Wbnt Kind or Trouble » Bad I>OK • Iflar CauHo— Two men lludlr Hurt and a Community Arrouecd. . Saturday afternoon the young son of Ed Qutllen who lives in Johnson's addition, West Side, was down In the neighborhood of the Kenneth quarries. While thero he was bit b y a dog belonging to a Hungarian laborer named Andy Beard Upon returning home and reporting the injury his father was much in. oonsed, and on Sunday started down to the quarry after the dog. He took a revolver, a shot gun and butcher knife on his dog hunting expedition. He wont to tbe Hungarian settlement and finding the dog shot it. This naturally led to trouble. In the resulting melee QuiUen shot the Hungarian owner of the dog, Beard, in the thigh with bis revolver. The latter jerked the shot gun from his assailant's hands and beat him over the head in a very dangerous manner. Both men are laid up and In the doctor's care. The Hungarian Is at St. Joseph's hospital; Quillon at bis home on the West Side. The former was subjected to a bullet searching process which resulted in the location and extraction of the leaden missile; the latter Is laid up with scalp injuries which may prove of a very serious character. A BAD SUNDAY BLA7E. Wire Calebs* In a Fire Trap anil a Neighborhood Is Endangered By tbe Fl»me«. Sunday afternoon about 2 o'clock fire broke out from some unknown cause in a frame stable at the rear of Campbell's laundry on Market street. This • building was consumed. The flames spread to the roof of a little one story brick building standing on the alley back of the Burgman building and damaged it to the extent of its roof and the contents. In this building dwelt Jacob Barren who does a carpet weaving business. Across the alley on Fifth street from this bullelng Allen Richardson owned an old frame building which was occupied by ' Jane Strawbridge. This building was also irreparibly damaged as was a stable at its rear. The flames from those old tinder boxes sent out sparks in every direction and for a time endangered good property, but the fire department succeeded in confining tbe fire to the older buildings. If the board of public improvements will not allow these buildings to be repaired the fire will have been a gain instead of a lose. Silas !• Sued. It may be remembered by Journal readers that a few days ago Detective Silas Morgon who was driving a raging steed, went to pass a carriage driven by Luey Cotner on the north pike, and that the passing of said raging steed got the horses driven by said Luey Coiner, mixed up and that a collision occurred which resulted in the 'great damage, to wit: the demoll- tionofthe said carriage driven bjr Luey Cotner, all to the great damage of the latter. As a result of this wayside accident the said Luey Cotner yesterday by his attorney, Capt. Frank Swigart, brought suit against tbe said Silas Morgan for damages in the sum o< $350, alleging that degree and extent of damages to his said carriage and to the safety of his, the plaintiff's life and limb by reason of the accident. This Is the first suit for damages by reason of a highway aool- dent that has been brought in this court for years and the progress of the same will be watched with interest.

ENGLAND'S GREATEST An official of the Pennsylvania lines who recently spent aeveral weeks In Europe gives some interesting info^ mation regarding the London & Northwestern railway, which appears in ono of tbe Pittaburg papers. This is tbe oldest and wealthiest of English roads, but be says English roads arc not up to American roads In traveling facilities. He adds that an Idea of the magnitude of this road may bo gathered from the fact that the com~ pany has ft working capital of over $585.000,000; aa annual revenue of $58.600,000 and an expenditure of about $32,000.000; it operates 2,700 miles of road; it conveys yearly 68,500,000 passengers and 87,750,000 tens of freightand minerals; it employs 62,000 people, 18,500 of whom are in the locomotive department; it owns 7,250 passenger care, 58,000 freight oars, 2,650 engines, 19 steamships and 3,600 horses. The number of stations of the Una is 800; there ate 82,000 signal levers in operation and 17,000 signal lamps lighted every nlgnt; the total mileage run by the company's engines collectively in one day is 170,562 miles, and during the whole year 62,250,000 miles. The safety of pas sengers IB the first and foremost con. slderation with the directors and the company's officials; the trains are equipped with the vacuum brake and the line is worked throughout on the absolute block system; each of the signal boxes Is la electrical communication with those on either side, and no train is allowed to pass a signal box until the preceding train has passed out of the section in advance and that section is perfectly clear. The permanent way is of the most perfect bul\d, and all tunnels, bridges and viaducts are constructed with solidity and thoroughness, while throughout the main portion (owing to the large traffic) four distinct tracks of steel rails are continually in use; the express trains run at a rate of forty- five to sixty miles per hour and are noted for their steadiness and for running on time. MB. PBCK APPOINTED. G. L. Peck has been appointed superintendent of the Richmond division of the Pan Handle, vice W. B. Leeds resigned. Mr. Peak was formerly train master of the Toledo division. Fan Handle engine B has been changed to No. 367. John Hartz of the Pan Handle boiler shop was in Delphi Sunday attending a funeral. Engineer Harry St. Clalr who has beem off duty for some time on account of sore eyefl, will return to work today. A branch of the American Railway Union was instituted at Danvlll*, III., Sunday. Tie new union comprises over 200 members, all C. & E. I. men. On Saturday the directors of the Fan Handle lines met and declared a semi-annual 2 per cent, dividend on the preferred stock, payable April 25 The condition of Conductor Theo. Tolley who was injured Saturday evenirg is improving, although his injuries will probably keep him off the road for some time. Judge Caldwell who rendered the famous decision In the Union Pacific case last week is being spoken of as a presidential candidate in 1896 by the railway men of the West. Engineer Jack Kennedy is s'owly recovering from a long