The truthfulness of the old adage, "Nothing succeeds like success," has been demonstrated fully in toe kin dergarten movement In this city, i charity not yet two years old. In September a free school was opened on Twelfth street; the attendance has steadily increased and at this time there is an enrollment of sixty children in this class. Miss India Kandall, with three assistants, have been most successful in conducting this large class. The demand has been urgent for some time for free schools on the Northside and Southaide, aad only for the lack of funds and teachers, schools in these localities would have been opened last September. The ladles rejoice that with the co-operation of the good people Interested ia the Sunday- school missions In ubese respective localities, they see tbelr way clear to open schools on Mondav morning next—Jan. 31—In the Baptist mission room on the Scmthslde and In the Trinity mission room on the Northslde. Teachers will be at these places by 8 o'clock iklonday morning- to receive all children who may come —the eligible age being between the years of three and six—and all children who are not able to pay tuition will be taken free into these schools. In this growing work, the need of teachers is apparent; at the present time there are seven teachers in the training school, five of these young women give their time for the train, ing and practical experience which Is gained in the braining school. Miss Nichol has charge of this school and each afternoon of the week is devoted to theoretical instruction. Young women willing to devote their time and wishing the kindergarten training, are earnestly solicited to apply to Miss Nichol at her quarters la the library building, or to any of the ladies of the board. The association is in need of small working tables and chairs, and donations of money will be moat gratefully re- received. MRS. MTBRS, Sec'y., F K. A. SUPPOSE!) MYSTERY Hon.

HISKEY DISK, Cissj's a Hit, Kit. I Don't Explained and the Minds of the Carious arc Again at Rest. Considerable comment has been caused ID the past week by the fact that the millinery store of Mrs. Charlotte Tucker, on -Market street, near McCaffrey's grocery, was locked up and a large dog imprisoned therein that barked and carried on as If something terrible was happening. People were mystified, and the police were called on more than once, but they found by looting In at the windows that evervthlng appeared to be all right. The supposed mystery was explained this morning, when tne proprietress appeared on the scene and opened up her place of business. It turns out that she had been on a visit to Cleveland, and as a matter of precaution, had locked the dog in the store to prevent burglary. Each day the animal was given water and food by Mni. Mary Hare. Its barking and wll(( demonstrations were doubtless caused by its desire to get out, or from seeing strange faces at the doors and windows. Smoke the Cnlxunbin cigar Wink, Made Think, Soft-headed cHtics of the m&tro- illtan press, ha"ing Indulged In a world of gush concerning Cissy Fltz- eraid and her wink, naturally a arge per cent of the theatre patroas f Logansporc took advantage of the first opportunity to see both, and It might be well said here and now that neither Sissy nor her wink could ever again win a cent in this neck o 1 woods. There is really nothing to recommend Cissy. She Is fairly good looking, bat she cao't sing, and her dancing ia absolutely awkward in comparison to that of many of the hlgh-kickingaort who visited this city. Just why her name should appear on the bills In capital letters while those of the real artists are printed in lower case, is one of the things theatrical that can't be explained. "The Foundling r is a good comedy and It was well played. The dialogues and situations are very funny. Charles E. Lothian, as Dick Peniuet, the foundling; Thomas Burns, as Major Cotton; Laura Booth, as Mrs. Cotton, and Lucille Le Verne, as Miss TJsher, played their parts well. A comedlette entitled, "A Ha.ppy Pair,' 1 served as a pleasing curtain raiser. It was cleverly presented by Mr. Lothian and Miss Le Verne. Two Drainage Commissioner*.

FOE LITTLE FOLKS. NUTTING WITH RACCOONS. How » >"ew Jersey Man Ha» Solved th« Problem of Gathering Chestnuts- A correspondent of the Philadelphia Times says that Reuben White of Bin- goes, N. J., has tamed six coons and trained them to gather chestnuts. When "White sets out in the morning on a chestnutting trip, the coons follow him like a pack of dogs, and when a tree is reached White sets a basket with low sides on the ground and, snapping his fingers and waving his hands in different directions, sets the coons to work. The animals spread out and range over every inch of the ground, pawing over the leaves and sniffing like dogs on the scent of prey. When a ooon rnns across a nut, he snaps it up with his lips and stows it away inside his mouth like a chipmunk. The animal has a capacity for carrying about half a pint of chestnuts in his month, and when the limit is reached he trots to the basket and drops them into it. The hunt is kept up until the ground has been thoroughly searched. In the meantime White is pelting the tree with clubs, and when clubbing fails the coons are sent up to shake the tree. At an order to go up the animals traverse every limb, going to the tips of the small branches and shaking them vigorously. When they have gone over the tree, there arci not nuts enough left on it to fill a qusxt; cup. White says that when the season for chestnuts is good he can gather focr bushels a day with his sis coons, and when the market is ordinarily good that means between $10 and $12. He calculates that each coon is worth to him aboot $60 a year. Youngest of Trick Rider*. The youngest trick rider in the world is said to be Master Arthur Czekowski, a 6-year-old Berlin boy. "Little Arthur," as be is called, fell into the trick riding habit by accident, so to speak. His father is an acrobat and juggler, but bad no intention of having his son follow in his footsteps. On<3 day, however, before the small boy IT AN ADVANCED AGE. Mother of D. B. and S. T. HcConnell Dead at Indianapolis. Mrs. Sarah D.

"Why, my dear, do yon want an apple for her?" "Because yesterday she stole mine from my basket, and I don't want to tempt her today;-so I am going to give her one." The child did so, and soon Jane Woods brought the apple to her and asked her to take it, as she stole one from her tie day before and wanted to pay it back. Jane did not take any apples again without a request to do so. A Slight Mistake. Little Johnny See startled his teacner the other day by announcing that his mother vras going to make an inquirium.
