The postoffice at Huntington, Ind., was
robbed about ten days ago, and in a fight with
the thieves the city marshal was t hot and
wounded and one of the burglars, named
JJewcomb, was shot dead by another, named
"Shamus" O'Brien. The gang have all been
entered, excepting O'Brien, for whom a re
ward is offered. The Urbane Citizen of Fri
day says of him:
Ekimos O'Brien is one of the most daring
men en the road, and although only about
twenty-three years of age, has made a bad
record. He was sent to the penitentiary from
Springfield when but sixteen years of age, for
knocking a man down on the public streets
in day light, and robbing him. He received
eighteen months sentence for it He was only
eut a short time until he was arrested here
for highway robbery, and was again sent to
the penitentiary for three years and a half.
His term expired only a year ago. Besides
the two terms in the penitentiary he has had
a number of jail sentences tor petty offences.
Be now says that he has been over the road
twice and before he will go again he will die.
He is heavily armed and is not slow to uee
arms, when necessary. Netvcomb, the man
he accidentally shot, was arrested here once
for horse stealing and taken to Dayton, where
he was a member of the famous Blackburn
gang and was sent to the penitentiary.

caboose, No. 101, standing on the Champion
works switch, between East and York streets,
at tbe head of Central avenue. The roof and
sides were burned partly off, but tbe lower
partot tbe car was saved by quick work of
the firemen, although the car was in a bright
blaze when discovered by people living in the
vicinity. Those in charge at the round house
say that tbe caboose came in yesterday and
bad been standing on the siding all night
without any fire in it, as far as they knew,
and the supposition is a lot ot tramps whe

car and, either intentionally or accidentally,
let it on fire. The loss is estimatsd at $T5 to

appealed to Commissioner Price, of tho In

was an attempt made yesterday by three
tramps to wreck the east-bound Sante Fe

there were no stops betweeen Topeka and

rived here, when he locked the doors of the
car and demanded their fares or threatened
to have them arrested. Opening a window
they escaped and walking down the track
broke a lock on the switch and turned it.
The engine was ditched bat the rest of the

and Tea Parties. Society Personals.
Other Notes of Interest to Society
. The aesthetic craze was but short-lived. Its
tidal wave swept '-over land from sea to sea,"
and receded rapidlj. But, it left in its wake
the debris of many tasteful ideas; many
hints of comfort and beauty which, acted
upon by the ready wit and strong acquisition
faculties of our American house-mothers,
have brought forth excellent results. It is
well that it surged in upon us even if the
source of its rise was in a whirlpool of
extravaganzas, for it has educated
the incipient artist of every home-
circle, and given a curvilin-r turn to the
stiff, rectangular usage of the old-time fur
nishings. Never in tbe history of our country has
there been a time when beauty of surround
ing was so Imperative, and its need was the
precursor of so much artistic effort.
The modern screen is an aesthetic excres
ence, but one which cannot well be lopped
off. Tbe home-maker wonders what she used
to do without its graceful break lines. It
alters perspectives, creates alcoves, builds
up corridors and throws out angles. It
is not only "a thing of beauty" with
its panels growing flowers and rushes, but it
is an article of utility, henceforth to be in
corporated in the very body of household in
dispensable. The harp screen, with three panels; tbe
smaller end of each struck off, and each pan
el decreasing in size; the whole shaped like
"The harp which once through Tara's halls" Ac?
is occasionally making its appearance in the
drawing-room. Its effect, however, is not so
charming as that of our older friend, and its
existence will not be so continuous.
It always amuses the "gallery gods" when
Hamlet, in the interview with his mother,
aroused by a noise behind "the arras," crie8
out: "How, now? A rati" and makes a
pass through tbe scenery, killing Polonins.
It is all the funnier because the scenery
usually represents tbe solid wall, and leaves
the god wondering why it is called "the
arras." It is now permissible to hang the
fiat walls of drawing-rooms with curtains
much In tbe style of the old-fashioned arras,
which were intensified portitri, draping
panels and concealing recesses.
We have lately seen a representation of a
sixteenth century sitting-room, which in
nearly all its appointments might be taken
for one of to-day. Thus history repeats it
The reason why it is correct in society par
lance to speak of a dinner or reception as
"pretty" or "handsome" is because it is
judged almost altogether by its effect from an

