It is now settled that the W Conkey publishing company will move from Chicago to Hammond. To meet the expense of removal the citizens ol!

Between 1,200 and 1,500 persons are employed the year round and about 140,000 per month is paid for labor. The Coakey company is the largest publishing concern in the west. Mr. Conkey assigns several reasons for choosing Hammond as a location for the gigantic enterprise, among which are superior railroad facilities, low tax rates and near proximity] to Chicago, where the main offices ol the concern will be located, clearly every railroad crossing northern Indiana passes through Hammond. It is the gateway to Chicago from the east. The tax valuation of the railroads passing through Lake county IB over l9,iOO,0(K>. This insures a low local tax rate. It is but a half hour's ride from the business center ol Chicago to Eiimmond.^The Conkey company will,.construct_a telephone 'THE OLD STENCH," Ig the Latest Same Applied to the Wabash and Erie Canal. An exchange unburdens itself as follows: -'For many years the old Wabash and Erie canal has existed only as a memory. The tow path has become famed in poetry and song, but has occupied a place in a oartlal oblivion for years. About once every change of tbepjmoon tne alder bushes along its historical banks will be agitated cwtth the breath of the rumor that a ship canal will soon be constructed. It is like a boll, always breaking out in some new place where it is least expected. Some crank starts]the agltaliion and then passes from view, while the frogs and the green covered pools of stagnant water still exertj-the same sway of absolute control Qaod possession."

It will be presented by Hoyt £ McKeen's Musical Comedy company, and under the personal direction of the firm. In the number of clever comedians, pretty girlfi, sumptuous stage settings and beautiful costuming, the production will be an exact duplicate of that given in New York City. At the head of a specially selected cast are Otis Harlan, the humorous "Hot stuff "of Hoyt's "A Black Sheep;" William DeTere, who made one of that name—a woman of great strength of character, who married a gentleman of Peorla, Ills., by the name of Bartlett. She wan passing through the city to visit her friends and relatives in the east, and her old friend, Mrs. Dykeman, asked her to stay with her for a few days.

Highly I»fl»uiro»ble Nature of Everything at Baku Petroleum Well*. , Probably there is no spot on earth where more highly inflammable matter lies exposed to such terrible conflagrations as that just reported from Baku than in the district lying just beyond that town on.the shores of the Caspian. Everything seems saturated with petroleum. The air one breathes is laden with a greasy odor, and the waters of the bay are covered with an iridiscent sheen which at night may be set on fire with most weird effect. Not only is black naphtha to be seen in monster fountains playing irons the very eartb, but white naphtha flows of itself m places, and a short way off are the natural gas vents over which the natives do their cooking without coal, and which oace fed Che sacred ZoroaEtriaii fires. No wonder that the ancient Persians looked on this as holy ground, where the eternal, heaven fed flames of life burst forth in sacred buildings, the remains of which are still extant, and the modern Persi.au or Parsee of Bombay and Gujeratkindles the oil shipped to him from Batoum without a sigh for a vanished belief. When the late shah of Persia visited Baku, it was necessary to import a number of priests for the occasion that he might witness 111 the portion of the Persian empire that had been wrested from it by Peter the Great a specimen of the worship that his predecessors had all but stamped out in the portion they had conquered and retained. For less distinguished visitors to see there is only a ruined tower, from the top of which flare natural jets, through iron gas pipes, and a number of cells, with altars for the once sacred fire, and some ancient inscriptions. Everything round is saturated, and I have stood in those sheds the only dry object, with a naphtha spout playing above and falling deafeningly upon the roof. No one objects to naphtha there, and themen even wash in it, using sand therewith, while all employed have^a fixed allowance for fuel and light. 3No dwellings more dismal than theirs can be imagined. Dante should have visited the'spot. ' All around between the wells lie lakes of seething naphtha, which, when clear of sand and stones, will be pumped into iron reservoirs. The roads have naphtha streams by the sides, and naph Is the mark of the gentlem**. We keep your linen M it shouM be. We do the work quickly M»i as well as modern machiMry, pure soap and good workmei ua do it. A postal brings our w»g»». Both 'phones 110. Marshall's Latmdry, 608 Broadway. jfcokomo Womens' Scheme.

One rashly thrown match would set miles in a blaze, and the most stringent regulations are wisely enforced. But for them disasters wonld be terribly frequent. A very different appearance is presented by the palpitating Black Town, where in gigantic furnaces the naphtha is distilled and churned and distilled again as benzine, kerosena and vaseline, and many valuable chemicals are one by one removed, rill only the thick, black, residue of use for fuel is left, and much of this is used to feed the furnaces themselves. Boilers so heated closely resemble those intended for coal and wood, except that on the inside of the fire doors are stont jets, through which it is pumped the length of the firebox, forming bright tongues of heat giving flames Railways and steamers alike are so heated in Bnssia. —Pall Mall Gazette. Evolution of a Hero. Ex-County Attorney W. B. Allin told this war story: It was just before the battle of Morfreesboro that a detachment of Morgan's command was guarding a mountain pass a few railes from Brady ville, Tenn. A portion of the valley leading to the pass was densely wooded and swampy. The marshy ground abounded in bullfrogs of huge proportions, and the trees afforded myriads ol owls of immense size a roosting place. Among the soldiers was a stripling from near Stanford by the name of Spreeler. It was a gloomy, wild and windy night that Spreeler was called upon to do "I'll be darned if you do," exclaimed Spreeler as lie fired his nniskL-t and broke lor camp, which had been throwa into thewildwt confusion by the alarm, it being thought that the enemy was attacking the outposts. When tbe true state of affairs was understood, the others made life a burden for John until „ tbe battle of Murfreesboro, when the Liucolu couuty stripling was promoted for conspicuous bravery. He was after- ,. ward assigned toBragg's army and died like a hero at the "battle above the clouds" while in the forefront of the charge and trying, to spiko an enemy's cauuou.— Harrodsburg (Ky.)
