The Judge failed to appear at the anpointed time, however, and the Attorney-general waited until the toval friht ci rived." but no Judge put in an appearance. After filing the application for tho restraining order with the county clerk, Ketham left for Hammond with a disgusted look on h3 face. He had written the Judge savetal days before to meet him, and Kctsham could not see why he had failed to come. There remained nothing to do but to hunt up Glilet. so Ketcham took the local freight at noon for Hammond.

Ind.. July 21-For some time !t has been supposed that an organ ized gang of thieves was operating in this town and vicinity, and the supposition be came a fact about a week ago, when one of the gang weakened and Informed Marshal John Gooding that an attempt would be made that night to rob Heuke's clothing store, Gooding secured a posse and laid in wait for them, but they failed to show upj Gooding then learned that an attempt would be made last night to rob the residence of Lenox Gooding south of town. Air. Gooding and his family have for a long time been in the habit of coming to town very early on Saturday morning, and It is supposed that he generally keeps quite a sum of money around the house. This morning just after they started to town Jasper Rlgsby and Terry Gibson broke into the house and began appropriating all the valuables they could find. Marshal Good ing and his deputy, who were secreted near by, entered and captured them in the act. The prisoners were brought to town and taken to Anderson to Jail. Rlgsby is only out of the penitentiary on good behavior, having been implicated in holding up and robbing a man here about three years ago. for which his "pal," Charles Rains, went to the penitentiary. Gibson also has a very unsavory reputation, although he has never been Implicated in anything of this kind before. There are several others in the gang, and other arrests will follow.

The Most Serious Drawback Is the Slowness of Getting; Alone. Literary Digest. A Journey to Europe Is such an every day affair that people who wish to be looked upon as traveled now turn their attention in other directions. The Ost Aslatische Lloyd, Shanghai, points out that China is a comparatively new field to the excursionist, and thinks the Wes tern public will be glad to be informed of the mode of -travel and its cost In the Flowery Kingdom. The most serious drawback to a trip through China appears to be the slowness of travel. The Lloyd says: "There are few straight roads in China. The actual distance between two commer cial centers may be comparatively short, but the roads are so tortuous that travel ing requires much time. Thus the dis tance between Yunan-foo. the capital of the province of Yunan. and the "ianjr-tse port of Hakow is, on an average, covered in eighty days. The distance is. as the crow Hies. Si miles, but the traveler goes twice as much. The distance traveled dally varies, of course, with the character of the country. In southern Yunan. where horses and sedan chairs are available, twenty to twenty-five miles per day may be accomplished. A sedan chair with three carriers tone as relief) costs ll a day. 'Coolies, carrying seventy to eighty pounds, receive 35 to 40 cents a day. A bag gage horse costs 25 to SO cents a day, and carries twice as much as a coolie- but its owner must be paid separately for leading it. Bullocks carry about 150 pounds, but only advance at the rate of eignt to twelve miles a day. In Shan-sl and Shen-si two wheeled carts are used, also sedan chairs, carried between two mules. Baggage and merchandise are transported on camels, which carry 300 pounds each at a cost of la to l3i cents a day. In the Honan prov ince wheelbarrows are used, small ones at 20 to 25 cents a day; large ones, pushed by two men. twice that sum. In traveling on water the cost is 12 to 15 cents for a dis tance of 100 11 (about thirty miles) for each person. Meat cost on an averajre 2' cents. "With regard to security, it must be ad mitted that traveling U much less danger ous in China than may be supposed. The main roads are generally safe; attacks from robbers are much more likely to hap pen on less frequented byways. In dis tricts where the population Is not very nu merous guards are stationed along the road to protect the caravans. This is especially the case on highways used for the mail. It Is. however, advisable to travel armed, especially If one carries articles of value ' Lenz. the American bicyclist passed safe ly through China. It was in passing through the country of the Kurds that he met his fate KEEPING UP THE BOLT MATTHEWS SENATORIAL FIGHT SPLITS A JOINT CONVENTION. Doth Factions Nominate at Seotts bursSpeech from Lebanon Stand pipe, 120 Feet High. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. SCOTTfiBURG, Ind., July 25.-The Demo crats of the Joint senatorial district, com posed of Clark, Jennlng3 and Scott coun ties, held a delegate convention here this afternoon to nominate a candidate for State Senator and split wide open. Joseph H. Shea, of Scott county, and George H. Voight, of Clark county, were aspirants. Shea had entered the race some months ago when he thought no one would oppose him, but not long ago Clark county sprung Voight. This led to a bitter fight and a se rious split in the party. The friends of Shea had prepared themselves for the oc casion by having the "machine" on their side, and when the convention was called to order this afternoon by Mark Storen, chair man of the Democratic central committee of Scott county, the machine was set grind ing by Seba Barnes, of Jennings county, moving that the Chair appoint a committee of one from each county as a committee on