Since the days of our prandmothers, there has nerer been snch a rape for trimmings npon ladies' dresse and suits as this year; and the most popu lar is the so called French fold, made from bias, material, put upon the dress in a Tariety of styles. To trim dresses at the present day without the vari ous Sew ing Machine attachments would be an im posihility. A .voting man in Chicago has jnst invented an improvement for all Sewing Machines, with which to put on the fold as fast and as easily as an ordi nary hem can be made. The same implement is also a practical Hinder and tok1 llemmer. It is being made and sold bv the 1-eslie Rufller Company, and is a valuable addition to the Sewing Machine. It is called Koming's French Trimmer, and will be sold by all Sewing Machine Agents. Leslie Ki jtlku Co. 848 Wabash Av. Chilli. John S.

Its weekly visits reader, tlxrfu Can no doubt help expand; And If thou wilt this favor show, Now give a helping hand. West Tr., Feb. 21st, 1873. Communication. Argos, Ixd, Feb. IT, 187.1. Mr. Editor: In last week's commu nication from this place, over the signa ture of "Brimstone," we noticed some very remarkable statements, and for fear the fumes ot this itch-killing druar may be inhaled by some of your readers who are not acquainted with its modu.' operandi, we desire to administer a corrective. "Brimstone" entertains a very unfavora ble opinion of Methodist's and Metho dism has even declared publicly that he would never enter the church building at this place and we are not therefore greatly surprised at his misrepresenta tions and low flings at the church officers. Yet they, need correction. lie, "Brim stone," says. -"It seems that the Trustees of the M. E. church, had taken another freak, etc., and concluded that muic might be a worse thing in a church than politico I speaking, and very unceremoniously clos ed their doors against that class ; hence they were comjielled to repair to the school house for their entertainment. Oh ! consistency, thou art a Jewel." Now, what he means by "freak, etc," we are unable to understand, and we are sorry he was unable to complete the para graph. Probably he was suddenly taken with one of his peculiar "freak," with which the members of this community are well acquainted. Now wj love "mv tic-" but he says the Trustees of the church ";icere?,w!.7y" closed , their doors against the singing class, which is simply a falsehood, else he does not know the definition of the word " unceremoniondy." Now here is the truth, the whole truth,, and nothing but the truth in the matter. Sometime ago, probably a .year, the musical portion of our citizens were giving the audience room of the church, for the purpose of holding a meeting to make arrangements for a singing school. "Brimstone," not withstanding . the declaration that he would never enter the building, solicited the use of the church, and with remark ble dignity (!) presided over the meeting. And nearly ever since, the singing school has been held in the lecture room of the church, notwithstanding the Trustees were frequently informed of bad order and behavior : even one of the members of the class complained to the Trustees, and requested them to be present to preserve order. When the teacher asked one of the Trustees for the use of the audience room for a public rehearsal, she wa3 in formed of the reports of disorder and mis behavior, and requested to ask the permis sion of the second Trustee, who resides in town, so that the responsibility might not all rest with one. She said nothing to the Trustees to whom she was referred, but indignantly went to the shool-house These are the facts in the case, and the cause of "Brimstone's" violent spasm. There has been one "political" speech in the house by Gen. Packard. The Gen eral was here on a day too windy to speak in the grove, and there was no oth er place than the church large enough to accommoda'e the crowd. After due con sideration the use of the church was given him, and tendered this opponent should he desire it. The best of order prevailed, and we have never been condemned for our action. We have stated facts, but we have a word more in conclusion. Y7e have been credibly informed that "Brimstone" was excluded from any par ticipation in the music school, for reasons it will be better not to make public. Suf fice to say the lady teacher feared damage in character by association with him. We think he is not a proper person to at tack the church or its officers, and would advise him to be careful how and where he throws stones. One of the Trustees. Several Democratic papers have taken quite a liking to Rev. R. L. Collyer, since he took occasion to slander Mr. Golfax and other distinguished Republicans, in a sermon recently delivered in Chicago. Tbey are not so much opposed to politi cal preftchinc as they used ta be. There is hop for thm yet. Inwood, Ind , Fob. 18th, 1873. Friend Millikan. Presuming that a few items