Special to the Indianapolis Journal. WABASH, Ind., June 13. The Wabash county grand jury adjourned yesterday after a session of six weeks, most of which time was consumed in the Investigation of the official acts of the Wabash county Board of Commissioners. Serious charges had been made against the members of the board by a local newspaper, and Judge Shivcly ordered a special Investigation. The grand Jury to-day filed its repot, which is most sensational, and will result in imme diate and vigorous criminal prosecution of the three commissioners, Judson Lukens, of Roann; James Starbuck, of Lagro, and E. P. . Failor, of Lafontalnc. The report declares there appears to be amazing Ignorance of official duty and dis regard of the public Interest in refusing to advertise such business as the law directs, in not keeping record of the "publje con tracts, in borrowing or allowing to be bor rowed large sum3 of money without mak ing record of same, In making additional allowances on contracts, in allowing ac counts filed against the county without verification by claimant, In making contracts with one another to perform other than specific work. In making allowances to themselves for work which the law forbids doing, in conducting the public business with a reckless diregard of business principles and In surrounding the public business with an air of secrecy arousing suspicion." The report also charges that "often by telegrams meetings have been arranged be tween commissioners and a certain bridge company's agent, and at his exensr t..vj commissioners have been driven about the county. At prices suspiciously large con tracts have been let out of session for bridges for which there had never been pe titions, notice or requests, and at places where none save this bridge man and his three dupes considered it a work of neces sity. From this agent presents have been received by the commissioners or those with whom they are directly connected, of money and other valuables. A thorough overhaul ing of the public records is recommended by the Incoming board." Dl'EL IX 3IOXROR COUXTV. Tito Tonus Men Settle n Controversy with Revolvers. Special to the Indianapolis Journal.

Suicide Overman Murdered and Robbed n Man of f.JO.tMMJ. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. KOKOMO, Ind.. June 13. Last winter an old resident of Windfall, named Overman, committed suicide under peculiar circum stances. This week, in going through Mr. Overman's papers, to make a real-estate conveyance, a letter was found, written by Overman a few days before he ended his life which conveyed the Information that more than twenty years aero Overman fell In with a stranger, supposed to be a wealthy Englishman on his way to Colo rado to purchase a cattle ranch. The strang er carried in his valise 130,000 of English bank notes and coin. The temptation to se cure this vast sum of money overcame Overman and he lured the man to a se cluded spot and murdered him. The body was secreted in a swamp in Tipton county and has never been found. After getting possession of the money. Overman says in his letter, he was afraid to spend any of it, fearing detection. He was also afraid to exchange it for American money for the same reason and without disposing of a shilling of the cash secreted it about the premises. Years wore on and th? crime preyed heav ily on Overman's mind. He avoided meet ing his neighbors, leading, as much as possible, a hermit's life. Finally he b3 came desperate and determined to end the torment by self-destruction. This he did some months ago. his dead body being found in A field with a bullet in the brain. .The letter did not give any explanation of the whereabouts of the body of the mur dered man, the date of the murder, or the name of the unfortunate man. Neither did it Indicate where the hidden $30,000 could be found. It is thought the wealth is stored away somewhere in the house or buried in the yard. The relatives are on a lively hunt for the hidden treasure but have not succeeded in finding it. INDIANA L'XIVERSITY. Lmv Class Grnrtnntcd nnd Admitted to the liar. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. BLOOMIXGTOX. Ind.. June 13.-The com mencement exercises of the Law School were held at the old college chapel last night, eighteen future members of the bar receiving their sheepskins. The commence ment address was delivered by the Hon. R. D. Richardson, of Evansville, an alumnus of Indiana University. It was an able effort, dealing first with the duties and obligations of a lawyer's career and Its high functions, and afterward with the standards of legal" education to-day. Judge Richardson is a firm believer in higher education as a prepa ration for a legal career. Without a strong foundation in the liberal arts a young man's chance of success at the bar are very slim indeed to-day. The shysters and pettifog gers are no more able to earn a living by fleecing the public. Better to begin at twenty-seven or twenty-eight years of age with a liberal education than earlier with out solid preparation.

