Over a year ago an old woman ap

In her declining years was forced to
earn a living as best she could.
At first she succeeded in earning
"enough to provide the comforts of life
but constant brooding over the in
justice that had been done her has
unbalanced her mind and consequent
ly reduced her earning capacity un
til one by one she lost a chair, a table
a carpet, some dishes until even the
three little rooms were bare.
The police had informed her from
time to time since last January that
a writ of restitution could be served
upon her unless she vacated the
But the woman was under
the jnpression, whether founded in
. fact pr pot, that she could make the
Uinsy cottage her home as long as
she aicj.the, taxeson it. She claims
she had done this and was therefore
entitled to the house for a year but
Louie Roth "the agent for J. L. Shef
field demanded possession and of
course the police could do nothing
but enforce the law.
Officer Shine approached the house
and opened the door. The old lady
was washing the few remaining
strands of her reddish hair. The of
ficer told her of the object of his mis
sion and in spite of her pleadings
which grew louder and louder and
was finally turned Into the most
caustic vllliflcatlon, the baliff be

The job was not a hard one, for
with Fred Frank as helper the dark
musty rooms were soon emptied of
A half hour later when the crowd
of curious spectators had dispersed,
threatening rain clouds covered the
sky and it began to rain.
The old woman surrounded by
her household goods was still wash
ing her scattered strands of hair.
As she felt the drops of rain upon
her face she looked up and saw the
threatening clouds. "They'll suffer
for this," was all the poor old soul

Special to "Lake County Times
Crown Point, June 22. On invest
igatlon here,, it is found that Mrs
Clay R. Lawrence who was connected
with the trunk sensation at Ham
mond, was registered at the hole
here for over a week, leaving on
'June 20th.' "She claimed to be un
married and seemed to have plenty
of money. She called up Chicago by
long distance every day and severa
times Chicago attorneys were out to
see her. On one occasion an elderly
gentleman from Chicago called to
see her but refused to register.
She told the proprietor of the
hotel that she was having con
siderable trouble and was in consul
tation with her attorneys every day.
Mrs. Lawrence is still in Hammond
and was seen at the late suburban
last evening by the ever present re
porter, bidding an affectionate fare
well to the same elderly gentleman
"who was seen in Crown Point.

Mullberry Pie This Winter.
Mrs. Lyons of South Hohman
street has a remarkably prolific mul
berry tree. Each year for the past
four or five years the tree has in

bushels of berries have already been

Buffalo calves, as a rule, are bora
In April and May. They are active,
vigorous little creatures, mild eyed as
domestic calves, but possessing much
greater strength and endurance. In a
few seconds after birth they can get
on their feet, and In twenty minutes
they are fit to fight for their lives.
Usually it is unnecessary for them to
defend themselves at this tender age,
as a buffalo cow is quite capable of at
tending to any business which may
arise In connection with the defense of
her precious baby., Washington Star.

THE INDIANA STATE DEBT
Official Figures Showing How Two
Parties Have Handled Financial
Affairs cf a Great State. j
The following are official figures on
the Indiana state debt. The dark fig-
ures show result of period of Demo-
cratic control; the light figures of Re-
In 1861 it was $10,179,267.00 ;
In 1870 it was 4,167,507.02 j
In 1880 it was 4,998,178.34 '
In 18S2 it was 4,876,608.02 i
In 1S95 it was 7,520,615.12 '
Aug. 1, 1902 it was.. 2.8S7.615.12 j
August, 1904 it wa3.. 2,162,615.12 !
May, 1906 it was.... 805,615.12
All the state debt has now been
wiped out except a series of bonds
which are not payable until 1910.
What These Figures Show. '
These official figures show that dur
ing three periods of Republican ad
ministration in Indiana since 1860,
the state debt has been reduced In the
aggregate over $12,000,000, a sum suf
ficient to extinguish it but for corre
sponding increases under periods of
That during every period of Demo
cratic administration the state debt
ind interest were increased.
That never before in Indiana's his
tory has the state debt been reduced
more rapidly than during the present
era of Republican administration be
ginning with 1895; and, it may be ad
fled, that never in the history of In- i
diana was the state's debt increased ;
eo rapidly as during the era of Demo-i
tratic control between 1885 and 1891. i
That no era of Democratic state ad-
ministration, taken as a whole, during ;
the past half century, has resulted in
a decrease of the state's indebtedness;
on the contrary, that the debt itself
is & monument to Democratic fiscal
and legislative mismanagement.
These figures are cold facts rec
ords of the way the two parties have
managed the state's affairs. A care
ful consideration and examination of
their records should satisfy every
voter which party is worthy the con
fidence of the people In looking after
the business affairs of Indiana.
WHY NOT PROHIBITION?
Conservative Reasons Why Many Be
lievers In Temperance Are Not
Third Party Voters.
In a thoughtful editorial the always
sober, sensible and conservative Mad
ison Courier says In answer to the
question, "Why not prohibition?"
"Chiefly because the people are not
prepared for it, and hence it could not
be enforced. It might be said, also,
if they, the people, were truly in fa
vor of it it would not be needed. This,
however, is only measurably true.
There will always be some people who
will drink to excess, as there are oth
ers who will go to excess in other di
rections. ... Inasmuch as the people gov
ern mthigecttn try, laws to be effec
tive must meet their approbation, and
ultimately be enforced or not accord
ing to their will. Moreover, it is not
the gospej method to rely upon force
but upon conviction and moral sua
sion. Jesus did not go to Rome and
secure legislation establishing his
kingdom. He appealed to the hearts
and consciences of Individual men."
The Courier thinks, too, that both
Democrats and Republicans would fa
vor prohibition if they were convinced
that it would put an end to intemper
ance: "Opposition to prohibition or refusal
to leave the Republican or Democratic
party in order to secure prohibition,
does not mean that Republicans or
Democrats are favorable to intemper
ance it simply means that they are
convinced that prohibition is not the
right way or the best way to deal with
Hits the Binder Twine Trust.
Indiana farmers are jnst beginning
to learn that they can secure as good
binder twine at the Michigan City
prison as is made, and at a cost lower
than the trust prices.
Two kinds are made at the prison,
Standard and Sisal binder twine,
which are sold at the same price.
there being no difference in the cost
of production. Following Is the scale:
50 to 1,000 Jbs 9 cts. per lb,
1,000 to 10,000 lbs.... 89; cts. per lb.
10,000 lbs. and over. ,.8H cts. per lb.
Nothing less than 50 pounds is sold.
are filled in rotation as re-
ceived. Good notes due September 1
following the sale and without inter -
est if paid at maturity are accepted In
sales of 500 pounds or more. As a
matter of economy and convenience
many farmers have found it satisfac
tory to unite their orders in clubs, and
a great many shipments will be made
this season on that system. The in
stitution guarantees the quality of the
twine and treats all customers every
where with equal courtesy and im
partiality. 1 Orders are received at th
Businesslike State Administration.
In the past ten years under Repub -
lican administration in Indiana, the :
! state debt has "been reduced from j
seven and one-half millions to less
than one million dollars, and during"
that time through the same business- ;
! like and economical methods the per j
I capita cost of maintaining the penal)
! and benevolent " institutions of the j
state has also been . greatly reduced. !
i Ten years ago the per capita cost of j
i maintaining these institutions under
Democratic government when prices
were , low, was more than $18 more
i than now under Republican direction
! with prices much higher. This eco
1 nomical. manner of conducting th
state's affairs Is appreciated by th
people - - '- -
