There Is a perennial freshness about Mr. Eterne's treatment of the love storl«s with which It Abounds. Love Is the keynote ot the play. Its personii|jes are pretty evenly divided between men and women, and nearly all of them have a love affair. Mr. Heroe could not write a play without a ba.by, it seems, and he has introduced a little tot in "The Hearthstone" very effectively. The scenery la picturesque, and the osat perfection.

"Nlckum, the Logansport man who invented the celebrated light which has set the scientific world agog, has a worthy rival in Mr. Lay ton (Herod) Parkhurst,, of this city,"says the Lebanon Reporter. "Mr. Parkhurat claims to have Invented a llgbt, which, it not perpetual like Nickum'a, Is at least entitled to rank with it on account of Us phenomenal cheapness. The light is or chemical origin and is the result of much study and experiment. Mr. Parkhurst spent seven years In a drug store, where he gas'aered much Information concerning chemicals. ilnce then Mr. Parkfoarst his experimented faithfully and now claims to havs attained complete success He zealously guards the formula he uses and has so far refused numerous and flattering otters for it. A reservoir something ot the nature and size of an ordinary gas metsr is used to hold the chemicals. From this pipes are run to any place desired. An ordinary gas burner is used. The lighti burns in exactly the same way manufactured gas does. It differs from the gas in that it is steadier and whiter. Its main advantage over all other lights, however, Is its cheapness. Mr. Parkhurst claims that the test shot ws that seventeen cents worth of chemicals will burn 94ti hours in a five root burner. Mr. Psrkhurst also clallms that the explosive quality is two-thirds that of ordinary gas •'During the last week or so a number of men representing capital have been here Investigating the invention. The Kahlo Calcium Light company of St. Louis have already offered him big money for nip formula, but he has steadily refused. He believes he has a 'good thing' and is Inclined to 'push It along.' In all probability hoaae capital will take up the invention aed manage it." UNIFORH ODD FELLOWS. Large Delegation 6oea to Lafayette Thi» Morning.

X KAYS Of a Searching Inquiry to Onto be Turned The A flairs of the Masonic Mutual Benefit society. Dr. I. Haas, of Evansville, has made arrangements to sue the officers of the Mason's Mutual Benefit society to compel them to submit to a complete examination of the books. The affairs of the company nave been In bad shape for Hen years, and since 1893 the policy holders have been unable to learn its actual condition. Dr. Haas has been a policy holder since 1872 and realized the desperate straits the society was In. He believed it could be put oa a firm basis if the aflatrs of the society were administered for tbe good of the beneficiaries of tbe policies and not for the sake of getting large salaries for the officers. He advocated this plan at the last regular meeting, but was voted down. Tne policy holders In good standing when the assignment was made numbered 1,496. They will not get a cent on the money they cave paid in as the 15,000 assets are not expected to more than pay court costs In winding up the affairs of tbe concern. The society once had many policy holders in LoganaporC, but on account ot the snaky condition of Its affairs In recent years, Its local membership had dwindled!. SUGAR BEET Talk by thf Logang]port Commercial and JUnofattmrlnf association. The Directors favorably Impressed With the W. D. Cralf Orer- all Factory. At the last meeting of the directors of the Logansport Commercial and Manufacturing association the f ues- tlon of sugar beet culture was discussed at length, and a committee was appointed to procure and distribute a sufficient quantity of seed among the farmers of the county to give a thorough test. The question ot giving proper encouragement to local industries was also given attention, so much so that the board inspected the W. D. iraig overall factory, at No. 208 Sixth street, yesterday afternoon, and were greatly pleased with the progress of that institution. New machinery has been added and over fifty people, principally girls, are employed. . The board were sj favor ; ibly impressed that substantial encouragement will likely be given that institution.

Pills The Founder of • School for Backward Children. Margaret Bancroft, the founder of the Haddonfield training school for mentally deficient and backward children occupies an enviable social and financial position through her success in a unique branch of teaching. She is now mistress of a large income through independently supporting and patting into practice her own theories. It is said that the guardians of Miss Bancroft's poorest pupil pay a tuition fee of no less than $1,000 per annum. Miss Bancroft in the beginning en- dared almost every discouragement belonging to reform—debt, disappointment, misfortune, lack of sympathy and co-operation. She found friends, however. Physicians were interested in her work, and Mr. George W. Guilds gave prominent space in the Philadelphia Ledger to an article treating of her methods of teaching. The first year she had only two pupils. The third year showed an advance in number. In iSSS the school had grown to such an extent that Miss Bancroft was advised to find an assistant. She was then fortunate enough to secure the gen-ices of Miss Jean W. Cos, a <lady experienced in kindergarten work aud learned ill the art of ministering to diseased minds and bodies. And now these two ladies are earnest and able partners in their kindred work. The location of the school was changed many times to secure larger and better quarters. In 1892 its home was entirely destroyed by fire. The two brave women who had it in charge were left resonrceless as to the means of procuring another. In 48 hours, however, their little family was established at Atlantic City, and Miss Bancroft was looking about her for other quarters. Mr, Charles Lippincott of Philadelphia, having heard of her work, offered to buy The Lindens, in Haddonfield, as a home for the school in return for the life care of his afflicted daughter. His offer was gladly accepted, and this beautiful home amid its spacious grounds now shelters Miss Bancroft, her teachers, young governesses, attendants and 17 children whose brains are deficient and some of whose bodies are crippled and deformed. Miss Bancroft has the assistance of the medical officers of the American Institution For the Feeble Minded and sends to them each year a paper on her work. Though her pupils will perhaps never n?ed a calling, having for the most part rich parents or guardians, yet they are trained .to be self helpful. Their studies embrace all the ordinary school subjects and manual training. The principal prefers to accept pupils at a tender age, so as to better sound their possibilities for growing up to MARGAKEt BANCROFT. teke their place among normal brains. She has one little boy for whom she hopes all normal possibilities in about three years. She might have hoped the same thing with reason of a girl of 17 but that she came under her tuition when her mind was set in its infirmity. Every child that opens its eyes to the world is put among us for a purpose, and simple minded children have grown with assistance and good care to be world geniuses. There are famouu examples adorning onr present day. Besides a very excellent business woman, whose brains, hard worked, have brought her to her present position, I regard Margaret Bancroft as a philanthropist and public benefactor. The proper education of children, be they what they may, is the one way tc> save future generations the mistakes aod ills of the present. In addition to the onrse of ill assorted marriages and bad habits Miss Bancroft attributes idiocy to the fact that not enongh care is taken with the diet of growing girls—they are not given food containing sufficient brain nutriment. My subject is a member of the American Society For Backward and. Feeble Minded Children and a strong supporter of the movement for smaller state schools. She believes that schools of 1,000 could be practically supported if divided into five smaller ones. In large schools the good accomplished is little and the barm and failure a defeat of their very purpose. '' My school,'' said my hostess, "is large enough, but I have started a fund to cover the expenses of a few poor children whom I wish to have under my care. As it is, I care for and have been caring for at least one child whose parents cannot afford to meet the expenses of my train- Ing. I want to care for more." Margaret Bancroft is a Daughter of the Revolution and can also lay claim to being a Colonial Dame. Her father was a cousin to John Bright, So the reform blood is in her. Her school has not only become an" object of admiration, but just what she has intended—a public incentive to work in smaller channels. T-TlJJAJt A- Origin of Wtddinr Present*.
