When I say the two of tliem I moan the Kokomo minister and .tiio one In this city who advised his flock not to go to the camp meeting recently hold at the park. It is a well- known fact that one-half of the Rev. White's congregation has ceased'to attend his church on' account of his dislike for "the yellow Negro" as he chooses to call them,, and I can further say that a groat many of these are now worshipping at the Second Baptist /church, of which the Rev. Carter is "pastor. Now, I would like to ask the reverend gentleman of the A. -M. E, church here why he waited* until Burnett had gone from the city before he made tho attack on him that be did, and as for the Kokomo paper that printed such stuff, I will ask any one to tell if that paper ever spoke a good wosd for a colored man. All of the colored people of this city, are acquainted with Aaron -Burnett and his family,. and as for him being a gambler I think they.will join me in saying that the charge is false and we might learn something of his accusers,!! we would drop over to Crawfordsville.

' '" ' ! LOGANSPORT & WABASH TAJ. LEY GAS CO. • ' i. A prominent farmer of Deer Creek township was ; in the city one day the past week disposing- of his oats-'crop He received fifteen cents per. busllel which appears to be a mean price, ba his thirty acres sown yielded 2,04' busbels. The crop netted liira'.$10.2i per .acre, or ?30C. Of .course t^rity flve cents per bushel would have been better, but has not the enor mous. crop something to do with ^ price, as well as 1 "the crime of '73?" Frank Johnson, a wheelman, claims that he rode the distance'between this city and Anderson, S5 1 miles,'in'seven hours. ^..^ .... „ ., • Children's'cap;; and Tain O'Shanter; .Chef B'arnctt Hotel, -Trade Palace. - '- :''"'•'•'i.'- ; '' Fully seven hundred people braved tlie rain und threatening weather last -niglit and went to the rink to hoar the H6ii. Theodore Shocknt-y of-Union City speak upon :the political issues of tho day from a .Republican standpoint. Notwithstanding the storm of the early evening the people, Republicans.Demo- crats .and Populists, together with a numbbr'df 'well-known Prohibitionists, occupied seats in the big audience room .and a number of ladies had also braved ,thu storm to hear the eloquent gentleman. • ; : Mr. Sbockuey's speech was oue of the best heard here in this campaign, nnd viis a. logical argument of tho question Df itliiiiuL-iiil policy from a sound money fciiidpoint, dealing oxx-lusivoly in facts Hid.figures, aud holding out no promise hat the. Republican party is not as- ...'.•od oC.being able to fulfill, i£ elected o.'power. There was no "silver lining," ,,.j the full glory of a "golden clay" viis depicted in language that brought 'roquent applause and honest praise of lie sentiments expressed. Mr. Shock- icy is one of tlie most logical speakers it the disposal of the Republican Conral committee, and his talk of last light will bo productive of much good, ^o Is thoroughly informed on the qiics- i'on of the day and combats the fallacy if free coinage of silver with couvinc- hK "logic in an entertaining manner hat 'captures his hearers. •The.drum corps bravud the mud in Hie ^streets and the rain from above, ind made good Republican music in Advance of the meeting. The Republican glee clnb under the direction of ?i-bf. Gift'e, has a uumber'of new and .•alx-liy songw. which it sung to the de- ight of the audience. There is no better test-of the interest which the wople feel in a national issue than hat of hist evening. When the people arc. sufficiently Interested to risk a drenching in order to hear the political ssiics discussed, it is evidence that Jiey arc bent on investigating the questions i»t issue for themselves, and this can only result in good for the Repub- ican'party, which represents the broad est American .policy, tho policy of Protection to American labor and an Honest Dollar. Ill-IE MEETING AT TWELVE MILE. The storm last uveuius seriously interfered with the Republican meeting:, at Twelve Mile. W. T. Wilson, George' Gamble,' Jos; Grace and Ed Peurose started for Twelve'Mile a little before six o'clock and were caught 1 in tlie storm. They took refuge in a school house after narrowly escaping a falling tree. At Twelve Mile they were met by a crowd of Riirty who had braved the storm aud wore entertained byi a glee club of which Adams township .may well be proud. Hon. W. T: Wilson .made a short address but no effort., was made to organize a Republican club, the organization being postponed to some future date when the conditions are more favorable. ' -• ' AT YOUNG AMERICA. "• 'DeWitt C. Justice and Dr. J, Z. Pow- 'eli Were at Young 'America last night and Mr, Justice spoke to a fair sized audience. The storm, while not so fierce as it was here in the city and further North, prevented many from attending.- There was a heavy rain in this section' and the number at the meeting' was consequently small, not more than fifty being . present. Mr. Justice spoke and was heard with close attention, being frequently applauded.' THE ADAHSBORO PICNIC.

A FREAK OF LIGHTNING. • A special from South Whitley, Ind., says: Recently Miss Delia Clark, of Washington township, .wliifc standing in the pantry of her father's residence, was struck by lightning, the electric fluid setting fir* to her' tlothing. En-' veloped.in flame, she ran t:o her mother tv-ho was sick In bed, and her mother extinguished the fire. with, the bed clothing, the girl not being fatally .burned. She was struck on the left side, the. current passing around under her nrin and. leaving -at the middle of her back. Immediately her body became so rigid that her clothing had to, be cut off, and she was evidently burt; inwardly, as she cannot bear the slightest weight on her body. She is still confined to her bed, and it is feared thai (the is permanently paralyzed. Laal "Sunday lightning again struck neat her home," making her condition stll! more serious.
