Anna Pahrman, a young lady of twenty summers, residing in La Porte is rejoicing over the fact that she wears a corset, for had it not been for that particular article of clothing she would have no doubt have been a subject for a coroner's inquest by this time. While standing about a shooting gallery Wednesday, where a number of men were trying hard to ring the bell, a stray bullet struck the young lady in the stomach, and, had it not been for the stays of her corset she would no doubt have been fatally in jured. Miss Pahrman was removed to La Porte, where a physician was called and upon examination it was found that the leaden missile entered her stomach near the navel, passed into the abdomen and penetrated the mus cles of the stomach. In its course no vital organs were touched. After treatment at the hands of the La Porte physician the young lady re turned to the picnic grounds to finish out the day of hilarity.

The LaPorte Argus-Bulletin has the following. to say about the game between the Hammond and the La Porte team: ' .-With the memory of a 14 to 2 score, "recorded In the year 1905, on the Hammond "diamond, rankling in the breasts of the LaPorte players, a different tale was unfolded yester day afternoon at Pine Lake park. The paens of victory were sung with exultant voices. It was a song of triumph that was wafted from grandstand, from the bleachers and from the field, which had been in vaded by the record breaking crowd. Hammond, with all her boasted prowess, Hammond, supporting the mighty Donahue, flushed with a vic tory, won over the hard hitting Sene cas last Sunday, when not a hit was made off his delivery, came, played, but did not win. Hammond, back ed by the plethoric purse of her fans, pocketbooks bulging with the long green, .came with visions of victory. There was to be nothing to it La Porte was to be led as the lamb to the slaughter her sports were to suffer financial depression, and the doughty players from the slaughter houso town . were to return with a victory and Donahue was to be hailed and crowned as the premier slabsmen. The story of triumph is pleasant to telL Six for LaPorte, three for Hammond, and the tale is narrated. INDIANA HARBOR.

Saloonkeepers Are Jubilant. The saloonkeepers 'are jubilant over their victory yesterday and it is now generally believed that the Sunday closing question has been settled once and for-all time by the verdict of the jury in the case of the State vs. Gus Meeker. It is freely predicted that Ham mond will be wide open next Sun day, and it is said that there is not a jury that could be empaneled in the city that will convict a saloon keeper of violating the Sunday clos-1 ing law. When interviewed by a Lake County Times reporter yesterday, Prosecuting Attorney Boone was very dubious as to the possibility of securing a jury of twelve men in this city who would vote for the convic tion of the saloonkeepers, no matter how convincing the evidences of guilt were. When asked what he intended to do in the remainder of the cases to be tried. Mr. Boone said that it was his duty to prosecute them to the best of his ability, but he does not believe his efforts will be of any avail. Attorney Gavit Satisfied. Mr. Gavit, the attorney for the saloon interests seemed satisfied with the results of the trial, and of course, as legal representative of the li quor men, he approved of the verdict of the jury. He defended the action of . the twelve men by arguing that the pro vision which was in the old Nichol son law requiring the saloon-keepers to close on holidays, had been repeal ed and that there had been no re- enactment of a law to cover the clause that had been repealed. On the other hand, Mr. Boone de nies that the provisions under which the saloonkeepers are accused of voi lating the law, have been repealed. He says that although the old law was revised the revision affected only certain clauses of the old law and unless the old law is directly in con flict with the provisions of the new, the old law shall stand as first en acted.

Stock market opened very firm this morning with St. Paul the pronounced leader. The trade in this security being on a very large scale with fluctuations covering a range of four points for the day. Opening at' 170 and on covering by shorts it was advanced to. 173 1-2. There were rumors in the street to the effect that the buy ing was. for the Hill-Harriman crowd. American Ice securities were again the feature in the industrial list, the market for this stock the past few days has been extremely weak on ru mors of adverse legislation, and there has been a very large and unwieldy short interest created in it.

CHICAGO LETTER. Chicago, July 6. Wheat . The market was dull and weak all dur ing the session without any partic ular feature. There was several cargoes of wheat worked for export at Kansas City and Duluth today, this did not help prices any. Weather conditions favorable for growing crops in the northwest. Movement of wheat from southwest is expected to increase in the next few days. Wheat closed weak at about the low est prices of the day. Corn. Rather weak and lower on fine prospects for the growing crop and liberal offerings from country holders. Missouri crop report shows an improvement of eight points com pared with last month and was used as a bear factor. Oats were dull also and followed closely the trend of corn, the same class of selling again apparent in both July and September. The market closed weak at about lowest prices for the day. Provisions were strong and higher within a very narrow range of prices. Speculation in provisions confined ex clusively to the professional element.
