The complete success of the people of Loganiport In the natural gas fight IB a matter for warm congratulation. Lafayette, it will be remembered, succumbed without a struggle and is now paying a much higher price for gas as a consequence. The people of Logansport won against heavy odds and won only by standing united and harmonious. A break In the council during the nght would have caused a break in the ranks also, and would probably have resulted in defeat. But there was no break and the people are saving fifty thousand dollars a year in their feel. To tho clt'zecs who'so nobly gave their time and money for the public good a debt of gratitude is due. They are entitled to kindly ^consideration always. They and the lessons that were taught through them ehouid not be forgotten. The people should remember what can be accomplished by earnest and harmonious action. They should remember how much depends upon their loyal support in troublous times. As far as the Journal's part is con. corned It has always appreciated the expressions of good will and friendship on the part of the public and It feels tbat In earnestly performing its duty to the public it has secured a place in public esteem which will greatly strengthen it In other battles for the public good. THE Delaware legislature succeeded in electing a United States Senator before adjourntcg and Col. Henry A. Dupont, the famous powder manufacturer, will ably fill the eeat made vacant by the expiration of the term of Anthony Higglns, The people of Delaware are to be congratulated on the defeat of Oas-Man Addioks. Governor Watson, who made a ridiculous attempt to serve as executive and State Senator at the same time, will probably name a Democrat as United Skates senator and a contest will ensue. Col. Dupont received 15 of the 29 votes oast and Is undoubtedly entitled to a seat In the United States Senate* THE civic federation of Chicago made a new and Important move against gambling Friday when the Hawthorne race track was raided and thirty bookmakers placed under arrest. The officers of the civic fed, oration §ay the raids will be continued until the race track form of gambling Is done away with. Now that the Roby track in this State has been closed up by the authorities Chicago sports who wager their money on the bang-tails consider themselves in hard luck.

Got» Into the Details of the Wen- dine Ring. Special Correspondence. , NiwYORZ May 8,1895. Everybody has been ffeUiof? married, and, consequently, everybody IB immensely intereated In the riog which doth wed these iwo people and endow one of them with all the worldly goods of the other. Sometimes the worldly goods are not worth having- ; Sometimes the amount ofljve given could be banaed by the golden-circlet, and 8ometim«B, and I think thu: la the ofteneet, there ia enou(fh»g r old and ecouffh love to make two people happy for a while at least. I have always been able ts understand the woman who loved to wear rings. She doesn't see a necklace, or a tiara, or a wonderful brooch; but when every, body is stupid, she can spread out her hands and find wonderful pleasure in the beautiful stones, and in the fact that they may make their background look even whiter than it is. I don't know which is the moat Important,the engagement or the wedding ring, but there is more romance about the first than the last. Nowadays every woman wears the same kind of a wedding ring, which has become a badge of honor. In America one occasionally sees a young girl wearing a plain gold ring, whiob, in my opinion, is in very bad lasts. In England, one looks at a woman's left hand and knows right away whether she is "the missus" or not, and from Victoria, Qieen of England and Empress of India, down to the wife of the costermonger, the "plain" gold band is the badge of wifshood. •WEARING OF THE WEDDING KING. A loQg time ago the wedding ring was worn-on the forefinger, and was thickly studded wtth precious stones. People who have seen the old pictures of the Madonna ia Borne, will remember that in one or two of them there is a glistening ring on the forefinger of her right hand, but with Christian, ity came the wearing of the wedding ring on the third finger rather than the first. The Old story of there being a vein that runs from that finger to the heart is nonsense. Its uia origin, ated in this way: The priest first put it on the thumb, saying, "In the name of the Father;" on the forefinger, adding,-'In the name of the Son;" ona the second finger, repeating "In the name of the Holy Ghost," and on the third finger, ending with "Amen," and there it stayed—a badge of true love" and of belief In Christ. Among the Italians, those people so devoted to color, permeated with symbolism, was born the Idea of having the wedding ring set with a stone dedl. cated to the month in which the bride first saw the light of this world. The months to which the gems belong vary, but close study on my part has resulted in giving this aa.the proper calendar. The brido of January has the garnet, the it tone of constancy and (he one which gives to her not only the ability to attract others but to keep them. She of February has the amethyst, which brings to her sincerity in speech, freedom from slander and the certainty that if an onemy gives her poison it will have no more effect on her than if It were pure milk. However, I do not think any bride of today would like to be experimented on with arsenic simply beaause she had an amethyst ring. ' She of March assumed the blood stone, or to call it by Its prettier name and the one given to It in the Bible, the Hyacinth. This gem brought her wisdom and courage and gave bar patience to control her household and make the ladles of the . kitchen sub. servient to her. April's bride was given a diamond, and just as long as the stone remains clear she retains her innocence, and remains