How can you make more actual business by calling six inches a foot, or, if silver would rise to par, by calling a. foot a foot? Supply and demand make business. What difference can it make in the demand and supply if you change the'mediurn of exchange? You can ruin business by making the Medium of exchange doubtful, as free silver would do, but you cannot help it that way, DEATH OF MISS NONA YOUNG. At the home of her parents. A.

William Stvvriis UMS si ruck by I:,-'.n- ning Saturday evening aud was ::i- sljuitly killed. He was C" years of age ami unmarried. l''or some time past he has hern employed by James '.lilde- lirandr, who lives on the Amos Kistler farm m-ar Koy.-il renter. Aft- r the wind shii'iu Sievi-ns weni into an adjoining Held to tend to Ihe stork. \Yhcii he did not return at tlie pi'o;>iT time, Hildebmiidt went to look for him. LI'. 1 was fitirnrted to a blaxiiig object and upon approaching it found it to bo Stovi'iis's body. The burning clothes of the imt'ortunnte man were torn from ihe body before his form was severely burned. The only visible marks of the lightning was a small round m:irk upon the top of the head where it entered anil a red line down the right side of the body to the sole of the foot, The shoe had been torn off and was. found about fifty feet away. • ANOTHER FAKE CONVERSION James L. Evans of Noblesville Has Been a Democrat for Eight Years. It never was "in" the cdit&r of a' Democratic paper to tell tlie .-exact,' truth of a political story. If it's '•njrliii 'em" they are silent or. if forced to talk, will reply by abuse and lying. But if there Is the shadow of fact on which to build a fairy tale in favor ot. their side, they hasten to enlarge the.) shadow until they have it so deep as, to obscure the truth, Tlie rharos is no exception to this rule. Its latest • lie was printed yesterday evening, or rather was reprinted from the Indiana-' polls Sentinel, whose rank fake stories of "conversions" of Republicans to the cause of free silver have been repeatedly given the lie within the past week... In fact, so strong was the pressure of the exposes becoming that the Sent!-, nel admitted that it.had been imposed, ou by fake correspondents, and sent, out a circular letter -to all of its correspondents in the State, warning them that '• the Sentinel wants the truth- about political meetings and political matters, and if it is found that corres-: pendents are willfully misreprcseutiug the facts, they will be summarily dismissed." The Pharos story of the desertion of James Jj. Evans of Noblesville from the ranks of Republicanism was taken bodily from the Sentinel, In which it 'was published some days since. There it was stated that Mr. Evans had "until now never swerved in his putty allegiance." The Indianapolis,News, a non-partisan paper, in a dispatch from- Noblesville, says- that Mr, Evans has not been Identified with the Republican party rfor eight years. That he has been nominally known ns a .Republican, but that he went off with the. Democrats iu 1SSS for free trade. If a man can be a free trade Republlcau he could be very comfortable iu hades wearing a heavy ulster, Mr. Evnns does not denyJJiat he voted for Cleveland four years ago, and it is also certain that lie'did in 18SS. Such'alleged conversions to the cause of free sJlver ns that of Mr. Evans are a Godsend to the Republican party, for It removes an enemy that has hitherto tried to harbor within the'fold, while ho.se- cretly gave aid nnd comfort to the foe.

