'"I find the people arc demanding a local option law," said Carl Minton, attorney for the Indiana Anti-Saloon league, at Indianapolis yesterday. "There is not much talk of a $1,000 license measure," he added. "So far as the league in Indiana is concerned, our big fight will be made for a local option law, with the county as a unit. "Some men may favor a high li cense law. Other men may ask that the local option law make the town hhip and war dthe unit. Hut the league will try to pass a law which Phall make the county the unit. "Wo believe that we can get such a Taw through next session. "We have under the remonstrance provision of the present law, local oj tion in townships and wards. A law to hold elections by townships and jrards would have no more effect than the remonstrance has today. We want to settle the saloon question, 'dry' or 'wet' by counties. We want the coun ties to speak as counties, and stand or fall by the vote. "It is not settled, as yet, whether (he proposed bill shall provide for an election every two years, or every three years. In some places the ques tion is passed on at the polls every four years. I am Inclined to the be lief that we will try for a two-year or three-year law not more than three years between elections. There is no mistake as to the demand of the peo ple for a county local option law. They are ready for it, and they will try to see to it that the lawmakers elected next fall, are in favor of such a measure." The advocates of the county local option measure have been much In terested In the attitude of leading democrats over the state, towards the local option proposition. . The Anti Saloon league will welcome any assis tance from any source, so long as that help Is directed to the passage of a county local option law. The league leaders are of the opinion that a town ship and ward local option law would trengthen the Moore law, but that they are in a position to demand more than that. They feel confident that public sentiment will support and de mand a county local option provision. They will proceed on the larger the ory for what they regard as the great er reform. PURSUED BY TRAGEDY James Bradley Victim of At tack Made on Him Many Years Ago. STORY OF HIS ILL FATE. Lawrenecbuig, Ind., Feb. l.A ling ering result of one of the most shock ing tragedies in tho history of Dear born county came in the death of James Uradley. use thirty-five years, an inmate of the Dearborn county in firmary, from tho effects of a blow re ceived on the head when he was a child over thirty years ago. The Bradley family was one of poor farming people living in a log cabin on Tanner's creek several miles from this .ity. With the family boarded a la borer named William McDowell, who entered the home one afternoon in the nummer of lS7d and with an ax mur dered Mrs. Bradley and five children. James escaping almost by a miracle. One blow from the murderer's weapon struck him glancingly on the head, rendering him unconscious. Melvina. a sister, then only nine months old. was cot nioleated. James Bradley, who was then about lour years old, recovered from the ef fects of the blow in a few hours and fled into an adjacent cornfield, where he lived for two days, subsisting on wild berriea until his cries attracted th attention of passersby. James Bradley, until a few weeks ago nppeared to have suffered no ill effects from the terrible experience through which he passed as a child, when he began to complain of a dull pain in his forehead. This symptom gradually grew more grave, until he expired un der the care of three physicians, who pronounced the death due to the injury received so many ears ago.

Jt The Pittsburg Orchestra, which will be heard in Richmond on Wednesday evening, Feb. 26th, in the coliseum, under the direction of Mrs. Ona B. Talbot, manager, is one of the few great symphony orchestras of Ameri ca, tind its enormous expenses are tin der-written by a half hundred Pitts burg millionaires. It has earned its present high artistic position by rea son of having unlimited funds at its disposal guaranteed by those public spirited men. The present director Mr. Emil Paur, was appointed at the beginning of the season of 194-1905 coming to Pittsburg at the then high est point in his honored career. From being companion and disciple in his earlier years of Von Bulow, Mr. Paur's maturer period includes five years as director of the Gewandhaus concerts at Leipsic, and five years as director of the Boston Symphony or chestra. Completing his contract in Boston, Mr. Paur removed to New York city, having been elected direc tor of the New York Philharmonic so ciety. While in New York, Mr. Paur conducted all the Wagner works and the German operas given at the Metro politan Opera house, and in leading cities of the country. During his two years of rest in Europe, 1902-1903 and 1901, Mr. Paur frequently acted as guest conductor in London, Madrid, Berlin, St. Petersburg and Vienna. Mr. Paur succeeded Victor Herbert, who was director of the Pittsburg or chestra from the fourth season to the tenth, coming with the organization in the fall of 1S9S, and leaving it in the spring of 1904, during which period he brought the orchestra up to a very high artistic standard, and made it a popular organization not only in Pitts burg, but in all the country traversed in the orchestra's regular touring sea son. The first director was the lato Frederick Archer ( who came to Pitts burg in the fall of 1S95 at the call of the trustees of Carnegie library, t establish free organ recitals in Pitts burg for the first time. Mr. Archer early demonstrated that the city had gained an accomplished musician and director, as well as a great organist, and it was his broad outlook, great ability and untiring energy which laid the foundations for the preseut splen did Symphony orchestra now so well known throughout the United States.

Better take time by the forelock and reduce now in a natural way if you would keep intact the youthful symmetry of 20 through the trying years of middle age. Go to the druggist and ask him for V ounce Marmola, ounce Fluid Extract Ca cara Aromatic, and O1 ounces Syrup Simplex. Take a teaspoonful after meals and at bedtime. Mix them at home if you wish, but see that the Marmola comes to you in a sealed package. This mixture makes firm fleshed, well-formed women out of flabby, shapeless ones. It animates their stomachs to burn uy the food fats in stead of allowing them to gather at the waist line. Without disturbing the diet or requiring exercise to help it out it dissolves the fat away just where needed the most. It has been MUSIC.

Kolp has filed suit In the circuit court to have the title of , the North Ninth street property, ! where she lives, transferred from the name of her mother, Mrs. Sarah Pax son, insane, to the name of the plain-; tiff. When the property was pur-j chased it was the desire of Mrs. Pax- son to have the title of the property ; vested in her name.

The bill also incorporates a provis ion for a uniform standard of road beds.

In the year 1S07, a total of i026 collisions were reported, involving loss of life. 776; injured 9,311 and a money loss of $6.299.&6s. ! Thus in the two years. 1,380 were killed; 17.455 Injured and a pecuniary loss to railways of more than eleven millions. Is it not time to seek a change? There are 42,000 passenger cars now in use to be replaced with steel-con- : structed cars in the next ten years. This is surely not too much for a suf fering public to ask.
