English, Ind., Jan. 22.—One of the most disastrous floods ever known to English was felt Thursday night, when three of the five bridges ovw Line Blue river were washed away. Nine horses •within the corporation and a large number in the suburbs are reported drowned. A large number of fat hogs were lost. Nearly fifty persons on Court street bridge, when, the bridge was swept from Its moorings, were saved from drowning only by citizens risking their lives in the work o£ lifesaving. The town during the night was a. Dandemonium, with the cries of horses, cattle and hogs, turned loose by the owners, anl running at large in the streets.

MASONIC MUTUAL BENEFIT SOCIETY. Goes Into the Hands of A»s.ignees Because Meinbe::» Won't Pay. Indianapolis, Jan. 22.—The board of directors of the Masonic Mutual Benefit Society of Indis.na yesterday flled a deed of assignment, naming Irvin Robbins, of this city, and II. C. Megrew, manager of the concern, as assignees. The schedule of assets was filed in Wank. The concern has been in trouble for years, and is far behind in payments to claima.nts. The membership has shrunk to a.bout 1,900. It was organized in 1869 t.nder Masonic auspices, but the fraternity has repudiated the management. ):t was an assessment association. Claims already allowed but not paid amount to $50,COO; outstanding claims not allowed, U50.000; due from members, $54,000. If delinquents would pay assessments the managers say the concern could pay out. The assignees hava decided to issue a circular letter of Information to all concerned. A statement of the condition of the assets and liabilities will be made. The Masonic Mutual will be closed out and the assignees will suggest that all of its risks may be reinsured in seme other company. MINERAL WOOL FROM LIMJFSTOXE. Discovery Made by a Chemist In a Steel Plant at Anderson, Ind. Anderson, Ind., Jan. 22.—C. C. Hall, a St. L.ouls man brought to Alexandria to take charge oil the Union Steel company's chemical laboratory, has made a most remarkable discovery whereby he is enabled to convert limestone into mineral wool. In making experiments a, month ago in hopes of findingachem- Ical solution needed at the steel mill he found that certain kinds of limestone •were converted into a lava when subjected to chemical preparations and teat instead of becoming brittle. On this he began to work and has succeeded in making the purest white mineral wool that could be found. In a refined state it can be used in the finer textures and in the rough state it partakes of the nature of asbestos. Trial of a School! Teacher. Lebanon. Ind., Jan. 22.—C. C. Tansel, teacher of the Elizavtlle schools, recently had occasion to whip some of his girl pupils for misdemeanor. The girls retaliated by filing charges against him before Trustee Joseph Swope and County Superintendent B. H. Harney. The charges were three in number: First, that the punishment was unjust: second, that he was partial; third, that he had expressed the opinion that it was not necessary to go to church in order to get to heaven. The trial took place Thursday afternoon. The entire neighborhood turned out en masse. The last charge was dismissed because nc evidence was submitted to show that the opinion had been expressed in the schi»'. room. Tansel was acquitted o' the other charges. Saw Mill Destroyed by Fire.

No class of men have the public good so disinterestedly at heart as clergy men ;none others see so intimately the allairs of so many homes.

When winter sets in, the mist from the falls congeals and forms a mound or hill of ice, very steep and slippery. Steps are cut in the sido nearest the waterfall, and up this, clad in their picturesque "blanket" suits, a gay crowd climb, dragging their toboggans after them. Arrived at the top, they go whirling down the slope and out into the St. Lawrence river with frightful rapidity. The mound is so precipitous and rhe speed attained by the toboggan so great, that the slightest irregularity is apt to produce an upset, generally resulting in broken bones. Although the feat is extremely dangerous, it is the custom of Jean Dorval to visitf tho spot once each season and shoot tbe hill on Norwegian skis. The act is one of ex- tremo danger and hazard, but the plucky Norwegian has never failed to accomplish it successfully. HORSE RACING. Promising Ontlook for the Bit New York Events Next Year.

Ind., Jan. 22.—For weeks John O. Ratliff, of this city, has been secretly working on a mechanical device •which he claims will revolutionize the •world's machinery. Today he says that his invention is a perpetual motion machine, fashioned after the plan suggested by Edison as one that might be successful—a machine without a. center.

She held that Che poorer classes appreciated kindness and a big heart more than the abstract principles of the so-called reformers and would not give up their popular favorites unless some one suitable to their standards was put forward. The great evils which result from corruption in the municipal affairs of Chicago, she said, arise not so much from the fact that money is taken, from the public treasury, but from the fact that political ideas are becoming debauched and the true ideals of Democracy lowered.

Third, a coo«* consisting of three hours of gymnasium •work and one lecture on hygiene a- week should be required of the freshman class. This course should be obligatory, but should count as o half course toward tbe degree. Foldinc PedJiU. A Frenchman has invented a, folding pedal for bicycles.