credentials. This the Chair proceeded to do, refusing the chairman of the Clark county delegation the privilege of naming the mem ber for his county. The committee ap pointed consisted entirely of men favora ble to the nomination of Shea. Clark coun ty delegates had been selected some months before on an apportionment of one delegate for each 200 Democratic votes. When the convention was called the apportionment was based on one delegate for each 150 votes. This entitled Clark county to seven more delegates than had been selected by the township and precinct mass conven tions, and to supply the additional dele gates the chairman of the county central committee of that county selected the ad ditional delegates. The original delegation denied the right of the chairman and named contesting delegates. Both sides claimed seats in the convention. The credentials committee made a report seating the dele gates chosen by the county chairman, and when the report -was adopted the majority of the regularly chosen delegates from Clark county bolted, and before the other side had completed a permanent organiza tion had organized a convention of their own In one end of the court room by select ing s. B. Blffendaffer as chairman and D. C. Payton as secretary, and proceeded in the regular way to hold a senatorial con vention. George W. Baxter placed Mr. Voight in nomination for State Senator and the solid vote of Clark county, that be ing twenty-seven and a majority over all, was cast for Jilm. Jennings and Scott coun ties were called, but paid no attention. Mr. Voight was declared the nominee and the convention adjourned Just as the other side had completed a permanent organization by the selection of Thomas B. Rader. of Clark county, chairman and James Reeney, of Jennings county, secretary. James K. Marsh, on behalf of Clark county, placed Joseph H. Shea in nomination. The roll of Clark county was called and the secretary announced that thirteen had voted for Shea and that fourteen had refused to vote. Jen nings cast eight for Shea and one refused to vote. Scott cast her seven votes for Shea, making a total of 28, and he was de clared the nominee. The Voight factions claim that theirs was 111 make a fleht to have his name placed on the ticket for Joint Senator for the district. The bitter feeling created between the two factions indicates a victory for the Repub lican nominee next November. It Was sTMatthevfn Fight. Special te the Indianapolis Journal. JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind.. July 25. The ambition of Governor Matthews to succeed Senator Voorhees ' caused a bolt In the Scottsburg convention to-day and the nom ination of two men for joint Senator. On the way home from Scottsburg the bitter ness between the two factions in the Clark county delegation came near resulting In numerous fights, and it was necessary to sepafate them into different coaches to prevent the outbreaks. J. H. Shea was given to understand until two or three days ago that he would be nominated by ac clamation, but G. H. Voight, who is a per sonal friend of Governor Matthews, was brought out. Many who were present state that one delegate was offered $50 to yoie for Voight, but re fused. HIGHLY NOVEL SPEECH. Prof. Keller Spoke from the Top of Lebanon Standplpe. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. LEBANON, Ind., July 25.-The most ele vated and highly amusing political address ever made in this city was made at 5:30 o'clock this afternoon by Prof. James Kel ley, colored. He spoke from the top of the stand-pipe, 120 feet from the ground. The ascension was made by way of a ladder connected with the pipe on the outside. Prof. Kelley carried on his head a three gallon bucket filled with water, and to the side of the vessel the stars and stripes were nailed. When at the top. In a most graceful manner and with distinct articti lation and easy gesticulation with both hands, he made a speech favoring McKln ley and sound money and predicted the election of the Republican chief by a large majority. The address of five minutes was loudly cheered from the audience of a thousand people that filled the streets for several blocks away. Turning about In his place he gracefully acknowledged the ap plause by bowing his head and tipping the bucket sufficiently to pour from it some of the water It contained. Then he made the descent as gracefully and successfully. The Pops Failed to 3Ieet. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. MARION, Ind.. July 25. Thls was the day designated by the Pops of Grant county for the selection of delegates to their congressional and State conventions'. The convention was to have been held at the courthouse at half past 1 this after noon. Two o'clock came, and a vigilant canvass of the courthouse failed to reveal anything Fopullstlc in aspect. A half hour later a newspaper representative In mak ing the rounds of the courthouse learned that two or three men had been seen going up into the courthouse loft. Investigation up there disclosed the presence of John V. Kelley, secretary of the county committee, and three of the faithful. Mr. Kelley was Immersed In the perusal of a book that ap-, peared to contain the records of previous meetings, while hl3 compatriots were milk ing their whiskers and speculating as to what the St. Louis convention would do. A half hour later another Pop had come In, but it was evident that the attendance v ould not be further swelled, and Secretary Kelley declared the meeting adjourned. Guess we'd better locked the door," said he. "and made you think that we were holding a secret meeting." Joint Senator Nominated. Special to the Indianapolis Journal. MUNCIE, Ind..

