An Important Notice. Nisw YORK, Jan. 8, 1898. To Theatrical Managers and Dramatic Editors: Owing to numerous misrepresentations that are being made in regard to James A.

DESTROYED THE WORKS Mace's Saloon at Young molished. America De- Citizens of That Quiet Tillage Enraged With the Way the Place Was Conducted. Young America comes to the front with a sensation that places it in the front rank with the saloon-smashing town of Burlington. W. F. K'ace.has been running a saloon In that town for a year, and the citizens became enraged at the manner in which he conducted his joint. Their i age took definite form Tuesday night. A crowd of the best citizens of Young America went to Nace's saloon at a late hour Tuesday night, armed with axes,sledge hammers and guns and completely demolished everything in sight. Parties stationed themselves at the doors and windows of Nace's residence, which is right by his saloon, and whenever a face was shown a gun was discharged until finally they were intimidated and kept well out of sight. Meanwhile the saloon door had been smashed in'- and the counter, tables, chairs and fixtures were ATTEND THE Great Muslin Underwear Sale WHICH IS NOW GOING ON AT THE GOLDEN RULE. TO BE REVIVED. knocked to pieces and piled up in the middle of the room. Glasses and bottles were broken, beer kegs stoved in and nothing was left whole. After the wrecking business was completed the citizens issued an edict tbat hereafter no saloon would be allowed to exist in Young America. It Is not known whether the men were masked or not, or what course Nace will pursue. STILL IN EXISTENCE. The Old State National ( Bank Elects ' r; aew Officers'. An item of news that the Logansport newspapers failed to get was the election of officers for the State National bank. That bank is still in existence and will be until its affairs are settled up. At the annual election of officers a few days ago, W. H.Snider was made president of the bank, George- W. Bishop, of Walton, vice president, acd Harry S. Elliott, cashier. The bank has a lot of assets that are considered good and the organisa- tion will be maintained until a final adjustment of the affairs of the bank is made. Uumerous-sults are pending and it is expected that enough money will be collected to pay off all the liabilities of the bank and leave a balance to be divided among the stockholders. The City National bank did not buy all the assets of the old bank. Neither did it assume all the liabilities. CHICAGO MARKETS Recelred Dally by W. W. Mllmer, 6. A. R.

Rxnn., Capt, The Loganeport & Indianapolis Railroad Not Dead—Bailroad fiews. Indianapolis News: An effort will be made soon to bring up the old Indian* polls, Logansport & Chicago railroad scheme, In which several local.-capitalists are Interested. The company has been trying for several years to get the right o£. way to the streets ot the city, In order to use tbe Union station, but the other railroads have been powerful enough to defeat the attempt, though the Big Four did agree to let the company use Its tracks on the mileage basis. Some of; the original promoters of the scheme say that if the city had granted the desired permission the trains would have been .running over tde road by this time, as the company had sufficient backing to build the line at tbat time. KAILBOAD NEWS. The Goodman Automatic Car Brake company, composed of Chicago and Lafayette business men, will lo-. catfi a plant at Anderson. The Pennsylvania ahops at Indianapolis have received an extra allowance for January, and there Is more work going on there than for several months. Panhandle conductors are now charged with the responsibility of the proper heating and ventilation of all passenger carj, including Pullmans, handled on their trains. A recent order stat.es that there has been negligence in this matter. Since .the first of the year all roads continue to report Increases, as compared with the corresponding period of 1897. Eighty roads, (or the first week of January, report gross earnings o£ $6,762,436, an increase, as compared wita toe first week of 1897, of $1,045,328, or 18.28 per cent. The lease by whicn ths Plttsburg, Cincinnati, Chicago &St. Louis operates the Little Miami is said to be the best for the owners of the property of any railroad contract of that character now existing, pleasing the Little Miami owners much better than it does the Pennsylvania company, the leeaers. ' The proper officials of the Panhandle hava ordered twelve coaches and three combination .cars built at once at ,tue shops in Columbus. It Is stated to at the hew. equipment will be put in service over the Pennsylvania line between Louisville and Chicago via Indianapolis, and between Cincinnati and Chicago via klchmond. . Some months ago the Pennsylvania road built at its shops in Junlata five locomotives of the consolidated type, introducing several new features,and so powerful and fast with Heavy trains have these engines proved that fivs more are to be built at once. They h.tal from ten to fifteen more cars than any engine used before, and at raueii higher speed. The Pharos is in receipt-of one of the 189S calendars is'sued-by the Like Shore & Michigan Southern railway, which'Is probably one of the most unique ever priaced, it being made to represent a government mall pouch—the road's trade mark.

The suit wherein the Pennsylvania company seeks oo prevent 'the city of Lima, Ohio, from Issuing 898,000 in arlc bonds will come up for a hearing before Judge Hammond at Toledo next month. The Pennsylvania al- legta'that the money received from these bonds is to be given the Gin- cinnati, Hamilton & Dayton and the Detroit & Lima Northern railroads for shop purposes. The authorities ol the city agreed to release the Pennsylvania company from a portion of the tues providing it would withdraw the suit, but It secured a temporary injunction, and the coming suit will decide whether it shall, be permanent.