The very soil of these hillsides is fragrant with the du3t of sweet things grown upon them scented grass, sweet clover rioting on the cindertcds along the rallroadsv, sweet fern and birberry, black birch and laurus benzoin, or spice bush, and the wild cherry, which gives the woods that haunting fruity fragrance, infatuating the sense in early autumn and late spring, an odor of remembrance which carries the heart away with longing after all sweet and departed things. What is it? A trace of hydrocyanic acid and sweet varnish on bark and leaves. Yet one had rather catch the tantalizing wafts of it than to hear much music. What are we made of, that scent and sound and air can play upon U3 as to draw the soul from the body with intensest longing? That wild cherry odor is steeped in the sweetness of all seasons bloomed and faded the aroma of that viewless draught in which we pledge the dead. Fill your house with sweet things for the children to remember after you are gone. An odor will reach them, remind them of home when language is worthless. Never mind a poor home if it is airy and clean and perfumy with wild natural things. I know a house where the closets smell of vernal grass and sweet clover gathered years gone by, and the balsamic scent cf vhite sage, plucked in California more than thirteen years ago, has hardly left its shelf. These things are for the neaith of our bodies ana atfections. " Sweet scents are antiseptic, nervine, stim ulant, sedative indeed, you may get the whole round of medication out of them. The greater part of what we call the sweet est flowers have the hydrocyanic base un derneath their honeyed scent. Lilacs, arbu tus, orange blossoms, violets and all the fruit blossoms are tinctured with its ether apple bloom most delicately of all. Certain white pinks have a dash of it, but the car nation and gtlliflower tribe are the exquis ites of flowers, as far as scent is concerned, and purely stimulant vivifying. Their breath exhales ozone, and so does rosemary, plant of the sea, which I long to see ac climated here with Its mates, lavender and wallflowers. You find hedges of lavender in California, home of sweet aromatics, but I hunted the flower markets of New York this year in vain for a single plant, and found but two of rosemary, with a sorry looking array of forced wallflowers. So we must perforce make the most of our own scented plants, choice enough In themselves but lacking association. Our finest native shrubs of the laurel family which scent tho borders of the lawn with Italian rich ness smell to us only of root beer and the barber's shop. Were sassafras a tropTc plant we would esteem it like benzoin and sandalwood, and find snake root delightful as vertivert frangipannl. It is cruel to seo tho destruction of the wild cherry trees for short riddance of cankerworm nests, for few trees have finer qualities. The wood wrought into cabinetwork is hardly lees fragrant than the violetwood of Aus tralia, and the bureaus and closets panel ed with it in old French work keep their scent though made in the reign of the Grand Monrrque. Elegant French Women were very . fond of tho coffers and cabinets of this wood, hardly second to mahogany in lustre and richness. The trees might be preserved and the worms killed by discreet manage ment if all the useless boys In the country were set to burn out the canker nests wherever seen. If Arbor day were given up to this good work with battalions of boys carrying kerosene torches it would be put to better use than it is now. The ob servance mostly consists in setting out a dozen spindling trees left to die of drought before the summer is over and the after noon is given up to rupturing blood ves sels and getting up intestinal hemorrhages by bicycle racing. Boys would find more sport burning out worms' nest3 if they were shown how, and all the tfld campaign torches would be put to reasonable use the boys likewise. It is not beyond wom en's work either. I was up before sunrise thl3 morning burning out the only two rests this year out of forty infested trees about the grounds three years ago. Early and late those worms were fought with the torch of war, an old Droom and a pail of kerosene. A few branches were killed, but the worms died too. What if the pests do start in the wild cherry thickets must we lose one of the choicest orna mental and useful trees of the country when each neighborhood has idle boys enough to sweep the woods of the worms without chopping down the coppices? THE KIND TO GATHER. Even at the North we may keep a calen dar of fresh incense each month from our own fields and woods. The year of per fume begins when the prunings and billets of the cherry trees are burnt on the hearth, In March evenings, shedding de lectable aroma through the house. In April gather witch hazel twigs and buds and balm of Gilead buds for their wild, woodsy odor, grateful as that of