In most, if not all schools, the oral sys tem of spelling has been abandoned, and It Is said that much less time than formerly is given to reading aloud, the time being taken up with recitations. This is unfor tunate for the pronunciation of the pupils. and it explains why persons fairly well educated in other particulars are guilty of so many errors In pronouncing words. It would be hard to exaggerate the im portance of spelling, since the ability to spell well is made. the supreme test of in telligence and even of respectability. This is sometimes tmjust. because there are per sons who . find It impossible to learn to spell who can master the most difficult mathematical proposition more easily than they can fix in their. minds the distinction In the spelling ofV'sIege" and "seize." or "gauge" and "assuage" or "aristocracy" and "hypocrisy" and the like. There is no analogy to cuide us In snellinsr. but It is a .matter of memory pure and simple, as in the case of the GermanAgenders. There are rules of spelling, bur the exceptions are so many that the rules are of little value. The matter of mejnory has for Its first condition attention and then repetition. It Is useless to hope that one will learn to spell from mere reading. The reader pays almost no attention to the letters of the words which he , reads certainly , not enough to permanent'y fix the arrange ment In his mind. Attention and repeti tion, and again repetition, is the only rule under which anybody can learn to spell. The theory of, learning by writing the lessons Is sound, provided the words are written often enough. In this only the sight centers are employed and the opera tion Is direct and not secondary, as when the hearing Is engaged. The danger is, however, that there will not be sufficient repetition in the mechanical operation. The time devoted each day to spelling Is mostly taken up by the mechanical pro Cess of writing the words. A word can be spelled orally three or four times while it Is being written once. It is probable that the memory will be as deeply impressed by three or four spellings under the oral system as by one spelling6 under the writ ten method. In addition to the loss of opportunity to learn how to pronounce words through the system of copying the spelling lesson from the blackboard, there is the loss of the stimulus of competition. "Spellinc down" is one form of competition that should not be abandoned in" the general revolt against competitive examinations. It makes atten tion imperative and it is an excitement that does not fire the young ambltici; to a hurtful degree. Each child has its atten tion drawn to every word spelled by each member of the class. Instead of having It limited to the few words to bevcopled from the blackboard under the modern plan. Spelling is so important that we cannot afford to neglect anything that will Induce pupils to .master it. It was the. super lative merit of the old district school that though it did not have much to do with education as a science.

A recent definition of the term by a well-known clubwoman Is compact enough to be memorized, and too good not to re passed on: ' Club loyalcy," Fhe says, "sig nifies a certain giving up of inclination in other directions if the duties of the club require it. It signifies attendance upon club meeting, attendance which shall Lo prompt and regular, so that there may not be a mere beggarly quorum, a mere contingent of those who rell&lously believe in stand ing for what and for all their names are worth, but that there Fhall be a good rep resentation of the general force upon every working as well as upon eery social occa sion. Club loyalty means the prompt pay ment of club dues, the giving of club gifts and honors ungrudgingly, and the accept ance of them sweetly, making a return when expedient and possible. And. lastly, club loyally means the bestowrj of person al Influence in favor of the club whenever and wherever it can do tne most good," EXCESSES BY TROOPS HOMES OF CHRISTIANS PILLAGED BY BRITAL TURKISH SOLDIERS.

