will reeorer the hotel property. The court has rendered judgment-on the finding of the jury in the injunction suit of. Caroline M. Barnhart ag-ainst August Gleitz and the city of Logansport, and the defendants are restrained from proceeding with the proposed improvement of Eel River avenue. This was a suit brought by the plaintiff to enjoin the city from widening the avenue at the expense of her property, the proposed, improvement, if carried out,, cutting into her lot. The street is to be 52 feet :wide with an 8 foot pavement. State. Fish Commissioner Dennis can find.plenty '.of material for his detectives to work on up in this neck *f the woods. The miscreants who are killing fish in Eel river by exploding dynamite in the water should be and probably 'will be captured as Col. Dennis is "pizen" on such rascals. •If caught the fellows engaged in the unlawful and ; vandal practice will be put in a sweat box from wjiich they will emerge considerably improved as to their ideas ab.out the wholesale destruction of fish. The people up the /river should , hunt the pirates down. The military Band Concert.

She went to laying again in two weeks and made her nest in another stall. Two eggs were in the nest, and these remained undisturbed, but when the third was laid it disappeared, two still remaining. I watched and saw. the rats come—four of them. '•The smallest of the quartette straddled his four legs over the eg-g, hugged it tight, then rolled over on its back, holding the egg tightly pressed against his belly. One rat took the prostrate one by the ears just like a boy holding the handles of a wheelbarrow and kept him steady, while the other two tooi him by the tail, and away they went, pushing and pulling until they got the egg to their hole under the brick wall." A. Kischner, one of the largest liqvfor dealers in Waco, has observed that there are sober rats, who never touch a drop; moderate drinkers, who take just enough, and regular sots, who get drunk every day, and possibly go home and beat their families. The drip from the beer faucets is where the rats do their drinking. Tin pans are kept under the faucets to catch the waste beer and protect the floor, aad to these pans the rats resort. The moderate drinker takes a sip or two, then wipes his whiskers on his front leg and gallops off. The old toper drinks deep, reels off to the backyard, falls-clumsily-into his hole, and the squeaking heard after he gets into his cellar indicates either that he is whin- ping his wife or she him, or that he is making her rush after remedies.

A sea captain, who was going -P to Albany to see his friends, came out with us on the train, and a Chicago broker, who first discerned his presence, gave the boys the wink, and followed it up by saying r : "If we wcrk it right we can get some awful lies out of liirn. Let some one ask him about sharks and sea serpents." Four of us crowded him into a smoking compartment, and when we had become slightly acquainted the inquiry was made: "Captain, you have doubtless seen some very large whales. How .long would you say the largest was?" "Gentlemen, I never saw a whale in' my life," he replied. "I have been at sea for twenty-six years, but I never happened to see a whale." "Well, you have seen serpents in the warm seas?" "Never saw one there." "But you must have seen some extra large sharks?" "Gentlemen, I hope you will believe me when I tell you that I never saw a shark except in an aquarium." "But you have been wrecked?" ' 'Nevfr." . "Ever have a mutiny?" "No." "Fire at sea?'' • "No." "Meet with a pirate?" "No." "Tidal wave?" •• "No." "Humph! What sort of a sailor are you, any way?" "I'm sorry for you, gentlemen, very sorry, but the fact is I am only a plain, every-clay sailor, and my mother made me take a vow when I first went to sea that I wo:ild always speak the truth. Here are some good nickel cigars for you, but as for lying, I can't do it—not even about sea serpents."—N. Y. Sun. MANY FATAL FIRES.

BERLIN, May 14.—A miner named Wildner and' |J his" wife and two sons have been arrested at Witten,. Westphalia, charged with setting fire to the Helene pit, A number of disastrous fires are reported from various parts of Germany. At Zempelburg, Prussia, twenty-five houses were burned and a large number of cattle perished in barns. At Schwerin, near Posen, thirty-nine houses were destroyed and the families deprived of their homes have'taken refuge in the churches. In a conflagration at fleick- ershausen, a suburb of Cassel, which destroyed twelve dwellings, a woman »ad two children lost their lives. Wild JZiimo- from Mexico That tlie Chilian Hoat Had Been Sunk by the Charleston— The Keport Discredited by the OIHcmls at Washington. ST. Louis, Hay 14.—A special dispatch from the City of Mexico says that persistent rumors are in circulation that the United States cruiser Charleston overtook the Chilian vessel Itata on the high seas and a naval engagement had been fought, in which thi latter was worsted and blown out ol the water. Various additions to the first rumor are current. One story is that the Charleston fired on the Itata because the latter refused to heave to when ordered, and that the Chilian warship anwered by firing some of her small deck guns. Only a few shots had been fired when a shell from one of the Charleston's eight-inch guns exploded in the Itata's hold, and tha whole cargo of powder stored there exploded, blowing the Itata to fragments. Still another report says • that the Itata on being overhauled by the Charleston endeavored to es- citpe and only fired on the latter with her stern guns. A running fight was then kept up for several miles, when, a number of shots struck the Itata and sunk her. The fate of the crew is not known. The authorities here deny that they have received any official reports of the affair. WASHINGTON, May 14.—There is no news of the Itata or the Charleston at the navy department. No credence, is given to the report that the Charleston 1 has sunk the Itata-. In the first place it is said that news of such an event could only be received through the arrival of the Charleston at some port connected with the telegraph lines, which has not so far occurred. In the second place nobody supposes that the Itata would resist the Charleston, for she is totally unprepared- to do so and even if she attempted it the Charleston could readily subdue her force without resorting to the extreme measure of ''blowing her out of the water," as it is rumored • she has done. . __ Horses JSurucd to Death.