WHAT IT IS LIKE •Daily Routine of a Circus Per, former's Life. ALWAYS ON THE HOVE Sights and Scenes Under the i "Big Top." •;Unclo lien Wallace's circus WHS iu the city yesterday. That was sutli- clJut to-draw :i greater number of. peo- iplii from the country than has viRitecl r.qgansijort iu one day for sonic time. Tliey c;'ime' early aud they sCaid late, mid from, all appearances, they nil enjoyed the ilny Immensely. And not only iras there n. goodly number of Cass oount-y.eitizons visiting town, but there were p'roba'bly Uvo hundred of Miami •county's "host" who c:imo down t.o see what: "T;nclo Ben" looked like avay iVnui iionic. Many of Them have never ,S',!eu tin; circus after it opens with the hiilial performance :U Peru In the spring. !">d they wanted lo show "Un- i-lc Ren" that they appreciate his really excel'leiifsliow. A spucial train ou the Wabash yesterday morning brought over two hundred people-from Pen:, and there were many who drove iu. The Peruvians brought, a lia.iul with thijin and they were not ashamed to luc it l.io known that they had como- do\vn to root for ihe show. Wallace presents this .season one of the neatest, eleanest, rind altogether atlractive (.-iiviis |ior:'onnanfrs now on the road. From the proprietor himself down to the ten!' ppgger on the- horse l«i|is, Hie showmen nre a remarkably civil lot of men, They have their duties laid out for them and they pro about them without the usual circus .aecompjiiilnwnt of shudder-producing o.iths. which is really remarkable for a showman. Mr. Wallace hi.mself is here, •there and everywhere, and the men in his employ know that lie is liable to be at any spot ou the show grounds at any time: therefore, they are always polite, and rough language is seldom heard even among the canvasnien and host- 'li-:rs, wlio are supposed to l>e the toughs of a circus. 'However fascinating circus life may appear to the average youth, the actual tiling is far from being .the easy snap it looks. It: cau bo said that there is not an idle man about a circus. :ind if such a one is employed by mistake, lie soon "frets the run," to use a circus phrase: in other words, is discharged. Thu everyday life of an attache of a circus may be .summed up in one brief word,-, work. From the time the big train stops at the day's "stand" until every pole and rope is again stowed away aboard tars and moving on to the next town, there is work aud plenty of it for almost everybody. As soon ns the. train has been set iu on the sidetrack at the town where a show is to be.given, the teamsters are awake and at' work, unloading the heavy wagons iind hauling them to the show grounds. The cauvns wagons are first ou the ground, followed by the pole trucks, jmd then the tent peggers aud the cau- vasmen-. begin work. The cook tent goes up first of all, and then the horse tops are spread and Hie "ring stock'' is unloaded and stabled. Next the "animal top" is put tip aud the cages o£ animals are hauled in and set in place, the • elephants, camels and other "ground• stock" are brought in aud tethered In their proper places and fed. •Next the "big top" or main tent Is spread aud the tent in which the sideshow holds forth, and the smaller teats for dressing rooms, etc., are put in place. While nil of this work lias been going on the dny has begun for the performers. They roll out of their bunks Ju the Pullman cars aud go to the grounds 'for breakfast. After break•fast everything'is hustle and bustle to make ready for the morning parade. When that is over the dinner hour is ou and after that meal is disposed of 'they must makoTcady for the performance. After the first performance the shownlen are ready for supper aud after that, the nlgbt show' is on. The last note of music has not died away at the close of the "concert" before the most, of the big show is loaded on the cars agnin, ready to move ou to the next town. And so it goes; day after day, with ono snort rest over Sunday, for about thirty weeks in each year? They arc a h'ardy lot, these circus performers,, and the practically open-air life they lead makes them so. They are rarely sick and as rarely discontented with their lot. With the AVallaco circus a visit to the dining tent at meal times will show that they have nothing to complain of iu the way of food, for they are served with substantial, wholesome eating, well cooked and neatly served. 1 The excellence of the show was a surprise to many, who have known of Wallace's circus since the proprietor graduated from the livery sta.ble business in Peru into a "cheap-John-" show business' some years since. From a small beginning it has grown to be one of • the best shows on the road. Although there arc others larger, "'there •are-none better," is the boast of• the proprietor. The show came here 'un- Only 8 Days Left To Close out our entire stock at £ ACTDAL HALF PRICE. Greatest opportunity ever offered.

At Huntington Saturday evening the wind-storm literally stripped the poles of canvass, and caused damage to the amount of $5,000. In consequence the animal tent was without a top and all the canvas was rent and torn in many places. Notwithstanding this, the parade was put upon the streets at the usual hour and' was a surprise from its excellence. This was also true of the circus performance, and the tent, which was about half filled at the afternoon show, was Jammed full at night. All of Mr. Wallace's employes, from highest to lowest, are courteous and gentlemanly, and the visitors are treated as they should be. A GOOD SPEAKER. Hon. Frank B. Posey at the Rink Thursday Night.

Orlando Powell, of Bethlehem township, made a reply to Edward E. Hor- tou's speech at Osagc school house in that township last Friday night. Mr. Powell's speech was a surprise to those who heard him. His.speech was based on actual condition and no theory. 'He was frequently applauded, and at the close Invited qnestiocs from Mr. Horton, who was present. Mr. Hot-ton asked one question which was answered in a manner than completely squelched him. The school bouse was crowded to the utmost. • Mr. Powell has been invited to speak in other parts of the county. . Subscribe for The Journal. TERRIBLE ACCIDENT.