July 25.-The House of As sembly has unanimously adopted the re port of the select committee on the sub ject of the Jameson raid on Johannesburg. The report finds that Mr. Cecil Rhodes, who at the time was Premier of Cape Col ony, was ' fully acquainted with the preparations for the raid, and Mr. Alfred Belt, a director of the Brltrsh South Africa Company, Dr. .Jameson and Dr. Ruther ford Harris, also a director of the British South Africa Company, were active pro moters of the raid. The report further de clares that there Is no evidence that Mr. Rhodes intended that the Pitsanl force should Invade the Transvaal uninvited, but that at the same time there was an ab sence of any peremptory command from Mr. Rhodes forbidding the raid. Rhodes and Harris, it is alleged, drafted a tele gram containing such prohibitory com mand, but tho message was never dis patched. With thej?e facts In view the re port says the committee cannot acquit Mr. Rhodes of responsibility. The report further alleged that all the funds for the raid were contributed by the British South Africa Company and with the knowledge of the London office, the money being afterwards refunded by Mr. Rhodes.

It is a charming thing, no doubt (writes our author, himself a violinist of high re pute), to posses a Nicolo Amati. a Stradi vari, or a Guarnerl vloiin in good condi tionthat is. which has not been accldently injured or purposely tampered with. Many old Cremona violins have been scraped or patched, or have had certain Internal ad ditions made to them with the . view of making them, as it was imagined, more lltted to the strain of modern ltch. Such instruments are more or less destroyed. .The collection of Cremona Instruments made by the lat Joseph Jillott, of .Birm ingham, realized on sae $21,?75; It had no doubt cost him twice as much. Although nothing can equal the soft, luscious tone of a well-preserved Stradi vari, a violin must be a poor one that w ill r.ot In the hands of a competent utayer -rake its due effect in a large concert room, even though not so pleasant as a Cremona in the drawing room. For $200 or thereabouts an artist can have an instru ment that will enable him to command, a living. One day the use of a fine Stradi vari violin was offered Charles l)anc!a for one of his concerts; he tried it for ten days, but preferred to play upon his own instrument, which was not worth one-tenth of the money the other had cost. .Man cotel. of London, has made a violin that, prejudice apart, coula not be distinguished from the finest Cremona. Our author re members an instrument made by Withers, of London, which "in a concert room" could not be distlnfiuishcd from the Ixst Cremona Instruments. It was sold for $3u0 to an amateur. The affection for old Cremona Instru ments is no modern fancy. The Stradivari presented to our author at sixteen years of ape by his father had been priced in ;S24 at 100 guineas. It is only during the last forty years or so tnat Cremona Instru ments have sold freely above that price. One cf the highest prices realized since was $4.00. paid In lS'.S for the Stradivari that belonged to the o.d maker. John Belts, of London. He bought it over his shop counter some seventy years before for a soverolRn. In the snme year n Stradivari sold at auction in Paris for $4.42". It hun happened that violins of great historical value have disappeared, apparently for ever, as the famous Elector-Stainer instru ments have done. These were the violins made by Stalncr after he had entered on a monastic life, and preserted to each of the Electors. A very large amount of money, estimated at one million sterling, la annually circu lated In buying and selling "Cremona" vio lins. The private owner is no match for the dealers, and ought never let a valuable Instrument go out of his own possession on any pretext whatever, short of absolute and final sale. Especially must he beware of making a sale cyen for cash with the reservation of "money to be returned" on whatever pretext.- "There Is only one way to get the true value of an old Cremona violin, namely, to offer It (with a reserved price) at a public auction. This was the plan adopted by the late Charles Rcade. the writer, who had some experience In these matters and occasionally dealt in valuable Instruments." It must be under stood that the high prices paid for the Cre mona violins are not due to their absolute super'ority as musical Instruments which does not strictly exist. Out author insists that he has had in his own hands violins by Sebastian Kloz. Hunger. Simon. Lujot and others which were quite equal to any by Amati. Stradivari and Guirneri the three Cremona makers. But more conclu sive testimony Is perhaps borne by a trial of Instruments lefore the Academical Com mission at Paris, the vlo'ins being played by the then famous Boucher, when an in strument by Chanut was unanimously ad Judged finer than the "Strad" with which it was compared. It has been said that the old Cremona varnish is a lost art. but this Is pronounced nonsense. With regard to labels one sim ple experiment is Instructive. A good or chestral violin of modern make had the label of the maker on It when purshased. After twenty-four years' constant work this label had become perfectly invisible; it was covered with black dust and rosin, and no amount of rubbing with grease, spirit, soap and water, etc., would restore it. During this treatment it was destroyed. If this be the effect of only twenty-four years use. what are we to say of those easily read labels purporting to have been over 200 years In a violin? The case for Cremona is summed up by our author with the statement that the three great makers, with Ruggert and .Lorenzo Guadagninl, turned out some violins and basses of th verv finest description Imaginable. These violins, like those of Sebastian Kloz and Stainer, are becoming rarer as well as dearer every day. In the London Loan belonging to Vlliaume. "This Villaume- Stradivarius is worth, ns times go." wrote Charles Iteade, 3.00"X The same instrument recently changed hands at JIO.OOO. showing that it had trebled in value during the intervening? quarter of a cen tury. It is supposed to be just as it was turned out by the mker, having been very little played upon and never opened. Some Amati and . Guarnerl violins are a little nasal, a fault incapable of being rem- idied. Stradivari made a greater number than either of the others, but they are not all equally good, and his violins have been the most copied. TWENTY-FOUR-HOUR RECORD.

