To this the title page informs you. "is annexed a short catechism." The title page concludes with the in formation that the volmo was "printed for J. Taylor, at the 'Ship' in St. Paul's churchyard, and .7. Newton over against the pump in Little Britain, 1701." The ttev. Russell states that he came into the possession of this valuable book while a student at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire. It was giv en to him by an old man who lived at Grafton, Vt. The book was taken from an English officer who was cap tured by the Continental troops at the battle of Trenton, which was fought in 1770. The old man who gave the Rev. Russell the book, stated that it had been handed down by members of his family from generation to generafTon- The leaves of the book are stain ed with blood.

Goodrich, republican state chairman, was at state headquarters in the Claypool hotel for a short time last night, stopping in Indianapolis en route from Winchester to Chicago, where he is receiver lor the C, C. & I j. Railroad company. Mr. Goodrich declined to express his views as to what should go into the republican state platform. "I have my views," said Mr. Good rich, "but it is not for me to say. I have for some time been trying to learn from republican leaders from over the state what planks they would have placed in the platform and all the information I get will be tu-ned , over to the committee on resolutions at the state convention." It is known, however, that Mr. 1 Goodrich is a tariff revisionist and that be has been advocating a tariff revision plank in the stab? republican plat-form for the last four years. j "Had I my way," Mr. Goodrich told one of his friends recently, "a tariff revision plank would have gone into the platform at the last state eonven- j Hon." "! Mr. Goodrich has often expressed to j his friends his opposition to local op-j tion. j "He has often told me" said one of j his friends last night, "that in his 1 opinion the temperance question ought' to be eliminated as a political issue."! you enough to pay them all off.

F. IL EDMUNDS, OpUcian. STANDS FOR TEMPERANCE. IXIE Two Lectures Will Be Given on the E. M. Haas Likes Local Option Meas ure. Edgar M. Haas, republican chair- man of the Sixth congressional district ' has positive opinions in reference to ! two subjects that should be treated of in the republican state platform. One of these is the tariff, and he is in favor of a plank declaring for a proper revision, by proper methods, ' one of which, in his opinion, should be by holding a special session of con- gress that would make consideration of the tariff its chief duty. The other subject on which Mr. Haas favors taking advanced ground as a party is that of temperance. He declares that there should be no re peal of any temperance laws now on the statute books, but that if anything they should be added to. He favors a strong local option feature, believ ing that through that and other legis lation, practically all conditions that arise can be met.

When asked today what some of the planks in the democratic state platform should be, State Chairman U. S. Jack son of this city said that undoubtedly local option should and would be one, but refused to make any statement further than this. "I do not presume to govern the democratic party, regardless of ru mors to the contrary," said Mr. Jack son. 'It is not my place to state what the rank and file should or would do." He stated, however, on the author ity of himself, after being thoroughly advised by personal observation, that the democrats of Indiana are thor oughly united and In harmony and that there would be no friction what ever when they adopt their state plat form. "One thing I can state to a certain ty," said Mr. Jackson, "and that is the democrats of Indiana are all for Bryan." EXPECTS SOME DIFFERENCES. John E. Osborne Declares Platform Can Not Suit Everybody. Greensburg, Ind., March 16. John E. Osborne, democratic chairman of the Sixth district, in reference to what be believes should be the prin cipal plank in the democratic state platform, has the following to say: "There will he differences of opin ion this year among democrat in In diana as to what planks their state platform should contain. The repub licans will be met with the same con ditions. It will be impossible for either party to write a platform which will meet with the approval of every one in the party. As a member of the state committee I will have no more to say or do with reference to what our platform ban contain than any other member of our party." A few days ago the Palladium print ed an article in which it was stated that County Clerk Penny was so down-hearted by the small number of marriage licenses Issued the past six weeks that he was thinking of offering prizes to stimulate matrimony. Ho states that since the publication of this article he has received several in quiries concerning this proposed scheme. One woman informed Mr. Penny that the would marry if he would offer a good prize and get her a man. She said she was a widow ami that she would insist that her next husband be a man w plenty of money and fond of travel. Mr. Penny told her that if there were a number of this class of bread-winners on tho market, he did not think there would be a slump in the matrimonial market. Th Was rise Of 1.1 A.
