the result.
The New Carlisle Building and Loan Asso

The spring elections are approaching, and
the people in each district of this township
should see that directors are elected who will
give their hearty support to the township
high school and the most excellent system of

Taylor. If you do not believe it, take the
trouble to investigate.
Mr. Hughs, the agent for the I., B. k W.
Railroad Company at this place, has a trying
position, but with all that he is courteous and

Saturday and goes back on Monday, and he
thinks his berth will last a month or two yet.
We understand that there is a Democrat in
this precinct who intends to make the race
agaiust Enquire Lowman for justice of the
pence. He, in this particular instance, does
not believe that "to the Victors belong the
Fjioils."
The town is somewhat excited over these
outrages and think that the gang is assisted
by home talent. There Is a slender thread
by which it is hoped that the guilty parties
may yet be apprehended. Nothing will be
lelt undone to this end.

kind and now cold, and always fair in

Xed Tremaine hurried over the beach,
whistling as he went, and iio presently
caught up with his affianced, who, in

oacK on ner blonde Head, was lookin"

smiling in tho face of Lee Stone, the
most incorrigible male flirt at tho
beach.
"Where now, Tremaine?" the latter
called out, as, with a nod, ho pursued

hour later, when Xed and Miss Lovel
met tho pretty light carriage on tho
beach, in which Leo Stone took his
tlai y drive, they received a pleasant
nod from pretty Mollie. who was his
companion, and who looked as though
she was thoroughly enjoying his society.
"She certainly lost no time in follow

half in surprise; "and she has evident
ly found the society of Stone anything
but boriug."
"What a handsome couplo they

colored suddenly; lie didn't quite know
why.
trifle coldly.
"Oh, but so many engagements are
broken in a summer at the seaside, ono
never minus that very much," the lan
guid belle said, indifferently.
That night there was a hop at the ho
tel, and Xed had made up his mind
while dressing to bo a little more at
tentive to Mollie; but, to his surprise,
he didn't lind Mollio Annes shrinking
under her mother's wing, as had been
her custom. A number of her old
friends had arrived while they were at
dinner, and they were about her; be
siiTes, Lee Stone was quite pronounced
in his attentions to her. and while sho
gave him (Xed) a smile from the dis
tance be found it quite dillictilt to get
near her; then a light tap on his arm
informed him that Miss Lovel was ask
ing him why he was so preoccupied,
and, as Mollie and Stone went circling
by, joining the waltzurs, ho followed
them with Miss Lovel.
"A rather pronounced flirtation,"
Lee laughed, later, when ho and Mollio
stood on the hotel terrace watching the
sea and strand and
moonlight on the
ono solitary couple pacing slowly along
besido the waters. Both knew who
they were, for a few moments before
they had seen Xed Tremaine place that
pale-pink scarf about the shoulders of
Miss Laura Lovel as he led her across
the terrace, too much engrossed in his
task, it would seem, to notice Mollie or
her companion.
"Oh, everybody flirts more or less at
a seaside hotel, ono has nothing else to
do, you know," Mollie answered Lee,
with'a light little ripple of laughter,
and ho looked down on tho pretty face
to which the moonlight was so tender,
his voice sinking to almost a whisper as
ho spoke to her.
"It is a cowardly pastime for a man,"
ho said, softly, "and for a woman it is
a cruel one."
Again she laughed, while arranging
the bracelet on her arm. A touch of
mockery was in tho rippling laugh.
"And you is it pleasant to know
that you are cruel or cowardly?" she
questioned. "Ono is tempted to be
come personal when such remarks
come from one who is said to count his
conquests with a cruel pride, and to
whom the world gives no higher aim
than to fascinate, and remain care
less. Am I too plain? Forgive me."
"I forgive you freely as I would for
give you all things. Mis Annes; but
neither you nor tho world fully under
stand me. I may seem a trilfer; but,
were tiie woman I love to love me in

