The election Tuesday is of great inr portanee to tho citizens ofLogansport On the one side IB a ticket nominated by interests hostile to the people of Logansport. On tho other side la ticket nominated by a convention earnestly seeking to promote tbe best interests of the people. Tbe people remember tho bitter attack the Pharos made on its own party; they rernem ber that the Chronicle, which is not a party paper and which raises its rev enuo by the aale of papers on tbe street, suddenly devoted columns to an attnck on the council and distributed papers free over the city, Its editor saying that $800 had been raieod for that purpose. What was back of those attacks? Who paid the $800? What secret foe of tho people was at work? Who subscribed the $2,000 democratic campaign fund now on hand? These questions ought to sot tho people to thinking. Tho treachery of the Pharos in the gas fight' and its deceit now is enough to alarm every loyal democrat. Its miserable attempt to array one class of citizens against another shows that no method is too desperate to be resorted to. Tho Journal has faith in the people, In their judgment and calm consideration and somehow feels assured that next Tuesday victory will be with U; yet it urfres unceasing effort. Tho city IB 350 democratic. Those who captured the democratic primaries counted on that aid counted on hold. ing it for thoir purposes. There must bo a full republican vote and a liberal democratic vote to overcome this. Theie must be no over-confldenco and no neglect. It is a time for every loyal citizen to do his duty. THE A. P. A. dodge Is very thin. The people of Logansport have avoided agitation of this sort. The Pharos and a few democratic politicians have attempted to stir up strife of this sort. No class will condemn at the polls as strongly aa will tho Jatholic people of Logansport. They will emphatically denounce the attempt to stir up strife for democratic purposes. THE gas company and other Interests defeated all but one of the democratic candidates for re-election. Whoever votes the democratic ticket votes to indorse this and that IB all there IB to it. Are you a democrat? Do you Intend to disgrace your party by voting to BUBtaln what some of your eaders have done!* To VOTE the straight republican ticket stamp in the square around the eagle at the head of the ticket and do not stamp anywhere else. To vote or any one republican candidate stamp the iquare at the left of all the candidates on any ticket you wish to vote for and do not stamp any square at the head of any ticket.

Thai EBrlKht Little Woman Dwell* on the Vulno JLoj'nl Friendship. Bab ol l Correspondence, NEW YIIIIK. April 2>, 1804. If It is a little hard to be ill, then is one question solved during a pro traded illruas, uud that is, who one': friends ;u-o. It takes more than t ruero curious interest to induce people to come and see you when you are wreck, when you arc inclined to bo cross, and when you wo not quite as interesting as you might be. Si? weeks of seclusion In my chamboi have proved to mo who the people aro who really lovo mo for mysolf, a who like me for themselves. The other day I had two visitors who re ceived a royal welcome—indeed, doubt if royalty ever got sueh a wel come. I say two vititors, because I really couldn't count the third as belonging to this world, it was 60 (lain' ty and so white and BO | flower-like it seemed as if'It must belonjj to a lane where the breezes wore always sot and warm, where the flowers bloomed all the year around, and where no language was spoken except that understood by the birds, the blossoms and the babies. BAH AS ENTERTAINER. My visitors sent in no cards—they appeared. They were Maggie and Mis' Connolly, and the present that the stork brought to Maggie two months apo. I never saw such baby. It did nothing but lauffh and maku those cooing sounds that from a baby's lips mean "I love you." No baby who lived in a great mansion and who represents many millions compared with that one. Its dainty little clothes had all been made by Maggie, and with the poetry peculiar to her people she said, "I couldn't let a, machine stitch a seam, I was afraid it would hurt the little bloseom." And so Maggie's baby like that one belonging to the millionaire, had ita little frocks sewed by hand, but each stitch in the Blossom's clothes represented so much love, while each one in the rich baby's only meant so much money, Mis' Connolly bad brought me several presents. First, there was a bottle of medicine warranted to cure me at once; then there was a charm ;'certain to bring good luck, which had been gotten from the Chinese laundryman, and last of all there was a mezauza, which had come from my little Jewish friend, and which,:, .put against the door, would keep out the evil spirits.. Magglo brought the baby and that was enough. She laid It in my lap and it laughed until the fox terrier wagged his tall with delight. And then Maggie told mo the news of the day. She was a little flurried over something that had juet happened. AN IRISH WOMAN'S STOBY. Said she: "Well, MiflB. I was slttln' sewln', for a little while because it wasn't time for my man to come in, and everything was ready for his din. ner, when there was a knock at the door, I called out to come in, and a lady walked in. At least, Mies, she looked like a lady, and yet I don't think she could have been ono, for a real lady wouldn't do what she did. She had a paper in her hand, and she told me right away that she had been appointed to go among the poor and got the women to sign the bill that would Rive them all a .vote. Well, ;hat made me mad, so I said: 'You've come into the wrong place if you're lookln' for the poor; I ain't poor. My man makes enough to keep mo, and 've got a comfortable home and more blessings than most people.' She did of flushed up and then she went on and said: 'Do you know what the vote will do for you?' And says I: No; what will it?' 