THE ELECTRIC LIGHT QUESTION The proposition eubrniUed to the council last evening on tho electric light question provides that tho city shall pay $80 per year for each street light instead of $100 as at present and that in three years tho city shall own its own plant which will bo tbon self supporting thereby saving- the city $10,000 per year paid for light. The report provides that tho levy made last year for this purpose shall bo used and that lots on tho raco shall bo traded for machinery and buildings. This gives tho city light at lcS3 coat than at present perlisrbt and Insures a savin;? of A10.000 per year fit tho end of throe yoHM. Tho Journal is against monopoly. It is in favor of tho people making the profit out of public Institutions and It commends this attack of tho council on the electric light octopus. Tho council will most Friday evening- to consider this proposition and tho Journal hopes that the interests of the people will be properly considered. SPEAKER REED'S method has been adopted by the present Congress. That 'is a reflection on tho present Congress but a vindication of Speaker Reed. It la a striking fact that democracy has camped on the abandoned tields of republicanism, and In this case that fact is shown clearly. Read's rules were approved by the country and they became tho recognized law of tho land. Democracy has just awakened to that fact. No MATTER what the local issues every citizen, regardless of party, should vote for better times. The Journal believes that tho citizens of Logansport will do this. The coming election will indicate what tho people of Logansport think of the present administration in national affairs. It should be condemned by everybody and tbo Journal b«llevos that it will. THE Pharos asserts that Mr. McKee was the Journal candidate. The Journal had no candidate but had this been true Mr. McKoo would not bo Injured by such association. The Journal asserts that Mr. Fender was the Pharos candidate and leaves It to the public to say whether Mr. Fender does not deserve defeat because of this? THE Journal acknowledges the receipt of an autograph copy of "Love affairs of a worldly man" written by Miss Malbello Justice formerly of this city now living In Chicago. A more extended notice will be given later. THE public Interest In the election suggests that a fortune could be made by opening a museum and exhibiting the city treasury "collaterals" at'10 oenta a head. , THE DEMOCRATS HAVE FIVE MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL AND WITH THE MAYOR'S VOTE CAN CONTROL THE BODY.—Pharos, May 6th. 1892. THE OPHTHALMOMETER. It Is a Veritable Soaroh Light for Weak Eyes. A \Tnii<l<irrul IiiHtninii-ni. Which Throw* n lien in <>r El-ctrin I.lRlit Into tho HUllllUl Ej-O i"" 1 I'OCIltCH llio Troubln. One ot the most, remarkable inventions which lias lately "omc into practical use in the hospitals of Now Yurie is the oplahalmometcr. It is used, says tin: World, for examining- the eye \vhen it is in a, state of disease, nnd it illustrates how uconnitely modern sdenc-e lias come to deal with the ailments to which the flush is apt to fall heir. The invention of this now instrument was found to be a necessity. It is an iicknowlgdtfod faetamong- specialists in diseases of the eye that poor eyesight is on an aliinniiifr incruase in tiie United States, especially amonfr children. The number of school children who wear eye-tflasses continually in New York city alone, and especially in Hoston, is double or treble what it was several years uffo. The very larjre increase ot 'work which this has occasioned for the doctors in the eye hospitals rendered it extremely ilitU- cult for them to carry .on their examinations as they had heretofore done. The old method of examining tho cvo was to station the patient at somo d'istaiico from a cliiirtun which were. printed letters of various si/.es. If tho person tinder examination was perfectly clear-minded, a more or le.ss accurate result was obtained: but in tho case of ii child or a person dull of comprehension the result was not generally so cood. The ophthalmometer docs away with all this uncertainty, and by its use the verie-st tyro fresh from the medical college can make the most accurate diagnosis. It is the invention of J'rofs. .1 aval and. Schiotz, of Paris, and was introduced into the hospitals of New York by Dr. D. B. St. John Koosa. It is a combination of a telescope and a largo painted disk, on which is pro- TUE orilTHAT.MO.METEn. jectcd an intense electric light. In front of tho disk is a small wooden mask-like frame in which the patient places his face. On the disk is a sc- ries of divisions. The doctor looks through tho, telescope at tho patient's eye. The effect of the intense light is to cause the numbers and divisions on the disk to be reflected and to show out clearly on the cornea, or rear wall, of the patient's eye. Connected with the disk is a sliding arrangement by moans of •which any desired point on the disk