Their Educational Value M ]Jipl»inrd by «. Well Known Southern Authority. Professor Massey of the North Carolina state experiment station writes on "How Institutes Have Educated Farmers" in The Farmers' Institute Bulletin. Following are extracts from his paper: Among all the educational agencies of modern times in tbe line of whaD is known as university extension the farmers' institutes have been most influential. The progress that 1ms been made in the study of commercial fertilizers and their proper use during the last 15 years is a surprise to those who have not watched tbe course of events. Years ago farmers, as soon as they began to think at all about tbe manuria). needs of the soil, jumped at once 141 tbe conclusion that the one tiling necessary to be done was to get a chemist; to analyze their soil for them and tell them what it needed. They bad an indistinct sort of notion that there were certain things needed to make plants grow, but jiwt wbat these things were they imagined tbat only a cbemist could tell. .But the chemists at the institutes explained to them just what things were needed for the growth of plants and -taught, them that these things were not always iu a. state in the soil in which plants could use them, and that, while a chemical analysis might show them tbat the Deeded elements were in a soil, they might be there in such a shape tfaac plants could not get them and that frequently it might be better to apply these things in a fertilizer than to wait for the slow purposes of nature to give them from the soil. When manufacturers of artificial fertilizers first began to prepare special fertilizers for different crops, tbey were looked upon as quacks, and intelligent men called the practice humbuggery and said that a fertilizer tbat was good for oca crop was just as good for all. But tbe chemists have learned that these makers of special fertilizers were right, and now we all pay more attention to the needs of the plants we are growing than to the soil in which they grow. Farmers have learned, too, that while the three things essential to plant life—nitrogen, potash and phosphoric acid—which are generally deficient in old soils, make a complete fertilizer they must be in varying percentages to meet the demands of different crops, and the recent discoveries concerning the way in wiicb certain plants of the pea family get nitrogen for themselves and the succeeding crop, too, if well supplied with potash and phosphoric acid, have shown them that tbey need not in all cases use the complete fertilizer at all, but tbat for the ordinary farm crops they can get the nitrogen without money and without price if they use tbe mineral plant food to grow the legumes. The fanners are rapidly learning that they have been often defrauded in the purchase of ready made fertilizers by paying for nitrogen tbat is of no cse to tbe plants because of its insolubk- condition, and that for special crops tbey have got to have a higher percentage of some of tbe elements than any of cbc ready made fertilizers sn^nly. Hence we find farmers all ever ihe country, particularly in sections devoted to vhe cnltare of market vegetables and tobacco, mixing tbeir own fertilizers, and thus making snre tbat they have what they need. They have learned, too, tbat while a crop may need potash particularly they cannot expect the potash to have the desired effect if there is a deficiency of nitrogen and prof-pboric acid either in the soil or in tbe fertilizer used, and that to get the best results from the use of any one of the forms of plant food there must be either in the soil or supplied to it artificially a dne percentage of the other elements. They have learned that while a plant like tobacco needs a large percentage of poiash ia a fertilizer it wants it in the forra of a sulphate, and they look particularly into the form, of the potash in a miied fertilizer. And this general diffnsicsa of intelligence in regard to fertilizers and their action, in plant life is doe to th<» institutes more than to sny other agency. Immaculate Is the mark of tbe gentleitu.

This year small potatoes have found a ready sale, and thousands of bushels that in otber years would not have been sent have been sold early at fair prices. Thousands of bushels that in other years were fed to stock or thrown away have this year been saved and used for homo consumption, thus leaving free for market as many more bushels of good potatoes. All over the south farmers and gardeners are planning for an immense early crop, which will begin to come before the old stoc'k is fully cleared up. The chances are fair, therefore, that the farmers who are holding their potatoe* in expectation of a high price in March or April' may be disappointed.—Rural .Mew Yorker. 1 Btoff Cholarm. A western exchange quotes H. H. Hinds, president of tbe Michigan staM live stock sanitary commission, as saying: "It is tbe most highly contagions disease, and we don't know how to suppress it. The boots of farmers and the feet of stock may carry the germs front an infected herd to a herd miles away. Wbere infected hogs run down to » stream to drink the germs will be 'carried along that stream clear to tbe oceftM, I might say. "While we don't know bow to snp- '• press tbe conditions demand tbe adoption of such sanitary and quarantine measures as will protect tbe herds. One of these measures is to practically stop the trade in swine between farmers. Another is to quarantine the herds on the farms, especiaU.y if infected. "A third is to stop dogs running through the environments of herds, for they oarv ry the germs with them. In marketing hogs they should be drawn to market; not driven «k>ng the highway. Tfo . man who has cholera in his herd should drive the well hogs into a new environment, leaving the side ones behind. There are scores of so called choleM onres, but I want to warn yon that DOM of them cures." Now is the Time to Bay Shoes Cheap. Men's 15.00. Leather Lined Shoes for 13.