pure in her love. THE* MAT GIRL GETS THE EMERALD. That means good health for her who wears it, and the certainty that she will be a happy wife, June, with its sunshine, Its golden days and Its bright red rose?, brought to its daugh ter the ruby, which kept away from her the mean vice of jealousy, and made her affectionate in her love. July Introduces to its child the coral, the stone that kept her free from fevers, and gave her that great bless ing, a contented -mind. August offered to her's .the moonstone, and assured her of happiness in ber mar ried life. September's g«m is the sapphire, the preventive of madness, the gem of Christianity, and the •tone on which the command moots were written. She who wears it will never quarrel with her husband. October finds for her girl the carbuncle, which presents to her the divine gilt of song, make* her low-roioed, and gire* ft great lore for her home. To the November bride ilona belong* the opal. She will be changeable like the stone, but''always will sh« be cheerful and able to control her moods, no matter how dark the days may be. And "December, the last month of the years, offer her offspring 1 the beautiful 1 turquoise, which says, "He who hath a turquoise, hath a friend," and which only ohanges color when the giver grows cold and the health Is pobr. Among the peasantry of Germany the turquoise is still counted a necessity in the betrothal ring, so that the belqved one can always tell whether her sweetheart is true or not. . The most .curious wedding ring I have ever seen is exhibited in ihe Biltlsh Museum, and was TAKEN FROM THE FINGER OF A MU-M-MY, who was just the height of Cleopatra, ana who had evidently been, from the number of jewels, upon , her, a great .ady... It was of no precious metal. Instead it was carved out of ivory, and the design.. showed two clasped lands the work being excessively fine, so that one could easily distinguish Irom 'their shape and size that one land was meant for that of a woman, and the other for the band of a man. [n digging among the old Roman graves a similar ring was found, the ilflerence being that the Roman ring showed a single hand clasping a heart. When Mary Stuart wae wedded to Dvnley he put four wedding rings on tier hand, but these four did not keep her faithful. One was a band of diamonds, one of rubles, one of pearle, aid one of sapphires. This fancy for laving a number of rings grew, in [taly and France, to such an extreme that history tells of a young bride. who bad twelve rings, one for each month of the year, and as they were all put on one finger it was Impossible for her to bond it. X HOYAL "POSY" RING. In 1732 a book on etiquette in England announced very gravely, tbat the privilege waa g-lven to the bride of selecting the finger upon which the ring should be placed. It is possible that today a number of people do not know that in the Graek church <h) wedding ring Is put on the third ticeer, not Of the left, but of the right hand. •Posies," the name given to loving sentiments, were very common In England and France and sometimes they were as sarcastic as they were affectionate. At least one is tempted to think so when one realizes that the unfortunate Anne of Cloves received from Henry the Eighth a ring which liad the "posy" inscribed in it, "God Send Me well to keep." As he grew tired of her very soon and began to look for another wife, It ia not surprising that the posies may occasionally have been questioned. Favorite ones were, "May God above increase our love;" "Not two but one 'till life is done," "In gold lam cast to bind two fast," and "My hta-ti's thine true love of mine." Do you remember Nerissa's ring "of gold a paltry ring," whose posy waa ' Love me and leave me not?" When the English gentlemen were off fighting the heathen, their lady loves used to take off all their rings and put them under their pillows, the idea being that by doing this, they would have pleasant dreams of the crusaders, and that some way or other, while they slept on their rings their knights would be safe. The Scotch lassie believed sincerely that if Bhe looked through her engagement ring three times on the eve of her marriage, she would see visions of the life that was before her, while the Greek girl, who can borrow the wedding ring of a friend to look through at midnight will see the face of the man who will marry her before the year Is over. I think most girls, however, would rather risk a photograph. SYMBOLIC STONES People who give rings for the sake of friendship, or love, nowadays, be stow a little thought onjthem, and are not satisfied merely with what the jeweler offers. Only a wife, however can give a husband a sapphire ring- without the motive being questioned, became it is supposed to cure a man Of drunkenness. The emerald will bring good health, and it should be worn by every doctor, for it will tend to make his medicines more powerful and his patienti wUl get well sooner. Of the ruby, it is believed that a human soul is concealed at its very heart. This idea comes from India, the land of romance, and . the devou! Buddhist believes that it Is a soul going through the agonies of purgatory, seeing again the sins that it has committed and realizing to what depths of wickedness it went After a certain length of time the soul goes out of the ruby and enters into eternal happiness, and another , poor soul takes its place. Personally. I do not think It is altogether pleasant to Imagine that somebody's soul is on your finger, and that you are more or less responsible for Its comfort, so I prefer to regard the ruby as the beautiful stone that is spmholic of innocent lore. JUid which is warranted when worn by a woman to keep her pure. The pearl is laid to kfeep a woman modest, ''and "thiiffl probably the reason why it !• the only rem •permit- Highest of aU in Lwening Power.—Latest U. S.