may he located, so that in the case- of astigmatism, for instance, it is only necessary for the physician, after locating the sonroc of the trouble, to make a record of its exact location on the disk. Since tho retleetion on the. eye corresponds exactly with the disk itself, ho has no trouble in doing so. Of course, the different markings arc meant to show the. different degrees of aifliction, and after the record is made it is the easiest thing in the world for the doctor to prescribe tho propel- pair of glasses to be worn. And the best part of it all is that this point is established beyond n doubt. People need have no fear hereafter of making u mistake in the selection of their eyeglasses, for that selection is made according to an absolute rule, and not, as in the old method, according to their sensations merely. Having the eyes examined by electricity, which is really what itamounts to by this method, is as yet something of a novelty, even among physicians. Some years ago the celebrated Dr. Helmhol?. devised an instrument much after the fashion of this one, bnt it was too complicated to be of use. Tho Orl(tln»l Troy Pound. ! In 18U8, when Adams was president of the United States, congress authorized or appointed a commission "to bring to this country a troy pound adjusted to the British standard." When the commission returned the president received the package and broke tho seal in the presence of the distinguished men of America. This original weight standard is now in the mint at Philadelphia, and is not regarded as being of ideal accuracy by any means. It is made of a very poor quality of brass, is rough in textun; and hollow. According to a law now in force, each state is entitled to a copy or duplicate of this standard, • Newipuper* of tlin World.

It is composed of men and women who unite in a company i solely for tho purpose of studying cacti. They have found much of Interest In these curious desert plants, and their periodical exhibitions are much esteemed by such as are invited to be present. Tho cactus would seem to be rather a dry growth to investigate, but the club which bears itH name wholly refutes this supposition. SERGEANT BROWNELL. Hl« Dentil Recall* u Historic Incident at Gr«':»t Internet, A historic incident, and an event which at that time created widespread popular excitement, is recalled by the death of Capt. Frank Edwin Urownell, which occurred at Washing-ton, D. C., recently. Brownell was a private in the Eleventh New York infantry, Ellsworth's Kiro Zouaves, who in tho spring of ISHl responded to tho call for volunteers in defense of the union. Ellsworth, the colonel of the regiment, had accompanied President Lincoln on his perilous journey from Springfield, 111., to Washington, and had become prominent among the eager patriots who Hocked to the national standard Highest of all in Leavening Power.-—Latest U. S. Gov't Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE SERGEANT FIIANK 10. lIROVi'NELL. [Frama Wur Time I'hetoicrapU.1 on the outbreak of the war. Given a command as colonel, lie proceeded, in May of that year, to the town of Alexandria, in Virginia, a few miles below Washington, and while marching through the streets discovered a confederate flag on the Marshall house, displayed in honor of the passage of the ordinance of secession. He atonce entered the house and, ascending to the roof, hauled clown the obnoxious Hag. As lie was coining downstairs the proprietor of the house, ono Jackson, came out of a side room and shot the daring intruder dead. Brownell thereupon shot and killed Jackson, thus avenging the first blood shed in the civil war. At this distance from the event it seems incredible that such an exploit should have created the profound excitement which followed upon this; but the country had not yet tasted of the horrors of fratricidal strife, public feeling at the north was intensely nlive. and the avenging of the, assassination of a loyal soldier of the union attained in the pnljlic mind a significance which did not properly belong to it. Browntll, who was a native of Troy, N. Y., received a medal of honor from congress for his act, and was also honored by medals and other tokens from eiti/.ens of Troy, New York city, Boston and Providence. He served subsequently in the infantry, and was promoted to a captaincy. He was a mem- bei of Post No. 28 of Chicago, and of thoCommanderyof the Loyal Legion of Washington. Ho held a clerkship in the pension office at the time of his death. His age was fifty-four years. A VICTIM OF DRINK. The Count<!»» Dfcalyo'n Sail Story Told by Her I.tttlc Daughter. A pathetic story moved even tho old rounders in the llarlem (N. Y.) police court the other morning. Many were moved to tears by the unfolding of a talc of misfortune 9y which a distinguished family had been broken up. It all came out by the arrest of Harriet Decalyo. She had been acting strangely in Madison avenue near One Hundred and Tenth street. Policeman Grosky, of