A barn belonging to James Newer of Deer Creek township, burned to the ground Wednesday together with its contents, entailing a loss of about §1,000, with no insurance. Wednesday evening at S o'clockvat the residence of the bride's parents on High street, Miss Mary Smith was united in marriage to Mr. Chas. Brooks of the North Side, Rev. W. S. Boston officiating. The work of putting in new cement pavements is progressing rapidly " and Broadway .and North street will shortly be paved according to the ordinance. Broadway is to be paved to 21st street and North street -to Seventeenth street. Richmond Telegram: Conductor George M. Safford has turned up, looking like a sockless, barefooted monk. He failed to get on 'his train when he got oft at Greensfork, to assist a lady passenger in alighting, and they ran to Millville' before they missed him. After much agitation of the mutter Delphi has at last decided to put in a water works plant and the contract for the same has been let. The plant will cost not less than $40,000 and water will be gotten from springs three miles east of the town. Del- pblans are to be congratulated upon this progressive movement. Godfrey T wells had a narrow- escape last evening. While driving with his dray up Wabash avenue his mules frightened and started to run, throwing Mr. Twells off the dray and bruising him up considerably. This runaway excited a team belonging to George Palmer and a double runaway resulted. The latter team however, created no damage." Mr. Twell's mules were stopped after an exciting run. A new sort of "electric light bug" has come to notice. Last night the pavements underneath the down, town lights presented the appearance of being strewn with crushed grapes, and pedestrians trod gingerly as they walked over the slippery obstructions. On closer inspection the "grapes'" were seen to be a sort of beetle, nearly round and about the size and color of a grape. Thousands were crushed underfoot. The bug is something new here. The Military Band gave a delightful open air concert last evening. The boys are playing better and better every day and the concert they will shortly give for the purpose of procuring funds for new uniforms will be a musical event of considerable significance. The effort on. the part of the band to purchase new regulation uniforms is deserving the encouragement and support of the people of Logansport, as the band is. an organization in which every citizen takes a just pride. Mortality Among; JLawyerw. May 14, 1878, the Daily Graphic of New York City, published the portraits of twenty-five of the eminent lawyers of Indiana. The following were the names: *Thomas A. Hendricks, Benjamin Harrison, Thomas M. Browne, 'Conrad Baker, Jos. E. McDonald, Daniel P. Baldwin, "John A. Stein, John R. Coffroth, *John U. Pettit, Charles Denby, *0scar B. Hord, *Satnuel E. Perkins, George V. Howk, *James L. Worden, "Horatie C. Newcomb, *Asa Iglehart, James M. Shackleford, *Abram W. Hendricks, *Andrew L. Osborn, Addison C. Harris, *J. W. Gordon, *Satnuel H. Buskirk, Alexander Dowling, *Francis Wilson, *Jos. A. S. Mitchell. The * indicates that fifteen out of the twenty-five have died during the last thirteen years. In 1878 all these were vigorous men. Of the ten survivors only three, Alexander Dowling, of .New Albany, A. C. Harris and J. E. McDonald, of Indianapolis, are still in the practive. D, P. Baldwin and John R. Coffoth have retired and are living lives of leisure, Benjamen Harrison, Charles Denby and J. M. Shaekelford are in the U. S. government service, Thomas M. Browne is an invalid and gare up his place in Congress last March on account of ill health. Geo. V. Howk is Circuit Judge at New Albany. Lawyers are not long lived men. They work hard and die com- paritively young. Ex-Senator McDonald seems to be an exception. He is past serenty and still hard at work. Of our Logansport bar Judge Stuart and Senator Pratt both died at sixty-three. Judge Biddle ceased practice over 30 years ago. Judge N. O. Ross is past seventy but turns over the active hard work of his office to hia son George E. It requires a man of extraordinary physical health and strength to stand the wear and tear of our court rooms for over 30 yaars without a vacation on the bench or in some easier position. 1 lunik* Yesterday was the first anniversary of the establishment of a successful and energetic business firm ia our midst. On the 14th of May last year, Mr. Henry Schwier, for some years an energetic young • shoe clerk, made a departure on his own hook, and meeting the encouragement of his olders in the business bought out the Chicago shoe store, 403 Broadway, and completely renovated the stock, placing before the shoe buyers of Logans- •p'ort one of the best selected and finest stock of shoes ever brought to this city. Mr. Schwiev by careful attention to business, painstaking efforts to satisfy the demands of his discriminating customers, direct buying, quick sales and small profits, has in his one year of business built up a trade of which he may be proud. His motto is • 'Always the latest, sell cheaper and buy direct" acid acting on this policy has prospered beyond his expectations. Mr. Schweiris assisted by his brother, Mr. John Schweir whose experience of ten years in the dry goods line gives him an insight into the needs of purchasers. The combination is a good one and will further 'prosper. The Military band learning of this anniversary gave Mr. Schwier and his force of clerks a pleasant senerade last evening. In this connection Mr. Schwier desires to extend thanks to his friends for past favors and hopes for a continuance of their esteemed patronage in the future. An Edltor'M Wonderful Boy. Mr. S. L. Smith, the editor of the Silver Lake Signal, at Silver Lake, a little town in Kosiouska county, is the father of a child who is creating a jreat deal of excitement in his neighborhood by his wonderful and astonishing powers of what the father is inclined to think is mesmerism. The boy is almost seven years of age, and is capable even now of performing any Of the feats of the famous Davenport brothers—rope-tying, chained box trick, table rapping, reading sealed letters, slate writing moving tables with heavy weights on them, etc. The little fellow may be bound hand and foot and neck to a chair, and in five seconds will liberate himself without untying a single knot, no matter how securely he is bound. These, and many other mysterious feats which he performs, have given him the title of 'Spirit Child." His powers are all natural, having been in no way developed. _ Probably a Mistake. A Marion special says: 1 'Simon Mowery, an inmate of the Soldiers' Home here, severed his windpipe, last night vvith a penknife, andj died this morning. He had pre- •viously attempted to sever an artery in an arm, but failed. He came from Logan sport about a week ago, and was supposed to be insane. No other reason for the act is assigned." Diligent inquiry here failed to reveal any knowledge of Simon Mowery and it is believed that there is a mistake some place in the above bit of news.
