Ram Burned. The (5re department was called out yesterday morning- at 10:80 to ex tlngulsh tbe flames arising from the barn of Henry Baker who resides at No. 1317 Wright street. When the department arrived the fire had obtained -such a headway that but little could be done and the structure was entirely destroyed. . The loss Is about $200, and was insured for $106. Mr. Baker thinks that the barn was set afire by some boys who owe him a grunge. Friday evening he saw four young men lurking about the premises who were repeateply driven away. Just before the fire was'discovered the same boys were seen to jump from the hay mow and disappear down an alley. The matter will probably be Investigated by the police. ANOTHER JAIL DELIVERY.

MEMORIAL WAR BOOK COUPON. About four raontts ago Mahlon Roderick, the whilom Tipton township merchant WHS placed in jail upon the charge of forgery, a grand jury indictment preferring this charge against him upoo the complaint of Mr. W. K. Haney. Mahlon has been confined in the female department and has evidently been having a very lonesome time of it. He hes, owing 10 his alleged phyeleal and mental weakness, claimed to have been brought or by his long: confinement. h(?en given special privlleijreti by Sbcrilf Hombur^ and has, during (he past week or two been ongaped in small wo>-lf about, the jail and jail rutsidencj, bach as bortiE;; potatoes, greasing harnnps. otc.. etc. Last evening the Sheriff took up the supper for Mablon and hia only com. rade, a petty prisoner and upon the pretext of eome fault In the delivery of tho same returned down stair?, leaving the door unlocked behind him. About 9 o'clock when he was making the last round he discovered that Mahlon was gone and that the door was unlocked. Mahlon's comrade said that the former had discovered that the door was unlocked and bad come to the conclusion that he would descend to the jail office* and get an evening paper. It is likely that upon bis arrival there he found the outside door open and decided to walk out and try the free air of freedom again. He got fully three hours start of the Sheriff before his disappearance was discovered, and it is not unlikely that he Is gone forever, probably to join Shanty Hamilton, Sol Speed and Williams, the tramp highwaymnn. Judge White of the Parke circuit court has ruled in favor of J. S. Beach, the indicted banker of Terre Haute, on the proposition that his constitutional rights were invaded when his bank books were inspoctec by the prand jury. The court also held that Mr. Beach had not surrendered his constitutional rights in turning his books over to an assignee. they having been surrendered for the sole purpose of winding up his business. An appeal will bo taken to the supreme court. If Judge White's rulings are sustained, they render inr valid a number of indictments which have been returned against Mr. Beach [t is claimed, however, that be can still be prosecuted on the allegations that he embezzled $50,000 from the savingfi bank of which he was treasurer while he conducted the Prairie City Eiank, and that he embezzled money held in a fiduciary capacity as rust.ee of the bondsmen of ex-Treasurer Fitzpatrick, The ETOlntlon Of medical agents Is gradually rele- •ating tho old-time herbs, pills, draughts and vegetable extracts to the rear and bringing into general uee the pleasant and effective liquid axatlve, Syrup of Figs.
