Feb. l.-The residents of Union township, this county, are exercised ovei: the mysterious doings reported at the Hiram Cotton homestead, one of the oldest and best- known in the county.

The Way the General'* Friends Would See Him Resistor at Hotels. Indianapolis. Feb. l.-The Republicans of Indiana will elect a new state committee today. The district conventions will be held at the following places: First district. Evarisville; Second, Bloomfleld; Third, New Albany; Fourth, Greeiwbure; Fifth, Terre Kaute; Sixth, Cambridge City; Seventh, Indianapolis; Eighth, Muncie; Ninth, Noblesville; Tenth, Lafayette; Eleventh, Wabash; Twelfth, Fort Wayne; Thirteenth, Plymouth. The new committee will meet here one week from Tuesday to organize for the state campaign. The political friends of ex-President Harrison are especially anxious that the new organization be one with -which he will affiliate. Recently the talk of electing Harrison to the senate in the event the legislature is Republican has been revived, and the politicians all agree that he 1£ will say he -will accept he will be the senator. Governor Mount was asked to outline the Republican line of battle for the coming state campaign. He said: "My Judgment is that the national Issue In the coming state campaign will be the financial question—whether or not we shall have free coinage, at 16 to 1, or maintain the^old standard. There may be some action by congress which will shape the Issues as they affect national politics, but in my opinion the situation will not be influenced much by any action that congress is going to take. I think that the Democratic party will declare in favor of the Chicago platform and the Republican party in favor of the golcU. standard." It looks now as if the chairman of the state committee would be picked from the following: E. H. Nebecker. of eovington; Harry S. New. of this city; Warren Bigler, of Wabash; Nat U.

