WINE PRODUCTION. According to the report of Consul •Germain, the wine production of the world last year was 3,672,000,000 gal• Ions. .The estimated population of the 'world is .1,479,000,000. This would give nearly three gallons of wine to '.•every man, woman and child In the ,' world.

'" And they will probably ; be -utilized by' some , one-sided IndTI- duals by way of showing that the | {'whole world Is going on a high old \ ;• lender. 1' Marion Chronicle: The Impression has gone abroad that Van Bnren presents a field for the sen-ices of a good, active missionary. At any rate the conclusion is justified by me fact that :i series of temperance meetings liavi; bi-on inaugurated under tin; auspices of tho Good Templar*. The first moot lug was hold last evening at the Methodist church. Buck Stanley of Logins- port Is in chiivsc of tho meetings and will deliver a. series of addresses; Sunday nftenioon there will hi; a lootin-o n> men only. The concluding lucniro will be u.cl(;scriinive :'u:0ouut o;: tho oa> tiirivof the Green brothers, Amer and Hill, two Cass county desperadoes whom Mr. Stanley followed into the wilds of Texas and brought hack, the one to be sent to tho penitentiary for lito and the other to be taken out by a .mob and hung. Buck Stanley. 1 Is n 'character who attracts . attention wherever lie appears. He. has been through the mill. He has been an officer, and prison guard, and lias gone the pace. He -has had to do business with some of the most desperate criminals In the country from time to time, and the contingency lias never arisen that caused him to flinch. Nobody ever questioned tho quantity or quality of Buck Stanley's sand. During the last six years he has been engaged In temperance work, and his labors have been influential in reclaiming many men who were supposed'to bo hopelessly besotted. At the recent Prohihitioii Congressional convention held In Marion Stanley's najne was prominently mentioned in connection with the Congressional nomination. . $100 REWARD, ?100. The readers of this paper will be pleased to learn that there Is at least one dreaded disease that science has been able to cure In all its stages and that is Catarrh. Hail's Catarrh Cure is .the only positive cure now known to the medical fraternity. Catarrh' being a constitutional disease, requires a constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure is taken internally, acting directly upon the blood arid mucous surfaces of tho system, thereby: destroying the foundation of the disease and giving the patient strength by building up the constitution 'arid assisting nature in doing its work. The proprietors' have so much faith in Its curative powers, that they offer One Huu- dred'Dollars for any case that it falls to cure. Send fqr list of Testimonials. Address F. T.

' For some time past the question o£ , the correctness of the tes'ts for color I blindness made by officials of the roads i who stylci themselves oculists have i been agitating the brotherhoods o£ loco motive engineers and firemen and the recent discharge of a number oC enpiu | eers on the New York Cenlrnl ha? i added to the excitement, and not onlj ' in New York, but In some other States it need not be a surprise if some legislation is asked which 'will protect the railway .employe against any injustice being done him by the color-tost examinations. The question of using col oral lights on railronil trains, it is said Is being seriously discussed by the members of the brotherhoods of locomotive engineers and liremen. The> assert that the tests ns applied by tht, oculists are confusing, and that it is n very uasy matter for a man to become confused In picking out particular shades of gveun and rod. It Is as..... that white lights can be ar- ..,.!gi>d so that they will answer jusi as well as colored lights for signals and lu such a way that it would bo im possible to have any confusion resulting from them. Atmospheric comli lions often confuse trainmen, partly, uhirly when trains are running fast With white lights arranged in tho form of a square, triangle or cross c'onfu sion would be possible only wbeu the lights were not'burning, and such a condition is liable to happen at auj time with colored as well as white lights. It is reported that the question of having a bill drafted and presented to the Legislature of New York, muk ing a uniform code of white light slg uals.on all railroads -in that State i; being discussed. Old railroad runners say .that such a law would undoubtedly work to the advantage of the railroads and railroad employes. RAILROAD NOTES.

HELPED BY DULL TIMES. /losing the Factories Mas Prolonged the Life of Gas. Kokomo Tribune: Prof. .T. C. Leach, State natural gas supervisor, has fin shed -taking measurements for a por- :lon of his next annual report ami the result is quite encouraging. The out- ook for the future of the neid Is decidedly, less gloomy than a year ago, vhen the prediction was freely made jy outsiders that gas was on Its last egs.in Indiana. •; ' ' ' Tlic'dranght on the .field during'the last, year was corislderahlj- loss tow :xpected. This is from three .causes, .i-st.'the mild winter, second, the-more CO' ujihic;:! use-of the:fr.el, third, the '• .'•;? iii.iny of the largest •macufac- 1 '. .';:,! :v;a'are closed down,' and others operating light handed owing to the dull times. Concerning the- situation, Prof. Leach says: "While I have not exact data of the entire gas field at hand, the indications are that there will not be as many ) wells drilled this year as 'there were last. On account of the mild winter, the effective effort that is being made by the manufacturers to husband their full supply and the fact that many of the large consumers are using but little gas tbi's fall, the draught on this field has not been as heavy as was expected. Consequently the necessity for new wells in many localities does not exist, Wliile the pressure is decreasing all over the field, the indications are that the supply will be ample for a number of years, especially for consumers in the belt. About 400 square miles of .good territory has not been invaded by pipe lines. "Next annual report in addition to the data specified by law will show the amount of 'wealth that has been .added to the State on account of the' natural gas, and amount of money paid to farmers and laborers of the gas belt on account rentals, labor, etc.. The result will probably show .that the farm- ersabove all should be Interested, in any effort to save this gaseous fuel. "The result -will surprise some. Have not complete reports. Madison county tax duplicate 1SS7, $9;SS7,095: 1805, $20,994,775. -Other couutic? have increased In same ratio. • "An examination of the manufactories and their fuel supply will not fail to convince any one that gas will be used for manufacturing purposes in the field long after its sale In cities supplied by pipe lines' has ceased to be profitable. A number of the larger- factories, not located in the hciirt of the belt have large pipe lines and suf-. ficleut territory to protect their interests; others more favorably located are .using gas'froin wells 1n the vicinity ol their factory, 200 feet of pipe.in some Instances being sufficient to connect the well with the burner. I have in niy mind, a factory working over four bun dred men, that has never had use but for one well, and It Is in splendid'con- dition at present showing a rock pressure of 240 pounds. The proprietors of this factory practice an economy commensurate with the value of the fuel. I could mention a number of factories with records equally us good. An examination will further show that other fuels caa be used in certain departments of a majority of the factories without serious inconvenience, that is to say, when the supply of gas becomes low, it can be well supplemented by coal and possibly oil."