SECRET SOCIETT MOTES.
K. of P.
The officers-elect of Division No. 44 were
installed, last Wednesday evening, by Sir
Knight O. P. Bradford. This being the first
time that tbe divisien was opened in regular
form, it was done in a very creditable man
ner, dispensing with the books entirely, and
at no time referring to them. The officers
for the next year are: Sir Knight Commande-,
W. L.Lafferty; Sir Knight Lieutentnt Com
mander, CoL J. B. Fellows; Sir Knight Her
ald, G. W. Wagner; Sir Knight Recorder,
T. J. Monahan; Sir Knight Treasurer, W. R.
Burnett; Sir Knight Guard, Howard Hansel ;
Sir Knight Sentinel, David C. Blair. There
are thirty-one members in the division, all
young and enthusiastic Sir Knights, ready at
all times to do their duty, and they are ably
seconded by the ladies who, by their own
efforts, provided abundantly for the banquet
at the institution of the division, and have
since presented the Sir Knights with what is
beyond question the finest regulation flag in
the possession of any division of the Uniform
Rank in the Supreme Jurisdiction. Har
mony and unity prevails. No. 44 is a credit
to the city and to the Order.
To Brother Justus H. Rithbone. of Wash.
ington City, belongs the honor of organising
an oroer wuose great odjsci 11 tne nnion 01
men into a common brotherhood. In the
beautiful story of Damon and Pythias he saw
an example which teaches men the power
and utility of friendship, and awakens high
and noble resolves, and tends to tbe develop
ment of all those qualities that throw lustre
over man's nature.
The Sir Kn'gbts of No. 44 will remember
that next Wednesday evening is regular
drill, and it is urged that every Sir Knignt
be present that evening to learn the full de
tails of the parade on tt e following day. Let
no excuse keep you away.
Tbe joint committee from tbe two divis
ions decided to have a short parade next
Thursday evening. No. 44, although quite
young, will make an honest effort to tarn
out in creditable numbers, hardly expecting
to have anything like the old division will.
The executive committee who have charge
of the arrangements for entertaining the
Grand Lodge, which meets here in may, held
another meeting last Thursday evening.
They report that everything is progressing
satisfactory. An additional committee, con
sisting ot Bros Lafferty, Fellows and Bur
nett, was appointed to make arrangements
with the hotels.
Tne Enquire Rank was conferred upon one
Page Inst Friday evening, using for the first
time the new outfit, that was procured a
short time ago. It is found to be quite an
improvement over the old one that has been
used since the Lodge was instituted.
Major General Carnaban urges that all
divisions ol tbe Uniform Rank, commence
now, to make preparations to attend the en
campment. It is expected that there will be
at least forty divisions in camp
Patriotic Older Sons of America.
Camp 51 was unfortunate in the number of
its attendance at last meeting, there being at
time ot opening of its session only sufficient
to constitute a quorum; however, others
coming in later, quite an interesting meeting
was held, but nothing ot importance further
than routine business was transacted.
Camp 44 will meet in regular session on
next Tueday evening, when fall report ot
the committee on Washington's birthday will
be for consideration. It is impurtant that all
members of both Camps as well as all visit
ing members attend this meeting.
At a called meeting of the State Executive
Committee, held at Columbus 'on tbe 5tb
inst., a'nong other business transacted the
office of State Secretary was declared
vacant, and Bro. E. J. Swerer of Camp
54, Dayton, elected to fill the unexpired
term, all business for Btate camp must here
after be addressed to him.
The Mortuary Benefit Fund of our order is
rapidly gaining in membership and must soon
be recognized as a leading feature of the
oitler. There has not been an assessment
since in February, 1834, (twelve months).
What order can beat it?
It is understood at the present writing that
the order will attend divine worship at the
Congrfgttional Church on February 22, from
latest tidings arrangemmts having been made
to that tffect; h'owever, hear final report ot the
committee on this matter at 44 next meeting.
About two weeks ago a young man named
Charles Patton, formerly of this city, but
lately ot Chicago, came here on a visit and
cver.since he has been on a spree. He has
just barely escaped being whipped by several
partita in town for insulting them, and it was
almost a certainty that he would be
run in before be started bick to Chicago.
In company with several other parties, he
went to Dayton, Friday, and returned last
night. Ou tbe train coming hwne he at
tempted to display some of his "smartness"
before the rest of the passengers at the ex
pense of a Chinaman who was on the train.
Tbe latter would not stand it and the result
was that a fight lollowed. When the train
arrived here the authorities soon heard of the
affair and Patton was arrested by officer
Wilson for disorderly conduct.

A protest to the proposed ancexstion of
school district No. 13 to the city, signed by
all the residents of tbe district outside of the
city limits, was bled with the county auditor
Tuesday last. The county commiisioners
will take action on the case at their meeting
in March, in time to let tbe residents here
have a vote for the election of a member ot
tbe school board, in April. We are glad that
the residents outside the city limits have the
pluck to enter a protest, for should the city
propose to keep the house here only for a
primary department, then there would be
quite a number of children who would have
two or three miles to go to attend school,
that is should the city build a school
house near the rail road crossing,
on Lagonda avenue. Springfield town
ship school board were aware af this be
fore they propo.ed to dissolve this district,
but tbey teemed so anxious to get rid of tbe
district, they did not care what became ot it
after tbey got it off their hands. We say to
those enteriog the protest to kick hard.