from this place might be of interest, I have taken the responsibility upon myself to try to give them. The public schools of this place nnd vi cinity are closing, some have closed, and others will close next week. But fortu nate or unfortunate as it may be lor the Roberts' settlement, they procured a teach er, who it is said, got to hugging some of the big girls too much to suit, some of the patrons, (we do not know how this is will leave it for his beautiful young wife to decide) so they dismissed him, and af ter a vacation of three weeks they have procured the services of Prof. North, of Argos. They have yet about five weeks of school. Business nbout this place seems to be quite lively, especially In timber, lumber and wood. From the amount of timber and lumber in the yard oi Lee Bro's & Dickinson's, we would think they were thorough business men, also, Mr. Geo. Shafur, successor to Croup & Shafer, is alive in the lumber business, at least we should think so from the amount of logs in his yard. Others are bringing in an immense amount of lumber to this place for shipment, from the abundant forest which surrounds our little village. The office of Lee Bros & Dicksons, was broken open and relieved of some of its contents, though lucky for the firm, there was no money in the office. Also, the saloon of C. is 8. Fisher, whs entered, and an over coat taken which belonged to one of the proprietors ; but I cannot sym pathize very much with iram, for l.e sells the "lire-water," which causes men to do every kind of meanness conceivable, and perhaps it was one of this kind that per petrated the deed. I am liespectfully, ito., Fkaules?. The Indiana" Temperance Law. Appended will be found a careful ab stract of the Temperance bill, which pass ed both houses of the Legislature. The abstract contains every provision and re quircment of proposed law, and stripped of verbiage is as follows : Section 1 prohibits the sale or giving away f any intoxicating liquor by any poison, with a view to its being drank oil the premises unless such vender shall have tirt obtained a license. Section 2 provides that anyone seeking it liceie ni'.ibt deposit with the County Auditor, twenty days before the meeting of (Ik! jjoard of Commissioners, a petition giving his street number, ward, etc., and praying for the liceuse or permit, which petition, must also be signed by a majori ty of the voters in the ward, towii or township, as the case may be. L'pon such petition the Board may issue a license. Section : requires that befoie the license is granted the Commissioners shall re quire from the l:censee a properly execu ted bond in $:i,O0N, with two good freehold securities, conditioned upon the payment by the licensee of all lines, forfeitures and penalties assessed upon him under the provisions of the law. Any crson or persons may bring separate suits, and tli bond my lie rocovered upon in any court of competent jurisdiction; but the aggre gate amount recovered ou the bond shall not exceed sjvtyXMl, and in case the bond is exhausted by recoveries a new one shall be exacted. Section 4 fixes the manner of determin ing the voting population of a precinct by making the last proceeding Congressional election the basis, and attaches a penalty ot'$")t) to $100 to the act of signing a pe tition by one not a qualified voter. Section 5 requires the licensee to keep a copy of his permit conspicuously posted in bis place of business, and declare that conviction of violation of any provision of the law shall work a torteit ot the per mit. Section 6 forbids the selling or giving of liquor to minors. Section 7 declares all places where liq quors are sold without license to be nui sances, binning within the provisions of the nuisance hCt. Section 8 declares that any person who shall by selling or givinn away liquor cause in whole or in part the intoxication of any person shall be liable for and com pelled to pay a reasonable compensation to any erson who may take charge of and care for 'such drunken person, which charge may be recovered in any court of competent jurisdiction. Section 9 declares it unlawful to become intoxicated. Any person becoming intoxi cated shall on conviction be fined five dol lars and be required on his trial to tell where he procured' his liquor, and on re fusal to do so there shall be added to his punishment imprionment of one to ten days. Section 10 prohibits the sale of liquor on Sunday, holidays, all election days ; al so between the hours of 9 p. yi. and 6 a. m. of every other day, under a penalty of from $5 to $25 for every sale Section 11 guards against evasion of the law by agents, etc. Section 12 provides that any husband, wife, child, parent, guardian, employe or other person who shall be injured in per son or property, or means ot support by any intoxicated person, shall have a right of action in his or her own name, several ly or jointly, against the person or per sons who shall have