Nevor Divides!- Nevor Disappoints! 130 GAMBLING DEVICES TOLERATED. In *he United States There are Sixty-Two Crimes Punishable by Death. To strike sixteen' offenses from the list of those punishable by death Is the purpose of a bill now before tlio Son- alo aud which Ji.is been passed by the House. One might think Tlmt only In Russia mid China Is to be fo.und such au extensive list, of capital crimes. Yet that would be mos.t unjust, for in ttus- sUi the dentil penalty is never pronounced except for treason, whereas in China It is imposed for only eleven offenses, in the United States, says the Plttsburjr Dispatch, uo less than sixty-two different species of crimo may be dealt with under the law by hanging, shooting, or the electric chair. Under the military code of the United States twenty-live offenses arc.cap- ital. Among tlij'Se are strlklngjor dis- ogi-yliig :i superior olllcer, mutinying sleeping on post, causing a false alarm li'i camp, cowardice- before tlio. enemy, disclosing a watchword, relieving a I'oe with food or money, desertion or persuading smother to desert, and doing violence to any person bringing provisions into camp while in "foreign parts", t'ncler the naval-code Uveiily- two crimes nro punishable by death, including absence from post, willful injury to a ship, sotting lire to property not in possession of :m enemy or pi- nites. striking a Hag to ;v foe-without proper .authority, shouting I'or si quart- or through coward ico. failing to inform :i superior oflieer of the receipt Of a letter from :m enemy, and fsiiling lo encourage inferior olh'ccrs in n sea light. Tile death penalty is applicable at all times in Ki-.ch eases, ihough ordinarily it is not Indicted except in ease of war, IS ut I here'are seveuloou offenses that are capital under the civil laws of tlio United States. Aiiu>ng these are tlie sc-ultling or burning ol' a vessel nt son, robbery on the high seas, robbery on shore by the crew of :i piratical vessel, retention of negroes on board of a vessel, seizing negroes on a foreign shore burning a dwelling house within n fort, laying violent hands on the captain of a ship, treason and an act of hostility sign.inst the United States, or any citizen thereof, on tlio high seas, under color of commission from a State, or on pretense of such authority. From a comparison of the criminal laws of foreign countries with those of the United Stiites. it appears that we have undoubtedly the bloodiest code In the. world. We also have the greatest 'number of murders in proportion to population, while the administration of justice for such crimes is the most uncertain. WHAT AILS OUR UNCLE. Undo Sam's first'illness was attributed by the Democrats to too much' silver in ills blood ,nnd when ho did not recover as rapidly as expected it was decided by the party that'he did not have enough sliver in his vieua, Mr. Laudis had recently -met a man who was in favor of money getting cheaper on a steadily falling scale because then the people tlmt possessed It would be afraid to hoard it, and thus put itjnto circulation. Mr. J^-sald-that the great crime was not in -1873, but In November, 1802, when prosperity was throttled, and the business of receiver, sheriff jiniVfree soup-house keeper, was soon forced above par. He quoted Lincoln relative to the purchase of steel rails in EuglamL If the United States pays $50 for steel rails in England, the rails come hero but the money remains over there. If the rails are purchased in tlie United States not only the product but the money are realized for American industries. The speaker remembered the sign on the prairie schooner: "Arizona for irrigation, Kansas for immigration, Democracy and free trade for starvation. I'm going back to my wife's relatives." The State Fair Is nearly here once more, being this'year Hie 14th to the 10th of Sept., and the managers are actively preparing for the event. The premium list is being mailed on application and the changes made will interest exhibitors. Especially is this true In the live stock.department where the changes' give three premiums where before there was awarded but two. All diplomas have been abandoned and cash prizes substituted. The number of premiums nre thus greatly increased and the live stock exhibitor that this year fails to feceive an award will certainly be very badly outclassed. Entries in all departments close Sept. 7th, and exhibitors should write for a list at once. Address Chas. F. Kennedy, Room 14, State House, Indianapolis, Ind.

THE STATE RECORD, Thomas Dean, an operator on one of the Indianapolis Journal's Mergentlial- or typesetting machines, lowered the State record on the msiehines by setting 04,700 ems one night recently in little less thsm eight hours. The best previous record of 02,300 ems, was made by John W. Folger, who also received his traim'ug on the Journal nm- . chines. Under the old system of setting type. by:hand 8,300 ems, was an average-night's work, so it \v.lll be seen that if Mr. Dean's record was maintained every night one machine would supplant more than seven men under the hand system. At tlio rate paid by the Journal when the hand system was in vogue Mr. Dean's night's work would have netted him about 925. It inny be of further interest to note that ^04,700 ems occupy about nine columns ! of uews space in the Journal, which is sibout as much as three reporters will write in. a day. ' , There Is more Catarrh '"• thla eec- tlon of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last few years It waa supposed to be Incurable. For a great inaiiy years doctors pronounced It a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly falling to cure with local treatment, pronounced It Incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease, and therefore requires, constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured to F. J.

Judge .Cole, of the Supreme court of Washington, D. C. refused naturalization to two applicants who confessed themselves unable to understand any part of the constitution of the United States, or 'even to give any rational description of the nature of the government.

GRACE 426 BROADWAY. WHERE ARE THE "FOUR HUNDRED." Hammouil Tribune: Hammond's sil- vor shouters—and there arc n few—an: nothing It' not aggressive. From taking a r.3-ccnt chunk of white met:il and calling It .$1 to swelling the list of an organization recently perfected in this city, is but one stop. It is necessary to go away from home sometimes to get. the news, and here is ono of the occasions. Tho Michigan City Dispatch says in its issue of Monday evening. ;'A Bryan club was .organized at Hammond, last week with 400 members seventy-five ol! whom were former Republicans and Populists." Foople acquainted with the facts are not troubling themselves about the figures, but for the benefit of an esteemed contemporary it might be said the club lias about one-third of tlie membership claimed tor it. HAZING 1 -IS STOPPED. .The popularity of hazing at West Point has. received a serious setback.' The young man who obtained so much entertainment from the torture of a follow cadet will have a year of confinement within the limits of the barracks In which to think the matter over. This severe sentence will undoubtedly deter other cadets from indulging in similar cruelty, and should be an object lessou to parents of young men who practice hay.iug Jjn colleges where explusion is the only punishment. If a few fathers would administer ii little retributive justice a col- lego education would be robbed of- much of Its present terrors. Turn the artillery on the youug blods and work' thorn out. , . WEEDS ON HIGHWAYS. We believe there is a law upon our statutes requiring that all brush, weeds, etc., along the highways be cut down, but one would scarcely believe it In traveling about the country. Road supervisors should see to it that this law is enforced. It, would take but very little of '!x^,farmor's time to mow the weeds alongside his farm, and it would be iu most cases a benefit to the roads and add fifty per cent to the general appearance of the country.— Ex-chnuge.
