BURGLARIZED Postoffice and Country Brownsville. Store at Liberty Ind., April 23. For the third time recently the postoffice and country store connected therewith, at Brownsville, a little village five miles west of this place, was entered by burglars, the safe was forced and some cash taken, and goods belonging to the store were also purloined.

V NIEDEHEM HIS LAST WORDS BEFORE BE ING HANGED SHOULD BEAR MUCH GOOD FRUIT Sees Nothing Good in the World onprofegBor Richardson to Lecture on Account of His Condition in Life. There Is more in the sayings, of Neidermeier. the fellow who was hanged yesterday in Chicago, as one of the car bran bandits, than he would be given credit for, and it shows plainly the great work that is to be done in the cities of this coun try. He sees the world through a dark glass. Everything is gloomy to him. He is reared in the slrfms of a great city and the beautiful, bright spots in the world he never sees. Uneducated, without advice or help, he gropes in darkness ana is lowerea 10 crime. Whose fault is it? Who is to blame? - -1 1 i - 1 Read his last words before leaving this worm, ana see n mere .can not be tound a subject tor a & unaay ser- mon: lie says: "lhe world is all wrong, inereare u omamuiB V e grow up m tne slums, nan-siarv- ed and always miserable, vv e see our parents work day after day like slaves, year after year, and at the end they die miserably. If I had had plenty of money or an education there might have been some enjoy ment for me. Chicago is full of boys like me, growing up without advice or help. They drift into cheap saloons, and if they are not good-natured, they don't care if they do kill other people." Isn't there something in those words pleadingly pathetic? II e sees his poor father and mother slave their lives away and die poor and mis erable. They are the nearest and dearest to him on this earth; he saw the wav thev lived: he observed how he himself was reared; nothing ap- peared in their lives to add ambition to his, and he died as he lived a sin ner a hardened sinner who could see no God nor think no God.