HE CLEARED HIS CLIENT. The Broker Quoted a. Lavr Which Goes" Down 'South. Jacksonville Citizen. There are four bosom companions In Jacksonville the broker, the dentist, the undertaker and the capitalist. Whre you see one of them you will find all the reFt taking a drink. The undertaker and the capitalist admire the dentist and the broker because they can tell such wonderfully clever stories. The broker and the dentist revere and love the undertaker and the capitalist because they are such wonder fully good listeners. This happy, admiring quartet form an ideal round-table, and around this table the two li.'te'ncrs often hf-ar gfod storUs by the dentist and the broker. The dentist Is an Imaginative sort of a story-teller, who manufactures finales to fit Incidents. The broker Is a great reader, a realist and a philosopher. One night the broker to'.d of a lawsuit In Alabama. A cracker from the mountains was on trial for shooting and wounding a "nigger." He was arretted, and. having, no money tho jtulg? appointed the broker to defend hltn. Tho broker was not a lawyer in the le?al sense of the word, but the judge, who was an old college mate of his. said he was an Idiot because he wasn't one. In other words, that he was a lawyer by instinct. The broker cross-questioned the witness briefly, sending in now and then a sarcastic and discomfiting trajec tory. When bfe came to make a speech, he said: 4 Gentlemen of the jury. I have taken great pains to show you that my client was a respectable citizen. Ten witnesses have assorted on oath, mbid you that he stands hlirh in his community." The defendant was six feet three inches tall, and the jurv smiled. "He stood high in his community, and that is Fufficifnt. Now for the law. We find In the thirtieth versr- of the sixteenth chanter of Chltty on Pleadings chltty. gentlemen, was one of the bravest generals of the confederate army this weu-estao fished principle of law." Here the broker snaps hi eyes together and adjusts his glasses, holds the book far off. elevates his chin and reads: . "No respectable white man can be guilty of crime " "That, gentlemen. !s enough. I leave the case In vour hand?. E?eh iuror chanced his quid, looked at his neighbor, nodded and without leaving their stats, rendered a loud and emphatic verdict of "Not guilty, nnd then joined in three cheers for the defendant and his lawver. The undertaker fo'ind fault with the storv because nobody in it had been killed The dent'st remarked that If anybody de served killing It was the broker. Japanese Beggars.

And lately two graduates of Swarthmore were united la wedlock going to show that co-education. Is not a failure. The recent fate or a col lege girl, who killed herself because she could rind no one to love her In the fo Ynantlc way she desired, has led someone to make the suggestion that a chair of flirta tion should be adopted in women's colleges. The particular girl in question was too busy studying tvhen her cheeks were yet blooming and her eyes yet bright to thlnlc of love, and later she found herself ut terly without the ability to charm men. There are many other women at the pres ent day who are putting all their young energies into tho race for fame, and who will discover, when they arrive at the feminine age corresponding, to the bache lor's fortieth year that, like him, they yearn for the Joys of domesticity, for the quiet and peace of a home, and they will find themselves devoid of the charms that win a husband.