spell of sick- j ness and is around town frequently. He will soon take charge of a gravel train engine, his condition not justifying him to go on the road yet. Sunday night was a busy night on the Fan Handle, especially for east bound freight trains. Eight sections of train 70 arrived here bolides a' number of other trains. The yard men report having had their hands full. John Malay, a section boss on tbe Columbus division of the Pan Handle lines, now ranks as the oldest man in time of service on the company's pay rolls. He helped build the ' road between Columbus and Newark. He is now in his eighty-sixth year and has a gang of men under him who execute his orders with alacrity. He is at hi* post in all kinds of weather. According to the Railway Age there are now 22,637 77 miles of railway projected and under construction. Texas leads with 2,108.50 miles while Delaware comes last with but 9 60 miles. Indiana shows 378.50 miles. The south and west show the greatest activity while the New England States present the smallest showing.. Of course a great many of the .projected lines will never bb built. Indianapolis Journal: The selection of E. A. Pock, a trainmaster, for}' superintendent of t,he Richmond dlvl- j slon of the Pennsylvania lines, and H. |- Bonebrske, another transportation man. for superintendent of the Louisville division, is a tow departure for the Pennsylvania people and will be very encouraging to other men on tbe linos. Heretofore only engineers of maintenance of way have been selected for promotion to division superintendents. Mr. Joseph Hill retired from ihe general suporintendency of the Vandalla lino April 1. Mr. Hill began railway work in 1850 as assistant engineer of the Columbus Piqua & Indiana, and from 1853 to 18C2 ho was with the Atlantic & Great Western as resident engineer, chief engineer and superintendent. He was then for four years cblef engineer of tbe C. C. & IC., and from 1869 to 1881 superintendent of the PitUburg. Cincinnati & St. Louis. He was appointed general superintendent of the Vandalla line In the latter year and • was made assistant general manager In July, 1887. He held tbe last named position until two or three months ago, when he was again given the title of general superintendent. floorer Item*. Fred Carson and J. J.

But few person* ;ire :ulept» in the:art of eating—by wliinh ia mean*: neither one's capacity iiiul enjoyment, with respect, to food nor that fjcnioa. for "knowins- how" to order a good- inccil—an inhtinct, by the \vay, that, men ;iro siM to posw.ss to a greater < ^ c ~ {•ree than women. In the present instance, the art of eutinff means simply the act, the performance of a rudimentary function of life i.i :v civilized, en- liuhtenoil and artistic manner. That this function is a mere survival of* far-ofT human past IM unquestioned. In the unregenerato present, however, we- rtre obliged to eat in order to live,. which brings vis back 1x5 the starting; point that few arc adepts in the art* It may be asserted that only persons-of the lowest grade lire thus unskilleA —that those of (jenuinely gentle habit need no instruction in the matter. Observation DroveR otherwise. Enter any .place where eating is in progress, anct see hoiv few faces are not distortedMi*; the endeavor to do justice to the daily bread at hand. The phrase "to feed' your face' 1 —synonymous in the west with "to cat"—has an uglier literal— ness than mipht at tirst be supposed. With the old-time railroad cry "Ten. minutes for refreshments.'" seemingly in his ears, the nvorag* restaurant^ patron stows, tilnffs. crams—if yoi*; please—into his one poor, overworfrei* mouth some fraction (asKuredly im.-.proper) of every edible within reach,. the mass beintr literally irrigated witha gulps of sundry liquids. All, too. iifc tempo prestissimo. vSurely the averagx*- parent i« criminally careless in regard, to teaching his children how. to eat. or- we should not have so many specimens, of the undisciplined gorger. Lord Byron's "Never call a girl pret-- ty until you have seen her cnt" disqualifies, thanks to early nt>(fleet, many: a,, at other times, prepoHSosslnft eoua*»*- nance. Proper eazintf ptayn an important part in hygiene. Any one who has CT*T opened the simplest physiology knows that the first and fundamental proc«Mi of digestion is roaatioatton, while ev.ery newspaper reader in aware that, to tho rig-id practice of thirty-two chows to a bite, does Mr. Gladstone owe his uninterrupted health of mind and body. The esthetic side of the subject may perhaps appeal more strongly to women, however. A light, graceful. . action of the jaws and the sensitiye- muscles about the mouth induces pret~ tineas and plumpness, while the hea»y- facial gymnastics of the vulgar eater- coarsen both features and expression.. If a woman needs to be convi need that her proceis of chewing and swallowing )s offensive to the sight, let her, bat for a few moments, eat opposite a mirror. She will then see herself as other*. §ee her, and if she has one atom at pride she will wish to correct her f ivulte- An atom of imitativoness will do th» rest. The real secret ol vulgar eating- lie* in taking too large mouthful*. If the edible be bread, biscuit, etc., let It be- first broken with the finger*, alter- which a sufficiently small portion. m*y> be bitten off and eateu. Th« fork suffices for all other foods, only a smalt portion of each being pnt into-'tb* mouth at a time. If this prooeat is not continued in too quick sucooMion, tkerec need be no difficulty about an e»»y>»nd; graceful disposition at one's dinner- To revert to the hygienic aspeot, imall bites, besides their beautifying properties, take big bites oft the doctor's bill. "You ask me, What i* th« maln,oausn. of dyspepia?" once said a. famous physician. "Largely, not chcwhnfr." It is a physical impossibility to chew a large mouthful so thoroughly as a. small one. "I never see your boltin' equal, Pip,**" remarks Joe to the hero of "ttreat Bx~- pectations," at which Mrs. Joe, it maybe remembered, summarily doses the* little victim with "tar water," as *. combined corrective iand precaution. If necessary, let us administer "t»r- wnter," or anything else, to brinjr about a nicer appreciation of the art of eating.—N. Y. Times. Wheri H» Ml»cd It.