dear."
Mollie had been watching the couple
on the sands, going slowly back and
forth in the moonlight; now she lifted
her sweet young face and looked at him
with a sort of wondering pity.
"Do we all wrong you, then?" she
asked, gently. "Have you- failed in
your wooing? Can you not win where
you love?"
His face Hushed a little at her words,
and she, watching it, was struck by its
strengtli and beauty. How did it
chance that sho had never noticed eith
er before?
"I am not left the chance to woo or
win her," he said, slowly; "she is an
other's promised wife."
"Ah, she said, pityingly; and sho
gave him her hand in a sweet, woman
ly sympathy, never for an instant con
necting his words with herself. Ho
lifted tne small hand revercntlv to his
lips, and, drawing it through Lis arm,
turned toward the beach. As he did so
ho found himself facing Xed Tremaino
and Laura Lovel, who were coming in
from the moonlight, and ho noticed

nook among the rocks that overhung
tho ocean. He had been reading to her

to the world by genius. Her heart had
thrilled as lie read, and new, strange
feelings had stirred it. When he clos
ed the book he had looked up and
found her eyes filled with tears. And

"I have been patient, waiting an op

wrote, "but you will not give me one,
so I write to a,k you if you wish ouren

so."
She trembled a little as sbn rmil nmi
her sweet face chauged color; but she
went to her desk, drew from it everv
letter he had ever sent her, formed
them and his ring in a package and
wrote hiid the following note:

Then, although a choking sensation

MAKING TYPE.
An Hoar Among th Skilled Workman
a-Type-Foundry.
Jn a walk through a type-foundry
yesterday morning by a Times reporter
the following words from Motley's
"Rise of the Dutch Republic" were
quoted by tho founder, who accompa
nied the reporter through his establish
ment, in referring to the art of print
ing: "At the very epoch when tho great
ness of Burgundy was most swiftly
ripening, another weapon was secretly
forging, nioro potent in the great
struggle for freedom than any which
the wit or hand of man has ever de
vised or wielded."
"It may not be generally known,"
said tho type-founder, "that the first
quarto bible printed in America was
tho work of Christopher Saner, of Gcr
mantown, who there in 173o estab
lished a type foundry, but it is to see
how type is made that you come."
"Let us begin witli the metal room."
About tho place where the amalgam
of which type is made were piled hun
dreds of bar of the metal. At the fur
ther end of tho room a master work
man threw into the great kettle cer
tain proportions of copper, antimony,
lead, and tin. This is the amalgam,
the exact proportions of which produce
the useful metal that must bo hard
without being brittle, ductile but tough,
flowing freely and hardening rapidly.
A bar was broken in two. and the
beautiful, sparkling grain of the metal
shown. About the apartment were
casks of glittering antimony, bars of
yellow copper, dull bricks of lead, and
blocks of tin.
As the composition melted the man
at the kettle stirred the molten mass,
and when the proper degree of heat
was reached ladled it out on the molds
that lay on the brick floor at his feet.
Above the metal-room the bars were
fitted for tho printer's use. Before a
machine known as a punch-cutter sat a
man surrounded by a bewildering ar
ray of delicate tools and guages.
"There are very few men of note for
this part of work in the United States,"
whispered the reporter's companion.
"It requires a delicacy of toucii and
perception that is not easily acquired."
Ou the end of a piece of steel the work
man at the punch-cutter was forming a
letter. He worked rapidly yet with
caution, frequently testing his gauges
until tho letter was complete. Then
other letters of the alphabet were
formed finishing the series.
One by one the dies were placed in a
stamping-machine, an oblong piece of
copper put under them, anil then the
great lever was brought down. The
impression was left deep in tho copper.
This oblong bit of copper is termed the
matrix.
From tho punch-cutter tho matrices
wero carried to an adjoining room,
where tho greatest care is exercised in
their fitting up for the mold. The
slightest variation or irregularity was
said to bo fatal to tho appearance of
tho typo cast in them.
Perhaps tho most interesting things
about the foundry are tho tiny casting
machines that pour out an endless
stream of type as long as they work.
"These snug littlo fellows" said tho
type-founder, patting with bis hand
tho odd little mass of machinery before
which ho stood, "can throw out mora
typo in ono day than a man, working
ences; tho lower-case consists of small
letters, double letters, figures, points,
and quadrates Philadelphia Tinits.
A Thousand I'ounils to One.
Xearly every one who has played
.... ,,,ii u .iiusi, nave nan at times a
Yarborough hand that is. a hand in
which there is no card above a nine.
Pembridge says ho has held three of
these hands in the course of two hours;
but this is, of course, altogether unus
ual. The name given to a hand of this
sort is derived from a certain Lord Yar
borough, who u-ed to oiler tho attrac
tive but really very safe wager of
1,000 to 1 that a hand of this sort
would not be deal t. If Lord Yar
borough had not calculated the chances,
(or had them calculated for him,) he
acted with little wisdom in betting at
all on such a matter; but if ho knew
them he acted with little fairness in
offering the odds he did. It will be
found that one hand in about 1,828 is a
Yarborough, so that Lord. YarVorpagu, .