been instrumental In causing such intoxication by giving oi selling liquor. And any person owning, renting, leasing or permitting the occupa tion of any premises and knowing that in toxicating' liquors are dispensed theiein ; or who, having leased the same fov other purposes shall knowingly permit intoxi cating liquors to be sokl therein shall be come equally liable with the Beller of the liquor for any damages, provided that ex ecution shall first be levied on the prop erty of the vender. A married woman shall have the same right to bring' and control a suit as a femme sole. The un lawful sale or giving away of liquors shall work or forfeit of the lease and all rights of the lessee of the premises. All suits may be brought in any competent court, and judgments recovered without relief. Section 13 provides that when no hus band, wife, child or euardian appears to prosecute under section 12, the Township Trustee or . other officer may prosecute and pay over the amount recovered for tne benefit of the poor. . Section 14 establishes penalties as fol lows : For riolating the provisions of the 1st ana bin sections not less than $10 nor more than $ 50,or imprisonment in jail for nor less tnan ten nor mere than thirty days. For the violation of the 7th section a fine of $20 to $.)0, and the closing of the saloon. Section 15 prescribes the courts which shall have jurisdiction in the various classes of prosecutions, giving Justices jurisdiction under section 12th when the claim does not exceeu $200. Section 16 makes it unlawful to furnish to any person any liquor when he is drunk, or if he is in the habit of becoming intoxicated. The penalty for the viola tion of this section is from $10 to $50. The next two sections prescribe forms of complaint, etc., the next repeals all laws inconsistent with this act, and the final section declares an emergency. Indian apoli Journal. Testimony ot "William Connors. We copy from the Democrat, the follow ing testimony given by Connors in the Thorn burg murder case. It is ra' her in coherent, but we give it as we found it. I am acquainted with Krier; I was ac quainted with him in 1870. I neTer was acquainted with) Thon.burg. I saw him about two wet'ks before this occured. There was- a good many on tlw sidewalk. 1 and Kiier were night-watchmen. Krier hired me, and paid me except watching the mill. I had no conversation with Peter Krier about Thornburg. I knew him as 1 would know one of the citizens here. Showed me the man that pulled out his pocket book, and pulled out piece of scrip, and asked me if I wanted any money. I told him I did not want any money ; I have plenty of money of my own. He asked me how was my pocket book ; Krier said this. I told nim my pocket book was all right. This is ail that happened then got a glass of beer, and went over to the engine. Then Krier paid me whatever U-i was to pay a week. 1 went home that evening alter that. Krier told me Thornburg pulled out a piece of scrip out of his pocket book. Krier made a motion that he was the man pointing to him. The above w-us stated by Thornburg to Krier, as Krier told me. The next time I v.iw h'uu was the l'.Mli of January, at Bender's saloon oh the same night of the scuffle. I suppose that part of it was on the lth, part of it on the 20th. The first I saw him was in Bender's sal oon Bodsell, Brown. Bender nnd wife, but did not know them. 1 did not see Krier there. 1 was in three or four min utes. This was between 1C and 11 o'clock at night, as near as I can remember it. 1 saw Krier two or three minutes alter that pretty close to Bender's. 1 did not see him go in that saloon that night. I walked north on the side-walk. I don't know wWch way Krier went I next saw Thorn -purg in the street with Bodsell. They hatl some low words, and Thornburg was backing into the stieet. Michigan street. I came bark as I heard them talking low. He was standing right there on the side walk. I did not see when I came out and went oil". It was a pretty clear night, a ntuon-light night. The affair did not last very long. He motioned with his arm to come into him, and backed out into the street. I saw Bender come out of his sal oon and speak to Botsell. I do not know where Thornburg went. Krier and I went across the street, and don't know where Krier went. Kept on the street. Saw Thornburg half an hour or so after wards, or the man I thought it Avas. He Thornburg was on the street. I saw him there between the middle of the bridge and the street Krier was with me. We followed him. We saw a man standing on the street-corner there, and we said we could go down and see who it was. That man appeared to be standing there. We got half way down there. We did not increase our speed any at all. We followed him up as far as the bridge. He was then down as far as the tavern. Bill Haslanger's tavern. He went into a lane or an alley-way. near that house. I said to Krier to wateh, to hear if anybody opens a window