the East One Hundred and Fourth street station, was passing the corner mentioned, when his attention JIAllGUEBITE SISOS IN' COURT. was attracted by a multitude surrounding a woman who had with her a bright little five-year-old girl. The woman was kneeling on the stone flagging in the attitude of prayer. Her head was bowed, her hands were uplifted, and she was praying earnestly. A cross lay by her side, and on the bottom of it in big letters were the words "Our Saviour." Both the woman aud the child were I taken to the Hiiriem hospital, where it was found that the former \v:is suiiVr- ing with delirium tivniens. She was transferred to Hellevne hospital, and the child was placed in the care of Agent Moore, of the Children's society. Tho child, an unusually bright liiue girl, appeared in the Harlem police court. She said that her name was Marguerite Birdie Letitia Doealyo. ami she seemed very proud of it. She santf several pretty little pieces, which sin: said wore of her own composition, ami then she told the sad story of her mother's life. Agent Moore, who had made- an investigation of the woman's ease 1 , said that her husband was a French count. He came here, several years ai;o. Somo time after his arrival he became insane and was taken to Ward's island, where he subsequently died. Since the count's death the woman has he- come a confirmed drunkard. Sho brooded over her husband's sad fate until she became almost insane from grief, and linally sought relief in intoxicants. AMERICAN ANTIQUITIES. Rcllttit of » I'l-ople Now Only Known by Their Mynti>rlou« Moiiuininitn. We are too much in the habit of regarding onr country as being comparatively new, with no such antiquities as belong: to Europe. Hut this is a mistake. Xearly everywhere between tho great lakes and the gulf of Mexico there arc to be found mounds, the builders of which probably lived before the Cnesars ruled over Rome. In Arizona and New Mexico the 1'u- eblo Indians still live in those fortilied structures which the Spaniards so much admired, and to which they gave the name o£ C;i_sas Grandes. There may, too, still be seen in the clefts of precipices in Colorado and Xew Mexico houses which were occupied by the cliJl' dwellers. From these heights the people, of whom there is no record, looked out for the coming of thoir enemies. As the foe was seen in the valley, the ladders, which connected it with the high fastnesses, were drawn up, arid the rocks which composed the steps of the rude path were thrown down. The dwellers on the heights were then more secure than were the robber barons of the Rhine, or the Scottish chiefs, when they raised the drawbridge that com- niundcd the entnuici-. to fort or castle. In the Mississippi valley there are remains of which the Indians, who inhabited this country when the whites first came to it, did not have even a traditionary knowledge. Hidden away in the forests of Mexico and Central America there are massive ruins, of which the Mexicans in Monte/.uma's time know nothing. When tho Spaniards conquered Mexico and Peru, the civilization of these countries was of a high order. And yet it was doubtless preceded by a still higher civilization, for there have been found great pyramids, with stones ill them as massive as those of Egypt, statuary, paintings and sculptures, all beyond the power or skill of the Mexicans. An expedition is nqw on its way to Palcuquo, a deserted city, situated near the southern border of Mexico, and in the midst of a dense forest In 1T50, stories reached Spain of a wonderful city in Mexico, which covered fifty square miles, but it was not until 17S7 that an expedition was sent out to ex- omine it Capt, Del Rio was at the head of the exploring party. Ho felled the trees in the forest and then set them on fire, thus securing a clear field for his operations, but his report lay unnoticed among the government archives until 18-22. In 1805 Capt du Paux made a thorough examination of the ruins, and in 18S9 they were explored by Stephens aud Catherwooil, who gave to tho world the most popular account of them which yet exists. Stephens tells us that the leading building, which was probably a temple, is situated on an artificial mound, 40 feet in height, H10 feet wide in front and rear and 300 feet deep on the side. Tho building which crowns its summit is 228 feet front by ISO feef in depth, and the ruins are 25 feet in height A study of them sliced that they originally consisted of buildings in a quaclrang-le, inclosing a large courtyard, at the upper end of which there had apparently been other massive structures. In front of tho quadrangle there was a broad flight of steps, and at the top were fourteen doors, each nine feet wide, with piers between them six feet in width. In and about the ruins were many statues or statuary pillars, each cprauosed of a monolith from six to Awamea highest Honors-World's Fair. ^.Baking Powder The only Pore Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum.