lie laid this wager many thousands of
times. Supposing ho o'ffercd 1,000 to
1 to eaeh member of a whist party,
for 10 deals, ou about 91 or D- nights,
in each of 10 vcars, making in all about
86,5G0 wagers i". c, 20 times 1,828
he would have lost about 20 times, or
20,000. and won about 3G,500, niak
lug a clear profit of about 1G,50D, or
1,G00 per annum, by tiiis seemingly
reckless system of wagering. An in
stance, lastly, is on record of a hand
containing four twos, four threes, four
fours, and one five. Any one holding
such a hand might well believe himself
especially selected for punishment by
the deities or demons, whoever they
may be, who preside over tho fortunes
of whist players. Yet such a hand is
bound to occur from time to time, when
so many play whist. The chance of
holding suelfa hand is, in fact, exactly
the same as the chance of holding all
tho trumps, viz., one in 153,753,389,000.
For there are only four possible ways in
which such a hand can be made up.
It must hold the 12 lowest cards in the
pack, and one five, which may be of
any of the four suits; hence there ara
four hands having no card higher than
a five out of 035,013.559,600. or one
chance of such a hand in 158.753.S89,
000. Yet I have no manner of doubt
so foolish are men in regard to betting
that if a Lord Yarborough of to-day-were
tcoffer 10,000 to 1 (instead of
158.753,3S9.000 to 1) against the
o currence of such a hand he would
find many takers. Richard A. Froctor,
in Longman's Magazine.
The Uiiok-Siore Keeper.
A book-store ought, in a sense, to be
a public library. It ought to be a sort
of intellectual headquarters and start
ing point. It should bestow its bene
fits upon the community in which it
stands, and that community should re
gard it as something worthy of prido
as well as of support. Its proprietor
is, of courie a business man.who wants
to make money. But tho higher his
idea of hi functions, tho more money
he ought to make. More intelligence is
needed in the reading of books than in
cobbling shoes or weighing sugar. He
should be the right-hand man to tho
minister, the editor, the school-teacher,
the lawyer, the physician. He should
take counsel of the educated and well-to-do
classes in tho community; and
should put on his shelves tho books
tiiey want, and should welcomo them
to his place of business. He is himself
a teacher and preacher, whose moral
and intellectual influence makes his
business an ethical as well as a com
mercial one. He has a "high calling"
and ought to take a becoming prido
in it. If he sells paper-haugings. sta
tionery, bronzes and knick-knacks ha
should remember that these, however
remunerative, aro but side-shows. If
he covers his windows with flash, il
lustrated journals or staring litho
graphs he shows that he has no confi
dence in the intellectual part of tho
town and no power to make himself
attractive to it. Is it all a mere mat
ter of profit? By no means; but if it
were moro money as well as more rep
utation is to "be got by working
for the best and wisest and well-to-do
classes than for tho Saturday night pur
chasers of the story papers.
In a recent "cano rush" at Cornell
between the sophomore and freshman
classes, thrco students wero so badly
injured that they were carried home in
carriages. It is said that the faculty
of the University will prohibit further
indulgence in the amusement, which is
regarded as both brutal and danger
ous. "Rushing" is already under tho
ban of many of tho best American
colleges.