wild olive. These things fresh are very different from the decoctions of the apothecary," an d they blend with other aromatics in maktng strange, pleasant comcications. aiay wakes the maidenly odcr of the vernal grass, which 19 cut in bunches thick as the wrist to dry in closets, as the English keep their woodroffe and tussilago of sim ilar fragrance. These bunches outlast lav ender, and are exquisite for scenting linen. June is the month for beginning potpourri and filling rose Jars, which may be filled with wild roses, varieties of which have the scent of the tree rosa damascena. from which attar is made, if you are fortunate enough to find them. An old English Flora says .the water from the common dog rose Is by many considered more fragrant than when di.-tilled from any of the garden roses. The evergreen single white rose yields the fine-scented attar from the coast of Darbary and Egypt; the double rose loses its yield of oil, though some zoses which have scentless attar make fragrant rose water rasa centifolia or hundred leafed rose chief among them. Fo" roe Jars pure and simple admit no other flower, and the choicest for enduring odor Is the common province or cabbage rose almost unknown in our gardens filled with purplish hybrids. Its peta.s keep their fragrance mor than a year in a close en velope. Fragrant tearoses deserve to be kept by themselves; a Jar of bonsiline petals 13 a thing to make one dream. Gather all roses as soon after opening as possible, in the morning of a dry day. as soon as the dew is off, though one would not willingly forego the example of English girls Jn nov- fl3 who go out afternoons on the terrace to gather the rose leaves that have fallen on the grass. Rose leaves are rose leaves, provided they are free from rain or de.v. They should be strewn thinly on piper or cheese cloth, with half an hour in the sun and finish drying in the shade, in an airy place, till noon. Put them quickly away in bulk. A glass candy jar will be found the best thing to store them in. Do not pack them, but shake tnem in lightly, giv ing the Jar a rap to settle them, and put thin cotton wadding under the tin cap. Salt Is added to rose petals in many recipes for rose Jars, but this Is a mistake. Abroad rose leaves are pickled for making com mercial rose water, being first wilted In the sun and packed in casks In alternate lay ers of petals and fine salt, to be distilled any time wanted. The salt is not s much to preserve the leaves as to absorb their remaining moisture, which it gives up in distillation. From these pickled roses we get the "pure imported rosewater" soil, the weak, brackish stuff, which is no more like freshly distilled roses than vln ordi naire is like violet Burgundy. Roses keep best without any addition. If dry. HOW TO SCENT LACES. To scent laces or silk adorably, line a flrawer with thick white paper, strew fresh gathered peta's thickly over it and lay the lace or silk open over them, adding, another layer cf leaves, other lac2s and fin ishing with a cover of tissue paper. Close the drawer and leave it twenty-four hours' or longer, examining to see that no damp appears. This is the court practice for per fuming queen's laces and lawns. July is the month or beginning potpourri, which is another thing from rilling rose Jars. If you want something better than the mince meat and fruit cake effect of the cjmmon potpourri use three times the quantity of flowers and one-third the spices called for in recipes. For a fine pot pourri leave all spice? out save crushed cloves and U32 a cup of ground orange peel, dried and pounded, the same of lomcn peel and an ounce of gum benzoin In - the Jar as a foundation. To this add a pound or two of dry lavender flowers, all the green leaves of lemon verbena you can have, a ;uarter-3f a pound of orris ta .coarse pow der, all the gilliflower. carnations and pinks possible, or in want of these two ounces of crushed cloves. Let these ue close covered for a week, opening the jar and giving the contents a stir when it is desired to scent the room. A three-gallon Jar Is a desirable size for filling. The fool ish little rose Jars sold, holding less tan a pint, are made for rose past or other heavily scented Oriental confections in mass, not for dry leaves. In August gather sweet clover and balsam flr tips. The whole plant of sweet clover is fragrant, the dead stalks In winter scenting yards around in the snow. Pas of It hung in closets last sweot for a year, and cush ions of it in a room are very pleasant. The Jersey road sides abound with this delight ful, plant, which should be put to use, and would be in any country but our own un thrifty one. In August and September all the garden herbs are fit for cutting, sweet basil and delicate woodmlnts. not pepper mint, but lemonseented and camphory things, wh.'ch seem to like to lie In one's hand. and have their mild odor co.ixed out