The names of the admiral's complete lectures are as follows: "TheCaribbean See, the Mediterranean of Onr Western World,""A Winter Voyage Through the Straits of Magellan" and "Commo dore John Paul Jones, the Sponsor^ of the Stars and Stripes on the Ocean." All of these lectures are illustrated by fine stereopticon views, many of which were made from the admiral's own collection of photographs.—New York Tribune. Women'i Brain Power, Sir William Turner, at the meeting of the British Medical association al Montreal, once again brought forward the old assertion that, because the brain of a man weighs absolutely more than that of a -woman, therefore a man is possessed of a greater amount of (team power than is woman. This theory until recent times was on all sides conceded to be true and was regarded as a convincing proof of woman's intellectual inferiority, says a writer in the New York Medical Record. The Russian Professor Darkchevitch took up the cudgels in defense of the weaker sex and demonstrated to the satisfaction of the majority that the fact of a man's brain weighing shghcly more than a woman's was worthless as a testimony of his superior intellectual capacity. Professor Darkchevitch eon- tends, from the result of his researches, that the sexes as regards brain power are on an equality and backs up the argument in support of his theory with many convincing illustrations. For instance, Skobeleft's brain weighed less than that There are many women's press clubs in the country, and a majority probably are enrolled in the league. Among the more influential of these are the New York Woman's Press club, the Scribblers of Buffalo, the New England Woman's Press club and tbe Illinois Woman's Press association, which represent together more than 000 active members. The Woman's National Press association is the oldest of its kind in this country, having been started in 1882 by Mrs JRose Breandle, Miss Briggs, Mrs. M D Lincoln, Mrs. Nettie Saaford, Mrs. Lydia Tilton, Mrs. Juliette Babbitt and others. It grew steadily and has today a membership of 150. It had a fine exhibit at the World's fair m Chicago and is a prominent member of the National Council of Women. The congress which it holds is intended to women writers together, to organ- ze the literary profession so far as the ame is possible and to create an esprit de corps. Tbe congress will be impor- ant. as the management has received messages of concurrence and co-opera, tion from nearly every state and tern- lory. Among those which will be represented is the Western Association ol Writers, a society of maiiy hundred members, which has become a power in Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan ""' other central states. From the returns of the two organizations it is estimated that the women writers of the country now exceed 20,000, including in this total editors, reporters, publishers and translators, •while the number of men is about four awkward manner that they must swing against the windows or gas fixtures; the space for the dresser is not left on the side of the room farthest from the light; the closets are not like of 40 individual common soldiers, yet no one wonld dream for this reason of making the assertion that these men •were the superior of Skobeleff in ability. Liebig's brain also was under the average weight. The opinions on this matter are diverse and various. A large number of persons still hold to the views of Sir "William Turner and with him conscientiously believe that the lesser weight of woman's brain implies in itself the possL.-siou of less mental power. On the other hand, many side with Darkcbevitch and say tbat her cumulative and retentive poweta at'e fully cqnal to those of a man. The question may herd be asked, Has woman's intellectual inferiority ever been clearly proved? That it has been is probably the opinion of most persons. From an anatomical and physiological point of view, also, she is by many authorities relegated to a position lower than that occupied by man. The supporters of. tae theory of woman's intellectual, inferiority point ont, too, with triumph that in scarcely any branch of science, art or ever reached quite times as great.—Margherita Arlina Hamm in N«w York Mail and Express. The Debutante's Bouquet. What used to be a pretty and significant compliment, a debutante's bouquet, has gradually degenerated into a positive incubus. Time was when a girl who made her bow to society was able to hold in her two hands all her floral tributes in honor of the occasion. If by any chance she could not wear or carry all that had been sent her, the somebody whose flowers had been slighted had every reason to feel aggrieved. As years went on, though, many somebodies had to feel slighted, as it became a physical impossibility for the debutante to bear tbe burden of all her bouquets. They waxed not only in number but in size. It became the rogue to have them stacked upon a stand designed especially for tbe purpose, which, placed behind the girl, formed an effective background. Still the bouquets grew larger and more numerous, and instead of one stand several were necessary. Nowadays no debutante dreams of making use of the flowers sent her, even as a background. Tbe bouquets are heaped upon piano tops, mantelpieces, bookshelves and every other available space, being confined not to one room or even to one floor, but overwhelming the whole house. An unwritten law that the several bunches should be kept intact makes it impossible to arrange the flowers with true decorative intent. As one goest put it after leaving a recent presentation : "Such masses of heaped up flowers remind me of nothing so nrach as a funeral," Tbe incubus of tbe thing is shared by the sender as well as the debutante. It is the duty of every one wbo knows a girl about to make her debut to send her flowers, but there are times, especially -when one considers the fate that will befall them, when he would willingly forego tbe privilege. About tbe only persons who derive any real benefit or even satisfaction from the debutante bouquet habit as practiced today are the inmates of hospitals—the ultimate destination of most of tbe flowers that appear at social functions. —Philadelphia Times. dark pockets in a basement, but arranged to be well ventilated as of ten as need•d; the dining room is made large enough so that it will contain a sideboard as well as a table and chairs, and it will not be necessary for all to rise from one side of the table in order that the waitress may pass to the other side, cr else hand things across the table, as occurred lately in an apartment building designed by a man; the mirrors will not face the light; the pantry will have window and will not be placed in the center of the house; the registers or radiators will not occupy the o.nly wall space large enough for the bedstead or the sofa or the sideboard; the doors will be wide enougn to admit of any article of furniture made, and the halls will be large enough so articles can be wheeled through them from one room into another. Theory and Practice. Among other applicants in answer to a recent advertisement for a waitress was a young girl whose dress, demeanor and speech were such that the prospective mistress could not but wonder. The girl, however, seemed willing and anxious to do'all that was expected of her, and the bargain was on the point of being closed when she said, "There's one thing, Mrs. Blank; I should like to have from 8 until 11 every evening to study art." "What?" gasped the astonished Mrs. Blank. "From 8 until 11 every evening to study art," repeated the girl. "You see, I'm an art student. I've only just come to New York, and I have no money to pay my way through any of the schools or even to live upon, so'l thought the best thing would be to enter domestic service (the latter day philanthropists are always advising it, you know) and study art between 8 and 11.

Yonnc Indian PoeteM. Among the few Indian women who have achieved distinction is the poetess of the Iroquois, Tekahionwake, the daughter of Chief Onwansyshon, formerly the head chief of the Mohawk division of the IroqnoiB Nation. This young Indian woman is better known as Pauline Johnson, and she has literary talent of a high order. She says of herself that she had from a child a desire to show the world that one Indian woman had some ambition. It is, however, in the role of Indian interpreter^ the laws and customs of her people that she has made money and success. She wears a native costume with a history, her barbaric decorations being hundreds of years old. Scalps taken by her people dangle from her waist, and her necklace of bears' claws is something unique v and fearful, with a tragic story attached. Pauline is » Canadian and a protegee of Lady Aberdeen, who sent her to England, -where she was the sensation of London drawing rooms. Pauline Johnson has published a book of verses, and she contributes outing and folklore stories to the magazines.

May not also the difference the brains of men and -women be looked for not so much in the ponderos- ity as in the quality? A woman's brain from tbe nature of things is to a certain extent of another type. The natural role of a woman differs widely from tbat of a man, and she is provided with or has evolved brains suited to her situation. Nevertheless, in these times it often happens tbat a -woman from the stress of circumstances is prevented tram-fulfilling her natural mission and is compelled to compete with men. She has -shown her capability successfully to do so, but in the action must necessarily lose many of her feminine characteristics.