or anything, and I will go around on the other side and see what he is doin. I went up the west side of Michigan street, down toward the railroad bridge. There is a kind of a crossing there. He went n-rth as far as the lane ; as I came to the corner he jumped out of it. Krier was close by Kelly's blacksmith shop. Krier could hear me talk to him. He run across the street. I asked him what he was doing. If he went one step farther he would shoot his head off. I said you wouldn't shoot a watchman would j-ou. He said G d n you I will shoot you ; at that time he ran back of the shop, and ran to the railroad and went up that embankment close to the railroad bridge. The Ft. Wayne river bridge. I was about the middle of the street. Krier was close by him. Krier did not move. I cannot say how far it was. He speke loud enough for me to hear Krier then came over the bridge and walked up Michigan street; up as far as Blain's, where we heard footsteps. We walked on west side Michigan street. We went down near the corner and. he was on op posite corner. Ve crossed the street on cross-walk, right then we went across to Buck & Toan's store. Weut across Michigan street diagonally. We want to Dickson's store. He went up on the side walk, and we followed up to Pershing's corner. We came np and there was a man standing with Us back to the house. We cause up and I said to him : ain't you the man that thre.iteued to shoot me? He says you are mistaken. I told him I didn't think I am mistaken. I am pretty positive you are the man. He clapped his hand on my shoulder and said, let us go and have a glass of beer. We went up north to Chats, Haslanger's, satoon and went in there. We three went in there and up to the bar. Tliornburg says, let us have some beer. Brenfleck and Lynch looked up; they were throwing dice. Brenfleck looked up and savs : won't you wait 'till you get it? Thornburg says, G d n you, dry up, you don't want to lay a straw ib my way. Brenfleck was poinar lotakeoflhisoveroat,andhad it partly otF and Tng pulled it on again and told mu w u.itz muuiug to'flo with him I spoke to CHaslimger rtid said here is a man that attempted to shoot me once or bar. Think he was- talking to one of these men. Chnrley looked up at Thorn burg and says go; may he go? Thorn burg Mv8 O-d-d-a, I il shoot him now. At this u-Me he made a motion- to his side; coat or est. Soon as he umuIc this motion with his and I struck him I struck him as clos-r as I could around' the elbow-. He tame around and we clinched hold of one another We had a scuffle there a little while, and I finally got him down. He kept hold of my coat -and wouldu't let go, arid struck hint sev eral times with my clab, and he said enough." Struck him on the bead- I stopped as soon as he hallowed enough I leaned up against the counter. Hi head wasn t at any time to the floor. 1 here was some there. He raised up and 8H!?VM?-1rn,you' rn see yn for this, aud Charles Haslanger said give it to nun, the d n son of a bitch I think he said. 1 struck him once on the head af ter he said give it to him. I turned around with my back to the stove and Kner struck him twice with a cane After that he fought there in that posi tion, with one foot stretched out, and his elbow on his knee and holding up his head. He did not say anything after we hit him the last time. lie got up and walked out very shortly alter that. I Aid see some come in there. I saw James llawley standing by the counter' between the screen aud connter f tUi-nh- ti. n. ... ...inn, met uie came in on opening of tire door. I saw ueiiuer ami nasianger come iu there than evenimr. John ami 'ini ir.,,ti - come, in tlwre. I think thev whip in "li quor, also Monroe Thompson. I think they came in at same time. Krier was in? the saloon. These parties came in a very short time after the affray . occurred. It may base been six or seven minutes. I thiuk it was between 1 and 2 o'clock,, from the clock in Haslanger's and Ben der's saloon. I did not observe any ollr er time but that. I went out with Mob roe Thompson to a wagon & horses, close by. Helped him into his waaron. I left these parties in there. Left Krier in the saloon. Saw him fifteen minutes after that. We used to see each other every fifteen minutes. Krier hit him in the head twice. It was a cane. It was about an inch thick. 1 thiuk there was a ferule on it, but can't tell whether it was lead iron or something else. Can't tell wheth er it was on it that night- I dont know whether there was any trouble between him and others at my house or not. I was not at James McKtg's on second! night. 1 remember Krier being at Mo Keg's. It was the week after it happen ed We went down to McKeg's from my own house, that day. At a meeting of the stockholders of the Chicage, Continental & Baltimore Rail way, held at Hnntington, this State, on Thursday last, it was decided to change the name of the road to that of the "Chi cago and Atlantic Railway Company."