cf them. October sees the wild immortelle perfect, its tiny white roses of sweet, comforting smell, which the dry blossoms keen for sea sons. Like rosemary, its ordor Is one of suggestion and remembrance, and it has all the good qualities which commonly go with grateful scent, for not content with beauty of color and perfume, cur best flow ers pride themselves on their medical prop erties, like beauties of the town, turned sick nurses. November and December have stores of bayberry and cedar. Juniper and other ever green berries one likes to keep to throw a few on the winter lire and rill the room with household Incense. The berried bowa smell fresh and spicy in the hall, and a plant in a tub is a beautiful decoration at Christmas time, takine it up carefully with plenty of Its own soil the summer before, and shading and giving it plenty of water. If it were a foreign plant, with Its rich leaves and clusters of blue jjray berries, we would make much of It. How stupidly use dulls us to the nearest beauty! FIIt-FILLED PILLOWS. Everybody likes the pillows of balsam flr tips, but It may be remembered that these are better fresh every year, though they retain scent longer. Pillows of rose leaves are pleasant in idea long after the smell Is out of them, and are sleep producing when fresh. Iri Tunis and Egypt they used to fill silken mattresses with rose leaves for luxurious, black-bea reded, scimetar noSed rulers, and in Persia even now the bath is strewn with rose leaves, insidiously soothing. Homelier, yet as grateful a lux ury, is the pillow of lemon balm, which displaced and derided plant is really one of the strongest nervines, whether sipned in tea or laid under a restless liead. A hop pillow is nothing beside .a balm pillow, whose scent puts babies to sleep and wiles away headaches. Lemon jreranium and verbena leaves may go toward filling this pillow, for the lemon scent is always re freshing. And let those who cannot find this Frenchy herb In reach try a lavender pillow for those who have sleepless nights, and float away to rest, thanking the kindly herb. A cushion of lemon leaves and fresh hops is very pleasant and soporific, less fit for any but the sick room. ' So much is to be desired in sachet powders that delicate gifts may put themselves to use in improving them. Every man who keeps a drug store thinks he can Invent. perfumes and scent powders, whereas it re quires a sense of smell exceptional as that of a tea taster, who judges by the odor as well as the flavor of teas. And this scent must be gradually, nicely trained, to dis cover the composition of perfumes a syn thetic sense it may be called. Most of the new perfumes are Jasmine oil or hydrocyan ic acid the cherry blossom and the crab apple scents dealing in the latter, while the fancy named bottles yield a cloying breath between jasmine and banana odor. Even the old standard favorites lose identity. when they lose their first makers. When a man dies his perfumes die with him, for the formulas may remain, but not the care and the instinct which compounded them. Women of taste should excel in making per fumes, the only trouble being dittlculty of fersuadlng druggists to sell really choice ngredients. The trash what is offered In the . name of rose water, with the strength lost by keeping, or manufactured rosewater, is made by pouring attar on powdered magnesia and filtering distilled water through it, or the water from pickled roses- of the Levant. The filtered rose water may be nice they use about seven drops of attar for making a pint and for bathing face and eyes it is better than the distilled, because less astringent. But it has not the richness of the true rosewater, triply stilled from fresh roses, the heavy, oily water, with a honey-colored tinge, ahi a honeyed tincture in its sweetness, often an aromatic spirit blending in its soft breath. The choicest gift I over had. to my taste, was several bottles of home rose water, sent by a Maryland lady, who dis tilled it from her own fields of roses, after a recipe used in the family for generations. I never had the least good of it, as it was left with a friend for safe keeping, and the servant girl drank it up! But the per fume of that right royal present taught me what rosewater really is, and left me skeptical of most that goes bv the name since. SHIRLEY DARE. TELEGRAPHIC HREVITIES.

He then beat out the brains of his own children, a little girl, aged about five, ani a boy, about nine years of age, with a hatchet, after which he blew out 1.1s own brain? with a revolver. Williams lost his first-wife last September, and on May l: was married to Mrs. Anna Kennedy, form erly a Miss Dixon, who lived near by, and who had assisted in his housework for some, time past. Their married life was very un happy, and after about four weeks of tur moil the woman left him and went to liv with a man named A Swnnson, a neighbor.