However, it Is alto symbolic of tears, but It docs not geera right tbat pearls should bi brought to any one who looks at We as If it were all sunshine. The reason children wear corals ia because in the days when a fairy Inhabited every flower and a demon every poisonous plant, the coral protected the children not only from the evil eye, but from serpents who might otberwiee, as they slept, creep up and bite tkem In those days U wa» firmly believed that if a serpent saw a coral it became blind and could cot move. HOLDERS OF PRICELESS JEWELS Today the moit beautiful jewels are ia England, and ropes upon ropes of perfectly pure pearls are possessed by the Dudley family and handed down from one generation to another, each trying to add to the collection. In ihii country, I believe, the , finest pearls are owned by the Vanderbilte. Sirs. Hlcks.Lord has, it ia probable, the most unique set of buttons. There are twelve of tbem, and each Is 'onned of a large diamond set round with sixteen other diamonds, perfect .n shape and colo'r. The late Mre. August Belmont hid the finest sapphires ia this country. Mrs. Lsland Stanford has a most magnificent corsage ornament in diamonds, represent- .ng roees, violets, Ivy leaves and other fiural designs, tbat came out moat superbly at the time I saw them sgainst a white satin bodice. This, by-the-bye, was at a rectptlon given by President Harrison, and the story was told that a detective kept close to Mrs. Stanford wherever she went. Rubles are not appreciated here as they deserve to be. It it said of the Princess of Wales that she has the finest collar of pearls in the world. This is arranged .n five strings, fitted closely about the throat with clasps of perfect Burmese rubies at intervals of every ten pearls. Properly enough, one seldom sees diamonds mounted in earrings nowadays, for if a woman has a pretty ear she does not need a diamond to attract Attention to it, and if she has an ugly one oshe certainly wants people to forget it and not be forced to criticise it because of the beauty of the stone resting against It. Russian women wear rather long, elaborate earrinf g made of precious stones, but these are usually so exquisite in design that one forgives the barbaric taste whlsh puts a hole through the sensitive flesh of a woman's ear that she may presumably add to her beauty. A FAMOCS QUEEN'S NECKLACE. the fact that the play about "Marie Antoinette," Madame de Valols, Cardinal de Rohan, and the famous neck- laoe Is to be presented bore next year hB8 started curiosity again, and the world of women is discussing whether the Queen was right or wrong, whether the Valoia was ft cheat or an honest woman, and whether the Prince was right or wrong; always they give their sympathy to him because be was a lover. How many of them know that aiother Empress, almost at unfortunate, »oted as did Marie Antoinette when the necklace was first offered to her, and insisted that It should be used for something that would be of value to the State? The Auetrira begged that Instead of buying the necklace for her that the king should build another ship with the money Intended to give her pleasure. The other Empress, poor Eugenie, was presented at her mar rlage, by the municipality of Paris, with six hundred francs for ft diamond necklace. 8 se declined the necklace, but took the money, and with it founded an asylum for the orphans of sol. dlers and tailors. It was said she remembered the story of her prede ceesor and refused alwavs 10 take a necklace as a prrsest. However, she has today the finest collection of diamonds and pearls in existence out side of India; and always excepting the royal jewels of England. I never realized until I saw them that there could be such a thing as diamonds by the peck. But come today; WHEN TOCE SWEETHEART has told of bis love »nd wants to bind it with ft gay gold bind, have him place a little sentiment in it. Don't just take a diamond ring like everybody else, but have one that tells ft story especially to you »nd to blm;and don't be like the girl who said she chose the ruby because it was a sy mbo of perfect lore, but specially because It oosti the most. Have your belong logs saturated in sentiment so tha thay will ftlwmys me*n something to 700 and to those who coma after yon. 11 teems to »e that we don't brine quite enough eentimect into our lives. We »re over.wllllng to be matter-of- aot. We have cot enough of romance. We really are degenerate in that respect. I would not give ft straw or ft boy or ft girl who could not gtt up ft bit of enthusiasm. Realism in oucg people is most horrid. I sup>o«e one needs some of it, but always- bere ii one-part of one's life that can made a little different, and I bale ve it is the best part WHAT BAB IS FOND OF. I like fairy stories; I r»ther lean oward ghosts,- I am fond of color and lowers and beautiful diamonds, hough, thank goodness! I have never envied anybody what then have; but I should be awfully aorry If I only ooked at the grimy fide and believed hat there was nothing but bread and butter and no jam. Bread and butter s good; It la healthy; It Is digeatible; iut a continued diet of It Is tiresome. Tou want a dab of jam—not too much, else it will prove cloying, but just inough to give you pleasure. And ,hle ifi iuft how much sentiment you want; juet enough to give i pleasure. To make you lov- og and loved; to make you tender, lyropathetlo and considerate. To make you all that you ought to be if you are a woman and all tbat you lopetobelf you are a man. I am sorry to say It, but I think our American men have more sentiment than our women. They are a bit ashaaned of It, I am sure I don't know why. Vhy should one be ashamed of being tender? But a man U, and be 1» wrong. For women love him better,. 'or it, at least I think they do, and I am opeaklng for the general woman, and the general woman is the woman who likes men, and who. just for thl* once, is represented by— BAB.