'Well,' «he said, It will let you go out in the world to earn your own living, you'll have your own money; you can do as you please, and you can send people to Confess to represent you and your opin- ons.' Then I did laugh, Miss. And ; answered her pretty quick, for I was roxed. Says I: 'I had quite enough if goln' out into the world andearnln' my own llvin' before I was luoky mough to marry a man who takes care if me. I know what goln' out In the rorl.d (o work means, and I'm thlnkin' 'ou don't, else you wouldn't apeak of _t BO glibly. I know what It means to ake care of yourself, and I advlBe >very girl I know to got a husband to .o it for her as soon as she can. As or havln 1 my own money, why I have now. My man brings in hla wage* every week, and after we've got to live on and allowed a little bit go in each, of our pockets, rest goes in the bank in my name. And ai to as I please! Why, ma'am, my _ Immy lets ma do Ml like except when he »ees I'm wrong, and then he ells me why, and I aln'i such, a fool not to know the difference between Ight and wrong. | don't want any., ody to wprewnt raa In Congress;.. he nd oln' I've got something .to represent me on earth and In heaven; and, Mies. I just took the baby out ot her cradle and showed her what a real treasure was, SHE TOSSED IIEI1 HEAD UP and says she: 'My good woman, when you have the vote, you'll see the folly of having children, and you won't talk all this nonsense about heaven. You will be educated beyond all that,' '•I hugged the buby closer because I was afraid I would say something I'd bo very sorry for, and I'm mightily fifeard I wasn't altogether polite, for says I: 'You aro a beaut to talk about the folly of taeln' a mother. You're not a woman, for you haven't got Iho first feolin' of decency, and I want to toll you, you had bolter not go around sayin' things to the Irish women, else some one of them will knock you over the head. How daro you, you who aro a perfect stranger to mo, come here talkin' about things that only concern my husband and me? I've got as good a right to come into your house and ask you some sensible questions. I could ask you why you don't know how to make a homo, and you wouldn't have sense enough to know that it was because you were too indecent to bear children for your husband; that you lived with him for your bread and butter, but that you weren't a wife 'cause you shirked a wife's duties; and I want to tell you ma'am, that the door is open, and I want you to go. My home is as much mine as yours is. and because we work honestly, that doesn't give you a right to corce here with your impertinent questions.' 'Well, Miss, it's true I might have been a little moie polite, but I can't quite explain to mysolf what right that woman had to come into my place and mako herself that free." •She hadn't any, Maggie, and I think you treated her qnlto properly. I saw Mia' Connolly was getting very red in the face, so I asked: "Did she go to see you, Mis Connolly?" 'She did, Ma'am," answered Mis Connolly. "She come in and SHE SMELT TLIE MKAT A-COOKIN'. ' and aays she, 'When you sign this paper and get a vote, you won't waste your money on meat, you will bo pure minded and eat nothin' but vogeta bles." I give her one look, and baoted the mutton, and says I "I'm feodin' man, not a dude." And then she looked over in the corner, and 'she saw my Charlie and Isadora lookin' at a book, and sho saw Charlie's crutch and says she, "If you bad had a vote, you would have never brought a child like that into the world." Then Miss, it's a dreadful thing to say, bat I cursed her there and then in good Irish. Probably she don't speak it; there is a good many people in this world. But she know It wasn't a blessing. And sajs I at the end of it, 'That boy's been tho joy of our lives The knowin' that It would hurt his feelin's if his father wasn't right has lopt Connolly a good man, and his weakness has made me feel gentler to every sorrowful thing on earth,' Then I begun to cry, and sho says, •With a vote women wouldn't be havln' to take care of children'—she jot just that far when something in iiy eye told her to get out, and Ma'am ,t wasn't refined, and I wish I could Dlame myself for it, but there was a main of dirty water standln' there, and I throw It on her, and says I, •Take that, you low-minded thing for oomln' down and talkin' to decent women as they never were talked to before." I told Connolly about it when he came in, and I thought he would say, 'Mother, I wouldn't a done that,' but he give three cheers for me, and kissed me like as If we'd just been iweotheartin'." I DID LAUGH, and in my heart of hearts I agreed with Connolly. Then I looked down t the blossom in my arms, and I -ondored how any woman could ask why women bore children. By this time Maggie and Mis' Con Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U.S. Gov't Report Baking Powder PURE letter writer, there must bo an 6"cnt when he is heard from. So when I asked for Billy, Maggie brimmed over with laughter, and she said: "Well. Mies, I hope you won't think that Billy was unfaithful, for after all he loved that poor gl-1 as only a boy does, but now ho is a man, and he wrote a letter to Jimmy which, of course, ho meant for all of us, and in it ho says he's got a sweetheart, and he's going to be married. They can't come here on their weddin' trip, for that would take too much money, but they're goln' to save up and come on after a while to seo us. Oh, Miss. what a thing it was that Billy got a chance! Every night when I say my prayers I just add thU: 'Oh, good God, if there is a boy who is standin' between right and wrong, give him a chance YOU THE SAKE OK THAT BLKSSKD j MOTHER I who bore the Saviour of us all.'" I "That's it. Maggie," said I, "that's the prayer wo all want to say. But there has got to be something besides a chauce given