eighteen gentlemen contested for the prize
skate. As usual, a vote of the audience was.
taken, which resulted in giving the prize to
Master Burrus Deffenbach. It was conceded
by all that the young man won fairly, but
more or less blame was given tbe managers
of the rink for a.lowiug one so young to par
ticipate. A Iong-looked-for end mucb-talked-of at-

be in attendance on Saturday afternoons,
and the prices will be as on other week days

en cents ; skates, or use of floor, ten cents.
Last evening about half past eight o'clock
a lady named Hex, living in the West End
was walking along Main street in front
of the Bowman Block, when a colored man
jumped in front of her and attempted to
take her pocket book out ot her hand. She
held onto it and began to scream, and the
thief, grabbed a package of coffee, which
she had in her bsnd, and ran off.
About a half hour later a Mrs. Young, who
lives on West Jefferson street, accompanied
by two other ladies, were crossing the alley
on Main, between Factory and Mechanic
streets, when a colored man jumped out and
snatched a hand-sachel which Mrs. -Young
was carrying. The latter held to it as long as
possible but finally tbe handle broke and the
thief secured the sachet. In running he
slipped and fell on the pavement, and
had several men who were near, had any
nerve, they might have captured him.
Among this crowd was a man who bis been
trying to get on tbe police force for some
time past and whose name was sent to coun
cil but not confirmed. Both ot these rob
brries were reported to officer Record, who
thinks he knows who the thief is.
Another case was repsrted from South Cen

abo xtew x ore star claim, an aao. em
inence of having, in 1S70, originated the sys
tem of pictorial illustrations in the daily
journals now so much in rogue among the
otherwise irreproachable and business-liha
papers on that metropolis. Then the Good
sells introduced in The Daily Graphic aha
Leggo process for making illustrationa
quicker, simpler and less expensive than by
engraving. The Leggc process wi first used
In column measure by The Democratic ITewt
and when the lately defunct Truth newspaper
appeared under the management ot The
Dramatic News people, cartoons, comics, lit
tle grotesques, news sketches and cut
line portraits were printed. There waa
a lull in the business of sketches, so far as
most of the daily newspapers were con
cerned; but The Star continued to give pic
torial sletches in its "Man About Town"
columns, by means of the process, which it
had adopted as soon as it became known.
When Joseph Pulitzer came to New York
about a year and a half ago and bought Tea
World, he revived the craze for illustrated
daily journalism by printing a lot of i tllna
portraits with written sketches of the char
acters of the men and women thus shown.
Then The Morning Journal followed suit,
Old Bob Bonar and, later, Tom Nast, the
famous cartoonist, had furnished in the in
terim some sketches for Bennett's Even
ing Telegram. Do Grimm, an importa
tion from Europe, continued the pictures in
Saturday's Telegram and occasionally in
The Herald, but he has not done anything
that has made his name famous like that of
Nast, Wales, Keppler, Gillara, Hamiltca aad
others. James A. Wales, formerly of Frank
Leslie's, and who is now making sketches for
The News and Texas Sittings, and for a tuna
for Puck, is even better than Nast. His car
toon on tbe fifteen puzzle, representing Uncla
Sam looking for a presidential candidate,
four years ago, waa so clever that it made
him a reputation. 'He is corpulent, wears
specs, is an Ohio man, and has a weakness
for dramatic management.
"Do any of the sketch artists combine jour
nalistic writing ability with their pictorial
workP queried the reporter.
"Yes; Gribayedoffe, the Russian, or aa
Capt Aleck William calis him, Grabyour
beadonV He combines reportorial with ar
tistic ability and makes many of "those
clever portrait sketches you see in The
World. He is a partner of Schultas of
Frank Leslie's, and is a strong type of the
yoirag go-ahead Russian; is well educated,
about SO years old, with a colorless, sallow
face and "blonde hair. I think McDougall
takes the lead in the daily newspaper work.
He makes sketches for The World and The
Judge. Young Flanagan is bright and la
rising in the art. He has done some clever
work. I think that all tbe other fellows
have outgrown Ramsden. who is, singularly
enough, too conventional in his work.
Theodore Butler, Crill and Johnson
are finished portrait engravers, and do theae
splendid figures you see in Harper's and The
Century. Then there is Charley- Kendrick,
who formerly had a hand in Chic; he is a fine
sketch artist, who is noted for the accuracy
of his outlines. He is an Englishman, about
SO years old, wears specs like most of kit
craft and" is a decided blonde."
"What salaries are these newspaper sketch
artists paldP asked the reporter.
The big sums reported to be made by
some of them are a fable. Tom Nast, tt a
raid, gets $15,000 a year, aad Frank Leslie
brought Matt Morgan who la a long way
ahead of Nast as an artist over to this coun
try from Lon ion and employed him at a sal
ary of $10,000 a year. Morgan is at Cincta
neti, and still does clever work for the news
papers, as well as painting theatrical cur
tains and scenery and pictures In oil and
water colors. Butltellyouthe best of thaaa
sketch artists do not get more than $50 a
week, and many of them not more than $35
-r $30. Tenniu, ot London Punch, gets
tbout $7,000 a year for furnishing a cartoon
each week, but no one else gate any such
large sum. Joe Keppler, the clever cartoon
ist of Puck, has an interest la that paper,
but I don't think GOlam and Opper get
$1,000 a mimite forthelr very clever sketches
and cartoon. Of the ethers on the funny
papers 'Zim' (Zimmerman) on Puck, Hamil
ton and Dalrymple on The Judge, Nicholli
and a few I cannot remember are good art
ists, but poorly paid."
