SURPRISED Caory Column Editor "Here" a rabacribw who wants to know how to Snaks Editor "What aus 'lof Gas Case Trial Set. (Connersville News.) The suit of Henry county parties,! by whicn it is sought to permanent-rl'story ly restrain the Richmond Natural Gas company frcm operating gas pumps in that county, brought Bare on change of venue, is set down for trial on Tuesday next.

The home of tbe late Col. W. T, Dennis, from which Le was buried this week, was the scene of a wed ding last evening. Harry Prescott, his grandson; was to have been mar ried on Saturday evening last to Miss Luther of Chicago. Miss Luther came to this city, but on account of Mr. Dennis' unexpected fatal illness the marriage was postponed; and fur the same reason the wedding was a quiet one, only the immediate family being present. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. E. O. Ellis. Mr. Prescott leaves on the first of November for Texas, where he has a fine position with the Texas Pacific railway, and his wife will f alloy him as soon as he is located. t Why Not Wait. Inquiry is rife as to the meaning of council in the matter of filling the streets and alleys with poles again for tbe municipal electric light .Haat An ordinance is now pending in council which is really a move in the right direction such that even the companies who have poles to move under its provisions are not object ing to it. feeling that it will obviate trouble in the future, by which many poles are to come down and joint poles made to do for all companies as far as can be done. This will remove a good many poles. Now the promoters of the municipal electric light plant disregard this ordinance. Poles are being put up all over the city with out regard to the rights of the property owners. Poles are being put on sidewalks where there are other poles with but a singe system of wires on them and within six feet of the new ones. Seems as if it would have been well to wait until the ordirance was in effect and then try and live up to its provisions. Getting Ready to Move. The American Lawn Mower" com pany which is made up of Richmond people almost entirely, at Muncie, will get into full operation inside the coming three weeks. Mr. Spencer says that they will not begin moving from Richmond, however, before the first of January.

The Hoosier Drill men who were here this week told many a cood while about the office, and this one is said to be a fact, on one of them who married a Ric hmond girl. It seems that the hotel where he used to stop at Muncie, when on the road, nearly always had honey on the table. This time be had his wife along. He had told her about the honey part of it. There was nice hot biscuit for supper but some way the heney was missing. The Drill raau called the waiter over and said "See here, where is my honey?" The waiter grinned "You mean the lit tie black-haired one: she don't work here anymore. " Billy Wilson, who told the story, said the other fellow never did get it fixed up with his wife, which is cur reason for omit ting names. Earlham Cemetery. Attention has often been called to the bad provision which is wade in Earlham cemetery for tbe burial of the pauper-. Mr. Brad bury this morn ing in speaking of the matter said that it should be different and that it lay with the city and township to have it so. He says that the ground, something over an acre, was bought by tbe two from the original owners of the ground and not from tbe cemetery people. He has made a proposition to the city that if they "Vill haul the dirt to make the fill there the cemetery will supply in any quantity, free c? charge He says that ??200 spent in Iiaulintr the dirt and levelling it would be all the expense necessary to make this as good as any other part of the ceme tery. The dirt would only have to be hauled a few rods.' Miss Rhoades had interested herself in the matter, but now that she is going away un less some one else takes it up it will be dropped, and it is really a matter of necessity.