to tho boy. There has got to be the loving encouragement from his own friends, tuch as you and Jimmy and Mis' Connolly gave to him." "Well, Miss," she answered, "we didn't do any more than was neighborly." • -That was all tho Good Samaritan did. Maggie," I added, "and it is the being neighborly that keeps men and women good and kind; it ia the tbink» ing bow to mako somebody else happy that causes a wall-spring of pleasure in your heart, and it is the helping hand of a neighbor, a real neighbor, that holds up many a sinner. Sometimes I wonder if all the world wouldn't be better if there stood a neighbor just by each time somebody fell; a neighbor who understood, not only what tho sin was, but what tho temptations were; who knew not only how easy it was to fall, but how hard it was to stand up straight. I think, Maggie, when God made you, He made a good neighbor, and now what you have gottc do is to mako your blossom a great power. You know bow to do It; it will come to you." BAB TO BE A GODMOTHER, And then, with many blushes, Maggie told me that they had been waiting to christen the baby until I was well enough to be godmother, and that sho was anxious to talk about its name. She didn't believe it ever would have only one, Mis' Connolly and she called it "Blossom;'' Misier Connolly called It "Swetle;" Jimmy called it "Lovely;" Charley and lea- doro called It "Queenie;" because it ruled, everybody, and they were all willing slaves. She whispered what ebe wanted to name It, but I said. •No. Lot each of them call it by the name that seems meet beautiful to them, but give to her the name of th perfect mother—Mary," Just then the darling wakened up and when 1 saw ita eyes, I asked where it got the color from; for hers like Jimmy's are as blue as the sky while tho baby's are brown. So sh< laughed and said: "Woli, Miss, the] explain to you why I wanted to name her BAB. THE AGE OF STEEL. lolly were having a cnp of tea, and while Mis' Connolly dilated on how ea should be made and what a bless- It was, I asked Maggie how Billy was getting along. You remember Billy? The poor boy that, through leing In bad company, was sent to tho jenltentiary, and when he came home n Christmas Day found the girl he oved dead, and he never knew what ter life had been while he waa away. Through somebody's help Billy went [own South, and as he is not a great Bosomcr'n Discovery and Obatncloi la tbe Way of It» Perfection. The man who inaugurated the reign of steel by so vastly increasing its uses, and invented a method of manufacture which makes tho product even lower in cost than tho kind of metal it was destined so largely to replace, ranks among the world's greatest inventors, though, like other remarkable creative minds, ho did not reach his goal unaided by the skill and genius of co-laborers. The pneumatic process of making steel, hy which Sir Henry Bessemer added more to the wealth of the world than any man of his generation, furnishes a curious example ot what Tyndall called the scientific use of th« imagination. Bessemer, like Siemens and Thomas, who share with him the honors of modern iron metallurgy, was not a practical worker in the metals, hut. unlike them, he was absolutely Awaroed Highest Honors-World's Fair. Tfce only Pn« Cr««n of Tartar Powder.-No AmmonU; No Alum, ed in Millions of H?mes—40 Years the Standard. ignorant of aiiffht beyond superficial chemical knowledge. When he -rasped the conception of burning out the impurities of pig- metal by Hie oxidizing- power of air, and thus reducing the excessively carlmrizC'l material to the malleable state, he knew nothing of the traditions and science of the problem he was daring enough to attack. Had he been an adept, it is more than probable that he would have been so imprisoned by tlie past as never to have reached out, so daringly into the- unknown. He bcp;an his experiments secretly in a small way, after having visited numerous iron works to make himself acquainted with existing processes. .It \vas not until the end of eighteen months that the fundamental principle of his great future success, became perfectly clear to him—that of rendering- cast-iron malleable by » powerful air-blast blown throughout' the charge, and not merely oa the top, as in the old finery and the puddlingi furnace. The heat developed was so great as. to keep even wrought iron fused, and tlie happy inventor found by and by that he had succeeded in making- iroa in small quantities. It cannot be related here how he foug-ht through tho early difficulties o£ his work, and how the iron masters of the age were alike astonished and delighted at his primary results. The shod;: to the inventor was scarcely less great when ho discovured that in making- iron inlarg-o quantities his process did not answer all his anticipations. His earlier successes had been with pig iron smelted from hifjh-i*r:ide ores, comparatively free from sulphur or phosphorus. The attempt to work the process commercially involved the us« of the common pig-, which made up the bulk of the smelting- material. The intense heat of the furnace burned out the carbon and the silicon, but left the phosphorus and sulphur untouched. This might have been remedied by using- .pure pigs. containing but traces of these elements; but a graver defect attended' the process. In many of the operations the ingot had no consistency; it) crumbled under the hammer or in the rolls. In the language of the shop, it was rotten. The process, which, within a month of its first public announcement at the Cheltenham meeting- of the British association in 1S56, hxi broug-ht to its discoverer the sum of twenty-seven thousand pounds sterling) in advance license fees, was now con« demncd by scientists and practical me.nl as a visionary scheme.—Harper's Maff~ azine. —Very Fastidious—He had thrown himself at the feet of the girl he loved and on bended knees ho pleaded his cause.
